I wouldk personally buy a Chuba Akpom bed cover and light shade

Get yourself on the phone to the club shop. They're missing a trick not selling these.

I, for one, would jump at the chance to buy Ronnie Jepson branded oven mits

Gazette picking up the Jones story isn't necessarily confirmation but in the past they've been informed from club sources that it's all rubbish and we have no interest which isn't happening this time.

Warnock was absolutely certain pre Barnsley that he would have the striker ready for the bench at Bournemouth I'd be shocked if Akpom isn't announced today or tomorrow morning.

It seems like the usual Gazette crap to fill a page.

Yeah but usually they slip a line in at the end 'we understand hes not a target' the past 3 windows when we've been linked with Jones they've always played it down with those kind of editorialized lines.

Maybe Vickers didn't give Dom Gibson's number is another scenario and the Gazette are now just scouring forums as Warnock said but Dom did seem to know about the Morsy deal before it happened if he's not writing that we have absolutely no interest like they have before there might be something to our interest.

Wasn't Shaw one of the journalists banned from the ground a few years back? Could make sense for them to not be as in the know if he's one of the main reporters now.

Were we after him? I’ve heard so many rumours this window, I’m losing track.

The club is to make a statement with regards to incoming transfers it reads as follows" We can categorically deny any interest in any of the players we are linked with in the papers because we have bugger all interest in any targets, and unfortunately and once again we have failed to bring in our earlier transfer targets, despite 99% of the division not seemingly having the same problem" Yours Faithfully Your Number 1 recruitment team.

    • I’ll be paying the cash for this. I should’ve just bought the bloody season pass....   either way, I can’t see whatmore and roberts both starting, but I’m all for this being a Roberts game. I reckon we will be pressing high up the pitch, so having him on the ball in the final third would be perfect. Aside from that, both saville and McNair were visibly struggling towards the end of the last game, I reckon there might be some rested legs....
    • If we can offload someone then fine, I'm not sure how likely it is though.  Assombalonga will be on too much money I'd have thought and why pay any kind of transfer fee for a player you can get on a free transfer 6 months down the line.
    • We should be trying to sell Assombalonga in January, he's not contributing anywhere near enough to be indispensable and getting something for him is better than nothing. He's also not contributing anywhere near enough to be worth a new contract, at least in my opinion. 
    • Would make more sense to wait until the summer I think?
    • If Britt and Fletcher don't sign new contracts soon I would guess Warnock will move heaven and earth to get a new striker. I know they're not great but they're decent enough and to lose for nothing would be terrible.
