    Byram, Zimbo, Hanley and Klose are all very injury prone, Aarons, Lewis, and Godfrey are all possible departures this summer, Famewo did quite well whilst out on loan this season but he’s only played a few minutes for us, and I’m afraid I’m not entirely convinced about McCallum and Mumba as they’re yet to make a first team appearance for us

    Just like others have said we need to look for experienced defenders who aren’t injury prone, preferably from a Championship or Premiership side and maybe in the age range of 23-28

    So just to confirm,

    The defence that we went up with and now have a years Premier League experience, now arent good enough and are suddenly all injury prone?

    And we should replace them all with better, not injury prone, players aged 23-28 from the Premier League which are really cheap if not free?

    1. If I have to read other people's negative nonsense, then why should they not have to read my positive nonsense?

    2. It's not about me, it's about our football club - and the balance is skewed when you look on here sometimes - and on social media generally. Shouting, anger and running the club down - and for what? It does no good, it doesn't help the club and it certainly doesn't make anything better. Balance is what is needed - more moderate voices and common sense to put the other side of the discussion, even if that gets shouted down too.

    3. It's not all the time

    4. I may be self absorbed, but I am more absorbed about why people are so set against the club and what it is trying to do.

    1. Because after the season we've had, the negative nonesense is much closer to actual reality than your unsubstantiated guff. 

    2. It is.

    3. Holy jesus christ, it really is, pre-match, post-match, mid-week, think you even dropped a 'in-play' post this week.

    4. No maybe about it, you are.

    It's another thread putting the other side of the story. We get thread after thread on here full of anger about the owners, the manager, certain players etc etc - and not enough of the balanced arguments. If I keep repeating stuff, it is to make sure the other side of the argument gets as much air time as much as the often over the top and sometimes fake anger.  In the real world, anger is not everywhere you go - but on here it appears that it is - and that is a false situation. 

    So the more anger and negativity I see on here, the more I am likely to post my stuff, because I do not want to spend my time on here just reading negative nonsense. So if people want me to stop posting about their unreasonable expectations and over the top reactions to setbacks - then they just need to stop doing it. The club is fine, it will carry on, it will have good days again as much as it has bad days this season. It is football and there will always be ups and downs. No need for too much anger - especially this season of all seasons with the way it has had to be messed about with.

     

     

    But we have to read you positive nonsense?

     

    Why is this all about you?

    All the time? 

    You are so self absorbed it's unreal.

    I think I had too much wine last night.........

    Pathetic behaviour from a fully grown adult. 

     

    Just to confirm is this really ANOTHER LDC thread telling people how they should feel?

    Farke should Regret Not having a plan B 

    Not setting u a team hard to Beat 

    Not going Direct sometimes to get the ball in the other teams box and see what happens 

    He has made a lot of mistakes 

    i have a Feeling that he will walk and is deflecting a lot of the blame to well what did you expect i am still the wonder coach but i did not have a chance 

     True Wonder Coach like Lambert when he was here brought a team up and installed a team ethnic / system  to stay up 

    Farke did not do that and the season has been a disaster with all types of  unwanted records 

     

    Farke should Regret Not having a plan B 

    I totally get what you're saying but he needs to have the resource to have a Plan B.

    We couldnt move to 3 at the back because well we couldnt get 2 centre backs fit, never mind 3.

    We could'nt move to two up top cause one of them one have been Drmic - Lol.

    Not setting u a team hard to Beat 

    Again, hard with no tough centre midfields - Amadou was the hope unfortunaltey it didnt work out. Tettey did incredibly well but we needed more.

    Not going Direct sometimes to get the ball in the other teams box and see what happens

    We couldnt be more direct because Pukki, Cantwell, Buendia would have got mullered.

    However would we could/should have done was 'get rid' a little more ofter.

    Lots of goals have come from mistakes in areas of the pitch the ball shouldnt have been, we got aaway with it in the Championship, you dont in the Premier League.

     

    Ultimatey our failure has come down to recuitment, we didnt really do any and the bit we did was utterly dreadful - Only Byram can come out with any credit from all of our signings/loans.

    Farke and Webber have built up enough brownie points to have my support for another season.

    If we can keep the vast majority of our squad together, we are a year stronger and mature and I'm sure we'll be in the hunt to return to the Premier League.

  6. Buck stops with SW for me.

    However he has built up enough points that I'll back him into next season.

    For sure Farke as made mistakes but like SW he has built enough brownie points up for me to back him into next season.

    Our major failing as been recruitment - Not just lack off but the recruitment we did was sensationally p*iss poor to the point all three players we brought in on loan lasted what, six months tops before they were whisked off to some other club.

