Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
Looking increasingly likely it'll be Fulham, Hudderfield and Cardiff dropping through the trapdoor.
Who, from them, would you look to get in?

Fulham - Mitrovic only, I suppose. Sessegnon possibly too, but will probably go to Spurs. No one else though.
Huddersfield - That young midfielder Alex Pritchard is pretty good, albeit a bit small. Billing looks decent too.
Cardiff - No one whatsoever.

I don't see how that's a step forward from this year's team. And it's still way too open and lightweight. We're flat track bullies - if the opposition are bad enough we may function.

Imo if that's the team next year, just stick Antonio up front and save £30m+ for the same result.

Fab

Fredericks Diop Balbuena Cresswell

Rice Noble (or new signing)

Anderson Lanzini Yarmalenko

Mitrovic

Great starting 11 !!

It's all based on blind hope not facts, yes. We just don't know what a midfield that hasn't played this season will perform in future. It'd be even more of a job carrying that top-heavy front three AND Lanzini as well - probably suicidal in terms of defensive cover.

Agree with that. We have better possession in the opposition half, we can build pressure at times. But it's been very sporadic and the fact is that overall we aren't much of a threat. At times we're alarmingly poor in this respect. I think it's worth noting given the guff that comes from the manager about our approach.

You're facts are irrelevant - Arguably our most creative midfielders are lanzini and Yarmalenko who have been out all season.

I am talking about Mitrovic being in our team in the future and lanzini and yarmalemko being fit !

Now that's a decent striker in a midfield with Lanzini, yarm and Anderson in it !!

Opta or whatever the most creative players haven't been in our team all year - next season they might be and with mitrovic in the team with THAT midfield he would be wicked !

next !!

Cheers.

I would disagree with your simple binary on what that means. I think we try to make another pass or beat another man in decent positions too often and they don't come off.

We are trying to play better than we are sometimes, which I think can help in the long run but is frustrating now.

Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
Wouldn't surprise me. We've only scored 3 league goals this year that haven't come from a set piece.

Alex V 1:18 Thu Mar 21
Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
Opta. Although let's call it shots-per-game to avoid games in hand etc.

Where do you get that we are 15th in shots taken?

Stubbo 12:47 Thu Mar 21
Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
Agree with Alex that we tend to create very little in open play, especially against teams that sit deep.

A lot of what we've done lately goals wise has been from set pieces.

No great surprise when we've hardly seen from Lanzini, Nasri and Yarmalenko...in a team trying to play posession football, it's only really Anderson in the side who can pick a true chance creating pass.

Alex V 11:37 Thu Mar 21

Yet we're 15th in shots taken. Either a bunch of our players are literally air-shotting the ball on chances, or we don't create much. It's the latter.

Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?

Oliver Norwood is the player we should be buying as Nobles replacement

-----

Norwood will be 28 next month. We should be looking at top quality 22/23/24 year olds. If you're signing a 28 year old midfielder then they're going to have to be proven class which Norwood is not. Could see the logic if he was 5 years younger maybe.

NewtonsPartyBag 9:38 Thu Mar 21
Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
Sessegnon is the only player in the bottom 3 at the moment that could improve us.

The rest can whistle, were supposed to be a team looking to progress ffs

brick_lane_batty_boy 9:33 Thu Mar 21
Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
If there's a part of the field we have good cover in - it's that position behind the front man - Anderson, Lanzini and Nasri are all better than Mooy. He started the season well, went off the ball for 6months and now has had a couple of good games.

Avoid

Oliver Norwood is the player we should be buying as Nobles replacement

"Our midfield hasn't created much"



Absolute horse shit.


Anderson is top 8 in the chances created table, and we have been without our most creative midfielder since last June.

Don't see why everyone wets themselves about Mooy, he is fucking ordinary

Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
At the weekend I read through a couple of Huddersfield fan forums and Billing received a right slating. He was called ‘lazy, useless’ and numerous other impolite adjectives:

“Will be glad to see the back of him, nowhere near as good as he thinks he is and we'll be lucky to get 10 million for him. If you start gobbing off in the papers then you need to back it up on the pitch. He hasn't done and has gone missing since the going got tough.”

“Flatters to deceive, looks languid and lazy at times, shows flashes of talent, but without any consistency, and is the type of player you want on the bench (as opposed to anywhere near the team) when the going gets tough!!”

“The frustration with billing is imho down to the fact he has real talent.....but doesn't concentrate long enough or work hard enough.”

“He's been shit recently, not gonna deny that.”

“I like Phil but he was lethargic and crap today, given up, wants to be elsewhere.”

“I hate this kind of footballer. Lazy, ill-disciplined, spoiled. Head has gone down at the wrong time...the mark not of a man but a bottler.
Application and no talent can succeed. Talent without application never succeeds.
Big time Charlie.”

There are many others but I can’t be asked to cut and paste any others.

On the basis of that, it’s a no from me.

Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
Aaron Mooy all day long. Looks frustrated at the lack of quality around him. Would improve our midfield. Carries on the recent tradition of signing antipodeans, too. Can't have too many skippies and kiwis, I reckon.

Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
I Imagine we could get Mitrovic for significantly cheaper than Jiminez will be costing Wolves and yet he's 3 years younger,

maverick 2:25 Wed Mar 20

Our midfield hasn't created much, so I can't agree with that. Mitrovic is very decent imo and would do a job, but for the amount we'd have to pay to get him he doesn't hit the target enough for me. No value there.

maverick 2:25 Wed Mar 20
Re: Anyone from the soon-to-be relegated clubs worth getting?
With our midfield Mitrovic is 100% a 20 goal a season striker!

I would take Mitrovic over every striker we've been linked with thus far.
