    brady1993 got a reaction from Lambchop in 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

    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.

    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.

    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".

    brady1993 got a reaction from Alpha in 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.

    I think he makes about the same amount of tackles as Tom Lawrence and Tom Ince pg 
    He won the ball less than Will Hughes. But with about 70% pass accuracy he gives it away much better.
    He's good in the air but I don't know where he gets this reputation of being a good defensive player. He wins less than Forsyth and gives it away more. His best performances for Derby came under Mac.
    Why will we be glad of him when it's scrappy?

    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.

    Not Johnson. People say Johnson had a good game when he manages to do the basic stuff everyone else can do when they're having an average game. 
    There's a couple of areas that need some attention when it comes to cover. I like our starting 11 and I'm excited about the way we've played but with a long long season ahead I'm not sure if we have the depth to take on injuries and suspensions while still playing that high intensity.

    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.

    brady1993 reacted to David in One from four?   
    Nugent, only because he seems like a character you would like around the the dressing room. Chances are they are unlikely to play much, at his age, more likely to accept that kind of role than the other 3 and possibly be a better fit for Lampard if we do need him to come in.
    Martin and Jerome could be first choice elsewhere, starting week in week out, Blackman also. 
    So if I have to pick one from the 4 to keep, Nugent. Makes the most sense.

    I think it's extremely unlikely that either will be sold unless a truly silly offer came in. Both seem to be highly rated by the current coaching staff and both seem to be nailed on to start.

    Agreed. Personally on Hudds/Ledley, I think Hudds is the better player but I think we'll be a better team if we play Ledley.
