Re: How many players will we sign this summer?

John Smith
Hound Could really do with losing Moore from the wage bill couldnt we?

And prob Swift and Rafael as well, though Swift would leave a big hole in the side

Yes

Not sure. Relegation to League 1 would be a disaster for our finances and any cost savings must be considered against this risk.

Re: The generic transfer thread

Arsenal remain am illustrious club despite recent struggles. They have the resources to build and compete higher up if they make the right decisions. I would still see it as a step up to Leicester, who are realistically at their ceiling.

Re: George Puscas To Be Loaned Out

We can sign players if we want. Just not necessarily the ones we want. I *think* this is right - we are in a similar situation to Derby whereby we can bring in 6 month loans or players on a 1 year deal as long as we don't pay them over X. Decreases the pool of players we can or want to sign though....

Re: Rumour - Kyle Edwards

Yeah that pretty much. Explained it better than I could be arsed to do Can’t really go handing out 3 year deals to any u23 who looks ok in a 1st team game once or twice - or you get a Smith/East/Watson hanging around for 3 years Damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Re: Rumour - Kyle Edwards

Looking at historical losses and how out of control they are, it's a mix of mismanagement but also structural issues at this level. You can look at many transfer and contract decisions made on the likes of Moore, Swift, Puscas, Aluko, Bacuna, Baldock etc. But we're over £60m outside the FFP limits o...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Exclusive! According to my sources, kane to man city is a done deal. 160 mill with 400k a week contract. His motivation is wanting to win the PL and CL, and break shearers record. Spurs are able to afford players only because they're selling him!!!!! Being reported by the Sun. :lol: Not the most re...

Would be a very thin squad. Probably a good thing we're not starting tomorrow then.

Re: England - the future....

I've seen a few interviews from people justifying their actions at the weekend. They are always overloaded with "I" and "Me". "I had a great time and regret nothing". "England playing at home was too big an opportunity for me to miss out on". A complete lack o...

Re: England - the future....

Bellingham is already a massive player for Dortmund who has played in CL knockout games for them. Mount and Foden have been key players for very good sides. This bunch are light years ahead. Yep, couldn't agree more. Sure - the signs are promising - the overriding point really was that we shouldn’t...

Re: England - the future....

Comparisons with 2018 against Croatia are valid, but there's a difference. In 2018 nobody could see how we'd ever be close to competing with midfields of Croatia's quality; it looked like a weakness we'd never fix and in 2019 we were trying the likes of Harry Winks as a solution. That's not the cas...

Re: England - the future....

The thought of hosting a major tournament used to excite me but I'm not sure I want it after this weekend. At least overseas we can force the known hooligans and thugs to stay at home.

They are football fans in many cases. But it's a wider societal problem. Yes, but football seems to be the only sport where these wider societal problems surface so frequently and tarnishes our reputation. Why is it so much worse than in rugby and cricket, for example?

Re: Euro 2020

Grealish has responded to Roy Keane’s criticism of him not taking a pen last night. He said he put his name forward but Southgate stuck with the original plan. Saka looked overawed last night - leaving him as 5th on the list (established in training) was terrible management. It's a difficult line. ...

Re: Euro 2020

I think you can go through the England squad and the considerable majority have seen their reputations enhanced. Kalvin Philips agent has a busy few weeks ahead for him!! Oh for sure. Think he'd be better off at Leeds for another season but there is no way one of the big boys won't come in for him....
