  1. He is fast becoming one of the players you would hate to see pick up a knock and miss a few games........MOM for me today,calm,cool and a born leader.
  2. Defensively very good today, Nagy much better second half. Ashley Williams marshalled the defence superbly and mom for me.
  3. People having a pop at Nagy but Josh has been poor as well. Sadly nothing upfront to worry them.

    VAR

    VAR – Video Assistant Referee; main video official whose main role is to check all reviewable incidents and recommend an OFR where a possible clear and obvious error has occurred. The VAR is a current or former qualified referee. This is clearly not what is happening and I agree it is killing the game.
  5. Semenyo is miles away from being ready at this level and in this game was a waste of a sub. He is not a out and out striker and his ball retention is awful. The game was crying out for someone to keep hold of it so Rodri/Palmer would have been the better choice. I still can't get why LJ decided to make a double sub when we've gone 2 up.....bizarre imo. We lost our shape almost immediately and handed the initiative straight back to them and gave them a way back into the game.
  6. If we had been 2 down and came back to 2-2 would people's opinions be different? I was absolutely gutted that we conceded 2 in the last 10 minutes but it's the way we caved in is what's upset most people. We didn't play well but our game management was shocking. I know they have had some decent results but they are bottom for a reason and after we'd gone 2 up we should have shut up shop and played the game out and not give them a sniff but we sat so bloody deep and kept hitting long aimless balls to nobody. I think more people are annoyed at the way we threw away 2 points when we should have had all 3.
  7. WTF bringing Semenyo on again,waste of a sub. We needed somebody to keep the ball not just give it away. Miles away from being a championship player and think we would have been better keeping Watkins on. Bottom line......we were awful.
  8. I was sat watching thinking let's just get to half time at 0-0 then we stick one in. Pretty poor showing by us so far but we're in front so let's step up a gear in the second half. Bentley superb couple of saves.
  9. The tackle was directly in front of the ref and in real time was a nailed on red. Watching the replay only confirmed the decision.
  10. Thierry Henry was the master of the not being active law. He would stray offside with the opposition thinking leave him he's well off and suddenly a different player gets on the ball who has come from an onside position makes the run and passes to Henry who is now onside with nobody near him.....and goal have that.
  11. Not only a good all round keeper but an excellent communicator as well. Always pointing to where he wants players and not afraid to give them a bit of verbal if he thinks they should have closed down quicker or marked a bit tighter. His speed of thought when he gets the ball to get us attacking is something we have lacked for a while and with his kicking game he's up there with the best in the championship.
  12. If we had paid a small fee for him we would be over the bloody moon but a free transfer...................he's a decent player who looks like he's cost a few bob.
  13. I saw the replay and it was a bad one,I'm not sure if the lad who committed the tackle had been booked but it was defo a yellow....
  14. What a difference he has made already to how we play. Runs the channels,good hold up play and decent pace. Always been a very good player at championship level and I'm amazed we got a player that cost 12 million on a season loan. The partnership he is forging with AW is looking very good and they seem to enjoy playing together. The upgrades in the midfield is also key to how we have tweaked our style so far. Fam does a job but the difference between him and Afobe as frontmen is chalk and cheese however I still think Fam will have a big part to play over the course of the season.
  15. Matty is an annoying pest of a player who buzzes around winding up and harrying defenders when he is on.At this level it's just not enough,especially if you are chasing a game.MT gets a lot of love on here but in 80 odd appearances in all comps he has 9 goals.I can't imagine any other striker we've had who wouldn't be slated for that record.Great personality,always gets the crowd going and will be decent at Lg1 .
