Have we ever let a youngster go and then thought 'Wow, that was a mistake!'? James Morrison was probably the biggest, maybe Lee Cattermole for what we replaced him with? Letting Chris Smalling go back down south before he joined Man Utd for millions? But apart from that I think the club have been pretty good at letting academy go

Chris Smalling was never in our academy though, so it isn't the same.

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 😂).

Ben Godfrey, Peacock Farrell and Chris Brunt are ones that standout.

I think generally we let our lads go to get their careers going we've let Fryer train with us all summer and gave him full medical support when he's picked up muscle injuries despite him not being under contract, all to help him in his trials.

Exactly, rarely do the players we let leave end up playing above the standing of the football club, most have to leave the club to get actually make a career in the game. Interested to see how Bettinelli gets on, seemed decent a few years back, wonder if a change of club can help him rediscover the form that got him an England call up

Why is he worthless?  He's got potential and is still under contract.

Looks like you are right according to Lurker. I am surprised but will absolutely take any fee for him. Well done the club I say.

I liked Pears but they must have a reason for getting rid.. Maybe he won't sign a new deal? or has an agent they don't want to deal with?.. A couple of the young lads signed new deals last year (Spence, Wood and Coulson) so you have to think what they're offering is fair. Also we're living in a time where getting a 100k for him might actually matter.

    • Think this could be an interesting year..  wouldn't be surprised to see Fulham at top but Sheff U without Wilder and WBA with Ismael could be a bit less predictable...  not many stand out teams, so Blanco could finally get it right 🙂  
    • Can totally relate to this. Work isn't too bad as we're in small teams anyway, but remote working has been brilliant for me (when the tech has worked). I also avoid big groups socially...except when I go to music festivals.   Back on topic, the longer the summer goes on without any transfer news, the more grim it appears next season will be. We still have the best part of 2 months to get deals done, but unless Warnock and co have been particularly creative in their scouting and recruiting, it looks as though we'll be picking up the rejects nobody else wants...  
    • The big one now, it's Germany. A chance for Gareth to show he learnt something about knockout matches after that exit from the WC semi-final v Croatia.
    • They will show all 3 recently relagated teams they did last year I believe 
    • Think our game could be selected by Sky. Albeit I feel the game of the week for the opening week from broadcasting perspective is Bournemouth v WBA. I can also see one of the newly promoted teams being shown. Think its 3 EFL games on opening weekend that get shown. Friday night, Saturday lunchtime and Sunday lunchtime.
