    Two Grimsby games called off due to Corona...

    We're either playing Bryan on the Wing or playing a 5. Not sure about either to be honest. The state of our defence though.

    Genuinely feel bad for the teams who will be relegated from the prem this season if they don’t get to watch any games at home in the stadium especially if it’s any of the newly promoted teams. Having to watch on a tv screen just doesn’t compare to being inside the stadium on match day in the biggest league in the country. 2020 has just been a bad year all round.

    Us and West Brom fans can survive given we've seen Prem Football quite a lot in our recent history. If Leeds went down with no fans being able to go then it'd be something (and quite funny) but they most likely won't.

    Although there is something to be said for the fact that the last game I went to the Riverside Stand hadn't even started getting properly being built up and the next time I go there's a very decent chance it's fully done.

    Nobody saw that one coming. It's a joke.

    I'm done with this season already. Can't believe we've left signing a Centre-Back(s) this late.

    We signed this decent lad Mawson....

    Mawson couldn't get into this defence... That's how bad he was for us.

    That’s genuinely mental, this lot look utterly horrendous.

    Hector's competent, but Ream and Odoi are jokes. And rather than play one or the other we decided to play both of them because putting in an extra defender who isn't good enough is somehow the solution.

    I'd say we've been comfortable without being really that good. We look like we could score with every counter but our passing has been a right mess

    You don't need to be good to beat us, you just to not be absolutely terrible because we'll literally give any Prem team we play against at least 3 goals a game with this current defence.

    We've got West Brom in about a month, feel like that game will either be 5-5 or 0-0.

    “The manager here doesn’t have just a Plan A and that’s it. When he comes up against different opponents and different ways of playing, he’s capable of changing the formation."

    That is Gareth Evans, former vice captain slagging off Jacket indirectly
    I actually cant remember the last player that left that didnt rip in to Jackettt on the way out

    I just can't believe we're playing AK47 as a Wing-Back in the Premier League.

    Goal VAR'd off to top things off. Take me back to the Championship, I don't like it up here.

    We are prime relegation fodder. And the thing is, anyone who's of a certain standard to actually improve us won't come to us unless we pay them ridiculous wages now because we are prime relegation fodder.

    Sloppy at times but that's a good win. Probably should've scored more considering quite how bad that Fulham defence is.

    2 wins and 2 clean sheets makes a nice change

    Fair to say I'm keeping Jimenez as Captain for Fantasy this coming weekend.

    I had Emi Martinez in my Fantasy team before last weekend but picked T-Rex Arms Pickford instead- and that's gone well.

    I wildcarded Martinez in, about the only good player I've had this week along with DCL

    Also Tony Khan effectively saying he's happy for us to be a Yo-Yo club is sure to endear himself to the set of fans who are deadset against him (I'm not, although this window is pushing me there).

    Thing is he clearly enjoys his Wrestling more than being a DoF and he's not even been in the UK since the start of the pandemic from what I can tell- so I don't know why he doesn't just let someone else more qualified to do the job do it. Apart from ego. If he was anyone other than Shahid Khan's son he'd have been gone after the last relegation.

    Villa sacked their DoF for a similarly bad window and they actually stayed up.

    Fully expecting Tony Khan to tweet Carragher about this. He's so easy to bait because he has such a thin skin and puts himself out there so much.
