I must have missed something, but where did this notion of Gibbo playing at left back come from?

 

I believe Humpty was the one who first mentioned it around about when he first disputed the Southampton contact. I can't remember if that was a hunch from him or something genuinely coming from the camp.

The ironic thing is with some of the overwhelming negativity going on here you'd probably fit in well in Tony Pulis' teams that you seem to fear/hate so much :D

If we are not in a top 2 position after 10 matches, We could all go totally Curtis Lemming and jump of the roof of The Riverside

Vokes is just Gestede with a few more Premier League goals.

 

That would kind of indicate that he is better than Gestede. But kind of agree that we don't need two of those kinds if that's what you are emplying.

 

If it was 30 or 40 goals more I might well agree but it's like 6 or 7 I think.  If Vokes had spent his time in the Premier League with Villa and us I'm not sure there would be any difference at all quite honestly  :)

I don't know Vokes well enough to really comment, although I can understand that he's not the most exciting name we've ever been linked with, and £15m is still a fair old whack even in the current mad market.

But if he's a Burnley player, won't he have spent the past few years playing in a front two? Could be a hint as to what Pulis has planned, formation-wise.

Pulis gave an interview where he said he'd like to try Gibson at left back with Friend at left midfield to try and create a better balanced side.

Please tell me that's a sick joke  :(

Does anyone know anything about that Sam McQueen from SOuthampton that we are supposedly interested in? Says he is a left back but it looks like he has played most of his game for Southampton at left midfield. Sounds a bit like a Bryan type of left sided player. Young and still good enough to have featured 29 times for Southampton and is still only 23.

I haven't seen a lot of him, but my mate who supports Southampton said that there was no drop-off at all when McQueen came in for Bertrand, which is high praise indeed. In fact, I think a lot of the reason he was pushed up to LM was to accommodate both when Bertrand came back into the team.

An interesting situation though at Southampton. Bertrand could be forgiven for being a little disappointed to miss out on the England squad so might want to make the move to a bigger club and Matt Targett also would seem to be on the way out after doing well for Fulham on loan (and coming out in mid-April and saying that the Saints hadn't even been in touch with him since he moved there). If indeed McQueen is as good as Tom says, it could be the case he gets shoved into the spotlight for them in the very near future rather than move on.

That would make sense then, Gibbo has played left back before and there is no reason he couldnt do it again, it’s a much more glamorous position than being stuck at centre half, especially with a marauding George Friend up ahead of him.

 

 

Exciting times.

Yeah that was the interview where he said he wants at least 8 centre backs in the team at the start of the season.

 

I say don't criticise until you've given his methods a chance.

You've all spent the past few days getting angry at a hypothetical scenario which may not even happen... We've been linked with two left backs recently yet all I've seen on this forum is "Pulis is gonna play *random CB* as a fullback". Interesting stuff.

    • It could be a number of things to be honest, have you tried connecting it to an external monitor or a TV first and then booting it up? If it works fine on an external source then you have a screen issue.  If it doesn't work on an external source then it's probably a corrupt system file causing it. The easiest way to fix that would be to wipe the hard drive and reinstall your operating system (you should have a CD-ROM or USB stick that came with the laptop in order to do this. Connect your laptop to a TV or monitor first though so you can see what you're doing!) If that still doesn't work and you can't get a display on the laptop AND an external source, the graphics card could be shot, or the motherboard could be faulty, there could be a CMOS issue, etc etc.
    • Hi all, just after a bit of help. I'm trying to reset my laptop. It is a fair few years old now and has been through the ringer, a fair few times it has hit the wall and I have managed to fix it by myself, but this one seems beyond my capabilities.  This issue has been going on a while but I'm only just getting round to it since I finally have some free time. When I turn my laptop on, It makes the noise as if it is loading, but I just get a black screen (it is still backlit but nothing ever appears). I have tried the Novo one button reset, which actually brought up a screen for the first time in lord knows how long.  However, no matter what option I choose, it then goes back to a black screen.    Anybody with any ideas at all on how to fix it or what's wrong? I was using it as a media server for Plex before it left so there were a lot of files on there that may have corrupted if that helps diagnose it at all?   Thanks in advance
    • Gazette seem to be suggesting club and JW want him to stay given his influence around the place. I should have added the above post was not my own prediction of who will stay or go but more what Gazette are seemingly suggesting. 
    • The police struggle with their duties during a short spike in crime on a regular day. That, along with the government's long desire to portray the changing face of crime and how we increasingly need to change to fight more digital crime, is going to be a factor in how many coppers we have on the streets to enforce these things. The government has now been forced to accept that enforcement may be needed to keep people indoors, which goes drastically against their ideal distribution of officers. Going significantly against their ideal setup is becoming quite a theme during this pandemic. As I said earlier, this doesn't mean higher levels of lockdown are on the way, what it may mean is that higher levels of enforcement will be dispatched in order to enforce the current lockdown procedures.
    • Why would we want Friend to stay, He was a brilliant player, now he cannot play three games on the spin.
