  1. Subs didn't really work out yesterday, I believe the manager was trying to give Bannan and Kadeem a rest for the next few games, Murphy and Nuhiu didn't get in the game.
  2. He's level, the assistant called it because Fletcher was his side. In these situations the Striker should get the benefit of the doubt. These decisions plus VAR are just ruling out the most exciting parts of football, goals.
  3. Never minded him, always thought he was steady without being amazing. Had a very combative and solid performance today.
  4. Me too, get him back firing and he's the best in the division.
  5. He's onside, simples. Terrible decision from the assistant, again.
  6. Rock today, Mr Consistent, superb signing.
  7. A sweeper is a player that sweeps behind the defensive line, very rarely seen in modern football because the change in offside rule pretty much eliminates the need for one. I think you mean the anchor, an old fashioned term for the number 4 or CDM. Bannan is our most creative midfield player, every team tries to get their creative players in space so they can do some damage, why do you think Bannan drops deeper?? Bannan pretty much plays the 8, box to box but with the freedom to roam to find the space. If you have any other questions, give me a shout.
  8. Palmer's been pretty solid since Jos left, he was terrible under Jos. I don't rate Morgan Fox, he isn't a bad defender but he's too careless in possession. I also don't rate Nuhiu and don't think he's a top half Championship forward, however, he's awkward to play against and he's got a purpose/role in the squad. Kieran Lee is/was class, injuries have held him back. Adam Reach could be a quality footballer, he's got everything apart from aggression that is needed at the highest level. Tom Lees is one of the best CB's in the Championship. Not really sure where this is going but Bannan is seen as one of the best midfield players at this level, by people who know a bit more about football than Peacock on Owlstalk.
  9. Carlos, Jos, Bullen x2, Bruce and Monk have seen Bannan to be a very important part of our team/squad, maybe its you that's wrong.
  10. Luongo will come good, we have seen he is very capable but Hutch, Bannan and Lee are preferred at the moment, we need a squad and Luongo is a very good midfield back up.The Championship season is a long one, we need bodies and capable ones. We have lacked pace for years, since JJ, Antonio then Helan, this season we have it.
  11. We have a decent squad with good options, a comfortable win against a relegated premier team and a draw against another, yet we are looking for faults. We are in a good place, relax and let Monk have a go at it.
  12. This thread is hilarious, so many Championship managers. Have you heard yourselves?
  13. I wasn't sure about Iorfa at CB, he always looks a bit clumsy but he's been brilliant and he gives us more height and additional pace in the back 4. I think these discussions show how outstanding Borner's been, absolute rock. Borner is clearly an organiser and he's very intelligent, reads the game very well, then I can't believe how much pace our back 4 possesses with Palmer, Odubajo and Iorfa. There can't be many quicker back 4's in the FL.
  14. For me ......................Westwood Iorfa..........Lees..........Borner.........Palmer ............Hutchinson....Bannan Reach..................Lee.......................Harris .........................Fletcher Dawson, Odubajo, Bates, Luongo, Murphy, Forestieri, Rhodes. Fullback covered, CB covered, CM covered and attacking options.
  15. Did this thread happen in 1980? I think some of you wanting just to simply hit a long ball into a CF are not really interested in football. Now, don't get me wrong, there is a time and a place for that to happen but if that's all you have then give it up, if the CB bosses your CF then its game over and this shouldn't be happening in the Football League, leave that for poor grassroots teams, that approach needs zero skill or ability. This all started with the England set up, we were awful and something needed to change, we had very good players but why were we so poor? We weren't good enough in possession, because we weren't used to it, we had maybe 4/5 players who were ok, for the highest level every player needs to be comfortable on the ball, this is why we were so far behind the likes of Brazil, Spain, Germany, Portugal and so on. Early on under Southgate we were boring, we kept the football but had very little threat or creativity, recently we have looked better because we now have players used to having the ball and we have added players who are pacey and direct but still very good with the ball. Now, we aren't far off and all our younger age groups are doing well. English league teams having a philosophy of being good in possession while also being positive is indirectly supporting the England national team. We love football because its different every time, Man City are different to Liverpool but both successful, it's down to the coach and how he wants to play. But getting frustrated and angry because a defender keeps possession is just uneducated and needs to remain in the 80's. Ive heard it at Hillsborough and it's embarrassing.
