    YorkshireRam reacted to DarkFruitsRam7 in Relegation or Rowett?   
    Norwich finished 14th in Daniel Farke's first season.  We're currently 15th. Unless we're on the brink of going down, any calls for Cocu's head at such an early stage are utterly stupid. We'd be starting all over again, yet again. Why haven't people learnt their ducking lesson?

    YorkshireRam got a reaction from SKRam in Charlton Athletic (A) Match Thread   
    I've been saying this for weeks while others around me rant about him, Josefzoon is massively short on confidence. Against Luton, he tried at one point to dribble past a few players into their box and when it didn't come off I remarked that he wouldn't even try it again all game... he subsequently didn't. He needs to be like Tom Ince where he's trying that stuff all the time; it will only come off 5/6 times out of 10 but when it does it creates dangerous opportunities. Otherwise he isn't using any of his best traits- pace, skill etc and so he doesn't offer too much to the team. He probably needs a goal and then a proper run in the team if he's to start showing anywhere near his potential.

    Do you want a round of applause for your complete lack of compassion or something??
    Some of the discussion on here regarding mental health and trying to extend a compassionate mindset to an upsetting situation has been seriously admirable with people sharing brave stories about their own experiences of loss, those are important conversations to be having.
    For you then to come along with such a crass remark is pretty immature, totally unnecessary and worst of all is littered with assumptions that likely aren't true. Pathetic

    I remember that moment and the ball was indeed perfect. Bogle didn't even need to move, was a stunning pass. If that was Scott Carson, it would have received rapturous applause but because Roos has fumbled a couple of high balls, he gets jeered which will only dent his confidence further... it's completely counter-intuitive!
    And that's why I completely disagree with this. Voicing displeasure is one thing but how is deliberately taunting our own players conducive to improving performance? I've always wondered how booing falls under the remit of supporting the side, it's intrinsically negative and without productive benefit; a lack of effort should be the only reason booing is ever considered. The 'library' comment is interesting also because PP is often similar that the atmosphere completely lulls and the only rises are the groans or frustrated moans when we try and retain possession... I can't remember a time this season where we were in a unfavorable position and the whole ground joined in a chant/song to try and raise morale
    Fans don't have to be happy all the time but the constant scapegoating and attacking our own players is starting to get seriously tiresome. Watching Waghorn discuss mental health this week is another reminder that the players are only human. We need a siege mentality where it's us vs the world and ultimately everyone is behind the squad. At the moment I get the impression that some fans make up their mind quickly that they don't like a player and then refuse to revise that. How many times do players/managers tell us that vocal fan support can be the difference in a game before we take notice?

    Numbers alone you would struggle to find better in the country in terms of size of club and recent success.
    However, I am of the opinion that a proportion of those who go to games are responsible for creating an atmosphere that I often find uncomfortable. The Saturday just gone it was the worst it’s been for a while, for a few reasons.
    There was booing as we passed backwards. I saw it more as keeping possession and trying to draw out a side who even at 1-0 down were happy to sit deep.
    There were sarcastic cheers whenever Roos caught the ball. I would honestly question the intelligence of every single person doing that. Must be brain dead beyond belief to think it helps, and quite simply it just isn’t very pleasant. On a similar note, I can remember one instance where Roos received a slightly iffy back pass, took a touch and then pinged a 50 yard inch perfect ball to (I think) Bogle to start a counter attack. It was greeted with jeers presumably because he was being pressed. Don’t get it.

    Maybe as a #8 beyond Shinnie and Bielik but not sure he's physical enough for a traditional CM. With the 4231, the 3 are fairly interchangeable which is why i'd have him there so he can operate centrally or out wide, depending on the situation.

    The first 2 chances we had against Birmingham were crosses from Holmes on the right flank into Martin. He also played primarily as a winger for Scunthorpe. 
    Think you're being a tad harsh there, Holmes' delivery seems pretty solid to me

    Yep, it's completely counter-intuitive. Ultimately, we want the side to do well but will quite happily add to the pressure the keeper is already visibly feeling...
     
    Davies has been exemplary since he's come in so not sure why he's been dropped for Wisdom. Bielik and Shinnie look like they could be a formidable midfield combo but that's been broken up. And you put a keeper in you've never seen play...
    For me:
                                      Roos
             Bogle       Clarke      Davies    Lowe
                        Shinnie               Bielik
                 Lawrence    Rooney    Holmes

    I cannot understand this constant Roos bashing and in particular the sarcastic cheering when he catches high balls.
    I think his general surety when handling an excessive number of back passes has been excellent.  The only times he's really failed with these has been from extremely poor passes in the first place and in the main he plays them well and finds a man - very difficult when some Derby players aren't showing for the ball.
    He's a good shot stopper too.
    His weakness in addressing high balls must be as apparent to the coaching team as to us and I am sure is something they are addressing in training. He's got a good punch on him and uses it if he's not sure and if we get behind him his confidence and decision making will grow.
    Instead of which we get on his back and just make him more apprehensive - I think some of our fans are arrogant brain-dead morons and frankly, get what they deserve.
