  1. Reminds me a little bit of Nathan Redmond, very good at beating a player one on one but stuggled a bit more delivering the end product, whether a goal or an assist (obviously Redmond was a lot younger and still developing as a player). Hopefully if he gets more of a look in and can regain some of the confidence he had at Wigan then he could be a decent player for us. As mentioned before, Farke seems to think he could play as a wing back, which could be very interesting.
  2. Never really given a chance for us, but regardless he never was/will be a prolific scorer at championship level. Seemingly Scottish football is his actual level, so good luck to him.
  3. It is an interesting summer, because reports today suggest that as many as 13 Chinese Super League clubs are in crisis as they have failed to pay their players properly. These huge fees and wages are simply not sustainable and, as many here have said, the bubble will eventually burst, and I think the consequences will be quite severe.
  4. He is a very good player, but at a club that finished in 15th place last season. Considering he was deemed to be surplus to requirements at Tottenham, I really do not think he is worth £40/50 million at all, considering Bayern could end up buying James Rodriguez at the end of his loan for less than that.
  5. Despite his age, you cannot dispute his record at this level, and the effort he puts in every game is well known to everyone. Unless someone comes in with a silly offer, ie over £5 million (which i highly doubt would happen anyway), then the club should be looking to keep him imo.

Ok.... oh dearoh dearie dear meyou cannot be basing anything on that worthless nonsensejust how far has football sunk that it has attracted this twaddle ?[/quote] So statistics are suddenly twaddle in your eyes? Whilst statistics obviously never tell the whole story, my use of them here was to dispute the claim that Tettey ''cannot pass a ball ten yards'', which is a ridiculous claim. If you do not think that statistics play a vital part of football analysis then you are very much mistaken, or perhaps you simply do not understand ''worthless nonsense''.
  8. I would agree with that lineup. As the season goes on I can see Reed replacing Tettey in the starting 11. When Pritchard and Klose return we really would have a strong starting 11.
  9. I think his performances last season may have put off any potential Premier League suitors, as well as concerns about his fitness. However I still think he can be an important player for us this season, hopefully him and Franke can build up a solid partnership.

  11. Selling him would leave us potentially needing to buy two strikers (one being a loan as 3rd backup after Morris going to Shrewsbury). Money not necessarily being an issue, my biggest worry is that its getting very close to the season to sell another key member of the first team, and replacing CJ would of course take time, as transfers always do, and we need the team to have built up as much chemistry as possible by the time we play Fulham. Replacing CJ with someone who would inevitably end up playing a considerable part thi season, but who hasn''t had a pre season to gel with the team, certainly wouldn''t be ideal.
  12. Mirror reporting a £3 million bid incoming from Fulham. Not the most reliable source, but if there were any truth to it would surely be rejected??
  13. Recognise him from the u20 world cup final, he gave away a dubiously given penalty which was subsequently saved. Must be highly regarded at Chelsea as he has just signed a new long term contract, but surely if we were to sign him would only be as a backup centre back?
  14. Fulham - loss Sunderland - win Queens Park Rangers - win Aston Villa - loss Millwall - draw Birmingham - draw Burton - win Sheffield United - draw Bristol City - win Middlesbrough - loss Hoping for 15 points
