The biggest concern for next season
 
 
It's crunch time and if TP thinks Rudy is the player for that starting berth up top, which given his substitution last night implies he might well be, what does that mean for the season?

I'm a fan of Pulis but do the people of FMTTM think this is a good idea?

He's a pragmatic manager, if Gestede starts the season and is rubbish, Pulis will drop him, like he did with Britt.

If Rudy starts the season as the first choice striker then Pulis won't see out 10 games imo.

Is that the same Rudy who only had one decent game in the past 2 seasons and had hardly been on a winning side for yonks ?
That saying about "parting makes the heart grow fonder" certainly seems to apply in football.
Although my faith in Pulis has certainly dropped a few notches after his seeming inability to go and try and win a game which was vital for our season. [sad]

Pulis did get it wrong last night, but in his 5 months here he's got more right than wrong imho.

I doubt Gestede will be first choice come August TBH.

To those who want shot of TP, regardless of who else you want in or whether you don't like him, do you really want a 5th permanent manager in little over a year? Can't you just give him a few months of next season at least?

Posters on here were saying Bamford was not good enough that he hit 10 goals in 10 games and the same posters said he was the best striker in the Championship.

Gestede deserves a chance, he is slow but he can also head a ball under challenges. As AT says TP is ruthless when he has to be.

Gestede is a problem that has resulted from seasons of poor recruitment, I honestly do not know why he is at the club. Who through he was a good signing as a player to drag us away from the relegation zone in the PL?

We have five strikers/forwards at the club Bamford, Assombalonga, Fletcher, Braithwaite and Gestede costing in the region of £45 million.

Bamford I am happy with, Assomblaonga I remain to be convinced, but we over paid, the other's are woeful and we will do well to get them out of the club without taking a huge loss and subsidising wages.

Beggars belief.

Stay on topic.

If TP gives Rudy the responsibility of being our top choice.. What are your thoughts?

Personally I'll be pretty gutted and that decision would make me question his ability to take us forward.

I'm not calling for his head, I don't think he has enough in his locker to get us promoted but he deserves a chance and a window to see what he can produce. My biggest concern is that it goes wrong again early next season (it could very easily) and he's brought in a bunch of players to fit his style of football and we're left with another new manager to pick up the pieces of workmanlike playwrs. I don't see him bringing in a number 10 and I expect a few tall athletes coming in.

"Personally I'll be pretty gutted and that decision would make me question his ability to take us forward."

Even if he just does it for one game and then changes his mind if RG doesn't cut the mustard?

What if Gestede bags a hat-trick, would you still question it?

What if Gestede starts and plays rubbish but his presence allows other players to make a bigger mark on the game and we win matches?

What if the reality is somewhere in between?

I can't understand why anyone wants to be so black and white about it, and as I say, I'd actually be surprised if RG starts the season anyway.....

He tried to get mitrovic so I don't see how he thinks any of our strikers are the answer.

No you're wrong redwurzel, can't talk about the rest but I said he was a waste of a shirt playing out wide, do you disagree with that and or do you think Gestede is the man to lead us forward?

Atypical I've watched Gestede for many years.

He's terrible at a lot of things to do with football . If he scores a hat trick on opening day that won't change that.

Gestede has been Pulis first choice this season because he fits with the style of play the the manager wants and believes is successful. HE is the best at doing what is expected. good in the air, tall and strong. For me this implies that If Pulis stays he will build a team of players suitable for this long, high ball style. Wether Gestede is his real choice or he signs another similar player is anyone's guess. If Gestede is first choice next season we will surely struggle.

Pulis said in a recent interview that he knew what was wrong with the squad but wouldn’t reveal how he was going to put it right.

6ft plus and 0.15 goals per game over the last 3 seasons. Why wouldn't Pulis pick him. [8D]
