    Snake City watch

    Hatred is perhaps a strong word for how I feel about him. But I do dislike the guy, mostly because I think he has a nasty streak of dishonesty about hom and I think he somewhat selfishly went about his business in his time here to get a quick promotion on his CV or get close enough so he could secure a prem job. TLDR; The guy is a snake

    Snake City watch

    I think the issue with it was even when we were winning comfortabley it didn't feel comfortable. Teams would have more possession, better territory, create chances and have a whole load of shots against us. Yet we would clinically dispatch 2 or 3 good chances and win the game by a decent margin. It just felt unsustainable and I think the turn in form after January demonstrated that.

    To be honest I think a lot of fans could have done. It's the single most incompetent managerial displays I've ever seen and I'm convinced we would have been at a high risk of relegation had he not been sacked.

    Bradley Johnson

    Have been able to watch much this season unfortunately, how has his general ball retention been in games ? That's always been my biggest complaint with him.

    Duane Holmes - Signed on a 3 year deal

    Could be a case of someone Lampard/Morris sees as being able to develop into the role. I think a few of the signings we've made so far have been in a similar vein i.e. Mariott and Evans.

    Matej Vydra - Signed for Burnley

    I kinda find it funny your getting on your high horse about this when about a week a go you were arguing with @McLovin about selling Lawrence over Vydra and you were advocating playing Vydra in midfield. That's not to say I disagree with your current view but to quote the big lebowski "Your not wrong, your just being an asshole".

    v Reading (A) Match Thread

    I think he has a reputation for being a good defensive player purely because of his phsyicality and when he does defensive work it tends to be 'showy'. I.e. it's all muscling people off the ball or big tackles but people don't notice the numerous times he's got dragged out of position or isn't quite quick enough to close down properly or got us into to trouble in the first place from gifting possession. If it was up to me he'd be nowhere near the team purely off the basis that's he unreliable in possession which is criminal for a midfielder even for a supposed enforcer.

    This seasons surprise package? Player edition

    It can't be because this actually taking place rather than just being something that Gary thought would sound good.

    This seasons surprise package? Player edition

    If the friendlies are any evidence then he is starting too. In particular there seems to a be a nice synergy developing between him, Lowe and Mount.

    Mount and Bryson - who covers/rotates?

    I think the Butterfield of Huddersfield might be but he's a ways off that kind of form and he'd probably needs a fresh start. Its definately an area we could with competition or a talented understudy. Personally right now, I'd rather just have Elsnik on the bench but he seems to not be favoured at the minute.

    Mount and Bryson - who covers/rotates?

    I think it's almost certainly a case of being limited due to the squad size. Ideally we'd have at least one midfielder who could compete for a spot with Bryson and Mount. It might be (after yesterday) that FL views that player as being Wilson or at least sufficiently strong cover there.

    Mount and Bryson - who covers/rotates?

    Everything you've described about Butterfield also describes Johnson.

    v Wolves (H) Match Thread

    As daft as it sounds Ledley make "keep everything ticking" into an art form. Going to go out on a limb here, but I think he's the best pure defensive midfielder (as opposed to deep laying playmaker) in the championship.

    One from four?

    I think at the point they are 4th choice they are firmly surplus to requirements and should be looked to offloaded. It'd take a truly unlucky streak of injuries for it to become a problem (he says having a mild twitch remembering 14/15).

    One from four?

    I think your spot on here. If the remaining forwards are going to be firmly behind Mariott and Waghorn (if he comes) then they need to be ok with limited game time and probably not making the bench that often. Nugent will probably be the most ok with this kind of role and gives you value off the pitch. I suspect it might be a case of them all being in the shop window and us going with whoever is left as third choice. It might be even we decided that Bennett is an adequate third choice/competition for all of the front three spots.
