Way too good for this league.

Normally starts a little later than that.
They really outplayed and outhought us in the first half, completely cutting off the supply to Morsy. Nice corners for a change, though.
Ladapo and John-Jules looked good. We always seem to get decent new players yet still labour a bit.
Their no. 5 was excellent.
We were good in the second half. I don’t think Morsy misplaced one pass or layoff – apart from his chance at the end.
I can’t even see what minute it is on the new board.
Good atmosphere at the start, big crowd, some decent performances. Might be a successful season this time round.

for some reason or other. Against Germany, no less.
Keep hearing “Musiala” as “Nsiala”. Which is a nice thought.

|Fun way to end the season today|

Beautiful weather, big crowd and some grand football.
One great move (which Bonne should have finished) in the second half where KVY, Burns and Celina pinged it around like a pinball through the Charlton defence.
I have a soft spot for Charlton as I lived there many, many years ago. It was a good atmosphere.
Really liked KVY as a super-attacking centre back. Could be very useful for those games where the opposition sits back. KM is good at this tactical invention.
I’d try and keep Bakinson, Bonne, Celina and Thompson, although I guess the last one isn’t going to happen. Perhaps the others or some combination thereof will 🤷🏻♂️
Oh yeah, Norwich were relegated lolz and Everton are in the scheisse.
Here’s hoping for a successful season next time round. We are due one.

|I really like Morsy|
at 19:46 22 Jan 2022
Didn’t see the alleged incident. Considering AS’s approach of bundling us over whenever, ganging up on the referee and going down injured every 30 seconds, it’s a bit rich to moan about Morsy.
Morsy likes these matches, I think – he’s certainly someone you want in them. He was having a joke with one of the the AS players who’d wrestled with him just before they got a corner.
He’s a really good player who always shows for the ball and drives us forward from midfield. Be great if he got a goal in front of the North Stand so we’d start getting right behind him.
|Hard work that|
at 18:32 22 Jan 2022
Against a pretty horrible, everyone-six-foot-ten, brazenly time wasting Accrington. Away support 131.
Still, we won.
Celina really doesn’t belong in this league. Morsy did an awful lot of work.
We couldn’t handle the long ball stuff, or play through their fairly basic pressing.
Oh yeah, Walton made a world class save to push the ball onto the crossbar in the first half. Having a really good goalkeeper makes the world of difference.
6/10, but fairly entertaining.
|Decided not to go last minute|

Was a surprisingly tough decision. My son (16, double jabbed, but only as of today) is going.
I maybe overthinking it!
Looked busy on the drive in, so a big crowd still, I reckon. Just hope everyone enjoys the match and keeps safe.
Good to see Burns back.
|Liking the leftfield McKenna and Pert appointment|
at 08:39 17 Dec 2021
Was kind of hoping for Warnock in a bid for promotion, but this is suprisingly leftfield for me, and we have gone down the experienced route recently to catastrophic effect.
Be good to see a different style of play. I felt that Cook wasn’t really that different from Lambert. Slightly quicker, and with better players, but way too much sideways passing and little pressing.
Any Bielsa influence is fine by me.
Also perhaps marks the end of us betting everything on the manager. This has got to be a good thing.
My only fear is that it’s more a kind of “trendy” appointment from Ashton; as in all the “modern” clubs have this structure and a young coach with new ideas, but it turns out he can’t actually manage a struggling L1 team.
Still, quite excited all in all.
|Was that it?|
at 17:15 15 Dec 2021
We know that.
|So we’re agreed. Warnock til the end of the season.|
at 11:25 9 Dec 2021
In a bid to get hold of this squad and in the play-offs/not sliding down the table.
While he’s in place get the young/hungry/tracksuit/tactical/project/right-culture manager ready for next season where, hopefully, they get a full Championship pre-season to get up and running.
