Morsy Ban
at 18:16 25 Jan 2022

Annoying and frustrating, but this squad ought to be able to get by without him at this level.

Now is the time to show it. The best way to shove it down Accrington's throats (if that is what people want) is for us to get 10-12 points from the next few games and leave them for dust.

It is an opportunity for someone to step up and give McKenna options there so that we don't miss Morsy.

So how are Harper, El Miz and Carrol feeling this morning...

Think Carrol is most likely to leave. I imagine that McKenna will see potential in Harper and El Miz and something to work with.

Slightly worried about what I've heard about his attitude, but happy to wait and see what McKenna can do with him.

So what would Lambert need to achieve to get your support
at 23:16 21 Jan 2022

Hard to compare. Lambert had six months of that season (on top of the two-and-a-half years before that) to get to that point and even then it is debatable that those three wins on the trot weren't a fluke, set against all that the team had - or rather hadn't - achieved up to that point.

There were a few under Jewel that should've gone much better. Lee Bowyer was another who I had relatively high hopes for, although was clearly approaching the end of his career.

He made it, but I always wish for his sake and ours that Richard Wright had stuck around, even just for another season.

I do think a game every two days as some had over Christmas was too much. Also the squeezing in of ever more international fixtures gives the top players less time off. And that tin pot pizza trophy is an absolute joke to throw in, especially with the added fixture congestion since COVID. And of course it will be tougher for those players who have had COVID, as it is for most who have had COVID.

But players ought to be able to play games every three days, especially as it rarely happens constantly. Big squads, the diets, the fitness training, rotation. And for most players below the top level, it is 9/10 months a year, for twenty years.

But the potential of a shock is far more tantalising to most neutrals though surely? Who cares about seeing whether West Ham or Leeds' reserves come out on top against each other? Whereas if Morecombe or Shrewsbury or even give them a game, even against their reserves, it would be phenomenal to watch! Granted, you can't guarantee it and it is unlikely, but that's what makes such shocks so special. Unlike a PL side beating another PL side.

Still find it hard to believe that they can't manage a game every three days though.

Any of them, as and when KM thinks it appropriate.

Meanwhile, ITV have got West Ham vs Leeds. Why do the BBC and ITV think that we want to watch two teams who play each other all the time playing each other again when there are genuinely interesting ties being played out?

I do wonder how these players would get on working in a normal 9-5, five day week, let alone in the NHS (especially currently!). For a start, most clubs play different teams in the cup competitions, so very few will be playing every three days for a hundred days, but even if they did, is it really too much to expect fit young players to play an hour and a half every few days?

Age when you first took your kids to the footy

Age 5/6 with all three.

If you take her, take plenty of snacks in case she gets bored and/or restless. Don't know how sensitive she is to noise, but possibly also ear defenders as with all three they were initially quite intimidated by the noise at first. If you can hold it off until the weather is warmer too she might stand more chance of enjoying it.

However, sounds like she's keen, so with the free game its worth a shot. They also give kids a certificate for their first match and they meet Bluey, so make sure you let the club know it's her first match.

Reading Paul Mariner's My Rock and Roll Football Story

Happened to be reading the chapter on the 1980-81 UEFA Cup campaign today and having read where he said Bobby Robson essentially reset the scoreline in the second leg of the tie, even if Town were 5-0 up, interesting to hear McKenna talking about winning the second half today, even though we were already 3-0 up.

As we know, too often we've got 2-0 up and thought the job was done and resorted to just holding onto our lead in recent years, so it is reassuring to think that KM and Sir Bobby are in any way similar in thinking on this sort of thing. No reason why we should stop at 3 and it was good to hear him say he wasn't happy with how we finished the first half.

They've blown up previously this season, could do again. Apart from Rotherham who have got how to get out of this league to a tee, all the teams above us have gone through good form and bad.
