McCarthy has apparently told Irish media Keane is out for 6 weeks n/t (n/t)

Just got home......Lambert needs to be some sort of magician doesn't he??!
at 23:40 27 Oct 2018

Great day as always at the Wall, but jesus we are a poor, poor side. Our last three games have been just dreadful - struggling to think of anything similar in c.40 years of following our team (and there has been a LOT of sh1t!!)

What was up with Knudsen today??! He was utterly awful
Lambert is a decent option
at 22:45 25 Oct 2018

Obvs accepting his past, Villa were a sh1tshow, he did well at Blackburn (who were also a sh1tshow) and walked away; did the best he could at Stoke (which was also a sh1tshow).

So he's walking into another sh1tshow (which he also did at Norwich), he has a materially weakened squad relative to MMs but will at least not be tied to playing expensive failures in the hope they will eventually come good and justify your judgement. He will probably realise an international class left back is a better option than a League Two right back playing left back

".....the eye-poppingly abysmal standard of the opposition....."

" be honest, with Toto Nsiala at centre back for the hosts looking like he could be confused for hours by somebody waving a shiny piece of paper around, I reckon Rangers could have picked anybody out of the crowd and caused Ipswich problems. He’s got a touch like my shed."

".....whose feet were too quick for Nsiala (to be honest it’s hard to think of a land mammal whose movements wouldn’t be too quick for Nsiala)…."

And to sum it all up:

"Ipswich were unusually woeful, and oddly decided to try and remedy this by taking their best player, Edwards, off. Ward, who’s caused us problems for Town and Rotherham before, completely anonymous. The worst team we’ve seen this season by a thousand miles. Too many changes all at once, too many players being asked to step up divisions at the same time with too few experienced players around them, not enough players in the key areas of the pitch who are up to the standard of this league, all combined with rock bottom confidence and a wide open tactical set up. They look bang in trouble"

Sad days indeed

Enough now

I really hoped Swansea was a turning point, the whole team put a real shift in. Today was the polar opposite...we are back to Keane/Jewell hopelessness. This cannot go on, we were a directionless mess today.

Sad days. But clearly no action will be taken until Xmas when we'll be 10 pts adrift at the bottom.

Evans, you will soon have the League One team you appear to have been preparing for all summer

Rarely have I travelled away with so little hope or expectation. Felt like a massive waste of a Saturday.

Several hours later, couldn't have enjoyed the day more. Found a very pleasant, accommodating, friendly pub for myself and the kids (pre & post match), amazing win and fantastic unity btw players and fans during and after the game.

Swansea were a very good side, very easy on the eye. But we always carried a threat on the counter and for once, took our chances (exc Freddie's early one - just shoot Fred!!)

Honourable mentions to Toto, Sears, Edwards.....but probably wrong to single out people. Everyone put a shift in. Felt sorry for Penno agst their left winger.....he was lightning. Still, what a day. COYBs !!

Is there a designated pub for us tomorrow?
at 09:42 5 Oct 2018

Or anyone meeting at a certain venue?

Feel sorry for Jackson
at 22:08 2 Oct 2018

Made as good a fist of being isolated and getting zero service as could have been expected...yet gets hooked rather than Ward or Nolan. Go figure.

Nolan must have compromising pictures or something. Chalobah quality, Nsiala too, Sears looked lively....first half properly atrocious. Fast start Paul? Really??!

I think hes winging it and hoping something comes off at some stage. Swansea feels like a helluva long and wasted trip already. No obvious straws to clutch at sadly
Biggest worry
at 17:07 15 Sep 2018

Apart from how sh1t we are......all these new signings on the bench, last minute panic loans preferred. Even the manager doesn't believe in the players he's signed
Thoroughly depressing
at 21:48 21 Aug 2018

Glaring lack of quality in the final third; Harrison pretty poor; Derby bang average and basically cruised to a 2-0 win. Worrying

On the upside, Nsiala's not bad, Nolan half-decent, Jackson looked lively but squad players all of them imho
A new reason why our home form is so bad.....
at 22:14 2 Apr 2018

Spent 3 hours pre-game in the Station Hotel with a group of Millwall mates.....last time I went in there was when we played them a few years back. Obviously had a facelift and quite smart, excellent bar staff and made all the away fans feel very welcome.....quite right too. Had a 2 hour playlist of massive indie tunes and footy anthems that made sure they were all bouncing when they left for the game.

We just don't have the same sort of venue for home fans do we? Although I normally go to the Punch & Judy so maybe not the best judge!

Anyway, hats off to the Station Hotel
Good skills Murph!!!

Took them 18 games to realise what we worked out in 90 mins....Nodge are sh1t
at 18:38 29 Jul 2017

7 days until the season starts; final meaningful friendly; supposedly a 1st team squad; lower league oppo; 4-0 dosn at ht, lose 6-1

Nothing to worry about.....only pre-season!??! 🙈🙈
Well said Keiron! n/t

"Unless he's got a one-to-one meeting, his door's always open to you. Whereas I have had some managers around whom on a Monday morning you'd literally be on eggshells."

Now who could she possibly be referring to??!
