Player of the season
at 09:00 21 Apr 2024

Football is a team game and some years I avoid it.I always have two or three in mind and think they should do a 1.2.3…. -lowest points total winds / number of nominations.


Team game though and we all know player of the season is Marti Cifuentes

Goal of the season: Easy ….. Jimmy Dunne v Birmingham
Marti Cifuentes
at 16:28 30 Mar 2024

Felt Rowatt out thought him yesterday .This team is tough and can cope with going one down BUT he expected Birmingham to go for a low block and hit us on the break.They didn’t. -so our high press/high line plus A medium paced forward line did not quite work.

Obvious for last 15 of first half and until Armstrong came on the second half.

Would like to know Marti’s thoughts

I wonder if we could afford Bacuna’s wages

Still still think he looks a good manager.

For me best since-middle 90’s,perhaps since Venables.

Picking Armstrong was ,in effect telling the club hierarchy that the club does not have any strikers capable of regular scoring at Championship level.I like Armstrong ,but technically he is barely League 1 or League 2 ,but needs games on loan eg Eze at Wycombe.

Dykes needs to score 10-15 a season to justify his place long term-whether he is picked for Scotland or not.It is about Goals.

Cifuentes is a good manager and needs loans/buys now.Marti needs backing what ever in my opinion

Cook needs to play every game -medical need to sort it.Best back four last night.Play that and we are difficult to beat.

Field and Dozzell were well coached yesterday and I hope they understand.Field has been at best mediocre this season,It is not effort it is brain issues for him.Dozzell plays because he is the only player who passes into areas to players that hurt the opposition.

However this is a very very inconsistent team.

I would work on starting well ,first fifteen minutes so so important

Dear Osman-head up lad that was better.You are being targeted.Watch the tapes , listen to the coaches.Listen to the wise old defenders.80% of the time you were very good and are getting better with every game.I think you can do it.Paul Smyth needs to help you in limiting the space they can play in,but if you read these things the fans I know are willing you on.

Paul Smyth: I went with a Middlesbrough mate and they , like me , thought you were a class apart.I wonder what QPR were playing at.Suppose it takes Ga/Holloway link to get you back
Huddersfield Goal offside
at 19:29 5 Feb 2023

Am I correct in thinking you cannot be offside if you pass backwards.
After Denny saves the free kick and their lad touches the ball I freeze framed it and Waghorn is clearly off-side

Total respect to you mate-absolute quality
Late but gives us a chance.
Had to score and did
No new strikers
at 22:50 30 Jun 2022

Rest of the team is good and can only get better.So why no new wingers or a striker?
Its July tomorrow.
Is it all hush-hush last minute brinkmanship to avoid over-paying?
More likely no plans in place.

Good manager.
We are xxxking jumping around the room here.
Please ,please please higher-ups keep him and give him bit of cash

Warburton took one for the lads today
at 13:38 27 Feb 2022

This team was always a 2-3 year project based on getting a team ready for the premiership.Manager ,Les and Hoos know that.Wiser fans know that .We have effectively had no forwards now and that is our weakness .Everyone knows this.Austin was a gamble worth taking - and I for one cannot criticise Charlie.No news on Dykes.Gray has been hit and miss.
We need to buy young with potential and that takes careful judgement and time.
Unfortunately it is wiser to have another two/three years in this division.
We need to keep this in mind when the knee-jerks keep posting.
Warburton and team can take criticism but it needs to be realistic

Yesterday was an OK performance.

If they had not scored we would have won.

Ok first half was average, gut i was impressed with our second half performance and we could have easily won the game.Trouble is we are all used to winning these types of games recently.Some of the work around the box was technically brilliant.

Tactically the main issue is that Hull risked a high line which compressed all the space as Charlie isn't the quickest any more.Game became compressed into the middle third where if they worked hard they could limit our players time and space on the ball.Ilias tried running beyond but got caught off-side either due to an ill-timed run or generally Barbet taking too long.

Know for most fans it was a game where the ball at crucial moments did not fall for us and we are ok with the performance.

So please can the angry minority not get at the players you know it does not help.

You heard the man.Lets all calm down,

Concentrate on the basics required from each player.Work hard, concentrate,win your first contact, win second balls, decent final pass or cross,

Fans: help the lads with encouragement.That is the best you can do.the alternative is to undermine.

This manager so impresses me.

That was Taarabt standard play.

I watched the 75-76 side ,Stan and Gerry,Curry ,early 90's side with Les but in terms if individual skill Taarabt the best I have seen step foot on that special pitch.

Yesterday ,kept thinking that is like Taarabt,that is like Taarabt.

And it was
