We are getting bullied by centre backs repeatedly, the sooner Roberts is back the better.

Today we went to a very difficult place and the defence and midfield can say they have held their own against a strong team. The strikers however had very poor communication and seldom linked up with one another. Disapppinting

I'd start with Pog and if he continues to disappoint let Alfie have a go. Pog/Roberts up top, get the wingers getting the balls in the box and see what happens. Would certainly be a good ploy against Swansea who have a small back 4.

RoyallyFcuked Le Fondre and Pogrebnyak are Premier League quality.
Roberts is past his best (and that was never exactly prolific) but will still add some much needed experience.
As for Hunt and Church well.....Maybe we should have loaned Church out and brought in another striker but I still have faith in our options.
We need a good team performance and win, so the strikers actually have a few chances to take. The confidence has taken a knock and that would get some back.



think it's far to early to say that on the basis of a few games Le Fondre, does have the potential but he needs a couple of seasons in the Premiership before we can truly judge how good he is.

I put up there ^ start with Pog/Roberts and if Pog continues his poor form give Alf a go.

Can't fault Alf's work rate but he has offered very little in the 3 games he has played. A penalty which he had no hand in the making and an assist when a game was lost cant hide some very ineffectual performances. I really hope he comes good but we can't keep dicking about or we'll get caught adrift.

We should have bought a 2nd midfielder.
