Re: Next Season's Squad.

I see that he played for Maritimo in Portugal so presumably known to the manager.

Re: Rival Watch

I thought Leeds were outstanding at our place and but for the terrible mix-up between centre-back and keeper v Derby would probably have made the play-off final this season. The key will be them keeping hold of most of their young players and signing a left-back and reasonable striker and the only ...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

As ever these topics move sideways , quite rightly, as further debate ensues and generally, apart from Ian, in a friendly manner such as discussions with mates but at arms length. I mentioned Michael Owen as a young footballer much talked about before making Liverpool's first team, having scored goa...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Blackett is reasonable enough tbh. Would like to do better but he is ok So he is o.k. enough to play, as he did last season, quite a big part in getting us into the bottom 3. only to be bailed out by the excellent loanees who showed just what we had been missing? In my mind we need better just to s...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Sorry to jump in but this is painful to read. Victor you are right he is a striker but that is very lazy just assume all strikers are the same or any other position has the same type. No one would compare Scholes to Foden for example as they are different midfielders. No one would compare Hudson-Od...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Team as a whole not the same as a specific position. None of the loanees were fullbacks so irrelevant to a discussion about the quality or quantity of full back position. If there's one position we don't need to strengthen, it's very obviously fullback. Bollox Care to expand on why Brendy? I know V...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

I agree with your point to an extent. But we're not talking about some average academy guy like McIntyre etc...we're talking about someone who has already represented his country at national level 42 times at the age of 18! So I don't think we do have the best of all worlds Blimey m8 anyone would t...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

"Adequate"? To just about survive relegation and now without the loanees who helped us survive. I'm ok with Yiadom but agree with zip that we have quantity rather than quality. Team as a whole not the same as a specific position. None of the loanees were fullbacks so irrelevant to a discu...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Oh dear...I’ve set them (hi Ian, point missed yet again...but you crack-on) off again Yep...let’s sell all of our future team Surely there needs to be a point for it to be missed ? If selling Loader means we keep McIntyre, Nolan, Holsgrove etc then we have the best of all worlds. I agree with your ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Do disagree here. Yiadom on one side and Gunter/Blackett sharing the other is an adequate set. Not amazing but good enough. Fair enough though "Adequate"? To just about survive relegation and now without the loanees who helped us survive. I'm ok with Yiadom but agree with zip that we have...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Scanning through, his point wasn't that we had necessary "quality" there, just we have a lot of options there, especially considering we're light in other areas Gunter - first team for many years Yiadom - contender for POTS Blackett - improved, played regularly for three seasons Obita - h...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

25 million asking price for Harry Wilson - 22 years old Considering no-one had heard of him 18 months ago, surely this can put the argument to bed Danny Loader will not be going for 2 million (seriously) or anything like that. It'll be double figures minimum Not sure where you have been but he has ...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Adkins hasn't achieved anything apart from finishing above us in the league, which is hardly a ringing endorsement. Nobody said that he had gone on and won the oxf*rd World Cup-read what I wrote, i.e. "o.k.", which he has done and of course all 3 are in work. Well all I'm saying is that &...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Not that it means much but the Transfer Market website has him valued at £450,000 and they are aware of course that he has played for England Youth. I would love the boy to become a super star with us but we are a selling club and he is a commodity. Just because Wolves are rumoured to be interested ...

Re: Value the Squad

Have just re-read the O.P. and it has led to some mildly interesting discussion. I think the views of Pete on values are in many instances way off beam. I think he has failed to take into account that our squad consists of players just above Div 1 level and that is how they and our club is perceive...
