  1. Can’t afford to have no playmakers in the team. If Maddison was injured then Tielemans had to start. 7 changes but two points dropped as a result. It’ll prove to be a calamitous decision if we don’t beat Newcastle.
  2. Schmeichel Justin Evans Fofana Albrighton Castagne Ndidi | \/ Tielemans Praet <-- Perez Vardy Tactics: Don't let them draw our back line up the pitch. Stay deep and stop the space for Son and Kane to link up. Also stop defending corners like an under-11's team.
  3. They will park the bus because they know we hate it. We need to out-Mourinho Mourinho. Don’t get fooled into taking the game to them and pushing our back line up too high.
  4. If we don’t score in the first 20 minutes I feel the same. I could tell after 10 minutes tonight how the game would pan out. It’s so predictable.
  5. Wilf needed to be in the midfield tonight against Doucoure and Allan. Of all the matches to revert to a back four from the start this seemed like an odd choice. I think Maddison and Tielemans being horribly off form tonight meant we didn’t stand a chance in hell of getting a result.
  6. It’s pretty simple really and shouldn’t be a surprise by now but we are so bad against teams that are physical and well organised. It’s not just that we drop some points to those teams but we don’t get near them. We don’t look like scoring and get well beaten. We are too soft, too slow and too one dimensional. If we played Brighton or Leeds every week we’d win the league. If we played West Ham or Everton every week we’d get relegated. No chance we get top 4 with such a prominent achilles heel.
  7. Madness that Perez didn’t even get on the pitch yet again. It was like playing with 10 men with Iheanacho. Perez would have at least offered us a bit more movement.
  8. In his post match interview last night be basically blamed the result on three things; Young team, lack of aggression and needing to play a back three because of Fofana. Firstly, it wasn't a young team. Only Thomas and Fofana are inexperienced at this level and yet it was some of our more senior players that let us down. Secondly, he blames every bad performance on a lack of aggression and has done the entire time he's been at the club. So why hasn't that improved? I don't disagree with him, but that is only one of the reasons we lost last night. Thirdly, wh
  9. It was an absolute no brainer to rest Fuchs tonight and play 4 at the back. No hindsight required.
  10. Negative. Slow. Lazy. Soft. Passive. Brainless. Sloppy. Any more? We are somehow even more reliant on the counter and Jamie Vardy than we were a few years ago. We are getting worse at breaking teams down.
  11. Took up too much screen space mainly. We wanted the match to feel more immersive and in-situ, but a big time line bar made it feel more like music software than a football match. You can still rewind and skip back via the drop-down button next to the play/pause button or by clicking on the time on the Notable Events list. We are also looking into bringing back the timelime for after the match has finished.
  12. Shut down Tielemans and we are nothing. Hopefully once Castagne and Ricardo are back we will at least have more quality out wide, which is where the ball inevitably gets pushed out to.
  13. Just did a search of our bugs DB and it is logged.
  14. Just didn't turn up last night. It was back to the passive, tame, sloppy performances of the second half of last season. Incredible how Liverpool manage to tear us to pieces so effectively, especially when we are trying to park the bus. Rodgers just doesn't know how to deal with them. Still, at least it'll put a stop to the ridiculous title challenge talk. I think the returns in the next three matches against Fulham, Sheff Utd and Brighton will be a truer test of where we are at than last night.
  15. No way is that 16k seats on top of what we have. I would say that will take us up to 40-42k.
  16. Full-time job. Been doing it for 12 years now.
  17. Yeah, the in-match feedback in the Dugout is very much WIP. I don't play it as much as I used to, but I still do play it when I can. I can only really enjoy it once I stop working on it properly, so around Christmas time, or else I just just constantly find things I need to fix.
  18. Those stars are appearing too small, but that is logged and should look better for release hopefully. Also the issue with the role button and having to click directly on the text to open the menu is also logged. It was my call to remove the role circles and use stars instead, so throw all your hate towards me. Basically the old circles were really misleading, as it made out that each player is only going to be any good in one or two roles, but the way the match engine works that just isn't the case. It was putting people off picking players in roles that were appearing as yellow/or
  19. Honestly think this may be the most well received thing I've ever designed. Which considering it's effectively just a white rectangle with black text on, I'm not sure how to take that.
  20. Lockdowns will only be effective for so long. People’s enthusiasm and discipline for them wane over time. If we were still in lockdown at Christmas so many people would disobey the rules that the government might as well loosen the restrictions. I think we’ll come out of lockdown and return to the tier system after the 2nd November, but it might be that a lot more areas return to higher tiers. Either way, the whole thing is a complete and utter shit show.
  21. I think with Rodgers he is frustrating more than he is a bad manager. There is a lot to admire and a lot of good points, but then he'll pull out a bizarre team selection/tactic, or make a change in a match, that backfires completely. We know how good we can be, which he takes all the credit for, but then a lot of time it feels like it is his decision making that holds us back in some matches. He's incredibly stubborn with his style of play, but then totally unpredictable in regards to shape and player selection.
