    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Plymouth Argyle h

    I am listening Twirls, that's why I'm pointing out his mistakes that have NOTHING to do with his workload- eg 8 dropped uncontested catches, diving over/not stopping the goal on Saturday etc. What you're missing is that it's a keepers job to deal with it WHEN all else has failed, for WHATEVER...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Plymouth Argyle h

    Twirls, you can ignore the evidence that everyone esle can see as long as you like but I've outlined the deficiencies countless times and the fact that the fans thought he was their best player ony emphasises that he had more to do, more saves to make , and was therfore more noticeable and...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Plymouth Argyle h

    I think much of it is to do with style over substance. Soft hands ( keeping hold of the ball when it comes at you) has all but gone ot of the game in favour of blocking it and hoping the rest tidy up. Same with trying to catch the ball when making a save- I can't name one that does.The...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Plymouth Argyle h

    It's difficult to comprehend the policy on bringing keepers in as those two just don't look to be solutions, or look like they expect to play 1st team football. I said earlier that we should have been looking for a good 2nd from among the many bench warmers in the PL - look at Martinez, now at...

    Brewster

    Chronic mentioned his eyesight earlier and it does make you wonder. I've remarked on his hand/eye cooordination before realising that he wore contacts( as we saw in the last couple of weeks) so mabe there's a reason? Maybe he has a peripheral vision problem. I'm no expert but there's got to be...

    A tweet from Kevin Sharp ex Yorks batsmen and batting coach sent to him by Craig White , ex Yorks all rounder- "During a 2nd xi game @OakhamCricket in 2009 Root & Bairstow produced a magnificent partnership to chase down 400. Craig White said to me “I think we are seeing something very...

    Unlike VAR, it's recognition that the technology has a degree of uncertainty when predicting where the ball is going exactly so,as it's always been in cricket, the batsman gets the benefit of the doubt

    He's looked better than his double ton, playing a different game, on a different pitch, to the rest. I feel privileged to have seen Joe throughout his career to date, he's one hell of a player and, as I said to a mate when he started, he'll re-write the record books and he's now doing just...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Plymouth Argyle h

    As others are saying Twirls, it's Hobson's choice when picking him- the other 2 are worse and bringing him in is looking worse by the week- a major mistake. I've said before, being picked in goal for England is no big shakes, we're hardly overstocked with half decent England keepers, look at...

    Well Jonny idn't get ther but Joe,at 06.00 UK time, got his 19th ton for England, the 1st time he's got 100's in successive tests- and , at lunch, he's still there Just keep going Joe- well worth the early start.

    Only the last one with a bit of common sense- oh, and the one with the keeper comparison.

    Spot on Ray. As Bulmer says, I've had doubts from day one- his low, slow, making no ground attempt at the Villa looping header- and he's only confirmed what what I thought match by match. As you say , he dives for everything- the one today going 3 yards wide of his left hand post 2nd half-which...
