Just a thought, have WE pulled the plug on Saliki as opposed to him choosing Alaves over us, because we know we'll run out of time to make the deal before the transfer window shuts and we'd rather focus on getting domestic signings in instead?

Or am I just clutching at straws that yet another player chose elsewhere over us?

Well so far the dutch lad has chosen top flight french team over a second tier England team and if Saliki chooses Alaves he would rather play in La Liga over the championship so imo it is nothing to worry about.
 

At least shows we are targeting good players and possibly players above our current level

My worry with Burke is he has a history of moving for hefty transfer fees and I can't imagine him moving for less than 4/5 million. I get the feeling he might be the player who Warnock was saying he'd love to have etc when he was notified of them being available.

With the injury record of Watmore/Ameobi and to some extent Burke I suspect we might see a fair amount of Crooks and Spence in wide positions this season if Burke's the only wide signing we make.

His last move was a swap deal so technically no money or anything owed to West Brom, which means easier to cut losses

To be fair that ties in with what Warnock said in the press conference but he says a lot of garbage, so hard to tell

🤣.... Christ .. within a few hours not checking, we're not getting this Siliki (sp?), now?? No longer surprising, entirely used to it. 

Just waiting for Sporar to mess up last minute on deadline day now. 

I'll just pretend it's a few year back and Burke is a decent looking signing 🤣

Perhaps we should just stop punching above our weight and go for more lads from non-league and forget about this window once and for all. It's done my head in. 

I wasn't optimistic about it anyway, but to expect a top six challenge with what we have right now is crackers really. I'll look forward to another season of finishing tenth, then I'm hoping this fella from Norwich is going to start getting us some gems in and the real work starts. 

I know who I'd love next in as manager but we can leave that discussion until end of the season. Haha

With the window starting to close and Joe Bennett looking very much like the back up Left Back along with his injury issues and Ameobi already sending in his sick notes am I the only one thinking Coulson to Ipswich, Why? 

I never rated Bennett when he was here and nothing since has changed that opinion but now that he is getting on and has questionable fitness why on Earth would you sign him? Even more perplexing is that given a choice between Bennett and  Coulson or even Coulson or Ameobi come to that, it makes more sense to me to pick Coulson surely. If we are talking a top class LB or LW then fine but I don't rate either of them and whilst Coulson may not be the finished article he does at least stay reasonably fit.

This coming season is already leaving me massively underwhelmed not helped by the Derby "performance" and I use the word "performance" very liberally.

Listening to Warnock today, he indicated that, with the signings so far, the squad is not good enough to go up. He said that he has never known it so hard to get deals over the line. He knows we need left side cover and forward signings before Tuesday so let’s hope we can get them in. 😬

Warnock has signed 20 players in 14 months with 2 or 3 more to come in. So why does he think the squad isn't good enough to get promoted?

Now that we have lost our big money (STAR!) strikers at the end of the season, how many forwards has he signed who are still here? (Loans)! If Uche eh eh and Crooks get injured, with Whatmore’s injury history, who will play up front? It is the 2 or 3 more coming in, that you mention, who are the key. 👍

    • All big games really.  We're in the hunt so the pressure is on!  Great to see.
    • This is the kind of thinking we need at this football club. Seriously though, if you're going to do stuff like this then it should be lots of players of the past, not just Ugo, although I get the reason for him being mentioned specifically.  Most players aren't going to get statues at the ground like Mannion, and Hardwick, it'd be nice to have something for lots of players, and a space for players in the future as well.
    • Give over mate.  You know what I'm talking about, you've seen it as others have.  At least one of the bloody mods was doing it as well.  Is this how it's going to be now, mods acting dumb when things get called out? Can I ask a question, is it possible in your opinion, that some people will end up being reported more than others, but that the reports might not have any real merit to them?  Genuine question.
    • The results today were pretty decent again. If we beat Blackburn on Monday then we're only 4 points behind 2nd placed Bournemouth, who are on poor form and have looked awful for the past two months. QPR are in great form at the moment so seem to be in with a shot of 2nd spot.
    • As long as the people who were upset with the comments were similarly upset with anti English comments we've had from some of our Irish members then I actually don't have an issue with them complaining.  But I'd bet all the money I have that not one of those people complained when it was going in that direction.  That's the crux of it to me, the offensive behaviour only goes one way, and the mods have never stepped in previously to do a thing about it, whatever is now being claimed.  They decided to step in this time though, and I'm certain that it was because it was me.  As it was pointed out to me privately some time ago, lots of people are just waiting for me to slip up and cross the line, and unfortunately, some of those people are mods 🤷‍♂️
