The Humble Club - Abhorrence Of Arabia


Recommended Posts

When I've watched them this season, it follows a pattern - they camp in their own half soaking up an pressure and try to break; looking for a mistake or set piece for a chance. 

 

Eventually the opposits get a goal and Wilder then changes the formation to a 4-4-2 and suddenly they look a threat - more balanced. It normally results in a defeat but as it does anyway, why don't they just go for it from the off. 15 goals so far; most of which are from set pieces is a ratio that won't save them so try something different.

 

Obviously it doesn't matter because they're down, but it's strange that Wilder has no intent to save any face they have and go down fighting - it's like he's provoking the owner for funds in the summer.

Wilder seems sure that they will bounce back next season but I think they will be up against it. 

 

Expectations will be far higher than before and soon as a few results go against them he and players will be under pressure. we all know how quickly fans can turn at every club.

Keeps saying they can only target Championship players. Why didn't the interviewer say "But you spent £40m on Brewster and Ramsdale"? On top of big fees for Berge, McBurnie etc. last season.

They'll obviously be one of the favs to go straight back up and rightfully so. 

 

Tbf, Norwich have absolutely bossed the Championship this season and a bit like Dem Blades they went out of the PL with an absolute whimper. 

 

It's easier said than done though and the Championship has a healthy knack of kicking you whilst you are already down. 

 

It won't be the same as when they went up a few seasons ago. The expectation will be they have to go up, as opposed to the pluck underdogs getting a promotion when most didn't expect them to do so.

All this talk of Burnley, Brighton, Newcastle.

 

Still not passed West Brom or Fulham yet.

The former should happen the latter have put in some decent performances.

 

I've change my mind, I don't think they're going to West Brom.

Norwich only finished on 21 points last season so have done really well but Watford and Bournemouth both had 34 points and both look like having to make do with play offs at best,  Pigs will probably finish with less than 20 points. 

 

Present squad won't be good enough so it depends how they recruit in summer, that's if they have got owt to spend.

The difference with Norwich is they seemed to accept relegation almost from the first game. They bought almost no-one, and they had no expectations of doing well. That's nothing like going from challenging for the Champions' League to virtual relegation certainties within ten months.

They'll struggle to get into the champions league next year at this rate.

So at most can only afford 4 more defeats. lol

Having only 3 more fixtures before international break they might make it past Easter without the R against there name.

They are 15 points behind 4th bottom, so have to win 5 and everybody else above them lose 5 to get onto the same points. 

 

They have won 3 games all season. 

 

It's over.

4th bottom are averaging exactly a point a game.

If this carries on the Scrubbers need 27 points from 12 games at an average of 2.25 pts per game.

Only City (2.38) currently average this

At least Warnock only needed a point on the final day of the season to stay up.

 

Wilder's Piglets are going to head into the final day needing about 30.

Their next 5 games. Tough ask to get 3 points from any of those games. 

 

Southampton are in dire form though. Not as bad as United, obviously, but pretty damn poor.

Wow, so they are

Didn't realise. I must admit I hardly look at the table other than the bottom 4! Last I know they were flying up the table and looking a real good team.

They're not not far off being dragged into the relegation pack.
