Of course.

 

I was just under the assumption that he turned down a deal here for better things. Stoke is a sideways move....but I assume he had a fair idea about our points deduction and jumped on that assumption.

 

Id have been much less bitter if he’d ended up back in Scotland with Celtic or even with a bigger championship club.

 

Stoke will do well this season if they can keep him fit and keep Fox playing with confidence.

All about the money, never been to Glasgow, but Stoke is a shithole and a bang average mid table team. 

 

Each to their own, but if someone offered me the opportunity in the twilight of my career to win (almost guaranteed) trophies, I'd take it, especially after trousering £30k pw (£6.2m) over the last 4 years alone.

They offered better wages than Celtic.

 

That's what £78 million in parachute payments over the last 2 seasons allows you to do.

If he signs for Stoke will not have to move house or change family things.

Makes a difference 

He will have to learn the language though.

Fletcher off to Stoke.

 

Thats annoyed me a fair bit.

 

I'm a massive fan of Fletcher but he's 33 Years old, will be wanting a two year deal, on decent wages still, we can't justify that, it was the right time to part ways with him, take our recruitment in a different direction and use his wages more effectively...

Yes I think we’ll only be looking to bring 1 or 2 players max. in for central midfield now.  But I agree with you the forward line is a concern, the club will have a tough task bringing in players on a budget that will excite the fan base but we shall see what happens 

a concern is probably understated

Stoke are signing up all our players who left in the summer. I don’t really get it? It’s not like we were Brentford last season. Fox was best of a bad bunch second half of the season and Fletcher was injured most of it.

 

Its a bit like buying stuff from the “soon to be out of date” section in a supermarket, might be ok for that night’s tea, but you could end up with the shits!

Fletcher moving to Strike is good business on their part and I can see  Michael O’Neill getting the best out of him and Morgan Fox. 
 

All those saying he’s chasing the money. tell me honestly you wouldn’t do the same in his position? It’s the rules and laws that need changing on salaries in order to bring the game back in linen but whilst you’re there to make the best living you do it in the meantime.

Been our problem over recent years, some players prioritising the individual over the team.

For me there is a few strikers that have moved to premiership teams and either not got the chance or make the grade. Next season we need a consistent goal scorer as we are going to need to scrap for a lot of points while keeping it very tight at the back.

 

An experience Keeper is a must someone like Darlow would be a great signing, though Marshall could also be available for free from Wigan (our new favourite buying club). Up front Nketiah, Obafemi, Connolly all good young players looking for regular game time that at Championship level could score goals and hopefully with the prospect of regular game time we might get them in.

 

Could we maybe get someone of the talent of Hudson Odoi after the big up he has had very little actual game time at Chelsea, might they allow him to join us for the season to get game time and give us an x factor in the championship. It might be a bit of a fetch but only made 11 starts in 35 appearances and is going to be pushed down the pecking order with Chelsea's likely arrivals.

 

We will probably stick with the unknown loans and older players but some quality youth that might spark others into life I just feel could work for us as long as we get them at the right price. 

Hudson-Odoi, yes I'm sure a player they turned down 2 bids in excess of £30m from Bayern Munich is highly likely to be loaned to a lower end championship team, ffs.

As soon as fans allowed back in grounds to watch,Fox will crumble with pressure from fans,and Fletcher will get 20-15mins sub role,miss many a sitter and get injured for 24 games......

 

Move on and good luck to em...
