Well he's followed Akpom on twitter so we'll use that as the barometer for him coming.

Is this recent or could he have been following him for a while?

The only thing i dont getvis if were after bolasie then why is browne staying. He was struggling to get a look in when we were on bare bones. Then we sign roberts and bolasie....he dosnt stand a chance 

But Browne stepped up when called upon, and I think NW really appreciates that kind of thing. We’ll still be pretty short of players and I think with more coaching there’s a lot to come from Browne, especially if his attitude is good.

If we sign two today it's been a good window, I'd say, as long as one is Rahman.

Not gone overboard like Forest, but have filled most of the trouble spots in the squad. I'd say the only potential hole is CB but Wood may step up and that's only an issue if injuries take their toll.

Anyone else wondering if this is all simply a case of Chinese whispers? 
The other morning, NW arrived at training with a small cut on his chin....

Marvin: « Is that a cut on your chin boss ? »

NW “Yeah, a nick. *turning round to look for his first choice left back, Mark* Bola, see if you can find me a plaster”

 

so... Yeah, nick, Bola see ... becomes Yanick Bolasie

Gave you a like because that attempt was awful!😉

If we went back to a back 4 which looks possible if Rahman and Bolasie sign, what would be our best CB pairing? Dijksteel and McNair?

We'd surely be playing Dijksteel at right back if we went to a back four, maybe even McNair. 

Spence isn't a great defender, Tavernier isn't even a defender.

I'd have Fry right and McNair left. Hall as backup with Dijksteel and hopefully a new guy full backs. Fry looks 200% better on the right side and McNairs pace and comfort on the ball makes him the ideal partner imo. Just haven't been convinced by Hall but I guess hes a option depending on what team we are playing.

My only concern would be Mcnairs willingness to make that his position though. I always get the vibe he spits his dummy out a bit being asked to play in defence.

Meanwhile, Chelsea left-back Baba Rahman's loan to Middlesbrough has hit a hitch. 
 

Watford are also interested and will try to hijack the deal before Friday's domestic deadline.
 

Small line from the Mail article last night about Moses going to Russia

Them following each other probs means he's already here and training I hope. 

As someone said earlier, we've done our business quietly this window but have filled most gaps.

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
