Oooohhh. It's naughty to slip in the "teams like" comment.
I disagree. You don't have to beat anyone comfortably to win promotion, unless were talking goal difference.
You only get 3 points whether you win easily or narrowly.
Plus, winning is hardly a bad day at the office.
Seeing as we were so ***** today, can I ask how many saves Davies made please?
I think we are playing far too compact a game. Too much tippy tappy in tight areas where we were giving the ball away. We had 5 men in midfield but Bristol were first to most of the loose balls. The midfield don't look as if they have a decent tackle in them. The midfield were walking around when we had possession and no one was making runs until Thiam was brought on. It looked like the players had an invisible rope keeping them 5 yards away from each other. There was far too much playing facing our own goal so when a ball was played into feet it was played sideways or backwards again. The only good thing is we got 3 points but we must try harder.
Reckon they have a WhatsApp group? “just been on the bbs seen miserable twats been moaning about me again”
We were mediocre today. For us, in League 1, at home against Bristol Rovers, who were unfortunate not to go home with at least a point, given where they are in the league and where we are in the league, given the optimism about finishing in the top 2 that we've had on here, given the cost of our squad, the resources we have, the fact that we kept our players from last season who only just managed to get relegated, given that people post statistics on here about how many chances we've had and how we ought to be superior, then I may well be entitled to think that I might get a decent performance form my team. Or at least be better than Bristol Rovers in more than just the result.
I didn't. And I posted as such.
Oh get ******.....not playing well...out of form and ground out a win.....best 3 points of the season......sithi.
You are perfectly entitled to ignore the larger picture.
We may have good players, but their all very young, and are playing every week against older and more savvy players. Take Tuesday's treatment of Dougal by the Shrewsbury midfield as an example.
People talking about top two is just talking about top two. Yes we'd all love it, but it was never a given.
It's a tough league. We're one of the better teams, hence why we're averaging 2 points per game, but it's not going to be easy. We'll lose and draw games and win without playing brilliantly like today.
I just don't agree that today merits a thread like this. It's another 3 points and we move on.
The larger picture is we won and you're moaning.
Agree about the short passing around midfield. Also noticed Pinillos and particularly Cavare were much more hesitant to push high up the pitch today and give us that extra width? Wonder if it was a conscious decision after the previous two defeats to be more cautious? As scrappy as it was, I think we created the clearer chances, and defended ok, getting plenty of blocks in and actually defending the set pieces pretty well.
Must say though mate. I thought Mowatt showed some lovely skills today. Beat several players before Moncur tackled him in the first half
Also, McGeehan did a decent job with the ball in the holding role.
They're coming...……...in two weeks
Yes, fair comment, I thought Mowatt was winding up another shot when Moncur stopped him!!
I just thought the midfield seemed to have little outlet today resulting in scrappy passing. That said, we set off really well and deserved the goal.
I think we're going to find a lot of spoiling tactics in many of our games now, we need to stay resilient and earn the right to play our own game and then try and impose ourselves.
Also think we shouldn't underestimate the change that Stendel is trying to embed on the team and the personnel. We set off brilliantly and I don't think it's a great surprise we have some inconsistency now in our results and performances. A lot of factors like the inexperience and young age, embedding the style of the head coach, managing expectations etc. We seen everything - good, bad and indifferent so far, sometimes in the same half of a match. Hopefully we're still in or around the top 6 by January and take it from there.
Today's result was just what was needed after the last two away games, particularly Tuesday, which in my view was as bad a performance collectively as the Millwall defeat under Morais. But the league table suggests we're getting more things right than wrong.
We’re grinding wins out now and that’s what you need for promotion .
Portsmouth were under the cosh at Wimbledon other week but managed to grind a win out of it .
Not saying we were under cosh by any means but we managed to grind a win and that’ll do fer me
Who would you keep?
Today was awful. I can't watch sixteen more games of that. People defending it are either in the thrLl of footballers or blind. One of the two.
My mates blind. He wasn't complaining.
It might be simpler to look at it in terms of who might be able to cut in in The Championship.
Cos then you avoid all the contract stuff.
Anyway, I'd keep Lindsay, Pinnock Dougall and Moore.
From today's showing admittedly I'd keep none of them (Dougall gets a free pass due to injury).
16 more 3 points? You can't watch that? You ok?
