Anyone got Steve Cooper's phone number?
If legoman wants Cooper back perhaps he needs to follow the team in Legoland
You know my comment is tongue in cheek! If I didn't care what happened to my team, I wouldn't say anything.

When does the sparkling football revolution start please? Is this Martin’s Steve Cooper tribute album? Like when Erasure did ABBA.
And a poor mans version at least the original gave us goals and wins

I'm sure we've done this but here goes.
His number is 1-0 1-0 1-0🤭
And Martin's is 0-0-0-0-0.

64% possession, 4 shots on target each, 12 shots us but 10 them at home. I'm sorry but I don't see the "improvement" that others do. I get the huge change in personnel but those on the pitch know how to play the game, and so the blame lies with Martin for me. We need to start scoring and winning. There is nothing else to say, it's not a difficult game.
Hmmm, possession can be good, but it has to be useful, to tire the opposition, and stretch them. We need to make it count. And create more chances.

Not much faith amongst the fans I see.

Thought Milwall looked more likely to finish stronger

Respect has to be earned the same can be said about faith. That was a very frustrating game to watch. Things may improve but there were very few signals to give much optimism

Yeah totally frustrating I get that but faith doesn't work by earning it, faith by its very definition means to believe in something you ain't seen yet. This season is about staying up. A bitter pill for sure.

Still pining because your shithouse hero jumped ship as soon as the going got tough then?

At least we have someone that chose to be here rather than ran away, whether it works or not. A yellow bellied snake, letting his club down, just like you,

Cue “I’m not..”

This game is about as exciting as grouting.
I know a guy who lost the top of his one of his fingers grouting. It was one of the most exciting days of his life, in fact in A &E, he got so excited he fainted.

I think Walsh showed more in his 20 mins than Paterson did today and was unlucky not to get a goal and an assist. Also we absolutely need to play Piroe and Obafemi together up top from the start, Obafemi was a handful and a thread the whole time he was on the pitch today.

The first half was dreadful. The second half was better and we had more clear cut chances. To be honest we could have easily lost the game in the last 10 mins. Very frustrating to watch.

Christ funny comments on here ,we are lacking fitness you can see it ,grimes absolutely slows us down is one footed and hasn’t the brains to turn on the ball and move it quickly
Patterson had a good 30mins first half and that was it ,downes was immensely impressive for me piroe ran his guts out
Manning like bidwell are poor so far but the one who did nothing and looked poor after a great debut was nitcham
Oh and naught on did well also

Jeez we're still in September, in my mind I was hoping to see signs of improvement October onwards
Everyone says theyre expecting a middle table rebuild this year then lose their minds when we dominate 2 games but dont score
Listen to Guardiola, he says his job is to get the ball into the final 3rd as often as possible and then its up to the players to score, Ive seen signs we're doing that, but a lack of confidence, fitness and cohession is letting us down atm but itll click soon so have some faith

Not the greatest of games tonight and almost exactly the same as Saturday.
We lack any sort of goal threat, we could play for weeks and not score.
Our fullbacks being our most advanced players is ridiculous, both offer very little, Laird offering slightly more than Manning. But still pretty poor.
Our movement in the final third is dreadful, nobody is finding space, making runs or offering for balls other than to pass it straight back.

I think we probably need more attacking players on the pitch. We started with Piroe, wouldnt say any of the others were attacking players?

Needs some work and pretty quickly before the boo boys get right on the players backs.
