    DesertRam reacted to Jourdan in Max Bird   
    Bird found his role in the side in the absence of Bielik.
    Unfortunately for Max, Bielik is back and his progression after his injury has been far beyond what anyone reasonably anticipated.
    I don’t think anyone would have foreseen Bielik returning and coping as well as he has done with regular football after such a serious injury.
    Max just needs to stay patient. He’ll get chances again. But he is hindered by the fact that Rooney prefers the combination of Bielik, Shinnie and Knight above all else right now.
    Sibley is in exactly the same boat. His progression has stalled somewhat too, but that’s because the manager has different ideas on what he wants from his midfielders and Shinnie and Knight at the moment take preference.
    Personally I would love to see Bird/Bielik, Knight and Sibley as the midfield three one day but I think Rooney is trying to be as pragmatic as he can be. Time will tell if he is vindicated.

    I think there's some value to that school of thought. I was tad worried about over-playing CKR and Bielik but my concerns appear to have been unfounded. I think by happenstance, the Rotherham cancellation has actually helped us in this regard too with lads able to rest up a little and do some conditioning work in their time off.
    As for upfront options, I think we're a little thin on the ground and that's the one concern, so another fast start and early goal would help from a game management perspective. The Wendies grafted a good result against a Boro side who are now proving hard to beat so while I'm hopeful of a win, I don't think we'll roll over them the way we did Birmingham. Be lovely if we did though!

    Knight made it look easy but that was a class finish. 
    With young players, you wonder if it will last after the first burst of good games. Knight has passed through that stage now and is a genuine class first team player. 
    Box to box doesn’t really describe it does it? Box-to-wing-back-to-box-out-to-other-wing-back-to-middle-burst-forward-check-burst-score doesn’t have quite the same ring to it but it’s more accurate.

    The 2000/1 bet to win the league looks a trifle ambitious..
    But the 200/1 for promotion might last a little longer
