Re: Injury watch 2017-18 season

McCleary looked well off the pace at times last night.

Quinn was a welcome return.

Plenty of positives to take from tonight's game. Cracking goals. Roll on round 3.

Re: Rumour - Tomer Hemed

Just confirmed. Brighton have signed Ghana striker Raphael Dwamena from FC Zurich. Suggests that deal maybe possible. £12m apparently, that's a fcuking huge gamble on a player who, albeit with an impressive goalscoring record in the second tier of Swiss and Austrian football, has never played top f...

Re: The Stam passing game

Our problem is in midfield. That's our priority area for me. We need someone who can dictate the pace of the game from the middle of the park, ensure the team move as a unit and is intelligent enough to be able to turn possession into attack very quickly. We could buy any striker you like, we aren'...

Re: Back From The Match - Preston

I thought we improved in the second half. If we played like that the whole game we would not have lost. I can't understand people saying Preston should have won by more. They weren't much better than us. Bacuna got more involved in the second half. Preston aren't a great team. Played to their stren...

Re: The Stam passing game

Passing game is fine. Though as was the case today. Too many poor passes were made. Players having too many touches before moving the ball on. A lack of tempo in our play. An inability to stretch the opposition defence. When the passing game doesn't work or we do find ourselves a goal down. What's P...

Re: Back From The Match - Preston

This was a poor performance. The starting line up in midfield/attack totally lacked physicality. Preston got in the players faces from the off and it showed throughout.

At the very least a defensive midfield player has to be found before the window shuts. JVB appearing somewhat injury prone.

Re: CONFIMRED - Leandro Bacuna

Evans less so, he demonstrates little to suggest he has anything to shine above others at this level. Teams require workhorses as well. Not just stars. Stam is no doubt giving Evans clear instructions as to his role. Certainly has improved. Not least that he lasts the full 90 minutes. Rather than b...

Re: CONFIMRED - Leandro Bacuna

Has to be a step up from Swift & Evans. Seeing that these lads are still only 22. Just the sort of experienced pro that's required in the squad. True.... but Kelly is only 21 and shows much more in terms of presence, effort and overall ability. Plenty of games last year that Kelly was ineffecti...
