    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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  10. Of the valuables;

    I wouldnt be surprise to see Buendia, Cantwell, Aarons and Godfrey gone.

    Lewis I think we'll keep as I dont think we'll get a offer deemed accepted.

    Krul I hope will stay;

    Leaving a back five of Krul, Byram, Hanley, Zimmerman and Lewis.

    In midfield;

    Surely its the end for Mo and probably Stepi

    Tettey seems to be as evergreen, if we can keep him fit and protected he can be pivotal next season, hopefully with Melvin Setti as like for like replacement.

    Kenny apparently drew some interest from Palace/West Ham in Jan - anywhere near £10 Million and hes gone.

    However three from, Tettey/Sitty, Trybull, Vrancic, Rupp and Mclean should suffice.

    Exited to see young Josh Martin for me he should get a vast amount of game time now, to have him ready for next season.

    Hernandez will thrive back in the Championship and Daniel Sinaini could be anything but we'll certainally need some recuritment in depth in the wide areas.

    I wouldn't be too dissapointed to see Pukki leave, he had a fantastic season last year and blistering start but just hasnt looked the same since not entirely sure where is value would be but I'd also be happy to see him start the season.

    Its going to be make a make or break year for Idah and I know he gets a bad rap on here but I've seen enough from Drmic to think he'd be a useful asset in the Premier League though I guess he wouldnt see his future in the Championhsip.

    One from Pukki/Idah plus a replacemnt for Drmic. 

    Overall we look in good shape to mount a challenge back to the Prem.

    We were already 1-0 down by that time so the dynamic of the game had changed. 

    Based on the first 45, in which we matched United, I'd say Farke got it right tonight. 

    Which coincided with United having easily their worst team to play here for 30 years on the pitch.


    Re-Rupp, hes just unfashionable. Not going to score many, not going to do anything spectacular but works hard everygame and thats overlooked.

    I see CDMullins is not at his best this morning. Got a hangover maybe?

    Same old nonsense.

    You'll never convince me that you're not just a attention seeker/troll.

    You posted your usual after match thread last night and got no attention so feel the need to start another one.

    No words, no real meaning, no evidence, no rationale, just nonsense.

    So consider this your attention, congratulations.

    Ha ha definitely NOT the worst Utd side in 30 years, they’re a big improvement on the Moyes era and this arguably the best they’ve been since Sir Alex left.

    So take a day off yourself rather than try and stick one on someone who clearly loves his club 👍

    Hahaha, you are aware that the Moyes side that beat us a CR won the Premier League the season before?

    Like literally exactly the same team.

    Van Gaal came 4th, Jose came 2nd and yet this 'best team since Fergie' is struggling to compete with Wolves, Leciester and Sheff Utd.

    Have a week off.

    If we win at Arsenal with one available centre back, it'll be nothing short of miraculous. And if we do, that would then give us a bit of impetus if other results go our way. Anything other than a miracle victory, though, and surely even you must admit it's over and we should start concentrating on next season?

    If they playing David Luiz then I guess we're both playing with one centre back.

    Time to start planning for next year.

    I can understand disappointment at losing, but the over reaction to yesterday is a bit harsh, given the circumstances we are all in.  These are unprecedented times and football is going through it's own trauma trying to deal with the conditions caused by the coronavirus.  Clubs are all in the same boat, for sure, but dealing with the situation is hard. Worst of all is there are no fans allowed at the games and this is a big factor at home matches.   

    So dig deep and look at the situation calmly and rationally and you will see an almost impossible situation. Up against it in the league being so far down, the weirdness of the situation and the continued saga of injuries to defenders and opposition of far greater resources than us. 

    Yeah, yeah, blah, blah, change the owners.........change the record more like.  A continued bleating of fans seemimgly self entitled and demanding change when we are STILL one of the best clubs in the country.  Premier league or championship, one of the best clubs in the country.  That is how we are getting to the PL so often and other clubs of greater resources can't get anywhere near it.  So you can't accept being the small resourced club that keeps coming back only to be knocked down again. Well tough. Welcome to the real world.  NCFC is the envy of many clubs in the football league - and probably some in the PL as well.  We try to play football in it's best form, not just physical dominance.  We try to play like Man City and Liverpool - the footballing dream.

    Yes, it's a dream - a dream that is worth everything - look how good we can look against ANY team - yes, we haven't been able to sustain it for long enough or score the goals that kind of play has deserved - but we can look fantastic.  Yesterday was one of those matches where we just got physically outdone and the pressure of that week after week has been telling.  Farkeball - at it's best - is fantastic - and anyone who does not think that his style of football is the best we have ever seen (when it is working well) - or at least as good as those days in the late 80s early 90s, then they are plainly just not really understanding anything. 

    So be careful - and don't be sucked into the dramas that social media throws up - the ones where anti-ncfc trolls try to paint a terrible picture of the club - we know who you are.  Think for yourselves - look at it with an open mind - yes, yesterday was an awful match, but try and accept that the circumstances are against us.  Sure some things could be done differently, but in Farke we trust........or should do, given his achievements with us so far.  

    Imo, the first matches in this closed door series are unknowns for everyone, players and fans alike - it's all very strange. We came off badly yesterday, but there will be lessons learned and the experience of that first weird scenario of a match will help us next time.

    The miracle is still there to be had, looking unlikely, I know, but hang in there, we know we can play great football - and maybe there are some twists and turns to come.

    Groundhog day,

    I bet you wrote that 'piece' at the start of April and it all ready to copy and paste.
