Hearing we are after a 22year old striker from Real Madrid called Raul de Tomas. He scored 14 goals for real valladolid in La Liga 2 last season. Looks like he knows where the net is according to a few YouTube videos. Possibly another Orta gem? MOT

I've heard these links too and really like the look of him, not only do we have ronaldo and romario, we've also got raul😂

Looks decent - got a decent shot on him, looks quick and strong and also good in the air and from the spot. Not sure about the quality of players in the Spanish second tier compared to the Championship but his return is decent enough.

Saiz was from the Spain second tier

Worth the punt imo I like the sound of this one

How on earth did we manage to use four subs?

I checked - new rules for the league cup if it goes to extra time you're allowed an extra sub. Good job TC knew the rules better than I did!

Burnley did as well

Cheers Alf. I looked it up as well.

Great result today! Here are my thoughts on the performances.

Green: he has improved. Came well for crosses, commanded the area pretty well and made some good saves. I think he had the two efforts that hit the posts covered. However he still made a mistake and was found in no mans land, although it wasn't punished, I just don't trust him.

Ayling: good performance. Wrongly booked in my opinion. Defensively he needs to improve his positioning. Too many crosses are coming from their left flank, should get more blocks in.

Bartley: good choice for vice captain. Vocal on the pitch, good in the air and on the ground defensively. Forming a very good partnership with Jansson. I think he is out of contract at the end of the season so him on a free next season would be great.

Jansson: potential club legend. This man is looking like he may have the right to be named in the same bracket as Lucas Radebe. 17 clearances says how good he was today. MOTM today. Oh and he won the penalty!

Taylor: solid defensively, minimised the amount of crosses coming from their right flank well. Looked sloppy in possession at times and doesn't look like the desire to get forward is there anymore. More concerned about who will be signed as his replacement in January.

Viera: I was a bit sceptical about choosing him over Phillips before kick off, but second half the young man and o Kane bossed the midfield. His best performance to date.

O Kane: underrated. He doesn't do anything overly spectacular he just does the simple things well and recycles the ball well. He looks like an inspired signing from monk.

Dallas. Again another player who is underrated. He runs up and down that flank all day. Think he could have run a bit more at lee peltier (who we know is prone to a mistake or two)

Sacko: every time he gets the ball there is just an anticipation about what he might do. He is such an exciting player with pace and good dribbling ability. Hope we have already agreed a fee with sporting for him.

Hernandez: showed glimpses of his ability in the first 70 minutes, then bossed the game for the final 20. Should have played wood in at 1-0 but what a hit for his goal. Best game for us by a country mile. If wood drops deep Hernandez needs to play in front of him.

Wood. Shocking miss when played in by Hernandez. Didn't work hard enough and was constantly out of position until the penalty. Then after he scored a well taken penalty and his confidence came back he started playing much better. It is obvious that wood needs a high confidence to play well so we need to back him because when he plays well he is a very good striker but he needs to be consistent with good performances.

Roofe: not impressed, lost the ball too often, over complicated things instead of playing a simple pass and move game. Needs to start showing he is worth £3m quickly.

Phillips and antonsson: not on the pitch for long enough to be properly judged. Both unlucky not to start.

Green was diabolical. Total mess for the first goal. Couldn't really do much about number two or three to be fair. Did make some good saves today. Better than Silvestri? I'm not so sure.

Berardi has picked up another injury! If it is another recurrent ankle injury I think mr Cellino will look to sack the physio staff too.

Coyle looked very good today. Made a mistake that cost a goal, hopefully he learns very quickly from his mistakes. Will be a big player for us this season. Need to get another contract sorted out.

Bartley looked competent enough. Judgement is still reserved for a time when we haven't been publicly spanked.

Bamba looks fragile and prone to make at least one mistake/ rash challenge per game. Can't fault his passion but I certainly can fault his decision making. Looks a weak link.

Charlie Taylor looked uninterested. No real attacking intent. A few class tackles but was extremely sloppy in possession. He just needs to leave if he doesn't want a new contract. End of.

