  1. This. He carried us for 5 months last season. He’s a good player who just needs a rest.
  2. If I remember rightly, after he got it in the face, he headed the resulting corner to the halfway line before collapsing in a heap semi unconscious.
  3. According to Howson Forestieri’s mystery knee injury was ACL surgery so he was never in a million years going to be back for January. So it was either a blatant lie or the medical team don’t actually know what an ACL is. Either way it’s a disgrace.
  4. For now yes. Can’t deny that we need tightening up. The goals conceded against Burton were up there with the worst goals I have ever seen us concede and I’ve seen us concede some embarrassing goals. They were bad due to shape, attitude and application throughout the entire team. The first one, one of eight players could have prevented it so as a team we need to address it. It wont be hard to make us more creative without sacrificing being more organised, purely because, by the sound of things, we might occasionally pass it forwards, and we might occasionally put the ball in the box, and we might occasionally do it before we’ve allowed all eleven of theirs to have a gentle stroll back to their box. Nobody gives a poo about negative football if you win. They do if you’ve triangled everybody to sleep for 90 minutes and then lost.
  5. So a new manager who met the players on Monday wouldn’t allow himself as long as possible to form an opinion on the players? Be surprIsed if he’s finished picking it by Friday morning.
  6. Exactly that. What needs to happen is: 1) Get the ball past the half way line in less than 25 passes 2) Do not give the opposition time to regain shape before we decide to go at them. 3) Get some pace for the counter 4) Get two wingers who can beat a man and hit the box That's it. Brian Laws knew it, Sturrock knew it, Megson knew it. And none of them have written a book about the transitions from defence to attack. Not everything in life has to be so complicated. Just let them play football.
  7. At this point in time, with the injuries we have, Abdi is probably more likely to be the answer to our problems although he does have that annoying tendency to pass the ball to the strikers which must be stamped out of his game.
  8. He was declared bankrupt soon after he left Chesterfield when he was still only 26 (He's only 32 now). Think he was still trying to live the footballers lifestyle despite playing non-league. He's just out earning a wage, fair play to him. Probably should have tried earning one while he was a footballer. We have had some lazy fckers in our time.
  9. I'd agree with that. Looks a different player in the two games I have seen. Looks stronger and fitter and more like he wants to get involved. He needed to adapt and looks like he might have gone the right way about it.
  10. This really. We fell down this season because we had a team full of players like Judge and Knockaert. Gifted players but small and we lost the physical battle.. Same thing was happening first half v Brighton until Hutchinson came on and stopped them having their own way. Need some players who will do a bit of smashing about when our triangles aren't working, or we're not being given space. We need more players who can get something from nothing in games like that. Not 30 yard worldies, just a simple nod in from a corner. All teams need to do is mark Lees and Loovens and they might as well have had a goal kick. There is not much wrong with the first 11. We need a plan B. These players just make plan A bigger. We desperately need some variety. Nuhiu and Joao isn't it.
