Is there any truth in the Adama Traore links? Allegedly, it's us, Fulham and SK Sturm Graz.

YoungBlue2001

1.) 17 May 2024 15:51:26
I believe so, but it’s not the Adama Traore that played for Wolves, he plays for Ferencvaros.


2.) 17 May 2024 16:45:22
Have you seen his injury history? Yip, just our type of player. Honestly, if this is true (emphasis on If), then I give up.


3.) 17 May 2024 16:54:12
28 been out most of the season with injury so sounds like he will be our guy.


4.) 17 May 2024 17:00:02
Good, because he would just be another wage stealer looking for a contract to end his career. We need young, hungry to impress players that we can make a profit on.


5.) 17 May 2024 17:16:43
This guys goal contributions to games numbers are great however only being available for 25 percent of the season due to injury is not the road we can really be going down over and over again surely.


6.) 17 May 2024 18:11:26
No concrete link but already giving up? ?.


7.) 17 May 2024 18:32:10
I certainly hope not. He’s under contract about to turn 29 and been injured half the season. Thankfully I think koepen and clement are smarter than that.


8.) 17 May 2024 18:45:59
25% still beats some of ours coully.


9.) 17 May 2024 19:08:56
That's why I put the emphasis on 'IF', Einstein! Too easy! ?.


10.) 17 May 2024 19:26:54
He is another who was on beales shortlist. Lazy journalism i think.


 

 

14 May 2024 13:59:45
Anything in the Dave King majority rumours? Or is that just made up?

YoungBlue2001

1.) 14 May 2024 16:09:31
Nonsense.


2.) 14 May 2024 14:58:19
Debunked by H&H thankfully.


 

 

10 May 2024 13:25:01
Anyone picking anything up on Ange Ahoussou? Looks a similar profile to the lad from Panama, may face some competition though.

YoungBlue2001

1.) 10 May 2024 13:51:18
We seem to be targeting a different market. imo, a sensible decision. better value, and players that will mb be easier to pay.


2.) 10 May 2024 14:35:11
Big Ange to Rangers who would of thought lol.


3.) 10 May 2024 15:10:55
He's a lcb as well.


4.) 11 May 2024 07:51:41
Third tier french they must see something in him that they think will develop and possibly nominal fee.

Cheap gamble, young a no brainer.


 

 

08 Dec 2023 07:49:46
Noticed that McKenna and Worrall are likely to be away in January. Are we in for either of them? Wouldn't be a bad shout considering how desperate we are to strengthen in that position.

YoungBlue2001

1.) 08 Dec 2023 08:35:19
Think mckenna has turned into a good quality CB. Would also be homegrown that knows the league and what we are all about. Could do a lot worse.


2.) 08 Dec 2023 10:12:11
Worrall def NO - imo McKenna would fit the bill but meeting equivalent wages will be an issue if Fenerbache and foreign teams come calling.


3.) 08 Dec 2023 10:37:20
Worrall has improved massively from his last time blue, anyway we can't afford him.


4.) 08 Dec 2023 11:58:30
Why are we desperate to sign a defender exactly? We have the best defence record in league currently!


5.) 08 Dec 2023 12:07:14
We need to upgrade our Defence, should have done it 3 years ago. Our defensive record is as it is thanks largely to Butland. We need pace and fresh legs.


6.) 08 Dec 2023 12:23:47
I’d take big McKenna. Strong left footed defender, would get ahead of Davies for me.


7.) 08 Dec 2023 12:24:14
GDog10, you can put that down to the great goalkeeper behind them.


8.) 08 Dec 2023 12:49:54
If McKenna signs for Fenerbahce in January we`ll get him in the summer if we really want him . Very few British players last very long in Turkey .


9.) 08 Dec 2023 13:08:36
WSL - Turkey pay higher wages than us - therefore his agent will look for comparable cash elsewhere and that's where we drop out the equation - hence why Scottish clubs need to buy when players are here in our leagues before letting their heads be turned by big cash South or elsewhere abroad.


10.) 08 Dec 2023 14:25:21
Wsl if fenerbache sign him in jan or a 3 or 4 year deal there's no way we would stump up cash 6 month later to buy him out contract. he's on 30k a week at forest. Fenerbache reported willing to pay him 50k a week.


11.) 08 Dec 2023 19:16:40
I would gladly sign both McKenna and Worrall. They are both better than what we currently have. Right now our best centre half pairing is Goldson and Balogun, Davies just doesn't look like he will ever be of the quality needed and remains a waste of £4m and John Souttar just cannot stay fit for long enough to be consider as an option.


