Amiri has changed his mind again and has after all rejected the chance to come to sunny Yorkshire.

Apparently according to Dan on the square ball it’s stalled because his wife is having a child and wants to check Yorkshire out first.


2.) 26 Aug 2023 08:05:07
If that’s the case dIL, then no one can complain. He will come for sure then, as Yorkshire is better than most places in Germany!

We’ve apparently won “the race” to sign Julian Quinones. If this is our big striker signing then sack Victor now and announce relegation ?.

You seen him play Rambo or just saying that because you've never heard of him?
I had never heard of Raphinha until we signed him and we made a £38 million profit out of him!


2.) 30 Jul 2022 04:58:39
Rambo We aren't getting relegated. Top 14 for us.


3.) 30 Jul 2022 05:03:55
No tbf I’ve never seen him play, hardly a marquee signing though is it? 14 goals in the Mexican league last season. If he’s a squad player then fine but we need s more established no.9 if we’re to avoid going down.
Personally I’d heard of Raphi but this bloke is a complete mystery.


4.) 30 Jul 2022 08:14:49
I would say he is a squad player but wouldn’t surprise me if that’s it as far as strikers are concerned.
Not sure we have enough goals in us still. Time will tell.


5.) 30 Jul 2022 08:29:29
He looks OK to be fair just because the guy in a weaker league doesn't make him bad player it's still football same rules when you play wi better players it makes a better player mot trust jesse and staff.


6.) 30 Jul 2022 08:58:56
This is one that Jesse has been following for a while, and would seemingly fit the style of play JM is gearing us up to play. TBH, I can see a scenario where Joffy is our lead striker before the season ends, and potentially our top scorer. No relegation battle this year.


7.) 30 Jul 2022 09:35:51
Well I admire all of your optimism! Looking at our squad at this time I struggle to see where we’re stronger than last year, possibly CM but that depends how the new guys settle. If we sign a decent striker I’ll be happy. Would also like Charlie Taylor back but I know a lot of people don’t agree with that one.


8.) 30 Jul 2022 14:40:45
I think defensively we will be a lot better this season, with a change of tactics being a contributing factor (more responsible and less gung ho) . Kristensen is an improvement on Ayling. And Koch/ Llorente are starting to look fairly assured together at CB. I have no doubt we won't concede anywhere near as many as last season.

In midfield I think we've bought particularly well and I'd argue we are much better as a unit there. Roca and Adams as pivot players is imo an improvement on Phillips and Forshaw for the simple reason that Phillips missed half the season last year, so really it's probably more apt to make the comparison between Roca/ Adams and Forshaw/ Klich, which in that sense it's a vast improvement on last season. Aaronson looks to be settling well and his creativity and contributions will increase as the season goes, I have no doubt. Obviously Raph is a big loss and I'm not going to say Sinisterra is a better player, although he does look very tricky. He has impressed in Eredivisie though and he has the makings of a strong replacement, albeit a level below Raph currently. Harrison I expect to go from strength to strength this season and find more consistency under more disciplined tactics.

Bamford and Joffy as well as Greenwood coming to fruition this season looks like a strong possibility and could really be a determining factor in how well we play attacking wise this season. Greenwood and Joffy's maturation over the course of this season could have a massive impact.

LB obviously a main concern and I feel we need to be defensively resolute moreso than attacking maestros. We have goals in the team at present and adding a few more on last seasons goal tally would be of massive benefit, but conceding less would be the biggest difference maker to last season.

LB wpuld be my priority while adding another CF would be icing on the cake.

I think a few of the more negative posters will be surprised this coming season. I have every optimism in the world we can attain a respectable league position with our current squad (obviously accounting for us signing a new LB) .

MJ has to start on Saturday! Bamford is going through a drought and his droughts are like a Games of Thrones Winter, we can’t afford to carry him in next 6 games!
Toughen up Farke and make the difficult call!

Rambo_Rhys

1.) 02 Apr 2024 16:47:26
Agreed Rambo . but will DF?


2.) 02 Apr 2024 17:10:11
That call should have been made at the start of the season!


3.) 02 Apr 2024 17:37:19
Rambo Difficult you say? Respectfully, cinch.


4.) 02 Apr 2024 17:56:53
Bamford was injured for the first half of the season Triangle.


5.) 02 Apr 2024 18:17:41
Let’s be honest lads, it’s not really that hard a decision is it? I mean he looks like one of those litter pickers ambling around the beach looking for a fiver! Then he thinks he’s seen one and then tries to run in the sand! When he missed that sitter and he ended up in the net he looked around like he had just woken up and lost his beach ball! MJ for me with Piroe as back up for the last six games. MJ will score and he will be the difference between automatic and play offs ✊✊.


6.) 02 Apr 2024 22:35:19
He's a mental midget. When confidence is high he's fine and can play well. After a bad miss or in high pressure games he crumbles.

I think it would be a good idea to start MJ now tbh considering last couple of games for Paddy. MJ looks to be champing at the bit and it's just the kind of vigour and energy we need for these last lot of games.


7.) 03 Apr 2024 00:31:36
We can all sit here and pick the team without consequences. However, despite PB last couple of games, he has been intrinsic to our unbeaten run…. do we need to change the winning formula? It’s working as it is, is it not?

PB has had two woeful games, yes, but let’s be honest Amps was a disaster v Watford, as was most of the team. I wouldn’t advocate dropping DJ or AG, but they have both been really off it for a few weeks now.

