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.

    • The best way I can think of Tav is if he was as good at shooting as he thinks he must be then he would be a 20 goal a season midfielder. I wouldn't take him out of this team at all, he's far too good for us and this team, he contributes plenty more than just a daft shot here and there throughout a game. Decision making is the one thing, the only thing in my mind that holds him back from being ready for the top level.
    • I think Tav is what he is, a skilled footballer with good ball control but lacking a footballing brain which has held him back from making the next grade. He is useful and can beat defenders but you never get off your seat watching him and when he lines up to shoot nobody expects him to score indeed it's probably more a case of wondering just how far off target it's going to end up. For me the problem is supporters having unrealistic expectations from him. He's 22 years old, his "development" is behind him, at best he might hone what he has but I would be amazed if he suddenly became a world beater. He has reached his level, with maturity he may refine some flaws but his decision making is the weakest part of his game and if your head isn't telling you what you should do in the next phase of play at 22 then it isn't going to change anytime soon.  In short he is decent at this level, no more no less, with a tendency to believe his own hype which I suspect is one of the main drivers behind such poor decision making.    
    • I have a cousin called Ruaraidh (Rory), Gaelic names get proper wacky!
    • =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.
