  1. Noticed that but maybe they have been told they need to defend as a priority and not hare forward then get caught out of position and as a result (if that is the case) Fox has looked a much more solid player, but still shows for the ball going forward
  2. Don't think you were at the same match as me. Hector played a couple of passes short which almost cost us but was class. Reach meanwhile was a patch on his normal self and couldn't stay on his feet
  3. As you rightly say, deserves credit for last season and for having the guts to blood the young 'uns but his tactics, exclusion of experience and his bizarre substitutions are inexcusable. It was as though he decided that in the future (next couple of seasons) the team will be built around the best of our current young players, and that may be so but we could easily have been relegated by him blindly sticking to that policy even though everyone could see it wasn't working.
  4. Agree 100% his crosses left a bit to be desired bat times but no way was goal his fault. Lees beaten in air and Hector turned all too easily.
  5. Wouldn't disagree with any of that mate. Summed up well.
  6. Except for the header 2 yards out he managed to duck under,
  7. Disagree. He had one of his better performances today and worked his arse off but at full back he was turned inside out several times and looked ineffective but blossomed when able to run oot from the back with it.
  8. Some people have favourite who can do no wrong, while others are villains and the same people are blind to whatever they do that's right. Reach was reasonable at left wing or wide mid-field in a poor side and when moved inside had a purple patch but for last half dozen games he has been largely ineffective, just drifting around the pitch and waving his arms at others but for some he's the blue eyed boy and hence brilliant. He can't or won't tackle, doesn't work back, can't jump and apart from one "worldy" goal his shooting has been abysmal. He's a talented player but must work much harder but he's automatic choice on team sheet and so doesn't have to try. Drop/Rest him for one game, then play him on left and let the old Adam Reach show himself and supply two in form strikers.
  9. I'm not a fan of Buttercup, but yesterday I though he had a much better game than usual.
  10. Some times people will only ever look at the negatives and be totally blind to everything else that doesn't fit their agenda. Yesterday Nuhiu was one of the few players to be a success. He won virtually every header and flick-on. He made several vital defensive headers, he held the ball up really well and he worked his butt off for 90 mins. But all you can focus on is one shot which the keeper didn't save it hit him. If that had been "blue-eyed-boy" Reach on his shooting last night, it might have cleared the stand. Remember his attempt that was nearer the corner flag than the goal? Reach can do no wrong yet he was largely ineffective last night, and Nuhiu will never ever be given the credit he deserves. Hell never be a prolific goal scorer, but for Christ sake open your eyes as well as your minds!
  11. Bang on mate. He even has the audacity to say we are a team devoid of confidence, well no sh!t Sherlock, but surely it is your job to either instil confidence or pick the players that still have some left. Palmer and Loovens were like rabbits in the headlights
  12. Wouldn't say crap, but he drifted in and out of game dropping too deep and just waving his arms to direct traffic. Some think he's the blue eyed boy but his shots and free-kicks were woeful and he can't get off the ground to head, but still better than Butterfield and Loovens was embarrassing, but with 2 central defenders on the bench why wasn't he pulled?
  13. If funds are tight and you need a defensive MF player, it has to be one you KNOW can do the job (ie one who has done it before in this league) not either one for the future or one who will do a job when he's had time to adjust to the division, like at the end of the season! Another waste of funds
  14. Agreed, he seemed to tighten at back and we steadily looked more confident and organised now ball seem like a hot spud everyone only too keen to get rid even if it drops someone else in the Kack. Confidence shot again and rapidly going backwards.
  15. For my money, it's true, but I don't know why. I asked the man himself how long he will be out his reply was "I'm fit mate but I can't play apparently" Make of it what you will
  16. Written after the event and I don't know if someone else picked it up but when our number of injuries was mentioned Lawrenson replied to the effect "but how many of them would get in their first team?" The injured are our first team you thrower. The original posting was right, NO research done what so ever. Does he appreciate that due to Jos having to rest/cotton-wool players and the cup-tied young 'uns this is almost our third team!
  17. Villa were never the better side and considering they were playing our second string and had the ref on board, they aught to have been out of sight. Yes we conceded 4 but three of those were through wrong decisions by that corrupt barsteward
  18. Or is it? Might be two of the cushion gone.
  19. From the way he raised his hand to Wildsmith, he was acknowledging blame, so I'm sure the keeper must have made some sort of call, but whether it was loud enough or commanding enough I can't say. However I don't think Venancio was in any trouble so no need for goalie to start coming out. Just one of those stupid mistakes, in a day full of stupid mistakes, not least of all from the officials
  20. Don't think Jos would drop him from squad voluntarily, especially with us being so thin in that department at the moment, so suspect it was Rhodes decision following possibly a failed move out of here, and then him declaring he wasn't in right frame of mind. You may get your answer next match as with Matias banned, there are few alternatives.
  21. Bang on pal. That is exactly the point of this survey. It doesn't have to be an either or question, but when very few (I hope) accept no investment no promotion, that means the majority have opted for higher prices, which is what they want so they can say "The fans voted for it". What the majority of us surely want is better wiser investment, where the right player can be brought in for the right price, that wants to play for the shirt not the money. The question is ridiculous, it is like asking "would you rather shoot your son or your daughter?" You wouldn't answer that, so don't answer this, it's what they are trying to get you to say that you should worry about. I don't even think that they want option 2!
  22. So its Atdhe's fault if Reach (who for some reason decided to sit on top of back line) and Matias can't get close enough to him. You just said he's too slow yet they can't support him? Don't follow your logic pal.
  23. Seen Matias incident again & doesn't appear much there. If ref had been on the case goalie would have been carded immediately when going on walkabout and Pudil wouldn't have had to chase his to wrestle the ball from him. Second one their player seemed to overhit it so wasn't in control, then run into Pudil. Sh!t ref, but we had already lost the game by then.
