  1. I don't think we should underestimate what going down would have meant. People would have lost their jobs if they had. I'm not talking about players, but back room staff and people behind the scenes. The players interact with these people on a daily basis, so I'm sure it's not lost on them what that result meant. It will have weighed on their minds heavily, no doubt. I have no problem with them releasing all that tension and anxiety with celebrating fans.
  2. He's a cracking fella and a great character to have around. I actually thought he was pretty unlucky for the second goal, couldn't sort his feet out in time, and the third goal should have been given offside I'm willing to forgive him for that. Buchanan should be first choice next season, but I see no issue keeping Fozzy around as back up. We have far more pressing matters to attend to during the transfer window than replacing someone who is set to be our 2nd choice left back next season.
  3. I disagree with people saying Bird hides, when he came on against Wycombe he was constantly demanding the ball, it's just no one passed to him. Whether that's because they stuck a man on him or because our defenders didn't feel comfortable passing the ball to him in those positions, I'm not sure. But I think it's wrong to say he hides.
  4. I remember this was my first season as a season ticket holder, talk about a baptism of fire. No one comes out of it looking good apart from Matt Oakley and Steve Howard who were unceremoniously ditched in January when we would've been better off keeping them for next year. I wear that season as a bizarre badge of pride - yeah we were poo, and everyone knew it. But we still turned up and supported the team, even if they probably didn't deserve us to.
  5. I seem to remember claims that Jamie Ward had a questionable attitude when he first arrived on loan under Clough. He didn't turn out to be a bad signing either. Could do with a few more like him.
  6. He's tagged a Midland's based chauffer in his latest Instagram story - medical tomorrow?
  7. Admittedly the first few episodes are a bit slow, but it really kicks into gear after that. There's quite a bit of world building and character set up to get through. I'd definitely recommend persevering with it until at least the end of the first season.
  8. Here to remind people that The Expanse on Amazon Prime is still one of the best things on TV and you're missing out if you haven't seen it. Fantastic cast and incredible writing that somehow keeps getting better and better as the seasons progress.
  9. If we lose it won't be an inquest at 5pm it'll be an execution
  10. Whitbread was actually signed by Rush after Clough left but before McLaren arrived, so don't think we count him as McLarens. Seem to remember he started in thr 4-4 draw against Ipswich (may have even scored)
  11. Buchanan offered numerous overlaps for him today, which he just refused to take advantage of. It's not difficult to push the ball out wide so the overlapping full back can cross it in, but he seems unable to see this. To be honest, I don't know why after three years of it I'm still getting frustrated - it's clear he'll never learn, not unless a manager makes the mind blowing decision to drop him so he can actually reflect on how he can improve. My mum often says footballers aren't the cleverest of people, and I would say Tom Lawrence is the epitome of this.
  12. It doesn't help when Lawrence is intent on shooting from 30 yards or trying to dribble through five opposition players at every opportunity. Honestly don't know what it takes for him to be dropped.
  13. We've changed management team (or have we?), but not much has changed on the pitch. We're still bottom and desperately need a win. Typical that we'll be up against Neil Warnock, a man famous in my household for wearing white socks and having no eyebrows. He's also, I'm reliably informed, a decent manager whose teams are difficult to play against. Joy. Will Rooney, Rosenior, Given and Walker be able to make these players remember they are allowed to shoot and score goals? Will Tom Lawrence remember how to make a single correct decision on the ball? We'll find out. My
  14. I feel like I say this every season, but I am so f-ing tired of seeing Tom Lawrence run into traffic and make the wrong decisions time and time again. Absolutely kills any kind of momentum or promising attacks we might have.
