He was critical of Wells post match despite him scoring. I think that will be his justification for bringing in Diedhiou and having him up top with Afobe. Maybe he will go with Nagy, Smith and Palmer as a midfield three and bring back Kalas in a three alongside Williams and Baker? Who knows?
It seems pretty obvious to me that we need not just one but two quality, experienced 'championship ready' central midfielders - no more punts on overseas players like Hegeler and Nagy. Ideally a combative leader (Gary Shelton mould) and one which can screen the back four (Kalifa Cisse mould). To be fair to Johnson, he has tried to do this with O'Neil, Hegeler, and Henriksen but none of worked out for a variety of reasons. I appreciate that Walsh has had a brilliant year at Coventry, and Morrell is highly rated, but to expect them to run the midfield in a couple of months time is lud
Given the fact that Mark Ashton has stated that there will be very little transfer activity unless we trade, I think we may need to do just that and make some serious surgery to our central midfield. We have been lacking midfield creativity and someone who can break in the box for what seems like decades. Added to this, we have never really replaced that midfield enforcer in the mould of Kalifa Cisse. I think Johnson thought O'Neill/Hegeler/Henriksen could perform that role but it never quite worked out for various reasons. For me, I would build our midfield around Liam Walsh wit
In the same vein as Edgy Red above, I thought I would share my memories of Buster Footman - more specifically how he helped my younger brother. My brother as an 11 year old was playing in a junior '7 a side' football tournament for Yatton Athletic (summer 1992), where he broke his leg after being badly tackled by a 16 year old. For some unknown reason, they used to lump all age groups in together and unfortunately suffered a bad break. For anyone who had a plaster cast as a child, these were completely different to the casts of today, and were heavy and cumbersome with no way of maintain
I would go with this until we get a striker in with a physical presence. Could actually see a surprise boost on Sunday with Dasilva back in? Bentley Hunt Kalas Williams Dasilva Nagy Smith Weimman Brownhill Eliasson Diedhiou
I really don’t know what your problem is with Joe Bryan. As a casual observer of this forum I’ve noticed that every time Joe comes up in conversation you’re straight into it trying to bring him down. I even remember you commenting that he didn’t like football, and because he was privately educated he preferred rugby (how you came to that conclusion I have no idea). Joe Bryan did a lot for Bristol City both on and off the pitch. I certainly don’t resent him leaving or looking to better himself. Perhaps you could take a leaf from his book and post something more constructive rather than
