Re: Blunting the Blades and walking on the Wilder side? BWFC v Sheffield Utd 25/8/18

That was dreadful, but let's not get carried away. People have suddenly gone from being really pleased with the graft and work in the midfield to calling them static. We all (I assume) knew we were going to struggle to get things right at home this season and that results like this would happen. I d...

Cheers Bristol. McGoldrick will need watching, as will Sharp and Clark, still, we're an improved unit and I'm confident we'll get sometrhing out of this.
We've shown we can deny the opposition chances if everyone is focused and on it. That's what the game will come down to.

Re: Lets zero in and get these Monkeys off our back. BWFC v Birmingham 8pm 22/8/18

To call that save one for the cameras is very harsh! I didn't say one for the cameras. I said it was a great save for the cameras. I've watched Jussi have bad games, for example, then gone home and watched MotD and he's looked like a world-beater, because it's stuff like that that ends up on highli...

Re: Lets zero in and get these Monkeys off our back. BWFC v Birmingham 8pm 22/8/18

I should add, I'm singling him out only because some people either here or on Twitter were saying Alnwick was MotM and I just can't see how anyone gets there. If you think I'm being harsh, fair enough - but MotM? I also thought Beevers, though he played okay for the most part, dropped some absolute ...

Boro getting a win is a bugger, I was hoping we'd go top when we thump Sheff Utd.

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

You got me. Throw out the 10 points from 12 formula, drop two members of the back four and throw the kid who barely knows the names of the rest of the guys in the squad into the midfield engine room. We're ready. Nice one. Do you play Championship/Football Manager much? I think we'll need to integr...

Re: Lets zero in and get these Monkeys off our back. BWFC v Birmingham 8pm 22/8/18

I don't think I'm being harsh in the slightest. I'm not saying he's a bad player or anything like that, but he had a bad day at the office. Good goalkeeping isn't just about making a spectacular save, you've got to command your box and make good decisions. Alnwick came for balls he got nowhere near,...

Re: Lets zero in and get these Monkeys off our back. BWFC v Birmingham 8pm 22/8/18

Just finished watching the game on iFollow. Anyone who tells me Alnwick was in for MotM needs their eyes testing. He had an absolute 'mare, for me. Couldn't catch a cold, his kicking was awful and misjudged pretty much every ball into the box. If his defenders hadn't helped him out he'd have cost us...

Re: Lets zero in and get these Monkeys off our back. BWFC v Birmingham 8pm 22/8/18

Absolutely. But he looks good. Played a major part in the goal too. I like Tayls. He’s got his limitations but he’s a real trier and grafter. I've been pleased with everyone so far. We've a few who'd maybe not be top of my list to retain, but I think there's a really good ethos at the club now (on ...

Re: Lets zero in and get these Monkeys off our back. BWFC v Birmingham 8pm 22/8/18

In fairness Andrew Taylor has done nothing wrong at all. Showing all those who wrote him off to be fools! As Dibble says, he still struggles against what he's always struggled against (and what most fullbacks do) in pace and tricks. He doesn't make many mistakes, he just has limitations. Olkowski a...

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

True. But I think a striker is the short term priority as per Ken’s notes. Reckon the CB talk is more longer term and we’d do it now for one if the price suited. Centre forward does seem to be the priority, as it has been all summer. I think that's the only one where Parky would do his nut it we "g...

Re: Lets zero in and get these Monkeys off our back. BWFC v Birmingham 8pm 22/8/18

Parky is showing that he can build a squad that makes sense. Right is certainly the strongest flank, though. True of a lot of sides, that...unsurprising given only about 1 in 10 are left footers.

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

We have Wilson and Hobbs as CB cover. Right now Wheater and Beevers aren’t being dropped for a long time. We are fine at CB. That was what I expected, but we are being linked to a few now and they're all the same type - which seems to mean (this summer at least) that we're in the market. Happy with...

We're suddenly being linked with a few centre halves. Quite surprising.

Also, interesting to hear most fans I've spoken to rave about Olkowski when the BN have chosen to give him the joint lowest rating in the side. Hoping to get to watch the match tonight.

Re: Lets zero in and get these Monkeys off our back. BWFC v Birmingham 8pm 22/8/18

Wildschut's main threat is running in behind for flick-ons and through balls. If we want him to dribble with it he's going to need more options offered, because thus far he's tended to run down blind alleys.
