Sorry I just needed to see kids as off to London tomorrow until saturday.   Randolph - West Ham tried to renegotiate with us and wanted a loa  as they couldn't be sure with injury... woody s

@Lurker, @diggerlad07 @Smoggydownsouth and all the other ITK posters. Thank you for all the ITK info you guys share. Think i speak for everyone when i say it is much appreciated. Without it the l

Roberts is done. As someone has said, Ayala is on £25k a week. Don’t know what he’s been offered but I can’t believe it would be £5k. Randolph is gone, assume it’s West Ham.    5 more

Things going around twitter about Patrick Roberts to Leeds. Hope they don’t swoop in last minute

The thing is if Roberts went to Leeds he'll just be taking the place of Clarke sat on the bench. If he wants game time his best bet is the Boro.

Clarke and Roberts either side of Fletcher would be a big improvement but must admit we still need some real pace in my opinion. 

I thought Clarke and Roberts were both quick? As is Coulson and Spence. A bit more trickery in the middle would be nice.

Personally would describe them more as tricky, certainly not slow but I’m talking the sort of pace defenders are terrified of in behind.

We need pace as in quick decision making and quick passing, there’s more to football than just pure pace. It’s rare to get a player like Traore who can actually control the ball at pace.

After what we’ve had the last few seasons Roberts and Clarke would do me fine.

Looking at putting together a new recruitment team

Finally this has only needed doing for about a decade

Yeah, but Bevington didn't put the old one or the current one together and as he was appointed to head recruitment then you'd assume that if we wanted to do something new then he'd be the one tasked with doing it.  For him to leave at this point in time because we want to do something new doesn't really make much sense.  I'm surprised more people aren't wondering about it all.

Perhaps he was tasked with changing the recruitment team and process but failed?

Are you saying a potential front 4 of...

Roberts——Tavernier——Clarke

——————Fletcher—————

with Spence and Coulson as full backs isn’t enough pace? As others have said, there’s no point in just bringing in players with pace and nothing else. We want players who have pace but also can beat a man, play quick one twos, know how to use their pace with good movement off the ball and link up with other teammates playing fast tempo football. 
 

Walcott and Traoré are probably quicker, in terms of raw pace, than the likes of Sterling, Mane, Bernardo Silva, Mahrez, Messi, etc. but I know which set of players I’d be choosing if given the choice.

Possibly although I don't know if there's any evidence for that.  You're the ITK chaps, if you get a chance ask around and see what gets said or don't if you think it's boring and you're not bothered 🙂

    • If Muniz does fall through we really do need to get some players in sharpish We've lost 30 goals from the players who've left, including 6 of our 8 top scorers (assuming Akpom leaves) and so far have brought in 15 goals with Ikpeazu, Crooks and Ameobi  This for a side that's already notoriously low scoring and lacking in creativity What worries me is the absence of links to wingers and attacking midfielders other than Lazaro and a few washed up has beens  11 days till Fulham...    
    • What will happen is; Muniz will go to Athletico We will bid for Lazaro We will agree a deal for Lazaro  Fulham will bid for lazaro We will buy Smith from Rotherham
    • Get begging Muniz to join us Twitter link
    • He will undoubtedly sign for Fulham and play for one of the most inoffensive clubs in English football in one of the least intimidating grounds in England.  He won't have a clue though. 
    • Yeah that is what I meant. Fulham never technically beat us to Bryan. They beat Villa to him. We were technically not in running for Bryan as far as player was concerned. His 3rd and final choice.
