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 😂).

Green, Roberts, and a left back on loan from a Prem team would mean we can play 4-3-3... and look a much better side I reckon.

Something like the below would feel so much better than what we have now. Spence and Johnson aren't good enough to play wing-back and it's killing us every game IMO. 

---------------Bettinelli---------------

---Howson-Dijksteel-Hall--(loan LB)

--------McNair---Morsy---Tav-------

--Roberts---Akpom/Britt---Greene

Why are you playing Howson at RB when Dijksteel was bought to play RB?  You've left Fry out to accommodate that arrangement too.

I think Browne should be competing against Tav for his place in the team. Surprised he’s not been tried there yet because Tav’s form has dropped since end of last season. 

I'm of the opposite opinion, I think Tav has been our best midfielder to start the season. Although I agree that Browne should be competing for one of the central positions either as a second striker or a number 10.

Because Fry is poor. I like Dijksteel at CB, he's strong and composed. 

Howson can actually pass/cross unlike all our other RB options.

Honestly you can have all the strikers in the world but if you don't create chances they can't score. Like the issue we have with Britt is he is a striker who runs in behind but we don't have that creative player who can play him in.

I mean, he did have a good chance on Saturday....

Dijksteel as a centre-back in a two would be hugely concerning to me. He'd have to win a lot more of his aerial battles, right now that's not really his area or where he's getting challenged, he is half a centre-back and half a right-back, he's covering the opposition's left side channel in order to keep Spence higher up the pitch, he's also able to step up into midfield and out wide in this formation we're playing right now and he's not gonna be able to do that in a back 4.

Personally I think we should be sticking with players who can play in a 352, one of the many flaws Woodgate had was just persistent chopping and changing of formations.

We have players who suit 352 and I think if we stick with it we will come good.

Bamford demanded assurances that he would be first choice when fit. he never got them. He then, through his representatives, engineered a move away. This is how it went from start to finish of his exit process.

This is definitely not what several of us on here heard at the time... That's pretty much the PR spin to a tee.

I was of this opinion but our wingbacks are proving to be ineffective (Spence is inconsistent and Johnson is just bad again) and that can't happen in  a 352. We looked good when we changed to the 433 at the weekend, so maybe we do need to investigate that again...

Didn’t bamford say in a tv interview that his agent told him Leeds were interested and he told his agent to get it done?
