  1. Exactly. Even their “free” players will be on huge wages. Bamba was in Serie A then Leeds. Won’t be a small amount. Hoilett was at QPR when they couldn’t wait to pay people. As you have said about Madine and Tomlin. I imagine paying quite a bit in wages for loan players like Wildschut, Grujic and Bryson. Not to mention almost 2m on Danny Ward. Cardiff I would guess are spending a good deal more on wages than we are plus having a bigger squad. Warnock at Bristol City would have been a disaster. I am not even sure we’d be better off in the league. We weren’t set up the same as Cardiff when he got there. Old squad with pedigree that just needed new motivation. We were(are) a young team that were going to make mistakes no matter who was in charge. Would NW have been successful in that environment? Would our players have grown to what they are now? I doubt it
  2. If Junior Bent and Luke Freeman had a love child....

    Paterson has done it for us this season though not as good at it.
  3. If Junior Bent and Luke Freeman had a love child....

    Let me start by saying that RK is a fantastic talent. I am 100% sure he will be a very useful player at the top level and if not won’t fall below championship level. Good pace, skill and two footed. All that said he is only with us another 3 months. Already been here about a month and is still making the same mistakes or wrong choices when on the ball. Still a bit selfish as well. To his credit is working much harder off the ball but with our wing options we already had(Bryan, Brownhill, Pato, Eliasson and soon to be O’Dowda) I am just not sure he was worth the risk. It feels like he has come in and taken a spot not on merit. He is the least impressive signing of January imo.
  4. It is all improvement from here.

    The game he was sent off we dominated even with 10 men. Bolton was bad but then two good halves against Sunderland and Leeds. Then there is last night which I thought was quite good too. The performances haven’t been as lethargic as they were in January. No Baker suspension and we probably come out of February with 10+ points.
  5. It is all improvement from here.

    Agreed. Many said it at the time tbf.
  6. Mags

    Don’t think needs to be that physical at LB. They don’t have the physical wingers. We could do with less of Pato or Kent Sunday. Bryan in front of Mags and since Pack is out either Pato, Kent or Eliasson. Shame there is no Djuric though.
  7. It is all improvement from here.

    True but I get why people are nervy. The bad stretch has come at a bad time. It has also lasted a bit too long. Mostly unlucky I think. The Baker suspension think really hurt us. We were back to our best but lost our most influential defender and it took its toll.
  8. Mags

    He played last time and his throw assisted the winner. He is a good LB just spoiled watching JB most weeks
  9. Mags

    Yea or Kent. I have been looking for the thread on him so I can speak my mind but none yet
  10. Mags

    As was everyone. Personally thought it was madness to lose him just for long throws. Plus thought he left the subs too late again.
  11. Diony

    Yep. Had the look of someone who knew when and where to be. Dare I say he looks more in tune with everyone else now? Who’d have thought it would take 3-4 weeks of training to look comfortable playing with an entirely new team in a differemt country?
  12. New signings plus Diedhiou back

    I think it had a bit to do with the stumble but that excuse was gone when we played Sunderland and Leeds imo. We have had a month of just weekend matches now(probably just short) that included 4-5 days in warm weather. I think there are many reasons and it isn’t really fair on the players to say he is the reason. Famara and Kent were two standouts in the halves we went 3 and 2 up. Should those leads not be safe? Like I said it is a number of things like luck(Bolton possible penalty), own goals, a key suspension, integrating new players(whether new or back from injury), out of top form players(Paterson and Diony). Many reasons all at the same time. Funnily enough we have looked really good in most of our matches still at some point. Baker back will improve us massively. No Pack weakens us though(not to the point Baker’s loss did though imo). Two huge games in the next 5 days now and the boys will be up for them. Not likely but I wouldn’t be surprised if we took 4 or 6 points. This group has a way of coming together in bigger matches.
  13. Diedhiou

    He is good. Just don’t think he occupies defenders as well as he could. He looks to flick on with his head which I don’t remember anyone getting on the end of. Doesn’t bully defenders is maybe what I am trying to say. Not in the same way we saw Wilbraham or Matt Smith do.
  14. Diedhiou

    Not in the same way you see others more familiar with the league do. Watch Andy Carroll, Aaron Wilbraham, Gary Madine or that type of forward. They are seeking out the contact with the central defenders. They are pushing them back while receiving the ball to either flick on or control and lay off to a teammate. If you watch Djuric he keeps an arm out to the defender looking to jump and win the ball. Personally think it makes him less effective on winning these as I have seen him muscled out and not challenge at all. In the box he has a better feel for what to do with his size and strength though.
  15. Diedhiou

    I think he is strong just doesn’t know how to use it. Much like Djuric. They don’t get into the bodies of defenders as much. They look to keep a gap so they can jump. I think it is why Wilbraham was so effective or if you look at someone like Gary Madine. No question in my mind they could both do this but who teaches that? On Fam I think he has been an outstanding buy. If you listed his pros and cons he would have a lot more pros. Poor touch, not the quickest and doesn’t always use his body to full effect. What he does bring is a good football IQ, great work rate, composed finisher, good aerial threat in both boxes and selfless. The injury may have been a slight blessing as it may keep teams away during the summer. He had a slow start but if you look at games from October until now I bet his goal record is very impressive.
