    Jens Hegeler

    Not mobile enough to be anywhere near a championship teams midfield from what I’ve seen.

    I thought he was excellent at CB Fevs. I don’t agree often with LJ but do with his comments on Lloyd’s Tuesdays performance. Lloyd is a rolls Royce of a player and was more aggressive aerially than I’ve seen him and has great pace. Personally see him as less of a liability than Baker at CB who worries the life out of me and low and behold has another injury

    Johnson - No new striker incoming (Merged)

    Was never fit to do one

    Korey Smith

    Korey did himself no favours last night and grabbing the ball that conceded the free kick for their goal was just petulant. Is he out of contract in the summer as maybe that's a factor although it didn't stop Bryan starting. At this stage without Fammy, I'd play Brownhill in behind Weimann and Pack/Smith and COD (although shocking last night)/ Elliason as can't wait another 5 games for Paterson to have his good game. Gives us legs and energy around the park.

    It’s all about opinions and none of us are right everytime as we’d be in football professionally. It’s a forum so people should just respect each other’s view and whilst I thought Walsh was excellent by the same token seen people rave about Marley Watkins which I cannot get.

    How long does LJ have?

    The most worrying part is that yet again he has another sustained horrendous run which he has had throughout managerial career. He just seems incapable of learning lessons from previous seasons. He talks about lack of leaders but who has he brought in to address this issue?? Hunt/Webster look decent and Weimann a steal. However, I’m dismayed to see this morning that a new striker is not a requirement ....if you were there last night then you will know it is. We cannot defend high balls into our box and Nathan Baker has been a liability but yet still remains a starter due to lack of options. We had an urgent need for an upgrade at GK and now have Brighton’s 3rd choice as our number 1. Now I get the fact that our 3 best players wanted to leave but we have spent loads since he came in and if that money was available to other managers would they have invested more wisely than LJ/MA. I found myself watching some of the best football I’ve witnessed in my time following city last season and held my hands up to apologise for doubting LJ the previous season. I so want him to succeed as seems a genuinely nice person but it won’t take much to get the more vocal of our support heard again if we struggle. We have a far weaker team now and to be honest, I fear this could be a long season as last night proved we have squad depth and numbers without sufficient quality. We are still a CB/CF/GK light for me and he’s got 2 weeks of loan market to help himself and us!! Can you prove me wrong to doubt you LJ as I hope so!

    Will Flint celebrate if he scores.

    Well if we concede set plays or corners then there’s a fair chance he will.... Bolton/Forest/Plymouth have all scored due to our inability to deal with set plays & very concerned about Baker who continually gets done and frankly, gives impression he cannot be bothered!!

    Johnson - No new striker incoming (Merged)

    Taylor has had more than enough chances now & if he becomes a regular starter for us then we will be struggling. One ball to Smith cannot gloss over a 3 year contract & he has such a poor touch when we need the ball to stick!! Eisa you have to give more time but thought he’d struggled last night & injuries or further suspensions to Fammy/Weimann will leave us short & exposed so for the life of me I don’t get Johnson’s view we don’t need a striker. We also need a CB and GK and have more numbers now than last season but not the quality. 4 wins in 27 is very worrying & this could be a long season.

    Liam Walsh

    Reasonable 1st half but was outstanding the 2nd half and his range of passing was superb. MOM for me.
  10. Thought Walsh was very good 2nd half so with you there. We have now conceded set plays in last two games and with Boro coming you know that's where we will struggle. No panic but what tonight demonstrated is that whilst we have squad numbers some of the depth we have lacks quality & we are a GK/CB/CF light IMO. Thought Eisa raw whilst Taylor and Watkins were poor. 4 wins out of last 27 is a shocking run and a loan window to ease some of our problems. Djuric looking a weird one now as so many crosses today
  11. We understand 20-year-old full-back Jay Dasilva could be on his to Championship outfit Bristol City on a season-long loan amid interest from Bolton Wanderers.

    Nathan Baker Vs Bailey Wright

    Baker needs to pick his game up as we’ve all seen how capable he is but has been poor for a while now. Saturday he just followed on with poor distribution and got done for the goal scored by Murphy. My biggest issue with Baker is his mental fragility around injuries as how many times have we seen him go off injured and play the following week?? Worried about centre back position as both Webster & Baker have history of injuries and who would be happy with a Wright/Hegeler combination?

    Joe Bryan - Signed for Fulham CONFIRMED

    Bored with all the speculation and no sensible offers. Take the first sensible one of ideally min of £5m but whilst appreciating that it’s a job, I’m really disappointed that Joe hasn’t signed a deal with a release clause that is set at say £5m. I cant believe that someone who has such close links with our community would walk for free by running his contract down as clearly an intelligent bloke but thought he’d want to leave on good terms

    Nathan Baker

    Went off again injured albeit survived to half time but indicated he needed to come off. I hope it's not too serious but slightly concerned about the frequency this happens and IMO need another left sided centre back to come in. Webster looked very good and as others have said take a bow Cameron Pring as outstanding !
