Step up FF

Classic Owlstalk, 2 wins and every player gets their own thread telling us how brilliant we are ( forgetting we could have been 3 down) ,usually ending in

" And long may it continue"

 

Meanwhile we can discard anyone that wasnt playing , what a bunch of football slappers on here

In the Fox interview after the game  he spoke about the players running thru brick walls for each other. I don’t think Forestieri fits that description nor fits into a squad or team ethos at Hillsborough anymore.

I think he puts the effort in on the field when he's selected. 

 

Just can't be arssed at training or during the school holidays.

 

Bit of a shame for him and us.

It makes £30k+ per week sense that could be better spent on someone who going to offer something every week.

Hes not on 30k tho we only have 2 players on that and its westy and fletch

 

But yea I agree he had his time here now I'm sick of his annual Christmas holiday.

The one big plus from his lack of effort in training and frequent injuries is that we’ve finally learned to play and win without him.

 

We found that ages ago.

 

In his last 18 starts we’ve won 3.

 

Ipswich - nil nil when he went off

 

Charlton - one one when he went off

 

Brentford - won 2 -0

 

We are a better TEAM without him. That said, it’s because we persist with him as a striker where he’s hopeless. I’d still love to see him as a winger or wide forward.

Charlton away FF started. We scored our goals to win the game after he got subbed off.

Yes fair play I did get that one wrong but still a game changer especially in that swansea game

Gotta trust monk on this one. If he shows he is ready, committed and on his game I'm sure monk will use him if he sees fit. If not, he will be 'monked' and out on his toes...

It's like those women who get beaten and cheated on but keep going back, that is our fans with Forestieri. He's not provided anything consistently since the second play off season, time to move on.

Who are you dropping?

 

And/Or are you changing the system to shoehorn him in?

A real pity as FF was unbelievable player and so loved by the fans. No idea whats happened to him, but hes not missed. I was one of his greatest fans, but nothing in 3 years now. So sad.

If he has anything about him, hell be working his nuts off and trying to restore his reputation. Its his only chance as he wont get any sort of offer like hes on here.

The balls in your court fernando........wed love you to come back and impress us again

Well Monk says he's hoping to have him back to full training next week.

We'll see what happens then.

Here we go again......

 

He's still the best forward at this club.

 

He will score goals from open play, free kicks and penalties. He will defend from the front and he will be an outlay when we are under it and need someone to bring the ball out and dribble 30+ yards.

 

We will need Nando to be bang in form for the end run. The end run will determine whether we get promoted or not. We don't have any other players who can score consistently. Fletcher is pretty much out for the season.

He will be rotated with Harris/Murphy/Reach, Nuhiu/Winnal/Rhodes.

 

Nando himself will need to be in form and he will need to get us promoted, (taking into account our current league standing). For the very reason of getting a contract with us or another club. (On a side note he may be more protected in the Prem by the use of VAR, but that's another issue for another day).

 

What is not useful is this current obsession with bashing our most talented player. He's under contract until the end of the season andI doubt anyone is signing him now.

 

So rather than bash what could turn out to be a very useful asset; why don't you lot try and back him or just keep schtum.

 

Even if we wanted to sell him this January, it's the type of chat seen on this thread that reduces his value, so economically it makes no sense!

Nobody at the moment but an alternative as a sub or if injuries etc.

Puts more pressure on player with the shirt.

Wide left obviously his position.

Reach/ FF  left

Harris/Murphy right.

Pretty good options.

Chairman: We've lined up a deal to sign Forestieri from Sheffield Wednesday. What do you think?

 

Manager: Have you seen what they're saying about him on Owlstalk!? I'd knock a few hundred thousand off your offer, if I were you.

 

Chairman: Right you are. Can't believe we almost overpaid for a player who some blokes on Owlstalk don't rate.

You should never burn you bridges while ever a player is still on the pay roll (especially when they are on a fair whack)
But its about time FF sorted himself out, cut out the attitude and earned his wages.

If it’s 451/433 I’m using him in an advanced midfield role how Kieron Lee is used, obviously he’s had two very good games so won’t be out of the side at the moment but with his injuries he will need to come out and Forestieri will come in.

In a 442 he’s playing up front with Wickham !!! Or if he doesn’t sign whoever else until Fletcher is fit.

Firstly.... This is what I actually said...... 

 

"it's the type of chat seen on this thread that reduces his value, so economically it makes no sense!"

 

Secondly, please mistake me if I'm wrong in thinking that posters on this very site have been sued, (rightly or wrongly), for the content of their post before?

 

I actually don't want to finish my point, for various reasons, which would see me win the argument.

 

So on this very issue I will bow out. 

 

But think about. Really think about it.

Any player in the last months of their contract has to perform.

 

The rest of his career depends on it. 

 

So I expect Forestieri to put a shift in to try and impress. 

 

But he may struggle getting in the side.

Crikey Manners, you can't just leave that one hanging there!

 

If there's a winning blow in the armoury bring out the hammer and crack the old nut wide open, before marching away in triumph!
