Well done Tyler Roberts. Most people were saying "all the lad needs is a goal" Well he's now got two so the big test of the player is now the weekend. Hope he can pop up with another one (at least) then MB has one hell of a decision when Roofe is fit. It's a good problem to have.

Just as I thought, everyone is going to get a kick this pre-season. With each one getting such a short time to impress I hope Bielsas eye is clinical and accurate, unerring. The clock is ticking. Shagnessy must be cursing his bad luck. Not being able to show his boss that the answer to the CB problem, is already on the payroll. Get well soon young man.

With the great lack of meaningfull additions to our squad I must now rely on Bielsas professional eye and personal promise in that he said he could improve our existing team. I believe him. I felt last year that most of the year we were a promotional/ playoff side and with a little bit of luck and a couple of tweaks we could have made it (until the final demoralizing drop off) . Hopefully our strict fitness regime will see us strongly stay the course this season, the revelation of players playing out of their skins in unaccustomed roles and the final step up of some of our fringe players will keep us fighting to the end. It won't be easy for some of the competition have bought wisely and will steam ahead but there is always one who sneaks out of the pack and creates a surprise. Let's hope that's us.

To be fair I could of prob improved our previous squad leodis lol.


2.) 22 Jul 2018 22:21:45
It's worrying that is fans all know the areas we are lacking in and rumours doing the rounds that Bielsa knows the positions we need new players but we are struggling to get players. So are we waiting to see what players are available for loan once others have done their business. Smacks at desperation especially as we were sold a dream of good transfer budget. Sorry for being negative thumbs down if you want, but realistically can you believe we will be up there challenging
for promotion?


3.) 23 Jul 2018 17:25:48
The squad as it is now haven't a snowball in hell fire chance of challenging for anything other than a season of struggle.

Greatly surprised and confused with the O'Connor loan deal. On the one hand I feel that it is right he gets some first team experience albeit at Blackpool. Then again I wonder what we are doing in the back three. If we spend money and recruit a CB on a three year contract, what does that say to O'Connor. When he returns what happens to the newbie if he has progressed and just as important, what happens to O'Connor when he knocks on the door, with one year less on his contract. Do we ditch the newbie? Do we send O'Connor back on loan or do we sell? If he has done well at Blackpool I doubt he is going to want to play second fiddle again especially as when called upon last season he performed well and looked like he fitted in.

We struggled at the back last season and it was highlighted from when Bartley returned to Swansea that this was an area we needed to strengthen. Some young guys were tried with mixed results so to send him out on a season long loan when we are still light in this area is madness. All I can say is we must be expecting someone good to come in .


2.) 07 Jul 2018 08:00:03
The lad will progress more playing at Blackpool than he will sat on the bench. He’s only 20? 7 years till his peak. By then he needs to be ready for champions league 😉 It makes sense tbh You only need to see the career of sir Harry Kane .


3.) 07 Jul 2018 08:37:36
Not doubting he will gain from the experience of playing regularly on loan, just worried we still under strength in that area and no sign of replacements. We can't even recall him during the season as it's a season long loan.


4.) 10 Jul 2018 14:52:30
some season long loans have a recall option built in to the contract. it depends on what the club decides on.


 

 

06 Jul 2018 22:16:50
Don't know how I will feel if/when Hernandez/Vydra signs. They seem to be taking so long that the actual signing may just be an anticlimax. I won't jump up, a whooping more like pleasantly happy but worried that all our pound notes are in the one basket. Let's just wait and see what happens but for goodness sake may it be sooner rather than later.

Did not go to the match tonight so would be interested to hear. After reading a few pundits scores there appears to be one who, tho not low, is regularily the lowest score. Alioski. Does he deserve it?

leodis

1.) 19 Sep 2018 00:15:19
He was probably the poorest player tonight. He does lots of good stuff, but it’s often let down by the final ball, offside or ball going out of play. He was stronger earlier in the season. I’ve seen Jack Clarke play live three times now and against obviously weaker opposition, he has looked as good a player but with perhaps a more consistent final product. Clarke’s weakness is probably his fitness, he’s still building it up and I’m not sure he could put in a full shift in that position in the way Bielsa wants him to play. I’d like to see him gradually coming in for Alioski and getting some magnets time as the season goes on.

I think from memory that Alioski, struggled a bit last year after the international break, in fact I think he was given a few games off.


