  1. Excellent appointments. Both have vast experience and hopefully will start shaking up our backroom staff. Gary Lewin particularly has worked with the best coming through the ranks after starting as a goalkeeper.

  2. Let’s hope he can bring in to the club the success and impeccable fitness record achieved at Araenal football club over the years….. Hang on wait a minute. Only joking.

  3. We have no problem signing medical staff, hopefully the player situation will improve, can’t understand why Nolito hasn’t been approached we could probably sign him for 15 – 20 million which is more than City paid for him.

    • I’d even punt for Alvaro Negredo. Great physical striker, just needs supply. Been relegated with Boro, so must be available buy/loan from Valencia, where he’s really pi55ed off the hierarchy. Got nine for Boro in a crap team last season, ran us ragged a couple of years ago for City in the 6-0 semi drubbing and ended with 23 for them in the season.

      Proven in the EPL.

      You listening, Sully?

  4. No one in this country will sign Nolito 32.About a month ago he said he cant wait to get back to Spain and away from our weather.He said his daughter had changed colour & looked like she had been living in a cave for a year 😂😂

  5. Well we need some miracles . Can those healing hands get Carroll and Sakho out of Thier sick beds . Would be like two news signings right there . I won’t hold my breath though .
