  1. Very simple-he needs top 6 to be given another summers transfer window. This division is weaker this year and we have invested fairly heavily. Johnson has had enough time and money to not be putting in piss poor performances like this... I’m fuming at this missed opportunity
  2. if He had consistency he’d be a prem player-must be so frustrating to manage never knowing if he’s going to turn up or not!
  3. Snake hips is Certainly an enigma isn’t he. The fact derby sent him back suggests he’s been on one of his inconsistent runs but you can’t argue with today’s impact! Does show poor planning from Johnson having him back though
  4. Not many more but my point is that this wasn’t one of them! I couldn’t defend any of the performances in the 4 game losing streak and I am losing patience. just feel Johnson deserves one more window and a shot at top 6-if he doesn’t achieve there will be no excuses and we part company in the summer
  5. No it wasn’t that bad-the loss was down to individual mistakes (Bentley, hunt, Kalas and Williams). We completed well with 10 men, didn’t look like conceding and constantly probed against a very good team. Obviously they picked us off in the end but we gave it a good go. with a couple of additions and cutting out of these defensive mistakes I still feel this squad can go on a run and make the play offs. The bed wetters only see the result though don’t they..
  6. Brownhill has been very poor of late-suspect he knows a bid is coming so had lost focus. He’s a player of great energy but Lacks the touch to become a top midfielder
  7. Really good watch this, what an engaging switched on player! think he’s got a bit of an axe to grind with Johnson (for not playing him and taking his precious Steve’s job!) great player tho and he’s bang on about people’s reaction to signing him vs how they feel by the time he’s left-must be pleasing to be dishing out humble pie all the time
  8. Has he though, both lampard and Cocu don’t fancy him and his deal was too hot for us to get involved in, feel like we dodged a bullet with him. Not sure if it’s attitude or talent but you can’t say he’s made the step up imo
  9. Big step up from league one to championship-lots of players that score freely in league one but struggle with the physicality of the championship. Matty Taylor, baldock, Marriott etc We are trying to make the step up to the next level and need a striker who influence the play and score goals-like afobe was!
  10. So we either need to change the way we play or somehow replace the attributes that afobe was bringing to the table: Hold up play-I don’t think there is anyone in the squad that can get hold of the ball and keep it to allow runners time to catch up with play. Fammy simply doesn’t have the touch for it. This attribute would need to be brought in from free agent market. running into channels-this can be replaced with the likes of wieman and semenyo so no real issue here. finishing/movement in the box-again we don’t seem to have this in the squad-fammy and Weimann far too profligate, free agent market. In summary if we want to play the same way we need to get a striker in urgently that can hold the ball and finish chances. The alternative is to play like we did during the league cup run when fammy was injured-Just not sure who can play the false 9 (Reid role, perhaps smodicks) with Palmer, Ellison, COD and Semenyo playing off him. wouldnt like to be in Johnson’s position but I guess his job is to solve such issues and then sign a proper replacement in Jan
  11. As always he wasn’t as bad as this forum said in the last 2 seasons and he isn’t as good as it’s saying now. Always been a decent CB at this level
  12. On pack he needed to be moved on and was best for all parties. Whilst we will miss his character, work rate and Ariel presence he is the slowest midfielder in the league pace wise and slowed the play down too much. Johnson rightly identified that and replaced with Nagy to increase our tempo. What is disappointing is the timing, assuming this wasn’t a knee jerk reaction from the Leeds game (pack was awful) then could we have not shipped out in the summer and got Nagy in earlier? Appreciate it often doesn’t work out like that but pre-season was basically a waste of time not we have changed personnel/formation! Club legend that was at the heart of a great few years for us but it was time to thank him and move on. Pleased that he’s had a pay rise so will get some sort of payday.
  13. Lansdown confirmed the fee was £20m. Believe that was the upfront cost and there are a few add ons-not really hard to grasp is it pal? the Torquay signings was a joke (too subtle for you clearly) and we were considering Hemed (he was on the list) the fact we didn’t sign him doesn’t disprove that I’m afraid. You still bitter because of that large slice of humble pie and had after saying I was making the Webster to Brighton transfer up? Sitting a bit heavy is it?
  14. We have now turned into a transitional team, we may be all the better for it next season but there’s no way we the players will bed in and challenge this season. Shame because it’s a relatively easy division this year
  15. Games are won and lost in both boxes-at the moment we lack the proven quality to keep clean Sheets and score more than 1 a game. If we don’t get a quality centre back and striker then we will finish in the bottom half regardless of how good our midfield is
