I believe HottaSo how do we pronounce "Jota" - José Ignacio Peleteiro Ramallo
Is it Jota like Jotter?
Is it Jota like Hotter?
Is it Jota like Yotta?
I've seen various ways but i've no idea myself. Can't have
another Toumani saga on our hands.
Anyway i've "gotta" go now but back later! lol
Quiet day at work then !!Obvious chant for the man being Spanish and a name pronounced Hota:
Ole Ole Ole Ole Ole
Feeling hot hot hot hot, feeling hot hot hot hot,
So go run run run run, so go run run run run,
How you feeling?, hota hota hota,
How you feeling? hota hota hota
Ealing road? hota hota hota,
New Road? hota hota hota,
Braemar Road? hota hota hota
Jota has been in this country for less than two weeks and not yet up to speed. A fair decision by Warburton and to suggest he's playing his mate is offensive and wrong.Thought Jota showed great potential to day and was wrongly subbed (should have been Warbs mate Smith) liked to have seen more of him with Moses playing behind him in the RB role
Correct, I trust MW with all his choice of subs, he knows exactly what is needed on the field of play, but there is always someone who thinks they know better than the managerJota has been in this country for less than two weeks and not yet up to speed.

I think Smith should have been the one not Jota. Jota already showed his willingness to track back albeit in a brief spell and looked dangerous in possession. Smith was off the pace for most of the first half and wasn't tracking and with ten men IMO he contributed to us getting a bit of a chasing after the sending off. It was predictable that he would be subbed at half time. I think that was a case of Warbs correcting an error.
IMO Warbs made an error. Like all of us he's human. Sure we got to half time only 1-0 down but we should have been dead and buried. I see your reasoning but going down to 10 players IMO puts a premium on having your 10 fittest and quickest players on the pitch. Pace in particular as it can worry the oppo. I'd have taken Smith off and put Moses on. IMO Warbs had luck on his side first half but the second half was a superb effort.10 men and a goal down after 16 minutes, the first thing to think about is stabilising the team and having an experienced head who can communicate with the other, mainly young, players would be vital. Smith or Jota? Rethink the tactics, get to half time without conceding and then set the team up; perfect management.
agree. i liked the way AM was giving him instructions in the 1st half and then reverted to the old explaining with hand gestures! ha. Him, Judge and of course Pritchard makes good reading?!This guy is going to be hugely influential for us this season. Bearing in mind he didn't have a pre-season with us, today was just a taster of how good he's going to be. Fantastic skill level and always looking for the forward move or pass. Really exciting to think how much better he'll be in two weeks, let alone two months

I see your point. Not always involved but when he does get the ball he is so composed and has talent in abundance. As each game passes I am sure he will become even more influential
That's what I thought ,but did improve as the first half progressed and showed his obvious talent when he beat 2 men and put in a good cross just before we scored.He will need to be given time to get used to championship football.Thought he pulled out of a couple of tackles & headers. Looks a talent but needs to man up aswell.
Agreed. He was anonymous for the first 15 minutes, but after that had a good game. What impressed was his willingness to close down and try and nick the ball back as well.Thought he played very well yesterday, especially the first half. Worked hard for the team, tracked back and played some quality football.
Warbs. Is handling him well giving him 60 odd minutes to allow him to get up to full fitness and prevent him picking up an injury or burning him out too early. Also suspect he has been told he can give it his all for 60 odd minutes. Team is settling down to a first eleven with automatic replacements that won't weaken the team or upset the formation.He is a quality player not yet up to full fitness. When you think he had hardly any pre season his performances in mid are outstanding. He will be a match winner for us in due course.
What a shame he didn't just smack it rather than try to cross it.excellent piece of skill down by the er end.....little touch over the head of calderon
