    #SWFC don't need to go mad.

    Westwood, Lees, Venancio, Reach, Lee, Bannan, Hutchinson, Forestieri, Hooper. If those 9 play 40 games each next year then we get in the play offs...simple as that. We need pace in wide areas, and a strong midfielder as Hutch aint going to play 40 games probably
  2. I agree, they really need to do it this season otherwise they will lose their 4 best players to the prem.
  3. I’m warming to Jos, after the squad he inherited he deserves the plaudits. However he has benefitted from a fit and firing Forestieri, Bannan and a Nuhiu purple patch. Before that I haven’t forgotten Millwall away, Bristol, Brum and QPR. Not trying to pour cold water on anything, we are clearly as every team in the land is better with their better players available. I am looking forward to a bit of luck on the injury front, we all know we have a decent squad with some up and coming youngsters just hope Jos is positive in his team selection, when the pressure is on come August.

    Reach At Left Wingback

    He can do everything but tackle.
  5. Im guessing Ipswich as it was on a Norwich forum
  6. Had a quick look on the Norwich forum to see what they thought about tomorrow’s match an a main topic was the below. Do we think that’s accurate? I expected Wolves, Sunderland to be higher.... Average weekly wage bill in the Championship Villa £25,566 Middlesboro £23,272 Derby £ 17,437 Norwich £15,616 Sheff Wed £15,226 Fulham £14,826 Wolves £14,453 Sunderland £14,310 Nottm Forest £12,068 Reading £11,005 Hull £10,918 Birmingham £10,707 Cardiff £10,220 Leeds £8,952 QPR £7,971 Binners £7,250 Bristol City £7,032 Brentford £6,913 Sheff Utd £6,268 Bolton £6,208 Burton £4,559 Preston £4,276 Millwall £4,017 Barnsley £3,882

    Jos is the man

    He’s not the type of character I would have chosen, this league is a scrap and as a manger I think you need a figure head with a bit of gumption. That said as one of his biggest critics if he’s got us challangeing after 10-15 games next season i’ll Jump on the bandwagon. We need some pace and physicality added this summer sprinkled with a bit of luck on the injury front and we / Jos will be in business

    Soft touch

    Physicality and Pace. We still need the 3-4 players since the play off final that we all highlighted. And we are struggling for leaders on the pitch, we’ve got no one who is in the refs ear from the first minute trying to gain small advantages for us, Marshalling the players, trying to rally the troops etc... Jos clearly isn’t doing it sat in the dugout for most of the game so we desperately need a couple of big characters.
  11. We need some fitness and form from our key players, then we will be competitive top 10 team next season, to take the next step and challenge we need 3-4 quality additions, just like we did after the play off final. Westwood Hunt. Lees. ????? ????? Hutch. Bannan Forestieri. Hooper. Reach Joao We need a dominant CB with Van Aken and Venancio as cover We need a Quality pacy LB who can defend and stop crosses We need a midfield beast for when Hutch breaks down A winger with pace and delivery, which we’ve needed for years the above backed up hopefully with a fit Lee, Fletcher, Nuhiu, Matais, Abdi, Pelupessy, Jones, Fox, Palmer will see us go close.
  12. It’s a damn sight more animated than sat on your backside with your arms folded....
  13. Com’on where did I say anything about flapping and screaming If you cannot agree that some calm instructions, guidance and support for your players at periods throughout a 90 minute game of football is of benefit then may as well leave it there.
  14. You are taking the complete other end of the spectrum view on purpose As a manager I would expect at the very least to be ‘managing his players from the technical area’ especially the younger ones. Even more so after some of the starts we’ve had in his tenure. That doesn’t mean ‘going mentalist’ it means managing your team, giving them direction, encouragement, correcting technical issues as they crop up in games, counter acting their tactics...the list is endless. Things happen in games from the first minute to the last, sat in the dug out with his arms folded for the majority of games is poor man management in my view.
  15. Not about waving his arms around....but I’d like to see a bit of direction in the technical area from him. Paul Sturrock was a dour personality yet he would talk to the players through the game, remind them of their tasks, correct positioning odd occasional rant etc etc. He’s been here months now and we’ve had some pretty horrific starts in matches that I would expect him to be right on the touch line even in a calm manner helping support his players. Also with brining in younger players into the first team, it’s his job to help manage them through games, can’t do that sat on his backside with his arms folded in the dugout.
