Right about what? That we won't be going up this season? Well done Nostradamus, a whole 0 people contradicted you on that one, go and lord your prediction nous over them.

You seem to post that we'll be in a relegation fight every year, yet we haven't  been in one since the second season up.

All you ever do is bitch and moan. 

You disappear when we win a couple of games.

And I'd say the people rewriting history to pretend that because we were bad and well beaten tonight that we have not, at ANY point in the last 5 and a half seasons controlled a game at any point, or the ones who are lying about the position a player has been sent out in because they don't understand what the concept of tracking back is.

 

I stopped reading when you posted something that was completely incorrect 

I don't think we have ever been in danger of getting relegated since the second season in this league

My point is that we are absolutely nowhere near good enough to be thinking about the Prem.

Is it acceptable, you ask? Well, not to most supporters but then it's not our call. 

It appears to be acceptable to the owner judging by the way are being run.

Nothing wrong with being a mid table Championship club - I just wish the powers that be would stop kidding themselves and us.

Not being funny/having a go at you, but does anyone really still believe a word that Ashton or lansdown tell us?!

I was responding to all the "here come the bedwetters" posts that come after we were DIRE.

And criticising a bad performance doesn't make you a betwetter.

Thinking we are now relegated because we lost to the best team in the division does.

If you look, there's a difference, so if your posts are closer to the first than the second then you don't need to give a shit about the posts rightly calling out the morons who make the ones in the second category.

If your posts are more like the ones who are actively pretending we have never played well in the last 5 and a half seasons,then you need to give your head a wobble.

I would imagine this is not a million miles away from what a lot of the players and staff will have been thinking, going in to this game.

That's why we are where we are, no winners I'm afraid.

Literally nobody has said that.

What has been said is that a shot performance and being well beaten by the top of the league doesn't mean we are now relegated.

It doesn't erase every positive performance in the clubs history.

 

We were bad tonight and no one has argued against that.

What people who are capable of perspective have said is "this was bad, but the world isn't ending" while the others who aren't are looking around for cyanide pills.

Whilst I would not put myself in bed wetting territory, you,ve got to look at our performances since Barnsley. There aren’t many positives to be had, and I would suggest that the performance trend in that of a relegation team. Our only saviour is the start we had which put points in the bag. I can’t see a game where we could guarantee 3 points right now, and I’d describe myself as optimistic.

Irrespective of our position in the league we are the most boring, unimaginative, toothless team in the division, I saw more spirited displays than I've witnessed in the past 3 years when we were bottom of the 4th division but never mind we've got the midfield power houses of Patterson and O'Dowda coming back soon

I mean we can agree we played well enough against a leading league 1 side and Preston finally. Didnt expect to win tonight but yeah we did look a bit disjointed again but it goes back to players available and the injury crisis.

I think our problems run a bit more deeper and wider than that KW

Theres some dark clouds (Contracts etc) and big decisions looming

Point taken

Holden did look a bit like a bloke who had just won a competition to be coach for the day.

I've no idea how he was trying to play, no idea about the subs he used, it all looked a bit random to me.

Relegation? No, progress, I'm beginning to seriously wonder.

I wouldn't say there's ever been a point since promotion where you could look at fixtures and point to a guaranteed 3 points, barring games in exceptional circumstances, like when Bolton were in the financial mire, that's the nature of this division,  regardless of our form.

Sometimes you just got to say that across the whole park they were man for man better than us ? 
That’s why we were out played, and again Bents only really bright spark...saved us from a bigger defeat. Did  Krul even have a shot to stop of any note ?

They were good to watch...chasing shadows.

 

Sad when you respond to your own post 😀 but I would add it still really irks me when square pegs are put in round holes... I think most of us recognise that KP for  example would effective behind the forwards... not stuck out wide... playing central defender in the middle (Zak) and so on...  no wonder they looked so fluid and us clumsy.  Oh well.

I still cannot fathom why Dean decides (when we are behind) to ensure all 4 strikers are on the pitch and therefore pushing our 2 most threatening/likely players out wide. Tonight for example we had zero creativity (3 shots all game and none on target) but yet he decides to take off our only creative centre midfielder (Palmer) and replace him for one player who he would probably provide service for in Wells. 

Losing the faith v quickly, don’t mind losing if we are giving it a go or generally playing good football but we are doing neither and I’m still baffled by Deans tactics/favoured formation

The more I see Rowe’s actions for that second goal the more I think what a complete & utter gutless lightweight he must be. There are times when you can take a gamble for a cheap free kick & others when you just can’t take that risk. No doubt Deano will blame the ref rather than dealing with the true root cause.

I was thinking why doesn't he either lay down properly holding his head or get up. Yes it's dirty tactics to con ref into stopping game, but either do it properly or not at all!

As for Max Aarons, how much room do we want to give him. So much time and space. Will never have an easier game.

That was complete and utter dog turd. Dont care who we are playing that type of performance is embarrassing at best. How they have the cheek to expect fans to pay to watch shite like that? You must be mad.

We are in the same league as them? Jesus christ. 

And with the announcements of losses again today. Its all to familiar and depressing. Blowing money on players that are just not good enough, while skrimping on the guy in charge that never knows what the hell he is doing.

I already told you why in the first post that I responded to you with, the one you haven't quoted.

 

Its a vastly different situation. 

 I'm not convinced that 'vastly different' is valid. Unless you are saying it is not possible for us to lose a leading goal scorer through injury or something else.

Hull's GD at week 22/24 was about +4. Ours is -1. So our position is not bomb proof and we need significant improvements all over the park very quickly or we could face an uncomfortable end of season.

Anger? More like ignorance regarding anything to do with football. But they can get away with it on here because it feeds the negativity that is OTIB. 

Dissapointing result but no surprise really, with the bias towards these yo yo Prem outfits.

We are a very well run outfit, be thankful we are not like the most of the club's that are basket cases. 

However my main concern us the seemingly lack of desire with the players, that is down to one man really, and he has to improve...quickly. 

Players on easy street, sort it out Dean?

Going to stop watching this rubbish week in and week out, times as they are, we need something to lift and cheer us, and this ain’t it. After watching end up being depressed and it ruins the rest of my evening, yet again! Can Lansdown really be happy with standard of play, I’ve said before, blessing in disguise for Holden that there are no fans watching this.

Would you not accept that our form since Barnsley has been that of a team closer to relegation than top 6. Another game with ZERO shots on goal and a 20+ goal a season man playing on the wing. We’ll stay up because of our start and because Wycombe means that realistically there are only 2 relegation places to play for. We are just not an enjoyable watch anymore, even for a die hard like me.

I understand all the frustration tonight but it doesn’t mean we are relegation bound. That’s just anger taking over.

Agreed. We have too many points to go down but next season with Holden in charge and the squad we have less Fam and who knows maybe Walsh is another matter.

Norwich will win the league this year, and have players that are top flight quality. I can think of at least 5, possibly more. Farke is a very good manager. Disappointing performance but if we were offered 3 points from Preston and Norwich...

Onto the cup weekend. COYR.

So we could play on for another 9 x 90mins and still not be expected to score a whole goal. Bleak

That is one way of looking at it yes. All of our "efforts" amounted to a 9% chance of scoring 1 goal. This is only one source of xG though, some others may be a little more generous (although form 3 shots off target no xG algorithm is going to give us much).

Norwich had xG of about 1.6 today, which is a pretty standard figure for a team hitting 14 shots, 6 of which were on target.
