Talking the Blues Podcast, a review of the squad, who we should keep & who should go

Welcome to this week’s Talking the Blues’ Podcast with Andy and George Costigan. In a rare podcast for us, we focus almost entirely on the squad, manager and director of football.

We analyse person by person, who should stay, who should go and as a result what our squad looks like and what’s required to be brought in. As usual a bit of humour and some classic anti- United stuff from the Costigans!


Thanks for listening. Our podcasts are available on all major podcast platforms, links to which can be found here

  1. Hi fellas,
    Nice to talk football for a change. I think there will be some surprises and shocks if we are to build a squad to finish mid table. Mid table and a comfortable 40 points with a minimum of 10 games to go has to be the target. It also raises a few quid through league placing. I can come up with reasons for people to stay as much as go so I just want to see it happen and I’ll be as surprised and shocked as anybody. Harsh as it is no player is more important than “THE PLAN – YEAR ONE.”

    I do agree that the most likely saleable option is probably Iwobi – not signed the contract that was under negotiation so he hedged his bets wisely. His stats are excellent for chances created so he will have clubs looking at him.

    Up front – Cannon has to be a decent back up. Not really sure DCL has a great sell on value because if his fitness levels. So we need a striker who can play 38 games and we use DCL and Cannon to back him up. That might suite both very well. For me that looks like Gyokeres from Coventry – circa £17 to £20m.

    If we can raise the money for Gyokeres by selling Iwobi – I’d take that.

    The U23’s have some real prospects including strikers – Onyango, McAllister, Kouyate, Okoronkwo – I’d be adding them to the squad for match days on a rota basis

    We also have some decent midfielders – Mills, Warrington.

    Onwards and upwards
