Re: We three kings of Orient (A)re. Saturday 31 @ 15:00

Maybe I'm being unreasonable, but at this stage in the season, for them that haven't been injured, shouldn't they all be able to play two games in five days? It's two games in five, but also nine in 29 days between the Oldham defeat and the Salford home game in a fortnight's time: we're playing Sat...

You'll all be pleased to know they don't issue refunds.
Wonders refuse to cease – EFL are refunding iFollow users for the other night. Interesting – I thought they might have given half back or a voucher for a future game (bumps up the numbers) but they've just swallowed it and promised to pony up.

Evatt says that Sarce and Crawford both covered 12km on Tuesday, the fat bone-idle bastards :mrgreen:

Re: Man up if you wanna go up. Bradford City (H). EFL League 2. 7pm KO

Doyle out for 3-4 weeks per Iles. Interesting selection problem for Evatt. He's got Arthur, Fonz and Miller who all seem to like to play as 10s or at least 9.5s. But does his system need a front-liner? Doyle often dropped deep too... One other thing on last night. Evidently, iFollow was shit for th...

Re: Man up if you wanna go up. Bradford City (H). EFL League 2. 7pm KO

Surely they will ship at least one of the two under performing left backs in Jan. What I can’t get my head round is why he has both on the bench - is it just to show them how he sees the team developing? Your not in at the moment - this is why? I'd understand more in a 4-2-3-1, as he's sometimes pl...

Re: Up for the cups in 20/21

Be some team for this game. Whenever it is! What’s the fine for dropping everyone? That last game is a fortnight yesterday, between the Crewe FA Cup game and the Salford "clash". I think by then he'll have a pretty strong idea of his second XI, but some of them may be experienced enough for us to a...

Re: Man up if you wanna go up. Bradford City (H). EFL League 2. 7pm KO

Certainly backs up the idea that Ali and Sarce are (on average) in similar positions, and I still wonder if it'd be better if they roughly sliced the pitch in half vertically - Ali takes the left (and combines with Brocky), Sarce the right (with Peter K). Surely less running. Whilst they look to be...

Well, we still have a dead-rubber (against Newcastle Kids) in the Sherpa Van, but at least now it has a sponsor name. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Papa John's Trophy, sponsored by the Official Pizza of the English Football League. https://www.efl.com/news/2020/october/papa-johns-becomes-title-spon...

Re: Man up if you wanna go up. Bradford City (H). EFL League 2. 7pm KO

What are people’s thoughts on Gnouha? I thought he worked hard without ever actually looking useful. He wins the ball in the air but seemed to flick it back and up to nobody a lot of the time? Played some neat passes in and around the box but he was never in a position to score. I mean he doesn't l...

Re: Man up if you wanna go up. Bradford City (H). EFL League 2. 7pm KO

That'll do me nicely lads. Last six league games: W2 D3 L1 (to a last-minute counter).

Still plenty headroom to improve but we're starting to look like we might not go down.

Normally I'd think Darcy should've crossed it to the unmarked man in the middle, but it was Ali :mrgreen:

Re: Man up if you wanna go up. Bradford City (H). EFL League 2. 7pm KO

Why isn't he making the last sub? He doesn't always - didn't at Barrow and Cambridge, IIRC - and it irks me a bit Makes zero sense given the current dynamics of this game and the fact we've all these matches coming up. I agree. For the record, he only made two subs v Bradford (Cup), Colchester, Bar...

Re: Man up if you wanna go up. Bradford City (H). EFL League 2. 7pm KO

Can't do this for another 18 minutes. FFS Sitting too deep. That's why we're looking shy in midfield, we've lost two defenders (delfouneso and Gnahoua) from the first half when we were pressing them on the edge of their area. Agreed. It's tough to work that hard for 90 mins Sat-Tue-Sat-Tue-Sat but ...

Tutte's f*cked, he's chasing shadows off the ball.

And we've another three games in the next 10 days.
That’s as maybe but we’ve got this one to win first.
Well then let's not keep on a defensive midfielder who's breathing out of his arse.

It's time for Evattball. Get on the ball. Pass it about. Be patient - we're winning. Run them around. Wait for the chance. Call it constructive timewasting if you like.
We just did this for 30 seconds and they had no answer.
