  1. Could be an interesting situation. 

    Fc Rostov had big problems with Covid for the game with Sochi. Short version, first team has to stay at home, tried to rearrange game, Sochi wouldn't let them. Dragged kids out of school, kids went 1-0, goalie saves a pen and is MOM whilst losing 10-1.

    It depends, personally I favour a system that uses three central midfielders, generally Monk favours two. We already have four, but as you say, Hunt has very little first team experience, so do we put him back in the U23s? We are unlikely to have more than two players for every position, except for maybe goalkeepers. If we can only sign one in this department, I’d rather it be someone younger than Irvine

    I'm not sure what depends, I asked, if you are suggesting that midfield four is a reason not to sign a proven midfielder on a free?

    I'm also confused as to why you think your preferred system makes a difference but if we are playing with a three it makes signing someone like this even easier.


    Where has the two players per position think come from? I may well have missed the interview or release stating this. Would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction.


    If football is going forward with more subs having a bigger squad makes sense and getting good quality players in on frees is a must for me, esp with how much work the manager has.

  3. If I follow you, your saying we have four midfielders. One of which is a squad player at best, one has no experience in the league and using that as a reason not to sign a good player, at a decent age, with good experience of the league on a free transfer? On top of that saying we need to sign forwards....

  4. Using a quick google search we have sixteen players who have played more than thousand minutes this season. As things stand five of them will need replacing or resigning.


    There are a couple of others in the sixteen that don't look to have a future here like Westwood, Lee and Obudajo.


    I would assume Monk is going to be looking for a lot of loans and free transfers     along with resigning a few. 

    The suggestion of running a smaller squad seems a strange idea to me given how many transfers don't work and what we have to do.
