Re: Season Predictions

12th-15th for me unless we can bring in two quality attacking players. Perhaps a couple of loans from our premiership neighbours. Our squad depth is much better than last season, however I don't think that we have brought anyone in to significantly improve the starting XI who finished last season &...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

A quick note a propos of nothing other than that Josh Earl has been shunted from No.3 to No.32 in PNE’s new squad numbers. A left-back or left-sided centre-back who stands at 6’4” - a full seven inches taller than George Johnston, by BWFCi’s estimation - Earl spent last season on loan at Burton. The...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

I don't really disagree I just don't think he's at the age yet where he "needs" games, but the work-experience loan is a useful weapon in that you don't get stuck with the Foden/Sancho comparison - is it better to go and play, or train with higher quality players. You can do both! Get him to Chorle...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Thommo's an interesting comparison. Senior has promise but he needs games, so I'd be tempted to look at a National League six-month loan to someone who'd play him. If he's absolutely smashing that, then maybe elevate to D4 in January, which is when he turns 20. He's still very young: because his bir...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Senior getting good words too. He's obviously going to start down the pecking order but with Baps' age and Aimston's injury record there might be a chance there. Maybe keep him around for the first half of the season, give him minutes in the JPT and then look at a loan in Jan. Yep - I wonder if it'...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

See IE is talking up Liam Gordon. I do like this - its a good sign when players struggle, come back in and the manager is prepared to give them a chance. He's 22 and clearly has lots of attributes but the loan potentially has done him good. I think there is something there and rather he'd be part o...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Sully Kaikai got himself a club yet? Aye, he's signed for Wanderers. Wycombe Wanderers. I thought he might have landed a bigger gig but I suppose as a relegated side, they've a realistic chance of being one of the front runners this season. They also put up a decent fight against relegation - after...

Ordered it immediately. Looking forward to receiving quizzical glances whilst rocking it on the streets of London. I’m sure someone will be along shortly to question your lifestyle choices. Personally I usually wear a Wanderers top for Monday night kickabouts, so I look forward to buying this half-...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

When I look at the attacking areas of the squad and specifically at league one assists and goals - at this level I'd say you've got proven quality in Doyle, Sarcevic (though noted his attacking stats are much lower than league 2) and Delfouneso. Delf probably isn't the player he was. After that Dar...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Agreed. We are in the general lull. Most transfers happen early or late in the window. My worry (while agreeing with you) is that if we don’t get anyone till near the Aug 31 deadline, it might take another month to get them up to IE’s standards of fitness, let alone content downloading… by the end o...

Re: Pre-season frendlies

COVID and circumstance may force his hand bud I suspect ideally IE would want to pick his (current) best XI v Blackburn, with only a few late subs. Dress rehearsal conditions. Is it still five subs in the EFL this season? Think it was only a temporary measure…? Back to three subs according to the i...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Ameachi needs surgery…could well curtail his loan as it was only till Jan anyway? Possibly but IE isn’t saying so. “We are obviously one light now in that position and we may be a tad light there anyway, so we’re looking but we’re not going to rush into things. We have to make sure it’s right.” htt...

Re: Pre-season frendlies

Twitterati lauding young goalkeeper Hutchinson, but also plenty praising Comley’s performance at right-back. There’s something of a hole there if he wishes to fill it…

No Gilks, Aimson or Johnston again.. must now be close to doubtful for the first game in 10 days’ time.

Re: Pre-season frendlies

Playing Chorley tonight. Didn't even know. Leading 1-0 at the break from a Senior header. Was supposed to be an "XI", ie largely kids (new coach Sam Hird is in charge), but lack of gametime for some seniors forced a somewhat interesting XI: Hutchinson, Comley, Senior, Tutte, Gordon, Thomason, Lee, ...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Not sure where IE mentions being "elaborate". “It is no good us working flat out on our set plays and then MK Dons know every single routine and everything we’ve got throughout the pre-season. We are keeping a few cards up our sleeve and they’ll start to come out the next couple of weeks.” I get you...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Ah, cheers. Not keen on Ilesy’s past tense but then from Evatt’s other quotes it feels like we’re waiting to see how bad Amaechi’s injury is.
