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'd take a punt on Andreas Maxsø from Denamrk. Contract is running out so will be available for around 1 million. Plays comfortably in a back three, can use both feet and very good on the ball. But with Fry coming back I can't see us paying for a central defender even if we should move Hall on.

The Telegraph are linking us and QPR with Rangers' Jack Simpson. He's a left footed CB so sounds exactly what we need in defence to add balance there. At 24 year old he's the right age also.

Weren't we linked with him when he was at Bournemouth?

I guess if we go for the two for each position then the squad would need 6 CB’s. 
 

Wilder has been talking about January and is quoted in the gazette as saying 

“Listen, there might be some deals at the back end of the window, but we’re working on deals now to be ready for that FA Cup game at Mansfield, which is the first possible game.

We want the majority or as much of the business done for then, or certainly in time for the first league game after that.”

Can’t help but think good luck with that - it’s the type of rhetoric we here every window. This will be an early test for the new guys behind the scenes and perhaps a barometer of where things really are in the new golden age.

I think it depends where the signings are coming from. He's mentioned how good his contacts are with the top teams and about utilising the loan market. Those teams will want their players to go out as early as possible in Jan to get a chance to work their way into the team early enough to make a real impact in the second half of the season, so it makes sense for everyone involved to get them out on the 1st of Jan.

If you are playing with overlapping centre backs I'm sure Howson and McNair could fill in if we had injuries as could most full backs. We don't need 6 in the squad, you'd never keep everyone happy.

The problem with leaving Spence where he is is that it's strengthening a direct rival without any great benefit to us.

Forest are only a point below us right now, and could easily be ahead of us by January.

They are now above us.

Get him recalled.

Wilder does not want people to fill in. I made this point before but he had Connell as a left sided CB and went and got Jack Robinson and at his unveiling said we need Robinson because if we lose Connell people can come in but it affects the balance of the team.

So I think in an ideal world he wants 2 for each positon and if we unfortunate and lose 2 players from same position then he will accept someone will need to “fill in”

I don't see us having 6 centre backs in the squad unless a couple of them are young lads on the fringes of the squad.

We currently have 5 even excluding Wood plus Dijksteel and Bola slotting in.

Fry, McNair, Hall, Bamba, Peltier.

Hasn't Peltier spent most of his career at full back?

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
