    Minutes Per Goal

    Not sure how accurate that BBC page is since according to that Bannan's only played 180 minutes this season...
  2. It's a thought you should have probably kept in your head to be honest, airing it is just disrespectful to him since there's no way he could possibly do anything to prove you wrong. Maybe he should have returned to the team in the middle of the season on crutches? Saying that, people would have probably just claimed he was trying to force a move in January then as well. Unless you're one of those crazies who seemed to think his injury was all made up...

    Safe standing petition

    Is that a Brexit post?

    Derby tho

    As a club we've been on a pretty similar trajectory as Derby for quite a while now. They splashed some cash, failed, dropped down the league for a couple of seasons and are now back up there after the fans lost their sense of entitlement and received a reality check that having money doesn't guarantee success in this league. We'll be where they are soon.

    Nothing i wanna see more

    I think from how he spoke about his previous clubs during his time here, Braga especially, that's clearly far from the truth. I'm not saying he's not going to take the game any less professionally as a contest, but he certainly seems to be the type of character who is mindful of where he came from. I hope we win, but I wish him nothing but the best after how he handled himself here. A model professional, and from what I've witnessed, a model human being too. The vitriol aimed at him on here is astonishing, though unfortunately not surprising.
  6. I don't think it's that complicated. It's easy to play football when the pressure's off and you have nothing to lose. There can't be many people over 10 years old who still don't realise that football is a confidence game more than anything? It's exactly why I said on here before the season started that I expected United to be in the top six until around Christmas but would fall well away by its completion.
  7. I haven't watched it back to get a better view of whether Matias did dive or not, but there was an incident maybe 10 minutes before his red card where he was running down the wing and seemingly got a blatant trip from the Brum player right in front of the linesman, but nothing was given. I don't think the linesman is going to be on Marco's Christmas card list.
  8. Just recorded a clip from my iFollow stream and put it on YouTube: Can't see anything.
  9. Which is funny, since I've watched it back several times on iFollow and the only violent conduct seems to come from the Birmingham player. The linesman has had something against Marco all game from what I've seen.

    Home dugout

    I believe Carlos basically explained the decision as the OP describes, that it was just for the sake of making a change - but secretly it was clearly to try and get into the ear of the linesman more. Obviously they'd never publicly state that they're changing something specifically to try and influence the officials during a game though, that might be a little frowned upon by the league...

    I think these two sentences might be linked. It wouldn't be as sh!ite if people weren't constantly itching for something to be up in arms about all the time.
  12. We still have practically all the same players who not only challenged, but achieved the top six in both the last two seasons I wouldn't ever claim it was entirely the reason we're not competing well this season, but if I was one of the players I'd certainly be pissed off with how some of the fans had been treating Carlos for the past 12-16 months. Though we're not really any different to other clubs/fans in that regard, but that's kind of one reason why I seem to be falling out of love with football at the moment. I just can't agree with a lot of the bile that gets thrown around these days and there always seems to be race to see who can be the most negative first so they can claim to be right when something eventually (and inevitably, in sport) goes wrong.
  13. Really don't understand the logic behind this one, or anyone who seemingly agrees with you. What on earth has led you to this conclusion? However, if I was DC and read posts like this, you'd almost certainly get me thinking about getting the hell out of here even if I didn't originally want to...
  14. Looks like it's time for another Owlstalk hiatus if this is going to be the mood for the coming weeks. It seems like some people have much shorter memories than I ever imagined possible if they think we're in dire straits now.

    Well done Carlos

    What's this mess he left us in which people keep referencing? We've made the play-offs two seasons straight and have virtually all the same players who achieved it still at our disposal, things just got stale and we're under-performing. Mess. Unbelievable
