Biggest problem we have had throughout the whole 3 years is our wage bill and that won't get better till the summer. 

We pay almost what clubs do with parachute payments wage wise.

Our two biggest earners in Fletcher and Rhodes will still be with us for another year. We need to find a way to get them both of the wages bill, Fletcher is playing well but does he do enough for the amount he is paid. 

 

Maybe if someone made us an offer in the next week or so for Fletcher we should be accepting it though after 18 months of injuries he finally seems to be coming good.

Well lets face it, we looked at 200 last time and ended up with Van Aken.

 

Milsevicc only capped at every level for his country, only 26. Why would we want him. We have loads of players like that.

 

I mean theres erm.......

 

Oh yea Pudil who is reaching end of his contract and then theres erm........

 

 

You are right we dont need him at all.

I take it you’ve actually seen him play then if your getting this upset about potentially missing out on him?

Our FFP/P&S position is such that we unfortunately have to consider offers for any of our players in my opinion.

If this is true it tells us all we need to know really about possible recruitment this January.

 

Or that he’s actually not our primary target? Or not as good as we could eventually get.

 

I’ll reserve judgment until Feb 1st.

Absolutely, better off giving it the tea lady

With the state our clubs in I’d let the dinner lady go on a free and let fringe players like abdi and jones brew up

I hope you are right but we are two thirds of the way through with no movement in or, more crucially, out.

Why do i have to see him play, do i know what im looking for as a professional CB? Does my zero experience in scouting count? 

 

What is apparent to me though, hes free, we cant spend money, so those 2 kind of help each other, hes played international football, played at a good level, doesnt seem injured, we arent blessed with CB's, hector ie only on loan, that leaves Thorniley and Lees as VA will prob leave and doesnt seem good enough anyway, pudil will also leave. Can we sign Hector, who knows, doubt we arent the only ones interested.

 

I guess the only reason we arent is because we cant afford the wages either. His record seems decent to me and as we arent having him then he must be throw in some peoples eyes, that annoys me. Not as annoying as an inept Chairman though.

You know we wasted them how?

 

You must be well known in the championship game behind the scenes to know that surely? Otherwise you'd just be talking out your arse as you don't know what's going on? 

 

This will be good.

Could be a reason he's free though.

Besiktas bought him for 900k in 2015, don't seem to have played him.

He went to various clubs on loan until they let him go in 2017.

AIK got him on a free Feb 2018 and now they're letting him go.

Your explanation as to how you know categorically we've wasted 21 days.

 

Enlighten us, please.

And the only club showing any real interest are Wigan. And that's probably a trial.
