  1. Absolutely right, we have needed a leader with some steel at the back for a long time and Lenihan gives us that in spadefuls. Giles is a very good player and will bring balance to the team, please let this be happening
  2. Don’t like that at all, such a letdown after all the hype 😞
  3. An interesting discussion with an insider from WBA regarding Gykores. He understands they registered an interest and were basically told it was £12 million upfront or £10 million with add ons which made them gulp a bit. Seems an awful lot for a player with one good half season in the Championship, or are Coventry just pricing him out of the market
  4. Thinking back I am having great difficulty in remembering Sporar actually jumping at all, he was very good at pointing to where he wanted the ball though, world class in fact
  5. Whoever we bring in they must have the mental strength and”will to win” to play in the Championship. Too many times this season I have seen us panic and fold when games got tough, we need a couple of leaders to dig in and take back the initiative and I don’t mean just kick the opposition like Crooks tends to do
  6. What a strange half, we couldn’t get close to the ball for 20 minutes and then Crooks scores and we wake up. The second gave us real confidence and we dominated them after that. A mention for Daniels who has brought so much more confidence into our defence, Mcgree also looks a very good signing
  7. We just seem to have run out of energy since the Chelsea game, almost as if we are running up an ever increasing incline, perhaps too many games in too short a time has taken it’s toll
  8. The good news is we are one up and that’s about it, no urgency, no pressing and just no attempt to move the ball faster. This must do Wilders head in I know it does min
  9. We are just so easy to defend against, it’s always the easy option taken. Just push up and put some pressure on their back line, you can see how this is going already
  10. Can we use this post as the definitive full stop for this discussion as it really sums it up very succinctly
  11. I don’t know if Chris Wilder employs a Public Relations manager or not, if he does sack him, if he doesn’t then get one, appallingly handled
  12. Can’t watch this anymore it is just painful. Can we open the summer transfer thread please as most of this team needs to be rebuilt
  13. Same old same old, we are clueless going forward and always susceptible to defensive errors. Sporar reminds of that kid at school who stood on their goal line all match for a tap in and never got his shorts dirty
  14. Win or lose I cannot blame the team selection as that is exactly what I would have gone with. Three points today or I fear it may be over for us
  15. Well that was a totally forgettable game but a hard earned point none the less. Do you remember the days when losing Crooks for three games would have mattered? I have stayed on the fence over Connolly but now I just cannot see what his strength are and what he offers as a footballer
  16. You had me at “how little our forwards are” oh for some physical presence up front to hold the ball up
  17. With Lumley not playing I now quite miss those buttock clenching moments when the ball went towards our goal, it at least livened things up and had a certain comedic value
  18. Go back to sleep this is not a great advert for the top of the Championship
  19. This is a joke I can’t work out who is who it’s like watching a kids game in the park
  20. Watch the first half again Peltier and Taylor are not as far forward and get into their defensive back five much faster than if we had “proper” wing backs playing
  21. Different feel to this game now, we are going for it. Dijksteel has been very good tonight
  22. There is no doubt that Wilder playing Taylor and Peltier at the back has tightened the game up for us, but it is at the expense of giving us anything going forward. I wonder if he will change it or settle for the point
  23. Still trying to think of some of his strengths, hadn’t considered old fashioned, well done Grimsby 😂
  24. I am trying to think of Sporars strengths as a forward…………no still thinking give me more time
