    I’m pleased with the on-going clear-out and am looking forward to further signings in the coming days and weeks.

    On Haidara, he can’t be faulted for energy and commitment, but I do find he’s lacking in basic skills.

    sutty from previous
    regarding mbabu at lb,i think rafa is either trying to get players playing in there more natural position…as in mbabu is a right back so been playing him right back…or he cant trrust him to play enough games with his injuries,he did great at left back,we all seen that but square pegs round holes comes to mind and rafa doe’snt seem to be happy to do that unless its required…would love to see what mbabu can do at right back tbh.

    haidara has’nt really had a good run of games to get his sharpness and fitness back,as well as his confidence…players can be fit enough to play but sharpness and confidence takes a good few more games after lengthy injuries…he may surprise you if he gets the games….then again he just may not be good enough.

    Jazzy,
    Tiote to which United? Or Newcastle United are close to agreeing a deal?

    Shame to lose Tiote, but if he isn’t motivated or wanting to stay and fight then he isn’t worth keeping.

    Jesus had a nightmare! Gouffran was looking lost. Otherwise the rest played well, especially Hayden and Ritchie.
    Dummett is an excellent defender and covered for Jesus getting tuned by their right winger. Put in a few crunching tackles. He is not great going forward, but is so much more reliable than Janmaat as a defender.And a Welsh International to boot – Taffy Dummett!

    These were my thoughts assessment on what I saw yesterday….
    Just got in from match

    cruising first half two sloppy goals second half – defence a worry!!!!!

    Man of the Match Anita for me by a mile
    Nathan for them…

    My assessment:

    Sels: jury’s out shouts at defence which I like but shaky at corners high balls into the six yard box
    Dummet – shaky start but grew into game looked better when went centre half.
    Lascalles – class act going to get better
    Hanley – first impression OK – but looks slow on the ball and likes to hit it long
    Janmaat – Same old same old – great going forward defending not the best

    Richie – looks a good buy – always the outlet ball wants the ball good crosser
    Anita – Absolute outstanding today – some of his passes were superb –
    Colback – same old gets the ball and passes but again to much fouling and niggling opposition for me
    Hayden – class act going to be a another good asset
    Gayle – boy is he quick always on the move – going to catch keepers out with his pressing, not bad in the air and took his goal well.
    Perez – tried but looked a little boy lost.

    subs:
    Saviet – did ok would keep
    Gamez – absolute TOSH
    Sterry – looks a good player in the making
    Gouffran – Did well but oops missed a chance to score (missed the ball)
    Aarons – to many tricks for me with no end product
    Armstrong – sorry lads – ain’t ready yet needs to go out on loan again not sure if he is going to make it – hope I;m wrong
    Shelley – nowt special – lost a lot of weight
    Mitro – same old Mitro annoying sod – to the opposition

    think thats everyone

    Conflicting reports on Gamez:-

    “He was willing to attack with purpose when called upon, and his calming influence helped settle United down.” (The Chronic)
    Compare that with what Charlie reported yesterday!

    I wouldn’t mind us going after Kieran Tierney of Celtic. Young very talented left back who had his breakthrough last year, and also got a national team call up.

    haidara like sdj,good…it may be a make or break season for them…these are the most injury prone players we have and at some stage the club may cut there losses,accept a daft bid or cancel there contracts to let them start again elsewhere….haidara not due back till end of august,not sure about sdj,but think good has played a couple of under 21 games.

    Springy,
    End of August? Will be interesting to see if he gets a chance once back. Dummet and Gamez are going to be ahead of him at that stage, unless we lose Janmaat and Gamez moves to the right.

    I think gayle has enough ability to get us close to 20 goals next year. That might warrant getting the no.9 jersey the way carroll did and he has scored goals in the Pl. The ha trick against liversion a few years ago springs to mind. It’s a good signing. He’s a good finisher who will make lots of runs. He can compliment good passers in midfield and a big man like mitro up front. Is he another Vardy? He could well be. A lot of similarities in many ways and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s getting an England call up in the next 3 years.

    I just hope whoever fills the no.9 jersey next does so like shearer did and not like the likes of cisse…Martins etc.

    i think rafa prefers players to play there natural position if they are good enough,so if haidara can get fit,stay fit and is good enough he may get the nod over gamez,dont no about dummett…not sure what rafa sees him as a left back or cb.

    According to a lot of outlets, Nufc are on the verge of ridding themselves of at least 3 players. So one would hope they will at least be replaced.
    If not then I personally will see the team weaker than last season

    Fostino- Andy Robertson from Hull to solve the left back problem. Hull have turned down a £ 7 million bid from West Ham and L’pool are said to be interested. He was outstanding in play off games and apparently outstanding whilst at Dundee U. He’s PL quality and we would then have more than a quarter of our starting eleven in the Scotland National side.

    Charlie,
    You mentioned Kodjia in you list I think. He had a great season last year at Bristol City who were struggling all season. He is an odd one though, 26 and has only really had 2 decent seasons in his career, one of which was in Ligue 2. Not sure I’d want him, despite last season.

    Ian,
    Yeah, I’ve been recommending Robertson as a signing for us since before he joined Hull. Strong in the tackle, quick and also has a fantastic delivery. I think if he leaves Hull there will be plenty of clubs interested in him.

    I think Kieran Tierney will be better in the future, and would be a great signing long term.

    out of the lb mentioned if it were my choice i would like robertson but think he has premier league teams willing to pay him big bucks…but if we dont try we’ll never know…he does have a lot more chance of playing here.

    Springy,
    Yeah, I agree that Rafa is more likely to want players in their right position – most managers do I’d imagine. I just find Gamez an odd signing if he wasn’t signed to be pushing for the left back role, unless Rafa was fairly certain Janmaat would be gone.

    I went in the Platinum Club, same price, just to see how the other half live! Team Valley Brush Company seat! In Gallowgate for season – thank god! Maybe the chronic reporter was with the majority in the Platinum, in the bar, or on the mobile!

    They are the top four strikers from last year who are still/will be playing in the Championship this season.
    Lil as for Kodjia had many people heard of the last centre forward we signed from Bristol City and looked what he did for us.

    … Andy Cole

    Out of all the lb suggestions, I would favour this lad the most too. Maybe the attraction for him might be the assurance of regular playing time, playing for a big club, being close to his home in Scotland and of course rafa. If I was Robertson I would do it.

    Very true..reckon il be secretly cheering Scotland on in future

    Charlie,
    Cole was a good deal younger though did well in his first full season before joining us. Kodjia isn’t quite the same. I wouldn’t be signing a striker from Blackburn just cause Shearer did well!!

    There are 2 Bristol City fans here in Malawi, and they raved about him, but he has only managed double figures twice in his career, one of those in Ligue 2.

    i think your right about gamez,he probably was brought in with the idea janmaat was on his bike,but the his age and contract size would imply to me that he’s basically a stop gap to cover all basis….rb,cb,lb,utility player as it were.

    Very quiet – no singing, swearing or shouting!
    Agree with Charlie on most players – Arma was disappointing, but injury lay off explains that – Jesus missed tackles, missed passes and looked ropey – Gouff made some dreadful touches just in front of Rafa.
    Really enjoyed Ritchie and thought Gayle was very quick if small for a centre forward – he will cause defences problems. Mitro was standing offside too often and needs to watch his elbows! Thought Hayden was MoM, closely followed by Big Vurn and Ritchie.
