Dust Up & Die Again - Something Like That?

Well there was a game in our recent disasterous history, it's a quiet day, I suppose I better say something about our manager's thoughts on it.

Official Site.

Paul Lambert believes we have to dust ourselves up and die again before we entertain Newcastle - and at the moment, yes we will be their entertainment won't we. Fair enough he didn't actually say that.

'It's not great, but you have to keep going. You take your medicine, pick yourself up and go again. There's no way you can lie down. I don't think we deserved to lose it, I didn't see that coming.'

He then blames individual errors of individual players for the loss.

So to save everyone some time, just remember what PL has said following every game recently and then you won't have to read it again.

He also says we bossed the game with the possession, before repeating himself that individual errors are costing us.

Which I suppose is right, I've just looked at the stats again (and wished I hadn't) and yes we 'bossed' them by 4% in the possession charts...quick get your streamers, dust off the party poppers and prepare to get jiggy with it folks!

4% let's praise the footballing Gods!

Even better than that, we also had more corners, fouls and yellow cards...happy days!

Sorry is sarcasm still the lowest form of wit?

You can tell why I didn't do this Friday night, it's possible every fourth word may have been one from a dictionary.

Unfortunately though our bossing of the game didn't translate into anything that could resemble being mildly useful on a football field.

Damn those chances, shots on target and pesky goals. If only they didn't count eh.

PL then talks about tiredness, the Premier League being the most important thing, and well frankly, I can't be arsenaled to say anything else.

Millwall Match Thread for the masochistic amongst us.

I'm off to take my medicine like he said.

As of yet there is no further update on Fabian Delph's injury.

I totally avoided doing it, well done for taking the time! Lol.
The Fear
Instead of blaming single individual errors, why not replace them, or put them on a strict training program to fix them errors. We have no width to attack. Albrighton; is he still @Villa. I still think Bennett left midfield would be good. Maybe tell Lowton to attack defenders not just run and cross or get someone to link up with him like Baines and thay P....r Do lol
HolteEnd89
Notice that Liverpool, Spurs and Norwich (to non ******** league) all got knocked out by lower league opposition. Do we think that their managers should all be apologizing to all the fans??? ***** the cups. There's so much at stake in the league that they're nothing more than an afterthought!! individual errors ARE costing us and that's because the players aren't good or experienced enough!! Randy has allowed the squad quality to reach record lows.

Good shout re: Bennett HE89 - he certainly ain't no full-back. But doesn't look too bad in forward areas. Bring back Warnock then.

Still feel sick about the Bradford game, which in my view, was there for the taking. I believe that if Weimann had started we would have won. I know that looks simple, indeed simplistic, but yes I do believe it was that simple.
Forest Hill Villan
I hear you Forest Hill, Im still angry about that game and had no expectation of us beating Millwall. What does concern me is that if we did get relegated, what assurance do we have that we could bounce back up - none, I think we could be there for a while. Its the managers job to motivate players and come up with a game plan. If the players dont react to what you teach, you change your style of teaching/ replace the players. As Walters said in his account of the Bradford game - it wsa playground stuff.

It's amazing what you'll suffer JF when *****s on ice is being watched by your better half!
mike_field
I agree with HolteEnd89. These individual errors he goes on about... If we had big enough squad, we could drop that particular player for a few games (like in the old days...Lol) but our squad is so lightweight he can't afford to do that. It's crazy and only getting worse. Thanks Lerner!!!!!
