Sheff Weds are being completely overrun here… wonder what McKenna
at 12:09 7 May 2022

Just for context, KM had 23 games, double his points tally, we still wouldn't have made the play offs...

Fraudiola needs to spend another few hundred million on Haaland this summer, may get the job done then.

For anyone wondering why Simpson would want to leave...

My initial point stands, if you're a youngster, why on earth would you want to sign any long term deal here with no clear pathway to the first team...

What about Baggott?

Humphreys looked pretty decent earlier in the season in the cup game...

You'd kind of hope after 4 or 5 months he'd know about his players now though wouldn't you?

Maybe one of these youngsters could step up and play a part next season? How would he know, he's not seen them play a first team game?

If you're a youngster, why would you want to sign a long term contract here knowing opportunities will be limited.

Today's game, nothing riding on it, not one youngster starting...

Surely this is a perfect game to start 1 or 2?

What's your views on the academy situation here then Joe? Thinking about Dyers comments as well. Taking a back burner? Used more as a trading tool as such?

1-4-2 record against top half sides under McKenna
at 17:29 19 Mar 2022

Of course not, but we've all seen what not beating the top sides in this divisions means when Lambert was here and that return isn't too dissimilar is it?

For what it's worth, we're clearly making progress, but a bit of context needed for those that think we will storm the league next season.

Not good enough is it and certainly not going to cut it next season.

20 goals in 16 games... Not good enough. Its all well and good keeping clean sheets and controlling games, but we create very little clear cut chances or chances in general.

For all the love in everyone's giving McKenna, massive improvements needed next season or we will fall short again.

Where did McKenna ball go? The squad/club mega issue returning
at 11:20 6 Feb 2022

You missed Bolton off of your list.

We've played poor in the last 5 or so games now. Yes we've won alot, but we've also played alot of the divisions poorest sides so some perspective is certainly needed. We can't play this badly against the top 6 and expect to win, its not good enough.

There seems to be an obsession with possession, but what's the point of 71% possession like the first half and then doing nothing with it? All seems rather pointless to me. We've got to tweak things somewhat, especially in CM, you can't play Evans and Carroll, way too similar. El Miz should be starting Tuesday for me ahead of Carroll.

The current performances remind me of Lambert time here. Results against poor sides are really papering over the cracks. Yes, we're winning, but it's more down to us having more quality than actually building anything or being a cohesive team.

Early days under KM, but we seem to be going backwards currently rather than forwards, which is a concern.

The play offs are long gone. No where near consistent enough to bridge a 9 point gap

Too many poor performers out there today
at 15:59 5 Feb 2022

Yep. We've basically got two sitting midfielders at home to Gillingham with 3 CB's. No runners from midfield.

Not sure how we're trying to score really but this is really poor. It's like Lambert has returned.

We might sneak a win by virtue of the fact we have better players but this isn't good enough

What happened to the recruitment team that was being setup?
at 12:10 1 Feb 2022

Edwards, Barry & Harper with the WBA links?

I'm sure there was mention of some others who all shared the same agent...

Looks like the squad is weaker since it was this time a month ago....
at 08:34 1 Feb 2022

Both the signings have been very strange really. Coulson obviously fit again, why bring in Thompson? Bakinson been terrible, again, why bring him in when we got players of similar ilk in the squad?

As I've said in another thread, need to build a squad for next season now which should've meant using players who will be here next year.

Wasn't Scott Barron meant to be returning?

We need to get something in place if we're to be successful. Can't have MA cherry picking old players and hoping things work out. Needs to be a wider and more properly thought out process if we're to be a success.

Last 3 games. Average 65% of the ball. 6 shots on target in 3 games
at 09:46 30 Jan 2022

Would it? It didn't against Bolton and it didn't really against Wimbledon either.

Lots of passing between CB's with no penetration.

Very reminiscent of Lambert Ball. Winning against lesser opposition because we have more quality in certain situations.

The fickleness is amazing
at 17:52 29 Jan 2022

Pretty much this. Not sure what type of player he is. Didn't dictate the game with his passing and isn't really an enforcer and seems too lazy as a box to box type. Strange signing.

Why sign Bakinson when we have El Mizouni?

What's the excuse for first half?

Bakinson injury is probably the only highlight from this game (n/t)
at 17:06 29 Jan 2022

He was woeful. Utterly bizzare signing.

We were told Ashton likes a signing, this seems to be one of those situations. Wasn't needed and no better than El Mizouni or Harper in all honesty.
