Does anyone disagree with Mick Mills?

He is spot on for me. Anyone find fault with what he says?

he may be a bit dull but he is spot on 99% of the time. You either bring in the players to play the system you want ( and we can't) or you develop a system which suits and makes the best use of your available resources. It is quite simple really.

Dobra. Not in the 18, not in the 18
at 18:41 1 Dec 2020

Straight into the starting 11. I, along with others, have been amazed and disappointed that Dobra has not been in the 18 and used as an impact sub over the last few months. I should, therefore, be happy at tonight's team selection. However, I find myself bemused at the ficklenss of our boss. I hope we win every game but I want this fraud of a manager gone irrespective of our results. He is a clueless charlatan.

We can't spend any money on players because of the wage cap

So pay him what the contract stipulates and get rid. He has achieved nothing of any substance on the pitch in two years.

Sears has been dross. Judge's first half performance lamentable. Dobra can't make the bench even under these circumstances. Jackson just not being seen as a potential wide forward in a 433 running the channels. Hope we win tonight because I love the club. I know the injuries have mounted up, however, IMHO, Lambert has no idea what he is doing. He alienates young players, is more stubborn than Mick ever was, and his brand of football is currently boring me rigid. I love passing, pressing, fast moving football with a quick transition between defending, regaining possession and attacking. What we are watching is possession where it doesn't matter. It's dross.

Ball carriers
at 18:31 22 Nov 2020

Bishop, Edwards, KVY, Dobra and maybe Bennetts too are the only forward thinking ball carriers we have.. Pass, pass, pass with no forward intent is absolutely boring. Take Bishop out of yesterday's starting 11 (which it looks like he maybe for Hull) and with Edwards and KVY also absent, we will have nobody to get us moving up the pitch with pace and directness. Watching Sears quire literally plough a furrow trudging up and down the left to absolutely no effect whatsoever whilst Judge The Obscure wanders around, constantly checking inside and slowing the game down is genuinely painful. If Dobra can't get on the bench under these circumstances, let alone the starting 11, then the lad should have moved when he had the chance. Seems odd to complain, two points off top after 12 games but we are, Blackpool and 20-30 minutes here and there aside, very dull to watch.

5 subs & Dobra
at 19:41 18 Nov 2020

I know we cannot name any more subs than before so theoretically it should make no difference to him making the bench. However, in reality 5 changes is half the outfield players and surely this must open up a route for one of the only genuine game changers amongst our fringe players? Changes in the defensive players are usually due to injury as opposed to tactics. So, often at least 4 out of the 5 substitutions will come from the midfield / attacking 6. Not sure I am making my point very well but I hope Dobra gets more chances as a result of the 5 subs.

Got results today. Glad they're keeping the schools open though. I'm sure me being around 1000 teenagers on Monday and Tuesday this week before feeling shoite on Wednesday is just pure coincidence.

He has to be ahead of Huws in the pecking order. Always rated Emyr but he was anonymous first half and just rubbish in the second.

Take a look at the pics on the extended gallery

About half a dozen before the end there is one which shows McGuiness quite literally leaping more than just head and shoulders above everyone else. I know angles can be deceiving but his head looks a couple of feet above the crossbar. Looks like he really wants it. He could prove a real threat if someone can deliver decent corners.

Let's hope Lambert believes what Gill has said!!!!!!
at 19:46 21 Aug 2020

Consistent style of play will be "vital" according to Gill. Rotation of a few players will not be a problem if the management team have learned their lesson. Find a pattern of play, develop a style and with those players we should be well in the mix. I really hope Mr Lambert can show the talked of "consistent" approach. Seeing is believing I guess.

Lambert can be sacked for free if fails to deliver top 6 finish
at 15:49 4 Mar 2020

According to Daily Mail (no I'm not a regular reader of it but have seen the article!), Lambert can be dismissed for free if he fails to deliver top 6 finish. It claims that a clause in the contract extension could "backfire" on him. If true, Evans will not sack him until mathematically impossible and this would certainly be far too late for any short term appointment to make any difference to the outcome of our season. More likely, he will wait, sack him with 3 or 4 games to go and use the appointment of a new man to help (once again) boost the all important flagging season ticket sales. Alongside this, the promise of a bright new era and some "extra" funds (which will be the result of losing Downes and Wolf but only partially reinvested in the playing squad). Do you think we might just fall for this one more time

Lambert has played a blinder
at 17:13 29 Feb 2020

All the smoke and mirrors nonsense before Christmas with little quips about maybe not staying with the club worked a treat. Evans bought it and even if he sacks him soon or has some break clauses in the contract, Lambert will make some good money out of it. Great work by Paul, nae bother!

Recovering from a disastrous transfer window.
at 17:03 29 Feb 2020

On 5Live today, Tony Puils said just before he arrived, Boro had a disastrous transfer window. Spent good money badly. He suggested it would take the club three years to recover from it. Hurst's one transfer window was our complete disaster. Lost Webster, Waghorn, Garner. McGoldrick departed too. Hurst brought in Donacien, Roberts, Nolan, Nsiala, Edwards plus Chalobah and Walters. With the exception of Chalobah (not ours anyway) they all flopped. Perhaps we will never recover from such abysmal recruitment. No football oversight at the top of the club is really to hlame.

Sears brought on for 5 mins. I'm done. Lambert is inept.
at 17:09 22 Feb 2020

Desperately need a goal. Running out of ideas. Striker on bench publicly stating he needs minutes after his comeback to first team action fully 7 weks ago. So Lambert brings him on with 4 minutes to play. Ooh, be fair, Sears is not 100% I hear you cry. Jesus, if after 7 weeks in the first team picture he can't manage 20-25 minutes then he shouldn't be on the bench at all. Norwood out and Jackson now suspended. Sears better be fit after all 'cos there is nobody else to play up top with Keane now (who will, no doubt, get an injury soon and certainly cannot lead the line on his own anyway). Dobra to come back into contention, nah, Lambert doesn't trust the kid. Our manager barely has a coherent Plan A. Right now we must be looking at Plan D up front. God help us. I may be slow at catching on, but Lambert is a fraud and I have had it with him. Dear oh dear, it's nae normal - claptrap Paul. 5 minutes for Sears in those circumstances. 5 bleeding minutes you idiot.
