    The Godlike Genius of Charlie Mulgrew

    "Mulgrew was definite 1st choice centre back, playing well and responsible for our only attacking threat with his set piece delivery before he got injured. Not sure how he suddenly transforms into a fringe player who was shit just because he left." Not according to them. But who knows, football fans have form for chatting shit. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    "How many assists did he provide? I must admit I was a bit disappointed with his output from set pieces considering his record apart from that one that hit the post canโ€™t remember him being particularly deadly." From same thread.

    The Godlike Genius of Charlie Mulgrew

    "Since Mulgrew signed stats for league games from transfermarkt.com:With Mulgrew in team12 gamesClean sheets 4Goals conceeded 15Wins: 3Draws: 3Loses: 6Win ratio: 25%Clean sheet ratio: 33%Conceed ratio: 1.25Without Mulgrew14 gamesClean sheets: 1Goals conceeded: 24Wins: 1Draws: 4Loses: 9Win ratio: 7%Clean sheet ratio: 7%Conceed ratio: 1.71So no loss in Mulgrew then as we only won more games, conceeded less and kept more clean sheets with him in the team..." From a Wigan messageboard. They're arguing over how big a loss he is to them. Didn't we have similar stats on here that showed the exact opposite for us?!

    Championship season 2019-20

    As of today we are the only team in the Championship with 0 goal difference: 27 played, 35 goals scored and conceded, 37 pts on the board, 5 pts off the playoffs. We really are the steady Eddie's of the league. Those sort of stats rang a bell so I had a look back. Pretty much exactly 6 years ago, 19th Jan 2014 (only 2 teams in league with 0 goal difference): 26 played, 32 goals scored and conceded, 37 pts on the board, 4 pts off the playoffs. The following year, 2nd Feb 2015 (the only team in league with 0 goal difference): 28 played, 38 scored and conceded, 39 pts on the board, 8 pts off playoffs. The next year, 18th Jan 2016 (3 teams with 0 goal difference): 26 played, 23 scored and conceded, 29 pts, miles off playoffs. Sidenote- we finished this season as one of two teams with 0 goal difference, 46 scored and conceded. Summary: Our time in the Championship the last decade, (barring our relegation season), we certainly have been consistant. Consistantly mediocre and mid table. We score goals, we concede goals, pretty much in perfect unison. But just a tweak at either end of the pitch could be the difference that pushes up towards the top 6. Over half a decade later, countless personnel and a few manager changes, I just don't see any signs of that progression being made. Yes, it's good to be stable and clear of the bottom of the table, but at some point the next step needs to be made to push us towards the top end. It's the only way to save the club. At the moment, I just get that groundhog day feeling.

    This post finishes off a thread page that has 6 posts from you pretty much reiterating "one opinion". I'm confused. Is that the opinion you want us to stop allowing?

    He named about 11 of them in one post recently in the TM thread. https://www.brfcs.com/mb/index.php?/forums/topic/34120-tony-mowbray-discussion/&page=162 And explained a fair bit on each one's credentials. He's probably getting bored of repeating it for the hard of hearing.

    That's the second time in 24hrs you have associated a man crying with both mental health and suicide. You appear to believe your views are progressive and modern, but I would suggest they are archaic and dated. If a man cries, it shouldn't mean there's something "wrong" with him. If a woman cries does that mean there's something wrong with her? Are we still living in the 1950's? Whilst you're lecturing everyone else on what's appropriate or not, might I suggest you maybe examine your own viewpoints when measured up against modern standards. In fact, mental health charity Mind did a whole campaign on this back in 2015: https://www.mind.org.uk/news-campaigns/news/mind-says-it-s-ok-to-cry/ Trying to eradicate the stigma of adults crying, as it is seen as a good release for anxiety issues. Someone like yourself jumping from tears to suicide in a heartbeat is probably the exact issue they were trying to overcome. Particularly among the Male population. So to Big Ben I say - let the tears flow bro, dust off, pick yourself up, and come back fighting harder than ever. That's all any of us can do.

    Hang on a second, I read their boards when it happened, and not only were a lot of their fans bemoaning him leaving the club, but they were complaining the price was too cheap aswell. They rated him pretty highly as a player. One for the future. So, have we ruined him? Or was he one of those that showed early flashes of promise but they were a false dawn?

    Well, 5 months and over half the season later Harry, where do you stand in regards to these comments? I'd say we're definately going backwards and as for progression to top 6 - well, we're miles off competing. So are you going to be true to your word and hop over to the dark side? C'mon, it's warm and cosy over here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/talksport.com/football/648917/have-liverpool-lucky-var-decisions-premier-league/amp/ Leicester seem to have slipped under the radar on that front. Number 2 in VAR decisions for with 5 going for them. Would they be in top 4 without it? Big club bias and all that. Poor old Wolves. Not a single decision going for them out of 6 before NY day. Must be painful that.

    Wow, that's all flying over my head. I get the gist of what your saying though. I don't think anyone is claiming a 100% efficiency. 2 other relevant points were made in the same chat I heard (can't remember which radio station). They said overall refereeing decision accuracy had gone up from 82% last season to about 93% this. 10% increase in correct decisions ain't to be sniffed at. And in terms of offsides they had asked the clubs themselves to decide for where to measure it from - I.e. point of impact, when ball leaves foot etc. Can't remember exactly which they picked, but referee made out they sat all the clubs down, said here are your options, pick one. And therefore the clubs can't bitch about it. That may relate more to your frame per second scenario. They might hav agreed that first frame that shows daylight between foot and ball is the one. And then it's the same even deal (or pot luck) for all.

    After 6 odd months of this farce I finally heard an explanation by a ref about this in last few days. The images we see with the lines on are not the images they see at Stockley Park. Something to do with them looking at in 3D and we're only seeing 2D. So, basically, it's pointless them showing us those shots with the coloured lines. Makes sense now to be honest. Why the hell someone didn't voice this earlier during all the mayhem is beyond me.
