  1. I’ve thought this for the last few games; I don’t think lack of effort is the problem. The players look like they haven’t got a clue what their roles are or what is expected of them. And we don’t seem to have any idea how to create chances effectively and consistently. From the outside looking in, it’s as if the players are being told who’s going to be in the starting XI, then just asked to go out and play. We seem completely devoid of any kind of plan or identity.
  2. Honestly, I can’t see where our next goal is coming from, never mind our next point. No team, in any division, should be getting only 5 points from 10 matches. Things should never get this bad. We need fresh ideas.
  3. The players aren’t THIS bad. Monk isn’t even getting 50% of what he should out of them. Ok, it’s not his squad, but a good manager should be able to get the most out of what he has available. I think we all know that Monk is finished here. There’s no point in prolonging it.
  4. I remember when we won games under Megson, the opposition fans regularly used to moan that we didn’t play any better than them, we just bullied them into submission. What we wouldn’t give for a team like that now, rather than the weak-willed, half-hearted performances we’re currently serving up. I’m not suggesting Megson as a realistic candidate, but I do feel we need somebody of that ilk, a big character to instil a winning mentality, to give us a bit of a nasty edge and have opposition fans calling us bullies once again. What we have is a young manager who appears to be out of his depth and who some of the players don’t seem to respect.
  5. The problem is that the way we are going, even a modest points deduction could see us preparing for League 1 next season. You said it yourself - the culture of the club needs changing. Do you really think Monk is the man to do that, based on what you’ve seen so far? For me, it needs a bigger character to turn us around and instill a winning mentality; someone like Bruce or (dare I say it) Megson.
  6. It’s not just about the results, it’s the performances and the standard of the opposition that’s worrying about our recent slump. I don’t believe Monk has the slightest idea how to turn us around. We can’t continue as we are, simply limping towards the end of the season in the hope of offloading a number of out of contract players. Even a modest points deduction could see us starting next season in League 1. Something has to change, and quickly. There often comes a time in a manager’s career where he reaches a point of no return with the fanbase. From that point onwards, it’s usually only a matter of time before the manager is sacked or he resigns. It happened with Carlos and it happened with Jos. For Monk, I believe that he reached that point last night.
  7. Monk's current record: P: 28 W: 11 L: 9 D: 8 Win %: 39.29 Ok, that's still a better win percentage than Bruce. Until tomorrow night at least.
  8. Reach has an injury. So does Odubajo. Westwood, Hutchinson, Winnall and Rhodes are all available but have been left out.
  9. It’s Wellington, New Zealand but they play in the Australian A-League.
  10. I can’t quite agree with that. You can say that Winnall was a gamble that hasn’t paid off, but he’s exactly the sort of signing we should have been making more often, even though with hindsight it hasn’t really worked out for him. We signed Winnall in the January transfer window. He’d already scored 11 league goals for struggling Barnsley in the first half of that season and looked outstanding for them. He only cost us £500k and wasn’t on huge wages. Up and coming players performing well at Championship and League 1 level should have been our main targets. Just think, we could probably have taken a punt on 6 or 7 Winnall’s for the amount of money we wasted on Abdi. Even if only 2 or 3 had been successful, we’d have been in a far stronger position. Most on here agreed at the time that Winnall was a really astute signing. I’m certainly not going to give the club any grief over that one.
  11. The ref was desperate to send Luongo off. Showing his fellow Aussie the red card would demonstrate to everyone what a fair-minded, unbiased, all-round bonza bloke he is. Yeah, cheers for that Jarred.
  12. I can’t see this ending well for the EFL. Premier League 2 incoming...
  13. He finished 2nd behind Luke Ayling. Well done Tom. ● Luke Ayling (Leeds United) – 39% ● Tom Lees (Sheffield Wednesday) – 15% ● Jed Wallace (Millwall) – 13% ● Lee Tomlin (Cardiff City) – 12% ● Sam Johnstone (West Brom) – 11% ● Andre Ayew (Swansea City) – 10%
  14. If you exclude Bruce due to him only being at the club a few months, the manager of the decade is Stuart Gray by an absolute mile.
