To be fair, two of these recent games (writing this one off as a loss) are against teams who profit from an utterly broken financial aid system.

Until that Cancer is removed from the league, we struggle and paper and in the literal sense to compete.

Same for us, Preston, Millwall, etc.

Ta least half of this league have had the equivalent of £60m+ for free in the past 11 years.

I don't think belief is the problem, the issue is that for all the effort we can try and leave on the pitch, we're a small squad with zero technical ability with some wasters still on the books.

 

Hmm. But parachute side or no parachute side, we've played better than today. Even at home!!!

We KNOW these players can and have done better. That's where the question about self-confidence comes in.

Forfeiting the game would mean a 0-3 loss.

But that's probably better than what we will end up with if our performance doesn't drastically improve in the second half.

Il take 3-0. We’ve conceded 4 up there last 4 visits to the Hawthorns I believe

Not disagreeing but what chances did Weimann create. Offside goal? Cross into keepers arms or cross out of Martin's reach? Can't remember a chance he created but I might be wrong.

Well, compared to WBA's ones they were half chances (Andi's cross before their first goal and after it a strong pass that almost found two players inside the box). Not much, but with the minimum assistance they got...

Look no further than our almost non existent Board and our owner who has consistently failed over two decades to deliver on promises.

PS What is the point of a High Performance Centre with no high performance players.  What is wrong with Weston beach!

They already have donkeys.

Martin would not be able to out pace the donkeys!

I hope there is a real blow-up at h-t.  A few home truths needed.

Bents very poor for their second goal.

Why is White asking Trego how City sort this out second half.  Trego in fairness is coming across okay, but I hate White's comms.  Toby much better.  Sorry, rather deflect how bad City have been to talk about Robinstv.

White is asking Trego the exact same questions that he'd ask Tinnion or Joe Williams. Which is ridiculous. Tregs is a fan, he's not a player or a coach.

It's pretty lame I agree. Just an all-round shockingly bad hour in the Club's history.

So its laughable as a City fan to hope that we can be competitive in matches this season huh? Nobody is asking that we win the league but I for one would like us to at least give teams a game and also if not too much to ask, win a home game. Does that seem unreasonable??

Well if that's really what you want, what have you been watching? Because we've given everyone a game, bar Bournemouth and WBA. We've been competitive in every game, bar Bournemouth and WBA.

Both those teams were in the Premier League last season and everyone's perfectly aware of the gulf these days between that division and this one. Meanwhile, on form we're lucky not to be a Third Division team by now and the manager has been given precious little resources to change that around.

So what do we realistically expect, either today or in the short term? 

It was always going to be a horrible struggle this season, never mind today against a superior opponent at a ground we do badly at.

Last 4 league visits.

We had a couple of better results there in the cup between a few of those (better here meaning anything from losing by less goals, to drawing the game)

The one thing we have to do, and I keep saying it, is a buy a leader in the window and never have a Goalkeeper captaining the team ever again. How the make up of the squad ended up there just about sums up the leadership (I'm talking above the Manager now) at this club. It's ******* clueless and lacking in ANY football knowledge whatsoever. An Owner who got dazzled by talk of "Clubs in the Bag" and put his 100% faith in Swiss Tony  telling everyone who would listen that the fans got it wrong has literally got us here. It's an uncomfortable truth but it is the truth. We have to take the pain and let Nige sort it out.

I really wanted this to work, but he’s taking us down.  Is Tanner injured, if not didn’t he learn anything from Tuesday night?  No problem with Pearson as a person but he has the worst record of any City manager in history, and it’s getting worse.  I admire those of you who are keeping the faith, I really do, but if we’re heading downwards then something has to be done.  Anyone got any better ideas?

A three year rebuild . Did you think it would be a constant upward trajectory for those three years. The players ain’t good enough , it’s a thankless task & a massive job. We’ve all said we just need to stay up this season . That’s the be all & end all.
you’re a typical , if things ain’t right sack everyone. You’re a clown

You literally have no idea how football works do you.  It’s ok, it’s rhetorical. 

How does it work Len? Do share your infinite wisdom on this subject, you’ll. be be doing us all a massive favour.  Do we turn up every week to watch our team lose an d put in yet another shocking performance?  I knew I was missing something.  That’s alright then, let’s keep backing Pearson because he’s clearly the man who can deliver on what football is all about, week in, week out.

Correct, Dave. That first half was embarrassing. Reminded me of Watford away last season. We’re lucky it’s not 5-0. They are better than us but through organisation, mindset and some clarity of thought, we could be doing a lot better.

Genuine question. If those signings/players are so bad, how did we generally do ok? COYR 

Doing ok isn't good enough we have a centre half that cost us 8 million Palmer that is a waste of space and the list goes on, We had one good season after that it's been free falling.. Unless we get fresh faces the attitude and quality we produce on a matchday won't improve..

This isn’t aimed at you but i have thought it since day one. Probably should start a thread of it’s own. Why do people believe Pearson is the man for us? I am not having a dig just genuinely interested.
