Was going to say that it is about time we had a goal from Stewy well another week to wait

Downing off, Cranie on.

 

Inviting pressure needlessly again

I hope West Ham get docked points in addition to forfeiting the match to Burnley, horrible club with disgusting fans.

 

A points penalty carried into next season might be a good help

What's weird is I would have assumed this sitting back to be a Pulis thing, but with the way he's waving them forward and going mad it clearly isn't.

Indeed. Something in the players' collective mindset?

 

Sounds like we're under considerable pressure from lowly Barnsley. Not ideal!

So what’s stopping the momentum, fitness?

Maybe TP shouldn't put a defender on for an attacking midfielder then?

Absolutely no idea, Think Besic going off for a rusty Baker didn't help, but we were starting to sit back even before that. 

 

We're just not doing things we were doing earlier in the game, we were pressuring high up the pitch, Friend was pushing forward, both of those things have stopped, we're not winning any 50/50s anymore.

    • No idea on team today due to possibility of Tav being injured. A free hit really for us. My best guess.             Bettinneli Dijksteel                    Bola          Hall Fry McNair          Howson Saville Kebano.    Bolasie.    NML
    • Funny you should say that, the latest rumours in the papers are that FIFA are wanting to introduce "robot linesman" for the World Cup next year. Not sure how well it would actually function, but linesman are being made gradually obsolete.
    • The sooner VAR is scrapped the better as far as I’m concerned, it’s absolutely ruining the flow of games, players score but have to wait until they are told the goal was allowed and the decisions are all just as contentious as those that used to be given, pre VAR. I hate the new fad for linesmen not flagging offsides, someone is going to get seriously injured playing on, when the flag should have been raised, there is barely any point having referee’s assistants any more.   I can understand the idea of VAR for clear and obvious errors, but that’s not how it’s being used, the remote ref is pretty much doing the on pitch officials jobs for them and don’t get me started on those marginal off side calls. It’s obvious to any one who has played football that the momentum of the forward will cause them to lean towards the goal, whilst conversely the defender will be leaning forwards the other way. Offside should be judged on where players feet are and nothing else and that can be done by the linesman without the need for VAR.
