    You don’t need to overanalyse anything about S8 to notice the drop in quality lol. The battle scenes were breathtaking but the writing was ass.

    Cardiff City v AFC Bournemouth

    Reminds me of a stat I saw on van dijk that surprised me; his stats for tackling or something along those line were fairly low. Purely because he reads the game so well that he’s never in a position to need to make a tackle. He just “gets to the ball”. I remember us playing Southampton and...

    That’s fine. For me GoT showed how important the writing is for tv shows and films. S7 & 8 had breathtaking visuals, fantastic acting as always...but awful writing. For me it betrayed the tone and intelligence of the previous plot lines and the books and became, without trying to be patronising...

    It’s pretty good, it’s more of a sentimental, lighthearted “feel good” comedy than you might expect. It’s a very easy watch. Game of Thrones is incredible for the first 4 seasons, great for the next 2 and then utterly shite for the last 2. When it was good there was nothing better though.

    Thoughts on today

    If I were you I would probably just take an unannounced break and quietly drop back in next time you get sick of this place. I’d agree that you got a bit too much grief, especially this season, but you’ll just get even more by leaving in such a “public way”. Up to you though. I think we’re the...

    Cardiff City v AFC Bournemouth

    Especially compared to JT and JW pulling out a load of BS “fantastic performance by the lads” speeches after scraping past bottom half teams or losing. Much rather a manager be looking for more; JT probably couldn’t have gotten any more out of them and he certainly couldn’t have gotten that...

    Guess this probably didn’t need it’s own thread lol, not much to discuss really :grinning:

    Offsides

    Not sure what exactly has changed within the defensive setup since the start of the season, but has anyone else noticed our offside traps have been near immaculate? We saw a few offside goals against early on and it feels like half the chances we concede turn out to be offsides. Small thing but...

    Cardiff City v AFC Bournemouth

    Really happy with that. Could have created slightly more clear chances but we were dominant and pretty much controlled the game. Felt like we had the players on the bench to go up a few gears if needed. Love it.

    Cardiff City v AFC Bournemouth

    This ref has been fantastic. Makes Stroud look even worse by comparison. This could have easily turned into bitty game but he’s let it flow, been on top of everything, both sides penalised fairly.

    AFC Bournemouth v Queens Park Rangers

    I thought the crowd was the best it’s been in a long while. I think our mics are pretty shite for whatever reason.

    AFC Bournemouth v Queens Park Rangers

    That's fair. I wouldn't either tbh, though it would be good to see how good JZ and JA are when not playing with each other at some point. I think both have suffered when Billing is missing too.

    AFC Bournemouth v Queens Park Rangers

    If we're bothering to chop and change, which I wouldn't, then maybe something like: -------------Travers------------- Smith---Cahill---Kelly---Zemura ------Lerma------Kilkenny------ Brooks------Christie------Rogers -------------Solanke------------- Subs: Nyland, Mepham, Stacey, Marcondes...

    Championship 21/22

    We know better than most that having the best squad on paper means f*ck all in this league. Fulham are human like every other team in this league. Let’s see if any of these lot can maintain it after 25 games. Don’t be surprised if Sheff Utd win 4 on the bounce and are suddenly in the top 4...

    Lewis Cook

    I agree that while Pearson is inarguably one of the best players in his role in league, he doesn’t really seem to fit our current system that well. Might be proven wrong though.
