We never do it the easy way do we. Twice in front twice pulled back. Watching that you would never guess which was the Premiership team MOT

I see we are chasing Palasic. I hope he is a midfielder, with only 12 on the books we look to be a bit short in the middle of the park? Methinks a MASS clearout looms.

Midfield last year was nowhere near good enough.


2.) 28 Jun 2017 21:43:05
Alot of our midfielders need to move on imo. Dallas, Phillips, Hernandez would be the main 3 I'd sell, good players but none of them 3 will get you promoted.


3.) 28 Jun 2017 23:17:15
Murphy and Dave may be seen to go over phillips

Can anybody tell me what is happening to the 2 players we were chasing not so long ago. Buegelsdijk and Avenatti. It all seems to have gone quiet with them?

leodis

1.) 20 Jun 2017 13:11:57
Heard absolutely nothing on these two of late. Perhaps with the new management team now on board, its a case of different strokes for different folks.


2.) 20 Jun 2017 16:44:49
If memory serves it was Cellino keen on Avenatti and Monk keen on Buegelsdijk so I doubt with a new board and staff they are still on the radar, that said a move for Buegelsdijk could be a shrewd bit of business.

It seems Empoli have pulled out of the Bellusci deal but now Bologna are interested with figures of 2 to 3 Million quoted. My advice to Radz, whatever the figure, just pay it! Let's get rid.

too right. 2-3 mill is a right rip off!

Rumour has it that Chelsea are willing to let Kurt Zouma go on loan to get experience and build him up after injury. Worth a punt?

Doubt he would join

hate to sound negative but I seem to be watching Silvestre MK2 when Felix plays. A good shot stopper but weak commanding his area.

Spot on ok leodis, echo's my feelings. oh to have a Nigel Martyn in this team.

This shirt pulling (and grappling) in the box needs to be sorted out. Certainly it should stop. Certainly it needs to be punished but If you did that then there would be 3 or 4 penalties (minimum) per game? Maybe not the way to go but what if the punishment was a 15 minute sin bin with the corner/free kick taken again? As with all new rules there would be a flurry of sin bins initially. "Pundits" would discuss it for hours but after a while things would settle down. The game would go on and hopefully more attackers would score more goals, which after all is what we pay to see. As with all fair play initiatives it can only come in at, at least, Eufa level to make it even for all defenders home and abroad.

leodis

1.) 20 Sep 2017 14:03:20
even if more penalties were given initially players would soon learn not to do it and it would settle down but the game would become fairer and like you say definitely more goals from set pieces. It has to be in all leagues otherwise in Europe British teams would be at a severe disadvantage.

same thing with the diving problem alf

What was Borthwick Jackson doing last night? He was either playing with a heavy flu, Malaria or something, or both, OR he just did not want to be there. Everything he tried went wrong and pretty soon Burnley sussed it out and played down his side. Tc was right in subbing him (maybe earlier? ) and embarrasing to say he was outplayed in the position by a winger. Hopefully the look on his face, when he sat back on the bench, was anger at himself for letting himself down, for if he thinks he's degrading himself by turning out last night and not at Old Trafford then the boy is going nowhere. Maybe we should wrap him up, stick a stamp on him and post him back to Manchester asap. Sad, because I had high hopes for the lad when he joined, but maybe we have just seen why TC does not pick him anymore especially if he takes that attitude onto the training pitch.

leodis

1.) 20 Sep 2017 14:04:27
Wolves fans said he was hopeless when we signed him. Perhaps they were right.


2.) 20 Sep 2017 17:24:18
Leeds see enough in him to take the gamble on loan He's ring rusty TC and co either improve him or not Hopefully we are not creating another Dennis irwin for the Salford lot He was cast aside by Leeds remember Didn't have a bad career by all accounts


3.) 20 Sep 2017 17:47:03
Who's ring rusty? This sounds like a bit of flirting between BW and Speedy back in the day! MM

What a diamond we have unearthed in Shaughnessy. Positional play, interceptions, bringing the ball out and passes setting up attacks. All first class last night and belied the lad's age. On that form you can't drop him but how do you dislodge Coops and Pontus? that's a (good) headache to give TC. The lad must be proud of his nights work and to cap it off he could probably still get half price on the bus home.

1.) 20 Sep 2017 10:57:25
Didn't see the game personally, but great to read about another academy gem! Cheers leodis!


2.) 20 Sep 2017 14:06:27
I was thinking about this and maybe Shaughnessy would flourish as a defensive midfielder? He was supposed to be a midfielder apparently and i think he would have been more useful there (if we had the defensive cover, which we didn't) against Millwall than Phillips.


3.) 20 Sep 2017 16:27:48
Whose the academy gem shaughnassy didn't come through academy


4.) 20 Sep 2017 16:45:34
So composed in CB role looked like he was born into it. Supposedly we are short of CBs but over endowed with midfielders. I think CB for now with the knowledge that he can step forwrd if they all get injured at once.


5.) 20 Sep 2017 17:21:41
He was released by reading as a midfielder Someone at Leeds saw the potential Well done that man Course he's now learning from the best training with Pontus


 

 

14 Sep 2017 19:46:54
I know it's still September but looking at the fixture list there are some really cracking games coming up between now and December so Definitely by Christmas or future will be well mapped out. Can't see us bottling on the run in this year. Too many options. Quality in depth.

Maybe just the type of player we need at this point in time. With Ekuban and Grot showing potential and Roofe scoring goals we need someone who is grateful to get a game (when he does) and otherwise is happy as a benchwarmer.

She always says, it's better playing away and all who know her says she's better on the road; (and the grass and the sofa and the carpet. )

Think a more realistic figure for wood is 12-16 mil As for replacement I think, if not Roofe, then Saiz could do a job up front. Slippery as an eel and technically gifted. Not a line leader but get the ball in the box and I can see him putting it away.

Yes, I saw his face, on the bench, and hoped that he was pissed off with himself because if he thought he was too good to be here or too good to be subbed then the lad is in deep trouble and needs a counsellor before a trainer.

have to agree didn't set the world alight but what I did see gave me hope that if he is a good learner and we are patient he could be leading our line in a few years.

Saturday a good reality check for some of our newbies. At least they now know that some British teams do not give an inch of the park. Unlike on the Continent where a lot of teams give up the middle of the park. Hopefully they will learn and TC will drill into them how to combat the more physical teams.
