  1. Urgohide is a centre half playing at full-back in all fairness to him. As much as I like Fletcher I think long term we need a replacement. I don't rate Dawson as much as most on here do. He concedes far too many goals in relation to his fellow goalkeepers in the squad for me for whatever reason? Borner, Iorfa, Harris and Luongo should be part of the future going forward. I wouldn't lose any sleep over losing Fox.
  2. As unlikely as most would think it is, a play-off push is still possible between now and the end of the season so any chance of a complete overhaul now is slimmer than slim. In the short term we need one or two new options up front as Fletcher is out for a while and could be out for the season? Getting in good options will have as we've already seen prove to be difficult. Winnall reminds me of Andy Booth, will run around a lot but provide very little threat in front of goal. Nuhiu is probably the way to go but has his limitations not least his lack of mobility to get around the pitch. If we don't play a front two, forget Rhodes. He's the most likely to move on in this window IMO albeit on Loan? Apart from bringing in a defender that can play either right or left-back, I'm struggling where at the moment we can also strengthen. Long term I do think we need to change things around, perhaps even go for a complete change of approach? I think we have the base of a decent defence with Iorfa and Borner. I think we need a fresh approach from the full-back areas but whether we'll get this in the short to medium term remains to be seen? The midfield is where I think we need to change things drastically. I would even think of moving Bannan on as much as I rate him as a player. The reasoning behind this is a lot of our play goes through him and this may be as big a reason as any as why we've become very stale in our play. As I've said before I would look to make Luongo central to our fresh approach but as good as he's been on the pitch, he hasn't been on it very often and he's now staring down the barrel of three more games out. Kieran Lee is a very talented player but there's understandably a big question mark over him after such a long time out injured. I would go as far as saying it's probably the end of the road here for him and Hutchinson who also has served the club with distinction? I would also seriously look at Reach. I've never in all honesty been his biggest fan and understandably I've copped critisicm for this view from the High Council of OT for having this view but he is whether you agree with this view or not, a big part of our problematic midfield conundrum and along with Bannan do we move him on to facilitate a fresh approach? As for the forwards, there will be an opportunity come the summer for a totally new approach. Personally I'd keep Nuhiu for what he offers as a squad player as much as anything but I'd move the others on including Fletch as much as I think he's top class like Hooper we need to look at how many games we're going to get from him and like we did with a heavy heart with Hooper we have to move him on. Rhodes may still be here and if we got a durable target man in, I wouldn't be adverse to giving it one more go with him? As for the manager, we have to stick with someone now. We've had too many changes in a short space of time and we now have Monk and we should probably give him a chance to build something. That said perhaps it's time we were fair with him and gave him the opportunity to bring in his own staff. Bullen, Thompson et al have been good servants to the club but perhaps like some of the players who've been here a while, it's time for them to go? A big task ahead on so many levels and one with no guarantees that we'll get the solutions we think we need or want?
  3. Watford’s players are a damn sight better than ours, are they not?
  4. I don't want to be too critical of Monk. It's still early days in his reign and he's got a big job on his hands. He's got a squad full of players who have never been up to it or past their best. He's only made one signing and this is for the under 23's in the short term. He needs 2 years at least but he won't get it from the chairman if the fans kick off and bay for a change which they probably will at some stage in the near future? Hillsborough is a f***ing horrendous place to play. Perform well and you might as well be playing in a library. Play badly and you may as well playing in front of the host and an audience on the Jeremy Kyle show.

  6. All these who want to see the back of Westwood, be careful what you wish for? Dawson isn’t, never has been and never will be at his level.
  7. We concede the first goal at home too many times which is a problem when you’re as prolific as we are at home
  8. Good call. I’m glad he’s resisted the temptation to start Nuhiu. He has been poor the last few games he’s started though I’m sure he’ll start some more games before the end of the season. I wonder with both Lees and Hutchinson both on the bench, we’re starting to see the beginning of the end of their Wednesday careers and the inevitable start of a New Era at the club?
  9. I’m not saying he doesn’t deserve a new contract offer, he probably does? Along with Palmer, he has done better than previously with us over the last twelve months or so. Our defensive record over this period undoubtedly shows this. My view is neither offer a great deal going forward which I believe we need more of in order to progress. We’ve tied down Palmer for the next 2 and a half years. Fox would expect at least a 2 year deal therefore meaning we in general go for the foreseeable future with the status quo which I think would be a mistake?
  10. Who’d arguably expect his club to be part of any breakaway from the EFL?
  11. TBH I haven’t got a clue? All I know from the outside looking in is they seem to be presiding over a farce?
  12. As if Derby wouldn’t appeal that? I can see the EFL facing serious financial problems chasing all these clubs and it’s by no means certain they’ll win the cases? I think we’d look to take them to the cleaners should we win our case?
  13. Morris will be just as belligerent as Chansiri perhaps even more so?
  14. TBH apart from strengthening the forward positions I’m not sure what we need and it must be difficult for the club with the EFL cloud hanging over us. On one hand there must be a temptation to spend but deep down we probably don’t want to be seen as sticking two fingers up at the EFL though it would be very nice to be in a position to do so? I think the Hidalgo deal may be the type of deal we may look to do from now on as it gives us a bit of cover for next season should we not be in a position to strengthen as there could be a shedload of players leaving in the summer?
  15. As much as I rate him, it’s hard to see him forcing his way into the side at the moment. I can see Murphy having a big second half of the season.
