Da iawn. Diolch yn fawr, Simon Sadler!

As regards Woodburn's Welsh loyalty and affiliation - obviously borne of a strong sense of personal heritage - his self-identification as a Cymro should be respected. (I myself identify as Sandgrown and Welsh; a fact reflected by my lifelong support for both the Seasiders and Wales). Snide remarks on this thread regarding this are uncalled for and sadly divisive.

When did we become so negative about everything we do. Lighten up some of you ffs
I consider myself a positive person, especially about Blackpool, but I think it comes from maybe getting very excited before the season started and based off our start some are trying to stay more realistic and in turn pessimistic. I think the general response to this and most of our signings has been positive 👍

But you get the point surely

All flair players who play either in a front 3 or behind in an attacking role
I do get the point yeah but no need to stretch the point, really, I think. We have a lot of attacking players but it's very difficult to piece together a front 6 from them. Several of them I just wouldn't pick tbh ,at the moment, if I could avoid it - Kemp, Lubala, Yates, Madine. Kaikai needs to get his act together. Critchley will live or die by how he manages to make sense of it all. Defence too.

CJ, Sarkic, Anderson, Woodburn all seem to have something to offer but we need a central striker to slot in and make sense of it I think.

50 minutes to get one. 🤓

Goals will come... what we really need is some backbone in midfield to allow some of our more creative players to do the job they’re here to do

But if Virtue was fit you could play him and Robson as olding players, Anderson and CJ front wide players, and Woodburn or Sarkic as a number 10. Just need DJ Campbell back and we're in business.

Good signing but he ain’t the experienced tough tackling midfielder we need. Hopefully he comes in the next 20 minutes.

It speaks volumes that Liverpool have sent none of their youngsters our way. I think we all hoped that one or two of their best under 21's would end up being improved whilst playing for us under Critchley's coaching at Blackpool. Perhaps Liverpool are not unhappy that Critchley moved on.
Or maybe its because you have clubs offering them fees as well as their full wage and we aren't in a position to do that. Look at Harry Wilson to Cardiff. They're paying his full wage and £1m fee as well for him for the season.

Must admit I’m pretty happy with the signings. Dougall is the no-nonsense David Vaughan type midfielder we’re crying out for - with plenty of experience too and in his prime. Woodburn can play up top, will want to impress Critch and Liverpool and likes to get forward and take shots. This should free up the front 3 by giving more creativity behind and give support to the defence - which we’re still yet to see in its bolstered form. Our last 4 signings are very very impressive. Ward and Anderson have to step up their games now especially with Virtue and KaiKai soon back to full fitness.
We seriously have a hell of a squad.
