  1. With our current options and the fact our fitness levels appear to be poor I see a low block and counter attack as our only viable option to be honest. If we try and control possession, press high and/or outscore a side like Brentford we will get battered.
  2. I think I'm alone here but I actually think Martin slows down quite a lot of our attacks. Think he takes too many unnecessarily touches at times and gives the ball away quite a lot. To be fair to him that may be down to our lack of movement and runners in behind. Him and Fam could work but think we would need to in a similar way to how Burnely do.
  3. Not much pace, width or creativity in that side. Personally I would go 4-5-1 look to soak up pressure and hit them on the counter. Only way I see us getting a result. Bentley Mariappa--Kalas--Mawson--Rowe Adekalun-Vyner-Nagy-Bakinson-Semenyo Fam
  4. Thought he looked ok. Gave us some much needed width and out a decent cross in that Bakinson should have scored.
  5. Portsmouth looked a really decent team for league one to be fair. Although think a championship team would have taken at least one of their chances in the second half. I actually thought Martin was poor other than his very well taken goal. Slowed down our attacks and gave the ball away a lot. We looked fairly solid defensively until Mawson went off. Bentley quality again. Bringing on Wells right midfield was a very bizarre decision. Lost our shape and Wells is definitely not a right midfielder. Semenyo was decent but needs to stay wide more for me when he's playing on th
  6. I find it hard to believe the club wouldn't have known the seriousness of the injury before they sold Morrell and let Palmer to go out on loan. Fair enough players get injured but you do have to question the club's thinking sometimes.
  7. Honestly I don't think there are many managers better than him tactically. Their squad on paper looks bang average but they look serious contenders for the top 6. That was an excellent result last night even more so when you consider how many key players they had out. If I was a Chelsea fan I would really want him to replace Lampard.


    He's always available and very good at taking the ball off the defence and keeping possession. Hes also very good at winning the ball back. Imagine his pass percentage is high and his amount of interceptions, which will likely attract bigger clubs. Pack was really good at taking the ball off the defence and keeping possession but Nagy is definitely better than him off the ball.
  9. Great post this! Would be interested to see how our spending compares to Brentford, Swansea, Norwich and Leeds (before promotions).
  10. Not seen much of him but isn't he very much an out and out winger?
  11. I think for Palmer to be a success he would need to play as a number 10 with a number 9 with decent movement and pace in front of him. Wasn't a coincidence that his form went out the window when Afobe got injured last season.
  12. I watch England Under 21s quite a bit and Boothroyd is awful tactically. They do quite well in spite of him definitely not because of him. There's a lot of very talented young English players currently but next to none top English coaches.
  13. Hopefully the club learn from this signing. Anyone Stoke are interested in should be a big warning sign. Not convinced signing players over 30 is the way to get out of this league if I'm honest.
  14. Right now it feels like a terrible decision to let him go and get Brunt in who let's be honest hasn't been great, is injured and probably on more money. Saying this letting Morrell go still feels like a worse decision which is saying something.
  15. I normally only bother to watch the top 6 teams games in the premier league to be honest but this season I have been watching most of Leeds games just because they are so good to watch. I watch teams like Leeds, Leizig, Liverpool and Atlanta and think no English coaches seem able to play this style of football. It's almost like British coaches are 10 years behind the rest. Like Mourinho we seem unable to move on from the low block. Interestingly Atlanta have a very similar wage budget to us apparently. Leeds haven't spent massive amounts and the likes of Swansea and Brentford
