  1. Rowe at lb so we can play Dasilva up in midfield and drop eliasson from natural position? Then play brownhill CAM and none of our hundreds of attacking mids?
  2. City18


    Not defending the comment and absolutely the majority of Chelsea fans aren't racist, however I do believe the Chelsea 'headhunters' have a history of support to the national front don't they? A club that does have more of a reputation for racial prejudice than other teams?
  3. Does this mean when I purchase a shirt Marlon pack won't come with it anymore?
  4. 4 straight reds and 2 second booking reds in a career starting in 2009 doesn't sound terrible does it?
  5. Based of forums current striker expectations I'd expect at least 3? Who's head should I be after? Ashton? Johnson? Nketiah?
  6. His goal to minute ratio for last few seasons were: Stoke last season - 9 in 3031 mins or roughly 1 in 3.75 (12 goals a season form) Wolves 17/18 - 6 in 697 mins or roughly 1 in 1.2 (36 goals a season form) Bournemouth (prem)16/17 - 6 in 1661 mins or roughly 1 in 3 (15 goals a season form) Bournemouth (prem) 15/16 - 4 in 938 mins or roughly 1 in 2.6 (18 goals a season form) Wolves - 10 in 2129 mins or roughly 1 in 2.3 (19 goals a season form) Wolves - 13 in 1798 mins or roughly 1 in 1.5 (30 goals a season form) Pretty grim reading if you ask me . He's maybe not had the best 6 months at stoke but give the guy a chance! Proven at this level? Averaging 18.5 goal a season form in the championship, Yes! Proven at prem level? Stats suggest yes! Stokes forum criticising last few months performances? Maybe, therefore write him off obviously! Good enough for bristol city? 100%, welcome Benik!
  7. After a decent loan in 2018 stoke were happy to pay 12 million for him this January, how bad can he be? He also was top scorer with 9 for a poor stoke squad last season, of which no one performed well! Give him a chance in a team with players who try hard rather than turn up uninterested, just to get a premier league wage like at stoke and imagine we have a very different player
  8. People saying he was a one season hit, he scored an average of just over 1 in 3 in the premier league last season (5 goals in 1422 mins of football) and also got a further 2 assists in this playing time which isn't bad at all playing for a team who struggled badly in the division last season. Is exactly what we need and is proven to work well in LJ formation! Further to this, he is certainly more proven than he who must not be named from arsenal! A front 2 of Reid and Semenyo, with Eliasson, Palmer and Weimann behind could be deadly if the tactics can be sorted!
  9. This has gone on so long now, even if he does somehow sign I think I'll boo
  10. Announce the return of bas savage already
  11. Please no, we already have one striker better than Diedhiou in Weimann at the club who gets stuck out wide instead of utilised through the middle where he plays his best football. I hope to god if we somehow manage to sign Nketiah, one of the most promising forwards in the English league that we don't also stick him out wide to chisel Diedhiou into the team again so we can continue to play hoofball this season. Drop the carthorse and play two quick young energetic strikers instead!
  12. I am concerned that Johnson has built a squad of players that will provide an option A - Z, but not built a team to play a set way. We have about 6 creative midfielders to try a number of set ups and combinations, we will try 1 striker, 2 strikers, passing out from the back, quick gk distributions to set up the counter attacks, long ball route 1 stuff, possession football but he doesn't seem to know what he wants us to do. Think another season of chopping and ever changing tactics and formations is on the cards again this season sadly
  13. Think he didn't have much of a chance to cover himself in glory yesterday tbf. But I saw nothing yesterday to suggest brownhills worth 20 mill, 10x transfer fee being reported before the game in the concourse that we paid for Bentley, or odowda worth in excess of 5 mill, 2.5x Bentley fee etc etc remember its just 1 game and likely our hardest home game of the season! Things he did well: Came far off his line in first half to assist moore and when under pressure cleared straight to row z of the lansdown. No nonsense trying to play the ball when the option wasn't on On multiple occasions rushed to edge of box looking for the quick release counter, only to find outfield players jogging back up field looking the wrong way. Not at fault for any of the goals. I honestly think on reflection with maenpaa and Bentley as our 1 and 2 gk, with wollacott oleary and gilmartin too that this is our strongest position. Arguably 3 players already championship standard or better for 1 place in the team
  14. Clearly not ready or doesnt trust him otherwise would have surely brought on yesterday
  15. Got the impression he had a decent pre season tbf, deserves it more than pato
