No Iwobi, no Rondon, three across midfield. Play 4-3-3 and match them up, even with our injury problems we should be able to match up a team like Brentford and have too much for them.
Who are you going to replace Iwobi and Rondon with though? The squad is so thin at the moment with minimal options left, and im not happy that players of Rondons ability are playing for us however nobody can honestly say any manager would go Gordon Simms Dobbin upfront in a premier league game.

Brands is the reason we have to resort to the likes of Rondon and can’t give a new manager money to spend.

Look at the summer window. We were just about able to bring in Gray Townsend and Rondon as long as we got Bernard Kean James and Walcott off the wage bill.

What type of squad doesn’t have any wingers; no backup striker, three number 10s (all of which useless for various reasons to the new manager) and bo right back at premier league standard?

Brands picked up a horrible position but he has done nothing to improve it and in fact made it worse by sanctioning the Iwobi deal and giving Keane a new contract.

Yes he gets some criticism on here, but no one is holding banners up against him or other board members are they? They’ve had years at this but instead everyone is lasering on a guy who has been here for ten minutes.

I’m getting to the point where I hope we do just fire Benitez if nothing else just timepiece how futile it is. Get someone else in and give him the same tools and conditions and I’m sure it will be loads better, the last five will have failed but let’s spin the dice again I’m sure it will be different.

Those stupid in game subs and selection pieces are almost irrelevant. They might rescue a point here and there but just look at what we’re saying ‘why didn’t he bring Simms on’ ‘why didn’t he bring Gray on sooner’ ‘what about two up top with Tosun’

So that’s a kid who didn’t light up Blackpool, a winger Leicester and Leverkusen deemed surplus to requirements, and a crock who no one on here rates anyway. We’ve seen manager after manager try all these combos. Koeman abandoning his strikers and having to go with Niasse, Allardyce playing Davies after benching all his midfielders, Ancelotti swapping midfielders virtually every game to find who was less crap.

It doesn’t matter. They’re all really poor options, one week one might make an impact and rescue a point or three but in the long term they are not credible options.

We continue to ignore the root causes of the issue sat this club because we are blinded by hatred for Benitez and desires for a quick instant fix.
Benitez has signed Rondon three times. Three. He would have signed him if we had a £1bn transfer budget, he loves him. He keeps playing him with an end product of 0.

Only follow us so wouldn't know but would imagine it would be someone rarely called upon and happy to sit on the bench and not play much. You won't get many good ones willing to do this.
Well he's actually 2nd choice as Richy aint no centre forward & Tosun is warming the bench.
Yet you claim other clubs have similar....well they havent.

He's the worst centre forward in the Prem by a huge margin.

But yanno Jaffa likes him.

Been on bench for last few weeks. (Last 4 games) Rondon starts or is a sub ahead of him.
It's shameful that he hasn't had an opportunity. While he's limited in term of pace, he was a decent finisher and arguably kept running and kept going.

He's not good enough but he's better than Salmon, and that's enough!

Richy goes up top when DCL is out whether he's a striker or not so should be counted.

Benitez literally played Richarlison upfront against Wolves, Spurs and City.
