 Yes cheers Allan, they don't come along too often but well worth the time to read it.

Take no notice of the critics  ;D

We might go back in for Scott McKenna from Aberdeen perhaps.

Joe Lolley is not just a winger too IMO

Seen us linked with a Dutch central defender from Huddersfield today (Terrance Knogolo) for £18m which is what Huddersfield paid for him apparently.

Any good? I stopped watching the Premier League when we left it so no idea myself.

+1 from me, I enjoy reading them - the last one was pretty much on the money IMO. I'd taken it from what Purslow had said previously that we were probably targeting the 3 positions you'd mentioned plus a few irons in the fire to strengthen overall - buy them if the price is right, it's not a problem if it isn't.

Perhaps Allan could have a thread in which he can post these things? Clearly he works at them and people enjoy reading them.

Part exchange?  Have they any talent?

Could do with a synopsis for those that are meant to be working and just try to speed read before getting back to work.

They were trialling something on the BBC website a few weeks ago where you read a simplified version of an article and then if you wanted it in long form with more detail, facts and figures you clicked on 'read in more depth'. Actually quite a good idea.

Going back to Allanís post, personally I think holding midfield is the key signing. We have absolutely no cover there and I really think that position is make of break in the PL in a way it isnít in the championship. Although even then we saw the difference an in-form Whelan made when it came to the ability of grealish and SJM to hurt teams further up the pitch.

I know such players are very expensive but if we spend big money on a defensive/continuity player we have a lot more flexibility to move players around in front of them.
