  1. williams did his job and Massengo had a long spell where the game bypassed him he def had more in the latter 30 minutes, but to start was a bit AWOL
  2. for me at least. He was terrific, keeping their wide man under shackles for nearly the whole game, getting forward, putting in the blocks etc a no nonsense RB

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49642423 rated better than Bale !

  5. the distance he gets on his kicking is impressive - easily further than any recent other keepers we've had
  6. thanks - will give it a go
  7. Does anyone use a VPN (?) like tunnel bear to watch Robins TV? does it work ok?
  8. after the palace pre season and then the leeds game it seemed to me glaringly obvious that we'd signed a load of players that we already had (albeit on loan) and that very little had changed. It felt like the MF has gone stale and lacked the creative nous / drive to link play up the field. Christ alone knows what a french teenage wunderkid and this mystery Hungarian will bring - but hey! lets enjoy the ride. change is good.
  9. so what of Jack Hunt - is he expected to play 2nd fiddle? (TBC Leeds clearly targeted that flank on Saturday and other teams have done so prior, so it's seen as one of our weak spots - i am just wondering how he will respond to this?)
  10. Exactly this - the Leeds no 4 was an illustration of what Pack should be doing but didn’t . Pack lost possession too many times with his sideways passing, and those ‘hollywood’ cross field balls. Brownhill was invisible for lots of the game and Patterson showed how pointless he is by running into dead ends 80% of the time he ran with the ball. We have signed players we had last season, nothing has changed, we need to shake up the MF (at least) and get some focus in the middle, otherwise the striker situation will not change
  11. it's got to be this. we just wouldn't spend this sort of money on an untested teenager with 5(?) senior games to his name. wonderkid or not! He will move to Chelsea just as soon as the embargo is lifted. They would have loaned him out anyhow so this is just the same. (they've probably agreed the costs of this in advance ) It will be interesting to see how the authorities view it.

    one up front

    when i say 'direct' i mean that too often we don't take the half chances when they are there - in that moment. the ball is played in and we always seem to want to pass it out wide rather than go for goal - hit it early, several times yesterday the ball was there to be hit and we chose instead to pass it wide, or lay it off, and that moment is gone. is it lack of confidence? or that BCFC autopilot that always pushes the ball wide lets be more single minded about hitting the target. fancy passing (usually until we lose possession) doesn't win games!
  13. our 2 main signings are players we are used to and watched all last season - there was a sense of deja vu today, LJ's tactics (?) were certainly not apparent to me, and we looked all too familiar to the fragile side we know and love from last season. we really, really, really need a striker like Assombalonga.
  14. well that went well. LJ must have his reasons for never going 2 up front, but today was horrible - yes Prem team etc, but it has long been established that FD is NOT a target man, in fact it's hard to say exactly what he is, (This is not knocking him - i rate him) but it seems to me he would benefit from having another striker playing alongside him, much tighter than we currently do with this ineffective 3-5-3-1-2-3-1 thing that Lee likes to pursue. - whatever it actually is. Wiemann was/ is wasted out wide (however I would implore him to be much much more selfish and just go for goal!) Sammy seems like another LJ classic - lightweight, fancy pants passing, drifting around the MF, no particular end result. we have a few of them already Pato in particular (in fact Paterson had some good chances when he came on - he just fluffed them) and so once again Fammy is isolated and bears the brunt of everyone's frustrations because he doesn't single handedly score every time the ball is flicked/lumped to him, as he tries to control it when marked by 3 CD's I thought Elliason looked promising, but not enough direct balls whipped in - we persist with that fruitless triangular passing, which allows the defense to regroup and everything peters out we don't seem to have learnt, or progressed and we will suffer against the direct teams (like Leeds) unless we start to become much more ruthless and direct in front of goal. (with 2 strikers please)
