Become a problem for us hasn’t it?

Not strictly talking red cards either - games in which we struggle (yes, most games I know) we end up just giving away frustrated fouls again and again which doesn’t help us one bit and only helps the opposition slow the game down.

All stems from not being well drilled enough to play ourselves back in the game and the natural frustration of not being able to lay a glove on the other team.

All a bit pathetic really.

Town trend data
at 17:45 7 Feb 2021

The excellent Experimental361 has updated his 'trend' data for the top 4 leagues over the past 3 seasons which shows whether a club is over or under achieving through the metrics of goals scored against expected goals scored and goals conceded against expected goals conceded.

I know you can overanalyse things you can see with your eyes, and things like xG aren't always the best measures of certain situations but the Town one here backs up what has been pretty obvious to everyone. Essentially, for this season and the last, we overachieved for the first part, then promptly slid down into underachieving. The same thing has happened again with the same manager twice.

It also shows just how awful we were in the relegation season, consistently failing to meet a pretty dismal expected goal difference bar.

I guess this sort of thing is missing from Evans' folder of 'facts' that means Lambert should stay.

Can only assume Crewe were playing woefully at the end on purpose
at 16:59 30 Jan 2021

Because they know we’re much less of a threat on their assault on the playoffs if Lambert stays.

Smart thinking from them but doesn’t help us much.

Lambert on dealing with injuries now he's binned off the fitness coach:
at 11:32 4 Dec 2020

"We've got a few lads mucking in".

Ffs this isn't a local Under 12s side where one of the parents brings some oranges at HT and another knows how to make a sling. This is important stuff, and constantly referencing the freak injuries at Liverpool doesn't excuse anything.

No-one important at the club has any pride in it, they just keep talking it down and act like we've come up from the National League and are punching well above our weight.

I appreciate this veers into 'over-analysing manager speak' territory but the problem is they genuinely seem to believe what they say and back it up with (in)actions.

If you nothing about the teams but were told one was in League 2 last year...
at 15:55 31 Oct 2020

...you wouldn't think it was Crewe.

Excellent control of the ball, lack of the right pass at the right time stopping them from breaking through more than they have. Should have scored the one Holy managed to fling a big paw to.

Getting sick and tired of Town getting the ball and immediately passing it backwards with barely a glance forwards. We look like we don't really know what to do and are making it very easy for Crewe to get into shape then go again when they inevitably are handed the ball back.

Mick Mills probably calling it right that going behind could give them a serious wound (hence why they're where they are rather than challenging at the top), but we don't look anywhere near making that happen.

Is Sears drunk?
at 19:49 27 Oct 2020

Playing like it. Passes off, touch too heavy if he manages to control the ball at all, shots weak and dragged into the ground.

Get Dobra on.
