  1. If you read the article as well, they have referred at league and international level (Champions league, AFCON).
  2. I think it’s much worse that you see women being selected and jump to tokenism tbh instead of thinking that maybe they HAVE earnt it.
  3. I am sure they are good enough to be there or they wouldn’t be. In the same way Taylor and Oliver are there and dross like Friend or Hooper isn’t. It would be worse for everyone if they turned up and weren’t up to it in some way.
  4. Few football fans in Scotland apart from Rangers fans, want a Rangers victory. It’s like cheering Man Utd or Liverpool in a Champions league final. Nightmare, will here about it for ****ing years if they win.
  5. Rogic is a good player but he never seems to be able to manage a full game. I always seem to watch games where he gets subbed - either on or off. The Scottish Prem is more physical than people give it credit for but if he can’t play a full 90 up here, he’ll never manage a full 90 in the Championship.
  6. I work in an area where people are measured with metrics in a not too dissimilar way. The one thing we constantly try to drive is that stats like XG should never be looked at in isolation but along with qualitative evaluation as well. Actually looking at the quality of what is measured is important because just looking at stats alone can be misleading. There was one game, Villa v Spurs, where Villa’s XG was a lot more than Spurs but Spurs won the game 4-0. Stats alone can lead you to make a lot of incorrect assumptions and bad judgements. So whilst the clubs will use these stats, they will almost certainly be looked at alongside other evidence as well. Never on their own.
  7. I think the main thing is that his style of football just doesn’t work well in the pL and that’s a big problem. What we’ve done is embedded his philosophy and then see it simply not work or need changed once we went up. This isn’t any use because players are in used to playing that style and are bought for that purpose. You need someone who can be pragmatic and win the Championship playing football that has some chance of working in the PL, not necessarily brilliant but effective enough that you can keep the continuity between Championship football and Premier League.
  8. Scotland have a qualifier at the end of a month and we have enough injured players already. Hoping it’s not a bad one.
  9. I think the idea that they are the easiest to get behind and the media narrative of “everyone loves Liverpool” is exactly the reason people dislike them and want anyone else but them to win.
  10. He’s talking about planning with certainty. I mean you have a plan ahead of time for both scenarios (staying up or relegation) as both are possible but you don’t start taking concrete actions (I.e bringing back and looking at loan players) until you know which scenario will happen. This would be the totally normal way to plan for any range of events. People are looking for things to moan about here, this is not a problem.
  11. Yes. He’s been as much a part of the problem as anyone else, missing half the season and then invisible when he has played since coming back. At least the rest are turning up and at least trying to put in a performance till the end of the season.
