    Defence issues

    I likeThornilly, and Penney, but if we're going to play 3 at the back, how about Pudil, Lees,and Hutch - plenty of experience infront of a young keeper.

    Rhodes in Norwich

    At least he's available for selection - which is more than can be said for some - AND he's not frightened to go there.
  3. I was a bit worried when I saw that FF and Hutch were on the bench - but credit to Jos - it worked. Good games by Penney, Thornily, Preston and Dawson. Great to see youngsters coming through. Fletch was great as was BB. Keep it up Wednesday.

    Millwall next up

    Could be an early night for me.
  5. I'm concerned at the lack of pattern and consistancy. He should know his best 11, and stick to it, and the system, and stick to it. We are in a Division that requires the basics to be done right, that's all. We have players, and are playing against players, who are in the second level of English football for a reason. Get them playing to their strengths and keep it simple. I'm not bothered whether we play 4 4 2, 4 3 3, 5 3 2, 3 5 2, OR EVEN GOALYWAG, just something that the players understand and be effective with.
  6. Why does our season start after 8 games ? All the hype about fitness, the hope about returning players (KL, Hoops, Fletch, FF and Abdi) I just thought we might get off to a flying start - well that's gone. Next 2 games are big for Jos.

    Wanted list....

    Frying pan into the fire

    Big Sam anyone?

    If Fletch had put 2 of those 3 chances away yesterday this thread wouldn't exist. We are where we are. It isn't going to change anytime soon. Give Jos some time and lets see what happens. As for Sam or MM I wouldn't want either.

    Reach as LWB

    I agree. They both played well. I thought some Baker's crossing was good, just needed more targets in the box.

    I'd love it

    It sounds like we're already up - without a paddle

    Was it more enjoyable...

    As an oldie, growing up before we had calculators never mind computers and the internet ( ahhhhhh, who can forget the beloved slide rule and log tables), I have to say the internet is great - just remember - believe nothing anyone tells you, and only half what you see.

    If Sean Clare did a UTurn

    Tbh only just realised he'll be 22 in September. Hardly a kid. If he can't get a regular place in a Championship team - and he's miles behind the likes of Baz, Hutch and KL - then it makes you wonder just how far he's going to go. He needs to eat some humble pie, get his head down and work at his career otherwise it's going to pass him by.

    Westy, Lees, Hutch, Bannan, Hoops, FF, not a bad spine. Add a bit of magic from Nuhui (never thought I'd say that), and Joa - expect top half nudging top 6. If Reach improves on what he did last season he could be important - stays fit, full of energy and capable of being a match winner. B*ll*x to it, top 6 nudging top 2.
  14. New coach/manager can make world of difference to a player. A word here, a suggestion there. Look no further than Nuihu. No one was a bigger critic than me of him, but look at him now. Let's give them all a chance, including the likes of Fox, Jones and the youngsters, and see how things pan out. We're going through transition. Interesting season ahead but might not be the Glory that we all want, YET.
