Re: Next seasons kit choice?

I shall buy both shirts as every little bit of money helps the club. It says a lot when the only thing to be excited about at the moment is the new kit.

Re: Rumour - Kadeem Harris

Can we actually sign anyone at the moment? Apart, from something on Twitter I don’t recollect seeing anything official.

Re: Rumour - Josh Laurent

For me, he’s our best player and we really can’t afford to lose him. Sadly, this seems to be where we’re at right now. I just hope that we don’t start accepting derisory offers for our best players. I feel a bit doom and gloom about the season ahead at the moment but hopefully we can add to the squa...

Re: Relegation

We look doomed to be honest. I hope to god I’m wrong but I fear that we’re heading for a few years of misery. Our best players are too injury prone, we don’t have a midfield general like Parky and what does the manager know about a relegation dog fight? To be fair, I like him but I worry about how h...

Re: If it started tomorrow.

I have no problem with our starting eleven but given our recent injury record we’ll be down to 5 or 6 of them after the first 6 games. It’s too early to be negative about the season ahead but I fear that we’ll be back to flirting with relegation again, if we can’t make any new signings.

Re: How many players will we sign this summer?

Most probably nil, or at best one or two loan signings. Worried that we’re going the same way as Sheffield Wednesday, especially given how we finished last season. WHat similarities do you see between us and Wednesday ? Fairly similar business model over the last few years. Michail Antonio and Luca...

Terry Hurlock without doubt. Paul Bennett could look after himself.

Re: Favourite signing of the summer

I am probably mad but based on seeing him play over a number of years, especially when he was younger I have gone for Adam. I can see that for one season only he could be like another Ian Harte. I am hoping that he can help the younger players with his experience and have a few games where he is the...

Apparently the player has filmed himself at Gigg Lane the home of Bury. That just doesn’t make sense.

Re: Where will we finish?

As it stands 22nd.

A new striker, plus a central midfielder could mean 16th to 20th.

Saying that, I wouldn't be surprised if we did a Norwich and Nova scores 25+ goals. There are so many unknowns for me but I do believe we have 4 very solid central defenders and you can never have too many of them.

No, plus he'd want too much money.

What is it with wanting old players back?

Re: Pre season tour

I couldn’t get to the game, so watched it on the 5th stand app. Overall I thought we played really well. Adams looked good on the ball and it was a shame a about Walker’s error for their 4th. The commentary was obviously biased, although they did pay us 1 or 2 compliments. I think Chelsea might stru...

Re: Pre season tour

Been impressed by us in the first half. Not sure you can blame Virgínia for either goal tbh. Negative, is Blackett’s injury as not much cover at LB.

Looks like Hugill will be signing for QPR. He’ll be a good signing for them. Not sure how well Barnsley, Millwall and Wigan etc. have strengthened their squads.

Re: Rumour: Leo Bonatini

This could be a really good signing. I remember seeing him play for Wolves and he looked like a decent/clever striker to me. Saying that I think Wolves fans moaned when they signed him permanently. Gomes being Portuguese could also help if the lad has lost his confidence, as there won’t be any langu...

Re: CONFIMRED - Matt Miazga

Very happy with this signing. If I could have chosen one of last season’s loan signings to come back it would have been Miazga.

Well done to PTR for getting it right about Ejaria. It was a shame about Oliveira though.

Hoping that we can now bring in a striker asap.

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

I couldn’t see this happening in a million years. I don’t dislike the player but I just believed that we would stay well clear of this type of signing. In saying that a 1 year contract is sensible and many years ago he was class. Maybe Howe etc. are trying to make sure that we don’t get relegated th...
