  1. Strict conditions though. One in, one out or something like that. Cap on the weekly wage or total value of deal. I’m sure it’s soenthing like 10k a week.
  2. The fact we are not challenging for anything this season pretty much puts to bed the chance of attracting any top loan players. We will probably see more benefit in the summer when the clear out begins.
  3. To be fair to the OP, I heard that this was one of a long list of things that DC was looking at to try and solve the P&S problem. This was around the time of the first fans forum this season. Not sure £30m is an accurate valuation, and as far as I know it wasn’t pursued. Unless the idea is being revisited.
  4. Rhodes going out on loan with 75% of wages paid plus a loan fee. Abdi being actively touted around Europe and Palmer available also, along with a few others. But not inviting bids for FF, this is what I heard yesterday. Not exactly ground breaking news but there it is anyway.
  5. Don’t know why people are assuming Rowett will take him to Stoke. He didn’t exactly favour him at Derby. Left him out more than he played him.
  6. This has been done to death to be honest, but do you think the rest of the league may have wised up to how we play after the first season? There was a notable change in our tempo and style because the majority of teams changed THEIR tempo and style to combat us. Anyone with half a brain saw how teams were coming to Hillsborough not to play to our strengths and openly attack us, but look to press, stifle and frustrate us. Now you could maybe point the finger and say he didn’t have a plan B to get around that, but to imply he just woke up one morning and thought “hang on, I might just swap this successful attractive style of play for something a bit slower and more turgid” is ridiculous.
  7. Just because something doesn’t fit your agenda doesn’t mean it’s rubbish mate. Open your eyes for God’s sake. The Carlos era had ran its course yes, but most people don’t know the half of what he had to put up with.
  8. Same here. His first season here will live long in the memory, playing brilliant football, the place was buzzing and everyone was together as one. Fair enough it ran its course as most managers do. But the abuse I have read directed towards him or about him on here and twitter is laughable and ridiculous. Not to mention the complete cluelessness and things he gets the blame for. Carlos put up with a hell of a lot when he was here, a hell of a lot. Maybe one day he will tell he full story about his time here, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
  9. It’s the earliest I’ve ever left a game, I was just so angry and frustrated that it wouldn’t have been good for my health if I went back to my seat. So I decided to get an extra pint and left when I’d supped it. Much better for my health. P.S If someone offered to finish the season tomorrow I’d snap their hand off.
