Re: Wigan warblings

Interesting that Wigan's principal attacking tactic was a diagonal lump from Dunkley towards their inside left... and much of their frustration was borne of Rob Dickie winning virtually every resultant header (and Nels or Kane clearing up when he didn't). Last chance for me to see the boys before t...

Re: Wigan warblings

I went last night and really quite enjoyed it. Wigan had the majority of the possession and chances but were by no means dominant. Annoying to concede so late but given that I expected nothing from the evening, I wasn't too disappointed. Good to see Nelson get 90 minutes, he and Dickie were excelle...

Re: Going Down??

Have a try with this predictor table:

I have us being safe on 52 points (draw v Sarfend, draw v Donny, win v Dale).

Re: Going Down??

No offence taken OY - I hope you're all better now. I've actually agreed with much of what you've written of late (not very interesting to just post something saying I agree though!) but I do think that although under Pep we had some shocking performances, we also had some quality ones as well - Pb...

Re: Going Down??

The rewriting of history by those on here who wanted Pep out is reaching ridiculous levels. The way we played against Fleetwood was the best we have played since September/October? Really? Losing one nil at home against a team that has struggled all season had a better performance than: - Pboro 1 -...

Re: Going Down??

The Oldham result (and performance) on Saturday was a hammer blow to our relegation fight. The Fleetwood result (despite the performance) on Tuesday was like a kick (with run up) to the plums. If we do go down, and I desperately hope we don't, I have huge confidence in Robinson to get us back up at ...

Re: Big pile of poo-sbury (not really)

Interestingly I watched the game on Good Friday with a friend of mine who has played over 350 professional games of football in the last 15 years. Watching the game with someone who has actually played it is amazing. There was a point where Ledson ran down the Scunny goalie and got a round of appla...

Re: Big pile of poo-sbury (not really)

We are improving. The difference that KR is making is clear in the fighting spirit of the players. We are getting nearer to a settled side now, and we are creating a lot more chances. Stat of the week is that before the Shrews game, we had scored more goals than them this season, which is bizarre. Q...

Re: Tiger

I like the new design. Would have been nice to include the 125, but otherwise, well thought through.

Re: Argyle trial

We could indeed have had the game postponed. My understanding is this didn’t happen because we would have lost the Sky TV money.

Re: Argyle trial

I can. Mowatt's behaviour was disgraceful. Completely unacceptable. He let everyone down and may well have cost us vital points. In a game that Pompey started very well, we came back into it for the last 20 minutes of the first half, and by half time, no one could have grumbled had we gone in on lev...

Re: Karl Robinson

At the end of the day, the process and other candidates no longer matter. We have a new manager and, just like any other new manager, he should get our full support until such time as he shows himself not to be worthy of it. More important than any of this is ensuring we are playing League 1 footbal...

Re: Karl Robinson

What's the evidence that this wasn't Tigers first choice all along - if anything the evidence suggests otherwise. We couldn't appoint him until he had left Charlton - hence the delay. Other names in the frame (or at least with the bookies) were available and if they had been first choice they could...

Re: Karl Robinson

”WOW” ...not. And maybe a better appointment for that. Let’s hope so. It took him 3 seasons to get MK promoted to the Championship, with a lot of cash thrown at it, and then he brought them straight back down again. And in the season after, he was sacked for a losing run in League 1. He’s done OKis...
