|39 players used this season!|
at 07:28 20 Apr 2019
That has to be a record for us, surely? I remember Burley saying that Robson only used 14 or 15 one season. Of course the game has moved on but 39 players is farcical if not desperate. On the back of the heaviest defeat of the season, we all know this season won't finish with any encouragement given we have Leeds and Sheff Utd coming up.
None of this bodes well for next season.

Rather than trawl through this season's stats, does anyone have to hand the number of games where we've conceeded inside the opening 10 minutes? We're constantly chasing games. Not being able to right basic wrongs across an entire season actually makes me fearful for next season now.

What was that? 5-3-2, 3-5-2, 3-4-3, 5-2-3??? Whatever it was, it was pretty poor. Defensive frailties lost us the game but that system first half was bobbins.
|What a pwick!|

I knew it at the time but i haven't seen this shot before or certainly hadn't given it much notice until now. That's Edmund Riemer giving it large, right?

Given their high wage demands, who would you pick to be with us in League One next season if we could only afford to sign one of the following?

Is that the moment our season turned? He's a show in to score against us and lady luck spared us. Given the performance Sunday, a few before that and that very good display tonight, is it about to turn in our favour with two very winnable games coming up based on our last two performances?
|This week so far...|
at 21:41 12 Feb 2019
We've lost to our local rivals.
Had our manager sent off.
Awaiting a possible FA charge.
Lost this season's top scorer to a 9 month injury.
Gone 10 points adrift from safety.
And it's not even Wednesday! We talk about turning a corner but the weeks get worse. This has to be the worst of the season, surely?

Where is it? We rightly pelted Mick for not having back up plans during games but today was ridiculous. The first time under PL I left the ground in a rage and still haven't calmed down despite a 2.5 hour drive home. He said he plays to win games yet with four strikers in the match day squad we persist with one up front when the system clearly needed changing.
I can accept that system against sides with strong midfields but Wednesday are a week side. We don't do anywhere near enough to hurt teams and we've persisted with one up front all season. Why?

Today's the day it finally turns. 3 points to close the gap and a positive performance after last week's injustice to take into next week's casual affair.
Please note: this is based on nothing other than optimism and blind faith.

Thought we moved the ball around and kept possession well today. We need to learn to move the ball back to front a lot quicker though and Skuse and Chalobah could have done a bit more to offer passes up out of defence but very encouraging. Play like that and we'll beat Wednesday next week.
I don't think anyone played badly today. Bart spilled a few bit grew in confidence as the game went on and pulled off some great saves like he used to so hopefully this performance will kick start his season. Judge has a bit of class about him. Agree he's a number 10. Oozed class roaming around in the middle when he drifted in. Would love to see Bishop get a start in behind him soon.
Penalty decisions were a joke on both counts and unlucky to hit the post. Was their goal offside? Either way, the big difference today was Abraham, he has all round quality to his game.
No points obviously which many of the BBC stat counting onlookers will bemoan but there are positive signs that we can start closing the gap soon.

I've never understood why any keeper would guess which way the ball is going. As a keeper you're immediately putting yourself at 50% disadvantage. If he waits until the ball is kicked he's at least got a chance to go the right way and get his body somewhere near it. If it's a good pen then so be it but anything less and he's in with a sniff of a save.
Every time we conceed a pen now it's a guaranteed goal. Look at Pickford or Paul Cooper for that matter. Not the biggest keepers but you always fancy / fancied them to pull off a save because they wait for the ball to be kicked. No point reading the man. The man doesn't need saving!
Jimmy Walker, have a word.
|Exactly how bad does PL think Donacien is?|
at 16:39 18 Jan 2019
Its possibly the only bewildering decision PL has made so far and the only one we can look at with any raised eyebrows, isn;t it?

|Yesterday's team selection|
at 13:45 13 Jan 2019
What a damning indictment of Paul Hurst's transfer policy...
Started: Chalobah and Pennington
In the 18: Harrison and Nsiala
Not in the squad: Jackson, Donacien, Nolan, Edwards
Left the club: Edun and Graham
Nsiala won't be in the 18 come end of Jan and Pennington will likely be benched. Jackson may get a look in every now and then but can anyone else see Donacien, Nolan or Edwards getting near the first 11 now?
