  1. The bigger picture is with wages though, while we are not paying fees upfront wages tend to be higher for free transfers. Fletcher, Bannan and Westwood are all high earners
  2. Anyone know what length of contract Bruce is on and realistically how much compensation we would be due?
  3. Clearly I was on the special brew that night and confused him with John Souttar
  4. Findlay had a decent game (Scotland vs Belgium), was played out of position, up against Hazard and still did well.
  5. We were too too heavy with strikers. I would have loved to have kept Hooper but the facts don’t lie when it comes to his availability. It’s a shame Winnall is being linked with a move away. He never really got started here and we will look back as an opportunity missed by him and the club.
  6. Actively Support Owls Heart of Midlothian Like Ross County (family in the highlands) Stirling Albion (lived there for 10 years) Dislike Leeds Man Utd Spurs Chelsea Arsenal Hibs (would be in the despise list but got a few friends who are hibbeeees) Despise Pigs Liverpool Celtic Rangers
  7. The players we bring in depend on the system Bruce wants to play. Take Lees for example, Leeds fans said he wasn’t good enough when they released him and he turned out to be a great free transfer. Sometimes for unknown reasons it doesn’t work out for a player at a particular club. Its why having a good back room team and manager in place is so important to spot potential and avoid bringing in the wrong sort of player for the team, like Rhodes. Great player, when you play a system that suits his play, but a complete passenger the rest of the time.
  8. £1 extra is for the return is standard across the whole rail network for an off peak ticket
  9. Crap league? Recent transfers out of the league for BIG money include John Mcginn Moussa Dembele Stuart Armstrong All of which would quite easily walk into our starting XI.
  10. Aberdeen finished 3 points above Rangers, Hibs finished 3 points behind Rangers, 2nd place was very very close this year. So Aberdeen and Hibs are as good as Rangers at the moment. Celtic only finished 9 points above Aberdeen, i’d Actually argue that this year has been more cooperative than the last 5 years in Scotland. Steve Clark has got Kilmarnock playing some great football, taken points left right and centre off the old form this year. Playing physical teams will be good preparation for us and teams the SPFL will provide a challenge.
  11. When Westwood initially signed for us he chose to come here so he could play and be the number one keeper. So I doubt he will move to a Premier Leagie team unless they can guarantee him this. If he does move it’ll be to a rival in the division.
  12. Actually Brentford are actually on record as doing the exact opposite. They closed their academy and concentrated their scouting on the Premier League academy's. They can't compete with Premier League clubs who have scouts at lower league English games and instead focus on picking up the best talent that are eventually released from Premier League academys when they don't make the cut.
  13. Wonder if the players are being over coached. Overthinking can lead to the simplest of things going wrong
  14. Clubs see us coming and ramp up the asking price because they know we have money. DC and CC will be trying to change that mentality so clubs are more realistic in terms of fees.
