I'd rather see us in the top 6 with 25% than where we are now with 53%.

We would be comfortably mid table with Joe Allen and Brendan Rodgers

This side is being reassembled because according to the owners our senior players were on too much money and the youth was the future ( then aughingly trying to sell James) we have to stop wanting quick fixes and trust in these measures ...
Which means trusting the club's policy for this season.

Moving away from possession based game is what led to our demise ultimately.

Without possession you can't score goals.

Our demise started under the man who brought the most aesthetic passing style we had seen our team play in the Premier League.

Monk played a short term game and utterly appalling football which in the short term worked, but like every other team playing that kind of football ultimately got found out. We'll never know whether sacking Laudrup was the correct decision, but the decision to replace him with Monk was a shit one.

Laudrup also took us into Europe. I note you omitted that. Ya tit.

I think it was against Sunderland home about five years ago where Vorm had more completed passes during the game than the whole of the Sunderland team put together.

May I respectfully ask you to lighten up FFS, we won didn't we.
Possession is like this if you have the ball more than the opposition you make them work harder tire them out. Yes you need to do something whilst in possession, but there's the thing the more we have it the better we become, whilst we have the ball.
Perhaps you are suggesting we give the ball to the opponent's, and see what happens.
Anyways, enjoy the win👍

If Brendan looked at this thread he’d be shaking his head and wondering why we’ve gone from a fan base that understands this to a bunch of idiots. Possession with penetration. Nothing’s changed since his day. If you control the game it gives you a better chance to win it IF you make and take chances. It’s not the only way to win a game, but it’s a damn sight better to watch than Pulis ball.

Gaz, there are few posters on this forum you're wasting your time lecturing to regarding Garry Monk's tenure as manager than me.

Our 'demise' started under Laudrup however. He and Bayram are the ones who pushed Huw over the edge and he was never the same again.

Not if given context.

More possession on average gives a team a much better chance of winning.

“Pushed him over the edge”. Is this the same Huw who recently said he was against Laudrup’s sacking?

Gar come on mate I’m not knocking it but the majority of it is just keeper to full back to centre half.

Possession means f*ck all if you can't penetrate, and we can't, but hey! it's good to be the top of the possession league, will we get anything for that ?

As has already been said, possession is great if you do something with it.

Side to side and back to the keeper is boring

There is more than one way to play possession football. We were a vastly different team under Sousa to under Rodgers to under Laudrup. Ostensibly we played "passing" football, but the style was very different.

For me there's a little too much of the "keeper to defender" stuff that Darran singled out. We're a too slow moving the ball at times. Players look a bit flat footed and too many passes go behind the man. More Clement than Martinez.

But we are a work in progress after many changes in personnel.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Darran is correct.. we're nowhere near Martinez, Sousa and Rodgers Championship teams.. miles off.. passing between the two centre Half's and fullbacks plus Grimes obviously skewers the stats to make us look good.

We're just not good enough imo
