Re: Prediction time - overs / unders
I can't see Siggurdson ever playing for us again - his case has apparently been put back to January, so even if there's no charges and the whole matter is dropped and he emerges without a stain on his character, it'd take him a month or two to get back to match fitness, and even then he'd get murderous stick from fans (opposing fans, I'd hope). In any case, he's exactly the type of player we don't need - no pace, no leadership, no tackling ability. The one good game in six or seven won't cut it.
Delph is just a sick joke - the sooner this complete waste of money leaves the better. Is there any chance we can offload him in January?
Gbamin - he's missed two years; Paul Bracewell suffered from injuries which meant he missed a similar period, and he was never quite the same player afterwards. Sadly, Gbamin is no Paul Bracewell - I'd say he'll be lucky to play at the level of the Scottish league or similar.
Gomes - there's a chance that he'll play some part. He'd be nowhere near the team if we had hopes of winning anything, but as things are he's probably the best of the four.
How many combined appearances do you think those 4 will make for us from now til end of season, including coming on as a sub
If I said 20 apps total, combined, would you bet more or less
It's probably less, isn't it.
Rondon would have gained a reasonable level of fitness and sharpness by now but he looks done, doesn't he.
An inexpensive.miatake in terms of money cost, but an expensive mistake in that he's offering nothing, I wonder if we can con Newcastle into buying him in January.
Iwobi, its like a slow painful move to the inevitable. It's not going to work out for him, he adds less and less by the week.
We knew we'd miss Doucoure, but it's worrying just how much of a hole it left in midfield.
Digne hasn't been in good form for quite some time, I don't know if it's fitness or tactics or what. But he was flying up until he got injured about a year ago. And since then he hasn't strung a run of 3-4-5 good games together.
Josh King, Ancelotti had to be persuaded to sign him, eventually did but then clearly didn't rate him. It didn't help that his attitude in training wasn't the best at times.
Yesterday was frustrating, embarrassing, annoying, when you look at the squad of misfits that have been put together it's understandable. I'd argue the recruitment needs an overhaul, and of that means ####ing Brands off, so be it.
Mina Doucoure DCL, would have made a difference yesterday. But there is probably 100m+ worth of other players we have, who wouldn't.
