  1. Just in terms of stamina. Of course it could be running around and being useless. Sam Allardyce used sprinting stats a lot apparently to tell players if they were working hard enough.
  2. Passes around the corner which the opposing team has to deal with running towards their own goal can be a good pass even if it is to the opposition. For me running stats are probably the most clear stats for how a player has done. Everything else can be misleading. But what they can do is suggest someone is good or bad at something over many games and then people can see why those stats are what they are. But then just watching them would show what they are good and bad at anyway!
  3. Is that the pass to Bakinson? That was a 'successful pass' but was actually a very bad one like you say.
  4. I don't know if Mawson would necessarily be really good in the prem at the moment. He does look very good for us left of a 3. But even for us he's made a few sloppy mistakes. Nothing too major. But do that in the prem and you get punished. That's not really a criticism of his performances for us. He's been very very good. But the prem is a big step up. He has had bad injuries. And is probably getting back to his best still. Probably still getting to 100% match fitness too.
  5. Yep. Kalas said himself he doesn't know if Fulham were interested. They didn't use the buy option.
  6. Baker 5th choice when he's back for me.
  7. Oh yeah for sure. Williams got the work rate and much more. And who knows with Walsh or Morrell. Got some great options.
  8. He did get moved to this box to box role away at Wigan last season after about 20-30 mins. It worked that day but LJ never tried it again. His running around a lot is exactly what makes him the player he is. So it's not really a criticism to say that. His work rate is ridiculous. Now he's in a position where we benefit from that work rate. I see Holden continuing with him in midfield more than up front. Him and Paterson's work rate key to how we play. Its good that Joe Williams is coming back who is also a very very hard worker. He doesn't stop running like our current box to bo
  9. He's helping us as much as we are helping him. We don't seem to get many loans wrong, so I trust Tinman on this one.
  10. Whatever happens I think we will be okay. Our current starting midfield 3 aren't going anywhere. Williams can fill in box to box or holding. Brunt is back up for Bakinson and is hopefully getting fitter all the time after not having a preseason. Ideally we want one or two more to stay out of all the other options.
  11. I am thinking about the players contracts. Taylor Moore they must be desperate to keep hold of, and his contract is up end of the season. So maybe for some reason we are waiting to offer players new contracts. I am hoping that is the case because I rate Walsh and want him to stay.
  12. Weimann might not be a midfielder (apparently!), but he has incredible stamina and so has Paterson. Skinny legs and not very strong the pair of them, but that's why they can run for 90 minutes. That's what Holden seems to want in those box to box roles. The physical presence of Bakinson behind them seems like a nice blend in that midfield. Wells and Martin also put in one hell of a shift up top and it seems we will likely bring both off most games with Diedhiou and Semenyo coming on fresh off the bench.
  13. Good move for him. City clearly believe in him with the length of contract he signed end of last season. He has some real potential I think. Hopefully he can develop like Bakinson did in league 2 last season!
  14. The goal and assist wasn't really relevant to his overall general performance. Just a big bonus, but not why he had a good game. It was mainly that he offered an attacking threat and wasn't weak defensively in one on ones. Although the opposition on that side maybe suited him more than some. He did a solid enough job on them most of the time in the last 2 league games. I think we look harder to counter attack now, unless we lose it in silly positions of course. That helps for a player like Rowe massively. He has the necessary cover. Maybe having 3 mobile centre backs is what mak
  15. At least 3 to go for sure. Holden likes a smaller squad of players. Weimann is actually looking effective in midfield because of his work rate. Paterson was superb second half today I thought. Williams will be in this side, I am sure of it. Brunt is cover for Bakinson and maybe still behind fitness wise, but he will be an important player in that defensive midfield role. That is the obvious midfielders that will be here. I have always said Palmer and Nagy will be off on loan or permanently. I think they are behind all those in this system. So I think it's at
