Still hoping for more than a CB in. Still amazed on the LB situation...I mean surely someone on loan even? There is no guarantee Baines will be ready or might have a reoccurrence as has happened before with other injuries he has returned from (probably too soon).

Really wanted someone in at CM too who can pass a ball in a forward direction.

Talksport just said Mangala would be part of Mahrez deal. So we'd miss out.

Reckon the five must be Lookman, Schneiderlin, Davies, Niasse and Klaassen.

DCL maybe. Robles? I doubt it'd be Niasse or Davies.

5 players wanted to leave on loan, one of them left even though the manager told him it was a bad move, must have just been desperate to go anywhere to get away from the club.

Doesn't exactly give the impression of harmony in the dressing room!


Nah, it's fair enough that Lookman wants to play. I'd kinda be more concerned if he didn't. A player that age shouldn't be spending weeks on the bench, far better to be out on loan.

Cant get me head around it all. Strange tings a gwarn at finch farm/ GP.

Players we want to leave, dont want to leave and vice versa.

Sam seemingly managing with his hands tied behind his back and no long term job prospects and throwing snidey comments about admitting as much.

Sooner the season is done, the better.

True.

But I mean why? Without him we're finishing with ~40-45 points this season, and then we need a summer overhaul.

What's the point for 13 games?

I suppose the point would be if he plays well we have a better crack at signing him in the summer. We definitely need another CB.

Awesome. So we might pick up a few more points then we would without him and finish 8-9th instead of 10th.

It just seems like a waste of time.

OR we go on and finish 7th. Sign him and start next season with a functional CB partnership? I can't imagine we're bringing him in without some thought of trying to sign him long term.

Got to try and look for positives after this season :)

Hopefully Mangala deal goes through, still seems mad we didn't sign a LB. Even if just a loan.

Let's hope we've got a really great deal lined up for the summer.
