I would bring in Cooper for penn, stick with Anita as thought he was ok. Veiria for O'kane and saiz for either Dallas or Ekuban. I wish we would have gone out and bought Bryant and flint, thought they looked a good pair. Nice back line of ailing, flint, jansson and Bryant? Never mind.


1.) 20 Feb 2018 00:03:52
No more Cooper. Ever. Mistake. Give Pearce a go.

2.) 20 Feb 2018 04:57:38
Yes on both points GIW

3.) 20 Feb 2018 09:46:47
Fully agree Shad, if we chase Flint/Bryant in the summer their price will have jumped significantly. Our famed Recruiter should act quickly. If we spot anyone and the news gets out, you can bet the big boys will come sniffing around. Again, putting the price up.

We should have got them last summer when it was well known the pair where on the radar. Just wouldn't pay the £3m for flint and £2m for Bryan and they were British. Now both are worth double. 🙄🙄

5.) 21 Feb 2018 20:32:39
Battymatty we will buy them at the end of the 5 year plan

It would have been lucky to take all 3 points but to concede that late hurts and needed the win to have any chance of playoffs. Massive positive having saiz back, he did more in 35 mins than roofe done in his last 5 games. Roofe is terrible and sub at best, saiz's linking of midfield to attack is fantastic, he wants the ball and makes things happen. As someone stated, he seems to make alioski better as well as the team. Also think lassoga improved and his goal ratio good now. I understand PH wanting to save saiz to make impact and it nearly paid off, but I would have preferred Ekuban over roofe. De Bock looks crap defending and Felix has no presence, he caused 2nd goal. He should have been out to collect the lobbed ball and instead it gets headed out and the score from corner. I think now that playoffs gone and need to look at next season, drop de Bock and play young LB (? pearce) . Maybe try Bailey PF in goal to see if he can be a first choice, or do we need a new GK.


1.) 22 Feb 2018 06:53:06
To be fair roofe never plays the same position two games in a row

2.) 22 Feb 2018 07:41:38
Roofe has had plenty of opportunities and continues to squander them. Played in a number of positions across the front line because no-one, including him, knows his best position



19 Feb 2018 07:22:33
Thought we started ok but their goal stopped our good work in first 8 mins, poor goal keeping and again defense didn't react. Unsure why O'kane in before vieira, is he still not fully fit? The positives are the 2nd half, showed some fight and fitness which is a plus. Forshaw, Pontus and Pablo were good and I do like the work Ekuban puts in, he just needs a goal. Let's hope saiz is raring to go, how we have missed his creativity




14 Feb 2018 20:48:29
Disappointing news about Roberts, I was looking forward to seeing him play. I just hope now that Ekuban gets a run in the team, barring no injuries. He looked a decent player, has pace, holds the ball well and works hard. I think if he gets a goal quickly he will do well, let's hope. Drop roofe and play lassoga and Ekuban together. Get lassoga winning the headers and Ekuban running on, could be good.


1.) 14 Feb 2018 23:03:11
Lassoga can't jump.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 15:22:38
White Men can't Jump - Wesley Snipes told us that back in the 90's



10 Feb 2018 21:51:10
For the first goal, Cross shouldn't have been allowed, then 3 defenders around sharp and not one tight on him and then Dallas ducks out of the way. It was a great strike but have to defend that play much better. O'kane, phillips, alioski and roofe were terrible and not helping at all.

On a positive note, lassoga goal was well taken and he did play better today, also think 2 CB's good and could form long partnership. Forshaw looks good and I think he needs to be with vieira (if fit) and will then have stronger midfield. Need saiz back big time, how we have missed his creativity and hoping Tyler and eukuban can make a difference.


1.) 11 Feb 2018 11:03:46
A fair assessment Shadwell. Let's see if PH can get some improvement into the side and pick up a win next week and steady the ship. If we finish top ten or higher after being in freefall recently there might be something to build on for next season.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 11:04:14
Positive we scored.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 11:05:11
Poor from Roofe and De Bock to allow the cross to be made, a poor misdirected header by O'Kane and lack of reaction to the loose ball. My fear would be that with our brittle confidence we would capitulate, however we didn't. We slowly got a foothold in the game without threatening the opponents goal in the first half. In the second we got more support to Lasogga and seemed to be more confident in possession.

Our ability to shoot ourself in our own foot still applies with O'Kane summing up a poor performance by making a mistimed challenge and conceding a penalty. Positives being that 4-3-3 made us look more solid however we still lack the players to support Forshaw in the formation. I was pleased to see us play with aggression to win the ball back higher up the pitch and we were more direct with our play however to benefit from direct play needs another striker up with Lassoga to run the channels because he struggles to do so. Just got to stop making so many individual errors



06 Feb 2018 22:26:51
Ok, so we have a new manager, he wasn't first choice for a lot of us. Guess now we get onboard and hope he can bring that new manager positive push, tough few games though and depleted squad. Soon we will have our main players back and can try push for a playoff place? Big question is if AR will invest in the summer, think we spent about 8-10 mil recently but took in over 20 mil, so needs to be reinvested. The rewards for getting into premiership are enormous and lufc need to be there, just look at the crowds we achieve. Bring on Saturday MOT

I think we should recall Ideguchi, he only used as a sub in a lower league team, he needs game time. Be good for PH to look and work with him for rest of season, to see if he the future. If he is that good, we could have a great midfield with Forshaw, Vierra, saiz. Then need a GK, CB, quality winger and maybe a big price striker and let lassoga go?

I guess the last minute of 2nd half. He supposed to be a great player and going to World Cup. Cultural lost the game and if not needed send him to us, could be a great 3 in midfield with Forshaw, Viera and him?

Didn’t we get about 25 mil for woods, Taylor and Bridcutt. Think we only spent about 6-8 mil on in comings. I think silver would be a great coach, but like u said, buying is down to Orta?
