Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

Players of Oliveria’s quality do not come about too often on a free, as Norwich released him from his contract earlier today. £1 million wages a year is not a lot (around £20k a week). Shame because he was a focal point when he played, nibbled at defenders who clearly didn’t like getting too tight t...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Shame as he could be a cheap but v effective first teamer going forward, the contract buy out clause is supposedly quite cheap

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I think he should be in goal for cup games, not just on the bench. We will not be looking at any cup runs next year as the primary focus will be the league therefore what’s the risk? Good experience!

Re: RIP - Gordon Neate

The guy personified the club, use to sit in the north stand and always noticed his efforts half time replacing the divots in the goal mouth, my friends dad would often have a chat as he could remember him as a player.

Club 1871, step up and name the bar in the stand ‘I’ll have mine Neate’.

Legend

Re: Next Season's Squad.

As expected... no real surprises. Always a tough time letting the scholars go, hopefully they can find their level elsewhere.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Still don't get the "Gomes wants to move Swift on" argument. From 26 December to the 30th March (when Gomes arrived) Swift has started 16 out of 17 league games. Surely he wouldn't be actively looking to move him on if he played him so much Maybe Gomes will be forced to move him on is a b...

So already saving 10-15k a week (McShane), 8-10k a week for Harriott and 10-12k for O’Shea.

£1.5 million off the wage bill

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Williams would make no sense, £500kish sign on fee, 20k wages and will have no sell on asset at the end. The reason why our loanees did so well they all had a point to prove! Williams at the wrong end of the spectrum. Our range should be 19-26, hungry players capable of carrying this team forward

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Must say Brentford’s released list looks of interest to me, with Barbet, Odubajo, Macleod and McEachran all available, I’d probably take any of those for our squad next year Barbet - class, but likely to sign for Villa. He’s already told Brentford he’s off. Odubajo - horrific injury for Hull and si...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Read so many comments wanting to keep Ezatolahi. The guy has been nothing but a sicknote. Yeah he looks decent but we have one Obita already, we can't afford to keep another. OK if it was a free great, that isn't gonna happen. He’s had a n injury then been kept out by the limit on loan players in t...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

It’s the wages that have killed the deals, think Bod is missing off the list too. Take Mannone for example, 2.5 million layout who will be on my guess £20,000/week give or take. That’s 2.5 mill outlay and £1 mill per season on that contract. Popa’s contract I have heard to be rumoured on 25k/week. A...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

They gambled and it didn’t pay off. All eggs in one basket with the hope of financial gain of the prem. the fact is unless you get back in the prem within the parachute period teams are going to find it tougher and tougher. It will eventually prove who are the standout ‘coaches’ in the league, impro...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

The football league have been introducing ‘soft’ transfer bans for teams tilting towards breaking FFP. Birmingham has been warned to reduce the deficit and ‘actively’ do something about it. They did not do this in January hence the point deduction. Aston Villa are close and a ‘soft’ transfer ban cou...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Bidwell would be a good acquisition. Barbet would be my choice as well due to his versatility at the back, possible upgrade on Blackett. Browne from Preston has had a good season and would fit in well.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

What’s clear by the press releases and interviews of late, the next 2-3 weeks are crucial for the planning for next season and what we are able to do. May will be massive for this club. Had a look at all those out of contract in the summer and if we are shopping for these players there are some that...

Josh Vela has just announced he’s leaving on a free. He would be a low risk addition, would compliment Rino well! And still a good age for improvement
