And, yet again, it's a budget thing. Sure, be lovely to have three left backs on staff. Can't afford to do it, so you have to make do with what you've got.

I'm sure, but when one part of it is making a decision like extending Wallace's contract which is completely the opposite of what the other two bits are trying to achieve it's an issue.

It's been a theme all the way through that we have a DOF, and a DOF system, but only some of the way.

Every manager that's been here under it has been allowed to do their own thing, and it's often been to the detriment of the medium and long term aims and 'what we're supposed to be doing' because managers go with players they know and like (and, ahem, agents they know and like) and players they think will get them a result this week to help them stay employed and to hell with the long term. JFH was allowed to sign people like El Khayati, Holloway was about to be allowed to release Ryan Manning on a free transfer until he got desperate and picked him, McClaren got away with all sorts of sht (tearing up the summer plans, demanding loan signings to pad the team, ignoring Manning and BOS), Warburton like we say was allowed people like Ball, Wallace, Moses, and they stuck with him over Sndre Gray when Les wanted him sent back. Even now, Beale very keen to point out that JCS and Paal are his men, and the club know how that PRs so they've stuck something about the analytics team watching them anyway on the end of it.

I'd rather we went all in on that side of the business and even further away from 'what manager wants manager gets' but we sort of try and do all three so you end up with a squad made up of manager signings, analytics signings, and players from the Hall/Ramsey side of the business.

You're taking a big chance going through a 48 game season with one right back. As I've said all summer, the budget headroom isn't there, so we'll have to cover things like that with loans.

Where I am more annoyed with regards 'The Plant/Remit' in this part of the pitch is how we've spent the last 18 months basically letting Warburton have what he wanted, and what he wanted was Moses and Wallace, neither of whom were long term options. Three years on we've come into this summer with nobody in the squad capable of playing full back, that's a big failure.

Yeh it's better over time though. Last season it was exactly right about us, even when we were flying high it said we were playing at a level around 11th 12th which turned out to be bob on. If you look at it on individual match basis less so - and it's not just me saying that, if you go back and listen to the Andy Belk interview we did he says the same thing. It can throw up some perverse stuff on a match by match basis, like saying QPR were better against Sunderland than Middlesbrough for instance, or that we had the lowest xG in the league on the day we won 3-0 at Hull.

The xG says we were better on Saturday than we were against Middlesbrough which is obviously fcking bolox and shows why that measurement works over long periods of time and large sample sizes but not when you use it to look at individual games.

Well I was in row T-ish, I think. And then a short time later I was in row N, and about 30 seats to the right.

I obviously hope you’re right but it is tricky to play to your potential when half your team is back at home.

You've stuck to that line every since that game and it ignores the fact that if you're disallowing the goal for offside then you have to go back and award the penalty for the deliberate handball on the goal line from Adomah's shot which is how the ball got to Austin in the first place. That's on Stroud.

Good to go. Cut off date for announcing a rail strike for that date is August 19/20 I believe.
Booked down on the Friday because the costs for the Saturday morning journey when we looked made me laugh for a good ten minutes and were on par with a flight to fcking Brazil (probably sat next to Hamalainen).
