Been reading the Barnsley forum... according to their fans he isn't that quick, is poor at holding the ball up, has poor control but is very good in the air & at finishing. In other words a poacher, someone we'd throw on at the end if we're bombarding the opposites box to grab a draw or win. Think Nuhiu but with goals.

 

 

They will know better than us, but from looking at his best bits his touch looks ok, he has a tendency to be able to score in the 6 yard box and also arrive late to mix things up. His goals in the playoffs were quite direct and tricky so they may be doing him a bit of a disservice now he may be leaving

We have Hooper, and Forestieri, we don't need anyone else. He isn't a patch on those two, so it would again be a case of bringing in someone who's not even as good as what we have. Fletcher, Joao and Nuhiu are plenty enough back up

Really. How many goals have those 3 got between them this season.

Winnall signing = finally a begging to the end of working with dingle brigade; 'We are the smallest club in the world...(so don't matter if we get tonked) But we are only 4 points behind...etc' Oh and FF is average, Consistently use the tag as the 'smallest club ever from a pit town' to put them in a no lose situation - I hate it,

That being said Winnall will do nothin here also, Zlatan wouldn't score with the service we'd provide here,

Can't remember a good ball in the box - Macca is the key, Hopefully this Fox and Reach combine- We'll see but centrally the problems remain, Can see Winnall looking back at Bannan wondering where Hourianne is,

But like I say I'd take him to shut some of them up - Also make a mockery over the fact that WInnall is a Leeds fan who never got his move there due to tinpot chairman offerings just to shut his fans up,

Couldn't agree more. Passing ball sideways and backwards and playing at a slow tempo, Doesnt matter who is up top. 

 

It's right that creativity is our biggest problem which needs to be addressed but you can't pick what order you sign players in and for all we know the club are trying to sign creative players too. Signing one of the in form strikers now ahead of our rivals can only be a good thing 

 

For example we've been linked with Farfan who was at the top of the assist charts whilst playing in Germany so if that's true then it would seem creativity is something we want to improve on. Plus we've signed McManaman and maybe Abdi is actually really injured 

 

I'm going to wait until end of January, then be concerned if creativity hasn't been addressed

Proper teams don't score from crosses in to the box, except from set pieces.

Couldnt disagree more, i'd wager more goals are scored by crosses than thru balls.

 

A cross doesnt have to land on a target mans head, at top teams it is often a sideways low pass either into danger areas or into a forwards path, possibly with whip and bend. With a decent ball in the box theres often a rebound chance too.

 

Only top players can really deliver all types of cross well and if they can do that they can probably pisss a straight thru ball! 

 

Crosses can be very hard to defend too, especially when defenders are running backwards!

 

Our lack of good crosses, not getting behind teams and too few easy chances are the main reason we're not scoring enough imo

Is Winnall more a number 9 or 10? Only seen him play a few times so not sure.

 

Neither with our numbering system

Not sure how legit this is but Nixon usually calls loads . Barnsley fans love him trust me , any bad pointers are sour grapes . From what I've seen class finisher good in the air. Average pace

I partly agree with what you're saying but I'm not convinced we actually need more creative players (though it wouldn't hurt). I think it's more the style/tactics/formation Carlos likes to play that means we create very few chances. The same type of match pretty much week in, week out would suggest this. We know we've got strikers who can score goals and Bannan, Reach, Abdi, Wallace could all be described as creative players. Add to that Macmanaman who's ability to beat a man and actually put in good crosses consistently will hopefully be a huge boost when it comes to supplying our forwards. 

This is not an attack on Carlos either, on the flip side we are a very solid team on the whole who are hard to beat but I also feel we are quite easy to defend against.

I'm hearing exciting whispers.

 

It's done. Also...

 

Winnall signing DOESNT end our interest in Rhodes.

From a very good source this about an hour and a half ago we are the only club to have made a bid for Winnall, it's looking probable but nothing definite yet.

Either way Winnall wants to leave Barnsley.
