And that solves his reported inability to pass how?

Yiadom passes, RB hits it long


Keeps the opposition guessing





(I should be manager)

This is all very surreal at the moment and i wouldn't be surprised if we move a few players on tomorrow before the deadline. I would guess that either Barrow, Meite or Loader would be the ones most sought after.
Meite would be in high demand after scoring again on Saturday, Barrow has been mentioned a few times now and i think Loader may go to Wolves.
I wouldn't be to fussed with either Barrow or Loader moving on, especially if we can get some decent money and clauses put in with the Loader deal. Meite is a different story, i still think he has a lot to offer the team and his aggression and explosive style would be missed.

Courtney Friday has been on the money this summer and reporting we are now considering buying Ejaria. Blimey. We are going to have some squad but the crucial word in all of this is the ‘g’ word. Will they gel?

Are bookies ever wrong?

We are the firm favourites to get relegated.

They don’t have a clue especially giving odds when it comes to politics. Their odds will start to change if we start winning games. Looking at this squad it really should be top six if Gomes can get them to play as a team. Lots of egos in there though.

I lumped on us at 28/1 to get promoted last night. Clearly it’s not likely but we all know that championship success is not determined in the first few months of the season, so who knows what may happen if the new signings gel.

Yep. All the pieces to the puzzle will be there (especially if we end up getting Ejaria), just have to fit them together properly. Bedding in multiple new players at the same time could be a challenge but if they all do what they are supposed to do on the pitch after they get settled this could be a very good team this season.

Aren’t the odds a function of where the money is going ?
Given the number of big northern clubs with fans who do nothing but drink and bet when not down the pit yiu’d Think there is much more money going on those teams than there is on our club with it’s IT / graphic design based fans who spend all their money on designer coffee and beard wax and would no more place a bet than eat mushy peas.

No left back = No top table finish.

If we can get a fee for

Nova
Loader

Some how get rid of

Baldock
Gunter
McCleary
Popa

And Sign

Ejaria

That would leave us in a great position. Left back is a week spot though with Obits unlikely to be the same, Blackett with obvious deficiencies and Richards just not good enough but week probably need to struggle through with those this season.

Barrow and Meite won't be going anywhere. The squad is there now and they want to be a part of it. We wouldn't sell them anyway.

They go where the money is going to an extent but will be influenced by other factors including current form, changes in personnel including management and usage of beard wax.

Some rumours that we have accepted an offer for Barrow and that Loader to Wolves is looking more likely. But it's deadline day so who knows what is true.

Gunter looks to be leaving prob on loan but we are pushing for a sale.

So Gomes mentioned that it will be 4 or 5 U23 academy players in and around the team.

Who we thinking?

Loader
Olise
McIntyre
Barrett
Richards/Howe?

I dont think hes counting Rinomhota.
