  1. There's finding the right balance. If you look through the Match day threads or any threads after a loss, it seems the majority are baying for LJ to leave. Playing an untested 17 year old in a 1st team match is a huge risk when you look at where we are in the league, performances, etc. It would be easier to blood 1 or 2 youngsters in a team that dominated possession, but for us where we have a few chances and the ones we do we need to capitalise on, it's clear why LJ has focussed on experienced players who can make the most of these.
  2. I totally agree with these two. Also, any instance of swearing/agressiveness 'towards' an official should be a yellow, then red for 2nd offence. Disagreeing/questioning should be allowed, but the amount of times you can just see them swearing at them is disgusting, especially as that's normally when the TV camera is zoomed in so everyone can see it. A curveball suggestion is to sort the producers out of football games, swapping camera angles just as the play is starting to focus on a slyer/manager for far too long and you can hear something going on the background but can't see it. That makes me go mad!
  3. A lad I used to work with used to get his betting fix mid-week on the African Women's Handball Division 2 games. God knows how any bookies would know the score for that, but equally why he was betting on it!
  4. Shaun Goater as it was the first season i can remember going to regularly. I used to watch Mickey Bell play and try to emulate him on a Sunday morning. The most I enjoyed watching a player was either Scott Murray or Marvin Elliott’s season where he was like having 3 central midfielders. He was everywhere.
  5. According to reports he ran into the stand, didn't get that close to the incident and was led away by stewards before anything happened. Let's not crucify him for attacking a supporter in the stands shall we...
  6. Hang on, we've had people in here who obviously don't want LJ to be here anymore stating that because Walsh has flair he will be sold, he can't get the best out of Palmer because he's a flair player, LJ only signs players who are work horses and solid on the ball, but you seem to claim LJ only relies on flair players? Which is it then?
  7. Its not even a handshake, its a sort of prolonged high five.
  8. I like the way he’s waited 3 days since the WBA game to post this rather than after the game. It’s been bubbling up inside and suddenly exploded out this morning!
  9. I used to throw a ball up in the air and then try to meet it properly to learn how to head. That multiple learning technique never did me any harkdkvialsfvkbjsdnvnkjadfvknbjekjevbjc

    The two negatives I noticed about him were for someone who looks like a unit, he's not particularly commanding in the air. Baker, Kalas and to an extent Williams will jump above the forward and power a header, whereas Benkovic seems to lean against the forward and glance it. Also, when he passed to Williams across the defence it is ALWAYS a yard or two behind him, meaning Williams has to stop and take a couple of steps back before taking it forward, rather than stepping onto the ball. Thats actually something a lot of our players do which to me is a major factor why we have such slow build up play and we often get caught with the ball when passing it about.
  11. Humans are so clever! It astounds me some of the things they do in the medical profession. Stents are another thing that blow my mind.
  12. Well he isn’t a great right back. He’s solid at this level. He’s got good crossing, poor passing, good in the air, poor positioning when defending, good aggression. He’s solid. A 6/10 for 3 games then he’ll have a 3/10 then an 8/10. Its all well and good him being one of our most potent attacking threats, but in a team that is defensively not sound, that is not a priority.
  13. I like him a lot but in fairness to Hunt who isn’t great, just solid, every time I think LJ is going to swap them, Hunt bangs in a game where he gets 2 assists and we keep a clean sheet.
  14. If he played left wing I think it would be OK, but he doesn't. He gets put in a position he has admitted he doesn't feel comfortable in.
  15. It wasn't the obsession with Rooney I found crazy, but the amount of errors he made because I don't think he knew who any of our players were. Off the top of my head mistakes were; 1) Calling Bentley Hamer 2) Calling Eliason Ellison 3) Calling Eliason Dasilva 4) LJ is unhappy that Waghorn has been booked 5) A win or draw will lift us into the play offs despite Preston playing 6) The many different versions of Fammys name 7) Going 3-0 up was a 'turnaround'
