I'm going to suggest that the Fleetwood game will be a turning point like after the Luton game last year. I reckon Matty Taylor will be fit for Saturday, and Ageyi and Thorne also ready for game time, Woodburn back, Baptiste getting fitter, we're virtually at full strength.
... or the late James Brown ... talking loud, saying nothingTo quote Talking Heads "You're talking a lot, but you're not saying anything."!
While any communication is good, there's very little meat on those particular bones.
PS Not implying ST is a Psycho Killer!
Me and Tiger making the exact same point only 12 hours apart!
My cover is gonna get blown at this rate!!! ?
Yeah, and both basically say nothing new!
The only prediction that’s guaranteed is you jumping on fans who dare say anything negative about your club!!
The questioned I’d ask is, why have we made similar mistakes as last season? e.g. not fully addressed striker situation, got players in who are not match fit/ready meaning we have to hopefully play catch up AGAIN.
Oh, and is this the Chairman’s vote of confidence communication?
You're becoming a little boring, but I'll indulge just once.
The striker situation was addressed with the deals for Matty Taylor and Dan Ageyi, and even Woodburn who plays off the striker. Unfortunately, Taylor got injured in his second game, Ageyi is building his fitness as expected, and Woodburn has missed the last 2 games. These things happen, but unfortunately they have happened at the beginning of the season giving an opportunity to throw out comparisons to last season.
As for players not match fit or ready, that only applies to Ageyi and Thorne, both of whom are pretty much good to go and will give us a virtually full strength side, expect for Napa.
Other differences have been that we have gone from a fairly solid defender in Sam Long to a mauradering wing back in Chris Cadden which has made us more vulnerable at the back, and Cameron Brannagan is pushing forward more which is leaving us more vulnerable through the middle. Of course, both Cadden and Brannagan have looked better players for this, but we haven't the set up to give them both a free role along with whoever's plays at no.10.
Both of us (myself and Tiger) have spoken about players coming back from injury and the need to dust ourselves down and go again. Is that not an accurate account of where we are?
As for playing catch up, of course we have no where near the points we would want, but we're 7 games in. Beat Tranmere and Bolton and things look a lot better. Go to Lincoln with a fully fit squad, a bit of confidence and eradicate the stupid mistakes, and who knows? Christ, we might even surprise West Ham!!!
So, things haven't been great, but football can change very quickly and there are reasons to be hopeful. That's why Tiger isn't giving the dreaded vote of confidence, and why I don't think it will be needed.
Sadly, this is so true. Here I am sitting on the terrace of my holiday apartment in Crete (rented) reading, and responding to posts on the forum when the sun and sea beckons. That's because I, and Mrs Lounger, already belong to the converted. The targets will be those who would not be interested unless, we were winning, were entertaining, offered a day out worth paying good money for or all of the above.i'll keep saying it, the target audience are not those already attending
Good point (the preaching to the converted, not the beckoning Greek ocean).Sadly, this is so true. Here I am sitting on the terrace of my holiday apartment in Crete (rented) reading, and responding to posts on the forum when the sun and sea beckons. That's because I, and Mrs Lounger, already belong to the converted. The targets will be those who would not be interested unless, we were winning, were entertaining, offered a day out worth paying good money for or all of the above.
That target audience probably won't even read the update. Come to that, some of them wouldn't even know where to look!
