    Are we dependant on the player or the position? It's a key question, because we tried playing Hourihane/McGinn who are both unsuited to the more attacking position Grealish plays. They weren't as effective, perhaps because it's not their natural position. The only player who has attributes in that area, Lansbury, was also injured. Don't get me wrong, I'm not dismissing Grealish's talents by any stretch of the imagination. We are a different team without him, but if we had a natural backup for Grealish, a Sawyers perhaps, I'm confident we would have had a better run of results during Grealish's absence. Ergo, Smith isn't reliant one player, he's reliant on players playing in natural positions.
  2. Villalad21 is still wondering if we'll win another game this season. Bloody Dean 'midtable' Smith.
  3. I'd be very surprised if it weren't Adidas. That being said, who knows what the deal with Luke is and how we do out of that. The Luke deal always felt like a fluffy nice thing for the local community, whereas we now have serious commercial people in the right places who will look for maximum buck. I don't think we'll try and use Adidas to pump cash in, but equally it makes sense to use them.
  4. I said a couple of weeks ago that if we make it into the play offs, we'll win them. I firmly believe that, because the run it's going to take to get in and stay in the play offs will be something else. That will carry through. If we get there, we'll win them.

    Heard the same thing earlier from one of the only sources I would call 'very reliable'. Apparently there's a rift in the dressing room with some of the senior players turning on Smith because of the training levels and intensity. No idea who though. Edit to add, when haven't we heard of a rift in the dressing room? Always seems to be there. Bruce didn't have one but he did build a lot of the squad.

    Made me laugh earlier when Sky said they were now looking for a manager who can get them promoted rather than keep them up. Shame they sacked the best man for that job. Slightly off topic.
  8. Ah, the bottom half of the table. Hello darkness, my old friend..

    Tom Carroll

    Grealish and Carroll coming back (in McGinn's absence) would allow Smith to push Hourihane back to DM. Remember how good he was at recycling the ball when he played there? He fell to crap when he had to play in a more advanced position. I'd like to see Carroll start to see what he can do. I know his passing is meant to be superb, but it'll be good to see how hungry he is to win the ball, press the opposition and pick up those 2nd balls. As rodders says, can he be any worse..?

    Impossible. Jones has never finished higher than League Two.
