I'm not evening looking at Fulham now tbh. They'll finish above us. Its Brighton who are our main concern. Tomorrow and next Saturday are absolutely massive. Two wins for Brighton and we're gone.

Warren Barton on TalkSPORT talking great stuff - worthwhile going back and listening to it 22:15 onwards, doubt it’ll be a Jamie O’Hara hot take or Jim White exclusive stuck on their YouTube

 

Players thinking From day one we need to grind out results, is that what you think of me?

 

One fight too many for Bruce. He feels like worlds against him, but fans just want a side to go out and be on front foot and play. Doing himself no favours.

 

With Bobby, taking over from Ruud, didn’t have the greatest players but he but us in best mindset. Would never go away to Southampton and think we can grind out a draw here.

 

Jonjo Shelvey doesn’t warrant two players around him doing running for him. He’s doing nothing on the ball to deserve that.

Brighton have finished strong the last 2 seasons to scrape out of the relegation zone....fully expect us to lose to them next weekend....we’’ll need 38 points to survive...no way is Bruce going to get 10 more points from the last 10 games....I’ve already accepted relegation.

The player's willingness to slog on and get a point just gives me a glimmer of hope. That point might just be the difference between relegation and safety.

2 goals conceded in 3 is better. Defence could be key. Clean sheet at Brighton could be massive.

 

I would play Carroll against them as they are certainly a threat from set pieces.This is one game we cannot get beat in, yet if we did win (if Brighton get beat off Southampton) could just about seal staying up.

I’d like to think Bruce has learned from last time against Brighton not to even consider Carroll. Murphy, Fraser & Gayle surely.

Surely last time was more to do with Lamptey absolutely tearing us a new one.

We’re not losing games but we have to start winning. We must beat Brighton, Burnley & Sheff Utd. Unless we pluck an unlikely win somewhere else along the way (I don’t see us being capable of beating West Ham or Arsenal), they’re the 3 biggies.

 

Aye, this tbh. I thought we were gone once we went 0-1 down. Still deflated af but not losing games (albeit not winning the fuckers :lol:) is not the worst habit to get into. I do think we'll need an unexpected result from the rancid fixtures left now though. Arsenal, West Ham and Leicester do tend to have brain farts v sides they should be beating.

Hopefully Gayle through the middle from the off with Fraser and Murphy in the wings. Not Gayle out wide for an hour with Fraser through the middle like tonight.

Carroll’s an absolute carthorse. I don’t rate Gayle but he’s the best of the evils. They play three centre-backs, seeing Carroll lumber about getting to the defender too late committing fouls will be painful. Play Murphy & Fraser out wide, they’ve got the energy to counter their wing-back system but also cause problems, use Gayle’s mobility up top.

I do agree, but tbf I thought Carroll would've been useful tonight if he came on 25 minutes earlier with the amount of crosses we were putting in the box.

I think he’s more a hindrance. The amount of times you see him challenge for balls in the air these days a fraction late and he flattens the CB giving away a foul, or he’s trying to close down the outside CB or FB when they’re trying to play it forward and he gets there too late, or just his general clumsiness all round with aerial challenges, I’d sooner not have him.

Do you really think he’s going to drop Joelington? Or play Gayle up front? He hasn’t so far and I don’t think he will next week either.

I think the way things are, setting up to be as solid as we can and trying to nick the odd game 1-0 is our best bet. I don’t see Carroll coming into this set up and doing that. We’ve some rank awful players but Carroll is barely a footballer anymore.

We’ll see next week, I think he will play due to Bruce being worried about their threat from set pieces.
