Snowflake RoyalSCIAG Heard from an immediate family member of a current first team squad member. Apparently when the news broke Liam Moore stood up as captain in the dressing room and asked why we were signing him given Miazga was on the way and McIntyre and Osho had done well in pre-season. Gomes said he was just as confused and didn't know we'd signed him until it was on the club website.
I encourage your scepticism- it's entirely possible that:
- Gomes was lying to spare the players' feelings
- Either the player or family member lied before it got to me
- I am lying now
Not sure I agree Osho did well in pre-season tbh. Looked pretty clumsy to me.
Agree Miazga and Morrison is a surprise given McIntyre did well. Especially with us still to bring in a proper midfielder who can play 90 minutes regularly.
But three senior CBs and a young player breaking through isn't exactly over stocked.. just looks it compared to a lot of our other options
Yeh was gonna say. Osho is nowhere near the first team, so this is clearly bollocks. Also was Miazga "on his way" when Morrison signed? I think the more likely scenario is that it looked like Miazga wasn't going to happen, we signed Morrison, then Miazga became available and it was too good an opportunity to miss. Or we just felt we needed two more senior CBs, which is just as likely tbf.
