  1. When they went to the toilet it’d have been 2-1 to them.
  2. Agreed, even if we miss out on this deal that still leaves us with Gregory, Smith, Windass and Paterson who can all play up front and all have goal scoring pedigree either at this level or the level above. It’s not like we are short of options for our forward line.
  3. If the fee had already been agreed and Hull have gone back in that, then absolutely no way should we go back offering more.
  4. My cousins husband is a pig fan and when they signed Berg he told me he’d turned down a move to Man Utd in order to sign for the pigs….. so don’t try to tell me there are a shortage of clubs wanting to sign him at a heavily discounted price.
  5. I’d guess the majority of that was spent on strikers…. And Billy Sharpe is still their best striker.
  6. Never mind, if things get really bad we can always sell the stadium.
  7. Agreed, people bang on about how we should be great full he’s underwriting the clubs losses and say “be careful what you wish for” completely ignoring the fact that’s it’s down to his incompetence we are losing this much money. He’s the worst thing to happen to our club in decades, I’d honestly take Dave Allen back over this clown.
  8. With that idiot running the club this really doesn’t come as a surprise
  9. Saw this earlier, desperately sad news. My thoughts and prayers are with them.
  10. I remember when we used to keep each kit for two seasons, alternating which one was changed each summer. I always did think the switch to changing both each season was just a ploy to rip off fans.
  11. If Paterson wasn’t already our player and we were signing one or the other then I’d go along with that, but Paterson is already here. I actually think Paterson gets a lot of unfair stick on here if I’m being honest, scored 12 goals in the Championship for a rubbish side that finished bottom of the league and given the game time I’m convinced he’d bag at least 15 at this level.
  12. Wilks is a good player at this level but as I said in another thread, I think we weee starting to collect one too many strikers so I wouldn’t be too bothered if he didn’t sign. Gregory, Windass, Smith and Paterson are all capable of hitting over 15 goals each at this level given the game time.
  13. Also if they can’t get Parrot back on loan they’ll be a lot weaker next season.
  14. It would be crazy to move Bannan this season to accommodate the extra forwards we are signing. If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.
  15. Given the system we play and the fact we don’t play with wingers or wide attackers we have the 6 that you have listed. We could get rid of Paterson and Sow but that’s easier said than done and Paterson will still be on a Championship contract. To me this signals an intent by Moore to “tinker” with the forward line on a regular basis and it’s my belief that this will be to the detriment of the club. Regular changes to the attack won’t allow a decent partnership to develop and it’ll interfere with any attempt to create continuity, personally I’d like to see 2 forwards given a run of 10 to 12 games at the start of the season to see how the partnership develops. Preferably that would be Windass and Gregory, I look back at that goal at Oxford last season and there’s some really potential in that partnership but it needs to develop. After our defeat to Huddersfield in the playoffs when talking about the number of strikers we had at the club, it was Andy Hinchcliffe who said ‘sometimes less is more’.
  16. Perhaps he could send his “research” to Wycombe’s chairman as well, I’m sure he’ll still have his contact details from the last time he wrote to them.
  17. My point wasn’t about amount paid, it was about having too many strikers.
  18. Think it put the player and manager in a difficult spot. The article said there was something in the contract the club “weren’t happy with” but the club had agreed to have it placed in there, no doubt to get a Miller to sign it and Miller will have thought he’d be rewarded for good performances with another year and a bit of security in his early 30’s. I think this was very bad of the club at the time.
  19. Miller himself confirmed it. https://sheffwed.vitalfootball.co.uk/miller-frustrated-with-owls-contract/
  20. I know we did it to Tommy Miller. If he hit an amount of games we had to give him another year on his deal so we stopped playing him until he agreed to waive that clause in his contract.
  21. Agreed, I think it’s the club who have got fed up of waiting around for him to decide what he wants to do.
