  1. Palmer and Afobe ‘clicked’ really well and had a very special footballing relationship going on. Sadly, since Afobe got injured, he (Palmer) hasn’t really ‘clicked’ with anyone else. Like many have said, we get flashes of brilliance amongst the ‘meh’ . Maybe IF Afobe returns then the partnership may resurface - or with a new striker if we land one in January, but until then he will just have to work with who we have - analyse WHY his partnership with Afobe worked so well and try to recreate it with Diedhiou and/or Weimann - or that Spanish bloke who’s name I’ve temporarily forgotten. Maybe it’s our strikers who need to adapt their game slightly when Palmer plays(?)
  2. To quote the late great Fred Wedlock: ’ when it takes you all night to do what you used to do all night..........’ from the Oldest Swinger in Town.... My own Mrs R&W now admits looking back that she should have said ‘yes’ more often - all those wasted moments!!!!!!
  3. I bought a copy once. I was so embarrassed that I quickly wrapped it up inside a porn mag so nobody would see........
  4. Ah 1976....... the long hot summer Top music from that year (from memory - no google) included: ABBA - Knowing me knowing you Billy Ocean - Red Light Spells Danger Steve Miller - Abracadabra Stevie Wonder - Isn’t she Lovely what a fantastic year that was! I remember Chew Valley Lake emptying to the level where you could see the old road into Morton appear!
  5. That’s true - we are all vulnerable to injuries. However, we went into yesterday’s game KNOWING that Afobe was unavailable. Huddersfield had no idea Campbell would be unavailable and built their game plan assuming he’d be playing. Their game (and morale) was disrupted, whereas ours remained on course
  6. I too have been concerned about our habit of conceding. If we are not careful our goal difference could be our undoing. Brentford are snapping at our heels with a GD of +15 compared to our measely +4
  7. Things might have been different if Campbell hadn’t gone off injured. Not trying to detract from a fantastic performance and result, but just just being realistic. Huddersfield still managed to score 2 against us without him. Fulham will be completely different. I’d be very surprised (and delighted) if we could put 5 past them - but would not bet against THEM scoring. LJ will probably make changes to try and counter where he perceives Fulham’s strengths to be. Some call this ‘tinkering’ and others might call it ‘tactics’. I guess what I’m trying to say is that keeping the same squad and formation IS what I would do, but it’s not without it’s risks, so if LJ changes things I won’t be too upset. He knows best (most of the time!!) I do think Elliasson should start though.........
  8. .... it sometimes works - Carey? Scotty? 2 I can think of off the top of my head. Kodjia didn’t please me when he said he was going to a ‘bigger club’ when he went to Villa. That might have been true - and they (Villa) have managed to get promoted but it pissed me off to hear him say it!!! having said that, he is a good striker and I would swallow my pride and WOULD have him back. We need a good striker and he is one at this level. I’d prefer Niketiah though.....
  9. A couple of people have mentioned him - but he did nothing for me at all. His arrival sparked the beginning of the end for GJ. I may be totally wrong, but to me he seemed to be a ‘Billy Big Bollocks’ and the cause of a dressing-room cancer. Like I said, I may be wrong - just gave me that impression.
  10. Forget Niketiah - it’s this guy we need! quick, sign him MA and LJ - before someone else does....!
  11. I get that the football isn’t pretty at the moment, but if we are an ‘opposition manager’s dream’ then only 2 of them have had their dream fulfilled so far this season and all the others must be feeling bemused at how they failed to beat a team so easy to play against and who must only be joint 4th by a continuous run of lucky flukes!!!!
  12. Don’t get me wrong, I like him and wasn’t trying to knock him. I agree he looks like he will be a key player for us. By ‘unfocussed’ I meant he gave away a few sloppy balls and was caught in possession a couple of times - but like I said it was his first game back and Cardiff were pressing hard.
  13. I thought Nagy looked slow and unfocused vs Cardiff - but to be fair it was his first competitive game for some time - and a local derby too - plus we won, so I will allow him that. Hopefully he has been training hard during the international break and will settle in nicely. Does anyone know if Smith will be fit for the Forest game this weekend?
