Think what  iE is looking at in the last few games 

Is the Dion and Victor  Partnership 

for next season  AS them are the Two who have Contracts 

and if its not working  Needs to buy in the Summer 

 

 

Surely seen enough to know Vic is a million miles off Championship level if we go up. And if we don't, we'll never have a better chance to get something for him than coming off a season where he's (somehow) scored 15 goals.

He scored 15 goals because he was Burton's only striker after they sold their top lad and was the target for every Burton attack - in a team where he wasn't expected to chase back and press which is what Evatt demands of him and Dion now.

Getting a top striker has been beyond our financial means so far and whether or not we can get one next year is going to be tricky - perhaps promotion would bring new investment/new owners to the club? But we have to bear in mind we'll have to replace Bradley, Trafford etc.

That said, the development that Bradley and Traff have shown gives us a good case for loaning better quality prospects next year so maybe we could get a competitive team via that route?

That Shrews goalie Marosi is a quality shot stopper - there was something on Twatter showing him making crucial saves in their last game. Well worth looking at IMO.

Pigeon English?

It’s pidgin by the way. Nothing at all to do with flying rats or racing dickie birds.

I’m not one for pulling up spelling but I think you’d want to know.

I’ve just listened to Cotterills interview.

Pitiful sulking child.

He made it very difficult for interviewer.

He watched a different game to us as well.

Chey Dunkley was tweeting how he’d back pocketed our strikers etc…I had to put him straight, to be fair he took it well.

Love having a browse of the Pidgin BBC website now and then. It's fucking hilarious.

IE’s ploy of tiring the opposition is a loada shite really - start fast & score early, theres nowt wears the opposition down more than being 3-0 down at HT.

One lucky goal for them in that goalmouth scramble yesterday & we’re fucked - just like we were against Cambridge.

Hit ‘em hard & early and get the game won by the hour mark - then you can relax and rotate players.

Ideally yes!

Not always so easy though against a packed defence. So long as we win, especially with injuries, that's what matters.

If we're going to be looking at a top 3rd tier one him & Blackman at Exeter are good options.

I suppose, should we go up then Trafford may stay another season but he's ambitious AND impatient so maybe not.

Liverpool would possibly let Bradley gave another season, again if we go up. He's 3rd or 4th in their pecking order & they'll have radar elsewhere. He's never going to be their #1 RWB. But if they sell he'll be way beyond our pocket. They give no-one a low fee.

Never seen that before. Maybe BBC Pidgin needs its own thread.

I thought it was a joke when I first found out about it, but it's the genuine BBC news service for West Africa. Probably shouldn't find it funny, but I can't help it.

I'll qualify this by saying JDB had a couple of similar halves of football, and Charles has too where everything bounces off them and they can't get a meaningful touch.  It happens for strikers.  But if you're talking about a player that made minimal contribution to a game of football, I'm struggling to think of a better example than Adeboyejo yesterday.  Not 100% his fault, in that he made runs and there was little attempt to find him, but the few times he did get involved with the ball, that was a poor show by any standards.  Kachunga looks streets ahead of him currently.

I just don’t get what he does at all. He seems to be lost

Plays on the shoulder it would appear. He makes a ton of good runs but the midfield rarely take half a risk in attempting to pick them out as they tend to go sideways.

Felt a bit sorry for him and Jerome in the Cambridge game as their movement was very good but nobody bothered getting the ball to them faster or at all.

This. Completely.

We wont have Bradley next season (probably) and may lose others. Who knows how we may set up, and the possible subtle style changes.

If we go up and make Trafford our no.1 keeper for the season, that's us doing him and City more of a favour than the other way round.  He won't be No.1 at another championship club next season IMO, good luck to him if he is, but I'd be amazed.  He might choose to go back to City and fight for a place on the bench or he might go abroad but he won't get a better gig than the one he's got here even if its L1.

He seems slow to be that kind of player

Losing Bradley is going to be a massive blow.  Some bracket Bradley and Trafford together as if losing them will be a similar sized hole to fill, but getting another keeper in who can make a couple of saves most games and catch a few crosses, compared to losing a player that is absolutely pivotal to how we play, is chalk and cheese.  There are maybe 3 outfield players we can't replace when injured - Santos, Dempsey and Bradley.

The surprising thing for me was Shrewsbury coming and sitting behind the ball, they had nothing to lose and thought they showed their fans disrespect by not giving them something to cheer about.

Suppose it depends upon how their gaffer sees the best way for them to grab a win.

Especially with so many injuries.

Keep it tight, then maybe catch us out later on.
