  1. I would agree with this, but potential is the key word. How he is made to feel, his confidence, the direction of coaching him into the right type of player for his skillset etc... all these variables are crucial. Its up to the coaching team to tap into that.
  2. Thought Fisher was a lucky boy today. He was at Deepdale too when he could have easily seen red for a couple of reckless challenges on Semenyo. On a slightly separate note, don’t know about anyone else, but I would have been beside myself as a Preston fan, chasing a 0-1 deficit and seeing Johnson and Barkhuizen hauled off!
  3. May have been said elsewhere, but I thought he looked sharp, quick-footed and physically stronger today. There is a very good player in there, as always, it’s how his development and confidence is managed that will decide if we see the full potential.
  4. Absolutely makes a massive difference. Oozes quality and presence. Hope we can keep him fit.
  5. The fact that we cannot get our first choice centre-midfield duo back on the pitch after suffering innocuous injuries which we have been told they will be back from soon (repeatedly), but then inexplicably relapse (repeatedly) and that we have not heard from Joe Williams again since his debut on Robins TV suggests there might, just might be something in this.... wouldn’t be a conspiracy theory stretch to rival the moon landing would it?
  6. Something odd here. Signed as much for influence off the pitch and around the dressing room and yet not kept in and around the club in any capacity?
  7. Not sure I was. They were pointed out as potential candidates for relegation and I merely said that they had our number when we played them and have to play them again.
  8. Ok, so playing devils advocate lets look at that. Yes we have a large number of injuries, so who do we have coming back? Baker - maybe just maybe will be great but also likely to get injured again Mawson - unfortunately looks to have a weakness in that knee and no guarantee it will hold up (Fulham fans did tell us) Williams - unlikely to kick a ball this season, played in a relegated side last year Walsh - cannot get fit and do not know why, out of contract in the summer. Great in league one last year Paterson - form was dwindling pre-injury, always had streaky runs bu
  9. Birmingham and Rotherham both beat us pretty comfortably and we have to play them both again.
  10. Hmmmm, ok. So players cant be sold when in contract? Also I am puzzled when people talk about Weimann as a midfielder. He only become one because Holden thinks he is one.
  11. Granted - however he looks the same player now for the Swans as he did for us in 14-15 from what I have seen. Wonder what Steve Cooper does to get that sharpness into him.
  12. Holden was quite clear in his “vision” of 3-5-2 with fast flowing, attacking football, leading us to score 92 league goals. I think he has also gone on record recently to say that Liam Walsh was always going to be a key member of his “vision”. So we can assume Dean had in mind Walsh plus two. What puzzles me is how a fit Korey Smith does not prove to be an asset as a defensive midfielder in a 3 sniffing out danger and breaking up attacks. Dean clearly thought/thinks that Massengo, Nagy, Bakinson, Brunt, all offer more than Korey. Not so sure myself.
  13. Does anyone know why Korey was allowed to leave? Was there a contract offered? Did he want to move on? My memories of the chain of events are hazy.
