Fletcher is close to signing a new contract.

Can’t believe that people on here are condemning a possible signing because of rumours that he dealt drugs.    One thing or squad is crying out for is someone that can distribute well 😳

some youngster we missed out on. One for future threads along with matic

I'm no Brexiteer but the way this article starts by framing the choice of being between us, Burnley and Bayern Munich in any way related to Brexit is pretty embarrassing.

It’s really poor journalism.

Doesn’t brexit just limit the number of under 18s you can sign to 3 a window? So we could of signed him because we signed no one else

It looks like going on trial and then signing for Bayern has only just happened - it’s dated yesterday, so maybe it was only over last month that he showed enough to interest Bayern. 
Even at under 18, I assume Burnley or us could only have signed him during the transfer window? In other words over a month ago. So maybe the article wasn’t totally off the mark.

I don't think that's true, no. EU transfers essentially follow the same rules as non-EU transfers now because they need work permits to play in this country now. We can't sign under-18s at all any more and EU teams can't sign them from us either.

So we can't sign under 18s. No matter their age we can't sign anyone without a GBE and we can't sign more than 6 players who need a GBE in one season. A GBE is awarded on a point-based system that judges things like international caps, FIFA ranking of their country and on a domestic level, the strength of the league and the number of appearances they've made in it.

We can't sign under-18s so our interest in him was all but pointless. I think the best thing we can do is to put in place an agreement to sign them when they turn 18 and even then, we'd have to hope they didn't lose the criteria to get a work permit in that time so it seems a pointless move.

    • WOnder if this will be with immediate effect. Football is in absolute turmoil
    • The Carlisle News & Star have just published an article on the ESL which sums it up rather nicely...  
    • I don't know whether you've misunderstood my post or whether I have made my point very well, but let me make one thing clear. I don't think anything about this proposal is good, its a disgrace and I'd be over the moon if the 6 of them were turfed out for good.  What I was saying is that all this moral outrage should have been happening years ago. The game that most of us grew up loving has been gradually eroded over the last few decades. It isn't about the fans or sporting integrity at the top, its about pure greed and has been for years.  Just because the current system is better than the new proposed system it doesn't mean I should be happy with it. To counter a few of your examples, to take Hartlepool as a club, I can remember a time where Wimbledon climbed up the pyramid and fans of clubs that size could always dream of doing the same. That will never happen now.  You mention Leicester (I knew someone would use them as an example). They won the lottery when a billionaire bought them and they broke FFP rules to get promoted. How many clubs have sold their souls to foreign owners and got themselves into debt trying to do a Leicester. Its not a good model to try and copy really.  Finally, you ask me why I bother. Well its in the blood isn't it? There's no logic behind it but the majority of the magic has gone from the game. I grew up watching us be crap in the 80s but even then you could dream about finding a good manager, and crop of good young players and doing what Forest did under Clough. Now its either find a billionaire or simply exist.
