Re: Rumour - Charlie Adam

A lot of the fat trimming isn’t all about quality either, it’s about wages. We’re trying to fend of FFP punishments and still remain competitive. Too many seem to be getting blurry eyed wondering why a Kelly on 20k a week goes and maybe an Adam at 10k a week arrives. Gourlay absolutely f**ked us. W...

Re: Rumour - Charlie Adam

For all we know we have offered him a one year contact at £1500 pw which would not break the bank and CM is an area where we are very short of experience. Who knows he might regain some form. Having said that if we have offered more than a year that would be mental. should have just kept Liam Kelly

Re: Matt Miazga

just can't see it happening. surely Morrison would have been given assurances he will be first choice here prior to signing? he had a contract offer from brum albeit 1 year compared to our offer of two. He was a stalwart for them, and a first name on their team sheet. Why would he choose to turn the...

Luton Barnsley Charlton all promoted, Charlton, in particular, are a financial mess and won't be signing anyone. we will have enough to stay up with the team we have at the moment, regardless of who else we might or might not sign

Re: New Training Ground

That's certainly a different way of doing things. All over academies are one way in one way out. Anyone know of plans for a dome to be going in? That to me is what appears to be missing. The ones at Southampton, Spurs, Chelsea are world class. Certainly the younger kids need this facility. Was goin...

Re: New Training Ground

Having said that, the games I attend weekly, it is just a case of walking in there, often signing a sheet, no other checks are carried out. Reading through the planning documents, it sounds like access to the opposition teams, fans etc will be slightly easier at Bearwood. There's a separate entranc...

Re: Gary Hooper

McNulty and Baldock both signed when gourlay was here no? What about bod? Was he a gourlay signing? These guys could all be on shit loads.... ship them out and replace with cheaper equally good /slightly shitter player. From a business point of view it makes sense, maybe not so much from a footballi...

Re: Gary Hooper

I think its about 55 appearances in 3 seasons isn't it? 18 goals in that time. That's not great and he'll be 32 in Jan. 6 appearances last season. I haven't tracked him that closely, and I know he was a good player. Just doesn't seem a great option to me. He just looks like Baldock mk2 a cheaper Ba...
