I still refuse to subscribe to Black Sky Matters. And while I appreciate that there are alternatives, I've not bothered. On occasions I've popped next door to watch with my neighbour but he's a Saints fan and hasn't invited me lately. I think he's concerned about being grassed up. And tbh, although I've missed out watching vital wins, my superstitious self is convinced the only reason for our surge is because I'm not watching.Whiskyman wrote: ↑Mon Feb 22, 2021 10:48 amI don't envy you listening to that last 30 minutes on the radio Jay. Nice to get a couple of breaks as well. For the life of me I couldn't see how anyone could have seen an offside in the build up to our second and if the rebound off Son had gone in instead of coming off the post it would have qualified as fluke of the season.
But, boy, do I wish our game management was better. It would make for a less stressful watching experience if only we held onto the ball instead of thrashing it upfield when all our players are back defending for their lives. Not sure bringing on Benrahma for Bowen was a good idea tbh. Bowen didn't have his best game, although his cross for the first goal was top drawer, but we lost his defensive discipline when Benrahma came on and, FFS, what was he thinking when he threw the ball at Cresswell while he was covered by two Spurs players. Benrahma shows some very good footwork at times but, imo, still needs to improve his decision making. The whole team put in a good shift but a special word for Diop, who a lot of people seem not to trust. Imo he did a good job alongside Dawson in dealing with the second half bombardment.
And listening on the radio has brought a feel of the 70's and 80's back for me. I've quite enjoyed it. Although I'll probably get Sky back next autumn once the farcical taking the knee dies a death.
Yesterday the weather was glorious in God's own country and I went for a 10k walk with my headphones on but must confess to turning off for the last 15 minutes as it was becoming too much.
