OH NO....

 

I just realised that I JINXED Kike with all my hero banter... and now he's gone to Eibar.

 

Gutting - sorry everyone.

I think Gibson is back in training but it depends on the seriousness of his injury and how long he has been training for.

 

It wouldn't be the first time he started on the bench because of an injury this season, I believe that's what happened when he was working his way back into the team at the start of the season.

Not a chance of this happening but I think with the players we have this would suit us.

 

 

-------------------Dimi--------------------------

------------Ayala-------Gibson-----------------

Nsue--------------------------------De Laet---

-----------------Clayton------------------------

-----Leadbitter-----------Downing------------

-----------------Ramirez-------------------------

--------Stuani------------Rhodes---------------

 

Subs.. Majias, Kalas, De Sart, Forshaw, Adomah, Sola, Nugent

 

 

I don't want this to sound arrogant or cocky..... Am I the only one who thinks we should comfortably beat most teams & easily get promoted with those players?. Other teams simply do not have that amount of class in their squads.

 

Its up to AK to get the best out of this amazing squad of players (for championship standards).... Mr Gibson has gave AK everything needed to get us promoted, Now its time for AK to repay Mr Gibson for being the best chairman in football.

 

UTB.

There's quite a few I've seen on here that want to play this formation with just Clayts in DM and a 4-4-2. I personally don't think there's much chance of it happening. Karanka's never really played a 4-4-2 so why would he change now? I also have been guilty of saying in moments of frustration ' Why doesn't he put 2 up top' etc but, unless we're chasing a game, I don't think we'd too well in a 4-4-2. Our base is not conceding goals, and scoring a couple to win games. It might not always be pretty, but results have shown it is usually effective.

In my eyes, stick with the current formation to give that good defensive platform, and with the extra creativity in Ramirez, and the clinical nature of Rhodes' finishing, we will be fine.

Happy with Naughty Boys team , although it will be in a 4-2-3-1 formation

 

Key now is that we have plenty of players to play through , not just Downing , so the front 3-1 will need to be interchageable and Leadbitter will need to move the ball forward more.

 

Might take a few games for the new players to click but still think we should have too much for Blackburn on saturday

 

2-0 with Stuani and Rhodes scoring

What if we struggle to score goals now, Should we persist with 4-2-3-1 after about 3/5 more games?... I have no complaints with AK trying our new players in that formation but if we are struggling to beat teams hopefully he will try a different formation because our squad should be doing better than making us bite our nails in most games.

Think we're due another Leadbitter Thunder ***. So will go for him as FGS and a 2-0 win

 

Usual line up with Gibbo back in defence and Nugent starting up top. Expect to see a couple of new signings around the 70min mark

If we struggle to score goals now then yes we don't have the "we don't have a natural goalscorer"excuse to fall back on.

    • People do get reported and we decide the report needs no further action, if that's what you mean, yes. Different people get offended by different things, that's just human nature. If people do see and get offended by anti English comments and they don't get immediately picked up by Mods, then report them. That's what the button is there for. We are not "claiming" anything. The prior anti English comments that I am aware of came during the context of the Euros. While not ideal, there will always be some home nation bantering when it comes to football and while yes in hindsight some of them may have crossed over the "banter" line (which is a hard line to police, by the way), they have been apologised for, whether you want to believe that or not. The report happened to be about you - I don't know what you want me to say about that. You know full well you can be antagonistic and sometimes you tip toe the line and while usually you're good at staying on the right side of it, sometimes you fail. Would someone else have got the same punishment you did for the comments you made that day? Maybe not, but it's all contextual. You had two prior warnings for very similar offences so a step up was deemed appropriate. Other mods can comment on this if they want, but this is the last comment you will get from me on the matter.
    • All big games really.  We're in the hunt so the pressure is on!  Great to see.
    • This is the kind of thinking we need at this football club. Seriously though, if you're going to do stuff like this then it should be lots of players of the past, not just Ugo, although I get the reason for him being mentioned specifically.  Most players aren't going to get statues at the ground like Mannion, and Hardwick, it'd be nice to have something for lots of players, and a space for players in the future as well.
    • Give over mate.  You know what I'm talking about, you've seen it as others have.  At least one of the bloody mods was doing it as well.  Is this how it's going to be now, mods acting dumb when things get called out? Can I ask a question, is it possible in your opinion, that some people will end up being reported more than others, but that the reports might not have any real merit to them?  Genuine question.
    • The results today were pretty decent again. If we beat Blackburn on Monday then we're only 4 points behind 2nd placed Bournemouth, who are on poor form and have looked awful for the past two months. QPR are in great form at the moment so seem to be in with a shot of 2nd spot.