Leave alone in my opinion…it was only a couple of weeks ago folks were outraged at the thought of dropping PB (except Aus, who I think would play with 10 if necessary! …probably already thinks we are! )


8.) 03 Apr 2024 03:24:57
100% bermo. Nah. 1000%.


9.) 03 Apr 2024 09:33:41
The issue I have Ani is that, while we aren't losing games, we could be making the games easier on ourselves without Paddy's missed chance (s)

I don't think sticking with the same formula of playing Bamford just in case he has a good game is the route to go. Historically, he's shown that once he loses confidence it takes a while to gain back and we don't have that time to go through the process.

MJ is ready to play imo. His energy alone eclipsed Paddy's in the last two games and we need that desperately right now. Paddy has looked disinterested once his game isn't going right and he loses the auxiliary functions to his game. Not that I don't think he's a team player, he is, but he overthinks about his own performance and it effects how he plays for the team. Joseph, in what little game time he's had has shown confidence and energy. Defending from the front, running down defenders, running long balls down, running between the lines and some smart movement in the box. Plus, it does appear he knows where the net is (3 goals at senior level in 288mins - goal every 96 mins) . I don't think it's a risk at all.

We need to put games to bed by being more clinical. Paddy isn't meeting that requirement atm so we need to change it to take try to take a small amount self imposed of pressure off.

MJ to start, for me.


10.) 03 Apr 2024 21:17:08
Looks like we all agree (bar Ani) that MJ should start at weekend. Personally I don’t think Farke will drop him, but he should.
Ani, I get what you’re saying about not changing a winning team but let’s be honest, we haven’t been playing well at all and from I’ve seen Bamford has been a big part of that, yes he’s missed a few big chances but more importantly for me his touch/ link up has been truly horrible. He’s not confident, so instead of naturally controlling the ball he’s concentrating too hard and it’s bouncing off him. There’s no room for sentiment here, do him a favour and take him out of the spot light for a bit.


11.) 03 Apr 2024 21:20:08
I’ve just read Dills reply, we clearly see the game very similarly, admittedly you make my point better than I do!


12.) 04 Apr 2024 05:06:08
What Dill said, excellent post ?.


 

 

01 Feb 2024 06:36:17
A lot of people (myself inc) blamed Radz for our demise last few years but realistically who do you think influenced the appointment of Ted Lasso and the signings of his useless Yankee counterparts? Same ones who are leaving us without a single RB in our squad!

Rambo_Rhys

1.) 01 Feb 2024 08:38:24
It’s a problem. I had my doubts about 49. Simply because they are yanks and don’t understand football let alone English football. I was hoping their astute business acumen would save the day but I think it’s going to take them a few years to realise to make money you need to invest and be in the prem league.
Yes, they inherited a mess but they are missing their first chance to further improve.

See Ryan Edmondson has moved to Australia! Genuinely thought this lad was the next big thing to come through the academy, just goes to show how development can change. Let’s hope that lad City have just stolen from us has a similar career.

Rambo_Rhys

1.) 26 Jan 2024 08:30:20
He be gutted swapping Yorkshire for Australia. Poor guy.


2.) 26 Jan 2024 12:21:50
?? poor old boy, what kind of a life is that for a 22yo. Strong strong big lad.


3.) 26 Jan 2024 14:19:16
Ryan scored a lot of goals in youth football but as he approached men's football his progression fell away.
I think sometimes in youth team a physically mature lad with a good shot on him can deceive a bit.
When they go into first team football everyone is that physical and they find there shot power is negated by better keepers.
Bielsa said he was not doing the things that were asked of him when asked about him and whether he was going to be in the first team.


4.) 26 Jan 2024 18:26:09
Indeed Ben. It’s a common phenomenon. The big lads being picked up by scouts, when you know that technically speaking, skill wise, and mentally, there are many better players in your squad. They then go on to do nowt. That was very much the Leeds way for too long.


 

 

21 Jan 2024 13:57:29
Just noticed Gnoto isn’t in the squad, is he off? Not fussed if he is tbh.

Rambo_Rhys

1.) 21 Jan 2024 14:05:40
Hip flexor.


2.) 21 Jan 2024 14:09:07
Reckon he's gone Rambo, and like you no loss only want committed players.


3.) 21 Jan 2024 14:14:44
Wet Spam told 49ers that he has a Hip Flexor. Deadline Day is too close to risk him!


4.) 21 Jan 2024 14:27:47
What ??? says. It's his "hip flexor".


5.) 21 Jan 2024 15:57:42
Nah just another bs rumour.

Shock horror! We were crap AGAIN! Farke out for me, he’s a 1 trick pony. Get Cooper in.

1.) 30 Dec 2023 08:07:28
Liam or Yvette?


2.) 30 Dec 2023 10:25:03
Farke deserves a Jan window to get some profiles that fit his " system ' . a CAM most definitely.


3.) 30 Dec 2023 14:50:20
Totally agree there Baz. He hasn’t been given all the tools yet.

That’s true Aus, Farke would probably give Haaland a shift at RB if he signed.

Why are we being so strongly linked with CB’s? That’s not what’s needed! We need RB/ LB and a CAM!

I thought you only received compensation if the player signs a pre-contract? If he’s released at the end of his contract we’d get nothing.

Personally I think Sini could be the difference between us going up or not. Would much rather sell Gnoto. Sini is the only winger we have that has any end product.

Not seen much of him but he’s got decent pedigree in this league and he’s actually a RB so happy with him.
