  1. Two changes from the XI that thumped Northampton, for me: Brunt comes in for Bakinson, Diedhiou for Martin. I could also see an argument for Rowe playing as the left-sided defender at Mawson's expense.
  2. I agree with that, Dave. None of this is Holden's fault, although I cannot recall any ire being directed at him. I've certainly wished him well since he took the job. I place little value in what he achieved in his caretaker role as I suspect it was the bounce effect after taking the shackles off, but he couldn't have done any more in the first four games so good on him. Just because we've had a good start, however, does not (should not) exhonerate the club from any scrutiny over the way they handled his appointment. As I said a while ago, if they went with Holden at the start I would've
  3. Great to see Moore taking his chance. I struggle to recall such a genuine lad playing for us, and wanting to make it with so bad. He deserves the plaudits after that performance today and I’ve got no doubt he’ll get better and better, with the occasional error along the way that he will learn from.

    I can certainly see why some Derby fans called him the Championship’s Sheringham. Very clever player and the perfect foil for Wells. Great start.
  5. Oh, I agree. But my assessment is based on three-and-a-half years of performances and, IMO, is pretty fair. World beater against Man City, stroller against Rotherham. We have better options in that position.
  6. I like Pato but think he’s a 1 great game in 10 man and there are better, more obvious option in that position. Same with Weimann in that role.
  7. What a moronic post from the OP. All of us are City fans who want to see us do well, opinions differ - that’s a fact of life. Great start for Holden, one I hope continues. But I recall his predecessor was streaky, time will tell if he’s the same.
  8. Shock horror: GJ didn't know how to manage big players. He treated Trundle and Noble the same. We knew that at the time and his boy is a chip off the old block.
  9. Spot on. Just for a change, LJ shirked any responsibility of his own for those dire Shrewsbury performances and blamed KP for doing the club out of £1m in lost revenue from that Liverpool game. We all knew the answer was closer to home.
  10. Playing him behind Wells with Morrell, Walsh and Williams behind him would suit KP down to the ground, IMO.
  11. KP’s performance should come as no surprise to those who believe in him. He’s got class in him and is clearly a confidence player, the sort who needs an arm round him rather than being thrown under the bus time and again. I really hope this is the turning point for him because there is a top player in there. He’s earned his next chance and needs to string a run of games together against sides better than Northampton with all due respect. He’s miles ahead of Weimann in that role and a better long-term prospect than Pato. If KP performs consistently at tonight’s level, it’s a no brai

    I'm pretty certain SL will sell out should we ever establish ourselves in the top flight. He, or his family, would finally get his ROI then. As it seems unlikely we will reach those heights under his watch, we're probably set for another two decades of inertia or worse. For the record, I've crossed paths with JL a few times and he's nowhere near as shrewd or sharp as his old man.
  13. If we insist on playing the same system every game: O’Leary; Vyner, Moore, Mawson (60); Sessegnon, Bakinson, Palmer, Morrell (60), O’Dowda; Semenyo, Martin (60).
  14. This squad should be capable of a top-six finish, however the inexperience of the manager tempers my expectations of such a finish. I hope I’m proven wrong.
