Personally, I think it's a good thing that discussions with Bielsa are taking some time. Both parties need to be happy about what Bielsa 2 can deliver and what resources he needs. I hope Bielsa is making it very clear and he is getting very clear info back about what can Be done! This time if the summer doesn't deliver what he believes will happen I can see him walking before the season starts or early. I hope we get an announcement by Monday morning.

On the thread below about Rads, suppose really the questions are, is the club in a better place now than before he came? Answer: Yes . Has he made mistakes? Answer: Yes . What are the mistakes?
1/ Recruiting players who were not up to it
2/ Appointing managers who were not up to it (not including MB)
3/ Failing to strengthen in January. A golden opportunity which has cost him £170 million Premier League money and an additional £200 million on the value of the club. that's £370 million in total. Do not believe I can express properly in words acceptable to this site how big a mistake he made. Everyone could see what was needed. A striker and winger on loan would have done the job. Their wages for 4 months £1.5 million. He really really xxxxxx xx!

I love it when people say “ everyone could see what was needed” when obviously everyone couldn’t possibly Orta and Bielsa included! To me his biggest mistake is seemingly not managing Orta effectively or not ensuring he was managed effectively! At some stage the Director of football has to accept and take some responsibility.

Spaniard You'll know this. Am I right saying Casilla means "box" in Spanish? If so, only Leeds United can acquire a keeper from Real Madrid no less whose very last name he can't just stay in when it matters.

If all else fails how about this for a 2019/ 20 lineup?

BPF
Hosanna Halme Struijk Pearce
Diaz
Stevens McCalmont Boghusz Odour
Edmundson (Kun)

At least it shows that any of the so called first choices had better be on top form, or else.

Leo You omitted Gotts.

It would be interesting to see how that team could cope wouldn’t it, no space for Gotts or Davis?

In some of the reports we are actively looking to re-sign Harrison? Please God no. He put in one good cross for a goal and he becomes undroppable. Surely, at best his time with us has been, disappointing. As for his price and wages, City have more money than brains. Surely there are more skillfull. more direct, more lethal (Wilkes, O'Dowda, Lowe. ) wingers out there.

So Dack has been put in the shop windown by Mowbray - had a quiet end to the season. Perfect time to get a bid in of around 5-7 million.

For me all we need is a no. 10 (Dack) to replace Saiz. Pacey wingers and a new CB, in regards to everything else we should have enough.

I watched both Derby games and it was so open but time and time again; Klich, Hernandez et al. would pick the ball up in our half and just not have the legs to make the space count. I'd love to get Bowen in and I think 10 million would do it - pretty much a straight swap for Clarke if he goes.

Thoughts?

Wouldnt say no to Dack, at 5mill.

Well i have took my rose tinted glasses off and here is my realistic view of the coming summer. I do not expect early movement in the transfer window until some fringe players are moved on or reloaned. Yes i think we will sell at least two players from the squad. If Spurs are after Clarke he will go, why wouldn't he. Roofe, Pontus, KP, Klich, who knows any one of them could go. However these are all Aser assets so do not expect all the money raised to be put back into purchases.
We will spend 8-10mill on a player as we will have to to get a good striker or number 10 or winger. We will then buy a couple of lower league stars or premier flops then supplement with loans.
Positives are we have Wilks, Coyle, Pearce, Nessy, Denton to assess again. Also watched some of Sackos highlights from his season and he looks a lot more composed on the ball and i would love to see if Bubs could do anything with him as he still has the speed and energy to torment defenses.
Bubs will be here for next season as he still has the challenge of getting us up. Radz needs to back him as much as he can. Deals need to be done a lot quicker than they have been in the past and the fans once more need to get behind whoever pulls on the white shirt next season.
Said before everyone sells players, its who you replace them with. Squad of 26 will see us do well next season as long as they are not all U23s. Quietly optimistic and think we will do good business over the summer but maybe not as much as some would like.

