New phone being delivered today between the needlessly specific times of 11:42 and 12:42.....
Still not here so I phone them and it has been delivered to my office and signed for by a Mr Baker. Who Mr Baker is, and where he is hiding in the office when I have been the only person here all day I do not know.
Now a query raised against it, will I ever get my new phone?!
"Varney is a former Leeds player and will have been desperate to do well against his old club, particularly with their fans giving him a hard time, but McCarthy says that didn’t come into his thinking when selecting his team: “Not at all and I wouldn’t take anybody being in my ear.
“I’m slightly, no I’m very disappointed and offended that you might even think I’d be influenced by a player in my earhole to play. They’ll play if they warrant playing and I thought he did.”"
I can't find the quotes but hasn't he previously said he likes to give players a start against an old team as they are more up for it? Sounds like he was rattled and lashing out at journo's last night
Defence is supposedly solid - but we now let in at least one soft goal a game. 1 clean sheet in the last 10 games, in that drab Wigan game.
Midfield is totally anonymous
Attack - Murphy doesn't look close to being over the broken nose, 3 well below standard games in a row, Luke Varney looks like he is going to add nothing.
We need to make 3 or 4 changes to personnel, style and system as Mick has done a couple of times in his reign, in the hope it kick starts a winning run, otherwise we won't make the top 6.
On another note, and everyone on here will know I am a huge fan of youth players here in the system - but how on earth is Kundai Benyu getting on the bench ahead of Cameron Stewart yesterday. There is clearly a huge issue with Stewart.
