Re: We are unique

"If I went to a different club with different skill sets, trust me I'd play a different way" SD must really like himself He could have brought in players with different skill sets here couldn't he ? Also, not the best comment for our players to read, given this could feel like a put down o...

Re: VAR Penalty 2nd Half?

The problem is that VAR is being decided by more refs They are clearly looking to protect their guys It shouldn't be "clear and obvious mistake" as that is again down to opinion (an error of judgement is simply that, and should be corrected) For me, VAR should be supervised by a former pla...

Re: Is 433 A Better System Right Now

No
Our midfield is weak and lacking pace when there are four players in there
Drop down to three and we will be completely overrun
All that system will give us is more "hoof" ball tactics
