Ban on Heading
at 09:29 16 Jan 2020

Looks like the Scottish FA are not far away from implementing major restrictions on heading the ball at youth level. Thoughts?

Think they'll be the first of more than a few. Might even go Global if the evidence of long term damage continues to stack up. Would fundamentally change the game if it does.

Summer Rebuild
at 17:54 9 Jan 2020

With more than a dozen players falling out of contract in June, players that are likely to still be on big wages for the most part, it could be a busy close season. Just looking at some of the names there (Baston, Carroll, VdH) you'd have to think that at least £200,000 per week will be coming off the payroll. A lot more if Ayew goes too.

With Leon's recent comments about the club's new recruitment structure primarily targeting the next window (hence us mostly using Cooper's links to add some depth for now), it all seems to suggest that we're just biding our time now ready for a big revamp come the summer.

The last occasion we had so many gaps in our squad was the summer of 2002. Let's hope this time around we're a lot better prepared.

Got the look of a young Ashley Williams about him. Chunk of a boy but comfy on the ball and not afraid of a battle. Looks like we've got another good one there.

Bargain buys
at 19:32 2 Nov 2019

Little Nath has to be up there on the list of best "pound for pound" signings we've made in the last 25/30 years, and for the most part of that we did some good business (if we went a bit mental in the last year or two in the Prem).

Free - Trundle, Robinson, Britton, Tate, Monk, Martinez, Fabianksi
Less than £100k - Scotland, Bodde, Dobbie, Rangel, McBurnie, James
Less than £1m - Ash, Dyer, Sinclair (initially)
Less than £3m - Michu, Flores, Routledge, Cork

Any more?

More evidence of what we're up against
at 22:51 24 May 2019

And why the idiocy of demanding more and more spending must be resisted. There's no way to be sure of buying our way out of the division. We have to be smarter than others, not more profligate.

And the passage;

"Tony Pulis tried to bring other players to the club in a bid to push for promotion, while adhering to owner Steve Gibson's request to cut costs that had spiralled under the previous manager, Garry Monk"

Should ring awfully close to home.

And they're still spending in this one. Going to bump up against FFP if they don't go straight back up. Another indicator of the kind of financial craziness we're up against though.

That is our best midfield three and they should play together whenever possible. Any other permutation makes us weaker. Time for GP to settle on that at least.

It's not the spectacular things. There were no pinpoint crosses, showy crossfield balls or defence splitting passes. We know he can do all that. We've seen it before.

Tonight it was all about that extra bit of strength in the challenge, or the ability to ride tackles out that either helped us win or keep possession where in other games this season we've been too weak to do so. Of course, him doing all that freed Celina up to have perhaps his most all out attacking performance since he got here. They complemented each other very well indeed.

We have to keep Leroy fit and find someone else to do that job when he's not. Do that plus get some help for Oli and there's f*ck all in this division we need to be worried about.
