Warnock comes on here and reads the comments. Clearly he is very astute and so will have learned a few things from our observations and opinions and will react accordingly. 😁
The danger is if he makes too many change and upsets the balance of what he has achieved so far another defeat may start another run, but one which we would rather we didn't.
In the old days a Chopper Harris or a Norman "bites yer legs" Hunter would sort the likes of Grealish out. Nowadays Football matches resemble pantomimes more than a Football match.
I'm not advocating thuggery on the pitch but after a pathetic simulation like that you could guarantee a cynical, scything tackle incoming very soon, leaving him rolling around with something to cry about. It soon sorted out the men from the boys and Referees seemed to be less protective in those days and wanted to get on with it.
With all the camera angles backed up by VAR, robust challenges are penalised nowadays which is fair enough as we want to watch football not martial arts but as Old Codger says there should be punishment for that type of behaviour from Grealish. Infringements, be they offside's or cynical tackles are now immediately reviewed and punished, simulation should be dealt with just as swiftly. A sending off would be a just and effective deterrent.
I get the impression the Gazette think there will be changes for this game.
Definitely Morsy, Akpom and Watmore. Suspect Wood will be in too. I'd not be surprised if Spence plays right back with Folarin in front of him.
I think you will find that Marvin is our top scorer, plus he doesn't take Penalties and has had less minutes on the pitch. His Stats below look a lot better too. Not bad for a makeshift Left Back come Winger.
