Re: CONFIMRED - Barrow on his way

Why is he allowed out on loan but not Gunter & GMac? Some very odd decisions going on at the mo Because the fees offered for G & GMac were 'derisory' from what I've heard - they knew we wanted to offload and hence tried to get them for very little, whereas for Barrow we've been offered a ve...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

The size and colour of numbers on the back of the shirt are reasonably standard. If Derby choose to give Rooney number 32 and change the entire team number colour to red, how does that contravene sponsorship rules ? Read my original post. But simply put back of shirt sponsorship is limited to a cer...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

So just make them all red - can’t see the problem and good luck to them It’s the size which is the problem, rather than the colour The size and colour of numbers on the back of the shirt are reasonably standard.

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

Really ? Why not simply change the colour of the numbers to red ? EFL potentially looking at this deal and stating the size of the shirt number exceeds the maximum size for back of shirt sponsorship. If they changed the colour of Rooney’s numbers and no one else, then it’d definitely make the EFL r...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Would be interesting to know the terms of the sale of the ground and Bearwood. What security of tenure do we have ? You would hope we have a very long exclusive lease Are there any restrictive covenants in place ? Do we just have the right to use the ground for matches or can we still generate non ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins

John Madejski's Wallet While many of us like the idea (personally I think its a necessity), has Gomes ever indicated that he's particularly a fan of 3 at the back?

Thought he went that route a couple of times away from home towards the end of last season (Norwich maybe?). Think he used Yiadom as the third centre back

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

Definitely interesting. No real sign of Casumo being any more visible than a standard sponsor (yet) though Maybe they will name the stadium etc and that’s where the bit of extra money has come from (I genuinely don’t think it’s a lot mind you - nothing like Rooneys 100k p/w) Derby really do push it...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins

Wouldn’t be surprised to see three or even four start. Think we will see Ovie, Rafael, Joao and possibly Pele

Potentially I could see Gomes going with three centre backs as well. In that case I’d have Meite and Joao up front, with Swift, Rino and Either Pele or Ejaria in midfield

Re: Financial Fair Play

Comparison to Coventry is just wrong. The football club (and its owners) have never owned the freehold or leasehold to the stadium. They were always a tenant to a council controlled entity. SISU's original beef was the rent didn't go down when they were relegated from the Premier League and remained...

Re: José Gomes whelmguage

I'm still not drinking the Koolade. I found his post match on Saturday a bit Adkins-esque. We train well, we have good movement, we were positive, etc etc but the reality was we didn't play well nor create enough chances. I think with this transfer investment and chicanery by Uncle Dai & Big Nig...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

Very happy with Ovie’s loan to buy move. Really rated him last season. His energy and work rate meant we could allow our attackers to stay further up the pitch and not track back (yes Barrow, I’m talking about you). Plus he has the best feet I’ve think I’ve ever seen. For me this could be massively ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Rafael Cabral

Regardless as to whether the new signing is a better/more/experienced keeper than the 19 yr old here on loan, the fact that Rafael has been brought will be an immense kick in the teeth to Virginia's confidence; he must think that the manager doesn't rate him. As confidence is a key aspect for a kee...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Had it on decent authority that the EFL has approved a transaction that has allowed Dai to buy the training ground at Bearwood at a profit, hence freeing up our recent FFP restrictions. The ground was already sold last season. However, it does also feel like some good structuring of deals will help ...
