  1. Superb footballer. Crying out for a fully fit Hooper now. But we rarely saw that side of him when he was here. Too many injuries I’m afraid. Top player though.
  2. Don’t mind Winnall at all. Works hard and has been unlucky with injuries and selection since he’s been here. Pleased he scored last night.
  3. Maybe McGugan needs to look at himself though. Look at what’s happened to him since he left Wednesday. Clearly always been an issue with effort.
  4. Apart from last summer under Bruce, we have never been proactive in the transfer market. Why are people surprised?
  5. Said it all season we are very much over achieving. When you look at the players who start most weeks they are all free transfers or cheap deals. The irony is the money we have spent was wasted on players who are actually worse than those who cost nowt. It’s crazy.
  6. Fair enough. Like has been said how responsible he was for transfers. He hinted in an interview with the Star I think that he had a list and it was up to whoever above him to do the negotiations. Whether he ever got his top targets I don’t know. The fact he rarely played the likes of Rhodes, Abdi, McGugan etc suggests probably not. I don’t think they were ever his players. I liked the bloke he was a character. But he had a very short term approach, and his handling of the squad was poor and started to show in the third season. The amount of injuries were unprecedented. That wasn’t all coincidence for me.
  7. In that first season we also got a lot wrong. We got some right and found a way of playing. But we still made some pretty poor signings. And you could even argue the likes of Hooper and FF haven’t been value for money given time they spent out injured.
  8. If it’s true Westwood refuses to sit on the bench then that it is a poor example to set. But we don’t know this for sure, so wrong to speculate.
  9. To be fair its difficult. We do need quality up front and everyone is chasing strikers at the moment. I personally wouldn’t pay Wickham whatever he wants. Paying players whatever they want is partly why we are in trouble with the EFL in the first place. Signing Wickham won’t guarantee promotion, just like signing Rhodes didn’t guarantee it 3 years ago. If he is on a reported 30/40k a week, a bit daft to pay those wages for a player with his injury record.
  10. Yeah I meant Harris, Borner and Odubajo. Luongo came in on deadline day. There’s a trend that when we have to negotiate with another club things tend to get done last minute.
  11. I wonder if Bruce’s recruitment team are still with us? In the summer we seemed to have Harris, Odubajo, Borner all done and dusted pretty quickly. We just had to wait to announce them due to the embargo. That gave me encouragement of some forward planning and strategy. But this window it seems to have gone back to how it used to be. It was clear around September time that we needed to strengthen our striking options. Should have had at least one striker lined up ready for the start of January in my opinion. Said it before but Bruce was the best thing to happen to this club. I just had a real sense we were in capable hands. Don’t really feel that way anymore.
