  1. Oh god- I take it that is this weeks excuse? As opposed to starting weak tacklers in midfield positions and a centre back at right back and handing the advantage to the opposition from the start which would fall on the coaching team. Interesting !!
  2. Papering over the cracks - we have the best squad we have had in a long time but cannot compete. I have not joined in any of the LJ out stuff and certainly not the midget crap but we will not be able to match these teams whilst he, McAllister and Holden are here. I think we will finish 7th or 8th by a point or three and that is about right with the current limitations of the coaching team.
  3. This is surely 1st place versus 24th?
  4. Wiemann for Eliasson Callum for Paterson Perreira for Hunt Rowe for Korey (if any niggling injury) This will firm us up and hopefully avoid the problems seen against Derby - Leeds would have destroyed us. I know this is a very defensive side but I think we can get something on the break as we have many times away this season. We have the sort of striker now who can convert even if he only gets 1 or 2 half chances - more than happy to set up not to lose for this one. The longer we are 0-0 the more frustrated the fans and players will get and we can pounce on that. Win or draw ugly but don’t lose; particularly not a drubbing !!
  5. Out of interest who here is playing Wells in? From the little I have seen he busies himself with movement across the 18 yard box looking for threaded or dinked passes so I think he is ineffective without a CAM able to see his movement and then find him. Unless Henriksen is that type? Korey certainly isn’t so I think we need to accommodate Paterson in a central role OR bring Palmer in from the cold
  6. Interested in views on Eliasson in the wake of ever increasing speculation (albeit mainly small news websites) that he wants out to Celtic or Lazio. If he was a squad player at best and going with forum trends from the past it would normally be if he wants out let him rot and his head might be turned so should not be playing type posts. He was fairly useless against Brum so maybe his head was elsewhere but obviously his assist record this season is incredible. Just curious and throwing into the mix.
  7. The penny will drop with LJ by Wednesday; to be fair I have it on good authority he has been pondering taking a risk at home for the last couple of years - have faith
  8. I gave some level headed feedback and you just took it too far. Shame on you
  9. We will win all three games and be 3rd on goal difference.
  10. Although the patronising tone is not needed this is spot on. The model is very much to buy potential and trade profits whilst hopefully improving the first team squad. There has not been much hit and hope in the signings where there may have been at some other high player turnover clubs.
  11. Bumped because I wanted to see if the general view was will Kasey come back into squad Wednesday as one of the few if only players we have capable of seeing the movement of Wells and playing him in? If not in the squad then I go back to thinking - why was he kept in January and what has actually gone on? Sorry @phantombut I think there is something to see here; he was our poster boy on official site interacting with fans etc - he has not been seen in a photo etc for weeks.
  12. In many ways a defeat was good. LJ has many good attributes but his major weakness has always been making the tough decisions over certain players - Wiemann, Brownhill, Paterson, Pack etc etc have all benefitted over the years from continuous stating berth when at the time it clearly wasn’t justified. Picking the same team because we were winning is weakness - you pick the best team for the opposition, conditions, work in training etc always. The lightweight team picked today was never going to compete with the height and physicality of a well drilled Birmingham team.
  13. Obviously I am being really thick here but who played where yesterday when Wells came on? I keep seeing people saying Paterson might make way in a 4-4-2; presumably then with Wiemann playing midfield do you mean?

    Sexy Sammie

    Should have kept him and loaned out Palmer. Pointless the latter being here anymore - if he is not getting on pitch as direct replacement for Patterson he is not getting on the pitch at all.

    16 cup finals

    Strange league and form is definitely so important. I’m not going to say we can make top 2 as that is just heart ruling head. But I do firmly believe both West Brom and Leeds will not finish top 2 either.
  16. I would hope not. Players live and breathe others coming and going - it is not the big deal for them as it is for fans. More likely they consider him a friend and would apologise for “catching” him in a challenge rather than go in with that intent.
  17. I think he may start same team with Wells and Palmer coming on after an hour as plan B if needed. Ultimately I think we may end up 3-5-2 again.
  18. Either Vydra or Wells will be here by end of window Friday. Fact. Any facts stated on this thread by this poster are purely fictitious and may or may not prove accurate in the future.
  19. A few years ago he was Barnsley through and through. I would need google to tell you which club he was through and through prior to that.
  20. No - fairly sure he started the game in midweek. Home debut I presume.
  21. Szmodics looks a championship player. On YouTube
  22. Yeah but but he will go to Forest obviously. Get a grip - wankpuffins
  23. I think we have a lot to offer and feel we must give a decent pitch; we have after all recruited the talents of Palmer, Kalas, Dasilva, Massengo, Nagy etc. Attractive city, great people. I think it will come down to whether we are prepared to pay a bit over the odds or favour them a bit more on a Brownhill swap deal and maybe pay a K or 2 more a week than we ideally wanted too. I fear he will go to Forest also but more because we will baulk at the price than the player would actually prefer Forest.
  24. It is not a good point and has been covered. What else is he going to say. If he signs for us it will suddenly be his dream move - it’s all playing the game surely?
