So let me get this right,hes playing our mentally challenged players out of position in order to stress them out and get them to
eventually move on or have a nervous breakdown.Thereby showing Mr Morris they were all shiite to begin with and he needs more money.
Got to say its a bit Double Dutch to me.
It doesn't matter if someone finds it funny or not. The rules are the rules. UEFA: "the use of gestures, words, objects or any other means to transmit any message that is not fit for a sports event, particularly messages that are of a political, ideological, religious, offensive or provocative nature".
I'm no expert but I think a flag of the pope's face falls under the category of religious objects.
The left sided CB spot is our Achilles heel: Bielik gets dragged out of position too easily; Clarke and Davies too slow; Buchanan too inexperienced. I think we have two options. Either go 3 at the back or sit deeper and play 2 DMs
At this time last season I think we had made nine signings.
At the time, I felt confident and excited about 3-4 of them. Mount, Wilson and (funnily enough) Jozefzoon. Brentford usually sign good players for this level. Marriott too obviously had an excellent track record at Peterborough which had caught everyone’s attention.
The big question marks were over Waghorn, Malone, Evans, Holmes and Tomori.
Waghorn - did we really need another forward?
Malone - was he better than Forsyth and why not give Lowe a chance instead?
Evans and Holmes - what were their best positions and where would they fit in?
Tomori - isn’t he too raw?
I would say Mount, Wilson and Marriott did as many expected. Waghorn and Holmes grew as the season went on and proved how valuable they could be moving forward.
Tomori was very much the success story of Lampard’s signings. Lampard’s best signing, in my mind. No one watching his debut v Leeds could have predicted what was to follow.
Evans and Malone haven’t done badly but we are probably still asking the same questions. It’s only really Jozefzoon that has completely failed to live up to expectations.
It will be interesting to see how Cocu’s signings get on. Maybe Hamer, Dowell and Paterson will surprise us and do better than anticipated.
But the overwhelming feeling from me is that four of the six signings we have made are questionable. Add that to failures in previous windows and you’re right in saying that having a shake up of the recruitment team might not be a bad idea.
