*** 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."

    • This is hardly encouraging considering we are going to need two “Striker wise, we’ve probably been looking for 12 months – and we’re still no nearer getting one.”
    • I think there's a clause in his contract that states he's to blame for every goal we concede...even if he isn't playing. Apart from the ones that are obviously Bettinelli's fault. 😉  
    • Good point - probably the year after then. God its like discussing how much longer Warnock is going to go on for, isn't it? 😁   Fair point. A big part of longevity and how long you maintain your physical fitness, mental faculties etc. is down to how active you are and how you exercise the grey matter. She should probably start doing a couple of laps of Sandringham every morning, Captain Tom style. Followed by a leisurely afternoon of sudoku, then an intense evening session of Call of Duty. 😉    
    • Yeah it’s not the same scenario as your Aunty Doris that lived in sheltered accommodation in Redcar with just a portable tv a fan heater and a pile of Gardner’s World magazines for company, that pines for her recently departed husband, complains about the food and doesn’t get on with the rest of the residents, especially that Maureen who drinks Campari on Friday afternoons and insists on being a member of every club and committee going. 
    • I wonder how many goals will be Djed Spence's fault today, and those that aren't, still are 🤔😭
