I think we won a medical award of some description during Karankas time, that does ring a bell

When Bryan English joined from Chelsea. He's since gone back to Chelsea and he's their medical director.

Lumley?

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

I read yesterday that Andy Carrol is on £1,000 a week at Reading due to the FA sanctions. Really surprised we didn’t make a move for him under Warnock.

Made his first start for them and scored before going off injured, consistent is Andy!

@diggerlad07 have you heard anything about the alleged FC Copenhagen links that were bandied about in the summer and that we had been to some of their games. It sounds like they are expecting to do some wheeling and dealing. I remember that someone mentioned we were interested in Jonas Wind and I never thought - and still don't think- that he is a realistic option, but he has since lost a bit of form and have now said that he could be willing to move on in the january window. There haven't really been any clubs mentioned and I think the general feeling is that he is now available for around 7-9 mil. pounds. With  the way we are set up now under Wilder I reckon he would fit right in. Technically very good and a hard worker. A bit like Sporar but a lot stronger and much better with his head. He would certainly be an upgrade.

I remember mentioning him last year as someone that I had heard mentioned, but that was before Scott, so have no idea if it would still apply. At that price, it would probably be a bit of a stretch, but I suppose might be just about doable..  what is his attitude/injury history etc?

His physique is great and always hard working. Never stops running and likes to drop a bit deep to participate. Very hard to get the ball from. As an opposing fan he can come across as a.bit of someone who believes his own hype too much. 
Muchael Uhre will also be available on the cheap as his contract runs out in the summer. Last seasons league top scorer and leading the charts again. I’ll be honest I never rated him but he’s come on leaps and bounds these last two years. His team plays 3-5-2 too so he would fit right in. But if the same career trajectory as Pukki has at Brondby. Blistering pace and has developed his finishing very well. Could be a fee as low as 1-1,5 million pounds. This is his chance to move abroad so I doubt he is signing a new contract.

Think West Ham want him currently

Sounds like we'll be in the market for a keeper (or two) unless someone impresses Wilder this month.

Is Wilder a manager that prioritises keepers that can play it out from the back? Neither Henderson nor Ramsdale had a good pass accuracy whilst at Sheffield which then improved when they left for other clubs so would assume he prefers a no-nonsense shot stopper who gets the ball up the pitch quickly.

He said he just wants one that "stops the ball going into the net" 😁

After this season I'm inclined to agree

Boss your area, control the back line, save shots, prevent goals. If they can pass, fine it’s a bonus but I don’t rate passing a priority. I see team progression as when Tav decision making improves, stops taking the extra touch, shot accuracy and scoring goals.

Was getting a bit worried there with our yearly link to Windass not appearing 😂

    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view  
    • Maybe if he was Slovenian and not from our academy he'd be the best thing since sliced bread 🤷