12.) 08 Dec 2023 20:25:51
Yes Turkey pay higher wages than us, but only for the first few weeks, how many players have had trouble getting paid.


13.) 08 Dec 2023 23:48:04
Makenna n boy from miriwoski Aberdeen, off to celtic.


14.) 09 Dec 2023 12:53:39
Improved massively ? but can't get a game for Forrest ?

Sick of people think just because a player has done well in championship means they are going to do well in Scotland it's simply not always the case.

Worryall was here before and was not good enough

McKenna is a thug and clumsy no better than souttar

He also has hamstring problems that are getting more frequent add to heavy pitches in Scotland recipe for disaster.


15.) 09 Dec 2023 12:55:13
There was a reason a few of us called him

Worryall

Instead of

Worral

Decent on deck poor in the air couldn't handle Scottish football.


16.) 09 Dec 2023 16:59:40
We had defensive upgrades that cost less than a 300.000. and were sold for 30 million, which has been squandered away, and as you can see all that investment back into the team, we are now the kings of SPFL and highly feared in europe (Sarcasm)
Patterson and Bassey were easily the best young CB and RB in the league by a mile.
The board / club aren't interested in keeping our best assets, they would rather give that benefit to other clubs, line there own pockets, then let the newest manager squander the change on garbage replacements that aren't even 20% of the players we got rid off.
Doesn't take a genius to see it costs us far more in the long run to find a player even remotely of the quality we continually get in.

The europa final XI was assembled for a measely sum of 11.5 mill pound.
With Kent, Goldson and Barsic taking up majority of that money.

Chris Jack reporting final interviews next week and Lampard has not been chosen.

All Smoke and mirrors. It’s Muscat ??????.


2.) 06 Oct 2023 19:34:43
Thank f! Any idea who it's between.


3.) 06 Oct 2023 19:36:47

4.) 06 Oct 2023 19:51:56
I just hope that’s true.


5.) 06 Oct 2023 19:53:59
It can't be. he's 4/6 ??.


6.) 06 Oct 2023 19:57:48
Muscat, clement and Jansen.


7.) 06 Oct 2023 20:19:04
If down to those 3 that’s not too bad ?????? they’ll need to be decent to get this team firing again - last night was as bad as it gets ??????.


8.) 07 Oct 2023 07:14:29
Is it not knutsen instead of janssen?

I think that presser shows that PC gets it! As angry as I've seen him and is clearly fed up with the mentality of some players, we saw tonight in the second half that they can play, why haven't they shown that over the last 5 or 6 games.

YoungBlue2001

1.) 15 May 2024 01:46:55
Combination of the pressure being off and the much needed energy of younger players with mobility.


2.) 15 May 2024 06:56:46
Many players thrive on pressure - most of our players shrink and hide under pressure - mentality change is a big thing but let's face it those who shrink and hide need to be gone - hopefully that will be the case for next season.


3.) 15 May 2024 09:30:03
was there no pressure last night?

losing two goals to Dundee like that and potentially giving Celtic the title last night.

PC must of had a good half time team talk plus the use of the young players (not to mention Cantwell not getting battered every time he touched the ball in the second half. )

Did the conditions play a factor, did Dundee run out of gas in the second half? who knows but hopefully Killie can do a miracle tonight and put the pressure on that mob. See what happens.


4.) 15 May 2024 09:47:23
All agreed on that. What the game proved to me is that Clement is still in charge. After surgery in the summer, we will be a new team. Confidence and self-belief is what we lack more than anything. As Postecoglu is showing at Spurs, there are disappointments along the way but we have a promising manager. Give him time.


5.) 15 May 2024 10:52:21
ALLY - The real pressure was when we were in front in league and lost to Mwell -Ross Cty and drawing with Dundee - not talking about winning a game to delay them the title - massively different degrees of pressure IMHO and pray tell me where we bottled it - weeks ago was the answer when REAL pressure was on and we s*** the bed.


 

 

05 May 2024 15:57:46
We can't afford to play a midfield 2 next week. We need to overload that midfield and control the tempo of the game. I would prefer to see a flat 3 with diomande, Raskin and sterling in the middle. Energy, quality and can play direct. But we all know it will be Lundstram and Diomande with Cantwell as a 10. It's tough times.

YoungBlue2001

1.) 05 May 2024 16:14:53
Cantwell and Raskin should be nowhere near the team next week.


2.) 05 May 2024 16:21:10
Lawrence should be in before Cantwell imo- more of direct goal threat who is not afraid to have a dig - and gut feeling is next week we need to score 1st.


