Recommended Posts

Anyone heard if they're going to make this 5 subs thing permanent, or is it just til the end of the season?

Looks like we've both been let off a bit in this game. That Roberts one is one of those that could have been red.

Can we have another 3 months break after this trauma?

This has only stayed at 3 because Swansea were happy to chill and take the points. We haven't layed a single glove on them.

It's because of the quick restart and to protect the players. So I would say it's temporary.

Do people still think we're not going down then?

Woodgate had shown how clueless he was before the pandemic hit. Why on Earth would he be any better afterwards?

I was surprised it wasn’t. Mind you, if the first half was a yellow, so was that

We’re really going down aren’t we? I’ve thought so since about October but it’s getting all too realistic now. We'll be stuck in league 1 for years having to look at players every week like friend, shotton, Clayton, Fry, McNair, Saville, Nmecha, Gestede, howson etc.

The hope is that there are three teams worse. There’s about 5 teams that deserve to go down

The only thing that will save us is Hull/Charlton being even worse than us

Yeah, and we're one of them. We were always one of them. Why are people surprised?

Nah, we are down unless Woodgate gets replaced.

Warnock is the man to keep us up.

Probably the worst performance of the season, which is saying something.

Forget formations etc, we never change the way we play and that comes from one man!

    • I still don't get.  Lots of people are successful relative to their starting point in life but not everyone wants to be because some people don't have ambition at all.  So the fact that some people aren't trying shouldn't preclude other people from trying, and the same goes for football clubs as well.  If that's what you are suggesting that is?   Ambition and planning aren't one and the same.  You can have ambition but plan poorly and not achieve your aims.  You can make a great plan for one thing but not have one for another and it ends in failure, and it doesn't matter what success you've had in the past. The Golden Thread thing isn't the only plan we seem to have formed over the last few years but none of them last because ultimately they are all at the whim of one person, and that person does whatever he likes in the end.  So for example, he interferes in transfers and buys a player that he wants.  That isn't part of the plan, and it actually screws with the plan that is in place, but it's still ambitious.  Another example would be Gibson making it clear following relegation that our aim was to go straight back up.  That was his aim or ambition.  He appointed a new manager, sanctioned heavy spending, and then a few months later changed the manager, and suddenly the spending was a mistake, and had to be 'put right', at least according to the new manager.  I don't recall if Gibson had anything to say for himself at the time though? As I said, I don't see what anyone's personal circumstances have to do with a haphazard approach to running a football club? But that last bit in bold there, shouldn't be a given, that's my ultimate point, and fans accepting it is a big part of the problem in my opinion.
    • Warnock clearly rates Tav, he has also brought in Kebano, Bolasie, Watmore and NML.  I know we have had a few hoof ball games of late but I struggle to see how those five players skill sets fit the big Striker to hoof it up to mantra. Without doubt Warnock likes a big Striker but he's not the only Manager to have that preference and his sides have also had other players like Hoilett and NML as recent examples from Cardiff that are more than just the footballing equivalent of Neanderthals. 
    • (H) Barnsley v Birmingham (H) Brentford v Rotherham (A) Bristol City v QPR (H) Coventry v Derby (D) Millwall v Blackburn (H) Norwich v Luton (H) Preston v Bournemouth (D) Reading v Sheffield Wed (H) Stoke v Wycombe (A) Swansea v Middlesbrough
    • This to me feels very much like the Mowbray era of the type of job he asked to do, get rid of the big wages in players like  Britt for example bring in players who can do the same or better job for less and get competent coaching staff in who know what they are doing. I think personally Gibson trying to replicate the way he got promotion last time by getting someone in to balance the books and then have one big push towards promotion with the next manager.    If i am right, will that work? time will tell. 
    • Yeah,it still goes on,massive money changing hands there, Best of luck trying to drive past one on a narrow road,its like they own the rd & you have no business on it whatsoever, I tried it once and i threw it over a ditch!! Harder than it looks to follow to contours & falls on the rd.
