Whisper going round we may be getting Izzy Brown on loan from Chelsea. On loan at Brighton last season but been out since January as he tore his cruciate but helped dog botherers get promotion the season before.

Sometimes a man in a pub may be right, even after 18 days! We'll see .

30 Aug 2018 12:23:26
Izzy Brown has been pictured arriving at LBA.

30 Aug 2018 18:11:36
Good signing, taking a risk because of injury record but because of that we’re getting someone who has some premiership game time as well as playing for promotion winners from the Championship. A very Bielsa appointment that gives more options going forward.

30 Aug 2018 19:09:14
One amazing rumour about Izzy Brown is his supposed salary, 1.3 million! Can that be true! How much of a salary bill are Chelsea potentially carrying with all these “kids” who are still a way off the first team!

30 Aug 2018 20:50:44
£25,000 per week is £1.3M, give or take a pound or two, which would maybe explain to people on here where all the money has gone, bloody wages. Consider, "only" £5,000 per week is over a quarter of a million, it's a popular conception that most of our first team are making around £15,ooo per week, that's a lot of money over the year innit?

30 Aug 2018 21:36:33
You’re right Staford, it’s a lot of cash and for a player albeit with a premiership team, but one doing the rounds for championship teams. It’s another argument for having a leaner squad of better quality.

30 Aug 2018 22:26:28
He has joined now - confirmed.

31 Aug 2018 08:09:30
To go back to the cash deal, ER sells probably 15000 general tickets every week, 23 times a year if not more with the cup. at 40 quid a pop that's about 15 million quid just on general ticket sales each season. then you've got season tickets, then you've got vip passes, then you've got away games, merchandise, sponsorships, and whatever money the owner invests, 25k a week is becoming the norm for players in the championship unfortunately, hence why if you're on less than that and you're not a bad player, i.e chris wood, you go to a club that can afford to pay you that. its only business. just a shame our club has been wasting that money for so long.

31 Aug 2018 10:04:49
Wow £25,000 per week in the Championship! I did not know that.

I remember just a couple of seasons ago the talk about Chris Woods and a £15,000/ w salary and thought those sort of figures were huge.

I am with the previous poster, much better idea to have a leaner squad so we can have better quality for the budget

In reality how many players does manager need for a season, taking in account injuries and suspensions? I sometimes think that managers don't give players enough time to show their true form (Klich is a point in case) before discarding and trying the next one. didn't 80's Liverpool become champions in a 40 game league season with about 14 players? Can't tell me that players these days are LESS fit today than beer drinking and smoking players of yesteryear.

31 Aug 2018 16:02:01
Let's hope his injury allows him to play before the end of the season and not another Roberts.

29 Aug 2018 09:40:05
Perfect timing for a defeat. Last night will bring them back down to earth with a bang. It will show the management we need more depth and it will fire the lads up for Friday and make them want to prove a point against the Smoggies. Cup distraction out of way for me but others like a good cup run me personally like a good run in the FA cup but would rather win a league game than a Carabo cup game so it's one less distraction imo.

Agree10 Disagree1

29 Aug 2018 12:46:32
Thing is tho Martyn, how many times will we change 9 players for a league game? The lads that didn't do well will be fine when they get a chance in the first team.

29 Aug 2018 20:25:54
We don't staff. I'd rather have a run in FA cup than carabo but saying that I'd rather go out of FA cup too if it means we are stronger in league.

29 Aug 2018 21:09:46
Agreed, I love the FA cup and hope we'll be in a position to play a reasonable first 11 in it.

30 Aug 2018 08:11:55
Great point AL, very rare that we or any team changes 9 players in back to back league game so the cup wasn't a fair reflection. Preston are a good side and fought well last season. Shows that we do only have about 13/ 14 first team players as it stands, whether bielsa can make that into 18 i'm not sure. But the point still stands that even with 3/ 4 of our best players out against Norwich, we won 3-0. those 3/ 4 for me would be cooper (never thought i'd say that) , Forshaw, dallas, arguably 1 more as I expect one more to come in.

I'm not worried about Tuesdays result, however if we can't beat boro or at least geta good result ill be concerned, as rotherham, derby, and stoke are turning out to be struggling for results anyway, and the only good team we've played is Swansea. Be a real test this, a lot of the weight is on saiz, Pablo, roofe, and aylings shoulders now.

30 Aug 2018 21:15:28
It seems every game we play is " our toughest test yet" so far we have passed them with flying colours, never mind that the teams we've beat aren't looking good atm, teams are there to be beaten, top, middle or bottom of the table. Bring on the smoggies.

29 Aug 2018 00:06:43
Just got back from the game, not sure my spell in Leeds is bringing the team luck and I have a ticket for Friday!

Positives from the game,

90 mins for Pontus and Dallas and match time for others who we are going to need.

Better to lose this kind of game in a cup and not the league.

Good for the coaching team to see what some of these championship games can be like.

Didn't get any bad injuries or red cards in a game very close to bubbling over at times against a pretty horrible Preston side. Although Pearce was hobbling at the end.

What was disappointing was that the fringe players didn't grab the opportunity. Harrison showed touches as did Shackleton. Roberts looked like he needs to play regularly in the under 23s to get some regular match time. Dallas and Shaunessy just off the pace of the game. Also despite bringing on Saiz, Klich and Alioski with time, we couldn't get control of the game or create enough.

