Re: FV Recruitment Model

Burnley just feels more old-school sensible financing. Picked up good 'uns from the rags like Michael Keane and Dwight McNeil but muich of the rest is taking a gamble on players too good for the Champo whom the other Prem clubs won't touch; sometimes it works, sometimes (Andre Gray) it doesn't. I w...

Re: FV Recruitment Model

Interesting you mention Peterborough. Last summer, they hired a number-cruncher off Twitter - Sheffield United fan @Blades_analytic - to help them suggest and assess potential signings. Behind the irksome look-at-me "personalities" at Posh, there's an interesting model. Automatically transfer-listin...

Re: Faal Mental Jackett - Pompey (H), 3:00pm, 18/01/2020

This season has been hopeless from the start getting thumped 5 and 6 by teams some of our fans have barely heard of and very very little hope at any point. I've had loads Eye of the beholder, innit At best we’ve been 12/13 behind. And when we were we had injuries and potentially further points to c...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

We don’t need to sell on the cheap now? So a million quid might get us talking? More. Seriously. You know how we're struggling because it's thought we can "only" pay players £2kpw? A million quid gets you ten players at that rate for one season. When we were first in embargo, under Parky/Ken just a...

*Cough* that's Dodoo isn't it? 23. Video isn't great. Nsiala I think it's between the sticks and then trying to get to the loose ball and second. Fair cop - confirmed, having watched it on telly now. Still not sure about Nsiala. Again, he's erratic - although I want to like him. Interesting back st...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Nixon linking Parky with a move for Brockbank. I'm sure they'd offer him loads more cash, but he also might not get a game. Whereas if he stayed here he'd be a fixture in what hopefully will be a promotion winning side next season. Parky's timed that well because poor old Harry had 10 minutes of he...

18pts from safety now, maybe more if Tranmere win their own games in hand. Despite getting away without further points punishment, the gap has widened (it was 15pts when Hill arrived).

Re: Faal Mental Jackett - Pompey (H), 3:00pm, 18/01/2020

Meanwhile - someone's been at the Liam Edwards voodoo doll again. Our contracted-until-2022 defender had treatment in the first half and didn't come back out after the oranges. On trundles Chris O'Grady, with Uncle Wherever Jason Lowe dropping into centre-back, CO'G up top with Dodoo and Politic on ...

But yes, it looks bad. Mind you, I did say this week that Matthews is erratic. I dare say he'll pull off a worldie in...

Not seen most the 1st half so can't comment, have we been decent?
I'm guessing that if you had, you'd have been clipping and tweeting the moment where their last-man defender brings Dodoo down just outside the box and gets a yellow.

Re: Trotting over the Yellowbellies to three points - Lincoln City (A) 14/01/20

I didn't escape my attention that the majority, if not all, were inswingers targeting the near post. I remember reading that such a corner is statistically the most likely to result in a goal (I think the theory goes that it offers two opportunities to score, either from a direct header or a flick-...
