Nah, they've turned them all off to save on the leccy bill. You can just see a solitary candle flickering in Warnock's office as he stands sadly beside a silent fax machine. It's the autumn of discontent.

he has his own candle?!!!!

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 😂).

He uses it to ward off the darkness, in case the ghost of Tony Pulis should creep up on him as he walks the corridors alone at night.

Some say if you listen closely deep in the bowels of Rockliffe, you can hear a faint voice whispering "aaaaaaard"...

Why wasn't Victor Orta making all these quality signings when he was our head of recruitment 🙂

Tbf players we wanted but got beat to were included Meunier and Ziyech who choose PSG and Ajax respectively. Couple more i think. De Roon was a good buy just not used properly.

I have a feeling we might see a bid come in for Dael Fry in the next 10 days.

It could be spurs as they are interested in an alternative Championship centre back if they can't agree a price for rodon. Have to say anything 10+ million for Fry you snap their hand off

Don't assume he wouldn't rather play football than be a benchwarmer hundreds of miles from where he is happy. He has three years left on his contract and I would not be surprised to see him reject a move that doesn't suit him. He does not want to be another Gibbo, so he won't jump ship as easily as some think

I was drafted to Bristol RNR for 6 mths to help them prepare their Minesweeper for sea ALONE lived in a hotel I was 21 and never been so alone in my life...The reserve lads all went home evenings...The point I'm trying to make is it takes time to settle into a new environment,I suppose given a choice I would rather stay in familiar surroundings

Yeah I get it's similar situation however it's somewhat easier for footballers who will be getting a massive pay rise and moving into a London penthouse

    • Under normal accounting standards for intangible assets, transfer fees are amortized on a straight-line basis over the period of the players’ contracts. This was how Derby got into trouble by assigning a residual value to reduce the annual amortized cost to the club. Let's say you are allowed to defer the payment, the costs would have to be assessed over a reduced period and therefore be higher in the out years, big risk if you don't succeed.
    • Surely depends how they account for the actual transfer fee payment, can’t remember if they put it through operating costs or not (and Cba to check right now). If the transfer fee is incurred in the P+L as it’s paid then there is definitely a FFP benefit to back ending payments. 
    • It'll be a loan deal for a year as Mr_Maz says.  If it's got any link to FFP then I can only think it's to help Fulham's FFP position for the coming year.  I don't believe they've sold anyone for any serious money so far, and they would ideally want to keep the net transfer spend as close to zero as possible, as their wage bill will be higher than the parachute payments they receive.  If things don't go as they plan this season then they will probably sell players next summer, which would balance things out for FFP and also cash flow, so the transfer of Wilson then will be fine.
    • https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/cardiff-city-youngster-who-really-21140778 If I was a Cardiff fan I'd read those paragraph's as Brown will probably be gone and Boro's rejected bid wasn't far off, it would be interesting if we sign him AND Kean Bryan. It would definitely add some depth to our left side especially if we're looking to play 5 at the back more often than not.
    • “He is really looking forward to moving to Middlesbrough or the mighty Boro I hear they are called. They have a history with South America and are the best at samba outside of Rio De Janerio is my understanding. Personal details are sorted when they added weekly Parmo’s to his salary can’t wait to do the lambada in the Claggy Mac with the pretty girls.  On the pitch he plays midfield but doesn’t like running So Mr Warnock style of play is perfect as they tend to bypass that part of the pitch most of the time “  **From Google Translate ** Take it as true and please don’t fact check it👍
