Re: Financial Fair Play

I wonder if the spending of this window will become regular. I expect it may flatten. If you look at clubs like Man City and Liverpool, they spent shed loads building their squads but have been limited to 1 or 2 big incoming a year recently. I'm hopeful that this squad starts to gel nicely and next ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Puscas

I loved his interview. Great enthusiasm and spoke fluent English which I didn't know. Should make settling in much easier.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

paultheroyal Can see Morrison slipping in there.

Or second coming for Gunter lol

I understand why the club has tried to move him on (wages), but if Gunter is still here when the window closes he has to be an option

Re: Any more out the door?

If Wolves are interested and Loader isn’t going to sign another contract, then yes - may as well sell I don’t think he is quite ready for this level and doesn’t sound like he wants to hang around another season to find out if he is next year. Can certainly live without him now. Little bit disappoin...

Re: Any more out the door?

Wolves stepping up their interest for Loader apparently. I'm always loathed to lose good talent, but he has a year left on his contract and Olise looks a more exciting prospect at the moment. If we can squeeze £5m out of him, not ridiculous in today's market, I'd be tempted to accept.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Agree, though that predictions, even three days ago, were about "another team" We have a major upgrade up front, a classic target man, what looks like a very solid keeper (doesn't have to be stellar, just solid and reliable, with experience) We have a foil for Rhino, a player who may well...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Would anyone like to make a guess of where we are with FFP after the 'splurging' of the last couple of weeks? We’ve paid one transfer fee so far and that seems to have involved little or no real outlay. If Puscas joins that pushes it a bit, but hard to imagine we’ve gone from a self imposed embargo...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

How long until these guys blend into a squad? Ideally we'd have had them for pre-season. Don't be surprised if some are bit part until the first international break.

I'd expect yesterday's 3 signings to go straight in; allow Boye and Puscas a bit longer.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Courtney Friday reporting £18k weekly wage. Not obscene at all; certainly not a Gourlay contract. McShane, Meyler, Bod, Ilori, Bacuna and Kelly were probably on more, as will be Baldock, Gunter, McCleary and Popa. This makes me feel better about the deal.

*Forgot about Edwards

Re: Next Season's Squad.

If we can recoup most of last year's McNulty fee and get Gunter's wages off our books, surely that gives us a little more wiggle room to bring in midfielders and attacking options? I actually back those at the top of hierarchy to pull a few good signings out; probably people we're not guessing yet....

Re: Any more out the door?

Keep nova, loader, Olise, McIntyre around the team for experience. Others out on loan would be good. Nova has 1 year left on his deal, If he isn't playing, he isn't staying beyond that. His star is still high in the Netherlands, so we should sell if Puscas arrives as expected. The other 3 - Loader ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Think there are some big numbers being banded around, when the reality is that they won’t be anything like it. One report seems to state that Joao is an initial £800k deal plus lots and lots of add ons. Spread all that over 4 years and it is may be £1m per year plus wages. Rafael is a Free transfer...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

If Puscas can play the lone striker role, had Joao effectively gone from being an impact sub at Wednesday to being an impact sub here?

Re: Any more out the door?

I'm not sure with Nova. Most would put Loader ahead of him, and given he is younger, I don't see Nova getting a chance. Gomes has had pre-season to look at him and he didn't appear close to the team.

He may also have a bit of market value given his 2 years in the Netherlands.

Re: Are we screwed?

The other FFP consideration is that top Championship talent can fetch £20m+ these days. If Puscas destroys this league, or Olise develops as we hope, we could be in for a big windfall in a couple of years.

Re: Any more out the door?

I expect Gunter to go. With all the incomings, I'd feel comfortable if we shifted Nova and Baldock too. Neither will be near the team now. Possible? Likely?

Re: Are we screwed?

Right, time to say it. I'm really concerned by this Puscas rumour that looks true. Yesterday's business looked rational, but this just looks like tipping point. Rafael was a free and Pele was a loan, so they are sensible. The club may still be hoping to move on a couple of high earners, in particula...

Re: RUMOUR - Pele

A role we've so desperately needed to fill. I will reserve judgement; Forest were a mess last year so you can't read into his disappointing loan too much
