    Agree apart from Buckley. With any luck he'll be starting tomorrow.

    Sharpe says that both are registered in time for tomorrow's game. I think this would be one occasion where Mowbray's tendency to not start new signings is completely understandable given their lack of game time, but I'd love to see Douglas thrown straight in.

    On Evans, he's completely won me round from a few seasons ago when I would have happily let him go for nothing. I think the way that we're playing now though he would need to be the deepest player in the 3 for it to make sense, and I wouldn't want him trying to get as far forward as Holtby has been getting at times. In fact I think one of the things which did for him before Mowbray was that he had to get up and down the pitch too much in a 4-4-2, which clearly he isn't up to doing. Different story if it's a 4231 or if we have two players in front of him doing more attacking. Need to get Buckley in for Saturday.

    You can see his influence on Pep - identify the way you want to play and commit everything to following that approach to the fullest extent, to hell with the weaknesses which comes with it. Sacrifice is the essence of strategy etc,

    Another thing I like about the Trybull signing is that it seems to have been kept under wraps excellently. First knowledge of it about half an hour before he's supposedly having his medical.

    The 'not athletic enough for a Bielsa team' is interesting given how our set up is really fitness driven too. Then again Leeds have been ridiculous in their pressing, so I guess it's all relative. On the potential defensive frailties, whilst we would obviously prefer players who can do both sides of the game well, an excellent attacking full-back is still a big upgrade on Bell (although by his standards he's had a very decent few games).

    Start as I mean to go on. To think I've still no issues with typing Khizanishvili after all these years.

    Whilst not knowing anything about him until half an hour ago, a little research suggests that Turnbull looks like a highly decent player. Seems to be good with or without the ball, should suit our new high-energy style.

    In fairness, I'd mark that down as a very strong window given the circumstances.

    Have to say I'm surprised about that, and can only assume he's asking for a similar wage when clubs are cutting their cloth accordingly. There are good arguments (which I don't 100% buy, but whatever) that he slowed our play down too much last year, but he still created great deal of chances. Played almost all of our games, versatile. Even if we have different priorities, amazed that other teams haven't taken an interest.
  11. Agree completely with that, the successful clubs even at this level (see Brentford) are the ones with structures in place that are robust to changes in personnel. High turnover is a fact of life in football, exemplified by the fact that TM is almost in the top-10 longest serving managers in the football league. One room for optimism is that I seem to remember Mowbray giving an interview about this very point when the idea of a European scouting network first came about. He said that he wanted to leave a legacy which outlasted his stay as manager, and if the academy is anything to go by, Venkys do (currently) seem willing to fund the aspects of the club which are potential money spinners.

    Williams as a left-field choice

    Makes sense, would have been a huge call otherwise. Any notion of how serious the injury is?

    No arguments that we need an upgrade at left back, but I don't think he was poor against Wycombe, or that he was terrible against Bournemouth for that matter - although he was partially culpable for one of their goals. Obviously it's easy to look decent when we're blitzing teams 4 and 5-0, so I'm not under any illusions about his ability, but at least looking at this season, the only game where he was poor was an admittedly abysmal 15 minutes against Doncaster.

    And Anfield around the same time. I was told that he was on 12k a week. Not sure if that's correct or not, but getting that aged 17 must have an effect.
