    George Boyd

    I agree three up front makes sense to a certain extent, especially with all the strikers we have. Only problem is that means four at the back. Maybe with Lees and Hutch fit that's a possibility. I assume Jos defaulted to three / five at the back down to the dire injury crisis we had in January. Its also serves a purpose as the full backs can get forward more, but they have to have attacking intent, especially at home.

    George Boyd

    I don't agree we don't have an RWB. We've got Liam Palmer, and he smokes Marujana. For what it's worth if I had to pick the team I'd pick the team below. I'm not saying this should be the first team every week though. We have to use the squad, especially in the forward positions. We can't have this first team second team nonsense we had under Carlos. It means you've written off half the squad, which makes no sense. You've got to play Van Aken for him to learn. If he plays along side Lees, Pudil or Hutch then he'll soon learn to play consistently at this level. I'm sure he'll play at a higher level than this one day. If we rotate it will pay dividends with fitness / fatigue levels later in the season. We might not have the best players in the league, but I'm sure we've still got one of the biggest squads, that is why I'm not concerned about signings. I'm sure we're still on our way back Dave. FF Bannan, Joey, Boyd Reach. Palmer Lees, Van Aken, Hutch

    Another pathetic manager

    I think it's highly within the realms of possibility that Jos was told we'd be under embargo by the summer when he took the job. All Credit to Jos for taking on such a difficult situation. He turned around a highly toxic situation and finished the season strongly. We seem to have short memories regarding the financial catastrophe which brought our club out of the Premier League and nearly into division four. I've got every confidence Jos and Mr C will take us back to the Premier League

    Reach as LWB

    I'd like to think Boyd is not the attacking midfield version of Jordan Rhodes. I'm sure he'll play a part. I don't think Boyd has much to offer at LWB

    Reach as LWB

    Its time to see what George Boyd can do as an attacking midfielder also. Reach is a good player, but going forward we're spoilt for choice. Reach would still be a threat from LWB and his work rate is needed in that position.
  7. We need more pages on the subject. When he signs for Leicester we need to have achieved at least 200 pages of bile on this subject for the Guardian to report on. Let's stop playing the victim and move on. At least we still have Almen Abdi... I feel sory for poor old Daniel Levy!

    Todays attendance at #SWFC

    I think the damage has already been done. We're twenty years into this debacle. That's why the majority belief our chances this year are slim, despite having an embarrassment of riches compared to five years ago.

    Fletch

    You could also say our defense and midfield dawdling on the ball, drawing the opposition into our own half, cost us two points today in the first half. Each player has a part to play in the result. Fletcher played well. I'd start him against his old club on Thursday for sure.

    Fletch

    Well we agree on that then

    Fletch

    Do you think he should have been booed or simply blanked as he left the field, and what would that achieve?
  12. s8owl75

    Fletch

    I don't doubt that's good for FF, but Fletch looked isolated. And when Fletch went wide there were times when their was no one up front. I trust Jos saw this. We were more direct towards the end. We always look more effective when we play more direct.
  13. s8owl75

    Fletch

    He turned up and put in a shift and got in position to take the chances. He's been a long time out. I can remember a time when he would have taken the chances. I believe that day will return, soon.

    Fletch

    He had a good game and looked dangerous. Always does. Shame about the finishing today. All the strikers will have a role to play this year. Ironically at times today he could have done with another striker alongside him FF played too wide for me.
  15. It's August. The time for being realistic is October, and even then things can change. The realism in the stadium is tangible. If we don't believe then it's more difficult for the players to believe. I can see the faults just like everyone else can. I'm sick of seeing the opposition running through our midfield without challenge. I'm sick of seeing our forwards and midfielders not showing similar courage on the ball against our opponents. I also question why it looked like we were playing one up top at home today. I don't choose to write off their chances though. They are young. They can improve. They need to believe in their own abilities. I wont give them the excuse of writing off their chances. I'm sick of hearing Radio Sheffield talk about signings and embargoes. We still have the biggest squad I've ever known. I won't let the players have this as an excuse either. We're not playing Barcelona or Real Madrid this year. Every game is winnable. I can urge them on when they are on the ball or they are closing down. You can not deny Fletcher could have won it for us today. Talking ourselves out of promotion in August is self fulfilling.
