Really happy with this, and as others have said if there is not past injury worries then happy days.

But........... I have to say that I can't quite remember a first interview permanent or loan that has unnerved me so much!

He looked like he wanted to kill someone. Maybe nerves, not great at interviews, tired? or maybe we've found a right hard'un no nonsense CB. Yes I did see him laugh in the roof video which was good, maybe someone said cheer up mate and he laughed when they fell off the roof.

 

I haven’t seen it yet, but at the end of the day he is a professional footballer, not interviewer. There are many footballers who just hate that part of the professional game.

I remember last season they put Jay Dasilva on commentary duty, and it was absolutely awful. He had nothing insightful to say, in fact, he barely had anything at all to say, and clearly was detesting being there. Made you wonder why they asked him/dragged him up in the first place.

One thing I note in his interview is he talked about being excited by the players we want to bring in. One of them could be Martin, of course, but it implies there may be two or three still to come yet.

Personally I feel we still need a right back and another centre back at minimum. Three at the back with four centre backs until Christmas is massively risky and I’d not be confident on Rowe filling in at Championship level, even if he wasn’t also covering left wing back too...

There may be a couple of makeshift options if we get Brunt or Pereira in, but I agree that it is looking a bit thin at the moment. There is always the option of moving to four at the back if necessary as well.

Did Ashton casually hint that Messi had handed in a transfer request ? 
 

He’s a little tinker that one.

This is true.

By my reckoning, if we do want to stick with 5-3-2, we've got 5 players who are "excess" in certain positions - Adelakun, O'Dowda, Eliasson, Szmodics and Palmer feel like the players who don't have an obvious place in the system and/or seem to have at least two players ahead of them in the position where they would most naturally play. Obviously we might want to keep attacking midfielder and wing options if we do want to be able to switch the system up but, if we choose to and are able to move players on then I don't think it is then financially impossible for us to get an RWB (maybe Pereira or Sessegnon), another LCB (maybe Phillips) and a bit more LWB/CM cover (Brunt), which I reckon would give us the cover and depth we need.

Hang on guys, Alfie Mawson is a quality player, we all know that.

It reminds me so much of when we signed a glass player called Webster and that went particularly well.

A fit Mawson is one of the best defenders in the division. Let's give him the same backing we gave Webster.

This is a great player and, as mentioned above, him along with Kalas is a massive step towards sorting one of our major problems of last season.

Welcome to BS3 Alfie, show us just how good you are pal 👍

Kalas, Baker, Mawson. Imagine dreaming of that a few years ago?

Shame baker's legs are made from polystyrene

Of course he could also know something about the supposed interest in Sessegnon?

Purely speculation, but both contracted to Fulham. If the interest from us is legit, perhaps he knows that it may be happening?

25K a week? I thought we had no money, and why we couldn't get a decent manager? Ffs. 

Football Insider as a source is basically a load of guff. Whatever his wages are, I doubt we will ever know what proportion of the actual figure City will pay. We should just be happy the bloke has signed for us for the whole season. As for the 'decent manager' bit. That ship has long since sailed. Time to suck it up and move on.

Definitely. The club decided Holden was the best person for the job and, whether we liked that decision or not - I didn't - he is now the man in charge. It is time for him to prove that we do have a "decent manager". It's not his fault the club offered him the job and I'm willing to see how the first months of the season pan out before passing a judgement.

Agreed. I was fuming at the time and to be honest I'm still p!ssed off. We've all had a chance to vent our spleen's. Time to move on in hope rather than expectation in my view. This signing is a brilliant one and if we can pull in another couple of gems in this transfer window then who knows. I'd be happy with extra helpings of humble pie!

Tbh it's worth considering that at the time, FFP was as usual and many clubs were hemmed in. Possibly us included.

Since Holden was appointed, there has been some sort of extension, grace period- rolling up of this and last season into one, which changes the equation somewhat. Not saying it's the sole reason but it's definitely a factor to consider.

Yes, amazing how Football Manager, websites like Sportrac and general rumours become fact. FWIW Mawson is still paid by Fulham, they will continue to do his PAYE.  All we are doing is paying for his services.  That could be a one off fee (typically a loan fee), a set weekly / monthly amount (typically a wage contribution) plus any other bonuses due (appearance money), or a combination of all 3.  It doesn’t matter too much as long as it doesn’t blow our budgets.

Very true fishy, a really good player but sooo fragile sadly.

He desperately needs a consistent run of games to justify a new contract on, I would imagine, pretty big money. Is he worth it? I'm really not sure.

When you say consistent run of games - he played 34 games last year, and 28 of them he played 90 minutes.  He is 29, so not over the hill yet and has bags of experience. I would keep him 100%
