Still can't get my head around why both home and away fans are allowed to leave the ground at the same time. Asking for trouble and nightmare to police, especially as everyone seems to head in the same direction. Surely all this could be avoided if the away fans are kept for a little while? Just so the home fans can disperse, or are we not allowed to hold back fans anymore?
Well this might be a bit controversial but this is my honest opinion after watching last couple of home games. I personally would like to start looking at other options up top. I just don’t see him as a striker, admittedly he has proven that he is good poacher around the box but for me hasn’t done anything that Taylor can’t do. I’m NOT saying I DON'T want him in the team just not as a striker when we have goal scorers in the squad. There have been numerous times were Fammy finds himself receiving the ball and Reid is nowhere near him, he does not have the positional sense to play up top. The 10 minutes I saw of Taylor against Leeds he was constantly on the shoulder of the last man looking for the ball or looking for the knock down from his strike partner. Now I know he has scored a few goals this season but if I’m right in thinking (most likely wrong) they have mostly been tap ins not clear cut chances. I would much prefer him in the team but in a free role behind the two up top that allows him to drift late into the box. Now this will call for a change in the system we play and I not saying a have a solution to this, but lucky for us I am not the one who gets paid to make these decisions. Would like to reiterate this is just my opinion after watching a couple of home games where we have had little of a goal threat and is not in response to the Leeds game.
Smith was captain for Oldham when LJ was there he clearly rates him. Obviously that was in a lower league but I would say Smith has developed as a player since then. I myself am more than happy to see Smith in the starting 11 on a weekly basis, very busy player and can run up and down the pitch for 90 mins every week. Would love to see him in an more advanced role as he has shown he does have a more creative side to him ( trying to remember his brace a couple of seasons back in the cup, Cheltenham i think?) However who do you bring in to cover/compliment this? Brownhill, Pack or Heleger?
Would really like to see how Hegeler would fit into the midfield. Arguably one of the best passers of the ball in the squad and a very clever player with his positioning. It's just at the moment the midfield pairing whoever they may be (depending on rotation) are just playing too well at the moment, would not want to risk playing Hegeler without a couple of games under his belt in the position. Cup games perhaps, Anyway as people have said nice problems to have. Have a feeling that when injuries come which unfortunately will happen we will not be as worried as previous seasons.
