    Seems like we're signing Barrie McKay from Rangers and possibly Adam Bogdan from Liverpool. Decent.

    A new rumour how exciting, makes a change from Leonard, Holmes or EEL



    Seems a decent player, wouldn't mind him

    I actually like Friday games provided it's a "big" game. Helps if you win as well because it puts you in a good mood for the whole weekend.

    I wouldn't mind it as much if it wasn't the first game of the season, but I like kicking off the season at the same time as everyone else, know where you stand after the first game in comparison to everyone else etc.

    Leonard apparently staying at Southend. Don't really care, only really wanted to sign him to wind up my girlfriend. Happy with Saville.

    Conor McLaughlin having a medical at some point soon, so he's pretty much signed. Got the two best fullbacks from League One last season in Meredith and McLaughlin. Very happy with that.

    Fee agreed for Jake Cooper, would love to sign him, class player. Really need a LCB considering Hutchinson spends most of his time in the medical room.

    Fred Onyedinma contract talks still ongoing. Kid is doing my head in now. Sign or ❤️❤️❤️❤️ off, simple as.

    Gregory Morison
    Ferguson Williams Saville Wallace
    Meredith Cooper Webster McLaughlin
    Archer

    Subs: King, Romeo, Hutchinson, Fred, Thompson, O'Brien, Elliott

    Should be more than capable of avoiding relegation with that side.

    Loaned out Scott Burgess to Macclesfield. He's way better than that level.

    Hopefully we repeat the result of our first game back in the Championship last time round.

    David James' first game for Bristol City. Conceded 3, poor bloke.

    Club record fee for Ince so looking like it'll end up at over the £10.5 million we got for Hendrick. So we've got over £30 million from Ince, Hughes, Hendrick, Grant and the Martin loan fee in the past year which basically covers all the shower of sh*te signings we've made over the past 2-3 years. Rowett has effectively pressed the reset button :joy:

    Despite the sales, our team isn't looking too bad, just need a replacement for Ince and then maybe an extra midfielder, but I'm hoping more are on the way out still so Rowett can bring in even more new faces.
    Carson
    Wisdom Keogh Davies Forsyth
    Thorne Johnson
    New Vydra/Nugent Russell/New
    Martin

    Still more than capable of challenging for the play offs.

    Starting to look a strong team now, probably better than last season once we have finished spending.



    Think we will mostly swap between 4231/4312/352 next season. Got loads of attacking options now, and Gilliead looks like he is rejoining from Newcastle as well. Just need to bring in a few defenders, McMahon and Sattlemeiar signed new deals yesterday as well.

    Class, our local paper has him all but signed for the Boro, proves that journalists are clueless cretins

    George Long has joined Wimbledon on loan, expecting a new keeper soon, most likely Adam Smith

    Team is coming together;
    Fryer
    Henry Wilkinson King Martin
    Turgott Beautyman Gorman Kennedy
    Godden Newton

    Sarll said he wants a RB, CB, ST and CM which is understandable as Gorman is still young and Henry isn't good enough. Apparently Derby and Leeds are interested in Kennedy, but he needs another season at this level IMO

    Bournemouth signed Mahoney and he's going into their Under 23s team where as he'd of been playing first team football for us or Boro. What a nob.

    It's only going to keep happening, teams are looking at what Chelsea have done and are stock pulling all the best young talent, there's little risk or cost and the reward could be pretty high. Chelsea have stock pilled a ridiculous amount of youngsters and even if very few ever pay for Chelsea they'll still make money on them selling them to smaller clubs (Solanke and Ake are prime examples) Everton have followed suit and more and more Prem clubs will start to do it

    Ahh. Nah, our local paper has become quite bad for stories, they just take any old rumour and post it for a few extra clicks. Think this one came from here:
