Vydra - could he make a difference?

Post by FactualFrank » Sun Aug 19, 2018 3:41 pm

From what I've seen of him, he seems to be the sort of player we've been missing. A player to actually play in the hole properly and link midfield to attack. He also likes to run at defenders and try his luck from outside the box. We're missing Defour and Brady, but hope Vydra makes the bench and comes on against Fulham.

He could be the next Vardy if you rearrange his name :)

Yeah I think so, Wood had zero service today. The wide players just don't offer an awful lot really and Hendrick isn't a natural number 10.

What position/role does Lennon play? We used to have wingers like Connelly, Morgan, Kindon, James etc.
Watched Tripps last night on TV - wish he was still here - what a player - but also was given service as well.

We simply don’t have enough goals in us. Any team that can score two past us will always get something. As soon as that third went in today that was it.

That's why I think Vydra will help. He just looks the sort of player who doesn't mess about and will help us penetrate the opposition deeper and quicker.

We don't play the type of game that allows a player like Vydra to showcase his talents. We're a laborious team, our game is all about the work, not the talent.

Vydra is a number 10 player, that's where he shines, I fear he'll be played elsewhere and we'll just all be frustrated.

I understand. The squad is a bit thin on creativity just now, especially when maybe our 2 most creative players are injured.
Looking forward to them coming back.

So we’re pinning our hopes on Vydra ? Think that may serve to illustrate the paucity of our transfer window, yet many on here we’re incredulously hailing it as a success.
Oldest squad in the league, zero apparent creativity, more goalkeepers than effective midfielders and strikers.
Not good enough, nowhere near good enough.

Where’s Walts and the coffee carrier ? Weren’t they going to be ripping it up this season ?

The lack of updates on Defour is unusual, not even an ETA on his arrival. He was supposed to have had an operation, rested over summer and come back. What's actually happened? Is he out for the season?

Always worry how a player comes back after a bad injury so it'll be hard for Brady.

Yeah you get to wondering if he's going to play for us again (Defour). Sh!t now I'm starting to get depressed.

Vydra would have broke the net with that chance Hendrick had today. Instead, he tried to be too clever.

If there is other issues with Defour it begs the question why we didn’t sign a replacement?

We better hope so, country didn’t go to the World Cup so has been free all summer why we leave it last min to buy a unfit player for over 10 million doesn’t seem like good business and Southampton was there for the taking and so was Watford in the first half, 5 points dropped already cause of this Guy? That’s if we’re assuming he’s the answer to all our prayers. Can’t rely on one player.

Yes he is the answer to what we've been missing, but can only help if Sean plays him where he's most effective.

The longer he's not playing for us the better he's becoming.
It isn't worth playing him to ruin the image people have of him already.

You should know better of me to say that. I've randomly been looking at Yotube videos of the latest dance music and then eventually started watching tutorials on how to talk to a giraffe, mixed with watching videos of Vydra.

People will complain, regardless, we know that. But I think we have a cracking player.

It wasn't aimed at you, I've seen enough comments to see that he's getting 'better' the longer he doesn't play.

The same happened with Marney for us and Ings at Liverpool.

He certainly can make the difference. Needs to be deployed properly though - in the number 10 role - not just alongside the main striker.

He will be of no benefit if he is played in a similar role to the the rest of the team, he's simply a forward player and consequently needs to be used as that to get the best from him, can be a cracking player but only if he's given the freedom that 1 or 2 other players in the past haven't, I'm not having a go but we need to abandon some of the defensive minded play and take our chances, no other team passes back as much as us in my opinion and if we continue to do so we're gonna get found out.

Vydra won't play coz he's not Dyche's fit. It could be October before Hendrick stops in the number 10 role, ferkin joke.

Well, I expect Vydra to start from the bench. So when he appears on the bench, that's a good sign that he's not far off. He'll then come on as a sub and we'll see what he can do. I'd be surprised if it's October though. I'm half expecting (hoping), he makes the bench next weekend.

It's not a question that he's not far off. Our most successful seasons under Dyche have been with 442, Ings and Vokes, Ashley Barnes and and Vokes, Wood and Barnes ( Everton at home, West Ham away etc). For flicks sake lets get back to basics, sorry, I'd forgotten Hendrick as number 10 is the answer. Nonsense .

We should all know the pattern by now, 6 weeks to get dyche fit, hamstring pull, touch and go, back December, it looked to me that on Sunday majority had taken that long getting dyche fit " pre-season " that their already bloody knackered, some people might say yes but we've got europa league as well but we're largely fielding 2 different teams, let's get vydra on the pitch ffs and give us some movement and creativity up front.

If he can shoot and wirk the goal Keeper from 0-20 yards out it'll be an upgrade on what we have currently, if he can set up a few, or even score a goal or 2 along the way, it'll be a bonus .

The lack of bodies in the box , or having the positional instinct of a goalscorer is the issue. No point Lennon getting on the ball and skinning his man, when the pull back falls into a an open space around the penalty spot, with the 1 forward player we have making a near post run.

Like to think Vydra could be ready for the United game in two weeks time
and Brady and Defour for after the international break two weeks later.

We need all three in and firing on all cylinders especially Brady and Defour as they could
make the difference if they can come back and show the form they were in before injuries last season.
That's not a given as we all know. It could take them a while toget back up to speed.
Vydra is an unknown quantity as we don't know whether he can make the step up.

Hopefully so.

Marney didn't become better when he was out injured but the need for him in the team became greater. The same with Defour now. Stop imagining you know what others think!

Of course he can make a difference, that's why we bought him. He won't always be THE difference, as with Brady, Defour or anyone else. The more options we have the better, and there's no doubt we were a tad short on Sunday. On another day we go in at half time ahead, and that system and 11 players gets us 3 points.

Great display, good movement. As someone mentioned in the player ratings, seemed to have quite an understanding with Jrod already.

Early days, of course, but they look promising together.

Vydra & Jay are the two most natural finishers we have. Don’t like to think what’s going to happen when Wood & Barnes are fit, who will start out of the four.

Vydra and J’Rod. At the moment they are working well, and when they stop working well, put Wood and Barnes back on. What a non-problem to have.
