  1. I've noticed that we're doing this quite regularly now, so presume it's a tactic being coached. Windass seems to be deadly at deflecting them accurately towards the goal, which is something I noticed from his Rangers days. Rhodes also, has that knack of being in the right spot at the right time so could suit him as well. Reach though, seems to feel more confident taking a touch, which makes him less effective. Given all the looping, ineffective and often inaccurate service from last season, this is quite refreshing and more exciting to watch. The opposing defenders have little time to react and any height advantage is negated. I definitely think we'll get more chances by mixing it up and being less predictable this season. I suspect Beattie is behind this new varied approach.
  2. So you're not entirely ruling it out then? 😏
  3. Has the window shut, or closed. If so, will the door be open when the window is closed and shuttered? Definitely not an open and shut case. Or is it? I'm confused.
  4. Older Women Love Spatchcock
  5. Most managers have an ambitious vision, but when that vision falls short of expectations under the harsh reality of the Championship or the constraints of the budget, the true vision of a manager is to survive the chop or switch to another team as soon as they fear the chop or a better offer comes along. Or did you mean a blend of hand picked, young, hungry, ambitious players mixed with experienced pros adopting a pressing game? Sorry, I'm in ironic mode this morning.
  6. Maybe you should start a thread. Find out what is pure Sheffield and what is more widespread. I think I've heard goalie wag down in Devon where I live, but I played 5 a side with Geordies and Mancs too, so might have heard it from them. Bobar is another term you never hear outside the Sheffield area. Always makes me chuckle when I hear it.
  7. Yeah, I know that. We used both terms at school depending on how insulting we wanted to be. Neshing was another term I only heard in Sheffield.
  8. Is bog liner Sheffield slang? Never heard that term outside of Sheffield.
  9. Marvin the paranoid Owlsdroid. "Don't talk to me about life.....or Wednesday."
  10. Yeah, not so long ago we were favourites for relegation and got to the play off final!
