    Yes, I saw it, he made a recovery run as Bournemouth looked to get inside the gap between LCB and LB, and poked the ball back to Bents.  He then got the ball back a few moments later and kicked it out for a throw-in….and hobbled straight down the tunnel.

    I think i may have lost some interest around this time. Maybe sooner. Maybe by h/t. Maybe even by the 2nd goal. 😂😂

    Cahill in on a free. True.

    Why are we not competing with teams like Bournemouth? Because players like Cahill are on £75k a week!!! There in lies the difference. Wage budget not transfer fees my friend! 



    Exactly my point re parachutes. Most ridiculous rule that exists. They couldnt afford this without them so why should they be allowed such an advantage for the failure of relegation from the PL?! The championship just isnt a level playing field but the money from PL is exactly why we have to try and find our way there somehow!

    We aren’t going to compete with a bankrolled hobby club with parachute payments. What people saw as lack of effort out there today was more like lack of confidence and belief. We never believed we could get anything and gave them too much respect. 

    This. 5 years of PL money and now Parachute payments shows the sheer gulf in revenue for the unfair parachute payment rules. 
    But you can still get stuck in, show little respect and have a bloody go. 
    That was frankly rather pathetic!

    That interview is pure comedy gold.

    Won the second half…

    The boys tried they just ran out of time (first shot on target was the penalty on minute 92)

    Still talking about promotion

    Brilliant, used to hate Joey Barton now I love him

    I had to laugh at the ‘we won the 2nd half’ comment. Also it was ‘closer than it suggests’ was a cracker. 
    How very non-league he is with his statements. Hopefully hes managing to get them out of League 2! ⬇️

    Delusional about getting promotion too. Hilarious!

    Yup agreed. Shame it took us 2 years to replace him- but we now have! 

    Ona side note, and not start comparisons, but Pack was very good for Cardiff today I though, the trade mark reverse pass for their goal especially- sadly with their team, most of the game is I’ve this head. 

    Back to James to finish- Superb. 

    Thought Pack was anonymous tbf. But anyone in a Cardiff midfield would be whilst watching ur centre backs just smash it past you 60 yards all game. 
    What a horrendous style they have. Not suited to Pack at all. 
    Would hate to watch that shite most weeks!

     Personally think it lies with Bentley for letting the weak shot/cross beat him at the near post..............but Hey! Who cares we won........Yaaaaaah!!

    You did see it take a horrendous deflection off of Kalas to divert under him, right?! 🤦‍♂️ 

    If anything it was a shocker Baker not lifting the clearance and firing it straight into the back of Bentley!

  7. Anyone else think he looks very like Weimann too? The commentator got it wrong a few times today too!

    Ive been intrigued by Pring ever since last summers friendlies where he looked direct and capable. 
    Looks a very good prospect.

    You forego them if you get promoted back up - any money gets redistributed back within Prem

    If you got straight down, you only get 2 years, not 3 years PPs - the 3rd year money gets redistributed back within Prem

    EFL does not benefit.

    Elitism at its finest. Would be so much fairer to distribute amongst EFL if or when clubs lose their parachute payments.

    Each game I'd argue we play, the much more we look like a unit.

    How many times did we shithouse the results we needed early season last? Plenty.

    This time the shoe was on the other foot. Best overall performance I've seen in a long time, especially at AG.

    Overall I'd say we desperately need a LB. In this quick transition style, and overall since his injury, Jay's looked large and part mediocre. Same with regards to RB, although a bit early to write Vyner off. Difference being its evident that Simpson's legs have goneversus not being overall good enough defensively.

    I'd say if we can shift Nagy, and get two loans in; easily mid-table if we play to that standard week in week out.

    Could we not switch Pring and Dasilva? 
    Prings strength and height would improve us at LB and Dasilva would be a more than adequate left winger.

    I am not for one second blaming him entirely for tonights result. But honestly, how bad was he. Even the decisions he got right were wrong because there were advantages to be played. Truly abysmal display.

    Eltringham. Only better ( if thats the word ) by ‘Sir Keith’. 
    He actually started ok to be fair but wow, what a shambles. 
    Thought he set a benchmark with the early 2nd half yellow for time wasting, then conveniently forgot to carry on. 

  11. Hi all. Odd one here, and sure its just me! But, for a while now when reading posts, if i return to them later on it used to return to the thread or page i left it at. Now every time i return to a page ( for instance last nights match day thread ), it chucks me back to page 1!

    Any ideas because its quite annoying. Not as annoying as two last kick equalisers in the last two games, or as annoying as MA or LJ’s absolute shite talk admittedly, but still high on my annoyance bar chart. 😂
