    Semenyo recall

    The only way I can see him being recalled is if a L1 club is wanting to take him and play him. With the recent attention it could be plausible.

    Webster’s value

    I have been saying it since the summer when they were quoting 20m for him. Him and Kelly are so similar in experience, age and position that it would be mental to get less for Kelly than Brentford do for Mepham. One thing possibly going against Kelly is playing him at LB where the value tends to be lower.

    Mo Eisa?

    Part of me wants to believe this but the other side of me think he will be 25 by summer. He is raw in ability but much older than eliasson at the same time. I don’t think for one second it was a signing we should not have made but at the same time for the money and his age we need to try him at the highest possible level and get him going. I think we will know where he stands by the end of the summer transfer window. If he needs a loan next summer I am not sure he will make it for us. Also switching formation(dropping a striker) hasn’t helped him. What the club needs to be mindful of buying a player in their mid 20s is that the club is growing rapidly and can easily leave players behind. Even this season we are miles ahead of this time 2 years ago. Bailey Wright, matty taylor djuric all mid 20s and had potential left but the club outgrew them to an extent(went from sure starters to squad players struggling for minutes).
  4. Think it because Niki does not aim for a head on the sides. He generally goes centrally with his long kicks. Most goal kicks last year Frank was asked to put the ball on Bryan or Flints head. 2-3 times out of 10 the ball would go out of play. This is more noticeable to fans than a long kick down the middle. Frank did not have woeful distribution. Think Niki however is better. Also Niki is much quicker to get the ball out of his hands. Plus I think he throws a few more out as well. @Davefevs mentioned to a mate at the game that I wasn’t sure I’d seen Kalas sprint after he had to pick up the pace at one point in the second half. Very good on the ball but won’t bring it out or hit 40 yard balls very often. What he does do is pop it into people instead of a more lazy slow pass. Would be interesting to see BW next to Webster for a bit(not saying it should happen just interesting) to see how similar they are. Watching BW against Stoke and Huddersfield they look similar players. Webster is absolute class. Think opposition probably aim more towards him than Kalas but he always holds his own defensively and aerially. Also pops passes into people. Imo he has the best vision in the side. Also as two footed a player I have seen for awhile. What a talent and glad we have been keeping him fit.

    Loan Watch: 2018/19

    Yea but I don’t recall us ever singing that one pf our players is a ****! It is bad when we sarcastically cheer a player off but that is a new low from Rotherham fans imo.

    This time last year....6 points better off (Merged)

    This. While the football has been awful at times and many were done with LJ(I was at that point for a bit), we have been loads more consistent this season. Other than Wolves, every side lost a few on the bounce or had a 4-5 winless streak. Considering the firepower we lost it was always going to be tough this season. I’d think most would see us as overacheiving. I had us on about 5 points less than last season and about 12-14th. So atm we are doing better than I expected. The problem is SL says he wants to be a playoff side this season every chance he gets. Hell we’d all like that but I am not sure it is wise to place that expectation on a side that at best can scrape into the top 10 financially(at best). Other teams have done it on lower budgets but not sure any of them said publicly that was the aim.

    Marlon Pack

    I forgot to mention it but just after we went 2-1 up we went a bit flat. During a throw in in front of me Marlon was telling Dasilva, COD and Webster to up the tempo. Now it never really did pick up again but was nice to know Pack was not satisfied with 2-1.

    3 Chelsea Loanees & Our Momentum

    Did say at least on the wages tbf. If I was guessing 25k Kalas 15k Palmer 10k Dasilva Thought Palmer was OOC so will add to the value but don’t think he’d be mega money either but close to our record fee possibly(4-5m?). It is good we have this relationship with Chelsea but if we do want to sign their players it will cost. I hope we try to take advantage of the loan situation. Will be costly but we have not had many duds come from Chelsea recently

    3 Chelsea Loanees & Our Momentum

    Not sure it would be as much as that. Palmer in last year of contract I think. Agree terms and pay compensation. Say 1m? Kalas would be the expensive one and would be competition for his signature. Say 6-8m? Dasilva I reckon is in the 2-3m range tops. No way we have an option to buy a LB as our record transfer imo. So even on the expensive side 12m. Possibly as low as 10m. Wages for all 3 I imagine would be the hard bit. Probably 40k between the trio at least. Though if we sell Kelly and get a few off the books that would be tidy business.

    Marlon Pack

    I did notice that. Both he and Josh both dropped deep less than usual. Also they seemed to do it between Hunt and Kalas when they did. Almost making a back 3 with Kalas central and Pack right. No need to get the ball off Webster. Was nice to see
  11. JoeAman08

    Next 6 games.

    L W D D W L 8 from 18. Would probably see us fall back to 10th or so but would not be awful. If we can stay fit and add a striker(someone to push Fam and make his spot not so comfortable) and get a few extra goals then that can change. If we do get those 8 points we be at 49 points as well. Which is a point from usually safety. For me in this league you never know. So comfirming safety for me is always an acheivement.

    Marlon Pack

    Thought he was ok. Not as bad as some of his performances this season but nowhere near his best from the start of the season. Good hard work today and part of the winning side. Was 7/10 for me as were most
  13. JoeAman08

    Forest

    Not getting ahead of myself. Could either be a great time to play them or awful. Idk. Good news for us with their changes the have to make but could give someone a chance to play and they take it. I will still take a point against them.
  14. JoeAman08

    Matty Taylor

    Like what Taylor brings but seems to do it better off the bench. I am not one that says there needs to be 2 up top at home but I’d probably start Taylor with Fam next time we play a side that wants to sit back and defend deep.
  15. JoeAman08

    Substitutions

    Thought he should have come off at HT but did think he was subbed because of the mistake but honestly I would have pulled him out after that. Kelly looked really casual today and I’d drop him for a bit. Dasilva been more than good enough. Nothing agaisnt Lloyd who has been generally solid but his first full season. Its the championship and just got through a trying month. Think he needs a break perhaps more mentally than physically Great subs and brave to do all three. Thought Palmer should have come on before the goal. Looked stripped and ready amd was going over some notes but then sat back down. May have had no effect on the goal but thought he’d liven up the crowd and perhaps the other players(won’t say I expected that good in his first go).
