  1. What caught my attention with DH is if you look back at the clip of that great cup win over Man United a few seasons back and when we scored the second and what was the winning goal. Whilst LJ was juggling a ball boy, McAllister and Scotty were embracing each other, there was DH in the technical area still straight faced and concentrating on the game and trying to calm everyone down and to concentrate on the few minutes left to ensure the focus remained - That for me is someone who is an ultimate professional. Yes celebrate by all means but do it once the final whistle has been blown! It


    Perhaps having Martin up front is the difference and now we actually have a focal point in our attack who can be relied on to receive and keep the ball as opposed to Fam which isn't the strongest part of his game This allows our midfield and defensive players to play into Martin with confidence around the 18yd box as opposed to over reliance on wide players to constantly put crosses in and hope someone gets on the end of one
  3. If Palmer has another good game versus villa then Pato’s place must be under threat for the game next Sunday DH and the assistants must be looking at performance stats and be considering a change and shouldn’t have any loyalty to players if they fall below standards
  4. It’s a good start, that’s all. I’m pleased for DH, the coaching staff and the players who certainly appear to have bought in to the plan As LJ used to say, see where we are after each batch of 10 games What is refreshing is we are not playing safety first football but actually going after teams and getting the ball forward through passing channels and not just route 1 it’s promising and far more enjoyable to watch and hopefully DH doesn’t become streaky Dean!


    I think to come out on top tomorrow DH needs to ensure we out work Stoke and pressurise them into mistakes in their half and be clinical. That’s how I think we can take advantage and get the win
  6. Agree, experience and leadership qualities and also CB is probably best place for a captain to be playing and can see the full picture in front of him
  7. Sad to hear this news Gordon used to pick me and a few other lads up and take us to matches to play when I was a 11/12 yr old - I won’t say who I played for but they were from the other side of the river lovely bloke who really cared about youth football and got to know your family and was always there to help RIP and thank you Gordon
  8. Don’t think Kalas is too bad and sounds like a strain as club say it will be short term but probably not available for Sunday Good news on Williams bring back training
  9. If Fam is still mulling over his contract offer then I would let him do it from the bench or the stand and be using Wells, Weiman, Martin & Semenyo until he has cone to a decision Nice bloke and gives his all when not distracted but he should be nowhere near a starter on Sunday versus Stoke in my opinion
  10. What may also help is the constant run of games and a big squad that enables DH to give players game time and to put into practice what is being asked of them from the training ground if you are winning and producing good performances then it breeds confidence In the 2017/18 season we saw similar with our cup run and the great league form for the first half of the season at least
  11. Training will be interesting the next few days!! I wouldn’t want to be the one to select the starting 11 for Sunday especially the midfield and forwards Whatever team he puts out I would like to think those selected will be under so much pressure from team mates that they will walk through walls to get a win and a good performance and keep the winning run going
  12. Good to see we are applying the dark arts, long overdue and being snidy little sods
  13. Walsh & Williams together is what I’m looking forward to Add in any other midfielder and that will suffice in my opinion Hopefully we can start dictating games and probe defences with some good football as we certainly have the personnel now if they stay fit
  14. No, laid the first goal on a plate for Paterson
