Love Ayala, but his injury record means we have to seriously think about bringing someone in longer term

That’s what I’m thinking.. signing Gibbo might mean the end of Ayala

We need to continue to overhaul the squad, the out of contract players mostly will go, Shotton, Gestede, Johnson, Clayton. Friend may get some coaching role or player/coach but he can't be trusted to play many games at this level anymore, Howson will get an offer, Ayala, not sure.

If we get 2 CB's this window, potential on summer perms we should be OK.

Every player we court will need to have some pace. It’s such a difference to the team and so much easier to have a go at teams. Just look what’s happened to the way we play after getting Spence, Coulson, Tav, Roberts, Fletcher in the team.

Think it was Lurker who said that both howson and Ayala have been offered much reduced terms. I think both will extend and the rest will go.

IF.... Gibbo & the Spurs lad are both loan to perms that gives us them + Fry & Wood if no contracts are renewed, given that JW wants to play 4-3-3 that's not too bad, but if we continue to play a 3 we'll need more bodies in the summer.

 

 

that Laurent at Shrewsbury looked a good player from CM, might be only a one off but could be worth a look, if we haven't already that is.

Agree. Think it’s less important with the CB’s for obvious reasons, but apart from there, pace and natural athleticism goes so far, especially in the championship.

Augustin to Leeds is bonkers. What a coup that is.

It’s probably costing them huge amounts of money.

I dunno, if Leeds bork it up I reckon it probably won't cost them as much as Rhodes cost us and that's probably what they were hoping to avoid. I suspect it might be an automatically confirmed permanent deal if Leeds get promoted.

Leeds’ link to Britt just had to be agent talk and never serious...

    • I don't even blame the majority of the people getting on the trains because most of them will be key workers. However, if we can't manage the situation better then the tube would be better off just being closed, doctors and nurses could be put up in hotels close to their place of work or taxis should be laid on.  A packed tube will be like an incubator for the virus and the situation surely can't carry on like this. Another point is that apparently the construction sites are still supposed to be working as normal in London which will also add to the passenger numbers on public transport. Why aren't the government clamping down on the construction industry?  I'm glad to have lived in a society where we have a lot of freedom but in the current situation I think the government needs to exert more control especially in London. 
    • I mean, it was a stupid ass decision to reduce the number of services in the hope it would reduce the number of people per tube. Khan is saying drivers are self-isolating or are ill themselves. Obviously the latter is unavoidable but given the scale of the tube usage, surely tube drivers should be considered key workers too? How many of them will be in self-enforced isolation who could feasibly be working? Though I'm willing to bet it's not just key workers who are using them and perhaps an alternative is to start ensuring valid reasons for travel instead of just letting anyone use them. There's potential problems with all of the solutions but the main problem as ever is the people who use them. I lived there, anyone else who has or does and has dealt with the Central Line for a short period of time, never mind the 3 years I did, will know it feels like 90% of the people going to work in the capital every day felt they were more important and more significant to the world than the people around them, the very peak of the capitalist society we live in where some people would step on their dead grandmother for an extra few bob. It gets in your bones too, it's almost beyond your control to be the same as them because you know as soon as you hold open a metaphorical door for the more vulnerable, those who are perfectly fine will capitalise on your good gesture and will never give you credit for your good deed. This virus has levelled the playing field significantly in that we are reminded about how individually, we are all important and all our individual decisions can impact so many other people. The maths is simple. If you can feasibly do so, staying at home is going to be hugely positive in delaying the spread of this virus. It's important that those of us who can, do so, in order to allow those who can't to be less at risk.
    • It's sounding most likely that the season will be completed in June/July behind closed doors.
    • We would even settle for you up front Alan with Teddy as your support striker 😂
