  1. Eisa was in the same bracket as Adelakun (who we still have), young player who had success in the lower leagues. Unfortunately neither has impressed when selected for the first team, the better players make an immediate impression (eg Massengo). Championship football shows up weaknesses in players, if they're not good enough someone else will get the shirt next time it's a cutthroat business
  2. Given we were in the market for a top-end forward (we got Afobe in the end) Eisa would have been well down the pecking order, LJ couldn't have expected to lose Afobe after a few games so it was the right decision for both parties at the time.
  3. I actually thought he was one of our best players yesterday although he seemed to be playing further forward than usual, he had some passes which went astray in the attacking half but was sound as ever when in his defensive role. I reckon LJ is experimenting with his role and it might take a bit of time to fine tune, he's only just turned 18 after all and is learning all the time.
  4. Thrown in at the deep end against Fulham and stepped up to the plate when the club was at it's lowest ebb, always worked hard and gave his best
  5. 1 in 4.5 might not sound brilliant but he's played quite a few games in La Liga including a goal against Real Madrid while on loan at Zaragoza, goals like that count more than scoring against Luton for instance in the Championship
  6. This may have been put about from a source relating to Arsenal (or his agent) in order to pressurise Leeds to give him more game time, I'd have thought it was a long shot him coming here but worth a try
  7. Roy was just a caretaker and was managing the club when all the financial problems were going on, he did the best he could with what he had but can't really judge him on the results during his tenure while all the players were worried about whether they'd be paid next month or be looking for another job
  8. A bit harsh to say he's "non-scoring"at this stage, to me he looks willing to shoot whenever he's in that position and I can see him scoring goals, once he's got the first of his career he'll be more relaxed. I hope we can hold onto him for at least two seasons (or more if we get promoted), I've been watching City a long time and I think he's the most exciting young player we've had since Andy Cole
  9. There'd be no point in selling him soon since we don't need the money and he's only 18, we could keep him till he's 21 then sell him for even more. He'll be better off here getting games while he's young, if he goes to a big club he'll end up like Nketia ie just getting a few bench outings and cup games
  10. Having looked up the offside law on the FA's web site a goalkeeper making a save is treated differently from an outfield player making a pass, so that would explain it
  11. But wouldn't it then be a new phase when the PNE goalkeeper touches it?
  12. The ball came to Weimann via the Preston goalkeeper, it depends how you define a route
  13. So what constitutes the start of a new phase?
  14. So the offside rule is different depending on which direction the ball's travelling?
  15. After the Boro game LJ said the ref had interpreted the new offside rule correctly although it meant we lost a goal, that would make yesterday's ruling incorrect?
