Morsy payero with crooks as one of the front 3 is my assumption (especially if we're going with the 523). Though I think it will be morsy and howson for at least the first couple of months as payero acclimatises.

Offer has been accepted bauser has had his critics but he has pulled masterstrokes on both of these.  Now over to you Leo!  Payero small issues look sorted should be an announcement tomorrow or f

Gibson doing a Gibson. Having another punt, pushing for Bolasie, this Argentinian and money available for a couple more. (Not a lot though) Spence going for £5m

Not been keeping up but Sporar should be sorted by Tuesday

Payero isn't as well suited to being an attacking runner and finding the space as was evident against Egypt. He is better receiving the ball and making the inventive passes to the forward runners of watmore, Tav, Ameobi, ikapezu. Like he did against Argentina

It's a bit weird that people are randomly trying to sell off McNair, has it gone that quiet?

I'm not trying to join in with getting him sold but wasn't there some stuff about us being open to selling him at the start of the summer?  Or was it just that there was the odd link with him and a move?

Quite possibly, there was lots last summer with Stoke etc but can't really recall for this summer

Do think you have a point. In a back 4 there's no chance he's starting before Hall or Fry*.

Then in midfield we saw Warnock prefer Howson, Saville and Morsy a lot last season, we've effectively replaced Saville with Crooks. So a presumption on my part, but I'm thinking Warnock will stick with Morsy, Howson and Crooks as a midfield 3. To be totally honest the times McNair has played midfield, in my opinion, he's not been a standout performer. 

That said if we are going to be playing a 3 at the back McNair is absolutely vital for us. His ability on the ball and bringing it out of defence is crucial if we are to play a 3.

* If they are both fit.

I think your final sentence there is key, Fry and Hall won't be fit all season judging off recent history. That said going off pre season I think he's likely to start in midfield alongside Morsy and Payero (if he comes), Crooks will be higher up the pitch

Where do you think we will play Crooks then?  Out wide or rather tucked in?  If we have a three man midfield then that would only leave 3 spots open ahead of them?

I think he will play off the striker or as a second striker, he's a strange one because he started as a CB, moved to defensive midfield but his success at the end of the season has predominantly came higher up the pitch either centrally or in the 3 behind the striker.

In reality, I have no idea how we will set up mind but that's just my guess going off pre season games so far. A lot depends on the strikers and attacking midfielders we bring in too

It's not just the end of the season, it's two seasons with Rotherham. 10 goals in L1, 7 in the champo.

Just seen training video club released today. Did not see Coulson, Wing and Bola.

Bola continued absence from pre season is a worry.

Howson was back and I expect him to get minutes tomorrow.

Bamba and Patterson were also taking part in everything. Would like to see Bamba in action v York tomorrow.

All three recovering from injury. Coulson did his thigh, Wing is getting a scan on his shin & Bola is still recovering from that hernia.

Think NW said they expect him back for York though, so guess we wait and see!

Yeah them 3 are injured but Bola injury is worrying. As is Sammy Ameobi’s. Hopefully NW can shed light on that tomorrow evening

Ahh I'd thought he started the championship season in midfield

Think even when he plays as a CM he plays as an attacking one anyway nowadays, so it's basically the same thing really with him. He's going to be in the box whether he's running there from deep or from near the front.

Yeah the Ameobi one I'm hoping is simply it's lagging behind after the self isolation and it's nothing serious.

    • Not overly so, says he has a decent relationship but wants to play more and if it means a loan, then he is up for it. sometimes we tend to be a little hard on young players if they have a poor game but if he cracks on, whoever is here when he gets back may want to include him in squad...  still has a way to go and experience will do him good. If he can't deal with Scottish forwards, then he may not be as far along as we hope, but next year or two should see if he is going to make it and I think he will not be found wanting.
    • Watmore will hopefully run rings around their tired legs second half. Would expect Jones and Watmore on for Uche and Sporar for an attacking refresh then Siliki on and Crooks at CB when they shove the big subs on. 
    • Why is that mate? Can't say I know anything about Cardiff these days. 
    • Well off to my lads now to watch the game so see you lot later, my input today is over for a while. @The Colonel and all the other City fans thanks for your input today and the compliments regarding oneBoro forum, hopefully you maybe somewhat peeved later on!
