  1. Sad news. Best wishes to Cotts and yourself @Fordy62
  2. Good post Dave! I've kept some of the bigger part of it for me. No clear style and philosophy that we want to follow on the pitch and as a result less to aim for regarding our recruitment. Wells a prime example of a good player but one we did not need. Equally I agree it's naïve to just blame Ashton for this, but I'd like to see some sort of football philosophy developed from the top and I do hold Ashton as particularly accountable for that. I have wondered whether it'd be in the clubs interest (and if it would be possible) to bring someone in at that level alongside Ashton to hel

  4. Should we ship him back out to Portsmouth for proper treatment?
  5. Data usage has increased hugely in recent years and football's choice to adopt data was predictable. We're aware football uses data to analyse team's, individuals, even coaches to an extent and it can provide information on key passes, fitness, strength as well as newer statistics such as expected goals (xG), expected threat (xT) and possession value. Personally I like to read about whatever stats are available which might make me see something differently, whether it's a player's performance or a team's string of results. I think having a data guy working alongside pundits would give a
  6. Great to see Mawson back. Hoping Adelakun and Semenyo can get us off our sofa's ! COYR
  7. Can't help but think a number of fans who go occasionally or felt like they were starting to drift from the club won't be back. It's long enough that people will have lost interest in keeping up with it, or find other ways to spend their time. I personally would go as soon as we can get back in. Won't be the same having to wear a mask with a stadium half empty etc but even with restrictions in place it's much better than watching on Robins TV. Can't imagine we won't have any restrictions for a long while anyway sadly.
  8. That's come at a good time for Burnley and Dyche. An old squad there that despite overperforming was destined to go down eventually with little cash to spend, but that injection of cash should allow the squad to be rejuvenated. It'll be interesting to see how it's spent and whether, with enough cash, there's any change in Dyche's style of football. Certainly hope he's given plenty of time to implement a new style should Burnley decide to do so .
  9. I'm surprised there isn't an option to buy a monthly pass to watch the games. There is a monthly audio pass option. Could be a good opportunity to lower the price per game for fans and another way for the club to get people tuning in.

  12. They have a clear structure from top to bottom regarding how they want to play. Lots of similarities between Pochettino and Hassenhuttl. It's what we're lacking at our club. There's no clear style of football or philosophy we're aiming for and it can all become a bit scattergun. A philosophy makes succession planning of managers and players easier. Rather than chopping and changing playing styles between managers you can bring in the right man to suit the style of play at players at the club. That's the key, finding some who aligns with that broad philosophy. Look how they didn't just go
  13. Gutted we didn't offer him a contract as I loved him. Can fully understand why though. Two serious injuries in the two seasons before hand, younger promising central midfielders coming back from loans/ Williams made available due to Wigan's circumstances. If we gave him another 2 year deal and he got another serious injury while Walsh for example was on loan doing the business at Championship level for Coventry the club would be getting slammed for their decision making then too. Enjoyed watching Smith on Saturday too, he did well.
