    MASSIVE squad.

    Don't think the wages we are paying are an issue so far as a loan is concerned - surely if a player is surplus to requirements we are better off accepting a contribution to their wages for a season long loan rather than paying a players full wages to contribute nothing - totally accept that we should keep players who have a part (even if limited) to play rather than letting them go out on loan for a small contribution to their wages (as was intimated for Fletcher)

    I’m f*cking p*ssed off

    Couldn’t agree more - as an ‘exiled owl’ it is hard enough to ensure the kids are brought up the right way - especially in Leicester in the last 2/3 years but we are winning (unlike the team) - both lads are season ticket holders like me but it is difficult to compete with the pull of sky coverage and a local prem team Whilst I think they now get that it’s ‘ the Wednesday way ‘ it would be nice for the club to make it easier rather than harder ....with constant own goals

    After the performances today I think this would give a much more solid base to allow us to attack from and utilise our strengths

    There’s 3 10mill bids on the table..

    Please explain what I am missing - as a reduction in wages plus substantial cash sums being recouped would seem to balance the books on the basis of the published accounts If you are saying that the mess is more than just FFP then I can't disagree but if you are saying that it won't sort out FFP then I am clearly missing something

    Can't see how thatch be right - if we sell all 3 and generate c.£25m (with no transfer fee amortisation to take account of) plus the loss of wages for the remainder of their contracts this will all but clear the FFP position - we will of course get relegated but it will clearly make a difference to our FFP position - unless of course this is a red herring and the reason for the "soft embargo' is self imposed as we are in the middle of a takeover and Mr C is not prepared to invest further funds, which from the whispers seems to make more sense - time will tell !!

    It pains me to say this but....

    But we aren't Leeds - we have an ageing injury prone squad with a few quality players - and one game changer - Leeds had a team of young energetic players and it seems could absorb the loss of the players they sold - not sure we can at this stage

    Too late in the window to sell Fessi and re-invest - if we were going down this route we should have done it as soon as the window opened

    Couldn't agree more - the very least you would expect following a full pre-season - fit, organised, energised full of enthusiasm what a difference

    Interesting comments.

    Think we are beyond 'gently lubed' - I think 'properly rogered' fits the bill
