  1. We need another Ben Godfrey for the dm role. .
  2. Farke has got players running through brick walls for each other. Oliviera wouldn’t run for a bus. If his mental attributes were on par he would be an excellent player but unfortunately with him, you only get the occasional good performance.
  3. Huddlestone should have been off for that.
  4. Am I alone I’m not rating grealish? I just don’t see the hype. Wouldn’t mind Andre green from villa though. Currently on the bench but remember him causing us problems for villa and scoring the winner for Portsmouth against us.
  5. It’s because the balance of the team is heavily tilted towards attacking. Against Blackburn we had 6 attacking players plus our two fullbacks attacking. You’re always going to concede playing this way but thankfully we’ve generally outscored our opponents. We obviously can’t be this gung-ho next season but we can still keep the same passing style. I think most people recognise we need a defensive midfielder who holds his ground. Trybull has kept the ball moving nicely but lacks the athleticism and strength to stop opposition midfield runners. That midfield protection and continued improvement from our young defence will hopefully see us stay up.
  6. Krul is fine but we need a better back up than McGovern.
  7. Excellent point. There’s a clear pathway to the first team if you’re good enough and that must be an attractive proposition to potential young recruits.
  8. What has promotion got to do with anything? It’s a link to one of our players I’ve not heard of. Maybe others on here are interested in our young players with potential to step up to the first team. Hardly nonsense.
  9. https://www.footballinsider247.com/exclusive-west-ham-plot-swoop-to-sign-norwich-sensation/ Not heard of him but obviously highly thought of. Hopefully another gem coming through.
  10. I think we’ll sign at least one cb depending on Klose and Hanley staying. a proper defensive midfielder. 2 wingers striker. Think that would give us a good balance and hopefully enough quality to stay up. I think they’ll look to upgrade on McLean, Hernandez and steiperman from the first eleven.
  11. There’s no way they know our exact budget for the premier league. Just guess work. As long as we sign players who really want to be here, that buys into our ideas, I’m happy. No mercenaries thank you.
  12. Terrible First half. So many players under performing. Changes needed at half time.
  13. That’s out of character for him. Very surprised.
  14. I thought steiperman was very poor. He played with such a relaxed attitude and held on to the ball far too long on occasions. He’s allowed a poor game as he’s been excellent lately. On a side note that’s the poorest I’ve seen Lewis play. Never seen him misplace so many passes.
  15. He’s going to the very top wherever he plays. At the minute he’s learning on the job at centre back. He’s a more complete defensive midfielder. I actually thought he was at fault for their first goal. He wasn’t tight enough and shouldn’t let the striker have a first time shot, although an excellent finish. His all round game is so strong and his potential is so high that I think he’ll end up at a top 4 club. Enjoy him while we can.
  16. Another player who has improved massively from the player that arrived. Will he be good enough for the prem (finger crossed)? Can he improve further or has he reached his ceiling?
  17. Just wondered what people’s opinions are on our current pairing. I can’t quite make my mind up on McLean. Trybull has been pretty good since he came back into the side. Both don’t offer that much defensively with players often leaving them for dead running past them. It’s a really hard balancing act with our style of play. They both always want the ball and keep play moving but with leitner and Vrancic now available are they the best option?
  18. He’s not great with the ball at his feet but it’s the way we play and most of the time it works. It keeps possession rather than just launching it forward. That said just before half time and 2-0 up I’d prefer he just hoofed it
  19. When he first came I thought he was dreadful and not suited to the English game at all. The improvement in him has been amazing. The same can be said about lots of the signings with vrancic another who has improved out of sight. The coaching department deserve a huge amount of credit.
  20. Ages to go yet but with nearly a fully fit squad I’m optimistic we can hang on for top two. Looking at the fixtures I think Leeds will drop out with sheff Utd and possibly Middlesbrough our main rivals. Think West Brom will just miss out.
