  1. If we were missing chances I'd say strikers, as we are not I'd say service. Not as black and white as that, nothing ever is. We have been lacking in MF for some time, strikers runs (Wells) have been missed or ignored. We have he'd the players that could play that pass and Fam doesn't move a great deal. If Pearson gets a long term deal, he will hopefully work on the link up between the MF & strikers so we play a more joined up style. Because we go direct a lot, Fam doesn't move and make runs, because he doesn't move he doesn't offer himself for a pass. Chicken / Egg.
  2. He has nearly everything to be a top player. Can see a pass, plays with his head up and wants to play forward. Can dribble and use both feet, good touch and control. His problem is laziness, not just in the running and chasing, but he has on several occasions switched off as he know what he is going to do, flicks the ball towards his target but because he's switched of the pass is often loose or under/over hit. I said on another thread how Vyner has improved on his concentration, so it can be done. Another thing TB has to work on is energy and intensity, he can wander around and if the ball pa
  3. I was critical of ZV at the start of the season , concentration was poor, really had lapses. He was the one you were waiting to make a mistake or drift off and lose his man. Gradually he improved, so much so I think at one time he was our best player, definitely most improved. He though, like others, suffered from our injury problems and started getting moved around. He was very good when he moved into MF and has been as good as anyone bringing the ball out. Can't blame him for our non moving MF, and our tactic of going long because of it. Next year , with a full squad & hopefully a new RB
  4. In a perfect World I would want a better player coming in. Reality means we will probably have to keep some of the OOC players, for me Rowe would be one. I don't think he's been good of late, but he is versatile and steady. Handy to rotate with JD, but great to have on the bench.
  5. I did think about both of these, really is a difficult job this year.
  6. POTS? Bents , Kalas , Vyner ? Not sure anyone else has played consistently enough to be considered . Kalas has spent the season making last ditch tackles and putting out fires, good season but maybe not quite good enough. Vyner was getting better and better at CB, looked good at DMF but I think the constant switching eventually got to him and form suffered. Has to be Bentley. His mistakes have lead to 3 goals off the top of my head, probably still less than the rest . Stand out performance? Robbing points from Forest when we got battered. YPOTS? Semenyo , Bakinson , HNM , Vyn
  7. I think he did , but possibly not in the way you might mean. I think he is so ego led , that he enjoys trying to get one over on people so much, that he was happy to do deal after deal.
  8. Probably inside looking out too Good chance it pissed off one or two players that were hoping for a new deal, and it's made it difficult to sign Fam now. I doubt very much the same contract will be on offer at the end of the season.
  9. Saw this earlier. I don't study the finances as close as some on here, but that is scary numbers. They could be really could be in trouble very soon without going up.
  10. Sure I read that a while back.
  11. Wasn't all that done under the previous scouting & recruitment set up, before Ashton came in and dismantled it? Supposing Pearson is taken on long term, I think you're right. NP has been underwhelmed with what he's had to work with, could mean a big turn over. I do wonder about a couple of OOC players, Walsh, Baker would make sense, even Watkins. Still need a few on top of those. The squad need a mindset change, as well as anything else, could come with the right signings.
  12. Pretty much same as it ever was (to paraphrase Talking Heads). The big difference is social media and now you can see the info going around the Web. Now you can see that someone has got information from somewhere else, I imagine Gregor would then go to the Club for confirmation. Be grateful GMcG doesn't rely on Roy DeAlien Twitter feed for his info
  13. That does shine a light on not only the recruitment team, the policy and the top men's willingness to back the manager. But also on Johnson's need to accumulate players and then loose interest. All just a little bit free and easy. If Steve and Mark had told their boy Lee 'No' once in a while, he might have concentrated on bringing in quality , rather than numbers.
  14. Pubs are open, don't think the Bingo is just yet
  15. I'm just worried that we will coast up to the end of the season, results have been poor and Lansdown decides he doesn't stick with managers any more. We then spend another few weeks looking at managers and appointing one with little time to assess the squad , let alone time to replace and improve what we have. In the scenario I would be struggling for a reason to renew, apart from the messages I'm getting on WhatsApp going on about prematch drinks
