Old Man Andrews He's scoring goals, Bradford need a goalscorer and want promotion. Not really sure how its that interesting or newsworthy.


For someone who bangs on about the lower leagues I would have thought it would be right up your street.

Swindon are top and Bradford are 4th. It could scupper Swindon’s promotion push.

No the recall aspect isn't that interesting. Where he ends up on a permanent deal will be.


:lol: If John Smith posted that point you’d be wnaking yourself into a frenzy.

The player himself openly said he didn’t want to return to Bradford. This is, by the way, the same player that totally flopped last year at Bradford

Not sure why Bradford would want a striker who clearly doesn’t want to play for them. It is pretty sad if it’s just to stop “Swindon” considering how close Bradford were to the Champ a couple of years ago


I suspect Bradford have had offers for him elsewhere and want to cash in. If Swindon really want him they'll have to stump up what he's valued at. Not sure what else you'd expect them to do.


Or let him stay at Swindon, let him score a shed load more and hence increase his transfer value in the summer

Win win for Bradford that way. Either he performs well there and his transfer value goes up. Or he performs poorly which hinders a rival

I suspect he may go back to Swindon anyway but permanently, in which case it’s fine. But if he’s gone back to Bradford to play, and doesn’t score, what does that say about Bradford’s manager?


It's hardly a win win for Bradford if his goals get Swindon promoted at their expense is it?

West Ham looking at Fellaini in January. Does David Moyes need to sign him wherever he goes? :lol:

He has dirt on Moyes. Still waiting for what information Paddy Kenny has on Neil Warnock to come out in the wash.

According to Transfermarkt, Eoin Doyle is out of contract in the summer so absolutely no transfer value whatsoever then.

Bradford will have received enquiries from other clubs so will be looking to cash whilst they can. If it derails Swindon in the process then that's a bonus.

Next off the Brazilian production line is 17 year old midfielder Rainier. Reports claiming that Real Madrid have agreed a €30M deal with Flamengo for him.

Is there a reason why the English clubs are seemingly oblivious to the South American talent pool?

Work permits, I'd imagine. You won't get a work permit for a non EU player if they haven't played enough full internationals in the previous 2 years so absolutely no chance of signing up young talent unless they can miraculously dig out a Spanish or Italian grandparent from somewhere, and even that won't work from once we leave the EU.

The regulations are different in Spain and Portugal and, of course, they also have shared languages.

Perez lost out on Neymar, he doesn't want to lose out on another Brazilian wonderkid so he concentrates on that Market.

It's that simple.

The work permit criteria is set by the Home Office, not the FA, they're the ones issuing the permits after all. Would be odd for a pro Brexit government to make it easier to hire immigrants.

After years of Gazza, Platt and Wilkins being the only exports to Italy, they are now in for some of our abject rejects. I noticed Chris Smalling was playing for Roma last night (obvs got beat).
