  1. Yeah I’d imagine we are playing the hard to get game which is good to see. People need to pay us decent wedge if they want our players not like the old days
  2. Well Sergiu Bus struggled in the championship (tho we signed him from a Bulgarian team), let’s hope this guy has more luck in league 1. I wonder if this what’s known as a Paxo signing..
  3. Fair enough, I’m not fully up to speed with Tshimanga - point is I’d like us to change our transfer philosophy and be a club that takes a chance on finding the next Vardy, Watkins, Wilson, Toney, Twine. Rather than repeat the same thing of trying to sign an established player in his mid to late twenties, as that’s why we are in this position in my opinion. With very little incomings on player sales we will continue to struggle
  4. Fair point, though Windass didn’t really contribute to us finishing in the playoffs. So if we could swap his place in the squad with a more effective striker it would be a good move. Someone like Tshimanga at chesterfield has the potential to be the next Vardy/Wright striker from being prolific in non leagues to the top leagues. Hopefully we can snap up someone with potential like that
  5. Yeah I think anything north of £500k and we let him go and invest that money into younger players. E.g. that striker at Chesterfield or midfielder at Wimbledon or defender at Gillingham etc.
  6. It’s awful what people send on social media and that’s one reason I’m not on it. Wasn’t Att aged 13 in 2017? I forget how old he is now. Wonder what age Chansiri will pass the club to his son to run as mentioned previously.
  7. Phew, now we just need Madrid to smash the scousers
  8. Probably find Storey gets a chance at Preston or loaned to a lower end championship team. Someone like Rotherham might fancy it. I expect the links to Tucker are as a storey replacement. so maybe Tucker Dean/Flint Gibson With Iorfa, Palmer and Brennan as extra options
  9. In our office it’s when the first trump has been smelt, so usually 8.30am . Lads bants.
  10. Absolutely, we all love football but wages are an obscenity. Some say “but their careers are over by 35 so have to make sure their families are set for life”. Really? Lots of people will only earn in their lifetime of working what Mbappe earns in one week. Then footballers also go into be well paid pundits, coaches, reality tv stars. It’s greed, pure and simple. Footballers can still live very comfortably for life and get paid a fraction of what they are on these days. Whilst the people they are meant to be performing for are having to foot the bill. A salary cap needs to be brought in this country, and any footballer who thinks it’s “against their rights” can go and play in front of empty stadiums in Dubai.
  11. Massive respect - but I think you’re wrong. They aren’t going to say, “Dean, Gibson and Storey have returned to their parent clubs but we’d like to sign them permanently”
  12. Absolutely. If we can get £1-2m for Windass then it gets you decent player(s) in league 1. Ideally we need to be finding the next Twine, Callum Wilson, Watkins or Toney - players who started to climb the ladder in the lower leagues. Though I know some will say that we can’t afford to take the risk and need to sign proven players when spending cash, I think that’s where our transfer strategy has gone wrong.
  13. I agree about Wilson. I often look at some teams line ups who are successful in these lower leagues and think “who are these players?” And then they beat us. It’s probably time that we join ranks and replace the well known ageing players like Luongo, Hunt and Windass for the likes of Wiredu, Wilson and McGirdy. We need to put together a team that will win matches in league 1, not have too many players that were good in the championship a few years ago etc.
  14. Think it’s better for us if Sunderland are promoted.
  15. Was being watched by Forest scouts and other championship clubs. He has operated as an anchor behind a two-man midfield this season, whilst he’s also operated as a more conventional central midfielder. Might be a good replacement for Luongo that we seem to be looking for
  16. Can’t see Newcastle basing their new era on one game at Burnley, their plans will be made already. Plus if you were Newcastle, would you prefer to have Leeds or Burnley in the league with you next season? One is a big club with potential pulling power, the other is a town called Burnley.
  17. Yeah Brentford are quite relentless in style of play with their forward line and Eriksen now. Will be an end to end game but can see Brentford scoring a couple at least. Whereas Newcastle away to Burnley, not sure they’ll be that bothered to turn up
  18. Sudden injection of cash from rich investors.. or we got some dates wrong again. Could go either way this, suspense
  19. yes you’ve got a point - if you have a criminal mindset like that then when you lose your cool you do illegal things like assaulting people. Should stand up in court
  20. It would slightly scupper the Gregory & Vardy strike partnership planned for next season
  21. Happy for Moore to stay but l wouldn’t be gutted if he went. The squad needs a rebuild now anyway. Liam Manning should be top of the list if we needed a new manager
  22. Liverpool have to go to saints next, they could easily win that by 5 goals. I’ve been at saints for the 0-9 Leicester and the 0-6 Chelsea game this season, sometimes the saints just don’t bother trying and that could easily happen on Tuesday .
