I know we can get a little antsy about our style of play, especially when it's not working and we are just passing it around slowly.

But I'll tell you what, I'd rather watch that any day than just having the ball in orbit every second like these 2, it's horrendous football.

Was thinking the same thing myself Lostock but at the end of the day Wednesday scored far more goals in their 96 points than we did so for them it works. It’s not like we didn’t make plenty of chances to score more playing on the floor football so let’s hope IE sorts that out next year and we’ll have the best of both worlds?

Population of Barnsley, 247,000, fans at Wembley just over 20,000. Shocking.

We need to stop this now. Used to be a Leeds thing and everyone laughed. Now everyone is at it and as a club we are bad. 

Think I now want Barnsley to win solely because they have less fans 😂

I like our style of play, it’s the correct way to play… however with 15-20 minutes left in the second game after trying to pass through them for 160 minutes and failing miserably, a change was needed, we put the big lads up front and forgot to tell the players to go long…. That tactic is effective at any level, even the Dutch did it in the last World Cup after getting the runaround for 70 minutes.

I think it was a combination of factors, losing Bod and Jones, ran out of steam, Wembley win and euphoria took a lot out of the team, and Evatts refusal to change the style of play against Barnsley, he was schooled by Duff and a 1 dimensional Barnsley team. Im fucked of we aren’t a Wembley today. 🤬

Evolution under Evatt.  Not sure this Barnsley team could get much better than they are. I think there’s plenty for us to build and improve on. Some good summer recruitment and I’d feel confident we could surpass Barnsley next year.

Love your optimism mate (I was the same once) Hope you right.

Mix it up, try going long, play into channels and get it forward quicker, it was clear playing side to side in front of a deep lying Barnsley played right into there hands… it was a shit show from Evatt. 

Play it long lol, our strikers couldn't hold up a fucking nursery. Not built to play hoofball.

Yeah exactly, Evatt is playing the long game that's a more difficult route, not chucking money at it, playing a progressive and patient style and not just hoofing it.

However as pointed out, Sheff weds done it and got 96 points, Barnsley etc. But patience won't last too long if we don't get promoted relatively soonm

Barnsley are a shit house team he new what he was doing went in well late no intention of going for the ball . Not a red but if you play like they do you run the risk 

Certainly are. Hope we smash them next season if they stay down.
