  1. Today
  2. Pulis doesn’t bullshit and that’s massively in his favour. The fact he can take it or leave it should work in our favour if DC lets him do what he or his previous crew obviously couldn’t, i.e. recruit well
  3. TP will not be the arbiter of SWFCs fortunes....to some extent thats already a done deal....Players on decent money coming to the end of long contracts,knowing there time is numbered(you know who you are!!) Others out of form,or simply not fancied by the current manager, & facing an unknown future.... Others frankly simply not good enough,or consistent enough.....Thats the picking pool that our manager(and the previous one) from which our manager will have to pull a rabbit out of a hat...Will it be any surprise than if we continue struggle? COURSE it should make no
  4. Not sure I'd like to see it myself, but it wouldn't surprise me if Pulis sees Iorfa as a right back. He's got all the attributes to play that role in a structured Pulis system. Playing Iorfa at full back, allows us to essentially pick four genuine threats from set pieces (Iorfa, 2 x centre halves, Paterson), which is always a big part of Pulis' arsenal. But from a personal point of view, I'd like Iorfa to continue to make the centre back spot his own, and develop into the Premier League centre half he has the potential to.
  5. Can't see too many changes to be honest. Pulis said the other day, he's reluctant to chop and change because he wants players to get used to their roles. A couple might get a rest, but I suspect, it'll be a similar make up to Saturday's selection. ----------------------------Wildsmith---------------------------- Palmer------------Lees-----------Borner-------Odubajo ----------------------Pelupessy-------Bannan--------------- Harris---------------------Brown----------------------Reach -----------------------------Paterson-------------------
  6. Well last season we lost at Swansea and Preston and this year we got a point.. last season we beat stoke at home 1-0 and this season they’re a stronger team so only drew. The season won’t be determined by the last 3 games.. it will he determined against the dross. This season so far we’ve played 14 games and apart from the 3 game Luton, Rotherham Wycombe debacle we’re about par for the course.. 6 points from them which is what you’d expect with a competent manager and ignoring the points deduction we’d be on 20 and solidly mid table. If Pulis repeats that against them w
  7. I hope it’s the case, there’s no way Pulis will keep us up without an investment in a pair of quality strikers Hopefully, they will be able to turn some of the dull draws into wins. Without an ability to score, we can’t stave off relegation by resolute defending alone
  8. To put it in perspective.. 9 games time and we’re halfway through the season so 25 points is the marker for 50. Would still feel pretty confident given the deduction if we can get to 25 from 25, then we’d need 25 from the last 21 which should be doable. So need 17 points from the next 11 games. Need to beat the likes of Barnsley, Wycombe, Coventry (twice), then one of Derby/Forest/Huddersfield.. that would be 5 wins. Then a couple of bore draws against the likes of Reading, Norwich, Boro and Blackburn to get to 17. The idea that we can be toothless and not w
  9. Everything we say on here is irrelevant really, it's only for people who like doing/talking about the team. I meant 4-5-1, somebody already pointed it out. Thanks for your input though.
  10. True ! You know it, I know it and more importantly TP & DC know it. I am sure common ground will be found. We will give DC a better deal on fishing rights than are being offered to the EU.
  11. Granted, we do, but is that at the expense of trying to win? I can’t fault the performance against Swansea, we were away from home, against a very tough opponent, and we took the game to them. Wasn’t the case against Preston and Stoke though
  12. i dont know where they are but i dont think they'll look good when they appear . .....
  13. Well obviously from my post above DC didn't have enough trust in Monk to give him free reign.
  14. Look at the fixtures once the next two are done.. if we’re waiting for mid January when signings start coming in to win games we could be down already. Nine games we can attempt to win in a row after Norwich so hoping Pulis has a plan to score with the squad we have in those games
  15. yeah but we are playing better ....we look a solid team now in 2 thirds of the pitch .......obviously we need some punch up front but that would be the case no matter who was in charge
  16. But he did, and we lost Had he not done that, and we’d secured a point, at a ground where everyone else gets three, it’s still only 3 points from 9, nowhere near good enough to keep us up
  17. We're only 3 games in jeez...and but for Windass kicking that blokes head off we may well have drawn that game too and been unbeaten under Pulis...come on give it a bit of time yeah??
  18. Only one of them has been a good signing though.
  19. Take a bow son, take a bow. Post of the season contender.
  20. he could have a few games in 23s and if he proves himself at that level then get him back if joe's form takes a dip . ......ive never known anyone be out for a year and not have a few games with the stiffs to get back in the groove ...................but i think we both know he wont do that
  21. Yesterday
  22. he;s played nearly every game ,we arnt shipping goals .....whats he done wrong ?

They should be giving their all...come what may,fighting for a place in the team,gutted when they are left out....   Team doesnt need tinkering or 'fine tuning'...needs a complete overhaul from TP   Remains to be seen if it can be done whilst retaining Championship survival Doesnt matter so much whilst the fans are not in the ground,can always not watch ifollow....when the fans are allowed back,will be the real test..   People want entertaining,and wont want to pay good money and see no  goals,and possession football...   Want attacking fast flowing football,and plenty of goal action....not sideways passing & back to the GK.

Odubajo will probably come back in after his rest at the weekend. His mobility and pace will be useful against Reading's pacy front line...Van Aken could get a runaround if he plays. Not sure Pulis will have seen Bannan's more advanced position as a success, and may see it as a good opportunity to have a look at Brown in that advanced position, and drop Bannan back into the deeper midfield slot.
