disppointed to see kanu start again, he should have played a part...but from the bench - i think we might have missed a trick by not starting with more pace in the shape of utaka or nugent. but hey ho!

Agree, Kanu could replace Crouch later, use Nugent/Utaka up. Need something boys. They can mess up at the back & we need to take advantage & shut up at the back. Am I expecting too much?

by paying them 1.5m-2m i would have thought we have? they would get nothing in the summer so that would be better than nothing... also by only signing a 6-month contract he keeps his options open in the summer - i would 'assume' we get first option if he wants to stay, which i could maybe see you know?

Evening. Glad to see 4-4-2. I'm not too bothered about the Kanu/Crouch combination, Kanu more than did well enough to justify his place on Tuesday. Disappointed about Pele, and very disappointed about Lauren being on the bench. This game is "quay", as we need to turn around our form - how about some luck today?

since TA joined we got a nice penalty win against sunderland and 3-2 last minute goal from davis against blackburn (when they were rubbish) at HOME. for me, tony adams is absolutely rubbish as a manager, i support the team, but i dont have to support the manager, he has cost us (regardless of the lack of form for the team) and i think he has about 3 games left. if we get a good result against pool (draw or win) then he gets an extra life. if he says "i have a lovely bunch of lads, they battled hard" today im literally going to throw up.

hmmm... we started both halfs well, came flying out, and created chances. The subs were all the right decisions - but we were unlucky with the penalty shouts, and distin/kaboul looked like they hadn't met each other. ever. I think we need to bring in someone to just sit down, and work with the defence, and get them to play as a unit. last season, I think tony had a lot of time to do that as assiant manager - this season, we don't have an assistant manager, and I don;t think we are spending enough time looking at the defence.
