A few things i am not liking at the moment
Players getting visibly annoyed with each other on pitch, throwing hands in air, the argument about the penalty in the Hull
Game, the discontent from the players being subbed as well, I also notice summerville letting everyone know his name when he scores, it's about him not the badge or the club . I'd drop summerville out the squad totally as to me I think it's a bad influence and I think is eyeing a move .

Bang on the money Mighty re Summerville.

16 Apr 2024 03:56:09
Play him while we’ve got him but he does come across as an arrogant egotist. Big fish in little pond, if big boys come with the loot he will fade into obscurity. Look at PHILLIPS, lost years of his career trying to slide in above his level - but then if you were offered his kind of loot wouldn’t you . Summerville is quick and small but a couple of outings against some Italian or German defensive assassins and he will slow down.

It does make you think that something has gone on behind the scenes that's possibly caused our bad form since the Watford game. Remember the palace game where something happened at half time and we got battered 2nd half. I'm staying positive (we'll try to) that it's just a bad patch) , which has ended and we'll be back to our best for the next 3 games ?.

16 Apr 2024 08:03:27
Good point raised, I got slated on here a few weeks ago about pointing out his body language and attitude, and I stick to my opinion.
Whilst I like him as a player, and don't get me wrong he has kept us up there with his goals, he is always one touch too much. He hardly every makes the right pass to a player with much more space and time, just tries to bring it on his right foot and shoot. His body language just screams disinterested to me, and maybe he has had offers, but if so you would think it would incentives his game or could it be that they have said you're not for sale at any cost, and like Elivis, he's caught in a trap.

16 Apr 2024 08:10:45
Well let’s just get rid of one of our best players because maybe his attitude might not look quite right to a few fans and he points to his name on his shirt when he scores one of the many goals he has scored for us season.
I give up!

16 Apr 2024 08:22:43
Op that's definitely not what I am saying about Jimmy, it's more to do with what i see when i watch him play, is it a potential behind the scenes issue that may be affecting him. I really like him as a player, and yes he is certainly one of our best, and to reiterate my post his goals have been invaluable.

16 Apr 2024 11:46:53
Dougie, i just think he’s probably an over confident immature cocky kid and there’s a lot of them I’m sure in professional football.
So long as he is giving 100% working for the team and scoring goals he can have whatever look on his face as far as I’m concerned.
The great thing about Jimmy he’s still not the finished article in my opinion, there’s potentially a top top player in there and I hope to God he’ll prove that with us.

16 Apr 2024 12:30:53
Few things,

All footballers are arrogent, you have to be to make it. To train hard and believe you can make it there has to be an air of arrogance. The name thing when scoring is what players do.

This behind the scenes stuff…. Give it a rest, this is not another o’ Leary killing the club with a stupid book, it just pressure

Leeds, Ipswich, arsenal, Liverpool and lesciter are all feeling it at the moment… so is there a problem at every club? Course not so don’t put things there

Football is a hard game and pressure is a killer in any profession or walk of life.

It can often come down to luck. Like all teams above we played poorly against Sunderland but unlike every other club we was cheated with two clear pens.

Had we got them pressure lifts and maybe we beat Blackburn and go up as champs.

Pressure is everywhere, teams getting cheated is just at leeds

Long live farke.

{Ed025's Note - you make some valid points there Bermo..

16 Apr 2024 14:20:17
Completely agree Bermo ?.

16 Apr 2024 14:38:44
Why long live Farke bermo?
What’s that got to do with your post?
Thought your post was about teams getting cheated and luck.
Weird post mate.

16 Apr 2024 14:39:37
I hope it is just the case of us reading too much into it. Clearly, as things have gone off the rails a little, players are reacting in different ways. I think we would be equally surprised all the same if the players were behaving as if every was still going swimmingly.

A good result at boro is obviously important, but it might lift the mood and attitude for the last two games.

