  1. That someone not able to nominate him has tried does not equal that he has not been nominated. Of course, him bragging about it is standard, and him not knowing geography is .. unsurprising, it is common knowledge he has been nominated (a couple of Norwegian MPs, for instance, nominated him last year. Yes, they are both terrible legislators). He may think he'll get the prize if nominated. That just means he doesn't know the process. But his ignorance on ... everything ... is well documented.

    First Quarter 2019 Reading

    Finished Factfulness. Important book, I'd say, for showing a big picture. Not the book for detailed study, but an important broad perspective. Now, over to Secondhand Time. The Last of the Soviets by Svetlana Alexievich

    Playing Verthongen was clearly a mistake.

    Always great to get confirmation of our footballing knowledge like that.

    First Quarter 2019 Reading

    My posting in these threads is so erratic I'm actually embarrased, but hey - new year! Just finished The Wife's Tale by Aida Edemariam (a biography of her grandmother). Currently reading Factfulness by Hans Rosling.

    US Politics: The Accountability Problem

    It certainly is interesting, and worth continuing researching. If that technology could be delivered at industrial scale, it would help combat climate change. My reaction was summed up in the article: Hmmm, I hope this works

    US Politics: The Accountability Problem

    I really don't know too much about CCS, so I'm probably behind the curve here. And I completely agree it should be part of the solution. I seem to remember, last time i checked, that the technology isn't viable for large scale CCS, though. Is that still the case?

    I will take this moment to express my sincere joy we're not employing him any longer. I'd rather have Martinez back.

    My random thoughts on the matter are: - It's early. He's trying to get us to play differently than we used to - generally that takes time. - We got sort of a managerial bounce at the start of the season, it has evaporated. I hope, though, that this is a bit like Guardiola/Klopp in their first seasons - getting an immideate bounce followed by a slightly tougher time, before the new system sets. - He has so far only had one (proper) transfer window to work with. So far, a few players are cleared out, but more culls will probably come. - Mostly, the players look better than last year. But, then again, last year we employed Sam Allardyce. - I am a bit worried about the set pieces. Shouldn't be so hard to fix, and it's very clearly a problem.

    I certainly hope so. That feature of our games start reminding me of Martinez - in his case, the mindless moving of the ball slowly back and forth.

    Our defensive organization isn't all that bad in general (though I wish we could get another central defender with a bit more pace - Keane is really a liability when we play a high line), but his record at set pieces is horrendous. Generally, I think zonal marking can work fine. Norwegians tend to remember our international team in the 90's, which was very well organized defensively - in zones. What you do need, however, is defenders attacking the ball, being aggressive, claiming their zone. We don't do that, and as a result, we see goals like Laporte's yesterday (he should have had two), or Raul Jimenez' last game. Entirely down to poor agressiveness (or, if you don't like zonal marking, poor marking).

    Letting in a goal in overtime in the first half. Letting in another in overtime in the second. *sigh* To be fair, the second was probably useless anyway - about half a minute to go.

    Another day. Another game. Another poorly defended set piece. *sigh*

    I know that changing a system takes time, and we're trying to change both defensively and offensively. That said, it's frustrating to see us throwing away points on terrible defending. All three goals against came as a result of stupid mistakes. Shouldn't happen. I hope to see our attack getting better eventually. We really struggle when we try to dictate games.