Dave - some good and some bad. Looked much better with bridcutt or cook beside him.

Veira - definately a hot talent. The boy can tackle and ping it around the park. He is still very naive on the pitch. 2 mistakes in 2 games that have lead to goals. Although it probably was a penalty think cousins made a lot of it and went down too easily.

Grimes - was he even on the pitch? Only realised he was playing when he got booked. Should be dropped/ sent back to Swansea.

Dallas - looked like he was still on honeymoon. Should be dropped

Roofe - meh, not a bad performance to say he had no service, but I was expecting more from him.

Sacko - came on and scored a great goal. Shame it was handball. Very direct, quick and tricky must start next game surely?!

Wood - did he do anything? Makes me almost miss Steve Morison! Definately not a lone striker.

Antonson - good movement. Could have had a brace but for a lack of accuracy. I'm sure the goals will come.

Overall the game was awful. The referee completely bottled it when one of their midfielders deserved a second yellow. Grimes then got booked for a similar challenge. Really disappointing that referees can get away with really poor game changing decisions like that. We need to play a 442 formation with cooper in for bamba, sacko in for Dallas and grimes dropped for antonsson.

Great post AliLUFC, pretty spot on and accurate assessment of the game and players, we really need to sort out the transfers ASAP CB, Bridcutt and a quality mobile lone striker who can play that role to fit GMs system although I think Antonsson can play that role better suited than wood just needs to put his shooting boots on next time out!


2.) 08 Aug 2016 15:12:27
Berardi injuries are known to physios. It's fairly serious and recurring. This is why we were looking at Perico.


3.) 08 Aug 2016 22:38:10
DJ agreed. CB a priority I would like Liam Moore as I think he was quality for Leicester in the championship. Bridcutt is proven for us and therefore is a must. Another striker would be nice but I think a playmaker is more important, Bradley dack for gillingham maybe? . In terms of strikers I think Adam Le Fondre could be decent and affordable. Oh and another left back (Rico Henry? ) to cover for the inevitable.

Nigel Pearson has got the boot. Hopefully this doesn't affect woods move to us

Anthony knockaert has been released. Standard liege, leeds and charlton are interested. Really hope leeds pull this off. 433 formation would really suit knockaert

I read somewhere that we haven't lost in a midweek game since 2015. Lost to Ipswich if I remember rightly.

Think his honest valuation would be £5-7mil as that's what we wanted for Charlie Taylor. However think they would only sell for £15m as they allegedly want £10m for flint (a £2-3m championship player)

Think Negrado would be a class signing. But we should be spending £6.5mil (if we have that money left over! ) on a CB and another LB instead of negredo. Would be interested to see if we could do a loan deal similar to pontus' for negredo.

Swadlad. Alioski was a left back until last season where he was played as a right winger and he smashed in 17 goals and assisted a further 14. Not bad for your ONLY season as an attacking player even if it is only in the Swiss league.

Really swad? The stats say Werder Bremen allowed the most shots on goal per game of any team in the bundasliga. And that Weidwald made the most saves per game of any keeper in the league. Remember when we sold Kaspar to Leicester and signed Lonergan instead because we leaked too many goals? schmeichel had won the PL before we stopped haemorrhaging goals. Was Kaspar the problem? Evidently not. Likewise Weidwald cannot necessarily be blamed for werder bremens lack of defensive solidarity.

Hopefully he'll bag 20 goals this season, find his mojo again and come back to us a better player.

Hernandez should be dropped for brum. Not because of a poor performance or anything, just need to try and keep him fresh all season and not burn him out like we did last season.

With all these silly prices for strikers, I'm starting to think Chris Wood was sold on the cheap.

Jury still out on pedraza and barrow. I remember everyone being excited when Kebe and Stewart signed and rightly too. Kebe was incredible at reading and Stewart had pace in abundance. Just what we needed (apparently) . Pedraza has immense potential but may not adapt to to the English league, and why isn't barrow a Swansea regular? I do think they have the potential to be decent signings but I'm not getting carried away yet. Let's give them a chance and judge them after.
