I don't think Franca really deserves to start, however tactically we aren't able to stretch the game with Ayew and Schlupp. And all it does is jsut invite more and more pressure onto us.

I'd also go a step further and tell Franca to play really high, and not track back too much (task Lerma or Wharton with moving over to slot in when needed). Get him high up and wide for the diagonal over the top, and/or get him looking for flick on's from JMP. Basically give them something to think about.

Also agree on Ahamada. IMO Wharton has to play because of his distribution, but I don't see the value of playing Ozoh or Hughes in there as well. Would much rather have Ahamada as the more forward of hte 3 CMs.

I know I don't have my coaching badges, and I also appreciate that Schlupp and Hughes are more solid than Franca and Ahamada. But we are at the point where we are leaking goals with them in the team.

If Roy puts out the team you are referring to, I find it hard to see how the fans will not get behind it. So long as the players do their best, Im sure we will support them even if we dont do too well. Put Roy's usual team out, go a goal or two down and he will have to expect an avalanche of anger towards him.
This must be his last chance to build a bridge with the fans and Im quite sure adventure is what nearly all of us want even if it fails. At least we will have given the ball a kick.

Roy: if you play França from the start for 90 mins I promise I won't have a moan about that after the game, no matter how many mistakes França might make.

Please don’t play him on the wing and leave him isolated.
Play him as an inside forward with a remit to create..

He made some mistakes but what I loved about his performance was his speed and how he got us up the pitch. He definitely did more in 80 minutes than we've seen from any of the other options that have played on the left. Shame his shot didn't go in, but I was happy. Hopefully he continues to start and he isn't punished for the mistakes he made.

Trouble is most of our fans punish people for mistakes like Sclupp,Roy,Ward Hughes Henderson so on that basis he will.

Er

He was an absolute liability. Speed??

Granted he carried the ball upfield more effectively than schlupp, for example, but on every other metric he was wild

Not sure what you were watching. Made some mistakes but far more of an attacking threat than anything we've seen in the last god knows how many games. At least he's going the right way at more speed than the other pedestrians.

Agreed. I think he sat on the bench for the first 7 games of the season and played a total of 43 minutes. Clever use of a £20 million investment wouldn't you say! Give him a chance, start him regularly, he needs playing time. I see potential in him.

Thought he played quite well. The crowd seemed to think so

If you judge attacking threat as jogging up the pitch with the ball and little end product, sure

‘Some’. Defending was woeful (to be expected), and distribution was similarly off the pace. All very well driving forward but you have to actually be able to do something with it. He’s potential, raw, slight and needs time to adapt - the fee represents an investment - but the way fans have been bleating about him needing to be in the team like he’s some sort of second coming is totally ridiculous

A point proven tonight
