Back from the game, and well, i dont quite know what to say about that......

First things first..... last minute winners away from home in the cup are bloody epic, and I dont care who it was against, but moments like that are what football addicts out of us. Absolutely fan-bloody-tastic, the away end went mental.

More rationally, we look very at home at this level.

Defensively we are just a joke. Comical really. First half we played OK, we contained the expected rush early on, put our foot on the ball, played through it pretty comfortably, scored a couple of good goals and seemed to have it in the bag, easy street. It wasnt a particularly impressive performance, just comfortable

Second half, well, we got played off the park from 45-85 minutes. Totally outclassed. They scored two, could have easily been four or five. Just a total shambles of a football team, so, so fragile. Then, at 2-2, instead of crumbling away altogether, we suddenly stepped up about 20 gears, passed it quickly and incisively, nearly scored twice, then did score.

How important will that goal be? We will see. It felt like a big moment.

    • so basically we have some accountants that can make FFP go away as a short term problem?
    • The celebrities probably aren't wrong. It is an alt-right witch hunt. Gunn pissed off a load of alt right clearings in the woods because he's openly critical of Trump and other unicorns of theirs. One of them, who has some really vile and seemingly sincerely held views of his own (and was the driving force behind nonsense like Pizzagate), decided to nail Gunn and dredged up old bad edgy jokes he used to do, in line with his background of making Troma films. I do think Disney have made a mistake bowing to it but I understand why, and they won't be able to back down from it regardless of the backlash.
    • Ah ....Dean smith who has midtable finishes with Brentford and Walsall and concede goals for Fun  - its a wonder no one has snapped him already !
    • Really like Nathan Jones and I could get behind that if we're going in a different direction as I said above. There are a few people who I rate, yet have no idea if/what that can achieve. I'd be excited by a few people though
    • Any of the 6 managers who have been promoted since we have been relegated for start? So sick of these run of the mill absolute piss poor excuses. They don't even make logical sense.
    • If Edens is going to operate the same way with Villa as he did with the Bucks, it means Bruce is gone and he will bring in a "name".  Hired Jason Kidd without the GM of the Bucks knowledge and it was a disaster, but casual fans knew the Jason Kidd name.  No inside knowledge, but it makes me think there are legs to Henry as he has name people will know, especially in New York, where Edens lives.
    • Dean Smith. Gettable. Absolutely is. Much less of a gamble than Henry. Not the sensational choice Henry would be but sometimes that's no bad thing.
    • If you want to gamble\ take chances - then  Nathan Jones from Luton - would take some getting though. 
    • Did the Wolves manager know the English game ? Or even the Championship, for that matter ? No, he didn't, but that was no hindrance to him guiding his team to top spot.
