Wow, what a revelation.

Makes total sense to me, no way should we spend every last bit of money we have for transfers on one individual.

Will be glad to see the back of this and have a feeling there is a real chance he will not be playing for us.

Has his form dropped so much tht he now could be a risk player?

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then ūüėā).

I was being sarcastic.

Everybody knows we want Ben Gibson back, it's a non-story from him.

"Warnock will be making the same assurances regarding Boro, with Moore seen as an upgrade on Britt Assombalonga, who will leave Teesside this summer if an acceptable bid is received. Having broken their transfer record to sign Assombalonga for £15m in the wake of relegation from the Premier League, the Boro hierarchy accept they will have to incur a significant loss in order to move the striker on."

"Moore is Warnock’s preferred replacement, and the 71-year-old has held lengthy talks with the forward and his representatives. Whether his powers of persuasion have worked remains to be seen, but sources claim the Boro boss remains hopeful despite being aware of Cardiff’s competing interest."

Ah now it makes sense, Moore's eyed as our main striker replacing Britt, there must be some confidence someone will move for Britt at a cut price to be using that as our pitch. 4-5 million seems about right for what we could get for Britt in his/our situation guess that's one to watch now especially if we bring Moore in the door next week. Also says Amos is seen as QPR bound but Warnock's not given up yet on him and he does want a new Gk but no names given

Would much rather keep Assombalonga through to the end of his contract. He may not be a Warnock-style striker, but he's guaranteed goals. Him and Fletch did alright together in spells last season. IF we brought in Moore he'd still need competition (Fletch might be seen as one of the "off-the-striker" options slightly wider). And, not that I think we're a likely promotion candidate, but Assombalonga could be the difference between a squad that competes during corona and a squad that doesn't - we probably need 2 for every position more than ever.

Can also see him staying. He'll be able to continue to demand decent wages with no fee attached next summer and may see this season as a chance to prove that worth.

My worry in this situation isn't that there seems to be a confidence we can/will sell Britt it's what happens if the 6 foot 5 Moore rocks at Cardiff? Next on the list of big men to replace Britt for our budget is... Zohore? Chris Martin? 

I have no issue moving Britt on for Moore in a 433 with runners around him he probably is an upgrade over Britt in terms of what he can do for people around him and he can leap above almost every CB in the league. It's what the names are below Moore now we know it's essentially Britts replacement that scares me, Gnanduillet as a 3rd striker absolutely no issue from me but if we end up getting him in as a starting no.9 because he's all that's left that fits the 6 foot 3+ parameters I'd be erm worried.

Apart from his goals, Britt is too limited a footballer for us....he has something like fifteen assists for his whole career and for a "top" striker that is abysmal....even Rudy has twice has many as that....if he could add that to his game, he would be so much more effective, but if anything, his selfishness probably costs us goals when he shoots from a ridiculous angle instead of making a simple pass....he is a decent lad by all accounts but very much a one trick pony....so anybody who can work with a partner is an upgrade

    • Sorry to sound harsh, but I think Madison's view on life is negative. He crosses me as the type of person, that never look to them selves, when blame is to be placed. It's always someone else's fault.¬†¬† I'm glad we never signed him, although his stats were impressive ...¬†
    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong,¬†but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look¬†stifled and¬†devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward,¬†the striker¬† with the best heading ability¬†is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had¬†a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.¬†¬†
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s¬†by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham¬†and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch,¬†I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term¬†and¬†long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person.¬†People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
