Re: Jack Harrison

I don't want to slag him off because he always puts in 100 per cent and you can see how he works for the team. However, he's just not that good imo. As a winger he lacks the pace or skill needed to take full backs on and lacks the quality of pass/cross putting balls into the box. On the flip side he...

Re: Home Form

our style of play doesn't help. slow, steady build ups without any real pacey counter attacking style football when we're at home teams sit back and its difficult to break them down when we're away teams are more likely to come out and try and go for the win, meaning its easier for us to create clea...

Re: Bolton And Bury

The Nevilles ploughing millions into a club with no history in Salford, when their hometown club with family connections dies. Very sad. It's also a wake up call for those screaming for QSI to take us over. Being reliant on sugar daddies isn't sustainable, clubs should be running off their own turn...

Re: Bolton And Bury

I feel sorry for the fans and employees at Bolton and Bury, But a whole structure that depends on a Cup run, selling a player or promotion just to balance the books is ultimately flawed. Unfortunately we are in a situation where there are far too many professional football clubs in existence. Accor...

Re: Pablo Hernandez

For me Pablo is one of those frustrating geniuses. Absolutely awful for 85 minutes of a game with a 5 minute spell where is unbelievable. Hope he gets us promoted this season to end on a high but no way we can rely on him if we ever did get promoted sadly :(

Re: Stoke City v Leeds United 0-3 MOTM

White by an absolute country mile (Hernandez made some key passes but his general play is woeful). Will be the best player we've had at the club in an extremely long time if he can keep up this form. Only voting once as don't get the point in voting for 6 players for man of the match (kind of defeat...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thur 22nd Aug) - Selection headache for Bielsa?

Would love to see Costa in for Harrison next game. Think Harrison is a weak link going forward (poor crossing, can't beat his man) although works his socks off. Alternatively in for Hernandez who was poor last game and maybe needs a rest. Not sure it will happen though. Nketiah isn't a lone striker ...

Re: Sacrifice Who?

If we get anywhere near 20 million for Jack Clarke (after two decent performances and a handful of underwhelming ones) it would be an amazing piece of business. As it stands I think we'd accept just over 10 for him and, personally, I think that's a ridiculously high fee for someone with such little ...

Re: Next season

Would anyone take Pukki from Norwich, he was a journeyman striker before this season and probably isn't prem class. I'd love to get Che Adams from Brum too, seems a very Bielsa player playing the 10 role Definitely take pukki but no way Norwich will sell him. Maybe a loan in January if he isn't a h...

Re: Next season

Problem is money, Radz will not spend so what we have in funds will have to be raised by sales so make the squad weaker. If Radz doesnt get a ton of stick for this then he is very lucky because he has personally helped screw this up. Dont want to hear his excuses, all i want to hear from him is tha...

Re: Next season

For me the best thing to happen close season would be to get rid of Orta. He's brought in (with a few exceptions) a lot of very average and poor players. If you look at the team today it hardly contained any players signed by him... The spine of the team (and best players in it) were all from before...

Re: Derby County v Leeds Utd Play off semi final first leg

A decision from the refs went our way! Who knew it....maybe the EFL aren't out to get us after all... :lol: :lol: :lol:

You can bet if a decision goes against us in one of the other games it'll be "the EFL want us for TV money" again... :verysad:

Re: Ipswich Town v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Drifted in and out of this game a bit because we were playing so poorly. The thing for me is that's the issue is the way we play often means when we win possession we pass it around the defence 5 or 6 times (to get the possession stats up?!) and then start to work it forward. Great. We pass it nicel...

Re: Gotta Be Cursed

We're not cursed, we overachieved with a squad that was just not quite good enough and ultimately ran out of steam. I always thought that might be the case, given MB's style and the lean squad he prefers. It is what it is, and it's been a great season. As for the EFL; I never bought into the idea t...

We are cursed to have the EFL old Troggs in charge of our League, they do everything possible to disrupted our season and keep us in this league, those that don’t believe that just see which team/players got hit by bans following the Villa games, which team are likely to face a fine as well :duno: ...
