Murger, one of the recruitment team at Stoke, left Burnley to take up their post. Just wish he was back with us, as he's highly respected at his job in football.

Hope you are Havana good time.
The spine of our side is looking first class. Drinkwater, either playing or subbing can only be a good thing.

Your view, to which you are entitled, but you suggest our recruitment team don't know what they are doing and that's crap. They are far better than either you or I.

It looks like we are talking to Chelsea about bringing in a 29 year old England international to strengthen our much maligned central midfield.
Please can only updates on Drinkwater be kept to this thread.
Personally, I think this would cap a strong window given the quality of the two signings we have brought in and the recovery of one or two from injury, especially if we keep Tarks.

Where does the fella from Leeds come into it then?

Whichever way you look at it we replaced an outgoing goalkeeper with an incoming one within a few days, which is evidence that we can replace players when required.

Pretty sure I didn't say that at all to the degree you are suggesting. It was a mere observation on our last 4 years of business and that done so far this window. Not sure I've said anything you can dispute tbh. We don't seem to sign players from abroad who haven't played in England (other than Defour) and we have a predominantly British squad. Therefore we are for the most part paying more for the players because of the market we shop in - my question was who makes those decisions really

Edit: I would hope they know more than us :D

Leeds lad is for the u23’s.

My original post said first teamers. As in starters. What happens when we need to replace players in the starting eleven. I’m not having a dig, just genuinely baffled as to what we would do.

Either we replace them from within the club, as we've done with Heaton (and Keane in the past) or we go out and buy someone (like we did a couple of seasons ago when Gray left).

In my view signed quite a few how shall I say duffers these last few years so I disagree with that statement and spent an awful lot of money on these as well as wages - the problem is we keep looking into the wrong market and have done for a while but doubt this will change while dyche is boss

Our recruitment approach is baffling though. How long has Dyche known we've needed a midfielder for? It's just the same every single window.

Why can’t we sign a centre mid then. We’ve needed one for the last 4 windows.

You mean Blake and thankfully we have better people employing staff these days than we did then. Rigg is the technical director which includes a senior role within the academy.

We should have been developing young players ready to step in when we lose a player for the starting 11.

But we haven’t been doing that, we we’ve shown a preference to sign older pros as stop gaps. So now we’re left with a gap in the squad, unless one of the U23s can step in (which is quite rare).

Maybe the people in the recruitment team haven’t done such an amazing job as some seem to think.

Our last 4 years of business is so bad that we are now entering our 4th year in the premier league following on from a small venture into Europe.

They must be doing something right given we spent all but 2 of the previous thirty odd years at Championship level or below.

Don’t you think we are addressing that now? McNeil, hopefully followed soon by Benson, is evidence of improvements in that area.

Yes we are addressing the U23s, which is great. I’m all for that.

But we could do with younger first team players behinds the starting 11. We’ve not signed one of those since Charlie Taylor.

This getting into Europe is fast becoming the new Orient mantra. Our transfer windows have been the same as has been said for that past 4 windows. We all bleat on about how the club can't afford this amount and that amount, yet we go and throw away 11m on vydra. There must have been some serious cash sitting on our bench at times last season. It is seriously frustrating.

It’s the usual drivvle.

You say we can get better from Europe to improve the team. Given we performed better than everyone up to Man U in the 2nd part of last season, along with the full previous season you automatically assume that buying from Europe will take us above the biggest club in the world. They take bigger dumps than we can afford to spend and we are actually only a few points behind them in performance...

There is no evidence to suggest buying more from Europe will improve us. We took Defour and as great as he is (one of the best I have ever seen in a Claret shirt), it was a risk and has proved to be a risk. Most players from Europe will prefer more money from big city clubs. That is just a fact unfortunately.

For the size of club we are, we are absolutely smashing it at the moment.

We are absolutely smashing it, far beyond anyone’s expectations but something isn’t right on the recruitment side. It’s plain to see.

Of course, they haven’t, but people do seem to be talking him up like he is the next big thing. He might well turn out to be, fingers crossed he does, but from what I saw of him at Crewe he is a way off. We need a CM for the here and now.

I'll await your next reply of "make **** up as you go along"


Exactly Jesus wept. You said we could definitely improve by getting players from abroad. There’s nothing definite about it at all.

We sign players for the under-23, (and younger) and look to develop them to be their replacements.

Is it not simply down to finances. The Chairman and his staff have their own valuation of the player(s) and simply won't pay these over inflated prces, moreover, it's the wages that's required, especially when other interested parties intervene. It will be a niggle with the Manager and whilst I'm sure he's addressed the issue with the Chairman on numerous ocassions it must fustrate him. To be honest I can't see it changing unless we pick up some gems from foreign lands, presumably that's where Rigg will shine. This season will be a telling one though.

How many players have come through from the youth team in the last 15 years.

Name a club that hasn't bought any 'duffers', as you say?

We best get planning for relegation then as we will never be able to bring any even as good a player as the quality of the ones we have now.
