Re: Can you score direct from a goalkick?

Perhaps the law changed with the 'ball not having to leave the area' nonsense?

I always assumed it was an indirect kick.

Re: Not imperative that we stay up

The comment from Pace has been taken out of context here. He spoke at length about his ambitions for the club and it was clear it’s important that we retain our PL status.

Re: Formation change needed

At times today there was a gap of 20-30 yards between Wood/Barnes and the nearest midfielder.
With the front two's current inability to control anything, playing like that for 60 minutes plus was criminal.
