Gotta Be Cursed

Post by Cjay » Fri May 03, 2019 9:10 pm

Trying to concentrate on the playoffs (which now the dust has settled i am excited to be in). :)

But to be so close and to fall away from autos is painful :(

After 20 match days we have been 1st.

After 13 match days we have been 2nd.

After 11 match days we have been 3rd.

And 1 match day 4th.

Thats it, never been lower all season.

Norwich have been 1st after 20 matchdays.
Sheffield United have been 1st after 2.

Norwich have been 2nd after 9 matchdays.
Sheffield United have been 2nd after 9 matchdays.

Norwich have been in the automatic places for 29 matchdays.
Sheffield United for 11.
We have been in them for 33!!!!!!

Norwich spent 10 match days not even in the top 6, Sheffield United spent 5, we never dropped below 4th!!!!!

And WE are the ones who miss out! !!!!!!!!!!!

CURSED!!!!!!

Don't beat yourself up bud. Only match day that counts is no 46.
Genuinely feel confident for some bizarre reason👍

The play offs are a nightmare
My local team were 2-0 up after 1/2 an hour
On Wednesday night at Altrincham

They got a fluke pen and equalised with the last kick of the match.
They won 7-6 on pens
It leaves ya as flat as a witches tit man :mfpa:

We are cursed to have the EFL old Troggs in charge of our League, they do everything possible to disrupted our season and keep us in this league, those that don’t believe that just see which team/players got hit by bans following the Villa games, which team are likely to face a fine as well :duno:

I heard yesterday that Sunderland have had gates of around 35k once the EFL find that out they’ll be playing their tricks with them to keep them out of the Prem watch this space

We're not cursed, we overachieved with a squad that was just not quite good enough and ultimately ran out of steam. I always thought that might be the case, given MB's style and the lean squad he prefers. It is what it is, and it's been a great season. As for the EFL; I never bought into the idea that they were against us, but that has changed this season. Brentford, Spygate, Villa; on each occasion, we were ruled against. Canos headbutts Alioski, no charge. Hourihane punches Klich, no charge. Marcelo sends an intern to look through a fence on a public footpath in Derby, £200k fine and a xenophobic witch hunt. People can scoff, but the EFL have an agenda where we are concerned, no-one will convince me otherwise. Just because you're paranoid doesnt mean they're not out to get you!

Like you i tried to never buy into the 'everyone is out to get us' vibe but you cant bloody ignore it.
No penalties in 18 months.
Bamford banned for simulation when we ended up getting no advantage from the situation AND irrespective of connection the violent intent was there.... but Ollie Watkins cons the ref into giving them a penalty twice in a season once against us and against Barnet? In the cup and gets nothing for either of them.

I know MB is as honest as they come but I hope he has learnt from this experience...the EFL will break all their own rules if it means LUFC will get punished so therefore if Leeds stand a chance of promotion whether honestly or otherwise please accept it graciously holding one finger up to the corrupt arseholes whilst sipping your champagne

The efl could literally not care less about us being in the championship....

Watch the documentary on Netflix about those people who believe the world is flat... No matter how much evidence you show them they still never accept that they're wrong!

I can go with perhaps the efl don't really like us. Which might be fair enough. But also not entirely sure that's true. But they certainly don't want us to stay in the championship 😂😂😂

This is just one side of the coin. Teams were out raging against us about spygate. The efl could have deducted points but instead gave us a tiny fine.

The hourihane punch is a tricky one, you can't really tell how hard it is. But perhaps harshly done yes, but what teams aren't harshly done by every now and again...

Bamford ban same as Gayle earlier on in the season for wba

Let's all forget roofes handball goal a d the other decisions that have gone our way this season!

With spygate i think you are missing the point. There was no precedent for ANY punishment there at all, we technically did nothing wrong as we were on public land. How many teams do you think do this on a day to day basis? Probably all of them. They also dragged the decision out knowing full well that it would disrupt both the manager and the players. If i am right in thinking we had a poor run of form during the whole saga as well.
Again with the Bamford incident, its about context. Firstly regardless of contact, the intent to harm was there. Secondly, how are we the only team with players punished when it was Villa who started the whole ruckus in the first place? How has Hourihane escaped any action for a punch on Klich?
Dont really see how you can defend that....
