    Hunt the 1st to go - more to follow

    So if Hunt's wages over the length of his remaining contract are say £1.5m and we sell him for £1.5m we have to pay him the amount of his remaining contract? This means we gain £1.5m and lose £1.5m. Why not just keep him? If this is correct there is no point in the sale unless he waives part or all of the sum and I'd suggest it renders the majority of player sales totally pointless from a financial point of view.

    This is hell.

    Not impressed with his attitude. Reading that made me spit my Ovaltine out and I was so angry I turned up the volume on my Now That's What I Call Punk Rock compilation LP to 3. I didn't know Pete Thomas was from Hillsborough. He is a great drummer.

    This is hell.

    I saw this thread title and my first thought was "it never gets better or worse but you get used to it after a spell cos heaven is hell in reverse" as you do. I was pleasantly surprised to see I may not be the only obsessed loon on the planet. I always think he got it wrong with one of his albums it would have been much better as sweetest little fella everybody knows dont know what to call him but hes mighty like The Wednesday Wednesday and Elvis Costello is a particularly potent combination. Not necessarily the best for retaining a slender grasp on sanity.

    Fernando Forestieri

    Tend to agree with you there. He takes the centre of defence up a level. I wouldn't underestimate the performances Pudil has been putting in either. Pudil and Lees have formed the base of the cake. However FF is not just the icing on the cake he is also the cream in the middle. This combined with Bannan's marzipan and Hooper's cherry on the top can get us promoted next season. I'm just worried Bake Off will come in with multimillion pound bids.

    Wednesday - V - Preston OMDT

    DC said Jos is more expensive than Carlos due to his record.
  10. He's obviously some kind of lightweight dilettante and is too scared to wear the proper gimp mask his girlfriend got him for Christmas.
  11. I'm not saying we should have used Butterfield or Jones. I am saying why would Chansiri allow Jos to overrule his alleged decision to freeze Clare out when he has not allowed him to use George Hirst. It doesn't make sense to take a tough stance then backtrack on it just because Wallace is out for the season when Butterfield and Jones are available. Although we know Butterfield is not worth his place in the side I'm not entirely sure that Chansiri would understand this enough to overturn his own decision to freeze Clare out and allow him to play for the first team again. It makes more sense to assume that he wasn't frozen out at all.
  12. Why wouldn't Butterfield or Jones be used in preference to Clare if he had been frozen out. It doesn't really make sense. Where did you hear what you know to convince you it wasn't a rumour?
  13. You are talking in the plural. I was under the impression that Clare has played for the first team since the RUMOURS of him being frozen out surfaced. I thought only George Hirst was banned from playing and that Sean Clare cannot play due to a season ending injury and would be in the squad otherwise.

    Who remembers this gifted player

    IIRC I think Bolton and Spurs offered us about 5m only a few months before we sold him to Chelsea for something like 2.5m as in the earlier post. I think Chelsea had him for less than a season then got 4m from Sunderland. Typical of us letting players go on the cheap.

    Barry Bannan in his best position?

    I've always thought that he is similar to Jack Wilshere in that they both mistakenly think they are deep lying playmakers and their managers have indulged them in this. I think both are at their most dangerous within 10 yards of the D, dribbling and playing one twos and defence splitting passes. Bannan does this so rarely but it tends to yield results. I particularly remember Rhodes' goal against Villa and I think the penalty appeal in the final few minutes v Bristol City. So long as he is banned from shooting he can play there. Whether or not we can accommodate him in that position on a regular basis remains to be seen but I think that is where he can be most effective and raise his game to another level.
