Thread: if you could take 3 players

  1. #1

    if you could take 3 players

    pick 3 championship players to improve our squad - only catch is all 3 have to be at the same club currently - who would you take?


    follow up question, would any opposition fans choose 3 of our players?

    Brooks, Lewis Cook and Lerma.

    You’d have to ask them, only 2 would probably be Smithies & Wilson

    Morrison as well

    I imagine a few clubs would like Ralls & Moore

    People won't but Smithies, Morrison, Ralls, Wilson and arguably Moore are top players at this level.

    I'd sign Sarr, Brooks and Lerma.

    Which would be fine if all 3 played for Bournemouth or Watford

    Rather get a player in a position we need than go for two attacking midfielders. Max Aarons, Buendia and Pukki would be a better shout imo.

    Moore isn't a top striker at this level.

    It's almost like there was a question asking which of our players people would want.

    That's why I put arguably. I think he's a good player at this level but it wouldn't shock me in the slightest if he went to Burnley.

    I think you could make a case for Moore. Depends on your definition of ‘top’. He’d certainly make the top 10% and maybe even the top 5%

    I've not seen Joe Ralls dominate a midfield game once in the championship.

    I would guess the average fan of a championship team wouldn't even know who he was.

    We don’t need any new players. The ones that we have should be good enough.

    Dean Holden named Joe Ralls as one of the best midfielders in the league. He's not going to dominate games but when he doesn't play, boy do you notice it!

    I don't think we've got the centre mids, wingers or right backs for a proper challenge. Murphy is mostly cold and then occasionally catches fire, Hoilett is on the wane, Whyte's name is rhyming slang for his ability, we have one right back and we have 4 centre mids that can't really pass. We also have no players that run beyond Moore.

    I disagree I've seen a massive chunk of his career. He seemed like a decent championship player a few seasons ago but he doesn't influence a game. The last few weeks I think his defensive game seems slightly better

    As you said, very few Championship fans would even know who he was. His passing is too sloppy for him to be considered amongst the best midfielders in the division.

    He was head and shoulders the best centre mid in a promotion team. He's clearly a very good player. His passing is average but his dynamism is key and he's a massive figure in the club. He also has a very good habit of getting in the way. He's a real pest.

    Our promotion campaign was built on being difficult to beat and conceding few goals. Obviously the midfield is part of that but for me Gunnarsson was the one who was more instrumental in that. Since he has gone nobody has filled that void, Ralls is an OK championship midfielder.

    Ralls was far more instrumential in our promotion.

    Ralls 37 appearances 7 goals 4 assists.

    Gunner 20 apperances 1 goal no assists.

    Exactly. We rarely play well when Ralls isn't in the team.

    Where are our weakest links?

    central midfield is probably biggest for me.

    Right back.

    Another striker option. Happy with Moore but he needs competition.

    Re: if you could take 3 players

    Last 4 seasons without ralls average points
    (compared to overall target)
    20 1.55 (1.58)
    19 0.9 (0.89)
    18 2.11 (1.95)
    17 1. 25 (1.29)

    Not a massive difference but doesn't show him as someone who massively influences games. Our central midfield is much of a muchness and has been for a few years.

    Ralls doesn't do anything to a particularly high standard.
