  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. It's all down to Johnson. Its Johnson's job to get the right coaching staff in.
  5. Bobby Reid Contract

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

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

    We all seem to have different views on Smith and pack. I'm more in favour of Smith, whereas some think pack is better. I have not noticed Smith struggling to cope defensively at all to be honest. On the ball he has been average in a couple of games this season. But apart from that, I think he's been very good. Reading away and yesterday's game, I thought he was quality. Not seen wolves game back yet but heard he played well in that game too. The reason I favour Smith over pack is because he is much sharper at closing down, tackling and so much harder to beat. Pack got caught out a few times yesterday and has been too slow closing down long shots with a few goals this season. I like Pack, and thought he played well yesterday. Pack is more capable of the occasional brilliant pass, like that lofted pass over the defence to diedhiou. And one run he went on where he beat a couple of players. But I think Smith is the more reliable, solid midfielder of the two. I think Johnson is looking to rotate Smith, Brownhill and pack, maybe using oneil in some games too. But I think when there's a week between games, and they're all fit, Brownhill and Smith will be his preferred partnership.

    He might even do a Skuse on us. We must get these players on new contracts.
  9. Jamie Paterson

    Amazing second half performance. I think he can get even better if he can play to that second half standard from the start. Looked better than Lawrence for them I thought.
  10. Team for Tuesday De Ja Vu?

  11. Jonathan Leko....from a Baggies perspective

    I have always disagreed with people saying stick with the same team. The way we play, we need fresh players. I dont think we necessarily have a first choice 11. It depends on fitness and opponents. What I like is we have a settled style and formation.
  12. Two interesting points from this Derby fan. We have a bit of everything. Pace, power, tricks on the wings, no nonsense centre halves. Johnson said he wants to make a complete team and now after 3 windows I think he has what he wants. And the other point he made is that it didn't happen overnight. We have a huge advantage over other clubs, that Johnson is being allowed to build a squad.
  13. Korey Smith

    Think Korey deserves his own thread. As there have been quite a few posts in recent weeks about him not being good enough and people wondering what he brings to the team. Well that's what Korey brings to the team. Absolutely outstanding.
  14. Team for Tuesday De Ja Vu?

    Can't wait for Tuesday. I expect the team to be something like this, if O'Neil is fit: Steele Vyner Flint Magnússon Kelly Eliasson O'Neil Pack O'Dowda Diedhiou Taylor
  15. Are we now serious play off contenders?

    I don't see why not. We have so much quality all over the squad. Once I knew what our squad looked like when the window shut, it was clear to me that we could be right up there. Early days for sure, but Johnson has put together a squad that can be changed from one game to the next and not losing any of it's quality.
