Jutkiewicz and Kightly - that'll do!
at 21:39 28 Aug 2016

I wouldn't want either in total honesty, Murphy is a real handful at this level, its like replacing a bulldozer with a second hand forklift.

Mings maybe, even though I thought the deal was a good one. Darren Bent wasn't easy to accept, especially given it was quite cheap.

If we lose Murph...
at 20:52 26 Aug 2016

I happen to agree, I don't know what Mick will do but there's no way you can continue the season without finding a more than capable replacement.

Akpom from Arsenal maybe? Will Grigg seems a similar type of player? Maybe renew interest in Donaldson from Birmingham? Anichebe is a free agent, not really prolific but similar type. Mick would really have to use his transfer nous with this one.

£12m for Ashley Williams
at 20:46 9 Aug 2016

Disagree. Strong centre-half, a leader, an organiser, proven at this level, rarely injured. Some centre-halves have their best years at this kind of age, John Terry being one who has sustained a high level of performance for many years.

I think he's in that mould, a bit of a warrior. Put it this way, would you rather splash out £12m on Williams or £27m+ on Otamendi or Mangala? They may be younger but may not adjust to the league.

I think there are a few factors

I think a team can always understand how the opposition like to play and how to defend against certain players. For example teams have played against MM as a manager and Murphy, Sears, McGoldrick, Bishop ect before and so can try and stop them.

Ward is a new player though and so is a bit of an unknown quantity, they don't quite know where he'll be playing and so its difficult to plan how to defend against him.

MM also bought him on at half-time and changed system, something Barnsley were not really prepared for and so realized they had to alter things themselves by which time Ward got his first goal. The change to 4-3-3 gave Ward more licence to push forward.

I also think you are a bit more motivated to impress on a debut and feel a bit less pressure, where as Sears (who has been in a rut goal scoring wise) probably has the fact he's having a drought in the back of his mind.

Alfie Mawson - Barnsley 26
at 05:13 7 Aug 2016

Bristol City are interested in him, there's a player at Bury called Nathan Cameron who is pretty solid, I think if we were to look at a centre half, he would be a decent buy.

I think right back is the main area town fans want improving with regards to the defence. Berra and Smith both a little unconvincing at present though.

Game reminded me of so many from two seasons ago
at 20:12 6 Aug 2016

Ok good to hear your thoughts, cant say I've seen Webster in action as yet so was just putting it out there but will take those who replied to my post' word for it.

I think the biggest problem is that once you've played as a centre-half its difficult to convert, your positional sense must be a bit everywhere because you've had to adapt your game.

Too often we've left men on the back post cause Chambers gets dragged in, it happened with Edwards also. (I like Chambo so don't want to be down on him)

I wasn't at the game today, but how does the idea of pushing Webster out to right back and using Chambers in the centre sound? After all he's a centre half by trade, is that not an idea you would be interested to see?

Welcome to the Championship Newcastle!
at 22:22 5 Aug 2016

I thought Newcastle were terrible in all honesty, lack of imagination, lack of movement, passed the ball to slowly. I was surprised by the line up too, thought they would have had a stronger side given their squad.

Fulham on the other hand looked quite tidy and have pace that will hurt teams, Kevin McDonald in central midfield who they signed from Wolves looked very accomplished.

They signed him pretty early in the window, which also allowed Alex McCarthy to join Southampton. Thought you would have been on that one!

Ross McCormack
at 19:09 2 Aug 2016

I think he scores a lot of goals at Fulham because teams know Fulham are weak defensively and so attack them. This leaves McCormack in a bit of space up front where he can lash in goals from 20 yards.

20 + goals cant be sniffed at but he wont be the main man at Villa, they'll have a few big named players for this division and will try and play more of a passing game I think. Opposition teams will set up to close the gaps and stifle them which means his chances could dry up a bit.

Not knocking his ability but just my thoughts

Lamah off at half time
at 21:49 26 Jul 2016

Could be that he knows he's not 100% fit and so knew 45 minutes would be a decent run out?. Which has no baring on his performance, it was probably already worked out before kick off.

No point giving him 90 minutes when you know he'll tire after about 50 of them and not be able to show his full potential because of it. What do I know.
