Re: Mousinho

I really want him to be good as he seems such an intelligent, nice and impressive character. He’s been bad but then so have so many of them. What’s happened to Ruffels for example? Playing in such a poor and unfit team , possibly with conflicting or unclear instructions, has destroyed their confiden...

Re: Where are they now?

Alex Fisher back in England http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42835023 No goals in 19 appearances! Fantastic quote by the Yeovil manager - presumably Fisher is paying Yeovil appearance money? Is he actually any good? He flits about between teams, never doing a whole lot from what it seems. Still,...

that back pass

So imagine Tiendalli didn't make that back pass but instead hoofed it forward rather than skewing it back. We would have won the match and Pep would surely not have been sacked. Almost up there with Brock's. I remember in Appleton's first season we'd lost shambolically at home to Southend after lead...

Re: Pep Booted

I don't know about losing the dressing room, but I think he'd lost the crowd and was starting to cost the club money in attendances. Saturday reminded me of Wilder's last game - low crowd, odd atmosphere, a flat feeling interspersed with anger. On footballing grounds the decision is harsh but there ...

Re: When do we start panicking?

I am coming round to the view that even with all the injuries and other problems he’s not doing a very good job - he doesn’t seem to know his best team or even what he’s trying to do. But still the abuse he’s getting is disproportionate. Brexit angle, anyone? Cultured, sophisticated Euro manager dri...

Re: When do we start panicking?

But apart from that it was ok?

Agree that there is a bad atmosphere in general - no flags , little vocal support, everyone leaving after their second, that weird shushing

Re: When do we start panicking?

I’m sure we will get more good results this season but there is something so weak and unconvincing about us. As you say, I hope the new lads will be the answer

Re: When do we start panicking?

Certainly glad I didn't bet on our beating Bury at home. Blimey, we aren't much good are we. Thank goodness for that points cushion. Even so, it would be good if someone could point me to where we get the 12 points. If we do get drawn into a relegation battle, I don't fancy our chances. We have not...

Re: No more Payne

Blackburn, Wigan, Charlton etc are almost a mini-league of their own in terms of resources, though. We'll be fine - we're better off finding our own players and developing them for a profit.

Re: Blackpool - a few questions

Eastwood was clearly MoTM and we were fairly fortunate to come in level at half time but I thought that if we could last till then we had a chance of a late goal. We’re clearly not very good but are very much a patched up side with a lot of injuries. I was impressed by how hard the players worked an...

Re: When do we start panicking?

Oh well panic over! Well maybe not, but a lot better today. Good old 442 rather than trying to be Barcelona and walk it into the net. Thought the midfield was excellent and Gino is a footballer after all. My theory is that he wasn’t injured at all but was sent to football school to brush up on the b...

Re: When do we start panicking?

I’m getting anxious, and the performance against Wigan could be regarded as warranting the sack on its own. To be fair, he lost three of his best players in the same week, he joined too late to plan for pre-season, several of his signings have been injured, and at times we’ve looked very stylish. Bu...

Re: Where are they now?

Yes good enough for Conference but very possibly didn’t want to stay in Britain. Surprised he didn’t go to a higher level but he may be studying or starting a business
