I don't think the conditions helped the midfield as the goalkeepers and
centre backs were all adopting the "hoof-it-high-&-long" tactic to try
and use the wind to their advantage.  Unfortunately this meant that our
midfield looked like they were watching a game of tennis with the ball
going left & right above their heads.  In better conditions I think they
have the ability to get the ball down and control the middle of the
If we could get another Mancienne on loan from somewhere then I think
we'd be sorted.  He had a certain poise and composure about him that
made him stand out.  He wasn't coming across arrogant but he was
strutting like he was in control of everything (which for most of the
game he was).

Morning Marcus,


What's this talk about going up? I think you are being a little
premature, remember what happened a few years back when we were 11
points clear of the Baggies?


As for the defence, yes, we have been leaking a lot of goals but I would
also be pointing the finger at centre midfield. Just by watching Jones
in the last game against Cardiff it appears to me that he goes "missing"
for too much time during the game. Henry had an okay game but not one of
his best.


Mancienne looked very accomplished and showed some classy touches. Hope
he stays in the team and improves further with more games. With him and
Stearman we now have the very quick centre backs we have all been asking


In regards to the Keegan tactics I would much rather us play this way
than we did last season! 


Great to get a bit of luck for a change as well, Cardiff could have had
2 penalties on another day.


Roll on Birmingham for our next TV game!!

has anyone noticed that there are only 4 teams in our division who have
conceded more goals than us?  Fortunately at the moment we are able to
score more than we concede but surely this tactic isn't going to work
when we're in the premier league.  I think we need to start reinforcing
our defence now for when (a) our strikers hit a rough patch (b) we get
