It will be interesting to see if he can cut it in the premiership. I'm personally not convinced.....

I think when they sign other players of the same or better quality that will help him at the new level. So strange how he ended up at city at 27 years old after playing scottish football etc.

Yes let's risk the clubs future again through reckless spending and ignoring FFP. 


QPR are such a great example to follow after all.

They are actually, because they've had no punishment whatsoever.

That's not true though is it? They were punished just refused to accept it and the league are still wondering what to do is how I understand it

Possibly, yes, but as it stands they've had no action against them at all.

I can't help but think we need a lot more than that to get promoted 

weve got the fire power, if used correctly. its the supply and defence we need to sure up. just my opinion.

Is DC's recruitment policy of signing experienced pro's who've had a taste of the big time making CC's job easier...

 

And is it a more difficult task to mould younger players into believing they are world beaters like Wagner and Jokanovic are doing at HTFC and FFC. 

 

Are we resurrecting careers or creating careers

the fire power is definitely there, do you think Jackson Irvine + a winger is going to do that? I suppose it depends who the winger is but that isn't Irvine's game is it?

Put Dunk and Knockaert into our 442 team last season and I feel we would have been closer to the top two.

 

Its asking a lot, but if we can get two top class players of a similar standard this summer then we aren't far off.  We haven't been for the past two seasons anyway

Hudds set to sign Mooy for 10 million. Would have loved him here but guess we can't compete with the lure of the Premiership, bloody Huddersfield. 

 

Still a slight risk for Huddersfield, paying ten million quid of their Sky wad plus the relevant high wages for a player who's not technically improving their promotion team given that he was part of it before, and has never played in the Prem but looked decent in the Championship. They know what they're getting though, and they can afford to take the chance now.

 

Good business for Man City - got a player last year for a small fee from their "sister club" in Australia who'll never become a first team regular for them, loaned him out to a lower league for a year and then sold him for £10m.

Add the other 9 players out of Brighton's first team and we'd have been promotedWTF:

Sounds like Leeds might be undoing a lot of good work from last season.
