    Jack Marriott - a dud?

    It's the OP I'm ignoring. I quite like your comments, usually!

    England v Spain

    Said it during the World Cup, Lingard and Alli are not the type of midfield players who will control a game against top class opposition. Really they are attacking players who play deep. We need to find the blend necessary to control the midfield, or we will continue to lose games like this.

    Max Lowe - joined Aberdeen on loan until Jan

    I see him as a very good left-sided midfield prospect and not as a left-back because he isn't a natural defender. Sometimes players get shoe-horned to play in positions they are not suited to. it's a waste!

    Playing style

    I do get bored by the argument that there's only one way to play during a match. There's no such thing as a long-ball or short-ball game. Players should play with intelligence and make the right choices dependent on the game at that time. Obviously giving the ball away needlessly is counterproductive, but there's always room for a Huuddlestoneesue long pass to the feet of an attacking player. As a fan I get annoyed at aimless, hopeful punts forward, but I get equally annoyed with slow possession based football which achieves nothing but boredom. As one of our managers said, possession for possession’s sake is pointless. We need to play a high intensity pressing game and effectively use the ball when we have it. The press should not be too high otherwise you get a situation like in the Man City v Huddersfield game, where the goalkeeper booted long to Aguero for him to score. As someone famous once said "football is a simple game, made complicated by fools".
  12. We need to remember Clough resigned. He was definitely a bit of a prima donna. Clough actually regretted his decision and told Roy Mac (when Roy was manager) that it was foolish to argue with the Chairman.

    v Millwall (A) Match Thread

    I think the problem with the team at the moment is that the balance is all wrong. Our midfield is made up of players more suited to playing in the middle e.g Lawrence isn't a winger and like a lot of our players would prefer to play in a freer role, behind the strikers; Bryson is wasted in his current role. Hopefully Davies will be back soon and Tomori can be moved to right back, or maybe as a DM.
