  1. Don’t think you can blame the manager today, leave that until the Swansea game at least. Windass was brainless, that was end of game. How can one team collect as many shithouses as Preston. An obnoxious , horrible manager and players to match.
  2. The trouble is Paterson can’t do anything about it. Fisher is just looking for Paterson to react ( no not in that way) so he can fall down and try and get the ref involved.
  3. The real question is why did he do such a stupid challenge
  4. My hope is that he gets us to play with some intelligence. Fed up with watching players make poor decisions, shoot when they should pass and vice versa, give stupid fouls away, pick up ridiculous cards, get on the wrong side of the ref from the start and basically playing like school kids. Be strong, be competitive but use your brain , stop being naive.
  5. You should get an email confirming your purchase but you don’t get a discount code. You pay a tenner for away games and if you have completed your purchase properly then you will be able to log on and get access tomorrow
  6. Presumably Palmer and Paterson will have to pass a COVID test prior to rejoining the team . Especially now a Serbian player has tested positive
  7. Was it only one more, thought he got 3 or 4. The problem was Fletcher and Rhodes played at Forest and it worked. Not just because Fletcher played but that was a big part of it. A few games later we played at Stoke with Rhodes and Atty up front. Probably the slowest front two ever to start a league game and both were ineffective at best. Rhodes played like he knew there was nothing good going to happen in the game and that was it . Who knows what could have happened if Fletcher had stayed fit.
  8. Watch it on your own mate and you won’t know there’s a lag.
  9. Unfortunately I am old enough to remember him playing at Plymouth where I thought he was a cultured midfielder, in today’s terms. Strange but when he played for the pigs I thought he was a clogger.
  10. Can I just say. Moses playing full back at Preston didn’t go well last time and I suspect it wouldn’t this time either. They are diving barstewards and he gives them every opportunity to do it.
  11. I suggest you watch the tap in again and watch the movement by Rhodes to get in front of the defender. Might only be 2 or 3 yard but it shows how he scores his goals. Anticipation , movement and gets a toe end to it. Might look scruffy but none of our other strikers would have scored it.
  12. Well it might have made a difference against QPR where we conceded a late equaliser with only 10 men on the pitch because we had used all our 3 subs
  13. Get the ball into the box and Rhodes is our best chance of a goal. However he obviously won’t score them all so if you are only getting a few balls in there like we have been he is still going to struggle. Also he needs to build some sort of relationship with the guy putting the crosses in. If we had played Reach left hand side and Rhodes up front every game this season we would have scored more goals than we have
  14. Somebody give Pulis a ring. Two messages Don’t let Moses into our penalty box Make sure he sticks one on Darnell Fisher as he goes past
  15. Had some horrible trips there in recent times, awful performances, poor results. Can’t see that changing Saturday
  16. The biggest issue for Pulis will be whether he can cope with the way the club is run. The lack of structure and DC wanting to control everything has a massive knock on to the manager and what he is trying to do. It will be very interesting to see what happens after Pulis has tried to work with for a few months. Yesterday it seems from his conference that he couldn’t even find out if we could get Westwood eligible to play on Saturday.
  17. Bannan is only going to play one position for us. That’s in the centre, mainly deep lying. Play him wide, or play him further forward in this team and he just won’t get on the ball. If we don’t get him on the ball might as well be sat in the stands. eg play him further forward against Preston on Saturday and he will have to win a physical battle with Pearson, not going to happen. Carlos played him wide , but that was in a slow, possession based team to try and control the game. When he upped the tempo for the last half an hour he would drop Bannan into the middle, bring an extra striker on and press high so that we were playing in the opposition half. The thing we have to do is the whole team plays further forward so that Bannan is playing in the opposition half and not on the edge of our box.
  18. Have to say I have been very impressed with Tierney on the left of a back 3 for Arsenal. He’s not big but very quick. As a full back he would certainly be close to Chilwell. Looks top class to me.
  19. We just didn’t get enough players into the box last night. It didn’t help that Kane kept dropping deeper and deeper. He does with Spurs now but has the pace of Son, Moura and now Bale running ahead of him. We didn’t have any of that . Presumably our front 3 would be Sterling Kane Rashford when available which has got goals and pace in it.
  20. I think the ref can countersign the signing on form in the changing room. We just need to think of a name to play him under
  21. And to add, Preston away is an ideal fixture for him to see the problem
