  1. I thought Fammy looked decent, especially in first half yesterday. He was winning the ball AND laying it off to a team mate and nearly scored. Second half he was fairly anonymous but then the service was fairly non-existent too, as Eliasson didn't get in his usual string of quality crosses. Losing Afobe is a massive blow, no good having Fammy up front with Weimann they just don't click, so for me got to be worth trying Semenyo & Weimann, or even Semonyo & Fammy (I know everyone loves Weimann for his endless running, but for me he doesn't offer enough end product - 2 goals in 8 games this season played up front in all of them speaks for itself).
  2. Agree with you re: Brownhill but I can only recall one time that Massengo lost position and he won position numerous times.
  3. Bentley - 8 - Very composed throughout, good save from FK just before HT and excellent stop to deny Ayew when he was right through. On the whole very good distribution too. Hunt - 7 - Defensively did ok, tried to offer overlap, crosses not quite as good this time around. Moore - 7 - Thought he did very well after getting the early yellow card, mature performance. Williams - 8 - Super solid at the back, seemed to be the one doing the organising too. Baker - 7 - Looked sound up to the early substitution. Rowe - 6 - Worked hard defensively, didn't offer anything on overlap. Massengo - 8 - Really good CDM performance, retained and won possession really well. Brownhill - 6 - Lots of effort, but lacks composure in and around the opposition box. Two good shooting position from FKs without seriously testing keeper. Weimann - 6 - Usual endless running, but wasteful when in good positions. Szmodics - 4 - Just never got in the game. Fammy - 7 - Best performance from Fammy for a while, unlucky with first half effort that went just wide. Maybe should have done better with heading chance in 2nd half. COD - 6 - Did a lot of defensive cover, didn't show much going forward aside from the cross in for Fammy chance. Palmer - 6 - Didn't influence the game when he came on, but neat & tidy when in possession. Eliasson - 5 - Disappointing for me, crosses and corner well below usual quality. Overall, draw probably a fair result.
  4. Yes, but his crossing was poor today, even when taking corner which found the first defenders feet!
  5. He put in lots of effort, but lacks composure for me. HNM & Nagy far superior footballers.
  6. Fammy has played well since coming on, Weimann wasteful and Szmodics not in the game. Could go either way this.
  7. no fights, just singing, what's wrong with the youth of today!
  8. Based on this season, Swansea are the best team we have faced since being very much second best to Leeds on the opening day. With no Afobe, I fear we will pose a much reduced goal threat and all too often give possession away in their half. 1-3 to Swansea.
  9. Sadly I think you are right. Missing Afobe is more of a setback than either DaSilva or Kalas injuries for me. Will be a real struggle to maintain a top 6 place now, and apart from taking a punt on someone ooc like Bony, we can't do anything about it until January. Gutted for player and us.
  10. just read pages 16-18, I'm still none the wiser as to whether Afobe has a bad injury or not? Massive blow if he has.
  11. and I though they were awful, David Lloyd's voice sounded flat throughout and the chats with Lisa, were basically sharing opinions, not commentary on the match at all!
  12. Sky presumably paid extra to being able to show championship midweek games live, so that's extra income. Doubt it has any bearing on attendance, given that all championship clubs stream those games for live viewing anyway. So anybody wanting to watch on TV, rather than attend, would use that medium if Sky red button not available.
  13. All about opinions, personally in the games they have played Nagy and Massengo are to me consistently performing at a high level. For me Brownhill does that sometimes but equally sometimes has games where he seems to exert little influence. All academic as LJ won't drop Brownhill anyway!
  14. No question should play, him, Nagy and Palmer together would be special...
  15. My thoughts... Bentley - 8 - Made a couple of key saves, anticipated Stoke forward balls really well, good distribution. Looked really solid. Hunt - 8 - Has to be an 8 with assists for both our goals, not really tested defensively today. Baker - 7 - Did what he had to do calmly and efficiently Williams - 8 - Grew into the game, thought he should have made way for the early sub, but LJ was right to keep him on. Used his experience to good effect. Rowe - 5 - Not quite at the races today, looked the weak link defensively. Palmer - 6 - Kept coming too deep to get on the ball, made a couple of good runs but didn't get his head-up to play the right passes from those runs. Weimann - 6 - Lots of running as per usual, but also as usual not effective when asked to move wide. Should perhaps have scored with chance in the first half. Fammy - 6 - Scored the equalizer with a well placed header, otherwise would have been a 4 as generally poor. Semenyo - 4 - Offered very little, wasted best chance of first half by blasting over, seemed to be jogging around rather than pressing, very disappointing. Brownhill - 6 - Busy performance without really impressing. Massengo - 8 - Mature performance way beyond his years, just rarely ever loses possession for us and covers forward runners so well. Eliasson - 6 - Battled well, but crosses were not up to his usual high standard. Moore - not on the pitch enough to rate.
