I would add if we were to move on 10 I would only replace them with 5 or 6 at the most. Plainly this will not happen in January but a start could be made by moving Rosenberg and Ridgewell on and getting a better left back in.

38 points in 38 games enough said really, i reckon it will be a tipping point in as much that if we get beat i guarantee most of the local phone ins and social media will be saying its about time Clarke went, fans are fickle mate and if we get beat Saturday you watch a lot turn who are currently sitting on the fence
It's simply a matter of cause and effect. When we hoof it to Long the consequence is that the midfield players don't receive the ball in situations where they can do much with it. Compare the Sessegnon of the game against United at Old Trafford and compare him in a game where he is straining his neck watching the ball fly around over his head all over the pitch and hardly touching it. What is Sess and the others supposed to do? Grow 10 foot necks to pick the ball out of the air?
Is it ridiculous because you don't agree with it? I suspect so. The common denominator when we play hoof ball is invariably a Republic of Ireland centre forward we acquired from Reading.
Morrison had a poor game but he is an accomplished Premier League midfielder and a vital member of the squad.
Sess is better than Mozza, but we need to stop the hopeless hoofing to Long. We don't have a better attack than Berahino, Sess, Amfi and a top forward who can control the ball on the deck and bring in the other midfielders into the game. Long isn't that player and never will be. Long is the problem, not Sess.
How many good players are we going to ruin just to fit in Shane Long?
Morrison for me is back up to Sess and nothing else, we've seen in the pitiful Fulham debacle at home last season and now against Newcastle that Mozza is no cover for Yacob.
Poorly written article with no foundation behind it at all in my opinion. Sinclair has been unlucky that he suffered a serious hamstring injury that has kept him out for so long after only just starting to get his match fitness back after a year of wasting away at City. If we are careful with him and bring him back slowly to build him up he could be a big player for us in the second half of the season, if a permanent deal isn't already a foregone conclusion a decision will be made much later in the season.
Id predict we were the first English club, if not definitely the first outside the top 4, who drafted in the continental style of having a 'Head Coach' and 'Director of Football / Technical Director' and making it work.
Does anyone know of any clubs that did this before us?
