Seeing rumours about Tyler Roberts and Derby . For me NO WAY
He is 21. He has potential, Bielsa I think likes him . Keep him.

Mighty Agreed. In the words of HIB, tell the Rams to fork off.

Hopefully if rumours are true we will be offloading Casilla and Douglas, 2 big earners we can do without.

Especially Kiko, big bobs going for. his wages.

Noel whelan has said we are looking at Robin Koch and it's no rumour, I think he seems the most likely signing at the moment . I'm a little underwhelmed by our persistence in Ryan Kent . I think if we signed him in the champ then I'd of been happy but I just don't think he is what we need .

Mightywrighty

I think for once MB realises we need more depth in the squad, and more rotation options. Kent would be a fine addition to provide depth and cover.

Football insider reckons we have opened talks with rob holding and arsenal want to sell . Could be a good alternative to White at a fraction of the cost.

Don’t really know him mighty. But I can guarantee that Bielsa knows what colour pants he prefers, and what time he goes to bed at night, so I think we are in safe hands! 🤣✊🏻.

Links to Ryan Kent Again . Feel like I've gone back in time 2 years.
If I see Kyle lafferty rumours I'm done.

Slapped in a 10m bid by all accounts.

hes knocked you back, wants to stay at a big club!


4.) 20 Aug 2020 22:03:16
That’s the best joke I’ve heard all year! I’m perplexed that even a Rangers fan thinks Rangers is a big club!
They are a decent team in a a Sunday League.
I hope we don’t waste £10m on Kent, far better players are out there for less money. Rangers a big club! hahaha.


5.) 21 Aug 2020 11:29:17
If you leave rangers or celtic to go to the EPL, you need to go to a top 6 team to be going to a bigger club.

Ayling and Cooper at CB just shows our squad appears paper thin and injury prone . Sad to say maxim will have a worldy tonight and I think we are in a relegation fight this season.

Mightywrighty

1.) 17 Sep 2021 20:49:35
Told all you guys repeatedly we needed another central defender.


2.) 17 Sep 2021 21:45:26
No relegation fight at all. Never.


 

 

24 Aug 2021 06:53:37
I maybe wrong here but if we give a stupid goal away or give a penalty away or getting a player sent off does it seem to be always Liam Cooper.? It seems like it but I'm sure if I looked at the stats in detail I'd be wrong.

Mightywrighty

1.) 24 Aug 2021 09:09:44
He does seem to play a more robust, full bloodied, old fashioned game which was commonplace in the 60s but not tolerated now.


2.) 24 Aug 2021 10:43:13
I don't recall Cooper giving away a penalty last season. I do remember Rodrigo, Koch, Ayling, Alioski and Struijk but not Cooper.
It surprises me as he did what he did to DCL in every game he played!


3.) 24 Aug 2021 12:08:13
He may be club captain but he’s a liability at this level but hey in Bielsa we all must trust.


4.) 24 Aug 2021 12:42:58
The refs have said that they are being more lenient towards old style, physical play, which is great news, and about time in my book.


5.) 24 Aug 2021 13:50:47
Cooper is out of his depth resulting in holding players, pulling shirts and committing fouls from ill timed challenges. This results in giving away opportunities and free kicks and getting booked and sent off.


6.) 24 Aug 2021 13:55:09
Mighty - for last season, Coops received our only red card, albeit a very debatable decision at Man City - and inadvertently it added lustre to our most notable result, the backs to the wall heroic 2-1. As for penalties, of the 9 awarded against us, a grand total of 0 were conceded by Coops. Koch had two (in the first 2 games) , Alioski 2, and 1 each for Rodrigo, Klich, Struijk, Meslier and Ayling. As for other random mistakes leading to goals, who knows.


7.) 24 Aug 2021 18:40:52
well that debunked mightys assertion clu.


 

 

23 Aug 2021 22:48:44
Seems to be some comments saying the squad is weakened with the likes of alioski, Berra and pablo going, at the moment I'd tend to agree but it seems the club expects the signings from the previous summer perhaps to replace those. We've got the likes of dremeah Summerville, Greenwood now pushing the first team squad and also you'd like to think second season improvements from koch and Lorente Rodrigo and raphina You could argue with a full season under there belt at the club and a pre season with bielsa that the squad is potentially stronger than it was .

