  1. I think speculation, albeit fun, should be left to the close of the window end of a January. then we will have a better view of our chances. As it stands now there are teams better than us . Brentford for example mullered us and we somehow got a point. Far smaller club than City but always do brilliantly
  2. Found it on BCFC You Tube (is that the one?) did not get the impression he implied the 'shackles' have been removed, unless that is only a 'snippet' of a bigger interview you are referring to.
  3. Yep. Puts all our pontifications about football into perspective. Football family thinking about them. So awful.
  4. But with wing backs Eliasson will not play ! and we go back to 1 shot on goal 'fare' again in 90 minutes with an isolated striker.. Yesterday was the only time this season we looked a threat for most of the game After yesterday that midfield must surely remain the same
  5. He has said in the past we get over run in midfield with only 3,but with JB AN, HNM that’s got to be our starting three ? One gets crocked , suspended ,what ever , we have others who can slip in like Korey, Casey
  6. Kalas If fit yes, for Baker? Williams has been superb, or will he bring in TM who is our best ‘footballing’ centre half I hope LJ sticks with yesterday’s style line up. And his Tom-bola stays away for rest of the season.
  7. Well well well. on another thread I posted it’s not often I have left the Gate on a Match Day with 3 points and a feeling of well being after seeing a polished decent performance to go with a win and on cue that’s what happened at 4 .50pm. A win and good thrilling performance. Bloody hell! What’s happened So that now puts the cat in with the proverbial pigeons. What is LJ going to do next weekend v Fulham. I reckon LJ is a tinker man. Will he stick with a 442 or what ever it was today, that perhaps 99% of us want him to do, to ensure we take the game to Fulham, or will that leave us to open and will it be another 351 sort of fare to nullify Mitrovic and co. That’s why LJ earns his corn . Me, I would leave it as it is, injuries etc allowing. Again an interesting week and see how he sets us up Saturday. COYR as a glass finest red slips down.
  8. Anyone is available if the price is right. Their is always a point when silly money wins over common sense even if club initially are not of a mind to sell SL and team will not pay silly money mind
  9. I understand and concur the loss of AFOBE shafted us as a threat offensively . It’s the same story. Always few attempts on goal. Even the Cardiff game we won (deep joy) did we actually look good ? No. This season is carrying on from last season in that attacking we are not that good. We have some decent players and really solid spine, but I do not see this identity that he harps on about. It’s a constantly changing situation . I have no doubt Mark Ashton is earning his corn looking towards January
  10. Pleased to see him back in the shirt, but miles from the Korey of 'old' (Understandable) I hope the old Korey will be back in a few weeks. I do wonder mind if he is the future when it comes to our midfield, or the popular past ?
  11. As our pantomime villain Warnock once said ‘LJ has the dream ticket’ He has. The poll was not about our thoughts , but a vote. TBH apart from us being an established championship side he has actually achieved nothing yet. Cannot see him being head hunted by a Prem side so he will go no where unless he actually achieves something tangible, and that is promotion to the top table. And unless we sort out how to be more effective at the Gate still a way off. interesting times mind. Big Jan coming up
  12. when at the Gate , in the final third we are, as a rule of thumb , ponderous at best, with no real cutting edge, and our home form is poor to average with no real expectation of a win when we play. Yes Afobe loss massive in that. Yes, we r better away from home, we can hit teams with pace on break outs from defence. As a home team I expect to see us stretching the opposition. I have not seen that. Last time we did that was Stoke last season, we slaughtered them (and lost ) and their keeper world class on the day we have grinded out a few home wins this season, still to come alive.
  13. Today O'dowda was really anonymous today. I cannot really fathom out what he is and his best position.But agree Massengo Nagy & Brownhill our best midfield . Despite the love in for Korey is he going to be a starter ?
  14. yep, massive upgrade on Pack. As you say let's get him back up to speed.
  15. I will add I was told it was the local of Frank Skinner of 3 Lions song fame. West Brom fan. Last time I went he was in there enjoying pre match. Few years back .
