    TBF he probably had in mind the context of last season. 

    Yeah, but...

     

    There are too many people who judge last season on what happened after restart. It's a commonly recognised psychological effect, the months of competing, some decent results, but being not quite good enough, is wiped out by the dire end to our season. 21 points from 29 games is not enough to stay up, but it's not a million miles away. But that is somehow wiped out by the 0 points from 9, and it becomes incontrovertible that we had a terrible season.

     

    If your intention is to criticise the club, then I can see you will focus on those nine games because it is convenient. If you are genuinely looking for a balanced view, then you need to look at the bigger picture. Merson is clearly not one of the intellectual giants of the football world, what's your excuse?

    Yes they did say he was lucky to escape a red for that.

     

    Overall IMO decent home commentary, but the main annoyance was that they were happy to praise their players for committing professional fouls as “necessary “ but they felt our players were falling over too easily when pushed. It’s a twisted system of values.

    It’s the same for us all. We ******* loved Grant Holt when he wound up the opposition with his gamesmanship. I remember us all being incensed when the Blades blatantly wasted time when playing us, but I was in the crowd at Bramall Lane singing “Take your time Norwich City” the following season (unfortunately I also seem to remember them scoring very late on).

  3. I've not been reading this thread during the first because of a flat battery, but how good was that? Kenny has been great, Todd is working his nuts off, repeatedly winning the ball, Hugill causing problems up front, and it's even enjoyable listening to the opposition commentary! As Cambridge has said, some pace from Placheta or Hernandez could be very interesting at about 70 minutes. I just hope I haven't jinxed it.
