wonder if Boadu and Baldock are training with the first team today

very interested to see what we pick vs Peterboro. Got to be along the lines of the first 11 I'd have thought. Chelsea certainly will be

I'm constantly baffled by our transfer activity and the lack of any apparent plan.

Miazga returning would be awesome, yet we've already signed a centreback and have several promising young centre backs who can cover. Meanwhile we have one genuine midfielder, fewer than we entered pre-season with, and only really one young midfielder who could realistically cover the position... and he hasn't particularly impressed on tour. This is while we still have squad bloat to get rid of, and tight finances to manage.

tbh, think most of it is paper talk. But utterly amazed if we didn't ask about Miazga, doesn't mean we have a hope in hell of getting him - but if Chelsea suddenly decide to play nice, of course we take him. 1st name on the teamsheet

Maneki Neko another moneyball signing id be happy with

33, hasn't started 20 league games in a season in the last 5 years.

In fact he's made less than 10 league starts in the last two seasons combined.

Not what I'd hope for in a partner for Rino. If we can get 30 decent performances out of him it would both surprising and great.



Good with free kicks though as I recall.

I'm sure we're trying for midfielders. We may have been holding out for Baker; obviously that hasn't happened. It's difficult to bring in quality players when you have no money. I'd say full credit to the club for staying clear of panic signings in our position (now watch Adam and McCormack come in and make a mockery of that!)

It's like in the good old days of Championship manager when I started with a League 2 team and tried to loan pretty much any Reserve player in the premier league for 0 fee. Sometimes ended up with a completely random squad.

I once took Yeovil town to the Premier League and scraped survival with a 37 year old Rivaldo pulling the strings.

Now that Miazga seems a done deal, wouldn’t be surprised to see all of Odimayo, Osho and Holmes sent out on loan. Bit harsh on McIntyre who will probably drop to fourth choice but it’s still a step forward for him from last season

Yes it is harsh on McIntyre. He’s gone from second choice to fourth choice. The other young CB’s will benefit from loans.

If we get Miazga then I think we'd be better off getting McIntyre L1 or 2 experience and using Osho or Odimayo as 4th choice back up given 4th choice is unlikely to play. Maybe 6 months then switch.

Moore, Morrison and Miazga all seem fairly robust and (touch wood) injury free.

Three strong centre backs but will they all play?
