|Is Ramsey not on the Black List?|
at 22:08 26 Nov 2020
And if not why not? I see the Charlton u23 coach made the cut, surely Ramsey's achievement with our young players is just as good, if not better
|Still conceding too many bloody goals|
at 22:12 24 Nov 2020
Not wishing to take the shine in any way off an excellent win tonight. But when I went to have a look at the table I was surprised to see we had the joint third (with Stoke) most goals conceded on 18. Only Coventry and Wycombe are worse. If we continue that trend we will concede 64 for the season. While that would be our fist sub-70 for a while, it's still pretty damn high. Funny, I had a perception we were doing better than that I suppose with the number of clean sheets we have kept. Trouble is I suppose, we still regularly concede 2's and 3's in a game. I guess a couple of 3-2 wins recently, indicates that we are back scoring goals like last season. But still, with the form of Dieng and the arrival of Dickie, I was hoping we could get the 'goals against' column down a bit more
|How to approach the next two games? |
at 13:29 23 Nov 2020
I am safely 'cocooned' over here in the west of Ireland, so just wondering how you locals and regular match goers (in normal circumstances) think we should approach the next two games? Should we put out our strongest 11 v Rotherham and go full throttle for the 90 and try to win the game by a couple (or three) and run the risk of being under-strength and /or knackered against Brentford and possibly suffer the consequences with a 'significant' reversal. Or should we keep back something in the tank to be more competitive on Friday night and run the risk of not putting a bit of daylight between us and Rotterham?
Holloway played a seriously weakened team in a league cup game a couple of years ago and we lost 4-1, which I felt at the time was disrespectful of the QPR fans living and working in the community, never mind having to sit through it at the time So, my question in a nutshell is to the locals, does having no fans effect the bragging rights and consequently should it impact our approach to both games or not?
|Sky Sports rebranded to Sky Ads|
at 22:19 7 Nov 2020
I just flicked over to Sky Sorts News at 9.52 and the presenter was just checking in with Carlton Cole on the West Ham/ Fulham game. It was deep into stoppage time and West Ham are 1-0 up and fulham are awarded a penalty after a long consultation with VAR. Before the consultation was over (Carlton was being his usual decisive self and 'didn't know' which way it would go)at 9.54 (this on their own studio clock) the prenter announced they had to go to an add break and we would find out the outcome with the new presenter at 10pm
Now I am not naive, I am fully aware they are commercially driven, but I was still surprised that they didn't see it through. I suppose they figured the 'cliff-hanger' would boost the ad viewers'
BTW Fulham were awarded a penalty and the lad tried a panenka and missed. Interesting Fulham dressing room afterwards, I would say
|Tis the red wine's fault |
at 23:57 28 Oct 2020
A remarkable year, of this there is no doubt
Some strange decisions made by those of might and clout
But none more so than letting Manning go for nowt
While the Rangers hierarchy were 'fannying' about
Now it appears the same is happening to BOS
Or so we were told before the Barnsley dross
Time for the top brass to sort this messy matter
Or 'develop and sell' will soon lie in tatters

Warburton issues strong defence of Wallace according to WLS. He 'collectively' blamed the defence for the two penalties conceded v PNE. He clearly considers Wallace as his first choice LB, which makes the 4 year contract offered to Niko even more unusual. For sure Niko will play games this season, given the fact that there is no way Wallace will play three games a week even if not injured, but 4 years is a hell of a long contract for someone who he doesn't deem a regular 1st teamer. money must be very small to compensate for this.
It will be interesting to see how Wallace's season pans out, having successfully wrestled the shirt off Manning. When he first signed, he would have been first choice if he hadn't got injured. But now that he is, I feel that generally we have less tolerance of him than we would have had a year ago. I wonder is that down to his own performances, or are we comparing him negatively to Manning's more swashbuckling style going forward?
|World Mental Health day|
at 14:44 10 Oct 2020
On the day that's in it and with so many people suffering from heightened anxiety and depression and with many of the vital services offering support either curtailed or shut down altogether, I thought I would share this powerful insight that I read recently, into the mind of someone suffering from clinical depression.
'Today I wasn't thinking about blackness
Today I wasn't thinking about emptiness
Today, my therapist said, was a good day
Today is the worst day of my life'
Let's all keep an eye out for each other in these difficult times
