I've always believed in the lucky and unlucky manager thing.However, as Marinus had a decent time in Holland l'm hoping this is a blip and he's not the unlucky kind.

He's as frustrated as we are by this situation. He's always tried to put a positive spin in things but appeared to find it hard today.

his job is not to feel sorry for himself and the team - our job is to try and remain positive whilst we deal with this hellish start to the season. Truth is we may have a couple of tough months but I am sure with time Marinus can become a bees hero.

I agree but I can't blame anyone for thinking FFS after seeing Colin go down.

Apart from Hogan, Judge for a little while and Harlee hurting his foot, did we have any injuries, last season? :scratch:

We were especially lucky with injuries last season. It was a big reason for our success with such a small squad.

For most outsiders, and even many insiders, the luck with injuries (good or bad) is never remembered and time always remembers the results and points.

It shouldn't be the judgement but it is

Agree entirely. Take our win at MK Dons under Scott. Battered for 90 minutes but won 1-0. We remember the win. Take the Cardiff game. Clearly the better side but defensive slips meant we lost. The history books don't remember the context but results.

Warbs had it easier with the foreign signings... we had less of them and when they played they were slotted into a team surrounded by experienced pros like JD, TD and AM.

We've had to revamp the squad this season with a new manager, recruitment team etc. Gogia, McEachran, Hofmann, Kerschbaumer, Bjelland, Colin, Barbet, Vibe, Djuricin etc. all come from less intense leagues, and have been called into the team all together. It was obviously going to be more of a struggle.

Bit frustrated as we could have done with Dallas at this stage and we could have done without our pitch ****ing our record signing and our former player ****ting our best player.

The long term ones are a bit of a shame, but I think a lot of these players have learned early on what the Championship is about. We'll be okay this year and then next year we should be strong.

I hope that the 'message' from Barbet has been driven into all the team; "no choice, three points tomorrow", "three home games, nine points". That's a really focussed statement.

Let's hope they walk the walk. I certainly don't read anything into what players say anymore. A lot of it is just talking, the talk.
It's on the pitch that matters
I fear we've gone all soft in the head again
Gray played his 13ollox off last season and got his reward for it .... Clubs willing to pay £9M for him.
I fear the likes of Hoffman will never be as fit as Gray was under this new regime.

Not sure why you imply that the team isn't as fit. I believe we have the same fitness coaches and monitoring . I doubt there has been a fall in levels. Hofmann is a big unit and you can't compare him with Gray. A better comparison would be with Djuricin or Vibe.

At this stage last season the D&G guys had it in for Gray big time. We had his apparent lack of fitness, his waywardness, he looked out of his depth etc. even at season end he was the subject of abuse. Wind forward , someone else is paying 9 million and he was always the finished article. Give the guy Hoffman a chance.

Yes, we need to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and focus on winning with what we've got left.

Douglas for a bit as well I think?

Ah, yes.
Only Judge and Douglas were first team regulars. Harlee, Craig and Tarky were swapped and shuffled, and McCormack was rarely a starter.

We were fortunate with injuries, last season and seem to be paying for it, this season. :(

Not a lot we can do about it. All we can do is support whoever is selected. :hat:

McCormack was a regular at right back I thought.

Well done Marinus. Positive changes turned the game. Got a really good reception from New Road before the game too which was good to see.

I thought bringing O'Connell on was the right thing. They were just pumping the ball forward and it let Harlee come forward and attack their long ball. Very good substitution. As were all the others.

Very well done for today, good changes made made it a better 2nd half, I feel sorry for him, what other manager has got 15 injured players on his hands, has done the best he can with what he is left with, makes you wonder how it will go when he has the missing links in place?, still had some ***** in the Ealing Road shouting for him to go, what a pathetic lot they are, please go and take your so called support elsewhere, we don't need you at GP.

Yep I heard that too. Wish it was legal to knock someone out at a football match, because there were a few behind Ealing Road today who deserved it.

Whole game turned on the Canos substitution, and Macca to right back. MD isnt afraid to make the important changes, and in my eyes, that sets him apart from Warburton.

He might get things wrong initially, but he doesnt hide, and isnt afraid to change things

That's the thing I like about him...not demonstrative but not afraid to make a change in personnel or tactics where he sees fit..dealt a poor hand regarding injuries and players available but obviously clear in his thinking with a plan a,b and c

Marinus won the game. What more can a manager do? I really rate him.

In the wrong
Tend to think you find out how good a manager is in adversity.

15 players unavailable in your first gig over seas is probably a good definition of adversity and I think MD is coming through the test pretty well

His reaction to the second goal was brilliant. Passion for all to see

I also noticed that he looked to the heavens at the final whistle and also raised his arms aloft as he walked over to the centre circle at the end. He is nicely understated but it obviously meant a lot to him.

I really like him. Comes across as a decent bloke and isn't afraid to change things around

yes his plan B is not to make plan A better.

Should be obvious
I called him as he quietly walked off the end. He came alive when he heard his name. A massive beaming smile. Really like this guy and his work.

He seems a very likeable man. Has no sides to him at all - what you see is what you get.

Up there for the first time in a long time today and loved it but my God it's got its fair share of twits: the guy behind me was almost hysterical most of the game and every comment he made was negative. Clarke and Barbet were written off within 15 minutes of their debut and Toumani had a 'mare' apparently!

Mate, it has far too many gobby, negative, unfunny knobs and surprised someone hasn't dealt with by now.
