  1. I was there a lot but, remember little of it.
  2. Thanks, I fully expect one. Obviously we don't know the background to decision making, only the consequences. Such as, Wiemann scoring 5 in the first six games when played centrally, then rarely scoring when displaced by Diedhiou. It would appear that the team as a whole was stronger with Wiemann on the right, utilising his speed and tenacity, probably resulting in fewer goals though. Who's to say they weren't the right decisions overall.
  3. I don't suppose the reintroduction of our defender and captain into the squad and team had anything to do with it. Somewhat like the reintroduction of Diedhiou when fit, last season coincided with our demise.
  4. I think everyone should care that the officials don't get things wrong. Didn't affect this outcome but, others will and have. So if you don't think it's important for officials to get things right, why have them.
  5. Simple answer really. We need a top class keeper who will be available more regularly than Maenpaa. Max is too lightweight in certain departments and could do with a seasons loan to toughen up and sort out a few things in his game. We can't risk relying on someone who's good but, prone to mistakes, if we're going to step up, which appears to be the plan.

    Conceding Two

    That's a different matter. I refer solely to the use of extra defenders. I suppose you could argue that they've been brought in to protect the keeper, but even that hasn't worked. I've seen BW come into an established defensive partnership to make three, and it's gone wrong, with players being confused and getting in each others way, when previously they would have known where their partner was. Seems strange to alter a perfectly functioning defensive partnership to counter the opposition. Midfield or striker rotation I can agree on.

    That would be fine and ideal if it actually worked for us. It would appear that it doesn't. You could go round in circles with this, I know, I've just done it. During the game yes, and on odd occasions, I agree. It just seems that we have used the wing back system and three CBs during that thirteen game run and conceded more than in the previous thirty one games, on the face of it, it would appear that we have more CBs fit, so as they are all good players, they get included more regularly and basically, mess up the unity of the team.

    Strange then, how the team were quite successful when not being changed to account for other teams countering us. So ends up getting done tactically to avoid that situation.

    Conceding Two

    The last thirteen games has seen us concede two goals on eight occasions. The previous thirty one games saw us concede two goals on eight occasions. Not sure if this is the reason but, we have suddenly been playing with an extra defender in the team (three at the back) during that thirteen game sequence. Just seems a bit of a coincidence that the tried and trusted four at the back was changed and we've started conceding more goals. The manager likes to have Bailey Wright involved, though it was not always him in the three and we never played every game with three at the back. So perhaps it's just a question of the team being disrupted during those games. To me it would be a question of if it aint broke, don't fix it. Thoughts.
  10. Ok, my mistake. So it was the closest seat next to the cheaper seats, as there were no others available at the time of purchase. Some might say this an intentional act by the sales team, to sell the more expensive seats, then release further seats in the lower priced areas, which does happen, as people have stated and I've witnessed. That is the frustrating part, seeing seats become available, sometimes in batches, where we could have been closer together. Still a very expensive experience regardless of area, as we had no choice, and bought a week before the game. I know it sounds like I'm griping but I'm not, Just pointing out that some people are not attending for various reasons. The sales team have probably got it off to a fine art, knowing when to release tickets relating to the amount of hits on the ticketing site.
  11. Sorry for late reply and not to be picky but, this was in the Lansdown W13, not the most expensive area.
  12. I know there are ways to pay less but, My wife wanted to sit in the same area as myself. She had a half season ticket last year but couldn't afford to renew this time. So we've relied on spare tickets and a few cheaper purchases. Membership just increases the overall price, unless it's used regularly. She was thinking of buying one for the upper Lansdown and climbing down over the front.