16 Apr 2024 14:58:46
OP good luck trying to. get an over confident cocky its all about me in a Revie squad with King Billy as captain at the helm . his attitide/ cockiness would NOT even get him access through the gates.

Summerville is the antithesis of side before self . so absloutely bizarre and uber contradictory of you OP given your posts over the years that you revel/ have no issue with it.

16 Apr 2024 15:26:27
Aus my long live farke sign off was just a sign of in my show of support for our manager. Who for me is the second best manager in my lifetime

So your right it was odd in context but not odd in sentiment

I would post long live lukic but he has retired so that would be really odd

That said…
Long live lukic.

16 Apr 2024 15:43:20
Some great points for sure Bermo.
Baz, those days are long gone for football I’m afraid to say.

16 Apr 2024 16:01:20
Bright even modern day did Bielsa ever play Summerville?

16 Apr 2024 16:04:27
Baz, I don't think O/ P says he has no issue with it; he is not making it out to be as bigger deal as some. Quite frankly, my opinion is that CS has his mind elsewhere promoted or otherwise, but deep down we all know that anyway. You said he should be sold anyway because he's not good enough for the EPL, even though he is arguably our best player when on song.

To be honest, I couldn't give two hoots about his attitude / arrogance / smugness or whatever, as long as he does the business for the next 3 [or 6] games. Same for them all.

I might be a bit of a sentimentalist, but I think JR is worried without promotion, Leeds won't buy him [won't be able to afford him]; I think he wants to be at Leeds and there's a chance he won't be.

16 Apr 2024 16:50:25
Ani but with all about me players

when things go wrong ie defeats

" team harmony / spirit" evaporates super fast

A significant reason little ole League 1 Ipswich are ahead of Leeds, Leicester and Saints they have a better superb team spirit of honest pros each fighting 120% for the promotion cause . no big time Charlies planning their next move.

16 Apr 2024 17:36:14
I don't disagree with you Baz [maybe that's a first]; no doubt team harmony and spirit is hugely important; we're only speculating that we don't have it because of "sour" reaction of one or two players after some poor team performances.

As for Ipswich having no big time Charlies, well time will tell on that one, i. e. let's see how many are playing for them next season, promotion or otherwise. No doubt they have a great fighting / never give up spirit, but to be honest, so do we (most of the time) . We don't know what is being put in these guys heads; remember, they're basically kids, easily influenced.

16 Apr 2024 17:39:35
Think it’s harsh in Summerville

When players leaves it’s business. We support the club they are employees. If they do bad the club get rid of they do well they jump ship.

I’m what other job would a promotion to a better company paying more be looked upon badly?

When many wanted to jump ship like gnoto and sinisterra Summerville didn’t. We should all remember that.

16 Apr 2024 18:04:46
Jimmy not perfect but this is pure scapegoatery. Our issues lie elsewhere.

16 Apr 2024 18:13:40
It's one of the issues Georgey and a fairly significant one . we stopped scoring winning playing well .
there are of course ( even ) more significant issues re the past 5 match woeful ru

Ani good to see you concur with the wisdom that is Baz! Progress ☺.

16 Apr 2024 18:40:45
Perhaps as I'd advocated a rotating rest had been afforded Jimmy at the correct juncture we wouldn't be discussing this. Anthony has been criminally underused.

16 Apr 2024 19:31:50
You should write to Farke with your thoughts George, you are so clever. i think he would ask you to join his coaching team.

16 Apr 2024 19:58:00

16 Apr 2024 20:45:38
Sounds like a very logical explanation and solution from George.

16 Apr 2024 21:07:27
Indeed. Gosh you are super clever as well Baz - if only you were manager instead of double title winning Farke.

16 Apr 2024 21:39:03
You are living ✨️ in tbe past Cuppa.

17 Apr 2024 14:19:24
“Pure scapegoatery”; a good, and apt phrase there from George tbf.

17 Apr 2024 19:33:34
Cheers Brighty.
