Not good at all from him. Seems this happened initially when on loan with us. I wonder if Vale knew about it. Wouldn’t have him back here now to be honest as just think we have better options and he’d be fourth choice at best.
It's a combination of things, I always feel like 'expected goals' is a poor choice of name because it plays into the idea where people will look at the stats and say they deserved to win. It says that if football was just about playing to create a good chances on goal but all else was equal you'd be top. If there was no variation in the ability of shot-takers or shot-stoppers, if there was no luck, no pyschological stuff or any of that then you'd be top. It's becoming popular with stattos because for the most part football is about creating quality chances and limiting the opposition, but the manager can't take the shot, that's on who it falls to and also the other stuff. It's not saying that Stockport deserve to be top but it suggests they're doing 90% of the game right.
We do get a small number of Rangers fans visit Brunton Park when they're not playing.
Regarding the paddock situation. The most logical solution would have been to stick a copper and a couple of stewards in the area.
Any excuse for the club to fuck over the fans (not even been made to do it by the FA). Just another in a long line of events. That area is directly below the directors box, they've probably been dying for an excuse to remove fans away from them and now they've got their wish.
I think the proximity of the dugouts to the paddock is one of the great features of Brunton Park and is fairly unique. It adds an extra element for the away team to handle. If anything we probably go a bit too easy on the opposition.
Hadn’t considered that but there could be something in that. They’ve had it easy since bringing Simpson back but maybe they want the fans away from them for when they flog half the squad in January.
Thanks, I'm still going to take it as a positive since most of the past twenty years it's been the other way around.It's not saying that Stockport deserve to be top but it suggests they're doing 90% of the game right.
Clearly fucking up the other 10% good and proper.
Why do you get compensation for Wollacott being at the World Cup?Nice windfall coming our way. With Jonny Williams and our ex keeper Wollacott both going to the WC, we’ll get c£325,000 in compensation.
That’s based on both players being away from their clubs for 30 days.
Better hope Braverman is sacked soon then...
The good thing for our friends down the A180 is they count Non attending Season Ticket holders, so they won't have that to worry about.
Missed this the other day but we’ve made it to the final four in the European ’More Than Football’ community award, alongside Newcastle, FC Twente and Bilbao.
Apparently we’re now invited to Budapest to present to European clubs delegates who will decide the winner. Our tackling loneliness project in lockdown is the reason we’ve been nominated.
An excellent achievement and exactly what clubs at our level quite often don’t get praise for, because I’m sure most other clubs in this league have other community projects doing good work (just not as good as ours obviously!!)
This week, the European Football for Development Network (EFDN) is proud to present the four clubs and their respective projects which have been selected for the shortlist of the More than Football Award 2022.www.ntfc.co.uk
