Wonder how many games Swansea have unconvincingly scraped a 1-0, Norwich got a ‘lucky’ win or Watford have bored the shit out of everyone and scored a 1-0 win with a pen etc

It’s what you need to do tbh, esp with players not on top form

We were berating them for losing out to Millwall in a similar game and not holding on to something against Brentford - I’m more than happy tbh

I thought Olise was outstanding today. Ejaria very good too.

CountryRoyal An important 3 points but I have zero confidence in our manager now. Hopeless man.

Joao is on a poor run of form. We have Puscas back available. So what does he do?

Gives Puscas the grand total of 27 minutes of football across 4 games and continues to run Joao into the ground.


If Joao ran as much as he sulks and waves his arms around you’d have a point.

Noone is really that stellar this year. It is frustrating - we've had bad results against Wycombe, Boro, Millwall, Birmingham, Stoke and Preston this season.

If just two of those were turned into wins, we'd be right in the automatic promotion hunt.

We won!

And I didn't go through the 90 minutes of anguish and frustration.

This works for me

Looking forward to not watching the next game :)

It`s actually more enjoyable following the game on here rather than the agony of watching it. :D

Think the comments on here are a bit negative to be honest. There were some players out there who put in good shifts. Olise was the pick, the Rotherham commentators saying ‘we never nailed him down,’ Ejaria played well, Richards at least looked interested today, Moore and Morrison mostly solid, Yiadom improved. What impressed me today was our game management in the second half, much more intelligent than of late. Rotherham never really looked like scoring in the second half although they could have in the first, but we missed some very good chances as well. Well done all.

Agreed with the first bit about the effort. Disagree about the second bit.

Think Rotherham looked increasingly likely to get an equaliser and all they needed was a slightly different bounce of the ball and it could have been completely different. That deflected shot deserved to go in for them and it so almost did.

On paper it looks great - brought on defenders and saw out the clean sheet. In reality we lost control of the game with little to now outlet up top and allowed an increase in pressure which we managed to get away with this time.

That’s the way I see it tbh.

Yeah it wasn’t great but we won. As NR said Olise and Ejaria were good. Why is Rinomhota playing there?

Only Pauno knows. Shame if he’s out for a bit as we will never know if he could have turned into Dennis Bergkamp.

If he is out fingers crossed it’s not for long but at least this way we can stop persisting with him as an attacking midfielder.

Ejaria/Olise/Aluko for Blackburn please. I’d start with Puscas too.

CountryRoyal They just described that foul on Olise as “shoulder to shoulder” :lol: :lol:


To be fair, they then saw replay and immediately stated it wasn't and therefore was a foul. I'm enjoying the away commentary teams, less overtly bias (OK, one today was trying to will the ball into the net for Rotherham but fair play to him) and often better informed and therefore able to make more insightful and relevant comments than our resident pair.

Felt somewhat liberated just watching it via SSN and occasionally checking in on the whining in here

Not sure Ifollow works that well for me - smallish screen and the comms annoy me.

We held onto a lead, which we’d fail to do twice in the run. Didn’t make changes at the back like we did vs millwall. Beat the kind of physical team we’ve struggled with this season

What lessons do you think we should have learned?
