    The leadership will come from the new keeper we sign with the freed up wages from not replacing Rod!

    And when I woke up my pillow was gone.

    It does still confused me if MR sees something different in training with goalies.

    Making decent signings throughout but nothing solid in goal.

    I think Robins might try to sign another midfield player maybe on loan, although we seem to have plenty of bodies in that department we are not the tallest and thought it showed a bit Saturday

    I'd say Burge is okay for our current level. Not brilliant, not pants. I imagine he'll only be replaced if and when we step up to the Championship, barring a transfer or serious injury.

    Surely you don't expect another CM to come in. We're already completely overloaded in that department?

    agreed the fees in general are crazy sometimes, but paying it for a quality keeper is no more crazy than paying the same for a striker. The two positions you need to have right to win things...

    And according to some on here , the keeper is the only reason a team loses games, so maybe put that position up to the most important ;)

    You need to be much closer otherwise it's all a bit pointless.

    I think there is a chance Burge will go and we'll bring another keeper in. Although I have seen nothing to suggest Robins would want to strengthen that position. Maybe it just makes sense to us.

    Looks like we are still in for a player to fill the 10 shirt (no jokes about fat players please Otis), be it Chaplin or someone else. If that is the case we are going to have too many forwards to keep happy which would need solving. I think the same could happen with the midfield already to be honest.

    Looking pretty good at the moment so let's just hope we don't sell anyone!

    Yes if the right one becomes available in fact I think Robins would if able sign anyone who he thinks would improve his team and increase our chances of promotion

    We're in need of another CB and GK first before we start filling already packed positions with unnecessary players. Liam Kelly is 6"1 so he's fine for now.

    Quite ruff I'd imagine.

    Edit: the real answer is that even without a nose, as long as the dog still has receptor neurons it should be able to detect scents.

    According to Google he's 6"1. Admittedly I thought he was more towards the 6ft mark rather than over.

    CT saying no Madden, Chaplin and CB on loan possible by the end of the month.

    Think it'll be a quiet day.

    Chill people. Some on here haven't put Bayliss in their starting eleven. Accrington have sold Kayden Jackson to Posh. Big loss.

    It's such an unnecessarily snide way of doing business from the Prem clubs in question, they could undoubtedly have afforded to buy him earlier in the window but leave in until deadline day to try and force our hand meaning we don't even have a chance to spend the money.

    We should tell them to do one, though it does look like we've been planning to lose him all summer with the signings we've made.

    Fucks sake. I bet it's about £1m as well, and all we'll get is Bakafuckinyoko.

    I am in a minority but I have always thought Bayliss was worth much more value to the club as a sale than as a player

    I think he'll be more important later on down the line than Maddison. Might not have the stats to back it up against him but he's so effective to have in your team. We wouldn't have been promoted hadn't Robin's given him a chance last year.
