Would be a good signing, perhaps slightly too good to expect Raya to start off as number 1 if that's still Tony's plan,

We need an obvious upgrade IMO, else it's just wasted wages.

Upgrading the GK spot seems like the easiest position to fill. Ruddy would be a quality signing.

If that's what we're going for, then Ruddy's CV would suggest he's exactly that.

Raya's a real conundrum for me. I fully expect him to have a really good career, but how patient can a club like us afford to be with a goalkeeper?

I really do hope we build from the back.  I'd rather we spent money on the goalkeeping and defence before anything else. We pissed away far too many points through basic errors and lethargic defending.

Ya, because it would make a lot of sense to say "i am signing a new number 1". It would be really intelligent. 

An intelligent manager wouldn't.  But an intelligent manager also wouldn't publicly back a player he intended to replace. It doesn't need much intelligence for you to understand this.

In my opinion the keeper is not the biggest problem. Defence is.

A goalkeeper is very much an integral part of a defense. We need a more commanding figure at the back, not just a good shot stopper.

Thought ruddy was a lot older than 32 so would be happy with that signing with 2-3 years still in him 

At least look at speroni today he’s 39/40 played this year albeit twice in the preem.

Ruddy looks a good one I remember him playing against us at Goodson when steadinho scored!

Good keeper a poor mans paul Robinson in his pomp

Wondering if the "ex-England international" hint made somebody hazard a guess at us being in for Hart rather than Ruddy.

I think it’s credible we checked all options though il caveat that as we were linked with Carson in the same article so potentially your angle might be right.

He isnt saying Raya is his No1 going forwards, he's saying he's No.1 over Leutwiler. He isn't saying he won't get better than Raya in the summer.

Asking price is 10 allegedly.

Just seen Nicko quoting 8. There’s some dodgy tribal football link HITC type linking him away to Sheff Utd.

Best keeper ive seen in the championship for a while is Bialkowski at ipswich. Not sure why he hasnt played much this season, but great keeper. Be available on the cheap now i reckon.

Fantastic keeper who had a very bad start too this season and lost his place in the team for a while.. Might need a change of scenery after a few years at Ipswich, if we can get this guy back in form I think Raya would be struggling too get in the side.

I think I’d sell Lenihan for £8m. If he wasn’t injury prone then no, but he is.

It's a good point in regards to his value. However, given he's our only good defender, I'd be extremely reluctant to let him go. Even using the money to replace him is a risk, as we wouldn't have any good centre halves to start with. We could buy two, but one might flop, leaving us back to square one.

That’s a lot of money for a handful of decent performances to be honest. Cupboard is bare though.

Because Mowbray can't do anything until he's flown out to India to agree the budget. He'll be doing that next week or the week after. It's not difficult 🙈🤣

You’re assuming that we’re actually looking at free transfers? We’re not behind anything lads. We just probably didn’t want Shinnie or any other freebies right now It’s really THAT simple! 🤣🤣

Its not rocket science to suggest that the manager not having the foggiest as to the budget he is working on until a couple of weeks after the season has finished, a season in which we could have in theory prepared for with weeks of the season left due to our league position.

You say its an assumption to suggest that we are looking at frees, even the manager doesnt know!

Don't be silly. Of course we're after freebies AND contracted players. Keep up. 🙈🤣
