  1. Was sat with the L**ds fans Thought it was a very assured and hard working display all around - shut the crowd up by just after the half hour mark. Have given it to big O for not looking at all out of place in only his second match.
  2. Hard working performance all round, can't fault anyone significantly. Gave it to Bazza for how coolly he put that penalty away (never a penalty, but we were due one of those). 39 points from 23 is a very good return. I think the gap to Leeds and Wet Bum is a real one, but if we can stay the pace until the 11th it could be all to play for then.
  3. I thought Dawson, Lees, Hutch, Reach, Harris and Fletcher had very good games, and nobody apart from Odubajo had a bad one. We're not sexy at the moment, but we're close to being a reliable get the job done outfit. Palmer will be an upgrade on Odubajo when he returns.
  4. Voted for Bannan. Iorfa and Fletcher also excellent. Who says we can only beat the bottom 7? We've beaten the bottom 8 now.
  5. Two mediocre teams cancelling each other out. Playoffs feel like a stretch at the moment - hope all the financial issues don't stop us doing some loan business in January. We need a goalscorer.
  6. 538 is trying to extrapolate from in-play stats, as opposed to past league patterns. I don't think having us as the 10th best team in the league with a 21% chance of the playoffs is unduly harsh. We'll need to slightly overperform to make it, I think. But it's certainly not impossible.
  7. ha, I was wondering the other day if I could dig up the old version of this thread. Thanks for this.
  8. Bowen's a £10m player, we can't afford him.
  9. Excellent all round showing. No complaints with anyone but voted for Dave.
  10. Check it out, we're one point behind the world's greatest current team Leeds United.
  11. Took him a lot of words to write "gerrit forud ffs"
  12. This. I am a big fan of Adam Reach but in our squad he's too often used as a utility man rather than to his strengths. We need to raise money, and it would be a good move for him. As close to £15M as possible, a sell-on clause, and I'd be happy.
  13. Good performance all round. Went for Bannan as much for his tracking back and disruption of their momentum as for his creation.
  14. If Monk doesn't want Bullen as part of the 1st team operation, I expect Bullen to be offered a return to the academy. Maybe he'll feel the time is right now for him to start looking for a manager job somewhere.
  15. Ross Barkley may not have pulled up any trees for us, or yet fulfilled his potential, but it's still amusing to see Owlstalkers saying he shouldn't displace Rhys McCabe from the first XI.
  16. I'm basically agnostic on the Bully question, but I do enjoy the line of reasoning that goes: we need an experienced manager to immplement the tactics that are obvious to me, a dork on the internets
  17. Somewhere where their cousin didn't die at the place they'd have to turn up for work every day, possibly.
  18. They restricted us to poor quality chances, though. Lots of speculative shooting - as xG vs attempts shows. We weren't _really_ creating. In general, we are neither particularly profligate nor clinical this year (so we aren't where we are by fluke, although I agree that on paper we have had an easyish set of fixtures to start with) You can't put that all on the manager, though. Better players than ours can struggle to get past a team that's parked the bus like Milwall did. Just one of those days.
  19. I reckon, if I was caretaker manager, and had said I wanted the permanent job, and had won 3 out of 4, and the owner chose this moment to replace me, I'd be within my rights to be a bit cheesed off. In fact, I'd probably walk.
  20. Plenty on here said we flattered to deceive all the way to 2 play-off finishes a few years ago - I'd take that bargain again.
