  1. What? Was class when he came on today
  2. Reality is we are going to struggle to do much better then this at this stage of the season. Was criminal not to sign another CB last summer.
  3. Unfortunately, despite being very pleased initially with our summer business you are somewhat correct. Good: The Belgium. Elliott -although only a loan. Dolan - although having Elliott is actually hindering his development. Okay: Downing - not really involved yet few decent cameos, depends on how much we are paying him. Trybull- certainly wouldn't sign him but a slight upgrade on Evans. Bad: Ayala- maybe okay if he was ever fit. Imagine he's on a fair wage. Was always the risk and the risk meant we should have signed a 2nd CH. Douglas- o
  4. It would be like the opposite to when we used to play Samba as a striker in the big Sam days. I actually agree with you, Gally is not a great attacker but what often gets him in the team sheet is his defensive Workrate.
  5. Agreed, we would all prefer if we win and play well. We played much better last 2 games and got 0 points. Today we played rubbish and got 3. Today felt like the home game against Barnsley last year when Tony nearly walked. I think a loss today would have been a tipping point. Instead he lives another day, with a string of fixtures I'd mark as being achievable to get points. In which I mean we are mainly playing bottom half teams.
  6. It's almost uncool to congratulate TM but he certainly deserved it today. He managed that 2nd half very well. I believe his thinking of Buckley at RB was he'd be similar to JRC in that position and out of the 4 we had at the back at the time could offer the long pass out. However his instant reaction to tactics following Brentford's final subs decided our game.
  7. I'm going to play devils advocate but that graph says very little. If you take more shots your expected goals will naturally be higher. In fact it was interesting to see T. Dolan doesn't take many shots but usually they are expected to score. I'd rather see a graph of expected goals Vs goals scored. That said Armstrong is vital to us and he gets himself in places to be able to score
  8. Yea I initially assumed Douglas coming off was tactical and to protect us against a card happy Ref. On Wharton I'm gutted, I assume it's a season ender or is it less? Either way he's waited years and this was his breakthrough. I hope he gets another chance when he's back
  9. I Kind of see the game being the opposite to Saturday but equally the same. I picture more the Nottingham Forrest/ Cardiff game. I don't see Milwall coming with the High press but i worry for the counter. Pressing hard will be key for us.
  10. https://www.readytogo.net/smb/threads/graham.1534736/ I see things got no better. While I was gutted to see him leave the timing was right
  11. Part of the problem is we haven't sold a player for a while so we don't realise how inflated the market is. We naturally compare 7m to the fee we paid Rhodes a 20 goal a season player. Now a top English championship striker can fetch 30m if a pl club comes sniffing. The key to Brereton is if he ever gets consistent enough one does. There's a large difference in expected fee if a fellow championship team take an interest in your player then PL teams wanting to take the gamble.
  12. The Key to us playing well or not seems to be us playing 1 CDM or 2. When we play 1 we boss it when we play 2 eg. Johnson and Trybull or Evans and Johnson etc we don't perform. Rothwell and Holtby together with a CDM is absoloutly perfect.
  13. Interesting I saw news today Ben is eligible to play for Chilie as his mother was born there. Would be bizarre if he ever made that team. Don't think he'll ever be England material. https://redgol.cl/amp/seleccionchilena/Ex-delantero-de-la-Sub-20-de-Inglaterra-quiere-jugar-por-Chile-Soy-seleccionable-20201123-0050.html
