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.

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.

    • Kieran Maguire did a breakdown of each championship clubs 20/21 accounts when they were published earlier this year. Bournemouth’s average weekly wage was £27,500, ours was £12,500. They’ve managed to retain the vast majority of their squad since relegation with Danjuma being the only major outgoing. My argument with Mitrovic was only to say that just because a player is surplus to requirements doesn’t mean they are not good enough. I’m also shocked that you think Howson - our player of the season - should be easy to replace. Obviously you are entitled to your opinion, but I personally wouldn’t be shelling out for another midfielder when I feel there are much more important positions to fill. Of course a lot depends on the budget we are working with, but I think we need two strikers, a left wing back (maybe even two), a right wing back, a centre back, and a goalkeeper. I just can’t see us filling each of these positions and getting another midfielder in. I don’t even think in the grand scheme of things that our midfield was that much of an issue last season, it was an inability to score and leaking too many at the back that ultimately cost us.
    • I don't think they do have an embarrassment of riches, which I suppose is another point I'm making.  Bournemouth weren't that good this season, they rarely impressed me when I saw them, and didn't impress me much at all against us. Mitrovic has had a fantastic season at this level, but he still might not be good enough for Newcastle, I'm not really sure what argument you're making there?  He scored 3 goals for Fulham in the Premier League last season.  Either side of that he's scored 26 and 40 in the Championship.  All that proves is that he's more than good enough for this level, which is lower than where Newcastle aimed to be when they sold him. I am realistic about incomings, I'm also realistic about our current players.  Howson was the worst of the three midfielders last season, and needs to be replaced in the side.  It shouldn't cost much at all to bring in a better player than him, he's not even our best midfielder let alone one of the top midfielders in the Championship, so replacing him really shouldn't be difficult.  If the club can't replace a bloke that wasn't that good to begin with when we signed him then what chance have they got of improving the rest of the team adequately enough to win promotion?  A GK, a midfielder, two strikers, left sided player.  Those are our priorities, that's where we need to upgrade in my opinion.
    • Poor article that. 10 mill for Spence? Coulson a Teessider? Come on Craig Johns ffs 
    • https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/middlesbrough-loan-exit-round-up-24049100   This article mentions we are releasing Ste Walker this summer. His release is no surprise but dont think club have confirmed his release. Article again mentions figure of above £10m for Spence. Echo saying £20m. Hopefully somewhere in between.
    • Bournemouth didn't spend much last year, probably about the same as we did I think? For some reason they clearly rated other people ahead of the lad.  Nothing wrong with that of course, and it doesn't need to be a reflection of his ability.  My issue would be if he was our sole midfield signing, then we'd be putting a lot of faith in someone who was taken out of the Bournemouth side for whatever reason.  At some point we need to be bringing in players who will replace those we already have otherwise we're just not improving.
