Baz Picking up on a sage comment you made below. You are quite correct the absence of KP means we lack an enforcer to protect younger midfielders from late tackles. Roca more of a passing artist which is excellent in itself and Adams still finding ? in English game. This is why if you're reading Victor, mistake of galactic proportion not ? to pursue ?. I regard Adams as a similar player to Forshaw and an insufficient upgrade on him. ? would do a lot for our team. #protectArchie.

Camara would be a bonus but he definitely imho isn't a priority.

Goalscorers, a. CAM, a LB definitely are an urgent priority.

Baz You are right but they are difficult to come by. The game has changed with much of the attacking threat now spread among 3 "forward" players. Ye auld Numero 9 playing off shoulder of central defender disappearing from the EPL. Baz, you know if I were in charge I wouldn't be messing around. CDK, Lang, Gakpo and Pepe can all join.

How would you ensure those signings George?

Tbe board completely wasted a promising 9th place finish in 2020/ 21 to. then finish a very weak 17th

. so far, far away from obtaining European football to entice quality such as CDK etc.

Baz Show them passion of the fans. Indicate to them their career and abilities improves once they play in the EPL. It is a difficult job to persuade the stubborn. Real problem is there's currently no way we can break into top 4. We have to hope our youth can propel us in time.

George - on #protectArchie, in what way do you feel ? would have found his? in the Prem any quicker than Adams, who is also perfectly capable of putting his ?in. Indeed Roca has already shown that he’s more than happy to get stuck in, albeit he needs to work on his timing a little, and he was the one who also got involved when the Villa players were surrounding Bamford and, having 6 inches and 2 stone on ?, Roca is actually far more of a physical presence than your 5 ft6 and 10.25 stone enforcer of preference. Then of course there’s the small matter of the Rasmusnator as some have taken to calling him, who I’m sure could find a moment to get involved in a midfield tackle if needed. Barring injury, Adams, Roca and Rasmus will usually be on pitch, and it was only the need to give everyone preseason minutes that meant all had been subbed off yesterday before McGinn took out Archie. It would be surprising if McGinn doesn’t get a ‘warm’ welcome when Villa come to Elland Road on 1 October.

Not panicking yet as I believe Radzs and co realise we need more fire power up front and Are working on it at present. Also it's preseason guys and the new players are getting up to match fitness as finding their feet, remember no one really knew Raphinha before he signed.

Cluey Good post (as usual) . I regard ? more highly than Adams with extra footballing abilities and more dynamism. As for McGinn, bet he wouldn't have made that tackle with Vinnie Jones or Alan Smith in our ranks. Btw regarding striker, looks like board listening to me. Rather spend £12M or so on Diaz than £21M on Kalimuendo. Acquiring Pepe is also a good idea.

18 Jul 2022 13:39:06
Long term, Kalimuendo appears to be the better investment tbh, George. Diaz has had one good half season and was then injured the other half. Kalimuendo has two full seasons under his belt now and is only getting better. And as I mentioned in another post above, he has the similar traits and style to Luis Suarez. It's a no brainer for who I'd rather have between Kalimuendo and Diaz.

Diaz isn't someone I'd want us to buy atm. I would reconsider after another solid, injury free season in the Championship.

18 Jul 2022 16:23:06
Dilli Hear what you say and I agree Diaz is a risk due to the old injury ? but I don't see Kali cutting mustard in EPL.
