G's a big fan of the new setup.
fair play to him. I don't think the new set up will be here for long personally but you'd be moaning no matter what we do if we don't win, you've no regard for the fact we're in a tougher league, have a comparably low budget etc.

Lol paterson doesn't look too bothered..
I thought that, still a bit weird though. Sexual assault in another job. Imagine if I grabbed a woman’s genitals on national tv without her permission. In fact now I say it like that, what the fuck. Wonder if he’ll get done...

to be honest I don't think anyone does, just some of the moaning pisses me off.
I honestly can't understand how people who said at the start of the season they'd take staying up by the skin of our teeth are moaning when after 12 games, if the league stops, we just stay up by the skin of our teeth!

We all knew it would be a long hard frustrating season, we knew we were going into it with players who probably couldn't cut it at this level, so why are we suddenly expecting different?
How dare you be realistic.

So another week goes by where we do not slip into relegation zone and the gap does not widen to the teams above


But hey keep the faith lads. Broken clock time could be next week

WTF is going on with this Preston defender today v Sheff Weds. Surely he will pick up a ban for this? Arrestable offence anywhere else?

Confused?
Maybe it's the Mo in November brought it on?
Mofo or Homo,I don't think he knows.
Village People iconic moustache?
(Qualifier a la BBC ) Other straight icons were also known to sport bass broom stylee moustache's during this era .

It won’t be by circumstance. I can’t see Dabo playing in the week and he won’t play pask at all or Giles as a fullback

Why no one can see the benefit of keeping a clean sheet given the leaking defence we’ve had is beyond me

A clean sheet is an obvious plus, I just think he went about obtaining it the wrong way. Hamer was taken out of the game in that setup, the full backs couldn’t get forward and Walker who is patently not a lone striker was left to feed off scraps. As others keep saying teams will still manage a few good chances even if we pack the midfield and if those go in then we’re a bit stuffed. We won’t score often enough and relying on nicking 1-0s is unlikely to bear many fruits.

You characterise it as going balls to the wall 4-3-3 but if we can’t score we won’t win

Could look a better point by full time tonight.....
Can't just compare how you did that week compared to how everyone else did in that week. All it takes is one week for results not to go our way and we'd see it as a disaster, when in fact it'd possibly be a result like Birmingham when everyone else didn't get results that was the poorer than a tight loss and performance against a good team but everyone else around us won. If we'd approached that brum game with more purpose we could now be feeling a bit easier having pulled ourselves more into contention with the mid-table teams.
