  1. I'm glad it's not just me then! You'd be giving an U10 team a bollocking for some of the things we've been doing from throw ins recently. Over the last couple of months it's been ridiculous at how pedestrian our throw ins/goal kicks are. The movement off the ball is just as important as what the player in possession does. However, players seem to play a pass and then think 'job done', which invariably leads to Baker/Hunt/Williams player a sloppy clipped ball 50 yards up the pitch as it's their only option. This is where I have some sympathy with LJ (assuming these things have been ta
  2. I'd take the £3.5m and Wells for Brownhill, if that's what is on offer. At this time I don't think the loss of JB will majorly impact on our form. Even if he stays, he's almost certain to leave in the summer and every poor/average performance he puts in will no doubt lead to "his heads been turned/doesn't want to get injured", even though his form is already quite patchy. I'd much prefer investing that time in someone who will be here at the start of next season. I agree with @JoeAman08 about JB in a two and that our current three + Morrell should be good enough. As much as Fam
  3. Good job Ann Francke isn't here..."I think Wells + £3.5m for Brownhill represents quite good value. What do you think?"
  4. Identity, Integrity, Ingenuity, Innovation and….Identity "Mark, there's been suggestions that the club currently has no obvious playing identity and that the fans are at a loss when the manager says we need to 'get it back'." MA:
  5. Give them Nketiah you swine. Yeah give me Nketiah you sh*t!
  6. I think with Eliasson's excellent crossing style it we don't necessarily need Fam in there. It's more about the movement/anticipation of the person in the box. They're not high balls cut back from the byline for a centre forward to challenge for in a 50/50. Crosses from the right are whipped into an area, pretty consistently, where a glancing header or getting a toe on it before the defender, can create a decent attempt on target. Hunts clipped crosses, against Stoke for example, do benefit from Fams physical presence and heading power. But someone like Wiemann, who's always on the
  7. I kind of get what you mean...but isn't this statement true about anyone who's ever played the game?!
  8. Another thread title to go with rumour, suggestion, linked.... Kalas to Hull City - Algorithm
  9. Some of you seem to have got off on the wrong foot with @DaveF. You didn't like some of the jokes he told earlier. You've got to chill out, yeah, trust him, this is what he does
  10. When a player brings someone down cynically for a yellow card, the commentator/summariser will say: If it's a veteran..."he's used all his experience there" If it's a youngster..."he's been a bit naive there" Even if the challenges are identical.
  11. Agreed. The triangles are what we should be aspiring to use to make the space to get us forward. However at the moment when we do make that space, the pass is either to slow or our forward players aren't being brave enough to receive it in tight spaces and bring the runners into play. We look one dimensional a lot of the time. But does he need Pack 10 yards in front of him? His runs are often well in excess of 10 yards and then that particular pass becomes irrelevant. I think the problem lies in that the options/movement in front of Webster are poor (I haven't re-watched the
  12. This is one of the most frustrating things for me. We come up against these types of teams quite a lot at home, but it often looks like City are surprised by this and have to work out the best way of opening the opposition up during the game. It's like it comes as a shock and we spend the majority of the game playing sideways and then resort to being more direct when we're chasing a winner/equaliser in the last 20 mins. The management team can be pretty certain how the opposition will line up, so it would be nice to see a much more proactive approach from LJ. Sacrifice the deeper mid
  13. I'm torn between bidding on the OPs item and this...does anyone know Nicky Hunt, who can help me out and make my decision easier?
