Geldhart finally signs.
Pretty pleased with this one, was impressed with him this season and think once he gets Bielsa fit he could become a decent player for us.

Agreed and good to get him in for pre season training. Until anyone else arrives he has a real opportunity to impress, hope he takes it.

Not sure he will be a first team we this season but good to see us snapping up a promising player. Makes a change from when it was always us on the end of such transfers.

Aiming high as usual.

I think this lad is a bit different than some of the youngsters we’ve brought in before. He was being talked about in the 5 million class before their financial troubles. It’s not about age with these kids it’s about how good they really are, if they have the potential to do really really well then they can do start to do it at a young age. Ditto Charlie Allen from Linfield only 16. If we can start to see some home nurtured strikers coming through it will be great.

It was interesting during the lockdown when there was no under 23 football, the focus of the under 23s was only on supporting the first team with training, squad and bench if required. That period brought Shackleton, Poveda and Struick back firmly into the reckoning. If you read Bamford on Struick, during lockdown Struick was tried as defensive midfield during murder ball and absolutely nailed it. After that the thought of using him and not White grew.

With a premier league 2 programme that level of youth involvement in the first team is harder, but I’m sure that the kids Bielsa really rates and would call on if needed will be the ones filling out the squad numbers, helping out in training sessions and balancing those duties with the under 23s. In that respect who gets the link job between under 23s and first team is important.

Top post Spaniard. Glad you’re back full time pal!

What Spanish said

We’ve a coach and staff committed to identifying and developing our own players to play in our own style

Players develop differently and at different rates so it’s a numbers game and not all make it to the first team

Those that don’t will still be very good players and will generate income when sold

This is a “ go to “ club again

No more journeymen winding down careers.

Agree Woody and being very professional about how we are bringing people in and signing new contracts for those we want to keep. We are still not getting all the new signings right but then not sure anyone does that all the time. Look at Chelsea and the worlds most expensive goalie and now tipped to buy a goalie!

Bogusz signs 3 year deal

Looks like we are progressing nicely.
