this defeat was so obviously coming.
we arent good enough for top 4 by a long way & we will do really well to get that 6th spot with this team.
im suprised from our starting 11 people thought we even had a sniff of getting a draw.
we could easily be in the bottom half in a few wks so im just hoping we regroup, make 3 or 4 changes in january & secure 6th spot.
then build from there.
out- corluka, jenas or hudd, pav
in- muntari,parker, a good right bk who isnt as slow as a camel.
this wasnt just 1 off bad performance like some of u wil say.
we lack the quality & squad depth to even challenge for 4th.
I really disagree with you regarding Corluka Sb, I know you don't rate him but I think he comes in for a lot of undeserved flak. he has made a few mistakes, but not many to be honest - and considering the shower of poo that was yesterdays game I think he (and Gomez) were one of the few bright spotys - I remember him making a few good challanges that, if he hadn't, would have cost us. He isn't the fastest, granted, but I think he is good enough for the team. In mym opinion we should be bringing Kyle naughton through in this position bu giving him a few more games. From what I've seen of him he looks good, and he has the pace.
Hudd - I would like us to keep him, but not as a starter. As I said, if Modric is going to be on the left, we need to buy another centre mid, a world class palyer, then Hudd would drop to the bench. I think he can bring something different with his passing.
Jenas and Pav - agreed. I really wanted Pav to work out as I think he has talent but after seeing him yesterday I think we need to sell him for as much as we can.
What are people thoughts on Bently? After a shaky start, where he really should have been off, I didn't think he did too badly. Not amazing but then who was? I'd like to give him another shot to be honest, but as cover for Lennon.
Personally, if we can recover from this, getr a bit of fortune with injuries, buy well in January then I think we could finish 5th. But when Harry buys, for me, he has to look at cntre or left mid before anywhere else. Then we can stop playing Keane in this roaming role, get him up front where he's most dangerous and start seeing the performances from him we are used too.
