Maybe just me slightly panicked but we’ve got to get these transfers moving and get the required positions covered so the new lads may have a chance of being available before October/ November as we all know Bielsa likes them to be fully interstates before considering for selection.

Me, relax.

Even if we don't get anymore first team players in before near the end of the transfer window it won't be a travesty.

We have the same squad as last year bar a couple of the older lads moving on, and they were only coming on off the bench. Fripo is an obvious upgrade on Alioski (only in the sense LB is his role and he is not being asked to fill in)

As I see it we have a lovely settled first team squad with certain individuals such as Llorente, Rodrigo and Koch desperate to prove themselves from the off this time.
Radz, Orta and Bielsa have the luxury this year of only buying exactly what they want and giving such players time to integrate before they are expected to produce the goods

BTW, I don't see the young keeper they are looking to buy as the backup to Meslier. I think he is an upgrade on Caprile. I think we will loan an older head. There is no rush for that, no need to pay the backup until we actually need him. Let his current club get him fit and pay his wage (I read that Peacock-Farrell may be loaned out! at least he knows the drive to work)

Ye I get that axe, I’m not so much worried I just hoped we would have had more than just Jr Firpo in already. I’m sure there will be a surprise name or 2 yet to come.

Me, I think we all would love to see a few new faces at pre-season too, but I guess all these buying and selling clubs do the "who blinks first" approach to transfers

Last year we definitely needed more quality to keep us up. This time we can be a bit pickier. We don't need to pay top dollar. Or may be we are looking at even higher value additions this time?

Glass half full, hot tub bar fully stocked.

The question I ask myself is, if we do not buy another player am I satisfied with what we have, and the answer must be yes. In midfield where we seem to be concentrating our efforts I feel we have Dallas, Klich and Forshaw (an unknown quantity) as candidates. Until we capture our perfect choice, I would be more than happy for one of them to fill the void.

26 Jul 2021 14:59:35
Klich burned out badly last season and isn't getting any younger. I wouldn't count on much from Forshaw either. I personally think we desperately need reinforcements in midfield (as we have for the last 2 years now) and the sooner the better.

26 Jul 2021 15:07:25
I think more creative midfielder is needed. Don’t really believe that Forshow will play much. Klich lacks consistency.
And if smth happens to Firpo or Ayling Dallas will be moved there to cover.
Maybe young lads can fill the gaps… But I would be much happier if we get someone proven, but only if it would be an upgrade. Don’t want players to be brought just for quantity.
