Re: Rumour - Baldock to Luton

I don’t see him demanding a great amount to be honest. He’s 31 and unlike when he signed him, his reputation has fallen off the cliff. The question is what is Luton’s wage structure like?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by things to come

Would like to see Olise in the left maybe to give a better balance. But you can’t really drop Ejaria after a game like that. Think Meite will have to wait for his chance. Olise was much better on the right, had more space and was a lot more effective. Ejaria can’t be dropped I agree, but I think he...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by things to come

I'm shocked you don't think Meite should start URRZZZ :lol: It’s not that, just would be wary of changing an XI that’s just picked up a very good away win Don’t think any player has the divine right to just walk back in, regardless of who they are Yeah I'm just mucking about. But seriously, it's on...

Re: Pedro Mendes

Looks like he’s set to join Almeria having flown to Spain on Saturday to finalise a move according to O jogo and A Bola Can’t find anything more recent than 3 days ago for those, which precedes the chronicles article so I’m not convinced. That was reported last night. They’ve now picked up on the R...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by things to come

Omar Richards looks up for it. Liam Moore much improved, Olise still looks very raw as expected. Aluko got stuck in for a 50-50 for the first time in a while, looked very tidy albeit ineffective. Swift needs to play deeper, perhaps in games where we are the favourites it makes sense to start him whe...

Re: Rival Watch

Neil Harris made it very clear that only a few important players know even what the breach is, so there must be further restrictions than normal(perhaps they don’t want a repeat of what was said online when Adam Johnson or Ched Evans had their cases revealed). Time will tell, it is interesting that ...

Re: Rival Watch

Neil Harris suggested it was a serious legal case. There’s lots of noises about it being with drugs, but unless he has been caught dealing them or committed a serious crime being high most cases it results in a suspension without anyone knowing anything about it.

Re: Pedro Mendes

It’s not particularly clear whether athletes have to quarantine. The government website says they are exempt if they’re playing in a competition, however does that include players signing for clubs? Ceballos resigned for Arsenal and didn’t have to quarantine for example. Unless there’s very strict c...

Re: RUMOUR: Rafael

I’m honestly struggling to work out what his tweet adds to warrant some fans thinking it means he wouldn’t prefer to leave. It says in the article he likes the club and would not force a move. So what does that tweet add?

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

If anything, it's surely more beneficial for Kia to have us in the Prem? It's beneficial for him to get a steady easy stream of income from us with large and frequent turnover of players. Pitch side success isn't really that important to that. And this isn't the first time he's been involved here. ...

Re: Rumour: Ljubomir Fejsa

Last season Fejsa made 5 appearances for Benfica and then went out on loan to Deportivo Alavés in January where he made 13 appearances, presume therefore he either fell out of favour at Benfica or got injured, lost his place and was farmed out to get back up to speed. He got a bad injury 18 months ...

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

It’s not his age we should be worried about, it’s about his ability to play 46 games in a season which can be affected by his age but he’s done okay in the lower leagues of Spain so can’t be the issue itself. One thing that makes me confident he’s old enough is that he does seem to be genuinely a re...

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Eddie said in a group chat that’s it’s very likely to happen. Marca who are reliable for Atlético Madrid news insist it’s a loan if Rodrigo Riquelme signs a new contract but Mundo who are unreliable suggesting it’s a permo. Unless it’s a few million, I think it’d be stupid to buy him outright for a ...

Re: Speculation Daryl Horgan

Jury’s out after his stint at Preston. Could be a smart signing to have on the bench, but this club rather would follow some agent instead.

Re: (Soon to be) CONFIMRED - some kind of Serbian bloke

If anyone was curious to know how the hell Paunovic was allowed to go to Portugal in order to quarantine despite Serbia and the US not being on the exception list for the EU along with work permit etc, it’s because he has Spanish citizenship.

I’m really not convinced he’s the man either. Talksport and Jonathon Low doesn’t count as a source.
