Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

Edit: add in how well he worked all of the loanees and U23’s into a failing team and like I say, he’s the complete package. That was good fortune. Let's see how he does at the beginning of next season. Particularly if the next crop of loanees (i.e. Steve Clarke era) don't work out so well. I know i...

Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

It’s not just his points per game that will have attracted interest. Other clubs will be attracted to his playing style and the energy he brings to a club and their players. Personally, I think he has enough about him to go on a be PL manager, or at the very least a top 6 Champ manager. Would be gut...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Simon's Church and would they really want to spend £8m+ on someone for their u23s?


Brighton spent £7m in Jan on Argentinos Juniors midfielder Alexis Mac Allister (20y/o) ... and loaned him straight back to Argentinos Juniors, so it's not unheard of for Prem clubs/money to do so.

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

If true, the best scenario would be for Wolves pay decent money and then loan him back so he can develop some more with us. Maybe this is part of finding the solutions to meet FFP that José keeps referring to. Decent upfront money, with an additional fee based on his performance with us next season...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Interesting debate and I’m sure we’ll debate the outcome of both players once we know for sure. A lot of posters referring to the “money they’re on”. Do we know how much that is/would be, has it been published anywhere, or do we just feel that their wage, no matter how much no longer warrants their ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I think it’s down to both players to decide as both are still under contract. Gmac’s is 32 in a few days and Gunter turns 30 this July. Do they look for one last move this summer, or do they stay and contribute both on and off the pitch and then leave on a free in 12 months. Or does the club recogni...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Can’t see the club writing £1m off for a striker who scored 28 in 51 in league 2, and 7 in 15 in the Scottish prem and letting him go for free. I know both leagues are shite, but find me a goal scorer at his leve in this transfer window with that goal scoring record and I’ll humbly agree with you. ...

Hoping that the main starters + bench will be kept for next season excluding the 4 loans, here’s my take on where I think we are and the players we might be looking to work with, move on and the recruitment needed. OOC Players Anssi Jaakkola - released John O'Shea - released Danzell Gravenberch - r...

He was very much part of the matchday experience especially at Elm Park where everything and everyone seemed so much closer.

Re: McShane leaves

This won’t be a popular view but good riddance. McShane has periodically annoyed me over the years. From the very first time I saw him carelessly lunge into a challenge against Ipswich at home, to a colossal lack of effort at Preston away, him and Gunter passing the ball to each other 20 times in o...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Don't disagree, but it doesn't really answer the question. :) If we managed to drastically trim the squad and wages whilst retaining good young talent I'd absolutely take it if there was promise of sustainable reinvestment and rebuilding to bounce back. When Rotherham are your main threat to Champi...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

That disappoints me. I wasn’t the biggest fan of cooper but in today’s climate, he’s surely worth more than 500k, especially considering he bought that waster Ilori for four million. Don’t really keep too much up to date with the finance side of things but it feels like we snatched at any offer for...
