  1. Yes but judging by what they said about their support at Colchester I assume 5,500 is twice as many home fans as most other clubs get for a whole season.
  2. @where's the joydid it not occur to you to tell Simpson rather than us?
  3. You are right about the overall picture of course but it has to be said that Rooney is doing a remarkable job in more difficult circumstances than Nigel faces. Would that we were as hard to score against as Rooney has made Derby for instance.
  4. Absolutely agree but it's odd how many cling to the view that you have to have a big man up front as if they have missed how much the game has changed over recent decades.
  5. Straw man argument is a term for a logical fallacy that is thought to go back to at least 1520. Even I wasn't born then! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_man
  6. Nigel has said before that he doesn't believe there is a psychological problem at home but let's face it if we are ahead late in a game we fans tend to get anxious so why wouldn't the players? Everybody expects us to throw it away so inevitably we do. It's a self -fulfilling prophesy. No idea what the solution is though not sitting back and inviting the opposition on to us might help
  7. The puzzle for me is if our players are said to be so much fitter than before why are they having to go off because they are knackered?
  8. I've lost count of how many times this has been explained. Here is the latest thread: https://www.otib.co.uk/index.php?/topic/214252-ffp-or-not-prepared-to-spend-the-actual-stats/
  9. Yes, I'm afraid it leads to a team playing with fear with predictable results.
  10. Please tell me they didn't say he'll be back after the next international break!
  11. If only our owner was a financial expert!
