Some reports of signing Clarke-Salter from Chelsea after a season on loan at Coventry. Reports say he is highly rated but valued at 1.8m. Surely the price tag would be higher on about 5 or 6 already at the club. IMO about 80% of press talk is made up surprised we haven't been linked with De Paul for a while!

Indeed, we were linked with Phil Jones yesterday too. Why would we be bringing in either of those guys rather than promoting Cresswell (who is better than both of them) if we were looking to move on one of existing senior right CB’s.


2.) 09 Jun 2022 09:19:21
Jones? ! Might as well bring back Paul Butler! Cressy is the future Captain of this club. A good loan at a top champ side, then returns as Captain. The youth will take us forward!

So on the unthinkable happening in the next week how do you see us lining up next year?
I am sure we will lose Raphina Rodrigo and Phillips and hopefullyFirpo Roberts and Llorente maybe recouping £100m plus so need to spend wisely
GK Meslier Klaesson
FB. Ayling Drameh Hjelde.
CB Struik Cresswell Cooper Koch
Wing. Harrison James Summerville
Mid. Klich Dallas Foreshaw Bate Kenneth Mckinstry Shackleton
Forward. Bamford Gehardt Greenwood



Jan signing Joseph I have no idea on his progress.

If 49rs take over JM will remain and feel that having given him the role would need to give him a chance.

I think we need to develop the young players but prioritise Left back attacking midfield and striker.

CW - hopefully you could add Bogusz to the midfield list if he could be convinced that he’d get decent game time, as he can play CM, LM/ W, RM/ W and (crucially) CAM - and also has a cracking long range shot or direct free kick in his locker.

As for Mateo Joseph, he’s been developing well in the U18 and U23s and looks like he could possibly be moulded into a BamBam-type CF, being good with hold-up and link play, decent in the air and running the channels - but still one for the future rather than next season.

I’d agree we would need to prioritise experienced quality LB, CM/ CAM (someone like Sander Berge, who will probably be looking to leave the Blades having stayed this season for a crack at immediate return to the Prem. ) and CF.


2.) 19 May 2022 14:53:08
CW, the worrying thing for me is, if u look at those players that looks a decent championship squad, and who else might think that aswell and there will be no investment.


3.) 19 May 2022 15:29:46
Richie - if we go down Radz/ 49ers will get serious flack for not strengthening the squad this season - they would be very clear just how much more they would get if they failed to invest the money received for Raphinha and KP etc to ensure an immediate return. ‘Decent’ Championship squads do not gain promotion, unless they have an outstanding coach/ manager - and Marsch has a lot to do to convince me he falls into that category.

They would also know that going straight back up is the easiest way to do it, and the longer we were to stay down the more of their own money they’d need to invest to get back up - and the less they’d receive if they gave up and sold up.


4.) 19 May 2022 16:06:08
I am actually more worried about the quality of the squad if we stay up… the ownership clearly want to balance the books and trust in development… and KP and Raph def going this summer… without them we are ho-hum … and we’re already struggling to stay up with them in the squad.


5.) 19 May 2022 16:18:59
Remember talking if we go down. I think we almost have a strong enough team to bounce back then we would need to spend big then. We Won’t attract Prem players in the Championship Arenson is not going to play outside of top flight.
IMO We do not have a Pukki or Mitrovic. Bamford great at holding up but needs a lot of chances Greenwood is the closest IMO.


6.) 19 May 2022 16:24:11
Great post Class and I totally agree 👍👏.


7.) 19 May 2022 17:47:21
Fulham and Bournemouth straight back up. Mitrovic 43 goals, Solanke 29 goals. A Striker who can get over 20 is a big help in the Championship.


8.) 19 May 2022 17:57:14
Toronto - Radz etc have always been very clear that they would invest fairly heavily again this summer - basically to upgrade on/ replace some of those from Championship squad who are now getting a little older in the tooth etc. They didn’t buy in January as players of the required quality (eg Aaronson) were not on the market at the time, and they believed (rightly or wrongly) that the U23s would provide the necessary strength in depth to see us through the rest of this season, and in doing so would have the opportunity to further develop, with the purchase of any available players, who they viewed as being of roughly similar or lesser quality potential (though currently with greater experience) would block that development both this season and next.

So I am an Account Manager not a football manager but it may seem crazy but how about playing players in position!

GK Meslier
Full backs Ayling and Dallas (no real alternative)
Centre backs Koch Cresswell or Struik
Centre mid Foreshaw and Bate
Wingers James and Raphinha
Strikers. Bamford and Gelhardt
Forwards Bamford and Joffy

Probably get loads of flack for this but so many players out of sorts.

Cambridge Whitey no one can give you flack mate for trying, that what we need options it’s better then we have a the moment.

So Jesse not saying that he is still confident of staying up. Waffled around it.

Feel so full of despair and worried for the weekend.
Defensively look all over the place. Cooper not the most talented but pulls the strings Struik looked out of sorts and Firpo just not good enough Dallas works hard and Bill is a full back
Midfield Harrison And Klich not good enough and Foreshaw can't carry everyone. Koch is a defender !
James is a winger and Rodrigo is so low on confidence and wouldn't even have him in the bench atm
As confidence is low I think we may need to. Lbilster from U23s. Cresswell Summerville as well as Joffy could do with getting time. I know they are improven but the first team have almost lost before we kick off.

So Villa brought in Digne and Coutinho we brought in Matteo Joseph. That's one reason we are in this trouble.

1.) 10 Mar 2022 21:42:22
Missed out on freshening the squad up, improving the team and showing the players we have ambition. Triple whammy from the 3 stooges.


2.) 10 Mar 2022 22:12:04
Correct if those 3 stooges are AR, VO and MB. AK is an irrelevance.

This is one I would be very excited about but not that confident.

There is a lot of talk that negotiations were in place with him for next season but I presume that they would have one eye on if we kept slipping.

Pundits only really talk about the big teams though! Give it another full season and just be interesting to see which of the Big Six will give way to the Mighty Leeds.

{Ed014's Note - Spurs! 🤣

If I was to turn up at a Ferrari garage for a test drive they would want proof that I was serious. We should do the same.
They cannot afford him so why waste ours and their time.

Agree on Drameh. According to a mate Cardiff City fan. He was great going forward but a bit suspect defending. As said earlier ok in Championship but would be a problem in Prem.

If we stay up I think we need a big clear out.
Klich Llorente Firpo and Foreshaw would be a start. Happy for Ayling Koch and Cooper to stay but would hope that between Struik Creaswell Drameh and Hjelde could make them work for their place.
In Prem would need Left back centre mid attacking and defensive as well as replacement for Raphina (he’s going) . Main area is up front we need an out and out goal scorer and as much as I like Bamford he needs a lot of chances.
