  1. Fam actually has a better career record than Wells. They are close but Fam has scored at a rate of about 0.36 per game over his whole career, Wells is at 0.33. That gives Fam a seasonal average of 16 with Wells on 15. If you look at just league games at Championship and Prem level only then Fam stretches further ahead as Wells drops to 0.29 per game. Wells has 112 goals in 210 games, Fam has 37 in 110. I say including the Prem - Wells has only played 9 games in that league and has 0 Premier League goals. They are both effectively 1 in 3 strikers, but Fam actually slightly edges
  2. As I said earlier in the thread. He now has 40 in 120 appearances across all competitions, and that's across only 3 seasons. He plays, he consistently scores 1 in 3, and he can defend set pieces. He's not perfect but he's bloody good.
  3. The kind of player we will sell, and then 2 years later everyone will complain we never replaced.
  4. Fam's 40th goal for us by my reckoning. In his 120th appearance. Mr 1 in 3.
  5. Nathan Baker down. The more things change...
  6. One thing I want from a new manager is an end to this stupid teamsheet that has players in numerical, rather than position, order.
  7. It really was a source of great frustration for me over the past season. Decent players, potential there, but just somehow not clicking. Hopefully whoever comes in can find the system that fits these players and allows them to confidently play their own, undoubtedly excellent, natural game. Is that Hughton? None of us know. I am skeptical of appointing someone solely because they've "done it before", but I accept that the man has a good CV, especially at our level, and so would be an appointment that would be hard to criticise...until we lose 3-0 in his first game of course. The D
  8. Yeh exactly, but he doesn't need to chop the tree down and start again. @downendcity was completely right. I'm also sure that the club, the owners, and any incoming manager will know this as well.
  9. Agreed, I see the squad like a fruit tree that has been growing really big and really fast. In many ways it 's everything you'd want in a fruit tree, but branches start shooting off in wild directions, it's big and green and it looks great, but it isn't beautiful, it doesn't produce great fruit. We need a new gardener to come in and take that tree, prune it where it needs it, water it, care for it, and craft it into a tree that not only looks great but also produces great fruit. Oh, and seagulls follow trawlers fyi.
  10. Interesting to hear you say you enjoy the fan interviews. Swear you used to say you hated approaching people. What a character arc.
  11. Agree, Wells' record shows a reliable championship striker who should get you 10-15 goals across a season, and he's on 3 in 12 for us right now (very roughly the expected return based on those career figures). As an aside, I don't think Wells is any more proven than Fam is. At Championship level Wells has 5 seasons, top scoring with 17 in 44 in 15/16 and averaging 12 goals a season. Fam has 3 seasons with us, hitting 13 in his first 2 and currently is on 10 for this term. Wells has a promotion under his belt and some Premier League experience, but I am not sure that automaticall
  12. I'd like to see us all out committed to a 352. I think my goalies would be Bentley, Max, and Maenpaa (in that order). Gilmartin retained as a coach (which is basically what he is already) and Wollacott either sold or another loan. Defenders would be Kalas, Moore, and Baker I think. LB Dasilva with a new RB on the other side. Vyner retained as a utility sub for the defence. In midfield I'd have Nagy and Walsh/Morrell/Massengo. I'd keep Smith around but on the understanding that it would be a less prominent role. Up top I'd try and retain Afobe and actually the same with Fam.
