I know that we are in the midst of The Euros, In/Out debate and football Finals, but just saw The Red Hot Chili Peppers with James Cordon on a clip from The Late Late Show, 10 years ago they played at Portman Road. Have we anything lined up for the future? normally football and music is a (good match).
Time to turn Freddie into right wing dynamo? He has lightening speed, an eye for a goal, but is not prepared to use his left foot. Played wide on the left he is a good, hardworking player wasted as he always wants to cut inside onto his right foot. For those saying Freddie should be playing on the shoulder of the last defender, then a brute of a centre forward or Murphy in his prime is required, or an intelligent midfield playmaker, perhaps McGoldrick. I think that the loss of a real star Fraser, through injury, McGoldrick and Bishop long term injuries, the late arrival of Murphy for pre-season training has blighted our season. Added to the total lack of respect for Cup competitions, as fans, we have been cheated of the fun that we expect in supporting our local team.
We need to have a young 1st team squad to improve. With no Reserve League, the next thing to the 1st team is the U21 squad. Only 3 overage players plus keeper can play in this league. We have an aging squad that has steadied the ship, but with several not playing in either set up, why are they here?
Our home form has been abysmal this season, our away form better until of late. Last year we punched above our weight, Murphy on fire that got us a play off place. This year without Fraser on loan and doing two mans work for us, we look nothing, we have been dross since his injury. This current squad has been found out, opposition Managers can pick their team, MM blindly puts out a formation to get a point. Time for MM to get on the front foot and pick his team to win a game and let other Managers worry about us, if we are not good enough, then MM, TC and ME need to address the situation, because what we as fans, do not find the current entertainment value acceptable.
Is he crap on the training ground? MoM against Forest, yet not given a chance since. Surely in home games he could be picked to play alongside Skuus in centre midfield. He is the only player in recent games that has demanded the ball wanting to create. MM pick the team that you want to WIN and stop picking a team to negate inferior teams...let them worry about us for a change. Mick come and join us in the upper tiers of any part of our stadia, you will see no pattern of play, you would look down on yourself barking fruitless orders to players picked in wrong positions and see a hard working but disjointed set of players trying to be a team.
