I will always take the three points. However, nothing has changed. Birmingham offered nothing in the first half going forward. We had possession, created chances and failed to convert them. They did better in the second half but we managed a goal and held on. On another day we could have lost this one or drawn. The risk of buying players who have dropped down the pecking order at their club is always there. Middleborough and Wolves wanted to off load Bamford and Costa. It's clear to see why. Bamford was the biggest risk. He wasn't coping in the Championship. At least Costa was in the Premiership. At the moment Costa is performing worse than Harrison (who incidentally had a better game yesterday) . Beradi played well and Phillips scored. We are a decent teambut we haven't the strikers on the pitch to convert enough chances. Until that is sorted out our results will be inconsistent.

Our defence can be shaky at times and we struggle when we have injuries in this department, but the inclusion of white has helped ease the loss of pontus. (I think we have the best defensive record in the division at the moment) . But our major problem is scoring goals, the midfield has chipped in but even that is down from last season. Personally I don't think Bamford is an out and out striker, he's he holds up play well but his finishing is poor. Eddie is more the fox in the box type but needs the right service. Not really sure what the answer is but do feel beilsa has to work out another game plan to utilise both these type of players, sticking with the same formation time and time again will change nothing, Bamford will not score enough to fire us forward i fear.

brough did not want to sell bamford they rated him very highly they sold him as he had a pre season row with pulis. they still hold him in high regards. bamford ain't that bad and is doing ok. he is not a number 9 he is a false nine his game is not just scoring goals it is about holiding up play running lines and occuping defenders

just like frimono the difference with frimono is his wingers are firing leeds are not

as for costa like with douglas but have class just not being used well

i think it comes down to game play, set up and tactics. change this and get more out of all our players.

We fell short last season and to be honest doesn't look like we have really strengthened the squad sufficiently enough to push on. We all hope we can get up this season but at present we are not looking anything special.

We bought as a striker. Not midfielder. Don’t care how hard he works. If Boro rate him. Give him back.
He is useless. Worst player in the team.
It’s like a goalie not being able to catch a ball. He can’t score.

Don’t think our squad is that bad certainly one of the strongest in the league apart form cb which is lacking in depth

Trouble is we have a good championship squad trying to play champs league football

We need a change of system and style not new players

Said it a million times good managers get best from squad look at what bowyer is getting from league 1 squad in championship and what Wilde is getting from championship squad in prem

Mb is making a top championship squad look average when a better manager would make them look prem

Mb play the hand you got not the hand you wish you had.

I don't believe we have the best squad in the division but take the point that we are not utilising our resources effectively. The QPR manager has always used a 4-2-3-1 system but this season have gone against his principles as he has recognised that Hugil and Wells play better as a pair.

Normally agree with you bermo, but disagree this time
Paddy is our main striker simple as that, he can't score goals regularly simple as that,
Whether he is a no9 or not he is the one tasked with getting us up.
Surely the man who is getting millions to get us promoted should know that if paddy can't score then he should have a replacement lined up, we are way too inconsistent.

20 Oct 2019 18:59:43
Bermo I’ll bet you whatever amount you like. Leeds will finish above charlton.

20 Oct 2019 20:17:09
Worst player in the team.? I’ll stop laughing later, maybe, or maybe not.

21 Oct 2019 13:09:25
paddy is the man tasked with getting us up but is he tasked with being a goalscorer or not by the manager? I don't think bamford scoring is belisa's main concern. i thin he makes bamford play in a certain way. as for scoring goals i think eddie is as good as it gets at this level but not being used as belisa clearly don't want a goalscorer in that sense

as for charlton i hope we finish above them. but even if they below us they could still have a better season and bowyer done better

if we finish say 3rd but don't go up and charlton finish 8th i think you could make a case for charlton having a better season and bowyer doing better considering what club he is at and his sqaud

i still think we have a great set of players (other than cb) just don't think they are being used very well at all.

21 Oct 2019 13:11:12
by the way Chris i agree Belisa should either have a replacement lined up or be getting more from our strike force but i don't think that is his way sadly

i think there is a manager out there that could get bamford on 15 and eddie could easily be a 25 goal man at this level. again belisa often has a problem with his strikers not doing the business.
