I quite liked it as well as it gave coaches more chance to influence the game. The 5 subs but only 3 sub events worked quite well i thought.

I guess i just liked it because it increased his options for plans B, C and maybe even D.



Not that such things are conceivable for the jammy get in charge.

I liked it in the end as it pretty much worked for us but given our advantage is based around being fitter than everyone else I wasn't expecting to be a fan after managers had taken some time figure out the tactical advantages. When we played Luton much was made about them making 7 changes and seemingly prioritising other games but by the end of the game it's pretty clear their plan hinged on staying in the game and having their better players fresh for the 2nd half.

At premier league level with bigger squads, if our squad/style proves as effective as Sheff Utd, the idea that other middling sides could replace 3 of the back 4 after an hour completely nullifies a plan to wear a team down and score late.

Complete disgrace that Lampard is even being mentioned alongside Klopp & Wilder.

Bang average job done at both Derby & Chelskum with both clubs pouring the kind of playing resources down his thick throat that nearly every other manager could only dream of.

If it were anyone else, the ridiculously biased London fuck fest media would calling for his head.

I hope he and Solskjaer stay in the jobs for many a year

Smith at Villa for me should be ahead of Lampard. The guy is a miracle worker keeping that shower up. They were fucking dreadful.

I'd it not Smith's fault they were fucking dreadful, given what he spent on players :scratch: .

Yeah, Nuno Espiroto Santo or Sean Dyche would be my picks to replace Lampard. Or maybe even Ralph Hasenhuttl. Don't know enough about them to say which did better.

Aye, saying they were dreadful but praising the coach is rather odd.

Also a wind up but the lack of a smilie probably lost a bit in translation

I see that the Fulham owner is quoted as saying that Fulham will not make drastic changes to their squad. I assume the owner is positioning his club as the next yo-yo team and having spent £100m previously and then been relegated, he's possibly decided to take the TV money for one year and then parachute payments. Good news for us but a bit unfair on the clubs in the Championship if Fulham, West Brom and Norwich are all determined to yo-yo between the EFL and the EPL. Better to get rid of parachute payments entirely (unless we receive them)

It will be one of the teams with a delayed start to the season so we have to wait longer.

No sign of JKA in the training shots I’ve seen. Wonder which lawyer’s in tray is occupied with that one at the minute.
