Palace looking really poor, hoping de boer puts in a similar performance to his stint at inter. Also think that Burnley were incredibly lucky against an undercooked Chelsea with some luck from the officials

I've just had a quick look at his recent clubs to pick out a few players that could do a job for us.
First being from Bayern: Helgur Badstuber, CB, 27, 14 caps for Germany. Admittedly he has had a really bad injury record over the last couple of seasons, but according to his profile on transfermarkt, he seems to be over them now. An experienced defender and standing at 1m 90 he could bring some solidity to our back 4. Also, he is listed with a market value of around £2.5m, so a relatively low risk investment.
Another from Bayern we should have gone for but has already arranged a transfer is Julian Green. Came through the youth system at Bayern and did well in patches, also a USA international which would have kept the majority shareholders happy. Unfortunately went to Frankfurt for £250k.
Next I looked at Real where I identified Nacho a 26 year old CB who can also play LB or RB. Admittedly he had played some games for Real this season so it may be hard to tempt him to our situation, but once again could bring experience and solidity to our defence. His market value is around £5m.
Another Real player that could possibly be available is Lucas Silva, a 23 year old Brazilian DM. His chances have been limited at Real, this season playing no part, but was brought over with some fanfare. He had a loan to Marseille scuppered in the summer due to an abnormal heart scan, so obviously dependant on that he might be a loan option.
Finally looking at PSG, I identified Hervin Ongenda, a 21 year old winger. His chances have been once again limited at his club this season but performed decently away on loan last season. He's played for the French u21s at international level and is a right footed left winger who could be useful especially with the form of Routs this season.
These were just a few players I found looking this morning who I thought would improve our current squad, but who knows how they fit into the new transfer policy.

I thought i'd start a thread focusing on some of our youngsters coming through. I just read an article on the main site from Liam Cullen, our U18s captain where its said he has scored 10 goals already this season. Definitely looks like one to watch.
Another positive is how were performing in our u23 league, top of the table and getting good results. One thats stood out for me in the highlights and reports has been Tyler Reid. Only signed from united in the summer, but looks to have settled well and made that rb position his own. Seems to have picked up a few assists too, still only 19 too.

Currently 2-1 vs Blackburn Rovers with George Byers and Daniel James scoring for us. Would love to see Daniel James in and around the first team, especially with Nath out for 2 months.
Also, McBurnie brought off at half time, perhaps with first team commitments in mind?

Seems a bit of a strange situation, he was sent back by Kilmarnock from his season long loan and the club have sneaked in the bottom of the Baston article, that he's been released. Thought the club thought quite highly of him, seems like something might have happened outside of football

Hopefully won't spark a late chase for our wilf!

Just watching the re-run of Monday Night Football, and Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher assessed his performances this season. The said rightly that he's been the player with 'that' quality for Sunderland this year, and from his performances you have to agree. I know a lot of people are suggesting selling him to Sunderland, but with their hopes of staying in the prem sinking fast, I think he can come in and have a great impact with us next season. He's proven now that he can play at this level, and whether its Gary Monk or someone else in charge this summer, i think they can view his return as a boost for the team. He can play the 'Leon' role and the JJS role and has even scored a few good goals, why waste transfer funds on potentially getting someone else in who hasn't got the prem experience when we have someone already?
