very disappointing .....

.......... xfer window so far. with just over 2 weeks to go all we have done is brought in firpo, who looked assured but he has never played in the pl. lewis bate, is he really seen as a 1st teamer?

that is it, a bit of a worry. anyone brought in now, will not be a starter, will need time to get up to speed, bielsaball.

to progress we must improve, no time for sentiments boys & girls, we need quality.

....... or is this a year consolidation in the pl for now, after spending lots last season?

thoughts.......

come on guys we have lost a duracell bunny & signed quality in firpo AND that is it, we need quality to progress

We finished 9th last year. It was our first year back. If we maintain that this season then I will be happy, and with the squad we have now then I think we should. Any further reinforcements will be a bonus.

Upgraded in the position we needed upgrading. That's the important thing.

Not to sound like a negative a*se, but, if we stay up next season I'll be happy as a pig in the proverbial. Anything above that will be gravy (and massively welcome).

Think 9th-11th and will be a success. We have potential to finish above, but anything above will be a great achievement.

Kammy’s criticising lack of signings but at the same time questioning the need to sign a winger on the transfer rumours thread. Makes for an interesting combination of moans. Especially when combined with his heavy criticism of Costa. I guess there’s no pleasing some folk.

We will sign two more players (after the go) and probably spend around £30m on the pair. Will be the biggest squad we have had under Bielsa and if anything will not be leaving enough gaps for opportunities for the u23s.

Anyone else feeling Greenwood & Gelhardt will be
in the first team before season's end? Both (to me)
seem to have a ton of skill. I can watch Greenwood
hit free kicks all day long.

just cos you don't agree with me does mean i am right or wrong, just my opinion lad

consolidation is fine, how ever myself would like us to progress & to do that we must sign real quality

I know that. I don’t understand your position though. You’re moaning we haven’t signed enough players on one thread and saying be we don’t need signings on another.

One of the greatest fallacies of modern times is people thinking that something being "their opinion" means that it can't also be right or wrong to think that way. You're contradicting yourself, for a start.

Bottom line is we don’t know the finances at the club.
Been a lot of money lost to covid
Millions of bonuses paid out to players and ex owners
Jka threat of £25m

Easy to sit here and say spend some money but I don’t see many clubs spending loads at present?
