This has to be the team against Norwich..
at 18:30 2 Feb 2019

Bree Chambers Collins Kenlock
Bishop Downes Chalobah
Keane Sears

I believe Chambo and Collins will be ready. I may even consider Knudsen at left.

Downes holding, Judge behind the front 2.
We really lack any invention...

It’s sickening that we have so many bodies in midfield the are getting in each other’s way ffs!!!!

Yet just can seem to push the extra one up to support a very lonely figure (whoever it may be)

I call this a “Hurst formation” is been so poisonous for us this season... we looked clueless today and NEVER looked like worrying their keeper... so sad.
I’ll probably get caned for this...

But Bishop in for Skuse this Saturday for me. Ole Cole ain’t been his best since he came back from injury - a weak link in there too often in recent games.

Might give us a bit more forward thinking - it’s been very frustrating the amount of possession we have without looking to penetrate at times, we have a high completed pass rate looking at recent stats, but when a considerable percentage of those completed passes are between the defenders and goalie (which scares the life out of me at times) it doesn’t help us worry teams like we should be.

Team for Rotherham....

Huddersfield ST holder view on Quaner
at 17:15 9 Jan 2019

If anyones intrested. My mate text me been a Terriers ST holder for some seasons:

“Hey up Johnny. BTW saw you signed Quaner from us. Prepare for a love him/hate him cult hero type. Awkward as f*ck and all over the place but shakes defences up, runs straight at them (terrorised Arsenal last year), never scores but makes a lot of assists - he's a decent loan!”
Generally... is there any point in loans...

Unless there’s a possibly and definite option to buy at the end of the loan?

PL has rightly stated, long term no, they are not your playes, and your back to square one when they go back. You have no team of your own.

Situation 1.. You have loans to improve your team/squad and you survive relegation. This has been our way of doing things for a few years and proves the point of no progression - and also in our case, stops the youngsters developing in numbers and getting their chance to progress with ITFC.

Situation 2.. You get promoted, and your team is immediately weakened when the players go back.. could end up in relegation. (Would suit ME as he’d get to pocket parachute payments and make money from the club that way.)

Situation 3.. You get loans and sell your best academy produce to make money. Get relegated and start all over again even weaker. Result, demise of a club.

For me loans should only used to bolster numbers for cover, not 1st team. But again, who would loan out players to sit on the bench?..... oh...... we do.

Any other thoughts?

Right... we all know this is the WORST it’s ever been.

It’s been coming, you don’t have a good team when your ‘keeper gets player of the season consecutively - he has a poor team in front of him, end of. MM kept us afloat with old wise heads and non ‘dangerous’ drivel boring football.

It’s hard to see any positives. Maybe perhaps it had to get this bad for Evans to wake up and change his way of running the club?... be serious, we can’t compete financially with lots of clubs in this league.. not just one or two. We are a big club, but are now gonna do a “Sunderland / Wigan / Norwich... etc.

I do hope PL stays and Evans supports him to a higher level than he currently is - cause let’s face it, he’ll need to invest quite a bit to get us out of League 1 even
Some clubs down there have bigger budgets than us.

What’s the best we can hope for now?
