    Massive haircut means big financial loss. It's not predictive text it's business slang. 

    I wasn't aware of that. I was thinking like Hamza Choudhury

    creditors will have to take a massive haircut

    Sorry. I know it's predictive texting, but that made me giggle 😆

    Thanks just realised I had thought hang on we played Bristol City away and there is no Bournemouth City nor Barnsley City

    I was thinking the same thing 😳

    Or, to save messing about


    "On the other hand, Brandon Soppy should leave well for Udinese, James Léa Siliki will play in the English 2nd division in Middlesbrough and Rafik Guitane will leave for Reims (who plans to lend him to Portugal). On the other hand, still no progress for Maouassa, Niang and especially Camavinga, undoubtedly dependent on negotiations concerning Mbappé, for a possible departure from PSG.

    Keith Stroud first game back lads and ladies.

    Well that's cheered me up no end. Possibly the worst referee I've had the misfortune of seeing in action

    Gibson said he was going to smash the league and my opinion set himself up to be milked by Clubs and Agents alike knowing money was available.

    How many more times will this be used as a stick by people to beat Steve Gibson with? He never said that. He said that 'we want to smash the league" Two totally different things.

  7. Steve Round was on Boro's coaching staff. I seem to remember it being reported that he applied for the Boro job when Mac got the England job. I think he went to Everton after that

    It might be worth waiting to see what Rooney actually does in this league. He's been playing in the MLS for a while now and whilst it is improving it is a long way of the physicality and pace of any English league.


    The other point as others have made is that through the duration of Britt's contract he will be worth something, probably in excess of £10m, whilst Rooney is/will be worthless in terms of a transfer fee.

    As the man in the orthopaedic shoe said “I stand corrected “

  9. Britt Assombalonga to #mfc. £15m transfer fee, 4 year deal at £40,000 per week. Total cost = £23.3m


    Wayne Rooney to #dcfc. £0 transfer fee, 18 month deal at £100,000 per week. Total cost = £7.8m


    We're just better in the transfer market. End of!



    I hate to say it but they do have a point?
