Re: How many players will we sign this summer?

The policy seems to be: A) Give the youngsters a chance in pre season and go away with the firsts. B) If there’s any glaring deficiencies in the squad; sign some players in those positions. I kinda like that philosophy - we all know we won’t be able to sign another Puscas or Joao or Ejaria on big mo...

Celtic reportedly in for Kyle Edwards too.

One of the Turkish teams (Rizespor) chasing Yannick Bolasie have pulled out of negotiations.

Re: Rumour - Yannick Bolasie & Junior Hoillet

Bolasie is still pacy. Would be a great addition to squad.

I’ve never rated Hoillett as highly as many seem to. Although he is local and as an attacking full back it could be a masterstroke until the academy lads progress.

Guaranteed to be ruined by the sponsors. But I guess it’s all money in the coffers.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

It won’t be for everyone because it’s different. But that’s exactly what we needed and it looks retro af.

Agreed the legends names in the hoops adds a touch of class 8)

Slapping the Select Car Leasing and Rapidz logo’s on there will ruin it somewhat - eager to see the away kit now!

Re: Interesting.Is Nelson Oliveira really available?

Set to sign with PAOK. Good move for him, 3yr deal at €700k per season. They also look to be title contenders this season.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Why would there be any association based purely on the year founded. We've got nothing else in common. Both clubs are loyal to the crown Exactly. Like I said before the old timers chirped in; I’m surprised there’s not more of an affiliation. The fact we also both share the anniversary in the same y...

Why? It’s not like we’ll cross paths with many teams that would hate us for it.

Would be great if the club organised a friendly between the clubs really. Always been surprised there’s not more of an affiliation between us.

Re: Esneyder Mena

Gives me a bit of the Paolo Hurtado feels.

Although nice to see an attacking FB linked. Yiadom is quick but really isn’t that great once he gets in the final third.

A senior LWB is bound to be a target and the window isn’t open yet, so not sure why people are bemoaning this.
