Betinelli

Dijksteel-Fry-Hall-New LB

Howson-Tav-Morsy

Winger-Britt-Winger

That's not a lot of work over and entire window. Selling McNair might even go a long way in securing wingers like Roberts and Murphy.

so remind me whos trying to sign mcnair and for how much? stoke took obi mikel over him..

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then 😂).

GK - Bettinelli

CB - Dijksteel
CB - Hall
CB - Cunningham

RWB - McNair
LWB - Coulson

CM - Morsy
CM - Saville
AM - Tavernier

10 - Roberts
ST - Assombalonga

Two signings, creativity from Roberts, Tav, McNair's good deliveries and Coulsons running. Saville to link the midfield roles. That'd do me.

Surely 343 is the perfect compromise? I didn’t get the ‘but we would concede 5 goals every game’ argument last time I brought it up, I’m not particularly sure why we would.

We could achieve this simply by bringing in 1 wide player, Murphy or Roberts being the obvious examples for the right, fletcher has played left forward plenty of times for us and akpom has also played that position.

If we did go that route I’d be tempted to put Dijksteel RWB to allow for ‘Roberts’ (example) to have more license to sit higher up. And Coulson at lwb to provide more width as if we played fletcher or akpom there we’d want them drifting more central to support Britt.

........McNair.......Hall.......Fry

I know we probably won’t go this way, it’s just an example that we could play with ‘wingers’ quite easily with just one signing rather than the total overhaul some are suggesting.

If we are signing Cunningham I think it will be for the LWB position. He's played 200 games at LB, 13 at LM but only 20 games at CB. 19 assists and 7 goals from LB position. Looks fairly solid and can only be an upgrade on Johnson. Sell Bola for anything we can get.

Hey guys, does anyone have any strong opinions on whether or not we should sign some wingers?

Also, not sure if he’s been mentioned, but does anyone think we should sign Marcus Maddison?

Yes, we all know wingers pace and creativity will help us. I’m sure Warnock isn’t daft and sees that too and also knows at some point we need to be able to change system. 
 

So the people adamant on ruling out getting any wingers or full backs just wait and see. Warnock isn’t stupid.

Warnock signed Greg Cunningham for Cardiff after they went up and then did not play him. Then sanctioned his loan move to Blackburn last summer to Blackburn which was cut short due to injury.

Not saying above means Warnock does not want him but Cunningham might not want to come based on above.

What so you think we've signed a big technically limited forward to play on the left wing? When its Tavs best position and Fletcher can play there as well? Where do people come up with this stuff from?

I feel like I post this same post every few weeks.

Far too much gets made of formations from fans, 5 at the back doesn't have to be negative and neither does 1 up front. You can play 3 up front and still be defensively sound. 

Its all about having the right balance of players and the right attitude. Good teams don't have players stuck in rigid positions they are fluid and blend between formations throughout a game. 

We could play 343 and still be solid at the back.

Firm beliver this is the way forward for us, we could be the new wolves 😉, just need a left sided center back and a creative player/winger.

Wolves weren't successful because they played 3-4-3, they were successful because they had good players in the right positions, playing for a manager who understood how to get the most out of the players and the formation. I think Warnock will get the most out of the players, whether he will get the best out of the formation time will tell. But one thing is for sure, trying to squeeze our whole squad into a formation none of them fit into is not the recipe for success.

If you don't resign Johnson you're left with Coulson and Bola at left back niether of which are proven left backs at this level (nor is Johnson btw)

So if we don't re-sign the player who isn't good enough then we'll be left with the other two players who aren't good enough?  There isn't a voice somewhere saying "why don't we sign someone who is good enough then?".  We're wasting money on a player who isn't good enough, and doing that at the expense of actually fixing a problem area in the squad, which will still be a problem area in a year's time, when we still have the other problems to sort out as well, cos really we haven't sorted any of them so far.

    • If Smith signs i would imagine he would certainly be arriving as back up and not main striker. Secondly 10 goals and 3 assists for the team that finished 2nd bottom in league imo is not the worst record. Yes he wont get pulses raising but Kieffer Moore hit 10 goals for struggling Wigan last season and in a better team his return was better and we (whether people like NW or not) are better than Rotherham. I am not for one second suggesting Smith will score 20 goals for us like Moore has for Cardiff but he would not be worst back up target man if that is what he arrives as given his numbers last season.
    • 224 but ran out of time 🤦‍♂️ It felt like I spent 5 mins just trying to remember Mark Summerbell's name, which wouldn't be so bad but he wasn't the person I was even trying to remember.  I was actually thinking about Steve Baker and the League Cup semi final against Liverpool when he did that man-marking job on Steve McManaman.  I think Summerbell was the lad who was going out with one of Robson's daughters while he was playing for us?  Quite a few I didn't get from the last 5 years or so really.  Didn't even get a couple from the current squad 🤭
    • Doesn't even hold him in high enough regard to tell him the truth about his future when he signs a contract waiver, according to Downing. I imagine that feeling is, or at least was, more than mutual.
    • Maybe we can now put that statue up of Downing which Pulis thought he deserved. Albeit I don't think Steve quite holds Downing in such high regards as he used to
    • "Rotherham United's Michael Smith is someone who is thought to have impressed Warnock and ticks several of the boxes of what the boss is looking for up-top." Worried next season will be an even tougher watch, can't say I've seen much of him like but average record and presumably a donkey type?
