Transfer Rumours, Summer 2014 "Didn't we do well!"

Recommended Posts

Colin Murray on Talksport talking best signings of the transfer deadline day. Colin's 2nd best signing....step forward Jelle Vossen. He seems to think the dealings we have done will push us into the play-offs. First piece of recognition I've heard all summer. #makingwaves

 

 

We have a squad good enough for a top 2 spots never mind just pushing in to the play offs

 

I don't disagree. Think its maybe a case of a pundit not wanting to say "oh yeah, I think they will get promoted" whilst, even at a really early satge of the season, the team he picks is lying in 16th. If we get promoted automatically he can say he was pleasantly surprised!!.

 

I really think this is our year. Would love to win the league (and have actually put some whole English pound sterlings on it!!) but thinkwe will finish 2nd, which lets face it, we would all take.....followed by the permanent signing of the V-man, who will have scored 22 goals for us by then !!! :):D

I think it's difficult to gauge.There's no way that Burnley looked like a top 6 never mind top 2 squad last year.

It doesn't matter what the squad looks like on paper, it's how the perform on the pitch, week in week out.

Can you listen back to talk sport online ? Or anything wouldn't mind hearing this .

 

Not sure Robbie. Think they used to do a podcast so you could listen to their 'best bits'. However, I may have just completely made that up thinking about radio 2!!!!

 

Edit - Scratch that, yes you can listen back. If you go to their website, click on menu at the top and then click radio, it gives you the option to 'listen again'

 

You need to click on the time slot 10.30 - 11.00 and its about 7 minutes in

Only if we receive the appropriate documentation faxed across before 8.30pm tonight. However, it must be noted that the OneBoro fax machine used to belong to Keith Lamb a very long time ago and is known for being unreliable at the best of times. Good Luck! :D

I can confirm the midfielder we were after yesterday was Cedrick Mabwati.. I got told we didn't have time to do it but we may look into it when the loan market re-opens,

A very good point and one that people need to remember.

    • What a great result and I loved the lineup! Amazing how we didn’t crumble and let in loads of goals with Roberts in the team. Hopefully he gets more involvement going forward.    nice to see Spence and Johnson doing well and getting some credit too as that hasn’t happened much so far this season. Bringing them on when we are ahead may be a useful tactic given they will be more likely to have space to run into which suits them.    I know Watmore was a bit rusty as we’d expect but I think if he stays fit he could be a real bonus for us this season. 
    • Interesting question really, to which there is no easy answer. I guess it’s probably one of the essential questions of football strategy. Perhaps one of the reasons behind our excellent defensive record (so far) is that we do press, thus containing the opposition in their own half. Although playing the ball around in midfield might open up more options, it does give the other team more time to organise their defence. There is a lot to be said for counter-attacking football – basically the element of surprise – but it is risky because you are playing too much in your own half and over-relying on your defenders. I’m not a great fan of that, however good they are. To be honest, I’m quite happy with the way things are at present. Effectively we scored twice tonight (I don’t count own goals) and we were pretty clinical, which is a welcome change.  
    • Second the counter attacking style, fortunes have changed once I tried to use a high press as opposed to dominating the game with possession on Football Manager 21 haha!
    • I'd agree, with the squad available to us I don't think a full team high press quite works for us. I think sitting deeper, not pressing  as high up and letting the opposition push forwards to open up space behind their defence suits us best, with team in it's current form. Combine this with situational high presses like the first part I mentioned and as you say an emphasis on making the most from set pieces too could well be a real good tactic for us. I do think we have these basics in place already, but as you say a bit more adventure in certain areas could make all these little parts a really effective whole.
    • I'm not a massive fan of the second way and it is the way we've set up more often than not this season. But even with that general tactic I feel like there's better ways of exploiting it and we actually managed it in parts tonight - to me the key is set pieces. It we get the ball up early, do our high press then give the ball asap to Roberts, spence and tav in particular then they will draw fouls and corners. We just need to then be better at capitalising on these opportunities when we get them. It's not pretty but I do think with a couple of tweeks, the major one being more adventurous wing play, we can score a lot more goals in this system than we are.
