    reading- another awful performance

    I hear you Jeffall,

    It was a good display and we should have been 2 or 3 up by HT, on another day we may have been punished for wasting that number of opportunities.

    Bale has been creeping in all to often in the last 6 months, I feel that he is far more effective and beeneficial to the team when he stays wide, potentially creating more space for the likes of Dembele, Gylfi and Dempsey, however he did exactly the same under Harries leadership, so maybe he is being instructed to do it?

    Completely agree regarding the bench, IMO we have good depth in the side with options to switch thins about. I would also play Daws over Gallas (despite him playing well), but when Younes is fit, he's a shoo in IMO.

    'Remember we've only lost 1 player and brought in 3 good ones and i'm sure AVB given time can work some MAGIC'

    Jeffall, we have sold/released/loaned 8+ players and brought in 6 very good ones, as well as the players who were loaned out last season, who look as though they may be given a chance this year.

    Its time to be optomistic.

    • but what a player we lost in modric! not many around like him.
      but we got to move on now.

      id actually play caulker & dawson ahead of gallas.
      he did have a good game thou. but he will pick up a lot of hamstring injuries so be plenty of playing time for the other CBs. especially with kaboul out for ages.

      as mentioned, bale has been coming central far too much for a very long time. its fine doing it now & then. but his main position should be wide left where he is most effective.
      also he swaps wings far too quick quite often too.

      lots of times defoe makes good runs in the middle for the ball to be whipped in, but bale comes central.
      to be fair to lennon, he seems to get it more & is linking up well with defoe.

      i dont see hudd as a defensive CM either. if he is, then we are in trouble. a slow lumbering lump like him isnt paticular hard to get round. u could walk round him or just pass it round him!

      but i agree that we arent paticularly good at being defensive & seeing out 1 goal leads. so id rather keep things the way they are.
