would settle for season ending now...we really are poor anybody who say's Hutch shouldn't be playing must av watched today on the radio...and Monk's sub's ffs,keep throwing Nuhui on ,a striker with a strike rate of about 1 in 10,how long before Fletcher is back,may need him to keep us up.!!!!!

We get that you hate Nuhiu but to blame this draw on his 4 minute cameo is just nuts.

 

Focus on what the real problem is.

Think it was more a comment on the decision rather than the player.

We are a bottom third Championship team paying top end/ lower prem wages in some cases with a manager who is of distinctly average ability.

Going to be like turning an oil tanker this!

 

Yep and charging prem prices to boot, whole club needs a complete overhaul!

Well Gary you should know now, all your personal spats, Pride comes before a fall, selection has cost you and us, 2 more valuable points.

All the football knowledge in the world won't help you if you can't manage conflict and disagreement.

Made the worst side in the division look world class.

 

Disgusting performance.

 

Monk is getting me worried now. I thought it was just the players. Nagging doubts creeping in now, that Monk isn't helping.

Monk will really pi$$ me off if he comes out and says the players gave everything and can’t fault their effort.

Nope

Wide open

If Luton win today, we are BOTTOM of the league on current form 

 

 

Go get a coffee and kick the cat.  We are going through a bad patch no doubt about it, but we do have the players to progress.

 

We was never going to get promoted with our strike force.  The danger was there for all to see that one we lose Fletcher then we lose touch with the leaders.  Was always going to happen.

 

With three players making their debuts it was always going to be difficult.  It's going to take a few games for them to settle into the side.

 

We do need to strengthen in midfield with real quality.

No, I think it is a case of picking the best approach with the players you have available. Monk has done nothing to change our results since losing Fletcher, he hasn't adapted tactically.

The performances are all very similar in terms of the way we are playing, Wigan, Millwall, today all very poor with the ball and lacking a coherent approach. 

 

I'll ask again as you seem to be avoiding giving an answer, do you think what we have served up since Christmas has been worthy of much praise?

But how do you adapt tactically with a bunch of inept players who seem to spit their dummies out when anything is changed. Monk is not the problem. The chairman gambled all our cash on the Portuguese waiter who spunked all our cash - now we can't spend fizz all and have to make do with the players brought in 3 managers ago. Our squad is old and of Mid Championship standard (at best), that's not Monks fault.

Barnsley are a shocking side but yet again we look crap against a team of their standard. Disgraceful.

For the 1st time I’m 30 years I’ve decided not to renew my ST again until I see what’s happening in the summer.

I genuinely can't tell what the problem is any more. Seems like nothing is working at all. I'm going to go with the most rational thing I can come up with that fits the evidence, which is "an ancient curse"

Monk the manager for us? Really not sure about that. Give him until the end of the season but if we continue like this he has to go.

That was terrible. A half decent team would’ve scored 3 or 4 against us today, we were second best in every area of the pitch. Performances have been rubbish for most of the season but we managed to grind wins out despite playing badly... we’re getting worse with every game now and not even scraping a few wins here and there to paper over the cracks. It’s really bad at the moment

Well I dont know how many times the same things can be said, we have waited nearly three months for a reaction that monk and the players keep talking about.

 

where to start?
 

dawson playing is like starting a goal down, just an accident waiting to happen every game

lees is a liability and can’t pass a ball, him and borner should never partner together at centre half ever again.

bannan is having a shocking season to his standard and we all know pellupessy is just a wasted shirt especially with a middle 2. 
As for performance and tactics, I just can’t see what the gameplans are, it just looks like players are wondering around not knowing what the fizz to do. Absolutely no shape whatsoever. the players look a mix of looking scared to death and not knowing what they are supposed to do.  Half the team are ball watching and not picking up runners. 
 

 

It’s not just a bad run, apart from maybe 4 games this season it’s looked the same every game. 
 

just nowhere near good enough, the players are struggling but seriously wtf is our game plan and tactics? 

 

I wish I could argue with some of that but it's just not possible to defend what we are getting from them at the moment.

 

As you say, we were promised a reaction after the Boxing Day meltdown. One result at Leeds and a couple of cup wins doesn't paper over the results and performances as a whole.

I was responding to the point I had contention with, not avoiding anything...

As they are irrelevant to the conversation and I thought unnecessary based on my last response...

How we have gone from an organised, albeit somewhat dull side, to this is quite an achievement. 

Tbh, think we've been a bit shyte most of the season, got rub of the green a bit early on.

Only a couple of matches all season we looked like winning ...and playing well enough to win it.

This could easily turn into a relegation battle even without a points deduction.

At the current rate of dropped points, come end of March we could be reyt in it..

12 points deducted I think we are foooked.

For opposite reasons now, any points deduction needs to be next season...must play for time.

 

So that's this season end of, and very likely next as well.

 

Oh well.

Forget the playoffs, it's now just a question of possible points deduction and relegation fight . The performances have just been so underwhelming recently.
