    Regarding Dele Alli, can anyone think of another player who has declined so much at a relatively young age? You see players decline cos of age, and sometimes injuries do for them, but he’s 26 and as far as I’m aware he hasn’t been knackered with injury.  He’s basically gone from being a very good player who potentially could have played for anyone to a shadow of himself. I was trying to think of other examples but I’m struggling.

    I think David Bentley runs him close.

    I could be wrong, but international clearance could be a pain and getting a work permit sorted all before announcing the deal.

    his original WP allowing him to play for Birmingham might have had to be reapplied for maybe ?

    Then you have to work international clearance between 2 international FA’s our and the US, not sure if the Aussies would need input too as he one of theirs.

    Then you have the US sporting behaviour of wanting to announce the replacement either before or simultaneously with any departure officially 

    I certainly think the work permit application would hold up a formal signing but international clearance wouldn't.

    International clearance would only prevent a player actually playing, not signing for a club.

    To quote the Manic Street Preachers, everything's for sale. If the skunks came in with a ludicrous bid, we'd sell either or both players. This sounds like a pre-emptive negotiating position, establishing that it'd have to be a ludicrous bid for us to even entertain it.

    In fairness to the Manics they said "Everything Must Go" which sounds more like a firesale to me. 🤣

    Please hear me out... NW's remit is to stabilise The club and keep it in this Div...We are not going to do that battling at the top...A lot of younger fans won't understand this... How close we came to following Sunderland into the third tier of the EFL...Covid came along and put a spanner in the works...I've wrote off this season(and prob next season too)but at least we'll have a club to support...This is just me looking at the situation from a distance...and picking up snippets

    Easy for you to say 'from a distance'. Some of us have spent a fortune on season tickets and are not particularly happy to write off this season and next.

    I see it isn't just FMTTM that has bedwetters. I am shocked. I trust warnock and his signings. Check out Scarboroughs rise to the Football League in the late 80's. 

    I think the suggestion is that some of the players coming in are not Warnock's signings. So the question is a matter of trust. Does Warnock trust these signings and also the direction the club wishes to go in?

    He just said the Van Bergen deal is nowt do do with me 🤔

    I would like to think that Warnock simply doesn't want to increase the lad's profile by talking about a deal and risk another club coming in at the last minute.

    But unfortunately I don't think that is the case. He's clearly irked with the appointment of Kieran Scott as Head of Football and the fact that the club is looking for players who can make an impact long after Warnock's final season is concluded.

    It's going to be an interesting few months 'off the pitch' that's for sure.

  7. Ooh.


    Mitchell van Bergen can continue his career in England. Middlesbrough is interested in the SC Heerenveen wing attacker. Van Bergen can sign a multi-year contract with the club that currently plays in the Championship - a level below the Premier League. With Middlesbrough, Van Bergen may get his fervently desired transfer. The English club took four points from the first two competition matches. The 21-year-old Van Bergen came over from Vitesse three seasons ago. Except for his first months, he was a basic player at Heerenveen. However, the club now wants to cooperate in a transfer, provided of course the right amount is put on the table. Van Bergen still has a one-year contract in the Abe Lenstra stadium. Previous attempts by Heerenveen to extend that contract came to nothing. Van Bergen has expressed his wish to leave several times in recent months. Heerenveen has to sell Van Bergen this summer or at the latest during the winter break in order to earn something from him.

     seen this in the evening Gibson.  Incase anyone was missing hearing anything about Martin payero. https://c.newsnow.co.uk/A/1087204384?-11183:811

    "But what kind of midfielder would Boro be getting in Payero?

    It's interesting to note the tactics used by manager Javier Sanguinetti. Setting out in a 4-1-4-1 formation, Payero would often play as the right-sided central midfielder in that midfield three."

    Does that actually make sense?
