  1. Well I think that the squad, without the likes of Windass, Iorfa, Luongo and the other first choice players that we have missing, is overachieving. We have some players getting a game who, put simply, are not, and should not be, professional footballers. We have some who were once good professional footballers who should be retired. Look, a case in point:- When Mendes-Laing came on on Sunday he looked quality for the first 5 or ten minutes then drifted out of the game and became a passenger. We will not achieve anything filling out the team with this type of player. The young players with real potential deserve to have good and fit senior pros to work with but without our best players there is little chance of progress. Mark Beevers is unlikley to be the answer.
  2. No picture for this round. I watched it and our team was devoid of any idea and frankly there should be no pictures of this dross game devoid of football.
  3. It would be magic if we can get wins from the next four games to put us right back on track. With Luongo back for the Sunderland game, and hopefully a more recognised and firmer defence available, coupled with the attacking flair of Windass, we could start making real progress.
  4. I don't think we are allowed 14 players on the pitch though.
  5. We were still woeful at corners and set plays. The fact that Sunderland didn't score was a mixture of pure luck and Sunderland's errors. If Sunderland had scored from their first corner which we cleared through good fortune I don't think we would have won. For some reason our good start ended after 20 minutes and we went back into our old ways, it was after getting away with that corner that our pressing game returned. From that point on we were as good as we have been this season. Even so we still looked dodgy at defending set plays.
  6. When teams get good they always play with a bit of swank about them.
  7. Is this a myth put about by opposition managers to ensure that he always plays. Our opponents always seem to know how to nullify him. (Said with Tongue firmly in Cheek)
  8. Its about keeping the concentration up and people doing their jobs. too many sleepy Joes at times,
  9. Not anti- Bannan per se. Its just that we seem to lack the urgency at times, It's that element that a strong captain can influence.
  10. All too often we are conceding goals following stoppages and set pieces. The lack of concentration of our players at these times it outrageously poor. This is the captain's responsibility to sort out. We need a proper organiser and strong respected voice. Is BB that man? I have my doubts.
  11. If you were Steve Bruce would you even be considering going to work again? I know I wouldn't.
