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 😂).

I thought I was the only person who remembered D-A-D, apart from the band themselves! 

They are still active 

Help Your Selfish is a really good album

Might be up your alley 👍🤘

From twitter:

Anton Toloui @SkyAnton
#WWFC, as many PL clubs are, looking to trim the squad on #DeadlineDay.
Ruben Vinagre expected to complete his loan to Olympiakos, the deal also includes a £22.5m option to buy.
Oskar Buur is expected to join FC Volendam on loan.
No offers as of yet for Bennett & Miranda.

Would be nice to bring in one more permanent deal and then Roberts and another on loan.

Would've thought there'll be very little done outside the Premier League. Everyone's skint.

Everyone has been skint for years really, hopefully this pandemic can lead us away from the boom and bust strategy of championship sides and actually ensure we have clubs who are self sustaining

Somebody should let Derby and Forest know that

Whilst there's so much money to be made in the PL, the temptation to gamble to get there will always exist.

thats why there should be a robust FFP which actively stops this practice, there should also be clear guidance on contracts and clauses if they do get relegated as opposed to hefty parachute payments

I still think we can go 343 with Roberts/tav fighting for that position. Play howson as a more deeper sitting rwb to provide the cover.

Akpom on the left but drifting in centrally with a more attack minded lwb to provide the width down that side.

In my opinion this just creates another problem rather than solving the one mentioned in the previous post. If the efl crack down on the boom or bust tactics of the championship, the clubs going up will be far less prepared to take on the big guns in the premier league and 9 times out of 10 will come straight back down again. Add to that the contract clauses scenario and they become far less attractive to play for for new signings as their wages could get cut massively in 12 months time. How do they then compete with established sides?

Any reform has to come from the top down, not the other way around. And while the TV money exists as it does for premier league sides, nothing is changing any time soon.

    • At the moment, it looks like an NHS COVID Pass is something you may need for international travel and some of the pilot events we've been running to test crowds returning. Other than that, I'm not sure we're going to be making it mandatory in the short or long term. For me, it seems like something that makes sense in the short term but perhaps something we should move away from in the long term. I don't know much about the situation where some may not be able to get the vaccine for health reasons but if that's the case, we'll need to be able to prove they're exempt. Ultimately though, the vaccine is a choice and regardless of whether or not they're stupid anti-vaxxers, so long as the majority of the country is vaccinated, we may need to live without inhibiting people based on their vaccination status.
    • You test yourselves?  Here we go to a test area, where educated people do the testing.
    • I'm still in England mode, I'll need to wait for them to get knocked out or win the tournament before I can get excited by Boro stuff again.
    • It is very likely that most of the crowd will either be Danish or cheering them on, as travel rules not helping Welsh. Both teams are in the situation that there are no huge expectations about them and they will both be thinking, we can beat them..  it is "only" Wales/Denmark not France, Italy or Netherlands, so this has the potential to be a really good game..  now if I can just find something to do for two days...
    • Well the thing with festivals is that people are mostly there for the music and you usually have that much in common to talk about. Or you can just focus on the bands and tune everything else out. Or at least I can. Its just formal social situations I hate. 😉 Its not so much crowds themselves...its being expected to interact with people that bothers me. Thats when my social anxiety kicks in. ☹️
