 Naz - to be fair right now the expected goals thing shows we've been playing like shit

 Won’t happen CW. Great reflexes but a chipstick. With 3 centre half’s usually in the starting 11, we have no choice but to set up so he doesn’t have to look to be 5 yards off his line. No point in exposing the weakest part of his game?

 Last season Joe McDonnell had the same problem and teams quickly worked out that if they crowd him then goals will come, he needs to learn to come out and dominate his box sooner rather than later

 CW, at youth football he wouldnt get crowded and also would be playing boys his own age that he can just shift. We need to help and protect him. Our defenders are to nice, if our keeper is being shifted then they need to make sure it doesnt happen.

 He looks good on the basics like shot stopping but doesn’t seem to have much idea when he is crowded, in league 1 you have to come out and punch the ball but he seems scared to leave his line, let’s hope that improves

 Think Trott looks very promising. Good shot stopper, and he'll have a lot of shots to stop over the season.

 If the ball comes into your area in the last seconds of game,surely you just clear it .basic schoolboy error.

 His save in the 1st half against Norwood was top draw.

 CW, Unfortunately he is going to be Naive, he is young. One of the reasons West Ham allowed him to come and get experience

 Getting boxed in is a sign of naive goalkeeping though

 MAD - I may have put on a couple of stone since my last game. Reminiscent of Neil Ruddock's less agile (much) younger brother.

Alan, yes probably should have headed it (though we wouldn't be saying that if his volley had connected), not saying he didn't fuck it up - but when you're aware of / marking a runner through your back line and there's a ball coming over the top it's easy to get caught between 2 decisions in that split second. Anyway, we lost. Hopefully he'll make the right decision next time.
 Wally hasn’t shut the door on a bit of wheeling n dealing by the sounds of it...

 Kt2 - that ball needed to be headed, first rule is get rid ASAP, that means not letting pass your head in hopes that you can get a boot on it. Pretty sure Trott got boxed in for the first goal cw.

 CW, I think it was a great corner and a brilliant header.

 The first goal was bad defending too, where the hell was Trott on that corner?

 Finally got round to watching the Ipswich highlights last night. Have to say people have been a bit harsh on McDonald for that final fuck up IMO. Played CB myself for many years and clearing a ball coming over your shoulder while picking up on a runner towards your own goal is extremely difficult. Especially after 95 minutes. Just a shame they buried it.

I'd have Wagstaff out for wordks. Be interesting to se Reilly, Hartigan and Words in aMF 3. Wonder if Words / Reilly could make a bit of space for Hartigan to play his best game.
 OMG - "expected goals" are making a comeback. Please no! I would have hoped that that term had well and truly left KM with Nil and his laptop. BTW, Notts County’s new owners seem to be as much into statistics as Nil - and they even look younger than him. [Link]

Good luck to those setting off for Sunderland today.
 Smalling and Jones make mistakes. Piquet and Ramos make mistakes. Maguire and Van Dijk make mistakes. Of course Charles and Robinson made mistakes but in IMO they are the best centre backs who have played for us (at their peak).

 Tudor - we have only been ahead on expected goals in a game once this season. Is that because we are getting into the box and not shooting (Folivi) or are we actually just fooling ourselves

 So today, Bury get an extension of time, Bolton have the weekend off and we sign Sunderland free agent Glenn Loovens

Happy Friday🍺🍺🍺
 The previous manager lacked goals and excitement. Wally needs to give the fans some or fall the same way.hope he realises before its too late.

 We should work on increasing our expected goals stats first, before we start all this "holding onto a lead" nonsense.

 None of our centre backs have been the finished article and all have made mistakes. Robbo and Darius made plenty of mistakes...
