Cardiff v Boro 1-1 (Saville)

Recommended Posts

Far to many draws but it’s another point. Honestly  I think I’d prefer have my eyes tattooed then having to watch us play..

if only we had got the players NW wanted up front I’m sure we could be up nearer 6th.

Good point, not the most entertaining game again but we are looking pretty solid at the back this season. 

I think if Warnock could have got 2 good full backs and another creative player in the summer we might have been pushing for the top 2 this season.

I wouldn’t push it that far but in the top ten

A win against Coventry and 8pts out of possible 12 is absolutely fantastic start.

Like to see Akpom, Britt and Roberts start against Coventry and see if we can get some further confidence by scoring goals and creating further chances.

One thing I worried about is playing teams who are direct, but I thought the whole team stood up to be counted and we dealt with the aerial duels and second balls.

We've been playing a lot of the better teams in this league lately. Games should start getting better when we get some of the weaker ones.

Then we have to hope Gibson lets NW do some wheeling and dealing in January.

I agree we do need to improve, but considering the players we have and the teams we've played, I reckon we've done pretty well.

It really is painful to watch.

I’m not sure our approach would have been any different had we got Bolasie and co. We still would have lined up as we did and, like Roberts, Bolasie would have been sat on the bench for 90 mins.

Would have taken a point before the game, so a 1-1 here is a good point on the board. Can't help but feel it was an opportunity missed as in-game I don't think Cardiff were all that good.

To be fair he has a small squad we play 3 games a week. He needs to rotate and rest players. Roberts be starting Vs Coventry

It's interesting how we play Vs Coventry I hope we attack them and score more than 1 goal like.

True - be interesting to us against some teams we're expected to beat.

Yeah at home against teams like Coventry I would like to see us score goals with playing 2 strikers with the likes of Tav, Wing and Roberts.

If we'd turned two of our draws into wins we'd be second. I think we are still a few players away from competing at the top end though. 

I know its not great to watch but the league looks wide open at the moment.

    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
    • Classic Dani 🤦‍♂️
    • My comment about the £20K a week contracts was in response to Grimsby Boro's revelation that over 150 championship players are to be out of contract in the summer meaning that those players whose contracts are ending will be highly unlikely to find new suitors willing to meet let alone exceed their existing deals. The implication being that Boro and other cash struck clubs could pick up  players this summer at a lot lower cost than they are presently being paid or indeed may be offered elsewhere if they are presently at Boro. Nobody likes to see anyone down on their uppers. Whether you earn £200 a week or £20,000 we all live, budget and mortgage within our means. For me personally it has been heart breaking to see the Maserati, Lambo and prancing horse all repossessed along with the 70 foot Yacht anchored in Monaco. The penthouse in Vegas is also going for a song if anyone has the odd £2.5M spare before the bailiffs move in. At this rate I'll end up in a four bed detached in Ingleby with a Mondeo on the drive. As I type the wife's red soled shoes are up on ebay and the girlfriend's Rolex is on Gumtree. I just hope the mistress can hack the Travelodge instead of the Grosvenor.
