  1. We need to know exactly where Rowe was when all these injuries occurred. I hope for his sake he has a good alibi...
  2. I conflated medical and fitness earlier in my previous reply but essentially, as I understand, it is both. Theoretically we should have a specialist medical and fitness team or who are involved in the design of the fitness aspects training and ensure it is done in a way that builds fitness and reduces the risks of injury. I don't know exactly how our coaching is set up but I think that, whilst Holden and the first team coaches would oversee it, they should be getting input from the fitness coaches who should be designing and organising appropriate fitness training and ensuring that the ot
  3. Until recently, I felt we were unlucky but we should not have this many injuries and nor should they last as long as they do. There are some - Mawson, Weimann for example - that could not be helped but how can we have so many persistent niggling injuries that last forever. Starting to wonder if Brunt agreed to cancel his contract to avoid risking working with our medical team...
  4. Such an awful situation to be in. Look after yourself and hope you find a way to cope as well as possible with everything going on.
  5. With a lot of young players I'd agree but for me the key points are: a) He is already playing most games for us. and b) Rightly so. Whether or not he's scoring goals, I think he's in the team for a reason and adding more to our attacking play than most this season. At the moment, with our injuries, I feel he's easily within our best available XI and I'd have him down as a strong case as a starter if all our players were fully fit.
  6. Incidentally when Theirry Henry was Semenyo's age, he had scored 19 times in 94 league games. Better than Semenyo but still evidence that 21 is very young to judge a player.
  7. I feel I have been proven similarly right on Louis Britton. I knew he'd never make it in the first team and I must be right because he is currently playing non-league football at Stockport. Obviously far more foolish posters than I will reply with absurd comments such as "he's only 19" or "give him a bit of time FFS" but that's obvious nonsense. I can judge a young player's entire career trajectory based on right now and say that I told everyone so.
  8. It's a dull unexciting draw and a tough game but with no glamour but nonetheless the draw sent a bit of a tingle down my spine, simply because Millwall v Bristol City is the last game I attended in person pre-lockdown...
  9. I didn't think he was outstanding but he had a couple of good moments, including a great touch for the assist for Diedhiou. He'd need to improve a lot to be a first XI choice when everyone is fit but I thought we looked a better side for having two natural wide players and, for now, would be inclined to start him out wide ahead of trying to squeeze Wells into the formation in a position that doesn't suit him.
  10. Are we really resorting to bleating on about female pundits and commentators? I think 2007 wants its topical debate back...
  11. Whilst I don't disagree with any of that, I think the effect will be slightly different to what you perceive. There will be a lot of Championship and League One clubs with players out of contract at the end of the season and I suspect they will likely in many cases let those players go and attempt to recruit better players on lower wages. I agree the money is not sloshing around and players will need to accept the contract they get offered this summer will not be the contract they would have expected 18 months ago but I still think a player like Walsh will be offered a contract by (at least)
  12. I know he's been injured he was player of the season last year for a team that got promoted from League One. Obviously time will tell if he can cut it in the Championship but the idea that a player who stood out in League One last year won't do better than League Two seems a bit of a strange argument.
  13. I really would recommend this book: https://www.waterstones.com/book/david-bowie/dylan-jones/9781786090430 An incredible artist, a fascinating (albeit complex and sometimes morally questionable) musician who left an incredible legacy. Incidentally well worth checking out his Deram recordings. They're hit and miss but a fascinating document of an artist finding his place in the world.
  14. In fairness, whilst there's not a lot to judge on here, I'm quite enjoying Vyner in midfield. Maybe an option we'll utilise more if our midfield problems persist once Mawson's fully fit and Baker is back?
