If Richards is out for any length of time I can see why they might be looking for a starter over Toff - looks quite slow which is a little exposed in combo with McKenna

Toff looked solid in the previous pre season game, but got exposed vs better opposition today. Needs to be more defensively sound as he isn’t quick enough to account for poor positioning.

LB, then striker, then midfield depth for me are real needs this week

My worry is this is the level he will be against. Only 1 game against some very good attackers but I fear it will be targeted

just like that!
We worried about Colback at left back.

Worry when our players are not good enough, not at the thought they might not be.

They are playing for Forest, pulling on the Garibaldi lifts the spirits and the skill level.

I hope.
Eugene Dadi is outside and wants a word.

For a club with no money they don't half splash the cash, perhaps Joe was not not as accurate as he seemed when he said "Its not exactly Barcelona, Its Derby"

They mortgaged their future earnings, haven't they? Literally a case of the never-never... but they have to hope that Super League will become a thing so they get guaranteed rights for some years!

And they have to move a lot of players on to comply with the league's FFP/Salary cap.

Bonkers!

Bit of a come down from the huge fees that they were previously reported to be looking for. If we can get the agree a fee that's within the seven figure range then it'd be decent business.

Not really. Relying on Toffolo to fill the gap til October puts a lot of pressure on someone who has mainly played in the lower leagues. As decent as he is.
Then loan someone. We will end up with three LWB, all signed in one window. I don't buy the 'can play further forward' argument either, we are past square pegs in round holes.

If Lareya is considered cover for RWB then Colback can be considered cover for LWB and we don't appear to be targeting a RWB.

Seems fishy to me.

The fact that we are looking at buying someone for a substantial fee rather than bringing in a loan signing or cheaper short term stop gap leads me to believe that Richards injury is much worse than what is being reported.
I'd be minded to agree, it seems a drastic action to take for someone who is out of action for a few months, we don't really know the cause either so if its a long standing issue or likely to recur then it could be that even if he's healed quite quickly, the recovery period needs to be longer.
