Good report again toomb, agree with it all. McDonald HAS to be moved further upfield to assist Afobe who was on the wing, in midfield and on one occasion, passing back to Ikeme....a waste of his talent, he is being drained out a la Kevin Doyle.

Yep, Afobe's demise, mirrors that of Doyler, why do the club do it? God help us, if this club sale drags on and on. We desperately need, a change in direction, in fact any direction would do.

We need to know whether the quality of the sandwiches at the fans parliament has been hit by Morgan's departure.

There won't be any! A few jugs of water, and some bags of crisps, probably, not Walkers either.

Cheers, Tom. A much better performance than I dreamt possible, it seems.

Genuinely, holding them for 85 minutes is about as good as I could have hoped for. I fear that had they scored early, it'd have been a cricket score though...

The nature of the Premier league beast tactically is keeping the game as much as possible in front of their own holding midfield players.
Circulating the ball until opponents switch off or tire.

The kind of game thats risk averse rather than high chance creation.

Teams tend to tick over rather than move into full throttle mode, thats todays game.
Something Man Utd supporters in particular find hard to come to terms with.

The back two central defenders for the high quality teams are merely insurance against a longer ball and a starting point to re start proceedings.

Well written report that, but the match performance itself has me scratching my head again.

I would have thought that ALF and Mason should know each other's game from their Cardiff days, but it is bad coaching or, bad understanding or both if Siggy is winning the ball and laying it off and Mason or someone else isn't there to scoop it up.

All very frustrating. :(

Kenny has thought patterns which suit 4-4-2 but he understands the requirement of playing 4-2-3-1.

He seems confused to me and thats reflected in the players not being sure of their positions, roles and requirements.

I think you have a point and we have too many slow players; VLP who has speed isn't a decent footballer either.

I like what little I've seen and read about Mason and I don't think that ALF is such a bad footballer.

KJ says that he likes EEL:

http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2016/02/16/wo ... -ethan-eb/?

...but like Iorfa he loses concentration.

Batth doesn't lead. The defence stand around waiting for the flag or the whistle, and the midfield is just a mess with too many permutations and not enough guile. Who is the playmaker, for example? Who commands the defence? Who's the target man? If after the time he has had and the players he's bought he doesn't know his best team/formation for the circumstances/tactics then we're sunk.

Leaders aren't manufactured, they are born, and Danny boy is no born leader, end of. There were a couple of mix-ups on Saturday with EEL, which could have been costly, as he does not communicate. Another bad decision from Ken, unless his hand is being forced by Thelwell.

But, despite losing key players, the Kenny Jackett 'style' of football is still a mystery. I would be fascinated to watch the 1st team squad training.

Thanks, but I didn't witness much long ball play today or, should I say hoof it anywhere down the pitch. We seemed to try to play it out from the back and sometimes I was nail biting thinking someone is going to lose the ball in the almost last man position.

Danny punts it forward, but usually to about the halfway line and today, was when he had little choice, but to get rid quickly.

I'd be interested to hear more of a critique of Siggy as watching him today, he just doesn't seem the polished article appearing to not understand when he should make a run or not and having a stab when perhaps a pass might have brought better results. I didn't think that he won that much in the air and was lucky not to get a second yellow for his over enthusiasm. Fell over the ball or his own feet when a decent goal chance was on, but in fairness, did have the shot that hit the post. I have just watched O'Hara miss a better chance for Fulham.

Anyway, I am really pleased with today's performance, but the way some folk on here are playing it down, then, I must have missed some bloody good football over the past season or two. :roll: :wink:

I thought Siggy was poor, I just don't think he's that good a footballer. But, I didn't think the service to him was really anything he could do anything with. Too many long balls for him to chase or win a flick on, and given the distance between him and the rest of the midfield at times, I thought he had a fairly thankless task

I thought there was good movement at times (at last) but the trouble was that whoever had the ball didn't expect the movement and so quite often the pass went to the vacated space for the opponent to collect. Summat to work on in training. Oh, hang on...only two games left so they'll be thinking of their holidays.
