I swear to God, some of you guys love to swim around in all the agony.  Some of you even swim around on your backs, using a straw to take small sips from the Lake of Agony, then guggeling the nice war

As long as we give him the best boots. 

I for one hope Warnock stays next season. Majority of people were happy/expected mid table when he took over. Now we are there and achieving that, you all want him out?  This squad isn’t very good,

We just don't play football like other teas.  Bristol, Brentford were something else. High pressing, good shape.  They seemed to know where their team mates were etc.  We just head the ball all over, smash it forward.  Then against reading we knocked about it nicely.  Why?  Just why?

We actually have Britt and Akpom as striking options now for (likely) the season. Drooling at the thought. 

Think if Fletcher's out for the season that might be us done, to be honest. Fletcher isn't a world-beater but he changes how effective we are going forward in this team with how we play.

Akpom has been on the pitch for significantly longer than Fletcher has in this game and has done absolutely nothing. He had that skied shot but I'm not sure if he's even taken another kick, barely seen him on the pitch.

Bola off for Johnson, definitely protecting players now.

14 touches, 9 passes, 5 accurate. In 58 mins.

If we don't have a chance with Fletcher injured, we never had a chance.

Fletcher was rubbish against Huddersfield, his one highlight was heading the ball to Watmore, but Watmore's goal was 99% a solo effort.

He played well against Reading, but I'm not having one good performance meaning that he was our season decider.

    • =6th on goals scored. Missed a week too! Somehow find myself just above the relegation zone!!    not going my way this season!!
    • I actually think he’s improved significantly since he was dropped for that one game a while back. 
    • It’s not necessarily criticism (the way I see him), it’s more frustration. He has everything to be one of the best players in the league. He just needs to improve his end product. Personally think he should be getting double figures for goals and assists every season with relative ease with the ability he has. It’s great that he’s a threat and getting in shooting positions, but unless he actually improves his end product it’s not really helping the team. Just think he could really reach that next level with a bit of composure. Saying that, if he did improve his composure, he’d be a premier league player - quite easily.
    • No not quite I’m more the posh south Dublin accent 😃 but agreed, definitely wouldn’t say it to her face 😂
    • I think for like the final 35 minutes of the first half we were really good. Second half we tailed off a little bit, especially after we changed shape again and went back to the 3 at the back. Was speaking to a Barnsley fan on reddit about this and apparently this is a huge problem for them. Their manager refuses to adapt or make any changes to a style that clearly isn't working, they create barely anything and leak goals due to their high line. Because he spent like 70%+ at RB, where he was actually pretty good. Think he struggled during his time in CM, yet again. Whether it's at RB he can see the whole game in front of him or what but he definitely looked far more comfortable there.  Wait, really? For me, Crooks was far and away the best player on the pitch! He was absolutely top notch last night I thought.
