    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    To have turned a reported 2 million pound bid and to continue paying his wages for a year whilst not allowing him to train or play, sheer madness!
  2. Norwich coming in hard for Ben Marshall, according to Nixon. As the competition is against Millwall they might well succeed. Good signing IMO and a pity we are short of funds. Will be interesting to see if there is any movement on the transfer front this week as the players return on the 25th.
  3. Probably the tie of the round and could well be televised. Would have preferred a home draw though.

    Rhoys Wiggins

    Got to feel sorry for the lad, even though we inexplicably took a 500k loss when selling him to a Premier League club that just as inexplicably wanted to sign him.
  5. HITC report, Max Clark, Hull City LB, refused a new contract. Similar situation to Clare, aged 22, so will go to tribunal if fee not agreed. Millwall and Forest linked. Has played 30 times at Championship level and did well. Should we be interested? Fits Jos' transfer profile, perfectly.
  6. TBH the Rhodes signing has done for us, though there has been a sickening amount of cash absolutely squandered on other signings as well. DC has gambled but not altogether wisely.
  7. Being ginger, he'd being sought to add a bit of spice to our midfield So you are saying that he would definitely add spice to our midfield, Guru.

    Butterfield returns to Derby.

    ….or an undertaker.

    Butterfield returns to Derby.

    I don't think the Derby fans would agree.
  10. Can't see this happening, nor do we need him IMO. Forest might have the cash from the Assombolonga sale last year but they had an embargo imposed on them not so long ago and might not be so willing to splash out 7 million. It all seems like Evans is talking up his man to get a healthy transfer budget for next year. Big gamble, let somebody else take it.

    Sean Clare

    It's about 22 degrees and an OP called Penguin announces Fake News, hmm!
  12. He made L1 team of the season, even though playing for a team fighting relegation. He is a creative midfield player. The downside is his height at 5'3". Worth considering IMO, especially if Clare goes as seems likely.

    Ben Hughes signs first pro deal

    I'd rather see youngsters being signed than being linked with some 'experienced' ex PL player on the way down and looking for one last big pay day. Not all the youngsters may go on to play for the first team but it will certainly be a spur to the rest to see opportunities becoming available within the club.

    #SWFC don't need to go mad.

    If Jos gets Hooper, Fletcher, Lee, Westwood and Abdi fit, it will be like having an extra five signings to add to the squad he has had to manage. TBH, I don't think we need to add much more than maybe two or three players. Winnall, clearly wants to go, so let him do so for a decent fee.

    TBH situations change and some might step up to the mark. After all how many of us would have given Pudil or Nuhiu a contract extension at Christmas? What it does do is to give the manager a fantastic chance to reshape the squad.
