Back in for Morgan Whittaker?
at 08:40 12 Jun 2024

It wouldn't surprise me at all. I think he had bigger fish to fry in January but he didn't have a great end to the season so wonder if interest from the likes of Lazio and more established PL clubs has cooled. Expect Rooney will want to sign a few and Plymouth will have to fund that via a player sale.

First 30 games last season - 17 goals, 7 assists
Last 15 games last season - 2 goals, 1 assist

We know he is a player we have a longish term interest in and we like going back for players we've identified and tried to get previously.

Rushworth
at 09:23 9 Jun 2024

Heard that from a few different places/sources now so seems he is actually someone we want. Brighton paid £20m for 21 year old, Dutch international Verbruggen last summer, so you'd have to think Rushworth is going to be available this summer. Premier League football is his next step and Brighton could well think his value is maximised at the moment after a great loan spell last season.

What sort of fee do we think he will command?

Does anyone remember him standing out in the 4-3 win against Blackburn at PR? Seems to look the real deal right now but in my mind Morsy/Luongo won the battle that day?

Following on from Joe's thread below...

I think we need a couple of experienced PL heads. Your Aluko/Keogh types a level higher - albeit we will want them to play more minutes than those two did. We have to remember that next season is going to be a step up for our on pitch 'leaders' like Morsy/Chaplin as well. They are going to need some help.

Brighton have signed the likes of Lallana and Milner in recent seasons. Luton got Barkley and Townsend.

So my question is, who would be available and possible? The below is probably a decent starting point. Danny Welbeck would be a fantastic pick up but sounds like he's about to agree a new deal at Brighton. Cresswell another one with a wealth of PL experience, a big personality and would be great around the squad.

Where does Omari rank then?
at 09:57 28 Apr 2024

Got to be a contender for our best loanee ever?

Genuinely believe right now he is one of the best players in the league. His growth over the course of this season has been excellent to watch. The lad is absolute box office and destined for the top (hopefully via a permanent move here on the way).

Most games in this league are fine margins aren't they?
at 08:05 14 Apr 2024

There's only been more than 1 goal in it in 11 of our 43 games this season. We've been very good at coming out on the right side of these tight, fine margin games so it's frustrating that in the last two home games we haven't managed it once. We've been the width of a post away from winning both games. But on the flip side, Vaz had to make a couple of very smart saves yesterday to prevent us losing.

Another two points on the board and we would be looking almost home and hosed for me with serious pressure on Leeds in particular. Just got to wait and see how things play out over the next couple of weeks now.

Made a few appearances now for Wolves, including two in the Premier League. Clearly made a good decision in leaving as he wouldn't have been anywhere near getting a kick here.Not necessarily a criticism of us but food for thought when people criticise players for leaving. The grass can be greener. See also Liam Gibbs who managed to move up a division (at the time) and get more of a chance than he'd have got here.

Leicester, it's actually disgusting
at 10:36 3 Apr 2024

That we could finish on a record points total not to get promoted whilst they have just posted accounts with a £90m (pre allowables adjustment) loss. And that includes the big sales of Maddison and Fofana last summer. They extended their year end by a month presumably so they could include these. Seen some basic analysis that has worked out they are likely more than double the PL £105m limit over the 3 years.

They then went on a spending spree this summer to supplement an already PL squad knowing full well what their finances looked like. They then rejected bids in January for KDH knowing full well what their finances looked like. The 2023/24 numbers will be a joke. Absolutely taken the piss.

He isn't normal is he? Put aside his quality on the ball, the engine he has is absolutely ridiculous. 97th minute of a game and he is still running like it is the first. Someone on here recently posted some insight they'd heard that he is genuinely genetically a bit of a 'freak' (may have been Clive Baker).

He is some boy. Loved him thumping the badge on his chest at the end too.

4 goals in 108 minutes. Be surprised if there is a better goals to minutes ratio than that knocking about for any player in any league!

Leeds drawing with 10 man Huddersfield and Leicester losing at home to QPR. Suspect many had those down as absolute banker wins.

Moore
at 11:33 26 Feb 2024

A lot of talk of us having to adapt how we play to accommodate Moore, but other than that second half at Preston to an extent, it hasn't really happened yet has it? I expected us to perhaps look to get earlier crosses into the box and really use his aerial prowess but we've carried on in our usual style being patient and looking to work openings.

That being said, there has been moments when we've been able to beat the press by clipping a ball into Moore and we've seen Hladly go longer at times. His hold up play has been exceptional. I can't say we've really missed any facet of Hirst's game (not a criticism) and he has the additional quality of aerial dominance in both boxes. We really could not have done any better in terms of finding 'Hirst 2.0'.

He's got to be one of the best players in the league surely? Got absolutely everything in his locker to go to the very top. He's getting better and better by the game and I don't see how he can be left out of the starting 11 right now. Genuine match winner.

I'd say, lets get the game won and then we can worry about 'resting' players.

Are we at the no (or virtually no) rotation stage now?
at 20:15 17 Feb 2024

I think so. The team almost picks itself for me with the only question mark over which of Hutchinson and Burns starts. When we got to this stage last season, McKenna went with a settled 11 and I can see that happening again.

What a colossus he is! He's so important to this team. Wins everything in the air, adds balance with that left foot (another perfect ball to Davis) and brings the best out in Woolfy too. Fridge didn't do a lot wrong at all, but we still really missed him when he was away. I'm sure we'd have conceded less goals.

Can everyone try and be positive now?
at 07:23 11 Feb 2024

30 games played, 60 points. If we'd accrued those at a far more even rate, everyone (well most) on here would be buzzing right now. 4 points off Southampton with them still to play at home. 3 points off Leeds with a game in hand.

The likelihood is that one of the two teams with an inordinate amount more resources finishes above us, but we are still well in the race going into 9 games in a row against bottom half teams. We are still scoring plenty of goals and creating plenty of chances. Much like this time last year, it feels like we are not far off it all coming together and being able to go on a run of wins.

Do we need to start making changes earlier?

We seem to be ending games so much stronger than we start it. The last 3 league games I've felt like the opposition has been on the ropes and saved by the bell. If that goes on another 10 mins today we win.
