Hound Well this 2nd half has been absolutely abysmal


Unlike you Hound. You normally put a positive spin on everything JaapRoyal


Wouldnt say that to be honest, happy to criticise where due. Did a great job last year, no caveats, but this year he has done a very poor job so far

Hound As bad a performance as I have seen that. Complete number done on us by a very limited side again

No one bar Liam Moore was above a 5/10. Bacuna at a push

Dreadful display. Stam has big problems tbh. Last season he made average players look good, this year good players are
Looking poor

Huge international break now - if we come out of it looking as clueless, passionless, devoid of inspiration or fight, he is a goner much as it pains me to say


i sense a board meeting this week ..

I agree with Goodman - JVDB had a pretty good game and Dadi did OK when he was brought on far too late in the game. What the hell was the point of bringing Barrow on and then not looking to use him?!

Beerens was absolutely dire. Didn't see the point of the Blackett substitution. Thought he did ok for most of the game. Usual couple of sloppy moments but at least he looked like he cared.

I think maybe the scariest thing today is we didn't play the passing possession game. Lots of long balls, no triangles etc in midfield at all

Looks like the team have lost trust and confidence in what they are doing.

It worked against Hull when he was replaced by Obita. But Obita is a highly capable and experienced wing back, not a very nervous looking kid being asked to retrieve a game at a goal down

Agreed. Just a waste of a sub. Take Blackett off and put Barrow on as a wing back perhaps and have a proper attacking option. Would be tempted to put Quinn on the bench as left back cover. Stam must really hate him though.

I'm wet and on the Mereoak p and r bus and I'm f#cking fuming. Gutless, clueless shite...When someone on here suggested Warnock after we fired Clarke I scoffed at the suggestion. I apologise to that poster now.

I really rate Quinn. I know it's been a while since he's played, but surely he can't be any worse than Beerens or Blackett? I'm beginning to get really oxf*rd off with Stam, his stubborness and refusal to change a clearly shite system is bordering on mental illness. The players are looking less than impressed as well. He needs to shape up and find a winning formula pretty bloody quickly or he's out.

Sounded devoid of ideas on the radio so not expecting any change in his approach any time soon

Basically think he has one choice. Get back to the bulk of the players and system that worked last season. Completely back to basics.

Swift not being on the bench may have influenced him.

I actually thought this was a much better performance than Hull and Bristol. There was a lot less sideways and back passing than in those games. Don't remember the crowd booing apart from at the end, and to be honest I thought that was probably at the ref who had a bit of a shocker (very inconsistent).

I don't like the rotating front 3 thing - its just not working, leave GMac on the right! Beerens was poor today. Maybe the plan is to have 3 of G Mac, Aluko, Barrow, and Bodvarson, but Bod isn't necessarily fit enough for 90 mins? Be interesting to see how things will change when Kermie and Mendes are back.

Lets not forget Norwich are a half decent team.

Home game 1 shot on target - says it all - hardly an improvement.

The 3 up front were no better, our goal came from a set piece.

I didn't watch tonight so don't have a leg to stand on. I wanted to (don't know why) but then decided oxf*rd it I'll have more fun out (12.30am
Kick off my time). Don't really regret it.

Will say this though. 1 shot on target at home? Not good enough. End of.
