    Shrewsbury friendly

    I thought the same though a cynic could say the same about Bournemouth and us

    Does Jamie Paterson have Bobby Reid's DNA?

    Bobby Reid didn’t look the same wide left either. Pato was doing an admirable job on the left all season but he only played there because of Bobby Reid’s form. So no he would not be Reid’s level but he could do a good job there. Would be better to use him there rather than panic buy for big money. I know that we want to keep progressing but it will be tough losing out on Reid and Bryan. I’d rather consolidate a bit and make sure we recruit the right players. Example would be Forest. Didn’t go and splash last summer after Assombolonga was sold but worked on what they had and added to the squad when they could. It isn’t a like for like comparison but a decent example.

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Probably slightly higher but it isn’t a huge gap. Though the argument you responded to qs very flawed. Getting to finals is not winning them and Messi at International level is underwhelming. Ronaldo can will his team to win. Also don’t buy this attitude stuff. He literally gets paid to be the best and you have to have the midset that you are the best. Of course he is arrogant. It is probably how he gets the best from himself and it works
  4. I was going to say I thought he played more as a forward there and everyone said he didn’t score. Imagine that isn’t his best attribute scoring. Him and COD could be a very industrial wing pair which may help defensively.
  5. Yep. A bit of a grafter who has worked his way up the leagues. LJ also worked with him before so at least we know he will contribute unlike some other signings. People bang on about players from England and championship. Well here you go and guess what? Still moaning. Poor at Norwich and good at Barnsley. Sounds like any player. Had a bad spell at a club it happens
  6. And I would buy all 3. They better buy some players with that money though!!

    Couple of Charlton players in big trouble in Ibiza

    Can’t agree. It is that thinking that is going to get these footballers into trouble. Maybe they just thought it was two interesting guys they could have a good time with. Maybe afterwards something but guys shouldn’t think because they are coming with you it is consent. Take the no like a man and let them out of the room. It only goes downhill after the initial no. I know it sounds not manly enough to assume a woman wants to just hang out but it is how you have to look at it. Any other thinking is going to lead to trouble

    Hinds, McColsky, and Semenyo - big season?

    McCoulskey- Agree. L2 where he will start a majority of games. Is a tough ask though for a young player(I know he is actually a bit older but young in his career). Kind of a make or break for me. Will he kick on or will he just be a good bench option? Hinds seems to be following a similar path to Smith. Didn’t really feature for Cheltenham. Possibly a bit too much too soon but I imagine being in that first team environment and trying to earn a place done him well. A good national league loan would be good for him. Semenyo needs to be looking higher. Made his championship debut and was already atleast a level too low last season at Bath. He is young but for me needs to move up at least 1 level. He is my favourite of the 3 strikers. Got all the physical attributes but seems like he can play too. I’d keep him around a bit to train with the first team. He can be loaned outside the window to a conference team. Vyner is a tough call. I’d be using him for our squad personally but I accept that may not be super likely. For me, he would be back up RB and I’d be trying to get him 15 or so starts there. I know he wants to be a CB but he won’t get that here at the moment but I’d like to see him get more championship minutes. He can do that at RB. Same for Kelly Taylor Moore needs a new contract first and foremost. We spent too much on him to give up on him. Different to Engvall as defenders do take a bit more time. I’d be telling Plymouth this guy could be better than Vyner(I think he could myself). I wouldn’t mind L2 but it would have to be a top L2 side. Cheltenham was always a strange one. Smith had a stellar season and we are seeing more and more player make the jump from conference into the football league. I’d be looking to find Jonny a L1 loan. Needs a new contract himself. I am a big fan of his

    USA joint bid gets world cup in 2026

    USA joint bid gets world cup in 2026

    And by 2026 we will be a world football powerhouse That said I don’t think it is right for all 3 countries to get automatic spots in the competition.

    Now the Head Physio has gone!

    If he wants to go all good but I really enjoyed him. It seemed as if the players loved him. Will miss his videos(would have hopefully missed them anyway with less major injuries!). This is probably as gutted I have been with a staff departure

    How much money can we invest in the squad?

    The 3 year window in which FFP is looked at. There are weaknesses in the squad that money would solve. We agree on that. We just have different views on what the budget might be. We will see and I hope you are right

    How much money can we invest in the squad?

    This is the big question. Will we always sell one or two of our best every summer? We are still early in the new set up and possibly we will earn more from our academy being loaned out then sold to highest bidder in lower leagues but we are still years from that. Until then, do we sacrifice our ability to compete in the top end of the championship for the money? Need to sell for the model to work but look at Southampton. You can’t do it 4-5 years in a row and expect to keep uncovering new talent and compete at the same time

    How much money can we invest in the squad?

    Yes it is definitely a guess on my part. We are just getting to that 3 year window with LJ though and we have spent big much of that time. I know Kodjia and a couple sell ons gave us a fair chunk but if you think back to the January when he first arrived we have spent loads on loans and fees. So yea I don’t know where exactly we are but we have progressed our spending quite drastically since LJs arrival and I am a bit skeptical as to what we can fairly spend. Not only have we shelled out bugger fees but I imagine our wage bill has possibly gone up 50% plus. Do we really bring in that much more now? Idk. I’d rather we had more than what I am guessing for sure. Just think we must be getting close to spending all we can under FFP without further sales
