We all can do that mate if we let ourselves

A good example yesterday was I was with you on blaming Brendan during and after the game 

Then when someone posted a very good post about injuries and niggles it made me think again. He had Hobson’s choice really 

If that’s your only New Years ressy you ain’t doing bad mi old son

👍

 

I see someone got Birchy’s Guide To Parle Anglais in their Christmas stocking

People need to stop going on about being 2nd and staying in the top 4.  We are only 4 points ahead of 9th and most teams have one or two games in hand.

 

If we really want to stay at the top, we need to be winning games like yesterday.

 

If you are going to rotate the squad, have a better plan for it... A couple of changes for one game, a couple for the next and so on.  Changing 7 outfield players in one go is not good planning... It's taking it easy.  

Wait, stop going on about being 2nd and staying in the top 4?! If we can't go on about that what can we go on about lol

 

What a miserable post.

Oooo, Facecloth v Col.

Could be a good one this. 

I’m not arguing with Facecloth!

He could hit me with an annotated teamsheet or summat!

😀
The funny thing is people on here STILL think I mean everything I write and don’t realise that 70% of it is a wind up

Amartey is a great example

It’s funny to rev people up and watch them go after they’ve given me stick

Bit harsh. Can’t say I know either of them personally.

I made the mistake of looking at their social media profiles about 4 years ago. 
I didn’t need to see anymore to conclude my opinion was bang on and unless they have both had a personality transplant,I very much doubt there would be much of a marked change.

Haha, yeah I guess.  Just trying to be a realist.

 

Will try to enjoy it :thumbup:

The way I see it is we gained 1 point against man utd and lost 2 here. 5 points from a tough Christmas period is no bad thing.

 

The next 3 league games are all winnable. Southampton have lost ings and are going through a sticky patch. Same with Chelsea. Newcastle are moaning about their manager.

 

The most frustrating thing for me is we're on the cusp of being a properly good team. I have to also say I thought we'd struggle up until January with the injuries but with Ricardo and soyuncu to come back there are some genuine selection headaches for Rodgers. 

 

With genuine competition for vardy and a winger who hits numbers like Barnes is starting to hit this team could genuinely challenge on three fronts in the second half of the season. That's frustrating and exciting at the same time as I doubt we'll get both of those options in jan, but it's the hope that kills you.

Well summed up Abrasive. 
 

This ‘matchday’ is bit of lottery with changes as well. 
 

If you want another positive spin, it’s a point more than Man U managed v Palace and the same as Spurs.

We play Vardy from the start we win the game clear as daylight. Anyway onto Newcastle where we can win the game with our best 11. It would be nice if sign a player to boost us in January similar to when we signed Tielemans on loan in January.

Vardy is the difference between us being mid table and challenging the top 6. That's worrying and reassuring at the same time!

We win the game, lose Vardy for 3 matches and drop 9 points from the next 3. All possibilities a manager has to factor in, and with better data than we have available.

People like @Facecloth take the forum far too seriously

I remember once taking our kid to Sheff Wednesday away and I was sat next to this real anorak of a bloke. During the game he kept fetching out his programme and marking down stats by the names of the players. He was pleasant enough, but clearly lived on his own and came to football on his own. He kind of lived for his football and his stats

I’ve wondered many times whether that bloke was Facecloth? Just how I’d imagine him. There’s many others the same though 

So can I take it that this is part of the 30% non-wind up part of your output Col?

 

For the record, I live on my own and often go to the football on my own - are you going to defame me too, or is it just reserved for @Facecloth

Or maybe Nacho scores his pen, Dennis scores his chance, and both Vardy and Youri have an extra rest

 

For sure, hindsight is a wonderful thing.  :thumbup:

Or play Vardy from the start, we don't score, he ends up playing 90 minutes as we try to get a winner, ends up aggravating his groin injury and he's out for most of January.

Not at all HPF

The thrust of my banter was at ‘anoraks’ and I feel convinced Facecloth and others possibly fall into this category

And if you read back a couple of pages you’ll notice that yet again it was actually Facecloth who started the to and fro of retorts, not me. In fact I’d ‘come clean’ and suggested I was too hasty aiming my blame yesterday at Brenda.

Of course, subjected to cheekiness of this nature, I felt compelled to ‘give as good as I got’

I’ll end here though because ‘defence’ on FT can be sometimes be misconstrued as ‘aggression’ and bans can follow (usually for the defendant) not the aggressor in my experience’

Rodgers is such a cock

A point takes us second in the PL - in a season where we've been ravaged by first team injuries and also into the UEL KO stages - and that's your take???

Just because we are second does not mean we should throw away points.  Rodgers is a very good coach - but he made a mistake here ... I hope he will learn from it

Nobody likes throwing away points. You called our manager a "cock". Seemed an extreme take to me.

There is a danger in conviction of belief without evidence, Col. There's nothing worse than having a reputation formed by kangaroo court, so whatever the fault of @Facecloth in this badinage, I have some sympathy for him, as I know exactly how that feels. I ask you to consider this, as I suspect you are also victim of this phenomenon at times.

You’ve got me with the word ‘badinage’ there HPF?
