  1. Seen replay, defender has right hand on Nuhui then left goes onto him at point Nuhui goes to ground. Maybe a touch soft, but not one that would have been overturned by VAR. A good win today, sometimes you have to scratch out 3 points, we have not always been good at that, starting to look better at it. Big shout out to Dawson, we have not missed Westwood (which is high praise), but him coming to edge of 18 yard box to take the lofted free kick late in the game was superb ‘keeping and shows his confidence.
  2. I did joke that the physio's will have covered more ground than some of the players tonight! To be honest though, on the whole, they all felt like genuine injuries (not Fulham-esq a game plan). Found it really weird that their Right back Edwards, who had an injury on his side took the long free kick right near the end - he aggravated it further and then had to go off - why not let someone else take it?
  3. Do agree that he has dropped below his (high) standards of past couple of years - remember he was immense in central midfield that season under Joss. However he is a proper footballer - in terms of his engine, the ground he covers and I do wonder if he is showing more discipline due to Harris being on the other side. The number of assists he has must be up there with anyone else at the club and he has an exceptional touch a high cross field ball, he can (usually) just pick out of the sky with an assuredness of a very good player. Even though he appears to mince tackles a bit, I am leaning towards that being a style, trying to nick it away to continue. Oh and he is Rarely (never?) injured. Put it this way, if he becomes a free agent at the end of the year, he will not have a problem finding a club.
  4. It was Knockhaert who he flicked it over as well - he looked well pissed off. You could see he was getting frustrated with the game and goading from crowd, which is why Parker took him off. Dont particularly like Knockhaert as a person - would love him to play for us though!
  5. We do now, but we have spent money and have a decent Championship squad, that would allow you to move players in/out. We don’t need that much to get close to playoffs either.... Plus I reckon DC would spend again if we were close in January....
  6. Pulis is the best option from the most experienced, least exposed manager status, suspect he would wee wee off DC with his demands and the fans with the football. Personally not for me but get why people may look from a promotion at all costs perspective.
  7. Reiterate what I said earlier, he changed his style at Derby ‘cos he knew he needed to. In the same way he knew he needed to play a tight ‘turn teams around’ style when having a tighter budget at Burton/Brum.... AND he knows the Championship and is available.....stick him on a year contract with big bonus to reach play-off/promotion and see what he can do......
  8. I actually also think Rowett would be a good appointment. He said when he got the Derby job he knew he had to play a different style of football as the fans demanded it. Did well at Burton and Brum with limited budget. Failed at Stoke but that tanker will take a while to turn. plus points, he knows championship, is a free agent, lives in area (presume) and wants job. He also loves Winnall! Low risk, love Bully, but don’t think he is a manger, if GR fails, look again at end of the year.
  9. Do agree that ref tends to book both in these instances, but thought ref got this spot on this occasion, Hector caught Moult after the clearance but Moult was then the aggressor, which led to Hector pushing him back. Ref saw all this and took right course of action. i actually thought in real time the sending off was harsh (my seat is face on with his studs), having seen the replay on the concourse at HT he got that one right too.
  10. cannot believe no one has mentioned that he is from the Clough camp. Owlstalk you have let me down!
  11. I did wonder that. To be clear, you are referring to the terrorist arrests, it was nothing to do with Hillsborough (as far as we know).
  12. If his philosophy was to be fresh for games or second half of season than the players may not have been allowed to train extra. (Not saying that was the case). Also didn't Bullen rubbish the fact we weren't for enough?
  13. Keys words in the article : insiders believe....
