Controversy warning! Do you think Radz is truly targeting promotion this year? I appreciate he certainly wouldn’t turn it down but unlike a lot of owners he’s only ever stated an expectation of the playoffs.

When you look at our most recently linked signing, he’s just a boy falling under that well used phrase ‘one for the future’. The future for us fans is always the next game we play of course, I personally would rather we signed Hugil but that will cost considerably more. Then when the Team slumped and we all wondered whether TC would survive, the buzz word used consistently by Radz and TC was the “project” “long term project” Buying the ground back was amazing for us but also strategically vital for Radz.

I would think we will know for sure post this transfer window as to whether there is genuine intent to get promoted this year IF we use some of the Wood/Taylor transfer funds. Of course I want promotion as soon as possible and my passion for achieving that certainly clounds my judgement. But Radz is a very very astute businessman certainly far cleverer than me, so is the plethora of young players we continue to stockpile all to do with next seasons assault or god forbid the season after?

Probably our most telling my transfer window for many seasons, still a better problem to have than what we’ve endured in previous seasons. Personally hope we buy proven championship players to go with what we’ve got, Hugil, Madine, Kayal, Walton (Brighton Keeper at Luton is sensational) and a experienced left back whom I’m struggling to find.

Classof92, glad you clarified your post with the controversy warning, don't want a post that asks questions of the club to labled negative. Agree with your sentiment and agree AR does have a good business brain. We do seem more geared towards building for the future rather than the present, although I believe AR hoped the recruitment to the first team squad at the beginning of the season would be enough to get us up. For a time it looked to be going that way, but unless we strengthen for a real play off push this transfer window, I believe we will fall short.


2.) 03 Jan 2018 16:36:33
I think his intentions have been made very clear from the start; one step further than last year, which means the play offs. I don't think he's ever openly stated that promotion was a target for this year, and doubt we will see the investment in this window to push for it. Reckon we will have to be patient for a little longer yet. tho I still find the positives in the whole "investment for the future" thing.


3.) 03 Jan 2018 17:28:36
I agree lads. Promotion this year to any business man is a no brainer but play offs or at least a valiant effort would not be a failure. If we keep all our assets intact. We, seemingly, have the foundations in place, with a little winter/summer recruitment, for a concerted effort next season. This season a glorious failure will be accepted by most fans but next year; expectations will be higher and possibly automatic promotion is the only target.


4.) 03 Jan 2018 17:31:17
I agree totally Brightwhite The point I was trying to convey was as much as I want us to be promoted this year every year. The ‘project’ may have always been a 2/3 year deal. So when you asses against the project, ground repurchased lots of exciting talent for the future, attendances up. It’s going exactly as Radz hoped/planned for. Which is probably why Radz appears so calm and pragmatic on his Twitter posts whenever we have slipped up! I’m very happy, just passionate to get back to where we belong, as we all are.


5.) 03 Jan 2018 21:30:24
Bang right 92, and I'm with you all the way! And leodis, yep, just yep. MOT!


6.) 04 Jan 2018 15:39:03
I can see the promotion aim being the next few years but we will take it if it comes earlier. we won't be spending over the odds and it looks like we are clearly aiming to develop our team from the youth ranks either to sell on for decent money or to add to our own first team. I can't see it being this year for promotion myself.


7.) 05 Jan 2018 10:04:00
Didn't he say " within 3 years or he'll let someone else try" I think he's spot on Look at the money some other clubs spent ( owls) last year. They'd swap with us right now Slow and steady sometimes wins the race If he'd have been in charge when ridsdale was I suspect we'd have been a lot better off in the last 15 years

Great to read everyone’s views as always. This league raises more questions than answers, definitely the toughest league in Europe where anyone really can beat anyone. Lots of views on here about us requiring better quality players and reinvestment of the Taylor/Wood funds.

Well I honestly believe none of us would have been very happy if we had signed anyone from either Sheffiled United or Cardiff squads before the season started but look where they are now. Then contrary to this sits Wolves who spent biggest of all and ‘should’ be there or there abouts at the end of the season. then they lose to QPR! As people have said, we were lucky with results today, with only Bristol City leapfrogging us.

Yes, same Bristol City we spanked at their home ground only last week. Then you look at our individual players with many supporters saying Phillips just not up to the required standard, not certain is my own view BUT I know he ran and ran last night, so then you think is that it? In this league every single player must have to be fully 100% on their game every single week? Said it was more questions than answers, then it struck me! I can’t that’s no like previous seasons anymore bloody hell I’ve got to improve !

This is the easiest championship for at least 3-4 yrs. not tough at all! I haven't seen a decent team yet. Last year there were 3-4 standouts. Every team that has beaten us has been poor and teams we should have beaten.


 

 

23 Mar 2017 23:20:17
The full back positions and who plays and what side they play has generated an incredible amount of debate. There are the rumours that possibly the left back position may not be ideal for Berardi?

Then will Charlie Taylor stay ? Lots of things in the air and although we do have a couple of promising youngsters in the team at present in Coyle and Denton. I would like to see the club make a brace and proactive step in appointing a world class coach just for the full backs.

