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 😂).

How many previous managers are now having the same problem, they seem fine being able to get the players up here even staying over so i dont see the 'club or area as the problem' only my view but its got to be when they sit down to negotiate, if going by what we are led to believe we have healthy wage budget to use so maybe the main issue is the agent fees and we know how gibson feels about these.

This is my feeling as well. From what Warnock has said though the agents and players are living in cloud cuckoo land. Obviously he has got to put a positive spin on it but to be fair I don't see all these players we've "missed out on" rocking up anywhere else on huge bumper contracts (except Sheff Wed apparently...). There are loads of free agents around that seem to be struggling to get signed as well. They don't seem to realise we are in COVID times and everyone is going to be cautious with their money.

Give it some time, things will start moving towards the end of the window. Just hopefully they'll start moving for us too.

I read an article this am stating numerous clubs in the championship are facing bankruptcy due to HMRC demanding their deferred tax. This amounts to 4-5million per club. This is bound to have an impact on our recruitment I would have thought. If HMRC are going to push this I am sure there will be bargains to be had later in the window if we are in a position to add to our costs. After reading that I am more resigned to having to wait.

It doesn't sound like we are still negotiating, it sounds like it's only the medical left 

People have been saying that he's been due for/doing his medical for days.

Not that I'd expect him to play against Watford, he'll be very short of match fitness with the amount of time he's had off.

    • Fry absolutely wants to remain at the club. Has no plans to leave. He's a home boy and just moved into a new house in Nunthorpe 👍. I think the 3 previous managers talking about problems with players attitudes just highlights what's been wrong at the club for a long while. Luckily a few of them are moving on this summer.  And they will be in a big shock when they don't get anywhere near the current money they are currently earning.  
    • Agree. Also its not just a strong first XI we need, if we want to push for promotion we're also going to to need decent cover on the bench.
    • Pretty depressing reading these posts, I have to say. If any of these rumours are true, we're gonna end up losing some of our best players, along with the dead wood. Just another reason for me not to have any hope next season, if Warnock is also alienating them, by continuing not to pick them when fit, or throwing them under the bus in press conferences. I guess we'll find out if he knows what he's doing come pre-season, but right now its not looking too clever.  
    • Utterly baffling and the whole clique situation also smacks of poor player management...something Warnock was supposed to be good at. Like a few others here I decided not to bother watching when I saw the starting lineup. His decision to bring Britt on almost seems like taking the mickey. Considering our season is over, as far as achieving anything is concerned, why on Earth not blood a few youngsters, or give more fringe players game time, just to see if there are any capable of stepping up and filling the gaps? I mean he's got nothing more to learn about the players that started yesterday (Archer apart). If there are indeed cliques in the squad, surely the best way to nullify them, (in the short term, at least) is to make significant changes? Treat our remaining fixtures the way PL teams do early cup ties...  
    • Just another sticking plaster to issues that run deep within the club and we have been repeating our selves which seems like forever
