Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Gignac Ivan Cavaleiro Carles Perez (loan) You've got me dreaming Cjay 😍 Shame it's only a dream :verysad: Can't imagine Bielsa being willing to stay if it isnt his squad (distinctly remember him saying this is Orta's squad). I think/ hope we will see more of his influence this season in the transfe...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

The thing is that from the start Bielsa made the best out of what he had. Now that shows that he doesn't have to have the perfect players and could still do well. Now if for example MB identified players in a way similar to computer games he might have say 20 categories that he would rate the playe...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Mon 20th May)

That's actually truly pathetic and actually imo the one least at fault is Casilla. His job is to be a sweeper keeper so he does the right thing. Berardi doesnt even challenge for the header for a start. Ayling is redundant the entire time. Cooper just has to make sure Marriott doesnt get to the ball...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

I take your point Cjay but the key is to find the right players which we haven't for a long time. The hope would be that Bielsa and Orta can between them get more right than they get wrong and the major point is that we also have a manager that can improve players. So if we sign the right young pla...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

I don't get you at times Cjay, you keep banging on about Brentford being brilliant at signing unknowns then selling them for profit yet when we do it you criticise. If we get decent money for KP that is because Bielsa transformed him into that player, we'd have been lucky to have got £100k for him ...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Think Jansson will go, seems to be this strange obsession within the club to want him out the door. Like last summer when about thesame time last year actually people were mentioning being told that Jansson and Vieira were being touted around by the club (how desperate is that). And it turned out to...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

The difference is academy players don't cost us money, so worth the risk. Might be spending money on players who are no better than what we have. Yeah wages would be an issue, but I reckon he'd get 30 goals in the Championship easily. He is lethal. Sometimes its worth the risk though, over the year...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Are they any better than what we have in our u23s? League 1 is poor compared to the Championship, look how strong Barnsley and Sunderland are. My dream signing is Andre-Pierre Gignac. He's a natural goalscorer, had his best season at Marseille under Bielsa and wouldn't s**t himself under the expect...

So what happened this season, injured or not good enough for bottom of the prem club?
Maybe didnt fit the system? Injured? Dont know.

Funnily enough though in just 360minutes of football he scored 2 and got an assist.

Pretty good that.

Re: Matej Vydra

Clinical finisher but not really a team player, and doesn't have the creativity or movement of Roofe. Dont you think so? Disagree withthat personally. Most of his career he played as a 10 and was known for his creativity and ability to find space as well as score goals. Imo he is basically a better...

Wasted Funds

Considering Radz isn't exactly keen on spending money on transfers he isnt to fussy about what we do have being wasted. Izzy Brown £300k in wages roughly. Vurnon Anita will have been a high earner so £1mil at least in wages probably more. Pawel Cibicki £1.5mil transfer fee so what maybe £2mil total ...

Re: Why we failed................

Because I don't think Bielsa is blaming the players for that. Didn't we just do a whole Bielsa stands by his players thing? So either Bielsa is throwing our "finishers" under the bus or something wrong has been read into his earlier words. If he is, as you suggest, criticizing our players then you ...

So what does these stats say about our attacking players ? That they weren't good enough and we failed to provide Bielss with the correct tools. It could have been so different :( Look at some of the players we genuinely tried to sign (not unsubstantiated gossip actually really were having conversa...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Personally I'd like us to go after 2 players we have been linked with before 1 of whom Bielsa apparently personally went to scout back in 2018. 1) Justin James- Young Luton right back who also can play as a left back and has played centre midfield, right wing and left wing. Been a key part of both L...

Given our goalscoring issues cant help but wonder how we would have done if we had got Matej Vydra. Ok maybe he was never interested and entirely motivated by money but at this level he is absolute class. Double PFA Championship team of the year player. Championship player of the year.

Re: AS Roma in For Bielsa

I doubt he would go just because Roma may want him. But he deserves it, he doesn't owe us anything and i wouldn't begrudge him taking what would be a great opportunity for him. Agree with everyone who said about us and what we offer him being the key factor. If we keep offering him peanuts to get pr...

Another issue with keeping Bielsa. Despite the promotion failure the wider footballing world will see what MB has done as a success and other clubs will be interested. After all any manager who takes a side from 13th to 3rd having only arrived a month and a half before a new season will attract atte...

Re: Transfer Strategy

The trouble we have had in the past is that we haven't adequately replaced players. If we go back to the first season back in the championship, Beckford left on a free and we replaced with Paynter, on a free. So we went from a striker who would likely have got 15 or 20 goals (maybe more but think a...
