  1. Seems like a bit of banter tbh, no surprises in Chansiri meddling 🤣
  2. Mark Robins the perfect fit for me, but why leave a club he has no real pressure at?
  3. said few years ago he is an egomaniac, money doesnt matter to him, adulation does. The fans staying away hurts him more than the lost coin
  4. Would agree with the op, in fact attack wise our plan used to be to have the wide players hug the touchlines and the mid partner of bannan (or whoever chosen, hopefully Luongo) to gain adequate space to do so. This is in order for the counter diagonal wing attacks to happen, who then cut inside more often than not and influence the game. For that to be less than predictable it needs a target man or link player with a goal/aerial threat. So it was effectively a 50/50 choice for opposition which meant this was sucessful before. The downside was when we are at home the onus is on us to control so this I think was why we were so prolific away upto and including the Brighton FA cup game. Fletcher was perfect foil because of his strength, intelligence, aerial threat, ball retention and all round link up play. Tonight though, it was difficult to see the patterns or attacking intent in the 1st half, I did feel the intent was to be more patient but it was the wrong call, he needed strength and ball retentionn as a means to stop the high frequency of turnovers in our attacking phase. Nuhiu was maybe the best option for this as with Harris and Murphy outside to support. He got it horribly wrong 1st half. The main issue going forwards? The downside is our main cb (Lees) and both goalkeepers cant pass accurately through a low to moderate amount of pressing with reliability at all. I think this is why Bannan has to sit so deep and be protected by his partner, in order to execute the attack with any real purpose. For me, Borner or Hutchinson is much more reliable with this as is Iorfa so should start, in order to get Bannan a higher starting postion in order to dictate play 5 yards futher forward or so. It is because of Lees (as good as his defensive work is) the team in a defensive phase has to adjust its set up a lot in order to reduce the risk of losing possesion or exposing the final 3rd too frequently.
  5. This reminds me about what SB said at the end of last season, saying it will take a number of windows to fix and compete. I just think Monk made the error of a public condemnation of unnamed players which seems to have destroyed the unity SB brought in and any real authority he may have had before. Jos did the same but the key difference now is that they will be gone soon.
  6. Agree, looks despondent with ideas and bereft of self belief. Needs his own staff in and a clear out or booting now before the fans completely turn away. Toxic
  7. Thought some royalty liked Villa? Maybe the op got his club mixed up
  8. This is superb to see, it’s a step in the right direction for the club and the university. Well done SWFC
  9. Setting up to the occasion, not many teams our level have this adaptability
  10. and I hope the manager and the boys keep this going, love it, screw the efl
  11. take my hat off to him, I hope this is the revival of Rhodes, be like a cracking new signng. Some treble
  12. 10 points and a good old scrap. Never boring being an owl
  13. isnt Penney out of contract at the end of the season? not sure tbh
  14. absolute clickbait, as it should be. Hes found really well, we should all get behind him
