    Rothwell for Smallwood...
  3. Just left the ground...utter shambles. Think Mowbray got the team selection totally wrong. Not sure why anyone would think Palmer up front was a good idea. Armstrong up front at least makes us play it quickly to feet, but all Preston had to do was press forward and we lumped it up to Palmer who couldn’t win headers or hold it up so it kept coming back. Graham made an impact as soon as he came on, showed the rest of the attackers up and looked to be making a difference until 3-1 and our disallowed goal and then heads dropped. Shocking performance all round. Hopefully for midweek Tony decides to not try and over complicate the starting 11 tactically as clearly the players aren’t up to playing a false 9/wide forward as a striker.
  4. I guess Armstrong and we’re aiming to hit them on the break maybe?
  5. #Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Williams, Reed, Smallwood, Bennett, Dack, Palmer, Armstrong. Subs: Leutwiler, Rodwell, Rothwell, Graham, Bell, Brereton, Conway.

    Speaking Behind Hands

    Think it started in La Liga a season or two ago and then spread to other leagues? Vaguely remember Barca and Madrid players doing it as the tv cameras always zoomed in on then during breaks in play and it was supposedly to stop people picking up set piece and tactical information that could be used against them in real time...then it just evolved into whenever they were talking to officials etc as well so presumably they don’t get in trouble for abusive language/showing themselves to be complaining all the time/giving away tactical information 🤷‍♂️

    Attendances

    Quite like our official reply in fairness...

    Attendances

    I think most people would agree with Stuart and others who are on the side of the argument that says a matchday increase in ticket prices definitely puts off walks ons as coupled with other factors such as family/work schedule you’re less likely to go out of your way to attend if you feel the club is unnecessarily charging more because you can’t/don’t know if you can attend for whatever reason until the day of the game itself. It’s like with train companies increasing ticket prices on the day compared to advance fares which in effect penalises people that have fluid schedules/circumstances in day-to-day life and puts them off travelling by train and ends up alienating customers meaning the train companies don’t make as much money in the long term compared to a few extra higher fares in the short term and leaves people dissatisfied with the train company as an organisation. The only vague ideas of ticket sales comes in the form of articles/data like the one below from both individual clubs and the EFL and other instances of club/league officials replying to fan questions at forum meetings etc. https://www.efl.com/news/2018/may/sky-bet-championship-attendances-grow-for-the-second-successive-season/ Obviously articles like this will only paint rosy pictures whilst marginalising any negative instances of ticket sales/attendances as they are trying to promote brand awareness/sell their product. Following that logic, clubs and the league aren’t actively going to put out statistics that show how pricing structures they put in place to make more money in areas wherever they can without being called out on it by the majority of the fan/consumer base negatively affect attendances etc. as they’d be shooting themselves in the foot. Until the fans forum asks the club to supply the data (which I imagine they’ll do begrudgingly and take as much time as they can over) you’ll have to rely on the opinions of other fans (both on here and in the real world) that in my experience has always pointed to a matchday increase putting people off.
