McClaren replacing olly

Post by Rod » Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:58 pm

What was the point?
No additional investment and olly was making the most of what he had
So olly brings Smith on and its hoofball,McClaren brings him on and he’s a tactical genius
I was critical of olly last season but I loved his passion as did the players
Schteve will soon find a relegation battle was not what he was expecting
Another season for olly would at least have seen consolidation.
With schteve I see nothing better than a relegation battle rather than the mid table mediocrity that olly would have brought but few on here would have accepted

What a ridiculous post. To answer your questions/statements.

It has been stated many times, the board lost confidence in Ollys ability and Sctheve is known at developing players.

Where has that been stated? At least Schteve has recognized Sylla is a better all round striker than DC and Smith. Olly had a falling out and refused to play him.

Passion doesn't win you games. Where's your source of the players (majority) stating the loved Ollys passion? He fell out with numerous players.

I'm glad you have an insight into the backroom conversations and more importantly Schteves mind. This will be handy for other answers this season. Firstly, I'd like to know I'd Schteve likes single malt, what region and if he likes it neat.

Or relegation? Get over it.

Not only are you a mind reader, but you can also predict the future after two games. I'd like to know the lotto numbers for next week. Thanks.

So Sylla is a better "all round striker"?

Just one that doesn't score goals.

Pity that.

Matt Smith has 15/57.
Sylla has 17/55. Most of his season was on the bench.

That makes him the best goal scorer we presently have

Sylla is an awful footballer. If you think otherwise I suggest a visit to your local optician! 🤓

well, at least over the many years I've been a supporter, we've been consistent, we've attracted some of the leagues worst players on a regular basis. :D

Yet still much better than Smith & Washington. Funny old game football. Perhaps if he was given the same amount of continuous games as Washington was given it would pay off. Les Ferdinand was so bad for us when he first joined that we had to send him out on loan for a few seasons.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

Is it fair to say that the key to Sylla is motivation - when he has his head right, he looks to have some proper talent but, the key to that motivation has not always been located?

Matt Smith, by nature, will have a certain style of play and in turn to a degree, dictates the style of play the team have going forwards.

Not from what I saw yesterday he isn't. Another one who has massively disappointed and needs moving on.

Good in the air? No
Quick? No
Good control? Definitely not
Good communicator? No
Grafter? No
Provides chances for others? No

Regardless of the negatives around the other two, Sylla is a really poor centre forward. I’m not one to be bothered by stats to be honest. It certainly doesn’t affect my ability to see how little quality he has.

You might as well start with 10 men as start with Sylla

If we are going to play with the ball in the ground, Sylla is by far our best striker right now. Yes he had a bad game yesterday, but so did most of them:)

The talk has been of us becoming a more possession based team but the reality is that we are going to have to become more of a counter attacking team ! For that to be effective I am of the opinion that Smith and two of Eze, BOS or Smyth are a best options when we launch forward.
Come on you Sooopa ........
