  1. The Stoke match made me change my view on whether Wilder wanted Payero or not. He was stripped, warming up, 2-0 and cruising, great opportunity for him to get some minutes. I even thought he got called back from warming up to come on…then he got told to sit down and Connolly was brought on. To boos. All Wilders talk of Payero having a chance, maybe being end of season hero thrown out of the window. Feel so sorry for the guy.
  2. Yesterday we were told by an insider that Payero was told he could leave, today it’s that he can go on loan. I don’t think anyone really knows to be honest. Maybe Forest can take him and we can sell him for £20m the following season? 😉
  3. Wilders comments to the press over the weekend have got me thinking. He says there will be surprises and some players have been in the side because there’s no other options. So the likes of Hall, TO, even Payero aren’t covered in that. They’re nowhere near the team anyway. He then name checks Fry, Paddy, Jones, Tav and McGree as players he wants to stay and get more from. So that only leaves Lumley, Djiksteel, Bola, Crooks and Watmore as regular starters who he might be referring to. Lumley won’t be a shock, Bola hasn’t played that many games (as an aside, I think we were much better with T
  4. I think we need one new midfielder on top of that. We’re in desperate need of someone to drive us forward at pace.
  5. So what’s everyone’s thoughts on Payero? I said a couple of weeks ago I expected him to be moved on but was told that wouldn’t happen! That the club have invested too much time and money. Thoughts now? On the one hand I feel sorry for him, he’s managed a couple of break throughs with Warnock and Wilder, then got injured and struggled to get back in. On the other, he’s not grabbed his chances with both hands and made himself a question for Wilder. Look at how McGree has even pushed out best MF out wide so Wilder can play them both. Or Crooks coming straight back after every suspension despite a
  6. It certainly looks like it’s the Wilder model rather than the DOF model, but Scott hired Wilder. 3-5-2 is a very popular modern formation, who’s to say it’s not how Scott wants to play and his future long term vision. He certainly seems focussed on youth. Let’s see the players he brings in next season before we decide that it’s all Wilder and nothing to do with Scott. Maybe something for the supporters group to ask in their Q&A session.
  7. For years we’ve been talking on this message board about building for the long term, getting in a DoF, following the Brentford model. Then after a season of Scott and half of Wilder people are calling for a change! It’s ridiculous. Brentford took years to get promoted yet many on here were begging for us to model ourselves on them. Wilder has some arrogance about him and is totally backing himself to get this club back into the PL. I think he has faults and has made mistakes, but I’m 100% happier with him in charge building for the long term than I was the last 3 managers. I’m excited for n
  8. I think McNair has been poor the past few weeks (maybe just knackered) and won’t displace Dijksteel as the right sided CB. I don’t think he’s good enough in midfield either so really wouldn’t be surprised to see him go.
  9. My main concern with Wilder is having 3 strikers on the bench who play the same way as the 2 on the pitch every match, giving a max of one midfielder on the bench to bring on to change things up. Which he never does. I personally think the midfield needs a shake up.
  10. Feel bad for Luton. They’re pretty much decimated injury wise.
  11. I think Paddy has been struggling over the past couple of weeks. Peltier did well today, no problem if he needs to keep his place.
  12. The new kit was available to buy when we reached the playoff final. Loads of fans were wearing the new shirt at Wembley but of course the players wore that seasons kit
  13. Scott wasn’t here in the summer and it was clear that Warnock wanted a particular type of player that we knew wouldn’t fit in with our long term plans. January was a worry though because the loans were clearly Wilders choices and just haven’t worked out. Need to stick with the plan, Scott leading the recruitment, young players with possible resale value. That means that some won’t work out and things might take a bit more time
  14. It kind of has that end of season feel where half the players know they won’t be here next year! I think Wilder mishandled Sporar when the Jan signings arrived and his form dropped off a cliff, feel the same about a few others.
  15. I really hope you’re right. The whole place just feels really flat right now which is ridiculous when we’re two games from possible playoffs. Compare to how the whole place was bouncing and united after the Spurs match, players, manager and fans all in sync and it really felt we were going places. Since the Chelsea match (and actually during that match) the belief seems to have gone, the crowd have gone quiet and it’s all just a bit meh. Compare that to Forest, great performance in their loss to Liverpool but have kept all momentum and look like they could go up automatically now.
