Re: Clear out started

Did he play another minute after that? Anyway heard nothing on Baldock. Not mentioned in the presser Gomes said he still expects another 5 or 6 to go So Mannone, Meyler and McNulty would be three. Is he including Ilori? Blackett? Baldock seems out of favour so maybe he is one to go too. Reckon eith...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

had a quick scan through a few youtube vids of Baker. One thing I'd say is he is a bigger physical presence than I thought. Looks a fairly strong 6ft. Reckon he's pencilled in for one of those 2 DM slots alongside (or possibly instead of at times, Rino). Dunno if he can tackle. More of a Bacuna repl...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

One of the most frustrating things about the Swansea game is they only got into our area about 5 times in the match. Obvs they had less motivation to after they went 2 up, but defensively the midfield didn't actually do too bad a job. The goals were from Ilori rubbish marking, Barrow crap clearance ...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

Think there is a fair amount of complacency in the two signings and a lack of acceptance as to where we are in the table. I like the fact that Gomes has a clear idea of how he wants to play - but making up a 5 point gap and playing your way out of the bottom 3 - it’s certainly brave, but I don’t th...

Re: Speculation- Ben Woodburn

More a winger isn’t he? I was including wingers in the attacking midfielder bracket. Either way I don't think we need to spunk more money on creative players. Need a very good striker, goalkeeper and defensive cover. Could also do with a big stiff idiot in midfield if Eza leaves. sounds ideal for D...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

have to bear in mind that the two new lads are completely different players to Meyler, Edwards and O Shea. If Gomes is going to go full on passing and possession, the likes of the 3 mentioned are completely unsuitable for the system. In theory, bth Baker and Ejaria are totally suited to it, and have...

Re: Confirmed Lewis Baker on Loan

I’m guessing that he doesn’t much like the look of Bacuna or Kelly. Or both.

Re: Confirmed Lewis Baker on Loan

It could work out incredibly well - swapping Clement, Meyler and Edwards for these two chaps could be a stroke of genius

Or not

Either way, good to see the kind of quality the club are looking to sign. Just need that winger, LB, CB (if Ilori or Blackett go) and keeper now

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

Surely that's the end of Eza? Otherwise we have 8 first team midfielders for three positions Bacuna Rinomhota Kelly Eza Baker Ejaria Swift Aluko Considering we're in dire need for a LB (Obita isn't good enough either), CB, two wingers and possibly a striker, I'm shocked how we're wasting two of our...

If we're still looking for yet more midfielders: 'Mansfield midfielder CJ Hamilton is attracting interest from the Championship, according to the Mansfield Chad. The 23-year-old former Sheffield United player has scored five goals for The Stags this season, and the newspaper reports West Bromwich A...

Re: Clear out started

Are you suggesting we just keep paying him a big wedge and keep him hanging round the squad when he isn't going to play because he is a nice bloke, and his mum died last year? Meyler is a good guy from the sound of things. Also almost retired for personal reasons last year, when his wife kept miscar...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

sounds like the Baker deal will happen.

Either a stroke of genius or a complete waste of time

My bet is we'll end up with something like Baker Rino and Swift/Ejaria in that midfield, whilst Bacuna or Kelly will be loaned off and Eza sent back
