Watmores passes are all half a yard off. You can tell he hasn’t played for a while.

Watmore looks a bit rusty. Not a surprise though. He hasn't played in about a year i think. Hopefully he grows into the game

I wish Roberts would take a shot now and again 

Me too, but his runs have earned us a few free kicks and corners today. We've not capatised on them but that combined with his role in the goal shows he's been good value despite not having the best half.

Think during being fouled Fry just attempted the patented Phil Jones head-while-on-the-ground thing.

Yeah, he's still getting into some decent positions and got the assist for the goal but understandably rusty on the ball.

Jebus derby are poor. If we don’t win this it’ll only be through our own fault.

I reckon Britt will get another goal as he does like to score goals like buses. Then he can get that over 10+ in the season when in fact he only scored in like 7-9 ish games

I’d maybe try back to a 433, with Roberts out on the right and bring Tav central. 
Watmore looks rusty, but did well for the assist. Bola, Sav and Howson been great.

    • Do you ever actually have anything to contribute other than laughing at people or calling them names? 44 posts on this forum and the most substantial comment you've made is asking if we were after Marcus Maddison one transfer window. 90% of your comments are pretty much the same as this one. I think @TLF10 is being generous saying he respects you as a poster, to be honest.
    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
