    This ones mine, I'm so so so sorry Big Jurg!

    Ali's all Icy's work.

    I still reckon one of us will be very right and t'other nearly right, which is plenty good enough for me irrespective which way that's sliced.

      @Stat Brother will deny everything

      Locadia (who I have no hope for), was our best player yesterday.

      But AJ (who I believe could turn it round), was poor......

      He actually scuffed that and should have done better (sorry Icy).

      Was the pick of our players as I said, but whilst it was positive he took it early and got a degree of direction on it, anything firmer/cleaner probably would have gone in.

      Completely with you on this, we’ve been saying exactly the same when he’s played. Some of his passes and positioning/movement off the ball are excellent - problem last season is that everything slowed down around him, and sometimes his thinking appeared too quick for the others. I’ll happily stand against the wall with you when the flaming starts if he doesn’t look like a completely different player in a fluid attacking environment with other players more on his wavelength. We already know he looks like a bloody good finisher when given the chance.
      Spot on. I've seen a few times where he's opened up a defence with a first time pass or a quick layoff. His team mates haven't always been expecting it.

      The problem is that for every good bit of play is balanced by him tripping over the ball or miss controlling and some people only seem to remember the bad bits.

      I agree but also recognise that there have been quite a few bad bits so the criticism to date hasn't been unwarranted.

      Hopefully the change in management and tactics will allow him to perform to his best. I certainly hope so.

      I’m here to be bounced...faster footballing brain than most of the side. Watch out for perfectly timed quick and simple passes when we attack and he is closed down. Locadia is a much much better player than so many give him credit for and we’ll see the player we paid so much for flourish this season.

      I guess what I’m saying is that I totally disagree with you regarding his decision making.
      Well, I think a few of our players will look like new signings when directed to play attacking football. Propper in an more advanced role, Jurgs needs those through balls and I personally believe Propper has the vision to provide those balls. Get Ali and Trossard on the wings and told to get up more may produce more goals.

      Sadly for him and Ali in many posters eyes they will forever be consigned to the 'get rid' section of the squad, in the team they support.

      It really doesn't matter what either of them do from this point onwards.
      I’d like to think it’s not as black and white as that. I’m very much in the ‘Locadia in’ camp, he’s got some good attributes, Alireza* on the other hand, well, I won’t bother typing it again.


      *I will be delighted, of course, if he does actually turn into a player rather than an Instagram personality.
      What?

      I'd say Jurgen has shown more in brief flashes than Ali J - who seems to glide around the pitch without influencing much at all. The goals Jurgen did score in his brief cameos and/or the shifts he put in on occasion up top away from home up against 6-7 top defenders on his own.. suggest to me, that maybe (with a more stretched opponent) he could create and score more goals at this level. His level of effort/desire will determine his success or otherwise, in this next and his last chance season for me... I still have my doubts, but less so than with Ali J.

      At first he (Ali J) looked slightly off the pace but classy, and I was sure he'd explode into form... it just never happened, and (alas) he remains off the pace and I just can't see that changing It's a shame, but some signings just don't work out. Don't get me wrong, he can play a great cross field pass, but as a winger he's kind of impotent.

      Could we do a deal and swap him for an Oil Tanker ? at least the Tanker would have a turn of speed and be manoeuvrable ?
