    I'd like to claim all royalties for this chant. Over 2 years ago, I came up with it for Hooper. My genius was ignored.

    This is why I don't understand the absurd survey the club put out before season tickets went on sale. The club would have known back in February we were close to FFP. Chansiri pretty much said in his end of season statement that we will be playing more youth players. Jos said the same at Owls In The Park. It's pretty obvious no players will be coming in. Thats why towards the end of the season we gave the young lads a go. That was clearly DC's decision to get fans excited about the young players at the club. Not saying it's a bad thing, but to me giving Kirby, Baker etc runs out was a way of deflecting attention away from the fact we can't sign players. Again giving youth a chance is not a bad thing. But it makes a mockery of that survey which suggested promoting academy players to the first team was a bad thing.

    I told everyone on here the other day we are effectively under an embargo. But got negged to high heaven. The sale of Rhodes has kept our heads above water for a bit.

    That survey

    "Build on the current level of investment" To the vast majority that means sign players to build on the investment DC has already put in. That's how everyone at the time read it. If he wasnt going to build on investment and sell players, he should have said: 'Keep prices high and build on the investment in a couple of seasons time when the wage bill is reduced and FFP concerns are eased' That's the club being clear and transparent with their fanbase.
  6. I was told we were going to be hit with an embargo. Got a lot less for Rhodes than we wanted because we were desperate to sell and balance books. Don't know if that loan has eased our concerns however. Highly doubt we'll see anyone through the door. Going to offer Palmer a new deal as he's not wanting much in wages and Jos will work with him to try and make him first choice RB. Winnall will be next out if anyone is willing to take an injured player. Nobody wants our deadwood so we'll have to let their contracts wind down, and hope by some miracle Abdi, Jones etc can rediscover what they once had. Another season of mid-table in my opinion whilst we let the deadwood on big wages wind down their contracts. Frustratingly our key players will go down in value the older they get. Personally if I was Chansiri I'd take the risk and sell the likes of Bannan and Westwood and let the rebuild start now, they'll walk away for nothing next summer.

    That survey

    Right, so keep prices high and build on the investment. Prices are still high, which is fair enough as fans voted for it. However, we also voted to build on the investment. Are we going to do that this summer? I would be very surprised if anyone comes in. Plus we've promoted a number of youth players to the first team (not saying thats a bad thing). So I'm right. The survey result is not being followed in the way fans voted. Personally, I'm not bothered if we sign anyone or not because I still don't trust those in charge to spend it wisely. However, I don't agree with the lack of transparency from the club and passive aggressive surveys.

    That survey

    Why couldn't the chairman be clear and transparent with us then? Most people at the time believed this still meant we'd be investing in the playing squad. I saw that as making new additions. For me we are still very short in a few areas for a promotion push. If promotion is the aim, we've not invested adequately to get there since January 2017 for me.

    That survey

    So, it looks very highly unlikely we'll be spending any money this transfer window. We are on the brink of FFP and have sold our best right back and most expensive player in an attempt to balance the books. Winnall looks likely to be next out. For me, that's all good business. Hopefully they won't come back to haunt us (although you just know Rhodes will turn into a goal scoring machine again at Norwich, you just know). My gripe is the survey which was distributed to fans earlier this year which asked the question which went something along the lines of- 'Do you want ticket prices to stay high to keep us investing heavily into the playing squad in order to reach the Premier League' The majority voted in favour of that question. That seems to be a straight lie from the club. I don't mean to be negative when we really need to get behind the players, but for me that question was out of order at the time. And it's even worse now because the promise has not been kept. It seems to me it was a veiled intimidation tactic to keep prices high when the intention was to never invest in the squad. Because the club knew that we are in a financially tricky way. The club has done a lot of good since sacking Carlos, but this shouldn't just be brushed under the carpet. After all, Chansiri calls us a family and that was a complete breach of honesty and trust in my opinion.
  10. Embargo looming. Hold tight. Rhodes needs to go sharp.

    Possible player exit?

    Don't know what to make of that. I don't rate Hunt really but he's better than Palmer. Must have a replacement lined up?

    George Hirst reveals new shirt

    If that's the case he would have gone anyway. Brooks, Maguire, Walker didn't stay at United for too long. The only shame is we don't get a good fee for him. Oh well, I'm sure we've learnt from it.

    Some of the comments are over the top. He's nothing to do with us anymore and now he's gone none of us should care. Move on and focus on Wednesday.
