    Watford v Rovers Wed 21st Oct 7.45pm

    Paul, I always look out for your posts as I think we are on the same wavelength but tonight although playing well going forward, I think defensively we are very poor and can be picked off far too easily. I hope you are right and we will get into the top 6 but alas I fear that until something is done about that defence albeit in terms of personnel or set up then we will really struggle to beat inferior teams on a regular basis.

    We look ok going forward but defending we look like the railway tavern on a Sunday morning. This problem has been going on far too long. Something needs to be done and done quickly. People are talking about top 6, but if nothing is done about that defence in terms of personnel or set up then I am worried about bottom 3.

    Half time team talk from Watford manager. Right lads, just attack them down their left side.

    Sunderland are a basket case. We are better than Sunderland and I couldn’t care less about them.

    He did deliver but let’s be honest promotion from league 1 was the simple bit for a club of our stature. We where up against the likes of Shrewsbury for heavens sake. He did get us into mid table safety but some of his decisions have been abysmal when playing players out of position, how many right sided players did he play on the left? I believe now we have a squad, at least on paper that can compete, so having got his recruitment sorted, he needs to deliver, otherwise he will be on his bike and quite rightly.

    Very different season to come. Mowbray gets what he wants (more or less) Venkys put another 18 million into the club presumably to keep us afloat over Covid but also to cover salaries for our new players. For the first time, Mowbray now needs to deliver.

    I think that is a tragedy, with the recruitment of a half decent left back who is able to defend properly and who will balance the team, I honestly believe we can make a challenge. Sure we will need luck on the injury front but any team promoted does. This coming year with what has happened and money being scarce for every club, then now is the time to risk a gamble and go for it. In any walk of life, successful companies have always taken a punt at the correct time, and while others struggle then I believe now is that time. Have our owners and management got the balls to do it?

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    Today was good and we can only play what is in front of us. However, anyone who has played football knows, we need a new left back for Two reasons. 1 We need better defence in that area when pressure is on, particularly when we are playing better teams than Wycombe. 2. We also need to improve the balance of the team, without the need for central defenders being pulled out of position to cover in that area.

    That looks more like Bryan Douglas. That man has so much talent

    Houston, I think we may have problem?

    We need a left back and a central defender urgently. Yes we will score this season but we will concede. If nothing is done, I can see us shipping 60+ goals. Tony, it is time for defenders to come!

    Hi Chaddy. If we miss out on players who have been identified and then negotiated with, once, twice maybe, then that can be called unfortunate. However, when it goes on time after time over a long period of time, then there is something extremely wrong. That could be down to poor negotiations, it could be down to not selling the club to the said individuals, whatever, it strikes me as just poor management, nothing more nothing less.
