NewCorkSeth Pog was a free who scored 24 league goals for the club making him something like our 8th highest championship scorer. Its not his fault we paid him so much.

No, he had no say in his wages. :roll:

Also, that's not even correct. He scored 19 Championship goals, not 24. Five of his league goals were in the Premier League.

Kitson, Doyle, Forster, Long, Le Fondre, NHunt, Sidwell, Morley all scored more than 24 tier 2 goals for us just off the top of my head.

Hell, Church scored more Championship goals than he actually got.


Pog is our 7th best Premier League scorer of ALL Time!

Doyle, Kitson, Le Fondre, HRK, Harper, Kebe?

I reckon Stephen Hunt will be up there, maybe for HRK

I'm banking on Lita filling his boots with cup goals. SHunt is a good call. Ki-him might be up there.

I thought we were talking strictly league goals?

Think that's what he means, Lita obvs got a lot of goals while we were in the prem but a lot of them were in the cup.

John Smith
Snowball Other Champ clubs would fancy McNulty, Kelly, Gunter, Jaakola, Blackett, Richards
No they wouldn't but please if you know any get on the phone and let them know.

Snowy, we were almost relegated. From the 3 clubs that did get relegated, we've only identified 2 players on this thread that we might be interested in (Ajayi and Vaulks). And yet Champ clubs would fancy 6 of our players that you identified (plus, any other players of our's too)? In short, I'm not sure Champ clubs would fancy them all that much really. (Yes, Wigan - one of the worst clubs in Champ this season - were interested in Blackett. For about 400K.)

not just players at a nearly relegated club, but players who couldn't get a game at a nearly relegated club....

Will need mega powers of persuasion, along with definite cooperation from the players themselves, to move any of them on tbh. At least Jaakkola is out of contract.

There’d be takers for all of those players. Just not nec Champ clubs, or ones who would be willing to spend any money on them. Could well be a lot of loans happening with us paying some of their wage, as alluded to by Gomes

Yeah, because I didn't list him. Very badly phrased on my part.

Generally wise,but I don't fancy your chances of being proved right.

Why didn't you do that yourself before you posted? Maybe cos many threads/posts in here are speculative anyway?

Lita had that great run when Doyle was injured, will definitely have our scores Pog.

Seol only scored three but two of them were worldies.

Yeah, the headers against Charlton and Blackburn were top drawer. :wink:

Josh Vela - A couple of years ago he was being touted for a bigger career and he is out of contract this summer.

Could be a great bargain given that he is at the peak of his career and also with the FFP aspect of the deal it makes sense too. If we can't get Baker back I think he would be a good alternative

Vela isn't that good?!

Would Nick Powell be a good replacement for Swift if we cashed in? His wages may go high though as someone on a free.

Ben Wiles, if we could knick him for cheap, would be another excellent punt.

Luke Chambers on a free from Ipswich could be reasonable CB cover.
Also agree with getting Nick Powell from Wigan on a free and flogging swift to raise some cash.

I remember seeing Lita score two at the Ethiad. Those were the days... 8)