2.) 19 Sep 2018 02:37:51
i am baised, i like him

offers pace, can beat a man, hit a pass, get an assist scores (all facts) . he is caught offside and can get final ball wrong which frustrates. but he offers a lot. i would also like to say he worries oppents and is busy. I use last week as good example, every time aliski and saiz got the ball wall fans worried. for me this speaks voloums. also said I can see why some would get annoyed with him. but for me one of our better players as he makes things happen. this said harrision was different class tonight and saiz is one of best in the league.


3.) 19 Sep 2018 08:34:43
I like Alioski a lot too! Saw him in his first few games and immediately thought as you. Just wonder if he might need a rest every now and again to freshen him up and show him that there is some competition for his role. I think there are a lot of similarities between Alioski and Jack Clarke, Alioski just has the physical edge and experience at the moment. At the moment we’re comparing them against different opposition, but I think we’ve got cover for the position.


4.) 19 Sep 2018 08:48:54
Alioski is frustrating at times but does a lot of work for the team and has the class to be better than he is at the moment. Saying that Clarke will be playing in his place next season, maybe end of this one.


5.) 19 Sep 2018 09:22:55
Ali a better player this season than last, he has stopped the rolling around, but I do think he needs to be rested .
Every time he goes off on Inter break he comes back off, whether Clarke is worth a go as Spanish suggested then I'm sure Mb will give it a go .
Really pleased for Roberts to.


6.) 19 Sep 2018 12:01:46
Gotta say, I'm totally pro Alioski. He does have his slack moments in games, but I don't think his desire or effort can ever be questioned, which is pretty much all you can ask for from a player. Clarke will definitely have him looking over his shoulder soon tho, which can only be a positive thing.


7.) 19 Sep 2018 12:23:35
I'm not so sure we should be getting on at Alioski for the offsides, he gets in some good positions and doesn't get the ball played to him quickly enough.


8.) 19 Sep 2018 13:25:50
thats a good point stafford, think sometimes he is a step ahed of rest of team. and the oppositiion back line. i agree spansih think he could do with rest and be subbed early. that is my one compaitn with MB i'd like to see early subs when possible. for me the second the second goal went in i'd take saiz and alisko off and brought on clake and endmonson (moved roberts back) . think roberts could also cover aliski place when roofe back. that said i don't want to see him dropped and think he is one of our most important players fo making thing shappen but very excited to see clarke in action.

Quite happy with 0-0 at halftime. Need to get the ball more to Tyler Roberts and get it out much quicker to Harrison.

Reading the various "pundits" I can see that we only have a selection problem for the front five and of that only front three if you accept that Saiz and Klich are a given. So far I have seen four names in the striker role (Roberts, Edmondson, Clarke and Dalby) . As for the two places, behind striker, up for grabs I have seen six names mentioned. What do people think. Personally, because it's Millwall I would go with Forshaw and Baker to deal with the physicality. They both have good engines, can get about the park, like a tackle and are both capable of putting in a telling pass and popping up in the oppositions area. As for striker, toss a coin.

leodis

1.) 14 Sep 2018 13:29:03
Is Forshaw fully fit now?


2.) 14 Sep 2018 17:30:41
No Al I read he was working on match fitness.


 

 

11 Sep 2018 13:23:27
Let's not get too downbeat with the Bamford injury. We have done well already without him and we have Roberts, Clarke, Edmundson all chomping at the bit.

leodis

1.) 11 Sep 2018 13:36:28
Really bad luck for the Player and the team! Didn’t look that bad on the day! Good that Roberts had a run out for Wales. Edmondson, I’m not so sure about, a bit immobile! Clarke is the one for me, gives him a chance to get some bench time and he can cover wing or striker so more versatility. Him Saiz and Hernandez coming at teams could be scary!


2.) 11 Sep 2018 14:40:03
Totally agree Spanish. And Clarke could prove to be the find of the season if he can transfer his form onto the bigger stage. A very exciting prospect!


 

 

11 Sep 2018 09:18:07
If quizzes are quizicals. What are tests?

Tests 😉.

Certainly my jury is still out on Bamford. He needs a long run to prove himself but I hope that never comes. It can mean only one thing.

Martyn, hope it's true. 25yo Brazilian winger/ forward. Plays like a Brazilian. Not prolific scorer but could terrify Championship defenders.

From what I have seen of him he looks quite useful, tho he's young and raw so may take a while to show his best.

Pretty much agree Spanish but I would try to squeeze Forshaw in there somewhere to combat the physicallity.

News of shipping out 4 U23s then days later U23s win 4-0. Times are good. Just a question of how many will burst thro to first team this year.
