Luton Town v Swansea City : Matchday Thread 2021/22 TEAMS
at 17:32 18 Sep 2021

Time for the ‘glass-half-full’ perspective. Yes a draw away at Luton would normally be nothing to write home about. But a draw away at Luton thru coming back from 3-0 down, by scoring 3 in a half we dominated….now that’s definitely worth celebrating. It’ll do wonders for belief and positivity in the mentality of the team. Yes the first half was ugly. The players looked cowed and afraid of making mistakes - result: lots of mistakes.
Second half, we cast off the shackles and started playing with freedom and confidence.
Result: very encouraging.

Excellent comeback - so glad for the travelling fans. Spoiled the afternoon for the whingers though!
It’ll do wonders for morale.

Closely related to this topic of course, I see our old boy, Freddie Woodman very nobly helped Ronaldo settle back into Premier League football with a couple of goalkeeping bloopers yesterday. I felt for him. Hell of an upgrade in the quality of strike force he’s been used to and was up against yesterday. I think yesterday’s experience might well affect his future selection fairly drastically. To be fair, he had no chance with the other 2 goals. Pretty miserable afternoon. I’m sure this board sends its best wishes.

Well he must be seeing all the games upside down. A different perspective all right.

We’ve played 6 games out of 46. Today was the first time we’ve seen some of the players. As I’ve posted, I wasn’t impressed by the performance - in a nutshell, slow, ponderous and predictable in those crucial areas of the pitch. I don’t see that as all the manager’s fault. But I’ll wait and see. We didn’t lose today but I find it hard to celebrate a 0-0 at home. I’m not giving the manager ‘unchallenged support’ but I am giving him the benefit of the doubt, and more time to work with the team. I might be wrong to do so. We’ll see.

How on earth have you come to that conclusion so early in the season? The team has changed beyond recognition - so many new players. My gripe is that there is no pace in the team and the build up is slow and predictable. But I’m happy to give the team time to settle in and start playing with more intent, purpose and confidence. At the moment they look very unsure of themselves where it matters - in the opponents’ ‘final third’. I’ve seen some promising signs of individual skills and ability, so I see better, more positive performances ahead. I’m still prepared to give the manager more time to create a winning team. He has some, if not most, of the ingredients. Let’s see if he can meld them into a team that wins games. I think he will.

Sheffield Utd obviously have players who can create chances and score goals . We have players who take 4 passes to go 40 yds sideways.

ITV showed a documentary on Tuesday night that was brilliantly put together - no commentary or narration, just lots and lots of amateur footage shot by ordinary people telling their own back stories. It was supplemented by footage from the relevant authorities : air traffic control, emergency services and other public bodies. It brought back the horror and pain of that day which over the years had become diluted. I lived and worked in Manhattan during the 70s so it hit me very hard. On Sept 11th 2001 I was in a business meeting in a financial institution in London Docklands near the Millennium Dome as it was. We were told to get the hell out as it was rumoured the City would be targeted as well - nobody knew how far it would go and what would happen next. Total confusion. A day to forget, but we must never forget.

“ Who is making their mind up on whether he is a hit or a miss? ”

Me.

I made no allusions about anybody else. I was just describing my attitude to our new manager.

Well said. Oh no here we go again!

Seriously though, your last 2 paragraphs sum up what I was trying to say in my earlier post. I don’t know if Martin is going to be a hit or a miss, but I think it’s a bit early in his tenure to be making my mind up on that. What I do know, is that unlike Bradley he was a player at this level, so he knows the game as it is played at this level, and he has contacts at this level. Bob Bradley he ain’t.

He might be another Roberto, …..or not - we’ll see. It’ll be useful if he can pick up his own Angel Rangel, Ash Williams, Leon Britton and Nathan Dyer, not to mention putting Routs through a rejuvenation process. Whatever. - we need players. He’s made a start on that and I’ve liked what I’ve seen.

I normally enjoy the discourse on here and am only too happy to contribute. But the early season hysteria that seems to have taken over the board regarding a new manager who was brought in very late, had little or no pre season, inherited a squad who had lost 2 crucial quality players, and has several other important players unavailable to him through injury, but even so has brought in some promising looking talent to supplement the players already here - well i find it tedious and pointless to join in the debate, the way it’s being framed. Nobody enjoys seeing us lose like we did yesterday and I agree, and posted during the match, that we were braindead in some of our play. I’m sure Martin feels the same way. He’s still assessing what we’ve got. He needs more quality players. We’ve lost the central lynchpin of our defensive line, and our only top class creative game-changer who saved our skins on more than one occasion last season. Huge loss and a big ask to replace. Give him time ffs.

You’re not missing anything. ‘Average’ is reserved for his good games. He puts his foot in and does some good things defensively. But he’s a very underwhelming midfield player offering very little in attack most of the time.
