  1. It's his movement too though, it can offer something different. Wells up top on his own or Fam. Both can do lone role. Weimann doesn't seem to be able to do that role. Well, we've seen very little of it. But not seen anything to suggest he can. He doesn't like having ball with back to goal. He loves running out wide. So if we sign Wells then we have Wells or Diedhiou as lone striker options. Or Wells and Weimann as partnership option. Just not keen on the Fam and Weimann combination. Not sure Diedhiou and Wells would work either.
  2. Yep. But I'd say it's no coincidence we have kept 2 clean sheets now when going back to 1 up top.
  3. I reckon we may be bringing in one striker. Loan out Semenyo and hope Afobe comes back ready to make it 4 strikers competing. We have Marley Watkins as another option too so enough depth maybe if Afobe comes back well.
  4. But then he might lack strength which was probably his biggest asset to go with his touch and skills. He used his frame to keep players off whilst dribbling.
  5. Bobby's work rate and movement was fantastic though. Palmer has very little movement, and poor work rate. I also don't think he has the mentality to do that role. Wondered if he could but stuggling to see him doing it now.
  6. He was brilliant at times in league one against much inferior opposition. His fitness levels were shocking. I remember a game he came on for 10 mins to see game out and he sprinted once and looked absolutely knackered and then strolled around for rest of the game.
  7. Loaning players out is key to their development. And we usually get around half their wages paid for. Can't think of a bad thing about it as long as they play.
  8. Loan fee I expect. It doesn't make much difference to us as he's out of contract at end of his time there anyway. Probably just Sunderland making sure he's good and fit before having him permanently in the summer.
  9. I think he seemed to be thinking too much. Like he didn't know exactly where to position himself etc. He ran around a lot away at Brentford and Preston. I don't see a lack of effort, but more lack of confidence.
  10. Nothing has clicked yet. Last season he had tried loads of different set ups but I think it was ipswich away where he went to a 4141 and we went on to win it. He ended up sticking with that for most of the next 15 that we won 11 and drew 4 of.
  11. Cheers. Really hope he makes it with us. Has he had much feedback from LJ? Does he feel confident of making it with us? I can see us selling or releasing most of our current wingers in the next few windows. Eliasson for big money. And I don't think LJ fancies the rest of them. Even O'Dowda who used to be one of his favourites he had apparently fallen out with. Watkins and Adelakun clearly not rated as good enough. Pato not really an out and out winger but unless he finds real consistency, he has one year left in summer and will likely be sold or loaned out again imo. There really could be a pathway in that position.
  12. Johnson has not kept a settled team because he hasn't found a formula yet. We have seen in the past 17/18 good run, 15 game unbeaten run last season. He will keep the same side just like his Dad used to.
  13. Could maybe sell in summer back to Italy? Not saying that's what I'd necessary do, but it is an option if he struggles to life in England, struggles to adapt to championship and does not find consistency. Morrell, Walsh, Massengo, obviously Brownhill but he may be sold. We have plenty of quality in that position. And let's not forget Bakinson. Let's see if he can keep this level of performance, maybe even improve on it. Could be down to preseason for him to force his way in.
  14. I think the criticism was harsh of Antoine. It's that Reading performance which did it. But I thought he was ok in a couple of other games and good against Preston. I support him by honestly saying his attributes, which is what he can do, not necessarily what he is doing when he plays. And people laugh or send confused emojis. People can't seem to grasp his age and how good he obviously is for that age. People genuinely believe he is simply awful and does not try.
  15. He has pretty much always played on right for Oldham. That's the way it is nowadays with a lot of lefties. But do you feel he could play in other roles? Obviously left wing but how about attacking midfield or second striker. Or even left wing back?
