  1. Thanks as always @Olé for a balanced, measured review. I always find your assessments detailed and fair- it’s opinions after all- and although I know we’re in a results business, there is at least some degree of improvement vs the Wigan game. Barnsley becomes a must win game IMO given how toxic it could get- but when you strip everything back, and look at the bigger picture- we’re 1 point off the play offs, we’re consistently in the top 1/2 of the championship and in my 25 years of watching us, we’ve been in far worse positions. by no means am I an LJ die hard, but equally it’s always worth remembering the grass isn’t always greener. 19 huge games left, in a league where results are always unpredictable- for me I want to get behind the team, and see where we end up.
  2. I take it all back. give LJ a 10 year contract
  3. Stinks of a Garner winner for the Latics and then 3 minutes of “we were a bit slow today” “we couldn’t quite get going” “we need to strengthen” “It’s the refs fault”
  4. Nagy for Massengo Is such a negative switch in a game we really should be looking to win.
  5. Pipe dreams, are good dreams. And that is what I want.
  6. “He’s an £8m player in 8 a side games” Semenyo “We’re Premier league in training” multiple times “I’d of loved to put myself on for the last 10 minutes to see that game out” post Barnsley away “I thought he looked like a rolls Royce” After Jens Hegelar debut
  7. Don’t get me wrong, Antoine’s a lovely bloke, but should he playing championship football....... @Shtanley sorry in advance.
  8. It’s on Instagram....
  9. WBA he was dragged after 45 mins as well, and Leeds- well we’re a new team since that game with the changes made in personnel. He was instrumental vs Birmingham, Boro, Charlton, and many other games where he featured. you build a team around him, you don’t punish him to make room for COD etc IMO. his last appearance vs Sheff Wed away he came on, and was played Left of a 3 with COD central.
  10. This is make or break for LJ IMO. He bombed out Tomlin and got a tune out of his “trusted team” to finish off the season where we stayed up with some good form. My concern is he, like his Dad, CANT keep doing this. He stated “KP needs a full pre season with me” he’s also stated “I have the final say on transfers” so something simple doesn’t add up here.
  11. If this happens. And we have COD stay in our squad then I think LJ becomes indefensible. “we need one to open the door” Well you have him, and his understudy is Szmodics. COD is not the answer.
  12. Bentley Hunt Kalas Moore DaSilva Massengo Palmer Smith Elliason Deidiou Szmodics ATTACK THE HELL OUT OF EVERYONE at home.
  13. I remember being shot down for saying how Pack was always taking the flack for him. Give me Pack over Nagy Brownhill every day of the week.
  14. This isn’t good enough. This depth and quality of squad shouldn’t be performing like this. The team selection, shape, and complete lack of identity is now surely under serious question from SL. I’ve been a big LJ fan, but I worry he’s going to be under some real pressure now in the next 3 games as we wait for January. Szmodics, Palmer, Rhodri all not even in the match day squad and we look as weak as ever up front so the changes can be either Semenyo or COD. HUGE 45 minutes coming up.
  15. Wait until COD comes on to change the game for us.........
  16. Sammy Szmodics has had more minutes in the media content than on the pitch. Are we cross charging his wages for FFP?
  17. He’s championship proven..... British and championship proven- hunt and Weimann. you could argue that makes sense as Weimann comes after hunt, as does championship proven. we’re splitting hairs here.
  18. They got 45 mins away to the best team in the league, with Bailey Wright and COD in defensive roles....... so they deserve a decent run I agree!
  19. Maybe you should of carried on reading- I said “british and championship proven”
  20. Fielding (promotion and disposed of everyone we looked to replace him with) Ayling Flint Webster Little Bryan Smith Pack Freeman Wilbrham Tammy double winners + Tammy and Webster for me.
  21. I feel sorry for Kasey. we heard last season that he would only be signed IF LJ could have a full pre season with him- this didn’t happen and he was unveiled on the famous roof a few days before we started our season. After the whole team horror show vs Leeds, he was then praised by LJ at Birmingham for completing 90 minutes, and was instrumental in that game (Afobe debut) and assisted the Rowe goal. I was at both Derby and Birmingham and he was starting to slot in nicely to the team, but since then it’s been inconsistent run outs, and I think he is a player who needs to be played and given a run in the team. yesterday, he like many others was poor, but let’s look at where he was initially played- Left of a 3, with COD central- that made no sense to me and with just Fam ahead of him, he was always going to be isolated.
  22. Too add to this we have Paterson returning in January to further add to our already large squad. we seem to have so many players who do the same thing, yes our main threat statistically- Elliason can’t be fitted into a system......
  23. Spot on @Olé His attributes on paper (as previously mentioned it’s not played on paper) are everything you want- tall, quick, etc. But he rarely drives us forward, creates anything nor does he seem to have the football brain to be part of the squad. Ive never rated him, he has always frustrated me and I’m amazed it’s taken this long for others to really see this. the fact he started today didn’t surprise me, but instantly frustrated me- and the early chance summed him up. The fact he then stayed on for 90 minutes was quite remarkable and must serious harm morale of others, like Szmodics, Massengo, Nagy, Palmer etc. sadly I can’t see anyone wanting him, nor bidding for him.
