  1. It's been totally deserved from what I'd seen of him. But he's got his arse in gear whether thats down to Monk, and sounds like he's been much better recently so well done to him. But fans absolutely in their right to critisise the effort he showed earlier in season. Monk left him out after that bad spell, and since he's come back in he's been far better. So I give credit to Monk too, clearly has said some things and maybe has a better plan to use him now.
  2. Been chalk and cheese last 2 games compared to those before it. Was getting sick of his limp, lethargic performances before then. Something must have changed, but I haven't seen either game so no idea what it is. What the heck has changed? Finally finding a system to fit him or has he realised he needs to put a shift in or he'll be sent back? Playing better teams seems to be helping him, maybe as it's less of a physical battle. You'd never have thought he'd be keeping Harris out the team, but deserves it on the last 2 games.
  3. Did it not make Bannan play too deep though with Hutch not around? Just curious, haven't seen any of last 2 games.
  4. Love a few of the tackles he put in. Unit! Powers past players in those U23 sides also. Looking forward to seeing him in action, it's his shirt to lose now. Seems a very humble, likeable lad too from the interview last week. Really hope he does well here.
  5. His fitness will seem questionable when going from playing U23's to Brighton then Leeds suddenly. He looks a unit, power and pace reminds me of our Dom. Long way to go but he has the physical attributes, time to give him a good run as we know Palmer is average for this level. I have no clue why Dons would let him go though, or not resign him. Unless he didn't want to stay, which would be fair enough.
  6. No one commenting about Murphy? Been chalk and cheese last 2 games compared to those before it. Something must have changed, but I haven't seen either game so no idea what it is.
  7. Despite the formation though we still didn't have a proper ball winner in there. I agree the formation was right, but I was shocked to see no Hutch especially vs Leeds. But it clearly worked, so was just wondering how.
  8. Fantastic result, what suprised me most is the midfield. How is this midfield working without Hutch/Pessy in there as an enforcer? Especially today of all days you'd think we'd need Hutch, yet we didn't so Monk got it bang on. Was well suprised when Pessy came on 2nd half over Hutch too for the DM job. Bannan playing the deeper role, but who's making the tackles in there? Aren't they all too samey? I always thought Hutch's work rate was vital to us in there but these last 2 matches are proving that idea wrong. And covering the wingers also, Murphy has royally pissed me off when I've seen him this season, poor attitude and was wanting rid in Jan. But Brighton and today sounded like he was fantastic, what the heck has changed? Finally fitting into the system or has he realised he needs to put a shift in or he'll be sent back? Playing better teams seems to be helping him, maybe as it's less of a physical battle. You'd never have thought he'd be keeping Harris out the team, but deserves it on the last 2 games.
  9. Agreed. I've never slagged him, can never fault his attitude he makes the best of what he has. Great attitude like you say, he plays for the team not himself. And his fitness record puts the rest of our strikers to shame. Very handy squad player to have around. And is on pittance compared to the big earners, and once again never seems to complain about it.
  10. Did anyone expect anything from him?? Being released from Wimbledon didn't exactly look promising. So how hes took to it like a duck to water is incredible. Playing vs Brighton then Leeds and has been superb. What a start, I'm still stunned but maybe he really is a diamond in the rough. The RB is there for him to take and run with it.
  11. Agree, I'm sure he was often played at wing back for Hull under Bruce, not full back. Bruce played 3-5-2 a lot with them which left Robertson and Oddjob free to power up the flanks, with a bit less defensive responsibility. Though I still expected him to be better defensively than he's shown for us, he isn't a winger after all. Unless we use wing backs which we shouldn't with our current wingers, then I don't see him being more than a backup currently. Clearly not trusted to play full back and rightly so after all his pens conceded already. Maybe Monk can improve him, if not then I'd be happy to sell him.
  12. Martinelli's the one I'd want from Gooners. You'd think they'd want him to get a half season playing regular competive football. Looks a real talent, he'd score a load in this division.
  13. Has Monk been pressed for an answer why we wont be signing anyone? It just seems crazy, this is our opportunity to strengthen.
  14. Christ they left in droves! You'd think how well they're doing that they'd have a bit of faith. Some loyal fans those tricky trees.
