There’s very little news coming out today; certainly nothing of interest anyway.
The most copied story I’ve seen is Paul Lambert’s quote that the break will be good for us.
As above, I say what a load of rubbish.
I’ve never subscribed to the view that says a bunch of lads at the peak of fitness can’t manage at most two games in a week, especially with the way that they’re conditioned these days.
How many games have Bradford played this season, for example?
I’ll bet it’s more than us, but we all know what happened when it mattered.
I’d even go so far as to say footballers at the top levels these days are treated like a load of pouffes and they need less of the mental rubbish and more of playing the game.
When we last won the league, we used 14 players all season. Yes, I know, that was when we still had whippets and raced pigeons, but even then, 14 was probably less than the average at the time. So surely that proves that you don’t need all this squad rotation stuff?
I’m now off to go and watch a CL game that I really don’t care about in the slightest, but I thought I’d stick this one up for a bit of debate beforehand.
And yes, before you start slating me for being too old fashioned, it is slightly tongue-in-cheek.
I do think that now we’ve actually won a bloody game, the last thing we want is a break, imo.
