  1. Ha! david Graham was a total disaster. most of us championship manager players thought he would get 30 in his first season.
  2. Yeah that cheeses me off a bit, however striking similarities with us only at a higher level: Scattered gun transfer approach Big wages High average age of recruits No long term version Buy players based on reputation rather than plugging gaps. Etc etc
  3. I feel ok, its been a tough year personally and to have a play off place to battle for has been a good distraction. The weird thing about the Sunderland game was I never really got going with my emotions as they held us at arms length for long periods. It must've been an awful game for the neutral but I only felt the buzz for around 2 mins during and after we scored. The injury time goal didn't hurt as I didn't feel we deserved extra time. Looking forward to next season but if we don't battle for automatics then it will feel pretty rubbish as I don't want us to be there for 4 or 5 years or longer like Sunderland and the blunts.
  4. Willing to give him half a season, if the first half of next season matches the first half of this season then he's a goner so yeah give him 15 games with a full pre season and revamped squad in the right areas. He does know how to attract players so I expect a stronger squad next season. No excuses, we need to be tracking at 2 points a game next year, if we drop out of the auto race at any point then he should go.
  5. On the plus side, windass does look like he could make something happen, takes up good positions and could be threatening if he gets them one on one
  6. We just don't look like we are going to score. I hope we rattle them second half.
  7. Time for the burns baseball speech: All right, you ragtag bunch of misfits! You hate me, and I hate you even more. But without my beloved ringers, you're all I've got. So I want you to remember some inspiring words that someone else might have told you over the course of your lives, and go out there and win!
  8. So judgement day is here and thanks to Lord S for the second to last time this season. Be brave Fight for everything Be together on the pitch Be together in the stands Have belief for the whole game We can do this!!!!!!
  9. Player angry at being dropped for big game shocker. He should be fuming, shows he cares. Absolute non story
  10. As most have said, hunt for Palmer is a must. Don't over think it DM just because Palmer played well on Friday I would love to see Windass start but he looked so rusty on Friday, im not sure DM will risk it. I'm not a big fan of berahino but he deserves the nod as there's no way I want to see Patterson starting. I wouldn't change the middle 3, I feel if byers plays well then we've got a good chance. They'll look to nullify bannan again meaning him and luongo should get plenty of the ball especially as we will be looking to dominate and play higher up the pitch.
  11. This is basically how I feel. I am really worried that we won't make enough chances based on the first leg and how Sunderland will set up on Monday. To be frank even if we do create chances they basically have to fall to Gregory. I'm still clinging to the hope that we make something happen from long range or from set pieces but i expect Monday will be another low scoring game.
  12. Great post. If everybody in the ground gets behind them it can make a difference. If weve been poor by full time then that's the time to voice some negativity but not before.
  13. Yeah its an important point to make. People keep referencing the 0-0 at hudds but that was made worse by a poor performance at home to give us a 1-1 in 90 mins. If we do the same again we are out. We have to play well and win....simple
  14. You know what, normally I would say no we don't but an early goal would rock them and get our tails up. I think the first 30 mins of Monday may well decide the tie
