|Tweaks we need to become top 6?|
at 13:14 5 Sep 2019
We've discussed goals against and the defence, but notable (Stoke excepted) that our 2nd half performances are so much better than 1st.
Why is this - are Eze/Chair/Wells/Hugill better against tired defenders?
Do we need to be more adventurous 1st half?
Certainly Eze/Chair have seemed so much better 2nd half, not least because service they get seems to improve as game goes on.
Certainly something we need to work on, can't KEEP conceding 1st as we are doing.

Although it says that the tickets are on sale from today - they are not.
Thursday 10.00am - just so you don't waste your time like I just have!
|Referee! - Wigan|

OK for his first season in the Championship
1) Yellow for foul on Chair
2) No foul on Chair in the corner (Barbet did an identical challenge 2 mins previously - no foul)
3) Eze free kick - very close to a pen but without VAR you can't guess so always going to go for the safe option
1) Wigan number 2 should have had 2nd yellow for foul on Eze
2) Wigan number 5 should have had 2nd yellow for shouting and pointing at him not once, twice but three times!
3) Wigan 17 should have been booked long before he tried get Hall sent off
New law 'interest' (Only to be me prob)
When Manning went down injured, ref stopped play when Wigan had the ball. Normally that would be drop ball to Wigan, however because the ball was in pen area, it goes to GK. Lumley rather unsportingly then just played on!

Everyone outside doing better things obviously, so anyway here it is.
Not much faith in this as my footy bets have been teerible so far but I've gone for us -1 on the handicap - basically we have to win by two or more.
2-0 us - Chair (finally!) and Wells (on as sub)

Had a good look, didn't see one so here goes.
Prediction - as difficult as ever but will be disappointed if we don't get a point - think we will - I'll go for 1-1 Chair to score

I think, with SOME justification, most thought we got the rough end of refereeing decisions, looking at the season as a whole last year.
IMHO - we have had two go the other way so far this season already.
Last night's pen plus the one not given at Stoke for the Pugh handball, which looked a pen to me.
Long may it continue - sure it will swing back the other way though!

Time for a little punt - agin to alcoholism and drug taking to some I know but here we go
For the optimists
To beat Stoke 7/2
Top of the league 66/1
Top 6 7/1
Top half 17/10
For the pessimists
Stoke win 8/11
Bottom of the league 10/1
Bottom half 2/5
I am having a few quid on the optimists side!

Ahead of 1st proper game, with 7/8 new signings and a couple of interviews with the new man are we feeling more or less optimistic than we were before he was appointed?
For me - players and staff making all the right noises, but then that's the easy bit...……
Still going for 16th as it stands.
Fail to bring in a couple of forwards and I might revise that, but then again the 'right' signings might make me stupidly optimistic again!

|Few quick thoughts|
at 19:28 19 Apr 2019
Pen - was, thought Bright lucky to stay on the pitch and what the hell was the ref doing having a 5 min conflab with half the Blackburn team while they ignored the ball 30 yards behind them?
Booking GK 20 seconds from time - really?
6 mins was right - I called it - BUT only if you add on no time for time wasting - its obviously to orders as they all do that.
1st half - blowing up as we take a corner - not seen that too many times at ANY level.
Not his greatest game - but we still deserved to lose

Pithy title or what?
Don't think anyone in the mood for clever word play.
3-0 Millwall and the most miserable £50 I have ever won.
