It's a forum.

 

People are discussing a stat (zero tackles) that is actually quite amazing.

 

I don't ever remember a holding midfielder making zero tackles in a game.

 

Perhaps if you could post a list of topics we are allowed to discuss, we could meet with your approval.

Discuss what you want mate.

My opinion is it’s a waste of time , and like any forum I am entitled to my opinion.

As for a holding midfielder not making any tackles, you have absolutely no idea whether it has happened before.

And I am not for one minute defending Joey, he is not good enough.

I just think if a shît player is playing shît it's obvious.

 

If a good player is playing shît there is something to think about.

 

Probably just me.

 

Either way. Not matter soon enough.

 

Monk will be he gone and we can bring Hutchinson and Westwood back in to lead us to glory 

 

There have been plenty of threads about our good players not playing well.

 

The frustration is that Pelupessy continually gets picked and we hear about his great attitude around the group. That's great from a personal character perspective but what we need in the team is a footballer who is up to his job.

Without trying to sound unkind, but he really is a terrible footballer, probably one of our worst since the turn of the century.

 

Can do absolutely nothing right. Even tackling (which is supposedly one of his strong points as a DM) he can’t get right and always just fouls his man. Positional sense is shocking, passing is shocking, I really wonder at times what he did to make it as a professional.

 

Forget League 1, he’s more a mid table League 2 player, at absolute best

I am not defending his performance or otherwise as I have not seen it (being in Devon and having plans with the daughter meant I couldn't follow it) however I do have my thoughts on this.

 

He is a pro footballer. Regardless of what people feel his quality is, this is a fact. I would bet he knows he had a bad game, as much as he knows he has better games. As a pro he will work on what he needs to do better with the coaching team to ensure there is an improvement in the next match selected. This is what any professional would do.

 

We do have another, better, holding midfielder. Unfortunately, he has not demonstrated the aforementioned professionalism to take a poor performance on the chin and work on it (allegedly)

 

If you were managing the team would you prefer someone playing who was willing to listen and improve upon the performance or someone who squared up to you when you questioned the quality of performance?

 

Do we not give him the benefit of the doubt to improve and self-criticise?

We all know he isnt good enough.

 

It's like coming in from the rain and saying.

 

"It's wet out"

 

Everyone knows.

 

Still. It's an easy one to point out I suppose. 

 

Papers over the other cracks.

 

He did win a tackle mind,  on woodrow.

Nevertheless 

 

Hang the bastærd! 

 

 

Wow amazing thing about this pic is that woodrow is standing up!

Must have fell to his knees just afterwards!!

Zero tackles by a holding midfielder is absolutely abysmal.

 

The other players weren’t great but considering holding midfielders are there to break up attacks and make tackles I’d suggest they were much better than Pelupessey yesterday.

 

It’s been evident since he got here that he’s completely out of his depth at Championship level, dreadful player.

 

He broke up many attacks TT ... ours! lol

This is the problem - we're conditioned to accept mediocrity, and fans go along with it, almost defending the indefensible.

 

Just because he's a good character around the group doesn't give him the right to line up in midfield. If this was the case Stan Boardman would have replaced Carlton Palmer in midfield in the league cup final.

Zero.

 

Surely this can’t be right?

 

If this stat is correct that’s absolutely pathetic for a holding midfielder. I’ve said it time and time again, he’s a dreadful player and shouldn’t be anywhere near our starting 11.

That’s why Monks out his depth.

Needs to go but unfortunately with luongo injury and hutch not getting a look in we have nothing else 

 

And this is the problem isn't it - 4 years since Hull final with the knowledge of what we wanted to go to the next stage, and this is what we are left with.

 

It's a sad indictment of our nonsense recruitment policy.

Spot on.

 

We have to stop accepting mediocrity because they are good blokes.

 

Bully, Big Dave, Joey, Reach, Palmer, Foxy, Dawson etc.  The club is littered with triers who aren't good enough.

I wish you would stop casually dropping Fox into your little group du jour... he's distinguished himself in a struggling team more than once and he's currently potm..

We desperately needed a DCM this January. Massive mistake not bringing one in.... Yet 

We also desperately needed an attack. We got one.

 

I suspect that we would have brought in a def mid if Fletcher hadn't got injured.

Reminds me this of the Ashley Westwood times.

 

One  of the lowest paid players, clearly not  good enough player , but who tries gets slaughtered. 

 

While well paid players , who should be good enough and who don't get near their potential get a free pass. 

 

It's the way of things I suppose. 

 

Nothing changes

 

True.

 

A 400k gamble and that is about his worth.

 

My frustration is that we have a better player in Hutchinson sat in the stands and that we have known that we needed better than Pelupessy for 3 years and haven't done anything to address this.

I agree. 

 

I think he gets picked though because he's never injured. 

If the others were as fit as he was and didn't break down as much I doubt he'd be getting picked. 

 

I'd go as far as to say we need eleven if we're to be anything other than the mid table team we are.
