  1. How does eveyone think we might do? I wouldn't be shocked at a slow start to the season, lots of new faces to integrate, so don't think it will be until the second half of the season we fully hit our stride. Strengthed and improved in vital areas only missing a CB, however Moore, Baker and Wright to fighting it out to play alongside Kalas is not a bad second option. A good number of exciting signings and on paper I feel this team is stronger than the one that finish last season. If we can get the best out of Afobe I feel we can sneak into the playoffs this season, so I'm going for 5th for us.
  2. With every transfer there is some risk and the risk with Reid is, can he reproduce that season again with us?. On a positive note, having both Reid and Weimann on the pitch together could cause havoc with their movement.
  3. Patersons biggest problem is he just holds onto the ball too long or tries to take everyone on himself. If he cuts that out and was abit more streetwise with the ball you'd see an instant improvement with him. If the penny finally drops for him he could be a very good player.
  4. Totally agree and it was reflected on the pitch yesterday. Some things (like multiple free roaming forward players, amongst others) he was trying wasn't working in pre season and again, didn't work yesterday. Just wondering if he's trying to be too clever or perhaps we simply don't have the players for what he's trying, probably a mix of the two, most likely.
  5. I'd assume if LJ gets to spend a large portion of the Webster money on players then there will be an expectation from the board of a top 6 finish. Can't imagine finishing 8th again or lower would go down well. Lets hope he spends the money wisely.
  6. Agree, ideally you'd want Palmer in the hole behind a front two. That's where he performs best imo.
  7. No, probably not, but feel a bit better getting it out of my system
  8. ... awful, awful tactics first half. Showed far too much respect first half and clearly setup defensively. Both Dasilva and Hunt during the first 30 minutes were clearly told to hold back with niether making runs past O'Dowda/Weinmann. This massively hurt us as those out wide had no support which forced us to go centrally and made it so easy for Leeds. Slow, ponderous and unsure what to do when we won the ball back in defense meant we struggled to play out from the back almost like they didn't know if to attack or not which killed any chance of a counter attack. This often led to a long ball up to fammy. Contrast that to leeds who as soon as they won the ball knew exactly what to do and got into positions to allow them to play out. When that failed they knew they could just hit it to the channel's out wide knowing there would be a player there to chase/recieve it. Diedhiou up top on his own at home, again? Lee, please, stop.... please. I really feel sorry for the bloke, no one within 20 yards of him. So he wins the header, whose he meant to head it too? Has LJ not learnt from last season? What was worse was this wasn't fixed at half time, once Weimann was moved up top later on to support Diedhiou, we started to win it back up top as there were players to pick up the headers and bits and pieces. Honestly Weimann is full of running, having him or a new striker buzzing around Diedhiou is the way forward if your using him to play as a target man. By the time Lee had fixed his tactics and team the game was already lost. On a positive note, liked the look of Taylor Moore, a few maurauding runs forward when he was allowed to attack in the second half. Looks promising.
  9. The window closes 8th August at 5pm, we still have roughly two weeks left and I wouldn't be surprised if deals didn't get complete until the last week, I'd imagine this is likely for most clubs.
  10. Selling grounds are fine but I think it does need regulating and conditions put in place. A good start would be the ground cannot be sold until the EFL has appointed someone to value the ground to determine its market value. Or instead, the club must provide details of the valuation to the EFL (ie who valued it and how they came to that valuation). This would ensure its only sold at a fair market rate and cannot be abused by considerably overvaluing the ground. Perhaps only a certain percentage of a ground sale can be used to go towards FFP? Maybe make an exception for administration.
  11. Don't think it matters, Leeds deserved to be thrashed everytime they are on Sky for being only 2nd to Villa for being billy big bollocks and to take a huge dump from as high up as possible on Sky's love affair with them.
  12. Puts last summer into context and why we didn't really push the boat out despite the money that we got from player sales. Sometimes you wish the club would come out and make a 'don't expect too much this summer' statement so they don't get too much flak but I suppose that could hurt ticket sales and income. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
  13. Spot on. Palmer can create something and Eliasson's crosses are actually threatening. No creativity in midfield is why we struggle to score. Actually getting people in the box would be a good start when we're putting crosses in, something we used to do earlier in the season. It's just Famara in the center...
  14. Where has this soft underbelly suddenly come from?
  15. How about Mario Engels? Plays for Roda FC (Dutch second division) just scored 24 for the season, can play on the wing or center forward. Pacey, decent finish on him, has a trick or two. Wouldn't cost alot either.
