I think the criticism of Pants for the 5 goals last night is harsh, can't really fault him for any of the goals. But as for the defence in front of him they were awful and can be blamed for 3 basic errors:
1. No challenge at all against Abraham's on two of the goals, Not sure what Dawson was doing? With his experience he should at least have been in a position to challenge for the headers.

2. Not closing players down when in the last third and committing to tackles when 'jockying' was required.

3. Having no clue when the Villans ran at us ending up with us making wreckless challenges.

Fair due to the Villans for having a go when 2-0 down as they had clearly done their research on our weaknesses. At times I could not watch the game as our defending was so poor, AK must be having nightmares! Unfortunately other teams will have seen this.

We don't just need a new keeper but a new defensive 6 if we are ever going to get out of this league. And bringing back Fox will not help.

For real the man is 6 foot 8 why isn't he claiming any cross into the box abraham was in the 6 yard box for 2 headers and he was still on his line he wouldn't even need to jump to beat him the air several kicks straight out handing possession straight back to them, why has he been number 2 at most clubs he has been at says it all

2.) 30 Nov 2018 06:35:05
Red James I’m guessing you’ve never been a goalkeeper with that statement.

3.) 30 Nov 2018 07:26:23
So he didn't spill the ball for the second goal??🤔🤔🤔
His job to organise his defence from free kicks and at least come for some,not stand still on his line.
His positioning is awful and is quite simply not agile.
He doesn't inspire confidence in the defence or the crowd

4.) 30 Nov 2018 08:09:44
Agree with all the doubts about pants, not sure what Sutton was meaning why don’t you explain ?
I was a centre half and when a taller quality attacker gets a run on to a good cross there is only a couple of things to stop him, getting close putting him off his jump and balance or the keeper takes 1 or 2 strides and punches the ball clear. Pants is massive and has got no excuses, he simply doesn’t command his box. Dawson did need to get closer and Robinson was also poor. But in the box the buck stops with the GK. Defenders are constantly caught in 2 minds unsure if the GK will come off his line.

5.) 30 Nov 2018 11:00:11
Sutton no never been a keeper but seen plenty take one step off there line to catch or punch the ball to safety or the very least out the striker under pressure, but maybe your right staying on line giving the striker the whole goal to aim at is right keepers seem to manage to collect crosses we make so why can't he

6.) 30 Nov 2018 11:51:09
When you think about it pants is 6foot8 add his arms say 9 inches then he jumps in the air he must be 7 foot 6 and still can't get the ball very strange !!!

7.) 30 Nov 2018 13:19:15
Agree pants needs to stop being pants someone like Randolph only six
Two ,saves plenty and comes out to catch many a few crosses as well we should consider a keeper like him . Big pants is a giant overstretched fumbling baffoon , who is slow and weak because his neuro-physical make up is similar to a clown on stilts swaying about trying to to maintain balance never mind being a goalie .

8.) 30 Nov 2018 13:40:05
Pants was rooted to his spot for a couple of the goals which was a bit embarrassing to watch as a fan. For a man of his stature you'd expect him to command and dominate the box, but he's the exact opposite. He plays like a netball player, as in one step, and if he can't reach it with an outstretched hand, it's a goal! I'm afraid his goalkeeping will cost us points this season.

9.) 30 Nov 2018 18:25:50
1st goal was Robinson not stopping cross n daws got underneath the ball 2nd goal was a bit flops from whole team even grabs could of gone have it, but whacked it straight at Villa player 3rd goal Robbo should never of dived in, stay on ya feet make sure cross don’t come in simple 4th goal again can’t defend free kick 5th goal was well worked by villa

10.) 30 Nov 2018 20:35:04
Remember Paul "Smudger" Smith! He s 6 ft 4 and I never saw him come for a cross. Reminds me of Pants. Needs replacing. Peter Schmeical was similar build but God help you if you were in his way when he claimed a cross.

11.) 30 Nov 2018 22:00:32
Spot on stokey,he didn't last long,pants is worst I've seen,said so last season and should never have signed him,bit I wouldn't hold your breath on him being replaced, he shouldn't be playing tomorrow but he will.
Don't think for one minute karanka will bring another goalkeeper in, feel sorry for steel as he must be wondering how bad pants has to be to get a chance?

12.) 30 Nov 2018 22:17:23
You know what they say about big feet?
And he's got big hands as well.
Definitely a big dick when it comes to goalkeeping and his name is PANTS to prove it.🤔

13.) 30 Nov 2018 23:06:54
Pants is indefensible. He is utter crap. Said it all along, stays rooted to his line, an utter clown. He never ever comes fir a cross. The worst goalie i have ever seen.

14.) 01 Dec 2018 22:56:11
Please go and watch those Villa goals again. There is no way any goalkeeper would come for the whipped in crosses headed in by a very good centre forward. He was just better than our defenders on the night!

15.) 01 Dec 2018 23:18:21
Go chill on the lake!
If defenders are set up to defend the 6 yard box then the keeper should not come out.
Just because he is 6'8" it does not mean he will win every ball as he will get blocked off.
Focus on his shot stopping I can think of only one goal where he has been chipped?
As for the worst keeper what about the Serbian Beast?

