Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thur 19th July)

Not sure there is the need for all the panic over KP training as a centreback. If Bielsa is planning on playing KP as an anchorman type midfielder it makes sense to get KP used to playing as a centreback as he will likely have to drop into that position several times during a match. With KP not bein...

Re: Forest Green Rovers v Leeds United

People saying about the team being a few players short last night but don't forget that Pearce, Vieira, Jannson and the 2 new signings didn't feature. Similarly Klich and Ideguchi and Tyler Roberts didn't so when you take that into account it may simply have been half a team last night and half a te...

Re: To Panic Or Not To Panic

Well he probably has to print something everyday, hearsay better then nout :) Just odd, Kinnear was on about "advanced talks" everything very advanced when Bielsa arrived. Now we "might" make a move for Jozefzoon now someone else has :oops: We may have been in advanced talks with several players on...

Re: To Panic Or Not To Panic

I would be very surprised if we didn't make at least 2 very exciting signings (even if they were loans) before the transfer window shuts. Bielsa suggested 4 or 5 signings and as such we are halfway there. I don't overly care that they may be loans with no deal agreed to buy as unless we make it to t...

Re: To Panic Or Not To Panic

Another example is O'Kane. Fitted into Bournemouth's possession based system. Played great at the start of last season with people asking why he hadn't played more the season before. But then after our initial slump we changed the way we played and it just didn't suit him at all.

Re: To Panic Or Not To Panic

A classic case of turd polishing or players playing better in certain formations or tactics is Bamba. When he first came to us on loan he looked great as we were playing basic football, not trying to play out from the back. In the summer we changed manager and tried to play out from the back. This p...

I looked at Wiki and it was on there that he had been dropped for the last 5. Not saying Wiki is correct, just clarifying where id got the information from :tup:
Yeah I had done that too and then looked at some match reports on the BBC to see the lineups and had noticed it wasn't the case.

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 13th July)

Thought I read he was dropped mid season Seems to be a bit of misinformation about. He was banned for 3 matches towards the end of the season but came back into the team as soon as his ban was up and played from that point until the end of the season (I checked on the lineups and he was certainly n...

Re: To Panic Or Not To Panic

If we stick with the same old faces we can forget promotion You can't polish a turd To some degree, when it comes to football, you can. A good manager can certainly get more out of a squad than a bad manager and as Warnock has repeatedly shown getting a team organised and playing to a system can wo...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 13th July)

Usually the taller you are the slower to get down...BPF is the ideal height for a keeper A lot depends more on the keeper's build than just the size. Blackman is the exact same height as Thibaut Courtois and I wouldn't really say he had a weakness getting down to shots. On looking at Blackman's tim...

Re: To Panic Or Not To Panic

OMG another coach fallen Cooper's presence at ER, he'll soon see his deficiencies on the pitch if Bielsa is as good as I believe him to be If Cooper is used right he has shown he can be a decent centreback. Yes he has had some poor games and some shocking red cards (for stupid tackles rather than t...

Re: Championship Transfer Evolution

In theory as well having Victor Orta and the team dedicated to scouting and recruiting all over the world should make us better at being able to sign foreigners who are cheap but good enough - obviously a bit hit and miss so far and like Cjay says sometimes you have to wait a season for them to accl...

Phil Hay saying some deals are "bubbling away". Still waiting on Blackman to go ahead, not closed the door totally on Vydra and Hernandez and looking at alternatives but given the time frame we dont have many choices. Targets have been pretty well publicised but obviously some have fallen away, Bar...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 11th July)

Morning Weasel, so you're saying that given the choice between Rhodes and Hugill, you'd go Hugill? It is a tricky as no guarantees with either of them in terms of being a success so based solely on their career paths at present (Rhodes seemingly on the decline and Hugill on the rise) then I would p...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 11th July)

Rhodes seems to be on the decline given his limited playing time with recent clubs - if he could get his mojo back then he is a very good player at this level. Hugill seemed to be on the rise but then saw his career stall after moving to the prem and not playing - like so many other players. Hugill ...

Re: Transfers. Signings Rumours and Wishes.

Regardless, bit concerning that neither of these are 1st choice, or even 2nd choice targets. Hope we have a few aces up our sleeve. The thing there is though is that the club have upped the quality of the players they are targeting. Think back to January and the agreement we made to sign Jerry Mbak...
