  1. Ref blows on 94 minutes

    There wouldn't have been 6 minutes added time if the Hull player who went off injured walked behind the goal and up the sideline, classic time wasting tactics.
  2. So basically we started with plan A, it wasn't working so switched to plan B which did work. Here's an idea, why not start with plan B.
  3. Stupid Sky Commentary

    What got me going last night with the sky commentary was the way they went on about the Loovens tackle, yes it was bad but the way they went on and showed endless replays really peed me off. I was thinking that it was a good job that the ref wasn't miked up to the commentators otherwise he would have been off. Then when Mcgoldrick (sic) went off at half time due to a deep gash to the groin, again they went on about the tackle. Amazing how he managed a full half and showed no discomfort from "the deep gash". If the "gash" was so bad where was the blood on the shorts in the first half?
  4. That's the thing with us, when we are in front we really need to go for it. Winning with a one goal margin (1-0, 2-1 etc) really is not a time to sit back and try to see the game out cause nine times out of ten we always seem to concede and end up drawing. Even with a couple of goals advantage I still don't feel comfortable

    The thing with Westwood yesterday was that he couldn't speed things up. If you noticed whenever Bristol got a corner or long throw (which was as good as a corner )they pushed all but one man up which made us pull everyone back, most of the time Westwood won the ball so therefore couldn't distribute it quickly cause everyone was back defending. I've always wanted us to leave at least two players on the halfway line whenever the opposition have a corner, free kick, long throw etc just so it would give Westwood someone to launch the ball to quickly. Can't remember the opposition but I do remember Westy doing this once where after the opposition attack broke down he launched it upfield, it bounced once or twice and Hooper leathered the ball into the net (Leppings Lane end ) brilliant goal. Very rarely do we get to see this now.
  6. Normal service resumed

    Just watch, we'll go and absolutely batter Ipswich on Wednesday

    Should be above the teams above us and would be had we not drawn the games we have, just look at the pigs, 17 games and no draws???????
  8. What annoys me is that in all of his after match interviews he's happy to settle for a playoff place whereas we should be busting a gut to get an auto (sorry but I think we might not even make the playoffs under CC). This has got to be one of the poorest Championships for a while.
  9. This. Also I think that you would find Lee offering a bit more width if he played there. Wallace tends to drift inside too much for me.
  10. Just watched them, absolutely brilliant, laughed so much. Whoever did them I hope we see more.
  11. Tuesday night

    I'm a season ticket holder and definitely going as said earlier, miss all the trick or treaters.
  12. Jack Hunt at the final whistle

    What pees me off most of the time is when Wallace drifts inside to centre midfield and we lose any width that we may have had and it just leaves Hunt to play as both defender and winger. Thought Hunt had a great game today and the criticism of him is a bit ott.
  13. Bottling the big games

    Been saying it for a while now, we are just too static, point being today when Wallace had the ball in the first half on the halfway line, there was no movement in front of him so had to pass it back to Lees and then he (Wallace ) just promptly stood there with his hands on hips instead of moving in to space. Football is really a simple game when you pass and move but we just seem to pass and then stand there admiring it. The pigs did it to us today, Brentford did it the other week. We have got to try and get back to the tactics we played in the first season under Carlos.
  14. Colin Murray is a great presenter and C5'ves football show is much better with him presenting it, he was a great person to front Match Of The Day 2 but got took off it because people wrote in to the BBC complaining about not being able to understand his accent, bizzare.
  15. Brilliant thread, really informative and really enjoyed finding out a few more facts about us.
  16. Bannan and Jones

    How about trying Hutch at right back, I believe he played there for Chelsea as well as center back (could be wrong though)
  17. Get Carlos out of this club

    No, he was up and down the touchline second half, defending well and attacking brilliantly, their right back just didn't have a clue second half that's why Gibson came on and moved out right to give the defender support (but even that didn't work) .Agree that Bannan was brilliant but the majority of our attacks second half came down the left through Reach.
  18. Give pudil some credit

    Think it's the only thing that let's down his game. If I were CC I'd get him on the training ground and really work on it.
  19. Adam Reach

    Think it was because we were kicking downhill. Seriously though I thought he was really good tonight, thought Bannan had a really good game also along with Pudil.
  20. Get Carlos out of this club

    Just got back from the match, thought we were very unlucky not to win. Brilliant goal from Jones, Rhodes unlucky with a header as was Hooper with the shot that hit the bar and as for the goalmouth scramble, how on earth it didn't go in I don't know. Sunderland were hanging on in the second half which resulted in them taking off strikers and putting on midfielders. We were by far the best team and if we play like that all the time then I really believe that autos could be a posibility. Pudil had a really good game at centre half but for me mom was Reach.
  21. Next season kit

    If the blue shirt is the new shirt then it has to be with white shorts and either plain white or plain blue socks. Black shorts just wouldn't look right .
  22. 2 CENTRE BACKS?!

    When at Chelsea, Hutchinson was being touted as the next John Terry so I would imagine he may be one of the centerbacks next season. I was always impressed when he played there last season, he read the game superbly AND hardly ever got booked. He's confident on the ball and can bring it out to play others in. If he isn't going to be used in this position and only as backup then a real beast of a defender should be signed (I quite like Harlee Dean at Brentford, don't think he would be too expensive)
  23. will carlos change his style.......

    First season 6th, second season 4th, third season ? Do I see a patern emerging here, hope so.
  24. First Game of the Season

    Aways remember about 15 years ago I was told (by a Blunt) that I was a "fan" not a "supporter" Of The Owls due to the fact that I couldn't afford to go to matches (low wage etc) and therefore by not paying to go I didn't support them. Took great delight about 3 years later when I told him I now support the team by waving my season ticket in his face (better job, better pay) and have been supporting them ever since. Always thought he was a bit of a gobshite.
  25. Our Year

    Picked my son up from work earlier tonight and he hit the nail right on the head, last season Hull were not that good a side, they ground out results and mostly won by the odd goal. He said that Carlos learnt from the playoff final and we have played a bit like Hull this season and ground out a lot of results, BELIEVE, this is our year.
