    If Giles and lenihan are the first two through the door, I'm extremely excited about how the season pans out.

    Absolutely right, we have needed a leader with some steel at the back for a long time and Lenihan gives us that in spadefuls. Giles is a very good player and will bring balance to the team, please let this be happening 

  2. An interesting discussion with an insider from WBA regarding Gykores. He understands they registered an interest and were basically told it was £12 million upfront or £10 million with add ons which made them gulp a bit. Seems an awful lot for a player with one good half season in the Championship, or are Coventry just pricing him out of the market

    We desperately need a striker that can attack a header in both boxes, would help to solve a lot of our issues.

    It's not exactly like you have to be a big slow grock either. Someone like Sporar at 6ft1 should've been much more capable in the air. 

    Thinking back I am having great difficulty in remembering Sporar actually jumping at all, he was very good at pointing to where he wanted the ball though, world class in fact

  4. Whoever we bring in they must have the mental strength and”will to win” to play in the Championship. Too many times this season I have seen us panic and fold when games got tough, we need a couple of leaders to dig in and take back the initiative and I don’t mean just kick the opposition like Crooks tends to do

    It wasn’t an ideal couple of responses from Wilder but the hysteria surrounding it was a bit excessive imo.

    Can we use this post as the definitive full stop for this discussion as it really sums it up very succinctly

  6. I don’t know if Chris Wilder employs a Public Relations manager or not, if he does sack him, if he doesn’t then get one, appallingly handled

  7. Well that was a totally forgettable game but a hard earned point none the less. Do you remember the days when losing Crooks for three games would have mattered?  I have stayed on the fence over Connolly but now I just cannot see what his strength are and what he offers as a footballer

    Interesting stat there.

    Watmore and Connolly with joint fewest touches in the game so far - just 9 each.

    Think that pretty much highlights our problem of how little our forwards are involved in games. Then we wonder why they struggle to score...


    You had me at “how little our forwards are” oh for some physical presence up front to hold the ball up

    Not sure I agree. Both Bola and Jones are more than competent defensively. They just offer MORE going forward.

    Watch the first half again Peltier and Taylor are not as far forward and get into their defensive back five much faster than if we had “proper” wing backs playing

    He’s a bit of an old fashioned striker in the sense that he doesn’t do much if he’s not scoring.

    Unfortunately he’s not a very good goal scorer either.

    Still trying to think of some of his strengths, hadn’t considered old fashioned, well done Grimsby 😂
