    What do people not understand behind Jones thinking on Morrell

    Posted by Shutupya on 6/4/2021, 12:03:43

    Keep hearing “Plays for Wales but can’t get a game for Luton”

    Err … the way football is played at international level is hugely different from the championship.

    And

    The way Luton are currently playing is not suited to Morrell style of possession football.

      So true... Lutons (Pellys) 'style' is to pass to the opposition and then point somewhere random before walking around aimlessly...

      Morrell is another level...er... Championship level actually

        Jones doesn't like him anymore

          So why waste a signing when some one more appropriate would have been a far better option?

            Making a signing with the medium/long-term in mind isn't a waste, it's sensible forward planning. Otherwise why sign Kioso, Osho, or Nombe? Or even Adebayo, as there was a possibility that he wouldn't have made an immediate impact and might have needed time to adjust/develop.

              Yes and no. What have been a massive fcuk up had we struggled this season and been relegated. It is clear from the odd comment made by Jones and even rarer ones attributed to Morrell that he was expected to feature more. Why swap the subs bench of Bristol City for ours?

              Bit of a waste putting him on the bench as he rarely comes off it

            I'm a pipefitter welder. I also know how to balance and commission both heating and chilled water systems in order that room temperatures are set at the correct level, thats what I do. I'm sure Nathan might honestly find it quite interesting if he sat anywhere near me for 90 minutes watching me set the systems up trying to get the 'balancing' right whilst I poke probes in and take readings on a laptop. I wouldn't though expect him to tell me how to do my job.

            Thanks, but on this matter I'll take his judgement over yours.

            Why spend money on a player that does not suit our style or are we going to change formation and build a team around him?

              If you recall Jones has often talked of how he wants to see the side develop into a more dominant, possession-based attacking side. Problem for Morrell is that when he has played he hasn't done that well and it sounds like Jones sees him as one who has occasionally not given enough in training etc.

                Then NJ and MH have made a recruitment mistake.
                Seems bizarre though when you see how many times Rea gives the ball away. Not criticising Rea but more the fact that NJ does seem to be inconsistent with his expectations of each player

                  No denying Morrell looks a neat & tidy player but I think he's far too lightweight to play the CDM role successfully, Sheff W H being a prime example. I can understand why NJ prefers Rea in that position as he's usually very good at breaking up opposition attacks. In fact Rea has played CDM in 13 of our 14 league wins this season, no coincidence. Our record without him in CDM this season is shocking.

                    Maybe your stats really show we are shocking without a defensive midfielder playing. The stats do not necessarily show that Rea is a "good" defensive midfielder as he is basically the only one.

                    Given the 'back to basics' comment from NJ, I can't see a transformation to possession type football coming soon and therefore expect to see Rea play every game.

                    That said, there are times our passing and movement has been a joy to see, so it's in there somewhere and just needs tweaking . . with the right players.

                      Or, back to NJ's basics could mean a return to the diamond, which would mean playing 4 midfielders rather than 3 and therefore an extra place available for Morrell to fight for...

                      Mistake? Maybe you read my post wrong?

                      And each player is different and is assigned a role within the team, it would be bizarre if he expected the same of all of them.

                        They have signed a player with the future progression of our style of play in mind. The player needs to develop, as well as the team. Neither have finished developing yet, so you can't say he is a recruitment mistake yet - and even if he turns out to be so, he is young and has re-sale value so it was a chance worth taking. You can't expect them to have a 100% record on transfers - hopefully Morrell will still prove to be a good piece of business, though.

                          Exactly, perhaps he needs a few different players around him than we currently have in the team. Its all about evolving and developing at a decent rate. Problem is people expect instant impacts from everyone regardless of their role.

                            The funny thing is that if Jones gets it right and manages to integrate him into the team then a lot of these people will be saying "Look, I was right, all he had to do was bring Morrell in and we look better" and they won't even know how wrong they had it in the first place.

                              Just a thought ... if we had not been successful in loaning KDH or he had returned to Leicester in January perhaps Morrell would have had more game time....
