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.

    • Ha! Yes - Warnock doesn't strike me as a "Golden Thread" kind of guy. I guess the idea had to be abandoned once he was brought in. But other clubs have made similar philosophies work for them and I'd hope it is resurrected in the near future. Though maybe, as you say, our chairman and board simply aren't smart enough to see the benefits.  
    • Do you have a link? You probably posted it earlier but I'm very lazy 
    • I think the fact that Bevington left within months of that woodgate press conference and then woodgate was replaced with Warnock a couple of months after that shows that it was likely a difference in philosophy between the chairman and him. I could be wrong but knowing the personality of Gibson it just seems that that was how it probably went. 
    • Ha ha No I was the one who was shaking his head at the comment! Would be good to get your opinions on the station 👍👍. I was the one who was blasting Warnock