    Duda - well words fail me and I'm not going to allow Rupp to be made a scapegoat but hes way off Premier League class.

    We look, to be in a good position to to complete for a position back in the Premier League but the Championship is a unpredictable rollercoaster.

    Not hiding, I've never hidden.

    Look you don't understand, that's fine, I've tried explaining it, that is all I can do. 

    I didn't expect us to be 4th. I wrote it in a prediction thread, yes - but I don't really do predictions as such, it was more like looking in on a thread seeing people so certain of the outcome this season and who started arguing with people who said anything different as if there was something wrong with them and saying to them "look, you don't know how this season is going to pan out, anything can happen".    Sheffield Utd have done really well - and we could have too - the Zimmermann injury then Hanley's on top of Klose's injury did for us and we lost any momentum we had. Even so we still played some good football along the way.  Yes, I like to be positive, but I do not prejudge the results of matches or seasons before thery have happened and I'll steer clear of prediction threads in future.....unless people start pontificating about how bad we are going to do.........

    Now if you still don't understand, just leave it alone.

    Guys calm down we're not up yet.

    Win promotion by 11 points

    What I meant was "It's about not allowing yourself to think you know exactly what an outcome will be before it has happened"  

     

    Guys we can break into the top3 this year

    Bottom, f**king rock bottom.

    What I meant was "It's about not allowing yourself to think you know exactly what an outcome will be before it has happened"  

     

    7 cup finals left we can do this

    Nope, still bottom.

    What I meant was "It's about not allowing yourself to think you know exactly what an outcome will be before it has happened"  

     

    Guys were going to beat Man U and be in a FA Cup Semi final

    Nah, zilch, zip, nada.

    What I meant was "It's about not allowing yourself to think you know exactly what an outcome will be before it has happened"  

     

    Coming above Bourmenouth would be an achievment, lets not come bottom

    Yep, still bottom.

    What I meant was "It's about not allowing yourself to think you know exactly what an outcome will be before it has happened"  

     

    Our playing style is like Liverpool and Man City

    Really? Tell me more how about their 630minute spell where they scored just once.

    What I meant was "It's about not allowing yourself to think you know exactly what an outcome will be before it has happened"  

     

    Now do you understand?

    And thats why you have zero credibility.


  8. Heart breaking to see how much we have regressed both as a team and individually.

    To think the plaudits we were getting, the star striker, Emi, the local boy thriving and 3 incredbily talented and valuable defenders.

    To getting rolled over by **** poor teams, showing no fight or heart and being powder puff in both final thirds.

    Yes and I've explained that above if you care to read it again. It's about not expecting to be bottom or top, not expecting to be promoted or not promoted....oh actually, I give up. Read my post above again if you can be bothered. 

    Which of course in true LDC form means nothing at all;

    Why bother to make so many bold statments and predictions if with you undoubtdly make yourself look stupid then hide behind;

    "It's about not allowing yourself to think you know exactly what an outcome will be before it has happened"

    Did you bother to read my post all the way through?  If you did you might understand what was said a bit better. But then you probably didn't read it all the way through in your haste to be unpleasant. If that is how you want to be, fine, but at least have the decency to try and understand what is being written a bit more often. Here, I'll help you - the post said " it's not just about being positive, it's about not allowing yourself to think you know exactly what an outcome will be before it has happened". 

     

    True or False?

    In April/May you played down our also certain promotion and in August you'd tipped us up for Top3?

    Again, your opinion is always that which gets you the most attention.

    didnt Sounds like I haven't grown up then. Well in a way I'm fine with that.  The thing is, the reality last season was people were sagely shaking their heads and saying we were no good and/or heading for League 1, up to that draw at portaloo road - and my schoolboy optimism (if that is what you want to call it) said to me that we could start winning - and we did.  So my view that we should not be too certain about what will happen has some sense to it. 

    I try never to write us off and never think anything is done until it is done, so it's not just about being positive, it's about not allowing yourself to think you know exactly what an outcome will be before it has happened.

     

    Didn't you then pour cold water on out promotion chances and have a very pesimistic outlook when everyone else was optimistic?

    You cant have it both ways.

    But you will, cause that gets you the attention you so desperatley crave.

    While I do agree we wouldn't have lost 4 on the spin, I don't think one win would have put us back in contention- lockdown has also had a huge negative affect on our rivals and I don't imagine under normal circumstances we'd have seen Villa, Bournemouth and Watford all go 4 games without a win too.

    Doesn't fit his narrative though.

    I don't think we would have lost four league games in a row without scoring if the season had continued as normal without a break. I strongly believe that we would have picked up at least one win in that run, giving us hope for the run in.  That is why I say the lockdown did us.

     

    You've strongly believed a lot of things this season, they've all been wrong too.
