Re: Swans eye Sunderland’s Scottish hitman?

I know we are struggling for goals but dont you think we should try extra training before we hire a hitman? We are struggling for goals not because the frontmen we have are inadequate, but our defense and midfield don't get the ball to them early enough. By the time they finish playing pretty on th...

Re: Cabango out on loan

If Ben goes, good luck to him. He's too good for this club as it's being run currently.

Forest thoroughly deserved that.

Another Cooper masterclass
What's that Forest was doing? Passing the ball forward and trying to get into the opposition half? That'll never catch on.

Re: Pato extended.

He does blow hot and cold but replacing him with an attacking midfielder who will improve on 8 goals and 4 assists in half a season would normally be way out of our price range. I don't think anyone thinks he should be replaced completely, just pulled when not having a good game. When he's going to...

Re: A defensive shambles.

The defense is playing under instruction, if they don't obey they are dropped. Now, let's talk about the daft buggar who is giving the instructions. It's easy to see the defenders don't enjoy playing this way. Would any defenders?

Re: Pato extended.

Good news, am I being a bit harsh by thinking we need better in that position? Very inconsistent imo, has games where he looks unplayable then others where he is invisible. Should have competition for his place. You are exactly right, but when he's having an invisible game shouldn't he be pulled? D...

Re: U23 developing

RM is trying to adapt players to a style that he would like when the common sense thing to do is to use a style that would suit the players we have, like anyone with an ounce of common sense would do.

Re: Ethan Laird being recalled by Man Utd

Let's be honest people. Is it any surprise? What's he going to learn in that circus that we laughingly call our defense? Personally, I'd change the ringmaster. If the likes of Liverpool and Man.U don't think we're good enough for their young players to learn from, I think we need to sit up and take ...

Re: Russell Martin is going nowhere

I think we have the players to be further up the table than we are, but to win you have to score more goals than the other side. Stating the obvious I know. The reason we don't do that is that we are more interested in playing in and around our own penalty area, giving the ball away,,, and conceding...

Re: Possession Football

Possession is not as important as what you do with it. We had possession last Saturday on the edge of the M'boro penalty area, and we still had possession when we passed it back to our keeper. Total achievement? Nil.

Re: Obafemi

Shows how poor we have been today doesn't it? Pathetic,passing for passing sake most of the time. Stats will be up though eh? It seems that the number of passes we make is more important than the number of goals we score. After we went one down there was absolutely no urgency to get one back, they'...
