Rotherhan *are* a tougher opponent
at 10:27 21 Feb 2024

than their League position might suggest. Especially against the better sides.

They've drawn three of their games against the top six, won two and drawn two against teams in 7th to 12th place. Plus giving others significant trouble before eventually losing.

As others have said, the physicality and the press are effective against teams wanting to play it out from the back in the current style.

Not an unblemished record in power, but will always remember the rescue of "los 33" trapped miners in 2010.

Why do people
at 10:48 20 Jan 2024

want to put anybody and everybody but Jackson up top Monday*?

A trained and designated striker. Who scored in the last game. Who has the energy and determination for the role.

Why shoehorn somebody else in (especially a slightly out-of-form, finding-it-hard-to-hit-the-target Broadhead), when Jackson is available?


* Edit - thanks Sitters.

The free kick from Davis was so perfectly placed, Conor had both feet on the ground when he headed the ball. Took two steps but didn't even need to jump.

Turning schools from places where children learn stuff to exam passing machines for the benefit of stats and league tables has been one of the greatest evils of recent decades. Not to mention the damage to teachers' morale.

FA Cup replays
at 19:24 8 Jan 2024

I was feeling that there were a lot more draws - and therefore replays to come - in the third round of the FA Cup than normal.

But I was completely wrong. There are eight this season, which is the most common number over the preceding decade* occurring three times. The fewest was four (2018-19, rather an outlier) and the most ten (2015-16).



* For two years in that period (2020-21 & 2021-22), the 3rd round went to extra time rather than replays, due to Covid. I've counted them the same, i.e. a draw after 90 minutes.

One thing I felt about last night
at 09:40 30 Dec 2023

If QPR didn't have Asmir Begovic in goal, we'd have won that. He is a good quality 'keeper and made some excellent saves - diverting Ladapo's shot with his leg, tipping Hutchinson's one over the bar. Plus claiming loose balls you see a lot of goalies at this level punching or missing altogether.

We can't entirely concentrate on the Ipswich side of the equation.

I also think (based on both games) that Sinclair Armstrong could be extremely effective in a better team.

(Two ... two things I felt about last night ...)
