Re: New Kits 2019/20

I never considered buying a Sky cycling top, it's all a bit too "All the gear, no idea" for my liking. I settled for one of these that fits perfectly fine and does the job for a quarter of the price and makes it perfectly clear I have no illusions about my ability. https://ae01.alicdn.com/...

Re: Value the Squad

To be honest, trying to put a value on any of the players is like pissing in the wind, particularly with as yet bet part academy players. I can understand why someone could value Gunter at nothing and Howe at £1m when you take into account wages, potential to improve etc, it's partly the cost benefi...

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+?

Re: New Kits 2019/20

<Authentic cynic's hat on> So basically for clubs with a fanbase big and gullible enough to think spending an extra £30 on a shirt makes them a more authentic fan.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I can still see Gunter as a starter in the Championship in the right team. He's an established international, the right side of 30 (just) and has had a relatively injury free career. As you say, he's a safe player. Wouldn't surprise me if he went back to Cardiff. McCleary is 32 and is coming off 18 ...

Re: New Kits 2019/20

Out of interest, how many other clubs sell an "Authentic" top and then also sell an alternative cheap knockoff? Don't get me wrong, I always figured that the manufacturers would provide a higher grade shirt to the actual playing squad compared to what is sold to the public (except maybe Pe...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I think the main gist of the argument is when we are having issues with FFP, should 2 of our higher paid players be retained because they are "experienced and dependable backups". I like Gunter and GMac but our top 6 or 7 earners should be key players when fit, not back ups. It's not about...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Business just doesn't work like that. Has any big hitter in any industry gone round philanthropically throwing money at it's smaller competitors to stop them going to the wall because they can afford to? They could do it through a more even distribution of TV money but they would rather be allowed t...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

I don't believe would be offered more than £5m up front for Loader and there are much better ways of alleviating FFP pressure than selling him.

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Everyone knows we're struggling with FFP so I can't see him going for more than £5m. It's precisely what we did to clubs like Cambridge and Cork when they needed to money. Jadon Sancho cost Dortmund £8m, there's no way Loader is worth that, let alone double but IF Wolves offered £15m, I'd a) bite th...

Like Leeds didn't do the same thing with Elland Rd 15 odd years ago to dodge the administrators and screw creditors.

How many goldfish can you buy with £40m?

Re: Top teams over the last 50 years

Winston Biscuit No they hadn't. You sound like you only starting watching football in the past 8 years

7th surprised me a little, but then looking at who are below them in that table, fair enough.


He's been slowly walked through this one before. He's the footballing equivalent of an anti vaxxer.

But those 8 games over 5 years are talked about in hushed, reverential tones by scholars of the game in places as far and wide as Stroud and Birkenhead.

Re: Rumour - Florian Jozefzoon

Is that Gravenberch or Van den Berg? Either way, it would take pursuasive powers of Hammondesque proportions to get them to agree to swap involving 2 players who have just been released.
