  1. The real concern for me is that I think Afobe has been a major factor in Kasey Palmers form this season. I don’t dislike Diedhiou but Afobe is far more mobile. He gives Palmer the opportunity to play his passes. He stretches the opposition defence and allows Palmer more space to play in and on top of all that, they seemed to get on so well on and off the pitch. I don’t think it’s quite as simple as “we’ll miss his goals”. I think it’s a massive blow to the way we have been playing too.
  2. Bizarre really. Why bring him on against Leeds (he did play well when he came on) and leave Smodicz sat on the bench if he wasn’t fully in your plans? Does feel a bit like LJ is playing football manager this window!
  3. Great servant to the club, but with the Championship improving in quality year on year, it felt like it was getting more and more difficult for him to positively impact games IMO. Right time to move on for me. Good luck Marlon.
  4. Not ideal but I’m actually glad we haven’t spunked a load of money on a striker we didn’t really want. Also means Semenyo might still get a look in. This is low risk and a bit of support for Diedhiou.
  5. If he doesn’t want to be here then we’re not missing out on anything. I remember how disinterested a highly rated Danny Rose looked when he was down here on loan. Just hope that they had a few options in mind in the event that this did happen. TBH, we waited too long for Arsenal to make up there mind anyway. We should have moved on a week or so ago.
  6. Get rid. Waste of a wage and I bet he’s on a fair wedge.
  7. Absolutely spot on Dave, especially agree with this part. It’s so obvious. IMO he is as about as luxury you can get. Now I don’t mind “luxury” players, they are what you pay to see in some respect but they have to deliver enough to make worthwhile compromising on what they lack in other areas. For me, Paterson doesn’t deliver anywhere near enough.
  8. Agree. His bravery in the way they play; fearless, attacking, aggressive football. It’s so impressive. Whoever they are playing, whatever the situation, they very rarely change. They fully deserve their promotion.
  9. Assuming Webster is in midfield but Paterson offers less in terms of going at people than Eliasson IMO. We’ll see.
  10. Would loved to have seen us really go for it today, get at them and get the crowd going. These opportunities don’t come around all that often. I can’t help but feel a little bit deflated by what appears to be another defensive looking lineup at home. Paterson gets a recall ahead of Eliasson and Palmer. Hope he turns up today else we’re really lacking a creative spark going forward.
  11. When we have such an obvious lack of cutting edge, it’s quite unbelievable (to me anyway!) that Kasey Palmer doesn’t start games.
  12. Was just going to say the same. For such a so called "progressive" coach, he's always afraid to make the necessary changes when it matters.
  13. I'm not so sure, that first half was particularly special.
  14. That really was horrific..... You would think he was setting up a team to face Man City. We'll have to chase the game now which will suit them.
