1. Our best starting midfield is Grimes Fulton and Smith 2. Whittaker is not yet ready to start 3. the armchair experts are not always right
We looked better when Hourihane went off and Smith can on. Whittaker was pushed off the ball far too much Second half we bossed the game no hoof ball we played football in the style of our identity apparently coached out of us but as pretty as it was to watch got us nothing
I see legoland sold out again..what it just be to be such a huge club.....with ex chairmen sueing for Â£15m coincidence...obviously why they cant pay Nantes and on top of that their CEO announces they cant keep spending money
There has been much written of how Cooper has coached Potters good work out of the players what about it being a case of a repeat of Carvahal syndrome? We got off to a great start to the season unbeaten until September when Forest turned us over at home did Cooper then revert to a strategy of making sure we play to not to lose...especially when we lost Rodon too. Remember when Carvahal first arrived and we were in trouble we played with no fear and aplomb and then when we got to a situation where we were all but safe with a few games to go he went all Clementesque and cautious playing not to lose rather than to win.
Funny distinct lack of those from that big club up the road tonight. Plus a massive meltdown on their board....they ain't looking forward to next Sunday despite the fact they get an extra days rest. Even if we lose they will still be looking up to us
Due to illness and work commitments today was the first game I had been able to attend since Boxing Day. I couldn't believe how many empty seats there were around me. The majority of the row in front which had some "die hard" fans ....who often have me lip if I dared critisice a player or the regime and often quite insulting......lots of empty seats also across on the South.....today's attendance given as 18500 something...yes a low Millwallturnout but there were not 18500 or so bodies in the stadium today....many current season ticket holders already called it a day and I expect not renewing next season. The Â£70m Hole of this season.....being the gap between income and expenditure will be worse next year as gate receipts albeit a fraction of our income shrink. I know many on here say they will not renew season tickets etc so as not to put money in the Yanks pockets...unfortuneately this will only further harm the club. I wouldn't put it past this bunch of charlatans to wind the club up to extract every penny of their so called investment.there are som many levels and entities in the clubs structure I am quite sure these canny Yank hedge fund managers could find a way to recover their Â£68m +
Great result and another goal for our useless centre forward.....Fer showed what he is capable of..let s hope Joe's injury is not too serious just imagine what we could do if we had a manager who knew what he was doing... (That's tongue in cheek by the way!)
Whilst Potter (quite rightly) is receiving plaudits for what he is doing with this young side we should also look to thank the coaches of the U23s who have had so much to do with the development of our youngsters. ( I wont take the credit for this T2c/The Res mentioned this in another but feel it warrants its own thread. Interestingly all 3 of Saturday goals scored by products of the U23s too SO thank you guys long may it continue
