First point - are you on drugs???

 

Second point - what do you think today’s set up was??

First point.. do you go to games? His best performances have always been on the left side of a forward 3 or deeper out wide. Can’t remember too many games where he played alongside Hooper, Fletcher or Rhodes and was as effective

 

Today Rhodes came on for 20 mins.. it’s not long enough to judge him on. Would need half a dozen games playing like that before you could say its not working

So Bullen is saying FF wasn’t on the bench for tactical reasons. 

bullshit same reason as to why hutch and westwood got left out under jos. Most teams in our league would have had ff on the bench at least. Football is becoming a bullshit sport. He said she said answers now....

Agreed 

 

To have odabajo on the bench allows for back up for both full back positions as he can play either 

 

So having Fox on the bench was a debatable decision.

 

To not have FF but have Rhodes and Nuhiu is a huge call  - sadly I think it’s bitten him on the backside 

completely agree, ff would have been on every other teams bench at least when given the option.

Personally I would have had FF on the bench in front of many of the others. I'm not paid to make that decision whereas our current caretaker manager is.

 

FF can be a mardy so and so but I'd prefer him where he might do some damage rather than sat in the stands. 

 

If it was genuinely a tactical decision then I'm not convinced it was the correct one.

Neil Harris commented on Quest about us having Bannan on the bench and how that set the standard for us as an opponent.

 

Imagine when team sheets get exchanged they see Nando there as well (rather than Fox). 

 

Surely that would have them thinking, "shìte, if Forestieri can't get a game they must have some reyt bàstards in first 11".

 

Personally I think Bullen has made a bad error here, unless there's something gone on behind the scenes which he has played down.

Long term I prefer his honesty 

 

 

Oh me too. It's refreshing. 

But honesty doesn't get you far in this game. Especially these days when things get ultra analysed.

And even if you tell the truth people think you're lying.

 

I used to enjoy Pearsons honest appraisals. Then he rugby tackled that player and called someone an ostrich. Next thing he's been sent on a course and the following press conferences were as anodyne as the rest. Boring slogs whilst he took half and hour to carefully select each word so as not to say anything too quotable!

You can be honest without being a lunatic-not sure Pearson could though

CBA to catch up on five pages but it sounds like Bullen is reading the Danny Wilson school of management book.

No Fancy Dans here.

Who needs the league's best player when you're a goal down and have ten per season Fletcher and our one goal a month midfield hard at it giving it their all??..

To not at least have him as an option from the bench is insane

Fox being on the bench was stupid and a waste of a spot. We had Hutchinson and Iorfa in the squad who could cover CB if needed plus Reach and Odubajo to cover LB. 

 

I am not Forestieri's biggest fan but if available he should at least be on the bench as an option.

If FF was fit and not even on the bench then I am lost for words, esp with Fox & Nuhiu on the bench. Absolutely mental. Even Winnall  should be ahead of Fox n Nuhiu

Nuhiu on the bench while Fessi is sat at home twiddling his thumbs.... tactical master stroke there from Bully!!:ghoulguy:

Nando is probably low on confidence... I want a manager who is going to put his arm round these boys and blow smoke up ‘em for a while. Same with Rhodes.

 

These two should always be ahead of Nuhiu because in my opinion they are technically better footballers...

There’s nothing different he could’ve offered today. We opened them up so many times, just didn’t finish. 

 

He would have offered more than Rhodes

Got to laugh haven’t you. Bar that wonder goal at Norwich, FF has done next to nothing for a few years now 

 

I’d like to think after the recent signings, and although with still a place off the bench, that FF is somewhat yesterday’s man 

 

He’s proved in his time with us that he’s not up to it, on a consistent basis 

 

He hasn’t been available to be the main man he once was, some of that is his own fault. Injured also and then Jos dropped him after he had scored 2/3 goals at the start of last season.

 

But he’s still been a key goal scorer for us every season when he’s actually played.

A select few on here highlighted FF’s impact at this club, and the fact it’s a myth. 

 

Anyone got the stats on how many 90 minutes he has completed in the last 2 seasons?
