Quiet one tonight for me, I think I'm still rough from Bristol.

 

A few of the lads are still out and onto a winner....

 

I'm tempted to pay for them to stay tomorrow so they can try to complete their hat trick :D

Ha ha good work pal.

Ive not been bogdans biggest fan this year, but they were 2 brilliant saves which we could be looking back at in a few weeks.

 

Should of done better with the free kick though :)

 

Our wall for the free-kick was a bit of a fucking joke though.

I'm not sure he can make the people in the wall any taller can he?

 

Also, is it his decision whether those in the wall all jump, or just one or two do?

Given the wall was small, then his positioning was poor.

 

I like Bogdan, I still think he can become a very good keeper, however, he hasn't inspired me with as much confidence as Lonergan has this year.

 

He doesn't seem to organise or communicate to the defence as well as he should be doing.

Not sure I get that.

 

Shirley a goalkeeper positions himself based on where he's put his wall, not based on the height of his wall. There's no point in having a wall in the first place if you have to stand behind it.

 

Not sure who it was who didn't jump, but if he had've done like the two either side of him did then maybe we wouldn't be having this discussion.

 

... or maybe we can just congratulate Noone on managing to get it up and down and as close to being in the bottom corner as was possible. Any closer and it would've hit the post.

I thought you were insinuating the wall was small, but i also thought his positioning was poor, too far over towards the other post.

 

You know sometimes at a match, you have a moment, when you look at things, & say "this is in", & it is, had one of those moments when I saw his positioning tbf.

 

You're right though, cracking freekick........ Bastard that he is :angry2: , really wanted those 3 points :thumbsup:

i'm in the 'bogdan is nowhere near as good as jussi but we were fcuking spoiled for over 10 years' camp

 

he's still a good keeper, still young, still time to get better and i'm hopeful he can get close to jussis level

 

but, i'm shit scared every time we concede a free kick 20-25 yards out

 

the one at cardiff?

 

sometimes you have to say 'well done' and maybe this was one of those

No. not at all.

 

My point was you position a wall and, to a certain extent, you're simply hoping the free-kick taker isn't able to get it over that wall and under the bar.

 

Noone managed to do that with ease.

 

Mind you , you also hope your wall does its job and those in it are willing to take one in the mush, rather than "do a Nasri". You'll also get some jumping and some not. I guess we were unlucky that Noone opted to kick it over the head of our non-jumper.

 

Having said all that, I agree with Casino in that Bogdan scares me to death at free-kicks. Was it Dempsey last season who beat him from 30 yards at the Reebok and as soon as it left his boot you could see it was going in.

 

At least he makes an effort to get there though, rather than falling to his knees and watching it nestle into the net over his shoulder :)

Jussi was shit in his first couple of years here and I lost count of how many times he was beaten from outside the box, including loads of free kicks.

 

Give Boggers time. We've got to 6th with him in goal.

He also pulled off a simply breathtaking save low down in the second half didn't he?

 

It seems, with Bogdan, folk only ever seem to pick up on the negatives.

Bit late of a reply, but we didn't have Lee or Holden. we'd have been well clear with them two, or at least 1 point better off.

You might be right, but you could probably if 'n' and your way to winning the league if you put your mind to it.

Reminds me of the Ally MacLeod story (the one who thought Scotland would win the World Cup).

He was managing Ayr and had just got them into the top flight.

Looking at the new season's fixtures he said:

First match at home - that's 3 points. Then a relatively easy away - another 3. And on and on.

Sixth match at Ibrox - well that's another win. "But Ally, that's Rangers at their place!". Yes but they won't fancy it when we've won 5 straight.
