    What the f*ck was that?

    With respect, it's been obvious for a long while that this is where we've been heading. Don't have a go at fans that figured this out a while before you did. This is where we're at, it's been obvious for at least a year and a bit that this is where we're at and where we're going to be for the foreseeable future.

    Our Penalty Decision

    According to that quoted bit, only the middle point is valid to our scenario... the decision was altered. Surely having had the ball tackled fairly out for a corner that means it should have been a corner? Lord knows. Certainly my interpretation both before and after the incident seems to me to be the common sense one, but I guess it's just the wrong one irregardless.

    Chelsea - V - Wednesday FA Cup OMDT

    Yeah, and we're not AFC Wimbledon The point is that we only had 3 shots... there have been far more one-sided fixtures on paper than this one and the underdogs have universally managed more attacking intent than we did. I never expected us to even come close to winning, but a shot every 30 minutes is just unacceptable.

    Chelsea - V - Wednesday FA Cup OMDT

    Bloody hell, I know we should be managing expectations, but averaging 1 shot every half an hour just isn't acceptable in a one-off match where we should be at least giving it a go... I'm willing to bet we had the fewest shots of any team in this round of FA Cup fixtures. FFS the team bottom of League One managed to score more goals against Premier League opposition than we've managed shots today.

    We've had 20% of the ball Full credit to the back 4 that after nearly 80 minutes we've limited an Argentianian and Brazilian international, Real Madrid attacking midfielder and one of the best teenagers in the country to only two goals in nearly 80 minutes. Lord knows how Fox is getting pelters

    George Boyd gets a lot of love on here cause he works hard But he does seem to be playing the game as if he's running through syrup a lot of the time

    Our Penalty Decision

    The issue, as I see it, is if the referee doesn't blow there, VAR would check it and conclude it's a corner. What happens, however, if the referee makes a mistake which results in a drop ball. Seems bizarre to me that with the rules as they currently stand that we pay for the referee's error when there was such a natural break and continuation in how the play was developing (corner).

    Yet more evidence that I don't trawl google before every post I have now done said research, tar for highlighting the mistake

    1. When I want to fact-check I google it... when I'm not fact-checking I promise you I don't open another tab... I don't have time to google before I post every time, crikey. 2. The "point" of my post is that just because Reach wouldn't be playing if all those players were fit is immaterial, because those players aren't fit. You can only play who is available. 3. Nope, I haven't been to a game in a very long time. Mixture of the pains of unemployment (now fortunately ceased), high cost of attendance and apathy for the direction (both literally and with the various schemes) the club is going under DC don't enthuse me to wanting to go either. I've made little attempt to hide that fact either.

    Copy and paste expert... what does that even mean? Oh, and post not poster is the rule, isn't it?

    Forestierri 14m

    The injury prone Barry Bannan has played 8549 minutes of Championship football since the beginning of the 2016/2017 season Over the same period, Fernando Forestieri has played 3927 minutes. Barry Bannan has played over twice the amount of football that Fernando Forestieri has played. Fernando Forestieri has started 12 league games since August 2017. At the risk of being patronising, it is now January 2019. What you're saying sounds great on an emotional level, but the second you look at it with any sort of critical eye you realise that it just doesn't stand up to factual scrutiny.
