  1. And, y'know... look at Wigan. Look at Bury. It'd be like sucking the poison out only to be thrown into a vat of acid.
  2. Even I've all but given up hope of survival at this point, mate, there's little positive left to talk about.
  3. I worry two things: 1. There isn't enough desire from fans to take him to task, Monk, Pulis, Woodgate and now Warnock will be in the firing line as our managers inevitably end up taking the brunt of the blame and fans just aren't seeing the bigger picture. 2. The media support in doing so is benign, national media doesn't care and local media are beholden to him. Gibson took us to highs unfathomable but his old-fashioned philosophies are dragging us back down to some of the lowest lows we've had since he took over.
  4. The way Gibson systematically removed every connection to our successful rise under Karanka has to be questioned. I just can't see it as if he viewed Victor Orta the person as the problem any more, it's like he viewed Orta's position, his role within football as the problem. Anything that took control away from him. And yet here we are 3 years on from that decision, finishing lower and lower and heading into League One. He's got it wrong and he needs to realise that or we're never getting out of this shithole.
  5. If we do go down, the club has to be taken to town for it. Absolutely has to be. We were in the Premier League 3 years ago. Now we're looking more and more likely to be in League One. Owner has to own up and accept responsibility because since Karanka left in the Prem to Warnock now, across those 6 managers is one constant and it's the way this club has been run throughout. The way we spend, the way we recruit, the way we view managers, the way we want to direct the football at this club is pathetic and right now we're getting our just desserts.
  6. Yep, that's done it for me, I can't see how we survive watching this shower of *** in the last couple of games.
  7. To be fair to him, he's worked hard and had *** all from behind him all day. I wouldn't advocate a dive at any point but I can kind of understand why he's done it when he's getting nowt out of anyone else.
  8. I don't think he's really looked that tired, though. I get that they want to be careful but I'm not sure based on what we've seen whether he's struggling too much. We're dying for a goal and we still have Moukoudi on doing absolutely nothing.
  9. Absolutely no movement in the box with 2 decent corners. FFS.
  10. oh ffs what a chance
  11. If I'm to give anyone credit today, it's probably Britt. He's tried hard but the quality behind him is dreadful. That point where he's in the corner there and battled to keep the ball, turns and then there's nothing going on around him.
  12. Eze off now, get Howson back into midfield.
  13. Paddy McNair thinks he's playing NFL again.
  14. Could do with Wing finding his shooting boots again today.
  15. Also the amount of times Stojanovic has tried to give us the edge as soon as he takes the ball back and the rest of the team just stops when he gets hold of it. Like phew, thank God the keeper has got it... get your bloody head up and try to catch them out!
  16. I know they're going on about Moukoudi a lot but I'm not sure he's playing as the deep lying midfielder so much as he's just there to try and stop the threat of Eze. If that's the case, I can see why you wouldn't choose to use Clayton who isn't gonna keep up with Eze for pace. It's a tough one but gonna have to go for it a bit and maybe lose that man marker.
  17. It was just daft from Saville too, 2 daft yellow cards.
  18. He seems to be on the pitch just to take set-pieces at this point.
  19. Watching this half of football is finally starting to put that reality into my head a lot more than it was. The selection decisions haven't really come off at all, Morrison has been tidy but not creative, Moukoudi isn't offering anything as a midfielder, Fletch is struggling to get into it. Coulson for Johnson, maybe try Dijksteel for Moukoudi and get Howson back in midfield.
  20. Where on earth is Stojanovic going there? Why is he off his line?
  21. If it was a choice between Warnock and Johnson, I'd probably pick Johnson. I'm not greatly happy with the prospect of either, tbh.
  22. Yeah, I was clutching at straws for him to be back I think, it looked like he pulled his hamstring based on my limited knowledge of sporting injuries.
  23. Dijksteel back on the bench, too. Makes sense as we otherwise have no real right-back.
  24. That's what I was wondering above, yeah.
  25. I guess Moukoudi could be sitting in the midfield, didn't Warnock used to have Sol Bamba do that on occasion?
