  1. I said the same thing a couple of seasons ago, during the close season after we had got promoted. Everyone was mocking Ipswich & BFJ about missing out on promotion (again) & how we were going to qualify for Europe in our first season back in the prem. OK, I don''t think we are as badly off as Ipswich but a slide can happen, & we''re not exactly flying at the moment are we?

  2. Have you never used an offer from somewhere else to get a better deal at your place of work?  I think you''re under the illusion that football managers should do the job for the love of it, when was the offer from Sheff Wed by the way? We were unlucky not to stay up last season IMO, remember the first half against Fulham? 2 blatant penalties turned down and a perfectly good Dean Ashton goal dissallowed but all anyone ever mentions is Francis'' lack of commitment. Hucks rounding Robinson at White Hart Lne & Ledley King just getting a foot in?  It wasn''t all bad tactics.  PS: Don''t take this as being pro-worthy, I''m not, but you can''t attack the guy for a hyperthetical situation made up by someone who attacks Worthy over every little thing.  

  3. Great coaches don''t usually make good managers, which is why they are coaches in the first place. He''s not a novice coach, and if he was going to become a manager he would have done it by now.  It''s clear he likes being "in the background", Worthy may have his faults but he does say what he thinks and stands by it.

  4. Is there a difference?  It would make a difference to Worthy, as we would all be thinking how unlucky we were (to be 7th), rather than how bad we were (to finish mid-table).  Now don''t get me wrong, I didn''t expect to walk this league but I was confident we could finish in the top six. No hang on, I meant SHOULD finish in the top six, which seems a very distant possibility now.

  5. Thats one of the reasons why fans are so disgruntled. Many (don''t know if it includes Pete), haven''t experienced the downs recently, so only think as far back as the promotion/prem seasons.  Why a lot of people are annoyed is the style of football we are playing at the moment, we used to be known for attractive passing football, but this season it is shocking.  I think the point Pete tries to make is that the club will only listen/act if people start protesting with their wallets, rather than on here.  Unfortunately, all Pete has done is offend people who want to renew season tickets, which is their own choice and they shouldn''t be condemned for it.

  6. I can''t comment about the game as I wasn''t there, but it doesn''t sound great does it? It has to be said though, if the atmosphere was subdued that will affect the players & make them edgy. This was actually commented on by the Sky Sports reporter when Hux scored.  We do seem to have genuine pace upfront now but what use is it when we don''t seem to be able to pass to them? 3-0 against Brighton is no turning point, but the plyers will feel they have done their job.
