    NottsRam77 got a reaction from jono in v Stoke City (A) Match thread   
    Lawrence got hauled off before he was sent off
    that could have been quite reasonably done at half time or sooner
    his ball retention is just bloody shocking at times, I don’t think any of that front 3 are convering  themselves in glory 
    Lawrence hit two beauties the other week, which just makes it the more frustrating cos we’ve seen what he can do, he can go from the sublime to the downright awful, top corner from 20 yards one minute to needlessly giving it away for 90 minutes 
    at least flojo is steady 😂
    tbf laid on what should have been the match winning chance for Waggy which is a helluva lot more than Lawrence did

    NottsRam77 reacted to Alpha in If Kieran Dowell is the answer, what is the question?   
    I'm not a fan so far. I hope it's because he's trying too hard but if the Rams were a Roman army then Dowell would be a skirmisher
    Sent forward to harass the enemy and soften them up. 
    He doesn't seem to have a killer instinct in the final third. Mount would see a pass that cuts a team open. Wilson would see a gap to shoot through. Travel back in time and Ward would see an opening to wriggle through. Bryson would see a space to attack. I mean Lawrence would dribble through a brick wall. 
    Dowell plays a nice game. One where nobody will try and tackle him and somebody else is bound to create a chance.
    He's nothingness. Along with FloJo he's listening to Bob Marley and making peace for John Lennon. 
    100% deserves more opportunity. He's not been especially bad. He's young and it's a new club. 
    But yeah, to evaluate his contribution so far... not very good. A passenger not a playmaker. 
    However there are times he's not helped by Lawrence playing on his own again and Waghorn has the first touch of Connor Sammon. 
    Basically the front 4 haven't been poor but they don't really help each other. No great understanding/partnerships look to be developing.

    When he first signed, I thought it was an underwhelming one. He had squad player written all over him.
    In the two games I've seen, I haven't seen very much from him to change that view.
    But by the same token, it's a long season and we have played four games in total.
    The signs aren't promising, but maybe he needs one game and one performance to kickstart his season.

    NottsRam77 reacted to Millenniumram in Lawrence up to 30 minutes in a game   
    Not something I’ve ever really noticed before. I always think if Lawrence has a good game, he’s tends to have a really good game and impress over the full 90. Sadly thats not often enough- most of the time he flicks between being poor and average. I mean it’s not all that surprising, there’s very few consistent wingers in this league. But it is very frustrating, because Lawrence clearly has a lot of talent and technical ability. He’s just doesn’t show it because of his extremely poor decision making on the ball, he far too often makes the wrong pass or run into dead ends and attacks end with him. For a player in our team, he’s gives away possession too cheaply far too often, though he’s not alone in that respect.
    Not a bad player Lawrence, but he’s no more than average and frustrating normally, and I personally can’t see that changing sadly.

    Seems a distant memory from when Lawrence was getting all the plaudits from his performance against Huddersfield and I commented I hope it wasn't a false dawn......
    Realistically if you had a consistent performer in that position they wouldn't be playing in the Championship

    You could make the point that no there really wasn't much difference, but when you look at what they offer overall over a number of games, he's the weak link i.e. Lawrence's goals (although I'm beginning to question Dowell's sloppiness)

    I think if we’re being brutally honest the 3 behind he frontman arnt consistent enough in their play and decision making 
    flojo is the scapegoat for many but truth is there isn’t a Consistent performer between anyone of Lawrence, Dowell, Bennett or flojo
    they are peak and trough week to week, game to game, from one pass to the next

    People banging on about Marriott starting are doing my head in. He missed nearly the whole of pre season, and yet people expect him to start our 4th game of the season. These armchair managers are hilarious. He’ll start when he’s ready.

    I want to love Lawrence, he works hard, he tries to drive with the ball, get us up the park and when he scorers they’re usually excellent and important 
    however, I truly can’t stand players that are cheap with the ball, and he’s not just cheap he’s another level of losing it needlessly.
    what compounds it is that he clearly has an abundance of ability, a lovely touch, nice technique etc etc yet he sacrifices possession needlessly so so often  it makes me want to cry 
    and for that reason he’ll never get invited to the Nottsram love club 
    expect his second half performance to go down hill when he finds out this shocking revelation lol

    Sounded like we did our normal thing of scoring then not building on it and ending up on the back foot, stopping playing out proper game and panicking. 
    Hope we come out better second half cause it sounds like we’re lucky at 1-1 here

    Mark my words if results slip he will be everyone’s first scapegoat 
    what does Evans do ? Will be the question.
    hes one of those players that if the team does well he’s doing well and if the teams not then he’s not doing enough 
    he’s a Paul Trollope, and that’s not being detrimental in the slightest to him, far from it, he’s a steady Eddie, no thrills, no drama 
    every good side has one

    Had loads of City fans on the train back to Bristol last night. A few asked how he played. They were sad to see him go.
    My granddaughter seemed very pleased when he came on. Apparently he is fit which I guess is good news for Tuesday 😉

    I am not worried about a potential lack of goals.
    It’s August. Players are still finding their feet and finding their match sharpness.
    If we saw a game like today’s in April, then I’d be concerned.
    Waghorn just needs one and the rest will follow. Today was just one of those days where nothing in the 18 yard box clicked for him.
    It’s funny - everyone will cry out for Marriott on the back of today. But if we had played him from the start, I doubt he sees those chances Waghorn had.
    Waghorn might not be the same level of finisher but he contributes to the team in a more rounded way and can stay fit.
    Stick with him.
