  1. True. But then it could be argued when Maenpaa is hitting it long to Diedhiou, Diedhiou can only be expected to win less than 50% of the balls with defenders often all over him. And also a long ball by a goalkeeper or any other player can be a good one even if it doesn't find our player. Forcing a throw in opposition territory or winning a second ball from balls that are put into good areas are sometimes better than a long ball that finds it's man. This is why we can't really go on just stats.
  2. Stats can be misleading. Although there some interesting one there, Fielding had Flint on the right wing to kick to. How much easier is it for a goalie to kick to a player that wins about 95% of his headers. Yet Frankie would still not manage to find his man often by over hitting those balls.

    Mo Eisa?

    I saw Mansfield fans think he's going there. Surely he can step up to league one seeing he did so well in league two in a bottom half side.

    Kalas / Webster

    Pisano had 2 great games there too against Plymouth and QPR. I'd look to move Baker on. Must be one of our highest earners and the only centre back who has looked dodgy this season. Even Kelly who has not played there much looked superb against Brentford in the middle. We have Moore and Vyner returning next season too. Let's clear the pathway.

    Watching U23 and U18 matches

    They don't even show the goals anymore on the site. Pretty poor really

    Gary O’Neill

    We've made better signings

    Gary O’Neill

    Yeah maybe. But giving a 33 year old a 2 year contract was a big gamble, especially making him our highest earner. Not having a go at the club for any bad signings as I think we have made so many good ones since then, that it shows we have learnt and improved in that area.
  8. Thought he was poor. Did a couple of good things in the second half, but the amount of times the ball seems to get stuck under his feet, or he falls over the ball. Bolton were so weak down that side and a better player would have taken advantage of that. I can see he is decent on the break away from home, but I don't think I have seen him play well at home when playing wide.

    This time last year....6 points better off (Merged)

    I don't see why we can't get in the playoffs. We have amazing depth to our squad now and have a solid defence and top goalie. We are very hard to beat.

    Jack Hunt

    I've now come to the conclusion that Hunt is an excellent signing. 1.7 million in today's money for an experienced championship player who has many years left. I was kind of questioning it when it seemed Eros had the right back spot. I was thinking we could have just kept Vyner as back up to Eros if Eros is going to be first choice. Well Hunt has come back and really improved his game. I liked what I saw in his previous run in the side. But there were 4 or 5 bad performances and he needed to find some consistency. He has looked defensively solid and looks even better than he has previously when going forward. He is a superb crosser of the ball. He had an easy game yesterday as Ameobi was pretty useless at tracking him. I thought if we had someone with a bit more magic than Weimann in front of him then we could have caused them a lot more problems down that side.

    Gary O’Neill

    So we signed him when he had this problem. Someone who was about 33, with an injury problem we gave a 2 year contract and made our highest earner. Glad I don't think we'd make that kind of mistake now.

    Marlon Pack

    Agree. Webster made quite a number of bad passes yesterday. But otherwise he was very good in defensive duties. Bit of a one off for him with his passing like you say.

    Marlon Pack

    Pack has really struggled this season imo. He does not look in the same class as a number of those players when passing in triangles. I gave him a 5 out of 10 yesterday. I have been very positive about his performances in the past. But I have to say what I'm seeing. Too many misplaced passes and too many bad decisions. He has to turn and go back too often as he hasn't the skill to move it forward. It will be interesting to see what happens if Korey returns the same player. I have read a few comments saying Korey struggled when returning last time from a long injury. Well he didn't at all. He came straight back in and was as good as ever. And with our interest in another defensive midfielder in Williams, will Pack be in our side by Feb. I'm not so sure. LJ has always liked his sharp, mobile midfielders.
  14. Pack gave it away a lot today. After seeing Josh play that role last week, I am much more impressed with what Josh can do there. The speed he was moving the ball and always moving forward was very impressive. I don't think Pack has been the same player without Korey this season.
  15. I thought we played well enough in the end today. We did absolutely dominate and had loads of chances. The only poor performances were Pack and Weimann imo.
