Watching MOTD this morning, if anybody but Shearer is in the studio, that edit is very different. I agree with the penalty shout though, I'd have been very unhappy if that had been ours.

Can someone pass this onto Bielsa.

You’re God. But God created Philip Scofield so proves he doesn’t get it right all the time.

To do list
1. Sell Rodrigo to a Spanish club. It’s what he wants. Free up some ££
2. Sell/ loan out Roberts. He’s just not good enough. Free up some ££
3. Play Gelhardt ( in the striker role!!) even when Bamford is fit
4. If you think Gelhardt isn’t ready, then buy a striker. Proper striker. Play the striker in the striker position. Set tactics to play in favour of having a striker on the pitch.
5. Bamford isn’t good enough for a mid table premier league team. He can be a back up striker, if he is ever fit again.

I am by available for further advice.

1. Agree
2. Agree
3. Not for me, in our system. 1 Striker.
4. Agree, but, we did play those tactics yesterday, without the striker :D
5. Disagree

This. I distinctly remember Jackie gliding past Trippier countless times in the first half.

Separate point but one that annoys me is that James also needs to watch some videos of us last year and in the championship and see how good pulling the ball back can be.

True in regards to Dan's passing, but he played a peach of a pass in the box in the second half and ironically coming back to your first point, nobody was there to tap it in.

Need a proper striker. Seems Tommy was right, Bamford could be out for the rest of the season. (angry face).

Im not slating James really, I like him a lot just sometimes he needs to look more.


I like him. It just doesn't work for him up front against 7ft defenders.

I'm in agreement Phil, but there's no point in pressing (James & Tyler), when you score fk all goals. Rodrigo is a striker (I think) the other 2 aren't.
Or maybe drop Rodrigo & put Jackie up front who can actually score & James on the wing. He's said in the past that Jackie can play up front, why not try it.

I'm not convinced Harrison is any more suited to it in truth. At this stage the answer should be simple: Play Gelhardt there.

I agree we should be using Rodrigo as a striker (or not at all) and not as a #10. Our #10 role under Bielsa has always been creative midfielder rather than 2nd striker, even if we've often played a striker there.

Hopefully we get this lad from Salzburg and then Bielsa feels obligated to play him in the way he seemingly feels obligated to play Rodrigo.


Exactly. We've needed that Pablo, Saiz replacement for a while. That's why I'll be excited if we pull this off, but I'm expecting to be disappointed.

As for Gerthardt. Yep. Play him. Or buy a back up for Bamford. Sick of it. Those chances in the first half were ridiculous. Going by the Chelsea goal, he'd have been in that space. :(

What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! how infinite in faculties! in form and moving, how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension, how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals!

Spoiler alert - it's OK, Hamlet cheers up after watching a re-run of the victory at West Ham and after a brief reflection that the Newcastle games was merely an "As flies to wanton boys" moment, he looks forward to Gelhardt starting as a striker against Villa.

Having reflected on the Tyler Roberts situation, I've concluded that just as some teachers continually pick the village idiot as Milk Monitor, in order to boost his self-esteem, Bielsa will continue to select Tyler until the fans show him more love. As such we (quickly) need a Tyler song/chant. Something rousing that can be sung with passion and pride. Based on the idea suggested the other week of a song based on that terrible dirge, Ilkley Moor, how about:
We all think Tyler's really good, really good
First name on the sheet he really should
Be
He's more prolific than Chris Wood, than Chris Wood
Or would be if he knew where the fucking goal was or stopped giving the ball away to set up opposition attacks resulting in a goal
Alledgedly

Of course there is a danger if we show Tyler too much love that Bielsa might think "My work here is done" but perhaps I'm over-thinking the problem
