  1. Be happy with mid table if we are playing decent enough football and look to be going in the right direction.
  2. The amount of money English players go for is embarrassing. He's a good championship player but I wouldn't bet on him scoring more than 10 next season which surely should be expected for that kind of money.
  3. Southgate has done a good job but think he has been quite lucky to be honest. We had a easy route to the semi finals in the world cup. Apart from the Spain win I can't from the top of my head remember us beating anyone I wouldn't expect us to beat under Southgate. Unfortunately I don't think the FA will be proactive in getting rid.
  4. Trippier left wing back. Very weird team selection. Basically just heavily relying on the front 3 to provide something as there's hardly any goals or creativity in midfield. Might work tonight but better teams will just cut off the supply to the front 3 quite easily.
  5. Upwards! Under Johnson we just didn't seem to have a clear plan most the time. At least with Holden we seem to have an identified formation and style of play which we have signed players to fit.
  6. Good signing. He's lightening quick. Dare I say it been a decent transfer window.
  7. Starting to think more and more that Holden is gonna make us a well organised hard to beat team. Signings seem to point to that. Also heard a lot of emphasis on getting the ball forward quickly in training. Potential low block counter attack game? We have the players to make it work. It's certainly one way of getting us out the league. Ironically was how I thought we would play under Hughton.
  8. Too slow on the ball for me. He's still young though and will get better think moving to a better club side who reguarly have more posession would help his development. Think we missed Winks and Henderson. A deep lying play maker type is essential to be successful at International level and they are the only 2 players who seem to be good enough at it currently. Do wonder if the likes of Maddison, Grealish or Foden could be played bit deeper as they do seem to have the qualities to play the role guess the only question is do they have the discipline as they play further forward for t
  9. Not really sure what Ward-Prowse has done to be starting for England pretty average premiership player for me. We may as well take him or Rice off and put Grealish on second half with Iceland sitting back so much. Playing Trippier at left back really poor decision from Southgate.
  10. Atlanta, Brentford and Ajax have had success with similar styles with far more modest wage budgets.
  11. My main point is that he's not suited for a high pressing game. Sounds like if your gonna play a low block with runners from midfield he's a good signing. Just pointing out his signing goes against what Holden has been saying a bit.
  12. Let's be honest most the top sides in the world play one way. If for example Man City and Liverpool make any changes they are normally pretty minor.
  13. Whoscored.com disagrees and is one of the best resources online to be honest. I've seen him play a few times target man is exactly how I would describe him. How would you describe him?
  14. He's an old fashioned target man type no? Good in the air, holding the ball up and strong. Remember seeing him play for Derby and thinking he hardly moved. If your planning on pressing high up the pitch probably not the ideal striker.
  15. Seems a weird signing to me this. Holden said he wants to play a high energy pressing game then we sign one of the least mobile strikers in the league. I guess on a plus side he's signing on a free, has experience and gives us a long ball option B.
