  1. HT 0-1 Norwich dominant as expected but City defending well generally and not playing badly. Hunt and Rowe suffering with not a lot of cover in front of them, Adelakun leaving his runner too often in particular. But we do need to push up from the back and condense the midfield a bit more. Nagy is on his own in the centre with Vyner not contributing too much - we need either Bakinson or Massengo on the pitch to get on the ball. This game isn't lost yet as long as its just the one goal behind.
  2. The simplest solution and you've alluded to it, is to do what some of the best teams in the world do/have done - apply a dollop of shithousery. Under continuous pressure - tactical fouls up the field, take a yellow for the team, when fouled get the physio on the pitch, etc etc. Just break up the game and the momentum. Things that PNE are good at when a goal in front...
  3. I had him down for an assist against Swansea (got the penalty) - its only from my own notes, not from any online sites so 7 could be wrong.
  4. He is just 21 (7th January) and he didn't come through the academy system so had no professional development until he was around 17/18. He is behind a lot of the academy lads in those terms but has learnt very quickly and overtaken a few of them. He needs to have composure when in a scoring opportunity, but I think that will come - hopefully before DH loses patience. When Eliasson was here he scored few goals but was an assist machine with 14 in his last season. We are at the half way point of the season and Semenyo, in a different position and different sort of player, already has
  5. Spot on. Martin Scott wasn't half bad either.
  6. No comment re Vyner in that respect as I've not seen enough of him as a DM, but he did well enough yesterday.. I agree in general with the bold bit (and Johnson had an annoying habit of doing this or getting a player in and then playing him out of position), but the game is littered with young players who started in one position and then had a good career in others. If a player has good all round ability, then most could play a number of positions perfectly well. Vyner may fall into this category and it may turn out to be his best position, but time will tell. If he plays v Norwich,
  7. Exactly. With 7 assists so far (league and cup) and 2 cup goals, Semenyo is undoubtedly an important member of the squad. He just needs to be a bit more composed in front of goal and hopefully he will score more. With some it is a slow process and it appears that is the case with him and DH has been very patient with him and I've questioned how long that patience should last in the past, but given his assists and his general play he's in the team on merit. I can see that he is desperate to score in the league and, as many others have said, once he does there will probably be no stopp
  8. I only saw the second half and PNE had plenty of possession for a long period, but I was quite comfortable watching it - unlike previous games where we were hanging on and I would be waiting for us to concede. The defending and team shape was excellent and there was a bit more movement up top than usual. It was as close to a comfortable win that we've had this season imo.

  10. I only saw the second half so based on that; Everyone 7 Bar; Massengo 8 Mawson 8.5 Vyner 8 Kalas 8
  11. According to Transfermrkt he has played 90% of his career thus far as a DM. But most of the highlights I've seen of him for Monaco and the French age groups, he's played as an AM/CM and sometimes as a 10. Which is what his mother (and his dad in the past) has said. He can turn and hold off players easily, his body position in receiving a pass is a cut above all other players we have (maybe Nagy on a par), and he is very forward thinking if allowed to be. He is KP with tons more energy and strength on the ball. He could play as a DM - but that is a waste of his talent imo.
  12. I've had it in my head for years that the fogged off game was Chelsea ? I remember the day well but how the hell did I get the team wrong !
