    Has anybody thought about this

    We have now beaten, on their own grounds, the only two teams to have beaten Man City in the league this year? I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry.

    The season has been a farce and some of the players should hang their heads. The writing was on the wall when Chadli refused to go on the pre season tour. At that point we knew Pulis had lost the players respect and a new manager should have been drafted in.

    After today's result the rest of the season is a bitter pill to swallow .

    ........or the Belgian “Surrender Monkey” shipped out Tout Suite!


    Has anybody else realised just how big a factor not beating Swansea has now become?

    A three point swing would’ve made it just a tad interesting in the next month.


    I’ve never know a team throw away as many winning and drawing positions as we have this season.

    People told me to “chill out” on here after the third match when we gifted Stoke the late equaliser but my mentality is different to a lot on here......I see the pitfalls way in advance and every late equaliser or winner against is extreme danger for a club of our type.

    I was the same Mick when some of the posters said we had the best squad for years I used to think your havin a laugh , Stoke & Watford for me got the alarm bells ringing + the biggest factor for me was not having a couple of decent goal scorers or my be one who could get your 15 to 20 goals , & just the lack of quality in the team a team devoid of pace & creativity.

    One major factor was losing a very good captain and leader on the pitch in Fletcher and ending up with Evans. Our best games have been without Evans on the pitch. Daws organised us at the back today and showed whats required.

    Personally I didn't think he was a great loss had a great first season after that fell away badly for me , not really set Stoke alite ether.

    Dawson is a “top” character.

    I’d bust my balls to keep him this summer and make him club captain.

    He doesn’t strike me as the type to agitate for a move,it took him a long time to break through with us and he never moaned.

    Him along with Foster,Brunt,Yacob,G Mac and Morrison are the heartbeat of our club and I want these characters around next season.

    I also think J Rod is a really good character and a major goal scoring threat in the Champ.

    Again Mick I with your on this absolutely keep & make Dawson captain , & for me
    J Rog is a must keep , a better player
    than Matej Vydra who we had on a season long loan & I think he is the leading goal scorer in the championship .

    Couldn't agree more. Just hope that we can manage to hang onto these players, plus Hegazi, as they could be the backbone of a successful Championship side.

    Dead right. I will be amazed if we keep Hegazi. Love the guy but so do many other clubs and commentators. Gets mentioned a lot every week.

    Not totally with you on this. I do agree that the players mentioned have been great servants and are the heartbeat of the club. I also believe Dawson is now our best player along with Jay Rod and I would try to keep them and hopefully we will, along with Hegazi and Gibbs.

    However, as Fergie was always quick to identify there is a time when the players need replacing and I think time is up for several of these great club servants. I don’t see Yacob or GMac being first choice even in the Championship so I would let them go. James Morrison is all about fitness - will he be back to full fitness next season, if not let him go. Foster and Brunty I would keep.

    We need to be more ruthless and not just in being quicker at sacking Managers.
