Match Day - PNE v Derby County - 16/10/21 - KO:15:00 - Championship

Never gonna happen but King Billy sigh.
Can't imagine a King Billy team turning in a shocker of a performance like that.
Say what you like about Billy, his teams were always imaginative, highly motivated and tactically he was as sharp as a tack.
Yesterday was inept and embarrassing - we looked a yard short of fitness too.
I really hope Frankie can light the fire again, but this could be a defining week, especially if if the unthinkable happens next Saturday.
We desperately need a win against Coventry - but play like we did against Derby then it will be certain defeat at Bloomfield Road.

More like my school report as provided by Miss Little at Blessed John Southworth 1966.. ‘A thoroughly lazy boy when he bothered to turn up’ teachers told the truth in those days .seems like the PNE players could do with a bit of truth in their reports.. (p.s I went on to be an award winning teacher)
Made me laugh that ! Me an all.

I didn’t have anything to smile about during the game, but as I was trudging my way to the exit at the end of the game, I afforded myself a little smile as we we all left to Ed Sheeran singing bad habits! Very fitting.

I thought Alan Kelly summed up the match perfectly on Radio Lancashire. We were the home team but you would not have thought it until the latter stages.
More ambition and self belief definitely needed.
I read with some amusement today {Sunday], reports that Rooney was furious with the ref for not awarding a couple of penalties......... He must realise that penalties are only given for non existent fouls and accidental handball when attempting to get out of the way, to so called elite premier league teams at home. This league is the real nitty gritty and for the he needs to get his head out of the clouds where cuckoos live.

He wasn’t the only one from the starting midfield who did nothing yesterday, why Whiteman wasn’t playing from th star is beyond belief.
Agreed but he’s been shite for ages imo, never been a fan. I thought Browne was the best of the 3 yesterday but that by no means indicates that Browne was good.

Browne was intermittently effective when he got forward. So was Johnson. Neither was consistently atrocious but neither imposed themself in the way players of their experience should do. We badly needed a 'Gregan' yesterday - Whiteman is just about the closest approximation we have.