Mightywrighty

1.) 24 Aug 2021 00:41:43
mighty
early days of course but so far Raphinia has started well this season but for various reasons Llorente, Koch and Rodrigo have not, hopefully they will though.

The good news is that i do think we have at least TWO possibly up to SIX very good young players on the threshold of making a first team impact and that DRAMEH and SUMMERVILLE right now could immediately come into the first team and prosper

( at a slightly later stage Bate and Gelhardt and then possibly Cresswell and Greenwood too )


2.) 24 Aug 2021 04:04:33
Hoping your right, would be great if they can step up and be part of match day squad, not seen them you mentioned in action but seem to be highly rated, especially Summerville and gerdhert.


3.) 24 Aug 2021 06:16:48
I don't think any of those youth players mentioned are at all ready to step up or we would be seeing them come off the bench already rather than just being on it. Maybe by the end of this season we may see a few but ready for the first team they are certainly not. Our reinforcements are unlikely to come from the u23s this year.


4.) 24 Aug 2021 06:32:30
Sorry for yet another glass half full post. I know I antagonise some on here with my "unrealistic " version of life.

I don't see us as being weakened by the departures of Henandez, Beradi or Alioski.
Sure the Henandez of a couple of years ago, if we had lost him then I would agree that we had been weakened. However I am thinking of the Henandez we saw last year. I think he is a great footballer but the older guy that was adjusting to the faster pace of the Premier League was not the footballer I will always remember. Last year he was less effective than Roberts so I am glad he has been able to move to his hometown team for his swansong.
Beradi had become a peripheral figure in our last two Championship seasons, so I am not sure why people are saying his departure has weakened us. Yes he has an amazing attitude. But his effectiveness in the first XI had dropped off from a couple of years ago.
Alioski is slightly different in that I would have loved to see him sign an extension. However, I would still have wanted a more complete left back for the first XI even if he had stayed. To me he would have improved the quality of the substitute's bench. Since his departure that has opened up a space for one of our better U23s. As this is our future I can't see a downside with this departure either.

I can now understand the Kinnear comments about why we overspent last year. Securing the talent we did gave us a greater chance of staying in the PL. Now, in the 2nd season, that talent needs to again secure our PL position but also develop the team so that up and coming U23s are sensibly added to a "winning team" and not panic additions that have pressure on them to deliver.

I have said before, the old Liverpool side used to add 1 or may be 2 additions a season to a successful side. Improve whilst no wholesale changes.
Slowly Striuk will oust Cooper. Slowly Klich will be phased out. Slowly Drameh will replace Ayling.

I have been patient 16 years, I can be patient a few more. And in the meantime enjoy our evolution.


5.) 24 Aug 2021 09:26:44
Agree mostly Axe with what you say although I think it was for the best that Alioski left. For him to come on into a losing team made us even more vulnerable as his ability to get forward left us, many times, open at the back. Even when defending his positional play was atrocious.
As for the young ones I am of the opinion that they should be given their head but slowly filtered in and extra carefully monitored.

As you alluded to there are more than a handfull that are beating the door down and a case can be made for their inclusion. The latest to blossom is young Bate even more so when you think that our achilles heel, at the moment, is midfield. The major problem there is Bielsa, his loyalty/ stubborness and his insistence on turning to his two favourite subs who time and time again have come on and failed to affect the game.


6.) 24 Aug 2021 20:10:11
Leodis, totally agree with your Alioski observation. He was not a man to rely on. I would have been happy if he came on as a Harrison/ Raphinha replacement when we were 2 goals up and looking to just save the legs of our first teamers. I would not have wanted him to be thrown on to get us a win.

I like Bielsa's loyalty. It breeds more confidence in to the players that he picks. It raises their levels
Mind you, in doing so it also shows if a player is good enough for his spot or not. If you can't play well when you have Bielsa's coaching and backing then you can't play football at all. In Cooper I think we see someone who has reached his limit and has little further to go. Whilst both Koch and Llorente are not 100% I can understand him getting the nod. Struik needs experience alongside him so he can develop. Cooper is a better candidate than Cresswell at this stage. I hope once the 3 are fit we see us use 3 man defences or the third man is on our bench.
As far as Costa is concerned I am hoping Bielsa is giving him minutes to put him in the shop window. Similar to Casilla's couple of games at the end of last season. He isn't horribly bad, he just isn't PL level (as Wolves realised) and he isn't Bielsa level. I hope he can find a team that works for him.

