What a player - composed, solid, tactically sound, outwitted our front men - we should have a look at him... oh wait ... we did, he played for us for a couple of pre-season games in 2017... LJ said "not good enough"  

We have Nathan Baker though who apparently is a solid championship defender and a warrior

Let's put it into perspective he's had a good 180 minutes against a championship team that don't have a clue what they are doing on the pitch 

If he was doing it week in week out he wouldn't be playing for Shrewsbury

We also had Eberechi Eze (now of QPR) with us back along, presumably also deemed not good enough. 

Well I didn’t know that

Every single championship team has repeatedly said not good enough.

He's in league 1.

Come up with decent reasons to bash LJ please.

Obviously you know better than our scouts and the people who actually dealt with him whilst here?

Yes, so he had a great game (I assume) everyone has had at least one, and it hurts when it's against us, but as you said, not tearing up the division, is he ?

I guess you think the scouts have done a good job...assembled a really balanced squad with strong DNA and identity ...

You're literally inventing reasons to have a pop. I can think of more relevant concerns.

Desperate stuff.

I think we have assembled a strong squad actually. Very good individual players at least, whether the Head coach is getting the best out of them or not is another matter

I think that actually, lots of people do think we have a balanced and strong squad. That's the biggest frustration many have with the management!

....and somewhere along this run of 19 games we are gonna find out one way or the other.  Give him the striker he needs, and then he can prove to us once and for all.

By the end of the season, for me there will be no ambiguity, he’s either progressed us (play-offs) or he hasn’t (7th or worse).  It’s a results business, and over 46 games, even if performances aren’t to our liking, we have to accept that he net the objective.  If over 46 games we fall short I don’t think there are any reasons that are valid to say we didn’t progress.  The tools he has been given, under the constraints of SL / MA set a perfectly reasonable objective of top 6.

Now is the time to just get on with it.
