Re: Dutch possession based football R.I.P.

Loved this quote: With us, it’s the exact opposite: ‘80% possession, played well, yes but we lose 1-0.’

Said it all.

You not watching the game? Blackett's YOUR scapegoat matey. He was marking the runner for the goal.. FFS shit team and clueless supporters

Re: BFTG - Hull

Very similar to the play-off final - can't really blame the players for having to play a system that is just a joke; totally negative, defensive formation with no obvious outlet going forward. No wonder the players look confused. It reminds me of the quote by Mourinho a few seasons ago when he said ...

Re: Conor Shaughnessy rated?

I suspect we and Leeds currently have different expectatioms for our CBs. We are probably looking for defenders who are comfortable on the ball, Leeds are looking for defenders who are comfortable stamping on someone's head. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Can this win comment of the millenium?

Re: Jonathan Lowe - does he go to the games?

On the web chat today, when asked, he described the reason for the booing after Swanseas 2nd goal was due to general disappointment and two losses in a row! No mention of the fact that the referee gave them the ball to score!! Not impressed with his reporting, I wonder if he actually goes to the ga...

Re: BFTG Swansea

What frustrates the hell out of me is that we sometimes create an imbalance during the possession/passing moments and look like we could exploit it with a change in rhythm or key forward pass...... but we don't.... inevitably the player, having gotten into a promising space, turns back and starts a...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Very odd bunch. I remember when they beat Man Utd a few years back, the camera panned into the crowd to see them celebrating and it was actually like a scene from The Hills Have Eyes. Edit, there are some shots of it in this video https://youtu.be/B0GVcezD3hs The way they are celebrating keeping NO...

Re: Is the idea of a striker flawed? Does Stam believe in total football?

I think we'll really struggled against very defensive teams without a strong no9 striker - otherwise there are plenty of goals in this team. Although of course we'd be better off if we had a proper finisher up top ....

Yes and unlike other clubs we don't announce it but keep all our fans in suspense. In fact, I think we've actually already won the league for a while but have not yet announced it yet either.
