    RoyMac5 reacted to AndyinLiverpool in False economy examples   
    In 1983, the Sunday Times recalled their expert from a European trip in order to cut costs (on Rupert Murdoch's orders) before the expert had had the chance to authenticate some documents they had been sent to inspect.
    The Sunday Times went on to pay for and publish extracts from those documents, the Hitler Diaries.

    My theory is buy cheap, buy twice applies to almost anything.

    RoyMac5 got a reaction from Bob The Badger in Carson or Roos   
    Pass to who? If it's the back four they just ten play it sideways.
    Plus it's nonsense that Carson can't use his feet. More importantly he's the better keeper and commands his area better. Perhaps Given could teach Carson to dribble, cos he won't teach Roos to be better than average.

    How is Roos' distribution any better than Carson's? I dont understand that argument at all. None of roos kicks were very good today. It's not very hard to pass it to tomori about 5 yards. And Carson glued to his line? I'd rather him be there and have a chance at saving it rather than Roos rushing out and having CHIP ME written on his forehead.

    Much prefer roos nowadays...quicker thinking,better distribution and just more lively...
    Carson is just getting older,his game was bound to start going off.

    I've been really disappointed with Lawrence for the majority of this season, but I don't see any huge merit in dropping him. We have too little depth.
    Bennett has done very little in any game he's started and Jozefzoon has, well, done very little.
     
    If Holmes is fit he'll be replacing the now injured Bryson, you'd imagine. So there isn't really anyone to put in for Lawrence unless you push Waghorn back out wide or play a youth player. May as well stick with him.

    Hope so. else he'll be playing draughts with Anya.

    'Best efforts' was really only one incident though.
    For the first 70 minutes he was probably our best player, the only one who consistently tried to do or did the right thing with the ball and the only one capable of moving up the field with the ball and not immediately losing it.

    RoyMac5 reacted to Srg in Carson or Roos   
    at this stage in their respective careers it's Roos.
    Carson has been phenomenal for us since his arrival, but he's absolutely glued to his line and he's had that many back problems he can't get down to anything anymore, add to that that his kicking is poor in general and Roos has to be the pick for this team. Roos is by no means perfect, and we could still upgrade but for now the decision Lampard has made is correct.

    Marriott, but it depends how we play.

    RoyMac5 reacted to Shipley Ram in Derby County vs QPR   
    It was not so much us getting sharper but them getting tired. Several times our forward/midfield dropped back to pick up the ball but weren't tracked, they could then turn or play a better ball rather than pass it back to a defender. We kept gifting them some great chances all though the game, which is worrying.

    I was out and have just followed the game reading all the posts...god knows what it was like live!

    Because there's 3 instances mentioned rather then one perhaps. Who knows, pointless debate.

    Errr the free header from the middle of the box, the ball across the six yard box that their striker was inches from, the shot/cross that Roos flapped at...

    His decision-making seems to get no better. Major flaw at his age imo. Not as good as JR for me.

    RoyMac5 got a reaction from Taribo in Christian Walton   
    How many games has he played? To prove he's consistent, that he can command his box, etc. Okay you've seen enough. I haven't. I didn't rate him pre-this short spell and although he's done well, that isn't enough for me to give him no.1 spot.

    How do you know we would have scored the penalty?
    Officiating hasn't been great but I still believe it evens itself out over a season. 
    Without going back through all of the games from the season  I can think of 2 occasions where Tomori should have been sent off but escaped with a yellow card, and from memory we took 4 points from them games.

    Think he's also a bit hacked off with the constant kicking he gets at this level.

    He's their Youth Team Coach... I'd imagine he's had a temporary promotion after Nathan Jones took some staff to Stoke.
