  1. Hourihane set up many a Winnal goal at Barnsley. Terry might end up at Derby if Lampard goes in there. Grealish has ability no doubt. Could even see a Premiership move for him.
  2. Sam Byram and Jordan Hugill could be available at West Ham under the new regime there. Maybe they fit what Jos might be looking for. Byram being a right back/winger and Hugill a target man. Obviously, players would have to move on especially amongst the forwards. Thoughts on them?

    3-4-3 and next season

    Seamless variations are good too. Think they add strength to how a team uses the full 90 minutes. European sides have been seen to be flexible in this way.

    That's a possible. But if some potent player becomes available and other players have moved on then there may be an addition. Possible room for him too though as he can play more than one position.

    3-4-3 and next season

    Yes we can only bring in extra options if players can be moved on. I agree. No easy task. Hopper can play a number 10 type role. Just think if better options are out there to fit the good working dynamic of a front 3 then why not try. Fletcher could compete for the Dave role suppose. More physicality would be better though. More pace as an option would be good.

    That is the challenge. Agreed.
  7. We look good at 3-4-3. Think the big man, nippy type, number 10 combo works best. The front three are cemented for me. If it works why fix it? So basically we need, ideally, this three player type to come in. Those strikers who are often injured and who don't fit this front three combo of big man, nippy type, number 10 need moving on if possible. It really does fit a front three for us. So ideally another two or three strikers need to come through the door. Jos will know what other areas will need strengthening. His performance as manager at the latter end of this season and even in troubled times has me feeling confident for next season. I agree that Adam Reach has to have the left wing back birth. A quality right wing back would certainly add to the team. Would like to see the departures of Glenn and Ross allow for extra strengthening at centre half and a wide position. He may move for another defensive midfielder too. We do lack attacking or creative midfield depth. This was apparent when Bannan was injured. Of course Clare is an attacking type and we must wait to see if he leaves or not. A few areas of the team might need some back up as some squad members are not up to a promotion push. Could see eight or nine players coming in. If this is got right I think we can push on further great progress under Joss....

    This guy? Worth a trial? Harkes

    Think he is same age John was when he first signed for us. About 23.
  9. Ian Harkes? https://www.ussoccer.com/stories/2018/01/22/23/14/20180122-feat-mnt-ian-harkes-hoping-to-continue-walk-in-john-harkes-us-mens-national-team ....Apparently has interested Derby and Fulham in the past. We will be needing midfield reinforcements. If his commitment is anywhere near John's he might be an asset. Maybe worth a trial at least.
  10. The way prices are going, just get a sell on clause!!! Get something right on this. So what if it reduces the fee slightly? Look at the money the roudy lot have made on sell on fees....

    Nuhiu: Hero or Villain

    Yes. May be troublesome. Would have to take a cut in wages and we would have to take a hit on any fee.

    Nuhiu: Hero or Villain

    He fits a good dynamic. Big man, quick man, and Fessi the no.10. That's the way forward. Time to get the injury prone, and no good out of the club and replace them with men who fit the above dynamic as it seems to work. So out GH, SF, JR and in for two per position a big fella, a quick fella, and another no.10 type to compete in the '3'....

    The fans on jos's back already

    Many, many injuries. Caused by the previous. This needs addressing to the root. I see a more of a tactician in this guy. Already playing 3-5-2 which as made us quite solid with the little we have. Playing the Carlos 4-4-2 with this weakened squad would have brought more defeats. Apparently, Carlos is playing 3-5-2 at Swansea. Never chose to here though the dynamics were crying out for it or have shots on goal. Yes with their offensive players and his defensive ideals Swansea will more than likely stay up. But he will slowly but surely dismantle them to the point of hopeless. Yes Jos needs to be judged when he has a better hand. He needs to improve on things though no doubt. Like with the commitment side of things. Time will tell.
  14. Three at the back is the way forward. Might take time. Might need full backs in this window. Hopefully his German connections could reveal a few. Pace and strength in this team please. A 'German' manager usually knows physicality is important. Hope so!
