  1. Me, my brother and a mate are all in for this. First one back for a good while for us this, looking forward to it and judging by the team that played Saturday we might get to see a few faces that make it an interesting one. A team that looks like - Dixon Jones, Santos, Senior, Gordon Lee, Thomason Isgrove, Darcy, Politic Kachunga And I'll be more than happy!
  2. I appreciate the optimism, I'm just not sure relying on a 33 year old who hasn't scored those numbers at that level in 7 years is ideal. Obviously I'd keep him around and have him play a relatively significant amount of time but we need to think about longevity at some point as well.
  3. That's the problem for me, I'm not sure Doyle can be the main man with a step up in division. No doubt he's a good poacher but it's whether he can offer enough to create things when it might not be going our way. I'd like to add some more athleticism in general in a number of positions.
  4. Not to be too negative but I do think we'll need some significant improvements to the Starting XI if we want to challenge again for promotion next year. I don't mean that to say the current incumbents couldn't be effective at that level, I just think there is room for improvements for consistency purposes. There's a few players been released at Championship level that I'd hope we'd take hard runs at. Ashley Fletcher from Middlesbrough, never lived up to that fee they paid but I think would add a good bit of athleticism at the top of the pitch, allows Doyle to move to more of an impact player or rotation against weaker defences. James Chester from Stoke, 32 now but that sort of defender that can play a bit, experienced enough to take up that role from Baptiste and let him move to the bench. Reece Burke from Hull, it says he's out of contract on Tranfermarkt but don't know how accurate it is, either way he'll have offers from above our level I'm sure but I'd love him back and looks to have developed into a proper decent defender. Nick Powell from Stoke again, I love Sarce but I'm not sure he's got all the physical tools to do it consistently at the next level, Powell another who can lack consistency but having the pair of them as an option in that Attacking Midfield role could be push them both. I'd like another winger option as well to add to Politic, Isgrove and hopefully Afolayan. Right back as well, as reliable as Jones has been I see him as more of a backup option in League 1.
  5. I would assume they're all signed to the same agency. That or he's met a few at an England camp? But I can't find anything on him ever going to St George's with any of the England youth squads.
  6. Our best XI after that window for me is now. Gilks Jones, Santos, Delaney, John Lee, Tutte Maddison, Sarcevic, Delfouneso Doyle The exciting thing is imagining that team with Politic in it as well. I also imagine this defender we have on trial will walk straight into the side alongside Santos.
  7. We do... He struggled quite a lot last year with positioning and the speed of things, I suppose it's hard to judge the lad based on the conditions of last year but he didn't show as much promise as some others.
  8. I can see Brockbank doing well on the right of a back 3 as well. Brockbank, Delaney, Zouma That ain't so bad for a start but would definitely want one or two adding for more experience as well.
  9. It would appear that IFK Östersund who Boon has signed for, has been confused with Östersunds FK. IFK play at the 4th tier of Swedish football rather than FK who play in the Allsvenskan. The 4th tier has 6 regional divisions, which would suggest that level is pretty low in terms of quality. Still a decent experience for the lad.
  10. No, I'm saying with 3 at the back the midfield shouldn't be as defensive minded.
  11. Surely 3 at the back means a defensive minded midfielder is less necessary, last night you could easily go with: Matthews Emmanuel, Nsiala, Delaney, Bryan, Fleming Hamilton, Murphy Crawford Politic, Dodoo
  12. And there we have what we call small time mentality. Worrying for me.
  13. Also depressing reading. So the lads we do bring through are up against shite as well? We're already competing with so many other clubs in the area, not sure how offering less will aid us in any way. This is disheartening news.
  14. Because your first team becomes a shop window for talent, rather than developing them within the club in the hope they're part of your future progression, they're brought in earlier than usual in the hope they look good enough for a 'big' club to give you a few mil.
  15. If we're going that route then Holgate has played there and done well for Everton. I don't like it though. Prefer the attacking possession based midfield with Henderson as the pivot, a combination of Maddison, Grealish, Winks, Foden and even Loftus-Cheek if he gets fit as the more advanced pairing handling the majority of the creativity. Allows Sancho and Sterling to cause havoc with their movement ahead of the ball and forces Kane to stop dropping so deep.
