    [Albion] Carlos Baleba

    We should stick with starting him in the Prem from here in. Unlikely we’ll qualify for Europe, so just develop him.

    [Albion] Pervis Estupiñán - SIGNED - 5 YEAR CONTRACT

    Was genuinely thinking he’d be next out the door for big money. Absolutely no chance based on the way he’s played this season.

    [Albion] Ansu Fati **Signed On Loan 01/09**

    Couldn’t/wouldn’t even take it past a little ginger kid from Worthing in a one on one. How he earns 200k or whatever it is a week is mystifying.

    [Albion] Kaoru Mitoma [27/2/24 - possibly out for the rest of the season]

    Trouble is, it should have been sorted out in January. We’re now out of the FA Cup, looking over our shoulder in the table and worrying about how we’ll score against Roma.

    [Albion] Kaoru Mitoma [27/2/24 - possibly out for the rest of the season]

    RDZball just doesn’t work without proper wingers, does it? Wins against a hopeless Sheffield United, a dismal Palace and a Spurs side who leave themselves wide open to any attacking system. We simply do not create enough without March/Mitoma out wide. And we don’t appear to have the ability to...

    Only positive today.

    [Albion] Julio Enciso - Paraguay’s new wonder kid (Signed 17/06/2022)

    He’s definitely been doing some deadlifting and squatting. Quads and hamstrings look huge!

    [Albion] Ansu Fati **Signed On Loan 01/09**

    There simply has to be more to come from him in terms of star quality. There’s no way he could’ve been surrounded by as much hype as he was (based on actually playing a decent amount of games for Barca), to turn in such average/decent performances. Surely he’s got a Mitoma/Pedro/Enciso style...

    [Albion] Jakub Moder

    This is partly why I think it’s worth pursuing with him as a defensive midfielder in a double pivot. He’s the most physically imposing midfielder we have, can cover lot of ground and looks like he’ll win the majority of his tackles/duels. With some work on his positional play and ability to...

    [Albion] Low Block is our Achilles heel

    Last night we actually had a couple of transition moments in the middle of the pitch where we won the ball/the ball broke kindly to us with Wolves players out of position. The problem was our attacking players failed to exploit it in a way that Mitoma/March/Pedro can do. Too slow travelling...

    [Albion] Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Brighton & Hove Albion *** Official Match Thread ***

    Easier to suss when there’s no decent wide outlet. It’s gonna be a pattern that repeats from here on in.

    [Albion] Kaoru Mitoma [27/2/24 - possibly out for the rest of the season]

    No Mitoma/March, no party. RDZball is so heavily reliant on proper wide players who can beat a man and/or cut inside effectively. Adingra has talent but is just not at either of their levels. The rest of the forward players are not wide players who can do this; they play in the pockets or up...

    [Albion] Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Brighton & Hove Albion *** Official Match Thread ***

    We simply do no create enough clear cut chances without either March or Mitoma out wide. Totally different team.

    [Albion] Jakub Moder

    Thought he did some excellent defensive work tonight. Would be happy to see him in that role again.

    [Albion] Kaoru Mitoma [27/2/24 - possibly out for the rest of the season]

    Ok. How would you set our wide players up for the remainder of the season? And returning to your original point: You think the squad was fully prepared for this, despite our only natural winger options being Mitoma and Adingra? Not about having a queue of wingers. About having one more. If so...

    [Albion] Kaoru Mitoma [27/2/24 - possibly out for the rest of the season]

    De Zerbi players his wingers on the opposite side to their strong foot. Adingra does a job on the right because he’s OK with his left, but it is not his natural position and he isn’t as effective there. He’s far stronger playing wide left. If March was fit, he’d likely be playing second fiddle...

    [Albion] Kaoru Mitoma [27/2/24 - possibly out for the rest of the season]

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but your posts seem to have suggested we didn’t need to sign any wingers. If we had signed a left footed winger, Adingra would now be able take Mitoma’s position (Adingra’s preferred position) and the left footed winger would take Adingra’s. Therefore Mitoma’s injury...

    How many naturally left footed wingers have we had since March got injured?

    [Albion] Julio Enciso - Paraguay’s new wonder kid (Signed 17/06/2022)

    On reflection, my judgment might have been way out after about 15 pints. I don’t even remember posting that comment :lolol:

    Everton looked shit scared of him which is more than can be said of Adingra.
