As bad a first half as I can recall :- (

Dire, if we loss this Smith needs to go - I've resisted calling for his head but that is absolutely shocking!

I'm expecting blood n thunder from this side I want a response whether we get I'm not sure, utv.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mate you might be expecting it, we ain't doing that well so far at half time. Brighton look a lot sharper than us.

18 Jan 2020 14:23:24
Nice to see Taylor has been completely dropped makes me a very happy man! Now just to get rid of elmohammed and Connor.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2020 14:53:31
Tom with you mate, he shouldn't be anywhere nearthe squad, however like a bad penny unfortunately he keeps turning up. Of course all our failings aren't down to one man, however as Dave says everything breaks down when he has the ball and saps the confidence of those around him.
It's bloody cold at the seaside hope the team warms us fans up.

18 Jan 2020 15:53:25
Agreed he’s actually a really nice guy, however he’s not a very good player at this level! I’m watching this game at the moment and can’t see what our game plan is? Big kick up top hopefully something happens? Jack did well to create that chance but he has to be hitting the target? El gazi has to score or at least make the keeper work. Our defenders don’t seem to want to go to the ball to make a tackle, something needs to change in this game honestly I can’t see us getting anything from this! Prove me wrong boys UTV.

The way things are going with the Samatta signing and knowing how poor our transfer dealings have been it wouldn't be a surprise if he is not available for Tuesday. He was in Birmingham Friday, why didn't he have his medical then. Media is saying the deal is close, I thought he deal was close on Wednesday yet here we are Saturday pm and still uncertainty. I agree with the comments about our sporting director he really hasn't achieved what we would have hoped and being critical what has he really done. The owners are successful business men and if (big if) we survive I think they will still get rid of both Smith and Suso to save us getting in the same position next year.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2020 12:23:24
He can do sod all without a work permit.
Look at Luiz.
Deal was done took nearly a week to get the work permit in place.

18 Jan 2020 11:03:32
Does any1 think we should change and get rid of director of football and our scouts and pay to get proper good scouts who have found good players and have a reasonable success rate at finding players, like surely you would think we would have scouts based in France looking at players that's a hot place where good players have come from, also Italy and Spain, also, south America, wot are our scouts doing it's a joke and surely it's got to change why not get ex managers or players, to scout players ie reddknapp, petrov, angel, laursen, also collymore to scout UK talent, something's got too change massively thank God we got 2good owners.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2020 12:27:52
It's not the scout's, it's the players. Think of it this way:

You're working for a company and another thinks your fantastic, however this company is on the verge of administration meaning you could be redundant in 6 months. Do you go or do you stick where you are and pick up a guaranteed wage?

These mid season windows are ideal for players that are on the verge of an International team especially this season, get game time in to get a call up.
Another time a player would just do a Richards and sit and pick up a wage.

18 Jan 2020 07:45:15
Well it's d day to day fail to win and we are down in my view deano must also be sacked aswell, because how can u leave it this late without 2strikers, I really hope we win today but can't see it, if we loose aswell we might aswell tell jck he can go if we get the right price because it won't be fair on him when he can play easily for any side, these nxt 3 games are like 3 cup finals forget the semi final these games are massive, we need an outlet today aswell I've herd people say on here play Konsa upfront or hause that's a good idea I'd play kosa, up top with grealish , at least try something.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jan 2020 09:40:06
Don't think it's win or bust, we still have time to get out of trouble but totally agree, if we lose today it may be time for Dean to be relieved of his duties. I've called for back or sack him and we are oddly in this middle ground of that currently - Perhaps the club are waiting until after Brighton and Watford game to make a decision?

18 Jan 2020 10:22:42
Agree smith must go if we loose I never wanted him either but he did a half decent job last season proved not fit for premier league though and let's face it he done that well at lower leagues if he was any good someone would have taken him sooner than we did. he's out of depth and signings if they are his have been poor on the whole.

