  1. Exactly. He may be a frustrating, blinkered, idealistic, lunatic, but he's OUR frustrating, blinkered, idealistic, lunatic.
  2. Oooo, let me fink about that one.... Errrrm, Nah! Regards, DM
  3. "The Wednesday defence just seem nervous and that will eventually lead to mistakes. I'm sure they would be much higher up the league if they didn't insist on playing out from the back. It's all very well in the PL where you have the players for it, but not in League One. If you dont have the players capable of playing that system or the players themselves are not happy with that system, then it's not going to work. Maybe you have both and then it's a double negative." Those words from an opposition commentator tell me that every professional in this League knows our main weakness and how to exploit it. Every person except one that is. Unfortunately, that person is stubbornly blind to his failure and will ultimately lose the respect of everyone by insisting that the best route forward is to change nothing, dust yourself down and go again.
  4. Would he be in the automatics now? Are the frustrating performances all down to his tactics, or does he not currently have the quality of players capable of following his system? Are they just not used to each other's individual style. In other words, with a team that has talented players and has already 'gelled', would his tactics be successful? If so, is it the Manager's tactics, the individual player's capabilities, or the team collective that has the most influence on success?
  5. That's what I figured. I can't for the life of me see where the consistency is. Too much messing around once again. FFS!
  6. Just so we know what we are talking about. A person who is uninfected can transmit the virus, simply by touching a contaminated surface and spreading it around to other surfaces. They won't however spread it by coughing, so the chance of an uninfected person (or someone with a mild infection) of passing it on is reduced. Secondly, recovery from one strain of the virus gives you very little protection from another and also natural resistance weakens over time, hence why boosters are needed. Think of it like a cold or flu (also a coronovirus). There are lots of variations, hence why you never become immune to them. Covid vaccinations are really for your own protection from severe illness and long term complications and to reduce the rate of spread to others. If you think they are some form of attempt at government control, then I would suggest that SARS Cov 2 is the least of your concerns.
  7. The length of the game x the width of the pitch x the height of the tallest defender gives a constant that equals 442, but I will continue to assert that 433 is the correct answer.....erm.....yeah....no.
  8. "I don't mind dropping into League 1. At least we might get to see some wins." FFS, we've got rid of the overpaid wasters, brought in some younger, hungrier players and still I am watching absolute bobar in L1. It's an F-ing joke. This is going to need a major turnaround very quickly to inspire any confidence in Moore's tactics. I suspect he's already a dead man walking.
  9. Don't worry, a payday loan secured against future wage..er......or against Hillsbor..er....OK I'm sure Chansiri has several company credit cards.
  10. The main problems I saw yesterday, were certain defenders not reacting fast enough to loose balls. The midfield being closed down and pressurised to stifle passing out from the back. The wings not being used effectively until Corbeanu came on and very little overlapping or even lateral support for most of the game. Byers being asked to do a job that he clearly doesn't have the confidence or physical presence for. Bannan trying to run the show single handed and getting understandably frustrated. Generally, very little composure in front of goal and more worryingly a lack of determination to put a mark on the game and physically compete with the opposition. We didn't look like a team, we looked like a bunch of isolated, frustrated individuals with very little belief in the cause.
  11. Just made general sale. Got mine. Around 200 left. Get clicking!
  12. Yes. What was the question again?
  13. He may not be what we want, but his name sounds Brazilian and for that reason alone, I'd like to occasionally see it on the team sheet. Quite classy for League One.
