There's something wrong beyond the team and RDM over the last 6 years we have been terminally shit at home regardless of what team or manager we have. This is a footballing ANOMALY there isn't a team in reputable league football in the whole of fucking Europe who have such a bad home record.

Ever since the 2-2 at Stoke our fans shit themselves when we are ahead VP is so nervous all the time, this conveys itself onto the players.

I'm not blaming the fans but this is the reason and I don't have a fucking answer to it either, apart from playing behind closed doors.

This thread is inevitable as is Dr X considering firing RDM. He's not going to want his immense investment (at this level) pissed away. And that's exactly what we are doing week after week. The remit is promotion first time and he's only going to give it a little longer before pulling the trigger.

How about the players show a bit of organisation and bravery when we're leading games instead of expecting the fans to pat their backs and tell them not to worry?

I think that if Di Matteo had been a universally popular appointment, more fans would be patient with him. But - and I stand to be corrected - a lot of people were ambivalent with Xia's choice because there were more obvious options this summer.

Going into games with a 4-2-4 formation just winds the opposition up. It might work if you're playing Sunderland, who have fantasies about staying up, but when you're playing Huddersfield and Brentford, who have spent years battling and improving, it just shows that you expect to steamroller them and you can bet they'll beg to differ.

There were other names mooted, such as Pearson and Moyes. I'm not saying I'd have preferred them necessarily, but I was certainly surprised when Di Matteo's name popped up.

Considering what a shit job both of those examples are doing, it's not really much of an argument that the wrong person was chosen in the summer.

Just shut the fucking doors.  Doesn't matter who the manager is, it's the same shit.  Place is cursed.

I was happy enough with him and I wouldn't be binning him yet but he's been pretty shit so far. This 4-2-4 bollocks isn't really working and we look wank at the back. If Brentford had been any cop in the final third tonight we'd have been well beaten.

Indeed.  The only thing that would make this current run worse, would be erm, having a worse run, and having Pearson as boss.  Damn, that's two things.
