  1. We are in every game, we have brushed aside the weaker teams and lost by fine margins against the top teams. There isn't a lot wrong on the pitch at Wednesday, we need consistency and a bit of change in luck.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Never minded him, always thought he was steady without being amazing. Had a very combative and solid performance today.
  5. Me too, get him back firing and he's the best in the division.
  6. He's onside, simples. Terrible decision from the assistant, again.
  7. Rock today, Mr Consistent, superb signing.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. This thread is hilarious, so many Championship managers. Have you heard yourselves?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Fox aint a bad defender just proper dogger on the ball. Its a 4-2-3-1, Reach, Harris and Murphy attacking mids, FF with be the fresh legs. Rhodes and Winnall on the bench allows us to go with a front 2 without beasting Fletch, its called flexibility. Nuhiu is awful.
  18. I can't see us coming up against a more energetic midfield, also our fullbacks are full of running. We have a chance this season if we can keep this tempo up, loving it.
  19. Not many Championship players in there, proves my point.
  20. Game management is not putting on the only player in your squad who is adverse to defending. Putting Joey on worked, we saw the game out, we kept a clean sheet. I think Nando is like that 10 year old who wants to score the most goals and be the main man, it worked under CC because FF was clearly our best player. FF demanding to play up top is a problem, also Harris is a problem. At the moment we have better.
  21. They have got a League One squad, they survive year on year because of their mindset. If they stick Matt Smith up top and throw crosses in to him from everywhere they will get a few chances. I would like to think we have too much quality for them on the day, we do need to match them physically though.
  22. This is good to read, he's been going about his business a bit under the radar and not really getting any recognition. His hard work and quality was always there, he's now got a bit of support. Lee, Reach, Harris, Murphy are desperate to get alongside him, FF will do the same.
  23. Never read so much nonsense in my life, have a word.
  24. We might not get told off about finances but playing a 4-4-3 will eventually get us in trouble.
