Ben Whiteburn is his name. 24 year old midfielder being chased by Barnsley & Blackburn.

He describes himself as a box-to-box midfielder.  The one area of the squad we really don't need to prioritise.

Joe Williams is also a box to box I think, so we're clearly looking at that.

Agree. There could be some credibility in this one. I assume we decided against Stewart as we are happy to pay a fee for someone in same position as opposed to snap him up on a free.

We really need more league 1 players. They really showed last season how easy it is to make the step up🙄

Not all BD we need to be paying one million plus for league 2 players. Did you not get the memo ?

What if it's an English League 2 player? 

Dilemma for Blanco! 😉

It would appear from the outside that we seem to be working down some kind of list regarding midfield transfers, if that’s for 1 or 2 we don’t know. What is worry is that there just doesn’t seem to be any noises coming out regarding attacking players lately.. This has to either suggests he is happy with what we have (worrying) or we are waiting on the PL loan choices to decide first possibly?? Even then you would still think any others we are going to look at would start to be heard just like the midfield links.

I think in last 48hrs I have read on here the following:-

a) We need to look overseas
b) We need to stop looking overseas

c) Stop signing unproven and untested players from lower leagues
d) Why can't we be like other clubs and find unknown gems in the lesser known leagues.

e) We need to stop paying over the odds for average dross.
f) Why are we not paying over £1m for a league 2 player if Brentford are.

It is what makes this forum special 😊

Maybe the whole package will be cheaper

If we had a mix of players from overseas and domestic to create a balanced squad, then surely that would be best? 
As a result of favouring the domestic market, surely that is showing that our lack of quality is being exhausted in the domestic market. 

It’s as you’ve mentioned, we’ve made wrong decisions in the transfer market, AND we keep going down that avenue of domestic purchases. 

The numbers are a fact of our dependence on the domestic leagues which have brought lack of quality. We should address that and look elsewhere. 
 

 

I don't think the location matters, that's my point.  It's the quality of the player not the nationality that matters.

    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
    • Surprised by Quest as last week they were talking about how abuse of refs isn't right. But they has to be something done want some sort of VAR  in the championship as is very much a big spotlight on it. If a ref makes a blunder it can hinder their career like the Blackburn ref he hasn't had a game since.  I don't want VAR to rule of finger nail offsides but if they could see these game defining incidents would be alot less controversy and loss in reputation for the refs. As that ref must be feeling very anxious his decisions been shared all across social media right around the world. If was VAR the spotlight wouldn't be on him he wouldn't be receiving the abuse. Its needed to protect the refs really otherwise spirals out control.  In league 1 or 2 isn't the same like spotlight on it doesn't matter as much.
