  1. Seems to me that there were a number of ‘groups’ of fans, all sat at different ‘6-max’ tables. Dean visited each table in turn. So I guess it’s not like there was a whole tonne of people all squeezed around him (like we’d have seen at multiple protests, raves, parties etc). Did Dean and the people he shook hands with all ‘gel’ their hands prior to contact? Maybe? If they did, does that make it ok?
  2. There was no need to add anything after that bit
  3. Happens to all teams. You’re not alone and it’s no ones fault. Just the way it is.
  4. Sorry Dave. I think I’ve been misunderstood. I 100% believe in Holden’s sincerity and genuity. I just wondered if there was a specifically targeted PR effort by the club to engage the fans more. Christ knows they fail on multiple levels in other areas, so they bloody well need to. He may well have been ‘encouraged’ to ‘get the fans onboard’ but I have absolutely no doubt that he is doing it genuinely and big kudos to him for that. I certainly don’t cast any doubt over the genuine nature of Holden, I just occasionally hold a rather more cynical view of how the club operates.
  5. At the moment, any of the 3 centre backs. Because we have no more!!
  6. It’s a lovely problem to have. And certainly better than having the limited choices we had last season.
  7. Totally agree mate. I kinda cynically wondered if the PR campaign was a concerted club effort, but Holden certainly carries it out with a genuine panache. I like it. And if it warms fans to him then great.
  8. I just think he’s unhappy that the “best midfielder in the league” didn’t even get into the squad.
  9. I was critical in the Villa game of him being played as a centre back. Not only that, compounded by having a wholly non-defensive minded wing back in Eliasson next to him. It made the left side incredibly weak. Rowe at LCB. No thanks. Rowe at LB or LWB - yep, happy.
  10. A truly shocking decision.
  11. Happens under lots of managers at lots of teams. 1-0 up. Late in the game. Fans naturally get nervous, and that nervousness gets manifested onto the pitch in edgy, anxious play.
  12. The cynic in me does lean toward it being a specifically targeted PR campaign due the overwhelmingly underwhelming nature of the appointment. But I also don’t doubt that Holden appears to be very genuine in his efforts, and hats off to him for that.
  13. Are they allowed to use their phones at half time?
