  1. I just dont rate him either unfortunately. Can see why managers love him, works really hard, never stops and covers the full back. Its almost as if we play two left backs so when up against a good winger it can work. But hes not the best defender, follows the ball too much and loses his man alot. Which normally leads to them breaking. Not very strong, not very quick, not the best end product. And to be an effective winger you need atleast one of those three and need to be clever enough to compensate for your weakpoints. E.g. wallace, not very quick or strong, but his positioning and end product is good hence why hes effective. Reach just doesnt seem to do much in games apart from run around alot, which is fine if your mid table, but not in the play offs
  2. What a ridiculous thread. 2 losses in 14 in the league Clean sheets coming out our arses Players coming out in droves explaining how much they love it here Best squad in years Best managerial percentage ever An ambitious and wadded owner who loves the club and isnt messing us up like many in this league 6th in the league and miles ahead of 7th Every member of this team is important, whether theyre starting 11 players, fringe players who are putting pressure on the 11 to perform or even some of the players that some may not consider good enough but carlos' trusts to them to do a job when required (nuhiu/semedo) Christ some fans will just never be happy
  3. Cheer up we won... again
  4. I think some of the injuries we've had if anything only backs up the fact that carlos is doing an amazing job to keep us where we are. We're arguably the least 'one man team' out of our top 6 rivals. With newcastle wobbling when they lost shelvey, brighton dont win if dunk/knockheart doesnt play, woods is everything to leeds and derby play everything through ince etc Now at stages of this season weve lost our top goalscorer for months, our most creative midfielder and cog of our team for months, our best CB in lees for months, suspensions to sam and FF and even our keeper for a few games. Yet we have still stayed at the same standard throughout the season. As much as people may not be impressed with carlos' signings he has built one hell of a squad. Now it might not be pretty sometimes but wins are wins. And as much as we're not playing the free flowing attacking football and battering the teams in the bottom half like last year, we're now much better at playing the teams around us and grinding out victories in games we wouldve lost last year. Trust in carlos, we're going places
  5. Whatever villa have offered, treble it, give em the keys to the city for all I care. The gap between our midfield and our strikers is laughable, FF needs to play LM, our most creative player isolated up top just does nothing for us

  8. Hes had reach infront of him who does little tracking back and his poor positional sense means he leaves pudil with two men almost everytime
  9. Don't see the hype regarding him at all. Not quick or skillfull enough to beat a man, never shoots, never crosses, leaves his man constantly when defending, too lightweight and we spent 5 million on the kid. Bet middlesborough are weeing themselves! People seem to think cause he's young its an excuse, drop him next game FF on the left If forrestieri was playing like this we'd be wanting rid.
  10. Reach is dreadful, leaves pudil two meN everytime
  11. As controversial as this may seem, do we need to have this debate? As much as fletchers overall game is better and noone is doubting that he is the better player of the two, does nuhiu bring the best performances out of the team? He certainly got the best out of FF and Hooper last year and with fletchers improved ability in the air it makes us all to reliant on the hoof when tippy tappy isn't working, I personally think he deserves a shot in the team. We don't exactly have alot to lose and it proved last year that it does work. *tin hat on*
  12. Considering hes been one of our best performers so far this season he doesnt really get the recognition in the form of a song. I love the 'his touch is golden, he comes from oldham' one that got sung at a few away matches last year but not really heard it since. Considering he works so hard and can play in a variety of positions I quite like the idea of the yellow submarine song We all dream of a team of kieran lee A team of kieran lee A team of kieran lee X2 Number 1 is kieran lee Number 2 is kieran lee Number 3 is kieran lee Etc..
  13. i'm a season ticket holder, with no points as I don't go to away games but I can't select anything as all the options are greyed out?
  14. I don't think anyone would be able to guess the level of expenditure if we go up, it could be steady, it could be fairly large. But what areas would you say we need to improve should we not go up? what players would you like to see come in? would we lose anyone? I'd personally think the only one we'd be likely to lose would be bannan or tom lees, but given how much he's loving it here and the positive way he talks about the club, fans and the future, i'd like to think he'd stick it out for a year or two should we fail to go up. I think the best way to go up in any league has always been take the best out of the division, linked with a few experienced premier league coups, so players such as moussa dembele from fulham and particularly alan judge at brentford, who I think would suit our style of play perfectly would be fantastic additions. Could dip into the league below? where someone like bradley dack would be a brilliant signing, young, hungry and ripping league one a new one. We all know we need a striker, whether you rate the likes of joao and nuhiu we still need someone in, but who? take a gamble on a prem youngster? take a striker from the lower league (adam armstrong/will grigg?) or buy from champ with expensive but proven quality(mcormack/kodija)? Similar cases could be argued for centre back, full backs, wingers where we are abit bare and lacking quality, be releastically obviously, but with the fanbase, size of the club, money and style of play it would seem we could attract some serious talent, so who would you want in?
