  1. No real words to describe this shambles of a window (if it stays like this). All of these wingers being brought in to play false 9 makes me angrier than it should. Mowbray hoping at least one of these players comes good but it shouldn’t come down to this. where’s the forward planning?
  2. Would usually get on board with something like this. However, Gallagher has the touch of a bouncy castle and the footballing intelligence of a nat so it's a big no from me. We could try him up front though, in the middle. You know, in his actual position? Would probably do okay there.
  3. Course he does! Glad Armstrong is being sorted out sooner rather than later.
  4. Seeing people on Twitter claiming Armstrong to Palace is a done deal. That’s a new one! Hopefully there’s a bidding war. We’ve got to pay our floodlight bill.
  5. 3 years? Madness. If WBA get promoted he won’t be staying - average player. Glad he didn’t come in on a 3 year deal.
  6. Seems far more sensible than J*B's prediction. Said this many times on twitter but we are an absolute joke club at the moment. To be in the position we are is an absolute embarrassment. Loaning other clubs youngsters is so counter productive too. Unless you're loaning an Elliot we should be playing our own youngsters. Time to look after our own investments. What's supposed to be our model again?
  7. Think they mean this. Anyway, back to transfers. Hoping we at least do something within the next week. Goes without saying but it's pretty alarming we've had no real links to anyone. Silence is deafening.
  8. Not logged on for a while but good to see we've made our first signing early for once. What position does this lad, Data play?
  9. I’ve had a bit of time off the forum - for my sanity mainly 😅 Things haven’t been good enough on the pitch for weeks now and I am hooping Tony can turn it around as I don’t see him going. Team for today would be: Kaminski Nyambe Lenihan Mr Miyagi Douglas Travis Rothwell Davenport Elliot Armstrong Dolan Rothwell is miles more effective playing in the middle, Tony needs to stop sticking him out wide again. Brereton hasn’t been the same since his injury so he should sit this one out! Dolan deserves a start in my opinion
  10. Can see us putting 4 past these. This could end up like Wycombe but Preston look even worse
  11. Credit to Gallagher there. Had a good half and that run was superb. The player that got sent off was utter garbage haha
  12. He’s looked slow today but they all have. Everyone looks off the pace
  13. Yeah, agree with this! Play him in his natural position or take him off. Playing him here will quickly make him a scapegoat to the fans - can already see it happening on this very thread
  14. That’s just untrue. Not playing well today? Yes. Played well in his other games prior to this? Yes.
  15. Well, he should be out on loan because he’s not good enough for us. Doesn’t have the work rate or the strength for this division.
  16. I don’t think it’s so much Trybull’s fault he’s not having a good game. He’s being asked to play a role that doesn’t suit his strengths at all / isn’t where he plays. Either swap him with BJ or take him off. But I won’t say he’s rubbish because it’s classic Mowbray playing players out of position! Without Holtby we need Elliot in CM with Rothwell and one of BJ and Trybull
  17. All of our back 4 are academy graduates? That’s nice.
  18. Had no excitement for this game all week. Properly on a downer about the whole thing! But now I have a beer in my hand, I am feeling optimistic and looking forward to the game. I am sure I will feel frustration and dumbfounded at 5pm but for now - COYB. also, Pears has COVID? Can anyone shed any light on why everyone at the club keeps getting it? Surely they should be shielding and distancing when not at the training ground?
  19. I'm not saying I don't agree that we will be better when the injured players come back. I am saying I don't agree with the narrative that we didn't have any shots because all of our players are out. Tony got it wrong last night, that's the long and short of it. I am under no illusions that when our full-strength team is out, we will be a far sight better. However, we have a SQUAD now that has good depth. Tony even mentions it all the time that our SQUAD is good enough to be up there. So which is it? we still need to be able to perform with the team we put out last night. Yeah, not as good as what it could be but still good enough in my opinion. Sick of the excuses.
  20. I struggle to find sympathy with Mowbray and his injury excuses for the lack of shots in the second half last night. If you look at our team last night in the 2nd half it's not too far away from what we would have usually ended a game with last season. It's arguable that Armstrong and Travis are big misses but the rest is what we would have had to deal with last season when we were managing to be competitive. ie. 3-1 win against Bristol after Covid break. Last night: Pears (arguably just as bad as Walton) Nyambe (better than Bennett) Lenihan Williams JRC (better than Bell) Evans Holtby Rothwell Elliot (better than what we had last season) Gallagher Brereton Last season: Walton Bennett Lenihan Tosin JRC Travis Evans Downing Gallagher Holtby Brereton Basically, what I am saying is the injuries do not wash with me. On paper we still have a squad with the injuries that is better than what we had to deal with last year. I'd have last nights second-half team to beat the Bristol team.
