I see you've gone down the route of typing 'hoofball' in every post. Mud sticks I suppose but it's real lowest common denominator stuff.

When the hoofball stops, I promise I'll stop typing it.

Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

And what stellar name would you have got in to turn around a potential relegation scrap to a fight for the top 4?

Considering weve chucked 10m payoffs apiece at our last two failures,has anyone given a moments thought that SA could be fired in the summer should a viable candidate/target come available.Ruthless business decision i know,but dont think many tears would be shed by the fanbase.

There's a difference between making defensive clearances as a part of defending, and using long balls as a primary way to attack. If you want to criticise the team for being defensive (and therefore having to make more clearances) then I've no issue with that, and I'd like us to attack more as well but if you think this is long ball football a la Wimbledon c.1988 then you're wrong.

It would only cost us 6 million if we did this time.

If someone who could make a big difference came in, then I'd be all for it. But to sack him and simply replace with someone else who would largely do the same, no point.

90% of our attacks start with a Pickford long ball up the pitch.

Granted it's been that way for most of the season, but we've regressed offensively under allardyce and there's been no desire to get the ball on the deck and play.

I don't actually have a problem with being direct and playing long. My issue is having no one within 30 yards of the striker because we defend so deep.

I'm also confused why our striker is always left so isolated.

90% is a big exaggeration though. And anyway a keeper kicking to a centre forward also does not constitute hoofball - it's either a necessary clearance under pressure or a goal kick. And I agree that playing these pieces short to likes of Williams and Jagielka would be a bad idea.

The young manager that plays so-called 'attractive' football at lower-mid table clubs always get brought up yet how often do they work out for longer than 18 months max before getting sacked?

Current flavour of the month is seemingly Silva.

Off the top of my head in the last few years we've had:
Martinez
Laudrup
Monk
AVB
Billic

I'm sure there's many more if I could be arsed to look.

I feel sorry for the lad who's spent a lot of his Christmas break being a WUM on an Internet forum.

Really sad.
