    RoyMac5 reacted to Needlesh in Chris Martin fitness   
    Chris is a maybe. Big wages, so tempting to ship him out if not going to be a regular, but...just maybe...he could be a massive asset.
    He's never been quick, so don't worry about his advanced 30 years of age. Irrelevant.
    He's healthy now, we're told, and we are going to be playing a system which is tailor made for his attributes and when some bottom half no-marks come here to stick all XI behind the ball, waste time and blag a 0-0, Chris offers the guile neither Waggy or Marriott can bring. (As B4 said)
    I'd give him every chance, and unless some wonderkid is available on loan, I don't see us spending wedge on a striker this summer so it may just happen.
     
    Also, must declare bias here, I ducking love Chrissy Martin, Derby's number 9 (teen).

    What, like Waghorn (29)?! 😁 If Martin is fit and over his illness so that he can play 90 minutes, then there is no reason he can't be the same intelligent footballer that he was pre the Mac2 debacle.

    RoyMac5 got a reaction from admira in Roos, Carson or a new senior keeper   
    Unbelievable the amount of posters writing off Carson, he got injured Roos got the shirt and kept it. But when push comes to shove you need to be able to trust your keeper. You need a keeper who commands his area *and* the defence - not Roos.
    Carson is a tremendous keeper at this level and would not look out of place in the Prem. Both Steele and Zubi thought so too. If Roos was so great how come Mitchell was preferred as back up? Not yet convinced by Given, would like to hear what Carson has to say but that's not likely to happen.

    Yes if he was fit. He’s a better keeper than Roos.

    Even in his 10 minute cameo today, I could see he's not quick enough and has the turning circle of a HGV.
    Sluggish.

    So we're excusing Carson's repeatedly poor performances based off this mystery injury that nobody has any proof of?

    My prediction is that Roos will not be in goal for all of our season
    If I’m wrong, we will conceded at least 80 goals in 46 games.

    RoyMac5 reacted to JuanFloEvraTheCocu'sNesta in Pre Season Friendly v Burton Albion (A)   
    I don't think some of the criticism Roos is getting is purely due to Wembley. He was flapping all over the place for the Burton goal today and has also looked suspect from crosses during his run in the team at times. I think they are fair enough criticisms, especially when he is looking to establish himself as our number one keeper.

    RoyMac5 reacted to MACKWORTHRAM in Pre Season Friendly v Burton Albion (A)   
    I said it long before Wembley that he's not good enough. It doesn't matter if it's pre season or not. Said it last season that as soon as Carson was fit he should have come back in.
    I know we'll get fans saying "RoOs iS tHe ScApEgOaT nOw iNsTeAd oF kEoGh" 
    He's 27 years old and he's made a total of 72 appearances in the last 6 years. There's a reason for that.

    Emergency maybe but he looks nothing like an actual CH to me and relying on him would be a major mistake for a season of championship football

    Hopefully Cocu will notice that Evans shouldn’t be starting at CH ( ok as an emergency during games but not starting)

    RoyMac5 reacted to Millenniumram in Who's going to be our unexpected success this season?   
    Think Marriott will be pivotal this year and establish himself in that forward slot and potentially break the 20 goal mark, becoming our most important attacker. That wouldn’t be so much of a surprise mind. Think sibley will break through as the season progresses and end it as a first choice CM, providing the spark that mount has left with.
