    Example... Hudds survived last season just by making early signings and getting good early results... every little bit counts... we must name 8 good quality HGP's IMHO...
    I remember the panics and tantrums when Huddersfield made lots of early signings and we were deemed to be struggling.

    Now tell me, who got 40 points with games to spare and who struggled over the line at the last minute.

      No. Balogun replaced UH... and Bernardo is primarily a left-back (see Argus article)... also, neither are HGP's, and we are running up against missing out on attaining the 8 HGP's required, hence we have made a mistake letting CG go without replacing him...
      Indeed.

      It is fair to say :

      Huenemeier - > Balogun
      Rosenior - > Bernardo
      Goldson - >


      However, as Bernardo could play 4th choice Central Defence, then we could consider naming a 24 man squad with 7 HGPs and Ben White as 5th pick...

      ....IF he takes his chance in pre-season.


      Perhaps a better choice than paying Reading's £15 million ransom for Moore ?

      So what? They DID get over the line...

      I agree that Reading are bang out of order at that price, but that is my point... they know we are chasing a HGP CB, and we have stupidly (IMHO) let CG go without agreeing the replacement deal... they (and other clubs) now have us by the short and curlies... I used to negotiate multi-million pound contracts, and am certain we've messed up here...

      I prefer our way with planned and considered recruitment.

      You get your knickers in a twist about our recruitment every transfer window. Take some time off! The club know they need another CB, hence the pursuit of Moore. Whether we end with him or not who knows, but I'm sure we are on it.

      For me this is the big advantage of window shutting before the season starts, you have to address all of this before a ball is kicked.

      Hmmm... I agree with our recruitment approach, but I was just pointing out how marginal it all is... IMHO, we can't afford to end the window without 25 in the squad and 8 HGP's, and we shot ourselves in the foot by letting CG go too early...

      Hey, just my opinion, as I've made clear... may I suggest you stop over-defending the club...

      Yes, alright, good point, but I'm pointing out that I know what I'm talking about when I say we've shot ourselves in the foot with the sale of CG before replacing him, and severely weakened our negotiating position...
