    Glen Kamara is a must. The guy is out of contract next summer. Dundee would let him go for a bargain fee in January.

    I think you’re understanding the job of the defensive midfielder.
    Busquets, for instance, made 7 tackles in the 4-2 win over Tottenham. More than anyone else on the pitch. Rakitic, in contrast, didn’t make any.
    He also posted a 100% pass accuracy.
    In a team that builds from the back, the holding midfielder is vital in linking the play. He has to pick up the ball off the GK and defenders, and then feed it to Barca’s other midfielders. He also is the guy who drops as the last man as the two CBs move wide. If he loses the ball at any point, the opposition have a clean run on goal. It requires huge amounts of responsibility. 
    As for the Dier comparison. That’s absurd and typical of a manager who can’t get his side playing good football. If he can’t recognise what Busquets brings to the team (as Dier offers little) then he’s so far out of touch.

    Keogh had an excellent game. Forsyth was garbage. Looked far too laboured.
    I’m amazed we’re 5th. Especially after winning just two of the last seven games.

    He made the wrong choice on two excellent counter opportunities. Both times he had Marriott in on his left, the first he used him as a decoy and shot wide and the second he tried a difficult throughball to FloJo which was cut out.
    In general he was much better, but so frustrating.

    Much better second half as we played probing football.
    The first half was poor. Too many trying to go for a killer pass too early and we were just giving it them back.
    Wasn’t impressed with a few of our counters in the second half. Far too greedy, and this time that was Wilson and not Lawrence.
    Thought we were the much better team second half. Sheffield United didn’t make the most of their first half dominance.

    For me he’s in the top three Derby players I’ve seen in my lifetime.
    - Top three greediest or most selfish
    - Top three in terms of consistently making the wrong decisions
    - Top three in terms of arrogance on the pitch
    - Top three most frustrating 
    I don’t know whether he is amazing in training and thus implored by his managers to play the way he does, or he’s incapable of learning. 
    All Championship wingers can be frustrating, I get that. Ward, Russell, Tommy Smith. They all blew hot or cold.
    But Lawrence is a different breed altogether. You could forgive him if he was a team player, but I just don’t see that in him.

    Having wanted Dean Smith here, I’m interested to know how he gets on witjout Brentford’s structure in place.
    We all know Brentford have their own recruitment policy and methods, and Dean Smith took over a team who already played a set way and boasted plenty of quality.
    Now we’ll find out how good he is as a coach, and whether he will change Villa’s playing style. 
    There will also be pressure to make an inmediate impact. It’s a brave move from Smith, especially as Brentford looked easily capable of making the top 6 this season.

    Of course it’s luck if it generates a random result. That is the very definition of luck.
    That’s like saying it’s not lucky to win the lottery because you bought the ticket.

    The technique isn’t a fluke. But where the ball ends up is pot luck. It’s a smash at goal, hoping the ball moves to deceive the goalkeeper. There is no aim, other than getting it on target.
    Wilson’s goal vs United moved outwards to the left.
    Wilson’s goal vs Ireland, using the same technique, moved inwards to the right.
    Same technique, two different movements on the ball. How can you say that isn’t luck or a fluke? He has no control on the movement, evident by the two different goals.
    Mount, using the inside of his foot, stands a much bigger chance of hitting it accurately, but then it’s more predictable for the goalkeeper.
    The benefit of Wilson’s technique is the unpredictability factor for the goalkeeper. Nobody can judge the flight of the ball, so if it’s powerful and on target, there’s probably a better chance it will go in.
    But for every 10 attempts of knuckleball, only 2 might hit the target. With Mount’s technique you’re looking at maybe 5.
