Needed a win today for a cushion when playing away, missed out on two points.

 

 

Here are the two missing points:

 

1) Knowing our supporters, if they had a cushion when playing away then they would throw it on the pitch !

 

2) In the good old days that's what used to happen with many a cushion in the North stand !

The club as a whole needs to be more urgent in its search for a goal scorer.  Should have been sorted for the start of the season. 

 

In fairness, Watford are better than us.

 

I'd have taken a point today before kick-off.

 

Frankly, the fact that Chansiri retained Monk has horrified me.

 

But what I've seen in the first two games will hopefully prove me wrong.

 

I agree that we need more recruits, though.

2 points dropped today and our awful home form continues.

 

I'll judge him after 10 games minimum.

1 point gained today. We would have lost that game last season. Big improvement in the closing stages. We’re finishing games much better.

Why? We are clearly a team that suits playing away from home. I reckon we’ll get far more points away this season

Because the way Monk plays suits playing away. Despite our horrendous second half of the season we still managed to score goals regularly. Unfortunately our defensive form fell off a cliff both at home and away.

 

You compare the away record to the home. 15 goals scored in 21 championship home games under the managerial god that is Monk. 3, yes 3 goals scored in the first half of games under his charge at S6. Put it another way that’s 3 goals scored in 945 minutes of football.

 

Our defensive improvement better continue because if it doesn’t, we’re f***ed?

You know when you make statements like this do you actually think it through or read it back before pressing the post button?

What you've just said it basically like 'IF I JUMP OUT OF AN PLANE WITHOUT A PARACHUTE I WOULD BE F****CKED'

It’s metaphorically speaking as you well know. The example you have made is true but not in the same context obviously. 

 

As I’ve said before it’s early days. We’ve knocked 4 points off the deduction and we’re on course for the -6 or better by the first international break that I would regard as a decent start. 

 

That said the home form is poor and you can’t just put that down to Monk bombing out certain players. There is something fundamentally wrong with how he sets us up to play at home. I mean come on, he’s just 2 championship home games away from completing a full season. We’re going to be nowhere near scoring 20 goals from 23 games. I mean how poor is that?

Again with the nonsense statements in a bid to try and discredit the manager because of your anti-monk obsession

 

This season we've played ONE game


One game


Against Watford - a game where we were fully expected to get beat


We came flying out of the traps from the very first kick, kept a clean sheet, had serious possession, dominated them (particularly in the first half)

So please... stop with your nonsense statements - you're making yourself look very very silly

You are being unfair, the poster said we need to improve defensively, thats true, we won't stay up otherwise. YOU NEED TO THINK IT THROUGH OR READ IT BACK BEFORE POSTING

We dominated them with 50% possession. 1 shot on target opposed to 3 for them. I am happy with the start but Neil you are talking absolute boolucks. Good start lets keep it going. The new Barcelona we aren't.

My point was more about the one game played where we set up well, played well.

We are work in progress but I would agree the early signs are looking better.Still think we need an out and out striker , plus a defensive midfielder as minimum requirements. The team spirit seems to be there and the workrate.Just need that extra bit of quality.

Last season's gone now no point looking back, some new players through the door with hopefully more to come, players seem to have a different mind set, staying up is the only priority for me, happy so far f**k negativity lets get behind the manager and players in good and bad.......up the owls
