  1. Yes he seems to be saying that. More quotes from twitter: LJ: "I didn’t recognise us. We lacked our identity. It was very frustrating.” LJ: "It could have been anyone I took off at half-time.” LJ: "I can handle losing but not if we aren’t playing to our identity.”
  2. Sounds like LJ similarly angry about us just lumping it to Djuric: LJ: "We played big Milan Djuric and we decided to pump 100 long balls to him. I had to take the option off them.”
  3. Duric concerns

    Yes and it sounded like it is going to take a few months for Djuric to be right. A shame, but on the bright side, just imagine the player we will have when he is fully fit. Just hope that we will see that later this season.
  4. Sound of the City for Senior citizens, for one episode only.

    Best Sound of the City so far in my view. The interviews from 1955 when we won Div 3 South were really interesting, probably because I’ve never heard anything like that from that era before. Also makes you realise how little things have changed really: ‘Football is a business’ was even acknowledged by HD back then - this is not a new post Premier League phenomena - but he also said it was ‘good fun’. You get the sense that SL would have the same view - business but fun too. HD also had the sense to increase non match ticket revenue (via the bowls under the Dolman Stand) - same now. The main reason we were promoted as champions was team spirit (although this wasn’t due to a pre-season tour of Botswana!). I recommend a listen on iplayer.
  5. Card Failed For Utd - IMPORTANT

    Agree. Pleasing that so easy to do on phone, including load to card. There was a time when it was hard to navigate the ticket site on a phone but no issues this season.
  6. When was the last time before tonight that England had two players in the starting line-up that used to play for us (albeit on loan in tonight’s case)?

    Although impressive that his stand does not look out of place today nearly half a century later. The integration of the Dolman Stand is one of the clever/unique bits of the redevelopment in my view.

    A good read. Given all HD did to get us to the old First Division, it is great that he saw us finally make it in his lifetime.
  9. Thank you Brentford

    Leeds slide is getting a bit like ours last season. Lost 6 out of last 7. Would’ve been 7 out of 7 had we turned up v them! Not sure what is going on there.
  10. Cardiff....can't pass, won't pass...

    Well we saw today what @spudski was saying the stats reveal re Cardiff’s style. Amazing how effective they are at what they do. I much prefer watching how we play, although I found it ironic that we scored our winner from a long throw!
  11. Ok. So team for tomorrow?

    I didn’t think we were selecting the team; I thought that was LJ’s job!! Whereas this thread is about who and how we would play if Pisano and Baker are not fit given Wright’s suspension.
  12. International Break

    And to calm down after the wind up of the FA decision re Wright! If we win today, I would regard our start to the season as perfect.
  13. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Agree. Said same earlier in the thread. You get penalised more because the ref is poor and doesn’t spot it which is daft.The same conduct should warrant same penalty. Basically, in the face off being hit off the ball, you are supposed to act like a robot and not react, which means the aggressor is more likely to get away with it.
  14. Patrice Evra

    In England, the FA would overturn Evra’s sending off and ban the fan for simulation.
  15. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Good point. This highlights that the rule is daft as well. Wright has been banned for ‘successful deception of the match official’. So if you simulate with a good ref who spots it, you are merely booked. If you do the same simulation with a poor ref who doesn’t spot it, you get a two match ban. So in effect Wright has been punished more severely because the ref was poor!
