  1. I’m not particularly impressed with Jacob Murphy so far. Seems to lack that pre-requisite for a footballer which is some willingness and fight. Seems to be on the periphery of the game on the whole. I did prefer Rolando Aarons although I understand who we didn’t go back in for him given his injury record.
  2. One question for everybody. Why do we consistently give away more fouls than the opposition? Pretty much every game this season. Are we a dirty and cynical team? Are the refs biased? Or are we a set of naive daft c00nts?
  3. We won’t play 4-2-3-1. More like 4-1-4-1. Luongo will play alongside Bannan.
  4. Westwood Moses Iorfa Borner Palmer Luongo Hutch Bannan Reach Fletch Harris Bench; Dawson Lees Fox Lee Murphy Dave FF
  5. I think It will be a one out and one in policy. Don’t think DC is going to throw more money at it short term. Plus, I think he’s learned that throwing money about doesn’t automatically guarantee you promotion. I’d like us to bring in a couple of strikers but that’ll be dependant on us getting shut of Rhodes and Winnall. I really would allow Rhodes to leave on a free permanently to allow us and the player to move forward. I wouldn’t look at addressing left back until the summer.
  6. It’s not gone well for FF over the last 2/3 years, some of his own making but a lot which he has been unlucky. Lets see what Monk can get out of him. Defensive shape is good, we look solid and if we can get FF firing, he could be the difference for us this season. Can’t wait to get him back in the 18.
  7. We need to get Rhodes out of the door on a permanent. Even if there’s no fee involved, it would be good for the player and SWFC. Also receptive for Winnall leaving. Id look to get a striker in on loan who has pace and to provide us with a different option up top. I really would try and get this best that’s out there for us. Possibly a left back but that maybe is a position we look to address in the summer. The squad is balanced and we have Forestieri to come back.
  8. I’ve said on numerous threads and others have said the same that our defensive shape is very good. You can also look at the goals conceded and that a number of those have been mistakes, Odubajo’s penalties against Preston and Westwood has made a few errors. I don’t think we will be pretty this season but our shape at the back gives me some confidence. We are hard working and we have a got a touch of class with Bannan and Harris. Get Forestieri firing and we could do something this season.
  9. I think it’s a very average league this year. Fulham, Leeds and the Baggies look the best sides and I would expect them 3 to be top 6. There are 3 spots up for grabs and we have a chance given how poor the league is.
  10. Absolutely solid as a rock. Love that in a defender. Has he made a mistake yet? Don’t want to tempt fate but I can’t remember one.
  11. Got to say, he played well today. Thought he did well in the holding role.
  12. He knows what he’s doing does Monk. I’ve commented on here that defensive shape is good and he’s already done a lot of work there. I really do think we are in safe hands.
  13. 4 at the back all season. Happy to vary the formation in midfield and attack.
  14. I thought Big Dave played well last night. Yes, he’s not a massive goal threat and I always think he’s better off the bench as an impact sub but he definitely provides a big contribution to the group. Miles more effective than Rhodes and Winnall. We definitely need a pace option up front in January to provide us something different. I’d also offer Rhodes to Norwich for no fee to get him off our wage bill for the benefit of club and player.
  15. Shouldn’t have lost last night. Didn’t deserve it. It wasn’t a bad performance by any means. I thought Winnall and Rhodes looked very poor and Reach didn’t do a great deal after the first 20 mins. Otherwise, the team and individual performances were ok.
