  1. Best secret Santa present I’ve ever had!
  2. I disagree there were some games where we played teams off the park - thinking specifically about Swansea, Preston, Birmingham away, Bristol City, Huddersfield, Bournemouth and the second half against Brentford as well as the recent match against Norwich. I don’t think the issue has been quality at all. Quite simply after Bielik got injured Rooney started to get clever and then he got defensive...and he stayed defensive until it was too late.
  3. Not sure that’s true some of the comments after a loss are knee jerk and irrational.
  4. Sorry three signings at the back, one John Eustace type, one winger and one striker
  5. Agreed with most of this. Three signings - if Marshall goes do we need to buy another GK - not sure. He has made a difference this season as he proved against Luton. Roos has played very well in his place. Would prefer him to stay but if he wants to go I think I’d give Kelle another go.
  6. Well yes .. there is that ..
  7. If we had to sell to reinvest in the team, it might be more useful to sell Bird. I’m thinking that we have Sibley and Louie Watson as the AM role Shinnie and Knight as the box to box and Bielik and another as the DM. I like Bird and on his day he can be a cracking asset. Trouble is I’m not sure we’d get as much as we would for selling Knight. regardless of who we sell I hope Rooney gets someone in that’s in the mould of Eustace. A low fee/free who is simple and effective. If we are going to sell we need to buy players who fit our game plan and not who are simply good players... and then play them out of position.
  8. Lots of comments on multiple threads point to Sibley finding it difficult to perform this season as he had a lack of support up front (due to rooneys defensive approach). Joz has had that all season. Poland are no mugs and he plays a lot better for them than he does for us. The point remains that if he and Poland have a good tournament he could well be a target. the Bundesliga maybe? He will also be cheaper than a lot of the alternatives. His wages will not be anywhere near those of a lot of the players at the tournament. Chilwell is a top 6 PL team defender and Joz had the beating of him in an under strength Polish team. Like Joz and would like him to stay but he could potentially fetch a good fee and it means we keep our Crown Jewels as the OP calls them, for another season.
  9. Potentially. I’m not staying it will or should happen. Just that alongside the homegrown players he could also be a potential sale to fund team investment. Depends on whether a club sees him as a solution. It’s normal practice for players that perform well in international tournaments to be the subject of transfer interest from PL/Bundesliga/serie A clubs etc Whilst Joz hasn’t lit up the championship this season he has had a year in England now which may be helpful in their decision making. Whilst not homegrown he is still very young, 22. If he had come through the academy and was going to the euros how would we value him then? I only suggested West Ham etc as they will need to spend to bolster their squads but will not want to break the bank.
  10. I’m not sure what you mean?
  11. Sorry meant to add that depending on both his performances and how well Poland do in the competition Joz could fetch £10-15 million ...?
  12. I’ve been thinking similar but after Jozwiak’s recent international performances he could catch the eye at the Euros. A West Ham/Villa/Everton? Might fancy him if he does well. Everton and West Ham will probably be in Europe so may need a bigger squad.
