    The fact that we have made a couple of poor signings doesn’t mean that all the players from the Belgium and Dutch leagues are rubbish. After all Belgium is the number 1 ranked national football team in the world and a large chunk of the squad were products of the Anderlecht academy.
    Lets have a debate as to whether those signings were even used to their best abilities and strengths. I say they were not.

      Of course they weren’t, it’s like expecting Dunk to be a blinding winger and then writing him off because he’s not and isn’t allowed to defend either, because he’s been told to stay in the opposition half.

      I'm sure when most of the boo-boys have a problem with their boiler, they flick through Yellow Pages, get a sparkie round only to moan that his plumbing is shitehouse.


      Anyway that's all academic now.

      I'm beginning to think it's the price tag our 'fans' can't cope with.
      As a new record signing is likely to arrive, this summer, all previous record holders will get a freer pass while we have to read whining like:-

      'well for that kind of money (not a lot) I expect him to jizz gold dust'.

      Because he’s much, much better on the left
      True.

      It will be interesting to see if GP plays inverted wingers but with VAR in full effect I’d much rather see Solly do what he’s good at, taking on a right back and dribbling for a cross or cut back. The slightest of touches? Penalty. Cross hits defender’s arm? Penalty. Much more dangerous than cutting in and shooting from 25 yards when there’s a gap.

      Yes good point, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Ali J or Locadia came good this season playing in a different system under a different manager.

      I think there will be a real sense of relief in the squad as players will have a fresh start AJ, Andone and Locadia have had a full season of PL behind them and hopefully will be well rested, World Cups and major tournaments seem to really take it out of players especially offensive ones.

      GP will give every player the chance to impress so I don’t anticipate many exits although I still fear Davy Proper might go. Come January it will be much clearer who will stay and who will go so I would anticipate a sizable chunk of the transfer budget being held back till then.

      I am excited about the coming season and being the eternal optimist I think the team will thrive but of course the fear of a grinding soul destroying season of anti-football has been dampened even though the fear of relegation lurks in the back of my mind.

      Makes sense in one way, however also worth remembering we stayed up by the skin of our teeth, hardly had a shot let alone score a goal and had the attacking pace of a snail, so I cannot believe we will hold sizable chunk of budget back...Jan would be too late!

      Spot on.

      Sorry, what I meant was, until a new player has been given a four paragraph eulogy (complete with pathos, bathos and allegory, with reference to how much better he is than all those players back in his day, when men were men, garnished with some homoeroticism) on NSC by none other than @Pretty pink fairy then, I'm sorry, he is shitehouse and not worth all that money. Fact.

      So to save me scrolling through, is there any further news on this transfer
      Seeing kids in the school or in the parks with Albion shirts instead of the big clubs and easy ones, that’s it. We have done it.
