    But according to people on here, Dahlberg isn't good enough.

    Just doesn't make sense to me.

    Bachmann has shown he is a capable number 2, and on the basis of last night he can push Foster.

    Foster is seemingly happy to stay and should be more than capable this season.

    He barely got a sniff. Scouts have praised Pontus. The raw ingredients are all there. But Gino and his henchmen really know how to manage young players. Either they disappear into a black hole not playing or playing in an obscure league or they become highly valuable. Under Papa Pozzo they would get sold for a premium from a position of strength. But because Gino is clueless we'll be selling them for a pittance.

    For want of a decent defender a club is going to rack and ruin. Just keep buying forwards Gino you prat. Who did we sign last season ? Dawson. Would have been better to sign Les Dawson. At least he would have raised a smile.

    For those saying sure but we have not seen Pontus play the same can be said about Pedro. Like Pontus he has the ability so you can understand why they feel u23 football is beneath them. It has nothing to teach them. We can all see the talent of Pedro now. Had Pontus played we would be seeing that as well. But here we are looking at an over the hill geriatric instead. Forget the impact on Bachmann as well. Keep Foster and spend what little we have for Ivic to decide where he needs the squad to be improved.

    It is another bizarre transfer if it occurs. Surely our priorities lie elsewhere in the team?

    It’s loose Italian reports - worth noting sure, but let’s not go overboard just yet. I suspect the club still want another GK anyway to replace Gomes spot and Parkes surely won’t be seen as that player.

    I don’t think it means by any stretch that Foster is definitely off. He’s been quoted as saying he wants to stay on TalkSport because he doesn’t want to be a backup elsewhere at this stage. Given his comments about interests outside the game, I really doubt he is motivated to be go somewhere and not play. He’s only been linked with Spurs and Chelsea as backup - and Chelsea are buying the Rennes GK and also have Caballero and Kepa. Spurs have Lloris, Hart and Gazzanigga.

    Harsh on a 30 year old! Replacing wrinkly 37-year old Ben would bring the average age down, no?

    As Burnsy said above, there's no concrete report and we're linked with this guy every year so I'm not reading too much into it yet, but wouldn't be happy if it did. Think we're in quite a good position in the GK department now. Play Foster as no.1 and start to ease Bachmann in so he's ready to take over next season, Dahlberg to return next year as no.2 and to compete with Dan. Should in theory be set for the next 3-5 years+.

    Definitely don't see this, two international keepers and Bachmann? Seems a bit much, think Foster, Bachmann and Parkes is fine. If Olsen wouldn't be brought in to play, we'd be wasting a non-HG spot in the squad as well

    This bloke is the new Davide Santon, perennially linked never moved for.

    3GK's still here, another out on loan, and there is a rumour of buying yet another one.

    We let Holebas go, Massina is injured, Kiko is not a LB, we had a very good one signed to us, and we sold him.

    un f*****g believable this management team.

    hold your horses, chances are this is completely bullocks. Giaretta even said we weren’t looking at him, yet you still prefer to slag off the club for something that could simply be agent talk?

    the club cannot win in some fans eyes no matter what they do.

    This would be very good business if true. Our fans need to give their heads a wobble. We’ve been relegated and are touching cloth.

    Signing a player from the likes of AS Roma would have been a dream for us 10 years ago and now people are slating this guy.

    The fact that we have 3 goalkeepers already who could potentially do a job at this level is irrelevant. It’s about doing the right deals at the right time.

    Pozzo model. Good business. Football people. Scouting network.

    Unless it’s ********, in which case, well done Watford for not signing this piece of ****.

    I get it's only a rumour mate.
    It simply highlights the fact that the club seem to want to buy bargains, no matter where they play, instead of focusing on the positions that need filling. How long have we needed our defence strenthening? Instead the put all their eggs in one basket with the signing of Sarr, then let two managers not even bloody play him, and it now looks like he will be sold as well. What did we then get to shore up our creaky, leaky defence?..... Creaky leaky Dawson!!!

    oh i completely concur, but that doesnt change the fact that this rumour is simply because of agent talk. our own director of football has come out and said so, it just seemed to be the wrong stick to bash the club with this time.

    I agree with you. Entirely. But can you link me to where Giaretta said this? I haven’t read it anywhere?

    I'm just getting so hacked off with the whole thing, can't attend matches, all this PC posturing on the knee, fake stadium sounds, being fed bullcrap about players being injured, who clearly aren't, players thinking they are too good to play in the championship, when they got us there. Players touting themselves for sale and nobody wants them. Players we really should keep "demanding" a move and being sold off, and the club tell us next to nothing or out and out lies.
    Now they are talking about 1000 fans being let in, but not in your own seat, no doubt every move, and gesture you make, every word you say will be monitored. It's currently a total $hit show and I'm seriously thinking of jacking it all in, until they can, if ever, get it back to the way it was and I don't see that happening this season.

    You do realise that, much like this post, this is probably utter b0llocks don't you?

    We don't need another GK! Unless Ben is leaving of course?

    So rumour of GK aside, are you saying Holebas is still here? Massina is not injured? Kiko is a natural LB? and the management team are superb?

    Or were you just being rude for the sake of it?
  26. Knight GT

    Are you saying you believe this rumour? Apologies for being rude

    If you go back up the thread you will see I acknowledged the rumour was poo, (posted at 9.03 if you want to check) but I just needed to vent.

    Apology accepted, you are not normally rude.
