    Andi Weimann

    He just isn’t a natural goal scorer imo. Most forwards don’t get more than 10-12 in this division. Probably only 7-10 will net 15+ Isn’t a massive problem as he does a lot of work for the team and is pretty intelligent. Probably get 5 or so assists along with 8-10 goals which would not be a bad return. Probably win us a few penalties as well We do look light on goals but we are solid defensively. Hopefully the likes of Taylor, Brownhill, Eliasson, Watkins and COD can get around 5-7 each and that will keep us in good stead. Then need Fam to find form and net 10 or so. Then the rest get 1-2 each

    ollie Watkins V. FD !

    Watkins and Fam completely different players and Fam cost 2-3 times more as a central striker whereas Watkins is more of a wide forward. Fam devoid of confidence atm. Watkins wasn’t great yesterday. Walsh imo can be our Bannan. I am sure of it. The more he plays the more I think he grows into a larger role.

    Team for wednesday

    Max Hunt Webster Kelly DaSilva Eliasson Pack Brownhill COD/Watkins Taylor Weimann Pato too out of form to keep starting imo. Played ok yesterday but needs to take that into sub appearance. Fam similar. Came on and did more of what you expect of a 5m striker. Carry that into your sub appearances and starts will come. Kelly is so good that he can pass as a LB. Then he moves to CB and you see a star. Plays CB anytime Kalas or Webster out for me. DaSilva unlucky to have Kelly ahead of him but should start EVERY time Kelly can’t play LB. Eliasson adapting to the right side. Ok with him getting more minutes there Watkins/COD not sure if COD is fit so either will do for me. Both will do the work in front of JD. Max as long as Maenpaa is unfit. FF days may be numbered. Great servant but imo a downgrade on NM and Max almost as good if not even at this point. Everyone else keeps their spot on merit. Sometimes Brownhill and Pack can have off games but perspective needed as the often up against 3 in CM. They do a fine job. Walsh on for JB again possibly? Or a striker if we want to see out a lead. Deserves minutes either way

    Our defense yesterday

    And they are good too. Wasn’t just a one off(well you could say it about Max but think he can be a good champ keeper). Add in Eliasson and Walsh too that finished the game and you realise how young we are. I have seen some say we aren’t a young side but we really are. Even some of our older players are still reaching or just reached their prime(Weimann 27, Pack 27, Hunt 27, Watkins 27, Smith 27 & Wright 26). Lots of experience but a lot of football left in them and arguably when you start getting the best of players. Point is, we ask an awful lot of players under 24 years old when realistically they are matched up most weeks with players with double the experience(perhaps why yesterday we played well as we could match their youthful exuberence). Our biggest challenge is keeping these young players together for 2/3/4 seasons for a real promotion push

    Websters a good un

    Exactly how I see it. I actually think he could be one of the better aerially in the division. I have no numbers to back it up but after seeing Flint for 5 years think most will think AW isn’t the most physical whereas I think he might be one of the better physical CBs in the league but also can play with the ball at his feet. Stays fit he has premier league written all over him at the level he is playing at

    Brentford fans

    Thought they had a tackle perhaps early in the second half that reminded me of the red Baker got against QPR last season. Wasn’t even deemed a foul. I am all for tough tackling but from where I sat looked reckless and a bit too forceful(by todays standards). Just looking for consistency and yesterday he was not for both sides.
  7. JoeAman08

    Oh Dear

    COuld have for sure not booked them but at same time you can’t have complaints. Got to be smart on a booking and he wasn’t. Fair play to Eliasson though it was very saavy to go across him like that. On another day he stays on the pitch but it wasn’t an offensively bad sending off is my main point
  8. Yea 9 was well too high. He was anonymous before he got Mepham sent off. Some say soft but a defender knows he can’t touch him in that scenario. Anyway back to NE, nothing before that and his shots before his goals were so bad. Even his set pieces didn’t look as crisp imo. I’d give him a 7 for picking up last half hour and scoring but not a vintage performance No one imo deserved a 9. Even Dasilva who had a good game had a lot of not so great moments. He just countered those with quality so some have given him MoM but not for me. Best player yesterday was Webster for me. Ultra efficient defender who is calm on the ball and rarely makes wrong decisions.

