  1. Totally agree. Was watching him during the warm up, geeing other players up etc. Was impressed with his attitude & professionalism before the game had even started. Great character. COYR
  2. I know the actions spoken about, but I would more refer to it as a block ( am I being pedantic?). It’s not a 50/50 type tackle ala Semenyo. It’s more often than not, a sliding block against a fullback clipping it down the touch line, isn’t it? COYR
  3. If only Korey wasn’t out ( a big if only!). Would have him as the DM, move Nagy forward & Dasilva back to left back & that would be a very interesting team potentially. But personally like the 3-5-2 & I now think we have the players to apply that, when everyone is fit. Interesting times ahead.COYR
  4. Another simple thing that infuriates me, ‘ feet & back’. Amazes me that a professional footballer doesn’t follow this. I was taught that as a youngster & cannot believe it’s not taught throughout. But with regards Nagy & Massengo, a definite improvement with regards ability & understanding of the game imo. Constantly on the move, creating angles. Constantly looking over their shoulders to get an idea of things before they receive the ball & obviously a great touch to go with their confidence in receiving the ball in tight situations. Going to enjoy watching these two I think. COYR
  5. Fairly sure he is in Turkey or at least, he was. Certainly was a player, was LJ here when Caulker played? COYR
  6. Unfortunately, I’m 40! But I was responding to the ‘ sense of entitlement ‘ bit for the most part. I think it’s known as growing up though. COYR
  7. I almost stood up & clapped this post. Absolutely spot on. COYR
  8. Thick as pig s**t & that’s doing pig s**t a disservice! Glad everyone seems ok though. To argue it or to somehow justify it, is moronic. So to do it is bad enough, but to throw it there, well... just unbelievable. COYR
  9. Think Pack would of been 10 yards further back imo. Great servant to the club & by all accounts a top lad. COYR

    Massengo

    Thought when he first came on he looked a bit lost on where to put himself positionally. But boy did he grow into the game. Two headed opportunities & one after he won the ball, played the ball out wide & then got on the end of the cross. Great home debut & looks like a real talent. Also loved his dribble & shot when it opened up for him, when no other options where on. COYR
  11. A game of opinions I suppose. But I cannot agree with most of that. You only had to look at LJ’s reaction to him coming off to know he put in a shift. If we are talking about players hiding, I’d put a few in front of him! Agree he wasn’t at his best during the first 30 minutes. But thought overall he did ok. Will be imo a great signing. COYR

    Afobe

    At last, a proper striker imo. I cannot remember the last time we had a striker who has good movement, pace & a bit of know how to go with it. Really think he could be a great signing. COYR
  13. Absolutely spot on. The runs he makes are sometimes never going to happen. The angles we create are poor in the final third generally. No one showing & coming short, it’s a real problem in our play. We are stagnant at times & that’s when the hoof ball comes to fruition. We are at times far to predictable & sluggish in possession. We are at our best when we play at a high tempo. Which we did more so during the second half. But better teams won’t give you 45 minutes to get going! COYR

    Glad he has his own topic. Big fan of his & was starting to think he was undervalued by most on here. Cannot argue against his injury record, but when fit he is a top 6 centre half without a doubt. He was immense today, as was Kalas. A proper centre half parings performance. COYR

    Always meet the ball. It was lazy play from Palmer. He demands the ball in those situations, backing his own ability, which I like to see. I would also be very surprised if he wasn’t aware of the oppositions presence. COYR
