Re: Transfer budget next season

Can't see Dyche being in a rush to leave. Unlikely that any of the top seven clubs would be in for him with perhaps the exception of Everton if they were to sack Koeman. A West Ham, Southampton or Stoke could be interesting, if any of those were to part company with their managers, but I think the r...

Re: brady was poor

Superb free kick aside, he looked well off the pace and needs to work harder but that will come with fitness and time. I'm sure he will turn out to be a quality addition.

Re: Sunday Football

Last year they played with two solid banks of four, worked hard off the ball and looked to counter on the break using the pace of Vardy and the skill of Mahrez. Now they seem to have given up on midfield and just play with four at the back, a great big gap in midfield and then a gaggle of quick but ...

3-5-2

I wonder whether the addition of Brady to the squad will see us to try a 3-5-2 formation? This would also allow us to get Tarmkowski into the side, albeit probably at the expense of Ward which would be harsh on him as he has been playing well. May also be a better option away from home where we need...

Presumably he can now sign a pre contract agreement to join us in summer on a free transfer. That may pressure Brighton into selling him now just so they can get a fee as they would know he wouldn't be re-signing for them.
