  1. Tammy Abraham set to play for Nigeria

    Big loss for England. He could go on to be the best striker in the country. He's just 19. When harry kane was 19, he was out on loan at Leyton orient. Goes to show how much a player can improve. Tammy has the same kind of mentality as kane to become as good as he want imo.
  2. One of the keys to our successful start this season

    I love Flint, but for me the best defensive performance was home to Millwall with Baker and Wright. You might be right with how Johnson will do it.
  3. Palace at Home

    Home to a championship team would be perfect. More chance of getting through to quarters.
  4. The use of Flint at GK's....

    Never seen this before. Would not be surprised if other clubs start using this tactic. Johnson re-inventing the game. Genius.
  5. Callum O`Dowda

    Him and Brownhill Johnson's best permanent signings. Been saying it for a while they're both gonna be prem players one day, hopefully with us.
  6. Ratings

    Steele 7. Solid, good distribution. Mainly routine saves that he held onto or pushed to safety. Vyner 6. I feel harsh giving him a 6. But although he looked assured and pretty solid in the first half, he had quite a few Brighton moments in the second. But let's face it, he's a kid playing against premier league opposition. Magnússon 7. Suppose it could be an 8. Solid. Looks like a left back. Flint 8. Typical flint. Hegeler 8. Really impressive display. Made a number of tackles. Seemed to win a fair bit in the air. Looks very quick when balls are played through. And of course technically class at bringing it out. Brownhill 8. Gets through so much work. So quick onto loose balls. Nearly scored. Up and down all game. He is better in the middle than out wide. Pack 8. Best performance this season from packy. Did what he does well. Eliasson 7. A few brilliant crosses. We now have a player that can really take a corner. A few bad final balls at the end of the first half. Needs to learn to do something other than quick stepovers and then inswinging cross with his left as in second half Stoke read what he was going to do a couple of times and just stayed on his left foot. Got back well to help out vyner. He clearly has huge potential. Odowda 9. What a talent. Just loves taking players on. Got some decent crosses in first half too, but yeah like people say, he can improve on his final ball or shot. He was moved up front at the end, and was still chasing everything. He always wants the ball and rarely loses it. Taylor 9. Such a clever player. Quality movement, and only realised tonight he has a fair bit of pace. His decision making is spot on. Great composure with his passing. Left or right foot. He works his socks off too. I was thinking if only he could shoot, and then he goes and scores that goal. He did miss 2 one on ones. But he still deserves motm. Diedhiou 8. So glad to say I think he is beginning to look like a good signing. Held it up well. Won some balls against a big defence. Was there to nod home taylor's rebound off the post. Did brilliantly to send Taylor through first half. Unlucky not to set up Brownhill for a 3Rd. Good ball across but stoke defender just touched it away. He looks fitter now too. Missed one on one but keeper made himself a huge target. Not exactly a sitter. Subs. Reid 7 class as ever when he came on. Really looked good alongside Taylor and then odowda when Taylor was subbed. Bryan 7. Great sub bringing him on for eliasson. Helped us defend down the left with shaqiri looking a threat. Countered well and was a real threat going forward. Maybe could have hit target with a good chance that just went wide. EDIT Smith 7. Forgot he came on for taylor. Was not on for long. The most important thing that sub did was move odowda up front who Stoke struggled with on the break. Overall an amazing game and amazing performance. Hard to give the players ratings and I'm sure people might have seen things differently. And maybe it might look a little different looking back with how I rate them. But there is no doubt we deserved to win that. A reserve team pretty much against a strong prem side. Incredible. They had quite a few chances and their finishing was poor, but we looked the premier league side out there.
  7. Yep. Stoke certainly turned it on right at the end of the half. Charlie Adam is playing shit, but brilliant whipped in corners. Impossible to defend against.
  8. Playing well. Missed a one on one where their goalie made himself a huge target. Held it up quite well. Did brilliantly to play in Taylor who also missed a one on one. They look a decent partnership.
  9. Would much rather have seen Magnússon centre back and kelly left back.
  10. Our leaky, porous defence.....

    True. Its like Brentford game. Everyone saying how amazing frankie played and how Brentford had so many chances. But almost all the shots were from distance.
  11. I have thought this about transfers. I don't think Johnson was keen on a few of them like Magnússon and engvall. I heard that Johnson never wanted pembo and as he is an ex team mate of mcallister, it would not be surprising if he chose him. He worked with holden at Oldham, so probably chose him too I reckon.
  12. Well if Johnson does not have the final say on these things, then I'm struggling to work out who does. Do people actually think that our assistant is the only reason we have improved this season? How about looking at our players. We have a so much better squad of players this season. Thats the main reason. Coaching existing players, better recruitment, better tactics, better team spirit without tomlin, experience of last season, there's many possible reasons other than simply we have a good assistant manager. Also maybe Johnson has improved as a manager. Managers improve just like players do. We have a young playing and coaching staff. They're all learning and improving.
  13. It's all down to Johnson. Its Johnson's job to get the right coaching staff in.
  14. Bobby Reid Contract

    Really hope you're right and i'm wrong. He is gonna be some player in a few years I reckon.
  15. Bobby Reid Contract

    I don't think Brownhill has an extra year option. It doesn't say so on transfermarkt website.
