    Stop it Gene, you’re killing me

    Already posted elsewhere but may as well stick it here too... I've crunched the numbers so you don't have to... Average height of our three big units = a shade over 6' 1" Average height of our five big units = a shade under 6' 1" Average height of Uniteds three CBs = a shade over 6' 2" Maybe he was thinking of our three behemoths in midfield, average height just over 5' 7"? ...A team with four youth players with an average of 15 championship appearances in their careers (most coming this season)... ...A team with three players discarded by other clubs... ...A team with two much maligned players who cost next to nothing... ...A team with a player who has made the grand total of zero games for his parent club in three years... ...A team with one player who signed for a middling amount of cash in todays market (the kind of money that buys a championship center back)...

    Embarrassed

    So, an hour before the match you saw the team we were putting out... And then you expected us to go out and play like Barca? We went there with the intention of keeping the point we started the game with and we got it, we kept a clean sheet and not once did they turn us around, get behind us or have a golden chance (penalty side). I'd say we had a right to be pleased with the result given what we went there to achieve.

    New Celebrity Wednesday Fan?

    Nonsense, you can see with the pained expression, the smile that doesn't reach the eyes, that he is a long standing Wednesday fan... the discomfort that he's miss judged how ridiculous the fancy dress policy was and overdone it with his Wednesday cap...

    Hutchinson At Centre Back

    Would be interesting in a back three, something certainly needs to happen to tighten up... We're not gung-ho, we play a generally conservative game.... the style of play we have should result in clean sheets and isn't.

    The two Boro goals

    Not really that important to put it inside the post when you have an open goal tap in... Could otherwise be described as nearly screwing it up.

    Did you rate Boro?

    Yep, as others say, a Pulis side... Wouldn't want to have to watch them all season but they'll be there or thereabouts.

    Man of the Match & Ratings

    Hector was ok, he was a bit too lightweight... He's a unit, he should have done what the Boro defenders did, take everything, man and ball. The first goal he didn't do enough to stop it then didn't follow the play... Might be being a bit harsh, lots of players ambled back. Pelupessy is a 'nuisance' player, when defending he rats about, gets in at least 'half a challenge' every time... When it works he generally has Bannan close to him, taking advantage of Pelupessy holding up the attacking player and picking up the pieces... It didn't work tonight but I thought he played his part.

    Man of the Match & Ratings

    Pelupessy comes out of today with a lot of credit for me, battled all night, had some bad decisions given against him. Showed what he brings to the team. Nobody else played particularly well but the loss was down to an individual mistake, however bad we might have played.
  12. Did a fantastic job for us for one season, a solidly effective job for a second, then a bad job for six months. Bought a few players that the fans loved the idea of, then when they failed fans pointed out they were just the latest in a series of misjudged buys. Had a lot of charisma which the fans lapped up, until they decided he was all codpiece and no junk. Do we really need to go through all this 'he's worse than Hitler' BS every time he mentioned? Move on, get on with your life and lose all this negative energy you have going on about Carlos, after all you don't want to use up all your negativity when our current Manager potentially has a downturn in results just around the corner (failing that tonight might see some misplaced passes you can get all het up about).

    Who's had the toughest start?

    Not true, the team at the bottom after 46 games would have the hardest fixtures with the lowest average and the team top would have the easiest with the highest average. I do get your point though, if you win a game you invariably rise up the table and if you lose you drop, therefore the weighting is wise after the event because by virtue of the fact you won a game that game is classed as having been easier than it was before the game, whilst the opposite is true for the losing team, particularly at such an infant stage of the table where teams can rise or drop eight places in 90 minutes. Its interesting but relatively meaningless as an analysis and I can't help but feel it'd be given much less credence if a certain team weren't shown as having the easiest fixtures (or second easiest on the recount).
