Re: Concerning Transfer Policy

Aside from the fact we are extremely tight and mess about for ages and end up missing out, pre season training starts on Monday. Last season various people said that they saw MB, Orta and Radz having quite an animated discussion after a friendly and within a few days a player or two arrived. MB like...

Concerning Transfer Policy

Anyone else find our plans for this transfer window a little bit worrying? :duno: All reports indicate most if not all our signings will be loans, at best maybe 1 or 2 cheap punts from abroad but largely it seems Premier League loans are the plan. A sale is probably going to be included somewhere to...

Re: Sarri

If Lampard has any sense (and humility, doesnt believe the hype) then he will stay at Derby, gain more experience, try and actually get them promoted and improve on last season. he got Derby to the playoff final, but also got less points then Rowett did the season before as well as conceded more goa...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Fulham being linked with Adam Forshaw. We are being linked with a £250k bid for 18 year old Carlisle winger Liam McCarron. We still seem to be focusing on the down the line signings not the right now ones we desperately need. If funds are so tight can we really he paying 6 figures for a teenager? Al...

Re: Player Profile : Tyler Roberts

Keep as a bench player.

Talented lad but far to inconsistent for a first 11 spot and very poor end product.

Surprised we arent seemingly after a natural number 10 given how vital it is to our system.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 14th June)

Wouldn't surprise me if Roofe goes, had a decent season, probably available quite cheap, could see a lower end Prem side taking a punt as a backup.

Whether Roofe would want to be a backup who knows but Villa for example could pay him his £30k a week no bother.

Re: Bailey Peacock-Farrell

He probably isn't but he's young enough to learn, but that's an aside. I will say the BPF's distribution was far superior to purported sweeper/keeper Weidwald, who also struggled to keep. Sweeper keepers also have to keep first be a sweeper second. As Wing backs have to know how to defend...Our gre...

Re: Bailey Peacock-Farrell

Cjay I thought it was an issue we had addressed last January with the signing of Kiko. Everyone agreed that we needed to strengthen in that area, and I believe that Kiko has been a plus, especially when we were conceding from corners.. That might be a stat worth looking at but from my perspective w...

Happy BIELSA Day

12 months ago today he arrived :) A club in a bit of a state. Fans divided. Money tight. A squad of players many of us had lost faith in. Today we are title favourites for next season. Whatever happens MB will always go down as a miracle worker in my eyes. What he did with that squad last season was...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 14th June)

This time last summer strong rumours were the club were trying to sell Jansson and Vieira. Vieira confirmed he didnt force a move, quite the opposite, Jansson also confirmed he decided not to leave. Somebody will be going, Jansson, Phillips, Clarke or Roofe, at least one. If the club decide to cash ...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Being linked with a loan move for 20 year old Bournemouth goalie Mark Travers. Some of our links are very odd. Untried kids from Brighton and Bournemouth only on loan. Are we really that skint? Problem with loans is if it goes wrong then next summer we lose all the loans, the manager and we have hal...

Re: Bailey Peacock-Farrell

Good point that Bailey isnt a sweeper keeper, perhaps he could be developed that way. What about Huffer and Miazek? They have both been offered extensions to their contracts, what style are they? Cjay I would suggest and high experienced keeper like Kiko getting it right 3 times out of 4 a poor ret...

Re: Bailey Peacock-Farrell

Regarding the criticism BPF got tbf he isnt unique, goalies in general split opinion, they can be a hero on Tuesday and then the worst thing ever on Saturday, just have to look at Kiko's thread to see that. Similar to strikers, Klich, Phillips, Pablo misplace a pass chances are it wont directly lead...

Re: Bailey Peacock-Farrell

Imo it doesnt matter if BPF is a good keeper or not because he isnt a sweeper keeper. MB wants a sweeper keeper, our style demands it. Kiko imo 75% of the time gets his judgement spot on when coming off his line and that is vital, the keeper has to be willing to take that risk, BPF isnt at this stag...

Bilic is one of my favourite managers, I had hopes that one day he would be tempted to bring his party to El but not yet.

He will be a huge asset for them
Agreed, worries me that he has taken over at WBA.

Marta starts v Australia this evening & puts Brazil ahead from the penalty spot. Cristiane made it 2-0 with another fine header to score her fourth goal in the tournament. Aussies pull one back in added-on-time before the interval. Marta's fitness obviously a problem as she is withdrawn at half-tim...

Re: Championship 19/20

Slaven Billic is the new WBA manager.

Jonny Woodgate is close to being named Boro boss.

Monk is apparent on the verge of leaving Brum after falling out with the board.

Re: Player Profile : Pablo Hernandez

Retain.

Nobody gave more for the cause last season, he is our classiest player and we are lucky to have him.

Needs to be used more sparingly next season given his age though.

9/10 . . modern day legend.
