In an ideal world, yes.
There are some, like Roerslev and Bidstrup, that are signed for a relatively large fee and are expected to graduate into the first team fairly quickly.
Others are signed like Oksanen, Zamburek and Gunnarsson with a lot of potential but several years away from regular...
Hate to say it, but off the bench today he looked poor, almost disinterested.
He is likely to only be with us for 7-10 more games, perhaps his head is already elsewhere.
Was shanking the ball out of play from the half way line and looked a yard slower than at this stage last season.
We are playing with the handbrake on with no Dalsgaard, Dasilva, Henry. It’s not pretty.
Despite that, we defended well and then created the chances to win the game. Props to Frank and the players for that. Finishing was poor though. Frustrating, the Canos chance simply has to go in.
Another decent game. Involved in another clean sheet too.
I like him as he’s a bit of a throwback defender - does the basics well. But today he looked a bit more like a fullback too. Getting up the pitch, taking a few risks and one or two good deliveries.
Don’t get me wrong, he wasn’t Rico...
Today, the balance of the game was tipped in our favour. The substitutions then made us a less effective unit.
Do you blame Thomas for poor decision making, or feel sorry for him because he hasn’t quite got the squad needed?
I’ve mentioned previously, he’s not too dissimilar to the signing of Marcondes.
Obviously talented but not an easy fit into any position in our 4-3-3. Plus, a bit behind the required fitness levels for English football and only really getting minutes off the bench.
His cameo tonight...
