Re: The Forest is Green!

I thought Tranmere were the Auld Enemy?

At least the "rivalry" with Grimsby almost goes back a decade.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a) sponsored by Lawrie Sanchez

The Enfield Royal71 Plymouth away will be good but hard. We can struggle there in that climate and humidity. They are a tough team to break down aswell.


Do Plymouth play at the Eden Project now?

Re: Barrow on the way ?

I like Barrow. Yes he is inconsistent and can go AWOL for games at a time but he had a knack if scoring crucial goals for us.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins

Understandable selection. Not sure Rafael speaks English so sensible to give him some time to get up to speed with calls etc. Hoping Puscas can engage beast mode off the bench against a tiring defence. He's also played through the summer so no need to throw him straight into the fray. Looks like Bar...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

Interestingly, though, after the friction of last season, there has been a very muted response to Derby's ruse from their rivals in the Championship. Might this be because Middlesbrough, Leeds and Preston are also sponsored by 32Red, while Birmingham, Blackburn, Bristol City, Charlton, Fulham, Hudd...

Re: Favourite signing of the summer

Either Muazga, Rafael or Puscas. Miazga because we needed another experienced head in the centre of defence and at the time he signed, it was massive for us. Rafael because it showed that although Gomes had maybe made a mistake in putting his faith in a 19 year old with zero experience, he was quick...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader to Wolves

less than 1 year on contract, reckon it would be top end Sessegnon about to go for 25 million in last year of contract. Higher profile so higher fee but to drop down to 5m? That's a lot. We are talking about the Ryan Sessegnon who is the same age as Loader but has 5 times as many first team appeara...

Re: The generic transfer thread

David Luiz to Arsenal is both brilliant and hilarious. It's a bit of a weird one. Doesn't reflect too well on Lampard does it? Didn't Luiz only sign a new deal quite recently? Guessing Lampard told him he won't be first choice and he got the hump. Luiz loves a deadline day move obviously. I dont bl...

Re: Any more out the door?

Depends who else wants him really, could push the price up Young English forwards have a big premium Tbh if it’s 2-3m it’s worth keeping hold and letting it go to a tribunal. I’d want 5 minimum If it went to a tribunal next summer, we'd get less than £2m and if he did well this season and there was...

Re: CONFIMRED - Puscas

If suggestions are correct, the total up front outlay on fees has been less than £3m and we've recouped and significant percentage of that in sales and sell on fees. Also I doubt the wages are as high as people imagine. Puscas is apparently on £18k a week which is similar to what McShane was on. Sam...

Re: Rumour - Puscas

You only have to look at his wiki page and scoring record to see he won't be costing anything like 10m :lol: There may be no transfer fee if he is no longer registered with a club. Four goals from eight games with Romania is pretty good. If he is a free agent, he can be signed after the deadline, r...

Re: Rumour - Ovie Ejaria

I think we're bringing in players of excellent quality but I do worry it's going the way of Steve Clarke's window where we brought in players not necessarily because we needed to but because we could. I'm beginning to wonder whether we need Puscas or Ejaria, unless of course, someone like Swift or B...

Re: Rumour - Puscas

So we are apparently getting him for an up front payment of £2m and on a wage that is only 75% of the division average.

If anything's tinpot, it's the people doing Birmingham's transfer negotiations.

Re: Where will we finish?

Steady now, let's not get ahead of ourselves. I'll still be happy if we go into the last 5 games not seriously looking over our shoulders and sweating on other results.

Let's try getting to 50 points first.
