  1. I'm a massive fan of Fletcher but he's 33 Years old, will be wanting a two year deal, on decent wages still, we can't justify that, it was the right time to part ways with him, take our recruitment in a different direction and use his wages more effectively...
  2. I mean Weavs stepped up after Andy Rhodes left, so he's just returned to that position, i'm guessing Monk would've told him that's what will happen. Weavs is a local lad SWFC fan so will be happy to do so, would he want to move and find another team? doubt it. Same with Bullen, settled in the area, fell in love with the club slight demotion however can't see him grumbling either. Overall a very good move!
  3. Seeing him get torn a new one by Crewe under 23's was enough for me, should have stood out a mile and he did, he was shocking best of 200 centre backs they said
  4. think what people are saying is yes you might get some that doesn't hit it off but you only need 1/2 to hit it off and you've already made your money back that you spent if not made profit! We've signed big names on big wages and as you put it yourself: There's lots of other routes to look down, Lower leagues & abroad in the lower leagues of Germany France Italy etc... We need to change our mindset and look at other avenues because the recruitment has been shocking.
  5. See what your saying but If we're sticking with a three at the back ideally you want pace across it, no good having slow outside centre backs like Borner who at times will have to cover the wing areas
  6. Didn't Harris reply with this sort of message on Instagram the other day? Is this Garry's way of reconnecting with the fans as he spoke about
  7. Turned down prem teams to sign for Hearts didn't he #SeanFlair
  8. clutching at straws, that one moment didn't relegated them, their poor performances over 38 games relegated them.
  9. @mildatheart67 it was Otsemebor's podcast and it was him vs Reda Clinton Morrison threatened to shoot Jon Parkin
  10. Classic example of what i just mentioned about, so blinkered that he's had a shocking season it pains people to say he actually did well in the last couple of games. See what everyone else has said on Morgan Fox, basically took that much flak he's said F That im off.
  11. THIS! it's the exact attitude that has to change at our club, we have this sort of swagger about us when in reality we've done F all for 20 years. We used to talk about can the players play in front of a Hillsborough crowd like its some sort of bragging rights, reality is the up and coming youth don't have the character that they used to have and most will just crumble. Is it a coincidence Moses Odubajo has just had his best games in a Wednesday shirt with there not being a crowd? We write players off after 3 games, when in reality it takes time and we as a fanbas
  12. If he's cheap and it doesn't work out as we intend then who cares? We did it with Iorfa and come up trumps on that one, he's worth more than we paid! He may have a resale value if it doesn't work out probably and we can recoup the money but he will have a point to prove and i rather us sign players like that than spending megabucks on some 'been there and done it' kind of player who couldn't give two hoots. Sign more hungry players with a point to prove, avoid spending millions on players 26/27+ I find it interesting he's a central midfielder when our most promising t
  13. One of the main reasons is our fans, too many don't have the patience, we play someone for two games and there's already posts on all social media stating he's not good enough etc Look at Morgan Fox as a prime example, took that much flak he's off! Dom Iorfa, remember reading the reviews from Ipswich when we signed him they were poor reads, fans had already written him off, we've given him first team football in his natural position for a year and he's flourished, yes odd couple of mistakes here and there but that happens in football. We've got this attitude hanging over our club of
  14. Your not making 6 changes in a "must win game" and handing a debut out to a youngster, leaving experienced players out if you don't already know your fate
  15. Pelupessy got a contract extension of 1 year because he is cheap and who knows we might need bodies, no one really knows how this window might go when it opens again, we know he's not good enough to be in the starting 11 week in week out but it was a sensible option, likewise Lee he won't be on massive wages and would likely take a cut, He's a homebird, for the right contract he would stay regardless. People saying we will only get so many games out of him blah blah blah, like we did like with Forestieri, Hooper, Abdi etc? paying them a fortune while doing it, a cheap option in Lee who can sti
  16. Usual media drivel, he knows exactly who he wants to stay and leave
  17. But you've just said the Owner isn't willing to fund them with his own money?
  18. Exactly the mentality that needs to change at our club.
  19. That's what a sustainable club books looks like Owners just built a new stadium - We've sold ours to our owner to avoid FFP So little old Brentford ain't doing so bad
  20. But they don't have a academy, they only have a B team, so they save money in that department
  21. Can't blame Monk for absolutely everything as we all know, he's had his hands tied etc, HOWEVER i said in another thread changing tactics when we need to pick up points, going to a 3 at the back formation with 9 games or whatever remaining, risky risky stuff when we don't have the players to play that formation.
  22. You set a team up by what you have at your disposal, it doesn't matter what formation your going to play, your going to give up areas of the pitch either way and its no different with the 3-5-2, your conceding ground straight away on the wings and it won't work with the players we have currently. The 3 centre backs you need PACE! especially the LCB (Borner) and RCB (Palmer) if we are going with this formation next season we need to upgrade on these areas, the LCB and RCB need to be able to cover the wings as well as any on coming midfielders breaking the lines, Borner is a 4 at the
  23. Problem is we need results, it's not the time for giving a player on loan the time to get used to a formation or our playstyle. This 100%, establish a way forward with a formation/formations and buy players suited to them roles, problem what Carlos did, brought in a lot of good players in but tried to shoe-horn them into a formation.
