Re: Jack Robinson

This is a fascinating article. Where is it from? I think it's important mention sources, or preferably give a link to the original article.

Re: Holloway interview after the game

I've never left a football match before the end. Ever. Don't understand it. (Nor do I understand people who head for the bar ten minutes before half-time, or come back to their seats ten minutes after the second half has started.)

Re: I wonder

There comes a point in many managers' careers when they start to make weird decisions: picking players who plainly don't deserve to be picked, playing people out of position, making inexplicable substitutions, making things more complicated than they need to be. I'm afraid to say that Ollie has rea...

Re: Tonight's line up

I am losing patience with Holloway. WHY DOESN'T HE PLAY COUSINS IN MIDFIELD? He's done the right thing by putting Wszolek at right wing-back but Ngbakoto instead of Luongo? He's a lightweight. We will be overrun in midfield.

Re: QPR v Aston Villa

Why does Holloway persist with Cousins at right wing-back? It's not his natural position. And his substitutions are mystifying. I don't know why Luongo was subbed - injured, presumably - but surely the sensible thing would have been to shift Cousins into midfield, his natural position, and bring Wsz...

Re: New Offish site now live

It looks nice and clean but I had to ask my 21-year-old son how to find the fixtures page. Not easy to navigate.

Gambling

It looks like the FA is doing the right thing, for once. This is from the FT: The Football Association, the governing body of English football, has pulled out of a sponsorship deal with Ladbrokes Coral worth up to £4m a year, following concerns about the gambling industry’s influence over the nation...

Re: Warnock's post-match comments

I thought we outplayed Cardiff; not by much, but we were better than them - and they resorted to hoofball.

Re: Berbatov ?

I love him as a player, but he is a stroller of the old school. I can't imagine that he would last more than five minutes under Holloway. He'd probably stop for a cigarette break during training.

Re: Piece of paper

I saw it too; really funny. I think Hall should have eaten it to prevent it from falling into enemy hands.

A very simple question

I keep seeing the same phrase coming up again and again on this messageboard - about Ramsey, JFH, and now Holloway: 'He doesn't know how to set up a team.' What does this mean? Is it about formation? Coaching? Preparation? Or is it just something that people say when they want to sound as though the...
