    If he goes away to the Championship on loan and plays the whole season and score five goals, then I would agree. He goes and scores 15-20 goals, then he could come back a totally different player. If he can get into the habit of scoring, he would be an asset.
  2. Lets get the ball into area between the six-yard line and penalty spot on a regular basis then we can judge. He has to hold the ball up deep, because our wingers are deep, and they very rarely get to the by line. It the reason all of our strikers weren't getting many chances to score last season. He does the job he were asking him to do very well , he has the ability to score in front of goal given the chance.
  3. And Jack posted a video only a few hours earlier, #stayhomesavelives really, really, poor timing.
  4. If that is the case, wouldn't we be able to do United for tapping up a player? Either way, if he has started these antics again and did go out after telling everyone to stay in, I personally believe it would be worse than what Delph did. Putting people's life on the line because he wanted to hang out with a ex-player who couldn't even jump a gate. If it was him, I'm happy he hit a car and not a person. If he didn't do it, then people need to get a life trying to build these stories.
  5. Three week break after the Chelsea game, another heavy defeat and the club may see it as the time to take a gamble on someone else.
  6. At is best Guilbert is a massive improvement on Elmo, he sadly hasn't shown it very often. I disagree on Taylor and Targett, Taylor couldn't defend in the Championship and has no pace what so ever. Nakamba, I agree on, and I believe Wesley would tear up the Championship. In the end, Purslow said he was looking to the future, buying players with sell on value. I believe we will sell most of the players for more than we bought them for (maybe not Welsey). Was the tactic right, I think we will have to wait a while to find out. In the mean time, Smith needs to do some work on the traini
  7. I would agree that some of the transfers weren't the best, and January was weak, but the players aren't as bad as most of their performances are showing.
  8. I have coached zonal marking at corners, and it works when doing correctly. i can tell you, what we were doing at the corner where Evans had a free header wasn't zonal, it's a mix-match of nothing at all. Watch the corner again, and watch Mings, he hasn't got a clue what he is doing!
  9. As we finished the playoff final: Heaton over Steer Guilbert over Elmo Targett over Taylor Nakamba over Hourihane Samatta over Championship Abraham - He has kicked on this season Are they superstars? No? Are they better and can perform in the Premier League? Yes. The team isn't gelling, seem lost and scared, but as an 11 we should be performing better even if we aren't winning many more games. Too many games where we have just "Turned Up"!
  10. There are several things in could be in my mind: 1. The players aren't performing at a level of intensity that Smith is asking 2. The players don't understand the tactics that Smith puts before them 3. Smith has made too easy for opposition managers to understand our tactics (get it to Grealish), so he/it is nullified and we don't have much of a plan B 4. Players are playing for Smith and he has lost them (not sure on this because we have been crap for most of the season) 5. The players that Smith/Suso bought aren't good enough - This is one I believe the least, we hav
  11. He will come out in the press conference and say we look for a response in training and we got it, the players are ready for the game and I expect a response. Sadly, he has been saying it for a couple of months now, and we aren't really getting a response. Even the games where we have taken points of late, we haven't looked very convincing. To get that sort of performance out of a team after they push City so close in the final is very worrying. He seems out of ideas, and he trying to regurgitate old tactics that haven't been very successful in this division. I'm expecting another defea
  12. He is performing as bad as Smith at present, sadly.
  13. I honestly don't see what he is doing week to week in training. You would expect to see some gains in some areas, but the same issues are continuing game after game. Some of the issues are below: 1. We cannot defend set pieces 2. Teams are tearing us apart in wide areas 3. We play too high a line, and teams are playing off the shoulder of the last defender and we are getting beaten fro pace 4. Our center midfielders are offering the defense very little protection 5. El Ghazi is the only wide player who is offering any pace and crosses into productive areas 6. Grea
  14. I'm not saying I'm expecting too much more than where we are, but I am expecting more from players who should be at least trying to get into position to receive a pass. We did this under Bruce and now Smith, a lack of work rate can never be acceptable.
  15. Bruce got battered at rightly so, when we would only turn up for half a game, and we are having the same performances for most of this season, and Smith get somewhat of a soft ride. I keep hearing from him we aren't aggressive enough, we don't close down quick enough, a much better second half after we spoke about a few things at H/T. Why not start talking about these during practices or heaven forbid before a game starts. Watching the team, I see one big thing that link us to performances when Bruce was manager. Players do not move well into space to support the player on the ball. So m
