  1. We all say that before the jaegers
  2. Suspect so, but IIRC the wider rules around loans and player registrations mean they can only recall during a transfer window. So we've got him until January regardless.
  3. What struck me was the announcer saying that the goal was scored by "number 20, Jamie Paterson!" Someone get that man an updated squad list.
  4. The Colossus of Rhodes straddled the harbour of Rhodes, in many ways it formed a Gate to the city. It was a statue of Helios, the god of the Sun. The Sun emits light, which is part of the electromagnetic spectrum. 5G is transmitted using another part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Diedhiou is a god.
  5. I'd pick out Deep Completions as the most satisfying of those. Not only are we top, but that's a dangerous, aggressive statistic to be doing well in. Nice to see less of a reliance on crosses (although I think we reverted to that against Villa). Agreed on shots blocked. If we can get "shots against" below 10 per game then that would be fantastic.
  6. See my post above mate. It's an old wives tale. The exception is the form for the month for which it is awarded, not the fact that such exceptional form is not continued. Essentially, we've been perfect so far - we're very unlikely to continue that perfection across another 6 matches. We can expect to regress to a lower ppg in October - likely around 1.6 ppg if we perform in accordance with the average month following a manager winning the MOTM from the past ten years. From 6 games we could therefore reasonably expect 10 points*, so perhaps 3 wins, a draw, and a couple of losses. Or 2 win
  7. Thanks Dave, yeh I think we spoke when Holden was appointed about the idea of targeting an improvement in the shots for/against - goals for/against will naturally change, and as a result you should be more likely to win. Thanks for posting the passing stats as well. I think my number one take from those is that we can see an improvement in the number of attacks that actually end in a shot. that was a big weakness at the end of Johnson's reign - I said at the time that we were a counter-attacking team that had forgotten how to do the attacking part. Have you looked at how we compare
  8. If clubs are resistant to fan ownership - and there may be certain things in their constitutions, or the constitutions of their holdcos, that prevent this, then at the very least I'd be looking to get clubs, or at least the stadia, declared as assets of community value. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asset_of_community_value Some clubs and stadia are already listed as such, and it provides some protection, in the form at least of notices, communications, and moratoriums on the sale of these assets. If a condition of receiving government cash was the application and listing of the stad
  9. Just to jump on: I'd love Dean Holden (and by extension Downing and Simpson) to be MOTM for September. I'm still disappointed with the manner in which he was appointed. The club need to review how they did that, and how they communicated with the press and public through the process. However, the new triumvirate have clearly improved us. For me the most impressive thing is that we are now a team who can get better over the course of a match. We can turn the screw, suck a team in and then hit them when they tire, it's impressive. Also, although still a small sample size, our average
  10. Precisely. Only takes a quick Google to find the following (and many other explanations) https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.racingpost.com/sport/why-the-efl-manager-of-the-month-award-is-a-blessing-not-a-curse/399338/amp I investigated EFL Managers of the Month in the ten seasons 2009-10 to 2018-19. For every month from August to April an award was given to a manager in the Championship, a manager in League One and a manager in League Two. So there were three awards for nine months over ten seasons, a total of 270. I noted the results of a recipient’s team in the month for which the aw
  11. IMO this is a far more impressive win than the one against Stoke.
  12. I think we've done well so far. We just have to be conscious that this Sheff Wed midfield is a couple of levels above Stoke. Their energy and sharpness is excellent. That punishes every midfield pass of ours that is less than perfect. We need to be a little smarter in the middle. Makes it entertaining to watch though. Hopefully people can see why I reckon Sheff Wed could comfortably make up the -12 points.
