  1. Depending on the definition. If the definition is it made the goalkeeper work then no, but if you include defenders blocks then yes it was. But who cares really.
  2. Yes again I largely agree. However We had little core strength under LJ which DH has seen and brought in. It is surprising how much stronger you can be with confidence and a clear head. Under the master tactician our team and manager had neither. LJ had lightweight players with little protection not knowing what they were doing. Bringing back players playing with confidence domestically and internationally could have made a huge difference for him and us. Still onward! At least he didn’t turn them into garbage.
  3. Plenty of calls for player returns in the window. The fact was we didn’t have the players in form or the management to do the job otherwise we would have done it....The team was struggling from the point we were out muscled by WBA in November. Followed by Millwall Charlton Brentford who did the same and topped off by the humiliation of Shrewsbury (Any team that watched us knew we were soft and lightweight and evidently beatable and did just that all within the time frame players could be brought back)...Whilst we were playing turgid hoof it to Fammy ball, particularly at home. By the time
  4. But that’s not completely true is it. The call back in Jan clause is there if needed. We didnt take it up. As for hindsight, there were plenty screaming for the return of the players mentioned at the time. I know I was among many...It was foresight that was lacking and poor decisions. IMO...Still we have them now right along with about 37 other midfielders, that Dean Holden is sorting out in the coming weeks according to today’s interview. Our midfield was bullied game after game. Korey and HNM just didnt have the stamina and strength to compete and Kasey Palmer and Elliason festered whi
  5. Yes competition is good. I will await Williams and if AWs form drops, he gets injured Or we start losing he will get his chance. I’m sure
  6. There is a thread about that. The OP was getting sh1t something fierce for saying it....Love this place! Either way Holden is bringing out the quality we always had in the squad, thus far.....A far cry from what we were getting not that long ago! I am 100% behind Holden for the season!
  7. Yes I agree with the thrust, however the previous administration was struggling had these players available but spent money on two players that weren’t playing one of whom wasn’t even training and was kicked out by us. Couple that with Nagy’s injury among several others The opportunity was there last season but the regime chose poor options. IMO
  8. He was excellent.....Please keep him in that spot! Talked so much sense and gave cracking insight!!
  9. Our scouting department has been decent for a while....The club is developed on the basis of buying young and developing potential. I cant understand why he was not around the team/club last season (along with Morrell and Walsh brought back) he hasn’t just become the player he is in the four weeks between last season and this!
  10. Williams Walsh and Morrell Will have to go some to displace him in league games!
  11. Weimann is a great player. He provides the engine in the team. He 100% earned his goal that came from his dispossession of the Stoke defender. The utter knobs who come on here and start threads about him are exactly that. He’s the first player on the team sheet for the big games and quite right too..
  12. First half was ok, second half very good against a team a division below us.
  13. We will know about Kalas by tomorrow, but it did not look good. Thus the goalkeeper and back three pick themselves. Rowe will have to be in the squad and I would say is nailed on sub. Bakinson I will predict right now will start. Then it could be anyone after that. My thoughts are s Weimann and Wells Will be starting, but not as a pair. Anyone from Semenyo Martin and FD to partner Wells to start. Also dropping Patterson is highly unlikely. Thus who is fit to play with Patterson, Bakinson and Weimann from the off?
  14. Nahki Wells was turned into a sub by LJ and Benik Afobi a winger. Not convincing LJ was dependent on where your number came out of the tombola!! Bakinson had a stormer of a cameo as you allude, who knows what comes next, but I will wager The Boy is not going on loan! I think the clever money is on Morrell to get sold, possibly along with HNM, but we will see I guess.
  15. Moore did well. We were under pressure all first half because we won eff all in the middle. Back three constantly under pressure and they came through it! Some real pleb/s on here today!
  16. Well that was pony. Midfield is slow and cant find a pass!! Sigh
  17. I'm pretty sure! can someone be that effing stupid/blind?
  18. Some interesting comments and historical revisions on this thread. I can not be arsed to point them all out as I have a season of football to look forward to. Hopefully not so much pump it to Fammy ball....
  19. Yes me too! I'm a fundamentalist, so always think we can do well. Good signings and the youngsters coming through give us a strong looking team....So i guess I'm upbeat for the season!!
  20. I’m not sure anyone wrote either, except you, I certainly didn’t. SL will get a season in before he passes judgement, unless we are tanking ridiculously at that point SL will pass it for you.
  21. Listened to it three times now. I think we have something/someone just a little bit special.
  22. Any link for those overseas...Would e very much appreciated
  23. Brian signed for us at age 25.....However we all take your point as it was a response to utter twaddle
  24. Morell is tearing up trees for Wales Walsh has Been given number 8. These boys are staying Brunt is here, so pick your poison for who goes. A bid Being accepted for HNM is not out of the question I was told. I guess we will see.
