  1. Seemed a bit strange to me too. Just had a look at the data and he didn't start a game for more than three months after he went off injured in his last game for us, with only sub appearances for Stoke before that. Coincidentally, in his first appearance for Stoke he came on as sub to replace Lee Gregory.
  2. Probably filming her next investigative TV series.
  3. I have a very similar disfluency/stammer myself, which I've struggled to control my whole life. I don't think much of the kind of person who mocks it. That kind of person makes me sick. But go on, try and make it out that I'm accusing you of something else.
  4. I'd be interested to see if that has an effect, statistically, on who wins Play-off semi-finals. On paper you'd expect to favour the team that plays the home leg second because they would've finished higher in the league, but we all know that often doesn't happen. I'd like to see the stats though to see if there really is an advantage or not.
  5. That tactic won't work in the Play-offs though, fortunately.
  6. This isn't about what members of the first team said though, is it? It's about statements from the club/chairman, etc.
  7. Of those four clubs, currently three of them are still in the same division they were in at the time of the manager's appointment (presumably you're talking about Wilder for Utd), and it's still possible they will continue to be there next year, just like us.
  8. Well, that's changed the direction of this thread somewhat...
  9. Okay, well, technically it's disfluency rather than an actual impediment, but I'm sure you knew that. By the way, "enlighten me" is a statement and shouldn't have a question mark at the end.
  10. With your use of intelligent puns and ridiculing of a speech impediment, I'm sure the feeling would be mutual.
  11. Did DC say that? Honest question as I have a very poor short-term memory and can't find a link to it.
  12. I'm guessing it's to do with allowing the on-field referee to retain some sort of integrity. The on-field ref is far more likely to shy away from making any big decisions if they know the video ref is the one always having the final say. The on-field ref also has, in theory, a better understanding of the context of the game too, being the one who's actually there in person amongst the players. The difference with the offside rule is that (in theory at least) it should be a relatively straightforward "right or wrong" answer, whereas penalties and sendings-off are more open to interpretation.
  13. It was just a training shirt. It might've been used in a preseason friendly or something, but it wasn't a designated 3rd kit.
