  1. That's pretty much all I was getting at to be honest, I don't think Warnock has any intention for us to be a long ball side it more came from us not being able to play the game that was asked of us
  2. This isn't me saying we don't play long balls but people go on like it's our game plan to just throw it forwars and that all our attacks come from just pump it up to the strikers, hence the Akpom can he head the ball comments. Honestly at times I wish we were more direct Also look at the stats today, we had more possession and played less long balls than Bournemouth
  3. I just think it's a lazy position to take, the stats are clear. You might not think we are attractive and our midfield at times isn't in the game enough but that's not the same thing Warnock doesn't even have a record of playing long ball football, I've always found it strange that people on here go on about Zohore like he was a target man. He plays down the channels as he did for Cardiff and yes, they were decent from set pieces and played happily without possession but their tactics were all about nullifying teams and then breaking in behind
  4. I'd say it suggests we are not a passing side but the long ball stats don't lie, we just tend to not have possession as much as other sides
  5. Are we actually a long ball side though? 9th highest in the league according to who scored, less than Birmingham and Karanka ball
  6. There's hardly any point in a manager or assistant manager saying they need 5 in, knowing fine well they will get 2-3 at most. They gain nothing but annoyed fans and a squad who have been told they're not good enough
  7. It's a choice, you can't blame recruitment this summer when we haven't even been linked with a winger. This is a choice, clearly
  8. Is he a creative winger? He's got 2 goals and 2 assists in his entire career
  9. The biggest indication yet that you are a past or present member of the gazette fraternity
  10. He just didnt look comfortable for me and then Warnock felt he looked like he was trying too hard, in his defense Warnock didnt play him in his favoured position too much. I really hope he pushes back on again as he looked a much better prospect than Spence
  11. To be fair, it is that simple Its only complicated by people's attitudes, I am sure it used to be fun for some people
  12. God, we are such a depressing fanbase Cue lots of but its been *** for years and we are rubbish at recruitment, yeah yeah we all get it but this leaning into being negative about everything is grim
  13. Akpom doesnt have a poor injury record, scored recently against Ajax in the Champions League, 7 goals and 2 assists in 23 games and 6 goals and 4 assists in 20 the season before isnt exactly bad either. The greek league isnt a bad one either, Wolves struggled past Olympiacos recently in the Europa League and PAOK beat Benfica yesterday
  14. No, I mean the 8 games last season under Warnock when he looked completely out of sorts, Johnson was preferred and he remains unfancied by the manager. I like Coulson but the lad needs to work hard and get back on track, likewise Wing
  15. I think even that is harsh, I think we will see more about what he offers over the next 6 months or so and especially as he gets fitter but he certainly seems less of a big plank like Aden Flint
  16. He's clearly been made aware of the secret embargo we have against signing any player that may be remotely exciting, reportedly as punishment for bringing Antonio Barragan and his throw ins back to the prem
  17. It's pretty clear the young players we are relying on to fill in for a failed recruitment are either not good enough or not ready
