Sorry, I don't know any pre-war players. :oops:
Nope, you may have missed my they're both 9's post

I'd expect 64 to get it from that

Tuchel one match ban gets suspended so he will have a presence on the touchline tomorrow.

Top six bias
Sky TV conspiracy
FA plot to relegate Leeds to the Vauxhall Conference ( is that still a thing?)

Does it make much difference if he's on the sidelines or not?

Good question.

On balance I would say yes.

He cant get in the ear of the officials as easily for one thing. And his orders are slower to reach the players.
It does depend on how he wields his influence over his team though. The likes of Wenger was a good example he was very vocal during games and his players did respond

There is a correlation between the managers who receive touchline bans and those who are the more able to impose their personally on their side. So them being absent could be a factor.

Jesse believes so

I think that's wrong. A red card is a red card! Players miss the next game, its always been the same for managers. Money talks and don't anyone tell me any different :x

Postponed suspension because he hasn’t been given a written response, nearly a week later. If Jesse does complain any further his written response will be in his inbox within 3 minutes.

The only prolific striker I can think of was Tom(?) Jennings a South African player.

Pre war for one, the other two guessable for sure, they're both 9's
Thinking maybe Yeboah, I remember hims scoring against Liverpool in the first game of the season and also against West Ham so maybe he did.

Possibly also Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink.

If not just top flight then perhaps Becchio or even Davide Somma who I recall being on fire at the start of a season prior to injury,

Said top flight at the start. 64 was close.... Not JFH or Yeboah

Perhaps Rod Wallace then, he seemed to score in flurries. Perhaps even Cantona, I think he got a hat trick v Spurs early in the only season he started for us (and had got the hat trick int he charity shield so was in good form).
