There is no evidence anywhere I can see that we made a profit on him or that we received as much as £500K from Preston.

Can’t have happened then!

Thought it had been already been established that our chairman was naive about football matters and has been very badly advised over the last 3 years on how best to invest a lot of money in our club.

 

However we are tentatively optimistic that the appointment of Bruce and the probable responsibilities that he will have insisted on will change our approach.

 

There has been evidence to support this with the appointment of his own recruitment staff and deals like Iorfa and the Newcastle loans which were obviously driven by Bruce .

 

So I am looking towards the future rather than regurgitating the same old stuff about the last 3 years.

 

 

It's a fair point that January's dealings and the arrival of Bruce might mean change is in the offing - but if it's true that we're asking £7 million for Jordan Rhodes then we're still as naive as ever.

Last week I saw a TV program on Hampstead pond swimming. Its open all year ut in winter you dedicated soles who turn out all weathers and in summer it gets packed with fair weather swimmers. Regulars do not go as gets too crowded. It reminded me of Owlstalk as you seem to get quite a few posters who only appear for summer and some of winter regulars vanish for a few months. 

 

Not a rumour but in light of other posts thought worthy of a mention.

 

Gets coat and tin hat and vanishes for summer.

 But it’s paper talk 

Isn’t it the same rag that said pigs wanted FF when it’s obvious they wouldn’t touch him with a barge pole.

I prefer to wait and see what happens before slagging off the chairman

Norwich sold Maddison, built sensibly and got promoted. 

 

FF refuses to get on the bus, and we gave him a new contract and he’s now worth next to nothing. 

To be fair to both Chansiri and Forestieri, at the time of that incident he was 26 years old (so had his best years ahead) and was our best player coming off the back of the 2015/16 season. He genuinely looked like he'd be able to make the step up to the prem at that point. He also was probably right to feel aggrieved that we'd brought in some players (Fletcher, Jones, Abdi) that were on more money than him and they added less to the team (and in some cases nothing!). So we either had to sell him or give him the pay rise, and we chose pay rise.

 

In hindsight we'd have been better off selling him for the £10m+ we were offered but at the time that would have been a difficult thing to do as we were building for promotion. If we were to sell him now we'd get only a fraction of that, so the best hope now is that he can recapture his 2015/16 form. Showed vs Norwich that he still has it in the locker

Not exactly true, you need the quality to go with it. All those clubs you've listed had a lot of good quality players as well as being hardworking, if all you needed was 11 hard workers we could get promoted with a load of Semedos and Chris O'Gradys.

We got promoted with those players or have you forgotten.

Some on here stating we will make millions on his future potential and is premier league quality. If you see that you must be watching a different player to me. I think he has shown very little whilst here. Another Matias type poor effort living on supposed potential and was out injured for long periods. Thought we had our fill of those type of players as it has proved very costly in recent times.

Matias poor effort? Back end of this season he's worked his socks off. Not his fault about his injuries if that's what your talking about. Onomah would be a very good signing for anyone is this league in a permanent deal and they will make a fair bit of cash on him in 2/3 years

For years Wednesday fans demanded Rhodes comes in, whatever the cost. Now they want him gone and are angry we're asking what they think is too much even though it's less than what we paid

Wont be Bruce stewing that asking price though. Sales are always going to be signed off by DC and that’s the area the club still lets itself down on.

I agree. Its the fans fault we signed Rhodes and he hasn't scored for us.

Matias after new contract puts in shift shock horror. Re Athde Nuhiu style. Onomah will make us no money. If he is premier league quality why arent premier league clubs in for him. This guy has done little here dont get why some on here think he is suddenly going to improve. His career is going backwards or he would be staying at Spurs. As likely be in league 1 plying his trade as premier league in 3 years.
