The chattybox - anything EXCEPT football

Yeah was a proper tense last 10! Exeter could have been down to 14 much earlier, thought Slade was a little lucky.

Considering Exeter were only promoted to the Premiership 10 years ago, it's really impressive they are now champions of Europe.

Not the usual rugby post from me today...but is anyone else interested to see the "Major announcement of exciting news" that NASA is going to be making about the moon? 

I've seen a few rumours that think that the announcement is that they have actually found water on the moon. Which would have huge implications on the 2024 manned missions they are planning.

So NASA have announced that they have found water molecules in the surface of the moon. But really importantly in the sunlit regions, not just the poles of the moon, indicating that the moon has a lot more water than first thought. Which is a big step toward a permanent lunar base.

NASA believe the water most likely got there when a soccer ball landed nearby following a Marvin Johnson cross.

Nah, it was probably Chris Waddle's pen from 1990. 30 years to cross 250,000 miles sounds about right. 😁

 

 

Wait..we're not supposed to be talking about football!

Anyone else keeping tabs on the US election?

Current scoreline: Biden 224 - 213 Trump

However if the remaining 9 states go the same way as last time, it'll end up Biden 255 - 283 Trump.

Just going to take Michigan to flip (currently Trump 49.4% - Biden 48.9%) and it ends Biden 271 - 263 Trump.

I’ve always thought that Trump would get a second term and I’m still convinced that he will, it’ll be close but he’ll get the states that he needs.

It's like our game last night. Really exciting at first, then a bit boring after that...

PA looks sown up for trump, but lots of postal votes and big city votes to count yet, so it could still go blue. I hope so, can't take another 4 years of orange face spouting rubbish.

Yeah I've been keeping tabs throughout the day. Barring any major twists Biden will win in my opinion. Nevada, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan and Maine it looks like he will win.

Wisconsin and Nevada are currently close, but he'll edge it on the postal vote. Earlier today Trump had a 7.5% lead over Biden in Michigan (When 71% votes had been counted), Biden has cut that gap to just 0.5% with 87% of votes counted. Can see the remaining 13% being heavily skewed in Biden's favour.

I think there is too much of a gap between the 2 in Pennsylvania. I think North Carolina and Georgia will swing Trump's way, although they are incredibly close too.

BBC are expecting results for Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia and Arizona today.
If (big if) Biden wins those 4 states, he'll be on 277.

    • What a great result and I loved the lineup! Amazing how we didn’t crumble and let in loads of goals with Roberts in the team. Hopefully he gets more involvement going forward.    nice to see Spence and Johnson doing well and getting some credit too as that hasn’t happened much so far this season. Bringing them on when we are ahead may be a useful tactic given they will be more likely to have space to run into which suits them.    I know Watmore was a bit rusty as we’d expect but I think if he stays fit he could be a real bonus for us this season. 
    • Interesting question really, to which there is no easy answer. I guess it’s probably one of the essential questions of football strategy. Perhaps one of the reasons behind our excellent defensive record (so far) is that we do press, thus containing the opposition in their own half. Although playing the ball around in midfield might open up more options, it does give the other team more time to organise their defence. There is a lot to be said for counter-attacking football – basically the element of surprise – but it is risky because you are playing too much in your own half and over-relying on your defenders. I’m not a great fan of that, however good they are. To be honest, I’m quite happy with the way things are at present. Effectively we scored twice tonight (I don’t count own goals) and we were pretty clinical, which is a welcome change.  
    • Second the counter attacking style, fortunes have changed once I tried to use a high press as opposed to dominating the game with possession on Football Manager 21 haha!
    • I'd agree, with the squad available to us I don't think a full team high press quite works for us. I think sitting deeper, not pressing  as high up and letting the opposition push forwards to open up space behind their defence suits us best, with team in it's current form. Combine this with situational high presses like the first part I mentioned and as you say an emphasis on making the most from set pieces too could well be a real good tactic for us. I do think we have these basics in place already, but as you say a bit more adventure in certain areas could make all these little parts a really effective whole.
    • I'm not a massive fan of the second way and it is the way we've set up more often than not this season. But even with that general tactic I feel like there's better ways of exploiting it and we actually managed it in parts tonight - to me the key is set pieces. It we get the ball up early, do our high press then give the ball asap to Roberts, spence and tav in particular then they will draw fouls and corners. We just need to then be better at capitalising on these opportunities when we get them. It's not pretty but I do think with a couple of tweeks, the major one being more adventurous wing play, we can score a lot more goals in this system than we are.
