  1. We tried to loan them Adelakun last week. Thankfully he chose Hull.
  2. Using that same XI I’d probably prefer Semenyo on the wing, Nagy moved into centre midfield and then Palmer playing as a 10 in a 4-4-1-1 just to get players in their more natural positions and bolster the middle of the park a bit. Probably still would’ve lost in any case but do feel as if we set up to fail a bit tonight. Hopefully Holden doesn’t fall into the Cotterill trap of sticking too firmly to his guns if things happen to go sour in the league with the current system, need to have a bit of flexibility in the side.
  3. Any system which meant we didn’t have to play Tommy Rowe as a LCB and Eliasson at LWB against a premier league side would’ve been ideal. Not a dig at Holden as things have gone superbly so far, but as soon as I looked at those lineups I got the sense that we had very little chance.
  4. Even if they were it wouldn’t be a good idea to stick it on here would it now officer?
  5. Sarcasm detector not working this morning?
  6. Absolutely, I think Brunt is an upgrade on him. But in terms of positions they cover and the way they play there isn’t too much dissimilarity. I know Rowe filled in at centre back on the weekend but I’d be very surprised if that was to ever materialise in the league. Holden stated earlier that the midfield needs stripping down so it seems an obvious choice to me to try and shift Rowe on.
  7. Very good player for years particularly at this level but don’t think he’ll offer too much for us now. That being said it’s a good head to have about the place and should offer decent enough cover for Dasilva. Would be good to get Rowe off the wage bill now as they’re both a bit too similar for my liking.
  8. Rubbish, he knows his own body and when it’s not right to carry on through the pain barrier and risk further injury. So many people, myself included, have played through that pain barrier and left themselves out for 10x longer than they initially would have. He’s very well managed and we benefit from that in the long run by him consistently being available, even if it may be frustrating that in 5 games during a season he has to come off early.
  9. I think it’s worth noting that in his statement he said that the club aren’t able to offer him a contract “at this time”. Certainly makes it seem like they hadn’t ruled the possibility out to him, i.e if a new manager wanted to keep him on. But because they’ve made such a hash of that he’s been strung along with it.
  10. If the decision was made a while ago then why has this still not been announced by the club 1 day before pre season, with the player seemingly being left in the dark and now making the decision for himself to move on?
  11. It’s a shambles that our longest serving player is going because a manager hasn’t been there to make a decision on him. Whether or not he should’ve been kept on is irrelevant, so poor.
  12. Even if it proves to be that way it will be down to complete luck rather than judgement and they know it.
  13. Ahh forgive me, I thought he had the job until mid January 2016, not realising that after his tenure he then stayed on as an assistant to Darren Kelly and then David Dunn.
  14. Unfortunately he does have managerial experience. He was in charge of Oldham after Johnson left and after getting the job permanently he was sacked 10 months later after just 6 wins in his 39 games, a win percentage of 15%...
  15. Sky Sports first claimed he was interested a few weeks back. No one got particularly excited about Hughton before that point if I recall correctly but it was a name many wanted.
