  1. If this is aimed at me as it follows on from my post, then can I just say that I am a huge fan of Wilder and really impressed at what he has achieved in such a short time. However if we are not allowed to question what we see and the possible reasons behind it what is the point of this forum?
  2. Good post RR, my current thoughts exactly. I watched the style of play develop through the Bournemouth, Forest games and thought this is more like it, sustainable tactics that can take the team forward, but since then we have hit a brick wall. Other teams have countered our tactics, but that is to be expected, but even so that shouldn’t mean we just throw the tactic book away and resort to hoof ball and scrapping it out. I guess the question is have we reverted to Warnock style as a pre determined plan or are our players just not capable of adapting to Wilders new style
  3. Wow a battling three points against a very good Coventry side who will be disappointed to be travelling back to the Midlands-with nothing. I know Sporar scored but that was his total input, if people are happy with that fine. I thought Payero did well and Bologan, certainly an upgrade on Connelly who I am having serious doubts over. MOM for me Joe Lumley who had a very good game in difficult conditions, also Tav worked his little socks off. Onwards and upwards UTB
  4. Very even game but Coventry look more comfortable on the ball than we do, we just lack someone to hold onto the ball in midfield and dictate play. Connelly and Sporar as a partnership just don’t work they are just too easily dominated by the defenders. I know he has a nice song but can someone tell me with Sporar what we are getting for our£1.5 million quid a year, he can’t hold up play, runs into nowhere positions and never seems to be where the ball is when it gets near the box. Cannot see Wilder putting up with this for very long in the second halg
  5. Mogga did a job on us last night, he moved his midfield up to man mark our three and set his two forwards to harry and get in the face of our back three so we had no time on the ball and no one to pass to. It worked a treat and we had no answer to it so expect every team now to do the same. We need midfielders who can find space, turn and bring in other players and let’s be honest we don’t have them, so it’s an interesting coaching challenge for Wilder. Having said all of that, we should have had a penalty, Crooks should have scored with at least one of those headers and Connolly and Jones sho
  6. Right far too much negativity on here tonight, so am going to end on a positive and go to bed. Belagun looks a proper player
  7. Does anyone else thinks Khydra looks like Mickey Flanagans love child 😆
  8. We have definitely gone up a gear, pushed the midfield further up and are starting to ask questions of Blackburn.
  9. Urgent request anybody found a midfield in red shirts, ours appears to have gone missing
  10. You wouldn’t want him AR, think of all that constant yapping
  11. Funny I was thinking along those lines Borodane. MM appoints this company as administrators and they use the same diversionary tactics and disinformation as MM did, hmmmhh strange!
  12. Just this, forget about buying players concentrate on paying your tax bill, as don’t forget that money is owed to the British public and would pay for hundreds of new nurses, (or six NHS diversity managers 😆).
  13. When our players get (often deserved) criticism I take a deep breath and remember that they have been coached in three different styles in three seasons by managers who I would not let anywhere near one of my junior teams. Under the Wilder regime there is a pattern and a purpose and players like Tav will benefit and should improve with consistent approach. Please bear with them and don’t sell them you most likely will see much better players evolving this season and next. Thank God for Wilder
  14. You gotta laugh, that means Forest now can’t afford Spence in the summer, on that performance he is heading to the Prem, would still rather have Jonesy though
  15. Just pleased we avoided Kidderminster, too many split loyalties to be comfortable with that draw
  16. I am trying not to be too critical of individual players given all the changes, covid, pitch etc, but Lumley had a shocker today and none of the aforementioned really apply to a keeper making such basic errors
  17. Any cup tie against lower opposition on their home turf is going to be a battle, we won lets just move on. Well played Mansfield, you deserved the draw, its a cruel game at times.
  18. Well that was fun, proper old fashioned cup football. For a team thrown together we have done really well even though at times it is clear that some of the players are not sure where they should be on the pitch. Roll on the second half
  19. Whilst it is normal to question team selection, those chosen and left out, these are not normal times. We have no idea who has/had covid and their levels of fitness, so I guess we just go with what is there and trust the management team. How you set tactics with such a cobbled together bunch must be a nightmare, as someone said previously, it ain’t going to be pretty.
  20. Crazy L just got one foot in the ITK Hall of Fame with that one 👏 👏
  21. On another note, a friend tells me Brighton are monitoring Isaiah Jones very closely with a view to a bid in the summer, they expect their competition to be Leeds
  22. He comes from Galway, they all look like that, and are basically mad 😂
  23. I think I must be living in an alternative universe 8 million, 15 million for Tavernier, have I missed something?
  24. They say regular sex improves your memory, so as we enter 2019, I would like to wish all my fellow Smoggies a happy new year
