@Tyrone Shoelaces Ive seen you mention this Rochdale right back Luke Matheson in another thread, can you tell me why you were so impressive by him?

He's lightening quick for a start. He's got a good engine- gets up and down the wing without too much trouble. End to end runs are no problem. He can pick a pass and he gives it nice and early, rarely gets caught in possession,  reads the game well for a young player. Two decent feet, Most of all he wants to play and he wants to take the game to the opposition all the time. Very enthusiastic lad with a good attitude. Very bright and level headed off the pitch apparently.

Downside is he's not very tall although he does his best in aerial challenges.

He's been out of the team lately because he was being asked to do too much at such a young age  but the rest had obviously worked wonders for him today.

Before we get too excited United are in for him apparently.

Or we could bring David Goodwillie back, he's just scored a hat-trick too.2131501611_default_biggrin1.png.7a424872a047f465a97adbd76fd36076.png

Me & my walking stick'd be ahead of him!😄

He also didn’t look out of he’s depth against Newcastle today and I’ll go further made a difference in shutting down Newcastle on that wing. Very very tidy

Our players need to stand up to be counted, stop hiding behind excuses, as does the manager 

The team is about where it should be given the personnel we have.

 

Again, I can't subscribe to this theory. The manager regularly plays people out of position, drops them when in form or plays them when out of form and generally mismanages the team. I refuse to accept that we wouldn't be several points better off with a manager who didn't do these things so often. The league is tight enough that that would make a big difference.

I singled him out on the day we played them. He was very good!

Young German chap looks decent, however, where the hell will he end up playing for us if he does come? In goal? Right back?

Anyone else think our lack of money is down to the Dack injury ? Selling him was our best chance of not coming foul of FFP - we are now in a financial hole with our only sellable asset being Lenihan.

Quick research:

Aymen Barkok - Fortuna Dusseldorf (Div 1) - 21 Years Old - Attacking Midfielder - Played 3 Games In The Bundesliga 1st Division This Season.

Niklas Schmidt - Werder Bremen but on loan currently at Vfl Onsabruck (Div 2) - 21 Years Old - Attacking Midfielder - 11 Games, 3 Goals & 1 Assists for Onsabruck this Season. Maybe cutting that loan short and heading to us for the final 6 months of the season. Worth a fair few bob but clearly not required at top league Bremen.

Gorkem Saglam - Vfl Bochum (Div 2) - 21 Years Old - Attacking Midfielder - Contract expiring in June 2020, so loan here less likely, unless its loan to get permanently on a free. Hasn't played a single game this season. Seems to have come from their academy. Did play 10 games last season, with no goal contributions or assists... hope it isn't this guy.

Florent Muslija - Hannover 96 - 21 Years Old - Attacking Midfielder - Played in 15 games for them this season, so seems the least likely for a loan deal. Hannover a good side in the second division though, and is young so never know.

 

Gut feeling says if its any of these lot then its Schmidt from Bremen.

 

Take my hat off to you sir!

I think that's pretty much everyone's opinion rather than a select few!

We have to see what happens. Depends what year 2 of our championship returns show financially. 

We need to start looking towards the foreign more and getting players cheaper than we paid for Brereton or Gallagher. I would imagine our summer signings will be free transfers and loans. With the bulk of them foreign players.

There is absolutely no evidence that Mowbray will start signing foreign players.  How many has he signed since being here?

Never played against Rovers. 6 games all season. Ben William's was good for us.

Set to sign our 1st foreign signing if reports are to believe. Plus our scouts have been in Germany, Portugal and France.
