  1. Sympathy. What rubbish. The guy deserved an extension. The qualities he has is so lacking in the team currently. Lee is the player who we need fit and playing with confidence more than anything. Monk will be changing his team now after he rightly gave them a chance to put right the Stoke catastrophe. The first 15 mins against Cardiff has proved that he needs to rethink what the team is missing. We definitely light in full backs. We have no pace at centre forward with or without Fletcher playing. Iorfa and palmer dip in form has been alarmingly obvious. Fortunately borner is a capable replacement. Iorfa at right back is probably the best plan b while his confidence and form is poor. We will all be very surprised if the team against hull is the same that started against Cardiff. Lee is our secret weapon for the 2nd half of the season.
  2. His knee has not been right since he played when he was suffering pain under cc. He eventually had it operated on and still it is not right. Its harsh to slag him when the injury is from playing when we needed him for the play offs. I am sure his frustration at his form and pain is why his attitude is being questioned. Control of his emotions and temper has never been his best attribute. Fact is ff will not ever be a squad player. He needs to be fully fit and confident to play his best. He is neither and has not been for a long time. Its time for swfc to be ruthless. The club and results are paramount. He is worth very little but his wages will be better spent on someone else. January he will be on his way. Probably for free. Westwood too. With the wages savings we can get 4 players who can contribute to a promotion push. I think monk is wisely getting Rhodes price up by playing him for money he's earmarked on a quick striker.
  3. Who wasn't on the pitch for last 2 goals. Another thread is pulling monk for taking off our tallest player against a very tall Stoke team. Nobody played well enough at Stoke. But yet again atdhe is the easy target. When teams don't play well the forwards always look the worst as they chasing shadows with no service. We had 2 corners the whole game. Thats not down to 1 or 2 players. Its the whole team who played poorly. Atdhe has a place at swfc. Lots of managers have agreed. If there is any better then they would be picked. Fox now playing to well for the moaners to pick on. I dont know why some people bother watching swfc. Is it only to pick out the easy targets for abuse
  4. Its so good to have the option of either player. Managing to maximise there form and energy is key to getting the most out them both. Hutch is not ever going to be an ever present. The work rate of both is great. Being sensible with hutch is a priority to keep him available for selection
  5. Bannan takes a good corner. The set piece routines are very rarely poor due to bannans corner or accuracy. The movement in an around the box is what creates space for players. It would help if we had other options though. More the merrier. The routine which Palmer is left free for a volley might be more productive with Bannan on the receiving end.
  6. Its funny how many players improve when new deals or transfers are rumoured
  7. Iorfa type meaning young fast and good. Not necessarily a defender just players of his pedigree
  8. 20 points out of the next 10 games and we will be right up there. 15 points will probably see us around 8th but still in with a shout of play offs. Anything below 15 and we going to need to have a amazing last third of season to be up there. If i was chansiri i would be doing everything possible to get up this season and delay the ffp trial until end of the season. With the trial and the fact that we are good enough with no other teams really outstanding. This is the perfect opportunity for us to come good.
  9. Chansiri needs to think that whats done is done. Its likely to be minimum of an embargo as punishment. Therefore all players who are out of contract at the end of the season and are wanted by swfc to stay need to put pen to paper. The players likely to leave or not wanted need replacing before any embargo. Then we need 2 or 3 good young iorfa type finds. If we can get a couple of loan options as well to cover the positions we would be left light. Without Harris we dont have a like for like replacement. His position is very important for us. Forest game a prime example of how we can play with good quality crosses and passes into the box for Fletcher and Rhodes. I think we seen the best of ff. Might be time to sell. Although we wont get much for him. I don't think he the same player of 3 or 4 seasons ago. Hate to say it but i think it's probably time.
  10. 2 players who i hated to see us playing against roy keane and jon fashanu. Keane was hard as nails. Fash was a total conman. But always got away with it.
  11. Cantona has not got a mention yet. He always totally bossed the middle without breaking sweat. Never lost the ball. Seemed to always be in the right place. Owen, linaker and Klinsmann also good for all different reasons. Best dribbler ever is chris waddle. Glen Hoddle in his prime was a brilliant passer and amazingly accurate. Most skilled player was paulo dicanio. Robbie fowler best finisher. Neville southall had a few amazing games at Hillsborough and probably made the best save i ever seen. Stan collymore for forest had a superb game at Hillsborough i seem to remember. Alan hansen is probably best defender i seen. Mark lawrenson was some player to. Liverpool in 80 early 90s was a team full of fantastic players. It was virtually guaranteed that you would see some good football when we played them.
  12. I reckon this needs to be settled by atdhe attempting to do more kick ups than you get neg votes on this nonsense post alone. Thats going to be a lot more than 20 and still counting. If he beats your massive amount of neg votes i think a apology for atdhe should be posted on ot. Then atdhe should start a topic about your previous posts on ot. Then express his opinions on you and your limited football knowledge. Then what about being absolutely fair you attempt to match oin kick ups the number of up votes he gets for his post. I really hope he takes you up on this challenge. Maybe a comprehensive loss on your part will give us all a break from garbage opinions and posts like this topic in the future. I and others would love to see you proven wrong.
  13. Iorfa is superb. Definitely 1 for the future. Can't believe Kyle walker was this good at stain in his debut seasons. Iorfa lightening quick and just keeps getting better and better. Can't fault his work rate and attitude. He gets stuck in even when other players are not. If maguire can play for England then iorfa has a really good chance. We will need to be promoted soon to keep him. Hopefully we will be able cash in if we cannot keep hold of him
