For what it's worth you wouldn't be missed if you do go down so don't beat yourself up over it.

I have just looked at our fixtures until end of the year?I can only see maybe maybe 3 winsand a couple of draws.Let say 12 points + the 8 we got=20(i am good at maths) then look at rest of fixtures to end of season= totally in the s***.Looking for a big reaction but all i see is a damp squid.Come on you reds please come on

Morning all, I was flying back during the game, well, took off at 2040 so was in my seat annoyed the plane didn't have LiveTV....turns out, it didn't matter because I didn't want to see us raped in such an inhumane way.
I watched it, in full, yesterday morning on repeat when we'd landed though. I've never seen a team defend so badly and become so disinterested so quickly. Genuinely shameful but unfortunately the issues start and end (in my opinion) with the board.
Rumours the dressing room has been lost - not sure I believe it. Ralph is the last person I'd want to get rid of at the club, I think there needs to be a clearout in defence, as there has been for about 3 seasons.
We're cannon fodder this year, the promoted sides look reasonably competent and other strugglers from recent seasons are capable of picking up points. We've secured 1 point at home this season, if that isn't championship form, I don't know what is.
If we do go down, next season I'm assuming you'll all want me to continue being the life, soul, comedian, intelligence and greatness of this thread?


Whilst back in Blighty and managed to see us look alright (at times) at Wolves. Great stadium btw, but very, very, very old.

Who is in the VAR control room today for the Norwich game?
1st penalty decision not a penalty but Krull did step off his line before the save.
2nd was a penalty but again to the letter of the law Krull off his line again.
Neither save was reviewed by VAR.

Typical performance from us. Go ahead, sit back and keep our fingers crossed. Why Eriksen was on the pitch I don’t know. Rose is done, Toby not much better and as soon as I saw Aurier flailing around in the box I knew a penalty was on the cards.

Christ alive we need some new players.
