  1. Happens to much

  2. What also happens too much is giving away penalties &getting red cards. There is an article about our bad record on red cards & I have seen a stat which I think showed us joint worst last season for penalties. These three things all point to poor discipline & have cost us dearly in the last two seasons.Lack of discipline is not just about training ground punch ups & players going out on the dazzle on match nights. The question is- who is to blame for this? Are we just unlucky in having players who cannot concentrate for 90 minutes & who can’t control themselves? I don’t think so..

  3. Blame lies with Carroll. He should be fined two weeks wages.Sick of Carroll. Total indiscipline from him and from Arnoutavic for his elbow at Southampton. On the plus side Carroll’s out for a game, forcing a change. My fear is that Slav might do something silly with the formation.

  4. So we are worst for red cards, worst for goals in last 5 mins and we are also the most likely team in the division to make mistakes that lead to goals, we are also probably more guilty than anyone of playing players out of form or out of position, the owners should look at that if we aren’t where we should be come December.

  5. Were also the team who has the most decisions against that are wrong ?
    By some considerable distance as well lol!!
    Refs in the prem are predominately from north of Watford and are bias / cheats in fact , west ham are the least liked team from London in the game , you only have to listen to pundits to confirm that !! The stats don’t lie . Leighton banes did exactly what zabba did at the saints and nothing given , Carroll gets smashed in the back of his head with an elbow and nothing
    But he does it and its noticed ! Cheats !!!! 😤

  6. Maybe it’s linked to the fact that our percentage of possession is amongst the lowest, coupled with the fact that the opposition has the ball in our box far more than we can manage in theirs? So we spend far more time chasing and tackling, meaning we are more likely to give away cards, free kicks and pens? Perhaps if we tried hanging onto the ball a little more?

  7. As well jimbo , but take the manc ,s !! We make that tackle on coutinio by Herrera and its a penalty !!! Its how it is 😉

  8. We saw the same failings with losing late goals under BFS, altho’ we have scored some late goals ourselves. The fault on Saturday lies mainly with Carroll but it was the manager who must take the blame for not instilling the correct discipline (with Carroll and with the whole team for not getting defenders (e.g. Cresswell) to close down wingers to block crosses) and for picking Carroll in the first place. Glad to see that Carroll is being fined for the red card
