  1. Why even mention some fans dont agree ? Just praise the fella , everyone’s got opinions and no one can say he didn’t start off slowly for us , He was much steadier tonight , feel there’s so much more to come from him , I always have , he needs a run in the side get his confidence up . His crosses were excellent .

    Yes, but stated previously we are as thick in the defensive free kicks as we are in offence.


    When refs are not great, make sure you get the foul. Harris just carried on and lost the battle. 


    Is it great to see? No, is it professional and beneficial to the team yes 



    I never want to see anything other than sportsmanship hate cheating of any description. It isn’t right in any form

    And yet we're even the exception to that rule. 


    Monk and the club need to come up with a solution to this. It's probably worth 15 points over the season if it continues. 

    We just need to stop giving away silly needless free kicks in and around our penalty area .

    The ref was shocking! Totally inept. 


    The non booking in the first half for their full back was a joke, the free kick for their goal was tough on us but looked clumsy-the actual goal was a shambles of officiating (why more than Dawson didn’t go mad I’ll never know)


    but the thread moved on to suggest the entire refereeing world is against us, which is down right ridiculous 

    I know I agree with that I’m just focussing on last nights game

    Didn’t the ref’s inept performance help us with not giving the penalty?

    What’s your opinion of the foul on Harris where he was about to charge into the penalty area but got taken out . Yellow card for me , you ?

    My point is this childish rant of all the referees are against us is ridiculous - any dropped points are more to do with ourselves than any outside influences 


    I’m not sure what you mean by “fair worse” 



    It’s difficult enough as history shows to come away from places like Cardiff with a win especially with the ref favouring  the home side . If we had maintained our form in the second half we would be top of the league now but surely you could see we lost out to more bad decisions than they did . I meant to put far worse , sorry .

    Not really, I mean things like putting your hands on a players back when they are going nowhere, they go down - foul given- brainless on our part 


    Little nudges, niggles, not a foul in years gone by, it is now and most of the time it’s lazy or brainless on our part. 


    To think the refs are totally against us is a bit childish in my opinion. Last night for example they should have had a blatant penalty!


    I would say however the refs have been poor in the yellow cards for and against us - the consistency is almost non existent (that goes for most games I watch though just not Wednesday)

    I agree but I don’t want to see any players buying free kicks really , Wasn’t Harris pulled back in the box also but he didn’t drop like a sack of spuds !!

    Tonight was a little misleading in the fact that the ref awarded so many non fouls or soft fouls against us. I think most of us a happy to see us putting a foot in and toughening up in an area we've been weak in over previous seasons.


    All that said, we need to eliminate the silly, non-sensical ones, like the push in the back from Murphy for instance. 

    And the full backs getting caught out , more focus required.

    Not worth risking it really.


    Tomlin would have roundhouse kicked him in the face decapitating him and sending his hesd scudding across the turf as his limp, lifeless body fell to the turf.


    The Ref would have given them a penalty leading to them nicking all 3 points 


    And The FA would have banned Fernando for a millennium even though he was dead. 



    You kid not !!!

    absolutely - no one saw it, and I really hope if the ref had, he would have sent him off. He still played us - the foul he 'got' from Murphy's 'nudge' was an example.

    Yes but let’s be right here that was more the ref giving them everything than him being clever

    Complete injustice again. 

    We were excellent tonight and if it weren't for the wanknker ref that would have been an easy win. 




    I agree we were excellent first half and should have been out of sight . Being honest we didn’t do enough in the second half and sat on our lead as per , we need to learn how to go on and get the second and third even Middlesborough comes to mind . Think Monk is doing a good job and feel we are in good hands.

    it was inevitable he was going to change the game - did what a lot of old pros do to us, simply do us over as we're a bit slow and soft.

    An old pro that took a swipe at Borner yeah that was clever and old headed wasn’t it , he’s a first class swear word

    Would love to do a comparison to the average wages in the 70s and 80 etc and compare them to ticket prices. I would hazard a guess that it would be pretty similar now.

    As for not budging past 20k, when we have reduced tickets prices the attendance does not go up by much. Think the thing is people have other things to do, or go to as well so just use cost as an excuse for not attending.

    As I said why not get a ST, if you cant pay up front. Sure there must be away to pay monthly either by the club or on a card.



    For me personally a season ticket isn’t really an option , I work every other weekend . When I retire in 5 years I will have one until I’m too old to travel . This is the first time in all my years as a supporter that I have struggled to be able to not only afford a ticket but to also justify paying what I consider rip off prices .
