    Bradley Dack

    He is a player who consistently scores goals, at least a 1 in 3 scorer as a number 10 at this level, you dont have his consistent statistics without being more than just a Sky camera player.
  2. Bennett was run ragged by Diakhaby, totally lost his bearings for the penalty and was not good at all.

    Definitely dont think there is much between the squads, and certainly agree that the main difference is the quality of managers, but I think you underestimate the quality of their players. Ben Davies, Patrick Bauer, Ben Pearson, Daniel Johnson, Tom Barkhuizen, Seani Maguire, Paul Gallagher and the 2 full backs (with Cunningham injured) would all get into our side.

    Simple question, Mowbray out, yes or no.

    That decision somewhat quashes the notion that VAR is a tool being used to get Liverpool a title...

    Championship season 2019-20

    Some potential positions of peril in the Championship. Jonathan Woodgate doing a really poor job at Middlesbrough, fans whinged about the "boring" football Pulis produced, now they are getting boring football AND awful results. Cant see him lasting the season. Also totally unconvinced by Scott Parker with the best squad in the division at his disposal. Played a wrecklessly attacking formation yesterday and suffered defeat, they should be doing better. Cocu at Derby seems to be really struggling too. He is obviously unable to rely on favours from big teams for players such as Mount and Wilson like Lampard could, plus hes had the disaster surrounding Lawrence and Bennett, but a penny for Wayne Rooneys thoughts from afar.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Your questions are in the main irrelevant to my question of do YOU want Mowbray out. Who will choose is irrelevant, if its left to Waggott he will keep his mate Mowbray in, I want you to choose what you want. Do you want Mowbray out? If yes, who would be your number 1 choice as manager? I dont see the need to box off whether he is British or not either. We shouldnt only focus on one or the other, our choice should simply be the best man for the job, not the best nationality. Agreed on the failure of the Brereton and Gallagher signings. We currently cant defend and lack a goalscorer. With 12m you would think some would be allocated to each problem area. As he has blown it all up top, you would think he could have at least solved that problem area. As it is, he has signed 2 total duds which is unforgivable. We saw yesterday who is the natural full back, and who is the senior player and managers favourite who was given a torrid time, lost his bearings for the penalty, sadly we know who will start in that position when we have someone for LB. As it is, even now I would go Downing left, Nyambe right. Chapman is a weird one, scored again midweek, was up for player of the month last month, I know I am speaking from an ignorant position having not attended but I struggle to accept he has been as bad as people say.

    Are you still of the opinion that you want the manager out?

    Huddersfield - Saturday Lunch for Sky

    Johnson has at least one or two moments in every game without fail where he puts us in massive trouble being caught in a dangerous area. Again he did yesterday, with Williams bailing him out with a last ditch tackle. I also felt that they got in the spaces behind him too easy. He played a lovely pass to Holtby, a great cross to Dack at the back post and did a couple of other useful things, but as always there are a couple of really dodgy moments in there. I have been slightly disappointing so far based on what I thought we were getting. Agree with you, the ball was a strikers dream. Goes back to something I have said about Gallagher before. He doesnt get himself into goalscoring positions, he never looks like scoring and he cant anticipate where the ball will go, hes a crap striker and a waste of money. Made no sense to bring him on over Graham.

    He did put in a superb cross in the second half. Our 5m striker was nowhere to be seen.

    Huddersfield - Saturday Lunch for Sky

    Another throwing away of points and proof that our neglected defence will continue to stunt us. For much of the first half we were much better, but more dropped points and poor second half. Bennett had a torrid game at left back, but he has to play somewhere for some reason. Walton is also not good enough, pathetic for their second, no better than Raya. Holtby absolutely superb and shouldnt have been taken off, him and Dack together were very impressive. Nyambe was a big improvement at right back, but will no doubt be undeservedly dropped when Bell is back and Bennett can revert back to right back. Adarabioyo is an interesting one. Passing out in the main was excellent, but I am totally unconvinced by his potential ability to cope with physicality. Seems laid back and flimsy. Williams as always is nothing more than a lower half defender at this level. Downing very economical on the ball, Armstrong very average, Travis walking on eggshells after a booking but otherwise fine, Johnson a total enigma. One superb pass, one superb cross, and a few other bits and pieces that impressed. But often they got in behind him, and as always, he often needlessly surrendered possession. Gallagher as per usual proving that he is a waste of valuable money. Evans the perfect man to bring on when you need a goal with 10 minutes to go. We never threaten or show any urgency when we need a goal near the end, not good enough.

    I can honestly say that I have never heard anything like that in the Blackburn End so can only presume it was inaudible to him. Booing everytime he got the ball? By how many? This narrative of our fans not supporting our own players on match days is one that I am oblivious too. Criticising on here on social media is fine, its the place to do it.

    Huddersfield - Saturday Lunch for Sky

    To be fair, Bell has been shocking for us, defensively negligent, flattering to deceive going forward and half hearted and at times cowardly in the process. He has proven over a period of time that he is quite frankly incompetent and symptomatic of exactly why we concede so many goals.

    Well thanks for the patronising permission to be able to criticise the scourge of the club over the last 10 seasons or whatever. That they are interested is not enough. If theres something they dont agree with I will say so. Mowbray is interested but I will still criticise him when his team underperforms and bores me doing so. But its his way, so surely I shouldnt criticise? Certain players are interested but still not performing, but thats "their way," right?! I am not going to give Venkys any credit for giving a shit about a club they own! There was little option but to give the players a week off because half of the staff including the manager and his assistant were in India. A couple of days off to refresh may have been wise but a whole week?! Weve got a flimsy defence, a misfiring attack and have just been battered by a mediocre side. Our next opponents have seemingly spent more time than us preparing and training for Saturday. A far more efficient way would be either for them to get off their arses and come to England, or more obviously, especially considering that we are mid season, is to talk over skype or similar. To go over mid season to show them videos about the work in the training centre etc is quite ludicrous considering the distance. Its their way, and its a perfect example of how these idiots owning us will always be backwards. I find it strange that you bend over backwards to defend our owners often contrary to logic to be honest but there you go.

    Just because they prefer it doesnt mean it is the most efficient way or above criticism. The manager and assistant manager shouldnt be spending half of an international week in India unnecessarily IMO.
