  1. Agree and understand all your comments. I was attempting, in not a very clear reply, to explain that the aforementioned full backs are not lax in their duties but playing to a system that may not be operating in the way intended and they are the ones being singled out for criticism.
  2. Both our full backs play narrow which allows opposing team's wide players space and time to receive passes from all over the pitch, presumably to keep the penalty area space tight and not easy to penetrate. It then creates a one on one situation one the full backs reposition to cover. When we then double up to cover this situation gaps are left and often exploited in and around the area. This initial narrow positioning must be part of the tactics otherwise it would have been rectified years ago with a good rollicking.
  3. But if you represented Arsenal and was at the Gate on Sunday would you loan one of your protégés to us?
  4. Following yesterday's debacle and many comments on our lack of just about everything here is an insight I posted highlighting Leeds pre season asking a pertinent question. Guess we all know the answer now
  5. 23rd August 1958 home win against Rotherham 6-1. Following Tuesday night 7-4 win at Barnsley. The next Saturday 4-0 drubbing at Sheffield Utd. That's 22 goals in the first 3 games, and there were plenty more that season!
  6. No they forgot to do it for last season that's why there are new cards this season. Nothing to do with new branding.
  7. Dickie Down next to Terry Bush, Johnnie Giles next to Brian Clarke both played for Bristol Boys with Trevor Taunton. Steve Morris next to Gordon Lowe. Giles and Morris we t to Exeter shortly after.
  8. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49025553 Will we be prepared?
  9. After scoring 5 in 6 England appearances not including Big John in the 1958 World Cup squad!
  10. I take it you are English, not a Yank, and I'm not sure about Medellin, but the answer "no gringo, Ingles" would normally get a more positive response particularly in more Central Colombia. After all Arthur Sandes Brigade Britanica of Riflemen helped Bolivar defeat the Spanish at the Battle of Boyaca near Tunja where I visited.
  11. Yes, quite right Drew. Was trying to remember if my pay went to 12/6d or 15/- and got the two mixed up. As my school reports alluded to back 60 odd years " must try harder".
  12. Didn't really associate him with Bobby Charlton as they both probably had more hair all them years ago and BC was not so high profile then.
  13. Is that a Cornish pasty or a Devon pasty. Ginsters just over the border in Cornwall.
  14. OK I will fall for it. Noooo you can't spread jam on cream it's got to be the other way around.
