    Lerma did ok, I wouldn't want to have to use him there all the time, but he did ok. Unfortunately he was sold a hospital pass and it was either a red card foul or concede a goal. Stacey's fault, again.

    We're missing all of our first choice back 4 currently and having to experiment.

    You're probably right .

    Can't see Fergie ( the safest job in football ) getting the sack when most people in the football world & his past record at this level show he's out of his depth ( but a DMac yes man ) & he hasn't been helped when our recruitment is mostly players from lower or non league hoping to find a gem to flog on for vast profits & or when his number 2 leaves to go to West Ham he gets an inexperienced back up albeit a cheap option.

    No one's relegated in December but I fear a long hard season ahead .

    Good to bounce back today. Morison is doing well overall so far imo. If he can ease us clear of relegation this season whilst bringing young players through I don’t really see any need to look elsewhere.

    You have more chance than us mate tbf, but today we let you have ball all game and you had 12 shots with 2 on target we had 10 with 3 some of your passing was neat enough but it reminded me of us a few years back, no end product, which surprised me as you usually can score under Fergie. I hope you survive mate, as for us?...I'm getting past caring now.

    Sickener for us today and the luckiest point Coventry will get all season.

    We are ****ed for Friday, our injury (and suspension) list is awful.

    That's a bit harsh on a decent enough Cov side, but the way we're losing players at the moment and the impact of the storm in those latter stages today does make you wonder, what next? The river Thames to rise up and sweep Solanke away on Friday maybe?

    Wonderful to see the parachute clubs slipping up and not having it all their own way for a change

    Yes but needs to be more consistency behind them to get under real pressure .

    Wasn't intended to imply that they were a bad team but it was an absolute freak set of events. We win that match 99 times out of 100.

    • A ridiculously stupid red card when we were well in control of that match
    • Ibsen Rossi totally messing up that header that led to their goal
    • An equaliser that was a total fluke

    could have gone for a 2nd yellow for a foul on Van Den Berg later on as well, haven't seen any of the game back yet but the ref was awful, was far too inconsistent, one moment he's stopping the game because someone has gone down, the next he's letting play continue, also, the Fulham time wasting was so obvious and frustrating from the moment they scored yet only 1 minute of added time in the 1st half? then the Fulham number 6 (who was constantly time wasting and should have had at least a yellow) had the cheek to start complaining about us slowing the game down in the last minute after Fulham had time wasted for much of the game

    Well that’s the coldest I’ve been in quite a number of years, unbelievably cold.


    Shite game, absolutely breathtakingly bad officiating yet AGAIN, getting beyond silly now.

    Take the point then never ever try to think of the game again.

    Something about Bournemouth when they played derby smacked off being far too arrogant and think they lacked a leader in the middle of the park. Maybe pearson is that because he wasn’t playing. The first goal that was scored was annoying from a derby pov but the way the Bournemouth player celebrated with a samba like dance - not keen on that.

    still think the top three will get promoted to continue the trend of parachute payment clubs to yo-yo between the leagues

    Fair play to Fergie for trying something different today & trying a few Under 23 players but we're devoid of confidence atm & can't see much changing tbh .

    Am surprised how far you guys have fallen , I know the Chewing Gum Kid's left but your owners aren't short of a bob or two .

    Ironically , the electrician was voted man of the match today :D

    Yeah we had Kilkenny & Cook start in the middle today. Against you Kilkenny came on for Cook.

    Both are talented but also far too lightweight, they were okay today but I think it really cost us when we were trying to hold on. Cook is only recently back from a very long injury and it shows because I think he's been really poor, especially today, but I'm not going to give him much stick considering how long he was out.

    Ultimately I doubt we would ever been playing those two together and at yours Pearson would have definitely come on instead of Kilkenny.

    The angle of this isn't great, but I can't see how this could possibly be onside.

    Is it correct that 3 Bristol City players were booked for time-wasting in the first-half?

    It was a proper battle at the KC. I thought we edged it and the scoreline reflects that.

    No words to describe the turnaround, really. The change in shape and formation has worked well. With goals and wins coming now, the confidence is growing.
