  1. The return of Eros

    I think it makes sense not to rush Eros back so I think LJ will probably persist with Wright at RB. If we do that, however, I think we play Leko on the left and COD on the right. Leko seemed to need the fullback pushed up more to help occupy the opposition's midfield and keep them on the back foot - this lets him get on the ball properly. Wright has done well but he was rarely past the halfway line. In all honesty, I'd play Vyner and give someone a rest. He will get forward and whilst he made some errors defensively he needs game time to develop. I'm not underestimating Bolton but if he doesn't play in games against teams that are struggling when Eros is not fit he really should be out on loan. And in this case I think there are good tactical reasons to have him in/
  2. How big a part does psychology play in sport ?

    Quite possibly. It's actually a pretty good, easy read and quite interesting.
  3. How big a part does psychology play in sport ?

    It can be huge. Check out this guy Steve Peters (link) credited as being a huge part of building up British Cycling to the level it is today. Is now very senior within British athletics. Also credited with helping Ronnie O'Sullivan rediscover his form and was personally thanked by ROS after 2017 masters win. Also credited with helping british sprinter Adam Gemmil and Liverpool in their first season under Rodgers. Having said that I believe he also worked with the England team in the build up to the Euro's so it shows Psychology can't-do the impossible! Has a good book out about applying his principles and how they can apply to everyday life called the Chimp Paradox.
  4. The return of Eros

    It's a great problem to have, I think you could have any two of Baker, Flint or Bailey and have a decent pair. Baker gets the nod for most because he likes to play on the other side to Flint and Bailey. I'd personally go for Bailey but I'm glad it not actually my choice. Whoever misses out is unlucky and LJ is going to also upset some fans with whoever he picks. I'd actually complicate things further and suggest Vyner should be playing Tuesday. He should be rested, it a home game so he should be well supported and if we're not going to play him in home games against clubs like Bolton when Eros is injured he really should be out on loan.
  5. Next 5 League Games

    Last time I was there we stole a draw. And we literally stole it - although to be fair They were walking the division at the time.
  6. I am actually able to count to 10 in German so clearly, I'm in a good position to be critical.
  7. Loan watch.

    Moore, Morrell and Hinds all got game time for Cheltenham today sounds like Hinds was unlucky not to score late on.
  8. Very good report Ole and I agree with the ratings. I think it was brave to start Leko away to Norwich and an exciting selection (one I pretty much agree with given the last couple of performances). So my next bit is very much written with hindsight. I think Pissanno is the key here - if he is playing he will push forward work the winger defensively and give more space to Leko. If he is not playing then COD is probably a better option, he offers defensive support for Wright who is having to play out of position and will work up and down the pitch almost like a wing back - offering support upfront and at the back.
  9. Next 5 League Games

    I like this thread, It mirrors the way LJ said the club look at games in blocks rather than as a whole. In many ways, a much better way to judge progression than league points/positions as the teams in the league + squads change so much season to season.
  10. Apparently, we didn't have a single chance and were camped outside our box? Very onesided view of the game. And what exactly is a 100% chance?
  11. Sheff weds away train.

    Very jealous, Hillsborough is an away day I've not managed to do.
  12. Next 5 League Games

    6 or less - poor 7 - passable 9 -good 10-12 - very good 12+ - incredible.
  13. Looking back and looking forward

    Wow some pretty hard responses to a pretty reasonable post. He is not saying we can't possibly be top six or push on above 8th. He is not saying this is not what we're already doing. Simply being realistic and not getting to carried away yet. We are only 9 games in.
  14. Found this from their pre-game predictions They are eight games unbeaten in all competitions. Let's not make it nine. My Bristol Rovers supporting friends are desperate for us to stop them in their tracks. Come on City.
  15. View from the Norwich forum: That was woeful! Their keeper didn’t even make a save! We have become more boring to watch than we were under Hughton! A decent draw, I suppose, but feel a bit numb upfront as we don't look like we're going to score when we attack. Bristol havent really created that much either, can only remember Gunn making one decent save all match.. pretty poor game all round.
