  • Just as well we're not being judged on the second half for our prospects next season Mind you the only first team regulars on the field were Celina Roberts and Routledge  All the rest were either regular subs like Fulton - who looked OK - or players…
  • So who are these former players who want to work together again? Any ideas who Mr Cooper is referring to? CCV maybe?
  • It would be a risk that is for sure It was less of a risk with Roberto as he was coming into a lower division Also with Brendan as the club was already on the up and had a core of players who would stay in the team through to promotion Also no finan…
  • The Hull sell on fee has been widely reported as 5% of the upfront fee or £750,000 if the upfront fee is indeed £15m The problem is that there are 2 upfront fees reported of £15m and £18m depending on which journo you believe The Swans are either ge…

  • Anywhere between £5m and £10m says he's off UAE rather than Villa? Who knows, as long as he does go I don't mind where
  • Does somebody care about BHA's manager? Why? It's his problem not ours
  • Worth remembering that athletic footballers are what many top teams are going for now - LIverpool Tottenham don't play possession for the sake of it but they have quick athletic players capable of getting the ball back quickly and keeping it  -playe…
  • Lameiras looks like a number 10 to me - same position as Celina and Routledge
  • So Birch gets financial clarity so that potential buyers are fully aware what they are getting into? Shame we didn't  have that under HJ as the start of the rot was a desire to prepare the club for sale and the loss of control over player wages didn…

  • Had a series of great home matches against Watford under Graham Taylor. That 3-3 draw and a 3-2 home win were epic So good I  almost forgot about the 4-1 home defeat!
  • What is that going rate  though? Mepham went to Bournemouth for what £15m? Not sure he's better than VDH but he is 3 years younger
  • Chinese football or the Far East I think Looks like he's finished in Europe When did he last have a good game in the PL or in Turkey?
  • Don't think he did enough last season in the games where he was fully fit Should have the skills to be a big player in the Championship - JA and LB were and they were smaller than TC if anything - but something is missing, The little bit of bite in …
  • Sorry when was any owners' concern any different?
  • only 1 season and a bit of working with  senior players so he is Cameron Toshack plus I don't think that is enough
  • I don't mind about Potter going If he's not up for the challenge - which he described as difficult in his recent interview - then we are better off with somebody new who IS up for it We are not a big club so the PL will always pull ambitious manager…
  • I think he needs experience of managing senior players first Also he needs to spit out that vocabulary of clichés he comes out with
  • Question is who will want our job knowing the widely publicised financial issues Prospective managers will know the talent will be sold if the big earners can't be got off the payroll If it were you wouldn't you wait until the sales of Borja Ayews 1…
  • When all managers say the same thing they all say nothing GP has said nothing Nothing to say except goodbye and thanks for the things you got right Now for somebody who can do what you did AND do the things you couldn't - like organise a decent goal…
  • Big big unattributed IF he said it etc
  • There's no evidence for GP being misled by the owners as such but there are some small telling details like GP's absence from press conference after last minute player sales in August / the Ryan Woods fiasco GP's answer when he said he had a general…
  • Can anybody remember the last time we got approached about a player or manager, said no and that was the end of it? All the refusal does is drive up the amount of compo paid or up the transfer fee Unless the player doesn't fancy it ( Leroy Fer ) Or …
  • He gets the award from me as the Championship manager who put up with the most s**t from his club owners and just got on with it Better than that he got loads more than many expected out of the squad at his disposal Can't ask much more than that
  • Back we go to the start of the season What was GP expecting of our owners? That they would get Ryan Woods and other signings over the line ? That he would be stuck with all those centre backs being sold off last minute? Whatever he expected he has k…
  • It looks like it all depends on trust - does GP trust the owners enough to stay What he has said so far would suggest he knows he is in for another hard summer and that improving the team is unlikely given the finances He is on the same page as the …
  • Too much bookie action for this just to be smoke At the least Brighton look like making an approach Will our esteemed owners attempt to persuade GP to stay or is he just another source of income? Graeme Jones is no longer available if GP leaves Do w…
  • And if it's true would Dan get to play at all? Man U have gradually been introducing some of their youngsters into Champions League squads  ( eg Tahith Chong ) and they have reportedly done well
  • GP was quoted in April as saying something like " in an ideal world we would keep everybody we want to keep and go on improving but that depends on the financial side, and that is above me" or something like He's a realist and if he has only one fit…
  • Neither club is saying anything has happened and Wales Online is saying there has been no approach Being referred to as the alternative to Man U getting Jadon Sancho from Dortmund for a lot more money than the £15m quoted for Dan Sancho had a very g…
  • We could head the thread " silly season " because over the years rumours have mostly come to nothing Unfortunately one club who like to leak their plans to friendly journalists- softening up both the club and player- is Everton They did it over both…
