|Eze has to play down the Middle|
at 17:40 11 Jan 2020
We are a totally different team when we play through him, close control, can turn either way, brings in full backs and can take the ball off the Centre Halves, which in Barbet's absence we need, not to mention ability to travel with the ball and thread passes to the runners.
Too easily marked on flank especially when teams double up on him as today.

Impressed with him yesterday for a few reasons:
1) Acknowledged 2nd equaliser fortunately dropped onto their guys foot from what should have been a fairly routine headed clearance, but.........
2) Made his own luck when moved the big unit up front and went long ball as sensed our substitutions with BOS had given us a much needed out ball and we had taken back possession in last 25 mins
3) Made a change in the 1st Half after 25 mins as saw we were dominating and his change seemed to make the difference until MW countered with BOS etc in the 65 minute.
Decent game with lots of positives (especially BOS + Lumley) with two Managers who try to play decent football with fairly limited resources.

Can't be any worse, surely Lummers wouldn't let the ball bounce like tonight's 1st and for the nth week running lose his man in the box as the 2nd for game-over. Likewise big Toni half decent on the ground and might get down a bit quicker and save a few.
|Leistner & Ball in the same team|
at 10:33 30 Sep 2019
MB mentioned we gave WBA too much respect, whereas I thought we were always a man short in Midfield. Ball and Leistner seemed to occupy the same space, with Eze then also dropping deep.
Stand to be corrected but when Leistner was brought back into the team, not sure Ball was playing, as Leistner and Amos a very different combination.
Not wanting to over-react as WBA very physical and athletic team, but I think with Ball being a very defensive CDM and Leistner a 3rd Centre Half, think these two may be too alike and not sure compliment each other, as say Cameron and Luongo did towards end of last season.
|Millwall Away - Not Sold Out|
at 15:33 16 Sep 2019
Warburton and this team deserve our support on Saturday.
I appreciate our away form has been dire for the last 5 seasons but other than cost, can't see many excuses for not selling out an away game less than hour away on the tube.
Being kept in for 15 / 20 minutes after final whistle is'nt the greatest inconvenience. COYR's.

Excellent tonight, must have blocked half a dozen crosses into the box by closing down his man. We have conceded so many goals this season from that area, was a huge plus. Combined with a couple of other crucial interceptions, hopefully he gets a run at Left Back till end of the season.

McClaren dragged him over for a proper verbal, kept vacating his space, not closing down his man, McClaren was doing his nut, and then yet again unchallenged cross from his space for winner. Woeful, plays percentages, never closes his man.

Fair play supporting the lads from away end today as AS game called off. Must have been bemused thinking how Wzolek gets a start in front of him.

Best of luck to the lad and hope deal goes through.
Watford turned him down as 'was nt at level they wanted and there were quite a few things he needed to improve on', whereas Rangers said 'we can't see anything we can work on with you' which surely must have been miscommunicated as that's just beyond insulting to a young lad on trial, no wonder he nearly gave up on pro football.
|Wzolek North of Watford|
at 18:44 12 Jan 2019
Masterclass in ball avoidance today, standing in positions so unable to receive ball and when his teammates did find him, passed it straight back to them. Reminds of Ozil as likes to play in space between the lines but like Emery's use of Ozil, not suited against physical teams, despite being, neat, tidy, keeping the team shape but offering nothing. Playing poor happens but hiding is not on.
|McClaren's coaching improving players|

Certain players seem to be working on their weaknesses (eg Lynch not now trying to get in front of his man / being turned, Wzolek being more physical in last two games, Freeman occasionally looking for a first time pass) Could this be down to having a hands on Manager who puts a shift in at the Training Ground? (Plenty to work on eg Leistner letting ball bounce in dangerous areas etc) but signs of progress?

Lynch has been our MOTM for a number of games this season and was outstanding again last night, distribution was excellent, and coming through players to win crucial headers late on. For those defenders amongst you, watch a re-run of Bidwell v Sheff Utd or Bristol City (3rd goal is a classic) or years of Onuoha being caught square on before criticising Lynch.
