  1. I do think a couple will be announced... clearly some work going in already and the players will want to get their contracts sorted nice and early ahead of their holidays and pre-season. Although it does depend if they want to haggle and arse about up to deadline day for a few extra quid.
  2. Would a team of Messi’s beat a team of Crouch’s? Yes. Yes they would.
  3. When does the Championship summer transfer window 2019 open and close? Window opens: 00:01am on Thursday 16th May. Championship transfer deadline: 5:00pm on Thursday 8th August ......Question is... when will we see any signings?
  4. Im relatively high up in a company that operates across the world. I have literally no idea what any of ‘em earn. Also relatively speaking it could be said I’m not that high up in said company. Hope that helps.
  5. So we had: Lees Thorniley Van Aken Anyone who who doesn’t understand this signing is nuts. All three of the current CB’s have questionable injury records and one of them isn’t proven. Hector is still in the planning but it’s all in for him so we had to find a cheaper option for a back up.
  6. A fit and reliable Hooper would be kept no doubt but he is a crock sadly. Did well on loan and scored lots of goals early doors. Mathias has potential but is so frustrating at times. Today was a typical performance from him. Offered pace and got in good positions up top but wasted chances, was anonymous in midfield and kept fouling the oppo. Pudil has been a very good player for us. Wish him well in the future. The rest did nowt in their careers here. Some good players in their time (Boyd, Jones). The other bloke I can’t even bring myself to name him. Literally robbed us.
  7. Fox has proved himself to be a steady left back this season. Nothing sparkling going forward but can defend well enough to be in the squad.
  8. Would I rather be a Utd fan right now over an Owls fan? It’s a tough one. I like to smell ok so probably not but I’m sure a lot of neutrals will be swayed which is sad. However next season will come and go and who knows we might end up in the PL with them or even swapping places (please God). And this is the point. In the long term I do think we will be stronger once more. Our financial clout outside EFL FFP should allow us to develop into a proper PL club whilst the other lot will be relying on work ethic and Billy Blunt. We are bigger, better, older. As a club, we ARE better. For next season, I look forward to regular victories and success. It’ll be a good one - and then we take the city back. WAWAW
  9. Joao (I think) had a moment in injury time on the break down in the corner. How should have held it up, won a throw, wound down the time and allow the team to regroup. However he chose to try and break toward goal and got caught out, giving away possession. As I watched I knew what was coming next. Its easy to criticise and Joao probably thought it was better to go for goal but it was not the right thing to do.
  10. Have you ever looked at the evidence for the existence of Jesus? I mean, aside from the godly stuff...
  11. It’s really not that difficult. If you have a cash card it will most likely be contactless. Ask for a beer, tap your card on the reader, done. How anyone can have an issue with that is beyond me. Of all the things to moan about...
  12. I thought he was at least 10 years older and it appears many others thought the same!
  13. Happy 31st birthday Reda Johnson. Yes you heard, he is 31! What the funk happened there?!
  14. Back in the day you would have say 15 first team players that would play week in week out for a season. Back then an injury was a broken leg or head fell off. If that happened you would loan or buy on demand. I am convinced all this squad rotation and time on the sidelines softens players up and makes them susceptible to injury. The irony is we need a large squad to deal with transfer windows but that causes a problem with players not getting toughened up in matches. That and we we have a lot of older players. So in summary, do less squad rotation, get younger players in and get rid of the transfer window system.
