    Steve Morison Retires.

    I think that might have been against Blackburn, a 3-3 draw, Holty got a late penalty.

    You shall be On The Ball Cinders

    I think it was Otamendi.

    Man Utd at home

    We're only on TV when we're expected to get battered, now that we've spoiled the fun, by beating Man City, the broadcasters are being a little more selective.

    Sticker book exclusions

    Is Darel Russell a forward too?
  5. Maybe we should look at the number of Premier League appearances, experience at the top level may also be a factor.
  6. When we lost against Burnley, we didn't become dreadful overnight, but constructive criticism is justified and realistic suggestions on how to improve shouldn't be discouraged. No one says you can't express an opinion, I just don't agree that calling our Team 'appalling' is 'constructive' or 'justified' We've just been promoted, we couldn't compete in the market over the summer and our squad has been decimated by injuries. If you said our performance was disappointing, I'd be inclined to agree.
  7. Easy in hindsight, hopefully it's a lesson learned, we move on.

    We need a Plan B

    I accept the point that our goals against is a concern, I'll raise that by pointing out that we've played the European Champions, last year's treble winners and the Europa Cup Winners. No other Team has had a harder start and when you factor in our injuries, especially at the back, I think we're not doing too badly...... That said, if we're still as leaky as a colander once they're all back I'll take a different view.

    We need a Plan B

    1) a lot of Teams don't put players on posts anymore, that's how Kenny scored against the League Champions. 2) Your example, not mine.

    We need a Plan B

    The point is that we don't have the personnel, the way Farke plays accepts that we will concede a few, I, for one am happy with that. As for Big Sam's Teams, agricultural is the best description, I hope we never play that kind of football.

    Enjoy it

    It's the 'joy' some people get, listing the faults in our performance, from players off their game to the coach's replacement decisions......... I don't remember these people being quite so lively last week.

    MOTD penalty claim

    My partner is Tim Cahill's Auntie and I can tell you he's never 'raged' at anything....... so it must have been bad.

    The Inevitable Comedown

    Puts the plan 'B' complaints to bed.
  14. Everyone's entitled to an opinion of course, it's just that sometimes it seems that there's some perverse pleasure taken by some to list our faults ad infinitum.

    Crystal Palace

    .... don't worry, be happy

    Seconded, just like after the Hammers game, all these softcox, picking holes, bit of backbone required here. Webber said we'd be up against it this season and it's going to be a long one if we don't back our boys. We had the smallest budget and now have a pile of injuries to contend with, a little perspective please.

    We need a Plan B

    If defending corners is 'basic' then Pep has a real problem, the most expensively assembled squad in the World have a terrible record defending all set pieces. Perhaps you should give him a call, tell him to get them out on the training pitch.

    Crystal Palace

    We've played the European Champions and 2 solid mid table sides with a budget squad ravaged by injuries...... a bit of balance please.

    Todd Cantwell

    Someone suggested on another thread that he's likely to burn out this season.... I'm not sure who to believe

    Chris Martin v Leeds

    Which suggests that bringing on Roberts in the 91st minute has some merit

    We lost, it happens, get over it. You seem to be on a Crusade tonight, tone it down.
  22. splendidrush

    Lawrenson and Nicholas

    ....... and last week they all got it wrong, massively wrong.
  23. A bit of balance here guys, last week we were Barcelona, this week we're 1p5wich.

    Todd Cantwell

    Don't understand the comparison, different types of player .... in fact the only thing they have in common is the shirt number.
