Anyone know anything about this Sheyi Ojo? Being reported we've entered the race for him on loan. Seems like there are quite a few teams after him. All 3 clubs that were promoted made use of the loan market well so would be good if we could find someone who offers something different to our group.

Any ideas who's established and available, not just youngsters? We could do with a bit of cover at right back IMO? 😉

Not sure about this guy from pool,
Reminds me a little of the guy we got from Barcelona tbh
Loads of pace but no end product.

Mainbob what is going on?

I've agreed with you again!

Don't really see the need for Ojo if I'm honest.

I think green is a better prospect .

I think Mcshortface will be off . But who will be his replacement?

I'm being told we are targeting mitrovic on season loan off Newcastle.

Looks like we are bringing in, some talented youngsters . That lad Doyle Hayse, looked realy good this afternoon . SB seems to rate him, Green was good again and Mckirdy looked the part in the first game . A Dutch lad today and a French lad earlier, it seems we are picking them up abroad as well . Also we had reps in Italy, checking talent there I was reading . It all bodes well for the future . We looked better today at times, we still need to hold the ball better . But at least we are scoring, without letting them in the other end . Be interesting to see Brucies team against Watford, might give us a better idea what he is thinking . Onwards&upwards Villaforever.

I am very pleased to see young kids given a chance,
Hayes and o"hare look half decent,
But I do hope green gets a extended go in first team,
Always liked this kid,
Think that Xia is doing it the right way now with better planing.
All we need now is Bruce to get his formation and tactics spot on then premiership here we come,

Alan Nixon has just tweeted about how Hutton is close to a move to Sheff Wednesday, this is a bit weird for me. At the end of last season for a good 10-15 games he was first on the team sheet, people said he was playing out his skin for the contract extension (which he got), however if that is true or not, he was playing brilliant. We have 6 recognised right backs;

Hutton - first team last season, effort, passion and desire above anyone else, brilliant outlet down the right, positionally dodgey sometimes and final ball not always perfect (but no worse than adomahs)
Bree - lots of potential, has looked brilliant in games, but also got ripped to shreds by a 16 year old midget at Fulham last year.

De Laet - looked good before his injury, but could be 3-6 months before his completely back same way amavi was.
Richards - probably needs to go now just for the wages, not a good enough centre back and we don't need right backs.
Bacuna - more of a midfielder
Elmo - right midfielder/ wing back, probably too attacking to play out and out right back.

So from that I'd be looking to move on de Laet because we haven't got time to wait around for players and see if they can return to what they was, an then Richards.

Keep Hutton for when we play 4 at the back (which we'll have to on the first game because bakers suspended) and use bree as back up and let them push each other. And then have Elmo for the right mid or when we play wing backs. Keep bacuna in the middle.
I think selling Hutton would be a stupid decision, hope we don't.

I agree mate. Only player who constantly shows passion. Always an out for the ball.

NOOOOOO don't sell the scotish cafu so good passion workrate and i thought could of been captin only one that cares.

23 Jul 2017 12:09:16
I really don't understand the people that constantly slag him, he isn't that bad, only thing that is a huge negative is his caught out of position, but if he goes on a run and gets the ball out, it's down to other player to have the intelligence to cover the space he's left.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 12:55:47
I'd say it's a wages thing. Hutton is probably still on premier league wages.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 12:59:03
Elmo pushing AA for the right wing and keeping bree, Hutton and RDL makes sense, give RDL time to recover and if he isn't close come Xmas look to move him in then. The strength in depth is there, the 19/ 20 plus youth all depends on what we are classic as youth players freakish should be senior now and that then means we may be selling RDL/ Hutton/ Richards if we get the right offer.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 13:01:01
Agree with everyone about Hutton,
He has not let us down,
Defence wise not the greatest but always gives 100%,
Must be down to his high wages I reckan.

So it looks like trimming the squad is well underway and we are actually looking for the right price rather than letting players go cheap. Ross McCormack as been left out the squad for germany so happy we have a great owner.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

23 Jul 2017 11:38:47
I don't think Sunderland have got the money to pay 6-7 mil for him so I could see us end up loaning him out again which is weird. His on a huge contract so if we can't get him off the books completely we should utilise him, people we're raving about him in the friendlies but whilst he didn't look over weight his first touch was abysmal and he missed a hat trick of chances in the first game.

That being said his record speaks for itself, he looked half decent last year when he was overweight for us, so got to be worth a space on the bench if we can't sell him.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 11:58:37
I would get rid at whatever cost hate him. like we are ment to be gratful that his not 25 stone his a footballer on thousends a week mate. Flackie saves lives for a living and his git nowhere near his wage how is it fair? Loan him sell him let go free the guys a joke mate take micah with him.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 12:11:48
I think he did take liberties last year and maybe has a chip on his shoulder, but whilst Kodjia was his for us I remember 3 times before January where kodjia passing to McCormack who would of had an open goal would of won us 3 games. Leeds being the distinct one. Someone mentioned him having a divorce or something because of living apart but it all sounds like bull to me, he has an attitude problem.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 17:53:45
McCormack needs to go else where imo

The lad apparently was going through divorce, but he also looks like an alcoholic to me

When all is said and done we all have issues in our personal live throughout life, but you still have to go to work and do your job!

I would sell him, along with gabby!

I would then bring in Hernandez from hull if possible

Hogan
Kodjia
Hernandez
Kienan Davies
RHM

Wouldn't be a bad strike force.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2017 21:34:31
my sources are telling me that elphick vertout amavi steer on loan will definitely go out and Richards gardner Hutton and McCormack are others we want to move out and then we will look to bring in another forward on loan and a left winger. lots of names i'm being told for both positions.

