  1. I'd like to see two attack setups, one with Teemu upfront and Idah in his shadow (how it was before Idah got injured) and another with Sargent upfront and Idah on the wing - call it plan A and plan B. Adam is better on the wing than Josh, and as good as our Finn is, our needs and styles of play available don't match as well to what he can provide for us. He needs close support from someone that can create space for him. In a perfect world Teemu would be a very astute and dangerous 10/ false 9.
  2. Took some time, but I previously said on these threads that Smith would be gone after the WC if the situation did not improve. Even with some time to work with the players, the return was exceptionally poor. Rebound was never meant to work as a sustainable relationship lol. Farewell Deano.
  3. Messi channelling his inner Maradona since he knows this is his last shot. No more Mr Nice Guy.
  4. Sargent did Sargent things, as limited as he is he keeps a high workrate and doesn't "hide" in games.
  5. It's all relative. Martin O'Neil left after 26 games, guess everyone's s### stinks the same.. Never would've guessed Farke was only a small improvement on Alex Neil
  6. This formation works if the fullbacks can do a fair bit of attacking, which Aarons and McCallum did yesterday tbf. Only thing I'd like to try is have Sargent (#24) as the spearhead and Teemu just slightly off him.
  7. Emi's transfer to Villa was confirmed in June'21. If that season was over by then, with City relegated, then it was the right time for him to be sold. Edit- <facepalm>
  8. How could City avoid selling him without staying in the PL I'm not sure..
  9. By logic, you should be happy. You got (ostensibly) what you wanted. Why wouldn't you stick with Smith? Look at an average Farke lineup, and look at the starting XI yesterday. It's not a coincidence that the bulk of the football played under DF, more so than the names on the teamsheet, was progressive - some dare say, european - and there was a positive connection between fans and the club. Yesterday we started with Pukki and Sara. Good, right? No reason to panic, though. City did well last night, and would've been well worth 3pts if we'd scored. All I want to see is sustained progression, medium to long term, even if it means we wait longer to get promoted again. "Short term ism" is what got us in this position, rash decisions and fudged transfer policy. Beware what you wish for.
  10. Mixing football and politics, that's unfortunate. I'll humour it though If you regret it that much then I'll have your season ticket.. since you ostensibly voted to stay out of the Premier League Grass always greener, as the saying goes.
  11. Smith was afraid of losing the game.
  12. McCallum is doing well tonight. Gibbs has been a bit stop start, Sara had one or two moments in a lacklustre 60 mins.
  13. The similarities I point to between Todd and the others are about how they display themselves for the cameras and whatnot. Some of what Cantwell does on the pitch remind me of Cole, with the others is more their attention to fashion trends. Of course Beckham is the most successful of them, and for me it's easy to imagine Cantwell trying to mould his image in that direction, with a Norfolk twist, obviously
  14. Emi's first few months for us. He was inconsistent, rash, non-committal, and not great. Then he evolved his game, found form and stayed there. Cantwell found enough form for a few matches then dropped off a cliff.. I liked Buendia a lot because he made crazy **** happen on the pitch, and became more effective as time went on. Cantwell had a different role to Emi, when both were playing simultaneously - not really a winger, not really a 10, yet sometimes pops in attacking positions and darting runs beyond the Goat. Sometimes he was one of them players that knows how to slow the tempo of games when in possession. Great Post, by the way. I like it.
  15. Since you're younger I'll replace Beckham and J.Cole with Lingard and Calvert-Lewin. My main point still stands. Just for you. Edit - I said "it went over your head" but not as pointing at anyone's intellectual capacity or anything of that sort, I would not do such a thing. I do know my take is quite a bit "out there" so can't assume someone would know what I mean.. Probably weak wording on my part. Still appreciate a bit of good natured trolling though
  16. Apologies, didn't realise I was replying to a teenager... Comeback? burns? You sound like my nephew... might as well put Fortnite on and bust some moves, I would rather discuss football and related stuff than that. If you don't agree with my post that's cool too, but I guess the way you show your maturity is by throwing shade at people. Well done.
  17. About as much as you do Cantwell.
  18. I guess the point of my post went over your head... Not in career achievements, no - I'm comparing certain aspects of both those players' personalities to Cantwell.
