I said that when TF announced Pontus would play last WE ..... and then had to eat my words.
My missus is apparently the Bees expert in our bubble now
The last game I took mine to was when Conner Mac broke his leg. Her comment (not to the leg break) was why dont they just get the ball forward and try to score. About 30 seconds later Clayton scored. There told you so, she said. I've not brought her since.My wife is the expert in my house too. She says things like "why don't they score more" and "they shouldn't pass like that, they get paid enough money". Luckily, I have my own bubble when the game is on.

My wife's last game was Liverpool away. That was early '89. First was Fulham away a couple of years earlier (when Blissett got sent off for running a full 40 yards to lamp a totally unsuspecting Stannard). Her reaction to that was "why?" which I was unable to answer. Except to say that I found the whole thing very, very funny. Well, it was Christmas.
Last game I took to was Charlton v Brentford on Valentines Day. In itself that was fairly controversial....
I said to her to before the game about how much Harlee Dean had improved. Anyway, we got stuffed 3-0 and HD had a stinker (to be fair, so did everyone else). “See what you mean” she said at full time.
She’s never been back.
Probably should not have been playing. Looked as if he had a shin injury after being savaged in that last game. Difficult man to leave out now he is so important to the team.Probably not feeling right as he seemed to be playing well within himself and rarely got into the final third.
Hopefully a whole three days rest will do the trick.
Shows how subjective it is when watching football. I thought he shielded the ball really well first half and was one of our better players! Hey ho. Just happy it wasn't an injuryToo deep or too wide tonight. Needs to be involved in the middle. We do have a strange tactic for our CM's to pull wide, maybe with the idea for the wide men to cut in.
Wasnt working for him tonight.
He played fine but about 15 yards too close to our goal. I don’t think he was instructed to pkay behind Janelt so while he still demonstrated his quality it is possible that his injury just took his appetite to be further up away.Shows how subjective it is when watching football.

Well, we did today.In need of a rest, lack of energy & ideas at the moment. We need Nórgaard & Baptiste back ASAP so we can rotate in the middle. We cannot ever again have a midfield of Marcondes & Jensen together! Even if that means Dasilva playing with one leg
