    Loans for next season

    My predictions for next season's loans: At least one highly rated London based wonderkid who everyone raves about, and ends up not being very good. At least one player no one has ever heard of, who no one understands their signing, who doesn't play for the first third of the season but actually ends up being pretty decent. Nailed on.

    Over paid and under performing

    Which if true backs the OP's main point, being the imporatance of keeping the squad fresh and current. As a side question, do you tihnk FF is playing to his full ability, but is now simply not up to Championship standard?

    What the f*ck was that?

    That was meant to be the type of game the likes of Fletcher and Reach make the difference. Woeful. However we'd be losing these games under Jos/Carlos. You start building foundations from the back and work your way forward. Bruce is doing this. When the loans are up to speed, it will click in. Who knows maybe even Foresteri will treat us to another end of season cameo...

    Nando Number Ten

    Sorry, but I'm not really sure what meritted his original inclusion. FF's form is a place on the bench at best for me atm.
  5. MG Maestro...with sunroof.
  6. It's like when the contestents lose the final on Bullseye: "Look at what you could have won (signed)"
  7. Is that a luxury we can afford, given the wages of some of these fringe players?
  8. Why do we have these transfer rumour threads when we always have little to no transfer activity?!?

    Chairman’s statement

    1. Fool us for offering inflated contracts in the first place. 2. How much of this was down to lack of takers as opposed to the chairman’s refusal to sell? Or refusal to subside loan wages? You don’t turn down £2m offers for even reserve players, never mind youth team strikers when you’re heading towards embargo.

    Chairman’s statement

    There is a difference between even attempting to off load surplus players and a fire sale.

    Chairman’s statement

    Two questions: If you were the chairman of a club entering financial difficulty and a transfer embargo... and another team offered you £2m for an unproven youth striker who you don't think is worth their demanded £xk per week contract,.. Wouldn't you just sell him?! If you were the chairman of a club entering financial difficulty and a transfer embargo... and you have players on substantial contracts not getting game time,,, Wouldn't you sanction their sales or loans?! I'm sure there are reasons to say 'No' to both, but I'm struggling to think of any right now.

    Chairman’s statement

    Yes Cardiff weren’t as thrifty as many thought when it came to wages and sign ons for example. Yet it won’t be difficult to attain that you don’t need to break the bank to finish 13th, as this ridiculous statement from our esteemed Chairman claims.

    Oh don’t worry, I’m on it.

    Chairman’s statement

    Amazing isn't it? So what is DC saying? That according to their own sustainabilty rules, just to compete in the Championship..is not....(drum roll) financially viable? I can hear unclutched straws hitting the boardroom floor.

    Chairman’s statement

    Breaking sustainability rules isn't investing to maintain your championship status. Note that DC inherited a team and club that was already consolidated in the Championship, a team built on sound financial footing. A team which even after the splurge, supplied the main spine for the play off first XI (Westwood, Lees & Lee), all three of which were free signings. Achieved by a manager who enjoyed the net transfer spend of zero pounds, a manger under DC's own wisdom was dispensed with to bring in his own man, who then oversaw the rush to emulate the late Richardson era of irresponsible spending.. He shot at the moon, and missed...twice. So what was plan B? Sell all those players we could no longer keep hold of of course. Ah but wait, DC won't sell any players (apparently), even though their wages and transfer instalments would breach… yes..Sustainability rules! So there wasn't a plan B after all. I'm sorry, whilst appreciating his candour it doesn’t get round the fact that our current predicament is simply the culmination of his inept leadership of the club. It was promotion in two years or bust. DC is effectively on record saying this. Yet now apparently we had to waste all that cash just to stand still. Really? Because I’m looking at teams such as Brentford, and Huddersfield when they went up. I fail to see their signings of £8 million has been strikers and over 30 journeymen on wages over £40k a week. So here we are, club back up for sale, in financial difficulty and fighting relegation. Only this time with the added bonus of an inevitable transfer embargo which will make replenishing the team problematic to say the least. If you want an insight into our next preseason, google that Hull City squad picture with 5 players in it.
