    Tonight's Play Off Game

    Post by Stockport Ram on Mon 16 May 2016, 10:17 pm

    The first half of tonight's game showed exactly what we have been lacking.

    Controlled passion.

    Brighton attacked with pace and swift movement of the ball, and Sheffield Wednesday defended for their lives.

    More importantly, they both put their heart and soul into everything that they did.

    I have two observations.

    Firstly, we have neither the heart nor soul of either of these teams.

    Secondly, we appear far too naive.

    Say what you like about Billy's 2007 version of the Rams, they knew how to win.....legally, or otherwise.


    The more I watch, the more I despise the cheating, feigning, "gamesmanship" which has become endemic in English football. We certainly do not have enough of it in our team - with the possible exception of Martin and Jamie Ward recently - and I despise it.

    Sometimes, we have to move with the times if we want to succeed.

    Or do we?

    Stockers. I thought I was a one man band. I despised it when Franny Lee did it way back when. I despise it to this day. It has no place on a field of sport if that sport wishes to be seen as a real sport. The only difference between a lot of football these days and WWE "wrestling" is that the wrestling is choreographed, footballers just cheat.

    Back end of this week I will be sending a letter to Infantino at FIFA explaining what is wrong with the game and that new Laws are not needed (except for the 10 yard ruling a la Rugby). All that is necessary is that refs consistently enforce the Laws we already have.



    Gary Rowett's black & white army! The only certainty is we're all barmy LOL roll
