    Are there no right-backs in the rest of the world?

    Probably but I think people underestimate the damage that Congerton’s done to our scouting. We’re down to the bare bones here, it’s when you start working on the knowledge of those already at the club, which is largely British based.

    Probably just putting 2 and 2 together after the Tommy Smith fiasco.

    I rate Baldock quite highly. I’d be happier with him than Smith and I’d imagine he’ll come cheaper.

    Am sure the rules changed to allow players who play in qualifiers can play in group stages if they change teams

    Hopefully we find out the price they're looking for and put in an opening offer of 50% of it, before going up in £10k increments until they accept then.

    Or until another club, probably english, just pays the asking price.

    Don’t think this will happen. We looked at him before Stacey and Smith and for some reason didn’t pursue him.

    Don’t think Sheffield Utd want to sell.

    Have they signed another RB since?
    I don’t think anything significant has changed at their end therefore still can’t see this one progressing.

    100% hope I’m proved wrong

    Don’t think so mate tbh they want to offer him a bigger deal!

    It will be Stephen O’Donnell and it will be how it’s a great Scottish player and knows the city

    Look abroad.

    I'd probably look at the other hundreds of RBs available first.

    Toljan had an impressive CV, and I don’t really remember seeing a negative reaction to his signing. But he was * gash. Just because players on the continent are cheaper doesn’t mean they are better, although I don’t want Baldock either.

    I don't think anyone suggested that.

    The fact Toljan didn't work out shouldn't stop us from looking abroad.

    While he had a reasonable CV I'd rather we - for the most part - went for guys whose career was on an upwards trajectory. When we go for those who aren't cutting it at other clubs it usually doesn't work out for us eg. Compper, Burke, Gamboa, Pukki, Boerrigter etc.
