Re: BF I follow Barnsley

I said defenders in more direct sides. Generally whenever I've looked over the years what I described is what I saw. That's why I said it. Look at our season so far stats. Cabral is second bottom. Baldock bottom. Swift is towards the bottom, but on 77%, how much higher must his PA have been against...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

I don't think I'd be looking to Citeh for stats comparisons to us. :lol: Weak response. I actually think its a perfect example - if the best-in-the-world equivalent of Swifts role also had a low % completion (relative to his teammates) despite putting on a MOTM performance, why should we expect Swi...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

Out of interest, if you had to predict which player/position/role would come out 'worst' for all of those stats who would you pick? I would probably go for the guy who is tasked with being a creative playmaker in an advanced, central position. There is more space out wide for Olise/Ovie and Joao is...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

And there was a lot of sloppy control. Swift had the lowest pass accuracy of any of our starters. The most unsuccessful touches The joint second most dispossessed Just to insert an element of objectivity. His performances have been distinctly lacklustre since the restart having been one of our best...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

Surprised by the Swift scores - he certainly wasn't at his best but he had a big impact on key moments: - wrongly called offside denying a 1:1 - broke ahead of a Joao again and just gets beaten to the ball by a GK - Joao pulled back and defender sent off after another excellent long ball from...

Re: Dave's i Newspaper award 20/21

One thing I have noticed when I have seen other teams message boards is that the layout of their message boards looks terrible compared to this fine portal.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Barnsley (h) sponsored by a trip down t'pit

I think this will be a trickier game than perhaps many expect. I don't buy them as relegation candidates like in previous seasons - it's well established they have the youngest squad in the league (23.2 for their game last weekend - a full year younger than 2nd youngest) and play a pressing style t...

Re: Goal of the Season 2020-2021

Can’t agree with Snowers about the Forest goal. It was a thing of beauty to be celebrating an equaliser within a matter of seconds of Forest thinking they had sneaked the win. I will always remember the equaliser as jnr smashed into me in celebration knocking my glasses flying. Took five minutes to...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (h) sponsored by Dean Morgan

Has Nevers been binned or injured? Nevers is an odd one. I have been really impressed with him in the U23 games I have seen. Thought he was a hot prospect. I suppose he could be injured, but otherwise I have no idea what he has done to be so out of favour. Could it be a pecking order thing? With Pu...

RoyalBlue Effing iFollow not working in the US. Says match is included ('Next available match Reading v Luton Town You already have access to this match') but is only offering audio.


Was looking forward to being really smug about it working for me, but alas also Radio commentary/audio only in Canada

Re: Goal of the Season 2020-2021

The only bad goal is the one at the wrong end. And of course the one at Watford. Other than that I can live with the scrappiest, luckiest bundle over the line if it is for us.... Don't think BT was suggesting we write a petition to the FL at the end of the season to have the worst chalked off. The ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (h) sponsored by Dean Morgan

Nice early birthday present for Dejan Tetek - he turns 18 in days.

Can't say I know much about him but apparently played well when he was called up to the England U18s last year (fast tracked as a 17 year old). Will have a another whole year at that age group

Re: Goal of the Season 2020-2021

Once this gets beyond 10/20 goals (whatever the shortlist length is) can we keep the bottom handful displayed to debate the 'worst goal of the season' too?

What make a bad goal? A deflection? Penalty almost-saved? Calamitous own goal?

Re: FFP? what?

The way I see it is that big clubs have always had more spending power and more ability to attract better players but there's always been room for a Jack Walker or a Dave Whelan to transform the fortunes of a club through their own generosity. My issue with Bournemouth isn't that their owner has sp...

Re: FFP? what?

It’s been obvious that something has to change with FFP. You can’t expect clubs to break even when they have no revenue. However it should not be an excuse for us not to get our finances in order. If FFP is scrapped/suspended it takes away the threat of points deduction but we really should use the...

Re: The only slightly more advanced than shots/possession statistics thread

One of the more advanced player-based metrics slowly dripping down the leagues to the EFL (where there is generally worse quality and quantity data availability) is Expected Threat (xT). It aims to solve one of the criticisms of xG, namely that there are many other steps before a shot takes place. x...
