Re: What was the single biggest mistake we made this season?

Not getting decent coaching staff in for me, Stephen Reid was key last season, and the fact our displays are going from okay at the start of the season to terrible now, suggests something is amiss on the training field.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (h) sponsored by looking for a win at home on a Saturday

Watching the game it seems apparent that the defence has little confidence in Manone What does Dave Edwards bring to the game, backwards passing when he doesn't, he gives the ball away, Barrow having a very good game beating his man, quite a few good crosses (no doubt Stam will take him off) Lastly ...

Re: Unfortunately ANOTHER In or Out poll

The players are simply getting worse, they don't even look fit anymore, it has to be down to the training and the coaching staff, and they ultimately are under the control of Stam. He has to go, the buck stops with him. It would seem Stephen Reid was a bigger loss than we thought in the summer, so g...

Problematic left back position

Since Obita got injured against Hull we have conceeded 2 goals in 11 games from 16, prior to that just once in 8, surely we need to get Gunter away from the left back spot, sure McShane has played there and surely Omar Richards produced enough against Derby to be given another chance. We simply can'...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

Thought Kelly was excellent last night, made space for others, and allowed us to play, while Aluko and more so Barrow had good first half's the end of the second were awful at holding up the ball giving it away far to easy, Stam got it wrong putting on Bod for Kelly, maybe Clement would have been be...

Re: Lump on Reading to finish top half

Glad I avoided this bet, was very tempted at the time, but lack of a striker put me off enough, was going to have a decent wedge on it.
