    Summer Transfer Window 2018

    It's a slow market so far but selling off some players by now would have been nice. It's a long list. Mirallas, Schneiderlin, Williams, Bolasie, Sandro, Galloway, Browning, Stek, Garbutt, Tarashaj at the very least. Would argue for McCarthy, Martina, Funes Mori, Niasse, Pennington as well.

    Have never agreed with a post more than this one. Absolutely spot on. Realistic and optimistic.

    Great work Bailey. The average position map is absolutely fascinating, thank you for posting. We can argue about Gana and Schneiderlin all day but whichever player you prefer, no one can argue they should be on the field at the same time. If we play anything but a back 4 and one holding mid for the last 11 games Sam is a bigger arse than words can describe. Stop changing shit, put your best 11 out there and may the best team win.

    I hope that's not true. Competing is a choice. It's a decision made by everyone at the club. If we've accepted this what's stopping us from accepting we can't compete with any other team in the league, or world for that matter. Cowards.

    Like that alot. I'd rather see DCL than Vlasic but would be thrilled if Sam picks a team close to your selection.

    Statistical analysis of this mess

    Glad some like it. Palfy: Schneiderlin has played without Gana three times. 0-0 tie to WBA where we also started three CBs. He also started twice with a back four. We lost 2-0 to Utd and tied WBA 1-1.
  9. Apologies in advance to those who hate numbers... This is a brief report showcasing stats under various formations concerning the much-maligned Keane, Schneiderlin and Gana.

But it's a decent representation given the sample size. I'll update this periodically with only 12 games left. A few of our general observations are confirmed: Any Back 3 that includes Keane, Gana and Schneiderlin turn off the tele or leave the stadium immediately. Keane is a disaster. Interesting it seems a back 4 with Gana and another supporting mid (Davies/Rooney) appears to work...better.

    Whatever credit he gets for keeping Sunderland and palace up is completely undone by the state of the club when he leaves. Both total shambles. Hodgson trying to save palace, Sunderland couldn’t find a solution. Instilling a belief that 40 pts is good enough is despicable. Get out now before our next manager can’t fix this mess. It would take Jesus reincarnated at this point.

    Sam is incapable of ‘going for it’. It’s not his nature and that rubs off on the players. I would love us to start an attacking side but they won’t attack. It would be foolish. Coleman can’t play two games so quickly and Davies put in a real shift he needs a breather. I would love for them to play but it wouldn’t be smart. pickford kenny Holgate Keane cuco gana rooney Beni walcott tosun dcl

    Get him out now. Playing Seamus for the full 90 and his comments on Lookman are simply gross negligence. Remarkable he has put those two in these situations.

    Yes. He gives maximum effort and cares about the result. In the last 10 minutes you need commitment to get a result not a prissy schmuck.
