Why can't we make a judgement from what we have seen over the last 7 games , 1 win .

Unsure why people are already going against the Lions after one game, wait until they start to gel. Then everyone will be on the Lions bandwagon. Let's just wait and see how the coming weeks come about, then we can judge. I think people will be pleasantly surprised.

Not all roses at the Den already. This weekend will be interesting. Not many local players left in that lineup. One maybe two? What are the board thinking?


I'd be surprised if he lasts half the season unless results happen fast

3 at the back ? You need players that have a great understanding of the game and who are fit and well disciplined.You need 3 good centre backs and the two wing backs must work up and back at the right times so that when they lose the ball either they or players who have rotated with them are back to almost have five at the back.Players here dont understand the formation well enough, let alone the coaches trying to play that system.I have seen some coaches turn up on a weekend and announce a starting formation which has never been played before or worked on at training prior to the game. Ridiculous.They call themselves coaches.


have Knights even got the cattle to play 3 at the back every week?

You seem to know your stuff, you might make the best coach of them all.