It showed how important Hernadez, Douglas and Roofe are to this team.

I hope it was just one of those nights, absolutely nothing went right and we had no luck . Better for that all to happen in the thingeymejigcup!

Agree6 Disagree0

28 Aug 2018 22:42:11
Firstly let's say we'll done to Preston, pressed us way quicker than any other team have this season (especially the first 20 mins) . clear to see after tonight's game that the squad needs more depth, shaunnesy isn't ready for championship football just yet and maybe a loan to a league one side would have been a good move for him this season, Baker and Harrison are still learning the game and don't quite look up to it at the moment. anything happens to saiz or Hernandez and we could have a problem, most worrying thing for me is Bamford, some will say he's still getting match fit but he looked nowhere near good enough to me tonight, at 7 mil maybe rising to 10,even if only 80 percent fit I would hope for a lot more than he's shown. I hope he proves me wrong but I would be gin smacked if he gets 20 this season.

Agree4 Disagree0

29 Aug 2018 09:28:36
Preston looked like it was their cup final, worked very hard and were at us all the time. In that sense it was a good training exercise and we couldn’t deal with it.

Don’t think we could afford to loan shaunessy out, but he is definitely rusty, had no preseason.

To be kind to Bamford, nothing came off last night but remember that Roofe had lots of games when the team played badly and he looked awful.

The international break comes at a good time, two weeks for recovery and a chance for Bielsa to work with the fringe players who hopefully won’t be away on international duty.

Middlesborough game becomes even more important. Need to bounc back and show we can learn from that type of game. Middlesbrough can be a more skilful version of Preston, only conceded 2 goals so far in the league, so it’s going to be tough!

Also great test for Bielsa.

28 Aug 2018 14:10:23
Saiz getting a lot of interest from Spain - £9mill bid tabled from Vallencia is the latest.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2018 14:45:46
Think it will take a lot more than that. I hope!

28 Aug 2018 15:43:49
Don't bet on it bright. Our chairman will be like a bisto kid when he smells cash.

28 Aug 2018 20:11:18
If Grealish is worth (according to Villa) over £25M, then what price Samu?

29 Aug 2018 08:29:21
Selling Saiz now just won’t happen, viera for 7 million is a completely different ball game than 9 for Saiz! It would have to be silly money, 20-30 million and the only club mentioned that could come close to that would be Valencia and they have spent elsewhere and even then, the timing is completely wrong.

27 Aug 2018 11:34:39
Hopefully we can move the likes of O'kane, and Anita out on loan this week, free up some wages for hopefully CB and winger/ CM coming in.
Is Ekuban still with us or has he gone already.

MB is setting out the way forward for how we train, approach games, and play. Great blueprint. Bit like Wilkinson when he came in, he knew what needed changing.

Looking forward to Peston and smoggies games hoping we can keep this momentum going.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Aug 2018 11:44:31
Ekumiss still here.

28 Aug 2018 08:44:45
Oh no he isnt.

28 Aug 2018 14:00:31
Ekuban on his way apparently but not a done deal yet. Turkey.

27 Aug 2018 10:46:43
According to Hay Bielsa wants premier midfielder in before Friday to cover for Saiz. Anyone any ideas who that could be.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Aug 2018 14:15:22
Izzy Brown's a name doing the rounds and Powell from Wigan.

27 Aug 2018 17:58:23
That would be good signing.

27 Aug 2018 21:50:46
I was thinking Izzy, bielsa type of player.

24 Aug 2018 14:32:02
Ouasim Buoy joins Zwelle on a season long loan.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2018 15:41:22
Bouy oh Bouy, who is he again? ;)

24 Aug 2018 16:32:28
one for the future.

24 Aug 2018 17:41:44
Yes indeedy alf, he'll only be 26yo after his loan finishes, plenty of time for him to come good and even make his debut for LUFC :)

24 Aug 2018 10:18:54
Adrian Balboa goes out on loan to Spanish team.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2018 11:00:43
Ok Georgie, get that Crystal ball of yours out again, who we in for before the loan period ends, is the West Ham lad a goer, if you know what I mean!

24 Aug 2018 11:57:17
Spaniard Not itk. However, I'd say a loan move for Oxford seems probable.

24 Aug 2018 15:39:28
I thought Adrian Balboa was Rocky's wife ;)

24 Aug 2018 16:41:43
Nice punchline Staff 😄.

24 Aug 2018 17:42:33
I thang yew.

23 Aug 2018 11:16:44
Cooper out for 2 to 3 weeks. Pontus and Stuart return to full training. Forshaw's recovery progressing.

Agree3 Disagree0

23 Aug 2018 12:00:09
Have you discovered any info re Aapo Halme? No squad number, no under 23 appearances? He is aCB!

23 Aug 2018 12:36:11
I believe I posted the answer on this last week. He's back in light training and expected to play for the 23s from October.

23 Aug 2018 13:20:59
Missed that one! Thanks George. It will be good to have a look at him.

24 Aug 2018 17:30:54
Spaniard YEP reports that Halme says he hopes to play for the 23s as soon as next week.
