Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Yeah I've said before we need to do this. Not accepting mediocre loans that are mid table Championship at best. We should be looking to RM, Barca, Benfica, Porto etc clubs that always have young South American talent. Franchu at Real Madrid is at the top of my list as a replacement for Saiz. He rem...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Hope we are looking in South America where the pull of Bielsa may really mean something.

Needing players who know the league is a myth, just need to get the best players we can who suite the system.

South America could be a goldmine.

Re: AS Roma in For Bielsa

Girona have made MB their number 1 target apparently. Recently relegated from La Liga so could offer MB the chance to manage what he couldn't with us, promotion. MB does have a connection to Girona having worked with Aspire Academy. And crucially maybe Girona could support MB with probably better si...

Liability.

Isnt a good enough player for that to be acceptable.

Vieira, Ramos, Keane etc they were like that but worth it because they were extremely talented.

Berardi is an ok defender, not worth the risk, hope he never plays for us again.

Re: Radz on Derby

Derby found a way to cheat the system same as Wolves did, Radz again just comes across as bitter. Hasn't he learned that football isn't fair yet? Besides what Derby did didnt stop us getting promoted, we screwed that up nobody else. Dont like it when he does things like this, frankly its none of his...

Lasogga on a free anyone? No doubt in my mind he would score loads in this team. He was a great finisher, not like he just scored tap ins. As long as he took a paycut of course.

Re: Samu Saiz

Getafe dont want him and Phil thinks we would be lucky to get our money back never mind any profit. I understand the personal reasons but given what happened to us I'm pretty annoyed at Saiz and am really baffled with us not getting a replacement. Will Saiz go down as a flop? Talented on his day but...

Re: Dan James-DEAL IS OFF

:duno:

Phil has also said basically we were in no way innocent.

Always felt that while Swansea clearly had their issues we definitely tried to take the piss to save a few quid.

He is off to Manuare anyways as if it could get any worse.

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

The thing is that from the start Bielsa made the best out of what he had. Now that shows that he doesn't have to have the perfect players and could still do well. Now if for example MB identified players in a way similar to computer games he might have say 20 categories that he would rate the playe...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Mon 20th May)

That's actually truly pathetic and actually imo the one least at fault is Casilla. His job is to be a sweeper keeper so he does the right thing. Berardi doesnt even challenge for the header for a start. Ayling is redundant the entire time. Cooper just has to make sure Marriott doesnt get to the ball...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

I take your point Cjay but the key is to find the right players which we haven't for a long time. The hope would be that Bielsa and Orta can between them get more right than they get wrong and the major point is that we also have a manager that can improve players. So if we sign the right young pla...

I don't get you at times Cjay, you keep banging on about Brentford being brilliant at signing unknowns then selling them for profit yet when we do it you criticise. If we get decent money for KP that is because Bielsa transformed him into that player, we'd have been lucky to have got £100k for him ...

Think Jansson will go, seems to be this strange obsession within the club to want him out the door. Like last summer when about thesame time last year actually people were mentioning being told that Jansson and Vieira were being touted around by the club (how desperate is that). And it turned out to...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

The difference is academy players don't cost us money, so worth the risk. Might be spending money on players who are no better than what we have. Yeah wages would be an issue, but I reckon he'd get 30 goals in the Championship easily. He is lethal. Sometimes its worth the risk though, over the year...

Are they any better than what we have in our u23s? League 1 is poor compared to the Championship, look how strong Barnsley and Sunderland are. My dream signing is Andre-Pierre Gignac. He's a natural goalscorer, had his best season at Marseille under Bielsa and wouldn't s**t himself under the expect...

So what happened this season, injured or not good enough for bottom of the prem club?
Maybe didnt fit the system? Injured? Dont know.

Funnily enough though in just 360minutes of football he scored 2 and got an assist.

Pretty good that.
