People literally won't like any of his line-ups. Hanging on the edge of their seat waiting to berate him for his Pulis selection. It's the same, every week. Even though everyone knows the selection won't be attacking, it won't encompass as many attacking players as people want, even if they do people immediately talk about how much of a *** he is for sticking strikers on the wing, etc. etc. Everyone literally knows what's coming but can't wait to kick up a fuss about it when it happens like it's a bloody surprise.

I can't wait until we lose to lead a match thread that encompasses more of this pre-match vitriol. :)

 

what are people supposed to say if they don't like the line up!? This line up has FIVE central midfielders in it. FIVE.

 

you think that's acceptable and/or normal?

 

Worry is we are already behind the top two and need to make up points, if we are setting up for a draw at Birmingham then where does Pulis actually expect these wins are going to come. We’re 6 points off top two more than half way through the season, we need wins against average mid table sides because we certainly aren’t good enough to beat any of the top six at the moment

Not to mention the usual 3 centre defenders which we just seem to have accepted at this point.

Well you're automatically wrong there. Reread the reaction to the midweek line-up

people liked his line-up against Peterborough and liked his half time changes...so that's just absolute *** Wilson.

some harsh comments about the line up lads.  its decent imo,considering the options.

VLP isnt up to speed yet, so i can accept him only on the bench, Downing not in the startng line up is a positive, The only change i could make an arguement for is  Tavernier instead of  Besic .

You expected the Peterborough match to make a difference to this one? I'm calling rubbish.

You lost me with the first line. I think plenty of people would like his lineups, if it was a good lineup.

 

I know you’re bored/frustrated with everyone having an opinion on the man, but maybe some are bored/frustrated with you telling them they’re ***ting the bed for having a negative opinion.

Sorry but with one of the most expensive teams in the league when people pay thousands every season following the club, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect to see a little attacking, entertaining football

so just because I know he's gonna be *** doesn't mean I can't be annoyed when he is then ***?

 

are you saying we should all just happily accept the negative line ups he keeps serving up to us because we know it's coming?

 

I don't really follow the logic.

Everyone is entitled to complain and I agree with the majority of it. I suppose it just gets a bit boring listening to some people complaining on every single thread.

 

I know it's been awful to watch but for a few people on here they literally dont seem to find a single thing that is positive.

    • I'm surprised that Gestede has actually managed 178 games in his career so I just checked and according to Wiki he has managed 284 games over his entire career which for a 32 year old isn't many. Smith at three years younger has played 410 games so at least he may be available for selection instead of sending in a sick note. They both seem to have a 1:4 ratio which isn't great but much more useful if fit and available and that's before we consider the respective costs involved for fees and wages.
    • There was an astonishing story in the Guardian about why Magath bombed at Fulham, shortly after he left. It sounds like we dodged a bullet by not appointing him. https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2014/sep/20/fulham-farewell-magath-felix-madcap That said, it's extremely narrow-minded and parochial to dismiss a German manager because he'd supposedly turn the town of Middlesbrough into an enclave of ze Faterland. Wonder what changed in the run-up to Aitor's arrival?
    • Yeah, you have no idea. I had it all written out, it's crazy. I also just realised I have the very last scenario wrong. If Denmark win 1-0, Finland lose 2-1 and Denmark get only 1 disciplinary point more than Finland, Denmark will still finish 2nd. It's only if Denmark get 2 or more greater than Finland that they will finish 3rd. Basically, that scenario with those scores and only 1 yellow card more than Finland goes all the way to the last tiebreaker. Which goes all the way back to the qualifying groups and compares position, then points, goal difference etc. But even though Finland got more points than Denmark in qualifying (they finished in the same position), Finland got 6 of those points against the 6th placed team. Because some of the groups have 6 teams (Finland) and some groups have 5 (Denmark), they re-do the tables as if nobody ever played the 6th placed team. So Denmark would retain their 16 points, Finland would drop from 18 to 12 as if they never played Liechtenstein.
    • Well it could be, if they haven't been recommending the kind of players he is looking for. Or else it speaks to more poor communication if they haven't been given the right instructions. Some people adopt the, "If you want something done properly...do it yourself..." philosophy if they find others aren't doing what they want. Maybe thats whats going on here...unless Warnock has had the same approach at his other clubs. 🤷‍♂️  
    • come on the danes, the incentive must be if you get though in second. wales in the last 16. surely u guys can beat that lot.  Danish power come on u reds.
