Agreed mate. We obviously have to temper expectations given the opposition but taking the game for what it was, I don't think anyone really came out of tonight looking poor as such? Can't think of anyone off the top of my head, anyway.

Yeah there was no one I thought was poor on the night but I didn't really go in with any pre conceived views, can't help but think it may be confirmation bias

Normally we lose these pre-season games so to win 3-0 regardless of who the opposition is has to be seen as a plus

Can’t remember which season it was.. where we won most of not all pre season and then started the season badly. I never pay much attention to the results really just a fitness exercise, but it is nice to win at least

Bola is recovering from hernia surgery, Ameobi has a knock and is isolating because his wife has Covid.

That explains why they were missing.

So say we get payero and sign this Oldham lad, on top of the 4 already, what else are people wanting.  Another wide player and striker for me, and possibly a back up keeper if stoj is off.

Fisher probably out the entire season according to the gazette

Good job we signed Peltier, though I imagine he will play CB as Dijksteel goes to RB

Anymore word on Bamba? Wouldn't mind giving him a short term or pay as you play contract.

Pretty sure this was under Monk.

Looks like we are paying for all these players by the amount of shirts we will be selling in South America this year. Presume they like dark green!

Boro set to become as big as Iron Maiden in South America. 😁

Under Woodgate we played two friendlies on the same day with two different squads, a side made up mostly of reserves beat Bishop Auckland 7-1 and the first team got done 5-1 at Heidenheim. Robert Glatzel scored a hat-trick.

This is with regards to Bahamboula. Sounds like we might know more within the next week.

If he really is going to only cost 150k (which I can't see no matter how much financial trouble Oldham are in) we'd be incredibly foolish not to sign him. Hell I'd pay up to 500k for him.

I don't think it's that surprising a price given he's a 26 year old at a small financially struggling bottom half League Two club.

I'd say it's worth paying, so I'd assume we'll go for it.

    • I think Tav is what he is, a skilled footballer with good ball control but lacking a footballing brain which has held him back from making the next grade. He is useful and can beat defenders but you never get off your seat watching him and when he lines up to shoot nobody expects him to score indeed it's probably more a case of wondering just how far off target it's going to end up. For me the problem is supporters having unrealistic expectations from him. He's 22 years old, his "development" is behind him, at best he might hone what he has but I would be amazed if he suddenly became a world beater. He has reached his level, with maturity he may refine some flaws but his decision making is the weakest part of his game and if your head isn't telling you what you should do in the next phase of play at 22 then it isn't going to change anytime soon.  In short he is decent at this level, no more no less, with a tendency to believe his own hype which I suspect is one of the main drivers behind such poor decision making.    
    • I have a cousin called Ruaraidh (Rory), Gaelic names get proper wacky!
    • =6th on goals scored. Missed a week too! Somehow find myself just above the relegation zone!!    not going my way this season!!
    • I actually think he’s improved significantly since he was dropped for that one game a while back. 
    • It’s not necessarily criticism (the way I see him), it’s more frustration. He has everything to be one of the best players in the league. He just needs to improve his end product. Personally think he should be getting double figures for goals and assists every season with relative ease with the ability he has. It’s great that he’s a threat and getting in shooting positions, but unless he actually improves his end product it’s not really helping the team. Just think he could really reach that next level with a bit of composure. Saying that, if he did improve his composure, he’d be a premier league player - quite easily.
