Two spare tickets for Saturday
at 15:53 5 Jan 2022

I have two spare tickets for Saturday - only thing is one is an OAP’s ticket and one is a kid’s ticket.

Any takers? I live in London and am self-isolating until midnight tomorrow night so will only be able to give you them at the game rather than posting them. Cheers

Ashton
at 14:02 21 Dec 2021

Think he’s made a great decision on McKenna. And even if this one doesn’t work out, I think the profile of the appointment bodes really well for how we’re going to be run going forward.

But did anyone else laugh when they heard him say that McKenna matches his profile, and then described him as having ‘a very high level of intelligence’?

Brings to mind a David Brent quote: “Probably why we get on… similar.’

Interesting coincidence that we tried to use this formation on Wednesday, a few days after United did it. Apparently Rangnick has used it quite a lot during his career so presumably it came from him rather than any influence from McKenna.

Still, that’s the first and second time I’ve ever seen it in England, apart from on me and my uni housemate’s Fifa 11 save. It’s fair to say United did it much more effectively than we did.

I do wonder whether we’re fighting yesterday’s battles
at 12:03 24 Nov 2021

This 4231 with emphasis on switching the play doesn’t seem to break teams down the way it has done for PC in the past.

He himself has commented on the number of great coaches in League 1, and I do wonder whether their complexity has just taken him by surprise at times.

I do think he seems like a good figurehead for the footballing side of things, and I can imagine the players liking him, but that doesn’t seem to be enough any more.

Thing is, if we replaced him, would we make a forward-looking appointment? A young, innovative coach? Or would it be a big name from the managerial circuit who is largely similar to Cook? I suspect the latter, although that’s purely based on the fact that I think Ashton’s last appointment at BC was Nigel Pearson.

As it is, I think we’ll win on Saturday and forget about this poor form for a bit. Then start asking questions again when we hit another tough run of games.

Selections last night
at 11:07 15 Sep 2021

Why was Holy playing ahead of Hladky? Strange one given that Hladky was on the bench so presumably not injured - I hope there’s not more to that. Pigott will have felt unlucky not to have started as well, although Norwood obviously justified his selection.

Two of the best passes you’ll see all season. Fraser’s vision for the second one was particularly impressive - really hope his injury isn’t too serious.

Downes, Dozzell, Gibbs and Bishop all go in one summer for a total (!) of 3m I would have been devastated.

But in these circumstances it makes sense. The disappointing one is Gibbs - but we can’t really complain about the other three for various reasons. I think Bishop will have a good season for Lincoln but there can’t be much doubt that Chaplin and Fraser are an upgrade in the 10 role. Then the other two obviously wanted to go.

Strange times - but exciting too.

It’s usually under ‘next match’ but the option has disappeared for some reason.

So we should be getting at least another…

CM, LB, winger, CB

Then we might get another winger and maybe another CM if we wanted to upgrade Nolan? Or a RB to replace Donacian?

Are we going to play 442?
at 21:41 27 Jul 2021

Every game I’ve thought we were only doing it because we were short of the attacking midfielders and wingers to play 4231, but suddenly we’ve only got one pre-season game left and we haven’t played our preferred system yet. Unless we are?

Wembley advice
at 08:54 28 Jun 2021

If you've been to any of the England games so far, how does the Covid test thing work? Are they just handing them out outside? Or do I need to go and get one from somewhere? On the Uefa website it says they're free so I presume they just hand them out but it's not super clear.

Also, how does drinking beer work when you have to wear a mask everywhere except in your seat, and you're not allowed to drink in view of the pitch?

Thanks!

I honestly think we're making the same mistake again
at 10:07 13 May 2021

We're giving the manager so much power that he could set us back five years - much like Hurst did.

A lot's been made of the new structure but where's a Director of Football who has the power to oversee recruitment?

PC's record so far in his career is obviously brilliant, but he's never been responsible for this kind of overhaul before. Not many managers have.

It goes without saying that I hope this works, but it's a huge risk. And yet again we're staking it all on one manager's opinion rather than making sure every decision is part of a long term vision.
