  1. Your stats are correct, 21 in total, 6 on target in 4 matches and as you also say this has panned out over the whole season so it’s not a case of using selective statistics to beat the Manager over the head with, It isn’t anywhere close to being good enough and as I’ve said before if you play this way and don’t win matches you will get beat up for it in the end. The only thing about us that doesn’t resemble bingo numbers on a Saturday is our number of shots unless we start with “on its own......”............
  2. You need to read it again......the whole thing.
  3. Compare Wigan’s effort v West Brom with ours last week. 1 shot on target when the game was dead was what we mustered. But we’re in 7th place so don’t complain about it........ 6 shots on target in the last FOUR COMBINED games.........it’s getting better I’m reading. But we’re in 7th place so don’t whinge about it........ The problem with teams who play football the Lee Johnson way is when the wins dry up the reality of how utterly dull they are becomes the major talking point!! But we’re in 7th place so don’t moan about it..........
  4. So atm it’s Bingo Balls to pick the side and Bullshit Bingo after the game.......
  5. The guy who matters doesn’t give a toss imo. He’s got his competitive Rugger team and the football is ticking along nicely enough for HIM, and he is the paymaster when all is said and done.
  6. Whatever we say about this selection he’s bang on dropping O’Dowda out of it altogether imo......
  7. Let’s hope this weeks tombola selection is a lucky one for us.
  8. Needed more box entries....
  9. Why did O’Dowda throw a hospital ball to Henriksen, what was Fammy thinking, why did Bentley display parks goalkeeper handling skills, what went through Ashley Williams head? Simple questions, not rocket science is it?
  10. We gifted all three goals on a plate with countless individual errors. That in isolation is not LJ’s fault but how many home games of the standard we saw today can he get away with? Home games are literally a chore to watch!!!
  11. That throw in by O’Dowda. Add in the fact that he is 1000000% gutless and he would never represent the club again if I was in charge. If ever a player does not deserve to wear our shirt........:
  12. We have players like Paterson and Eliasson who are not great technical players for 90 minutes but can do technically great things in one off situations and this sees us through. We don’t possess great passers of the ball and our movement is, again, great in one off situations but generally poor. Therefore we don’t control the football in any game against good opposition but we are able to compete because we score goals out of nothing. Our first goal against Derby being a prime example......decent cross, great touch back by Dasilva and bang, goal out of nothing.
  13. I think so. Looking at that table we have the LOWEST possession away from home in the entire league and the second best away record. The team has been built and set up to soak up pressure, wait for “triggers” out of possession as LJ describes it and hit teams hard on the counter. It clearly works away from home where teams come at us and we are able to play our game. The issue I have is we are also in the bottom 6 of that table at home and our record reflects that. Teams are able to dominate possession at the Gate with the difference being they don’t have to be as gung ho as they might be expected to at home and can simply pass the ball around at will until an opening appears, just like Birmingham did (and Derby less successfully). We are not able to change our game and go at the better sides to counter this. Presumably for our home approach to change we need another three transfer windows to bring in the players to effect that!!!!
  14. In fairness to Big Dave he heads about 200 balls a season out of our penalty area from opposition corners alone. Obviously as a Centre Forward we aren’t going to be expecting a lot from him in terms of tracking back. Where I agree is if you have 4 players not putting a defensive shift in then the other seven have to do a mountain of work.
  15. Bentley and........................Benkovic perhaps given he’s a £13m player? He might also feel he could get a decent tune out of Elliasson. Nobody else. But Leeds are a better side than us so no surprise there.
