    Good job you are not swfc manager. Tom Lees is 1 player and a team has 11 players. This would normally be a patronising reply for anyone else but unfortunately I feel this probably is not patronising enough for you. The logic of a player being poor solely on your perceived over rating is nonsensical. Maybe if you don't over rate him perhaps Hectpr may not seem as poor in your eyes. The post is a bad topic backed up poorly without any fact or evidence supporting OP 'point'.

    Anyone who questions JL decisions after the complete reversal of fortunes in a remarkably short period without spending money creating a team from CC mess in my book is a numpty. People should be raving about our young keepers who have displaced KW in the team. What ever the reason is for JL decision regarding KW he has done it for the best interest of the team to achieve results. Not all of his decisions will be understood by everyone. The very simple fact of the matter is that our keeper is now Dawson and people should move on and accept it then back the young guy and support him because he is playing for our beloved team. If Dawson was a liability and has cost us points then I could perhaps understand some of the negative comments, but the fact is that he has done very little wrong and has made much fewer mistakes than more experienced outfield players. This makes it all the more mystifying that not everyone is excited by our young prospect and understand that he still has parts of his game to improve that experience and confidence will complete the learning curve. Our manager and young players are a revelation, typical some fans just can't see it or get excited about the prospects we have currently. Numpty OUT !

    You must be watching him train everyday to know that. My half an idea tells me last 20 games I saw KW play he looked a shadow of his former self. If he was only halfd as good now as you think he is he would be in the team. Take your half an idea and shove it where it don't shine cus I fed up of talking to numpties like you. Ridiculous is thinking there is any warrant in playing an out of form unfit 33 year old in front of a young tenacious goal keeper from your own youth policy. Why dont you go on and tell Jos how bloody good he was and let him laugh at your rose tinted glasses and be thankful for what you got. Another ridiculous point is that KW is only second to the england international keeper in this league. ha ha ha ha ha, that will be Dawson then.

    Age affects every one differently. Just look at his number of appearances and how it has declined over last 5 seasons due to injuries. I think people prefer conspiracy theories more than fact. Fact is the manager picks who he thinks is the best. I happen to agree. What gets to me is people can't accept JL decision and pick points off Dawson to try and back up silly theories they imagine.

    what does the club have to gain playing KW at under 23. Nothing. Its better to give young up and coming players the experience. Thats why its called the under 23.

    Thats in the past. Its his form now that counts. Why so difficult to understand that age has caught up with him. From what I saw of KW last season he playing in about the right standard

    Yes it is. Its totally to do with his current ability. Jos has made it clear that he pays no attention to all the other rubbish and he plays who he thinks is the best player for each position on current form and fitness. KW is a good goal keeper but at this stage in his career Dawson and Wildsmith are better. In my lifetime I rate 1 Pressman, 2 Hodge, 3 Woods, 4 Turner, 5 Westwood. Dawson and Wildsmith have the ability and youth to be a much better keeper than KW ever was for us

    Sad but true. Its getting really frustrating reading another post from somebody judging games on performances of players 3 or 4 seasons ago. Move on. KW not the player he was. If he was he would be picked. The fact we have a great young replacement and some just want to slate him really shows the sanity of some people on social media. The internet gives everyone a voice even the numpties you would never normally pay any attention to.

    Totally agree !! Just said the same in the other westwood thread. dewsburyowl thinks players confidence is not affected by the certain moaning element we have. If KW was in his prime like 3 seasons ago he might be playing but he is not. The fact that certain fans still harping about KW when we have 2 great young and improving youngsters playing well and backed by the stats is typical of the negative element we unfortunately have. I still amazed that people think this wont affect the players confidence.

    Dawson

    He must notice the groans when a punch or clearance dosn't come off. Dawsons ability is blatantly obvious to most people. Obviously not you. At least i not making the assumption that I know better than the manager does. An assumption you make. Try understanding this as its so difficult as you state. KW IS NOT PLAYING AS THE MANAGER THINKS WE HAVE BETTER GOAL KEEPERS THAN HIM. Can you understand that I don't care. Try backing the young goal keeper who is part of the future of the club. I will assume you would rather go back to last season when if KW was fit to play his form was poor. So carry on moaning while the rest of us support the managers choices and the players he chooses.
  12. I like all these threads that look into stats and show trends from previous seasons to hopefully apply to this season and predict roughly what we can expect. Most teams who manage promotion have a much simpler philosophy. JL is known to be good at getting promotion in Germany. Neil Warnock is perhaps Englands equivalent at having an exceptional record of achieving promotion with his teams. I believe the trick is to not lose at home and at least draw (win as many as possible). Away games pick up points when and where possible. JL wanting us to be unpredictable and have players able to play in numerous different positions and formations is am indicator how his tactics change from home and away games. I have lost count how many times in away games the first half is very dour, I think this is a ploy to take the atmosphere away from the fans. 2nd half we change and take teams by surprise. It may be luck, but I think it happens to often to be just chance and this is a ploy JL uses.

    Dawson

    Dawson has the ability to be the best keeper in the division which for a 23 year old in 1st full season is fantastic for swfc. Unfortunately because certain fans think K\W should still be our No.1 Dawson gets slated for minor mistakes or errors. His confidence is not as high as it should be and this is his only real issue and the sad thing about this is its the negative K\W fans who have caused it. So for the people who still think KW is our best keeper - Jos decides who is our best players. Jos plays who he thinks is match fit and show desire every day to keep the place in the team. If KW was showing Jos the commitment to be our N0.1 he would be in the 1st team. Kw can;t be doing things in training better than CD. If KW was he would be picked. Why is that so difficult to understand. I get the impression KW fans would rather see him in goal no matter if he deserves to be No.1 or not. What would that do for JL ethic of no favourites policy. ????

    Absolutely !!! Our young players are adapting remarkably well and quickly. Dawson is already showing to be 1 of best keepers in the division and goal keeping a position that players peak at a much higher age than outfield players yet he been getting stick. I glad he not genuinely been poor as I would hate to see what stick he would get then. Totally unfair. come on wednesdayites lets back our players specially the young ones as confidence is key to performance.

    light years away - really. Its obvious with the amount of young players we are naive. I find it very positive that we have the quality to beat every team in this division. For 80 mins against west brom we could have been 3 or 4 goals up. Nobody can doubt that the players have the the ability to learn how to hold on to a lead and play for 90 mins. The amount of talent the team and individuals have it wont take them long to learn whats required to do whats needed to hold on to a lead. Certainly not light years away !!
