Are the club trying to release fake news to weed out the leaks or something? All ITKs/people with sources are struggling big time this year

NW has plugged basically all the leaks, it's proving very difficult to hear about anything before it's publicly known right now.

Yeah I have a friend who usually gets good information and he's had absolutely nothing, it'll be refreshing if it means we get a few more in and it's quite nice to get the odd surprise

I think I've said this before, but it is possible to be ITK and still miss a lot of stuff (I know that's not what you're saying here, so this isn't a dig at you, or anyone really).

A friend of a friend works in a very good position at Preston North End. They have signed players that he has known about from the very early stages, but they have also signed players that he has only known about a couple of hours in advance.

He also sometimes gets the wrong end of the stick on stuff he gets told - he was convinced PNE were going to sign Grant Leadbitter from us a few years ago, and as far as I know they didn't even bid for him.

So if even people in high ranking roles are getting things wrong, it's no surprise that other sources are occasionally getting bad info!

Don't think alot of people realise how quick things change too. Players become available out of the blue and you have to react quick. No chance you get the time to find those out.

It depends on how much money that the wealthy owners of Wrexham offered him.

Doubt they could blow us out the water with an offer. They're rich... but they're not football rich.

For some perspective, Ryan Reynolds is reportedly worth ~$150m. Kane alone will probably go for more than that this Summer.

Well we either didnt try for him or there must be some reason such as money for him to drop down the leagues!

We bandy the word serious around as if it means something. Every bid for a player is a bid that you want to win based upon the value that the club puts on a player, otherwise why offer a deal at all. If someone else offers more than the value assigned by the club (player worth or budget) then the other club will win the deal, it's as simple as that and nothing to do with how serious the offered deal is.

Yeah, being one of the biggest names in Hollywood helps too, especially when you have the power to get your dream film made by leaking the test footage onto the internet and completely getting away with it because, well, you're Ryan Reynolds.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
