  1. Teams coming down- Cardiff were fortunate to get up, they won't do well. Huddersfield are stronger than when they went up, and should do well, if they can get someone to score goals. Fulham? Who knows. If their players start playing as a team, they are probably far too good for the championship, if they continue to be a bunch of misfits, they'll struggle
  2. And some not so young players, like Hector. The top teams do seem to have players who are Championship or even Premier league ready while still teenagers - ours seem to need a few more years than that, if ever
  3. Bruce doesn’t seem to rate Winall - at least he does t start him, so will probably let him go for any decent offer.
  4. The club don’t say any more, so it’s possible that there was at least some discussions with some of these- “well, we can do a one year extension at a quarter of the wages” or similar, but they felt they could get much more as a free agent. for the high earners at least, there was no chance they would get anything like what they were on, so no surprises really.
  5. Most of the out of contract players to leave, though we might get one or two to stay on reduced wages. I doubt many other teams will match what we pay. Maybe one or two players who have value to be sold. 3 or 4 to come on loan and maybe buy someone if we can get them for 1-2 million. Which probably won’t be Hector. He could do a job at a lower half championship side. Maybe one of the promoted ones
  6. Not really, he picked both on several occasions, and when Boyd did come on as a second half sub, it wasn’t for Aarons
  7. Bruce seems to nearly always pick Boyd. He’ll try and keep him
  8. “May have been mistaken” and “unlikely to have been mistaken” are not even mutually exclusive. a statement such as “he may have been mistaken but this is unlikely” would cover it. it seems a little odd for the judge to basically say he thinks Forestieri did it, but based on standards required (presumably reasonable doubt if this was a criminal rather than civil case), had to find him not guilty.
  9. How much of a loss donthink the club would take? Would Wednesday be able to continue paying part of his wages? it might depend on how much of a cut he would be willing to take to get first team football.
  10. Wishful thinking probably. Norwich have done well this year, and Rhodes got a few goals, but I'd be amazed if they thought "lets spend a few million on him as a fourth or fifth choice forward" if they go up, or if he has made any other championship teams think "Rhodes still has it at this level, we should have him here"
  11. That’s good, at least they should be able to fulfill their schedile
  12. Isn’t today the deadline for paying their players, and if they don’t, players are free to leave?
  13. Jos started off so well, but it should have been obvious last season that there were problems with him - he quite clearly had favourites, and even though his promotion of youth players looked good at first, it was obvious pretty soon that he was going to far - virtually any player the club kept after 20 was getting a game as long as they had an even number of legs
  14. He's never going to get into the first team at Chelsea, so in theory,they should be open to letting him go, but they've held onto him for a few years, despite this being obvious, so who knows
