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

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.

If, we are gambling on promotion with Qatari money then does that mean Gayle is back on the table?

leodis

1.) 04 Jul 2019 14:39:50
Stop it now

I am unable to concentrate now you have placed that seed of a thought in my mind

Forget replacing Saiz

Use the money on a "Year of Gayle"

The opposition wouldn't be double teaming our No10, they would be too worried about conceding goals.

Roberts has already sent in a good application form, last year. And the previous year, when Wood was our lone striker, Roofe equipped himself well in various midfield roles. And now that Biesla is buying up wingers by the dozen, Henandez might find it's his only way in to the side.


2.) 04 Jul 2019 17:30:40
I wouldn't put too much hope in this Qatari idea.


3.) 04 Jul 2019 20:38:03
But Alf, hope is all I have.

Looks like Sunjic could take over from KP But if he stays. What a pair in midfield!

leodis

1.) 03 Jul 2019 23:20:00
Would love them both to here next season. Would have a formidable midfield then.


 

 

21 Jun 2019 17:19:36
New big deal in the offing to keep Roofe. 28 goals in 110 starts. Not my definition of prolific. Just saying.

leodis

1.) 21 Jun 2019 19:12:53
For most of those games he wasn't played as a striker so it's a little deceptive just looking at the numbers.


2.) 21 Jun 2019 19:22:55

3.) 21 Jun 2019 21:39:39
I can see both viewpoints. He can certainly score when given the chance to play up top. However he is injury prone, and I question whether he is worth 30K a week. If we give him that kind of money then Bamford, Casilla, Roofe and even o'Kane together cost more than 100K a week! .

The problem is right now that Bamford is on far more than Roofe, and Roofe is perfectly right to say hang on I'm worth far more than him. I don't know if that works for us. Discussing talks but also letting it be known he is available for the right price (and only the right price mind) is the way to go (my feeling that would be 10m) .

I'd be more agreeable to the new deal if i knew for sure we were offsetting Casilla's wage.


4.) 24 Jun 2019 10:57:58
Again the blame lies at the feet of the "intelligent" money men. Did they not, for one minute, stop to consider that if they gave Bamford 30k somebody somewhere would put there hand up and say, Hang on a minute. Roofes hand is made even more stronger by the lack of Bamford firepower.

We let James slip thro our fingers now it looks like we are doing the same with O'Dowda. Not only is he a skillfull winger with a peach of a left foot he is also desperate to join.

leodis

1.) 17 Jul 2019 17:37:47
No James was rads lack of funds or caring he wants to make money on the cheap like Bates needs to speculate to accumulate.


2.) 17 Jul 2019 18:06:07
Leodis, I agree on O'Dowda, why Bielsa/ Orta keep chasing Kent/ Wilson, who obviously do not want to be here, when he is available and apparently very keen to come here is totally beyond me.

Given that Clarke will not be with usnext season and it would seem unlikely that Harrison will be, it's not like bringing in another winger on a permanent contract would blocking McCarron's progression, however big their hopes are for the lad. I'd also have thought that even (in time) if Odour and Hosanna prove to be good enough for the first team, they seem more likely to be decent wing-backs, rather than pure wingers, though Spanish and others may have better knowledge on this.


 

 

17 Jul 2019 14:21:03
Why oh why are we chasing another winger when we clearly in desperate need of a CB. Coops again with a League2 sliding tackle in the box. On another day, red card. More evidence. We need a CB.
There are quite a few out there who are either out of contract or in their last year so let's see some progress.

leodis

1.) 17 Jul 2019 14:51:26
coops been the same for years if he is the answer promotion ain't the question back up at best.


2.) 17 Jul 2019 15:13:33
Is this de Ja vue we were all crying out for a striker and CB last summer as well and this was before pontus leaving. look some here are pinning there Hope's on U23 squad stepping up. Maybe we are wrong and the U23s is a bottomless pit of talent waiting to set the league alight.


3.) 17 Jul 2019 16:28:43
We need to be looking for an old head, big voice CB. The u23s are good but need schooling on the pitch. On the traing pitch is okay but the first time you have your mate an 8foot, 18 stone giant telling you, you tend to remember.


 

 

11 Jul 2019 16:10:08
Maybe we do not want Cahill? but there are still many CBs out there who could not only do a job but bring on the likes of White and Struijk. For instance the German Schwaab, or even Caceres or Burdisso all with top experience and all free agents. For a small fee there is Yoshida and Ayala both ending contracts next year. Any of these would be good for a year or two by which time our kids would be a year or two older and wiser.

leodis

1.) 11 Jul 2019 19:12:57
Great shout on Ayala Leo, can’t stand him but that’s probably because he always looks a threat against us.


 

 

11 Jul 2019 11:00:25
Would love to see Cahill bolster our back four but seriously, 100k per week that would be one hell of a drop. Just hope he doesn't have a big mortgage to pay.

leodis

1.) 11 Jul 2019 12:01:41
Leo We'd probably go as high as £35k a week for him with a significant promotion bonus provided he played a high percentage of league games. Would be a very good signing.


2.) 11 Jul 2019 12:03:39
Noises coming from Leeds that they not even considered cahill. Said it before that I don't think they looking at a new centre back, white was brought in so that pontus could go. Think we will stick with what we have got and use the U23 players as back up. If Phillips leaves and Roofe, then we will probably look at replacements. If villa offer anywhere near £20 million for Phillips he will be gone, but personally anything over £15 million Radzs will well him!


3.) 11 Jul 2019 12:33:53
Would like to see Diego Costa, don’t like him much but would get goals, and we will need them,


4.) 11 Jul 2019 12:36:12
We’ve denied it, by all accounts. Shame. He could’ve done a reet job!


5.) 11 Jul 2019 14:32:15
It would be good but never going to happen. Expect a loan signing from Spurs (Carter Vickers) or Arsenal (Bielek)


 

 

10 Jul 2019 20:00:02
Forget all the ins and outs My big question mark for the next season is - Will Marcelo speak english?

leodis

1.) 10 Jul 2019 20:37:25
Blubby Hell. I was thinking the same thing the other day, while having a dump!


2.) 10 Jul 2019 20:43:47
Hope not to be honest. Love his querky, interpreted, double act pre and post match interviews featuring the pleasant Spanish inbetweener chap.

Stubborn or Bloody Minded, either way it's a trait that is, to some, a strength but also a weakness in the man. He is the boss so you cannot argue but the get rid at all costs is costing us a derisory 5.5mill for a 8/ 10 mill player.

IF the situation has broken down irretrevably the so be it. My one thought on this is that the bosses word is final however if you cannot harvest such passion (which often comes with a hot head and a fiery tongue) you are in danger in fielding a team with no passion. A team with no (controlled) aggression and ultimately a team with no stand up and be counted leaders. A team of yes men. Quite rightly if he is a cancer in the dressing room then he should be removed however a, good, manager should not let it get to that. If the situation had been simmering for some while then it beggars belief why we let Halme go? Surely his height would have been invaluable in times of need if we were to go 5 across the back. Still there is time, out there somewhere must be a Pontus clone to instill grit in the back line.

Sunjic is a shoe in for a DM but also has the passing ability to start attacks and even step in for a No 10 if needed, but first, get a CB!
