  1. I'm so confused about this whole situation, on the one hand; Jos sees him day in, day out and should ultimately have the final and most informed say on who the best keeper is, but at the same time, everyone knows who the best keeper is, and it's not like its close. If it is true that Jos genuinely thinks that Westwood is the 3rd best then it begs the question, why didn’t he sell him? His wage must be very high and he could command a couple of mil in actual value. Very strange.
  2. Might be a bit more difficult to get the fans on side with this one, but fizz it I like it

    We miss Hooper & Lee immensely, just hope they're the same players when they come back, Hooper is the best finisher we have and has great link up play and god knows how much we've missed Lee's energy and hes probably good for 5+ goals in a fully fit season.
  4. Ah I did not know that, that is pretty shitty, do you have any sources for that 1.2m number (I'm not calling you a liar, just genuinely interested)
  5. I imagine he meant wages, even the people on here had figured out long before that, that we probably had to stop spending money at the rate we were unless we were to get promoted, I think the question was worded poorly and what he meant was "keep paying for the quality of players we've got and keep ticket prices high or sell a lot of our best players and replace them with lower earners or promoted youngsters" (in fact I think the question was ill advised and shouldn't have been asked at all as it could only ever lead to bad things to be honest, but there we go) I'd have to look it up as I could be misremembering but I'm sure when you're sponsoring your own stuff there are some sort of caps to stop exactly this sort of thing happening, so pretty much the only way to increase cash flow is either from selling or raising it from the fans.
  6. While you're probably correct about the self imposed embargo, the Chairman has always been pretty vocal about FFP in the past and has made no claims to be trying to sign players, so not sure where this statement is coming from to be honest.

    Tudgay if I remember correctly, did something to his toe I think
  8. Either, because I don’t judge people by the amount of melanin in their skin or because they were born at the other side of some arbitrary lines drew up on a map long before I was born. Now if the carriage full of white people were all skinheads with swastika tattoos then which one would you feel more comfortable in?
  9. That’s the past. It’s time for a fresh start, new manager, new system, new dynamic. Last season people (me included) were saying that now we’d got Fletcher, Hooper, Joao and Winnall that Nuhiu should never see a Wednesday shirt again, yet he proved us all wrong under Jos, don’t see why Liam can’t do the same
  10. What a strange statement... So you're saying if Liam Palmer has improved to a point where he's the best right back in the world he should be getting nowhere near the first 11 because of some preconceived notion you have of him?

    Joey's been getting all the love but just look at him
  12. Bournemouth broke FFP to go up, Brighton had been pumping in money for years to build a squad capable of pushing for promotion and Huddersfield... Well who knows, it just seemed like a perfect storm for them to go up, I know what you're getting at though.
  13. Yes of course I would, it doesn't make it fair though, there has to be a better way, I don't know what it is yet but maybe relegation clauses in contracts? or just automatic % salary drop when relegated? I don't have the answers but the system is a farce, weighted heavily in favour towards already mega rich clubs. The recent TV deals should've made parachute payments obsolete, its such a large sum of money, the clubs simply don't need parachutes, and if they do they're being massively mismanaged.
  14. Parachute payments are the real issue, it's just being rewarded for failure, if you've been relegated and you can no longer afford your players then unlucky, sell or figure it out.
