What to do?

Recommended Posts

There certainly seems to be some fans complaining that Stendel wasn't backed enough to succeed. I can't see how him coming here would be much different for him personally.

Bloke I work with is from Barnsley and he has said that the current owners are basically doing a 'soft' asset strip of the club. Whenever somebody shows potential, they get sold for profitt, even selling to rivals. It was amazing they even got promoted.

The defence the other day supposedly had an average age of 20.....

We have better players than Barnsley, seeing that he picked Barnsley up off the floor and got them promoted suggests (to me) good man management to get the best out of the team.

Today has answered your question tbh, get Daniel Stendel in immediately 

You can't sack Woodgate after 11 league games that would just be ridiculous and contradict everything that has been said by the Club since the end of last season. Yes things aren't good at the minute but a reaction like that would be daft imo and make us even more embarrassing as a club! Media outlets would have a field day.....

Disregarding points earned, would people see greater progress if we drew our next 5 games, or if we won 2 lost 3?

Too simplistic.  2 spawny wins and 3 hammerings is a world away from 2 good wins plus 3 close games in which we show we have a game plan. 

5 games showing any real plan, with consistency as to the formation, team, gameplan, etc with a few points is all I ask right now. 

As it is, this is a repeat of Monk. Running from your chosen system when it does not work, then flailing around until you get sacked at Christmas.

What would everyone prefer in the next 10 games? 

1. Stick with your beliefs, attack teams, press high and try to score goals. Even if we lose 4-3 go down fighting. The risk with this is we could get a few hammerings.

Or 

2. Forget the entertainment, go back to the Pulis style until January. Make us hard to beat and try to grind out points.

1.
I wanted Pulis sacked for a reason. If I wanted option 2 then Pulis would be the best fit and should have stayed.

Stick to the principles. The league picture isn't going to be certain 21 games in. Gaps might start to develop in areas of the table, including at the bottom, but not insurmountable ones. The time for scraping points together doesn't seem like now, to me.

I would as mentioned in the OP switch the system to one that suits our players, but still try to play football and not go all pragmatic.

We need to score goals so a system with 2 strikers is preferable... Fletcher and Britt might work well together.. 

And maybe just very tiny maybe... If Gestede could stay fit for more than 10 minutes .. Britt and Gestede "could" have something maybe just 70 % of what Gestede and Rhodes had in Blackburn .. 

Is it me or is Britt's skills and Jordan's skills pretty much the same? A box poker ...

I still like the idea of using Browne, Wing or Tav as a #10  to support TWO strikers .. 

Any takers?

So in the January window how much money is they available to spend? Or are we going to have to sell before we can buy a half decent player. I mean even Emmanuel Ledesma would be our most creative player in this side

I agree 352 is the best way for us, but you made the same mistake as me and forgot about McNair in midfield haha.

    • Don't be impressed then, just be happy with a 7-0 win like I said. In the past 18 months England have made it to the World Cup semi finals and the Nations League finals.  That's better than a lot of good teams including - Spain, Belgium, Argentina, Germany, Italy and plenty of others.  We lost to Croatia after extra time in a game we probably should have won by half time and Holland after extra time in a game that we could have won but obviously didn't.  To get to the Nations League finals we had to beat both Spain and Croatia and to get to the World Cup semi finals we had to beat both Colombia and Sweden, who are both decent sides.  I think we're a better team now than we were in the World Cup as well.  We lost to Belgium in the group stage and then again the third place play off but we changed the team for both of those games, rightly or wrongly.  So whilst we did lose the games, we also didn't give either of them our best shot. Against the mighty Kosovo we won 5-3, my memory is fine.  Winning and scoring 5 goals sounds pretty good to me.  The mighty Kosovo have lost twice this year - to us and 2-1 against Czech Republic.  They've also beaten the Czech Republic and drawn with Denmark so they aren't a terrible side by any means. France have won a few trophies over the past few decades.  They've also been a better team than us over the last few decades as have Spain so that seems fair enough to me. Our much lauded attacking line up has done fine unless we don't count putting 3 past Spain and beating Croatia?  During the world cup we weren't playing like this so it's really only post the world cup that we've had the opportunity to see it in action and so far it's done pretty well.  When it gets tested against better teams next year we'll see how it goes then of course. We've put 3 past Spain, 5 past Czech Republic, 6 and 4 past Bulgaria, 5 and 7 past Montenegro and 5 past Kosovo in the last year or so.  I'm not sure it's fair to call them all minnows and if you look around there aren't many teams doing that with the same regularity.  Montenegro the other night weren't a pub side, we are the only team who have stuffed them over the past 3 or 4 years and that includes games against Denmark, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey and Serbia.  We're a much better side than them but they aren't hopeless and have been competitive against decent sides other than us. I don't see the relevance between a video game on the easiest setting and England.  We're not playing San Marino, Andorra etc, the teams we are playing are better than that, and as I pointed out above, we've done ok even in competitive games against good opposition.
    • Cardiff appoint ex Miillwall boss Neil Harris as their new manager. 
    • Ayala was identified by Mowbray and the loan signing went through at the time of his sacking, he definitely wasn't a Venus signing. Karanka was in charge when we signed him permanently but he had nothing to do with us identifying Ayala initially. 
    • Sorry @Erimus74. Did not see your post. I dont think any are out of contract in jan but following 6 are out of contract come the summer.  Shotton, Ayala, Friend, Howson Johnson, Rudy. Suggestion is Clayton could be 7th one also out of contract but we might have an option to extend his. That option lies with us and not Clayton apparently.
    • Totally agree @wilsoncgp. I am also at a loss to explain reason why but i am also not too bothered why other clubs are not going for him because given his stats for last few season and fact he has 6 months left on his contract means the financial risk attached with him could not be lower. He already has 9 goals and 6 assists from midfield this season meaning he almost averaging a goal/assist every game. And as @DanFromDownSouth said. He is exactly the type of player our team currently lacks imo.
