Re: CONFIMRED - Leandro Bacuna

Swansea and Leeds fans couldn't wait to tell us how shit Barrow was, but everything we've seen from him has been very positive so far, therefore I'm not going to place too much reliance on the Villa fans' opinions. He's always looked a very tidy player to me. Not outstanding in any particular area, ...

Re: BFTG Gillingham

Having watched Clement at QPR it comes as no surprise to me that he does a better job in the middle.

Seems to be very good technically, plenty of nice touches and finds his man well, but doesn't have the pace or trickery to make an impact out wide.

Will make a good no. 10 one day I reckon.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queen's Park Rangers (a) not sponsored by opening day depression

Positives: JDB and Barrow look useful.

Negatives: Everything else.

Scary just how far off the pace we were.

Has anyone been able to ascertain whether you can use the same iFollow account home & abroad? I'm away for the first 2 games of the season. I want to sign up next week for the overseas version to see those games then use it back in the UK when I can't make away games and I'm out of range of BBC...

Re: Rumour - Modou Barrow

Interesting - felt we needed to add some pace to the team so nice to see that being addressed. Sketchy record, but there's obviously some potential and quality in there. If Jaap can work his magic then we'll have ourselves a bargain. If he can't then at least it's a relatively 'cheap' gamble that ha...

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

The transfer fees shouldn't make too much of an impact as this will just sit on the balance sheet and be amortised over the life of the contact. E.G. we sign Darlow for £5m on a 5 year contract, we'll be incurring a 'cost' for accounting purposes of only £1m (£5m over 5 years) per year. It's the wa...

Re: Rumour - David Button

Button was very good at Brentford for the previous 3 seasons before going to Fulham, is at a good age for a keeper, and has plenty of Championship experience. I don't understand the apparent universal outcry at this signing based on nothing but a few bad games for Fulham. It baffles me. To sign a r...

Won't hold my breath though.


The same Connor Ripley that has played a total of 2 games for Boro and is rated so highly by them that they're willing to ship him out so that they can spunk millions on Karl Darlow?

Right.

Re: RUMOUR - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

Good character, plenty of experience, has the quality to make an impact.

Lots of Wolves fans sorry to see him go.

May not have the best goalscoring record but to judge a player on goalscoring record alone is simplistic in the extreme.

Happy with this.

Were you one of those saying the same about Kermorgant? Nope I was happy with the Kermorgant signing as he has a proven record at this level Just had a look at the Kermorgant Signs thread... At best an underwhelming signing. I'd rather get Samuel blooded into the side. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Shut ...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Looks like we're missing out on this one to Wolves.

Unfortunate, but as he's a Jorge Mendes client we never really had a chance as long as they were interested.

Re: RUMOUR - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

Think people need to remember how woefully short in numbers we are up top atm. We may well still be in the market for a really 'top' striker', but we also need to add some depth and this guy sounds like he has all the attributes to be an excellent squad player. Wolves fans are also, mostly, very pos...

Suspect we wouldn't have announced this unless a new striker was fairly imminent.
