    For some reason my commentary hasn't worked from the off and I've had no option to turn it on. Been rather peaceful.

    Don't know if anyone else caught that at the end, but Lenihan clearly said to Kaminski (I think), "that's my fault today" or something very similar.

    In that case, what did you think of Holtby's "dive" for the penalty? Clever play to draw a foul in dangerous areas if you ask me. Whilst they might have been looked for, none of them have been dives.

    Arma should have been carted off for Dolan but he seems to get a free pass. His body language annoys me at the moment, he just doesn't seem too assed

    Why Brereton off? Unless he's a bit gassed out? Mowbray baffles me sometimes.

    You're not alone in contributing almost nothing worthwhile to the discussion? You're correct there. Any comment on Arma's performance today? Since you have had so much to say on BB who has been head and shoulders above him.

    You pick up on every little mistake he makes and yet never comment on the good things he does. You're also notably absent when other players do the exact same sorta bad touches that warrant comment on BB. Seems you clearly have your biases and it's rather tiresome.

    Mowbray will sub off at least two of Elliott, Brereton and Holtby before that happens, mark my words

    Dolan has lost the ball almost every single time he's got it, as well as silly turns in dangerous areas, but no mention?
  10. It must feel pretty shite being in his position as he's desperate to make an impact but has largely been limited to cameos. His goals to games ratio looks poor but the vast majority were sub appearances, and when he's started sometimes I think he's been unlucky to be brought off. I thought he'd done more than Holtby to warrant staying on vs Bournemouth for example, but found himself sacrificed (today I thought Holtby was superb for the vast duration of the game I might add). When BB had that little link-up and good strike from distance today, he came alive after that. I think there's certainly some self-belief lacking there and he's trying too hard to make an impression on the game, when he might be better taking a leaf out of Rhodes's book and lurking around the box. Arma hasn't done much of late for the team but he often pops up when it matters, alas not today. We can't forget, we were largely up against Prem-quality opposition today, second string or not. We struggled to find chances even with our better attacking/creative players on simply due to them being hard to break down. Just one of them days for me. I'm disappointed to see us lose but, not to be Mowbray-esque here, we'll win more than we lose playing like that. And for the record, I'm usually a pessimistic bastard.
  11. I do wonder whether this is through his own choice, or by instruction. He certainly seemed to drop deeper following the introduction of Arma. Was this due to legginess or his natural game or Mowbray's tactics? Hard to say. Personally I think he's done more good than bad when he's played and has fallen victim of very little penetrative balls from our players in more creative positions. My criticisms of him would be, like you, winning headers, being in and around the six yard box and like some have mentioned his hold-up play is hit and miss atm. He needs a bit more strength and tenacity drilled into him, a la the DG of old. He's started bulking up though and I'm hoping once he adapts to this extra weight and builds his stamina he can become far more effective in this sense. I've mentioned this before, but I'd say bar the goal on Saturday, Arma has contributed far less to the team in recent games, and I'm a big fan of AA. I think BB is desperate for a goal and is somewhat forcing it, dropping deeper to try and get the ball and force the play, when maybe he should stick to being in the right positions, but again, whether this is his doing or on training/manager instruction, I do not know. He has shown some good touches and linked up with the widemen well, but then can be prone to the odd poor touch and hasn't found anything for himself in the box. I truly think a goal to settle the nerves would see the best of him come out. For me he offers far more than Gallagher does, despite being a good 3 years his junior. Maybe I'm wrong, but I see a player there, it just doesn't seem to be falling for him atm. Personally, I have faith. I'm sure we all hope I'm right!
  12. As per your edit, I believe we'd used all our subs by this point unfortunately. Not sure what minute it was but I'd guess somewhere between 70th and 80th. I think Travis's "run through a brick wall and carry on regardless" nature can be a hindrance to himself at times. It looked to be a bit of a nasty one from their lad imo. He knew he wasn't getting to the ball first but still committed to following through. I'd have to see it again, but looked to be missed by the ref/seen as a 50-50.
  13. It was the challenge up on the far touchline, not sure who against but imo it looked quite dirty from their fella, who clearly wasn’t getting to the ball but came in late anyways.
  14. I personally think you are overly harsh. He’s shown more than JRC in recent games. Same age. Bar Arma’s chance well created by Nyambe and subsequently converted, BB’s done more across both games. Football is all about opinions though, you’re more than entitled to yours, I just disagree
  15. The fee paid hangs over his head, or should I say around his neck. 21 years old and played well but getting compared to 30+ year olds Varney and Brown. It’s idiotic at best.
