  1. All fair points - they obviously have different strengths and weaknesses. Fundamentally, though, their biggest attacking role/contribution within the system we're playing is carrying the ball forward and getting us up the pitch.
  2. High on football ability, low on football smarts and intelligence. Constantly picks the wrong pass, constantly makes the wrong run, constantly gives away the cheap, needless foul. Might be a bit harsh, that, but I think he's a poor man's Andreas Weimann in the role he's playing at the moment because his actual output is nowhere near as good.
  3. I thought he was our best player for the first 15-20 games of last season too, to be fair. It goes to show how important confidence is and if you get on a roll in either direction things can snowball. Undoubtedly, though, a confident and on-form Daniel Bentley is Premier League quality.
  4. It concerns me as a manager - in the general sense, not specific to football - he finds it hard to compliment and pump up a player/member of staff. I see this so often in managers, particularly men, and find it bizarre. It’s actually a real buzz being nice to people and building their confidence, from my experience.
  5. I’m a huge Taylor Moore fan but the biggest flaw in his and Zak Vyner’s game, in my opinion, is almost being able to sense danger when we’ve got the ball. The one really poor pass Moore played second half was - similar to the Middlesbrough goal - straight after he’d received a poor pass himself as they flooded us with the press. He has to read those situations quicker and not be too proud to just smash it into the channel instead of playing out.
  6. In fairness, given the number of players we’re missing and everything that’s happened over the past fortnight I think they’re giving it a bloody good go at the moment. Third at this point of the season was not what I expected when Dean was appointed. Will it last? In any other season, playing like that you’d say no. This year? Who knows.
  7. Four points from those two games, all things considered, is not something to be disappointed about.
  8. Much more purpose about us since half-time. These are there for the taking, I think.
  9. Weirdly, despite the lack of goals I’m probably less worried now than at any other time since he joined. Given the position he’s been asked to play in the past two games, I think he’s completely sacrificed himself for the team in the way he’s worked, tracked and covered. I suspect the Norwich performance and penalty gave him a bit of a kick.
  10. I wouldn't say we've looked good in the 4-3-3. As @Davefevs alludes to, it's funny how fans can be very clouded by results. I think our most complete 90 minutes was in the win at Stoke City.
  11. Presumably because they’re able to test on the 10th day, so don’t need as much as a buffer. Would make sense. (I was involved in the writing of that story so I probably should’ve known that already... )
  12. Unless football protocols are different, it’s actually 14 days for people who’ve been in contact with someone who’s tested positive. If you test positive yourself you have to isolate for 10 days from the day of the test/the day symptoms begin if that’s after the positive result. I’m particularly familiar with these rules because my wife, already off work with second fatigue syndrome and anxiety, has managed to pick it up. We’re only in our 30s but even for us this is far from fun.
  13. Probably slightly more complimentary.
  14. He’s like a Championship Peter Beadle.