16.) 02 Dec 2018 14:24:21
Just read all your posts about Pants and agree with a lot of what you are all saying,so what do you want AK to do,bring steel in,ok I’m ok with that,but if that happens and it fails and we loose the game (it could be against the sheep)who’s going to take all the flak.wont be you moaners,can her you lot saying now,you don’t change a winning team AK would get hung drawn and quartered by you lot.
We all no what have in Pants and it ain’t that good but in my opinion he's the best we have until January so let it drop a bit ay

Great to see Roy back, he's even shaved his beard off so he must be serious!


1.) 29 Jan 2019 09:09:25
Superb to have him back get him to work with osborne and yates right away.

With his knowledge of being a top notch box to box midfielder he will surely be able to bring these two lads on.




11 Jan 2019 20:18:15
Anyone for Stevie G as the next manager? Doing a good job at the Teddy Bears.


1.) 11 Jan 2019 20:33:07
Erm. No

2.) 11 Jan 2019 22:06:25
He's going to slip up eventually.👍

3.) 12 Jan 2019 08:53:59
A Scouser as OUR manager?!



04 Jan 2018 23:18:15
What about Slaven Bilic as a management contender? Good track record at the hammers until they hit a bad patch this season. he is a true socialist and plays a red Gibson in a rock band. Ticks all the boxes for me.




28 Aug 2017 09:28:11
Remember Rangers fans saying MW has no plan B. The Leeds game was a good example of this, Leeds played a good pressing game and we had no answer to this whatsoever. We should have tried something different even if it was using the long ball up to Murphy who is good in the air and looking for the knock downs. Every team in the league will now know how to play against us so we need to quickly come up with a different game plan.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 09:48:05
He changed against barnsley. He wants us to play football on the deck not hoof ball. If every team knows how we play as you say, we now need to play hoof ball every game. Too many players had an off day. It happens.

2.) 28 Aug 2017 10:04:49
Agree Redfin , one bad game against a very good side that everything went for them isn't a disaster. We weren't exactly over run or embarrassed by them.
When you look over the last 12 months where they have come from and where we have , we are doing ok.
Can't transform the team over one summer.
The football is great to watch and very intricate.
Sometimes on a bad day it just doesn't come off.

3.) 28 Aug 2017 10:59:11
There's a thin line between hoofball and picking a pass - look at Fox's ball for Cummings' second goal against NUFC. That was a brilliant long pass. There's nothing wrong with hitting it long with a purpose, but playing in triangles without going forward looked clumsy sometimes against Leeds. We'll still finish top 8-10 so no worries. COYR!

4.) 28 Aug 2017 20:30:15
Should have gone with fast balls down wings and through channels. Playing through middle and slow build up didn't work, Leeds were to physical and organised but a lot of players did have off days.

I felt if we had hit balls over the top or down the channels for McKay, Brereton and Cummings to run on too we might have had more luck but we didn't deserve anything, just hope as a team we learn from it and MW and the coaches can sort it so if another team comes and stops our passing game we have alternative ideas!

5.) 28 Aug 2017 23:04:36
Theres nothing wrong with mixing it up I agree. Play on the deck and then throw in the odd long ball. It can catch a defence out. But we must not get dragged into pumping it long for murphy all the time.



08 Apr 2017 11:46:52
Check the BBC website, our game today is listed under League 1. Clearly the Beeb have already decided on our prospects for survival!

What amazes me is that Fawaz had a plan B when the takeover fell through which must be a first for him. Also I would love to know who got all these deals done so quickly and efficiently when GB was involved in the game last night.

The person deserves praise as we have never had such a successful window. Still sceptical about Fawaz's long term intentions but he deserves credit for last night.

Our accounts are to the end of May so the Antonio sale will not show until next year. Not sure how FFP works and whether we can show we are currently within the FFP rules?

Hi Ed, don't think Britt suffered an ACL rupture but broken knee cap. Whilst still serious it's totally different from recovering from an ACL injury. I ruptured both ACL's in my late teens without them being diagnosed. Your body does adjust as I'm still playing footy at 61, albeit 'walking' football.


{Ed001's Note - it is not totally different, it still has the main issues mentally with changing the way you move the limbs to avoid injuries.}

Lots of Trees at Edgbaston to watch the T20 final today who should have stayed in Nottingham to watch the footy as Notts with all their so called stars were rubbish. Northants with only 16 players on their books and 2 of those injured were superb and shows yet again you do not need to splash the cash to be successful.

I love CC's attitude, wish more of our players had such determination. From a personal perspective I ruptured the ACL's in both knees which were only diagnosed 40 years later. Didn't stop me plating footy though and winning quite a few trophies albeit in lower league footy. Fell over a few times though!

The money Fawaz has put into the club are short term loans and not equity. The loans can be called in at any time but as the club is insolvent to the tune of £8m it has now way of repaying the debt other than by selling players. In the corporate world it is unusual for a company to be trading whilst insolvent but then again this is football.

You can also argue that SP just did not have any luck in his last couple of games. The third Fulham goal was a wicked deflection and Britt missed 2 sitters in the second half. The Milwall defeat was down to an individual mistake. Meanwhile DF starts off with bags of luck against Brighton with JL saving us at the end in a game we could easily have lost. I think its a real shame that SP could not have been persuaded to take the the DoF role (and not been offered it after he had been fired!)
