Mr Goss keeping options open

Post by Stans left foot » Wed Dec 13, 2017 3:53 pm

well, good for him

have to say I found the "boys haven't put a foot wrong" comment a little surprising
If our midfield were that good then we wouldn't be in the dire poo poo we're in at present
A midfield that hasn't put a foot wrong this season would have scored 15 odd goals....to my way of thinking

somehow I don't think they've done that.

I'm no tactical genius but surely for the midfield to score that have to be near the goal and be given time to get there by the forwards holding the ball. This doesn't happen too often

..yes, most of the times our tactics have been ...throwing long balls up front...and I doubt that you can score many goals shooting from the edge
of your own penalty area... :roll: :roll:

You haven't been watching the same games as me Giorgio.

Hasn't Freeman been involved in more goals than any other Championship player? Or is this just wishful thinking on my part. Whatever, this current midfield is far better than any we have had for a long time.

agree, I find them interesting and the best part of a playmaking passing side, but it's goals that win matches.

Scowen hasn't scored? ( haven't checked) and Luongo not many either

are we really saying ALL our problems are defensive in making? I guess so.

It's baffling that Goss has not played a single second of a competitive game this season.

We are shit out of form struggling in every dept & yet a 500k Man Utd signing hasn't touched a blade of grass all season.

I assume he trains with the rest of the squad?

Personally I think this should be brought up at the next AGM because it seems very odd.

I think it is no more than Holloway thinks others can do better.

He's obviously not pulled up and trees in training and is still young (ish) . He could still come good though as age is very much on his side. I would get him out on loan for the rest of season and see what he does.

Not sure it's worthy of bringing up at the AGM!

He's 22 hardly a kid in footballing terms, half our first team are 25.

For me it needs addressing.

I was shot down in flames many times when we signed him, we f*cked up signing a footballer that had never played professional football before.

He should have been a loan not fork out half a mil on an unknown with not a single minute of pro football under his belt.

Anyway just another fine example of how poorly decisions are made at the top within our club.

Utd have seven youngsters out on loan this season yet muggy Qpr spend 500k for the privilege, nearly a year at the club & he can't get near the first team, says a lot when your deemed not good enough to play for a team that has won a shameful 2 in 15!

I think this is a bit of a fallacy. If you have a great midfield, they should be dominating possession, feeding the strikers and protecting the back four. We don’t do that. So obviously the defence is very weak, and the strikers are not great, but to imagine this has nothing to do with the midfield makes no sense to me.

He could be a 1st team regular by the end of Jan :D :D

It's not even two months of Joey Barton, SWP or Caulkers wages.
Just let it lie.
Money down the back of the sofa compared to the past!

Your talking of Barton in a negative context, for all of his off field antics I thought he put a shift in & was one of the better signings in that dark period.

And talking of our dark period it's imposible to compare any signings within that time to our current situation.

Goss is part of the new era we have very little funds & Ollie signed him, WHY HASNT HE FEATURED, NOT A SINGLE SECOND ON THE PITCH!

Read Joey's book to find out what he thought of our club and the respect he had for the managers at the time
To think our current midfield trio combined are earning less than he did on his own.
