I wonder how he does against Nyambe in training.

(I know training isnt the same intensity barometer as games, before anyone starts)

To be fair he's usually on the right so up against Bell🤦🏻‍♂️

No wonder he approaches games full of such confidence! Maybe this is why Tony is finding some value in Bell after all....

I also think (hope) the arrival of Dolan and his early form, could be just the kick up the arse that Harry Chapman probably needed. 

If Dolan continues as he's started and Chapman produces the form we all hope for, those 2 wide could terrorise defences.

Travis is quality, and in a team that wants to press high up the pitch you need Travis energy and tackling ability. We have no-one else like him in the team. When Mogga talks about higher priorities than a LB I'm pretty certain he means CM.

A back-up goalie rarely plays. Fisher can do that job. 

Eastham would be an even better number 2 imo. Got so serious skill with the ball at his feet.  Yeah tend to agree, I would sign Manning; can play midfield and left back.

We've seen this before though only to see them quickly reeled in again TM's natural conservative attitude will kick in again sooner or later. Prospect of Derby will no doubt have him scrabbling through a million different team selections and tactics in his head.

I'd just keep trying to fan the flames of this lot and let them have a real go for now.

Not sure why you think this when he has played a very aggressive 433 against Bournemouth and Newcastle.

TM Hit the jackpot with Nolan ... He was in for both Lamptey & Atsu and they would have cost a bit to his budget plans 

TM singing his praises is even better ...He could easily have made him a scape goat after the Bournemouth game Like Big Sam did with Derbyshire but well done to TM for sticking by him ... Nolan paid him back big style ....

Who is this Nolan you harp on about?

What chance a loan move for Herbie Kane ? He was at Hull last year and with Liverpool signing midfield players it’s pushing him further down the pecking order there

Good player. There’s lots of great loans we could do, let’s hope we get one or two in to boost us.

Didn't see him starting, was thinking more of an impact tricky sub. Yesterday against a very poor side was the right thing to do but to start against thug defenders might not work. 

How much did we pay PNE?? (🤣). There's got to be a song. Ok he's not "...he came from Real Madrid, he didn't cost a quid...." but we've plenty of time to make one up. 

But could just as easily might work.  Small, fast and tricky could perhaps get a thug defenders legs all tangled up.  Be good to see how he handles some physical stuff.  Hiw will he react, will he hide? or will it motivate him to make the thug look stupid.  Could be key.

I can see him getting that kind of player sent off when they lose patience. I definitely used to kick attackers like that when I wasn't getting anywhere near them.

If Chapman has anything about him he would or should be pulling out every ounce of his ability to show he deserves to be played 👍

To be fair, that Lamptey looks some player as well!

Given the tonking  the barcodes have had at home, wouldn't be surprised if they put in a panic bid for Armstrong.  Especially if they have any kind of sell on percentage in that original deal.

Looking at the clubs who have loaned him I tend to agree. It's also quite telling that Everton fans used to call him Luke Garbage.

On the subject of Everton though, with their excellent recruitment over the summer there look to be some proper players suddenly out of the first team picture. Probably out of our range but Tom Davies and Mason Holgate (if he's still there) spring to mind. Plus the left back Martina (having checked it looks like they have released him and he's a RB anyway!!) - he's a player.

Holgate plays quite a bit they have a good young cb called branthwaite but he appeared to get hurt the other night and a winger called Tony Gordon but the way he played the other night might be a struggle to sign him on loan

I think the last 3 years pretty much speak for themselves on that score. I hope now it's a case of hes getting together the system and players for this type of thing consistently.

However going off the past and things he's done and said, also the fact he was mulling over his formation in bed then changed his mind at the last min to something more attacking involving Rothwell  shows it's likely to happen imo.

Based on Mogga's Post match interview, I'd say not.

Sounds like he needs to decide how he is going to spend the remainder of his budget. 

Either 1 permanent signing or 2-3 loans.

(Unless we already had one in the bag last week and he was talking about the remaining budget after that)

I still can't get round Mowbray's comments yesterday. So inconsistent with the message from earlier this window.

After the Ayala deal the word was we were looking to swiftly move on to the next position, widely believed to be LB, with hopes and expectations being that a prime target would be in the building very soon.

The suggestion was that we were working through a list of priorities and hoped they would fall like dominoes.

A couple of days later Mowbray is suggesting that LB isn't a focus of his attention, and that there remains a question as to whether he uses the remaining cash on one permanent signing or spreads around loans.

That isn't consistent with what was being said last week.

I hope and pray he is playing media games here because if we are down to having to ignore positions given limited cash we are going to struggle. Loans aren't the answer and I hope that they aren't priming us for a wait until early October when we do a late dash for a couple of loans
