  1. But gives the ball away or gets caught with the ball too much too
  2. Given a few games Josh Martin has the potential to be ahead of them all bar Buendia just needs to get stronger physically and game time.
  3. The only 2 players last season that did well were Krul and Aarons
  4. Honestly, no great loss. Massively overrated player. Couldn't agree more lived too much on the local boy theme, hope he fits in better elsewhere but fear he may be another Murphy type sale.
  5. Not talking about Kenny Mclean anyway playing totally different positions but Mclean does show a lot more effort imo
  6. He played 1 clever ball against Preston think thats good enough?
  7. Why do people think Cantwell should start he was poor on Saturday not much better at Huddersfield?
  8. Doesn''t hurt me they are obviously better than us
  9. So I am an idiot he will get better and in the right formation has a sweet pass and dead ball potential, How many games have you seen this season Hoola not many i suspect
  10. [quote user="City 2nd"]Following the debacles at Villa and Millwall, this messageboard went into meltdown re our defensive frailties and the need to address the problem. It gets addressed, we play two defensive midfielders and keep two clean sheets, yes, likely at the expense of any creativity. Then this board goes into meltdown once again! Two clean sheets, we move to about halfway up the table, and still you moan. There has to be a balance, the coach is getting there, but patience is needed. Too many of you want instant success. That isn''t going to happen. A side has to be built to win, we don''t have money for the instant success so many crave, and never will have.[/quote] City I was at both of those games and agree Millwall was awful I left at 4th goal, however poor our defending was at Villa i was impressed with the way we kept going and tbh at 3-2 had we equalised our attacking display with Nelson on could have won that game. We must not get too many beatings, this team wont cope with that. I am convinced we will get there, it might take two seasons but lack of investment might make it longer.
  11. [quote user="Baldyboy"]Looks an absolute waste of money and to think loads on here were raving about him before the season started![/quote] He also had one of our two shots on target last night albeit was deflected wide, so what would you say about the other 8 on the pitch?
  12. [quote user="hogesar"]Its amazing what playing in a sub standard non physical league can do![/quote]Dont Switzerland have a higher world ranking tha England?
  13. [quote user="kingsway"]Very true Year of the Tiger! Pinto seems untouchable cause he foreign and goes on social media! In reality he has his weaknesses as you state! I seem to remember Garrido a few years ago being the darling of many fans and being completely shielded from criticism. He was competent but he wasn''t as wonderful as many made out![/quote]So would I be nervous playing beside Russell Martin and while we are on the subject of defending watch the hole he left for the first goal, and why have we let Ben Godfrey go on loan when he is a better option at RB cover than Martin beggars belief, unless we are signing more players.
  14. [quote user="Lessingham Canary"]He s still only 19, so not such bad news. Hope he does make it to our 1st team, have liked what have seen from so far.[/quote] Me too LC not sure its the right thing for us unless DF is lining up more experienced cover for RB. Saw him at Leeds in cup last year at RB thought he looked decent. Game time will be good for him
  15. [quote user="Jim Smith"]This would all be fine were it not for the fact that we will then be told we have to sell Maddison, Pritchard, Murphy and Oliveira in the summer because we''ve lost our parachute payments. We are being asked to be patient in the one season where we actually don''t really have the time to be patient. Delia and co have wasted every opportunity we''ve had and now I fear will preside over a slide to real mediocrity for years.[/quote] Jim not a fan of our owners but how do we get rid them are majority shareholders and wont sell!!! As for the panic posts, there was some poor defending on Saturday, Martin wont get a kick when Klose is fit, Wildschut could cover Pinto as well as being an impact player, Stoiperman can play left back I thought when he moved more central in the second half he looked a decent player. We played some decent probing football second half, and with more luck could have won the game. Steve Bruce said we were a decent sid, work on the defence and midfield so that when we play a high line the midfield keeps hold of it so then the defence is not immediately put on the back foot. Zimmerman needs more work done with him and imo Franke could become avery good defender. One more signing is required a pacey striker, thats all
  16. The second goal was he backed off and the guy curled it into the corner and the first was from his side too, we''re you There?
  17. Great post Sony I thought we were good second half today just unlucky with deflected 3rd goal and possible hand ball for 4th. Too many people on here worried about Ipswich being 8 points ahead of us I will say now we will finish above them
  18. [quote user="Darth Canary1"]And the fourth, scum must be going crazy for this attractive football[/quote] Why do you call them scum you half-wit they are just another opposition football team, you are why I will not go to Ipswich away again after last season it was a vile experience and instigated by moronic City fans
  19. [quote user="Indy"]No he wasn''t but he did nothing to change the game either, how much better did we look when we went 4 at the back with Wes on? We actually looked a threat! So the question is do we like to pass the ball like Ray Wilkins, back, sideways and back again or do we pass and move forwards occasionally too? The pressure should be on Naismith he''s fronted the press conference and is a senior player, he must lead by example and be one of our best players in most games, IMO.[/quote] I would play him at No10 and make him captain
