    If we accept that our style is to play tipi-tapi out from defence, through midfield, and on up=front with neat passing and movement off the ball….

    …then why oh why did we water the pitch before kick-off which made everyone slip and slide? I may not know much, but surely we need a fairly dry pitch that we can “zing” the ball about on ?? :shock:

    Sorry – but I don’t see the connection.

    We have of course watered the pitch over the years – but the question now is does it suit our style of play? If we lump it forward then a wet pitch suits – if you want to play fancy passing it doesn’t.

    If we want to zing (good choice of word btw) then we deffo need to water the pitch, probably even more than we do already. Slipping and sliding is down to wrong choice of studs.

    my thoughts exactly, how can a dry pitch be better than a watered one if you want to play high tempo football. surely the wet surface would quicken things up.

    Surely the one thing that the DW pitch doesn’t need is water?

    It’s usually only a bucket or two away from turning into a liquid state.
