Everyone was moaning at the Brighton game that Nugent and Stuani were starting over Downing and Rhodes and we all know how that ended.

 

Have some faith

AK has confirmed to the BBC that Valdes suffered a minor injury in training and they didn't want to risk him

Haha. I meant Nugent set up Stuani for that goal that made difference.

Hope AKs decisions are right today , but he does make me scratch my head at times if I'm honest . I certainly would have started Albert. Sunderland have a team that contains oshea really should have played on his lack of pace .

Here's my problem with the Rhodes narrative if we've decided to loan him out today is Sunday so why on earth would we not even place him on the bench?

 

At the minute it feels bizarre we await Aitors side, especially after his pre season form I mean you're left wondering what else could he have done?

For all of Karankas skills as a manager he seems to be a very poor man manager, Rhodes shouldn't be going anywhere

Aitor has been making decisions that some don't like for nearly three years now, he got us into our current position by doing it. Show a little faith.

Sky Sports interviewer failed to bring up Rhodes, even though that's a bigger omission than Valdes really. AK confirmed that they were expecting to play Valdes but he didn't want to risk him until he's fully fit. Doesn't know exactly when that'll be.

    • Randolph Nsue Ayala Gibson Friend De Roon Forshaw Traore Fischer Negredo Stuani/Bamford
    • To be awkward, because, well, I am awkward, I decided not to include the Premier League season.  Being honest about it, Negredo is easily the best forward from this decade in terms of quality.  Even players like Chambers, Fischer, Espinosa, would probably walk into many of the teams we fielded over the decade.  Given that many of those players did bugger all really, I don't want to pick them so it's Championship players only.                Randolph Fabio  Ayala Gibson Friend          Clayton Leadbitter                  Robson Adomah                Ramirez                 Bamford   It was tougher than I thought really.  GK was easy enough for me as it was really between Randolph and Given and Randolph has been pretty much our best, most consistent player since he signed for us.  Right back was a toughy.  I don't think any of them were especially good for any length of time.  I almost snuck Rhys Williams in there to get him into the side but he wasn't that good as a right back so I didn't.  Hoyte, McMahon, Varga, Fredericks, Kalas, Nsue, Christie, Fabio, Shotton, Howson.  In the end I cheated slightly and selected Fabio as I think he was probably the better player out of that lot.  Nsue probably should have been chosen though as he played more games.  Central defenders speak for themselves.  Maybe could have looked at Williams here because when he was fit, healthy and on top of his game, he was a good player or Wheater before he left but they are not in the same class as that partnership was for us.  Friend is obvious at left back, great value signing and played for a lot of the decade. In midfield, I was a big fan of Robson and would have liked to see him playing in better sides.  I think he'd have done ok for Karanka for example.  But you also have to respect the job that Leadbitter and Clayton did as well so I ended up selecting all three.  I didn't think that the likes of Arca, Butterfield, Whitehead, Bailey, McEachran or the more recent lot had done enough to get into the side. The attacking players were a bit tricky as well.  Adomah I would say is the easiest choice as he did well for us over 3 seasons.  Bamford is the best striker I've seen playing for us in the Championship so would have to select him ahead of Lita, McDonald, Emnes, Juke, Nugent, Assombalonga etc.  I didn't like selecting Ramirez as he only had a 6 month spell with us in the Championship and I think he's a *** but he did have a big impact in that time and he was a good player.  I suppose Tomlin, Traore, and one or two others might have cause to grumble about not being selected but I feel Ramirez had a bigger impact than them. I reckon that team gets promoted fairly comfortably.
