  1. AshtonRobin21


    The frustrating thing about Nagy is that his strongest attribute is his fitness/stamina, but lacks in key areas required in the championship. His passing tends to slow our pace down, he doesn't risk the forward passes, and Physically he is dispossessed too easily. If his biggest asset is his ability to be a runner in CM, then I feel Weimann has proved to offer much more since transitioning to Centre Midfield. I can see him being sold before the window closes.
  2. Tommy Rowe has been awful in that LCB role tonight. We need additional cover at CB. Cannot be relied on at LCB if we get another injury. Let him do what he does well and act as cover as a LWB. Take Mawson and Kalas out of the team and we look suspect at the back.
  3. Really good post from the OP. @Mr Popodopolous The system is one we are familiar with from the League/JPT winning campaign. I remember how fluid our link up play was when using this formation. Players in pockets, neat touches, quick pressing, it served us really well before going stale. One notable change (especially during this transfer window) is that we don't look like we like are setting up to be a 'nice' team anymore. Something we have been missing in recent years has been some aggression and bite. The new crop of signings look like we are really going to get at team's in order
  4. Likely to be in the region of 300-500k for the season. Wouldn't exceed that amount as we are developing the player by offering game time. I can't guarantee the figure as I am not ITK, just an estimate based on age, market value, reason for loan etc. I would compare to the Ben Gibson loan to Norwich, they are paying £3m for the season if rumours are to be believed.
  5. Wages yes, I believe we are only paying a loan fee for Sessegnon. We have picked up all of Mawson's wages which I believe subsidised any loan fee.
  6. Seems like a wasted signing, but I'm looking at this in the view that we have improved our squad and after selling Szmodics we should breakeven (fee's paid). Joe Williams - £1.25m Chris Martin - Free Alfie Mawson - Loan Steven Sessegnon - Loan Chris Brunt - Free Total - £1.25m (plus wages) Out: Szmodics - £1m+ A player who won't be used this year has covered our outgoing fees so far. Any other outgoings now will be money in the bank for January.
  7. It's a shame, but he will get his chance. Some real competition for places in that midfield this season. No doubt a few will be leaving though. From the way Holden was speaking about his midfield options, it seems like he will set up with one defensive minded player and two attacking next to him.
  8. Really happy with the news that Walsh is about to sign a new deal. Big season ahead for him.
  9. Sounds like we are still going to be quite active in the market.
  10. This is something we have been caught out on too many times in the past. Bryan, Brownhill and Reid (lucky he had the season he had, when he did). There's a reluctance for players to sign a new deal with us until we progress. Currently listening to 'sound of the city' to see if Holden has any more to say on this (Fam and Nic). Personally, I would like Fam to stay. However, If he won't sign a new deal I would like us to bring in a striker who can press well, instead of a like for like replacement. I really would love to see us go for Bonne. I think he could do very well for us.
  11. Would be interested to see people's opinions.... would you be willing to keep Fam for the season but face the risk of him not signing a new deal and leaving for free, or selling for say £4-5m and bringing in a player more suited to a pressing system such as Macaulay Bonne and having money in the bank for January? I really like Fam, his personality is fantastic, he has a good relationship with the fans and I think he improved his general play last season. However we can't sit around much longer and hope he signs a new deal. £4-5m (I would expect if sold) is a substancial amount for us
  12. Sessegnon deal should be done within the next week or so, providing no last minute problems occur. Worth mentioning that Reading were also very keen. Fulham have been trying to get a right back in themselves before committing to the deal. They were in for Matty Cash before he went to Villa. I have a friend who is a big Fulham fan and he said that Odoi and Christie aren't seen as consistent options for a Prem season. Odoi gets booked regularly which could trigger suspensions, and Christie is very inconsistent with his form. * I want to state that I have been told this fro
  13. Apologies, just saw it flash up on twitter after Tinnion retweetes, so assumed it was in normal time. My mistake.
  14. Debut goals today from Cundy (Cambridge), Johnny Smith (Swindon) and Edwards (penalty shoot out - Grimsby). Good start for the lads out on loan. *Edited as didn't realise Edwards goal was from the penalty shoot out.
  15. The spine of our team looks much stronger (once completed). Mawson, Williams and Martin is fantastic business. If asked a few weeks ago if I was excited for the season I would have said no. However, now I am delighted with how the squad is shaping up and feel we could have a real go this year. Under LJ we signed good players that weren't suited to the way he set our team up. Now under Holden we are signing players who are perfectly suited to his system. It looks like Holden knows exactly how he wants his team set up and we actually have genuine competition for places.
