    He's coming on, he needs game time and patience but there's a player in there.
  2. That's a shame for them. With eight first team players out of action for Stanley, the blue few might have had a chance of a draw.

    Honesty is far better than the bullshit we'd have got from LJ, and he says "we" which his predecessor couldn't do except when winning. Can we analyse the cause and do something about it? We'll see.
  4. Crap performance, crap result. Sometimes it happens. It's very easy to make a midfield with few outlets look weak, just be very cautious and defend deeply enough. No need to have a revolution just yet but some of our results so far have been better than our performances, which not many have acknowledged. If we don't improve quite a bit over the next few games and the great point return we've had so far starts to look like a blip we might have to rethink whether this shape and approach is right. Quite early to panic though.
  5. Streetwise is usually just code for cheating. We haven't ever had a team that didn't cheat enough, we have had teams that were too soft. I want to see our players going in hard, 100% with commitment and making sure opponents know they've been in the game. I don't want them diving, feigning injury, mucking about with the penalty spot or trying to get opponents carded. It's not like this is particularly hard to understand, the line is easy to see.
  6. I used to score for fun against defenders that relied on cheating back when I played, they did it because they were too slow or too weak. Cheating didn't work for our players on the weekend either did it? I'm not taking a moral high ground here, you're taking a moral low ground. I want to see better standards from our team.
  7. Putting the ball in the wrong place is cheating. Talking to a penalty taker isn't, unless they're in their run up. I'm not sure what your definition of cheating is but the simplest one is "deliberately breaking the rules to gain advantage". There's no need to do it, it's cheap, crap to watch and the sign of a player without the belief to win properly.
  8. Cheating to score a goal through unsporting behaviour is pretty comparable to cheating to prevent a goal through unsporting behaviour I'd say. If all you're suggesting is that we should have different rules for "us" and "them" I guess we're not really debating anything.
  9. Bet you felt the same about Maradona. It's simply cheating.
  10. Got one thanks. For those who seem to have trouble with the morals of this, here's a simple rule: if you wouldn't coach 7 yr olds to do it, then it shouldn't be done. Not surprising cheating is so rife in the game when you have so many fans who can't see the difference between hard but fair and cheating.
  11. No, you don't. What we had to do to compete yesterday was not give away a stupid penalty. Cocking about with the penalty spot had no impact except to make us look bad.
  12. Our players shouldn't be doing that and our fans shouldn't be defending it. It's cheating.
  13. I prefer us getting the ball forward quickly, I don't think our shape would work if we did anything else - under LJ sideways ball usually lead to no movement and punting. What I'd like to see is turning over possession further up the pitch by pressing more (carefully).
  14. It's on the ball so it's serious foul play not violent conduct. The offside is irrelevant to it, I don't know how he stayed on but it wasn't because of the offside. It was a worse challenge than the one Richarlison has just been sent off for.
