  1. This is what I have thought for a while. I’m aware of the tendency to ignore mistakes by the oppo’ keeper and yet to focus on any mistakes by our own. But still, I think our keepers are underwhelming and accident prone. Allstop less that the other two.
  2. A bit worrying, this extract. How is our position different ?
  3. That’s impressive. I think his relationship with the likes of Jags and Morrison is a major part of our success this season and it’s reassuring to hear him say this. Also I think he’d be wise to avoid the mistake Lampard made
  4. Fozzie can cross pretty well. Shinnie doesn’t do badly from a dead ball. Byrne is our best by a mile but we’ve not seen much of it this season. Last evening Knighty was awful and Byrd was only a little better. But you need to give them some slack given the wet surface
  5. Don’t think the key issue has been identified in the questions. We are in administration because it became clear to MM that otherwise the EFL would force him to continue to pour cash into the abyss by delaying resolution of the ffp dispute. It appears likely that animosity between MM and other owners is the cause of this delay, because of the influence those owners have over EFL process. Is it not an abomination for a regulator to allow itself to be used in this way ??
  6. Unproven though he is it would be a major blow if he were to go just now. It might even put the admins sale plans in jeopardy. Other clubs will have seen the Rooney brand bewitching Sky, and the value of Bet32’s deal with us, and he’s done most of the right things since Mel pulled the plug. So it’s not impossible that he will get an offer. Jeez I hope not
  7. The decision to come for it was fine I reckon and it’s what the best keepers would do. Problem was he made the decision too late, then wasn’t strong enough. Would also have been ok to stay put, it was one of those. Nor have I seen it back though
  8. He’s motivating them well and I think we’re set up fine. But the strange idea that the management team’s job is done when the first whistle blows is unfortunately one that our dug out seems to share.
  9. Does his name rhyme with gravel? Or is it pronounced the French way ? Commentators don’t seem sure at all
  10. Took the goal beautifully. But he drifted in and out. This commentary on Ravel is pretty harsh (but some truth it). Plenty of times he showed his considerable class
  11. Allsop 5 Byrne 6 Buchanan 6 Jagielka 7.5 Davies 7.5 Shinnie 7 Bird 7 Morrison 7 Knight 8 Jozwiak 7 Lawrence 7
  12. Hasn’t he fallen out with Rooney?
  13. It has happened numerous times over several games. He receives the ball in a counter attack. Rather than try the difficult ball to the runner he decides possession is key, and passes backwards. The counter attack is part of our threat and Ravel does not seem to know how it goes
  14. Well Ravel might have been busted, he did pretty well. But Kazim was a dud. Where’s Watson gone ?
  15. Please tell us how we should feel about this
  16. I don’t think the selection was clearly wrong. But as usual, as the game developed our dug out showed its lack of experience and did .. nothing. Allstop/ Roos was a big call and no doubt the second goal was an error. But on that pitch Roos could easily have had howlers galore. Why don’t our coaching staff have the sense to tell keepers to get rid fast, if they are playing in a marsh ? As for Ebosele, he’s the perfect player to bring on after 60, 65 mins and he came on after 80 something. Ridiculous. Byrne is wasted if his first cross is in the 80th minute. Totally agree about Lawrence. He showed with the first a class in front of goal that no one else has. Problem is, he seems to think he’s exempt from challenging like a man for a 50 50 ball - instead we get his billy elliot pirouettes. We mixed it up today with some decent long balls but if Lawrence won’t challenge for the first or even the second ball it doesn’t work. Joz much stronger and worked hard. I don’t know why Watson has disappeared.
  17. There’s plenty of time to catch up even if we get another minus 3
  18. He hesitated before coming that was the problem Then didn’t show a strong enough challenge
  19. That second goal knocked some stuffing out of Luton. We should close this out
  20. And interesting to see Knight berating Lawrence for not pressing
