    Those of you who keep saying, we shouldnt loan players, and play our youth....dont you think if they were ready for that, then they will be in the squad? you cant just put these kids in from our academy, if they aren't ready. The club from Mel Morris, to Cocu are keen to use our youth, so they'll know if they are ready or not. Not you. Not me. 
    Our crowd arent the most patient of fans, If we arent controlling the game in the first 20 mins, the crowd is onto every mistake, not the best situation for our under 18's to be in when they're trying to prove themselves. 
    Also, imagine, Cocu is here to prove himself as a manager, he didnt have the best experience in his last role. There is massive pressure on his shoulders to do well, not just this season but overall. He can't afford to lose games just so our youth players get experience.

    I'd argue I've not seen many people hit a ball like Wilson can in the flesh. I'd say that's an elite trait.

    Never understand the reasoning people give about not getting loans in. If our own youth were good enough, they will force their way in, just like Bogle. Loans can be the difference between staying in the champ and getting promoted.

    Signing permanents with the same quality as Mount, Tomori and Wilson would cost over £50 mil mate. Give them 4 year deals and that’s positions blocked off to our academy players.
    If we think Knight, Sibley and Bird need a year or two then we sign a loan for a year and re-assess after the season where our players are, whilst giving them some opportunities in cup games etc.

    What is hugely important is, he knows the league well. Cocu wouldn't be able to when the season is truely up and running properly dedicate time to research all opponents if we're playing Saturday - Tuesday, so getting someone in who knows the league and knows how the teams play is critical.

    A very rare, almost universally liked pundit for Sky's coverage of the EFL; alongside being assistant coach to the 3rd best U23 side in the country last season.

    Comes across as intelligent, professional and generally a good guy.
    And he should have a very strong knowledge of the Championship, which was the primary reason for the role being created.

    What if Josh Bowler is loads better than JML? He's bound to be further ahead in his development than Mcallister who's been unable to walk for most of his adult life.

    FFP is a rule. It's taken from company accounts it doesn't matter how much you spend on a player. For example we spend £10m on Tomori we loose £10m in cash but we have a player worth £10m, we don't need another £10m to come into the club as we have lost nothing, we would have Tomori and he is worth £10m to us. However what has been stinging us is their wage, they do count so if we pay Tomori 20k per week that is £1m expenditure for the year to offset against your income. we have apparently we have some 30/40/50k players that do not even play that much which will be coming off our income. 
    Where the players values do come into play is where you loose players such as Butterflied who has been valued at x amount for the past 3 or so years leaves for free which is an instant multi million pound loss on our accounts.

    If ffp only takes affect if players leave for less, meaning we’ve made a loss...why don’t we go for tomori. Very unlikely we will be selling for less than we buy him for in this market. Another good season in this division and his price will rise yet again

    I've always thought its just a boring link up until now. It seems its inevitable now. I'd rather they just got on with it because I want whoever takes over (preferably Jokanovic) to have as long as possible to shape the squad. 
    Just hurry up
