    Summer Transfer Window

    They wanted 2.5mil when he had 6 months left on his deal. He’s now signed a new deal so absolutely no chance.

    Cardiff away

    To be fair to TM; it’s not like the ‘false 9’ 4-3-3 doesn’t work... Liverpool and Barcelona have operated with it to unbelievable effect and Man City use Bernardo Silva up front in their ‘big’ away games. It’s just that the problem lies exactly there... we don’t have Firmino Salah and Mane; Messi Villa and Pedro or Bernardo Sterling and Mahrez. Leave the clever stuff for the big boys, let’s get 2 up top like most successful teams at this level over the last 10 years have had. Leicester got 100 points playing 442 ffs.

    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    Leeds are a good side, but we have been absolutely atrocious. Can’t string 4 passes together.

    Inter Milan I think unfortunately.

    Barnsley v Rovers

    Rothwell is piss. 17 starts, 12 sub appearances, 0 goals, 1 assist.

    We need a lot of players in Summer. 2 x Goalkeepers are a given. A left back, if not 2. Our current options there wouldnt even be second choice if I could help it. If Tosin goes back, 2 x CB. If he stays then we do need another. Williams ok as cover but need to be looking at better than that. Tom Clarke being released from Preston. Him alongside Darragh would be good. Also played a lot at left back I think? Or is it right back? Good CB all the same. A creative midfielder to play alongside Travis (who is just magnificent). I like Evans; Johnson an option from the bench. But it’s not enough over 46 games as we’re seeing now. Curtis Jones would be nice but think we need more experience. Off the top of my head someone similar to Adam Forshaw/Ryan Woods/Harry Arter. An out and out actual winger or 2. With pace. Gallagher/Brereton aren’t the answer. And after 2 years TM has seen what majority of fans saw re: Armstrong being a striker. A striker who can actually score goals would be nice too. And a bit of a nasty streak. Defenders playing against us when Dack isn’t in the team must be a dream. All ‘nice lads’ but fuck all on the aggression front. It’s no wonder when teams make it hard for us we struggle (Wigan x2, Stoke, Luton, Birmingham, Charlton). Again, off the top of my head, someone in the Mitrovic/Juke style. (No I’m not saying spend 12mil on mitrovic before anyone starts) As for departures, I’d be getting rid of/not renewing Bell Smallwood Mulgrew Bennett Davenport Chapman Rothwell Graham. Obviously I’d like to sell Gallagher/Brereton too but doubt there’s anyone that desperate out there. Only nailed on starters when fit for me are Lenihan Nyambe Tosin (if staying) Travis Dack (when fit), Downing (36 next year) and Armstrong. Rest is up for grabs.
  7. Keep it tight and every single set piece get Darragh, Tosin and Johnson on Raya’s toes.

    Well that’s it then, see you on the summer thread where for the 6th window in a row, we need to sign some defenders!

    Just with the talk of ffp and saleable assets mate. I wouldn’t cash in but just trying to show the point you never know who’s worth what anymore to those claiming we have no saleable assets.

    Wouldn’t be disappointed with Hogan, but that Enobokhare is shite. I understand what you’re saying though. Expecting lots of last minute deals like this that have probably rumbled on for weeks without coverage.
