  1. Yea I do too but not sure I rate him at that level. He isn’t at a Ben White or Adam Webster level for example. That is what I mean about Fulham anyway. Think all their CBs are championship at best. They need to have a word with Watford about Dawson. Don’t think he has been playing for Watford in the championship and as much as I don’t really like him he has so much experience at that level and think is a good leader and organiser for a team like Fulham.
  2. I was thinking about this as well. He is their most expensive central defender yet they loaned him out. I don’t see a team with Fulham. If you think you are staying up with Hector, Ream, Odoi and LeMarchand as your CBs you deserve relegation. Idk if Mawson makes them better but I’d take him over Ream and Odoi.
  3. I am not sure of any stats so thanks. I am just saying that there are other companies spending on things such as new staff, advertisement etc. The economy has slowed but it has not stopped. Clubs need to sign players to help them bring in revenue. The debate about how footballer are paid is legitimate but no one foresaw a global pandemic. Many industries have been caught out by it. Where I work we had bought millions in stock. Are we to be punished because we spent that money? We won’t sell it all at once. Football spends millions on players to survive like businesses buy stock or supplies. Th
  4. Business goes on. Signing players is investing in the club. Other companies are still hiring people or paying for advertisement. You can’t just say you can’t sign anyone because of covid. Especially lower league clubs where contracts are usually 1 or two year deals. They will lose more money if relegated. Just because it differs from how most businesses run it doesn’t make it exempt from similar problems and competition.
  5. You don’t think football adds to the economy? I agree with your sentiment but the government is preventing football from sustaining itself during this time. Football contributes a hell of a lot to the government in form of various taxes just like any of us. I don’t think Premier League or even championship clubs should be looking to the government for help but L1 and lower should definitely be able to receive government help. The PL should help as well as it is in its best interests to do so but it shouldn’t be solely on them to help. 95% or more of clubs do their best to run sustain
  6. I think my criticism is solely based on his career. The levels he has played at I expect more from him when he has the ball. Never question his work rate or drive. Hell I think if you don’t look at his past you’d say solid championship player. In reality it is hard to ignore the what 150? Prem appearances and question why he often looks like he is thinking too slowly. Idk he is a good player and I have to say I am not sure he is droppable on current form, even in that position. I just expect better decisions from him from time to time.
  7. I’d say Paterson. Not sure we have a like for like replacement in terms of creativity. He can score all on his own. He can go by 2-3 players on his own and pick a pass or put one in the top corner. That on top of all the hard work he has been putting in at that position. Not sure Palmer or Walsh could replicate that exactly. Whereas I can see others filling in pretty much everywhere else to a good standard.
  8. Exactly my thinking when Kalas is back. Vyner is not perfect out there but possibly the best fit for that position. The centre suits Moore as well with his dribbling out. Not a massive deal though. Perhaps they all need to split time at some point. With only 4 of them you can probably get away with rotating some. Keep in mind Mawson has struggled to stay fit recently and Kalas the same since we purchased him. Talking past few seasons. Perhaps the problem sorts itself. Think Baker will end up missing out when he returns though. I really rate Baker but I’d want him central and he is th
  9. Probably not any promotion contenders in the 3 but similarly no relegation threatened either. Well, SW might be in the mix but probably wouldn’t be without the deduction. With that in mind, it has been these type of sides that have held us back. Not only have we not conceded in the last two games but we have killed the game with second goals. The team has a different feel to it. More ruthless perhaps and a bit tougher. Not horrible blokes but really professional and no passengers in a game. Look first half it was quite poor but no one gave up for any amount of time. Got to say DH has
  10. Exactly. People view ready harshly. They had all the tools last season to be part of the squad. They just needed games and they are getting it now. The rough edges are being smoother every game. We had the thread the other day about which is better Moore or Vyner. I had Vyner through the first few games. That said Moore was different class today. Vyner is a bit quick to hit that channel ball for sure. Though I think SW pinned back our outside CBs more than other teams have. Vyner never really got a chance to be in the opposition half today. Think Moore/Kalas would have done simi
  11. The defense is still a worry but they are still missing 3-4 key pieces.
  12. Lamouci for me but Cocu not far behind
  13. I think age is a weird one in football. Paterson for 3 more years is the best of Paterson. We lose sight of it with football finance because we wouldn’t be able to sell him. Not sure he went to Derby for the best interests of the team more so because we bought two younger players in his position. He has beaten them both with DH here and even before he started after he was recalled. Paterson does blow hot and cold but that is why he is at Bristol City and not Leicester City. He can win us a game on our own and I don’t think we have anyone else like that. Easier to sell isn’t the reaso
  14. Your first line is my point. Perhaps we are doing everything we can to get him to sign and he isn’t. The fee we can get after this window will be much lower. As for Paterson, think it is a calmer situation because of his age. Don’t think top championship clubs would be in for him so looking at teams around us or lower championship. He is already here and already a main piece. Perhaps more likely he gets a deal after the window closes as it is one less thing to worry about while the window is open.
  15. Martin and Wells almost has to be the answer but I’d like to see Martin and Weimann for a couple matches and see how that works. Truthfully almost anyone can work next to Martin. Have to hold my hand up and say I wasn’t impressed with the signing(caveat being if Fam goes would be ok). I have however been very wrong. What a player and hasn’t relied on pace his entire career. If he can keep himself fit he is worth every bit of a 3 year contract(2+1) and possibly a couple years more.
