  1. Firstly this maybe irrelevant, as he have leave for pastures new, but if he doesn’t. l still believe Ben Godfey would make a much better defensive midfielder than a centre back, I see him in the same mould as Declan Rice at West Ham, and also think, that is where he would be if we had, had better cover at centre back, young reasonably strong, athletic, can pass and tackle, could dictate from centre midfield, any one else think along the same lines?
  2. He’s another option to Pukki and Idah, and gives us more threat up top. After some early negative thoughts on the recruitment, things are starting to take shape, admittedly still wish for a centre back or two, and as yet nobody has departed, but certainly don’t think its all done yet. Fingers crossed
  3. Just excuses, and quoting they did OK, how many games did we win or not concede in January, considering we had a total of 3 clean sheets all season!! its all about what if, same old story.
  4. The main point is the priority should be, looking at our stats, conceded the most goals, scored the least = Relegation. its not just this season it’s been like it for years, we couldn’t defend when we won the title last time around; if we hadn’t have been free scoring, we would have been outside the play offs in mid table. Sound defence equals clean sheets, and a minimum of a draw at level. The ones we have are not good enough, we don’t need to wait and see who goes, you can work that out for yourselves!!!
  5. More and more midfielders arriving, but we can’t defend or score goals, so when will the wake up and smell the coffee?
  6. The Only player that we brought in, that was an improvement was Sam Byram, The rest were DISMAL. Until we get a solid defence and scrap zonal marking, we will continue to leak goals. We did in the Championsip as well as the premier league, just the championship defences were in some cases as poor as ours. IF and WHEN, we sell our youngsters, we need a new defence, and cut out the mistakes, game after game. Next season will be hard, to recover from this dismal effort.
  7. This is long overdue, time for a change, sell up and go, while you have some support from fans, or wait go like Mr Chase!
  8. I know most of this is stating the bleeding obvious, but I just need to get it out there. Having a solid foundation is so important, and our board is not that solid foundation. No matter what the remaining games hold, this season has been a total calamity, from start to finish. The injuries to centre backs, and not getting replacements or cover, started it all off, massive issue. The recruitment, and lack of investment, played a significant part. The style of play. We have a manager trying to play a style, without having players capable, I believe Mr Farke will go on to better things at a club who can provide the players to play his style, but the players we have in our squad, aren’t capable of playing his style at this level, and we don’t have players to change the style, we can’t go long because there is no one capable of holding the ball for two seconds, and even if we did, we don’t go forward quick enough to support. The is very little in the way of fight, no leader, no spine through the team, we are weak, and have little heart, you need to fight for everything in this league, we go behind and that’s that, end of story we capitulate. The management team are in some way responsible, with the recruitment, but even a slightly bigger investment we would have stood a chance, but until the board has a change or rethink, we will always be a good championship team, and **** poor premier league team, no massive expectations, just enough to not be beat nearly every time you walk up that tunnel, OK, there is the rare occasion when someone else doesn't turn up, but in this league that’s not often. There are too many players that are not good enough, Yes, some of the younger players will leave on merit, but we have a few more seasons of this to come, unless something changes. In summary this is written from frustration, knowing we could have done better, but based on our track record, this is as best as it gets, last season was up there with the best, as this season is down there with some of the worst.
  9. Info came from a reasonable source, with Amadou going back.
  10. Ben Gibson Burnley On loan, with a view to a permanent deal in the summer.
  11. For Sinai to come in, I believe a foreigner needs to leave as we have our full quote of 17 no English players.
  12. The losers from this pitiful attempt to retain premiership status is the fans, another without a season ticket rise, I should think so aswell. The management team have done a decent job, OK zonal marking, too late substitutions but the rest on the pitch is down to slightly above average players, well at least 60-40. But once again it's down to the board, totally no ambition as usual, and to hear during an interview Michael and Delia, say the biggest achievement in their time is to be debt free, well it's time you took ya money and got out, yes we should thank you for some of what they have done, but enough is enough.
  13. I know most of you will think this is stating the obvious, but I think we can win enough points to stay up, but not with the current formation, style of play. I appreciate injuries to central defenders are an issue. I think we need to play either 4-2-3-1 or a back three, we look so open when going forward, and we then get picked off, this league is ruthless. Suggestion 4-2-3-1 Krul Aarons, Godfrey, Zimmerman or Hanley, Lewis Amadou, Trybull Buendia, Leitner, Vranic Pukki
  14. Nathan Dyer has stated he felt he was badly treated by the Norwich City players on Saturday. Please share with me in saying, Our poor Nathan
