  1. Add this to him being in the top five in Europe for chances created. It shows that helping in attack isn’t just about that final ball for an assist. Interestingly, watch the video of Siggs goals, he’s pretty much involved in all of his goals.
  2. That’s class Palfy. How we could do with characters like that now.
  3. Can’t tell if your telling the truth or taking the piss haha! If true. He was one of the players who served a purpose, you could hit a ball long to him, knowing that he would win it 9/10. This allowed otherforwards to work of him. Having that presence in the box at a corner allows players like Richarlison to poach.
  4. Alonso hit a volley wide on Sunday. The best bit of him missing was Gana sliding in front of him, expecting it to he on target. That’s what we need more of from all our players.
  5. You never know your character until faced with adversity. A lot of our players are finding out quickly. The manager is also finding out which characters are up for the fight and which aren’t. Moyes had fighters in his team, players who were prepared to put their bodies on the line. We need a few of those characters.
  6. Much improved performance. Still doing hem silly feints to the side, which just lets opponents close him down, but much much better. Won a couple of headers defensively, and also won two headers at the other end. Kept it simple as well. He still had a tendency to play the ball infield when hitting long, which just gives away possession. Surprising one that as any coach would teach to always hit lines when going for hit and hopes as it puts full backs under pressure and gives wingers something to chase. Putting it in the middle is just giving up possession easily. But that’s just a niggle of mine. He was vastly improved over the rest of his time here. Good to see, and maybe signs of settling down.
  7. It’s because the FA are like our NHS and Parliament. It’s a dinosaur establishment that needs a serious overhaul.
  8. This. If you watch the replay, he was marked. He makes a slight feint and it earns him half a yard. This gives him a free jump. After that, he needs to get it on target and low down.... and he does. Paul Rideout used to do it a lot for us. Win the first ball and keep it in play.
  9. That’s some deep stuff there! Anyone want to hire me as a motivational speaker? I’m new to it, but I’ll work hard and can learn. I’ll put in extra training, technique can improve! First touch can get better!
  10. Haf, Bailey, your arguing for the sake of it now. He made a mistake against Newcastle. A very bad call from him. Against Chelsea, he has a very similar incident, and he made a better decision. Yes it shows his decision making needs work, but Chelsea also showed that maybe he is working on said decision making. Another young lad that needs to learn his trade, be it technique, ability, attitude or ego. Let the children play! They will get bruises, make mistakes and get shouted at. But the characters will come through better for it.
  11. Haha me and you actually have something in common then 😉 I have backed him since the start, and am still getting laughed at! Hea not as good as Gana though 😉
