  1. Especially after COVID, I imagine many people are in the same boat as I am... and by that I mean: will support the team through thick and thin, but won't pay good money to watch rubbish.
  2. What I think we need most: 2 x CB: would only have 1 of Jags or Mengi... there's not much height in there otherwise! Mengi and A. Nother for me (Tom Lees still hasn't got a club). 1 x 'Bielik-esque' DM: Not got any on trial... however Tudor Baluta could be available on loan from Brighton? 1 x CF: Liam Delap would be a great option. Which probably means we'll end up with 3 wingers and Tom Carroll...
  3. I think we've got to stick with who we've definitely got @IslandExile just in case! I wouldn't be surprised to see a back 4 of: Byrne, Solomon, Forsyth and Buchanan against Salford... and I reeeally don't like the idea of Forsyth starting the season as our first choice CB!
  4. Echoing what many have already said... We played some decent stuff but there was a familiar lack of threat up front. Honourable mention for Ravel Morrison, who did a lot better than a lot expected. Are there any decent target men out there without a club? Diedhiou? Gestede? Hell, even Andy Carroll?! We relied far too much on CKR last season... he needs some help up there!
  5. Eiran 'the Irish Tomori' Cashin for me too. If it wasn't for the odd badly timed injury, I think we'd have seen him on a few occasions already.
  6. Same reason (I imagine) people commit adultery... get fed up with your main 'team' for whatever reason so go and see your second 'team' so you can enjoy a 'game of football' without particularly caring 😂 To answer the OP's question, Burton have been my second team since Nige took charge in the late 90s. A relatively sustainably run, local club.
  7. Was going to say the same myself @RoyMac5. Sell one of those in the shop and I'll be straight down there with my wallet. As for this season's kit, it's better than last season's but still... meh. Think we could have done more to commemorate the most successful era in the club's history. I'm also not a big fan of having a betting company as a sponsor (but understand they're in a contract etc. etc.).
  8. I know you're the man @Dimmu when it comes to Finnish football, so if you think he's not suitable for Championship football then you've got more of an idea than me 🙂 I'd also forgotten that he'd played for F*rest!
  9. Surely there's some younger defenders out there on frees/loans?! We've already got Curtis to fill the 'seasoned veteran' role at the back. Stearman's awful and Jagielka's nearly 40! Frees - Tom Lees? Thomas Lam (Finnish, but is a regular part of their national team, so should score enough points)? Loans - Axel Tuanzebe/Teden Mengi from Manure? Jarrad Branthwaite from Everton? Get George Edmundson back from Rangers? All would be better options IMO.
  10. 50 years since our first league championship win? Surely this would do as a home shirt with red numbers on the back and some sort of lettering 'League Champions 1971-72' around the Ram? All for the light blue charity away kit if that happens.
  11. "Regrettably"?! The EFL really are a bunch of dodgy, vindictive Bamford's aren't they? Fingers crossed this finally means the embargo can be lifted and we can bring in some players. I imagine we've already lost out on some targets who weren't prepared to wait.
  12. With no additions: Marshall Byrne Davies Cashin Buchanan Knight Bird Sibley Jozwiak Kazim Lawrence With additions (I've only included freebies for now... and Bielik would still be injured): Marshall Byrne Lees Baker Buchanan Knight Thomas Sibley Jozwiak Diedhiou Lawrence
  13. Great. I can now add Wycombe to the growing list of 'clubs I dislike'... which is a shame because I like seeing small, sustainably run teams hold their own against the big boys (despite, arguably, they shouldn't have been promoted to the Championship in the first place... but that's a different argument).
  14. If we've got limited ability in this season's transfer market, full back is one of the last areas we should be looking at! Some CBs, a creative midfielder and a striker first please!
