Re: Pilgrims Progress

4) Finally, several key players put in a decent shift in the same game. When Henry is in that mood, he can be almost unplayable. The turn he executed to get away from two defenders and ultimately set up Mackie for the opener was superb. Holmes was outstanding - finally playing for us like he (and to...

Reading through what KR said about Whyte, and O'N...

"Ranger has not kicked a ball in nine months and is currently nursing a knee injury"
So, perfect for us then.

Re: Robinson Out

I am not trying to deflect any criticism from Robinson, but I suspect the problem is overwhelmingly confidence - players like Hanson, Dickie and Nelson are making basic mistakes that they would never normally do. Shouting at them and making endless changes won't help. Don't be bashful. You are very...

Re: Robinson Out

Many excellent points (and yes, KE, I think we are largely in agreement). One thought about strikers. On Saturday, KR said they had tried so many things, including two strikers, and they had not worked. First thought - he did not persist as long with that as he has with one up front. Second - this a...

Re: Robinson Out

Who said anything about ad infinitum? Appoint a competent replacement - of course. Pay KR off - of course. Avoid 4th division football - of course. Quickly - ideally, although getting the right appointment is presumably more important? Hope that results improve - no shit. Get the sale through - if t...

Re: Robinson Out

His post-match interviews are so bad they are becoming funny (or would be if our club were not in such a dire position). He persists with a formation that is not leading to the creation of decent chances. Watching the lowlights again Wimbledon online, too often the shots towards goal were panicked h...

Re: City slickers

yes but no but... I too thought about the Arsenal comparison, but here we were up against the most expensively assembled club squad in history, that has skill, power and pace in such abundance - and yet who, for much of the first half, were reduced to shooting from distance (that exquisite turn and ...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

Silly question time - what would we get if we bought 'the stadium'? How much of the surrounding area would come with this? Would we have to pay extra to get sufficient land to build a fourth stand? And what would reduced car parking mean for a stadium with increased capacity? Whilst I can see all of...

Personally i don't believe a word the man (kassam) says.
And he differs from other owners we have had how, precisely? Not defending Kassam, merely suggesting that words are cheap (unlike football stadia).

Coventry Blues

First game of the season for me, an upturn in form, playing a team we had already beaten this season. I was really looking forward to this...but oh what a shambles. Until Coventry scored from a deflection, this was two teams who clearly deserved to be at the bottom of the table. Our obsession with p...

Re: New signings

So, we now won't be signing Wes Hoolahan , who Karl Robinson had talked about openly after Saturday's game as being his next big target. Simple question from me - why name a player and add pressure onto yourself as a manager by raising fans' expectations unless you're sure the deal is done? I canno...
