re: Wed. post-practice press conference about to start - tigerfan88
We'll see. I've been pleasantly surprised by Monty in the spurs game and these two playoff games, but that's partly bc my bar is so low. His specific in game stuff, timeouts, rotations, etc have all been alright. But our offense in the second half of game 2 was pretty putrid. It basically consist...

re: What the hell happened in the 4th? - tigerfan88
Davis seems to have lost confidence in his 18 footer over the past couple of weeks. Maybe his finger is still acting up. As much as I hate draymond, he does a good job guarding Davis' drives. Plus there's a help defender a lot of the time. He has four inches on green, he needs to just rise up and sh...

re: This town can become a Pelicans town - tigerfan88
Or even both at the same time. Look at cities like Boston and San Francisco, they not only have top level support for their basketball and football teams, but baseball as well. All of which overlap to some degree. Theres no reason rabid support for Pels and Saints can't exist side by side...

re: Holiday off the bench brings this team to a different level - tigerfan88
The defensive strategy was genius. Don't double, give up "advantageous" two's but nothing easy. That's what we did. Holiday and cole were great at that. Let Parker try and win the game with only floaters and long 2's, And it worked. He couldn't. SA wins with open threes. Holiday helped take thos...

re: ATT uverse customers about to get shafted by Fox Sports 1 - tigerfan88
I know it's coming and I'm still going to lose my fricking mind when Fox fricks up the next two world cups with their shitty watered down coverage and they're 100% going to put WC games on FS1 and FS2...

re: Remaining schedules for Pels and Thunder - tigerfan88
I could see the Thunder losing every game but the Wolves game pretty easily, depending on if Boogie plays and how much Portland tries in that game. I think at Indy is a loss, Indiana just got Paul George back and has an outside shot at the 8 seed. ...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
Perhaps he should have, but he didn't. What Wenger has done over the last 3 seasons in the transfer market and in terms of shaping this squad has been incredible. Has he been perfect? No, but he's been patient and stuck to his guns and principles and built the deepest and most balanced squad since t...

re: Best Performers Statistically in the EPL - tigerfan88
Well since Coquelin has anchored Arsenal's midfield, almost half a season now, Arsenal have been better than Chelsea. That, combined with said statistics...well I'm not really sure why you're laughing. Even though that wasn't the point of the statistics post at all...

re: English FA is seeking tougher rules for work permits - tigerfan88
Yeah there's a really good section on this in soccernomics where it explains that the reason England fell behind the rest of Europe was bc they were too isolated and myopic. This will only make that worse ...

Yeah he's still a defensive monster, but his dalliances on the ball and lack of first touch passing really showed against Monaco and today. Of course he's like Pirlo in his prime on the ball compared to Flamini so...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
I don't know if one athlete has ever made so many mistakes in the closing moments of a game. Mickeys performance would be like missing a wide open goal, scoring an own goal, and conceding a penalty in the last ten minutes of a game...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
He grew up a pool fan, and I think Wenger sees selling to pool and Walcott sees going to pool as less of a betrayal and less of a "selling to a rival" as selling to City, United, or Chelsea. That being said, most of the rumors link Walcott going to pool with Sterling being sold which I don't see...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
That's true as well. When he gets the ball 30+ yards away from goal if there isn't another player immediately nearby for him to pass to you know nothing is coming from the move. Giroud is far from perfect, and I would absolutely take a Lewandowski, Ibra, or Benzema over him. All 3 guys offer his siz...

re: Patrick Peterson's tourney bracket - tigerfan88
The point is he said Viginia would "dismantle us." We've been blown out of exactly one game all year, against Tennessee. We've come played several pretty good teams, and one elite team, all who play very different styles. We've yet to be even close to dismantled by any of them. If we played UVA we v...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
Sergio Aguero missed three decent chances against Burnley and missed a fricking penalty against Barca. Sturridge has a been wasteful as frick since coming back from injury. RVP and Falcao can't hit the broadside of a barn for Man U. Costa and Giroud average the exact same goals per 90, Costa does it i...

re: Pels vs Bucks game thread| Pels 85 Bucks 84| FIN| so lucky, so so lucky. - tigerfan88
Whoevers man set the screen should've switched onto Ilyasova. It wasn't Tyreke bc his guy cut towards the basket earlier. Davis maybe should've done better in getting through the screen but you don't bank on that to contest a last second shot. Someone should've switched...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
In hindsight we should've started Walcott over him from the beginning. Monaco wasn't even pretending to try offensively so walcotts lack of tracking back wouldn't have been an issue. But early on when there was at least some room having someone just make runs off the back shoulder could have been us...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
We put way too much emphasis on the first leg. We think we have to win it every year and so as soon as we give up a goal we panic and inevitably crumble. Wenger needs to beat into the team that a tie or one goal defeat in the first leg isn't the end of the world. That being said soccer is a game...
