  1. Yes Major.....next two months will map out our season I recon. Walsh and Williams returning could make a difference.
  2. Why put our best player in an unfamiliar position? Won't do anything to improve his game - in fact it may set him back. He must stay where he is and he will get even better. I would try Fammy at CB - he comes back for set pieces and wins lots of balls and looks quite comfortable back there.
  3. People on here talking about dropping him! Basically, he has become our best and most important player and the type of player that we have been missing in that role in midfield for years. I would go as far to say that if he has a bad game, the team underperforms...as per last night. It would be madness to drop him and the best thing for him to do is play another game asap. I can't see him playing that poorly again and he needs to prove it as soon as possible.
  4. He never looks very committed - I think that's the sort of player he is - bar his flashes of skill he seems quite slow and ponderous to me although I am sure he isn't. Tbh I prefer hasslers and chasers up front but Fam just isn't like that. I think that sometimes it makes him look like he isn't bothered which may not be the case.
  5. Its almost like we have 3 managers. Taking nothing away from Dean who has been great, I think a major part of our transformation has been due to the 2 new coaches who are clearly very good at their jobs with strong personalities. I am sure that have a serious input into the team selection and tactics for every game. A good thing I feel and something that was lacking under Lee's authoritarian leadership.
  6. Yeh I think Dean may take the softly softly approach but I have a feeling the two coaches may be abit more vocal. Whatever they did or said...it worked and that's all that matters.
  7. And a manager and two quality coaches laying into you at half time
  8. Wouldn't read too much into this......neither side is the first 11. Plus Villa have spent nearly £200M on players over last two years compared to what we have spent. Bound to be a difference. I would be more worried of it were our first team against another Championship team.
  9. No no....the last thing we want is Bakinson playing in an unusual position and if he has a mare it could seriously mess up his confidence.
  10. Let me explain....Hunt and Rowe are not really attacking wing backs in the style of Elliason and Dasilva. Don't think I've ever seen them run at defenders. Not moaning, happy to keep it solid.

    Width?

    So today we played with no attacking width really and with two more safe and defensive wing backs in Rowe and Hunt. Dasilva, Eliasson and Sessegnon may well add an attacking option down the flanks but possibly at the cost of a more secure defensive unit. I'm not too bothered about attacking wing backs although they do make for exciting football, and would be happier to win without them if it makes us more solid. A difficult one for Dean to sort probably.
  12. Yeh....big gamble starting Palmer in the big games...but if he can add pressing and tackling to to his undoubted skill set he would be first on the team sheet. So tempting to start him.
