  1. Totally agree. Always have. Our chairman is doing all he can to get the club back to the big time. With hindsight he made some mistakes. But for the right reasons. I hate reading people slating him. He deserves respect. If we are in this together then it starts at the very top. Just because he has made a decision that you may not agree with does not mean that he is not doing his best for our club
  2. Nice guy and a rare type of football player who has never stopped putting himself in the line of fire even when he was getting stick from supporters. Scored some great goals and important goals. Never moaned about being subbed or dropped. I would have kept him for another season. He is a handful that some defenders find difficult to stop. Spent hardly any time injured. We never had the players to play the game style that would have suited atdhe better. If he was born 20 years earlier he could have been massive. Reminded me of kerry Dixon. If you think I exaggerating remember Brian deane got a England cap in those days
  3. Omg reach can't tackle. He is not and never been a left back. It is so obvious reach is a poor tackler and has poor defensive skills. Penny is the best man and can only improve with experience. Reach best position is between the forwards and midfield with a free reign to give the opposition someone to mark and hopefully give our wing backs a little support and space for them.
  4. He should try winning a few games. All the rest is bull. He just clutching at straws to try and hold on to his job. The results since Xmas have been shocking to say the least. Can't think of anything positive he has done for us. The team is spineless. Disorganised. Unmotivated. Boring and never looks like winning even when we have been in front (rarely). We need a much better manager if we ever going to get out of this division. With monk I expect more likely to be relegation than promotion.
  5. Decent is nothing special. Surely you not defending the manager. Your point makes no sense as he has had enough time to get a better squad anyway
  6. This is half the problem. Wimbledon had a squad worth nothing and won the fa Cup with it. Regardless of value performance is down to motivation and tactics. We could have best players in world. We would still lose with monk
  7. Anyone could get more points from these players than monk has. What's the value got to do with the crap management
  8. Three at the back is the managers decision. He not been forced into it. Everyone else can see its not working. The managers excuses are as bad as his formations and tactical knowledge. Time to go
  9. Surely this is his coffin nailed shut. Concentration in last 10 minutes. The first 20 we should have been 3 down. Monk was not concentrating with that answer. His formation and tactics from the start was rubbish. Then to stay with it after 3 chances Preston wasted is unbelievable. Then to be lucky to be 1 up he still carries on with the same. We never looked like winning. I was optimistic hoping for a draw even at 1 up. The squad is a decent squad. A good manager could get more out of lesser players. Anyone who saying it's not monks fault is fooling themselves.
  10. We may have not got the best players in the championship. What we have got is a lot better than what monk is getting from them. Will the people saying its not monks fault explain how many points are won in the board room. Does the chairman stick with the same formation after 15 minutes when Preston missed 3 easy chances. How can anyone not see that a 3 man midfield is not working when a team is walking through the middle of us so easily. Then we find ourselves 1 nill up and still carries on with tactics that are obviously not working. Monk plays 2 wingers who rarely have a chance to cross the ball. Murphy only scored as he had no other option than to run at goal. Luhukuay had a much worse team than monk and got more from them. Monk has no tactical sense, no way of motivating players and seems oblivious to all the negatives we see. Can't even bring myself to watch his post match pressie. More balls of take the positives and didn't deserve result. I never normally agree with the sack the manager brigade. Last time was with useless eustace. I think monk is as bad if not worse. If he had any sense he would resign. If not sack him now. Get Bullen in till end if season and hopefully get a decent manager for next season. Won't be much time so this needs sorting ASAP.
  11. 1st paragraph says it all. Could not agree more. Anyone who is ill or has a family member ill no matter who they support have far greater worries. THESE clubs should be Instead of putting money into lawyers pockets could be helping the local community and oap and vulnerable people instead. Football is to money orientated and the selfishness is highlighted in times like this.
  12. What a f ing joke this post is. Lets blame the only guy who has zero input on tactics and training and skill. Seriously. Are you having a laugh. Something is very wrong at swfc atm. But its least down to the chair. Honestly wtf
  13. It amazes me people still post that social media should not affect players performance on the pitch. The press has is and will continue to publish stories on people who are in or out of the media that have taken their own life due to the fear of social media. The culture of the Internet and social media has a strange affect on perfectly normal everyday people is huge. I was staggered when my wife was in tears for nothing more than a negative feedback on a ebay item that she sold. For some reason which I don't think any one really understands properly. Comments on the Internet have a massive effect on the persons feelings. Some of the stuff that I have read about swfc from so called supporters is embarrassing. We definitely have a our fair share of wallies
  14. He was obviously gutted. I clapped. Not for any other reason than i felt he was unlucky. The referee was again inconsistent. I don't think i have seen as many poor referree decisions in a season as this season. I don't think we was any more likely to win the game with 11 players.
  15. What exactly do you want. What will this achieve. If supporters make decisions for the club we really are in the poo. Wouldn't it be typical for fans to make a stand at the best chance of a game to to totally change the season. Does anyone think that chansiri does not know that this is not working. We all want to change the teams fortunes. Staying away will have zero affect for any positive change. If the reason for our recent run is obvious then a proactive approach may help. But the fact is nobody has the perfect answer to instantly change to winning ways. Unfortunately it is not possible to identify one single reason that a change would instantly work.
