  1. Arousal levels in pro sport is not "crap" in the company of fellow coaches, sports science professionals and other associated professionals. When talking to your supporters via local media, it is a bit of a nonsense, unless you explain in more detail using more familiar words and terms (he might've done this, I don't know). This is uncomfortably close to SO'D using coach-speak and referring to "processes and outcomes" when under pressure and asked a simple question on BBC Radio Local about whether he was "up for the fight." The simple answer to which, was, "yes."
  2. No? There's a big, wide world out there, mate, full of different (looking) folks up to various different "strokes" (if you like). You'd be surprised. Have a look....
  3. The "facts" are: 1. Two points off the target, a play-off spot (turning a blind eye for a moment to GD and the number of other clubs within one win of sixth place) 2. Eight games left to play, three points for a win, 8 × 3 = 24. 3. We can still make the play-offs We are where we are, or, using the "facts" I can say more specifically: We are two points behind 6th placed Preston with 8 games left to play, including Preston at home. I'm sorry, I don't have the facts for this.
  4. Fair points, Dave. I meant overall, that it might be dull but we are still top half of the Championship whereas with sod we were dull and bottom six of L1 (which might be missing the point of the post I replied to earlier. Not sure)
  5. Yes, he has, most definitely. I know I have found post-match comments where he has held his hands up - at least once - but cannot recall where or when. However, if I had to guess, it would've been a defeat during or after a good spell, when things were otherwise on the up and not at a time such as this, when we are one win in eight, slipping from 7th to 10th and falling off the pace. Lee will take responsibility, occasionally, when it suits him (to put it crudely). If we fall away now, again, for a third consecutive season, I don't think we will see Lee fronting up and taking t
  6. Gazza, in 1991's FA cup final, is an example of a player not at the correct arousal level (too high).
  7. Economic depression, millions unemployed, riots on the streets, Liverpool champions of England. The "new" normal?
  8. It’s nowhere near as bad as: 2016/17 when we set a club record run of consecutive league defeats 2015/16 when we were getting hammered under Cotts and were fighting relegation 2013 when we were dull, dismal and bottom of the Championship, then bottom of L1 under SO'D 2012/13 losing and being bottom of the table is worse than being dull and between 7th and 10th, trust me
  9. Wasn't it, specifically, heavy metal football? Which begs the question: which genre of music football does Lee play?
  10. Will they meet us halfway/Frankley services?
  11. Mate in Burnley tells me there is a snag, as Lee and Burnley negotiate number of windows required to get Burnley to "where we want to be." Burnley, apparently, asking: what's wrong with where we are now, you soft, southern .... More to follow
  12. It is. But we cannot go on forever saying: we're doing better than when we were shite; had a crumbling old ground; attendances of 147 to 16k; had very little income beyond season tickets and matchday tickets; were hopeless in the transfer market. Comparing ourselves now to what we were before the ground was modernised is lazy, complacent and no longer of any merit. SL won't be thinking like this, nor LJ or MA; why would you or we think like this?
  13. We were doing alright when we scraped past Fulham in December. The two home games after that seemed to de-rail us. After beating Fulham, we were level on points with them, joint third in the table; eight points off the top; +5 GD. In the thick of it. 18 games on, and we are: nine points behind Fulham, 16 points off the top, -4 GD. Slipping away.
  14. Because the less he plays, the better he gets/might be. Think he has started one game in 2020. Meanwhile, the more CO'D and one or two others play .....
  15. With any luck, they'll be Yippee aye ay-ing their way around the Championship again soon....
  16. Despite the artificial noise, you could still make out Chris Wilder asking his keeper during the drinks break just now: "What the **** are you doing?"
  17. This is the end product, the outcome, not the ethos. The easy bit is coming up with/copying someone else's ethos (the theory); what Lee struggles with is converting words, ideas and intentions into actions and outcomes on a Saturday (the practice). Like most coaches.
  18. Football without fans, is The Downs league. Or Rovers in the Banana pub league (putting family vouchers in the local paper, desperately trying to keep their crowds over 4k)
  19. You don't want yer keeper getting or acting too "busy," or hyperactive, think Maenpaa is more steady, and "rock" like, than "Bents," so I reckon ten busy bees, one rock. And then, yer centre halves, you don't want "busy bee" centre halves either, following the bloody ball hither and tither. You want them pretty steady, too. So, to sum up: 8 busy bees, two steady Eddies, and one unflappable rock.
  20. In December Lee said of Weimann: "He's such a good lad, I trust him with my life." And went on to explain this was because, to put it plainly, he will run about a lot and hassle the opposition. Consistently. Lee said: "I've got to put a team out that I trust is adhering to the Bristol City ethos and is going to put on an extremely consistent performance in terms of energy and work rate." This might explain why CO'D is in the team currently, and the likes of Palmer not. If Palmer is paying attention then it is not difficult to work out what he must do to be "trusted" and get bac
  21. But it is because you are deluded, that you can think it is not deluded, to think that. Is what I think The Bard is telling us.
  22. Trust me, mate, he won't get under Lee's nose
