If he is not the messiah then let us hope he is not a very naughty boy.

If you're expecting any goalkeeper to be mistake free then go for nice, long, ice cold shower.

Goalkeepers have a vital role to play in regards to presence and the confidence you inspire in your defence. Sadly, and I do mean that, it looks like Lumley is struggling to do either.

I think they have similar styles as a keeper but Dieng is more of a physical presence than Lumely. More solid and giving the perception of being tougher to beat.

Lumley looks like Peter Crouch with gloves on but with the anixety of the sliding doors virgin Crouch in a strip club.

Looks like a spectacular shot stopper.

I've only seen him play once and that was for Hampton & Richmond v Braintree in the Conf South play off final. Never thought he woud go from there to a four year deal. Nothing to do with his ability, just felt like a long way away from our first team.

and Lumley who kept clean sheet after clean sheet for Blackpool and Bristol Rovers.

Can see the deal being the catalyst for Dieng to become number 1

That f***ing defence again

Lumley looks like a nervous wreck trying not to make a mistake and shift any blame onto the outfield players where he can.

When Dieng signs this new contract, I would expect him to at least be in the matchday squad, if not starting. Could be more terminal for Lumley than Kelly.

You're right, it's not rocket science, it's harder than that.

No one has an answer for any of this. No form of measurment, no guidance from those elected and such a complex issue boiled down to a binary arguement means we will stuggle to make any progress.

All too jumpy up and down with little logic from the overwhelming majority.

Whilst it won't be the popular view and I've certainly changed my tune, but we are doing OK with the resources we have got.

Out of the defence that started last night, only Dickie cost us a transfer fee. Wallace had a bad game but the rest did OK, even Lumley (apart from the shocking pass to Dickie that nearly lead to a long range goal and Warburton having a heart attack)

Without as much attacking potency and quality on the ball as last season, we are going to struggle to match 2019/20 but I do think we will stay up.

Badly managed because Sky made a point about it. Trying to generate interest and content from a non-story that places QPR as the antagonist.

Do we really watch sport and support clubs to make a stand and make a difference? I don't. I do that mainly through my job, my politics or my wider choices.

Les Ferdinand said it very well when he said that this isn't a football issue, it is a societal one. Don't expect footballers and people involved in it to come up with the answers.

The world feels bonkers at the moment and there is very little left of the past to enjoy.

Not just when it’s vogue Sky.

The most inclusive professional football club in the UK yet they want to flag this incident?

To lose my paltry £35 per month subscription won’t hurt them much but that is me cancelling.

So much politricks involved.

LBHF v LBRUT
TfL v LBHF v Gov
GOV & Local Tories v LBHF

The fact that a lot of people in positions of power are using it to score points is very unhelpful

Beautiful piece, so well done.

I hope the club play this after games, perhaps when Hi-Ho silver lining is finished. I’m not aware we have a standard track after Hi-Ho??

There seems to be a common opinion on here that Warburton is coming across in a certain way. It feels like he is drawing a line in the sand saying fans know little and their opinion is wrong. This isn’t going to make him many friends within the fan base and could fuel the fires when we go on a bad run.

Find his obsession with Glasgow Rangers disconcerting. As for the ardent Blue nose who came into his office and chose a 13 man team, well he’s an idiot and should be discounted as evidence of fans knowledge.

Don’t know why this interview has got my goat so much!! Think it’s the tone and bullshit evidence points he uses. Don’t be an arse!

Wouldn't suprise me if Warburton was a bit of a ruthless mofo in his previous career.

It is a fine line between coming across as matter of fact and knowledgeable to pious and curt.

As for the 'Don't be an arse' response to the fans asking for us to work on defending corners, all very well and good saying they do it, but if we keep conceding then the work they are doing isn't good enough.
It's like saying, I keep crashing my car when I drive but don't worry I'm going to driving school to fix it then going out and crashing your car again. I would advise going to a new driving school.

Oh hang on, I forgot, it isn't because of the defenisve shape or intesity, it's because everyone else is a foot taller than Diddy Park Rangers! Rewind the tapes and watch Clint Hill defend corners, blocking, holding and getting in peoples faces. The lesser spotted dark arts.

I heard it as our player didn’t get near to Cairney and one of the reasons is because Cairney is paid more.

Even if it wasn’t that way around, player salaries aren’t always indicative of ability and we know that more that most!!

A really simplistic explanation that doesn’t really hold much weight.

Have always thought Warburton was a bit antsy in his interviews and I'm suprised Nick London isn't rocking back and forth in a padded room with some of the responses he has had to rather innocuous questions.

Staff have thick skin? Really Mark, really!

The Tom Cairney point was BS! He is better because he is paid more? Please!

Better than platitudes but stop being so bloody defensive about every point. It wears off after a while.

Is Paul Morrissey always in attendance for the interviews with the manager?

Was nice to see a centre mid pick it up in space and look to drop a ball in behind the defence for Bright or Oteh to run onto.

I think we have been a bit predictable in our attacks for a while now where the defence is confident that everything is in front of them and on the floor. Of course Eze was still a magican that created things and Bright can as well with close control and pace but doesn't harm to add another dimension to our play, especially now Eze has gone.
