  1. Not saying I agree with it but most people are just fed up with our shambolic home record for 2020, regardless of the opposition. Every home game we lose this season feels disastrous, even if there are obvious reasons for optimism. At the end of the day, results determine how fans feel.
  2. Lets have it right, we should be winning all 3 against Luton wycombe and Rotherham and I think we will get more than 5 points on the basis of what I’ve seen from the team so far this season.
  3. I just don’t think he’s physically suited to a back 3 personally. He is good with the ball at his feet, but in a back 3 there is more responsibility on those to defend than a back 4.
  4. Only because Iorfa and Lees are both injured.
  5. He’s young and still think he’s got a lot to give. Brentford are one of the best teams in the league and was always going to struggle against a side like that (sort of begs the question why he started to be honest).
  6. Don’t get me wrong, Toney was a class above tonight but I think if we had Lees or Iorfa we would have handled him far far better. It’s probably easy to blame Dawson for Van aken was poor and his clearly out of his depth in this league, regardless of the block he made against Birmingham. Apart from Odubajo and Van Aken, I didn’t see much wrong. We gave absolutely everything I thought. If we keep playing like this we will pick up many points and I’ve genuinely seen enough character that will get us out of the trouble we are in. The Hillsborough curse continues, but
  7. Defence getting ripped to shreds. Not surprised really given we have 2 main defenders out plus ivan toney who is class. Can only blame monk/bannan for making Odubajo trying to mark Toney
  8. Hopefully the Brentford players won’t go near our players now we have moved into Tier 3
  9. Another update on this - plans are now being put in place by the PL big boys to create a European super league. Definitely not surprising. Should all keep a close eye on this as it will completely change the structure of the game in this country, for better or for worse. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.skysports.com/amp/football/news/11095/12109174/european-premier-league-liverpool-and-manchester-united-in-talks-for-fifa-backed-tournament
  10. Incredible that the manager is getting slated despite coming away with a valuable 3 points. Can understand people’s frustrations if we had lost or drawn, but we didn’t. In the last couple of games i think its fair to say the opposition have ridden their luck far more than us. The new additions look to be bedding in very well, but are the management getting praised for that? No, didn’t think so
  11. I agree about the deduction but don’t forget, most teams in the championship will never have their ‘ideal teams’ because not everyone has money to burn, especially this season with everything that’s happened and chairmen will be less inclined to put their hands in their pockets. I think most would agree that we’ve had a better transfer window than what was expected, especially given where we were a few weeks ago. There are no more excuses from here on in. Any less than 12 points by the end of the month and I think he’s a dead man walking.
  12. Not sure about you but I don’t think I can wait much longer...
  13. From that list, I can only see us dropping points against Brentford, Bournemouth and Birmingham
  14. The discontinuation of parachute payments would have been the only good thing to come out of project big picture
  15. Also didn’t realise that david Lucas was highly thought. He was brilliant when he was here but getting in the england squad albeit u20 suggests he probably could have gone onto bigger and better things than playing for us in League 1. I remember wallwork being a massive disappointment as he was held in really high regard at old trafford
  16. Completely agree. As per typical owlstalk, and I’m not ashamed to add myself to that list, that this will be completely forgotten by 5pm tomorrow should we not have a win. The sooner we get to 0 the better.
  17. Two players that have both played for Wednesday were in the lineup against Argentina. Can you name them? Very surprising names.
  18. Its a strange one because they’ve just signed Kazim Richards on loan yet loaned out Marriot.
