  1. Was the poor start to those playing at centre half or the complete lack of cover in front of them.
  2. Villa and Sunderland
  3. I want the in between Carlos. One that is rigid when it needs to be and can play football when it wants. A small tweak here or there.
  4. They will have two AM supporting Wells. This is the key area for them, if we allow little give and goes for Wells to run onto if there is space behind then we could be in trouble. Hutch or Jones have to patrol the area. Hutch by tackling, Jones by reading the game. This in turn will allow out fullbacks to get forward as they have coverage. My only real fear is if CC is too cautious and we try and win a two legged tie for the last 20 mins only.
  5. You do realise Huddersfield are better, Newcastle apart, than the teams we played in that 6 match streak.
  6. Anyone who can run with the ball centrally will tear Bannan/Jones a new one. They were awful against Reading and Shelvey only decided to do it for 10 mins in the second half, rest of the match he picked it up off the defenders. There was a reason the midfield sat on top of the defence Sunday and it was to allow no space. Huddersfield love to exploit the space either in between the defence and midfield or behind the defence. We need to get forward more while still being able to cover the space, especially if we want to get the fullbacks going forward. Hutch allows it, Jones allows it but the latter struggles with players running at him.
  7. I don't understand full henergy but there you go
  8. We don't want to put all our eggs in one basket
  9. If Huddersfield can muster the energy for one final push they will be very hard to beat. The never dropped off like most said. No pressure on them what so ever as they have achieved a lot already. We need to be at the top of out game, my only fear is if CC plays, on Sunday, not to lose, if he does I think we will.
  10. He'll end up cutting the grass at Hillsborough, song will have to change though. He's magic you know. He's great at making the grass grow
  11. Never been Player of the Season, probable Player of 2017 but not 2016/17. Two decent cameos spring to mind pre January away at Huddersfield and when he went of the left against Forest? Apart from those he was average at best. A shame the ratings posts on here after matches are not all collated. It would be easier to work out.
  12. Only two players showed any sort of form before the turn of the year and then one got injured. The other has been injured the last month. The rest were either poor or average with the odd decent performance. So it's either Lee or Hutch and Hutch shades it with less time out.
  13. The wide men understanding what is expected of them more, also the forwards. We are talking very small margins but that extra couple of yards of being in space or closing down space makes all the difference. No longer do we appear to be out numbered in midfield. Hooper dropping deep and Reach/ Wallace and now Lee getting beyond. What does a centrehalf do? Follow Hooper and get dragged out of position creating space in behind. Stay where he is and allow Hooper to pick the ball uncontested and ping the ball where he wants. Hoopers passing ability is one of the best in the team. The player receiving the ball very rarely has to stop and wait or go backwards. Just carry momentum in their run. Fullbacks have come alive, the way we play they are very important, Pudil and Hunt have been excellent over the last month. Lastly having to not rely on that one moment of magic from FF has also benefited the team. As we saw when Antonio was here when you rely on one man most of the time the team always looks to that play to give the ball to, becoming predictable.
  14. Depends on the opposition, if it's an open game and Bannan and Lee are allowed to play it's a good pairing. If it's physical or the opposition press quickly Bannan can struggle with both Lee only with the former. Luckily Wallace and Reach have hit form and now appear to know where they are supposed to be on the pitch in terms of staying wide and tucking in. Earlier in the season it looked like they were caught in a no man's land between not knowing when to tuck in and when to stay out wide. It may only be yards we are talking about but being slightly out can cause congestion in the middle or the reverse just one man in the middle,
  15. If not for an injury time equaliser it would be 7 out of 7.
