  1. Tom Lees

    Agreed. Great at champ level but he lacks pace and isn't great on the ball, both of which would have him found out at the level above.
  2. Carlos - A question

    You can't play a 4-4-2 and accommodate 3 central midfielders without playing one out of position. It might be stating the obvious but that's the case. It's up to Carlos to either change the system or the personnel. Trouble is we don't have a left winger now that Reach had made the LB position his own, and FF is out. 3-5-2 would be ideal but we don't seem to have enough coverage at CB, not that's proven anyway. Tough decisions but I won't sympathise with Carlos whatever happens, it's his job to choose a preferred formation and ensure he has the squad to play it effectively over the course of a season.
  3. Carlos Out...?

    Played well today and deserved the win. Credit where it's due we were at it from the off for once! That being said my opinion on Carlos hasn't changed. Do I think he's a good coach? Yes. Do I think he's capable of getting us promoted? No. For that reason I think change is more of a when than if, I hope I'm wrong though!
  4. Man of the match

    Reach for me, didn't put a foot wrong. Hunt had a great game and I'm normally one of the first to berate his indiffferent performances. Need to keep reach at LB from here on in
  5. Carlos defends his tactical approach

    Enter press conference Deny Deny Deny Nonesense Analagy Vaguely Blames Player(s) Claim 25k people are wrong every week Say team need the support of the crowd Leave press conference Serve up another awful performance on Saturday PM ... Aaaand repeat.
  6. Probably not the worst thing taking all things into consideration. The recovery from his injury will remove him from the presence of the first team squad for a while which will hopefully settle things down. None of of us know what's gone on but for me he's been involved in too much trouble over the last year for it all to be a coincidence. I'm happy for him to be replaced when he gets fit again
  7. I think most fans are already bored and fed up with it
  8. At the start of the season I thought we'd be clear favourites in the Derby. Looking at how both teams have played is say them across the road are favourites and I fully expect us to lose. mainly because they'll play with passion and we'll probably sleep for the first 45 mins
  9. I think it's too late in the day to ship him out and bring in a quality replacement, even if we have someone lined up already. Id sell him inspite of this because I think he has the ability to have a negative influence on team spirit, but this is all too late in the day. Buying in January is also a nightmare as the value is none existent. We've really dropped a b@llock this summer.
  10. If's and but's : Jordan and Fernando

    Theres absolutely no reason for a Nuhiu or Joao to be at the club anymore.

    You missed the 'in my opinion part'. I also can't take your 10,000/1 comment seriously
  12. Forestieri to Fulham 12m

    I disagree. Unfortunately there's no way of knowing until it happens ...
  13. Forestieri to Fulham 12m

    I'm not sure what your point is. Keeping Carlos on in the summer was a bad decision, and no matter how much we all get behind him he isn't capable of taking us to the Premier League. I cant see how our fans can be anything less than frustrated at the way we're playing.
  14. Forestieri to Fulham 12m

    Id love you to explain what our achievements are? Losing in the playoff final in 2016?l Or the semis in 2017? To me they're not an achievements. What have we achieved exactly? How have those 'achievements' benefitted us in any way? We're no better off than if we finished 8th each season. Whilst we're talking about achievements I wouldn't even say Carlos has developed the squad and team harmony since his first season, if anything we've gone backwards!
  15. Forestieri to Fulham 12m

    Fans like Ike you do my head in. Literally no mention of the tens of millions that have been invested in the squad to get us to a position where we failed in the playoffs two years running. Is there risk in changing manager? Absolutely. Can we quantify that risk currently? Probably not. But there's also risk in keeping the same manager, and can we quantify that risk? (In my opinion) Yes - 100% he won't take us up. So keep on with the happy clapping but our fans shouldn't have to apologise for wanting to see a return on the substancial financial investment that's been made in recent years. We've all sat through the last 15 years of scrapping the barrel to afford a £500k player and I want to get to the next level as soon as possible before the investment dries up.
