Oh no. You do realise ‘the League’ will retrospectively change their ruling and charge the club with misconduct. 

 

I do find it worrying we've had to clear it with the EFL 

 

Wonder why? Are we under some kind of embargo?

There goal today was a blatant foul on Iorfa, no blame to the player just the crap officials for not seeing it.


Maybe but Iorfa is what 6’4” standing up but 5’ 7” when he jumps!

Puzzled by that myself. Thought it was clear all this had to be settled by Thursday 25th.

Unless he was referring to our returning loan players where the wording of the rules was rather confusing.

Rightly so too

 

So, lets get this right,

its ok for the Manager to slag players off, but not the fans.

Okidoki.

You seem to be all angsty today mate are you ok?

Monk's not slagged the players off like our fans do has he?

Or has he?

I'm confused - shall we both watch the video again and see?

No angst here, just giving the other side a bit of air time, just like things, (even -  stevens),

I think too many people get hung up by posts or posters that are not in the same flow, it is after all a forum where people

post their take on subjects,

mines not to reason why.

Could performance today and had the strikers been more clinical, we’d have been well away to a win a lot earlier. 
 

That Stanton interview doesn’t leave me with confidence, the way Monk manufacturers fractures in the team. 
 

Get rid.

I like Iorfa and think he can improve into a great CB ... He does however get caught under the ball a lot and that's not good with crosses coming in.

 

Doesn't dominate aerial battles for a man of his size

I thought Iorfa won a LOT of headers today. Maybe no from crosses, but from the long pints upfield he won a lot.

Will take the 3pts all day long but we still show the same couple of things that have made us look vulnerable all season:

1. We give the Ball away far too easily and cheaply.

2. We can’t clear our lines. We have zero aerial dominance at the back and look shaky every time a ball is hit towards our box or crossed in.

 

Their goal today- 4 headers in our box and we didn’t get close to winning one of them!

 

Really positive 20 minutes at the start of the 2nd half then I’m not sure what the players had to drink at the drinks break but we weren’t the same after it!

On the upside we won at least 1 at other end:ghoulguy:

Did he win a header all game other than when it was a free header? He gets bullied too easily for someone of his size.

To be fair his heading/jumping is not his strongest suit.

Same as our first goal blocking their defender to give Wickham a free header.  We just take the rough with the smooth.  Sometimes the decisions go for us, and sometimes against.  It was one each today and fortunately the better side went onto get 3 points

Do you think we committed a foul in the run up to the goal? Their player couldn't get past our 2 and his own teammate. 3 men in the way and he had no way through. Never been a foul.

Our first goal was players starting in a line, Baker should have been in front of his man, not behind and got found out when Wickham moved.

 

Their goal consisted of a shove in the back of Iorfa.

 

Not sure how the two are the same, one is poor defending the other is a foul?

I couldn’t disagree more with this, sorry GMOwl! I thought we have knocked it around very well against two supposedly ‘footballing sides’ in Forest and Bristol and kept the ball better than both. I also thought we defended well and the only reason we didn’t keep a clean sheet was because their striker clearly pushed Iorfa who would have dealt with the situation.

 

we’re far from the finished article but we are looking better than most Championship sides I’ve seen post lockdown.
