Re: Album of 2018 Grand Final - VOTE NOW

Tough, Barnett will be favourite and I'm struggling to part Walker and the Rap album. So to give Barnett a run for his money I'm going Masta Ace and Marco Pole 'A Breukelen Story' If you want a 1/2/3 Masta Ace and Marco Pole 'A Breukelen Story' Ryley Walker 'Deafman Glance' Faaip Gary Numan 'Savage ...

Saiz has better balance under contact than Kemar too.

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Fair point, he doesnt have the pace of Saiz or the vision of Pablo. But he has shown he can do decent things in tight areas and an ability to take up intelligent positions. Saiz was downright average for most of his career till he was the age Roofe is now. Theres time for Roofe to learn that Saiz r...

Re: Stoke v Leeds - MAN OF THE MATCH

I'm not sure he did out think MB, We were the architects of our own downfall in this one. Don't screw up for their first and we win that in the second half. They were tiring faster than us.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

Bielsa as long as possible and Corberan to take over when he does move on would be ideal

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

This is don't forget a Bielsa created problem, he's walked away before when others have been the problem but I don't think he'd run from a problem of his own making. He appears to be highly honest so asking him to lie is more likely to cause him to leave. Right now we have done little wrong as a clu...

Re: How many Points required for Promotion ?

There's no precedent for points deduction, it would take a new rule and you cannot really do that then apply the penalty retroactively or your a laughing stock. Bringing the game into disrepute is probably the charge they would levy and I'm not sure that carries a points penalty

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Just on that bit slightly confused. Imo Roofe would make a number 10, thats where he played at Oxford after all. Good number 10s find space, they avoid physical battles largely because they are allowed to roam. As a lone front man Roofe cant do that as much, his movement is limited somewhat by his ...

Didn't see the game, but based on PJ's red (yellow for me) and the Stoke player's outrageous and unpunished dive, then:

A feckin' clown
It was a second yellow. 1 game ban back for Norwich

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Welcome White Riot, big shoes to fill there as we had a great poster called that back in the day. Think we miss Beradi's ability to bring the ball out quickly and incisively. It's the weak part of Pontus' game for me. I also think Beradi is the best right back at the club. We're never, nor should we...

Also shows that refs do little in the way of research as well, if they're swayed by gossip then they're not being professional. I don't remember the last time Pablo or alio blatantly dived to get a pen...

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

I think there's just too much evidence that we're getting the short end of the stick reffereeing wise....Think you only have to look at the penalty stats to start with. We must get around 5% of valid pen claims whereas the league average I would suspect is closer to 30 %