Has Hepburn-Murhy travelled with the squad to Germany?

He hasn't appear in any of the pre-season matches. Is he injured does anyone know?

I was thinking that

Has Grealish travelled to Germany as he hasn't been seen either

On "leave" after international duties but I would have thought he would be being involved by now?

Following SB's purchase of several senior players I hear that the team will come onto the pitch for home games to the Dad's Army theme.
In years gone by we've had the Power Game and The March of the Gladiators.

Are we about to sign another Gabi?

Agree0 Disagree3

18 Jul 2017 18:34:00
A lot of the players being linked now will no doubt do a job but are very much "meh" signings. Just read on twitter from an account that usually gets things spot on, that we're competing to sign Tom Lawrence on loan, that is a signing that should get everyone excited. Arguably kept Ipswich from any relegation trouble last year, and he does it with some bangers aswell.

The owners twitter seems to imply that there are 4 incomings and about 7/ 8 outgoings, can think of Elmo and Whelan incoming so Lawrence could be one of the other 2. Can't think of 7 or 8 players who could be going, wouldn't want to see veretout go because he's a very good player when in the right environment, amavi I can see the positives with a 8 million plus price tag but attacking wise he's one of the best full backs in the league and without him we have one recognised left back.

Would be brilliant to sell Richards and the like but can't see anyone taking gabby, McCormack has looked in acceptable shape in pre season but his first touch has been awful, if we could get six or 7 mil for him would be good business, hogan kodjia gabby (as he won't leave) and Davies would be enough cover up front.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

18 Jul 2017 22:29:48
Just saw Veretout is off to St. Ettiene for 4.5 million, what did we sign him for? I see he AVFC, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year sale is still going. That's robbery in this market, especially after the season he had last year. Something doesn't seem right here, either it isn't happening or we're desperate for cash.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 07:14:19
Or that's the only offer we have had, and we need to drastically reduce the playing staff.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 09:40:20
Ffp is the reason,

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Jul 2017 13:30:55
See we are now linked to a Greek player,
Would have to have a wide shirt just to print his name?

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Jul 2017 13:26:06
Why the need to drastically reduce the playing squad even at the cost of getting robbed, rather have too many players than too little if it means waiting to get a proper offer. We're being taken advantage of if he goes for less that's 6mil.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 13:28:05
If FFP is the reason then we're desperate for cash. To put it into perspective we brought tshibola for 5mil. I don't see the rush in reducing the playing squad, so much so that we end up getting robbed ourselves, would rather have a bigger squad and wait until end of the window or January where we can dictate the price and get closer to what we paid.

He played majority of games for saint ettiene last year, scored 3 goals, finished 8th and got knocked out by Man Utd in the europa league, we should be telling them if they want him permant, as he will be a first team player we want a minimum of 6/ 7mil, if they don't like it then wait till them and other teams are desperate/ panic buying.

Rushing to sell these lads to buy players like Whelan and elmohammedy (30+) is so short term that if this gamble of throwing everything at this season doesn't work then next year we're stuck with OAP's that haven't been good enough for 2/ 3 years, other managers won't want and will be impossible to move on, similar to gabby and Richards.

These sort of decisions mean that if this season doesn't work we'll be stuck in this league in a right mess for years to come. We have to be promoted this year, the business in this window is crucial to that, we can't afford to mess it up.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 14:08:05
You can only have a certain number of players given a squad number, with the additional being made with youth. So to keep them wouldn't be cost affective if they won't be around the squad, as wages etc.
Sometimes I guess they cut the cloth accordingly, get players out, to get some in. Not for cash flow, but for numbers.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 14:14:53
Chrisavfc

The chairmen said at begining of preseason that they were only 1 million to spare or else they break ffp,
So we have to balance the books and get rid of players before bringing in other signing,
That's why the transfer deals are dragging on until we get the dough from selling players,
Fair play to Dr Xia he has spent the money since he came in but it's being wasted on average to crap players,
The recruitment has being dire let's face it,

Agree0 Disagree2

I agree we must come up this season or we could well be another Leeds and be stuck for years to come.

Hutton, bree, bacuna, de laat, elmohamady, adomoh. Why so many right sided players? My guess would be bacuna and de last to go, which would be a shame for de laat. I just don't want to get to the first weeks of season and to be hearing 'it takes time to gel. '

Are Man U having second thoughts?

Seville reject Amavi as crocked with a bad knee, then they come back today wanting him on loan!

There's having bottle, then there's taking the p@@@

I think it's the later!

I'd say yes to the loan but.

Initial £3m for the season loan

Fixed price to buy him next summer at £15m with 20% sell on clause to be paid to us when they sell him.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Jul 2017 17:14:38
Amavi should stay now and play in a attacking role and show these Spanish piss artists what they are missing,
If he has a good season his value will surely go upwards,
But having said that can't see Bruce playing him if I'm honest,

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Jul 2017 17:19:07
On another subject what is happening with cissoko and gil?
Seems cissoko was in Turkey to sign same with gil in Spain?
These transfers are really dragging on.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jul 2017 08:55:27
the cissoko one is most likely held up because he thinks he's a good player and wants that sort of wage but they won't pay it.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jul 2017 12:22:10
Have just read that amavi has failed his medical. Any truth in this.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

10 Jul 2017 12:57:46
Yes mate the deals off all tho not injuyed his medical reports show his knee isn't the same after the injury he had on international. Could explain why he isn't the same player. Worrying nobody has gone and financial fair play rules say we can't spend so going to be tough buying could be loans instead unless we sell.
