Recommended Posts

Disappointing we didn’t get anyone in. We’re obviously skint so no big surprise. Not at all fussed about rahman though.

We could of gotten both Rose and Bolasie in but weren't prepared to pay I think it comes down to.

Anyone know how long YB has left on his contract? Whats the odds of it being terminated and picking him up on a free 😂🤏

Should have been terminated before the original deadline for that to happen.

Wait until we get beat tomorrow and this forum will go into meltdown again! 😂

I'm trying to look at the positives in the summer recruitment... apart from a Left footed CB/LB I think we have done extremely done good business given the financial difficulties.

Bolasie would of certainly topped that off but given that we have got rid of some big earners and dead wood and brought Roberts and Akpom in, I think we have certainly improved. 

Yes we are a few injuries away from a crisis but the January transfer is literally only 10 weeks away and we have another international in between then.

I believe we will be looking at Niasse but not sure we need another unless Fletcher is worse than 1st feared.

Keep the faith ... UTB

PS whoever felt confident in Bausor going into the last day of the window is a complete idiot.

If it makes you feel better I had a conversation with a member of the Villa coaching staff regarding Mr Bolasie, it went something like this" when he came here I was really excited about working with him, I rapidly realised he was only here for the money". Apparently towards the end of his loan with Villa he was barely on speaking terms with the other players. So that was a bullet dodged then !

I'm always confident in Bausor.

Shame as they signed him in 2016, so he surely is in his last year of his contract now. Heres hoping we land him in january.

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
