    The Matchday crew would have got at least a point out of yesterday's debacle.

    Then I guess you're one of those that will say we'd be higher up the table if the points hadn't been deducted...

    A five year old could say that and be absolutely correct.

    What's your point?

    I rest my case...


    So I was pointing out that your comment about the matchday team was merely speculation, similar to the belief that the pre season point deduction not being applied would mean we would be in a higher position in the table.


    It's not a certainty, that was my point.


    Sorry if you were confused...

    I agree in that his thinking wasn't about ‘stopping’ the opposition, but rather to gain some tactical advantage, but the point remains that we set up primarily with a consideration of the opposition primarily.


    We played 3 at the back in the home wins to Preston and Boro under Thompson even though they only had one up top, after all.


    Thank you for injecting some sanity...

    Only Wednesday could go into a game - having won 5 at home in a row - and - against a team second bottom, without a win in months - to try and stop the opposition.


    Honestly, this club is full of complete idiots from top to bottom.


    I'm amazed most of these people manage to make their way to the ground, let alone play a game of football.


    Source for this please?


    In my opinion the comments NT made for the changes indicate the opposite.


    He didn't see the need for three defenders against one forward...

    You haven't got a case.

    Outside of don't question the management because you're a stupid wednesdayite.

    I understand that you haunt Matchday hoping that some football knowledge might rub off on you but it's poor form to bite the hand that feeds you.


    You think not having points deducted pre season means we'd be higher in the table.


    You don't know that, was my case...

    When Jos selected that side with NO strikers - were the fans wrong to suggest that was crackers?

    How about when Forestieri was played as a left wing back? Where fans wrong then too when they disagreed with those tactics?

    Did the managers know stuff we didn't to justfy those selections?






    That's kind of what I was getting at.

    I'm not saying managers are infallable, just the reasons for decisions might not be known or so obvious...
