Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Would you swop loader for Martinez with arsenal ? Yes. Three times over. If there was a couple of million on top to cover Martinez wages for the next couple of years and a sell on clause yes. TBH it would not help us FFP wise but under these circumstances yes I would. I think also this maybe away o...

Spaculation Henri Lansbury

Heard through the grapevine, Henri Lansbury is being offered out from Villa on a 2 year loan and we maybe suitors. Apparently doesn't fit into plans at Villa and there are 2 or 3 ahead of him. If Villa get promoted his wages increase to nearly 60k a week due to bonuses. he is being touted to clubs t...

Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

As a sideways linked matter did we ever replace the director of football when Nani went. Was wondering what Nicky Hammond was up to these days. Hammond and Howe always seemed to (at least from the outside) run a steady continuous ship. Through our best years they were always there behind the scenes ...

Re: Value the Squad

Have just re-read the O.P. and it has led to some mildly interesting discussion. I think the views of Pete on values are in many instances way off beam. I think he has failed to take into account that our squad consists of players just above Div 1 level and that is how they and our club is perceive...

Re: Dare to dream?

According to recent media reports, Arsenal seem to be hell bent on signing a new keeper in the Summer to replace Petr Cech (Valencia's Norberto Murarawill and Dynamo Dresden’s Markus Schubert) This all suggests that Martinez may well be third choice (at best) at the Emirates next season. Could we p...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

If 15 million is the price being thrown around. Though I like the kid we can keep rinhomota, buy Oliveira, and have a try at signing Martinez and Baker. (Or 2 players similar and a cb) At the end of the day loader single handedly will not push us up the table but using the money on 3 signings like t...

Re: We are interested in Hiram Boetang

This is a big step up as he has never really played at this level. Low wages and low risk. Could be great could be terrible but a squad player at best

Re: BFT(final)G

It cant be a coincidence how many youngsters we have blooded since Joses arrival this is obviously where we are likely to be getting most of our second team from next year. to be honest if we had a seasoned player and then a good academy product as second choice I would be happy with that. so.....

Re: Speculation - Players From The Relegated Trio

yes was Ilori about 3.75m I believe. Moore was between 1 and 1.5m from the reports I think Gunter adn Mariappa were both rumored to be around £3m between those? About £2m each I think. But some of that may have been dependent on us staying up, which we didn't do. I know there are many who don't lik...

Re: Speculation - Players From The Relegated Trio

Whilst not saying you can’t get good players from relegated sides (Yiadom), they’re relegated for a reason and more often than not it’s because the players aren’t good enough. I’d quite like it if shipped a bit higher. Yeh thats worked well for us in the past - Aluko, Pog etc. Struggling to think w...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Good to hear Jose has turned Novakovich’s loan club down regarding another loan and said the striker is not for sale. Interesting summer ahead for our younger players! If Oliveira does come in as well then I think we’ll almost certainly see the back of Baldock and Jon Dadi. ...and McNulty . If it w...
