    Andreas Weimann Utter Class

    How do you do that?

    Said it after Shrewsbury friendly and after Plymouth game. He looks a lot better at centre back than full back. What impressed me second half when holding on, quite a few times we would push up and catch them offside. No sitting back inviting pressure. Him and Webster seemed to have a good understanding. Early days to know for sure, but I am impressed so far.

    Andreas Weimann Utter Class

    Johnson has to get huge credit. It's so hard to find a goalscorer, and they usually cost a fortune. Yet Johnson seems to find ways of getting them in. Only Diedhiou cost a lot of money, and he will make us a profit if we were to sell him. Tammy on loan, Taylor for 300k who played a huge part in keeping us up, Reid converted into striker and now Weimann for 2 million. Excellent business, and what an engine he has on him.

    He is a kind of bigger and stronger version of Wagstaff. I personally think he does a job for the team and can play in different roles. A million is not much money, so I am quite happy with him.

    Lloyd Kelly

    Didn't Brentford reject 15 million for Mepham? Well I wouldn't accept that for Lloyd either. Mepham is a superb defender, and are both potentially high end prem players in the future.

    Lloyd Kelly

    Is he already our best player? Absolute perfection in almost everything he does. Decision making absolutely spot on every time it seems. Incredible talent. I think he is equally brilliant at left back or centre back. I much prefer Pisano in the middle to full back, so Johnson made the right choice swapping them imo. Kelly is a joy to watch wherever he plays. Wouldn't surprise me if he did a brilliant job as a holding midfielder too. He has the technique, reading of the game, pace, strength, nothing the kid can't do.

    Pisano actually looked really good against Plymouth at centre back, but because of the result, he got criticised on here like Walsh who also played well. Can he do it at this level though? Big risk from LJ, considering Kelly played so well Saturday.

    Korey Smith out for 5-6 months

    I've been saying all summer that Johnson is an obvious signing considering the type of players he is, LJ has worked with him previously, plus he has a year left on his deal. If we do sign him then surely we have to go 433/4141. Play Pack in deep lying role and play Josh and Johnson box to box. We have a number of wide options so play Weimann up top/ Diedhiou when he's back, and 2 out and out wingers.

    I think changing to a 433 would help with forward passing options. It is so much easier to pass the ball in that system. I really don't get why Johnson isn't playing it. I don't think we lacked movement, we just couldn't get players into space as our wide men come narrow and it gets all too congested.

    Da Silva

    But why can't we play to our strengths? It was clear that Pisano's selection was only to have a bit of a physical presence in our box when defending set pieces, and he isn't even very good at that anyway, like when he let Flint have a free header. Downing might be 34, but he's still quick and Pisano couldnt cope with his pace. And we had no one to go on the outside of Paterson. Joke of a selection really. I said after Shrewsbury friendly that Cameron Pring looked far better than Pisano at left back. I'm not saying Pring is the answer, but surely that friendly showed Pisano is not good enough at left back. And all the games at right back shows he lacks the pace, stamina and concentration to play anywhere in our side. I actually think he looked more comfortable at centre back as at least he doesn't have to run much in that position, but then it wasn't like Plymouth really attacked us much so was generally an easy game for him.

    Loan Watch: 2018/19

    Smith had a great game according to Tranmere fans.

    Thanks for the advice, but I already go there. Very good job they do don't they. Pack was very poor today. His lack of pace really showed when their players got past him and away from him like he wasn't there. On the ball he was slow, and was sloppy when releasing it. Just because he is Marlon Pack, doesn't mean I have to pretend he played well.

    Lee Johnson - Time To Go

    I have had the same opinion for a long time. If we are down there looking like we could well go down, then yes he will have to go. Until then I believe in what he is trying to do, so lets see if he can do it. If LJ does go this season, who do people want us to bring in? Dean Smith only good realistic option I can think of, and that's if he would want to come to us.

    Yep, was very poor today. Not seen him play that badly for a while. Korey much better and no coincidence we looked far worse after his injury.

    Thought Pack was awful. Got caught many times and not anywhere near his levels on the ball either. 5 for me.
