To be fair, I wouldn’t be too bothered if all of those currently linked, turned out to be wide of the mark. Odubajo might be interesting I suppose, but we need to be looking at much better than those mentioned 

I wonder if the Norwich and pigs fans were saying the same last pre season when they were linked with names like Buendia, Stieperman, Hernandez, Pukki, Egan, Norwood and Mcgoldrick?

And you would’ve said the exact same about every one of Sheffield United’s & Norwich’s signings for the past 2+ years, barring Norwood for United

Correct , Some on here really believe they know better than the managers , that may have held some truth in some managers we have had but as long as Bruce has a reasonable budget and gets the final say on all transfers that will do for me .

To be fair, I wouldn’t have known too much about most of the players Norwich signed. Did Utd make many signings, don’t think I’d have been disappointed had we signed, either Fleck, or Norwood. I know what you mean though, but then again, success for both of those clubs, was probably more down to the influence of the manager. Both their coaches, are tactically astute, innovative, and big on motivation

Sheff United miss out on Lee Gregory to Stoke.  I'd be seriously worried if that's the calibre of player we chased if we're ever promoted, never mind in the championship

Under our financial situation. I think you will continue to be dissatisfied.

Quite possibly yes, but looked at another way, it’s then more important that we don’t make the same mistakes that we made before.

It also indicates that United aren't prepared to pay huge wages. This will seriously hamper recruitment for the Premier League.

They only wanted him because he’s a Blade. He will want to play games.

We’ve already made it clear we want younger and more energetic players so I don’t think we will.

I suppose that is why it’s the rumours I am disturbed by, and not the clubs stated aims, which I am right behind. We have seen our recruitment vere away from what was needed quite a lot recently though

They don't need to pay huge wages. They've got Pashun in abundance and Allah on their side

Really, can't be any more dissatisfied than the big money signings we've made over the last couple of seasons, I'm sure under SB most signings will be far better value for money.

I don’t disagree, but getting much better than those we have been linked (odubajo, hector, Willis, Cattermole, powell) with whilst on a budget would seem unlikely.

Hector is a good player, and has already proven his worth to us, the rest, are they any better than what we have

The cattermole one I'm not too keen on, but the others I think will be an improvement on what we've got, with a good winger and left full back, we'll have the making of a side that should be looking at the top 6.

They are different to what we already have. The issue previously was that we had too many players who were the same and we couldn’t change anything.

Again, I have to agree with you, we certainly need different options, and duplicating was a huge mistake. I’m a great believer in using the loan market to, not only fill the gaps, but to upgrade the quality, as we did with Hector. Derby were a club who used the system well, as did Huddersfield, when they went up. We proved that we have the quality to get us to the play offs, we just need to add a little extra Wholesale changes are not needed.
