Have to agree. If Zamora and Dempsey hadn't stacked it nearly every time they tried to turn or get in a position to shoot we would have won that comfortably.

With repeated displays like this, they need to water the fans to get them to come back.  :034:

I've noticed this in a few matches this season.

Hopefully with the autumn/winter weather coming, there won't be so much of a need to water the pitch, and some of our players might actually be able to stay on their feet!

I noticed that in the Blackburn game... The pitch was getting a good dousing just before kick-off, regardless of the fact that heavey rain was forecast (and duly arrived) later in the game.

My Dad got to the game earlier than I did and said they hadn't watered the pitch last night.

I thought we improved slightly and wondered if this was why - though having said that quite a few players did seem to fall over a lot in the second half.

Either way - I agree. Can't see that it does us any good.

It is done and has been done for a long time now to flatten the worm casts and ensure the ball flows freely, what happened to players wearing correct  studs? some of the pitches I played on you needed crampons to stay up right :005:

I remember a couple or three seasons back when the pitch had been watered while we all sat there prior to kick off, and then a defensive slip at the Putney End cost us three points against West Ham.....was that a Zamora goal as well?
