Bamford been removed and chapman is on the list just no number... yet. Same as new signings

 

Surprised to see Nathan wood being listed in 1st team squad at 16. Looked solid v Hartlepool.

If we start the season with a front 3 of Downing, Gestede and Waghorn I’ll cry!

 

Gestede is still injured so we will at least start with Britt who scored a hat trick a few days ago. With no new signings I think we will see one of Chapman or Wing start. Wouldn’t mind seeing Chapman and Fletcher on either wing so Fletcher can offer Britt a bit support in the box. Seems to have had a decent pre season and ended last season in ok form.

Anyone who thinks Big Tone will start Chapman ahead of 34 year old 4 goals in two seasons Downing is going to be dissapointed come 2pm Saturday I reckon.

Yeah no chance that Chapman and Wing will start IMO. Glad they've got squad numbers though.

Dean Gordon had a clause in his contract, that when his son turned 16, he should be in the senior first team

And he should steal the first choice goalkeeper's number.

Nixon just said Bolton trying for Garner from Ipswich. Can’t see them letting Garner AND Waghorn go.

    • Who are the Gibson cheerleaders on this forum would you say? 🤔
    • Theres some very good points in here but the problem is because Gibson saved this club and gave us players like Ravenelli, Juninho and Emerson then gave us winning our first cup and getting to uefa cup final. He will think rightfully or wrongfully that this is his club to run how he pleases and the fans have had a good deal compared to what they had before he took over which is true. Theres alot of supporters who dont disagree with that they will sit through unconditionally in the stadium because of what Gibsons done in the past and never speak out against him.    I dont think Gibson by himself can fund premier league football anymore so I think thats now a pipe dream of us, I think he can do the championship with the right stable manager and recruitment team who will find decent players at a bargain and good tactics/coaching to get the most of the players.  The problem is getting someone like Woodgate in who doesn't know how to do that will alienate the crowd along with making bad recruitment decisions . You look at Mowbrays team and the players I think there was a appreciation that these weren't the best players in championship but they were solid and Mowbray usually got the best out of them and the crowd responded well to it.    Going back to the question of will fans turn against Gibson, I think some will but there wont be enough of them to make him leave because of the ones that argue hes made himself god of the club by bailing them out and giving them good times theyve never had before. 
    • We'll get a league 2 manager who is out of work because it will be another 'transition season'.  Just like this season was advertised by the club as being a 'transition season' (to league 1 - except those of us who mentioned the possibility early on were laughed at).  I've been saying for ages that Gibson is totally out of touch with the modern game.   However,  as long as we are in a higher position than when he took over, many fans will worship Gibbo. 
    • My worry is that he is about to take us back to exactly where he found us!
