  1. Hope to god I'm wrong but looking like two league one sides in waiting at Pride Park. Aside from the goal we've done nothing, Derby looked more likely to score 1st half. Rotherham having a flyer at Cardiff by all accounts, couldn't begrudge them staying up given they've done us home and away, and with ten men at Hillsborough. Let's hope Cardiff can do us a favour, still need to improve second half to make sure we do our bit.
  2. Murphy also improved a lot last season, though Newcastle seem to be the primary beneficiaries of that.
  3. Bit difficult to actually coach any of the players atm given two games per week. The Friday before a match is largely match prep in training for the upcoming game, the same during the day for a midweek evening game. The day after each match the players would usually get off to rest/do rehab sessions. That gives you just two days to actually spend on coaching and working one-on-one with players, can't really do a lot with that. Even less coaching time available if you consider higher occurrence of injuries/illness this past year too. Monk improved Fox I'd say last season, one of the few things he did well in.
  4. Thanks, seems it's on Bein 2 & 3 for some reason?
  5. I have no video available today and audio only. why is that? Not that I'm complaining too much mind, might be a blessing in disguise...
  6. Tbh I think I'm past the point of caring now, 4th manager of the season. Seems like a decent bloke, got a very raw deal at WBA. Good luck to him, probably just keeping the seat warm for the next poor victim incumbent. If he's still here next season I might take an interest, assuming we still have any players/a club left by then.
  7. Can't help but feel a bit sorry for FDB...signed by Monk who was turfed out after a few months, not really had a kick since he signed. Finally gets a few minutes recently and then literally kicked out of the game. Shame, Weds career not really started yet has it?
  8. For me the most amazing stat there is the thought that Izzy Brown has made more than 15 appearances for us and supposedly done something useful...nearly two 'key passes' per game? Really? I'd be surprised if he touched the ball twice per game tbh
  9. A strange month what with the Covid break and hard to pick a stand out, but Paterson edged it for me. Keep it up, we're gonna need it!
  10. Did anyone else clock the triple substitution he made in the 78th minute? <-- Palmer, Urhoghide & Joey --> Harris, Luongo & Dunkley Two defenders and a holding MF off, attack minded player in Harris and less negative MF in Luongo on. Effectively then this would be known as 'going for it', and he was right as Bournemouth were there for the taking. And it paid off, Harris' cross for the winner! Whisper this quietly but I think NT is doing a good job...
  11. As usual with our fanbase as soon as Reach goes a game or two without scoring/assisting it's 'oh Reach does nothing, what a waste of space'. Without repeating all of the (accurate) statements above about him being played out of position, I still thought he put a shift in last night and was actually very effective at cutting out a lot of passes through the middle of the pitch. He rolled up his sleeves and did a job for the team, and still gets moaned about because he's not spaffed one in the top corner from 30 yards. There's a set of fans who Reach will never win over but face facts, he's actually one of our best players when allowed to play in a position where he's most effective.
  12. More like Herbie Kane and Abel Xavier off recent form!
  13. I don't understand why we don't just send him back. He's played a grand total of 390 minutes under three different managers, none of whom seemed to rate him. Assuming we're paying at least part of his wages, what's the point of him being here other than to warm the bench? Unless we were/are just so desperate for players that when we made the loan agreement we didn't include a termination clause, or we genuinely don't think we could get anyone better (transfer embargo?)
  14. Just tried to access video at half time, only an audio option for me?
