Gauld is a no brainer for me and hopefully we can get the best out of him if he signs here. 

Dewsbury-Hall would be good option in a midfield role next Travis and Buckley in midfield 3 but for me we need a good centre midfielder who has the defensive attributes to protect the back 4 

Why would he be a no brainer? Have you seen a fair bit of him? What kind of player is he?

very highly rated a few years ago and thats where Sporting Lisbon signed him. describe has the Scottish Messi I believe

He is a number 10 player and would add creative spark to our play and thats what we lack last season. 

Plenty of Clips online to view thats show his talent over the past 6 years. Please take a look

None of what you said is reason enough to think signing Ryan Gauld is a no brainer

Maybe that's your opinion but for me it's just the player we need. Someone with creative spark which we lack for a couple of seasons under Mowbray. If we are going to play the way Mowbray wants then we need some creative in midfield whether its left winger or number 10 player or centre midfielder. 

Cant rely on just Buckley to do this and Rothwell looks like he is likely to going.

He's no more lightweight than Elliott or Dolan or Armstrong.

He's a no brainer cause he is one of those ruffians from north of the border and we all know they lack brains up there from listening to their leader Ms Trout pout her drivel. He's ginger, wears a skirt, plays with his caber and will help the ladies team out nicely 😂😂

I don't see how him and sack would play together and being honest we need a CM not a AMC.  Guess TM will shunt him out wide or perhaps full back, or a false 9, but he is a hole player.

It's unrealistic because any player with ambition and other options will look at our form last season, the fact the manager was somehow not sacked and is still here and the general circus like nature of the club and think why? We haven't challenged for the play off places since we were relegated from the PL. 

This strikes me as similiar to previous links like Adam Maher, than sound great, but are very unlikely to happen. More leaked to keep fans who don't know better happy.

Absoloutely this.  We need a 6ft 4 Nzonzi type lad in the middle to give us a bit if presence.  Too many small, light weight players as it is. 

They'll never sign anybody who might stand there and look intimidating to the manager or other players.

He doesn't want leaders, only followers.

As for this Gauld lad i think i'd probably rather sign another highly rated Prem loanee. At least they can be sent back if it doesn't work. Iv'e zero point zero faith in this management doffing out  2 or 3 year contracts to anybody outside of a few we already have.

I’m surprised that people are not more keen on Ryan Guald. I’ve followed his career loosely albeit from a far since he shot onto the scene at Dundee way back when. He struggled at Sporting but even then showed glimpses of what he could do. He’s come into his own at Farenese and think has 10 goals and 7 assists in a team that has struggled all season. 
 

A player who I would compare him too is Rochina. A player I believe this club grossly misused. We should of built our entire team around him. The one issue was for rochina was his consistency, which he seems to have found after he left rovers, and grew with experience. Gauld now seems to be at that stage where he has the consistency to match his talent. I’ve no doubts he would be one of the best creative players in the championship, as a wide man or and attacking midfield. I very much doubt we will get him. There is prem and champ interest and I can’t see us being able to match the wages others are offering. But don’t get it twisted. He’d be a massive coup.

The close season so far, has the stench of that window under Bowyer where we offloaded all our decent players and signed frees. No way will any Armstrong sale money be 'reinvested' in the squad.

Yep. ‘Budget sorted’ my arse. Even when it is, the phone will be off the hook in Pune when we try to get anything over the line.

Nixon saying we want to loan Pears out and bring in another number 2

It's Nixon so take it with a pinch of salt but if it's true then Pears truly has been a pointless, jobs for the boys signing. No doubt our new number two will be another Teeside waster.

Getting Pears some first team experience isn't a bad idea but where he'll get it who knows.

I said when we signed him the longer Mowbray is here the more chance of Pears ending up number 1 is a reality. 

I'll stand by that, probably next season is my guess.  Faint hope that the manager is sorting out a mate before he gets potted though.

The club reckon Armstrong is going to stay. 

That means the asking price is too high and they aren't expecting any bids.

Well done Vs if true, new manager next please.....

If Armstrong stays then we've got less to do - but it's almost a harder summer without the income of his sale. 

Harwood-Bellis on loan is probably the most important business we can do. He's good enough and he's a cheapish option. If Armstrong stays you don't need a big money replacement but how do you improve on last year without Elliott and without a big budget?

I think you're over rating Rochina myself. Some odd glimpses of talent but overall very disappointing and not Premier League quality.

It's not really because we know Armstrong can score goals and we also know Mowbray can't be trusted with a generous transfer budget. 

We have a decent wage budget
