  1. Looks like a combination of halogen lamps to generate heat and LED UV to encourage growth.
  2. I wasn't the slightest bit nervous, I knew the outcome of the shootout was inevitable as soon as the whistle blew.
  3. You also have to consider, especially in the current climate, where else would they get such a well paid job? I'm guessing it's considerably more than a Tesco delivery driver.
  4. This was actually something that Jos brought up. He said that Dutch players are taught from an early age to analyse the situation on the pitch and alter tactics accordingly, which is one of the reasons he was not very animated on the touchline. He said UK players need telling all the time what to do. You see this all the time at Hillsborough, when it seems obvious what players should be doing, but stick to what they have been told.
  5. As it’s been said many times on here, you can prove anything with statistics, but out of interest I wondered how Adthe’s stats stacked up against another famous “non-scoring striker” – Emile Heskey. Games Played (minutes per game), Goals Scored (per minute), Assists (per minute) Emile Liverpool 223 (70), 60 (261), 9 (1,743) Career 720 (72), 152 (342), 33 (1,576) Adthe SWFC 227 (51), 37 (311), 24 (479) Career 426 (48), 78 (262), 36 (568) Data from transfermarkt.co.uk I know - different clubs, leag
  6. I'm not downplaying its importance, but like every other part of the game, the individual will manage that aspect how they see fit. If Mr Reach thinks that he has the balance right between the effectiveness of his tackling and self preservation, that is a discussion that needs to be had between him, his colleagues and management. I'm sure if Garry Monk thinks he is being a fanny, words will be had. I like players to get stuck in, as long as they can do it properly. Some players are great at it (a tacke by Zico Sterland comes to mind when the attacker went six foot up in the air and you cou
  7. He has been available for nearly every game since he signed. If he "got stuck in" and tackled like Sam Hutchinson, we'd be lucky to get 20 games a season out of him. Is being fit for 40+ games a season price worth paying for "neshing" a few tackles?
  8. Cue unrealistic optimism or rabid pessimism. No room for a measured view here!
  9. It is often stated that the league begins to sort itself out after ten games and that the league positions then will be there or thereabouts come the end of the season. Are there any stattos out there with evidence to support or debunk this for SWFC or the league in general?
  10. He was known in his early management days as "Professional job seeker" Steve Bruce. Seems nothing has changed.
  11. Always wondered why we don't get the likes of Waddle in on an ad hoc basis to take some "Masterclasses". One of the first he could do is "How to Cross a Ball". Others: Lee Chapman on "how to Head", Lawrie Madden on "How to Clear a Loose Ball from Your Penalty Area".
  12. Based on Boyd's last few performances, I certainly wouldn't be picking him. Hutchinson is a player I like, but is a booking or injury waiting to happen; unless his recklessness can be coached out of him (for his own protection and the team's benefit) I can't see Jos picking him.
  13. The reason that VHS won the battle was because it was the medium of choice for the USA muck industry. Make of that what you will for a supposed "conservative, christian" country.
