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 😂).

I don't think we will be comfortably top half with the current squad. I don't think that's mental at all. As you say we are not blessed with real talent at wing backs, we have very little creativity and pace hence we are very predictable. Top that off with a threadbare squad that's only a few injuries away from fielding acadmy lads with not real experience. To think we will be pushing for play offs with this squad is metal😄

If that's metal, then I am Iron Man

I never knew we had him. We usually get it right when releasing youngster but he one we got wrong i guess... 

Could have been his decision. He was only with us a year - when he was 13. Came from York City, lived in York and went back to City. Homesick/didn’t like traveling/wanted back with old mates? Difficult age and maybe he and his family took decision. 
anyway good luck to lad. It’s certainly ended well for him.

Very hard to tell with a 12/13 year old too, given how people develop differently

still been the better side in majority of games with all those flaws with playing the academy lads and only lost one of the first 4 and are comfortably midtable right now. So pretty mental to suggest we would become worse than we are. even though we will only get better anyway once the current players adapt to the new system and all. you becoming way to negative these days lad.

to add to that, no pace? britt akpom tav spence coulson dijksteel johnson fletcher are not exactly slow are they. we are not a slow team. we have one or two slow players who are cb's that it. the rest are quite quick or average, like sav/howson.

We definitely have more pace and energy in the squad these days and even in the past our issue wasnt necessarily all about the lack of pace of the players but more the lack of intent to break quickly, I think a lack of pace in our current squad is definitely overplayed

    • wasn't it when he got divorced? his ex-wife was going to get a huge piece of the debt and therefore the club so he said *** it
    • In that case we’re gonna be signing Messi, Haaghland and Pogba going on the eternity it takes us to get anything over the line 🤔
    • I'll definitely be cheering for Denmark. Hope you stuff those Russkies. If you play anything like you did against Belgium, you'll get through. VIKING POWER!     
    • Thats why I can never like or support Italy. They're ridiculously good footballers...but they even put our PL teams to shame when it comes to "simulation", time-wasting etc. Going down like they've been shot the moment an opponent comes anywhere near them. Disgusting...and they've always been like this, even going back to the 90s.  
    • Well we do seem to be hamstrung on 2 fronts with this. First, we don't seem to have a competent recruitment team in place to identify potential signings a good way in advance of when the window opens. Basically relying on Warnock, Jepson & Blackwell having spare time to do it themselves. Second, we're probably going to struggle to match the wages other clubs can offer. Or trying similar shenanigans to the Danny Mills saga and missing out because we're trying to get them really cheaply.
