  1. Did you miss the point where I said about taking games beyond our oppositions reach before making such substitutions? Im not advocating that we take unnecessary risks. I just cant see these players getting much game time due to our inability to maintain significant leads. Get off your overly argumentative high horse and chill out.
  2. It certainly makes you feel a little smug as a city fan. Even pundits are surprised by him. Not to knock his talent but I think his hair does help set him apart.
  3. I'm sounding negative now and this really isn't intended. The win last night was brilliant, and some youth are breaking through. I just fear others may be being under utilised as we pursue promotion. I guess that's the nature of the beast We always looked light in cover for De Silva
  4. Those decisions would be based on form on the training pitch and understanding between players. But if I had yesterdays bench and we were 3-0 up I would have wanted to see how Semenyo and Szmodics would do if they came on for Afobe and Palmer. As it was we weren't 3-0 up and coasting. My point stands though, how often are fringe players going to be given an opportunity to gain vital minutes if either a. Lee doesn't trust them or b. We aren't winning by many goals?
  5. As another poster pointed out, I'm talking subs rather than dropping anyone.
  6. Those listed (Jennah when fit) but appreciate this will take time and the team needs to settle. I agree establishing a good side is vital but I just cant see us seeing a 3-0 scoreline at the moment.
  7. I'll start by saying I wasnt at the game last night and I don't want to take away from what was a quality well deserved away win at a tough place to play on the road. But as we have done many times before we went from a position of dominance to flat out defending for our lives to rescue 3 vital points. This has been a common sight over the last two seasons where over the last 50 or so games I cant recall really dismantling a team by more than 2 goals come the final whistle. I appreciate I'm asking for a lot but LJ is clearly a conservative manager when it comes to youth and he requires a significant scoreline to risk the likes of Semenyo, Szmodics or Jennah. Considering our flanks looks like our weakest area by far, is it in fact our failure to recruit better that has left some of our talented players out in the cold? It's very early in the season and we've had a tough start but I have sneaking suspicion we wont be seeing as much of the youth as we'd like.
  8. I'm really surprised Moore hasn't been given higher ratings on here. He's clearly been given encouragement to take the ball forward and looked dangerous with it at least 3 times today. Mostly looked sound defensively too despite having hunt in front of him. Yes it could of been a clanger when he was disposesed but I'm happy for those risks to be taken when we have the experience of Baker and Kalas around him. Also how much is he going to learn this season playing alongside those two.
  9. Haven't read the article yet, but given what he mentioned in the podcast this took weeks to pull together with insights and interviews from all over the place so I doubt it's been hashed as a quick apology to the club. Perhaps it's just timely?
  10. You get the impression LJ's man management skills are going to be tested more than ever this season. There will be some unhappy players left on the bench or out of the squad regardless of how he tinkers. When is it that the league 1&2 loan windows close?
  11. I had completely overlooked Walsh. He must be question when he's going to get game time at the moment. If there is a silver lining for him I guess it's other than Brownhill, LJ has no established midfield favourites yet.
  12. Who do you think will start and who'd you like to see in the middle of the pitch? Would swap palmer for szmodics and brownhill for HNM. A combo of Szmodics, Nagy and HNM would be industrious to say the least. On another note would be tempted to play Afobe again to help get his eye in. Perhaps with Semenyo.
