Lewis Wing has never looked good in that deeper role any time I've seen him, so playing him there in a period where he's already looking pretty bad is just a recipe for disaster.

We have already noted that I wonder why Woodgate does not?

Calm down, mates .. We are NOT going to be relegated.. 

We played well today against the top of the league team .. lost 0-1 but had most chances .. A man of the match performance by Sam Johnston was the difference ..  We are not going down, because of opposition super performances .. duuuh  .. 

We deserved at least a point .. We will have points later in the season, when we not deserve them.. So calm down .. doom and gloom mongers ..

I admire your optimism I really do, but fact of the matter is most of this season we've looked like a League 1 team that just fluked its way up, we've had absolutely horrific performances followed by some bang average performances which our fans seem to think is ok, but it's even worse that Gibbo is acceptant of this.

Football is a game of very fine marginals .. If we had won 2-1 and Johnstone didn't have a world class game .. All the mongers would have kept quiet .. Tough luck .. 

We will start getting points very soon .. I know some of you are with me here.. and if not .. then fine Iøll keep optimistic all by my self .. It was a good exciting game.. tough result but a good game .. 17 shots .. 7 on target .. That's like 5 games of last season combined .. 

We will collect points sooner or later .. Don't worry

Maybe the right scoreline today but they only just edged it. Even though they are visibly a better team than us, much better passing and moving than we have but still we kept them out of it for long periods of the game, the shape worked defensively but not enough the other way.

I think considering some were expecting a battering and on another day we could have snatched it ourselves is a bit of a positive. 

Throwing a flare when you're beating a team in the lower regions of the league is a bit embarrassing, mind. No more embarrassing than when our fans sang we're going up under Monk and Pulis but embarrassing all the same.

It's not the first game, where in a fair world we should have had something .. I think we deserves at least 5 points more than what we have this season .. The variance will even out and we will get points where we don't deserv'em... 

And my optimism stays on .. It's a bit harsh read on here sometimes .. But I don't mind ..  Things will go well.. and we will NOT get relegated ..

Gibbo has to be acceptant of this, it's of his bloody making. If this team fails, it's on him more than anyone now, including our manager.

You’re way too optimistic. We will be fighting relegation all season just like we have so far. I hate to say it so soon but we need a new manager with a bit more experience.

Some fine words from SD and would be great if his words are prophetic.

Just seen the table, that tells a different story I am afraid

And you are way to pessimistic 😉 

Have a nice weekend trip

    • Yes I can’t argue with that @TLF10 this season is a write off. We need to stay in the championship and try build for next season.
    • Agree @Blanco. Happy to have him if sums add up for 6 months. If we can get him, plus 2 wide players n a striker i will be happy.   Maddison seems to be one of the wide players we want Jack Clarke or someone else on loan and a striker. Someone mentioned Clarke Harris from Bristol. Hopefully signings in Jan can be a mix of maybe 2 permanant signings n 2 loan signings. If its only loan signings in Jan it makes a huge job of rebuilding in summer a monumental one. So if we can start the long term rebuilding with 1 or 2 permanant signings in jan that be good
    • Top work @boro-unger. Great post. I do not expect McNairs red to be overturned and if JW looks at it properly its not even worth appealing it. (Now i said that it probably will get overturned) Think team and subs picks itself given lack of numbers: Pears Howson Ayala Fry Spence Tav Wing Sav Coulson Fletch Britt Subs: Meijas, Wood, Bola, Clayton, Marv, Rudy, Walker My heart says a nervy 1 nil win. Am trying to be positive so i wont share what my head is saying
    • I think bringing Ben Gibson back makes sense. He is a proven performer in this league. Bringing players up from the league below is a risk and we have showed that with our summer purchases.  We need players who can guarantee that they can perform at this level. 
    • And there was me thinking after Saturdays game that pantomime season had started a little earlier this year. But it makes more sense now you mention it to keep the wage bill down with suspensions.
