  1. His positioning is terrible and he flaps at everything because he refuses to move from his line a header from nearly the edge of the box can beat him where most other keepers would just pick it up or at worst push it round the post , the slightest deflection leaves him nowhere and qpr are able to cross the ball from distance into our six yard box to cause chaos where any capable keeper would just take a step forward and take the ball. he’s not at fault for the fourth however watch any other capable keeper in the same situation their sprinting of the the line to close t
  2. We were overrun in midfield because their “free” defender in the back 3 stepped into the midfield and carried the ball drawing a midfielder leaving it 2 on 3 in the middle out free defender is Tom lees who didn’t and never does this
  3. A lot of lower league teams scrapped their academies around 5 years ago due to the rule change that was introduced this basically allowed premier league teams to come in and sign their good youngsters for peanuts I believe the figure was something like 150k max for any academy players brentford made the decision at the time that it made financial sense to just sign players a little older and work from there which they’ve done very successfully many others have failed miserably. theres currently around 35 academies operating which means over half the teams in the footba
  4. No Waldock looked decent for half an hour then faded badly the two at the back where overly tentative and constantly out of position leaving massive holes throughout the game and the sole blame for this seems to be being put on borner because he’s older not saying there might not be something there but right here right now their not taking anybody’s place in the first team and need to be loaned out however due to the lack of squad depth they can’t be deli on the other hand looks to be a great signing strong athletic and bursts forward with the ball at hi
  5. If you watch his positioning when screening the defence he stops the ball coming into dangerous areas simply by occupying the correct space I’ve never seen a stat that says times forced opposition attack backwards by being in the right space
  6. Luongo is a very good player criminally underrated by some he does a lot of work that isn’t picked up by the stats or score worldies so doesn’t stand out he’s often the player sat blocking a pass and taking up a position that causes the opposition to have to pass the ball back twenty yards we as a fan base seem to prefer someone who runs round diving into challenges when in reality the only reason you need to leave your feet is if your in the wrong position To begin with and are trying to make up for it Paulo Maldini “if i have to make a tackle I’ve alr
  7. I’m not arguing the fact he’s a decent championship left midfielder. my point is he’s terrible in any other position and the current suggestions around reach seem to be to just find him a spot whether he can play it or not. what the stats don’t show is the number of poor passes and weak tackles he’s put in whilst playing cm that allowed an opposition to break creating chances or that at left wing back he’s not defensively aware enough or quick enough to make up when he makes a mistake. if we go into the new season playing the wingback system he becomes obselete in tha
  8. it’s quite easy to make certain players look good if you use their career stats they make Giles de bilde look like a world beater. most of his out of position games came early on in his career Whilst on loan in lower divisions hes utterly woeful here unless played on the left in a four man midfield. he falls into the same category as forestieri because of the one really good season we seem to forget he’s been terrible for the other 3 seasons and everyone wants to live in hope that he can get that form back for some reason we seem to want to shoe horn players
  9. Why is it everyone wants young players that hopefully have massive resale value but when it sounds like we’re after someone like that they’re not good enough. da Cruz wasn’t amazing last year no worse then anyone else tbf ,however he’s at the age all it takes is one good season and with the attributes he has he’s worth 15m+ the other suggestion seems to be get someone from the lower divisions who’s scored a few. the fact these players are now 3m plus rules us out by the looks of it the days of robbing lower league teams hot prospects for 20p and a bag of quavers are long g
  10. an accusation based purely on where he’s from Your not from round here you must be sneaky with 0 evidence to support this otherwise there’re be no need to mention the country of his birth
  11. And it appears their response to this is we didn’t look at it properly because were off on our jollies or have I misunderstood that ? if you used that defence in any court in the land you’d be laughed out
  12. my sentences are like our goalkeepers sloppy , unpredictable and all over the place
  13. Westwood appears to have become the new heffernan bringing him back won’t solve all if any of the problems we seem to think if he comes back he’ll automatically be the player he was 3 seasons ago however if he’s not going to play we desperately need to bring in an experienced first choice keeper goalkeepers are very different to outfield players only the truly exceptional ones ever hit there stride before their late 20s both Dawson and wildsmith have enough good qualities to justify keeping them around to try and work on the gaps In their games but at this level those gaps cost go
  14. Fletcher will always be massively underrated by many on here mainly because he wasn’t all fancy flicks and tricks I’ve actually seen some criticism on here blaming him for our goalkeepers choosing to aim goal kicks at him with him being one of the best headers of the ball in the league strange tactic that rather then letting Tom lees try and play out from the back he’s been one of the few that hasn’t gone missing over the last few seasons there’s been a lot of talk about the mentality of the squad been weak but people will slate the guy who’d quite happily get his fac
  15. Played 25 won 4 drawn 8 lost 13 you’d think it was monks record but it’s paul cooks up to the turn of the year a record like that here wouldnt allow him to become the current flavour of the week He’d have been long hounded out his stock has risen because they’ve managed to pull a few results out under difficult circumstances at a time when half the league aren’t playing for much and a good number of players are more concerned about not getting injured but let’s go all out to get the current hard done to media darling because that worked so well last time when we brought in so
