Very good point. Jones is wafer thin but that didn't seem to stop him mugging that defender before his assist on Wednesday night 

Physical attributes only make up a portion of the overall player, its important but gone are the days where every team has to be based on a bunch of brutes.  I know NW like his players to be physical and tall etc. but it shouldn't be what makes a player in my opinion.  Jones has been unreal so far.

I don't think any of the wingers we have signed/are signing are better than either kebano or bolasie (happy to be proved wrong by the dutch lad). We've basically replaced those two very good championship wingers with unknown quantities so I'm not sure why people are getting carried away (again).

It's because they don't have a permanent downer on the team solely because they don't like the manager.

We only had those two for 5 months to be fair, they weren't even ours to replace. They were a short term fix that due to injuries didn't even really have their desired effect

And yet this place will go hysterical every time we lose like it did during the week whereas I was calm and measured in my response. There's nothing wrong with managing your expectations.

The point is that we had better options then and we still didn't do anything with them, so talk of our wide positions being sorted are premature imo, that's all I'm saying. But yet again I get jumped on immedaitely for being negative when I'm just being realistic.

Ah but that's only because you forgot the match was being played and went out for a Guiness or two😁

If people are going to argue the correct way to react to a victory/defeat could you please use the phrases “Rose tinted, delusional or bed wetters “ like the footballing gods intended 😊

If you consistently expect the worst at least you are never disappointed.

Being excited about new players with potential is all part of the fun.

I don't constantly expect the worst though, I think we'll be fairly comfortable 8th-12th this season again and we'll see some good performances and some bad ones! Just don't expect us to make it to the play offs with the squad and manager we currently have, that's hardly expecting the worst.

I've said numerous times that I'm looking forward to seeing how our players develop this season and how we shake things up next summer and that I'm feeling a lot more positive about boros future than any time since monk, yet the second I say something I deem realism I get jumped on every time. It's just a tad ridiculous at this point.

Where did I say you were negative? I think you make a good point, I was just weighing up their effect

Warnock highlighted the massive area of concern last season which was if we had Tavernier injured.. there was NOBODY in the squad to replace him. That issue is being rectified across the squad now, two good players for every position.

In midfield Tavernier and Payero play very similar roles.. most folks can see that he may not necessarily be dropped straight all singing all dancing kung fu fighting machine. When he is fully up to speed he will one hell of an option to have in the side if his argentinian stats can carry over to the english game.  

A fit Tavernier and an upto speed Payero will cause teams countless problems. add into the mix Crookes who is frightening at this level and Morsy and we're going for gold imo.

I agree with all of that, but if Tav and  Payero are our most creative players then surely we must find a way to integrate both of them in the side
