I hope Liverpool lose, getting a bit fed up with Brendan acting like he's some sort of saint who knows everything. No idea what he's doing putting Markovic left wing back tonight but we'll see I suppose. 1-0 Bournemouth, Ritchie with the goal
We've had a great run for 6 or 7 games but I don't want our supporters to get like this. The Championship is an unpredictable league, I wouldn't be surprised if we only won 1 of our next 6 or something as that's what the league throws up. We're doing well and I see today as a pretty good point which keeps the momentum going.
Heard the odd song from La Roux' new stuff, it felt more up tempo and poppy to me. Is that how you felt listening to it? Do you think its better to more synthy, distant alternative sound she had previous? Or did you feel there wasn't that much of a change?
I'm not having that, I understand players gain an advantage but that was pathetic from their player. Markovic shouldn't have done it and I could have probably understood a yellow, but that's not a red in a million years.
Its okay saying Markovic shouldn't of done it but there's lots of fouls that are unnecessary, Warnocks at the weekend for example, doesn't mean to say you have to go off the pitch for it. Fellaini does worse than that 5 times a game and never gets done for it.
I think its worth noting how our club is run, not every club that goes up to the Premier League naively splashes the cash in order to stay there. I think the way Marcus Evans has gone about it, particularly in the last 3 or 4 years, it is clear that he wants us to be financially secure and do things in a more long-term way.
If we had an owner who just throws money at it and gets ahead of himself then I could understand the worries but I don't think we have that. We have an owner who believes in stability and a manager who is balanced and experienced. ME knows that promotion would be a massive achievement, he has more know-how now than he did in his first 2 or 3 years.
Also the Championship is a bloody tough league to get out of, and after being in it for so long, what's the point in squandering the best opportunity we've had. The only way is downhill with such a mindset.
Agree, can hardly recall a long ball from Saturday, we did a few chipped balls down the line which were clever (Muprhy's 2nd for example) but most of it was good build up play in and around the box, with us utilizing the flanks more second half with some tidy intricate stuff. As others have said, just a label that will keep on following us but if we keep on winning, who cares?
