  1. In fairness, they haven’t sat down for contract talks with any players, other than to agree short term extensions or exercise one year options.
  2. Yes he is. Got a short term extension but that’s it. His littl’un is about to start school and he doesn’t know where he’ll be. A downside to being a pro....not that it should have any bearing on contract discussions.
  3. It’s about integrating them, playing them when you need them, but not over-relying on them. Morrell and Walsh should have had that this season.
  4. He’s not a DM, his best games were early on when Brownhill played DM as the sacrifice and Massengo played a bit freer. He certainly doesn’t play at the base of the diamond (DM). Yep. Didn’t get on for even a few minutes today. Holden going to a back 3/5 today was quite telling in that he doesn’t see wingers featuring. I wouldn’t have minded seeing Eliasson in that Weimann position tonight though.

    Weimann

    I rate Weimann....as a centre forward. I think he’s been ineffective in most other positions he’s played. Don’t forget he came here to play centrally. LJ reneged on that, but found a place predominantly on the right. Tonight, he was asked to play another role. I’m guessing that Holden wanted his energy to supplement Pato and also Korey. It didn’t work. In the first half, he made 2 brilliant runs that Pato dawdled on and the opportunity was lost. But since his return he’s another who’s looked well off the level.
  6. 4 games in 10 days from Korey played in a role (5122) that exposed him tonight A game too far, was looking leggy v Cardiff late on....tonight it caught up with him. I’m not saying he’s a star, but I think there are reasons why tonight he wasn’t at the level. He did ok tonight, but his sharpness had gone in his touch and his closing down. If others were playing better, he might have got a rest. He needs one. Whether he gets a new contract is gonna be a really tough call. A new manager won’t have any sentiment.
  7. Kalas defended like a defender tonight. Bar one ball he let bounce over his head, he did exactly what I expect of him. Benkovic reminds me a lot of Daniel Agger (not the same level), he’s quite casual on the ball in a good way, but he sticks his head in, always a good sign. Plus good in each box aerially. I thought his awareness of a Wells runs tonight were a good sign too. Vyner looked like a player who has had a year away from this level, and after an encouraging 45 v Forest, has struggled to get back up to speed. I’m fine with that, it’s kinda expected. Benik you can tell he
  8. Why narrow it by looking for a “sort of individual”? Not aimed at you...aimed at MA. That worries me!
  9. Big difference from understanding football and understanding the football business.
  10. Are you still planning a post-match pod, or just going to continue the above pod?
  11. It’s all been very gushing hasn’t it. I wish him all the best, but he’s been sacked for under-performing.
  12. It is indeed. Which is partly my point, to get the right appointment, they might want to change things. If Hughton for example wants to bring in his own Recruitment guy, and Hughton is the right man, then you change your model. The other point was indeed perceived nepotism.
  13. Sorry, I really haven’t seen enough of Hull City this season to give the usual low-down, but here’s their latest line-up v West Brom (lost 4-2) I did the Housemartins jokes last time we played them at home, and there weren’t enough Camberwick Green jokes to link into Gareth (Mrs) Honeyman, nor any players called Pugh or Cuthbert. Here was my last report: I did meet their Manager Grant McCann on holiday in Majorca at the end of the 2013 season, and the first game I took Joe to was Peterborough (h), a 0-3 loss versus Tomlin, Little and Tyrone Barnett, in which McCann wa
  14. No, I’m not saying it is. People do bring people with them, especially in football. The two points I’m really trying to make are: to get the right manager we may need to flex our model the reasons for not achieving the objectives set out this season shouldn’t necessary lie just at LJ’s door. As long as other areas are being reviewed, then that’s good Linking to that, how many of our loans that returned permanently have been successes: Lee Tomlin £3m Adam Matthews (loan again) Tomas Kalas £7m+ Jay Dasilva £2m Kasey Palmer £3.5m Ju
  15. Here’s his profile. the reason I posted it originally was initially re there might be a need to change our model between SL and the new manager....to attract the right new manager. Being a bit cynical, MA when he was appointed felt he needed to change the model, so why not a new manager? He introduced a “head of operations” on day one of his official start date who happened to be someone from Oxford Utd, and someone from his sideline consultancy business, that we all know was working behind the scenes prior to his Official appointment a couple of days after Cotts was sacked
  16. Quite happy for them to go down too. Got away with breaking ffp when they went up.

  18. Let’s beat Hull first
  19. You can talk, you’re his script writer
  20. Yes, I didn’t want to add that to a forum, but yep, it’s out there. I wasn’t sure if he was b-i-l or cousin.
