    Team for Swansea

    In the absence of Forestieri and also trying something new tactically I’d like to see Bannan given a try in the No 10 role. His shooting has been awful because he’s trying to score 30 yarders from his deep position. Let him try from in and around the box. So. Westwood Iorfa Lees Hector Lazaar Hutchinson Palmer Reach Aarons Bannan Joao/Fletcher. We’re going to need all the pace we can conjure up against Swansea, and why not put Palmer back in midfield where he made a very promising start a few years ago. If it looks wrong Brucie can change it at half time . Tin hat at the ready.
  2. By that reasoning the ref failed in his duty. All 10 outfield players plus the subs should have yellow cards. They were all off the field of play (but not in the crowd)

    Darren England

    Another incompetent to add to the list of Tim Robinson and Neil Swarbrick that we’ve had to put up with this last few seasons. The standard gets worse year on year so expect more.

    Not good enough

    Seems this squad just cannot handle teams that are battling for their survival. We are afraid to match the bottom teams and play in a constructive attacking manner. It’s been happening for the last two or three seasons. The majority of our players are second to every ball in a physical battle. I fear only wholesale change, especially in midfield will cure this. Not an easy prospect if under embargo.
  5. That’s not quite the problem. Fox puts very good crosses in from the left. He just doesn’t get into a position to do it more than once or twice per game. Palmer on the other flank, lately being a more willing runner, gets into position more often, but struggles to find a team mate with his cross.. However under the Bruce regimen the main job of a full back seems to be to to defend, hence the clean sheets. Crossing is becoming more the job of the midfielders. The ideal scenario for me would be for our wide attacking players, like Reach for instance, to keep switching wings. A full back suddenly facing a different type of player every few minutes down the flanks is unsettling for opposing defences.

    Bruce has a big juggling act to do with squad in the remaining games if he is to give everyone ,including Matias, the chance he promised when he arrived. There are only 15 games left this season There is a first team squad of 32 if the kids that Jos promoted are excluded. He is looks unlikely to drop the likes of Hector, Westwood, Hutchinson, Bannan, Reach and Forestieri. So with roughly 26 players to experiment with in the remaining games, it seems pretty clear some of them are only going to get a chance to prove themselves in training or U23 games. Matias probably has a better chance than Abdi, Jones, Van Aken, Winnall, Pudil, etc. but not much in reality.

    We need a Kieren Lee

    You’ re spot on about Abdi. Its been so long since he played I completely forgot about him.

    Hector & Thorniley...

    I think most of the talk on here is about competence in the Championship. I don’t see any references to our right foot/left foot combination in defence being world beaters.

    We need a Kieren Lee

    I think Onomah was meant to be the man to do that. Pity he got the Wednesday injury problem as soon as he got into the team.

    Hector & Thorniley...

    In spite of the result I thought Thorniley was excellent against Chelsea who are pretty good as an attacking unit.

    What the f*ck was that?

    It’s worrying though that although we seemed to be battling we were still coming out second best in most 1 on 1 situations. Yes we had more more possession but really the fact we had only 2 shots on target against a poor Milwall side reinforces the claim Bruce made that there is a lot of work to do.

    45 minutes

    Had a good look at a good few these last 3 games. Time to ring the changes Brucie. You did say all of the squad would get a chance. Bring in in the 3 new boys for a start.

    What the f*ck was that?

    Just imagine the abuse heading Jos’s way after a game like that.

    Tin hat on again ....but best attacking performances towards the end of last season came with Joao, Nuhiu and Forestieri all playing together. Bruce seems to want to build a defensive shield in a 4-2-3-1 formation so hard to see that happening.
  15. Well after tonight’s performance he should be given a try. Nobody looked like scoring.....on either side
