After that performance, I think that Wood will be the next player to snapped up for sponsorship

Be harsh to drop Wood after that performance.

If he is dropped will it be called the Woodgate scandal?

Above the magic 2pts a game in that timeframe as well.

Fast becoming a very capable team well done to all concerned.

Very pleased for Marvin hopefully that will get a few off his back

Played 9, conceded 5 goals, the same as the much vaunted Watford Premiership defence. After last seasons abysmal showing then step forward Neil Warnock and his coaches, what a turnaround, take a bow, you have given us back our sense of pride

So during the last international break i did a best case scenario of what we could get from.next 7 games taking us to next international break:

My predictions were

Reading @ home: Win (had this odd feeling we would turn them over)
Bristol @ away: Loss
Cardiff @ away: Draw
Coventry @ home: Win
Forest @ home: Draw
Blackburn @ away: Draw
Brentford @ away: Loss

Total: 9pts out 22pts

We currently have 11pts from 15pts

Great return so far and if u offered me 2 draws from next 2 games I would take it. But I would have taken a draw today and we got a win so f**k what i would take 😊. Buzzing.

A good day, another win. Happy, happy, happy. Bad day, lock down for 4 weeks... I don’t think I can take 4 weeks locked up with the wife I really don’t. Mind she said worse about me. 
Could be a skin full tomorrow and I’m not one who drinks much, if anything at all but I know it upsets the wife, so I put up with it, the drink not the wife. 

Oh lord another 4 weeks the business is delayed from opening and we get no assistance what so ever. I’ll probably get some doddles done though.... just need a moose and  a spray can.... or was it a mouse. I’ll get both just in case and I can eat them if food runs out...

I'm absolutely delighted with the win. Warnock has worked absolute wonders here. It's staggering to think that this well drilled team is largely the same group of players that Woodgate had underperforming. Dijksteel, Wood, McNair, Bola, Howson, Saville, Tavernier, Coulson, Assombalonga, Spence and Johnson were all here under Woodgate. The only new players are Bettinelli, Morsy & Akpom. The improvements are largely a result of Warnock's tactics and man management. It reinforces what an absolute waste of time Woodgate's inept spell here was. We need to do everything we can to support Warnock in the January transfer window to strengthen the squad as he knows exactly how to get us promoted. If we give him the resources, he'll get us promoted.

Good work by everyone but I agree this was exceptional. 
Sets a high bar but I think the competition should be regular or maybe monthly?

    • What a great result and I loved the lineup! Amazing how we didn’t crumble and let in loads of goals with Roberts in the team. Hopefully he gets more involvement going forward.    nice to see Spence and Johnson doing well and getting some credit too as that hasn’t happened much so far this season. Bringing them on when we are ahead may be a useful tactic given they will be more likely to have space to run into which suits them.    I know Watmore was a bit rusty as we’d expect but I think if he stays fit he could be a real bonus for us this season. 
    • Interesting question really, to which there is no easy answer. I guess it’s probably one of the essential questions of football strategy. Perhaps one of the reasons behind our excellent defensive record (so far) is that we do press, thus containing the opposition in their own half. Although playing the ball around in midfield might open up more options, it does give the other team more time to organise their defence. There is a lot to be said for counter-attacking football – basically the element of surprise – but it is risky because you are playing too much in your own half and over-relying on your defenders. I’m not a great fan of that, however good they are. To be honest, I’m quite happy with the way things are at present. Effectively we scored twice tonight (I don’t count own goals) and we were pretty clinical, which is a welcome change.  
    • Second the counter attacking style, fortunes have changed once I tried to use a high press as opposed to dominating the game with possession on Football Manager 21 haha!
    • I'd agree, with the squad available to us I don't think a full team high press quite works for us. I think sitting deeper, not pressing  as high up and letting the opposition push forwards to open up space behind their defence suits us best, with team in it's current form. Combine this with situational high presses like the first part I mentioned and as you say an emphasis on making the most from set pieces too could well be a real good tactic for us. I do think we have these basics in place already, but as you say a bit more adventure in certain areas could make all these little parts a really effective whole.
    • I'm not a massive fan of the second way and it is the way we've set up more often than not this season. But even with that general tactic I feel like there's better ways of exploiting it and we actually managed it in parts tonight - to me the key is set pieces. It we get the ball up early, do our high press then give the ball asap to Roberts, spence and tav in particular then they will draw fouls and corners. We just need to then be better at capitalising on these opportunities when we get them. It's not pretty but I do think with a couple of tweeks, the major one being more adventurous wing play, we can score a lot more goals in this system than we are.
