1. Fine you think every team in the league has ambition to be champions.

 

2. In your initial response to me say we were dreadful to watch you said I can't have seen us much over the last 2 years but now you are saying it doesn't matter. Make your mind up.

 

3. You are quick to point out how much Villa have spent but turn a bind eye to the fact Huddersfield have spent a pittance.

 

4. You said Westwood, Lee and Lees were the Grey signings but what about Loovens and Hutchinson (and big Dave for that matter who is unbelievably still getting game time)

 

5. Tactical masterclass? It was horrendous and we lost. 

 

We have signed around 20 players in the last 2 years. How many of those have been a massive success?

Do you think Huddersfield paid Bradford £9 million for Nahki Wells? lol

 

 

 

 

They bought him with the Rhodes money. If it wasn't 9 it might have been 8

I wonder if anyone at the club (CC included) realised when the team sheet went up that (apart from the enforced Fletcher for Hooper) it was the same team that played at Wembley last season? Surely there would have been some raised eyebrows amongst the backroom staff? What did Chansiri think about it I wonder?? Did HE realise?

He's hardly ever played a set formation...

I agree that the formation switches at times during ganes to 3-5-2 when attacking .

It is a solid 4-4-2 with 2 banks of 4 when defending which has been most of wof the time this season.

The only time I saw that change was v Rotherham 

 

As Wagner said 'the way they play doesn't change'.

Doesent feel like progress tbh we are still in the same boat as last year except we capitulated a game early this time around ,where's the progress in that scenario ,as of now

we are level on points with the rest of the league and stariting at the bottom ,

The bottom line is that we weren't good enough.  The squad needs consolidating by getting rid of those who haven't featured (we all know who they are).  This would leave sufficient budget available for a few (probably 4 or 5) key signings, in the positions we all know need to be strengthened.

 

For me the Huddersfield games in the play-offs were a microcosm of the entire season.  We flattered to deceive and over the two games, even though Huddersfield, over the season struggled to score, they looked far more creative and aggressive in midfield, knew how to stifle our game and albeit it ended up being the penalty lottery, I thought they looked stronger and fresher throughout most of the extra time period.  Of course with typical German efficiency, they won the shoot out.

 

If Carlos stays, he needs to come up with a plan A and a Plan B (one that doesn't involve a last resort substitution of Big Dave)!  Proper wingers playing on the correct side so they can cross from the by-line, a box to box midfielder in the Carlton Palmer mould and proper service for whoever plays in the front two.

Which Carlos addressed from the first season so give him a chance to adjust from this season's leanings...

He addressed nothing. We have wasted a season with shocking recruitment with minimal improvement. His substitutions are bizarre and he seems to find it difficult to drop his favourites.

We should look at our last two end of season results which was a play-off final and a play off-semi final. People are moaning because it was expected that we'd progress to a position where we can achieve that extra step which would lead to our promotion. Finishing in any position within the playoffs is meaningless due to the nature of how it works - 6th can beat 3rd despite the points difference..Spending tonnes of money to end up in what is ultimately the same position of ending up in the play offs despite the team we lost to spending far less won't make people feel better. We can't just pointlessly bring up the results of the past to ridicule those who aren't happy with the end result. It's just ridiculous when we can bring up any past position in an attempt to claim that people can't criticise SWFC. "Oh we spent tonnes of money and finished 2 places higher without actually progressing our style of play and playing those who were meant to improve us? Better bring up the fact Alan Irvine was poor and Dave Jones didn't improve our league position."

Here it is again... 'The other 3 teams in the play offs' - What of it? 3 of the teams this season achieved more points this season than the teams in the play offs did last season. It was far more difficult this year than it was last year.

 

Judge it on a teams performance over the 46 game season, not their team name or what they've done in the last 10 years. The teams were there on merit and more so than last season. 

So its acceptable a team like Huddersfield with a budget not dissimilar to Rotherham and made up of loan players should play us off the field.

Like I said how bad is that, they also finished on -2 goal difference.

Thread ender if ever I saw one. I would hope even the most hardened clapper couldn't really find anything in this post worth arguing against.

You think it's bad that we got 81 points?
