General Discussion / Re: Scotty P
« Last post by Finnans Right Peg on Today at 06:06:45 AM »
I like the job Scott has done do far when you consider he is trying to bed in the new front three and new players in midfield it takes time .
The one negative I have is that he takes too long to make subs there are plenty of games where we looked leggy but never made the sub or only made it when we conceded.

General Discussion / Re: Leeds certainly are
« Last post by The Rational Fan on Today at 05:08:17 AM »
the fitness freaks of The Championship.
Barnsley out on their feet but 7 minutes from a point, when suddenly bish bosh end up losing 0-2.
Leeds are getting these last minute results with alarming regularity. Wish we looked half as fit as them with 15 mins to go yesterday.

Knowing their coaches win at all costs history, can we request six drug testers when we play them??


Same every year. I heard an interview about Biesla from another manager. He makes them work super hard and as the season draws to a close, they are knackered and thats why Leeds seem to always have a massive drop in form.

I think they will go up this year personally though.

Everyone knows Bielsa’s fitness methods, at Marsellie his team was coming 1st but “run out of gas” around January coming 4th and with Leeds his team “run out of gas” again a little later.

Knowing Bielsa, he hopes to drive his first XI team far enough in front by the end of winter, bench players like H.Costa can take them home after they start to get tired.

In the end, if there is a ten point gap by 21st Dec we could probably still catch them provided we beat them twice and finish the season very well. We just need to start getting two points per game until christmas.

Often I find the network commentating to be crap so I tune them out while watching on a different venue I listen to GJ and Jamie. 

Rather listen to true black and white fans then uder dribble  049:gif

Well done to the United Nations winning a meaningless test against a severely hungover Australian side. Unfortunately for the UN, the prize and what you ultimately play for was lost after the 4th test.

Congratulations to Australia on retaining the Ashes. By far the better side throughout the series. Job done fellas, time to sink winners piss  049:gif

Sorry to disagree there chaps, depends on one's circumstances I guess, but if the difference is listening to some BBC/Radio junkie commentating on Fulham compared to J & J commentating, then there is no comparison, it would be the same as someone who is a massive NFL fan compared to me, who hasn't got a scoobie and even less interest in the AF 'sport'.

Not being able to attend games, or even the opportunity often to attend games, puts a few perspectives on things for me.

Nothing good is free these days, except perhaps the air we breathe (in some places) and the views of nature (again in some places), oh, and death, that's often free also, but you pay for everything else in this modern world.

General Discussion / Re: Betts is shocking

I would agree that he's been off the mark lately. I also would like to see Rodak. However, the goal he conceded shouldn't have happened because he should expect that physicality, and instead was acting as if a foul should've been called. That's where his focus was - and that is what was shocking to see. It was the most basic of not being switched on. He got caught out - and it cost us dearly. I hope Parker addresses that lack of focus for the next match.

We have often have Denis Odoi, MLM, KMac, Johasen and BC.Reid on the bench, all good players but prone to a few too many errors to make the first XI every week. Since returning from injury, Betts is no different.

I go to games and IMO his distribution is fine.

Where he plays it short, I suspect that's a tactical instruction rather than his own personal choice. Same goes for the alleged "time-wasting".

His problem is the more basic stuff - he's just not a great shotstopper, and can't deal with crosses.

Reckon with Rodak in goal, the more direct route to Knockaert or Cavaleiro may be used. We play it short I agree because of Parker, but also because Bettinelli can’t distribute the ball more than 5 yards.

Yes England have deservedly levelled the series, and Watford levelled with Arsenal.
