    Sparkle reacted to Wolfie20 in Trialist & Martin   
    Agree we should have persevered with Martin and Marriott upfront with Lawrence in behind them but the constant niggling injuries to Marriott have been a major concern for me.
    Also it's not as simple as those 3 playing together - the 3 behind them are crucial and here again frequent absences through injury to Bielik and Shinnie has meant far too much of the onus for providing the supply has been down to Holmes. I like his energy and enthusiasm but his final pass isn't consistently good enough for him to be the main source of creativity from midfield.

    I don't really see any point in this. Yes, he is good player and should fit in well to the Cocu's system as a direct, fast and technical player. But we won't be able to buy him so what's the point? I'm afraid this season is lost already, why would we go for someone who is "only" a good player in January?
    So no for me. Save the money to the summer dealings or get someone in who has similar ability but would be available for transfer.

    Needs time and support 
    we have lost basically 7 of the first team from last season 
    3 of this season’s signings are out injured 
    3 of the current starters were out injured/ ill for most of last season and they are the experienced ones 
    he needs time and better players

    Hamer- no different to roos
    bogle - poor first half much better second half
    davies - ok
    forsyth - ok
    lowe - see bogle
    evans - at best he is 3rd choice at that position- not very good
    holmes - stands and watches when the opposition have the ball ok when running towards goal but little comes from him
    young lad - scampers about
    Lawrence - has to play because he is one of the few who might score a goal but nothing today
    waghorn - rubbish first half a bit better second BUT he misses our best chance in nearly every game it seems
    martin - decent first half - but delivery to him is dreadful 
    A very poor watch

    The problem Martin is having, is that he's laying the ball off to Lawrence/Holmes/Marriott/Waghorn etc and moving into space, but the ball never comes back to him.  The other guy just dribbles into a brick wall and loses it, or hits a hopeless shot from distance.  When Martin was laying it off to Hughes/Bryson/Hendrick/Ward/Dawkins etc, he'd get it back for a tap in as often as not.

    Roos is much better.. lacking massively in confidence due to fan reaction from the playoff final. 
    Despite, Roos’ lack of confidence, Hamer doesn’t look any more commanding in the area and is much worse with the ball at his feet.

    Being aware of the opposition is one thing but I don’t think we are playing to our strengths

    In - we have a fraction of the team we had last season 
    we have had some consistent and ridiculous injuries 
    he needs 3 transfer windows where he picks players he wants
    play to our strengths though which is Marriott with Martin starting the game.

    Sparkle got a reaction from RoyMac5 in How good have Frank Lampard’s signings been   
    Malone - average 
    Evans - cheaper Butterfield without the shooting
    holmes - decent value but limited in ability
    jozz - useless at home in 18 months slightly better away from home poor value
    waghorn - decent enough but over priced 
    Marriott- he is a goalscorer but he is hardly on the pitch so he’s not is he? No comparison to vydra 
    shinnie - very decent value

    He has good effort but he is no central midfielder, he frequently just runs into opposing players he rarely looks up to pass progressively to a teammate, he hardly ever looks like scoring a goal or creating an assist and he has a dreadful habit of trying to beat an opponent in our half and lose the ball easily and leave us in deep trouble, as a winger he can be contribute to the team in a substitute situation but yeah he easily flatters to deceive.

    Unpopular opinion I'm sure, but Holmes gets away with murder.
    Always looks likely to break the lines and deliver, yet somehow never does.
    10/10 for effort, 3/10 for effect.

    Didn’t enjoy that but with the injuries we have I have to stomach it but QPR are a poor side and we looked one as well 
    Hamer - what I expected- no improvement on Roos 
    wisdom - did nothing wrong at all 
    davies - ok 
    forsyth - ok
    malone - poor in my opinion
    Evans - he’s just another Butterfield without the ability to shoot - I thought he was very poor
    bogle - tried but looked lost 
    holmes - sorry he is just not a central midfielder and unfortunately he is more dangerous to our defenders than the opposition defenders - I would play him wide 
    Lawrence- we needed more from him today
    waghorn - lovely free kick and he has the best delivery from a set piece but we hardly use it - stupid penalty against him
    marriott - waste of time when he is on his own 
    subs- Martin - little time ( why didn’t  he start after his last 2  home games 
    knight - a bit of urgency 
    whittaker - a bit of urgency 
    Cocu - I would have liked to have seen us with mobile central midfield ( knight sibley? Perhaps) do we need a defensive midfielder sitting on top of the central defenders and please 2 actual centre forwards playing next to each other
