Player Minutes on Pitch

Recommended Posts

There are some names at the top of this list that are very pleasant surprises.

 

Harris 1574 (out of 1710 minutes available 19 x 90 min matches played)

Fletcher 1564

Bannan 1467

Borner 1395

Hutchinson 1365

Reach 1317

Iorfa 1305

Palmer 1304

Fox 968

Odubajo 966

Lee 758

Murphy 687

Lees 662

Nuhiu 528

Luongo 460

Forestieri 298

Pelupessy 252

Winnall 140

Rhodes 67

 

Great to see Fletcher and Hutchinson fit enough to feature so prominently. Lee too is playing more than most of us thought we would see.

 

Sad to see Rhodes and Winnall as also-rans. Though it does make clear the department most in need of quality back-up.

Fletcher, since the beginning of the season looks the leanest and fittest since he's been here.

Think that shows in his performances too.

 

Think his best season was 14 goals about ten years ago. 

I think he's on to beat that.

I like the way that Monk gives players time to recover from injuries - Lees would have been rushed back under previous managers, Lee has been eased into it.

 

Re: Fletcher, I think him (and Bannan) are benefitting from not being picked for Scotland any more so getting a proper rest. Palmers performances tailed off after the two recent international weeks. Maybe the Scotland squad just sit around eating deep fried mars bars?

Biggest concern here is minutes for FF - he is now effectively a back up for Harris (and Harris looked much better when switched to the left on Saturday) and with his wages presumably in the top five at the club that money could be better spent

 

Injury proneness + disciplinary issues + lack of effort/application = poor value for money

 

One to get rid of in January for me

He’s booked his Christmas holidays now and quite literally on his bike.

 

Thanks and good luck FF.

Thing that stands out from that list for me is that the top 5 were all free transfers

The bottom 5 all commanded transfer fees 

 

More smart recruitment please Mr C.

Cheers OP. 

 

Ties in with my thread on Monks  use of the squad (sort of). 

 

Not too long ago we were saying how we had 7 forwards - now we have 5, but need work in that area.

We’ve not done too bad without a keeper playing 1 minute between them

The top 5 are also some of our biggest earners. Turns out you *do* get what you pay for...

When you look at the players playing most of the good ones cost us nothing.

 

Makes you wonder why we are losing so much money when very few of the players at the club costs fees, I notice from above Westwood, Dawson and Wildsmith are not their all were either free agents or youth players too.

 

There is a lot of good free agent talent if you have a management and recruitment team that have any clue what they are doing.

 

the big worry for me is all 5 strikers we have are out of contract in 7 months and currently no signs of new deals for any of them.

Can't argue with that, despite not a fan of the big man upfront he's had a fine season.

It also puts to bed the misnomer that Fletcher wouldn't be able to play so many matches and would need resting. He looks fitter than most at Hillsborough; one or two others take note!
