Not sure either Benno or Nyambe are that great.

I agree---is this what we have been reduced to? Arguing over which of the 2 players is worse?

 With a decent defence we wouldn't be giving a thought to either of them.

I can’t remember Gallagher making an effective header. I’d say he is poor at them.

Agreed and surprised anyone sees it any other way. He wins a lot because he's playing against midget left backs. Put him in the box and he doesn't attack headers whatsoever.

What's up with him? We really need him back to cover for Dack. Also I have vague hopes he might score a few.

This years Jack Rodwell this lad.

He won't be here next season.

According to the LET he signed a contract through to June 2021.

I posted this in another thread a few days ago, but he's constantly posting 'stories' on his Instagram of ice baths and rehabilitation boots. It doesn't look as though his body can cope with the rigours of Saturday-Tues/Weds football, while he's also prone to injuries. Both of these reasons explain why he's here, IMO.

He did. I fully expect it to be "torn up" at the end of the season by mutual consent. We'll see.

They said in the first week of his arrival that his fitness levels were already up there as the best at the club.

Now he's come to England and struggling according to Mowbray?

Something doesn't really add up and suggests we may have been sold a crock.

Yes i remember that too - he was the 4th fittest out of the entire squad I remember reading.

Could be just an injury, that wouldn't take anything away from him turning up here fit, it happens. It's just odd there has been no mention of a specific injury.

When are we going to sign a player that actually gets you out of your seat the first time you see him play ?  I remember watching Bohinen for the first time and thinking " What a player " ditto Berkovic. Going back before those two, seeing Alan Wright for the first time and thinking before the game  " Bloody hell, he's tiny ". 90 minutes later thinking " That's what I call a left full back ".

Several of Mowbray's signings have come with fairly big reputations and they've not lived up to them. So far Holtby is one of them.

I know it was only league one, but it was probably Chapman for me.

It had felt like an age since the last time I saw someone come on and sprint past people at pace and have a half decent final ball too.

Unfortunately I can't see that Chapman producing the goods here, injuries and Mowbray have put pay to that.

Yes, he'd an immediate impact, if only coming off the bench. Then you think of all the other signings that have just induced a feeling of " He's pretty ordinary ".

I think it says it all about our training methods and general fitness.  The players clearly aren't fit. That's why games end with a whimper and we can't cope when teams go for us.

We're not in the right shape physically or mentally. Not just the players but the whole set up. The film I saw of our training left me with the impression that it's all very cosy, everything is done for them they're being spoon fed to the nth degree. Not enough is being demanded of players in terms of real effort and commitment.