To appoint someone who has had an amazing professional career in the full back position and someone who could utilise a near perfect marriage of coaching and playing experience to make us 'world class' in the full back positions. The guy is currently Head of Male Football at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College

feeling really fortunate as i already know we will win tomorrow! not a single grain of doubt in my mind. have already added the points to the table and visualised what tomorrow's win will do for the players confidence. we have the best management team, certainly the best supporters and tomorrow will show. the best team in the division bar none. i don't hope so, i absolutely know so mot 👍.

Wow some prediction. Hope your right class because if not your going to look. Well you get the the gist. Don't underestimate any team in this division. They already said they wanna do us for there fans as a thank you.

Andrea Radrizzani
✔ Big fan of Radz, but being transparent of our transfer strategy AFTER the window has closed, does not fill me with hope for any imminent signings. “I can see yours and all fans are getting impatient but I am responsible since last June and working hard to make our dream come true 🙏🙏🙏💛💙 @LUFC management will be transparent and clear on market transfer strategy in Q&A session in Feb. all focus on millwall now“

Maybe just keeping his cards close to his chest.


2.) 16 Jan 2018 18:18:59
I think a bit has been lost thro his second language. I'm sure that there will be another signing or two, judging by what TC has said, and Radz is just stating that he will explain our policy at the QA in Feb.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 18:26:35
agree I like rad but would like a big push for a striker as could be the difference, that said he is a smart man, no point saying we need a striker and will be getting one, might be a tactic to get price of striker down and not disappoint if it don't happen? glad all focus is on Wall as I will be fuming if we lose.

Finally a statement from our Manager! I take the blame. “Always the manager takes the blame and I will do it also today. “We did not give everything that we have during the game I believe. We were not intense enough. (The starting XI included) Players from the first team, players who have had possibilities in the first XI and for this we expect more. “It’s not an excuse because against Burnley we did it like that (made changes) , against Leicester we did it like that and we got good results, why change it? ” Sorry to all our fans, especially our amazing fans who traveled so far with their hard earned money to support us? No! Our owners more appreciation for our loyal supporters; congratulations for passing the ‪@TheFACup‬ round today. Great spirit and passion what we ‪@LUFC‬ lacked completely. Feel sorry for the fans, the lowest moment for me since I joined Trying to keep perspective about one defeat, but as a strong advocate of TC previously I lost a lot of respect for him today. Be interested to compare how Forest and our own form in the league is impacted by the FA results

Not convinced by him anymore, sounds more monklike every game.

Mezzer, not been convinced sine the first time I heard him, didn’t have a clue then has no clue now Time to stop the clock,

Unbelievable that STILL TC has not apologised for that disgrace!

Truly shocked that TC as a credible striker in his day played at a very high level considers we have enough (good enough) strike force for this season. Even before their equaliser I genuinely cannot see us scoring a goal. Think it’s right to have picked this lineup just a shame so few look like they want to play. As others have said, we will get more benefits trying out the under 23’s than this!

Total agreement Marko, think if we bought Madine and Hugil we will definitely make the playoffs. That doesn’t magically fix Keeper concerns, creative midfielder concerns BUT spending more time in their penalty box, with better goals converted ratio will cover our deficiencies.

He's a skill full player, and has been prolific at times, but is currently not playing first team football for a reason Mezzer? This is for a second half push for glory, so players on form with a proven record in giving everything every game is critical at this time. Madine or Hugil far better options at this time for me.

Think Martyn, has a good point re, Shelvey. The guy does have a habit of impacting games, I hope Monkey at least starts with the high energy of Viera and Phillips in the centre, Bridcutt way of form and O'kane not match fit. I think we lose the midfield we lose this game, stay with the positive take the game to them intent and I really think we can get something out if this game.

Play the cautious hold and see what we get tactics is not right for me. On a far more serious note where is MM? Hopefully, he's had a result with the sister in law or is on a shell suit world tour, but for me MM star of the sight come back soon matey. 👍

Almost certainly some media guru Leodis, That being said, it’s about whether his intentions are sincere, genuine and he backs it up going forwards. Whilst it is an abhorrent thing to do to another person it is more prevalent in the European game. That’s not meant as any form of an excuse but I believe everyone deserves the benefit of another chance. Sure there will be people who will refer to the original allegation but that remained unproven. I’m hoping the club have fined him the maximum permissible but I’m prepared to give him another chance In the hope it makes him a better human being as a result.

Thanks Spanish that was the point I’m trying to convey, as a Leeds fan I’d like 5-6 ( areas for improvement for me are goalie, left back, centre half, goal scoring winger and another forward) BUT my point was, this team with TC on point, team spirit and togetherness which confidence follows can make the playoffs and can beat anyone on their day. Sorry Whiteman lost me with the 4-0?

You surprise me Aus, but I appreciate the playing staff is very different from monkeys time. I was referring to the positive intent and will come no from our magnificent home support to put one over on our very own pantomime villain. I for one am glad it’s boro and Monkey, the players will at least have an understanding of the importance of beating the opposing manager for us supporters. With regards to TC being sacked I still don’t see the better candidate to replace him just now? Tony Pulis, May soon be an option, may not be pretty to watch but I’m sure there would be plenty of fight?
