    Jordan Lonchar left

    You are correct in what you say. I thought he would get a better offer than he did which suggests that those in know suspected he was not as good as all goals indicated. However rules on agents pay last summer changed. Instead of getting all money up front when a player signed for a club in England it was to be spread over length of contract. This was to stop agents continually trying to move players on and cash in. However I believe in Europe agents still get all fee as soon as a player signs. Hence you see quite a few young players heading o the continent. If rules not harmonised expect trend to continue. I do think he has found himself in a place where he will not improve and if you stand a chance to be a footballer its a shame that you end up not being able to fulfil your potential whatever level that may be.

    The ones mentioned to me were, Shaw, Rice, Hammoud, Dawodu and Grant. I think that was all who were mentioned. Hagan is a first year and when I spoke to person he would have only just commenced first year. These are all second year Academy graduates and I were told they were all promising.

    He certainly showed intensity and energy which is required in todays football. I thought he would make it as a professional player but not at top level as did not have real pace.

    Hirst is no longer in match day squad for his team. Since Pearson was sacked he has not featured at all. In last game they had best result of season and are now off the bottom of league. The standard of Belgian second tear is about same as National League and his record of 2 goals in 18 games is not going to send scouts racing to see him. He is on 5 year contract and presumably it was at a decent level so unlikely many will want to offer similar terms. I think he has not been best advised and whatever talent he has or future in game are not best served by some of decisions made.

    Lonchar got injured in final year of Academy and has not been as prolific since his return. He has been on periphery of the u/23s most of this season. The leagues the u/18 and u/23s play in are not great and transition to first team is difficult. If you fail to shine at u/23 level no real chance at first team level. For some reason the Academy selected a lot of small players who do not have much scope for development and Lonchar was one of those. Its interesting that since Bruce arrival a youth recruitment specialist is in process of being recruited. I spoke to somebody at club at beginning of season and asked about young players and he mentioned several promising ones they had hopes for none were from the u/23 team (previously mentioned this on forum several months ago). This surprised me at time as I thought we had several promising players in the u/23s.

    U18s | v Crewe

    Really appreciate reply I saw your lad was on back row of team photo and as big lads usually placed in that line thought he was a bit bigger than average. In fact team are a bit taller than I thought. Pleased to hear he is in good hands and hope he is fit to resume training soon and delighted to hear contracts are in hand too.
  7. Yes and that's the problem midfield lacks energy. The stats which show speed sprints are also dreadful for us in we have few who have any pace. Some seem to chug around but do so at very slow pace and appear incapable of keeping it going for 90 minutes. I am sure SB will try to address this problem in summer if we are allowed to bring in players.

    Not good enough

    We need improvements in playing staff particularly in midfield until this happens we have to muddle through. The team battled and got a draw actually think its improvement. Daft mistake at back which we have not done for last few games it was though relief of scoring a goal and team just thought job done and after that we were chasing game. It will take time you can not turn it around in a couple of weeks. fans will have to realise some of players are not good enough, in they do not have consistency to be winners.

    U18s | v Crewe

    I have seen his photo on Wednesday site. He looks not to be messed with. I sincerely hope your lads problem is nothing too serious. A couple of questions re team. Are we a small side looking at team photograph we have a couple of giants or some of lads are quite small, can you give an idea on height of team? Do you know who is dealing with Academy contracts now CEO has left? I am aware a few things yet to be sorted.

    We need a Kieren Lee

    Clearly no idea on tactics or understanding of the game.

    We need a Kieren Lee

    By saying replace K lee with Livermore implies playing two defensive midfielders, you did not mention completely changing shape of team, or did this occur when you realised what you suggested would need further modifications to make it viable. We are playing well with back 4 and this will not change any time soon.

    We need a Kieren Lee

    You do not need more than 5 defenders. What you suggested would not be effective.

    We need a Kieren Lee

    they played 3 at back which is different system.

    We need a Kieren Lee

    You do not need two sitting midfield players, Livermore is defensive midfield player and does Hutch role. I think we need Kieran Lee and another quicker/high energy midfield player if we play 3 in midfield We are currently too slow at build ups and things breakdown too easy. Your comment about lightweight midfield was highlighted in we were slow to build up and it allowed large lumps to close down on Hutchinson and Lee in other words lack of pace in front of them It was easy to blame goalkeeper and defence when we were conceding lots of goals earlier in season but now we have settled shape, stopped messing about with ball at back and one proper defensive player in midfield team look altogether more secure. Therefore think problem with midfield is also to do with slow players in front of them. This also hinders creative players as less room to play and fewer options to pass the ball.
  15. The problems stems from midfield. We do not have players with energy and pace to do high press. Hutchinson is helping secure defence. The front five do not have enough goals in them. FF has not recovered goal touch yet he has been absent for a long time and will take a while. Reach has scored with some wonder strikes and will score a few goals but rest are well below what you need for a successful team at this level. Fletcher works very hard and play is good all round but a centre forward needs to score goals and his record says he does not. Joao or Winnall are only two who may be able to do this but think neither would be prolific. Bannan is a talented player, but just about impossible to fit into a successful team as finishing or pace are not what you need in formation we use. Think Bruce is having a look and if you have tight defence it is a good foundation to build upon. It will take time due to financial restrictions but feel we are in good hands.