17 Jan 2020 18:31:35
Whoops touched the send button. Anyway Blackburn had a striker crisis similar to our own. Trevor Francis was their manager at the time, and he decided to try Warhurst up front. It proved to be an incredible success, Warhurst went on to score 12 goals in as many games, he also scored some valuable goals in the cup games.
It's probably a long shot, but might be worth a try.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2020 19:07:06
Yes I do Mark, watched him at VP playing for Sheffield Wednesday, he became very dangerous for a while, and scored some cracking goals.
Good shout mate.

17 Jan 2020 19:16:26
What's the old saying, ' necessity is the mother of intervention '

17 Jan 2020 19:21:34
Sorry Dave, you're right it was Sheffield Wednesday, don't know why I thought it was Blackburn, must be my age.

17 Jan 2020 19:53:12
Don`t talk about age mark, had a Birthday 2 days ago, Wed 15th.
Lets put it this way, I don`t get train sets or cowboy outfits anymore. hahaha.

18 Jan 2020 10:02:35
Worth a shot Mark but I think Warhurst is too old and slow now. Probably better to use one of our current centre backs in that role.

18 Jan 2020 11:11:40
Absolutely Charlie. Unfortunately my post is in 2 parts as I accidentally pressed the send button half way through. You will see that I suggested either Hause or Konsa in the hope that one of them might achieve something similar to Warhurst.

18 Jan 2020 13:34:55
Charlie, not sure if your last post is a wind up mate, or are you for real.
If you are for real, you need to read the thread properly mate because you are 27 years out.
If it is a wind up, all is forgiven hahaha.

18 Jan 2020 16:07:54

I am surprised anyone would think I was serious about Warhurst. I think we should seriously consider bringing Dion Dublin back though 😀.

17 Jan 2020 18:24:09
Just a crazy thought, if we've no strikers for the Brighton game, why don't we try putting one of our young defenders up front. Either Hause or Konza for example both strong, good in the air, possibly good at holding the ball up for our midfielders.
Does anybody remember Paul Warhurst of Blackburn Rovers back in the early 1990s, he was a central defender at the time.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2020 07:44:05
So let me get this straight we had 2 strikers in kodja and wesley but needed a 3rd in jan now we have none and only buying 1 un tested in premier league who will take time to adapt and don't have the best scoring record? Where is the sense in that we are rotten at high level decisions there.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Jan 2020 11:30:56
It certainly seems that way DJ, unfortunately stating the obvious who would want to join a sinking ship, so it's going to be extremely difficult getting any player good enough to save us.

17 Jan 2020 14:10:06
Smith has gone on record as saying we want at least two, so wouldn't panic and assume we're only getting one in just yet mate.
Agree it's frustrating that its proving hard to get a proven striker in, but we have to be realistic. and that includes referring to ourselves as a 'sinking ship'. Yes, we're not in form and we're struggling up front at the moment. but're we're a newly promoted team only a few wins of mid table in Jan. So let's just keep selling Villa Park out and be the 12th man rather than be too negative just yet.
I remember last season people wrote us off too early and they probably felt a bit daft at the end. Don't get too high when we win or too low when we lose.

17 Jan 2020 14:32:43
Good sensible post DJC, and yes it is frustrating and disappointing.

17 Jan 2020 16:17:28
DJ no point sugar coating it, we are nearer being relegated than a mid table team. We are fighting for our premier survival and are we fighting on the field, not seeing much of that, are we fighting on the transfer front, probably, but without success. We have known for a few weeks we need something upfront, definitely before the Brighton game, still nothing. My big fear is too little too late. We are kidding ourselves if anyone thinks it could be alright. None of us want us to go down however I am seeing absolutely nothing that can put a positive spin on things. I hope Deano has read the riot act after Sunday and let's see how the players react. It still beggars belief that a premier team can go in to successive matches without a recognised striker and expect to get survival points.

16 Jan 2020 18:20:16
Do you play footie manager ed?

{Ed001's Note - used to, many years ago. Ed003 still plays the 98 version, it is the same age as his PC.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2020 19:36:30
Haha 98 version class loads of legends in that game haha.

{Ed001's Note - it was better back then.}
