Not starting for Cheltenham again.
Is he not as good as he thinks he is?

Obviously there should be no appetite for it, but when you look at the likes of Villa it suggests that dropping allows proper, beneficial re-shaping of the team to take place.
Obviously there's the Sunderland example who make it clear it depends on who is in charge of re-shaping of the team but them aside you look at the teams that have come up as well and they look fresher, more exciting than us, West Brom, Stoke, Palace etc.
It feels like being where we are we are at threat of just withering away.

Is to make it West Ham boxing day-esque near the end on Saturday.
If enough people feel that way.

Could we do worse than getting him back involved? Perhaps add a bit of Brendanball back into our game, because we seriously need some different ideas about how to get a proper grip on games. Would have him over Makelele every day of the week.

He's got to revert back to this at the weekend otherwise we are going to get taken to the cleaners. Rangel especially needs cover behind him.

Better position than last year, but every game that goes by makes us less attractive...

How long until his name is mentioned again?

|Clement not coy enough?|
at 18:19 30 Sep 2017
Anyone else think he is a little too open in his pre-match pressers? He literally said that Ayew would be in behind Tammy and Wilf, and basically said Renato would come back in. Think need to keep it a bit more coy.

|Best Midfield 3|
at 02:26 24 Sep 2017
IMO it will become clear that our best midfield three is:
Sanches - Clucas - Ki.

Best of the 3 CM's out there for me today.
|Marcelino - exactly what we need. |
at 01:37 28 Dec 2016
I think this man is actually exactly what we need, and we should do everything to get him. On the face of it, he looks like a superb tactician who squeezes the best out of his players, whilst also looking like someone who knows how to tighten up a defence. For instance, in this article ( http://www.thetacticsroom.com/articles/2016/4/27/marcelinos-magic-at-el-madrigal ) it is stated that 'only Atleti (16) and Barcelona (29) have conceded less goals in La Liga than their 31.' (although this was done in April 2016 so those stats could have changed slightly, although they would undoubtedly still be mightily impressive one would imagine.)
And throughout that article linked the evidence put forward about his Villareal's side shape, ruthless counter attacks, great transitions etc. just epitomises for me why this guy could be exactly what we need. He is also said to be quite an animated figure on the touchline, which in my opinion would seriously come as much needed, especially after 3 months of the stark contrast of caught in the headlights Bob.
Not only this, but he came into Villareal half way through their season in the second division in Spain and guided a club that had been a very sticky patch back to La Liga whilst then,as the article puts it, 'built a team worthy of playing Champions League football.' when they returned to the top flight, on a pretty limited budget.
He has also apparently been taking English lessons since leaving Villareal, 'Since leaving Villarreal he has enrolled on an English course and he wants to work in the Premier League in the near future.' ( http://www.transfermarketweb.com/?action=read&idsel=181317&utm_source=dlvr.it&ut Obviously he was supposedly interviewed before so perhaps his language skills weren't quite showing through then but they most likely have progressed if he is still taking the lessons.
So, for me we would be wise to give this guy the job and go with what HE WANTS and trust him to do good wherever the hell we end up. And to be honest I think Jenkins and other powers that be owe us,as fans, something like this.

Like a statue tonight. Borja did more than him in 15 minutes.
