Hindsight spunking

Could have signed Vernacio for 1million but bought JVA for 3.5+. One can defend the other is looking to be shipped back to Holland for whatever we can get as just cant handle english football and its physicality. Bad decisions made with expensive repucutions.

Took 2 minutes when Jay Bothroyd made his debut and didnt chase his first pass just let it run out 3 yards in front of him. That summed up his entire loan period.

I'm sure he would.

 

But having a squad of 20 who all think they should be playing is bad for morale.

Depends on the players. I would want players who are determined and willing to work to force their way into the first team. Players who accept being second best aren't really what you need to get promoted.

 

If you have 30 players you would expect some to be bench warmers.

Tell you what’s pathetic, writing people off before they’ve even set foot through the door....crazy. Not every signing works think everybody acknowledges that but at least give the buggers the chance to fail.

 

If this was a young lad then fair comment, but cattermole is an experienced pro, with many attributes that we need to steer clear of. It's not writing hm off, it's making an informed opinion based on what has been on display for a number of seasons. If he was really so good, then Sunderland, a team who will definitely be chasing promotion would have kept him, instead they paid a large chunk of his wages to let him go.

My missus has faith in me but when I accidentally stick it in her arse she says I’ve done it wrong and doesn’t wait until the end of the season to do so

 

'accidentally' lol

The reason they are not linked is because we are not realistic over the prices. Its rumoured we want 8m for Joao. 7m for Rhodes and 14m for Forestieri.

 

And I would hazard a guess we would want about 25m for Reach.

 

Didn't we turn down a bid for David Jones only for him to never kick a ball for us again.

 

If we dont want to sell a player then fair enough put a ridiculous price tag on him. But if we do then make sure we accept the first reasonable bid that comes along. Otherwise all we are going to do is hoard players on stupid contracts then release them on a free.

 

We need to wake up a bit.....

Regardless of the rumoured fees we’re seeking, you don’t know until you come in for a player, and then you’d normally begin negotiations. We’ve had no bids

If you have players who think they should be playing all the time but don't, they sulk and when they are required then don't perform.

 

Players who know they aren't first choices with us but are happy to be in, generally will give it their all in every game they play, closing the ability gap IMO to supposed better but sulking players.

 

You need both in a team to succeed.

Not disputing that. His record is there for all to see. Doesn’t mean he can’t make mistakes. This is a forum. It’s for opinions. If I think signing cattermole would be a mistake I’m going to say it. That doesn’t mean I don’t trust Bruce. I just think if we sign him and end up pushing top 6 I suspect someone like cattermole will be a bit part player at best

 

Fair enough, eye brows would be raised if we did sign the likes of Cattermole. But I think the manager deserves us to reserve judgement at least until we see his side perform.  

 

I remember when Cardiff signed Mendez-Laing their fans were questioning why they were getting a league 1/2 journeyman in his mid twenties, yet he went on to help them get promotion. So sometimes you just have to wait and see what the player will bring to your side and manager

Until i or anyone else sees him with a fulham shirt/scarf held in his hands with an official "welcome to fulham" that tweet means diddly.

Meanwhile, while morale sinks, Bruce is sat on his posterior thinking I would love to sign this player but I can’t because he is too good, he would want to play games.

My opinion. Sunderland fans opinion.

 

Slow, cumbersome, turning circle of an oil tanker, no urgency

Setting aside the difference in age, that’s exactly what many on here used to say about Harry Maguire, and look how that turned out! Think I’ll trust Bruce to get it right on this one.

Dunno about Cattermole (perhaps it's accurate in his case) but your description is exactly the one that got pinned on Harry Maguire by many on here a few years ago.

 

:duntmatter:

Bang on - I should have carried on reading the thread, you were about 2 hours ahead of me with your response!

Or until you've seen him wearing Gucci loafers and holding a toy poodle with a ribbon tied to it's collar, you won't believe he's signed for Fulham.lol

Sounds like Pontus Jansson is on his way out of Leeds after a falling out 

 

Swap him for Forestieri
