Sorry but Russell must be either irrational or unprofessional or both
at 16:43 17 Apr 2024

RM decided that Baz should be in goal last night with Lumley on the bench. So, he'd decided that if Baz was injured after 30 seconds, Lumley was the right man to come on. Then, because Baz was injured in the warm-up, he decides AM should come on instead. In what world is that logical decision making?!? It doesn't make any sense, but then some of his other decisions have been pretty weird too.

The only alternative explanation that does make sense is that RM just didn't think about it beforehand. Despite the fact that he's had all season to think this through, the evidence suggests he hasn't really thought about it at all. Only when he's forced to think about it does he decide what he really wants and then he just decides on a whim. This is just unprofessional.

It must be one of those 2 things right? What other explanation is there?

We won, which is great and credit to all involved, but I do wonder what is going on inside RM's head, if anything much at all.

Leicester points deduction?
at 14:25 7 Mar 2024

There is talk in the press today that Leicester have been in legal dispute with the EFL over financial losses putting them in breach of FFP. It seems that Leicester have won the latest battle but a cloud still hangs over them. The talk is of fines and potential point deductions. From what I understand, they can get out of trouble by making player sales in June - but that is hardly the way to prepare for the PL.

Before we wish too much ill on them, we should remember that we are up against the same issue. The limit that Leicester, Leeds and Saints face is a maximum £83m loss over 3 years. It seems that whether or not Leicester or Saints get promoted, the ability to strengthen the squad in the summer will be severely limited.
81% possession

I don't understand why people are so upset about the result yesterday. You can't get better than 81% possession and that's what matters, right?
Will we be promoted?
at 12:30 18 Feb 2024

The bookies think we will, but I think the odds are actually against us.

According to the bookies we're about 4/7 on, so saying that we probably WILL be promoted. But, to me, Leeds look the stronger side and have the advantage of the final match. We're the best of the rest, but missing out on automatic promotion means we're in the playoffs and that will be a bit of a lottery. Even if we're playing well at that stage and go in as favourites, our realistic odds will only be roughly 2/1 or maybe 3/2, so the odds go against us. I can easily see the likes of Norwich surprising people and going up via the playoffs.

The bookies think our chances of promotion are 64% and I think the real number is more like the other way round at 46%. What do you think?
How did we score against Leicester?
at 13:30 16 Sep 2023

It was a route 1 long ball from Baz. One of our midgets (Fraser I think) managed to get something on it and we picked up the second ball. There was space for Edozie to overlap and make a good finish because we'd got the ball up the pitch quickly, instead of making 50 passes while Leicester got back in position.

So much for the tippy-tappy shite.
Rusty quotes after pathetic 1-4 loss
at 10:03 16 Sep 2023

"We’re on the right path"

"I don’t think there was a huge amount between the teams"

“The gameplan with the ball in their half, I thought we were outstanding."

I think I must have gone to a different game.
