  1. I am most excited by Sibley too, however Lee Buchanan looks a very accomplished defender too. He has pace, good feet, can head and has a tackle on him reminiscent of my all time great Colin Todd! Whether he grows tall enough to be a first team centre half is one question, but he is very good at left back.
  2. I do hope that Frank stays and is brave. We need a spine with more quality than Roos, Johnson, Bryson or Huddlestone. We need to retain the loanees (head says that's unlikely except for Tomori) and/or supplement the squad with similarity successful replacements. I do hope this can be done by a combination of promoting youngsters e.g. Sibley, Thomas, Bird, MacDonald et al plus some inspired loanees. I would like to see permanent signings of a goalkeeper and young centre half as priority, having already got Shinnie as DCM and future Captain.
  3. I agree with you on Nugent's performance tonight, and felt he did a better job than Wilson, Lawrence, Johnson, and Malone. Even Mount and Bogle were shackled. Though they kept showing. However I would have played Marriott in front of Nuge, because I think he is the better finisher, whilst his hold up play is improving.
  4. Top performance from the u18s. They were the cultured football team. It was incisive, high press, attack minded and completely unsettled Arsenal. Very much the Lampard "identity" blueprint. Sibley was stand out, he could run frighteningly fast with the ball. Jason Knight marauded too. Morgan Whitaker and Archie Brown were fast, effective wingers who took their goals exceedingly well. None of them could of made such an impact without Max Bird mopping things up majestically as CDM. Or the tireless running of Tyree Wilson up front. Lee Buchanan was quick, strong and skilful at LB. Jordan Brown grew into the game at RB. Sam French was perhaps unsighted for their first goal but otherwise was assured. What a crop of players I so hope we can keep and nurture half a dozen into the first team squad. COYL!!
  5. Frank et al are a rookie management team (Mr Abramovich please take note!). They have courageously taken on a big challenge in DCFC. Probably bigger than they expected. FFP has clearly bit us hard. The lack of activity in January proved that. Inspite of this they have reduced the average age of the 1st team. Tried to incorporate academy players in the 1st team squad. Used their contacts to bring in 3 loan gems. Tried to introduce a possession based pressing game. They have changed formation and tactics. We seem fitter. We have had some excellent performances e.g. WBA and Manchester United. This has all been done with a net spend close to break even. They have raised expectations with us in/near promotion places all season. Just to be there is an enormous achievement for a rookie management team. I would love us to go into the Premiership next season. But either way am looking forward to the summer transfer window because Frank and his management team will have every opportunity to create an exciting squad for whichever division we are in. A squad not only signed up to their high press tactics but one with the strength, vitality, youth and ability to be able to consistently deliver it, no matter our opposition.
