We feature, but given how much we play from the back we were the beneficiaries rather than the daft looking mugs on these clips

I think we all accepted that with the way we play we were always likely to concede a few but, IIRC we have given a few chances up, but I can't remember gifting any goals direct from our 'dicking about at the back' © @Tom Hark Preston Park ???
True, I think … under RDZ at least … however, away at Newcastle in that dreadful first half we nearly (and should have) conceded directly as a result of having enormous balls on at least three occasions…

Only a matter of time til dicking around at the back goes horribly wrong for the Albion. Hopefully it'll least matter when it inevitably happens. And when it inevitably does, NSC will be AWASH with Clevor Trever after-timers who always knew it was an accident waiting to happen :lolol:
……...who will completely forget how many goals/chances we’ve created from such fannying about.

It WILL go wrong. Actually amazed we haven’t conced several as a result already

The first opposition team smart enough to put any kind of meaningful pressure on Lewis Dunk while he's allowed to walk the ball around with all the pace of Douglas Bader will probably reap an immediate benefit. Just saying, like :lol:

Goes against everything I was taught playing football, and all the games be watched over the years. Get it up the field, clear your lines, just boot it, stop pissing about at the back!

A lot of the time your riding the arse clutch and every sinew is being stretched but it’s a beautiful thing when we do it, and do it right.

Not forgetting the classic "never pass the ball across your own penalty area"

A memorable time that we arsed it up was in injury time when 1 up against Palace. Thankfully, they arsed up the chance we offered up. I'm not a football expert by any means, but I do feel that when defending a narrow lead in the dying seconds a firm hoof in the direction of the touchline somewhere in the opposition half is reasonable game management.

'When playing out from the back goes wrong' it's very rare and we often recover the position.

When it goes right, it's stunning.

If you don’t want playing out from the back disasters then you can’t have playing out from the back goals and wins. That means you can’t have 6th place under RDZ. In fact you can’t have RDZ at all, You can have Sam Allardyce though, so there’s always an up side I suppose. Personally I love playing out from the back risk taking and I accept the rough with the smooth.

Whatever the tactics you are going to concede goals.

Tactically and strategically last season we were very attacking and took risks, however only 4 teams had a better GD than us at the end of the season, only 3 teams scored more goals.

Arsenal in particular were completely destroyed by our ability to play in our 3rd comfortably under huge pressure. Long may it continue.

I completely disagree. That’s what Dunk wants and it’s why teams are learning not to press. That’s the real risk to our system.
