  1. Constructive dismissal, effectively followed by termination.
  2. Play to the 99th minute! So much added time these days and so many late goals. Fitter teams who keep at it. As you said earlier Major, consistent team selection and settled sides helps organisation. A big factor in late stages of games.
  3. Funny old game, this really is a tough division.
  4. Bentley interview, clearly a winner and a leader, spoke well. We need a few more characters like him.
  5. Massengo had a chance to put his foot through it but stood off. On such fine margins do things turn. Being fair, Barnsley did well and kept going. We were too panicky at the end.
  6. Most of the team seem to have the wrong studs/boots. Slipping around far more than Barnsley.
  7. Keogh may want to file against the drivers as well. Almost guaranteed an out of court settlement.
  8. Another angle is that whilst doing well in terms of position, we might well be missing opportunities whilst others are having a tough time of it for their own reasons. As Spud infers, accept the points but don't overlook the genuine shortcomings. Those we are putting out are more than capable of getting the basics right on a more consistent basis. + our Head Coach agrees with that !
  9. I'll get slaughtered for this (probably) but I'd give Szmodics a go on Friday, the 1 behind Rodri and Weimann. He isn't just a scoring midfielder but creates and has a decent assist record. Most importantly, he wants the ball and wants to drive forward. We can't judge him on his limited time to date. I'd agree with the 3-4-1-2 for Friday with Brownhill and Massengo (but it will more likely be O'Dowda) behind Szmodics. I also have a feeling that Bailey Wright will start (not my choice but a feeling) on the right of a three with Moore central (if fit) and Williams benched. Pereira and Rowe make up the numbers. Another problem I saw up front on Sunday was Rodri and Weimann were hot sure when or where to go as they had no idea what the other was going to do which led to a degree of stasis and even distances. Once Rodri went off, Weimann was free to roam. I don't see this as a problem with more training ground work. I'd have Weimann bomb forward and Rodri run the line in between Szmodics and Weimann.
  10. I'm looking forward to Premier league level of debate on here:
  11. Fact: only 5 at home. Second part, a joke/flippant remark based upon that, nothing more. Ain't stats a funny thing ...
  12. Leeds have only scored 5 at home this season. Twice as boring as us!
  13. Misunderstood height as a factor? Not when 6ft is the base, no.
  14. I think you are making excuses for our back line as well as making too many assumptions about height. 6ft is clearly enough to get up and attack the ball. Rather than go in circles, I'll leave it there.
  15. Go take a look at the top scoring defenders of all time. Barely one above 6ft among them.
  16. Actually wanting the ball helps as well. The more the groans grew, the more certain players wanted to hide. Szmodics berated by many on here but has come on in two difficult games recently. HOWEVER: He wanted the ball, showed for it and often pointed to where he wanted it. I'd give him a go over Palmer in a central role. The kid wants to drive forward. + don't get me started on our throw ins. We waste so much time on these. When a player shows, they are often ignored then we invariably want to throw it back. At times in front of the Lansdown, our lads were screaming at the thrower to put it forward. Clearly, we weren't all on the same page yesterday.
  17. Similar to Palmer, O'Dowda does not know when to release the damn thing! We have many players who need to get their heads up a bit more. The ref stopped us taking a few quick free kicks yesterday. That does not help.
