  1. Really? I thought they'd done pretty well so far.
  2. Once coaches see we are regularly playing three at the back they will start to plan on exploiting the gaps in behind our WBs. I think it may have caught teams out to an extent as LJ has consistently been a four man defence man in the past. Will be interesting to see if we can make this formation work or have to go back to a flat back four.
  3. Well against QPR everything came down Rowe's side. If anything I feel while we stick with three at the back it is Rowe who will be targeted. I'm not having a go at him but he isn't really a FB or WB whereas at least that is Hunt's proper position.
  4. If his contract is up at the end of the loan we won't be getting a fee for him then. Seems slightly odd to deliberately give him away.
  5. I wouldn't go with Fam & Afobe at Derby. We are likely to be under pressure and looking to break with pace. Not the ideal scenario to bring FD back imo. I would like to see them play together at AG though. I'm sure it will happen if we are behind in the last 30 minutes - or struggling to break down a stubborn defence at 0-0.
  6. Loved seeing Massengo ghosting into the box. Looking forward to seeing him play.
  7. I was also encouraged to see Afobe getting in behind the Brum defence. However I do feel he will need to stick one of those chances in the net sooner rather than later. What he really needs is a confidence boost, not the feeling that he's failing in front of goal.
  8. Looked like Wright was more at fault than Baker?
  9. Especially when LJ made a comment on RB after the match about how well he'd played.
  10. Leeds with most of the possession but Forest have defended far better than we did.
  11. After the way we defended against Palace and Leeds a point would be a nice surprise.
  12. If he's fit I wouldn't be surprised to see Wright at RB.
  13. I emailed them about my Membership card not arriving. They replied saying that was because it hadn't been dispatched yet and I'll get it soon after it is. I'd put a suitable emoji on now but if I try to open them it locks my browser up every time. @TomF it's all your fault (only kidding probably my crappy Android or Chrome or something).
  14. I'd love to know whose idea it was to spend £8m on an 18yo who has only played a handful of first team games. I find it difficult to believe that LJ would have chosen to spend that much of his funds that way. It does strike me as an MA decision, following the vision set by SL. Here's a little diamond for you Lee, polish him up and make us a whacking great profit please. All well and good but Lee can only lose in that scenario. I find it hard to see that the player will contribute significantly this season. If you're looking to finish top 6 this season surely this isn't the most effective way to spend that money.
  15. I'm wondering if a lot of players have known they might be going over the last few weeks. That might explain the poor performances. Hopefully the club will find a way to get them focused now - although a few more might still be worried they might end up in L1 I guess!
  16. I don't think we will know if it has been good or bad until at least Christmas. We won't know if the foreign players are bargains or the new Engvall/Hegeler for a while. We won't know if the squad can deliver the football LJ presumably has in his head but we haven't seen on the pitch for a while. I'm neutral about the changes for now awaiting evidence either way.
  17. Can see us being bottom third for a few months. If the players wilt under the pressure it could get hairy. Hopefully they'll gel and we'll go on one of LJ's hot streaks later on. I reckon 12-15th.
  18. I reckon LJ asked MA to take Pack and Pato away from him. He just couldn't stop himself picking them and knew he needed help. It's the kind of intervention that's needed for any self-destructive addiction.
  19. Let's face it. If you were EN or Arsenal and watched Sunday's game where do you think would be the best option? One side passed the ball nicely and created umpteen chances for their attackers. The other side lumped it long, couldn't string three passes together and looked totally disorganised. If you want to impress this season then it looked a bit of a no-brainer, although it WAS only one game. Let's face it - we're gonna end up with Nakhi Wells, who may have been ok three years ago but now will simply be a panic signing to avoid total meltdown.
  20. Another risk being a lack of height in defence of set plays. Our midfielders aren't the tallest and FD wins a lot of balls in our area from corners and free kicks.
  21. Or Jonathan Leko who LJ apparently had been tracking and was convinced would be a huge success. Allegedly.....
  22. Or alternatively he could be like that highly rated youngster Ryan Kent who came here from a massive club and proved he couldn't do it in this league.
