  1. Really like Bielsa and his sides are great to watch but his style doesn’t bring success in club football. It’s just not sustainable to play at that tempo for a whole season hence why his sides burn out. He’s definitely made football a lot better though. It’s all about pressing and transitions now which I think makes for a more entertaining game. Just feels like the likes of Guardiola and Klopp have been able to build on his philosophy and make it more sustainable.
  2. If we don’t make playoffs actually think it may benefit all parties for LJ to leave at the end of the season. He will leave with his reputation untarnished. Will likely be able to walk easily in to another Championship job. We will likely have the opportunity to get a bigger name head coach who fingers crossed can take us to the prem.
  3. I believe he can be recalled this month? I am by no means his biggest fan but could we save ourselves a bit of money and give him a run of games in the number 9 role. Always feels like he’s played more as a number 10 for us when at Rovers and Oxford he has been played as a number 9. I am of the view that we are more suited to a 3-5-2. We have a very good number 10 in Weimann but since Afobe got injured we haven’t had a number 9 who can play on last man and stretch the play. Gives a bit more options in terms of how we can play. Can play more possession based football with Weimann and Taylor upfront and then more direct style with Fam and Weimann upfront. Could even play all 3. Let’s be honest to get anyone who’s a Championship ready striker in this window is gonna cost a lot. Can take a punt on someone like Hogan but he’s hardly set the world alight recently or get someone from aboard who’s probably gonna need time to adapt.
  4. Like Bobby and think he’s a very good player at this level but think we need a number 9 who plays on the last man and stretches the game more. See Bobby as more of a number 10 and we have a very good player in that position in Weimann.
  5. I think a lot depends on if we can get a striker with similar qualities to Afobe. We looked a much better side before he got injured.
  6. The ruthless sacking of manager approach certainly has worked well for Watford.
  7. Let’s be honest the local press won’t report anything without the clubs authority. I’d imagine they have leaked this to them in view of getting rid of KP or maybe even LJ.
  8. I think we just aren’t very good at it. We do try and play out the back but then due to limited options we normally then give it away or hoof it aimlessly up field.
  9. A lot of clubs have tried to copy Pep. Unfortunately most have got it all wrong and play a slow and pointless possession game that just isn’t effective. There has been quite a few times this season when I think we are one of them.
  10. I think Lee deserves to be given until the end of the season to sort things out. However, I would get rid if we aren’t in the playoffs.
  11. I do think we should wait until the end of the season and then asses our options which I think SL will do.
  12. I think we should probably look overseas. The director of football and head coach role is fairly new in this country. Also I am sure lots of promising young managers are more than willing to come to a championship club. I think we have the structure of the club right we just need a coach who can really improve young players and someone who is tactically sound. I think LJ has done ok but I don’t think he’s quite good enough to take us to the next level.
  13. Probably his kind of level now to be honest. Football has moved on and not sure he has.
  14. There all so well media trained now it’s almost pointless doing them.
  15. Not sure this type of midfielder exists anymore, football has moved on. We need someone who keeps the ball and sets the tempo. Hopefully Nagy is back soon or otherwise looks a poor decision to let Pack go.
