How does downing keep getting picked? Pretty mush everytime he gets the ball he plays it back into the cm area, he doesn't have the pace to beat his man anymore.

 

According to a few on here, he's one of our best players mate  :heart: :liar:

Howson injured?

 

No. He’s not negative enough for Pulis.

 

Aye so negative taking a centre mid off for a striker  :sleepy:

 

No. It’s negative taking our most forward thinking midfielder off and leaving two more defensive on.

 

I mean, the proof of the change so far is that it has been beneficial to us going forward. Not that Britt has contributed anything with the ball but his mere presence in the opposition half of the pitch has made a difference.

 

I prefer Howson to Leadbitter and I see no reason he couldn't play alongside Besic in midfield. But the change wasn't negative in itself. What you're really saying is he's taken the wrong midfielder off and that's not inherently negative.

I saw him clatter Afobe(?) to stop him breaking through on goal. Pretty crucial interception in my book. we're splitting hairs but regardless Clayton can have no complaints over missing out.

 

Clayton was asked to play a role that doesn't suit him and was poor.  Leadbitter was asked to play his usual role and was poor.  I think Clayton can have at least one complaint over missing out.

 

Think it was Cavaliero Humpty.. can we both just agree that they're both garbage at the moment? I'd have a 2 man midfield with Besic and Howson.

I think that's what worries me the most!

 

When he was on form earlier in the season I would have agreed, possibly knowing he isn't going to be dropped is affecting his performances?

We could try a 0 man midfield and just pick a load of defenders and attackers  :upside_down:

One thing I will say is that this pitch is Sunday League quality, one side of it is all torn up and there's bobbles all over the place.

He might have just run out of steam?  He did have a decent spell earlier in the season but that seems a long time ago now.  I'd still be tempted to play him through the middle if anywhere at all and get someone with a bit more aggressive attacking intent out wide in his place.

They've won 2 home games this season so I assume that other teams have coped with it.  We just need to get our act together, we have much better players and they need to show it.  Stop ***ing about and get the three points.

Oh yeah I wasn't trying to use it as an excuse, merely commenting that it's ***ing terrible.

Was complaining he'd been kicked in the head and that was why he was out of the area. Right in front of our fans. Absolutely pathetic. Laughing my head off.

    • I honestly wouldn't mind trying NML up front, makes very little difference to me. It really can't be worse than having Britt or Akpom up front right now, individually there's not a lot going on without someone actually winning the ball in the air, Akpom and Britt have shown they can't do it. Christ, we'd be better off putting Grant Hall up front in this system than any of those 3.
    • A fter reading through the replies on this thread im still unable to add any half decent suggestions to the questions raisedin the OP. T he main conmclusion going thru my mindis that its thrown up another importantly needed addition in the summer. no-one in the current squad stands out as a serios contender and my personal take on Britt being given it was to try to give him more reason to involve himself in games but it hsnt happened. 
    • Watmore up front for me with Johnson and Kebano out wide. No doubt we will see Britt huffing and puffing until he is taken off for Akpom to replicate the exact same neutered performance. What I would give to see a mean, hungry, angry Striker with a point to prove.  Oh well, keep smiling.
