  1. Couldn't agree more. Smith seems very naive in his approach sometimes and there are times we need to be a bit more pragmatic and not play into the hands of the likes of Leeds and Southampton. The one player who Smith did drop was probably one of the last players I would have left out and while far too early to judge Traore really doesn't feel me with confidence. McGinn and Barkley were really poor and I can't understand why at the very least Smith wont make subs, Hourihane was bang in form before dropped and has something to offer from the bench. Watkins has seemed way off the
  2. Weird season and I think Leeds will do that to a few teams better then us while they will then struggle against much lesser teams. It's just the way they are and maybe we got carried away. However, we never came close to matching their intensity and we didn't change anything when things clearly weren't happening for us. Barkley wasn't fit and Smith alluded to it after Leicester yet he stayed on for the entire match which I can't understand. On another day Grealish would have put that chance away but he over did it like he did on much of his play tonight and we were unlucky with A
  3. Such a pleasing victory. We showed real steel and grit in that match. I thought we were a bit slow to get going but understandable with many players coming back from internationals. Trezeguet was outstanding, I've never seen such improvement in a player. Konsa was Mr Reliable, Grealsih brilliant as ever and what a difference having a calm and reliable keeper makes. On a side note I wonder if anyone saw MOTD2, what a shoddy and lazy 30 seconds of analysis. Wouldn't expect any better from Murphy who has always viewed us with utter contempt.
  4. Yeah ultimately the players let us all down yesterday. Agree regarding El Ghazi , I think there was talk of Olympiacos a few weeks back. The worry is as things there is no way he wont be playing a decent amount of games with injuries, suspensions and the quick turnaround of games. He's started the season poor in contrast to Trez who looks much improved so far though he does have his moments of class.
  5. Really disappointed in some of the players and that we went out. However I entirely support Smith having made so many changes, you could argue that's it's crazy that this competition is even going ahead this year and ultimately we have to focus our efforts on our strong league start as nice and potentially achievable as the cup was. There was nothing in that performance from Traore to suggest he is ready to start in the league and you do worry about some of our backup but realistically players like Lansbury and Jota know they have no place really and we would sell them at the first
  6. Very interesting to see who plays in certain positions alrite with Liverpool on Sunday. Confident we can win this with changes to the team. I'm sure we'll see Ramsay again and players like Traore getting some more minutes.
  7. Really impressed with this signing . I don't think we would could really bring in a higher caliber player then this. Midfield looks really strong and I can't wait to see him in action.
  8. Huge 3 points, was told before we've lost our last 5 games there. Agree with everything here. Thought Watkins worked so hard and got himself into the right positions, never sulks and not afraid of a physical battle. The goals will come if he keeps it up. Trez looks to have worked hard and has started the season really well in fairness to him. Targett still a bit rash and a worry. On the opposite side though I really like the look of Cash, no nonsense from him. Konsa deserves a mention and looks to be improving with every game and delighted to see Ramsay get some time.
  9. Made hard work of it it but a win is a win. Delighted with that start. The penalty save was outstanding from Martinez and he looked very solid. Great debut. Targett still worries me at left back but overall a very good start.
  10. There comes a point when you have to stand firm and try and progress as a club and keep your best players, delighted with the ambition shown by the club. We must make some progress this season and not got involved in any relegation battle, really excited for the season to kick off. Everything is here for us as a club to go on and progress
  11. We seem to be really struggling to get deals done though I do accept it's a very unique transfer window. Hopefully a big few days ahead this week.
  12. Quite possible given the current situation. Celtic have scouted some serious talent over the years. I have no doubt Edouard is more then good enough.
  13. Edouard is the real deal from what I've seen from him, whether we could get him I'm not sure but would certainly love to see it happen.
  14. Time to keep things steady, no major changes. We have the spine of a good team and good character as demonstrated. 4 or 5 good signings in the right areas and I think we will be fine next season. Smith deserves full support next season and Suso leaving would appear to be a nod the recruitment wasn't quite up to scratch like the glaring deficiency we were left with upfront. I think the break showed we shouldn't write some of these players off. Luiz and Konsa were much improved and a player like Wesley may still prove a good player. Big problems were addressed over the break,
