    How to waste 45 mins of your life

    An hour, in my case...

    VAR not being used correctly

    Yes hairy, but not in this case. It doesn't matter whether a defender's handball was accidental or not if: The ball touches a player’s hand/arm which has made their body unnaturally bigger OR The ball touches a player’s hand/arm when it is above their shoulder (unless the player has deliberately played the ball which then touches their hand/arm) which was the case here. But I'm not sure if it hit the player's arm or not - I thought it did at the time, but the incident doesn't seem to be in any highlights.

    Supporters Survey

    Got mine a week or so ago.  It worked fine.

    We're top.

    It doesn''t feel like we''re over-shooting to me KC (but I only see the home games) - but I do agree our being held at bay outside the box.  When I think of some of the awful and unambitious opposition we''ve failed to beat (and worse) at CR, it makes me wonder of we should be starting Wes AND Maddison in those games.  Many on here consider them to be the same ''type'' of player, but for all Maddison''s superb dribbling and great set pieces, Wes has a quirky creativity that he doesn''t.  On the other hand, that would require a striker who could provide a foil for Wes by carving out some runs behind, and who would that be?  It was never going to be CJ, and now it doesn''t look like it''ll be Nelson. Sadly Srebny was AWOL for most of Tuesday night so maybe not him either.  A pity, because Wes still looked capable of making things happen.

    We're top.

    We''re also second top for possession, but third bottom for goals...  Might have to start shooting a bit more often, ideally from a bit nearer?

    Toffolo to Millwall - Free transfer

    I always wondered if he''d come good for us.  I only recall seeing him play once (in a pre-season against Cambridge United) and he looked very useful that day (but then again, so did RVW as I remember...)

    Rotation Policy

    It seems Farke could learn from the binners on this one.

    Help,, did I hear this wrong...

    Come to think of it: in recent years the likelihood of us getting a penalty has been about the same as that of a zombie apocalypse, so fair play to him.
  11. I''d rather have Bamford than McCormack, especially given the disparity in price.  But I don''t think either AN or Bamford would want it.  He didn''t get much of a chance here, and his career has stalled everywhere since he was burning up the champs, so he''ll be aware that this season could be make or break.  Pity though - he is (was?) a great creative striker.

    AN Interview

    I''d like to see him stay, but I can understand the viewpoint of many fans who feel that his tactics were (amongst other factors) responsible for our relegation this season.  So, for me, the interview was concerning: although he was characteristically frank, his body language and repeated mention of ''the club'' rather than ''we'' made me feel he will be off.  I hope not.

    Bamford v Van Wolfswinkel

    Thought he looked technically good when he stuck away that tap-in against Cambridge United.  I doubt Harry Kane could have tapped it in better.
