The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

Got to say credit where credit is due, I’m hugely impressed with the business we have done so far. The fact that other clubs were willing to pay a higher percentage of Flo’s wages but we were the

I do love our transfer rumours now they are alot more out the box and more well planned. I think we have moved to viewing player recuritment as an investment the cost isn't nattering as much.

Yes, I know its only October!

But I found this:

https://www.torcedores.com/noticias/2021/10/lateral-do-internacional-entra-na-mira-de-clubes-da-inglaterra-e-italia

We are apparently monitoring Heitor, a 20 year old full back from Internatcional.

'The biggest enthusiast for the hiring is coach Neil Warnock who has been following the young man's career.'

*** off honestly 🤣

 

I think we are nailed on to buy a right back for 5 million Euros in January.

I would have had the same outlook if someone had told us in May we'd be signing an Argentinean prospect for 6 mil. Stranger things have happened 🤷‍♂️

And I'd point out that Warnock knew nowt at all about him before he was told about him, the same goes for this lad as well.

Hey, if we've got 5m to spend on another right back to go with all of the right backs we already have then great stuff.  Me, I'd use it on a midfielder probably, maybe even another left back but 20 year old right backs from Brazil do make a lot of sense for us right now 🤔

Yeah fair, I'm sure it would be Scott going after this lad if this story is genuine. Can't imagine Warnock is an avid follower of Brazilian youth football. 🤣

Still, could be some truth to it even if they've added a load of *** about Warnock. If we sold Spence on in the summer this lad might be seen as an investment that we could turn into a profit in future. That would seem to be the model Scott would work towards anyway.

We'd need to sell Spence first though, and he's rubbish!!

Is asking wtf is going on with Sammy Ameobi appropriate on this transfer thread given he still essentially a new signing?

The last update we had from NW about 6 weeks ago was along the lines of “nobody in the medical world can tell us what is wrong with him but its his knee but not the bad knee. Its the other knee”.

To quote @Changing Times “*** off”.

I refuse to believe that the club still does not know whats wrong with him 4 months on. There is something going on there which the club are just refusing to tell us about in my view.

One of the world's great mysteries that one.

I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever

He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄

Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️

Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time."

    • Jordan had said he'd spoken to people at all ends, I think. Gibson, Morris and the administrator. He seems to count all as either decent people or friends but had stuff to say about Morris' handling of it. He also said knowing Gibson as long as he has, he wouldn't make a fuss about something were there not some justification for it. For me personally, the big thing is looking back at the season in question. Thinking we should be due any kind of compensation for that season is hard. It entirely fits in with the narrative Pulis had after his last game, the whole 'finishing 7th better than 5th the year before'. I have a hard time accepting that finish was anything but our own fault but in fighting this case, we are saying it is in some way Derby's because of their cheating. I don't honestly think there's enough there in sporting terms to suggest they put themselves in a significantly difficult position to best and Pulis was certainly getting paid enough to justify him doing better with the squad we had. But that's just the emotional side of it for me. Reading what Rob Nichols told us and what Jordan has said certainly opens your eyes to how essentially evil the situation remains from a Derby perspective. I still hate Morris for what he's done and I hate the idea they could fight their way out of their situation this season or even look remotely rosy next season. I don't want them to disappear, I'll feel some sense of relief if/when they get bought. But so long as they reach that stage, I'll have them under my own 'intense scrutiny'.
    • Love this from the cameraman, UTB.
    • Interesting... I did hear the Jordan comments but don't fully understand the technicalities of the whole Derby becoming debt-free and returning stronger thing. Was news to me that the £45m thing was *** (I guess Simon may have heard that from Steve himself...?) I just hope it doesn't dissolve into "Boro are trying to kill Derby" and we get piled on... which is the narrative they're clearly desperate to create. We all know what football fans and pundits are like and most people won't read or understand the details. I'm a Boro fan and I still admit to not fully getting some of it. 
    • Check out the love between Crooks & Payero. Makes me warm and fuzzy inside.
