  1. I'm convinced they alter it depending on the score. If it had been 1-1 there would've been at least 5 minutes (as there should've been anyway given the delays and subs) but because we had the game won they reduced it.
  2. I agree that at times we do move the ball too slowly but even recently we'd have resorted to just aimlessly playing the ball in, hoping for a lucky bounce. Now we are still trying to work positions and the get the ball in across goal, pull it back to players running in etc. They didn't lose their composure which was important although if we'd reached 80 mins at 1-1 it could've been different.

    Match of the Day 2018/19

    Murphy on tonight. "Well, Maddison, some player isn't he, Danny?" "Yeah, Gary, no disrespect to Leicester but he needs to move. Too good for them now. I don't dislike them but I just think all of their best players should leave".
  4. Deserved win, didn't panic or lose our heads after conceding and could've had more. Liked some of our play, felt we were poor at other times but you're going to get that. Great to see the strikers both score and also Amartey did a good job at right-back. Gray should be in ahead of Ghezzal who was poor, I felt, and possibly we need to break up the Mendy/ Ndidi partnership for games like this as neither are particularly creative although the workrate is exceptional. Need to back it up next week.

    Lovely English referees

    Absolute crap. Inconsistent and generally struggled with the game.

    Huddersfield (H)..up next!

    Very odd outlook to have. Annoyed at losing games but quite prepared to lose more.
  7. So if we get 9 points he stays but seven points and he's gone?
  8. Must've been great to watch for the long-suffering regulars. We should beat Glamorgan next week and end with six wins which would be a really good effort despite the past month or so.

    UEFA Champions League 2018/19

    Did McManaman really ask if he was suffering from the World Cup? He only played two games didn't he?

    The "do they mean us?" thread pt 2

    https://www.football365.com/news/top-ten-summer-signings-that-look-a-bit-pointless-fred-fabinho 5) Jonny Evans (Leicester City) We presume that Wes Morgan’s utterly catastrophic 69 minutes against Bournemouth on Saturday will prompt a change at Leicester but it is verging on the ridiculous that Evans was bought by Leicester this summer – along with two other new centre-backs – and yet Claude Puel persisted with 34-year-old Morgan as Harry Maguire’s partner. Why buy a former Premier League title winner, saying “he knows exactly what it takes, he is a winner and a leader”, and then leave him on the bench? Tellingly. Evans’ only Premier League start this season (against Wolves) reaped Leicester’s only clean sheet. Which should immediately destroy any argument that Maguire and Evans are both left-sided centre-halves and so cannot possibly play together. Prime example of seeing a result and not watching the game. Evans was completely done for pace on several occasions and almost played a back-pass too short that could've been intercepted. Just because we kept a clean sheet, it doesn't mean our defence was totally solid. Not writing him off based on that but if you'd seen the game you wouldn't have been totally surprised to see Evans on the bench the next week.

    puel chant - or lack of

    So the players we have now are better than Kante, Mahrez and Drinkwater? Who are they?
  13. Imagine the Huddersfield match is the reverse of the Wolves game. We start really well, hit the woodwork three times, have three shots on target as Wolves did yet we lose 2-0. Will people say we deserved to win afterwards on here?
  14. Sums it up perfectly. They've all been, done their stuff for better or worse and moved on. We need to as well.
