  1. Yes that’s what I thought aswell. I don’t like to say it but if you were Westwood or Hooper’s agent you’d probably be already negotiating deals/signing on fees with other clubs
  2. Are all the players who are out of contract in the summer free to speak to other clubs now? Or do they have to wait until their contract expires in June?
  3. I put £20 on a top half finish at 9-1 when Jos was sacked. I cashed out for £110 after Villa beat us
  4. Easy to forget now that he kept clean sheets against Arsenal and Newcastle in the league cup run in 2015. He looked a real prospect then... his career just hasn’t kicked on. I still think he can be the next number 1 for us after Westwood but at his age he should be playing first team football somewhere
  5. Both shocking signings those that tell you more about David Moyes and Carlos than FF’s value. And West Ham were a premier league club when they signed Hugill. If a premier league club was interested in FF then we’d get a decent fee for him. Which championship players of a similar age to FF have gone for big money? Ross McCormack to Villa is the only one I can think of and the championship clubs have had to rein in their spending since then with FFP.
  6. Yes you’re right, I should have said 3 or 4 years. And I think both May and Wiggins were sold before Chansiri came in? Either way, we’ve not recouped much through transfer fees in recent years
  7. What a record we have of getting fees in for players under Chansiri. Jack Hunt is the only player we’ve received a fee for in the last 5 years. I hope you’re right but I just don’t see any championship side spending most of their transfer budget on Forestieri based on what he’s delivered on the pitch the last two seasons. We’ll see what happens in the summer anyway. Big decision for Bruce what he does with Forestieri and also with Jordan Rhodes when he comes back to us
  8. Before the non-travelling to Norwich I’d have said he was worth about £10 million. Right now as an underperforming 29 year old on big wages I’d say we’d do well to get any fee for him. Wednesday never seem to sell players at the right time. Chris Brunt is still our record sale at £3 million
  9. Who do you genuinely think would pay 5 million for him? All the championship clubs are hamstrung with FFP and I don’t see any premier league clubs signing him. I’d just be glad to get his wages off the books now if he’s on the reported 25k a week. You could count the number of good games he’s had in the last two seasons on one hand
  10. If you look at our last five games and roughly what odds the bookies will have us to win each one: Leeds - 5/1 Norwich - 5/1 Bristol City - 7/4 Preston - 2/1 QPR - Evens Putting that in a 5 fold you’ll get odds of around 500-1. And even then it probably won’t be enough. But I’ll still be at Leeds on Saturday and I’m backing us at 5-1 against them
  11. Yeah look at the bottom half of the table and a lot of those teams (like Wigan, QPR, Birmingham, Blackburn and Brentford) hammered us under Jos. They’re the games that have cost us top 6, not one penalty miss
  12. We’ve too many strikers so at least a couple will leave in the summer. If we could offload Rhodes, Nuhiu and Winnall I’d offer new deals to Matias and Hooper. I’d rather see Hooper and Matias at the club next season than Rhodes and Nuhiu
  13. People get annoyed because you can’t say anything that might offend someone now. Watch just about any comedy or comedian from the 60s, 70s, 80s or even 90s and they wouldn’t be allowed today
  14. Hooper or Hector for me. Frustrating second half, when you miss chances against a team with good attacking players it can always happen. And the fans singing ‘Brucey give us a wave’ when we went 1-0 up, don’t sing that again so early in a game. I can just about have that song if we’re 3 up in the second half but not after 10 minutes
  15. We’re not finishing 6th anyway are we but this is a really daft question
  16. I take it you weren’t on the kop yesterday? The bars on the kop are a joke. I gave up trying to get a beer at half time yesterday, stood there for 10 minutes and the queue had barely moved
  17. Stoke is the biggest game of the season so far now. Lose there and it’s probably all over. If we win there, the Villa game then becomes massive. What a second half to the season it’s been. Has anyone posted what the league table would look like if it started from the day Jos went?
  18. Do they also have to stump up £39-£46 for a Villa ticket and £33-£39 for a Forest ticket to be allowed to go to Wembley? We’ve a big ground that we should be trying to fill. Views like yours just drive people away. Not everyone is a super fan like you
  19. We beat Bolton. Have you seen how many games they’ve lost this season? Happy with the win but it’s not one for a big stiffy yet for me
  20. If we get top 6 from that run of games it’d probably be the club’s best achievement since 1992. Saturday’s a must win. Derby are in no form and I’d say the other contenders for 6th are Bristol City, Forest and Villa and we’ve still to play them all at home
  21. He’s class. Seems to like it at Wednesday aswell but I think the only chance we have of keeping him next year is if we go up
  22. I’ll agree with you on Palmer and Fox. But Boyd is reportedly on around 30k a week so has to take the hammer for what he’s delivered on the pitch for us
  23. It’s a geniune question. If Boyd was on a lower wage and tickets were priced correctly at Wednesday he wouldn’t get the stick he does. The fact is for a highly paid player he doesn’t deliver so deservedly has to take some of the flak
  24. Are you happy that we charge the prices we do to fund Boyd’s wages?
  25. Where does he rank in the worst signings from the Carlos era? Abdi is the worst signing for me but he has some competition with Rhodes, Boyd, Jones, Matias and Urby
