Re: Lewis Baker

One thing dont see is where Baker fits into a 3-3-1-3 formation. He cant play the more defensive midfielder role, he apparently is ok defensively but clearly is a more attack minded player. He cant play wide left or right, Boro tried that briefly under Monk and he looked uncomfortable. So that leav...

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2018/07/01/derby-leave-matej-vydra-home-11m-move-leeds-edges-closer/ From reading the Derby forum this journalist isnt prone to making stuff up, he is "rarely wrong".

Re: Jack Clarke and Oriol Rey

I think Bielsa will like Rey and I see Clarke getting a chance this season. I also like the look of Kun and Hudson from the u18s, can see them getting a bit of game time this year.

Re: Lewis Baker

Wanted us to sign him last summer, so a year later we do. I wouldn't put too much gloss on him not playing for Boro, as Pulis doesn't give youth a chance and prefers hoofball to actual footballers. I think he should thrive under Bielsa, as has what we lack in midfield, pace and height and is too foo...

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP

Colombia were excellent earlier, easily my favourite team to watch when on song. Looks like they could be meeting England next round, definitely would be a huge wake up call if it came to be.

Re: 2018 championship fixtures revealed

I don't think the fixtures are that tough. I remember last year everyone said we had as tough start, but then we did well and it became an easy start. We have no one to fear in this league tbh. Teams should be fearing coming to ER.

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP - next up COLUMBIA v JAPAN

Far too much of an overreaction from the pundits, especially Rio saying that teams will fear England now. Lol, we're bang average and scraped a win vs a poor side, who we struggled to break down. Panama will be exactly the same. This is why we need the likes of Rashford and Vardy on so we can open u...

Re: English Player Values

Two reasons: 1. The homegrown rule and numbers needed. Large majority of PL clubs don't develop their own players, so a need for English developed players mean they will panic spend. 2. They have more money than sense. An ITV digital disaster with Sky would be fun. Fans are also to blame, demanding ...

Re: Transfers. Signings Rumours and Wishes.

I personally think Klich is a very good player, Hernandez is proven, Saiz is a good back up. I like both Alioski and Roofe to get better. Some interesting players in the youth set up too. We own a lot of centre midfielders...If Biesla is half the manager most say he is then he should have no proble...

Re: Transfers. Signings Rumours and Wishes.

Interesting no one thinks the midfield needs improving, that has been our weakness the last two seasons imo. We don't have enough ball players, especially for Bielsa's style.

Re: Transfers. Signings Rumours and Wishes.

GK - Gunn on loan would be good. CB - Foyth loan would be good, need another ball playing if we go 3 CBs. Maybe look in u23s as well O'Connor, Diaz or Struijk might do well under Bielsa. CM - Tall, energetic midfielder. Souliaho Meite on loan from Monaco could be a good shout. Abdoulaye Toure from N...

Hernandez for me. We don't need another no.10. I don't think Torres is likely, but if he is, then I'd get him as well.

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 13 June)

Quite a few sources saying 1 year deal with a 1 year extension option, Newell Fc for one, another Argentinian Football expert dude to saying the same thing. Smart if true That makes sense. Where we are we can't really afford to give him a long term deal, but if he gets us up it will be extended.

I agree. When limited players like Hugill are going for £10m, then that is way too low.

Re Vydra. He scored like 8 penalties last season, so from open play he was no better than Roofe. Really want Hernandez.

Re: Summer Transfers and Squad Discussion

We are linked with a loan move for highly rated Spurs Cb Juan Foyth. Much as fans want Bartley, quick glance at Spurs forum, they are full of praise for Foyth. Bartley is a Swansea reject who's only ever played one full season. He did well at us, but it's embarrassing how our fans have turned him i...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 8 June)

What worries is the British manager seems to be a rushed appointment, so someone out of work like McCarthy or Pardew. Shudder. Another poor appointment and waste of money those would be.

Re: Aston Villa

Didn't realise they had those huge debts fair enough I take it back. Though surely a sugar wouldn't make much of a difference anyway because of financial fair play. They can't just pump in millions without risking paying huge fines...? Well that's the problem, it isn't. Ffp was supposed to make clu...

None of those clubs spent big apart from wolves! I bet preston and other teams are looking at us being like how can you be spending 4.5 million on one player (forshaw). Yes they did. Bournemouth were fined for failing ffp and had 237% turnover on wages, Brighton lost £40m and had debts of £170m, Ca...
