....FT 3 - 1 to OHL, took their chances, Kortrijk not good enough in the last third. They were technically better and all the stats were in their favour. Nice three points though!!!

You mean after they got to play with a guy extra for an hour?

Anyone know what their music is at the end of the match? Hardly seems inspiring. If it means something then I take the comment back!

 

Also I've seen the managers photos before but tonight he looked like a lady who was going to a grannies tea party after the game.

They had chances to counter them in the second have but poor execution deprived us of more goals. We do seem to overplay when we are leading, just need the discipline and to keep things simple.

Giving the ball away way too often and too easily.

As I say, he seems to still be a huge work in progress and I'm fascinated to see what Rodgers could do with him. He's turned Harvey Barnes in to a superb player and Sowah seems to have gone from being absolutely nowhere to scoring and assisting in a very good division. Still barely 21 so he seems to have a very good future.

That's the defensive header of the year!  This will really be nervy if/when they get their second.

...I expected to see him prone on the ground with concussion!!!

You would have thought that shot would have taken his head off, unreal that he just focused on the corner and taking up his position.

Did you see the game? Before the sending off, we were controlling the game and could have scored 2 more. "A chance" is a very subjective term. Henry's header was saved from within 3 yards. His other chance got diverted by a defender to go into corner. Can't remember Kortrijk having had such chances. And i'm not being a fanboy here, because i'm usually rather critical, but saying the 2-0 was against the run of play is simply a fallacy.

They had more shots and just as many shots on target. That says nothing about the quality of the chances though. Possession has never been our aim this season so that doesn't really matter. All three goals were clear cut chances. I think Kortrijk had maybe one of those.

Yeah, the music isn't that great to be honest. I think Lizhang once started a petition to change it but it failed.

Only the 2nd time I've watched them but I cant help being shocked by the pitch and the danger it poses to the players. Mainland Europe is obviously very cold right now but it seems to me that they need underfloor heating and a new pitch. But being £16mill in debt is that likely anyone?

....could be no sun getting to that area of the pitch, you could see them tip toeing when they had to play in that area!!!

I would have suspected it was pretty frozen underneath and as you said a potential hazard.

Two shots from distance (one from open play, the other a direct free kick) and a one on one. Only the latter was of the same quality as the three chances we scored, in my opinion.

Undersoil heating, drainage and a new pitch will be installed at the end of the current season. It was planned for last season but due to the promotion final being moved to the end of August, it didn't happen (I think). 

 

Has to be said that the current temperatures are very, very off, it's as cold as -10 to -15 degrees celcius at night right now.

Our pitch was nearly perfect before the winter break, but due to the rain and the many games in a short period it's completely trashed.

 

The pitch is 4-years old now and will be replaced after this season. Underfloor heating will be installed as will a drainage system (which we don't have at the moment).

 

2 weeks ago the club made this video about our groundsmen:
