Team for tomorrow...

Who do we think comes in for Skuse? Could we see Dozzell? I know perhaps not the entirely same player but likes to play further back. Or more than likely Downes?

Can see Harrison starting up front as well...

I think he could play a key part when fit. I know he’s not looked all that good under PH but we certainly need to cut everyone some slack and give all the signings a fresh start. We were awful under PH & created nothing. Yesterday wasn’t great in that respect but at least there was signs of improvement & something for the striker(s) to work with.

The sad thing about all this...
at 10:33 22 Oct 2018

Is that a new manager really isn’t likely to make any difference is he? This group of players is just so poor. That side that played Saturday was almost as good as it gets bar the full backs perhaps. There’s just little to no quality in there. We’re desperate for Huws, Bishop & Adeyemi to return to provide a bit more quality and also bit more Championship experience.

It really is just utterly depressing

IF PH does go, who realistically can we attract to replace him?
at 10:59 21 Oct 2018

Warburton? Is he really any good? Not really done it anywhere other than you could say Rangers?

Poyet wouldn’t come here. He’d want money to spend which will just never happen.

Who else is there?

I think we need a change in the midfield badly. I like Skuse, but for me, he’s way too limited on the ball to play the role currently being asked of him.

I’d go for below

Bart

Donacien Nsiala Chambo Knudsen

Chalobah Nolan/Edun

Edwards Dozzell Ward/Graham

Jackson

It’ll look nothing like this I suspect. It’ll likely be below


Gerken

Pennington Nsiala Chambo Knudsen

Skuse Chalobah

Edwards Nolan Ward

Excellent tonight. Wanting the ball & playing it forward. Always showing for the ball.

Chambo, Skuse and Knudsen Just not good enough on the ball. Constantly giving the ball away. They’re used to goofing it & can’t do anything else but.

Stupid thing is, 2nd half we had some good passages, but we’re utterly toothless

Whilst the start isn’t great and far from ideal...
at 11:37 30 Sep 2018

I really do feel as though we should stick with PH regardless of if we go down. We’ve decided to go down this route and enforce a change. Yes, it’s not working yet. But the whole project needs time.

There has been a few things that I’ve certainly not agreed with, but we need to allow time - even if that does mean we ended up going down. I’d be fairly confident that’d allow PH the chance to properly shape his squad for next season.

There are areas of the squad that at present simply don’t allow us to play a more expansive game at present. Knudsen is incapable of passing the ball or provide quality in attacking areas. It’s all rather disjointed.The midfield is the real issue for me. Not sure we’ve really got a number 10. Nolan has already said he’s really a number 8. We’re desperately missing Huws. There is other areas that are also just not clicking. You’d hope that over time & 2-3 more transfer Windows, things will click & we’d get a playing style together.

It’s obviously really frustrating at present & im aware of a few things which appear to be happening behind the scenes. But they’re hopefully being patched up. If PH doesn’t go, you can guarantee it’d be another pragmatic MM style manager that comes in. Frankly, I just can’t be bothered with that - it’d be me done with going to games etc.

But it really doesn’t look like it’ll turn anytime soon.

My one problem with sacking him, who the hell replaces him? It’s not going to be a Young up and coming manager. It’ll be an experienced head which would beg the question, why the hell would/did we let Mick go?

Team for Brentford...
at 11:25 16 Sep 2018

I’d personally like to see the below. Think this is the best team we have available at present.

Bart

Donacien Pennington Chambo Knudsen

Skuse Edun

Edwards Nolan Graham

Walters/Jackson


I’d bring back Bart. Gerken has done nothing wrong, but we know Bart’s the better keeper & we need to be playing our best players. Donacien was playing well before this work permit issue had kicked in. He’s better than Spence from what we’ve seen. As esterday highlighted, he’s just not good enough. Edun should also start. He showed against Exeter that he’s got the ability to play forward and we’re missing that. Downes was poor yesterday - not good enough at present and doesn’t have the ability to play forward.

The only other potential change is Jackson or Walters & I guess that depends on Walters fitness. I realise that’s 3-4 changes, but we need to play the best side we can & then keep it settled & at present, this is it for me.

Team for Hull....
at 12:44 5 Sep 2018

I know it’s early still with over a week until the next game. But the team I’d go for & expect in some ways would be


Gerken

Knudsen Chambers Pennington Donacien

Skuse

Graham Nolan Huws Edwards

Walters


I’d like to see Bart return as he’s clearly the better keeper – although I can’t see that happening. Is Huws fit? I guess we shall see – but I think he should be. You’d think that both Huws/Bishop not featuring in the U23 game on Monday would probably have been with a view that they’re joining in with the first team training this week fully which wouldn’t of happened had they played Monday. Wouldn’t be surprised if they’re doing a mini pre-season this week with perhaps more work on shape etc next week. I can see Huws playing some part in that game – how much remains to be seen. Skuse I suspect will be OK after the 2 weeks break.

Did Graham do enough Sunday to warrant another start? Probably not – but we’re not really littered with all that many options on the left & he might be better after the two weeks training with the rest of the squad. Rowe has been very good for the U23’s – but will he play? Can’t see that happening. Walters I suspect will start up front. Jackson did OK Sunday but think we’ll opt for more experience. Unless Walters moves to the right and Jackson starts up front with Edwards on the left? He played that role for Posh.

The other main question would be do we revert back to the 4-1-4-1 formation? I’d like to think so myself. PH should try and stick to his principals. I can see why he changed things Sunday and went more direct, especially 2nd half with Godfrey at CB & It worked to some degree. But I’d like to think that with a couple of weeks on the training ground we’d have a good chance to work on things and might see an improvement with what we were trying to implement initially.

Will certainly be very interesting to see what happens for that game. I can’t wait myself! These International breaks just get in the way of things although will of hopefully come at a good time for us!

I keep seeing people questioning the turnover in players...
at 10:48 4 Sep 2018

So how would they have avoided that situation?

Waghorn
Webster
Garner
Hyam
Gleeson
McGoldrick
Carayol
Bru

Below loans ended
Connolly
Celina
CCV
Iorfa

Total of 12 players who have left the club since the end of the season. So which of these could/should we of kept on?

If I look at that list, the top three I’d of kept. However, they all wanted to leave - so how does that play out? Stopping players earning more money. I’ve seen comments the last couple of days about players questioning the new regim and PH. Would keeping these players of helped that squad harmony?

McGoldrick would’ve been nice. However, his injury situation over the last couple of years doesn’t justify a big contract. Would he even want to stay?

Of the loans, CCV & Connolly perhaps. CCV we appear to have tried to resign.

For me, when it’s all in black and white, I’m not sure how it could of been avoided - although interested in seeing what other people think could’ve been done to avoid it.
