  • wykikitoon changed the title to Brighton Rock Suckers v Jones who puts out the Cones

Anything will be a bonus tbh, it's a free hit basically. Will be interesting to see how Jones approaches it. Will he continue trying to shut up shop and trying to sneak a win, or will he put out an attacking formation to try to impress the watching Howe? 

If it was me I'd park the bus tbh. We aren't going to match Brighton for football yet, might as well go with the hit and run tactic. Brighton aren't the most ruthless finishers, we could hit them on the break and sneak something as long as we don't concede.

No game is a free hit given how far into the season it is, how few points we have, and where we are in the table. It's very unfortunate how long it's taken to get a manager sorted, if indeed Howe sings tomorrow as expected. The one good thing is that at least Villa lost again, and they seem to be in a bit of disarray at present. A win tomorrow and we can be three, four points from safety which is obviously a much healthier position than another loss and six, seven points from safety going into the international break. Of course I won't be holding my breath for a win tomorrow given how Jones has set us up in the previous two games, and the form of the respective teams.

Turning oil tanker would be my guess.

The Oil Tanker. You guys ought to get more involved in the match threads, full of foreigners, old folk and acronyms - they're a joy to behold.

Conesy. :lol:

 

I like Jones and think he's had a positive impact on the team, but I feel like he's not good on the big picture versus the smaller details. In other words as a specialised trainer he will be good to have around but is a way off having the arsenal to manage a side. So I hope he stays on and works well with Howe and his team. Listening to Howe speak he sounds intelligent, reasoned and articulate three components sorely lacking in our former manager. Jones was brought in to help the deficiencies in Bruce's capabilities but now the shoe will be on the other foot and Howe will have the same effect on Jones.

TBF, the Saudis will have switched over to another game by the time the protest starts if Jones starts Krafth and Fraser again.

If we change up the team they I can see us winning today. Brighton have won 4 from 10 this season. They aren't 1970 Brazil like some of the press are making out 

Brighton have 16 points we have 4 from 10. Agreed Brighton aren't 1970's Brazil. But they're head & shoulders (knees & toes) above us.
