I’m not one for overreactions and I’m usually quick to jump to Lansdown’s defence (as are most on here, so I’m aware this won’t go down well) but think what you like about this season and whether we finish 6th or not, the fact we were in the position we were at the end of January and the owner interfered with the playing side of things and instructed Johnson to recall a L2 striker that had scored something like 3 in 19 instead of signing the striker Johnson wanted is the reason we may well struggle for 6th place.

I also said on here before that one of the management team was frustrated at Lansdown somewhat in January, and I think with good reason unfortunately. 

Questions to answer Steve if we **** this up.

When was the last poor performance before tonight?  November I would say. Arguably early December. A long time ago. This thread is very premature mate

Completely toothless going forward for 60 mins & the shocking miss by Diedhiou in the first half could be this season’s defining moment.

Not what happened, by all accounts we tried signing multiple strikers but couldn't get a deal over the line, only at the end of the window did we recall Semenyo and as said its not about playing him, but him having 6 months with our coaches to improve. One problem at Newport was he was often played on the wing, if we want him developing as a striker its not helping him.

Because you can ride on confidence when things are going well. As soon as a spanner goes into the works a la Wolves last season and again this year, a slight panic sets in.

Would you bet against another string of win-less game right now?

Should have bolstered the attacking options when we had the chance.

Don't ask that question FFS. The same people after every loss turn up on here to say the same old shoite.

BUT - who should we have bought and at what cost please??

When was the last 90 minute performance? One half vs Wolves, one half vs QPR, one half vs Norwich, the same pattern happened last season. We missed the boat in January.

Am I missing the relevance? If we went toe to toe for a player with Villa they’d end up there, they even sign our best players ffs.

Hogan chose them over us seemingly, a key factor must have been challenging for the title rather than chasing play offs.

Over reaction of the month - the season will never be defined by a loss to Birmingham and even then with 13 games left its much too soon to talk defining moments.

if you look at 7 wins in 9 no one should panic we were never going to beat everyone just look at Leeds (now that is a set back - hooray)

Clueless. They are paying £40k per week for Hogan ....out of our reach.

You need a reality check of who we are how we go about our buisness.

Your last word is the problem. It isn’t just a fee we throw at it and at the end if it doesn’t work it is all good. Throwing 2-3-4 million in january for a loan could cost us signing Dasilva. It could mean we have to sell Brownhill. There are implications to spending. 

We looked. We had a few targets we thought we could afford. They didn’t happen for one reason or another. One thing for certain, even if we fall out of the playoffs, we will be in the mix again next season because we don’t panic.

Bollox, if he was so say meddling in the playing squad and desperate to get him back do you not think he’d be in the squad every week? Or is LJ ignoring Lansdown’s orders to play him? He’s been on the bench once since returning.

I don’t agree with him being recalled btw should of been left where he was.

I know for a fact some Leeds fans are in the home end against us as I proved to you, if you bothered to do your research you’d find out Sheffield United have spent considerably less than us recently and have a smaller wage bill, so there’s two facts. You’re a bellend.

He'd have known from January onwards if he had a good season there would likely be premier league interest, before that we were still finding out just how good he was upfront.

i'm talking about being able to bring someone in mid season during january when the rules allow it.

As for affordable we will never know what we can afford. forget this constant "We are hampered by FFP" because others have to stick by it.Last season Fulham were no longer getting parachute payments and getting less attendances than us yet were able to sign Mitrovic with no issues whatsoever.

We wouldn't have had to pay that though if we had given a decent contract. We waited to late,  gave him a crappy offer he wanted to negotiate. By the time we started to realise what he could do others noticed and he's out of our price range (even then rumours that he did not want to go).

What pointless waste of time  this is.........all started by someone who claims to rarely over react, and has done nothing but over react and insult anyone who disagrees.  The bottom line is that without Mr Lansdown this club would be well and truly fecked...............get a grip, and if you  wish to start a post at least  try to  make it relevant

Boxing Day v Brentford when we scraped a draw and four days later v Rotherham when we walloped their nine men team!

We've done better since then especially away which most of us don't see. But that was another very poor first half tonight leading to a cavalry charge second half when we got one goal but cannot remember Lee Camp having a save to make.

Can we put it right at Deepdale?

Blimey Leady. That was positive!

but you are right about bogey teams. We have so many of them it’s really effing annoying 

PNE a bogey team. The biggest club never to have played in the premier other than us. 

Still not over yet. We never thought it would be easy and there is plenty still to come! We hope!!

What an absolute nonsense thread this is. It ain't as easy as Football Manager. Which striker should we have bought? Assambolonga? Well obviously Boro were not going to sell him to a promotion rival. Hogan? We tried to sign him but he went to Sheffield United. Who else is there? And why is it Lansdown's fault?

It’s not mine or your job to suggest players we should sign, but other clubs managed. Lansdown was content with ordering his manager to recall a player he otherwise probably wouldn’t have, doesn’t sit well with me and many others that.

We tried to sign Hogan, and sounds like we tried to sign others at the beginning of the window as LJ said something like 'it was clear early on that strikers we wanted were not available.' One of these could well have been Assombalonga who we were rumoured to be after. So we were after strikers so Lansdown was not stopping us from signing one.
