  1. No. My understanding is he is represents the club at games and deals with gripes that are outside the manager's remit. I think he was v ill with covid which is why he left.
  2. Not saying we do. Just saying that the perception that he is some Dr Evil type calling the shots is complete rubbish.
  3. Kamberi was scouted and recommended by Paul Williams Paixao gets a bad rep. He is basically a player liaison for the chairman and the players really like him
  4. Three year contract incoming Good player, got a real chance
  5. From what i hear this should get done and not for 1yr ... the lad wants to stay and play for the first team, been here since he was 8
  6. I wonder if any manager in our history has ever finished fourth during a transfer embargo having taken over a squad that wasn't getting paid?
  7. I know what you mean mate but a) i do think he has learned some lessons albeit he might have not have! and b) in the case of the Easdales, one of them has literally been to prison for fraud. Burnley's new owners already skinting the club. There are total rip off merchants out there looking to rip clubs to pieces
  8. Academy is doing its job - in recent times we've produced Hirst, Shaw and now Cadamarteri plus some other highly rated kids coming through ... but what is the point if we can't be bothered to make them serious offers to stay?
  9. If he gets poached by a Prem team fine - i get that. BUT i am told that the lad has not even had an offer from Weds yet. If we don't even try to keep a talent like this then we might as well not bother with an academy at all. I'm serious. We should be banging his door down offering a route into the first team, proper career development etc. Just letting him go without even trying to keep him is PATHETIC
  10. It might not be as easy as simply 'giving him a contract'. He's 16 and a scholar - we can't sign him pro til he turns 17. Until then (unless there is a pre-contract agreement) he could easily be tempted away by a bigger club / Cat 1 academy ... fingers crossed he sees that he's in a good team with a manager that will give him a chance at first team level ...
  11. So i hear but never seen him play ...
  12. Hunt can play but he needs time and matches. I hope Wing goes back and Hunt returns for Jan so DM can assess if any improvement. If he's no further on then loan him out again ... i think he's worth persevering with. Any of youth team experts on here seen much of Rio Shipston in the U18s? I've heard good things about him, even suggested he could be overtaking the older kids in CM quite quickly ...
  13. I've asked two people who would know if wages weren't being paid and been told emphatically this is untrue and there are no money issues at all (as things stand - you never know what DC might do next i guess!)
  14. Golden elephant botherer? Is that type of comment OK on here then?
