*** Pulis lost us this, Braithwaite and Adama changes were *** shocking. Just invited pressure on us.

 

Adama was gone and needed to come off - he’d started to leave men spare

 

Johnson looked like it backfired big time. He started so well here but now looks very poor

 

I'm with you that he maybe needed to come off. But taking off our only 2 creative players and bringing on Clayton and ***ing Johnson was horrendous.

Robbed. But a huge improvement in how we played at Fulham. I’m beginning to see real positive steps for pullis Created loads of chances defended well closed them down quickly. It seems obvious to me that downing can set free adama all yr but traore has to play on the right. Anywhere else and he disappears from the game

By the way Grant clearly stood on his foot for the penalty.

 

Where did you see that? I've just been watching replays showing none or bare minimum contact. Certainly nothing which would impede him in any way. What angle showed he stood on him? Maybe the channel I'm watching doesn't have it.

I’m not sure he had a lot of choices for the braithwaite sub (other than leave him on). The other subs were Bamford (back from flu) or Fletcher (totally useless) or Johnson (similar). Yet again we’ve proved we need to have a bit more quality in the final third. Come on Gibbo, get your cheque book out (but ffs don’t let our scouting dept get involved....)

I guess TP wanted to see Johnson - I hope he’s seen enough!

A tale of two halfs. First half we should have won it, plenty of good chances wasted. A clear penalty not given. Second half w invited pressure. I think adama was struggling a little in the second half. But i didnt think we should of took braithwaite off he was lively and looked good today. I agree with clayton coming on but like someone else said for leadbitter who looked tired. Johnson looked awful imo should have brought bamford on and go 442 instead.

I think that sums things up accurately.

 

How much have we spent on those three - about £15m? Ouch.

A few thoughts:

 

1. The referee was looking directly at Braithwaite and Kalas for our penalty appeal, I want an explanation for WTF he saw that made that not be a penalty.  The only thing that was missing was the wrestling ring!!

 

2. For their penalty it looked like there was minimal contact but Norwood was already leaning to go down, he knew he'd lost the ball.  It's silly from Leadbitter to be putting a foot in there, and he got played like a fiddle for putting his foot in.

 

3. How was there 5 minutes of extra time in the first place for them to be given a 94th minute penalty?  There wasn't that many stoppages at all, strange how Fulham knew to start ramping up their play 10 mins from the end and then are gifted an extra 5 mins to apply the pressure.

 

4. Johnson hasn't improved at all, hell if we need a player to get the ball and run into defenders and lose the ball under their feet I'd be happy to do it.  I'd be waaaayyy cheaper than Johnson, we were robbed on that transfer if we paid more than a McFlurry for him.

 

5. We were punished for not being clinical enough, we created chances but the final touches weren't there.  Gestede rushed his shot and should have taken it around the keeper first.  Britts chance was an even better opportunity, I'd expect him to score that.

Seems to be the same old story. Sadly.

 

How do you work that out?

 

Referee denied us the most blatant penalty you'll ever see. We score that and Fulham aren't getting back into the game, they were *** dire.

 

I meant more - a little but of optimism going into the game. Play offs looking likely. Autos looking possible. A tough, but winnable game. And it all goes tits up. Fair enough the pen shouldn’t have been given. But we also hadn’t scored up until that point .

 

I think when people start talking about ‘win and we are in the play offs’ is the time it is guaranteed to go wrong. In whatever way that takes.

So we looked a lot better than the statistic tells I assume from reading on here

 

Missed the game, but reading the statistics only we seemed to been ***e lol

So glad to see that it was just "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

    • Forget fancy Dan formations this squad is crying out for 442 two fast wingers ,Crooks and Tav in the middle ,a solid stay at home defenders ,find a goalie were all set.
    • Judging by the melt down on here, FMTTM, plus comments in the Gazette, Warnock is walking a tightrope. Anything less than a sterling display v Reading will seal his fate. A live match to ponder the teams short comings with NW's histrionics on the sideline will leave a lot of unhappy campers. Hopefully the team and Warnock are up to the challenge. UTB.
    • It’s not like they’d make a secret plan to get warnock to quit. The guy meant Scott will get on with the job he’s tasked to do, he will want to make an impression and get things going ASAP. His interference will probably annoy warnock who will most likely walk if results carry on as they are.  If gibson didn’t want Scott to throw his weight about and make certain decisions then he wouldn’t have employed him. Equally if gibson hadn’t given/promised Scott certain responsibilities then he probably wouldn’t have took the job. He isn’t just here to be a scout.
    • I think you are reading and interpreting what you want to get angry about rather than what i actually said. I expect every manager to have his approval on all signings even Warnock, even though he wont be here in a years time. Peltier was signed as cover for Fisher who we knew was out for a long while, we absolutely needed him. He clearly can plug a gap, not ideal, but he did ok at LB. we absolutely needed another CB. McNair is useless in a back 4 but ok in a back 3. Like I say, I expect every manager to plan for their team and have their approval over the choice of an owner. As for Scott, we have no way of knowing how successful he will be, what his Job description is or how much autonomy he will have, you are peeing in the wind if you hazard an answer. Gibson has always been hands on,, i don’t see that changing sadly. Since 2006 the owners vision has been wrong more than right, as have his appointments. Don’t take that to mean I am ungrateful for his efforts, without him, we’d not have a club, but goodness me he is due a right decision. I know he is trying his utmost but is having to do so with an imbalanced squad. He does not sign players, that isn’t his job it is Gibson and Bausor that do a deal or walk away. They have tried hard to fix the final third with more pace, flair and finishing, unfortunately the defence has been holed as a result.    I am not suggesting Spence and Coulson were great players, but they are better than nothing. Are you suggesting Warnock prefers Jones as a LB to Coulson? He doesn’t, he is having to make do and mend.  We have no holding midfielder. Howson is doing a job but it is not his best position. He is not refusing to sign foreign left backs at all, you are spinning his comments. He said they haven’t found anyone that fits the bill after being unable to fund UK based LB’s. Why you interpret it as a refusal is odd when he had no say over Morsy and some other signings is beyond silly. Getting a player to agree to come knowing they are going to be mere cover, from abroad especially, in a pandemic too, when you have no money, will not be a doddle, it isn’t like a pic and mix at the cinema.    Get off his back and support his efforts for now, he is not trying to set us up to fail, he has the best record of any manager in the league, but that was with his mix of players, blame the players for their part in the poor performances too and the goals we concede. Warnock deserves some criticism but it needs to be for his failures, not those of others. You can rejoice his departure come May which isn’t long for you to wait. 
    • Then it's not all about Scott. It'll never be all about anyone else with Gibson around. Scott undoubtedly doesn't want Warnock as manager to begin with, it doesn't fit with anything he's been involved in previously. Regardless though, Gibson isn't going to *** off his mate Warnock, he's not going to let someone dictate to Warnock how to do his job, and the idea that they'd try and annoy Warnock into quitting is ridiculous.
