We could just not play with a centre forward, play a kind of 4-2-2-2 with 2 holding midfielders, two wingers and two attacking mids in TC & Wilson/Iwobi and just have them both as a false 9

Quote from: demeant0r on November 27, 2023, 10:07:06 PMI feel so relieved! Great performance from Iwobi and Cairney. What is up with Vini? He's done this several times this season where he just unnecessarily instigates something.
Vini was great in preseason and was okay in his first few matches, but recently he has become a red card waiting to happen and offers next to nothing going forward. Raul is also very poor. I really hope Muniz comes back soon as he offers by far the most out of those three, in my opinon.

On the game, in the first half, I thought we had both good and bad moments and a draw was a fair result at half time. I thought we were the better team in the second half and deserved the win. Bar a few big defensive mistakes, we were pretty good.

I'd swap Palhinha for Reed, Tete for Castagne and Tosin for Ream in the next game for me.

I think those changes should clearly be made and then we should look a lot more solid. My big issue is who on earth Marco plays up front?
up front the 20 million question.right now I haven't a clue as good defensive and midfield back up ,as for 20 million question give Wilson a go,Marco did with James last season and think he would be more effective.

When it comes to different options up front, we only have 2 which are either to play Harry or BDR as our main striker, they can't do any worse than our 3 "recognised" 2 strikers.

I thought T.C had a great match today, he grew into the game and should start against the bin dippers.
Castagne and Iwobi deserve the plaudits too...super game, great 3 points.

Gary moaning about VAR

Happy to call out when VAR goes in our favour when it shouldn't.

All 3 decisions were correct.

Why the referee thinks hes made a mistake I don't know

I've given it to Willian, simply because of his assurance on the penalties. Nobody played consistently well through the whole game. Cairney was good in the second half. Wilson made a difference when he came on but it was only a cameo. Robinson was good in attack but poor in defence. I thought Iwobi was good in patches and put in a great stint, but overall Willian's penalties had the greatest affect on the result.

Thought Robinson, Iwobi, Tom, Reed, and Castagne were excellent. Castagne did make a few mistakes, but saved two clear goals. Willian did his job all night and possibly should get MOTM for his penalties. Ream and Bassey did well overall. Everyone will blame Ream for conceding a penalty, but I think that's pretty harsh. Under a lot of pressure, Bassey headed it straight into the path of the wolves attacker and then the attacker got sandwiched a bit between Ream and Robinson. For me, it's a defensive breakdown that caused the penalty, not solely due to a blatant individual error by Ream. Andreas put in a shift but was too anonymous. Raul offered very little. Vini almost costs us the game. Lukic attempting a dummy late on that resulted in a very cheap give away, drove me nuts. Wilson was great when he came on.

MOTM is Tom for me. He was the best player on the pitch tonight. Lemina didn't know what to do with him.

One point behind Walham Green and most likely half way to safety. What's the problem, eh?

Good job well done lads.

It wasn't a howler from Ream, but it is another one of those situations where risk is created because he doesn't have the legs. If he has the pace of our other CBs he just runs with hang and tries to muscle him, rather than panic and try to shove him as he's getting run past.

For me it's Castagne, no contest. He was amazing and saved at least two goals.

TC for me without a doubt. We needed goals, and he was in the thick of it all. Have to give kudos to Silva for using this set-up of some strong possession players in Willian-TC-AP-Iwobi ; that is by far the strongest we have looked on the ball.

Quote from: Tabby on November 27, 2023, 10:16:49 PMI'd be tempted to try Wilson at striker at this rate. Surprisingly strong in the air and has some pace to get in behind.

He looked good when he came centrally. I think he's wasted on the right

Motspur Park

Thought our passing was slick and crisp at times, but Wolves had a better game plan. They pressed our defence and we were lucky quite a few times.
Cairney was man of the match for me, but playing with Jiminez was like playing with 10 men. We needed to press them like they pressed us. Regardless of Vini's over zealousness, he had little time to make an impact and at least had a presence up front where we had none with Raul.
We are a few players short of being mid table, so results like tonight give us a bit of much needed breathing space.
As for the penalties, I couldn't believe VAR took so long to concur with the original decision. Regardless of whether the Wolves player touched the ball, Tom played it with his right and was heading further into the box. It was a foul and a definite penalty. Likewise theirs and ditto with Wilson. I honestly couldn't believe the comments from the ridiculous Smith. We are not judging by past standards of penalties... we are judging by today and those decisions are given week in week out.

Pretty fun match to watch, and massive 3 points, but I'm fed up of conceding soft goals.

Ream will always be a Fulham legend, but we can't afford to be sentimental, and I think we have to face the fact he's not good enough any more. That's no shame on him.

I'm also frustrated with Robinson who is always being beaten and/or losing the ball.

Leno had an uncharacteristically off game (and some good saves too to be fair), and we were lucky not to have been punished.

Iwobi was great, although he really should have buried that chance in the second half.

Cairney was great.
Wilson was great.
Bassey was decent.

Agree with what has already been said about Vini.

TC was good but I gave it to Willian for his penalties, we so needed some one calm to step up and take them.

I don't think Ream isn't good enough anymore, but he definitely lacks some pace these days. That's the difference. Technically, situationally, and leadership wise he's just fine... but at some point the younger, faster strikers cause you to make mistakes due to misjudged pace, and therein lies Tim's problem.

This Raul slating is just always unfounded to me. Do you not see him hold the ball up constantly? He doesn't lose possession often, maybe twice the entire match. However, his winning the ball is so significant to our attacks. Just compare him to Vini and you'll see just how bad Vini is compared to him.

The issue I'm starting to have with Raul is he is just too unselfish and too nice. He wants to get rid of the ball to safety as soon as he can. He is trying to play too many slick 1-2 passes. To say it's like playing 10 men though is just far off the mark and I'd suggest rewatching the match, watching Jimenez specifically and see if the same statement comes back.

TC was great today, especially second half. Good to see him stay on the pitch from start to finish. Think with our striker issues this year his added calmness and eye for a pass in the attacking third more than make up for his defensive frailties.

Would love for him to get a run of games and kick on but I fear Silva will have him back to first sub.

I get AP works hard and has decent set piece ability but he's gone missing so often this year in open play.
