I don't know if anyone else was close by or saw that but I was coming down the stairs in the North for the build up to that second goal. Payero sets up Coburn and we should be saying first and foremos

Going to paper over the cracks by winning our next 2 home games! UTB.....

He may even start Payero and Silki at this rate.... Thank god for these compromises.

 

I would snap your hands off with two wins on the bounce mate. Seems many a year ago since we managed that.

Why does Craig Johns persist on pushing the 3-5-2.. he also claims there’s a ‘clamour’ to see Ikpeazu and Sporar as a front 2, the only clamour I’ve seen is for Neil’s head which Johns’ also fails to acknowledge.

I've absolutely seen people calling for them to be played together.

Cos we don't have a right back available would be at least one reason.

There has been a clamour on here from Foxtrot Oscar Warnock.  I think he suggested just that front two the other day when we were chatting about the potential Peterborough team on the Warnock thread.

Who are the seven injured first team players NW is referring? 
Is this an expected amount of injuries teams expect? 
What the best source for news of this nature?

7 isn't great, but it's also not a freak situation - lots of teams will have far worse at various parts of the season (ourselves included).

Going by the 1st team squad on the official site we have 27 first team players (a few of them are youngsters granted, but theyve been seen as close enough to the first team to be included). That means we should have 20 players considered first team ready available if the 7 is an accurate number. Injuries are no excuse whatsoever, especially considering what reading did to us with no defenders available.

Shorter games is the solution 🤣

Uhhh, another excuse for Warnock. Wonder when he'll bring that into play.

The EG is just frustrating and a waste of time trying to read, what with the amount of banners and pop ups I can seem to prevent. Add stories peppered with could, should and possibly it’s not worth bothering I could just write my own. 
So the only real source is our official site?

I can't work it out because even including Fry & Hall I can only think of 5 that we knew were injured going into the IB,

Fry, Hall, Payero, Hernandez & Dijksteel.

The Gazette say we definitely have 7 out and it doesn't include Fry & Hall, suggesting there are injuries we haven't been made aware of yet.

The Gazette (the clubs mouthpiece) have reported that we will have 15 senior players this weekend, 3 of whom are goalkeepers. So they're definitely playing it up. They clearly are not including the young players on the fringe of the squad like you are.

    • I think United have been trying to use Henderson when they can since Sheffield United last loaned him, don't think there was a plan for him to be loaned out.
    • Ah i see. I thought he was bought in as it was anticipated Henderson might be loaned out. They still got Lee Grant i think who 4th choice there. 
    • Hartlepool, Harrogate, Newcastle or Leeds please. (Away)

    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
