    Stickied Transfer Rumours & Confirmed Deals Thread

    We're sending Tyrese Omotoye on loan to Swindon Town for the rest of the season, which presumably means we've sorted Soto's work permit. Would imagine that will be the last of our activity this window, unless we do get a free agent goalkeeper in after all to provide additional cover for Krul in...

    Stickied League 1 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 20/21

    He's made a few cameos for us this season (including on Saturday in the cup) and looks raw but very promising. Has pace and surprising physicality for someone his age, but needs to work on things like his positioning a fair bit. Don't know how you play, but he should do well if you can get him...

    FA Cup 2021

    Dismal performance so far. Barely able to get out of our half for the most part against a Barnsley side who clearly want it more. Only reason we're dominating possession is cos we've spent a lot of time passing the ball between the back four while being pinned back. Could easily be 4-0 to...

    FA Cup 2021

    We're putting out a stronger team than I'd have liked today, to be honest, with a full-strength defence when Aarons could probably do with a rest at some point. Good to see Hernandez and Rupp return to the starting line-up after their long injury lay-offs, and having both Hernandez and Placheta...

    Coronavirus

    Looking at it all from afar, there seems to be very much a distinct cut-off in the size of teams between the National League Premier and the North and South divisions. As this whole situation now seems to be proving, trying to manage clubs of such wildly different sizes under one banner isn't...

    Looks like we'll be recalling Sebastian Soto from his loan with Dutch side Telstar as we're confident his recent appearances for the US national team will be enough for him to finally earn a work permit. That would presumably mean that either Soto or Omotoye will go out on loan for the second...

    And Hugill with his second, although I don't think he knew much about this one, given it deflected off a defender onto his chest and in. It makes a refreshing change to have a striker like Hugill giving our crosses an outlook, as for all his strengths Pukki doesn't really offer that. Fantastic...

    1-0 up at half-time and it's proving very easy so far. Bristol City offering absolutely nothing - they've not even had a single shot yet - and generally showing us far too much respect. They're organised and they've clearly come for a point, but now that they're behind I don't really know what...

    Only change from Saturday's XI sees Krul return in goal after recovering from covid, while Rupp and Martin give us further depth on the bench as they also return from illness (reportedly flu rather than covid, as both tested negative on a few occasions). No Giannoulis in the squad at all, which...

    20/21 Matchday Thread

    Well, our new left back joined yesterday, but based on Farke's usual approach I don't expect to see him start tonight, but maybe on Saturday in the cup. Whatever the case will be, one of our local journalists has given us some interesting information about our left-back situation, namely that...

    Loan signing of left back Dimitris Giannoulis from PAOK confirmed, with him here until the end of the season with an obligation to buy for an undisclosed fee (rumours suggesting around £7.5 million) should we be promoted back to the Premier League at the end of the season.

    No Pukki for us for the next two games, but he'll be back when we take on Middlesbrough. Time for Hugill to step up and show he's worth the £2.5 million we paid in these couple of games. All being well, Krul should be back between the sticks tomorrow night, but I'd also be happy with more game...

    Another three points, but another game where we could and should have won more convincingly than we ended up doing. Still, if Luton manage to keep Bournemouth at bay for a few more minutes, that puts us seven points clear at the top (though Swansea do have a game in hand, and Brentford have...

    20/21 Matchday Thread

    Pretty dismal start to the second half for us, very sloppy and slow to react all over the park. And now we've needlessly given Cardiff a way back into a game we had full control of at half-time. Need a couple of subs to freshen things up and help us see this out now. Or Cardiff going down to ten...

    20/21 Matchday Thread

    Cardiff have definitely learnt a few things after last month's game between the two sides, as they're playing it along the ground far more and pressing us much more proactively. Besides set pieces, they've largely kept Buendia contained so far, but they've got absolutely no grip on Cantwell and...
