This is wrong move, the work rate from the front will go now

 

Unless he's told Britt to work if he wants to play more football. If he doesn't play like Tony wants he won't play and I'm sure he knows that.

The last thing Fulham would have wanted after been tired from the movement of the front line is someone like Bamford coming on and working them hard as well. We have basically sent on a brick with legs that is a good finisher.

So a ball awkwardly bouncing up and hitting an arm is a handball (which I believe should make it a yellow as well because handball has to be deliberate) but almost chokeslamming someone through to the ground is a legitimate defensive tactic.

    • @Blanco that tbf if a good question.   Maybe back up is the wrong term. Maybe the correct term is one of them 3 along with someone who can be interchanged. I just dont feel them 3 as your main striker are gonna have you pushing you promotion.   But them plus another sharing the burden could work because as you said, there probably is not a target man who can get you the 15 goals plus alone you need. So might need to rely on two strikers who can both hit double figures. I know Diedhiou not everyones cuppa of tea but bar this season he got double figures in each of his season at Bristol. If he wants to be sensible with his wages of course If he and say collins came, both on a free, I would be confident both with the right service could get between 10-13 goals each. 
    • If you ignore everything in terms of the debt and selling the stadium to themselves etc. Thinking of infrastructure they've got a good training ground complex, which has planning permission for improvements/expansion. Plus their stadium is almost a like for like of ours. Both of which are also slightly newer than ours.  They have a good academy set-up which has and does still produce players of a good level. I think last season they gave more minutes to academy players than any other club in the Championship.  Then first team I suppose they are like every other championship club, got a few good players and a lot of ok players. Their wage bill is too high (looking at the 2018 accounts) for what they earn. They definitely have room for growth and improvement. But as you say there isn't really much difference between them and a lot of other championship clubs (ignoring all the other stuff). I'd say their academy is probably better than most and they've got a good infrastructure, with an underwhelming first team picture (in terms of performance and players).  But I suppose as an investor you'd be looking at the potential payout of reaching the PL, which may tempt you into taking a loss on them for a 3 year spell or so. But considering all the other stuff, I think your investors with that way of thinking are being put off, due to the initial potential outlay, which will massively impact your payouts.
    • What standard of target man are you expecting @TLF10 if you think that they would only be back up?
    • I know we need 2-3 strikers this summer but I'd like to see us looking at our first choice strikers right now and, in fact, I'm quite worried that we already are. Those names, Collins, Smith, Wyke, none of them sound to me like they'll make such a significant impact on this team that we will be battling at the very top end of the division. These are all strikers entering or are in their prime age and as far as I can tell, no other team with those kind of ambitions next season are looking at these guys and thinking they're ready for that. I could be wrong about them, if they sign I'll 100% give them the chance to prove me wrong as I would any player. But hesitant isn't a strong enough word to explain how I feel about giving them a 2-3 year deal here. I wouldn't expect them to hit the ground running or fire us to promotion and though it's still very early days in the window, I would not be at all shocked to see either of them being given the #9 shirt and be Warnock's main man going into next season.
    • Sorry! Back on topic. I think hob nobs are a gift from God himself.
