  1. Does entertainment/style of play really matter?

    The issue at the minute is that the way we are playing has very obvious weaknesses that have already been exposed this season. It's not about trying to play pretty football, it's about trying to improve the football we play to win more games... That being said, yesterday showed some very promising signs, so I'm hopeful that we'll get the balance right soon
  2. Derby County V Notts Forest

    Great result yesterday at a time where it was important to pick up 3 points. Given the creativity and quality Vydra showed yesterday, dropping him recently for Johnson surely points to the fact that the midfield 2 behind him need support due to a lack of mobility which is a concern. However, Thorne showed yesterday that he may well be very close to returning properly for us and the prospect of a Thorne-Ledley partnership is exciting. Huddlestone has an incredible passing range but when we play using only 2 central midfielders, his lack of pace can sometimes leave him slightly short, he's useful against teams that don't press and should be used as such but Thorne seems a better fit when we need a combination of physicality and technical ability. The defence, barring the slip up in the first half, was generally solid. Forsyth looked better, caught out of position a couple of times but with match fitness hopefully he'll start cutting that out. Similar situation with Lawrence, showed glimpses but there's hopefully more to come as the team starts to click more. Yesterday was an effective performance and got us the result we all wanted but I'm hoping football-wise, there's more to come. We need to start playing with a bit more tenacity and urgency, otherwise the teams that can actually attack will catch us cold I feel. Oh and Nugent winding the Forest fans up has cemented his place in my heart
  3. GT The number "10"

    I winced whenever anyone even went near him
  4. Joe Ledley’s Beard

    is that Amon Amarth?
  5. January 2018 Transfer Suggestions Thread

    Jota hasn't scored for Brum yet... you thinking of Diogo Jota for Wolves?
  6. Colin Gibon

    stop monkeying around
  7. Baird can do the job in midfield

    Baird and Huddlestone playing together could well contend for the slowest midfield ever witnessed...
  8. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    Thorne we have no indication as to how his fitness will stand up over the course of the season. Baird has been woeful whenever he's played there due to a distinct lack of mobility, and then Guy and Bird have no experience of any kind at Championship level, hardly stellar backup options if Johnson or Huddlestone gets injured, let alone falls out of form...
  9. Strong squad

    Johnson on the left... one of our least mobile players?
  10. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    Well we currently don't even have a singular backup so your attempt at sensationalism has fallen a bit flat
  11. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    So if we get a single midfield injury, we're gonna be forced to use u23s in the starting XI? For a team that in their own words wanted to challenge for the title, that is shocking...
  12. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    Who? Arguably our best midfield prospect from the academy has been loaned to Swindon... Callum Guy is probably the only realistic option but if we get an injury, it's a lot of pressure on a player that would probably otherwise only be making bit-part appearances this season
  13. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    I'm not interested in reading ''this highlights the difficulties of the transfer window''... where's the apology to the fans for this monumental c*** up??
  14. Jota - Signed for Birmingham City

    I hope Mel's on the phone at Bramall Lane right now asking whether they'd take £7 million
  15. Sheffield United v Derby County

    True, while I agree he's definitely not in form for us at the minute, he's exactly the sort of player that if he were to leave now, would have a blinder of a season for any other club. Seems massively short on confidence at the minute which is affecting his decision making. Gary needs to sort it out soon though because we've known from last season's experience that this was likely to be an issue
