Re: January 2022 Transfer Thread

Frantzdy Pierrot's agent is looking for an English club for him. Big, powerful, quick centre forward currently playing in Ligue 2 in France for Guingamp - a club at risk of relegation. Technically sound. Haiti international. We're one of the clubs that has been mentioned as "suitable", but not sure ...

Evatt needs to stop saying "adapt and overcome" in every interview like he has been listening to a marine's memoires during the drive into work.

Re: Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Bare Bones....

I was, TBH, somewhat disappointed we didn't pick up any last/this summer. I guess we didn't quite know what the setup was but it still seemed an oversight. So was I; but I was more surprised that we didn't sign another right back, mid and striker. I put it down to investment and not having set up t...

Sounding increasingly like Del Amaechi will be starting tomorrow. Evatt reckons he has a decision to make - I'm not sure he has.
I do wonder how much of the "we have to look after him and be sure he can start" stuff in the press is for the benefit of HSV.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Thread

There will be a balance to be struck between digging us out of this hole and not overdoing it. We wanted three in initially: right back, midfielder and forward. We probably now need another mid and another forward at the minimum. I think Gordon has earned himself a lot of good will in terms of peopl...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Thread

Amaechi is still currently due to return to Germany, isn't he? I know Iles said we have asked for an extension, but I've not seen any confirmation of him staying. If he goes back that's another issue for Jan.

Re: Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Bare Bones....

i think all the youngsters are too young other than the ones on the bench already. It's an area that badly needs investment. Picking up lads at 16-20 for development is something we will have to begin doing at some stage (not in January). Non-League, the Irish leagues and Scottish lower divisions a...

Re: Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Bare Bones....

Very much doubt he's anywhere near fit enough or in the right frame of mind. Better to promote some youngsters for the few games until Jan I think. I see evatt said that 3 stone ago he'd have considered registering himself. 😁 He did fill out that 10 shirt in a way that made sarcevic look like Twigg...

Re: More Tin Pot Than Gold Cup - Jockeying For Position vs Cheltenham At Home (3pm 27/11/21)

I still find it hard to imagine that we'll sign a centre back in January and I think the injury crisis makes it even less likely. I'm guessing, obviously; but we will be stretching the budget to cover absentees and centreback is now suddenly the least of our problems. Unless people leave I can't see...

Re: More Tin Pot Than Gold Cup - Jockeying For Position vs Cheltenham At Home (3pm 27/11/21)

Amos, along with Spearing and several others over the years, fall into the the 'what-happened-to-the-lad-we-had-on-loan?' category. Spearing was head and shoulders above (do your own jokes) anyone else in training. He got put into less and less creative teams where he had to do more and more of wha...

Interestingly, Senior seems to consider himself a marauding right-back now.
Yeah, "I love to get forward"....saw some of him taking players on and was please to see it.

We're not massively short, but we're currently shipping 3 players a week to the long term injury list!
I'll be amazed if we make it to January without more. My biggest question is how we manage the Christmas to New Year "3 in 6 days" fixtures.

Re: Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Bare Bones....

The thing is, it's not like we were massively short in Edward's and Senior's positions. We just need anyone we can get now. At the time they left we were all positive to see them getting football. This has been a snowball of shite....a shitball.

He's a winger though right? Arguably the only place we've got any depth! Dapo, Amaechi, Kachunga, Delf. Luxury!
Yeah, but a number of those players could fill in at 10 for us and so he'd have been de facto midfield depth.

Either way, it's done now.

I'm sure that I've just read that Evatt is saying that Baptiste may be back for Saturday
Baps is known for being a lad who will always put himself forward to play, even when he's in real pain. Up to the club to look after him.

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

I get his point about free agents taking weeks to get up to speed but we need all the help we can get at the minute even if they can only play 30 mins or so. “The problem we have – and it is a problem – is by the time you get the lads who have not had clubs up to speed, it’s January,” Were we not i...

Re: Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Bare Bones....

So we have recalled Senior and t'other Liam, but they won't be back until a week into December. Darcy looks likely to go into the play-offs, so he wont be back until closer to Jan.
