  4. I think cleverley is a big step up from KEA. He closes down players well and keeps the ball well. Let's see what he offers now the teams looking more settled.

  13. But at the same time we're to accept the assertion that Cleverley is a dreadful player who would be completely hopeless, is worse than KEA, and has added literally nothing since joining the club? That's a fair evaluation, but Westwood-as-mediocre is ridiculously harsh?

  17. Happy Christmas you miserable people. I just am not excited for Christmas this year at all, I think it's because im not in full time education anymore and i've become more of an adult with getting a job and looking at getting my own place in the summer. Hopefully once i've opened all my presents in the morning and then stuffed my face with chocolate and alcohol maybe i'll feel a little bit more festive. Probably will find myself on here tomorrow night, in the meantime I hope you all have a good Christmas day and Santa brings you everything you want.

  20. I was wondering this. Did our fans hate Young as soon as he joined United or only after he dived to win a penalty against us in 2012? He got a good round of applause when he first came back and then completely clattered into Albrighton which drew a few boos. But yeah the infamous dive did it for any future goodwill.

  22. Vlaar was also directly responsible for QPRs first goal, Clark did nothing wrong in that game either, but keep it up DC..

  27. But at the same time we're to accept the assertion that Cleverley is a dreadful player who would be completely hopeless, is worse than KEA, and has added literally nothing since joining the club? That's a fair evaluation, but Westwood-as-mediocre is ridiculously harsh? In a Villa shirt, KEA offered far, far more than Cleverley has so far. Not sure why that's such a crazy statement. KEA had about 4 outstanding games in a Villa shirt, a fair amount of ok performances but mostly he was incredibly average and so slow at getting at players, which used to be his MO. Maybe we could have used him better, but very few on here really got upset when he left. Not sure KEA's MO was to do that to be honest. at Feyenoord he played the Westwood role but slightly more mobile. It was Lambert's use of him in that role that made people think thats what he was about. fair enough, he did seem like someone who could run at and tackle the whole team, but he was probably more technical than we give him credit. it feels like the old fashioned creative midfielder is a dying breed, unless you have tens of millions to buy that player from abroad

  36. You might be right but it seems a massive coincidence that the exact moment he's ready is the exact moment there are no other fit defendersThat probably wasn't the exact moment he was ready. But that was a good opportunity to give him a chance. And he's taken it. I agree with that, I just think there were other chances he could have come in which could have helped us and stopped okore getting frustrated. If we hadn't had injuries what would be looking at? Probably okore wanting to leave in a couple of weeks. It's not really an issue to criticise Lambert over, it's not an easy one where there's a clear right way to do everything. But at the same time IMO it wasn't handled perfectly and actually we've been fortunate that we've now got a top player happy and playing week in week out. What would managing him perfectly entail then? Putting him in the team earlier at the expense of well-performing CBs and possibly before he's ready? Just to keep him happy so we don't lose him (which wasn't going to happen anyway, and if it did it would have been on loan). That's not good management, or even realistic management. You keep saying well performing cb. He could have replaced clark after he was poor against arsenal. He could have replaced baker after the Chelsea game and consecutive 3-0 losses. He could have replaced Clark after his poor performance against QPR. After that poor performance he could have been on the bench against Everton and replaced baker when he got injured. Crazy to look back on that spell and think there were no realistic opportunities for okore to come into the team. There were realistic options. The manager chose someone else. What's the issue here? We are told he wasn't quite there, all hell would have broke lose if he'd played and injured himself again. We have to take what we're told at face value, we have no evidence to the contrary. In fact, from what I recall he was only performing OK for the U21's, a long way from premier league standard and in line with his pre season performances. Perhaps given the chance in the big team he has thrived on it and stepped up a gear. It's very hard to judge how a player might react in that situation until they show you so and at the time it was obviously not worth the risk. Why would the manager hold him back intentionally if he knew he had this in him? Ridiculous assertion. This debate is serving no purpose whatsoever.

  41. We let 3 in against arsenal, a game in which if i remember correctly a lot of people were putting the blame on Clark for at least one of the goals (1). We then let 3 in against chelsea, 2 against city, 3 against a poor everton side, 2 against QPR, 2 against spurs, who also had some very good chances before we were down to 10 men(2) and the only reason we kept a clean sheet against west ham was because guzan was brilliant and they finished poorly. There were other issues in those games but not sure how anyone can look at that run and decide it was unthinkable to drop any of our defenders based on that.(3) We certainly weren't a defensive rock in many games despite a few decent individual performances in our defence. 1) Clark wasn't in favour at that point and was picked out of necessity. 2) I know how many we conceded - but those are, bar QPR, most of the best teams in the division. 3) None of the centre backs who started those games played badly enough individually to deserve dropping. Simple. 1) Regardless of why he was picked you said defence wasn't a problem. Read the Clark thread, it clearly was a problem in that game. 2) Good teams or not if we're conceding and losing surely it's not crazy to change the defence. And Everton and Spurs were certainly not playing like top teams at that point. 3) None of them had terrible games but then a defence has to be a unit and that unit was not stopping teams scoring or creating good chances, even though there were some good individual performances. It wouldn't have been completely unreasonable to have changed the defence at some point. I don't think you realise how poorly the Clark example serves your point. He played badly against Arsenal, and was dropped for the Chelsea game despite being available for selection. In fact, here is a clear example of Lambert dropping a centre back when he plays poorly. Does this not suggest that in the other games, the centre backs just didn't play that poorly? Per the other two points, conceding goals against top half teams is exactly what bottom half teams do. Stoke didn't play very well against Chelsea last night, do you expect Shawcross to be dropped for the next game? Of course not, conceding goals against those teams is priced in. You don't immediately leap to the conclusion that your defence has played badly because they've conceded a couple of goals to Champions League chasers. Basically, there are thousands of legitimate sticks to knock Lambert with, but you've picked one of the few where he's genuinely impervious. He signed the player. He brought the player into the team when necessary. He has gotten some brilliant performances from the player in recent games. RE Okore, Lambert is on safe ground.
