'Despite their positive league form, the Tractor Boys have the worst passing accuracy in the Championship (62.5).'
I find this curious when you consider that we tend to have the majority of posession in games, and the quote acknowledges our good form - top six with the worst passing accuracy!
It can be explained, in part anyway, by our more ambitious passing strategy (hoof ball, if you want to dismiss it as that) where most passes are intended to have a significant impact on the game and are not keeping possession (which does not appear to work for teams playing against us) or 'patient build up' passes.
So, interesting as statistics are, we all know that there is only one statistic that counts. However I think this passing statistic actually supports MM's claim that he doesn't need any new squad members because if we get just a bit better understanding, and maybe a bit more drilling, of the current squad we do have a team that can win promotion.

I do the meat free Monday so it is Haggis with tatties tonight (and peas in place of neeps, I'm afraid). Here is Rabbie's footnote from 'Epitaph On A Noisy Polemic' in case there is anything unsaid on the Steve Evans comments - 'a fluent controversialist on matters beyond his understanding'.
If we overcome Pompey tomorrow and were drawn away to Nodge in the next round would you prefer us to put the first team out at the carrot patch, on the assumption that Delia's darlings would field their second string with relegation haunting them, to go for a convincing win and leave the chase for a play-off place to sort itself out.
I know Mick would be realistic and play most of the cup side he has used so far but what would you like to see? Me, I'd play Bart and ten attackers.
