  1. When McIndoe randomly appeared on OTIB to sell his book
  2. Is it bad that my first reaction was “maybe we can get Afobe back with more games to play”?
  3. Are you saying that Harry is the Bas Savage of OSIB?
  4. The amount of sarcasm in this thread is insufferable
  5. Looking forward watching to the “guess the player from the tiny circle” game ensue
  6. So LJ has left Henrikson out of the squad completely despite Nagy apparently not being available, opting for two centre backs on the bench instead. What did he do that was so wrong? Is he injured? I know he wasn’t great against Huddersfield but frankly nor was anyone.
  7. Palmer must have attacked LJs family or something to be left out of that team
  8. Anyone else’s stream showing an error message?
  9. I don’t know, one of the criticisms of the team is that they don’t understand his tactics. He’s hardly speaking in plain English is he - it’s a bit muddled and abstract - makes you wonder what he’s saying on the training pitch and whether it’s confusing them.
  10. For people who can’t be bothered to go to the OS: “We’ve got to make sure we pick a team of individuals that can get that balance. It’s the Ying and the Yang versus the release of the attacking players, quality and flare more importantly, versus the steel…we have missed that in the last couple of games. That’s there for everybody to see but somebody has got to take that mantle.” I like the way he says the word “versus” twice in the same sentence.
  11. One thing that has struck me this season is the sheer amount of changes in the central defence and midfield positions this season. This is down to a number of factors including injuries, player sales and switching formations. I had a look back at the formations of all of our league games to date and I have listed the following iterations of our central defence and midfield: DEFENCE Kalas / Moore Baker / Kalas / Wright Baker / Kalas / Moore Baker / Moore Baker / Williams / Moore Moore / Williams Kalas / Williams / Moore Baker / Williams / Wright Baker / Williams Kalas / Williams Benkovic / Williams MIDFIELD: Brownhill / Pack / Palmer Brownhill / Nagy / Palmer Brownhill / Massengo / Palmer Brownhill / Massengo / Weimann Brownhill / Massengo Brownhill / Massengo / O’Dowda Brownhill / Palmer / O’Dowda Brownhill / Nagy / O’Dowda Brownhill / Nagy / Palmer / Smith Massengo / Nagy Brownhill / Massengo / Nagy Brownhill / O’Dowda / Smith Brownhill / Nagy Brownhill / Smith Massengo / Smith Henriksen / Smith Henriksen / Nagy For the purposes of the midfield to keep it simple I’ve assumed 3 centre backs is 352 and 2 centre backs is 442. I’ve also put four centre mids for the West Brom away game as I refuse to accept Palmer as a striker! I feel that it’s impossible to maintain the consistency needed to sustain a playoff push with this level or turnover of systems and personnel in the central areas. It feels like we have played every combination under the sun and there’s a real lack of cohesion to our play as a result. I don’t have much further to add tactically as I’ve never been one for drawing lines on pitches and there are many other brighter people who can do that for me, however I thought it would interest people to see the sheer number of combinations used so far this season. In a nutshell I think the only way we are going to mount a serious playoff challenge is for LJ to find system that works and avoid the temptation to constantly change the central areas. We need a solid spine to bring cohesion and understanding and I just don’t think we have it at the moment. Whether or not it’s LJs fault is open to debate (he can’t help it if a player is injured or sold) but I think from here on this is an issue which needs rectifying.
  12. Saw something kicking off near KFC, some guy was giving it large and someone was trying to put him in a black van it was all very bizarre
