  1. You were unlucky on Saturday as I don't think you deserved to lose the game - you were much the better team in the second half and if there was a goal, it looked like it would come your way. The game changed when Barry and Brunt came and added a bit more impetus to our midfield. The game is based on fine margins - and you cannot legislate for Iorfa and Palmer to be ball watching and to get beaten by such a basic, route one long ball. It was basic defending and they made a pigs ear of it. Lees and Borner would have gobbled that up. Bannan was excellent and provides that control in midfield. Lee ideally needs to get close to Fletcher. I know Forestieri has his issues but he is undoubtedly a match winner, he has quality, and its imperative that Monk gets the best out of him.
  2. Getting Forestieri onto the pitch is key. Words fail me as to how Murphy gets so much game time. It was a blessing to see him play 90 mins on Saturday - he's awful. Agree that support needs to get closer to Fletcher - he often looks too isolated. Lee, for exmaple, has to get much closer, especially when you consider how good Fletcher is aerially..
  3. We've used a number of the seats for advertising this season Aside from SWFC, Blues and Leeds, nobody else sells out their allocation.
  4. Sawyers and Livermore are a big miss - they've been excellent this season. Sawyers plays the game with wing mirrors attached to his head - a rolls royce of a midfielder. I would expect Krovinovic and Brunt to start in central midfield - Ajayi will remain at centre half. It looks incredibly lightweight to me though.. Barry needs some minutes in the legs before coming into the side..
  5. He is. although he's being phased out now. Also, he's not and never will be a defensive midfielder to answer a previous comment.
  6. I didn't quite mean it like that... just delighted it isn't Pulis..
  7. Good appointment I reckon. Thought he was excellent last season at Blues. Blues were hamstrung with tight budgets etc and he got their side to over-perform. They were favourites to be relegated in some quarters following his departure. Could have been worse...
  8. Well... I would hardly call Craig Dawson an asset. He was a centre half who played at right back, just because he could defend narrowly and was impressive at attacking the ball at set pieces. He was, and remains a bang average defender. The sole requirement for him was to pin a large diagonal ball into Saloman Rondon who was often, miles on his own. Evans (his best signing for us) left because of a clause in his contract for £2million. Rodriguez - vastly over-rated. Good money made from him though. The best asset we sold was Rondon. That being said, Pulis failed to use him appropriately. He was signed as a battering ram and when he was capable of so much more. But, if you're relying on James McClean to provide the neccesary service then maybe we were stuffed !
  9. He signed a bunch of plodders whose only ability was to lump it forward and get organised. Brilliant. He signed Nacer Chadli, Serge Gnabry, Callum McMannaman and then had no clue what to do with them. Then when he fvcked off, no manager could get a tune out of them because they were incapable of trying anything remotely expressive than defending your penalty area. And then comes to the disillusionment in the stands. The swathes of empty seats, the continued loss of revenue. The fans accepting the poo football because of some impressively boring 0-0s draws, and the fans who want him gone and better football. The outcome - anger, annoyance and frustration. You then turn to a club legend, whose hopefully out of their depth, just to try and unite the football club. Whilst trying to rebuild a football club. It doesn't work. Middlesbrough, like us last year, will soon realise.
  10. He's a dinosaur - and not very pleasant one either. His appointment might seem quite appealing until you're into about the 15th game of his reign and you line up with four centre halves & four defensive midfielders at home. And he'll leave behind a very one dimensional squad only capable of playing his god awful brand of football. Football is primarily a results based business, I understand that, but there is more to it than witnessing his soulless, turgid brand of football every week.
  11. This SAG are laughable. They and SYP must be the only organisations in the country that are incapable of dealing with a crowd. I think it is them that needs a look at themselves not SWFC. I find it hard, under any circumstance, to find one good reason as to why pushing 10,000 or more fans onto an extremely busy main road is more safer than allowing entry/access via the LL. I can only take the impression that they seem to be waiting for accidents to happen to allow them to justify this shoddy, ill-thought report they have approved. Surely, holding the away fans for 10 minutes to allow the surrounding areas to disperse is more safer than the current poo show they have created? (not that it was a problem before).
  12. They're a good "footballing side". Pretty in possession and all that. Any goal kick will be played short. Press them in their own half and watch a Jones' side collapse. 3-1 Wednesday. Mon the Owls !
  13. Again another limited footballer. He's currently with us. Given we paid £15mil for him we have to invest some time in him. He's not very good mind. Seems to have gone backwards from that wonder kid of a few years ago. He's on a separate coaching plan to the others.
  14. I thought he was going to be an excellent signing Signing a good player who had seemingly done well in the Premier League then realised I was referring to his twin brother.
  15. Apologies if not, but I thought they were looking at another loan? Might be wrong, but I'd certainly explore those Premier League academies.
