  1. I prefer Massengo to Nagy. Not seen enough of Williams but right about King. He was ok today I thought but just ok. Not really sure he helped too much but did nothing wrong.
  2. Nagy would have been a better partner with James today imo. Think he suits us when we concede possession and can use his energy to get into good positions and win the ball back.
  3. They have reached an agreement for Leon Bailey at Leverkusen. Another wide player to go along with El Ghazi Buendia and Traore. Seems the Grealish thing is going to happen and they have sorted themselves out already. Though I will say not convinced with Bailey. Might be their first bit of business I didn’t like in awhile
  4. It wasn’t a bad performance really but the goals will be as soft as you’ll see. That needs to be cut out asap. Consistently got behind out fullbacks. Still it was a starting XI that would probably be promoted at our level and we won’t be seeing that next weekend. Kalas in for Atkinson for me. Williams or Nagy in for King(assuming Massengo not ready). Wells in for Martin or Palmer. Actually thought we tried to play off Martin a bit more today and some flashes. Had bodies near him.
  5. We will score 3 today now but we won’t score many if that is our starting XI during the season imo. Weimann the only one capable of double digits out of that lot but not if he is played wide. Martin might scrape it with a lot of minutes but at the cost of the team
  6. Got to be get a crack surely. We only have 3 in competition with each other at the minute. His next step should be this level imo. Treat him like a new signing and ease him into championship football. Baker has poor injury record so surely be some minutes available. Kalas also has a game where he may suffer an impact injury here and there.
  7. For me, Massengo has to play. Be playing him and James together. James is very vocal and will organise from there which will be vital imo. Nagy would suit playing in the way we have been playing in preseason. Williams I know has a good reputation but bit behind the 3 I mentioned for now. Too many still. Be ideal to raise some funds by selling one. My early starting XI would be Bentley Simpson Kalas Atkinson Dasilva Pearson James Massengo COD Weimann Wells That can turn into the 4231 with Weimann being a link. Pearson is growing on me.
  8. Why is this even an issue? The club and NP have been quite good in getting info to us on the main sites/accounts. Gregor is now redundant so hardly going to get the main man to divulge things. My impression is that we are much more professional now. COD was even careful with what he said on commentary in regards to shape and tactics. Same with injuries. Let us leave that to the imagination of the opposition. As for Gregor, he is getting bare minimum which is up to the discretion of the boss. Didn’t this happen to Andy Stockhausen with Cotterill? Seems to me NP has enough on his plate to worry about Gregor and his employer. Maybe just me but I care about the football. All the other stuff is much less important to me.
  9. Not so sure about him. Was the last one involved last season. About the only one that didn’t get a new contract. He put himself about and scored but didn’t see it the way you saw it early from Conway and Scott imo.
  10. Is that Matt O’Riley? If so, I agree. He was quite highly rated at Fulham at one point. Still very young and perhaps one to keep an eye on going forward.
  11. I can see him play anywhere because he has the talent. I’d just like him further up the pitch when taking the risks. That is why I suggested a striker type role similar to what Dele Alli was playing with Harry Kane a few seasons ago. Obviously Alli had that natural movement and finishing. Palmer does have some good composure and finishing traits. Not as sure on the movement. He can be a factor from wide positions but think easier for him to drift out of games from there. He uses more energy defending and think it costs him on the ball. perhaps less of an issue under NP. I hope KP can take a step forward. That can said about a few of our lads though.
  12. If we are expecting Palmer to be the key man we are in trouble. If he finally realises his potential and puts it all together then we can maybe push higher up the table than expected. I can’t explain Palmer any other way but it is more likely he is in and out of games rather than a steady influence. He does work hard even if a bit of a headless chicken defensively. Maybe that can be coached up and he can save some energy for on the ball. Love him though because I think he wants to live up to the expectations he had by many. Just doesn’t have the modern day game imo. The risks he takes and the areas he takes them in just kills the side when played centrally. Then from the wing he isn’t really the type to beat his man with pace and skill. Think for championship football he need to defensively be a striker and drop off when we get the ball back. Not sure is something NP is willing to do though.
  13. Agree about striker. Would love a younger pacy option. I like Conway but not sure he is super pacy. Plus real young outside Wells and Martin. A good 23-24 year old would be great. Still think same with Vyner just want to see him after 20 or so games in that position. Always seems to grow into roles for me. Winger agree as well but don’t think it is on the agenda. Pearson and Semenyo both in that mould. Maybe Pearson more like a traditional one that you are speaking of but Semenyo I am a big fan of and feel he can take another step forward.
  14. Yea 9 min and he jumps out. Game doesn’t look hard for him at the minute. Obviously a reserve L1 side with trialists but being so young looks impressive. Francois just scored for Pompey! He looks decent too tbf to him. What you’d expect for a young un full of energy.
  15. I’d like to give Vyner more time. He has been on loan after loan in different positions and then again last season. He needs a a good run in one position and I am confident he’ll be a good championship player. Have seen him have good games at RB so is capable. Not sure we need all that. Semenyo will help the wing options and Wells I think would have been more of a goal threat today with Palmer than Martin was. And RB I think is fine for this season.
