The Haller Conundrum

OK so he's the record signing. But he's anonymous in games. But having said that, when he does get on the ball he looks classy, good control, keeps the ball and lays it off well. He does not graft or get involved, but has he ever had too?

In Germany he played a totally different game, mostly with a strike partner. We have Antonio and the lesser spotted Ajeti. So why does Wurzel insist on playing Haller up front on his own like a dick in the wind?

His body language is awful, he must be dejected as we are not playing to his strengths. When Wurzel was at Citeh, he played Dzeko and Tevez as a two. I thought he would play the same way here but no.

I honestly feel the talent is within the squad. But the tactics are woeful. Surely the Dildos have had enough now?

Time for a change, and lets get these players playing properly!!

Dicks is the man's picture

lets also not forget this is his first season in the prem. I think he's a good player but I agree this is not the season for him to be expected to shoulder the entire attack on his own. my problem is there's no one really to go with him. forget Ajeti, Antonio is the only option but im thinking we should've kept chick pea as he would be ideal to finish off the chances.

Spot on Ditm, Chick Pea was perfect for that role!

It's a shame Antonio had an injury last night. I think because he gives so much to the cause he's prone to strains and knocks. Clearly as you say DITM forget Ajeti. Wurzel clearly doesn't rate him. Which argues the question why buy him? Getting chic pea off the wage bill was important. But I'm thinking Ajeti is another Perez.

Haller looks the real deal when he's on the ball as I've said. But unfortunately he's going to get stick for his lack of work rate. When you've only got Antonio to compare him to he's on a hiding to nothing.

Get the pair of them up front and see what happens, we are toothless at present..

hes playing Anderson just behind from what I can make out but that's clearly rubbish. Anderson needs to be out wide, able to have some space to run with it, hes no Bergkamp. that said, hes not done anything this season anyway. we should've scored last night, how snodgrass messed it up I don't know, then blamed a knock. overall, toothless is the right word.

I think we should of signed Mario - he was much better in the midfield role busting into the box than Fornals

Assombalonga would of been a bargain and saved us a huge transfer fee and big wages but nope wont happen....keep an eye out for another striker Ivan Toney plays for Peterborough just like Assombalonga used to and this Lads got it all but we wont take a chance on him Bournemouth are tracking him and it would not surprise me if they sell Callum Wilson for big dosh and get this Lad in for £12 million and he will be a hit....you heard it here first

I'm a big fan of Brentfords Ollie Watkins. He knows where the onion bag is. But Wurzel would never stoop that low as to delve into the Championship.....Again!!

Over paying £7.5million for Antonio how it was to much for a championship player etc etc well look how that turned out and plenty of other decent players down there who can do more than an adequate job in the prem....Ajeti £8million what a waste yes Hugill was way overpriced and Moyes paid the price my guessing because Moyes brother was his agent.....but look at Stuart Dallas at leeds he's a helluva player yet we got Zabaletta on a free his age never questioned or fact his legs had gone.....Our board like making loud noises about what they spend and Marquis names but i would rather they looked a little closer to home than going for a cheaper Foreign option and when splashing the big bucks for god sake get proper reports on the player not only on there ability but personality and ability to play in the best league in the world.
