    New boss ?

    There should be an aptitude test to post on here.
  2. First name on the teamsheet for me. One of those players that you don't recognise his worth until he's not there.
  3. Very well said and good to read some sensible, well thought out content that has been severely lacking on here the last few days
  4. Personally hope this one doesn't catch on.... https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/7301069/football-fan-vr-googles-brighton-manchester-city/
  5. Personally i'm of the opinion of if Afobe didn't get injured, this would be an entirely different conversation about him as they seemed to be on a great wavelength together. Honestly, i'm glad we've got someone in the squad who will try the 'hollywood pass' or something else creative in the final third. How often have we had to sit through the slow, monotonous build up play from midfield players who would pass sideways, backwards, sideways. We've been crying out for a creative influence in that midfield for a LONG time. With a bit more consistency/run of games, I think he's got the potential to be a key player in the side.
  6. I'm sure no words can even begin to bring you any sort of comfort, but surround yourself with love and remember the good times. To the entire Afobe family, stay strong, we're all with you.
  7. Is it a case of LJ being too nice? By this I mean his willingness to keep using pretty much all of his squad in rotation, rather than sticking to a tried and trusted starting 11. He had said quite a lot recently about players who are 'knocking on the door' and how 'everyone will be given a chance to stake their claim'. That's all well and good, but it surely goes against building up any sort of consistency and team cohesion on the pitch. Maybe this will change when we have everyone back fit again, who knows. Or maybe he simply doesn't have a 'strongest 11' in mind?

    Personal opinion but I would say 5 of your first choice starting 11 being unavailable through injury would count as 'ravaged'.
  9. Yes with the right players, think too many have jumped the gun and voted based on our back 3 last night. Moore, Williams and Kalas. With Hunt and Rowe have looked really good. (Will probably look even better with Dasilva back). Wright should never be seen anywhere near a back 3 again.

    I'm glad some of you aren't fans of one of the 20 other Championship clubs who have lost more games than us so far this season. I'd be concerned for your well-being. We've lost 3 games, 2 of which have come against the current top 2 in the league. Yes we aren't smashing teams out of sight, or playing particularly well at the moment, but what we are doing is picking up points on a consistent basis that is keeping us around the top 6. To be where we are at this point of the season, with the injuries we have had in the squad, is a damn good job. I'm incredulous at even the suggestion of Johnson out. We were awful last night, but s*** happens sometimes. Preston got beat 0-4 last night by a mid-table side and they're above us in the league. I'm not happy clapping anything, but a bit of perspective and big picture thinking sometimes wouldn't go amiss.
  11. I personally don't think we can play Weimann up top on his own for this one. I can see his work-rate being needed for tracking back a lot more often, meaning having no outlet and inviting West Brom onto us. I think Diedhiou will start as a target man to hold the ball up, and wouldn't be surprised to see Eliasson start either to whip those crosses into Fam. Bentley Pereira Williams Baker Rowe Massengo Nagy Brownhill Weimann Diedhiou Eliasson Robust in defence and across the middle with some pace and work rate on the wings.
  12. There was a busker in a tube station in London on Saturday who had a contactless card machine set up with a sign saying it was £2 per 'swipe'. I'm aware this adds nothing to the conversation but interesting nonetheless
  13. I was going to post saying I would like to see us keeping a few more clean sheets, but then thought i'd just have a little look at the rest of the top 6 for comparison. Clean sheets kept so far this season the by current top 6; West Brom - 4 Preston - 4 Leeds - 8 Swansea - 5 Forest - 5 City - 4 So with the obvious exception of Leeds, there's not much in it. Goes to show just how competitive this league really is. When you also consider that we've lost Webster and had Kalas and Dasilva out injured for long periods of time, I can really see us pushing on. First away clean sheet yesterday, especially at a place we've historically struggled at, should do us the power of good.
  14. I think the biggest concern for a lot of people was a lack of pace in a fast paced Championship. But when you can read the game as well as he does and put yourself in the right position every time, pace becomes a little bit more irrelevant. Superb addition both on and off the field and great work again by the recruitment team.
  15. Christ there's some miserly folks on here Footballers don't just exist to train, play and repeat, they do have lives of their own. Psychology and mental well-being is just as important as having skill and physical attributes, sometimes often more so. They're allowed to be mates and have a laugh outside of their day job.
