Bruno Fernandez arrived at Manure on the 30th.
One starts and one on the bench in the Prem today.
JKA joined us 2 and 3 days earlier.
Sometimes you just trust a talented player to adapt and see how he does.
My self imposed ban from mentioning him disallows me from commenting.SG90 wrote: ↑Sat Feb 01, 2020 5:33 pmBeyond caring about these frauds anymore. And before anyone tells me I can't criticise Bielsa or Bamford, I can and I will. That arrogant prick shouldn't play for us again after covering his ears for scoring two tap ins that I could've scored, but he's still getting picked every week. JKA obviously needs to prove himself against u23 opposition before being given a chance. But hey we nearly got promoted two years in a row, so I'm sure Radz will give Bamford a pay rise and five year contract.
I agree, why are our new players not featuring, I guess Bielsa needs to perform a lobotomy on them so they don't play with too much individuality when that come on. This whole learn the system business flatters us. 1) is not that complicated 2) They can just watch last seasons games on video.3) our present players are not that great.
A team needs new blood, if only not to wear out our 1st team players mentally and physically in the run up to the end of the season.
Apart from that....
Dallas and Klich are just too average. One pass and they are done.
When Alioski joined us he was an attacking winger, what has happened to him? He has had his game stymied IMHO.
Costa had one of his better games, beating player and getring to by line.
If we don't try another striker of course Bamford will be our top scorer.
Pablo had a stinker.
Tyler is confident and we need that and when he came on he was able to float some nice balls into dangerous areas.
Beilsa needs show some faith in his bench players.
Next week, same 11, same outcome. Just hope we dont have the same outcome as last season.
Also can our players smile sometimes, its a privedge to play for this club NOT a burden.
OR DONT SELL JANSSON!!!!!!!!
chin chin !!
He's a good manager but not a successful one because he's too one dimensional and doesn't take risks
I don't know whether to laugh or cry. For two seasons we said needed that, but he arrogantly dismissed it. Now it's too late to do anything about it.
Meslier Ayling Berardi White Alioski Klich Shackleton Costa Poveda Harrison Augustin
What will happen:
Casilla Ayling Cooper White Alioski Dallas Klich Costa Pablo Harrison Bamford
Why, well bacause we have exactly the same coach, players, tactics and weaknesses = nothing has been learned.
We cannot do the basics: can't defend set-pieces, can't maintain our composure in the final third, and are completely impotent from set-pieces, this gives a leg-up to any opposition, including poor sides like Millwall, Wign, QPR, etc.
As with the last four seasons, these are a bunch of bottlers who can't take the pressue and capitulate every time.
The wheels came off against Cardiff, and that was that folks.
Bielsa must take his share of the blame, we're losing games and he just sticks with the same eleven - we are 100% predcitable.
No way are we going up this season, I'll predict that we'll finish 9th or 10th.
What was the pitch from Orta to IP and JKA - come and watch us f£ck it up again
I would agree with a lot of that we certainly aren't that far apart chap. We obviously disagree on some individuals but that's life. Alioski along with the majority is poor in general with his delivery.faaip wrote: ↑Sat Feb 01, 2020 6:43 pmI'm a big fan of Berardi, to the extent I'll probably get called creepy again. I think he's as good a defender as White. He's certainly better on the ball than our captain imo. I prefer Alio off the bench, he's a poor defender for me but he's probably the best right winger in the squad
It was a fluke goal but it should take more than one goal to beat us at home versus a bottom three side. The defence not the issue today.
So frustrating, all that attacking with no goals thanks to two or three goal-line clearances and some good defending by Wigan, but also due to some poor final ball passing.
And then there was there goal, against the run of play and off a deflection that 99 times out of 100 wouldn't have ended anywhere near the goal never mind somehow looping in. Not sure how Kiko missed the ball altogether. He did the right thing in trying to tip it over as he was in no position (not due to any fault of his, but due to the freaky circumstances) to punch it clear, but for some reason made no contact with it.
I'm not a manager etc, but to me there seams to be an obvious answer? Bamford is a great work horse but he's no marksman, either replace him or introduce an out and out stricker, and drop Ali, who I feel is one of our least effective player in the system we are playing
