I felt like some people couldn’t wait for Reach to make a mistake tonight

Recommended Posts

He's a consistent 6/7 out of 10 every game.

 

We need a few 9/10's from him.

 

That's the only issue.

We are obviously playing to quite a rigid defensive system and Reach is playing well in this system.

 

We saw when FF came on some glimpse of his quality, few tricks and runs, but for a defensive unit over 90 mins he hasn't got he discipline

to replace Reach,  so for people wanting him to replace Reach it won't happen.

 

He just needs to get that goal again - hopefully a repeat of his Leeds screamer next weekend.

Apart from a couple of sloppy passes/ bad choices I thought Reach was excellent 

 

He was everywhere and often put in a last ditch tackle put in 110%

 

Just because he hasn’t scored a screamer  for a while doesn’t mean he’s playing poorly, yes he could do a bit better especially with his final ball but he is still a first name on the team sheet for me

Best game for a long time last night I thought. 

 

Did enough to be an attacking threat against a solid outfit and while others were losing their brains, he had a cool head at the right times with sensible runs, passes and overall decisions 

Exactly

Yep I'd  replace him for someone as good as knockaert as well .....if we can get someone like abrahams on loan I'd have fletch out also


Nice Sarcasm, Knockaert is on loan to a 10th place championship club. It’s a well known fact that in January the best PL players are loaned to sides in the top 6 of the championship who are battling promotion. If we are still third in January I’d hope we could attract a decent loan player. Maybe have to sell the likes of Winnall or Rhodes to fund the wages but it’s not impossible. Your comment to sign Abraham’s isn’t funny or realistic, so a bit pointless really

I think he has been playing poorly in terms of lack of involvement and seemed happy to pass on any responsibility or have any attacking intent 

 

Last night he had all those qualities in his game in my opinion 

 

It's not about flying into tackles it is about a will to win and do well, he had that yesterday

I don’t think we should happy clap every fvvcker but it feels like Reach is becoming a bit of a scapegoat again. 


Of course they couldn’t wait. It gives them chance to tell their mates they were right.

 

He made a couple of rushed clearances after about 60 mins and on ifollow I could hear people shouting ‘gerrim off’ and ‘useless Reach’ as clear as day

 

Despite the fact that he was playing well, and on those occasions there wasn’t really much else he could do but try and hack it away

I wonder if he knows he's lined up for a move in January? Benfica were mentioned recently. I suspect our continued P&S problems are going to force a sale of someone before the end of the season?

These idiots that slam Reach are clueless, he's so important to us, not just with his goals/assists but his off the ball play is excellent


I really hope Reach doesn't read the morons giving him stick on social media, I think he's brilliant

Thought he was guilty of trying too hard at times, like it’s not quite running for him.


Good shout.

 

If that’s true, hats off to him.

Me too mate. So do I.

 

Happily, so does Monk.

Seriously Reach had a good game last night, should have scored with the header, but he put his head in where it hurt and it went just past the post, several maurading runs, good shot on target..No complaints

He worked hard last night and put a shift in. 

 

For some reason he seems to have lost a yard of pace. When he runs it is like he is running through treacle. 

 

I think he's a much better player than he is showing right now, but then Monk (and the managers before him) keep picking him. 

 

People are clamouring for Nando to start (can understand why), but I'd fully expect Reach to be lining up against Leeds on Saturday.

I think there’s a danger of increased bitterness towards Reach. Many fans want FF to play at any cost. There’s only two players he can replace in Monk’s line-up, Reach or Harris. 
 

Fans should recognise that we have three fabulous players for two vital positions, and take great pleasure in that. It’s a long long season and whilst Reach can play a long hard campaign, we know FF can’t and there’s no certainty that Harris can.

 

As I’ve posted earlier, I loved the fact that we could replace a slightly below par Harris with a coiled-spring Forestieri. Wonderful options for Monk.

I didn’t see it that way. He showed great pace to get away from their man when he ran the ball away from our box. However, he has definitely lost stamina to run fast over a distance. Hence he took the foul despite getting beyond his man.

His nail varnish standard has def dropped. To get the proper effect you really need the pins and needles and a thick coating of red nail varnish. 

 

I'd much rather have a reach round off FF ATM
