Will Buckley from Sunderland and ex Brighton star is high on the radar. Clever young winger that's not quite made it at Sunderland.

In my opinion just the sort of player we should go for. 25 demonstrated great skill at this level for Brighton but now needs a second chance to get going again.

We've had scouts watching Sunderland for a couple of weeks, I had assumed to watch Wickham but could have been checking out Buckley too. Never quite made it at Sunderland but was good for Brighton. I think would be worth a shot

We're clearly after another winger and have heard of this link before. He hasn't performed at Sunderland and they may well want to sell him on or loan him out. We are reportedly giving a medical to Sougou on Monday, so it may be the interest in Buckley is dropped if this report turns out to be true.

Interesting to note Wickham isn't even making the bench tonight for Sunderland when you can use as many players as you like. I'm not aware of him being injured.

We can hope :)

By my reckoning and based on CCs comment of 2 players per position I think we are short two wingers/attacking midfielders and are full in the other positions for now. I bet we get an unknown attacking midfielder from abroad and a known name for the winger. Sturgeon a Portuguese u21 mentioned but not sure of the named player. I doubt Ben Marshall.

Striker might wait till Christmas.

Who are our 2 LB/LWB's?

2.) 22 Jul 2015 23:03:30
Dielna and Helan would be the first names. Not sure if one of the new lads can fill in but think Dielna will get the nod

Could do with strengthening there then imo

Three of my thoughts:
1: ALF is not the answer and is not proven at championship level as 20 goals a season
2: like or hate the new structure with Roeder, he was not a great manager, but it seems to be working ok on the transfer front with players being bought quietly without drama
3: new board is shrewd with loans. No transfer fee, vastly reduced agent fees and probably wages with good quality. FFP savvy


1.) 22 Jul 2015 10:10:15
Agree with you Ian80 apart from your Roeder point.
Since Paul Senior came on board he has been the Main Man as far as recruitment is concerned, so it would be stretching things to the limit to give Roeder any credit in that area. Jonathan Hill's opinion is respected far more than Roeder's.
You will have noticed very little noise from Mr Roeder in recent weeks?

Can I ask yo a question hOWLer do you secretly work at hillsborough because you seem to have a lot of insight and talk a lot of sense? or have you bugged the offices

3.) 22 Jul 2015 13:07:19
Truth is hOWLer , we don't really know who is doing what behind the scenes!
I too, wasn't over the moon when GR was appointed , but he may have been influential in some of the recent acquisitions - we will never know.
Suggest , for now , we get right behind all the Chairman's men , and maintain a positive and united ( hate that word ) stance. After all, we have had more excitement this summer than for the past 10 years or so , combined!
I just hope that the coach can gel them together in time . We have not been creating enough chances in pre-season matches , so there is still a long way to go. While we do desperately need our 20 plus goal machine , we also need to feed him well . That's not happened yet.
Ben Marshall would have that sorted quick , but I don't think that's happening either.

4.) 22 Jul 2015 16:48:26
Keep your voice down Cams Grandad - you never know who's listening! (lol)
All I will say ( for yours and Sleafords ears only mind you ) is Mr Roeder's skills and "influence" are in big demand elsewhere - or I bet that's what he will be hoping anyway!

So I think we are fine for stokers and just need to adapt quicker to a new tactic in a game unlike against hull where we didn't turn their defence. Joao could have but didn't get long enough or the right type of ball through.

IMO we need a young CB and keep Sasso
Sign Pudil and the kid from villa
We need two wingers/ wide midfield for options - mcgeady didn't work.
We also need a back up to bannans creativity and passing as I think it's clear when he's not there we miss him. I don't think Lopez is the answer but I would sign him as I don't feel we saw the best of him yet.

I think that it's down to the club seeing the players true mentality and pulling out. I wasn't impressed with his name being linked to us as I don't think he's any better than what we already have, but carlos has put such a price tag on the right mentality it seems to make sense.

Numbers don't generally mean anything anymore except to a players ego. 4+5=9. You didn't get what you wanted so stated you had to be number 45 in your personal terms.

I liked the tradition. Bring it back!

Swezfc81 I disagree that we need 4 mate and I'm not as convinced over how strong those teams will be. I agree Middlesbrough have vastly improved and the others are fairly strong too but Blackburn can't buy and are selling. Hull are selling. They've not bought anything better.

I think we need two wingers and if we can a good striker but if not top quality then I think we should trust the new style of play and give our guys another go till Christmas. If Wickham became available if snap him up but gambling big on unknowns is risky.

I can agree with the sentiment but practicality wise it will never happen. The loss of players to other leagues paying more will be huge and cause a big loss of revenue to the clubs and SKY. Sky's money with by sport this year just turned it up a further notch I think.

A salary cap may however boost the English team as there may be a greater reliance on home grown talent that's brought through the ranks and paid less.

Things work in cycles and it will turn in the future as other leagues try to compete. Might be a better England team then?.

Pre season is completely different this year to many others given the changes seen. Results truly mean nothing as the players need to gel and take on CCs tactics.

We have a chance to really make something of this season so let's all get behind the team and back them vocally no matter what.

CC needs a few months at least to impress his style of ply on the team and there will no doubt be games where we are too hung ho and get smashed (let's hope not many) but it will happen early on. What we have to for once do is recognise the fresh start we have as a club and back them. Not just immediatley call for change and dent their confidence as a new team. Let alone the fact half are foreign and may need a year to understand the championship.

This is another reason I vote for not paying big bucks on a striker YET. Xmas maybe. Service and style of play was our restriction last year plus a lack of confidence from our strikers. I believe with the new approach chances will come and thus confidence if we back them. Bus is untested and maybe 20 goals. May had no service. Lavery injured. I think all 3 can improve and so we should not gamble big money on 1 person YET.
I missed Atde off as jury's out for me. He's like crouch but less goals. Not sure how we get the best from him. He holds the ball up but is that enough.
