Shocking Irons stat but let’s not be haunted

LEROY (1)I hope and pray the well publicised squad night out this week comes back to haunt the headline writers tomorrow and the boys really turn it on.

I believe there will be a reaction and Slaven’s decision to let them out to sort things on their own over a meal was the right one…it’s the sort of thing that’s happened in the game for years.

Thy need to be angry but disciplined against Middleborough. I read the most alarming stat of the season so far the other day and it was this:

O that the Irons have had more shots against them in the penalty area than any other team in the League!

Slaven will have been doing nothing different this season to last but he’s being let down  by the players and tomorrow they need to be away quickly. They have to get on the front foot from the start.

MIddlesborough will come looking for a clean sheet. That’s the way they set up and the Irons really must get amongst them because they have the players to wreak havoc.

Don’t expect an entertaining game although if we get one early anything could happen although I expect us to edge it 1-0 if I’m honest.

So far we have looked devoid of energy and committment but tomorrow they have to find the edge to turn things around.

These are very highly paid people and it’s why many can’t get to the top of this game. You need to be dedicated to the 100th degree, you have to have that energy and stamina to dig in and turn things ound when it’s really tough.

And all of us should expect nothing less than that tomorrow.

  1. What happened to coyi the moment fishy 247.I could have sworn i saw he commented.Dont tell me the little toss has finally been binned 😉

  2. We wouldnt be that fortunate Rick hehe.You must have been halucinating.
    I will take a win anyway we can get it tomorrow.I really couldnt care how ugly a performance it was for a game or two as long as we pick up some points.

  3. Yep been binned – made several attempts and his last comment came in under a changed e-mail address (hyphen inserted lol) to the one he used when banned five mins earlier. Fair play he tried all sorts of ploys but (rubs side of nose) we always catch up LOL

  4. Sorrry Rick i apologise you were not halucinating hehe
    Im sure he will be back under another name Hugh.If he has been that insistent on coming on here for a year causing trouble with the regulars i suspect he will be back.Silly chap that he is.Well done Hugh im sure the majority of the regulars will be happy to hear he is at least gone for now.Though he is probably already creating a new account the strange man that he is 🙂

  5. Well we can all have a quiet natter at the salon tomorrow then 🙂

  6. I didn’t think i was halucinating,thanks for that Eddie 😀
    He will be back,he is too screwed up not to be.Look out for Stew n Dumplings or Big Mac n Fries.
    The other funny one is paxo.Ever since he came here wetting himself about how good Everton were they aint won a game lol

    • He’ll be frantically setting email addresses up right now so keep an eye out for a loved up Antonio fan talking about his made up girlfriend that likes to tell you how he stinks and who jumps on others negative comments just to drag them into his little games.

      • Yeah & come on here saying he has never used the site before & doesnt know anyone on here or Wetpants because he only ever used Kumb before this lool 😀
