  1. Why don't you jog on you fuckin cock! About time after 3 matches doing fuck all
  2. He never deserved a starting spot
  3. That fuckin free kick, get it in the box!!!
  4. 6 halves without a goal! Sure some people have tried to argue we scored plenty, I will stick with my assertion I think??
  5. So one dimensional, so easy for teams to.press us as they know exactly what we gonna do with it.
  6. Well yes, maybe you're right, but he does have some upper body strength to occupy defenders to hopefully create space for others.
  7. The thing with Thomason is I am not sure he is as effective at home when teams sit deep and deny any space behind, as this reduces the effectiveness of his long range passing. He was superb yesterday, but could see him maybe back on the bench on Saturday? We need to find a way to unsettle and move defenders who are intent on holding their areas, that's the key at home. Maybe get Delf closer to Doyle for his physicality??
  8. Me too, really showed we missed him recently. I'm also concerned with out ability to break teams down at home who just come and sit deep and let us have the ball. Will be a good test against Harrogate as I'm sure they'll do similar to Colchester. Sarc will definitely help with this.
  9. I know but that is football, sport, it's infuriating, but is what it is. I am weirdly pragmatic with stuff like that out of the moment. What really does piss me off though is our tactics, our reticence to get the ball in the box at times. Particularly from set plays, we would never have got lucky like they did coz we would have never swung it in until we are chasing the game. We would have taken it short; and I know the logic is to work it into.a better position, yet often that is back to Gilks! I don't mind Evatt playing his 'style', he will live or die by it ultimately, just wish w
  10. Yes, I think their goal was lucky, bounced of Santos towards our goal, Gilks maybe could've push it around the post? but they certainly didn't work that goal for themselves, so they got lucky we were unlucky. The point is we have been winning recently by such tight margins it only takes something like this to upset the apple cart. And on the back of a poor performance on Friday just frustrating. Doyle should have finished easily, Lee should have, but they didn't! Pretty certain if we won Fri we would have at least drawn today.
  11. Add em up, they're all on the BBC, averaging 3 shots on target a match through this unbeaten run. Except for the Cambridge match. Our luck turned today unfortunately, but has been a persistent theme.
  12. Well clearly not, we 30 odd games in and just had two on the bounce where we didn't score. We have consistently failed to create shots on target, match after match, 4 on Friday, 1 today in the 95th minute! Against two teams on shite runs. The football he wants to play does not create enough chances for us to win games consistently. He has talent at his disposal and should be getting more from them in terms of performances for the whole match. We didn't deserve to lose today, but rather than throw the kitchen sink at it for last 15 minutes, why not learn to take effective free ki
  13. Fuckin Lee missed another then, smash it the fucking goal you pussy
  14. Or the silence from the 1 nil is enough brigade?
  15. Really?, they take 3 points from playing top two, and we take 2 playing two teams who haven't won in weeks and one 3rd bottom? Think they will be happier than us this Easter if that's how it ends up!
  16. Another half without a shot on target!, least this hasn't been dull, lots of endeavour.
  17. I said in the FGR thread, we have averaged 3 shots on target a game, if you take the Cambridge game out of this current run. We had 4 today, it's not enough, it's dull and this has been coming. It's meant to be entertainment! But the usual suspects will be on telling us how wonderful it all is.
  18. We had a free kick then half way on their half where we could have swung it in the box, instead we played it back back back to Gilks! Now I don't mind possession football but in that situation it is just bollocks, get Santos in the box and play the percentages! It's time like this it feels we more about style than substance.
  19. So some stats, make of them what you will; 13 games, 50 shots on target 20 goals which seems a fair ratio. However, we had 11 shots against Cambridge, which was universally lauded as the best we have played all season, despite the twitchy ending. The next highest was 5 shots. Take Cambridge out of the equation, we had 39 shots on target over 12 games, ave 3.25 a game, or one shot every 28 mins!. I have no bench mark, but that seems extremely low, especially for a team on such an excellent run as we are and with the resources we have in the 4th division. But it would explain
  20. @Whitesince63 quite! And if we have a squad littered with players who should be playing at a higher level, as per quotes from virtually every opposition manager. Adding them to the best striker in the division, and a possession based philosophy; we should be able to punish teams more than we are.
  21. In the same vein really, collectively I wish we created more chances and he is a key component to that, but as I said before I have never questioned his finishing (other than his heading!!) In a better team he can be anonymous so long as he takes his chances. I do think he could have been rotated like everyone else, he looked gone, but then he had a cracking all-round game against Cambridge, but IE knows better than me so happy to go with his decision. He is a decent player at this level clearly, I am just not convinced he is the right type of striker to contribute fully to the way w
  22. No one is saying flat out for 90 mins but herein lies the difference, City generally create a lot of opportunities, and we just don't. Most games the opposition keeper has very little to do. Fair play to IE because he has mitigated this to a degree by making us harder to beat. And more often than not one goal has been enough in this latest run. But 8 out of the 11 wins have been by a single goal, so I see this as a clear risk, as does IE I suspect. A few dodgy refereeing decisions, an injury here or there and we may start going back the way. But let's be honest, on the run we are on,
