  1. https://insidefutbol.com/2022/06/29/nottingham-forest-see-bid-for-target-knocked-back/565597/ Forest bid 11m plus 4m add ons for Neco Williams and been rejected Surely just add a measly 4m to the initial fee and they can have Spence instead
  2. Graeme Bailey @GraemeBailey 19h Understand Middlesbrough have agreed a deal with Arsenal for Emile Smith Rowe. Boro have been looking for a new number ten and they have landed a very good one in the English playmaker. @90min_Football
  3. Hopefully get the keeper in this week and maybe another squad player or 2 like Smith and McGoldrick Then please please let us have a breakthrough with the Spence and main striker situation, I want at least 1 of them in before the main preseason games start
  4. I had a feeling that the "currently" mightve meant a relegated teams striker Joao Pedro from Watford could fetch that sort of money
  5. As far as I can tell this amazing with his feet description seems to come from the fact he's on the books at City but so was Scott Carson I've no idea what his distribution is like as I say the only time I've seen the ball at his feet is when he made the gaff vs Liverpool I'd prefer Iversen if I'm honest as he's more proven but I'll back Steffen if we do bring him in and anyways I'm quite confident in Roberts as a number 2 if Steffen turns out to be the 2nd best Goalkeeper called Zach at the Boro
  6. Think they all prefer that Matt Turner now Fair enough if you've seen him, I'll reserve my judgement till he plays regularly in English football but hopefully he's good
  7. Cant say I've seen him other than the cup semi final horror show What makes everyone so sure he's class? Hopefully he's as good as people are claiming
  8. Spot on with this for me mate, would love for him to get a full season at a decent League 1 side Potential is there for sure
  9. West Ham fans saying the same about us and Jones Hopefully anyways, I'm worried about that link me would be a nightmare to replace
  10. Well as you've quoted mate I didn't write them off Also we were talking about Weimann And yes you're now giving context to my statement by naming those players or do you genuinely think I'd rather have a 23 year old Gestede than a 30 year old Ronaldo?
  11. Yes mate we need to sign the Gyokeres' before the Coventry's do but they must already have a proven record and be cheap! Yeah completely agree mate the way he ran Fry ragged is exactly what we're missing up front for me, I'd like to see him partnered with a quick striker who'll run in behind or someone to play just off him ala O'Hare, Twine would've been the dream Cheaper options could be that Riis at Preston or Carlton Morris who's just been mentioned but Gyok the best of the 3 for me
  12. When did I write off 30+ strikers? I'm one of the advocates for McGoldrick in as a squad filler a 23 year old striker is a better signing than a 30 year old striker with no context and with context we're talking about Weimann and Gyokeres with last season being an outlier in both their career records so far I'd rather take the gamble on the 23 year old
  13. You'll be happy with Gyokeres then You can't mean Weimann when you say consistent record surely If we're only looking at the Champ/Prem there are few strikers, who could be available, more appealing than Gyokeres
  14. Well I'd rather sign 23 year old than a 30 year old as one of our main strikers
  15. Yeah exactly mate how many of the strikers that scored more than him are now promoted or are 30 odd like Weimann
  16. The most well rounded striker in the Champ for me and £8m is a fair price, feel he's capable of making the step up to the prem as well He reminds me of Armando Broja
  17. Who could we realistically replace Jones with Ethan Laird, Conor Roberts, Yan Valery? Doubt there's many traditional right backs that could offer the same output as Jones, would probably have to look at wingers who could be converted Watmore do a job 😂
  18. https://www.hammers.news/transfer-news/west-ham-insider-confirms-unplayable-isaiah-jones-rumours/ Dont think I've seen this posted but seems there's genuine interest in Jones from West Ham, I think his head may be turned by a London club playing in Europe Need someone asking that ex WHU employee guy on twitter
  19. On Coburn I love how clinical he's been with the few chances he's had however if I'm being honest he didn't offer much outside of that and it's wishful thinking to see him as a regular player in what were hoping is a top 2/top 6 season in my opinion For me I'd much rather get him to L1 for a season to triple his game time and then if we don't go up he's ready for us next season and if we do we send him to the champ for a year
  20. It's a great little signing to bolster the squad for a year He has 63 prem appearances in the 2 of the last 3 seasons, 50 of them starts Last time Wilder had him in the champ he had a 1 in 3 record Maybe by spending nothing on McGoldrick for 3rd/4th choice it allows us to spend big on our 1st and 2nd choices
  21. Take McGoldrick on a free like Had his injury problems last year but season before he's scoring 8 in a relegated prem side
  22. Funny as that J23 was actually right you know