As I have said time and again. I think we as a club are moving forward and I am looking forward to the new season like I looked forward to the 1999 season. Full of optimism.

I totally understand that players who have performed well for us this season may want to have a crack at a higher league.

But, experience tells me that until Biesla turned up only Henandez, Ayling and Pontus were actually performing at a decent standard.

Where was Phillips, Cooper and Roofe in season 2017-18?

I think Biesla has helped them achieve where they are now. And in my warped old-fashioned mind I think all those players deserve to show some loyalty to the coach and give him a full season of their new found ability.

If we fail again at the final hurdle then go with our blessings, but also know you will be even better than now, as you have had another 12 months coaching from one of the best coaches ever to work in Britain.

. and I don't care if Roofe winds down his contract in the meantime. He will be desperate to put himself in the shop window and we can only benefit from that, possibly to the time of £170m.

Here's what I think will happen we will lose our best players fairly quickly sign something mediocre and carry 4 deals up to the deadline and lose out at the last minute.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2019 10:41:23
Or maybe be told we have 20 million to spend not spend it and sell a player for 6 million and sign 1 for 7 million and keep the rest.

Whiteman look at the positive side, whilst you are boycotting the club and refusing to go to the games or spend any money in the shop you must be saving loads of money! You can have some cracking nights! Radz being Chairman is your 5 year savings plan, better than an isa!

Looking at the posts recently regarding the merits of recent owners. There is a wide selection of differing views on the standard of contribution made by these owners to the club. The yardstick for them all in a results based business is how well the team has done and by this measure Rads comes out head and shoulders above all the rest. He has also overhauled the club from top to bottom putting a proper infrastructure in place for a club of our size and stature. He is also a very good ambassador for the club. Despite appearing to not have the financial clout that we all wish he did have he has done well. The only real failings that have shown through, appear to be a lack of understanding of football or what is needed to get out of this league. This is demonstrated by him not investing in January when he had a golden opportunity . Maybe this is just a well because the current over all strength in the squad is just not there to maintain the club in the top flight.

No doubting what Radz has achieved 1970 but a lot of the ground work was put in place by the previous owner regarding the financial side of things. Yes he is a good ambassador sending us to play in a country that was/ is killing its own people to further his business interests. All owners will have failings and its ones own opinion as to how serious they are.
People have mentioned Cellino running down the academy and Radz turning it round. Clarke, Shacks, Pearce, etc were all here before Radz and Cellino only wanted to close Thorpe Arch when a training ground closer to ER was built. Has Radz reinstated all the staff Cellino let go, no.
So when comparing Radz with Cellino let's not look at it through rose tinted glasses. Fact is Brescia have been promoted to Serie A and we are still in championship. So one up Massimo there i think.

Interesting story in the press about Liverpool having an interest in Leif Davis and a quoted value of 4 million pounds. We signed him from Morecambe for an undisclosed fee but I'm sure I heard a figure of 400k mentioned, with add on clauses I'm sure.

Clubs like Liverpool will have lots of scouting lists and possible names and I'm sure he is just one that they have had a look at. It does say a lot about the way in which the transfer market is working. Talent picked up and passed on up the leagues.

Interesting dilema if we do get a proper offer. Realistically, will he get much game time next year for us? Our share of 4 million pays a few bills!

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2019 10:33:46
I say sell for 4 mill. He has potential but so have quite a few of our U23s. He is unproven and needs to fulfill that potential yet.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2019 10:47:49
My mate says they have got some talent in their Academy so he doesn't understand this story

Personally I would definitely accept an offer, as like you, I don't think he will get much game time and has a whole host of left backs in front of him
Douglas
Alioski
Brandi
Dallas
and reading Spanish's texts this season Odour is there or there about too
And coming back from loans are Denton and de Bock


I saw we are linked with a £2m move for Lowe of Portsmouth. "A goalscoring winger in League One". I do t understand why we would be forking out that sort of money when we have Wilks coming back from Doncaster and he is "A goalscoring winger in League One"
