Re: Building for next season

Just we were attacked down the flanks quite a bit this season and everything I know and have seen about Gunter (not just this season) points to him being completely unsuitable to playing as a CB whatever the team shape is. Totally agree. There was next to no defensive cover (tracking back) for the ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Another thought - this does mean we could revive the 'wing-back' idea. I guess that both Obita and Yiadom would be better suited to a more free-flowing, attacking role. But then I hear that Clement isn't keen on that style. Something like --------------------------------Manone ---------------------...

Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

Great! Happy days! I'm no fan of Gunter but a big problem could have been the lack of competition for his starting spot. Hopefully this changes that. Perhaps there's interest in Gunter already. Which has prompted the quick deal. Perhaps. Or more likely they have been pushing at this one to beat oth...

Re: Building for next season

The benefit of ifollow over attending a game is you have instant replay at your finger tips. Which I used to re-watch the many goals we conceded this season. The benefit of being at the game is that you have a much bigger picture than that on the screen. It's also what others don't do that matters....

Re: 2017/2018 - What went wrong?

Stam had one very good season, esp considering where we had been, and then he had one bad season. Can hardly say that the very good season was memorable for the quality of the football. There were enough indifferent / poor performances to suggest that the squad was "fragile". By the secon...

Re: Goodbye

Okay his primary job was to keep us in the division, but looking back on the season, I think Stam would've done that anyway. We have had some quite woeful performances under clement and I just think he is not the right man to take us forward. I don't think we've actually played well once under his ...

Re: Building for next season

Remainder should be given an opportunity. Cooper was a classic example of Stam letting a player go who wasn't a good enough technical footballer. Yet is proving himself more than able to play at Championship level. Change needs to be gradual. We need to build systematically and develope a style. Wh...

Re: Building for next season

Most people first and second lists are basically identical. I would put Kelly on the first list though. From the low bar we are starting from. Unlikely we'll see wholesale changes. Kelly needs a season or more in the lower leagues. Elphick would make an ideal replacement for McShane. Both Moore and...

Re: BFTT Cardiff

Terrible, nervy game, but probably a 0-0 that I wont forget in a hurry, for the right reasons. Considering some of the defending we've witnessed in the previous 91 championship games (plus cup games). I was relaxed. We defended with composure. Partnering JVB and Bacuna as a defensive midfield pairi...

Re: BFTT Cardiff

Thank you Birmingham.

Job Done.

Season over.

Hopefully Clement will sign Elphick, or at least bring a couple more players of his ilk into the squad. There is a foundation of a team. Just needs more offensive capability.

My guess is that he'll be on the bench. The starting line up needs to be solid to weather the battering that be on it's way.
