    I politely disagree.

    He's had fitness issues his entire career, mostly weight related. He's had numerous niggling injuries, Harris has admitted he needs nursing over the season. I don't think Tomlin, for all his skill, has been professional enough in looking after his body over the years and for all his skill, the older he gets, the more niggling injuries he'll get.

    Controversial due to his skill, but we can't base our seasonal hopes on one player who isn't getting any younger and has shown a proven inability to be available for a full season. The club need a long-term approach, Tomlin gives us a short term option only.

    Better off Fulham winning, Brentfords best players are playing premier league football with or without them and I’d prefer if fulham weren’t in this league next year especially with the 3 that has come down Nothing to fear :warnock:
    Terrific second half performance just didn’t have enough

    Nah, there are certain players that can produce magic, match-winning moments and Tomlin is one such player. Whitts was another.

    Harris is right we are the capital city and deserves premier league football.

    Neil Harris actually made us proud in defeat in the play offs unlike the embarrassment of a 5 nil thrashing under Malky.

    He offers a lot in midfield, workman like with a great set piece, I get what your saying but sometimes you can get your job done under the radar, he's an asset to this squad imo, I really like him

    I don't disagree in terms of what they *could* produce. I'm disagreeing that we should base our game upon him. You can have all the talent in the world but if you can't start games regularly without bowing out your arse after 20 minutes then you're either a permanent sub to be brought on late when chasing games or you're a passenger in the team.

    Unfortunately, Tomlin cannot be relied upon to be match fit.

    As talented as Whitts could be, his time with the club was sadly up. His time in football was up tbh as his stint at Blackburn showed.

    We need to get younger as a squad and get more creative as a squad. My view is if Tomlin can contribute, great, but we need to be in a situation where we're able to create with or without him. I sadly don't see anything other than Tomlin's issues continuing and getting worse over time. Next season can't depend on him being available.

    Fulham sent £100m and relegated below us.

    The Prem right now is a money league. You've either got the money or you haven't. It's difficult for anyone to stay up long term without massive spending.

    Terrific effort from the lads to stay in it right until the end, especially after being outclassed on Monday.

    Nows not the time to be moaning about what this player can’t do or what that player can’t do. If they were perfect they wouldn’t be playing in the championship.

    Great effort in getting to the play offs from all the lads, it was very much a squad game, especially since the restart and most of all thank you Neil Harris for getting my mojo back for the City. :aya:

    Bluebirds, Bluebirds, Bluebirds :warnock:

    Smithies should have gone through the little cunt every time he was stopping him from kicking. Little Wurzel prick.

    Not tonight it shouldn’t. The lads should be getting nothing but praise tonight.

    I’d rather focus and reflect on the positives. 3rd highest points In the league from when Harris took over. Took us from a season that was going absolutely nowhere to 5th. 7 wins out of last 10. Pushed a Fulham side who have spent a ridiculous amount of money and wages compared to us all the way over 180 minutes they were the side clinging on 2nd half.

    Plenty of positives and momentum to take into a new season which has better sides leaving the division than the ones coming down. There will be no massive spenders because of Covid and we’ve got a settled group with one or two new additions added and Wardy signed up to a new contract. Things are looking up.

    I had written us off before a ball was kicked tbh. Thought it was too much of a mountain to climb. If we had somehow managed to score in 75th minute when that scramble wouldn’t fall to us and the keeper pulled a wordy from Vaulks I think there was only 1 winner. Momentum was all with us.
