    Championship pre-season predictions

    They’re cutting back a lot and not really replacing players who have left. 21st does seem a bit low. A lot of clubs are in a worse position than us in the transfer market.

    Recruitment Model

    We still have a young team? COH, Bright, Walker, Sheaf, Hamer, Rose, Hyam, Shipley, Dabo and Gyo off the top of my head. That’s without mentioning our younger academy products like Bapaga and Burroughs et al.

    21/22 Summer transfer mega-thread

    How do you define finished the season? I’d say the final 10 games or so and that was our go to line up. Despite battering Millwall, we had a slight drop off from our prior 3 games as we lost to PNE and drew to Huddersfield of the back off of a 3 winning streak

    Obviously, Kelly got injured.

    With how this market have been, that wouldn’t be worth the risk, injured or not. We definitely need someone in that role with experience.

    21/22 Summer transfer mega-thread

    CM absolutely needs to be a top priority. We ask a lot of the 2 CMs in our system and you need bodies to keep Sheaf and Hamer fresh. Kelly always has a spell on the sidelines and we need an experienced player in there. Eccles is a good talent and throwing him in at the deep end could probably...

    21/22 Summer transfer mega-thread

    100-150k would be an absolute steal for us. Last year of his contract and he’s at least 4th choice at CM and CAM. We’ll let him go for free when we’ve got someone lined up I imagine. He was instrumental in our promotion season and I quite like him. But, didn’t have much output nor impact last...

    The spine

    There’s obviously a process in identifying players, we’re clearly not just winging it. He played against Man U both times in Sheffield Utd’s first premiership season and from their accounts, handled himself well. All this talk about Walton from some people, he played 2 games last season.

    The spine

    It’s a risk to you because you (and other laymen including myself) know next to nothing about the player. Whereas MR and his recruitment team have done their research.

    Match Thread Cheltenham Town (A)

    The problem with judging things on preseason, it’s not representative of a competitive match. Let’s not forget that preseason reports were favourable to Kastaneer when he arrived. Bakayoko looked good preseason, yet didn’t even look like scoring in competitive matches last season. Has Robins...

    Match Thread Cheltenham Town (A)

    You're panicking, have a little patience! GK hasn't got worse as Wilson was generally our first choice last season, and if Moore disappoints, it's back to square 1. As for the defence, we've yet to finish our recruitment yet so we don't really know what the outlook is like there. I don't think...

    The spine

    Our PPG without Kelly was below Wycombe’s so we definitely need a strong CM option there in his absence. I like Sheaf and Hamer individually but think they both need a good leader lining up next to them. I’m liking our attacking options, the one area we’ve definitely improved on. Walker and...

    Ticket prices

    Every year, our fans have moaned about ticket prices and every year our season ticket prices are some of the best value in our league. There’s also inflation to consider too - it has a small impact.

    Goes to show how much you know about rugby. If it’s not your cup of tea, fair enough. Australia, New Zealand and South Africa get to play this tour once every 12 years - it’s a special honour for both teams involved.

    Transfer Rumour Rocky Bushiri

    I didn’t get that vibe, sounds like we’re taking a look at him. Reading between the lines, if were to sign him on loan it would be a similar to Sheaf’s deal. If this player is 21, doesn’t really look like getting anywhere near getting into Norwich’s squad... they’ll be looking to offload him...
