  1. We’re absolutely cursed with injuries it seems. Won’t get promotion with this many out. Gibbons’ hamstrings made of glass.
  2. He kicked at least one straight out of play, miskicked one that barely made it to the halfway line, and also miskicked the one that led to their corner for the goal.
  3. Great pod as usual, but must disagree with Jonny - Stone’s kicking was abysmal.
  4. Nope. That’s one reason why we’re buggered at the moment. Got an unfit Wilson and our two other best strikers out injured.
  5. Yes he was playing very well before injury, people have short memories.
  6. I would just like to put something in context. Our best 3 strikers at the club, I think everyone would agree, are Proctor, Wilson and Rodney. All 3 got injured, 2 are still out and Wilson is nowhere near full fitness. Any club in this predicament would struggle.
  7. I noticed that about throws. No one shows for the ball, we take an age to take them, and more often than not lose the ball. Dreadful.
  8. Clarke’s change second half made us worse where he took Pett off. We completely lost the midfield and resorted to hoofball..
  9. I must say, I do find it odd how people have gone into meltdown after a handful of losses. You’d think after about 5/6 seasons in a row of almost getting relegated (with one where we did) we’d know how to deal with a loss!
  10. Oh bore off. Find me a manager who’s never gone on a winless streak ever in their career please.
  11. I agree it’s Covolan’s fault for not playing. But Stone takes full fault for the goal for me. Had absolutely loads of time to pick a pass and does that instead. If Covolan made that mistake there’d be uproar.
  12. Absolute crap second half, the change with Pett off made us worse as we lost the midfield. This also clearly showed to me Covolan is the far better keeper than stone. Stone made a dreadful error in giving it away needlessly under pressure, and then caught in no mans land when the ball came in. Oh, and Martin is absolutely *****
  13. Hope Hall isn’t out too long, he’s looked decent so far.
  14. Pretty sure gibbo ‘holding his groin’ was actually from him being hit in the you know where
  15. On other note, looks like we’re set for a pretty poor attendance tonight. About ten fans in the away end!
  16. You’re right - very bizarre decision. Hopefully doesn’t backfire
  17. Can’t believe these clowns texting radio stoke - how on Earth is Clarke under pressure. I really do hate our fan base at times. Also once again, this isn’t a ‘big game’. There’s over half a season left - are you going to say every single game between now and then is a ‘big game’.
  18. I understand the calls to drop Wilson since he was so ineffective, but he’s never going to get match fit again if we don’t play him. Has to play for me.
  19. And I don’t disagree. But he wouldn’t have started a game this season. So it’s irrelevant whether it was him or Johnson warming the bench. And we sold Johnson for a fee and there’s no way in a million years that would’ve happened with Brisley. So it’s worked out well for us.
  20. Don’t be silly. Assuming we got no draws in your scenario, that would put us on 83 points - that would’ve won the league last year.
  21. Who knows what will happen, we could turn absolute rubbish between now and end of season. However, in current circumstances we are still in a good position so no need for panic stations yet
  22. Pointless. Wouldn’t have played any more than Johnson. By selling Johnson we essentially had a free squad player for a few months. And I seriously doubt Brisley would be on less than Johnson. Brisley an established football league player versus a young lad first time in the league.
  23. We did make a profit if you look at it from a different perspective. We needed a back up centre half for that time - if not Johnson then it would’ve been someone else. So we would’ve been paying someone wages regardless. Instead we’ve flogged him and got the money back for him. Essentially had a player for free for a few months. Good business.