    Elsewhere today.

    After that long international break where we hadn’t won in 5(which is an acceptable run in this league) and the doubt about getting something at Brentford(I am guilty on this) after yesterday we are just 6 points from top. Only 4 behind Leeds who has been the story of the champ so far. 2 off playoffs and 9 above relegation spots with joint 6 best goal difference Anything can and will happen in this league but got to say we are at least where we should be and on pace for a similar season to last points wise. After losing Flint, Bryan and Reid as star players and Magnússon as a squad player. Plus injuries to 2 at least main rotation players in Wright and Smith. Think we are having a solid season. Got an “easier” run of games coming up and we have a chance of finishing the first half of the season strong. Nothing like a day in the championship to either fancy your team to be pushing playoffs or to think relegation is a big possibility.

    Oh Dear

    Majority of their forum reckons MoM was the ref. Tbf he done a complete 180 at HT and gave us all the little cheap calls and gave us the benefit of the doubt after a Brentford sided 1st but not sure you can complain about the sending off. He and Pack both booked for the little get together then he clips(smart by NE and naive of Mepham part imo) NE gently but enough to make the ref have a decision to make. Had Maupay not miskicked that chance early I reckon Brentford eases by us. He didn’t and they imploded mentally a bit more every minute that passed. A draw would have been fair. 11v11 Brentford may have edged it but 30 minutes of a man advantage and we won. Brentford only have themselves to blame for their sending off and honestly were lucky to finish with 10 and Maupay. They should thank the ref for avoiding sending him off and being suspended later this week.

    Games left to the half way stage...

    Being quite generous I can see 20 points there. Being honest I see I see 14-16 Being brutal I still see 9-10 So we should be heading into the halfway point on pace for at least 60 points which I think would be a fair return for a team that lost 3 standout players. I always look for safety first. This league is so unforgiving so safety is never guaranteed. The closer to 50 points we are the happier I will be
  12. All his throws allowed for a touch and time to pass. Don’t know what else can be done. Caught on the ball is also harsh as Baker played him into a world of trouble. He was still 6/10 for me but done nothing wrong at all
  13. JoeAman08

    I see Scotland lost - again....

    Fair enough. We are definitely on the up though. Reckon our starting XI younger than the one that started against Spain. Be an interesting next 10-12 years for both sides. England have better depth and probably a few more with high end potential over that span but reckon USA will have a strong XI in the next 3-4 years. Meaning I don’t think we will have many champ players making the squad unlike the last 10 years or so(Williams, Ream, lichaj).

    Player Ratings - v Brentford

    Could not believe their fans. Ref was poor for both sides at times but they were acting like they are a massive club that deserves every call. Eye opener this one. Same about their team. Moaning all game but the dirtier side. Maupay is a proper **** won’t type it but you can guess Ratings agree. Kelly looks so much better when he doesn’t have the touchline next to him. Do a job at LB this season but when Kalas goes back I am all for Kelly playing 46 at CB in a 2 or 3. Happy to see Walsh. Deserves minutes and think he can be a key player for us this season and definitely next. Probably our most technically gifted player. Fam did ok but still looks a bit short of confidence. It is like he doesn’t have te mindset to battle with bigger CBs but get him on a FB and he comes to life. Needs to take that to CBs. Will win some and lose some but needs to stay positive. Everyone played their part today which was good to see. Even out of form players were at least ok. Pato was fine but probably only thinking that way because of how poor he has been. If he can build on today though we know he can be a lethal creator

    Jay Dasilva

    Kelly should be third choice CB regardless. Kalas and Webster for sure starters and Kelly at LB. Until Kalas is back think it should definitely be JD. The side seemed to gain confidence when Baker went off that they could play around Brentford. For me, I can’t see a way back for Baker this season. I’d probably even prefer Wright to Baker at this point if Kalas/Webster and Kelly injured. Our performances dropped after Kalas injured and I don’t think it was a coincidence. Think Wigan may have been a more one off bad performance if Kalas doesn’t get injured.
