Madness? 

It was One Step Beyond for one or two players. 

I nearly had a Cardiac Arrest when Joost blocked that clear chance. 

If it had gone on it would have been a Grey Day... In Our House. 

lol

It would have been an embarrassment. Monk would have had to get the last boat to Cairo at the minimum. Certainly if we’d lost my girl would have been mad at me for introducing her to a Wednesday.

I agree. 

 

We play best on the front foot, we look shaky when under pressure. Swapping a striker for Pellupessy invites pressure. 


Yes, we should have taken defenders off if anything.

Maybe we should just ask the teams we are playing to not to throw as many players forward for the last 10 mins or so 

 

You know the time in the game when they say fookit we might as well lose by 2 or try and get a equiliser

Apologies if this has been discussed already but the more I think about it the substitution of Paterson for Pelupessy was bonkers! - with Joey going straight into the back line leaving just Marriott up front meant that every time we cleared the ball out of defence it came straight back - if we had left Paterson on (or even substituted Rhodes for Paterson) then having 2 up front would have given us a much better chance of holding onto the ball.

 

As it was we had that nail biting final 10 minutes of last desperate tackles and amazing blocks - well done to all the team for a well deserved result but please don’t keep putting us through the agony we went through yet again yesterday.

Surely, it’s madness to criticise a substitution that contributed to us winning the game?

I know it would have helped to have an outlet upfield in the closing stages.


BUT did you watch the game?
Paterson was so knackered he could hardly run back to help defensively by the time it got to 90 minutes

He was away all week with Scotland and hasn’t been training with us or playing regularly.

Full marks to him for putting the shift in that he did.

 

Better to have someone with fresh legs on the pitch for the last five minutes and we didn’t have many options. And hey it didn’t work out so badly did it?

I was just thinking “I need someone to say tomorrow’s just another day”. Bit fed up of the last 10 minutes of Wednesday matches, would like to get away from it all and travel for a bit, become a bit of a bed and breakfast man.

Could sit in various cafes saying “Waiter”.

I know what I’ll do on a Saturday night after my beloved team have won unexpectedly away from home.

 

I’ll start a fuckingthread moaning about a bastardsubstitution in the 91st minute.

Patterson was burnt had to come off. If we were going to put a forward on to replace him we needed one with pace to worry there defence unfortunately we only had Rhodes. End of day we got the 3 points we deserved.

It looks like a really popular opinion, too.

 

In the good old days of the 'disagree' button, there's no way that OP would be looking so unanimously popular.

We did appear a bit better at retaking possession yesterday. After all the previous disasters there must have been some practice done in closing down a game when hanging on. 

It needs is a willing runner like Marriott who had fresh legs pressurising defenders. 

Then just passing the ball across the pitch keeping possession.

We looked a bit tighter when Pelupessy came on - it was the ten minutes or so before that substitution we were all over the place. Birmingham had a free kick near the box and then 4 big chances, first Friend's header, then the Leko one that Van Aken blocked, then the cut back to Clayton and finally the one where Hogan looked offside but he wasn't.

 

Pelupessy came on right after than Hogan chance on 91 mins and we saw out the last 5 minutes in relative comfort compared to the ten minutes of mayhem before.

Think,  it must be love  with Monk and Joey...just need to sign a player with shirt number 7 from Las Palmas.

Would have to be one we had before so he could be a return of the Las Palmas 7.

Incredible that the manager is getting slated despite coming away with a valuable 3 points. 
 

Can understand people’s frustrations if we had lost or drawn, but we didn’t. In the last couple of games i think its fair to say the opposition have ridden their luck far more than us. 

 

The new additions look to be bedding in very well, but are the management getting praised for that? 
 

No, didn’t think so

Ahhhhh how I've missed the S. G days, the last ditch tackles, The Alamo defending. Always kept you on the edge of your seat when we were defending a 1-0 lead,willing us to hold out while the ball is pinging around the box.
