    andyburton72 reacted to BramcoteRam84 in Harry Wilson - gone to Cardiff on a season long loan   
    Got to view this window in the whole. The links this week with Wilson have got everyone excited and if we miss out then there will be a big feeling of disappointment but it’s easy to forget the good business we have done this window. The other thing to note with Wilson is if he doesn’t come, it’s because we can’t agree the finances with Liverpool and no other reason. 6 clubs saying they could go bust and another 8 talking about further redundancies puts things in perspective. These are tough times regardless of any P&S requirements.
    There will also be those looking at Forest and seeing they’re throwing the kitchen sink at it. High risk high reward strategy and in these times seems crazy to me, it may work out for them, we tried it and and we failed and it’s set us back meaning we now need to cut our cloth accordingly. We should pay no attention to them and focus on ourselves.

    So all those who said we need to make allowances for all the crazy stuff that happened last season, then that we need to make allowances for all the injuries at the start of this season, then who stood by and applauded the incoming signings and then got hope from the first quarter of a hour of today's game - ah that's how Cocu wants to play - then BANG!!!
    Individual errors, at least two from Rooney, and all those "allowances", signings and signs of positive play are forgotten.
    Let's get Cocu out and bring back someone who had a team made for him and still failed to get us promoted. Or someone who spent loads at Bristol and didn't get them promoted. Or negative Hughton or Howe.🤦‍♂️
    For heaven's sake, patience means patience... Giving time means more than "twenty minutes".
    Cocu in. Think long term. COYR 🐏

    Mac 3... clearly some of our fans know nothing. I guarantee if he came in now we would not just click like last time because the foundations are not there. Clough  took years to build that that team and it irritates me that Mac gets so much credit for it. Yes he did a great job tinkering with tactics, spotting what Clough perhaps didn’t, but the bottom line is that it was not his team.

    Many many moons ago on another forum, long lost to the mists of time, there was a worried rumbling amongst the fan base that the ever popular enigma, known as Tommy Smith, was casting his eyes to pastures new. Ever the ITK, my eyes on the ground, working in his vocation as a Homebase replenishing technician, helped allay my fears with the golden nugget of insight that the aforementioned Tommy Smith had just frequented and purchased a whole patio set. Sensible mere mortals like yourself and I wouldn’t dream of buying a patio set before a regional relocation so surely the prodigal son was to say? I relayed said beam of anecdotal hope and the rest, as they say, is history. Written in the annals of time, the folklore is of the patio set test remains.
    He left the next week.

    duck Lampard he’s done us zilch favours since going and messing up our pre season last season  ....not one youngster on loan I would’ve thought we,d at least had had one and before anyone says did we ask ? We ended up with Dowell ffs anyone would’ve been better than him ...I don’t get this Lampard love in ...the game against Leeds he got lucky ...because of injury he brought Marriott on for Holmes not a tactical change was due to injury I think it was and he scored immediately then royally ducked it up at Wembley by leaving our best strikers on the bench and playing Bennett who’s carp

    I’m just at a loss when people are saying we left a load of players out who absolutely should have played. 
    Malone? Worst full back I’ve ever seen. Wisdom? Was an after thought 2 months ago, he’s not suddenly maldini at centre back. Martin? No evidence he can play 3 games in a week. Marriott? Has he even played a game since Lampard because I must have missed it. Shinnie? Milk turns quicker. Hamer? Isn’t better than Roos. 
    Just not sure what you wanted exactly. Clarke? Ok, maybe grant you that one. I don’t see any other combination of players acquitting themselves better than what we have just seen. And these boys are our future and they’re a pleasure to cheer on.

    andyburton72 reacted to TigerTedd in v Manchester United (H) - Matchday Thread   
    Behave. We’ve got 4 of last seasons under 23s on the pitch. Are we going to win the FA cup? No. Cocu has seen the cups as an opportunity to build for the future. It’s why we got him. His reputation doesn’t say he’ll do anything different. He doesn’t care about crowd pleasing, he doesn’t care about getting knocked out away to Norwich in the quarter finals. We could have one night to remember bearing Man Utd in a one off game, or we can get promoted next season, for the chance to play united, Norwich and anyone else at pride park every season for the foreseeable future.
    If you don’t like developing youth, then he’s never going to be the manage for you. But it’s all about next season. If we’re not challenging for promotion next season, with a team full of home gown talent, then feel free to come back and tell me ‘I told you so’. 
    I say well form to him for keeping the big picture firmly in mind, despite any other circus going on.

    We are playing one of the best teams in the country and it's no surprise or shame that we are losing. 
    Cocu's remit was to blood the youngsters and he is giving them the most fantastic experience. 
    We should take the positives from this game and look to the future.

    They’ve had two lucky goals and more of the possession.
    Lots of criticism for the defence but i can’t see what they’ve done that’s particularly bad. Shaw misshits his goal and ighalo somehow gets the run of the ball through two tackles.
    Weve had some decent moments and a couple of chances. I’d be tempted to bring Martin on with the runners we have

    The opening half an hour was like fine art - beautiful to look at but not that exciting.
    But I really enjoyed it because it shows how far we have come and where we are heading.
    Defending was poor, but Bristol's attacks seemed a bit like our Kryptonite to be honest - chuck it in the mixer and see where it bounces about to.
    To dominate a game like that with several not performing up to their own standards, Bogle, Holmes, Wisdom, Lawrence is quite impressive.
    Max Bird is excellent and to be honest is rate of improvement is phenomenal. A month ago I would have had him behind Knight - now he may well be the first name on the teamsheet. Unfortunately if he keeps this rate of progress up I see him being a £20M to £30M premiership player next season.
    Cocu was interesting tonight - I read on here that some think he left his one sub too late - I kind of agree, but I think the way we were playing it always looked like we might get back into it.
    Not impressed by the ref - hope he watches it back and has a word with himself. He let himself down.
    Overall possibly the most I have ever enjoyed a defeat, I would rather be us than Bristol City after that
