Re: Contract expiry

I assume we could always sign a goalkeeper on an emergency loan if necessary.

Re: Contract expiry

All the best, Ben. A reliable part of the team which gave us two end of season pitch invasions.

I still don't know what I think about Bridcutt playing at centre-back but he's been very good today.

Although they're more nervous than we are, which is something we should try and take advantsge of. The first goal will be huge.

Re: Parkinson's disease. Sunderland (A) 26.12.19 3pm KO

We've done quite well, with a few bright spots here and there. Arguably, Darcy should probanly have scored but then they might equally have had an equaliser. But we're awful at set-pieces. Just awful. Considering who they're managed by, and how many free-kick's we've given away, it's hard not to thi...

Re: Parkinson's disease. Sunderland (A) 26.12.19 3pm KO

Is Chicksen injured? On bench. Iles described him as dropped the other day. I'd have thought it'd have made more sense to persevere with him if dropping him means we have to shuffle our back line to such an extent that we're having to play our most creative available midfielder at centre-back. (Ass...

Re: Parkinson's disease. Sunderland (A) 26.12.19 3pm KO

Out third goal was a pure fluke in terms of gift-wrapped at a time they were pressing for an equaliser. Pure fluke? Outrageously harsh, Tango. The only fortunate part of it was that their lad slipped and gifted Murphy possession. He still had the not-so-small task of carrying it a third of the way ...

Re: The North and South of it......V Southend at home. 3-0'clock Sat, 21-12-2019.

A very unconvincing performance, but a win's a win. An internet pint for whoever can guess the last time we won after conceding the first goal. Norfampton at home, 18/03/17 (ie a quarter of a decade ago) Alfie pengie than a winner from Phil Morais, whose release catalysed our downfall, but that's a...

Has a manager ever got a booking before?

I've known them be sent off but never to be yellow-carded.

So many misplaced passes and miscontrolled touches. They aren't doing it on purpose so it makes me wonder if we're trying to play a way we aren't suited to. Rather than attempting to get through teams I think we'd be better off just getting it wide high up the pitch as quickly as possible.

What I find incredible about today's fixture is that despite us having been beaten 5-0, 5-0, 5-0, 6-1 and 7-1 this season, and despite us having scored just eleven league goals in return, our goal difference is still better than theirs.

By the way, has it been reported anywhere why Hill didn't pick Wright?

Re: A very Posh affair, hope it keeps fine for it. Versus Peterborough away 14-12-2019

Intriguing game. Didn’t look like the teams would be two divisions apart next year. For some reason Posh changed their usual shape and dropped/rested their usual No10 Marcus “Not That One” Maddison. As it happened that meant they played a back three, like us, but with subtle differences, and not ju...
