  1. There is plenty of talk of how we have become negative in play and yet conceding more goals (and possession) and if you look a bit deeper and compare some of the shot data figures it has been quite some turnaround and the reason why a lot of fans are perplexed. Is this really the identity of football Lee Johnson wants us to be heading in? Yes we have become more clinical (%goals per shots) which I assume is why we are still surviving this year so far at the right end of the table but other parameters are not making very good reading (data from Footstats.co.uk). For Against Played total no of shots total on target on target per game % on target % goals (from shots) Total no of shots 2019/20 28 291 (21st) 98 (20th) 3.5 (22nd) 33.68 (7th) 14.43 (2nd) 420 (22nd) 2018/19 28 377 (8th) 131 (5th) 4.7 (7th) 34.75 (5th) 9.28 (19th) 339 (7th) (position in brackets is comparison to the other teams)
  2. I do think we go down too easy (Johnson tactic) looking for cheap set plays and then when we get proper fowled its like oh he must be going down soft again. The tackle (second one) on Massengo was really shocking and could have put him out for the season with a different contact.
  3. including tonights 13 mins, Nketiah has been given only 220 mins all season and scored 3 league goals. Bamford has had around 1000 minutes game time, scored 4 and not scored since 24th August! Great striker management by Bielsa
  4. Looks like our horse punching friends have a rival village idiot https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-49823006
  5. too many with too much at stake for this to be fake news...club must have to wait for co-ordinated information and release with Stoke. Probably having a scan today and then official news would follow.
  6. to be exact it is up to 19 games you get a 1 game ban for 5 yellows, and they are not cleared as such just after 19 games you then would be looking at the next level (2 games ban for 10 yellows up to 37 games). So yes would be madness to drop Palmer for another 11/12 games to negate the chance he may miss one!
  7. and for balance this is what he looks like in the day in his bookshop. He used to live over the back of ours and is actually a really nice bloke. He attracts a fair amount because of his 'get-up' but to coin a phrase we shouldn't judge all books by their cover
  8. On for Hernandez..has about 10 mins to make an impact
  9. Really was a game of two halves which the stats will back up. First half we were really exciting to watch with Palmer and Massengo pulling the strings ably supported by Afobe and Weimann's movement. It was like we were toying with Derby inviting them onto us and then bam take that. It would have been even more if Hunt's passing in from the wing matched the great positions he found himself in (not withstanding the the assist). Second half we resorted to too many hoof balls which I would really like us to improve on. It looks ugly when compared to the free flowing first half and really doesn't look like the same team. But as a defensive test it was a great second half and showed that we can nullify good teams when we have to. Massive 3 points on the back of Saturday and quite rightly we can all dream about how good this team could become if we can keep them all fit (which is already being tested!).
  10. Predict the opposite to the last 2 seasons...slow start until mid-October while the team sorts itself out. Possibly bottom half of table and then things will gather pace and we will rip into the play offs at full speed come May. If this be true then we will need to get behind them more than ever during the first few months as there will be plenty of panicers ready to throw in the towel at the first sign of a wobble!
  11. Two glaring issue for me which are more tactical then personnnel space behind our wing-backs exploited time and time again by 40-50 yard cross field balls - Bielsa clearly watched us and could see a weekness in our set-up. cut back bloody cut backs - why when chasing back do we pile back in numbers only to over run and defend the 6 yard box but never pick up the 1-3 guys stood on the box with acres of space!
  12. finally got on (BCFC site) to see everybody leaving stage left!
  13. Really pleased for Lloyd and this exactly the right policy of the club. Sustainable investment in the academy, right manager giving young talent their break and loan systems in place to bed others in. When we get to the Premier league we won't have to sell but until then this will happen with the right price and player. Yes sad to see our own go but surely make sense in the longer run. On a side note, Brian Tinnion is surely due a cut of some of these transfers fees. What a great job he is doing behind the scenes.

    Definitely one to watch - has received rave reviews down here for the season and would fit the bill at 22 years old. If Portsmouth fail to negotiate the lottery of the play-offs and we end up needing a replacement ball carrying centre back he should be on the list of targets.
