Re: Bowen out rumour

Rumours of ex Beijing Rehne boss Aleksandar Stanojevic replacing him, did well at Partizan but barely survived 15 games anywhere else. Not convinced the owners have chosen him given the earliest candidate seems to be pure media speculation.

Fella from twitter who seems to be semi itk has suggested we’re interested in Trevoh Chalobah but we will he waiting until the end of the window so we can get better deals for premier league loanees.

Re: Rival Watch

Forestieri has really struggled with injury and has at times come across as hot headed, not to mention he’s probably very expensive to have around. He’s a brilliant player but he definitely doesn’t fit into Bowen’s supposed summer transfer strategy in targeting young, hungry players. Unrealistic to ...

Re: Dai Yongge in trouble with Chinese government

We’re no worse off than if SJM had succumbed to a heart attack at any point after he took us on. Most clubs are now totally dependent on a rich owner, it’s how the game has gone. The report thoughseems to simply be a historical run through of where he got his money. I don’t actually see anything th...

Re: Speculation - loans from the Premier League

We signed Khumalo and Afobe during 11/12, Khumalo was show the door as soon as he went through and Afobe just didn’t have much chance to show what he could do imo especially with the form Noel Hunt, Adam Le Fondre and Jason Roberts were in.

Re: Ex -Player Podcasts (Cureton/McShane)

Brian Tevreden refused to even talk about Gourlay. Said it hurt him to see long serving, loyal employees sacked by him and that more interestingly, Gourlay(and some others by the sound of it) cared more about their power and ego so the path Tevreden gave our youth players was destroyed. Only other i...

Re: Speculation - loans from the Premier League

Surprised he hasn’t mentioned Oliver Skipp who I think will be highly sought for this summer. Herbie Kane is also an option, one of the few bright sparks in that Hull side. Oliver Skipp has actually been linked to us as per the Evening Standard. Southampton, Forest and Fulham all very keen. Fulham ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

One year ago we had this fella down as our no 1, thank god for Rafael. Have to say I still don’t understand why we thought relying on a 19 year old keeper was a good idea. I still think within 5 years time he’ll be challenging for a Portugal spot, but his age really showed badly for us.

You make it sound so easy, nobody leaves when they still have a lucradive contract unless someone comes and offers a better one. well if we knew we wouldn't be able to get some out the door why on earth would we be in the market for another striker... we are trying to cut our cloth if we sign this ...

Re: Rumour - Josh Laurent

I don’t see why being from the lower leagues makes a player automatically more hungry though. John Swift came from Chelsea known as just a youth prospect, in his four years with us he’s matured and has become known as one of the most technically gifted players in the championship. Worked his way up...

Re: Rumour - Josh Laurent

Sounds like his main asset is his pace and work rate but jury’s out on his technical ability which lacks consistency and the maturity you would want in a midfielder. Great if he’s for depth, not so great if we’re hoping to start him 46 games in the championship. I don’t see why being from the lower ...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Seems Bowen is looking to give Holsgrove, Holmes and McNulty a chance in pre season going by his comments. McNulty looked ok when we played him but he’s just really not good enough for this level.

Re: Bowen, Sack? Yes or no?

I wanted Bowen out but let’s look at the squad he had today. He had Yiadom out all post lockdown, Moore was in the worst form I’ve ever seen him in when played at centre back, we have no holding midfielder meaning a horrendously unbalanced midfield, Ejaria being out hindered our creativity massively...

Or makes it quicker to sign multiple players in a short space of time, because you've got more people to spread the load on? We don’t need to “spread the load”.

Re: Speculation Nigel Adkins new DOF?

We don’t need a DOF. Our current system is fine as it is, the manager says who he wants and submits to the board his list, from there I assume Nigel Howe negotiates the contract and the transfer fee. Having more people involved only increases the time it takes to sign a player. Or makes it quicker ...
