Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Also, the fact it can be dismissed so easily as a drop in the ocean is a pretty damning indictment of football. Especially as it could so easily be about half that.

Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

Lets see what happens hey but can we a) not worry about things until something concrete happens and b) not start downgrading how well Gomes has done at the first rumour suggesting another club may be interested. Gomes has done very well to turn us around... but from outside looking in I don't think...

Re: Value the Squad

Wasn't he rumoured to be going to Wigan for £500k after a disastrous last season having been binned from the first team?

£200k now. LMFAO.

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Loader is clearly work in progress, but this guy has scored goals at every level he's played in so far, including on the International scene. Technically that's not true. He's made 21 Championship appearances and scored 1 goal. He's scored goal s at every level except Championship, which really is ...

Re: Ex Players

Heh. Of course, just because he retired doesn't mean he didn't get some sort of pay out of his last year of contract anyway, assuming he did retire early after all.

Re: Ex Players

There's no doubt we wasted money looking at it now. But at the time, they were three good players who plenty of Championship teams would have bought. Yann had just scored 20 goals or so, and Joey and McShane were instrumental to us coming 3rd. At the time, myself and I'm sure a lot of people though...

Re: Ex Players

El Diablo
URZZZZ Interesting article on Drenthe. It’s a shame because he had quality, and he always seemed to work hard when he played for us, there was just something not right about him


He was a show pony.

This. A massively overpaid show pony who acted like a teen.

Re: Value the Squad

Think all 3 are about the same. I’d agree Baldock would be on the most wage so would rather he leave, but doubt anyone will take I’m a Bod fan but last season’s injuries are certainly a concern. As were Baldock’s esp in light of an injury prone history At a push I’d say I’d keep in this order: Bod ...

Re: Ex Players

wonder how much money we lost on the year extensions for McShane, Joey and Yann. 3 players that no other club would have likely taken off our hands at the end of last season anyway. And we managed I think 5 games out of the 3 of them this season. 1.5 mill? 2? There's no doubt we wasted money lookin...

Re: Value the Squad

If you had a choice Hound, would you rather keep Baldock or McNulty? What about Bod or McNulty? Both likely to be on higher wages. Both of similar or higher value? Agree McNulty doesn't seem in plans and may be easier to shift, but given the age, wage and injuries of the other two I think I'd favour...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Agree £2m is stupid low. I'd be shooting £5m - £10m plus Vic's instalments.

The English youth International multiplier seems to have been forgotten by some.

But I don't buy the £10m - £20m upfront argument either.

Re: Rival Watch

He's relatively young for a manager - he doesn't need to go money hunting at that age Hard to see your reasoning there. The start of a career is exactly when you need to chase the money because odds are it will be a short career and you won't get many chances to earn. There will be a lot of unemplo...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I think the comment related to Obita making a full recovery which would mean we had four proven Championship quality full backs plus three with first team appearances who all show various degrees of significant promise. As I said, not up to the standard of Murty and Shorey or Griffin and Harte, but ...

Re: Value the Squad

So an established international right back is worth nothing but a right back with 1 minute's first team experience is worth £1m+? If you read what I put at the bottom, I said I’d like to renegotiate Gunters contract. Failing that, yes, Gunter is being paid £1.25 million a year (I’d guess), the yout...
