  1. I can meet at the ground and happy to take. Just let me know
  2. Hi All - same here, will take just the one if going though. Cheers!
  3. Looked very good last night, good touch and awareness, as well as not being shy putting himself about. He did let a few runners go defensively (as did all of our midfield last night...) and cramped up towards the end so not sure if he's physically ready for two games in four days but definitely an exciting one to watch!
  4. Stats obviously only show so much but it's quite telling that Pack and Brownhill barely feature here. From my perspective we're (mostly..) set up and have the players to play a pressing game, moving the ball quickly when we have it, but for some reason if we have Diedhiou in the team we end up lumping it and nobody knows what to do. Players not doing what they're told/making wrong decisions or wrong instructions from LJ?
  5. Have to agree. He's not the best player in the division but far from the worst. Tonight's game really highlighted how little support he gets in the way we play at the moment, more to come with the right/improved players around him
  6. I've only seen the highlights of the Villa game and he did make some brilliant saves, but some of those he only had to make because he didn't deal with the initial effort quite well enough (ie. Pushed it out to the middle of the 6 yard box). That said, the full games I have seen him in I have been impressed. He's obviously a good shot stopper, decent with the ball at his feet and looks to have the right temperament for a keeper. Decision making can be a little hit and miss and his handling could be better but there's a lot there to work with. My view is a L1 loan next year would really see him kick on.
  7. Agree with this post entirely. In my opinion it's this lack of willingness for English players to play abroad and learn how to play different styles of football that has held up back for years. However, with so much more money on offer for young players over here you can definitely understand why they stay and sit on the bench.
  8. Need one ticket if going spare? Can meet at the ground/anywhere on the way. Cheers!
  9. This pretty much sums up my sentiments. In most games he'll do something to impress and look destined for bigger things but he'll also be caught out of position a lot and tends to let too many crosses come in from his side. Good player but can be replaced and probably needs a move to kick on as a player
  10. On paper it looks like the first 11 is slightly weaker but the overall squad much stronger. Hopefully this will help avoid the traditional 2nd half of the season collapse! Looking forward to seeing Eisa properly and Eliasson kick on from last year.
  11. With the way we play now I think we have to be even more selective in terms of any 'creative' player we bring in. A lot of our success this season has been down to the way we have been pressing the ball so much better than last year and bringing in a player with a Tomlin-esque work ethic off the ball could ruin that. Johnson at PNE would get my vote but it would take crazy money to get him in January.
