Holgate, who chose West Brom

Watching him tonight, did OK, but not noticeably better than Liam Palmer

Derby confirm signing of that little tw@t Ashley Cole. 

Loved him as a player growing up.

 

At one time he was the best left back in the whole world. Never got the foreign plaudits though cos he as English.

Sure, but not quite as firm in the challenge as Scholes.

Scholes wasn't that good. He's been wildly overrated since he retired.

 

He's behind Gerrard and Lampard for best English midfielder of that generation. 

 

In fact David Beckham was a better CM than Scholes was too.

Gerrard, Lampard, Ferdinand, Scholes probably all have a case aswell.

Terry too.

 

1998-2003 Michael Owen was as well until injuries curtailed him.

Considering Owen won the Ballon D Or then yeah he has to be considered World class aswell.

Wow! What an absolute rubbish statement. Go read what Xavi said about Scholes.

Stodgy game but I agree he did OK. Thought Jason Lowe looked a useful player who'd do well with better players around him, if Bolton go down he'd be a cheap way to bolster the midfield.

Id put him above lampard and gerrard personally, beckham was different and not easy to compare.

Have we sold or signed anyone yet or are we still sat on our hands?

I don’t think the only two options are selling/buying or doing nothing. Much like was mentioned to you yesterday when you were spamming the thread with the same thing.

I’d have thought we’d at least have moved a few youngsters out. We have had a pretty successful U23 group in recent years, and, if Jos were to be believed, many of the group were ready for championship football He was probably wrong about that, but you’d have thought they would have been of interest to lower league clubs For example, do we really need 5 professional keepers kicking around the place?

All fantastic players, can make a case for all of them so people will always disagree.

how many pages this transfer window before we actually do any business in or out.

 

For me even if we do nothing for the first team regulars in or out. There are playing that need regular football to improve.

 

Neilson, Ogrady, Wildsmith, Kirkby - 4 young players who all need game time at a higher level than development team. I would loan all out the league 1 or 2 to get some games under their belt. Wildsmith has gone backwards from last season and needs to be playing regularly, have a recall option if either Dawson or Westwood get injured. If we let him stay understudy it is harming his development.
