I can't believe some people are still picking McClean.

I will never hammer him because he always gives 100% and you can't ask anymore than that, but he's nowhere near a Premier League footballer.

I'd sooner start Burke as the second striker than out on the wing. Sure he has the pace to run out wide but I don't believe he has good crosses/passes in him. Run him forward linking with Rondon.

Did you not see the crosses he put in against Stoke and Man United, both of which we should have scored from?

The lad has a shocking first touch and his decision making leaves a lot to be desired, but he can't offer any less than Phillips of late. Though in fairness to Phillips he did at least stand a ball up to McClean on Saturday to make it 1-0 to us and probably leave a completely different complexion on things.

Don't disagree mate but just couldn't pick Gibbs after Saturday. I sit in line with the 18 yard box and he constantly watches the ball go over his head. He's like one of them penguins on the Falklands that tumble over watching the planes fly over!
McLean is, as you say, technically poor, but we need some fighters out there now, players with a point to prove, not flicking through the Panini album seeing which Premier team they fancy playing for next year.

Games aren't usually called off in the Prem due to snow on the pitch as all clubs have undersoil heating and covers to keep the snow/ice off. Games are usually called off because of crowd safety issues, slippy roads, people slipping on icy steps inside the ground that kind of thing.

Oh! Thank you for pointing that out  ::)

But I would ask, what point is McClean going to prove exactly? That he can stick it over the bar again from five yards out with the goal gaping?

Comfortable 3-1 win to Watford.

Deeney will be up for this, he bullied Hegazi earlier this season, expect more of the same with him also roughing up a half arsed Jonny Evans.

Their midfield will overpower and out run ours (as most other teams do) with Barry plodding around doing his best to avoid any contact with the ball where possible.

I am away for the weekend, will no doubt check my phone for the score but as the players have give up, i wont be going out my way either! (Sadly i know come 3pm saturday i will be trying to watch it somewhere though!)

I see we have sold out, hope the fans sing songs for the likes of Brunty, Dawson, Gmac, Yacob, Foster (maybe one or two others) let them know their efforts are appreciated.

As for the other wasters, if they dont bother trying (minimum requirement) then i hope they get booed, can accept if somebody isnt good enough but trying, its not their fault, if they dont even try, they deserve all the stick they get.

Want to see:

                       Foster

Dawson     Hegazi     GMac     Gibbs

                        Yacob

Burke     Field          Brunt      McClean

                       Rondon


We need Brunt to start for his set piece deliveries and as captain. A higher midfield line with Yacob staying back to help out in defence. Give Burke (pace) and Field a run. Drop Evans and Barry.


What we'll get:

                       Foster

Dawson     Hegazi     Evans (c)     Gibbs

Phillips     Barry        Greg        McClean

                JRod      Rondon

Yawwwwnnnn.

He's constantly taunted by fans, so always plays like he has a point to prove.
As I said, he's a poor player, but so are the alternatives, at least he tries. Phillips could certainly give him a run for his money in the sticking it over the bar stakes!
Ideally I would put Brunt on the left of a 5 but that would mean retaining the awful Gibbs.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Why would it? If you played 3-5-2 you could play Brunt at wing back and leave Gibbs out.

I disagree about Greg. There is no doubt that he has skill, and some of his through balls have dropped on a sixpence, but I think he has been dragged down to our Sunday League level.......however, on Saturday I will agree that he was bobbins, like most of the team except Brunt and Foster.
What have we done?
And what have we become

Wouldn't be adverse to that.

I would mind trying Gibbs outside on left in attack not defence.these moves are worth trying.

there's a big Wetherspoons in the centre about a 10 minute walk from the station...think it's called moon under water that is usually popular.

thank you, I hesitantly put Rodriguez out wide even though he hasn't been too effective there but there aren't better options to play on the wing. Even if you wanted to start Rodriguez up front instead of Rondon you'd need to start McClean on the left instead and I'd rather not do that.

Qu, If Gibbs is considerably shorter than the other 3 in the back line, but has to keep the line set by the 2 CH's, its not surprising that the ball clears him is it?
Should he drop back and play the oppo on side?

Supplementary qu, is this why TP was obsessed with tall fullbacks?

My first time to Watford, what pubs are you guys going to go in before the game?

The Odd Fellows was popular with Albion fans last season. About 200 yards from away end.
