Adebayor scores 1-0 :D


19-01-2014, 01:10 PM
Nearly 2 !!!!

Can someone teach lennon how to cross a ball??

19-01-2014, 01:43 PM
It's Chico time... 2-0 o.g.


19-01-2014, 01:57 PM
Chadli off, Siggi on.


19-01-2014, 02:00 PM
Dembele must score but doesn't.

2 mins later Adebayor does, 3-0.


19-01-2014, 02:09 PM
3-1 Bony, sloppy defending, again. :/

Naughton on for Lennon, that will strengthen the defence... ;D


19-01-2014, 02:26 PM

Still feel we are missing another player or 2.


19-01-2014, 02:29 PM
We have the players!!

We need to play them tho'!

Lennon was virtually a passenger.

Dembele shocking miss!

But overall a good performance by us and a comfortable win!

Would like Bony up front for us alongside Ade!

19-01-2014, 02:33 PM
Yes, we have most of the players, not all.

When Jan, Sandro & Paulinho return I will feel happier, however I'm still not confident with our fullbacks.


19-01-2014, 02:46 PM

Walker is a superb athlete but needs to work on his touch!!

Would like to see a fit Kabbs alongside Vert at the back but the LB remains a problem and I don't think Rose is the answer any more than Benny!

Still we're clear 5th, level with the bin dippers and 3 pts behind the Chavs!

Need a draw today at the Bridge with a few red cards and season ending injuries...only kidding!

Think we worked hard today. That was seen in the amount of times they gave away possession.
However, Bony caused us problems. His goal came from a miscued pass, but you could see it coming.
As for the full backs, Rose at least passed better today and made an assist, but they both get caught out of position far too much. Walker makes up for it with his pace sometimes, but Rose looks like he gives up when he gets beaten.
Despite the way the formation was laid out on the TV, Eriksen played behind the striker and Chadli on the left. So, Chadli did not play in is favourite position.
Sometimes when you look at the players it's hard to tell what position they are in as the pop up all over the place.

I must say that Adebayor has impressed me. He has worked hard, closed down, run, got involved , in great positions and scored another 2.
I am still cautious though as we have seen this before. If he could play like he has consistently we have a great player.
I have never seen him do as much runn

A lot of good points Danegee!!

A good but not flawless performance and I was delighted with Eriksen who looked real class and a snip at what we paid.

Jury still out on Dembele tho' as his failure to set up Ade was shocking imo as it was at a crucial stage of the game at 2 - 0 and if he had passed 3 - 0 and game over!
Fortunately Rose was in a similar position shortly afterwards and he wasn't so selfish and greedy and an easy goal for Ade but if this situation hadn't occurred and Bony had scored earlier then we might have caved in!!

I hope TS removed his te5ticles afterwards cos I wd have!

So we're still none the wiser re Chadli!

lennon as he is so often was virtually a passenger, rarely making those runs he's so good at when he's on his game but what worries me is that when he is in a position to cross with players in the box as he was when Bentelab set him up he can't do it and the ball was overhit to the far side of the box!!

No wonder Soldado was so frustrated.

I'm not sure
