As expected Mo Besic has been released by Everton along with Walcott, Bolasie and Josh King (poor decision from King to join them).

I'm falling on the side that we've outgrown Besic and we need more from a midfielder than he offers, but I expect there will be a large number of Blades wanting him back.

After his impressive loan spell Neil wants Bolasie back at Boro, as well as Diedhiou to get on the end of his crosses. Boro are a bit of a worry, they've got a decent squad of contracted players and Gibson will let Neil splash the cash on loans. They must have something up their sleeve to let Assombalonga leave.

As for King he's a mercenery looking for more cash than we can pay, some mugs will though.

Not sure we've outgrown Mo Besic mate. Think he'd be an absolutely banging free signing. All round good player and all round great bloke. Dunno how he would get on with Slav mind.

Ayew. Age 31. Striker. We have SEVEN strikers.

Hendry. Very tall. 26.

Just to say, "we are being linked" Really. Do any of us know what Slav plans to do with regard to ins and outs?

No dig at all, just don't get why we are falling for clickbait sites speculating on our ins and outs when our manager hasn't even sat at his desk yet. I'm sure you see that.

I wonder what morale is like for Fulham players such as Hector, Kebano, Bryan, Rodak, Onomah ? Big players for their promotion season but effectively binned off when they got to the PL. Not much of an incentive for them to win promotion.

If we do flog Egan, and I think there's a market for him, that should fund Cooper and Hector. Not a bad Championship pairing, pace might be an issue but there's leadership there and goals.

Yeah lets keep talking about the knee instead eh Sean. :giggle: It's just summat to discuss on a BLADES forum mi owd pal,of course we don't know who Slav may or not be interested in signing but if we wait until someone actually signs before we post owt they may as well shut the forum down mi thinks.UTB

I really think Slav will jump all over any of the players he knows well and rates who are available.
He won't be doing a huge makeover, some quality upgrades in key ares and motivating the rest to actually perform, which I doubt they'll argue with.

Were he to get 90 minutes out of Moussett he would have legendary status.
Were he able to get season out of Mousett firing us back up he would have the freedom of the city and the England Managers job. Which I would be happy to create the vacancy for by a well planned sniping taking Southc u n t s head off.

Totally agree about talking Blades stuff mate. Hate the BLM shit with a passion. Like I said, no dig at you, just the clickbait crap on virtually every newsfeed that links us with every name from A t Z.

It's one of those where I look at some of the names on Chronic's midfielders list and there's players who can give us what Besic does, the closing down, the tackling, the crisp short passing - but they also offer more when it comes to attack.

I wouldn't be unhappy if Besic signed but I'm hoping for more dynamism in midfield.

Slav might not be sat at his desk at BDTBL right now, but he will have given Van Wikel (or whoever) a list of names of who he'd like the club to look at

Bunch of out of contracts there.

Some that stand out for me are:

Jose Izquierdo
Scott Dann
James McCarthy
Nathan Baker
Famara Diedhiou
Britt Assombalonga
Sammy Ameobi
Alex Pritchard
A few keepers we could get as backup too.

I like the idea of Ameobi on a free, as an impact and rotation player if we use wingers. He can be a great outlet.
