A little something to pass time.

Name me your best Premier League XI excluding top 8 teams.

Only allowed one player from each team. 12 teams 11 players. Can someone better this...?

Mine: 4-2-3-1

Nick Pope
Max Aarons - Fabian Schar - Lewis Dunk - Lucas Digne
Abdoulaye Doucouré - Declan Rice
Nathan Redmond - Jack Grealish - Wilfred Zaha
10 days off...?
at 10:42 16 Mar 2020

Just me that thinks this is a poor call from Lambert?

Listen I understand the health issues, and if anyone has even the remote symptoms they should be kept away, but the whole squad given 10 days off?

Maybe I am being a bit silly.
I wish injury upon nobody

But could it be a blessing in disguise.

Has had a really tough time on and off the pitch, hope he recovers well and gets through his tough time with his daughter and resets next year.

Has been shoehorned into the team at times this season, in a variety of position, I think it will do the team good as well with out the side for a while.
Yet ANOTHER frustrating day

But how many times are going to keep saying the same things. Lots of endeavour, lots of hard work, powder puff in the final third.

It’s a replica of last season when we come up against a ok side. We are in the game, without ever looking or feeling like we are going to get back in the game.

4 wins in 26 games. It’s quite staggering stuff, trigger would have been pulled by now at any other club in the country.

Was yet another cocktail of names thrown together for this one, midfield consisting of 5 central midfielders, and Freddie Sears as a lone striker against 3 central defenders.

MOTM : Gwion Edwards

Paul Lambert spurns our the usual monologue that we will hear after the Portsmouth game and have heard so many times before. ‘The lads give me everything’, without offering any consideration to explain his rectification for this diabolical run of form. How he is still in the job is beyond me, but suspect due to financials. Get this season over as soon as possible.

Karl Robinson has to be approached in the summer. However, I have a gut feeling that it could well be Paul Lambert leading us into another year in League 1.

for racially abusing Fernandes. Unbelievable.

Was watching back some of his 'highlights' from last season. Looking back, he did a better job leading the line than I thought. I also thought that we played some ok football in these clips.

A really good interview from Joey Barton

The Best Player in the League?
at 09:19 4 Mar 2020

We've seen all teams now, we are going to be here again next year.

Who is the best player you have seen this season.
This made me chuckle, clearly BS though

Stuart Watson reporting there ARE break clauses in Lamberts contract (n/t)

Still believe in the long term approach?
at 11:13 1 Mar 2020

24 hours after is always a better time to reflect. The game in isolation yesterday is essence we were robbed. We never deserved to walk away from Blackpool with anything less than a point bare minimum, and the hardened Blackpool fan will say we probably deserved to win.

We actually played some very good stuff after the 20 minute mark and created more than enough chances to win 2 games, but that sounds familiar.

Positives yesterday were Sears, Bishop, Dobra and Simpson all getting on the pitch.

Negative for me was Woolfenden, thought he was poor yesterday, caught out of position down that side a little and don’t think he is as ready as Downes to make a step up.

Poses the question, is this a failure in preparation or a failure in execution? I’m leaning towards failure in execution? And realistically is that on Lamberts shoulders, I’d suggest not. Time after time we create chances that we don’t punish the opposition for, and similarly individual errors are costing us at the back.

I still think he’ll be here longer term for the ‘rebuild’, and still believe Evans will back him regardless of how this season concludes.

That Joey Barton interview
at 18:50 26 Feb 2020

Time to put some respect on it. Spoke truth way back when things were looking very rosey for us.
Ryan Lowe?
at 14:16 24 Feb 2020

Would you take him?

Unbelievable job given circumstances at Bury, doing a good job at Plymouth, 4th in the league, only 4 points splitting the top four.

I know it is hypothetical, and someone will say "we already have a manager".

4 wins in 22 games
at 22:51 22 Feb 2020

Relegation form, bodes us well for next year doesn’t it.

If a manager had 4 wins in 22 games in the third tier of English football from the beginning of the season...

They’d get the axe.
