  1. Stadium MK supposedly holds 30,000 across both tiers, the top tier was shut so just the bottom then which at capacity must hold 15-20,000. If we brought ~6.5k then that photo should be about ~6.5k people too (taken at KO btw)...really?! Sounds like a load of to me! Creative accounting at best (season ticket holders who didn't turn up?)
  2. Storey certainly did, he was fantastic and should be a high priority to get him signed up for next season if possible. Dean looked good when he played, but only managed a handful of games in the end. We still shipped goals from set pieces towards the end of the season, Fleetwood and Bolton away and Wimbledon and Accrington at home spring to mind. Needs to be sorted for next time out.
  3. It'd be quite good if the buggers could keep 'em out the other end first! Our defensive record from set pieces has been poor all season, if only we had a manager who knew something about defending...
  4. Yep last season hurt way more, it was just watching that slow car crash that was our season and knowing the inevitable was coming. Then a faint glimmer of hope towards the end, 25 mins or so from safety then it all went wrong. Before the season ended I was mentally prepared for another year in league one. Unlike when we lost the championship POF to Hull, I don't feel this was a golden chance that has slipped away. If we keep the core of this squad together then automatic promotion is a real possibility next time out, or even then we'll go up the year after. No worries about becoming another Sunderland or Ipswich. Besides if we'd gone up it probably would've been a really hard gruelling season in the championship. We're not out of the woods yet in terms of FFP and couldn't spend much (if anything) on transfers. Would've been wheeling and dealing for frees and loans which is a lot more effective in league one. Keep the rebuild going, add some youngsters, build a solid base to survive and push on once we go up. WTID
  5. Not sure how Gregory has run away with MoTM TBH. OK so he executed what could've been a crucial moment in the game for us, but other than that we hardly got him into the game. Thought Luongo was one of the few players that played to their best last night, he was everywhere winning the ball back pressing. He even led a few charges forward at times, got a grip of the midfield a lot better than on Friday. Just really hope that wasn't his last game for us, we have arguably the best midfield three in the division and if we kept them together then automatic promotion is a real possibility next season.
  6. Is this a typo? Otherwise hard to describe a pairing that've played together no more than eight times as 'proven'
  7. Tbh I'd like to see us start with a back four as we looked much more effective last night once we changed it after an hour. It doesn't set you up to attack if you have three CBs against a low block, I've been screaming for DM to change the system when the occasion demands it since Gillingham away. I doubt he will do that however, so it's a question of how many changes to add some fresh legs. Obvious changes are: - Hunt or NML at RWB with either Palmer or a CB dropping out - Fiz in for Byers just to add some fresh legs to the centre of the park Wouldn't start with Windass, looks way off the pace. It's not a Steve Maclean type situation where he's just missed a few games, he's barely played all year and is an impact sub at best IMHO.
  8. On balance of how the game went, 1-0 was actually a pretty decent result for us as it could've (and perhaps should've) been a wider margin at the end of the night. Monday night will be a totally different game. As not the most wildly optimistic of Wednesday fans I'd be confident we'll (a) play better and (b) beat them, whether that'll be enough to get us through is another matter. In any case I won't be crestfallen even if they manage to edge us out, if we keep the core of this squad together in the summer it's good enough to go up automatic next season anyway.
  9. Johnson has been great most of the season but hasn't been great for a few games tbh. Probably needs a rest having played so many games, but as the only natural left footed option at WB he's hard to drop. NML was effective tonight because he didn't have to do much defending as he's not great at that. Great as a winger, but not a natural WB which is why Johnson keeps getting in the side when not at his best.
  10. Why did he take the pen? Cos brilliant as Bazza is, he's not great at pens. Especially under pressure. Why did we take him off? Was a bit of a gamble at 1-0, at the time would've rather we left him on for 10 mins and tried to get a second. Probably needed a rest ahead of Saturday, Wycombe a much bigger test. At the end of the day we got the three points, in Darren we trust...
  11. Gutted, I live down south and was looking forward to stopping off for the game in MK on the way up then getting the home game on the Monday. Can see why they'd select the MK Dons game for coverage but this is properly sh!t news. Are that many armchair fans really going to be seduced into watching league one football on a Saturday night?
  12. Yep DM clearly out of his depth, two subs, two goals. Do me a favour, moaners STFU and back the boys. UTO!!!
  13. And the award for over reaction of the season goes to...
  14. Looking at our bench, we may as well cancel Berahino's contract if he can't get into the team ahead of Kamberi or Sow. Is that the lesser spotted Gibson I spy as well?
  15. Idk it would help if Iorfa or Dunkley were available but the corner for the first goal shouldn't have been a corner. No complaints about any of the goals today, they just had that cutting edge we didn't.
  16. Patto is really useful in the Covid era as a player who can play in a number of positions but doesn't really excel in any. He puts himself about but lacka the cutting edge of a Windass or a Gregory. Don't be too hard on him, he gives it all on the pitch and is just the victim of not nailing down an obvious position.
  17. Bit of a reality check today, there's a reason why Rovram are top of the league and we're scrapping it out for a play off spot. We played well but lacked a cutting edge up front, they dug in and ground out a result and that's a hallmark of teams that get automatic promotion. With Windass and/or Gregory might've been a different outcome. Couldn't argue with ******** Wood being Motm, good solid performance from them. We go again on Wednesday. UTO!
  18. Well every one of our matches on Sky this season has finished 0-0. Surely not four in a row?!
  19. Yeah tbf I was critical of the state of Burton's pitch last week but ours is just as bad. Maybe all pitches in league one are sh!t this time of year (barring those in the tropical climbs of the SW it seems)
  20. Was surprised we took Kamberi off rather than Windass as I thought we were easing him back in gently. Didn't he play 90 mins on Sat?
  21. Thought he was crap on Saturday as well as tonight. Now he's got an assist! Love you Bazza, even when you have a bad game you're still a cut above this division!
