We are in a relegation battle n hearing saiss on his way to Liverpool is a mistake we need him for this battle I would rather him to moutiniho any day loads will disagree but saiss adds grit goals n passion people say adama hasn't score in how many games n quick to run him down but when he's on bench I now most wolves want him on I don't get it moutiniho when was his last assist or goal?

Please tell me if I'm wrong on this also our championship side who got promoted would beat our side what we got now not because of talent but because of momentum were taking that desire I thought I'd never say this but Nuno has been felt with bad look yes but is he capable for this fight we have on our hands.

Nuno has to go, this run is terrible and he has no idea what to do. We need new ideas, we have no spark.
It is no joy now watching the team, Nuno has had enough time to improve results but its just not happening. Goals are not coming we need new ideas quickly.

Our defence is under the microscope due to our lack of goals at the other end and our style which relies on us keeping what we start with. Unfortunately our previous capacity to keep clean sheets is no longer the case. There are reasons for this but there are also solutions.
If we keep Saiss, and it appears to be a big if, as his contract is up at end of this season and the present rumours of a January exit, then we need him to be the pivot of our defence. He can play in a back four, which unfortunately I don’t believe Coady can, and he is enough of a player to be the free man in a back three. He is quicker than Coady, better in the air and better at tackling. Add the goal threat he poses, then I think he is a better option than the captain.
Doesn’t give me any pleasure to say this but teams identify weak points in the opposition and getting their striker up against Coady is something teams are looking to do. We are dropping too deep and having to make tackles in our box, which is not something we are particularly good at doing cleanly: hence the number of penalties conceded.
The solution to our defensive frailties is in house, I believe, especially with imminent return of Jonny but centre midfield requires additions or a change of role for present players.
Watching other teams, they all appear to have centre midfielders capable of running forward with the ball, to break the lines. (Smith-Rowe at Arsenal has added that dimension and turned around their season) Neither Neves or Moutinho can do this, lack required speed and athleticism. Could Dendonker do other than the ten yard negative passes, he must be instructed to play. He has the speed and athleticism but not sure if he has the skill required to drop a shoulder and create the gap to exploit. Otasowie looks a prospect, with the attributes to play that role, but understandably our present position has the manager choosing experience over youthful potential. Is there a signing in the offing to provide this type of player?

{Ed001's Note - Coady was player of the year for the Championship in midfield the season before you signed him from Huddersfield, could he be the answer in there?}

Our midfield has not been playing well all season. They seem frightened to go forward to have go at goal. We are too slow going forward. Neto is too fast for the midfield he has no one up front with him. Midfield have lost confidence. Neto tactics are confusing we are not creating many chances. Coady seems to have lost confidence, he needs a rest.

The issue is our midfield it's just none existent, Tuesday I would go for Owen and Vinthia in midfield give the likes of Dendonker, Mouthino and Neves something to think about show they are not invicible but sadly Nuno will stick to plasying his mates.

Melo7 you and the rest are bell ends. Where was you when nuno took us up. You think we have a god given right to be top 6 or 4 club. Look at arteta and how he has turned arsenal around. Yes we haven't won for a while, most teams will have a run like us. And who would u have the big fat Spanish waiter. Get behind nuno and support the bloody team.

Same here Matt mate considering some stuff I posted that was way tamer never did.

{Ed001's Note - that was my fault - I meant to hold that for Ed033 to delete his account and must have knocked the wrong button! Apologies, the bell end is clearly me for the error as that is far too nice a word for the knobber there. Sorry about that, it is editing on my phone I can't see all the edit page at once and have to scroll it across, which sometimes leads to me accidentally checking one of the check boxes.}

Easy to make mistakes Ed mate you should see the ones I make, I once sent of the wrong contract to the wrong company lol.
You EDS do an amazing job here :)

{Ed001's Note - ouch that could have been a major issue, I hope you sorted that one out ok?

I can't take the credit, just 99% of it ;-)

Yeah thankfully company laughed about it said it woke up their chairman, he was like "we are a car company why are we getting a contract for hops? " lol, funny thing is that same month I got employer of the month for securing a multi million pound contract too.
Shame those days are long gone now thanks to my mental health issues.

{Ed001's Note - sorry to hear that mate. I hope you are doing ok with the lockdown?}

Yes Ed mate cheers I think you guys sometimes get the brunt of my frustrations though lol, luckily I have a huge backlog of games to get through which is keeping me busy, hope you're doing ok too.

{Ed001's Note - that's fine mate, I don't take anything to heart. Sometimes we just need to get stuff off our chest. What I tend to do if someone is abusive or annoying me or something is type my reply (which is usually full of expletives), then get up, walk round the room, delete it and start again. And I do that over and over until I can eventually reply in a calm manner. Or at least I try to do that, it is not always possible. So don't worry. We get a lot worse sent to us than anything you have ever sent in.}

Rated - I am always happy to read your posts and am delighted if this site in some small way can help with whatever problems you may have. As I am sure you are aware they are far more common than most people imagine. Keep your chin up.
Sorry the team aren't doing their bit to cheer you up but in reality we all know its hardly the most important thing out there.
