When chambers picks up his next yellow card, 100% guaranteed he is going straight back in the team even if Parr gets 10 out of 10 for his performances. We all know, for some in that team ,does not matter how they play or how others play in their place they are always guaranteed their starting place. 'One rule for one and one for another!' Springs to mind.
Makienok is going to cause us serious problems, especially if he deliberately puts himself up against Smith. Gerken will struggle against a guy that size also. We need Chambers vs Makienok in the centre and Parr at rb. Bialkowski in goal as he flaps less at crosses and is definitely better at dealing with balls in the air.
Hope we win, but if we stick with our usual defence we will concede goals. 3-4 to ITFC. cOYB
What winds me up is his insistence on playing 4 4 2 and playing Sears and Bru out of position as a result. Neither of them are as effective playing in those positions. The 4 3 3 does work however as you can play sears up front, all be it in one of the positions either side of Murphy. Bru plays better in a midfield 3 as Skuse can sit, with Dougie and Bru either side. And I echo the thoughts regarding Gerken. If Mick can't see we concede more goals a game with Gerken in goal, he is either purposely stubborn over it or not picking the better player in that position. Gerken was at fault for both goals against Wolves. How the ball was able to bounce in the 6 yard box is a joke!!
Only a loan? I was hoping it would be permanent. Rotherham is just about his level, I class him as one of the players (along with Boring Billy) who have put us in the position we are in now. Average mid table championship
Get a grip ...... jim. A few more options for us wouldn't go amiss either. How many players have been on loan and benefitted by coming back into the team ..... ??? ....... after supposedly 'needing games' and 'getting fit'.
Main focus is to save on wages - full stop. Like it, or not.
