    To often we let players go on the cheap and that is part of the reason why we are in a mess.

    I’d be more confident of success in the model if we’d had the balls to stick by Cocu.

    It's always the U18 and U23 retained players and new scholars that I look forward to seeing

    Based on how he struggled with certain aspects if his game in the Championship, I'll be extremely surprised if he's playing PL football next season

    It's horrendous that we have had 3 stabbings involving employees of our great club. What is the world coming to? Admittedly Phillip Cocu allegedly being stabbed in the back may not be in the same category as the other two stabbings.

    1. At the start fo the summer we had a very young squad, so adding experience was viral
    2. We only made 4 permanent signings so the second youngest signing being 28 isn't really a concern
    Did he suggest it as an absolute must or a dream?
    Have they not been successful at it because they haven't invested enough in the youth setup? Norwich were promoted in 18/19 with Lewis, Aarons, Godfrey and Cantwell as regulars. Reading were 7th this season with Rinohmota, Richards, Olise, Holmes and McIntyre making up their first team. Both are two of the biggest academy spenders in the league.
    How do you know for sure a £10m signing from the Bundesliga will be a top player in the Championship? You don't. But, by scouting/watching you reduce that risk. Having watched every game possible from the U18s and U23s over the past 10 years I feel I have a reasonable ability to tell if a player is ready to step up or not.
    Our CBs are not ready to step up for anything more than in an emergency right now. Whereas McDonald and Ebosele look ready based on what I've seen.

    Hence why we didn't bother recruiting Marshall, Byrne, Ibe, Jozwiak and Kazim along with the loanees this season?
    Explain how we're falling foul of P&S. I see we've been found guilty of filing non-compliant accounts, but nothing else.
    You seem to be arguing against as point that no-one is making. @angieram quite clearly stated utilising the academy AND first team recruitment. That means recruiting to fill voids the academy products can't. For example, our U23 CBs aren't ready to be regulars in the first team, so we'll recruit 2, 3 or even 4 of them this summer. However, Ebosele and McDonald are ready to deputise for Byrne so we won't be after a RB
    Marshall, Byrne and Jozwiak have been very good signings, with two of them proving exceptional value for money. Kazim was also recruited as a backup or even 3rd choice CF and also proven to be goof value. We took a punt on Ibe due to our financial position which so far hasn't worked out. Te Wierik seemed to be a victim of circumstance, both Covid and a change in manager.
    Last season we signed Bielik who was one of the best players in the league before picking up another injury and Shinnie who again has been good value since signing on a free.
    There's enough evidence there to suggest recruitment has improved, but we'll soon see how much of that was down to Cocu's influence.

    Its probably a good thing for us that Bielik won't be playing for Poland at the euros or we'd probably lose him as well.
    Joz usually does well internationally, so it will probably push his price up at least.

    Burnley rumoured to be considering a move for Kamil Jozwiak this summer as part of their scouting guide of the European Championships.
    I guess they have 25 million to part with.

    No way I'd be letting Jason go for £5 mill. We've not been relegated so the vultures can either stump up some decent cash or he stays with us. Frankly, given the fact he came through the academy so cost us fook all and won't be on a fat contract either, I'd be telling Brighton and anyone else to jog on unless they make a silly offer. Some of our young lads have just come through an absolute baptism of fire and I'd expect them to be far stronger players for it with that experience under their belts, assuming Wazza decides to play them to their strengths this time around.

    I'd hate to see him go. He has an engine like Roy Keane. I don't think I have ever seen such gung ho full power at 89 minutes, then add in evident skill and tghat he can score......  If we get off the back foot one day then JK will be a monster

    As much as I like Clarke, I feel we could get better value for money by signing someone other than an established Championship centre back. We need to start being smarter with our recruitment, and I don't think that would include signing Clarke on a permanent.

    We clearly see things differently. Knight, Bird and Sibley were all far better under cocu and personally i think he managed his youth contingent very well. All of them are going backwards under Rooney and nothing will change in that regard.
    We need to sell whilst they still have some value and they need to leave before we irreversibly cripple their careers.

    With the weather being so awful I haven’t been down to the bottom of the garden much to see Old Trampie.
    Caught up with him at the weekend. He was sporting a black eye he’d got fighting some new tramp on the block called Erik. Apparently, Erik had come off worse and hadn’t been seen since. Old Trampie was celebrating with an apple pie he’d found while bin raiding.
    Make of that what you will. 🤷‍♂️

    It’s impossible to live further than 70 miles from a coastline in England. And you have to live in ‘Coton in the Elms’ to do that.
    I’m now going to lie in a darkened room and weep silently at the revelation that @angieramtells lies 😥

    I heard Erik was backed up by others who scarpered when the authorities arrived.
    Suspect Old Trampie called their bluff. 
    Glad he's getting at least one of his 5 a day.