3.) 05 May 2024 16:29:01
Don’t think he will Blue, he was given the nod ahead of Cantwell and was poor the last game at Ibrox against them, the pace he struggled with, he might be a better option in the second half.


4.) 05 May 2024 16:46:53
TL did score a great goal today but he has done nothing to suggest he starts in the majority of games he has played this season.


5.) 05 May 2024 16:46:54
Although his performances are generally good ( i thought he was motm today) Lundstrum generally abandons the midfield and for large chunks of the game plays like a CB. He’s done that with Gio, MB and now PC. If they can’t change the way he plays then maybe we have to change the system to suit, and maybe play him as a sweeper and get another midfielder into the team.

We should be dominating the midfield in n most games but we rarely do and I think that’s mostly down to only having 1 man in there bs the opposition 3.


6.) 05 May 2024 19:05:48
Totally agree 72 bear. The two of them should be nowhere our team. Both flatter to deceive.


 

 

18 Apr 2024 08:16:04
I'm just curious, why is Raskin not getting a game. Lundstram is not the type of player you want being your deep lying playmaker, at least with Raskin he turns and wants to play forward and quickly and always struck up a good partnership with Cantwell. I know people want big changes for the rest of the games but I doubt it's going to happen. Personally, I would want to see Sterling go at RB and if Tav has to play I would push him further forward in a winger position. At least that way we have someone who would hog the touchline and spread the pitch instead of staying narrow.

YoungBlue2001

1.) 18 apr 2024 10:57:28
coz he's as poor as the rest . poorer maybe.


 

 

09 Apr 2024 08:06:52
Would love to get people's opinion on this. I know that we have an option to buy Sima but in case that doesn't happen. I think Jonathan Rowe at Norwich would be the perfect type of player we would want. 20 years old, can play on both wings and as a 10 and currently has 14 goals in the championship. Could probably get him for the same amount as Sima, or maybe a little more. What's people's thoughts?

YoungBlue2001

1.) 09 apr 2024 08:14:41
not vertain we do have an option to buy sima mate.


2.) 09 Apr 2024 09:16:41
Why would we sign a player who we don't know how he'll perform in our league over someone who's absolutely dominating it? The reality is Rowe probably now as a young English player doing well in the championship has a significantly higher value than Sima. Alex Scott for example.


3.) 09 Apr 2024 09:16:44
Hopefully we can do a deal for Sima in the summer.


4.) 09 Apr 2024 09:37:01
Is big Davie Weir not the D. O. F at Brighton? Hopefully do us a deal.


5.) 09 apr 2024 10:18:31
absolutely dominating it,


6.) 09 Apr 2024 10:56:15
Would like Sima and Cortes signed along with one other and Matondo.


7.) 09 Apr 2024 13:12:22
Matondo flatters to deceive and unless he can show his ability in the remaining matches I'd be looking to move him on.


8.) 09 Apr 2024 13:22:03
Clement and coaching staff are improving Matondo can't see him being sold ows, he's a very handy player and shown he will improve, best finish I've seen in an old firm game for many a year.


9.) 09 Apr 2024 15:45:27
I’ve slated matondo over and over for not being good enough but if a player is being improved then I’m all for it. He is clearly capable just getting consistency when he starts games is required.

Sima and Cortes would be two great signings and I would like sima right and Cortes left, both capable of swapping sides, better finisher for the 9 and I’ll be happy.


 

 

14 Mar 2024 19:48:05
I think the team gave everything tonight, some of them look done in and we were undone by a team who showed their quality when it matters. Bottom line out squad depth needs to be better, if we had a fully fit team I think the result is different. But this does mean we can focus on the domestic trophies and reclaim our title ??.

I think with the possibility of a midfield overhaul he would be a fantastic option to have and could only get better for us. Wouldn't cost anything and would improve the depth of our squad massively.

Gofor, I agree but we also need depth in the squad, especially in the attacking areas for next season. If he's on a free got nothing to lose really.

Looks a great player who's very versatile. Loves to play forward and always wants the ball. I hope we sign him, he's an upgrade on hagi.

I suppose in regard to O'Hare only issue we have is Celtic want him as well, and if we're not in CL it might be the determining factor. Could be wrong.

Walter, out of the 3 I would go for Knutsen. I think potter is a good coach but I don't think his style suits our league, might do well in Europe, but I remember watching brighton when he was manager and he likes the 3 at the back but always played in a low block and his way of attacking was a direct ball to his forward.

Fair point John and Mark I just think it would make sense to get a DOF in first so that whatever manager takes over from Beale, they are both on the same wavelength in regards to how the team plays and the profile of players we need, rather than just hiring someone with no clear direction of where we want to go.
