Re: Favourite signing of the summer

I am probably mad but based on seeing him play over a number of years, especially when he was younger I have gone for Adam. I can see that for one season only he could be like another Ian Harte. I am hoping that he can help the younger players with his experience and have a few games where he is the...

Re: Rumour: Leo Bonatini

Apparently the player has filmed himself at Gigg Lane the home of Bury. That just doesn’t make sense.

Re: Where will we finish?

As it stands 22nd.

A new striker, plus a central midfielder could mean 16th to 20th.

Saying that, I wouldn't be surprised if we did a Norwich and Nova scores 25+ goals. There are so many unknowns for me but I do believe we have 4 very solid central defenders and you can never have too many of them.

Re: SPECULATION - Danny Williams

No, plus he'd want too much money.

What is it with wanting old players back?

Re: Pre season tour

I couldn’t get to the game, so watched it on the 5th stand app. Overall I thought we played really well. Adams looked good on the ball and it was a shame a about Walker’s error for their 4th. The commentary was obviously biased, although they did pay us 1 or 2 compliments. I think Chelsea might stru...

Re: Pre season tour

Been impressed by us in the first half. Not sure you can blame Virgínia for either goal tbh. Negative, is Blackett’s injury as not much cover at LB.

Looks like Hugill will be signing for QPR. He’ll be a good signing for them. Not sure how well Barnsley, Millwall and Wigan etc. have strengthened their squads.

Re: Rumour: Leo Bonatini

This could be a really good signing. I remember seeing him play for Wolves and he looked like a decent/clever striker to me. Saying that I think Wolves fans moaned when they signed him permanently. Gomes being Portuguese could also help if the lad has lost his confidence, as there won’t be any langu...

Re: CONFIMRED - Matt Miazga

Very happy with this signing. If I could have chosen one of last season’s loan signings to come back it would have been Miazga.

Well done to PTR for getting it right about Ejaria. It was a shame about Oliveira though.

Hoping that we can now bring in a striker asap.

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

I couldn’t see this happening in a million years. I don’t dislike the player but I just believed that we would stay well clear of this type of signing. In saying that a 1 year contract is sensible and many years ago he was class. Maybe Howe etc. are trying to make sure that we don’t get relegated th...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I appreciate that this is off track but I have just been watching highlights of the 2011/12 Championship winning team on YouTube and I was surprised at how good that team was. At the time I think I always compared them to the 2005/06 team and I didn’t give them the credit they deserved. Seeing all o...

Re: Rival Watch

If we are talking about our rivals in the division, I don’t think we need to worry about Cardiff or Fulham.

Looking at who Wigan, Charlton, Millwall and Barnsley are signing might be more appropriate.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

We'll almost certainly get some players in this summer. I wouldn't pick a team and put Olise in a defensive CM midfield position, because I don't think it will ever get as far as needing to do that I'd like to see Richards get some game time as a left mid/winger. I think he could do a better job th...

Re: Speculation: Ethan Amapadu

With JT at Villa I see no chance of this happening. However, you’d think that he’d get more games for us than he would for Villa.

I would still prefer Baker and Miazga tbh.

Re: Will Gomes stay?

I reckon he'll stay but you never know he could end up going to Sheff Wed.

I know they have similar problems to us but they probably have a better squad of players for him to work with. Don't really see this happening but nothing would surprise me in football.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Blackett has just come off a really good season, and we can always play one of the right backs on the left, Yiadom and Gunter both look comfortable there. If we bring in a centre back or Osho steps up, then McIntyre also becomes an option there. If we don't sign another central midfielder, and prob...
