I had my first shave for 3 weeks during the 2nd half. I was beginning to look too much like Kenny Rogers
Was it your face or balls you shaved... :shock: :lol:

Reminding me of watching Monk's side at the moment. It's a pretty awful watch, but then the nerves that come with the pressure of pushing for top 2 kind of override that. I'm finding it draining just watching, so god knows how the players feel.
This is a very good point. With everyone else winning, it feels like every time we step on the pitch it's a must win. It must have a massive effect on a young inexperienced bunch. As you say, it's doing my head in watching it.

Its at that stage of the season, no matter how we are playing, it has to be a "must win game" as a cple of clubs re now showing form.

Well, face obviously or I'd have posted a picture of Kenny Rogers' balls wouldn't I, you prize plum. Assuming I could have found one on the internet of course! I wonder if anyone ever searched Google Images for Kenny Rogers genitals? :D

I thought today we were dreadful for the whole match and deserved nothing never mind 3 points

Would be good to see a passing accuracy analysis as most our players would be in single figure percentages ..

Our midfield has real issues , can't see how you can play Hourihane and Grimes in the same side, Fulton for all his battling qualities lacks any link play and creativity and was a poor passenger today. Smith offers us something different and Dhanda gets bullied out of games so our strikers get scraps of service.

However.. we keep winning which is strangely bizarre, we play route 1 football and we have a very good back 5 ...

We are missing midfielders who are creative bullies and we seem to see them in most teams we play against and we are seriously lacking a MGW type midfielder or even a Leroy Fer presence and we do get intimated out of the midfield battles often on fitness levels too.

But the table position and results are there, Cooper can defend himself while we are still competing at the top so this is one very strange season no doubt

Love the guy, had more clubs than the average golfer, but its not worth complaining to the officials after the decision is made.
