Brentford should be our apsirations...
at 15:36 19 Sep 2018

Sounds ridiculous doesn't it. But that should be where we want to be in 12 months. There is a lot of similarities between us and Brentford and if we develop the club the right way its where we could be in 12/18 months under Hurst.

Ill start off by saying under Dean Smith (lower league manager) who went to Brentford from Walsall wasn't perceived a manager playing fluid football at Walsall like we saw last night but has developed it over the course of 18 months after settling on the formation of 4-2-3-1.

This time last year Brentford had 3 points to their name. They could of easily sacked Smith and gone for more experience but they stuck with and have developed a style of play right up there with the best in the league.

As well as that they're not big spenders, and often operate in similar markets as to where we are and should be looking. The total of there squad last night was 12m and considering we spent over 7m this year the gap looks quite significant in terms of ball quality and composure at the moment.
BUT a lot of there players have come from the lower leagues or their academy:
Bentley (GK) - Southend
Konsa (CB) - Charlton
Mepham (CB) - Academy
Sawyers - (AM) - Walsall
Watkins (LW) - Exeter.

I thought the quality and movement in possession from Brentford last night was superb and its where we as a club should be aspiring to be.

Lightbulb moment for Hurst.
at 14:22 19 Sep 2018

Think it will be a lightbulb moment for Hurst. Think the 4-2-3-1 formation and performance will solve his selection problems he’s been having.
Spences long term future was solved last night.

Have a number 9 to lead the line deservedly for the foreseeable future.

The 3 in bebind. Edwards/Nolan/Ward offered much more support to the number 9. That formation means the number 9 won’t be isolated.

Chalobah/Skuse could form a good anchoring pair.

Back four should settle with what we finished with.

Gerken is taking his chance.

Team for Bolton should be the one we finished with.!!

COYB. If Hurst sticks with this philosophy I will be very very happy.

Can’t believe the lunacy I read on here...
at 00:18 19 Sep 2018

Sometimes I’m not happy with certain, sometimes I am happy. But I like to think I always give an honest opinion. But surely people on here can’t be coming in here tonight talking too much negative about the overall 90 minutes.
Granted I thought Spence was very poor but I don’t think he’s ever been a decent player, at the end of the day he was released by a League 1 team; and was signed here under desperate circumstances.

The first 45 minutes was terrible, but the players knew that, PH knew that, and the fans knew that. Anyone annnoyed the fans showed anger are dilluded, we pay very very good money and we expect a lot lot better than what was served up first half.

Second half however showed me a lot of promise that I have found a lot of faith in PH AS LONG AS he sticks with the second half approach. The 4-2-3-1 fitted our players like a glove. I thought our football and pressure was the best I have seen in around 5/6 years. Obviously depends what he does against Bolton but if he builds on the 4-2-3-1 foundation we will be well well clear of relegation this year. If he goes back to boring 4-1-4-1 we will be very dull.


Side note to Brentford who I thought were superb and should be a benchmark for us. Very very slick in possession and actually have a lot of similar traits to Town. Dean Smith came from a lower league (Walsall). A lot of young lower league gems (Watkins & Sawyer).

I’ll also note this time last year Brentford had 3 points.

Does anyone else think Kayden Jackson deserves a run of games.
at 16:19 18 Sep 2018

We paid 1.5 million for him and he's sitting on the bench constantly.

Anyone think PH regrets his signing?

Whatever ive seen of him he looks sharp and deserves a run of games to adapt to life in the champ.

Have a good feeling we will get the win tonight!
at 16:10 18 Sep 2018

Whilst I thought we were shocking at Hull, I think tonight there will be a reaction. As well as the tragic news of The Beat, could be an ignition for a result tonight.
Much needed changes I think need to be implied tonight by PH. Although I think our recruiting was terrible in the summer. We have some talent in the squad.
Team for this evening:
Gerken

Donacien / Pennington / Chambers / Knudsen

Skuse

Edwards / Chalobah / Edun / Graham

Jackson

Subs: Bart, Spence, Rowe, Downes, Harrison, Nolan, Sears

Think that is probably our strongest team right now, although hardly looks intimidating to opponents, Chalobah and Edun are very technically gifted players, with the experience of Skuse as the anchor it could free up more creativity and numbers going forward which is what we drastically need right now.

