Dippers (A) 5 May 2024, Tea time

I have become comfortably numb. A short while ago chaps were posting here about how we were probably going to be in the CL next season, it seemed reasonable, almost nailed on - then I remembered which team I supported, oh yeah Spurs innit? An even shorter while ago its was 'Europe League, for sure, absolutely', now Taliban United and the other United are snapping at our heels, we need 6 points from our last 4 to be sure, that'll be easy eh? Oh yeah, Spurs.

I can't see us winning this afternoon, yeah it's defeatist, but like I said, comfortably numb. It would of course be nice to thump the Dippers, we do sometimes do well in the games we are predicted to do badly in, so fingers crossed, you never know. I am not going to even get a little bit umpty if we get mullahed because I have become comfortably numb.

Sums it up pretty well for me as well. Apparently if Villa win and if we lose (*cough*) then Villa confirm a top four finish and the Champions League.

If the Dippers fail to win then they'll be mathemetically out of the title race as well so there's that "incentive".

As long as we throw the kitchen sink against Burnley and Sheffield United then I'm honestly not that bothered about this afternoon.

One thing I know for sure, it won’t be goalless. Cue a 0-0. 🤦‍♂️ On a side note, is everyone else getting this bloody annoying drop down ad at the top of the page?

Not an inspiring team selection, 5 or 6 of those underperformed against Chelsea. I would expect a reaction after that game so you never know. Throw everything at them then refresh when they get tired. Ange didn't like the passing backwards, some long shots and diagonal crosses to worry their defence might work.
I don't expect us to win so fairly relaxed.

Think Richy’s out for Bentancur.
Yeah you’re right.

Villa losing means the top four is still on. Obviously it means we have to win today of course so clearly that’s the easy part 😂

More concerned about Salah vs Royal mate. Top 4’s a pipe dream right now.

Oh I’m not expecting to win today at all and I most likely won’t even watch the rest of the game if we go behind early but the Villa result has, rather annoyingly, given me a tiny bit of hope ..

Hard fought draw is what is needed. Play with courage and remove those stupid mistakes from the last few games.

Yeah let's go there! There is a nice place. Villa have got Palace and the Dippers to play, Palace are on a bit of a roll and the Dippers will be seething 'cos we robbed them of the chance for the title today, so that's no points for them. Meanwhile we will thump City like we normally do, struggle against Burnley and Sheffield but scare a couple of 1-0 wins and Bob will be our mum's bother. On the other hand .............

Problem is mate, that place always looks good in the brochure, you turn up and it’s dark, soulless and leads to bouts of depression!

Vicario needs to do so much better there.

Frustrating to see us have so much good possession but create nothing from it. Final ball and clinical finish is missing from this team at the moment

Been a really decent game of football.Son should have been braver in that last attack and drove towards goal.

Romero excellent

Are they playing really well, or are we just genuinely shit at the back? Thinking bit of both!

Got to look at taking Rod off. He's so far off the pace.

We're offering nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Yeah we're shit at the back. But here's the thing. We're shit all over the pitch. WHERE are we strong ? 1 shot on target so far today. It took us an hour against Arsenal and not far off that again against Chelsea. Romero and Micky have the potential to be another Jan and Toby imo but the rest ???
Alot to fix for Ange this summer. I can see 6/7 being shown the door and based on the last few games, I'd applaud that.

Manager said pretty much the same thing in the press conference. Mass changes are needed, but we knew this was a rebuild

Battered!

It’s just all a bit rubbish. Ange has to be given another season, most of these players just aren’t good enough to be mixing at the top table. Reckon we need 2 upgrades in the middle of the park, and potentially a whole upgrade across the front 3. Get your wallet out Daniel! 🤦‍♂️

I want to know how he can be let stay on the pitch for this long. He's been targeted since the first whistle. Dragusin is on the bench. Why can't we try him with Romero and put Vdv at left back ? WHY ?

Hate the cunt but that was a peach of a strike. Liverpool are playing some really good stuff but not too hard, coz we’ve been utter shit!

Summer will be massive for us, however we are still 5th considering the shit show of the last few games.

This is bad. We have to trun this around in the next few games or Ange is in trouble. Don't even need to win, just look like we're trying and compotent.

Good goal from Richy. Finally some reward for our possession.
