Ian Wright was talking about the knack of scoring goals. He said that Bergkamp would say it is all about going cold in the box...is Denis an undertaker now then?   :022:

A top man in my book.  I remember him being presented to the crowd when he signed.  Sitting at the front of the Riverside he looked huge as he wandered by.  How we could do with a similar signing now.

Maybe it's just me but WCs don't seem to have the glamour these days?

Remember watching unkown players from the African countries in particular & the commentators would speculate if they'd be good enough to play in England.  These days, those players have probably already been signed by the age of 10 to clubs in Spain, Italy or Ch*lsea.

It’s just you. I’m loving it so far

Are people not concerned that we could have no signings for the start of pre season and an inadequate squad. The same thing happened last year meaning we weren’t ready for the start of the season and we had a poor first half of the season. The team wasn’t cohesive because the squad hadn’t been together for very long.

I’m concerned that this could happen again this year which could really determine the outcome of the season. I really do feel we need to try and act more quickly so that the ‘finalised’ squad can have as much of the pre season together as they can. This inactivity for me is quite worrying

I think most of us are concerned about it but also realize that it doesn't matter if players signs today or in 11 days, they will still be able to start pre season with us.

Well based upon the transfer rumours we have put offers in on about 50 players, not including Savage and Koumas, so we should be OK

"Only one of them available for our first game of the season!"
I don't get why this is a big deal.  Sure, we need to strengthen the squad and Freddo needs replacement but if our first game saw a back line of Christie, Ream, Kalas and Sess it would hardly be a crisis. (And yes I prefer Sess to play further forward, but I see no reason to be sensationalist)

Good grief  😕
