  1. 7 out of 11 still leaves 4, a third of the team. Plus those players back could allow us to revert to Holden's favoured shape , if it still is. Take the 2 CMF from any side in this division and replace them with academy players in their first year, be interesting to see if the top 6 would be the same. I think we will see an improvement , how much remains to be seen. At times this year we've had.. 3 first choice CBs out. 5 MFs out 6 LB/WBs out 2 RBs out
  2. I don't think Holden has used the few options we have as well as he could. Yes he's been hampered , limited, but we were getting overrun in MF last night and Holden obviously knew it. Nagy at 65 minutes for Wells, fair enough, but Bakinson was being bypassed and Palmer wasn't as effective, why not bring on HNM ? I think with the season as it is Massengo should have been used more. He seems to flog some players, even when we do have options. When we switched last night, I thought the 4-3-3 should be 4-5-1 , allow 3 CMF to restrict Huddersfield space. They showed in the previous f
  3. Maximising our returns ????? I'd be happy if 50% of our throw ins actually went to our players.
  4. The movement is much better with Bakinson & Palmer, Vyner does everything very simplyWells & Fam coming deeper on occasion. The problem early on was a familiar one, bad passing lets us down so often. Later in the game, keeping it simple to feet, we actually looked a good side. We started finding passes through and between their press. Was pleased with Semenyo's goal, coming central to pickup a great ball from Wells who'd pulled wide to get the ball. Looks simple when it comes off,
  5. That explains the partial payment, try to keep them sweet and onside. For now.
  6. So many and yet so few choices. I'd love to know what Holden is thinking 3CB's. Is it still his favoured shape ? Anyway. I would love to see Semenyo centre , with wells who surely deserves a run in his actual position. That could give movement that Palmer could exploit. Massengo needs a run, Bakinson too probably and Vyner would benefit from another run in midfield. That gives me a 4-3-1-2 sort of shape, which I actually like. Back four then... Mariappa , Moore , Kalas/Mawson , Rowe . The only choice would be Kalas or Mawson, Then I wouldn't be surprised to see a debut, but
  7. Whatever the wage bill, still not paid al of December's. How long before the EFL step in or ask questions?
  8. Is that their currant kit ????? I know the old saying is you can't polish a turd, but **** me, looks like you can make one look worse !!
  9. They have rejected the first proposal at £18m a year and as Karen Brady put it.... £18million-a-season, with a £720,000-a-year limit on each player. That includes tax, agents’ fees, signing-on fees and loyalty bonuses. This is about £12k-a-week repercussions could be immense
  10. I think we are in a real 'transition period' for the entire EFL, Prem will always be a Law unto themselves. Best part of no income from Football, you can add all the accompanying conference and Ground related activities too. With salary caps coming in below Championship level, it can only be a matter of time there is one for the 2nd tier , even though some will fight against it, either in principle or in the level it's set at. This will probably lead to lower wages for many, transfer fees are likely to be hit as there is less money sloshing around. Things will get difficult for
  11. Now I doubt anyone, including Steve himself, would say he's not made mistakes. You can't doubt his commitment, well some can but that's ludicrous . I just need to see both sides of the arguments.. He spent millions on planning etc for Ashton Vale to hide the fact he really wanted to redevelop the Gate all the time It's his fault our debts are so high, but does things on the cheap. Wasted money on players and staff, but again we do things on the cheap. Accountable ? He is, if he makes mistakes ultimately he the one that pays, literally, in the literal sense of the word
  12. We are in good company with the head coach Dave
  13. I would have changed shape, Aarons has scored against us before it's no secret they have a threat wide and their movement creates space. I would have gone to what was supposed to be our favourite set up, 3-5-2 even 5-4-1 just to get someone wide. It was clear from early on last night that there was abut 20 yards of space in the FB areas. The last game they destroyed us because there was no pressure on the passer and we lost runners. We needed more in MF, HA tried hard, but they passed around us. I guess Holden wanted us to be compact and keep us narrow, but Palmer & Adelakun aren't natural
