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.

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.

What's happening with the Ollie Mc Burnie rumours?

leodis

1.) 28 Jun 2018 15:50:40
I'm hopeful they remain fictitious

Erhun Otzumer touting for a move with Forest sniffing around. He looks to be a busy little player with a good first touch and a penchant for shoot on sight. Quite a few of his goals coming from outside the box.

Turkish Messi they call him in these parts, them that have heard of him that is.


2.) 23 May 2018 17:49:48
You misheard, they actually call him 'the messy Turk'

Looks like a done deal Jerry is on his way. Just what we need another Crapi player?

leodis

1.) 18 May 2018 18:55:25
Carpi or crapi leodis we should get our own back and send them ekuban


2.) 19 May 2018 07:18:49
Tom signing on Jerry may sign all we need now is Fred and barney


3.) 19 May 2018 08:37:12
Let's go the whole hog and get Wilma and Betty too!

Just seen the line up for tonight If it's 3-3-3-1 then there are a few of surprises. Cooper, Philips and Berardi, with Forshaw as a Centre Back? Should be interesting.

leodis

1.) 17 Jul 2018 19:41:08
Looks like a 4-1-4-1 to me.


 

 

17 Jul 2018 15:27:53
50K Per week? I can see he wants all he can get, Greedy maybe? but I suggest we walk (no run) away now. Our great club cannot be held to ransom in an auction. The man clearly has no desire to pull on a white shirt and feels his destiny is in the Premier League. Well good luck to him but his commitment to our cause is just not there. It's time to end this sorry farce.

leodis

1.) 17 Jul 2018 16:07:37
Vydra wants to go to the Premier League, so do we ! we need to have players committed to that goal with us, not sure Is that player. Bielsa has walked away from players in the past who aren’t prepared to put everything on the line for the shirt. Can’t see Vydra coming


2.) 17 Jul 2018 16:34:43
Good posts both, I have seen a quote from Bub that if he signs a player then that player has to want to be at the club more than Bub does


3.) 17 Jul 2018 17:26:32
So. is it best to play for a club at the bottom end of the premiership or play for Leeds United? If the answer isn’t obvious, he’s not for us clearly


4.) 17 Jul 2018 19:16:33
Of course it is, I am sure most players would rather play fiir any prem team than us, I brainier really, play better teams wk in wk out, earn more money, not really that hard a choice.

For all those that don't already know. Forest Green tonight FREE on LUTV, just get on to the site and register. Coverage starts 6.50pm.

1.) 17 Jul 2018 19:36:48
Its not free, £15 for all the friendly games. They make it sound free, cleaverl use of words. Kinner I guess.

So what we are saying to BPF is; yes I know what we all said about you last year, but this year your just not good enough and we are replacing you. So get used to the bench you will be seeing a lot of it in the next few years (uless you move on and we lose you)

leodis

1.) 13 Jul 2018 13:40:04
Leo I welcome Blackman. Competition for a place. We once had 2 quality keepers vying for No.1 spot, 17 years ago. Didn't damage us then. Goalkeepers can lose form and get injured just like outfield players. It's a good move.


2.) 13 Jul 2018 13:58:50
I am all for competition George but this I do not see as competition or any help to BPF whatsoever. A better choice in my eyes would have been Fraser Forster, Southampton, offered on loan. I have no problem with Blackman as a GK I rate him. My concern is for the progress of BPF.


3.) 13 Jul 2018 14:17:30
Leo That's what coaching is for. I'm sure Abad will handle the goalkeepers professionally. A rival for your shirt is part of the game. Has to happen to BPF some point in his career, may as well be now. I'd rather Blackman than Forster who is more senior, paid too much and could be disruptive. I just hope we land a couple of central defenders who will assist either of these developing goalkeepers keep clean sheets.


4.) 13 Jul 2018 15:38:18
Having taken more time to think about it, I think they will be sitting down with BPF and saying "look, you started last season as third choice, you are now vying for number 1, and a certain number 2. Keep developing, and you will be rewarded duly. " I think he will defo be playing the cup games too.


5.) 13 Jul 2018 15:38:53
George didn’t that happen to him last season, didn’t he wait his turn, and only after the other clowns failed he go in and did a bloody good job.


6.) 13 Jul 2018 17:04:41
Not sure of your point Whitey. LUFC requires a goalkeeper because the others they had on their books were complete garbage. Miazek becomes no.3. Blackman shall become no.2 albeit with a realistic chance of no.1 at some point in the future. It's the correct motivation to BPF as opposed to saying to him keep your performances sharp because this German 30 year old isn't breathing down your throat because every football to him is like handling a bar of soap and this 38 year old never was has been called Lonergo who can only kick a ball as hard as I can urinate isn't breathing down your throat either. Who would you rather they go for? Be happy we are securing quality not dross.


7.) 13 Jul 2018 17:08:40
Blackman is a better keeper imo. Bailey as back up /competition Makes sense and will probably get us about 10 more points than last season. Whilst BPF came in and did well, we still kept conceding in games. Blackman will dominate the box more.


8.) 13 Jul 2018 19:53:36
Blackman will start as No. 1. Chelsea would not have loaned him out to sit on the bench.


 

 

12 Jul 2018 13:16:48
With only 5 days to go to Forest Green and no new faces may I suggest a 3-3-3-1 line up. bpf-- ayling, shaugnessy, pearce--ideguchi, baker, forshaw -- alioski, saiz, pablo -- roberts Second Half subs from Hosanna, struijk, halme, diaz -- Klich, stevens, dallas -- and upfront edmundson, dalby

is Roberts back in training now?


2.) 12 Jul 2018 14:04:33
Leodis What you got against Vieira and Phillips?


3.) 12 Jul 2018 14:29:24
Nothing much George. Just wanted to have a look at Ideguchi and Baker.


4.) 12 Jul 2018 21:01:07
What? no Captain Coops? Outrageous

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.

That doesn't worry me unduly, in fact I think I am excited with the thought of some of our young guns being stamped with the Bielsa style and being released onto the Championship with no fear next season.

Reality Check. Played 2 decent teams (both below us in the rankings) and both beat us. One, twice. If we draw Gibraltar and Andorra in the Euros we may stand a chance there. Just hope we don't come up against the mighty Luxemburg in the semis.

If anybody did that to me it would make me so angry! My problem is the addiction to checking. I know before I look that nothing is happening but I have to look . 100 times a day. Is it an addiction or just delusion?
