    Match Day - Swansea City v PNE - 22/01/22 - KO:15:00 - Championship

    That second half v Sheff Utd set the bar at new heights of expectation. We, the fans, have known the players have performances like that in them. Part of our frustration has been that the players have not been showing us or their manager what they can truly achieve. Now the management know what...

    Patrick Bauer signs new Contract (Confirmed)

    Glad lessons have been learnt from the last couple of years, but lets not fall into the trap of offering new contracts to existing players if they are no longer good enough, even if their contracts are running down. Let them go.

    Agree, slippy pitch can't have helped.

    Thanks for this. I appreciate the reasons why the striking drill is necessary.........I just wish we demanded accuracy with it. My points about it still valid. It doesn't really matter if the quads are red hot if the accuracy is missing.

    There are youth team players chomping at the bit for the sniff of a chance. .... Not even in the 25 squad yet though.

    The aimless kicking at a keeper.......unless I missed it

    Training and warm ups.

    Warm up v Birmingham was different. For years before matches we have had a trainer/coach laying off ball for forwards/midfield to strike towards the keeper with varying degrees of success. A few would be saved. A few would score many would miss and loads ended up in the AKTE. What good did that...

    Connor Wickham Leaves (Confirmed)

    He must be gutted. Potentially a very good player just let down by injuries. Good luck to him.

    Match Day - Cardiff City v PNE - 09/01/22 - KO:14:00 - FA Cup 3rd Round

    Exactly my point. Good job we don't have the FA cup to throw in there as well!

    One small advantage of being out of FA cup is that we have been able to rearrange the matches missed due to COVID without creating too much fixture congestion.

    I believe that referees are now becoming too dependant on VAR. Officials are completely unable to make decisions that can affect games without it. They are hooked. They are seemingly addicted to power but need the crutch of VAR to operate.