Roberts is 22, as far as I am concerned I can live with him developing at a slower pace than some. It's not like he is awful when he plays, he just isn't at the level of some of his peers so he disappoints.

Mightywrighty

Brighty called it all along. Just hope I ain’t jinxed it now!


2.) 21 Aug 2021 08:11:00
Fabrizio Romano claiming we are not in communication with Lang’s agent or club Brugge!
Seems this one is another pipe dream.
I doubt we will sign any European based players now, too much post brexit and c.v. red tape.
IF we make a couple of additions they will be British based.
Adama, Kent, james. Maybe a surprise one to add to the mix but personally I doubt we bring in anyone else now.
Sincerely hope I’m wrong but I genuinely fear the lack of squad depth will hurt us this time around.


3.) 21 Aug 2021 08:18:42
I agree Me, we just don't have the depth of quality like the top teams, it's concerning!


4.) 21 Aug 2021 13:53:29
Same fabrizio Romano who has been spouting so much crap about De Paul and all the other inaccuracies he has mentioned the last 2 years?

Reliable sports reporter he ain't.

Looks like a new keeper coming in, slightly underwhelming so far but we have signed Firpo and Harrison so happy with that, and have some untried potential in the u23 hopefully to break through this season but I think we would maybe all like to see a new Hernandez at the club.

Mightywrighty

1.) 17 Jul 2021 06:02:09
Tyler the Creator 💛💙.


2.) 17 Jul 2021 07:46:43
We're not after a creative mid anymore sadly. The club of the opinion that Rodrigo and Roberts are good enough in that position.


3.) 17 Jul 2021 07:58:27
If true Alf that suggests to me there is a much smaller transfer budget this window.


4.) 17 Jul 2021 09:13:56
Baz - Alf is correct. Phil Hay has said that transfer plans were being drawn up from January onwards and that from the off the Club had been intent on bringing in a new 10, but the form of Rodrigo and Roberts towards the end of the season had led to a change of plans, with the money for that position being earmarked instead to a new central midfielder, preferably one who could play DM if needed and also at number 8. So no reduction in transfer pot, but rather a change in priorities.

Of course, we also know that a new winger is being sought, even more so if Costa is moved on, and whoever comes in might also be adept in the 10 role - for example, Noa Lang certainly is.


5.) 17 Jul 2021 10:43:31
With the addition of Firpo, and permanent signing of Harrison, I couldn’t be further from disappointed. We are still PL, and we remain financially viable. The Ridsdale / Bates era become a more distant memory by the minute. What’s the saying about how to catch a monkey?


6.) 17 Jul 2021 11:52:45
Don't know if we need a CM cover for Kalvin. I was impressed with Koch when he played there and we have Struijk, who Marcello rates, and an untested Forshaw, so I am not sure we need to outlay.

I wouldn’t say there is an urge to replace him but he hasn’t signed a new contract and has been linked with a move away . So it’s only natural we would be looking for a replacement at this stage .

Yeah we do need another CB but you know Bielsa will likely play Ayling Strujk or Phillips at CB if needed . He has before . However in this league we can afford to put square pegs in round holes so a another CB is a must in my eyes .

I think if we get Henry then Douglas will be sold and Davis loaned out . Not sure where that leaves Dallas or alioski though but just seems a signing we don’t need .

Kent maybe

Koch
Cabral
Rodrigo

Probably right now.

It’s an absolute no from me . I think Bielsa would get the best out of him but I’m thinking more in the region of 15 mil otherwise I’d definitely look elsewhere.

You’d think this coming season then Rodrigo, Lorente, koch and Raphinia will be firing on all cylinders then . Hopefully we may see the best of Costa and Poveda as well and maybe some of the younger players like Summerville, Geldhart and Dremeh May start to feature.
