Carroll at 7 is a weird one.

Does seem odd that Almiron stays at 24 while 8 games a season (and thats optimistic) Carroll gets 7. Also, how do ROI internationals count as homegrown, whats the criteria?

Homegrown denotes where you were trained, Clark was in Villa's academy and Blob was in Charlton's. They're both English born anyway

2 Clark
7 Carroll
12 and 13 for Gayle and Muto. Absolute disgrace.

ASM should be 7, Almiron 10 and Krafth 2.

Krafth 2, Longstaff 7, Almiron 10, ASM 11, IMO

Longstaff 4 or 8, but I could live with 7.

Yes, it was a happy day for him and his family by all accounts.

Did we ever get to know who the mystery signing pictured with a shirt at St James Park is?

22 this year so isn't eligible for team. Maybe League Cup games and reserves then..

Pretty sure he was told what he was coming to. A year of showing what he's about in the u23's and possibly in cup's.

Some weird ones. Some good ones.

How long is Ritchie's current contract? Any more than a two year deal for that c*** is taking the p*ss. Also, didn't Lascelles just sign a new contract? Surely he doesn't need a new one already.

Steve talking about Ritchie as a part of the future, the cornerstone, the nucleus of the squad. No wonder the c*** brown nosed Mike Ashley.

Doesn't need explaining but if Ritchie is our future then we're basically just accepting our very low ceiling. He was purchased because we needed a winger who would guarantee goals from midfield in the Championship. Him being part of the season 2 consolidation effort was fair enough, but there was still no reason why he couldn't have been upgraded on as soon as we got promoted. Two years on from that moment and he's still one of the first names on the teamsheet? Just another sorry example of the club's total lack of ambition.

On watching Joelinton and S-M, we 100% have not replaced Ayoze's general play and teamwork.  We've lost a player who knew how to attack and defend in equal measure.

The scary thing is the players Rafa would have looked to off load and replace with better to take us to the next level are the ones Bruce wants new contracts for.

Not sure Bruce has much to do with it TBF, except he’s prepared to say any old s****.
