Happy with the two Inter names bandied about. Both come highly recommended but both are young enough to not demand a starting berth every week. If we are to start playing three at the back then Struijk and Nolan should complement White and Cooper perfectly. If Nolan has the same ice cool attributes as White he will be a capture indeed.

Yep, totally agree Leodis. White looks so confident with the ball at his feet, reminded me of Norman Hunter! Too soon tho, but just my first impression.


2.) 05 Aug 2019 16:20:06
More like a little Paul Madeley Bright.


3.) 05 Aug 2019 21:41:25
That’s the highest accolade there is Bige!

Please, please, please, let this Nolan* rumour be true.
*PS or pretty much any other decent CB.

We, supposedly, are interested in Striker Caicedo in Italy. 15goals in 2 seasons kind off says it all. What we have is way better than that. End of.

Leo This is why it's not easy to improve on what you have unless you spend big which we simply can't do. It's always about value, at least at this level. I believe Edmondson will contribute this season but the spine of the defence is a concern.


2.) 24 Jul 2019 00:33:50
Not many decent strikers available to be fair, maybe Hugill. I have faith that Edmo will do the job if he gets the chance.


3.) 24 Jul 2019 10:31:57
What’s going on here!? This is the 3rd time I’ve agreed with you George!


4.) 24 Jul 2019 16:03:00
Yes George the only panic point I am creeping up on is Centre Back.

Samu gone to Girona. Do we not play them 29 July?

leodis

1.) 18 Jul 2019 15:33:02
Indeed. Well, actually 27th isn't it. And Girona also play Derby two days previously, so it will be interesting which of those matches features the greater proportion of Girona's first team - of course there could be a mixture for both, and I guess Said could play in either.

Likewise, it will be very interesting to see which of our players are there and which in Sardinia. Presumably Bielsa will want his likely starters for Brizzle playing together, but we can only guess whether he will choose to take them to Sardinia or Tad.

Of the half dozen names being bandied about for CB I have no preference I do however prefer that any move is swift and decisive. Too much have we shilly-shallied allowing the enemy to jump in and beat us. Let us quietly decide our target (s) and quietly negotiate and loudly anounce our new signing.

leodis

1.) 10 Jul 2019 08:13:51
Really think white is his replacement, we were short on cover even with pontus . Doesn't seem much rush to bring someone in for bielsa's pre-season. Would not be surprised with no one coming in, but using what players we have. Not learnt much from last season!


2.) 10 Jul 2019 10:38:47
Mezzer I am sadly afraid you may be only too right. Surely MB can see we need a Rock at the back an old head to bring on the kids and mop up Coopers mistakes. Williams, Cahill, etc. There are a few out there. Just hoping right now that White is the real deal from day One.


3.) 10 Jul 2019 15:05:12
I could see White talking over from Phillips. In effect White is an upgrade/ replacement on Diaz.


4.) 10 Jul 2019 17:40:37
I really can only see us getting some more players in as replacements for Phillips and Roofe, don't think despite all the rumours that we will sign another centre half. Bielsa likes his small squad of players so we were told, so can't believe anything will be different. The rush of players we got in last week was done with the Knowledge that Bielsa was letting Pontus to (IMO) . Can't wait for the season to start now, was expecting good things this season after coming so close last time, but as usual we operate like it's pantomime season. We always seem to go two steps forward then call in a big hole.


5.) 10 Jul 2019 18:18:37
Or even fall in a big hole.

Am I right in thinking that this 45mill warchest for next year merely covers the players we already have and are committed to?

leodis

1.) 25 Feb 2020 20:12:06
That’s what I thought. 🤔🤫😬.


2.) 25 Feb 2020 20:41:18
Costa, Harrison and JKA about takes it all. maybe afford Meslier as well.


3.) 25 Feb 2020 21:07:30
TBH. I wouldn’t have any off the outfield players. Better out there when we go up would want too come too us.

If Man City are banned from Europe, can we apply for their place. At least we would sell our allocation.

leodis

 

 

16 Feb 2020 11:54:44
Just thinking out loud. In view of Manchester City's problems how does a QSI takeover greatly benefit us? If we are sailing close to ffp limits as it is how does having billions really affect our finances if you cannot really spend it.

leodis

1.) 16 Feb 2020 12:57:29
In the Championship a wealthy owner will not be able to buy a team but they can invest in the infrastructure which would improve revenue and increase the ability to spend it.


2.) 16 Feb 2020 20:03:22
If we invest heavily they can afford £50m for the fine and we probably wouldn't be in Europe for 2 years anyway so who cares?


3.) 16 Feb 2020 20:45:14
What do you mean by the infrastructure Notts?
I mean how will revenue be increased?
Not having a pop just don’t how that will happen.

Reading the last few posts it seems self evident that radical surgery is required. Doubt whether that is in Bielsas ethos. Again one of hhis failings comes to the fore. I only ask that in view of such evident evidence then how can he remain so fixed, so stubborn, if only ego stops him. I think the best we can wish for, rather than 4 changes is a compromise of possibly two. I do think that, as much as personnell changes we need a Winston Churchill to give them an heroic speech and a Brian Clough to give them a kick up the backside.
It spoke volumes to me when Ayling being asked by Bryn Law what is needed to change, he just looked excasperated and with a shrug of the shoulders said "I don't know, just keep trying".

Did we have to play in Blue yesterday? White shirts still in the wash?

He would love to come back. It would make sense financially. He could live back at home and nip home for lunch and let the dog out. What's not to like.

Long term (or even short term) I think Bowen would have greater impact, knocking in a few but better still setting up far more.

Bielsa has made a rod for his own back, with the form dip and the resultant pressure is is probably seen as unfair to bring on a "kid" to turn the game around. So more and more unlikely and more and more a fall back on the old troops. blooding newbies should be done in more of a nothing game, when we are 4-0 up, though not many of those around at the moment. Maybe tonight and we see Huggins with the instructions "just go out and enjoy yourself" - I wish.

Would still like to see Messlier but I fear you are right. Hope we don't see Big Kev as that means Bam Bam has got a couple. Douglas had a run out in the U23s so maybe in contention. Up top Roberts? if not try Shacks/ Boguszh/ Mcalmont? My other fear is "same team as before lads" with all the usual suspects lined up.

Agree Brighty. I have been impressed by Huggins whenever I have seen him. Two good feet, tricky and keeps his head up. Mind you there are a few out there who have impressed. IF we don't go up and IF our team is dismantled I am not too worried for we seem to have players ready to step up. I am only annoyed that we have not taken advantage of the loan market and sent them out for the next level of competition. U23s is one thing but playing in a league team is quite another.
