    The future of Joao

    Really should be offered a new deal now. Can’t afford to let an asset like him go on a free. If not unfortunately cash in on him. Always banged on about his obvious talent, it was just lacking any kind of consistency. Age still on his side. He could end up going for daft money.

    See what you did there. I didn't think he seemed the same player after he had his tooth knocked out. Seems Jos has rebuilt his confidence hope he repays him next season.

    The future of Joao

    joao will be a regular starter next season with nuhiu and forestieri so needs a longer deal ,also will score a lot more than 9 now that he has a manager who plays him. fletcher,hooper will play very little if they don't leave this summer due to there injury records .

    Surely bloody not!

    Unless his loan turns into a paid transfer then it will be a bad deal. We needed to get him away from the squad but he is currently broken so, as a saleable asset, we are currently down.

    I was thinking more like Agent Carlos destroying another club but if he can help with FFP by selling some pop and a ride home then yeh why not.
  7. One day though. One day before making a massive snap judgement without actually knowing anything about the deal.

    You'd like to think so. We should and hopefully will be in the driving seat from now on. That doesn't mean you always get what you want it just means you drive the agenda. We'll have a better handle on the KM/DC partnership and what she brings to the table after the next couple of windows. Fingers crossed she operates like a "woman scorned...." Classic good cop/bad cop partnership!!!

    It's common sense isn't it ? Wednesday will do that won't they ? That's what the C.E.O will do ? You would like to think so ......

    The future of Joao

    I agree. A young player like João, whose value could soar if he hits a purple patch (£6m for Gary Madine, anyone?), would be a massive loss to our club if he walked away on a free transfer. He's shown the potential to be a real threat at this level, looked to be finding good form under Luhukay, and I hope the club will be tying him down to a new contract over the summer.

    The future of Joao

    the problem with leaving it til January is that if he does perform well then he'll know he'll be in demand and can walk away for free and pocket himself and his agent a huge signing on fee....players in the last few months of there contracts don't usually go for large sums as Barnsley found out with winall & hourihane ......for me the good players who's contracts expire next year should be offered extensions now ......of course he may revert to being crap if we do offer him new deal now but that's the gamble you take .

    R lass mentioned something about tying him down

    The future of Joao

    Sounds daft, but considering how they both finished last season, don't bet against Nuhiu and Joao being our starting front two next season, with a space for Forestieri somewhere.

    The future of Joao

    It seems everybody's doyen this and everybody's doyen that at the moment.. Its a wonder anybody knows what they are doyen at all. I just hope things get sorted out before the start of the season so that we all finally know what we're actually doing!

    The future of Joao

    He will be vital to us next season. See how he starts the season. If we’ll, offer a good deal in January. If not, sell to the highest bidder. Can’t afford to lose him for free.

  19. Andy Hinchcliffe was good for us when fit. Go on youtube and look at the corners he used to take. Andy Sinton on the other hand......
  20. Brian Barry Murphy Kidman Jeffers Potter Beswetherick Colin West Dean Smith Feeney oh this is too depressing.

    I was also under the impression we'd literally stolen him from Barnsley. Obviously, much has changed since he arrived, he could have been a great player for us under Jos I feel. Now it looks like he'll be reluctant to come back, that changes the dynamic of selling him a little but I too would expect to see a decent return on him even after his ACL.

    Top 6 The Maximum Expectation or the Minimum

    Difficult to answer this one. I think towards the end of the season, with a number of players coming back, we can all look back and adopt a 'look what could have happened' attitude, if most of our best players had been available during the season. With that, I suppose expectation and belief dictate that a fully fit side, even without additions SHOULD have us aiming for top 6. However, it is not as simple as that, as we all know. The Premier League is the promised land, with the financial rewards that go with it, but I would like us to build on the end of season performances, continue to develop the younger players and give them opportunities to get experience, and just play with more freedom, and go out as a team and express themselves. Top 12 would be ok for me, with the 'bonus' of finishing top 6.

    Surely bloody not!

    Didn't we get him for under a million? I'd expect a lot more than what we paid.
  24. Westwood was truly terrible; but I'd say Blondeau was probably the worse. Came as a hard man, International player, and defender of the year in France (if my memory serves me right) Heard from a friend (who's from Marseille - where Blondeau is from) that he was involved in mafia (still is), makes you wonder if the transfer to us was part of making some dodgy money (agent fees) - from Marseille (played for Monaco) - goes to Sheffield for 1.8m and then leaves after 6 games (or so).

    The future of Joao

    For me, he is the only strikers we have, who has genuine pace, and is willing to run at defenders. The latter part of the season, I personally think he came of age. Yes, there are still times when his decision making is a bit suspect, but look at the goal against Forest away. Who else in our side, FF aside, do you think would have had the pace to get away from the defenders and score. A decent, prolonged spell in the side did wonders for him. Playing regularly, increased his match fitness and awareness, and he provided the perfect foil for Big Dave. I hope Jos recognises his attributes, and the club recognise that he does possess a great deal of talent and ability, which the manager and coaching staff need to coax and encourage.
  26. I'd say Bullen was awful also; king of the short back pass. The whole stadium has their heart on their mouth every time he went to play is back. He was generally off the pace on the poo league 1. Only loved cos he tried hard and had a good attitude (which is all you need with some supporters)
