Unfortunately you won't hear from sds as he has moved on from the forum due to certain things going on.

Bullied off the forum by his arch-rival, diggerlad.  Shameful 👎

I think someone said we were talking to Tyler Blacketts representatives. If Johnson signs though that would leave him, Coulson and Bola so maybe overloaded there. Hall came out of the blue.

You forgot Friend.  Johnson, Coulson, Bola and Friend gives us more than enough at left back, just as long as you're not wanting anyone decent to play there, cos Coulson won't be under Warnock, and the rest of them are dross when it comes down to it.

I think he's just protecting himself. He said the same in his 10am presser, then went on to say that he backs himself to do something special and that he wouldn't be here if he didn't think we could be aiming for a high placed league finish next season. He also regards what he did at Rotherham as a miracle, and called staying up with boro as his toughest ever job. He might call the prospect of promotion next year a miracle, but he also clearly fancies himself as a miracle worker. 

It's a mid-table squad at worst.  There's no miracle required, just some decent signings and decent management.

Yeah I suppose so, but then how many left backs do we need. Isn't the squad imbalanced enough without having a fifth left back.

We need at least one decent one and I'm not sure we have that with what's available.  Another reason not to extend certain contracts.

“He said, ‘I’ve just come in, I can not push for you. You are the type of player I like, if you stay you will play, I want you to be my striker for the next few games so it’s up to you now’.

Really worried we're going to sink what little money we have in some donkey striker when we have 2 good ones already if Warnock's saying that to Gestede

It's a pretty interesting read to be fair. If that is the case, yeah...I think we can expect another Gestede style player.

I thought Warnock said that he told Gestede to bugger off basically?

To be fair to Warnock he walked into a club on fire his first move can hardly be telling Gestede he should have stuck to gymnastics and book him the first flight to France his man management's all about telling players they're the best around wouldn't look too much into that wasn't long after he cleared him off.

Pretty clear by our pursuit of Moore though that Warnock does want an aerial striker and you can't blame him Fletcher and Britt don't do that part of the game, whatever striker we sign I'd guess 6 foot 2 would be a minimum height requirement I just hope he doesn't go too far down that list like you say there are alot of lampposts out there.

I presume Warnock doesn't think the alternatives are any better than what we have within budget, which is refreshing, otherwise we will end up with the situation we have in midfield. Plenty of numbers but little quality.

    • As CT alluded to possibly on another thread, some people like to knock our young lads at every opportunity. I don’t get it.    he’s really not played a lot yet gets criticised half way through the first half. Last game he got criticised after less than 10 minutes. He ended up having a good game overall and deserves credit for that, not criticism.    but on a more positive note, what a great result against a team we’ve generally struggled against my entire life. 5th in the league is very good when you factor in the teams we’ve played. Dare I say, the football today while not amazing was also not too bad. 
    • Still depends on what you're looking for. I'd say some of the bigger ones include: World of Warcraft Guild Wars 2 The Elder Scrolls Online Final Fantasy XIV EVE Online Runescape Black Desert Online. There's a new one coming in early 2021 that looks quite interesting called New World.  
    • i said it last season, the kids will keep improving and be even better as time goes on. thats what we see now. some of the football today was nice and need fast football. players involved were the young lads and bola. they know eachothers game they are pretty familiar and now the confidence is coming for them we are seeing them express themselves. the shackles are coming off and the young lads are starting to show us what they can do. give it a few months if this form keeps up these kids will be flyin and the goals will be flowing. lot more to come from us yet. well done NW you can see they all love him he's like a grandad figure to them never mind a father figure. he'll give them the love and build their confidence and we'll keep seeing the results of that in their performances, UTB.
    • NW says he has been training at Rockcliffe for the last couple of weeks so his knee must be ok now. NW wants to get him so who would argue with his judgement? Not me.
    • I can't believe it was 5 years ago when I posted this.  Are there any good new ones out that people know about?
