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

    • It wasn't just a few minutes. I'm pretty sure he got more time than Bahamboula did on the pitch for us didn't he? That was someone who seemed to have the consensus of the fans that he was worth a go for the small fee we had to pay. Paterson didn't look influential, he didn't look fit, he was bang average. 
    • Given Warnock's apparent opinions on fitness and his performances in those friendlies, I'm not at all shocked that we didn't sign him and I'm still relatively glad we didn't. He's not setting the league alight every week just as his team isn't and really, whose place does he take in the team? Watmore? Tav? Hernandez? Jones? I'm not sure I'd swap any of those players with Paterson.  Sounds like he was influential today and scored a cracking goal? Good for him. But he's done that before we had the chance to sign him too, not sure why it would change many opinions on whether we should have brought him in. 
    • So any of those players could have been sat on our bench yesterday but instead we only named six subs, including the non-league player who hasn't looked ready for this level, who gets in for no other reason than Warnock signed him.  No wonder they called themselves Warnock's rejects.   It must be utterly deflating to play for this club unless you're one of the favoured ones.  One of the least professionally run football clubs in the country.
