Re: FV Recruitment Model

It's tough though because under normal circumstances you could argue it would (or at the very least would've brought in a lot more). Holding and Connell in particular. But then you might argue in normal circumstances they wouldn't have got the chance. So who knows. Having 3 of the top 6 and their ac...

Re: FV Recruitment Model

Burnley just feels more old-school sensible financing. Picked up good 'uns from the rags like Michael Keane and Dwight McNeil but muich of the rest is taking a gamble on players too good for the Champo whom the other Prem clubs won't touch; sometimes it works, sometimes (Andre Gray) it doesn't. I w...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Yeah good experience for Crawley, play while Burns is out then go away and work on your game and target Denly/Sibley. Delighted for Pope, been excited for him for a while but injury etc mean it hasn't quite happened for him. Looks the real deal though. Will have natural ups and downs as people start...

Re: FV Recruitment Model

Sure, I think we largely agree. On L2 recruitment I think you're right but, tends to be a lot more churn on contracts down there so lots of people out of contact each year, and also you'd hope there's a moneyball hidden value element that means it isn't always get the top scorer in the league.

Re: FV Recruitment Model

Long term sure but wouldn't be a priority now. Limited numbers of folk who'd uproot and move country for League 2 wages. Not zero, but I don't think it's an efficient use of resources atm. Better off looking at non-league, lower league and any of the Prem teams' (particularly United, City and Liverp...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

To my expert eye out looks v much like it all turns on if we can knock them over and enforce the follow on. Tough act to get them out, bat again, be comfortable we can't lose then get them out again, particularly on that pitch. I know it isn't trendy anymore but they've only bowled 2 (?) sessions a...

But yes, it looks bad. Mind you, I did say this week that Matthews is erratic. I dare say he'll pull off a worldie in...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Heard a spectacular rumour today, that the reason Nadine was released is that he was going around Cardiff paying people to let him beat them up :lol:

Hats off to whoever came up with that, excellent gossip mongering.

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Part of the reason I'd be binning off Zouma. Can't be going on with 3 untested, needs improvement, centre-halves.

Re: General Chit Chat

In this country, Bruce, one can legally call oneself anything one chooses. Only on certain legal documents will you be refered to by your 'legal name'. Be that the one you were registered at birth with, or have subsequently legally changed it to. The rules however are not completely set in stone. I...

Re: General Chit Chat

Very confusing for Jamie Redknapp too.

Does he talk about "your Alexander-Arnolds, your Oxlade-Chamberlains", or is it Alexanders-Arnold and Oxlades-Chamberlain?

Re: Trotting over the Yellowbellies to three points - Lincoln City (A) 14/01/20

The worst thing is the lack of a plan. Lucky dip team selection, go 2 behind and fold like a pack of cards. We've got an embargo so we can't pay transfer fees, most teams in this league don't post transfer fees. We're limited to 2kpw per player, still comfortably mid table numbers. I don't expect us...
