Mick needs to find a place for Celina.
at 16:41 22 Oct 2017

Mick is doing the same thing he did when Pitman arrived. He is desperately trying to squeeze his best players into the team but this does not produce his best team. Waghorn is a striker. McGoldrick is either up top or a no 10 in behind. The only one he has got right out of his strikers is Garner. With Waggy, Garner and McG, we lack anyone who will pick the ball up and run at pace. Mick should play two of the three aforementioned and find a place for Celina. He is the one who will offer us that bit of extra zip. Coming on for 15 or 20 minutes when we are behind is just not giving the lad a chance imo. Before anyone says, I know he started against Sunderland and Brizzle. He was great in the first of those games and needs a decent run imo.

How close are we to "Super Mick" chants?
at 19:37 27 Sep 2017

Don't get to many home games, just about 12 away games per year so wasn't their last night to hear for myself. Are "Super Mick" chants back or feeling close? There was no sign of one at Leeds despite the performance.

Sometimes you just can"t win
at 18:12 23 Sep 2017

A really decent game in which we played our part and if we had taken a point, it would have been well deserved. However, I have spent the entire game with three blokes behind constantly shouting "get it forward" when we were actually trying to pass it around to work some space. Mick just can't win. Feel for Bart. The third is obviously him but for the second his split second indecision in coming out was also not great. He is allowed a few dodgy moments though after the last two seasons. I think we really have the makings of a decent team. Just need to get behind the team. I have been to Leeds when there have been 10,000 less fans in there than today. It does make a difference when fans are there, supporting their club.

Need tickets for tomorrow PLEASE!
at 12:45 22 Sep 2017

I live near Leeds so was just intending to turn up on the day with my son as I have for countless years at Elland Road. Now I have been caught out by the late announcement that no tickets available on the day (announced about 2 pm yesterday) and can't go to my nearest game. If anyone has a spare adult and a spare u16 ticket I would be very grateful and could arrange to meet them outside the ground any time before kick off. PM me if you can help. Thanks in advance

QPR and Barnsley U23 sub keeper tonight
at 20:29 11 Sep 2017

Semi interesting fact / coincidence. I taught Alex Smithies German for two years (QPR keeper on Saturday) and I more recently taught Jake Greatorex History for a year and he has just come on for Barnsley in goal for their U23s tonight at PR. Alex got C grade. Jake was only at KS3.

Edit. According to Phil's report, Jake came on as an outfield player. Strange, he was called up for England youth as a keeper!

On that display, Diagouraga would not be worth a deal for me.
at 19:00 11 Mar 2017

He was good at Villa and whilst not fully fit, he impressed at Preston too. Today he was ponderous, didn't get to the ball quick enough, continually gave it away and was rightly taken off. Skuse was not much better to be honest. Huws, on the other hand, I would sign if we can. He was not great but he has more presence, will get foward and can hold the ball too. Ward made an impact when he came on. McG and Lawrence are good players but not a front line pairing at all. Chambers distribution remains simply awful. I am generally quite positive and we were ok in the first half I guess. Second half I was genuinely bored. Our retention of the ball is appalling and almost to a man we want to slow it down, pirouette backwards and lay it off (usually for someone to punt forwards to strikers who are reluctant to make a genuine challenge. Counter attacking football, what is that?

Berra in a 3
at 14:38 4 Feb 2017

Why can't Mick see it. It doesn't work. He gets pulled into places which expose him massively and this is only made worse by the fact that Jonas is neither my ar$e nor my elbow in that system as he neglects his defensive duties and isn't good enough going forward. By all means bring in Taylor but on current form, that should be for Berra anyway. Feel for Mick in general but choices like this baffle me.

Hugill update
at 20:22 19 Jan 2017

You might remember I posted about the Hugill bid about a week before it came out. Not wanting to risk the wrath of Dolly's accusations again but some might like to know the same source has told me the bid is at £1.8 million but has been rejected. Again, make of it what you will. Hope Dolly is ok with this!!!

We were lucky to get nil. An all time low for me in 45 years of support. Physically weak, technically inept and no heart. First half Berra just embarrassing. Butcher summing it up now - "an utter disgrace from Ipswich"

Jordan Hugill PNE
at 18:28 3 Jan 2017

I have never had any information before but make of this what you will. What I would consider a reliable (but 2nd) source from someone inside PNE has told me Mick has lodged a £1 million plus bid for Hugill with top ups taking it in excess of 1.5. Also said that a fair while back a £300,000 bid was made for the same player. Please don't shoot me down, if you've read any of my posts you will know I don't do this stuff - just reporting what I have been told!

The midfield
at 23:03 26 Dec 2016

2 years ago we were looking at possible promotion with a midfield of four from Skuse, Hyam, Anderson, Hunt, Bishop (and later Chaplow too). With the exception of Bishop, we lacked genuine creativity but we had real industry, drive and pressed opposition midfields into submission more often than not. Right now, we still lack creativity but all the positive qualities we had seem to have disappeared. Am I nuts, or are we possibly missing the agression and hard work of Hyam somewhat?

Whatever your view on Mick is
at 20:10 26 Dec 2016

Don't talk complete bollox about him doing the right think and resigning. How many of us would walk away from a contract worth good money cos the job wasn't going too well? Very few I would guess. The decision is down to Evans who will have to settle his contract if that's what he decides. The football is dire, I agree but Mick is a genuine, straight down the line man and like everyone else, if his boss wants to keep him on, the on he will go.
For what it is worth, I think he will limp through til the end of the season when a mutual agreement (contract settlement) will be announced.

Bishop
at 18:03 26 Nov 2016

Mick made it clear a few weeks back that he wanted Teddy in his team but to be fair, he was one of the poorest (and that really is saying something) against Forest and he did not do enough for me against Wednesday either. He needs to be better if he is to command a starting spot and whilst I don't like a Skuse - Douglas central partnership, Bish just didn't warrant the starting place. However, Williams should count himself unlucky not to start as I guess many thought he would do.
