  1. Only ever performed well over a long period when paired with a commanding partner. Borner could maybe be that, but he’s never captain material and he’s probably the worst player we have in terms of footballing ability and their second goal today proves that
  2. Was only saying other day he looks more stacked than he’s ever done. He was always gangly in his younger days, but looks like he’s hit the gym and has helped his game. Proper menace of a centre forward now, with his physicality and the fact he’s wiling to put himself in where it hurts. Was chuffed for him he’s broke his all time season record as well, hopefully he can push on and get 20 before end of season
  3. He’s had a good career and been a great england servant. But I did think the goal scoring record (albeit a record) is inflated as he scored loads against lower teams in qualification but was less effective when it mattered in major tournaments.
  4. Hes spent the past decade or so assisting Simon Greyson at various clubs.
  5. Iorfa would of been more effective last night in midfield, he can go past a man with ease. We struggled to that last night
  6. Game last night was crying out for someone like lee, our forward line was static and literally in a line, no willingness to drop in for the ball, with there defence doing a good job of covering the space in behind and stopping the wingers getting many crosses in. Then bannan or hutch dropped in deep to collect leaving reach and the other midfield marked out the game, which became even worse when we went 442. Which forced us long, against two 6ft something centre halves. Lee would of found the spaces in the midfield to help us turn on the floor in tight spaces. Instead of a hoof ball game we couldn’t possibly win.
  7. Has to be Kieren Lee for me. Probably one of the best midfielders we’ve ever had. Closely followed by Loovens Antonio hooper
  8. Obviously the build up could of been different so you could point fingers at outfield players. but Westwood has limited influence on that, his job is to keep the ball out the net, surely with the momentum of the ball, if he had softer hands he could of helped it on its way for a throw-in or a corner. Basic defending, that you teach little kids you play the ball to the sides away from the central danger area, which is the exact opposite of what he did. I expect better from him, but he’ll no doubt save us more than he costs us this season, so you take the rough with the smooth.
  9. Another nearly man, who’s part of the recycled crap championship managers who keeps getting a job despite never actually achieving anything
  10. Replacing him with an equal will more than likely cost a fair bit of cash. Better to bump his wages. For me he could have 5 years left in him. As a goalkeeper he’s arguably coming into his prime years. 34-38
  11. Ff on left side of midfield = more consistency
  12. Not convinced he’s a good apple, and that’s probably why he’ll be off
  13. Pure quality, i wonder how many people have searched his name and inadvertently been directed to xxxx sites
  14. Hutchinson has been here for a number of years with his injury record, and I’d say lee is a much better player. And Hutchinson is very good, so why wouldn’t he be worth a contract. Not sure if the rumours are true with Carlos playing him when injured to try and save his own skin, but whatever happened that season has clearly been the main factor in him being injured over the last year. Hes been unlucky getting other injuries in the road to recovery, but if he’s is through that and can stay fit, a kieren lee who can contribute 25 games (a bit like Hutchinson) is worth a contract and the risk. He was outstanding in the play off final season, if he stays fit, he is one of the best in this league.
  15. Keep hooper, Westwood, Palmer, lee. try and sign hector, Lazard, Arrons, iorfa
  16. Call it what you will, but mistakes in crunch games that end up costing could be called bottling it. When you know a player is capable of doing something technically then they fluff it because of pressure that’s a mental thing and it’s bottling it for me (all opinions of course).
  17. Not wanting to count any chickens, but if what’s happened since Christmas is anything to go by, we should be promoted this time next year. Lets not forget it’s still not mathematically impossible to get playoffs. If we can beat norwich, and Bristol, result depending, it could still be alive with the last few games to play.
  18. Think a few of our players bottled it, as they have done in previous big games since chansiri came in. Fletcher missing the peno, weetwood for their 2nd, palmer for their third we we need to be mentally for resilient
  19. I think playing alongside Tom lees hasn’t helped him, who has proved he needs babysitting by an experienced centre half ever since he came here, it’s ironic that van Akans better games came when he was paired with vanencio or loovens.
  20. Obviouslt stam would go and buy a world class centre half if he had the coin and the draw of the club he’s at. But being where he is, maybe he’s thinking this guy had/has some potential, and is worth a punt, as if he can get him playing again he’s got a 3 million + centre half for next to nowt
  21. Don’t you think there is a player in him? under the right direction
