That fat twat.

It makes no sense though. We barely spend anything. Our wage bill must be astronomical.


We spent nearly £20m in 2017, m8.


That's not a lot though. Some teams spend that on one player.

It's the reincarnation of DD mate so this behaviour is pretty standard.


For being honest?

Okay then.......

Tell me... who is our big money marquee signing so far?

You're trolling again mate. Look after yourself better.

transfers starting to heat up a little

Millwall have signed Frank Fielding in goal. Name was mentioned a little in relation to us
Cardiff have signed Will Vaulks (perfect fit tbf), again one we mentioned but 3m would have been way too much for us, along with a couple from the lower leagues

Brizzle making some good signing is Kalas and De silva (real coup the latter, amazed they got him)

Saw that Webster from Bristol had a 12 million move rejected to Villa. He’s a good centre half but 12 million - don’t make me laugh

I am sure that others said the same thing when we said no to Brighton for Moore.

It’s a bit frustrating when you see Brizzle able to demand that for Webster, and that bang average skinny 18 year old gimp from Leeds go for 10m when there is talk of Loader going for 3m certainly

Still suppose that’s the position we find ourself in

Unfortunately we haven’t offloaded a single senior player. There are a number of peripheral players we just cannot get rid of. It makes it more likely we have to sell players we would prefer to keep.

If Loader had scored another 2-3 goals in his 20 odd appearances you could easily double his value.

But for an attacking player, 1 in 20 odd does not excite, no matter the prospect. Especially missing a couple of sitters.

Others, including some in here as I recall. (Although not sure it was for 12 mil?).

Brizzle meanwhile are reportedly holding out for up to 30 mil for Webster (who they have only had for one season).
They remain confident they will be able to keep him as they push for promotion to the Premier League.
(They are doing a business at CB, having sold Aiden Flint to Boro last season for several mil).

Manager Lee Johnson is eager to retain his side's top players and push on after an eighth-placed finish in the Championship. Johnson said: "If you’re a Premier League club and you’re not looking at Adam Webster then you’re not doing your business properly. You can never say never in football because if it was a top-six Premier League side that’s chucking out serious money then we’d have to take a view, but at this point, there’s absolutely no intention of moving Webby on."

O’Neil was doing a good job at Forest I thought. Forest are a disgrace, they sack manager after manager, giving them no time with the same outcome each time. When will they learn that time is needed to build a squad up (look at Farke at Norwich FFS, I’m sure many keyboard warriors wanted him gone after the first season where they finished 14th or whatever

Another good sale from Brentford. Dan Bentley to Bristol for rumoured 4 million. I’d like to see a comparison of Brentford’s transfer fees vs how much they sell them on for, they must make some healthy profit.

I remember when we played them at the Madejski and they booed and chanted "you don't know what you're doing" when he took Oliveira off for Camerin Jerome.
