Watching this is like death by a thousand cuts.....

For all the possession, we never looked like scoring, let the season end for god's sake....

Hugill is tailor made for Wet Spam next season in the championship

Let's hope 50 points are enough....

The "training" matches were ominous but nothing to worry about for some...

Roll on season 2020/21
2019/2020.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....

Contrast our 'performances' with how Brentford have played since the restart. Sadly this is what happens when a supine fanbase accepts mediocrity.....

So it's the fans fault? Guilty even in absentia....

Yups just watched the replay and he should have scored.

Whereas you continue to heroically hold the board and the management team to account by [checks notes] sniping periodically at other fans on message boards. Really sticking it to the man there, Albert. I bet you used to skip your fares on the bus too, back in the day. Keep fighting the good fight.

Really?

I think the biggest blow was Wells leaving. He was clearly happy at QPR, and was working well with our creative players. We haven't replaced him.

I think Brizzle bought him thinking he'd score the goals to give their play off chances a boost - dream on.

Brizzle paid £5,000,000 for him, we couldn't afford that or anything near. That is the problem.

The support was poor to be fair. I didn't go myself, but couldn't even hear us on the commentary.

..yes...losing Wells has been a big blow....he complemented Hugill perfectly up front....fast, skillful and always knew where the net was....

Yeah, I'd agree that was a big moment in the season. Not so much him leaving, as we had no control over that and no prospect of buying him ourselves, but letting Mlakar go at the same time and not bringing at least one striker in for the rest of the season. The Jack Clarke situation is also baffling. We didn't use him much before the lockdown, then extended his loan, and yet he hasn't played a minute in the last two matches, even when we were chasing both games with the option of five substitutes. Something odd going on there.

The last two performances are what our happy-clapping fanbase deserves. What are the excuses for struggling to muster a shot against two of the worst sides in the division? They have even less money than we do - and Charlton's board were even worse than ours.

I see that Warnock is already doing what he does at Boro - of course he wasn't good enough for Ferdinand, was he? Why are you so accepting of this persistent mediocrity? I honestly can't see us getting another point this season.

What are you doing about it, though. You continually present yourself as different from the "happy-clappers" in our "supine" fanbase, and yet what does it amount to ?

As for the "won't get another point all season" routine, it never ceases to amaze me how many fans watch football for decades and yet never cop on to the fact that it isn't predictable. If it were, we'd all have stopped bothering many moons ago.

I'm pointing out why mediocrity is a self-fufilling prophecy. We had an outside chance of the play-offs before lockdown - now we're more likely to be dragged into a relegation battle. That's what a lack of ambition does to a club.

Ferdinand wasn't at the club when Colin was sacked (first time)
Colin said he did not want the job when he was caretaker manager (when Ferdinand was there) possibly as a result of his experiences the first time.

But hey! Why let the facts get in the way of your agenda of prejudice against Hoos and Ferdinand.
