RL's comments post match, stating that he wanted to keep numbers up front & occupy their defenders / make it difficult to play from the back. Is a complete shift change from our recent managers. Refreshing !
I lost patience with Sinclair some time ago sadly. There's not many games where I can recall him having many touches of the ball, never mind influence games as we'd have expected. Described as a "moments" player. Well, those moments are too few and far between
A good move for all parties. Hopefully he can recapture the form & confidence that he had early in his PNE career playing alongside Ben Davies. That seemed to dip following his exclusion from the starting eleven on the arrival of Pat Bauer. I dont think this necessarily signals the end of his...
We can only speculate but I'd expect the likes of Maguire, Harrop, Hunts, Rafferty, Olosunde & obviously Storey to be pretty nervous. I'd also expect that RL will have let them know. It's also pretty obvious now that both wing back positions are a top priority
It was YOU that referred to him as 34 years old in the first place. We all know that the squad will need addressing, so give it a rest. You bemoan the 1st half but fail to give credit to Sheffield United who got it tactically spot on & alongside Stoke were on of the better footballing sides to...
100% THIS. Moments change games and that tackle by Whiteman woke the crowd & the team up. I also think it had an effect on Sheffield United, who thought they were going to stroll it from that point. From that moment on the seemingly impossible became a possibility & every credit to RL and the...
Yes you could refer to Ched Evans as a 34 year old ex convict. Alternatively, you could refer to him as a striker who plays every game like its his last, puts a herculean shift in for the team with a good degree of ability & skill thrown in. It's interesting that you chose to use the former
I just cant see how anyone can say Barky isnt a wingback, especially the way RL wants to play them. He seems to have the attributes for me, good engine, good pace & can deliver a good cross. Definitely worth a shot there this season. If it doesnt work out, he can go
A real shame this one you have got to feel sympathy for the lad. Let's face it, if he didnt have such a horrendous injury record he probably wouldnt have entertained coming to us. I do really hope he finds a happy path in life
