  1. Christian Vieri was the ultimate form of JET, had all the physical and technical attributes combined with the work rate. When you're that size your body breaks down trying to do that.
  2. You can even use VAR to make sure all of them get booked!
  3. It's the most efficient use of money (other than maybe a world class academy or recruitment team). If you could guarantee that they're going to get more out of a set of players than someone else. Where's that guarantee though? Yeah you're right, and that's why teams over spend, chase the dream and go bust. Just sign this player, if we go up it's pocket change. Just sign this manager, if we go up it's pocket change. You always have to ask the question, but what if we don't go up? To which the joke will be, that's why we have LJ, to ensure we know the outcome. We have to be responsible in what we do. Because that's how SL wants the club run.
  4. "Called out" and "swipe" just aren't there unless you want it to be there. Your need for validation through numbers is confirmed by what you say, and that's why I pointed it out and am critical of it. I think your post is great. But i do really disagree with the term calling out as I do with Major's post. Explaining isn't calling out. I'd say explaining is the neutral term while calling out is an emotive term you're choosing to use which in my opinion is unjustified.
  5. You use tabloid "journalism" techniques. "Swipe" at Ashton. "Challenge" Lansdown. Why are you, the supporter of Bristol City, trying to do that? They do it because they want people to click. Why are you?
  6. Bielsa failed last season and I wouldn't call a 4 point.. or possibly two if Forest win the game in hand a significant gap. So proven failure in English football. Leeds expectations are to go up automatically. A rookie manager in England. No history in the championship. As many promotions as LJ has here. Also his teams destroy themselves because of the harsh methods. He's never anywhere longer than a couple of years. I actually love Bielsa, and his contribution to the football game and my personal enjoyment of it, but if you want to shine the same light on him as you do LJ, there's stuff there as to why you wouldn't want him. Short term, high cost, high risk. You can see why SL doesn't do that when he's aiming for sustainability.
  7. The options off the bench to go win the game were Semenyo... and O'Dowda. And he even talks about possibly putting O'Dowda on earlier but he thought Pato looked dangerous. I actually totally agree that the team on the pitch was the right team to go win the game because of the number of good chances WE were creating. And I was thinking maybe O'Dowda on a bit earlier, and that's it. You don't have to make subs to make subs. If you've (not you specifically) complained about the "Tombola" then what are you doing complaining about him NOT making changes? I dislike the sensationalism of the fans these days. He's sending a message, he's challenging Steve Lansdown. Blah blah. Maybe he's just trying to win a game and saying how things are. People should leave the headlines to the Journalists. The disgusting obsession with attention has infected OTIB and its posters. Likes and replies are not a measure of self worth.
  8. Matty Taylor 1 in 2 for Rovers 1 in 7 for us. Must be LJ's fault and absolutely nothing to do with the step in quality /s Both the current strikers are 1/3 ish and do lots of other things. Fam holding up the ball and at defensive set plays. Weimann's work ethic..
  9. I'm not a club rugby fan particularly but I think this is great news. I think this is very healthy for club rugby. I wonder if they'll be allowed to come back up.
  10. https://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/teams/plymouth-argyle/11912055/plymouth-3-1-mansfield The good attacking and horrific defending of our number 14. Why is he playing vs children? He looks so much bigger than them! Bakinson
  11. He's injured, couple of weeks away from the last presser.
  12. There's that absolutely incredible bit of strength, balance, and hold up play that he did right before the Palmer pass to Brownhill which effectively won us that game. Then nothing else. At all. But thanks for that.
  13. Left sided central defender and a striker or two. The issues don't change by changing the manager. Diedhiou had great chances and missed them. Like all the defeats except Brentford we've just missed chances to go ahead.
  14. Every single championship team has repeatedly said not good enough. He's in league 1. Come up with decent reasons to bash LJ please.
