  1. For me the honesty is really refreshing, he says it’s “my team”, whereas we all know it’s not. He is taking responsibility though. We ( pre DH) had someone who took zero responsibility, and would have complained about lack of leaders and thrown players under the bus after that today. This is a proper manager, let’s hope he’s around for a long time!
  2. Do we not have about a dozen players out of contract ? If so, I can see him being able to create a whole new team.
  3. They don’t seem to do well against us, if this quote is correct. I think we've lost eight of the last six games against City, although that's probably not especially relevant to today's odds.
  4. This is going to sound negative, but it’s not intended too. As a whole the Bournemouth players looked far more comfortable on the ball, always had options, and looked like they had another gear to go into. We played well at times, closed them down very impressively ( which is a massive difference from a few weeks ago) and worked hard. Going forward we looked very hopeful for much of the game, we didn’t build in midfield by keeping the ball and allowing runners to get forward. Hence, we ended up with Fam totally isolated, and played the ball forward far too early. Pearson wi
  5. Decent performance, but we look devoid of ideas going forward. Fam totally isolated all night.
  6. I ‘think’ World Cup stadiums have to hold 40,000, so it would need more than a new Atyeo stand.
  7. I remember that well, tickets for the play off replay were meant to go on sale at 9 am,the morning after the 2nd leg at Walsall. I got to AG at 8am, and they had already sold out. To say I was fudging fuming is an understatement!
  8. Pemberton was caretaker manager twice if memory serves me correctly.
  9. Agreed, and they normally would flag for a penalty, ( well now they go to the corner flag) but he was 60 yards from the handball, so I would imagine the referee was closer and possibly had the better view. I haven’t seen whether the Lino did go straight to the corner flag or not tbh, but imagine he would of if the ref communicated it was a penalty.
  10. I’m enjoying this podcast, it’s obviously far more enjoyable when we win though. Plenty of good chat and banter. I think we all wonder why DH was given the job at the start of the season, there were some interesting thoughts on why this happened. Just one point I would like to pick up on, regarding Swansea’s penalty, why did Ian?? feel that the Referee should have to look across at the linesman, when the linesman are linked up and communicating constantly with the referee. If the linesman thought it was handball, he would have instantly told the ref in his earpiece!.
  11. Lots on here just hate referees, end of. It becomes boring reading the same ones slagging them off week on week.
  12. Bentley put both hands to his face at the moment the ball hit Palmer!
  13. A foul is a foul, simple. If they don’t blow up for the soft fouls the game gradually gets out of hand. Referees are there to control the game, too many games used to get out of control, that’s the reason why referees blow for what you class as ‘soft’ fouls.
  14. Look at Bentley’s reaction when it hits Palmers arm/chest, tells you everything!
  15. A directive was sent out to referees two seasons ago re kicking the ball away. Basically, don’t book players for the little 10 yard kick aways, book players for the more serious offences. As for the other things you mention, other than time wasting ( which the referee will add on anyway!) do you not think the players should take responsibility for these? why don’t they stop doing these things, rather than forcing the ref to make these calls, then ‘him’ getting accused of being over officious!