Look at the transfer dealings- everybody happy?
at 10:46 16 Sep 2018

Spent 7 million. What have we really got to show for it other than edwards?

Oh I was warburton was in charge and had the 7 million.

We had 2.5 million worth of striker on the bench yesterday. Nether have scored a goal and finished 18th top scorer in League 1 and 11th in League 2.
WE PAID 1.5 MILLION FOR THE 11th TOP SCORER IN LEAGYE 2!!! .
Waghorn costs 250,000.

Jon Nolan and Nsiala costs 2 million for the pair. Are they honestly better than Woolfenden and Dozzell/Nydam/Downes.
One is suspended and one is yet to score or get an assist as a creating midfielder.


No wonder Evans doesn’t like giving money. It gets wasted every time. We should have got WARBURTON!!

Give him 10 games.
at 09:25 16 Sep 2018

10 games to get his first win. If not he should leave. Overhaul has been ridiculous. Quality intake has been limited. Formation is incredibly defensive. Football not too dissimilar from Mick.

A lot of teams around us are picking up points early and we are in danger of just drifting away into isolation at the bottom of the table.

Appointment and Transfer policy wrong...
at 17:09 15 Sep 2018

I wasn’t against PH when he was appointed as manager. Although knew he was a man who did score too many goals but didn’t concede to many either.

However we are playing the exact same style of football as MM. You spend 7 million and have one good player to show for it you are in deep trouble. I’m sure Evans does eff all due diligence. How he signed off on all these transfers I don’t know. We look no different to under MM.

Should have got Warburton.

Weekend team...
at 17:17 13 Sep 2018

Just listening to TALKsport and they're talking about the resurrection of the old school 4-4-2. With Uruguay playing well with Cavani/Suarez. Watford starting the season so well with Gary/Deeney.

Think Jon Walters won't be involved from the beginning this week. But Skuse to be fit.

My team selection for Hull Away:
Gerken
Donacien / Pennington / Chambers / Knudsen
Edwards / Skuse / Nolan / Edun
Jackson / Harrison

SUBS: Bart/Spence/Rowe/Walters/Chalobah/Sears/Kenlock.

Interesting press conference.
at 14:31 13 Sep 2018

Seems to be the same old same old in regards to Huws/Bishop/Rowe. Not fit yet, will see where they're at next week.

Collins has had a sneaky little injury, very good timing.

Gerken to remain in goal for the foreseeable future.

And I have no idea what the actual situation with Dozzell is. Hasn't he played something like the same amount of games for the u23's as the first team games played this year. Dont really like the way that situation is going.

Looks like our midfield three for the weekend will be Chalobah/Skuse/Nolan. Which is ok but when you play one up up top. None of which have scored a goal yet, that midfield three doesn't look like it is going to add too much to the attack.

Steven Caulker - free agent.
at 13:24 13 Sep 2018

Just left Dundee on the 1st September. Former Tottenham man is far better than playing in SPL. Says himself he is now "looking for a new challenge".

Only 26 years old still and could be a better long term addition than James Collins, smaller wages, captain of Cardiff in their first premier league season. Could be a solid solid addition.

Commentators on France v Holland are horrendous
at 20:28 9 Sep 2018

They’re talking as if they have no knowledge of the game and just a couple of guys who watch semi pro football once a year.
Absolutely raving about France as if they’re the greatest team to ever win the World Cup. but really wouldn’t be anywhere near the same team without Mbappe.
No team will touch the Spanish team that won the 2010/2012 WC and Euros.

Bring back the striking partnership back...?
at 18:33 8 Sep 2018

Would you consider putting Jonny Walters up alongside Sears, obviously plays his best football through the middle in a 2.

Watford look to bringing the striking partnership back with Gray/Deenet. And doing it in some style in their basic 4-4-2.
