    GMc's ratings are consistently way off the mark, IMO. The Nagy rating is an absolute joke, especially comparing it to Brunt's. For me, Nagy, Vyner and Semenyo were our best players v Derby. Anyway, back to Nagy. Delighted to see him doing well and seemingly fully fit.
  2. If you go back a few more years, you’ll see we had 23 points from the first 12 games in 07/08.
  3. I agree it’s Holden’s rating of a player rather than a conspiracy. Nagy was only one ahead of HNM in the CM pecking order before Huddersfield and would probably still be out in the cold if Bakinson played that game. Brunt should be at the very bottom of that list, IMHO, and if it’s a choice between him and Rowe, Rowe should get the nod. Brunt offers nothing.
  4. Good post, @Prinny. I’ve banged on in the past about playing square pegs in square holes and I definitely agree with your points COD and Pato. The only thing I disagree with is the central midfield role for Rowe, and if you’re talking about victims of the system where does Massengo fit in (pre-COVID)? I’d have him in ahead of Rowe in CM all day long. What Holden’s issue is with him, we don’t know, and let’s not forget Nagy would probably still be out in the cold if not for Bakinson’s migraine.

    I’m not worried about his lack of goals when he’s playing out of position. Look at Fam’s goal yesterday. Without Wells’ run to the near post, taking a marker with him, Fam doesn’t have the space to take a touch before that superb finish. He’s contributing indirectly, however, I’d have liked to seen him play the width of the six-yard box with Semenyo one side and Eliasson on the other. That could’ve carried a serious goal threat.
  6. I don’t expect us to completely dominate, Major, not at all. I’d like to see us have a go, like we did at Stoke and for 45 minutes at Bournemouth. Can’t fault the work-rate or heart. Whether we deserve to be where we are is open to debate. I do think that if/when Williams and Walsh return, that should improve us in a big way.
  7. Absolutely, that can’t come soon enough. Fair but we’re not the only club to have injuries due to this mental schedule. So, you don’t think we’ve had any luck in getting these results which have us one point off top spot? Sorry if my opinion is more balanced than yours, in that I thought we rode our luck at Cardiff and to a lesser extent today. Likewise at Hudders before Semenyo came on and to a lesser extent today. As said above, we aren’t the only club with injuries to contend with. If we’re still there after 40 games, I’ll be the first to say you were right.
  8. I totally agree, but let’s not forget this is the same starting XI that got a smash-and-grab win at Cardiff against an onslaught. Derby haven’t carried the same threat today, and it looks like another win against the run of play. Great while it lasts, but this luck can’t and won’t last forever IMO.
  9. I’m not sure it’s a completely valid fact as you say, to be fair. After the last week or so I could understand a team running out of legs, but there’s no real excuse for a lack of cohesion from the start if we’re as well drilled as Holden and co. makes out.
  10. Assuming that’s right and why he was withdrawn in the pre-Huddersfield warmup, that was almost three weeks ago. Shouldn’t he be back after 14 days? There’s no reason why the club can’t come out and confirm this, either. We knew Wiemann had it in the summer.
  11. Still no Bakinson? That’s one hell of a migraine
  12. Nagy's not a natural DM, simple as that. I, and others, have said that for a while now. He can do a job there, but he's better box-to-box, IMO. Thanks to the OP for relaying that feedback. It's great to hear he's over his injuries and hopefully ready to make an impact with us.
  13. BBC Sport ran a good article on him last month. That was the first time I’d heard of him. Sounds like a real talent. https://www.bbc.com/sport/amp/football/54433913
  14. I’d be happy with that, too, but I can’t see it for one minute. I actually think it’s a bad time to play Derby after they sacked Cocu and with the virus running through our camp. If they’d kept him, I fancy us. Last two visits aside, we rarely get anything at QPR and haven’t even got a point at Preston in recent years. We also struggle against the likes of Millwall, Blackburn and Birmingham. A lot of those games will go either way. Just got to hope our luck continues.
  15. If he goes there at this moment in time, I give up with football. He's good enough for us right now, let alone a team 18th in the league below. I can see someone like Cowley taking it on, but I sincerely hope Cook doesn't go there.
