    Wrong Team Selection


    4 Not allowed!
    Today’s match was a almost a “Free Hit”. We now have a stronger squad and are in a better league position.

    I was surprised to see DS in the team. I appreciate it was his 1st game back in a few weeks, but he was way off the pace today. He plays sideways or backwards. It’s as if he is not allowed to break into the oppositions half! Every time he gets close to an opposition player he seems to give a free kick away. Let’s remember he got his ban for the challenge at Cardiff, which was all down to his poor touch in the initial challenge.

    Up front we had Muzza who we all love but we do know his strengths & weaknesses. He can’t be running Doggy’s & with PG in behind him, he has no one who can get on to any flick ons or make a forward run from midfield. I felt he was Mugged off today due to the team selection. At least give him a chance to play to his strengths. YB does at least offer this. Why not start with FA who has done well, knowing you have the back up of Muzza. There CB’s had an easy 60mins against him today.

    Let’s summarise league fixtures-

    Chelsea H- CH wrong selection, only got competitive when changes made after 60 mins, when already 2 down. A training game for the opposition for 60mins.

    Burnley A- A better away performance, should of got a point.

    Palace H- Great effort by the 10 men, to get a Legendary win.

    Hudds A- Good win albeit against 10 men.

    Leics H- 2 points dropped due to negative tactics.

    Cardiff A- Unlucky to not get a point due to DS poor decision making.

    Everton A- Beaten fair & Square by a better team.

    Wolves H- Lucky 3 PTS.

    Newcastle A- Gritty deserved away win.

    West Ham H- Lucky 3 PTS.

    Man City- Fair result.

    Spurs H- Far to Passive from the start, should of got about them. They weren’t in good shape with a Rookie keeper who we never put under any pressure.

    Saints A- Terrible start played for 2nd half & scrambled a point.

    Fulham H- Slack defending, missed Pen, good character to come from behind 2 PTS dropped.

    Liverpool A- A fair performance without really threatening with an error from a young player gifts them a goal. No damage done.

    Man U H- Thoroughly deserved win with 3 1st half goals scored, tells its own story. A fast start taking it to the opposition.

    Watford A- Total No show.

    Recently with YB, FA, MM & Bernardo the performances have been a lot better. Why today go back to the old guard ? It’s as if CH thinks we aren’t expected to get anything so let’s give them minutes on the pitch.

    2 down after 33 mins when clearly not making any impression on them, why not send out the 4 attacking players on the bench to warm up before HT. At least to give a few of the onfield players a kick up the breadcrumb.

    No subs at HT.

    No improvement in performance until 60 mins when first change was made.

    Chris not having a Pop but reading of the above does tell a bit of a story.

    We need Pace & Energy to be competitive in every match. Please be positive in team selection away at Bmuff. Happy Xmas to you all X

      Out of interest, how many posts should someone have before they can post something we should read?

      At a guess, roughly 3,757.

      As soon add I saw the team sheet, why Murray and Stephens and not Andone and Bissouma? End of thread as they proved why they should have started.
      Edit, Murray against Chelsea...

      I don't think there's such a thing as a "free hit" in Hughton's view. Every match has the possibility of wrecking our goal difference so we start by looking to contain against the bigger clubs and take it from there.
      Albion and Rhinos forever.

      A tale of two teams, one with Murray and one without. We're better without. I love Glenn Murray and always have, but the fact is we beat Palace because Andone's qualities were ideally suited to the situation and if we'd stolen a draw today it would have been because the team functioned better with the qualities of Andone. Glenn is a quality player, and a class act. But him being in the team makes us totally different to the side we are with Andone starting and I have to be honest, I prefer the team with Andone in it.

      I think Hughton got it wrong today.
