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 😂).

Wing has talent - you don't score as many goals from distance as he does without natural skill. Whether anyone can coach the rest of his game up to an acceptable standard is debatable - particularly passing - but Warnock has a better chance than anyone of developing whatever potential he has.

Remember people insisted Traore was a headless chicken, shouldn't be a footballer, was never going to learn at Boro if he hadn't learned at Barcelona, etc. I know Wing isn't even in the same stratosphere in terms of raw talent, but he could be a useful impact sub as the opposition tire, and he gives defenders a new threat to worry about in terms of shooting from range, which the rest of our squad is pretty awful at.

I'd like to see Warnock work on Wing's overall play this season and then take stock next year. If we really couldn't sell him even at that point, we could always release him at the end of his contract.

I agree you make a good case but Wing is attacking midfielder who should have credentials including reading the state of play, passing and receiving and he lacks consistency in all departments. NW over time may get the best out of him but does he want to invest in a guy who can’t pass especially as he wants four strikers on the books.

I know I'm starting to doubt it now like 

Highly doubt Warnock would’ve talked about it openly if it wasn’t a done deal. 

It’s a possibility he’s tested positive for the virus and is having to isolate

Or its just no rush to announce it and we're tying up the lose details. Even the gazette are saying its going through at some point this week. 

i'd guess that the players not on international duty have a few days off, so no rush as long as it's all sorted for the next team training session

Victor Moses is probably available on loan, perfect for RWB.

Would be nice if Chelsea sent him and Baba our way for a small wage contribution

That would be unreal. Unlikely. But warnock give him his 1st chance at palace and raves about him in his book

    • aah Fischer, id completely fogot about him, unremarkable really,considering that he will go down asone of our most forgettable players in history.it would be nice if you could point to a moment in a game and say ....remember fischer doing this or that.........but you cant, he was totally anonymous. hewill go down in the same list as trevor senior in that respect. or boersma,bent, etc etc etc  its a long list believe me.
    • I do have odd YouTube habits 😂  but I saw this when it was first released and it has burned itself into my Psyche. So if I have to suffer then all you guys have to also 😜 
    • Come on AR, surely everyone already knew about this masterpiece?! It was a big thing when they first did it!
    • They don't seem overly optimistic, do they? Which I guess should give us hope of getting a result. Had to laugh at Mr Optimist's post: "I only hope that by mid-afternoon I am listening to a gracious post-match interview from the fair and balanced (sack of chips on each shoulder) Mr Warnock, who is lamenting the performance of the referee and linesmen… “I don’t know how he has missed it if I am being honest”, “I thought we had complete control of the game up until that point”, “I’m not going to criticise the lads because they have given their all, but to not come away with 3 points due to incompetency like that, we’ll, I’m not going to say any more or I will get myself in to trouble, but…..” They know him well... 😂   I heard your Reading Festival is more book oriented... 🤔🤓
