Re: MATCHWATCH : Rotherham united (a)

Happy with Meite coming back on the bench to start with. Desperately need him fit. He scores goals, and important ones at that. Its not really like any team has outplayed on this recent crap run, and we've still created chances and scoring opportunities. At least with him and Puscas back, we have 3...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a)

4-2-3-1 Is a good formation to start a match and we generally play well using this formation, but when chasing the game you have to change things up and i really believe 4-2-3-1 isn't the option in this situation. Revert back to basics and try 4-4-2, utilize the flanks and get quick balls into the b...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a)

5-3-2 or 3-5-2 they are basically the same really, 5-3-2 when defending and 3-5-2 with the wing backs attacking! This formation really looks like it could work for our current crop of players. It allows us to play all three of our central defenders together, it allows Yiadom and Richards to naturall...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a)

Time for something different, so i would go 5-3-2: Cabral Yiadom Holmes Moore McIntyre Richards Laurent Olise Tetek Joao Puscas Lets not kid ourselves, this will be a tough game and Wycombe are desperate for points and will battle to the death. We don't have wingers so lets play with wing backs, and...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a)

And Puscas on the bench, at least a decent forward option for once. I Reckon Esteves wide right, Olise behind Joao and Semedo dropping back with Rino I guess you could interchange both Yiadom and Esteves, both can play either RB or wide right, so i guess they can keep switching it up to give the le...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bournemouth (h)

The Riquelme question is very fair imo. Hes played 100 odd minutes? He could easily have featured heavily for us so far this season. But I'm not upset. Aluko has done well and we are finally getting some value from him. This looks a bit like the Richards scenario, do you go with the bigger team (Ba...

Re: January window

Remember Danny Loader he seems to be finding the net for Porto B team with 7 goals in 15 appearances i believe. Not a bad return and maybe could get a sniff at the first team before to long.

Re: January window

Jokull Andresson returns to us after a solid two games in goal on emergency loan to Morecambe, looking at the goalkeeper situation I can honestly see Southwood being released at the end of the season, Andresson and CBC are younger and appear to have greater potential. Our keeper situation is a bit ...

Re: January window

Seems fairly likely that we are trying to get Reiss Nelson in from Arsenal. I thought we were looking for a striker and defender but I’d be happy with this, finally add some competition for Ejaria who perhaps may not play 90 minutes every week even in games where he contributes very little And, of ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a)

Hound Yep that’s the other thing Swift needs to not hand off to someone else. Get him on penalty duties


Puscas is by far our best penalty taker, but he's never really on the pitch to take one lol... :lol:

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Was the sub for tactical resaons or injury? I don`t know for sure but going on previous comebacks from injury for players playing for the U23`s i would say it was to ease him back "gently" Fingers crossed, that is the reason, it does make sense not to expect any player to go 90 minutes in...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Coventry City (h)

Holmes ahead of Esteves every time. Otherwise the above. Suspect we may see Semedo in for Olise though. Hi Snowflake, i think Esteves is slowly growing into the championship and really there's not much between them now. Holmes is a bit better at the defending side of view and has a mistake in him a...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a)

I'm sorry, but the FA Cup has turned into a bit of a "Joke" competition. Back in the 70s & 80s the first two rounds of the cup were always the most exciting games to play, and hoping to make it to the third round and draw one of the big teams was stuff of dreams. Now just about all the...

We do have Araruna coming back to fitness this month. And i belive Defensive Midfied is his specalised position, so would be back up to cover Laurent and Rinhomota if they get injured.

Re: BFTC - Huddersfield

Slow start, but Huddersfield didn't really threaten much bar the goal and the last 10 minutes. Felt we took a while to get into the game, but looked the more likely. Rafa - 7 one very good save Holmes - 6 at fault on the goal, but nearly made up for it with one of his own Richards - 7 pretty good M...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Swansea City (a) sponsored by a no pressure game

Good point against a very tidy Swansea side, especially with our injury crisis. With the calvalry back in the New Year and get Swifty back is like a new signing, i really believe we could be dark horses and take a play off spot. Play-Offs? I EXPECT the PO's. Nobody below us is special. I would say ...
