Husband and Reach and Wildschut

Recommended Posts

who on the left offers more and have the same link with Friend? As we dont want Downing on the left we have Adomah and De Pena if we dont play Reach. To be honest I rate Reach above both of them on the left. But thats maybe why I am not a manager, my football eye might be off :)

My best mate is a PNE season ticket holder and gets to most away games too so he's been regularly chatting about Reach.

 

To start with, what he said was all too familiar with Reach getting into good positions and then turning back rather than crossing or using his pace. More recently it seems he's been a bit more direct, taking on his full back and getting the ball in the box.

 

I'd like to see him given another chance on the left as (Downing aside) I think he offers more than anyone else we have in that position.

Particularly away from home, we often play a 3-5-2 formation, in which Reach plays left wing-back. He's done a very good job there, but it's a tough position to play and it does often nullify his attacking threat somewhat, which results in turning back and passing it back etc.

 

However, when pushed further forward, on the left of a front 3 in a 4-3-3, he's been a real threat going forward. He was good there against Reading a couple of weeks ago and in that position yesterday against Hull he was absolutely fantastic.

From what I've seen so far I'd rather have Reach in the side than de Pena and I'd much rather have Downing in the middle than Fabbrini so for me that leaves Reach competing with Adomah for the left hand attacking role. However, it's probably easier for the club to send Reach out on loan than de Pena so I'm not sure if things will work out that way for the rest of the season.

Agree with that 100%, Reach is underrated by a lot of Boro fans. Ideally De Pena would go out on loan.

Can de pena go out on loan? Hasn't he already played for 2 clubs this season?

Reach being allowed to stay with us for the season, according to Alan Nixon.

 

Yep, I think you might sign him permanently in the summer.. It seems a good fit IMO.

Reach and de Pena are different kinds of wide players. We're moving towards our wide players being far more comfortable in central areas so have to be far better technically. Reach struggled when he was in them central areas and generally kept wide in spaces, playing simple passes recycling possession with very little risk taking. de Pena is still adjusting but seems to be a similar sort wide player as Lallana(obviously not the same quality), technically good but not particularly fast. I'd much rather Reach stay at Preston on loan and play than sit on our bench.

 

Our LW seems to have been a patch-up job for the majority of the season so if de Pena starts performing then the position is there for him to make his own.

Well we can now add Yanik Wildschut to the debate, what are we going to do with him?

 

Personally would be good to see at least 2 out of the 3 of them playing against Burnley

Well Wildschut played in first round for Wigan, so he won't be appearing. Thought at time that letting him play meant that AK didn't think in Nov that he wanted Wildschut back at all, as FA Cup would have been obvious opportunity to give him some game time.

Best thing would be a loan to another Championship side to see if he can get a regular place and command a transfer fee - I can't see him being in AK long term plans.

For all the headline grabbing goals hes got. Hes still sat on the bench a lot in div1. So would a championship team want him

Don't you think there would be a few that would take a gamble - especially if Boro were picking up tab for some of his wages? Someone like Rotherham for example, even if they thought he might just be an impact sub.  It would be a no lose for them. If he was going to stay in div 1, then probably better for him to stay at Wigan, but there has been no talk of that happening.

    • You know I stopped saying things like that when I left Marton Road infants school back in the early 60s.  😄😄
    • I agree with you. I think Hugill did go to ground a lot but probably because when he played, the closest person near him when ball was played to him were the fans in the stands. Probs thought best i can do is win a free kick. QPR and Preston showed when you use him properly, i.e in a front 2 he is actually very decent at this level. A lot better than he showed here imo.
    • Has anyone been watching these? They have been quite decent listens. They have had one with Mowbray and another with McClaren, Beswick and Harrison as well so far.  
    • I think Hugill was all too often on the ground and I couldn't stand that in a big physical lad, more-so than the regular diving player... but I also think he'd have scored more goals under Woodgate than he did Pulis. Though you could probably apply that to a lot of strikers.
    • I disagree. Replacing Britt is not the hard part imo. Getting a good fee for him under the current circumstances with 1yr left on his deal is the hard part. Ultimately we need to find a striker who gets between 12-15 goals a season as that is what we would lose with Britt.    One of the ITK members on here said we are looking at Lyle Taylor who out of contract at end of season. He has 11 goals to his name and has missed a decent chunk of season. Other players include Nakhi Wells who cost Bristol £5m (same fee as we are maybe looking at for Britt) and has 15 goals. Hugill on loan at QPR has 11 goals Woodrow at Barnsely has 14 goals Out of contract Fletcher at Sheff Wed has 13 goals. I am not suggesting we should look at any of them but they have all offered better value for money than britt so getting more bang for your buck than we have from Britt is not hard. Might be for us due to our past incompetent scouting department but some other clubs managed it. Maybe we can this summer...
