why didn’t he sort out Midfield

Postby yorkshire stag » Mon Sep 02, 2019 5:08 pm

really cannot understand why the manager has not addressed the major position we are crying out for ?

we needed a real price of quality in that central area, i’m sorry to say this may well cost him big time

Just a reminder that a player can be signed and registered prior to 5pm and not announced until later.

A player doesn’t have to be announced before 5pm

(I hope to flipping God John has signed a midfielder)

The club usually announce they’re done. Also we’ve heard nothing from Dempo on the new signing, so assume we will be getting another.

BBC Notts just tweeted that our business is done.

Criminal that he hasn’t signed a midfielder. Yes the lad from Leeds might be able to fill in in midfield but he’s been signed as a defender and he’ll be very defensive minded - we are crying out for some real composure on the ball in midfield and he’s failed either see that or address that, either way I’m disappointed and it doesn’t bode well.

Literally do not care that we've signed a CB who can also play CM.

The midfield is lacking in both numbers AND quality. Who on this planet that is not completely bonkers looks at our midfield and says 'yeah, looks alright that'?

Banter club.

Obviously bought in in the summer to give us extra quality and yet knowing he would be out the door we haven’t replaced him, bizarre.

I think we needed another CM but not to the extent of some on here, Mellis and Khan are two forward creative players then we have Bish, Tomlinson, and Macca (who is definitely a better winger)

So yeah would have been nice for a extra body but it’s not the end of the world, we have the players to get promoted but I’m not sure about everything else.

I don't believe JD has not tried to sign such a midfielder.

Maybe ; 1/ The midfielder he wanted to sign has gone somewhere else,

2/ JR has withdrawn the funds / their wasn't sufficient funds,

3/ Donohue is coming back to the fold.

In essence not what we were expecting. No disrespect to the young lads from Leeds and West Ham, but I think most of us will feel underwhelmed.

Donohues contracted has been terminated so he won't be coming back

On the ball as ever Andy, Donohue has been released.

Your point could be valid Andy but maybe:

1. The players her wanted didnt want to come to play for him and the club

2. Quite possibly but promotion won't happen with the current midfield.

3. He's gone! !

This just shows how incompetent Dempster is. It was plain as day that our midfield wasn’t good enough st the back end of last season when it all went wrong. He’s had all summer to fix it and yet he’s not done that. He brought in a midfielder in Donohue yet hasn’t replaced him after what went off with him.

Completely ridiculous. How he can watch the likes of Macdonald and Tomlinson this season and not think that they need replacing is ludicrous.

With all the money we’ve spent on this squad over the past couple of years, to think we STILL haven’t assembled a competent midfield is shocking.

With all due respect you have no idea what happened behind the scenes so to immediately blame it on Dempster is just diluting the genuine arguments against him thus far.

He's the manager. He's clearly got a massive say in who we sign. The midfield is clearly not good enough. He's not addressed this, therefore he's shooting himself in the foot. It's completely incompetent that he's had all this time to fix a clear position of need and yet not done so.

It wouldn't even surprise me if he doesn't think that the midfield needed changing. Every single fan can see it.

Where has he blamed the Donohue incident on Dempster? He’s said he hasn’t replaced him after what’s happened which is true and therefore we still lack quality
