  1. Maybe we should look at the number of Premier League appearances, experience at the top level may also be a factor.
  2. 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.
  3. Easy in hindsight, hopefully it's a lesson learned, we move on.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. My partner is Tim Cahill's Auntie and I can tell you he's never 'raged' at anything....... so it must have been bad.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. We've played the European Champions and 2 solid mid table sides with a budget squad ravaged by injuries...... a bit of balance please.
  13. Someone suggested on another thread that he's likely to burn out this season.... I'm not sure who to believe
  14. Which suggests that bringing on Roberts in the 91st minute has some merit
  15. We lost, it happens, get over it. You seem to be on a Crusade tonight, tone it down.
  16. A bit of balance here guys, last week we were Barcelona, this week we're 1p5wich.
  17. Don't understand the comparison, different types of player .... in fact the only thing they have in common is the shirt number.
  18. Not having this, he's the 'Norwich Emi', this boy is good enough to create his own place in football history.
  19. Don't underestimate Bournemouth, a draw would be an excellent result.
  20. I'm sure it was some baldy bloke called Noble or something. Seem to remember it being in the papers the following day, that he'd scored 4 goals and still didn't get a win bonus.
  21. We have to remember that we only have a 37 game season as we play at the Etihad on the last day and we have no cha.............. oh
