Total Overreaction To Defeats

Recommended Posts

Agreed.

Monk and the lads also have to be allowed to make mistakes, thats part of any process to becoming successful.

Of course we need a couple more players, but so do nearly every other team in the league.

Late goals are frustrating but tbh i would have accepted not getting relegated after cabbagio done one.

Tbh if I'd just paid out 50-60 quid on watching this tripe, I wouldn't be happy about it.

From the Leeds game, the intent shown and the pace of how we played to throwing it away at blackburn is a choker - of course it is  - but its early in Monks tenure, he is stuck with some average players - who we all know are 1 good game in 3 AT BEST 

 

If its the same in 12-18 months then its worth a moan 

 

The reaction on here is so very childish  - we've not won - so everything is rubbish

Football fans of all clubs have always been impatient.

Add in things like social media, they hype surrounding modern football and ticket prices then its moved up a few notches.

Fans overreact good and bad after nearly every game, just a fact of modern football.

I think the problem is the performances rather than the defeats, even when we have been winning games this season its hard to say that we played particularly exciting or attractive football.  The Stoke game was a case in point, we got 3 points but it in pure entertainment terms it was absolute rubbish.  And Saturday again was poor, considering the cost of the tickets I think I have a right to moan!

 

If you got promoted winning games in the manner of the Stoke game all would be good, we're a football team not the the Harlem Globetrotters.

Saturday’s performance was a shambles.

 

Would have been daylight robbery had we held on at 0-1.

 

We got sucker-punched late on for the second time in 2 weeks, which is concerning.

 

Our choice of *ahem* tactics were questionable.

 

We were playing a Blackburn team in rancid form, not Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

 

So why the hell did we set up with so many defensive players?

 

It isn’t an overreaction to expect better than total garbage.  Its called passion and it shows you care.

 

I wouldn't call totally slating the team and questioning the managers ability after a duff game when the points haul in general has been good "passion" to be honest.

We win = Promotion, 10 year contract for the manager

We lose = Relegation, sack the manager

 

Its the Owlstalk way.

What part of what I’ve stated do you have a problem with?

I didn't say I did, I said that overbearing negativity isn't passion.

Is not the defeats that’s hard to take of course we’re gunna lose games.  It’s the absolute total negative way in which we set up, it’s like having Jos back with Irvine assisting and Chris Turner as director of football.

I didn't see that against Leeds, surely if promotion is the aim its got to be points over performances, our points haul so far looks good enough for a top six place.

Apologises then, I couldn’t tell from your post what you were getting at.

 

Of course criticism can go too far sometimes.  But after Saturday, I think we’d be a pretty spineless fanbase if we just collectively shrugged our shoulders and only focused on the positives.

 

My general point was that observing where we’ve gone wrong is necessary to determining what it is we need to do to improve.

I've been to 2 away games this year (not a true fan) PNE and T'rovers

 

We were absolutely shocking in both. If i want to moan about the 2 performances i will. We were crap.

Actually, it’s the total overreactions to wins that are more comical.

 

And then the people who overreact to the wins are a bit snowflakey when people are critical of defeats.

 

IMO we’ve played well in 3 games this season

Only on Owlstalk can people celebrating wins be classed as comical.
