  1. No. If we don't go up then we will lose some key players mean that we may not challenge again next year. If we do go up Wagner hasn't yet shown that he has the necessary technical nous, nor will we get a sudden influx of better players to help our cause. In either case Wagner's status is now as high as it is likely to get, so I expect him to be off in the summer.
  2. If Sargent doesn't play in these upcoming games, and we don't pick up points, then any remaining games become largely irrelevant.
  3. Not really. It's a necessary call. Without Sargent we are nothing, so we need to play him whenever possible and despite the risk.
  4. Sorry, but I do. Although, I must admit, that is not necessarily my first thought.
  5. Based on previous games and interesting playing positions, Wagner could provide the opportunity for one of our central defenders to become the new 'ginger pele'?
  6. Unfortunately Suarez deserves a mention, for too many goals.
  7. To be fair, a lot of our players have looked out of their depth at times this season. Not just the younger ones.
  8. But Wagner stated after the game that Sargent was taken off for 'tactical' reasons, any injury must have happened subsequently. Perhaps a splinter when he sat on the bench?😂
  9. I think that last night's performance is a good indication of how much we rely on Sargent. Without him, Wagner 'goes negative' and we, as a team, collapse. Unfortunately we have a fragile underbelly and have had for some time now. We need Sargent, more than any other player and perhaps also the manager.
  10. Perhaps if we hadn't been 2-0 up, but we were. There is now way to disguise this result as anything other that 2 points dropped.
  11. Nope. Will worry about them when (if) we get there. First things first.
  12. It's also on the Red Button, I believe.
  13. Never have forgiven Everton for their performance against Coventry that season we got relegated.
  14. The problem wasn't letting Idah go, rather who he was replaced with.
  15. Cannot answer that one. What I can say though is that he has subsequently tweaked the system. We no longer play with out and out wide players, but have Sainz and Sara playing 'inverted' roles. Whether that was by design or accident is anyones guess, but we are more successful now.
  16. Depends on how many and which players leave in the summer. Any replacements will not have any affinity with Wagner.
  17. I think people, In the main, recognise the injury problems that we have had. Although, probably, other Club's may have had similar issues. The problem that I have with Wagner is that 18 game (or whatever it was) sequence before Christmas when he seemed unprepared to change his tactics and system despite the players required to play that way being injured. There was little doubt in my mind that when those players regained fitness (or had remained fit) we had a squad and team capable of competing at the top end of the league.
  18. Apologies if that is indeed the case. I don't follow Scottish football but when I have 'dipped in' to Rangers matches I thought that he had been on the bench.
  19. Nope. He's been on the bench a lot recently.
  20. No more than what could reasonably be expected. If Wagner is to be given credit he also has to take some blame. Unfortunately he has been unable to sort out our poor away performances, along with the team's tenancy to 'drop off' whenever we get in front in a game. Today's performance (good as it was) and result (even better) provided an indication of how we should have been playing in more games this season. If we had, a top six place would probably have been assured and we may have been competing for an automatic place.
  21. Best picture ever of a Norwich v Ipswich match. It apitimises everything it means to us as supporters.
  22. Go. Like a number of positions, we need to be looking for better players. Whether we can get them is a different matter.
  23. Whilst we have some good individual players, they have the better team. Unfortunately. The relative league positions and overall performances emphasis this. If we are to get anything out of Saturday's match our 'good' players will need to step up to the plate whilst hoping that Ipswich cannot exploit our weaknesses.
