Murphy will still be here when the season starts UNLESS BIG MONEY are offered (which is possible) but we do need depth in that position and Murphy has shown he can take knocks, so in my opinion we would only sign a LW for cover that or see Murphy drift to the RW OR if Baxter gets 6 month suspension use him in a AMC role  :whi

I did see this article last night (Nice to know that NA has been readng my posts  :DB ) http://www.teamtalk.com/sheffield-united/9905987/Sheffield-United-boss-Nigel-Adkins-has-spoken-to-several-players-as-he-bids-to-strengthen-his-squad this one line "I'm not going to give you a number, but it's fair to say that we need to improve the goals and we need to keep more clean sheets."

If we're doing "build your own" conclusions from Twitter, what about this post from Jim Phipps  :whi

Which one? the one that said

Draw your own conclusions but Billy Sharp's twitter account has been almost free of post since Sunday ... and he is usually pretty active, this is a good indicator something is happening! IMO

You know ... I don't necessarily agree nor disagree with the "we don't have a promotion side" there was several things lacking last year...
  • Negative Football - looking to win 1-0 is always fraught with danger, NA doesn't play that football
  • Settled Team - NC chopped and change never allowing the team to build chemistry, not sure how NA will approach this but it is an important dynamic   
  • Alienated players - Several players where on his "Shit List" and never got a look in and our defense suffered heavily for that, NC just didn't like that Collins shared his initials :whi however another year under Kennedys belt and Collins back in the frame may be a good thing at CB, also I think there were several open slights at player, such as playing payers out of position when there player who specialize in that area (Basham at CB, Flynn at RB) this causes disharmony.   
  • The only two things I worry about is an out and out goal scorer, McNulty maybe the answer but it's all about confidence and Goalkeeper I've said for a couple of year Howard is in consistent the Blades have always had solid keepers (Waugh, Budgie, Tracey, Kelly, etc) however Howard is not he's too sporadic

They are a couple that spring to mind, we obtained a Playoff spot with a dejected team and negative tactics just think where we could be with belief and positive football... Somebody has to step up and get goals and Maybe that McNulty and / or Done  :^^ and if not we need a striker but I do think we are well equipped today to make a solid run at automatic.  :DB
(all thoughts and comment are made with the understanding I reserve the right to change my mind,  disagree with myself, contradict myself or even deny making them at ANY time  :roll: )

Stabo, reading articles in the "Star" NA is willing to fend off offers from Wigan for Done and/or Murphy if that is truly the case I think it won't take long for him to realize that going to Leeds would be a suicidal way to start his tenure at BDTBL. We know we need a striker but I doubt is going to sell a couple of best assets to obtain one  :^^ and especially not to the Scum!

IMHO  :ok:

Stay around Tex, it can get worse than this. The other 2 must be going through the change :DD

Going through? sounds like they went though a long time ago!!!

Anyway so Lee Turnbull head of Recruitment / Chief Scout ... rumour is he could also fill in as the No. 9  :whi

Loads of rumours about Diego. Bolton, Bournemouth the latest. Load of bollocks.

Diego didn't set the world alight while out on loan. Time to knuckle down and EARN the right to either a big move, or to be part of the Adkins revolution  ;D

How do you change the order in which the posts appear (e.g. newest first instead of oldest first)?  I'm sure it's obvious, just can't see it anywhere. Cheers.
