Feel sorry for Payero because he really doesn’t seem to have been given a chance, but neither of our last two managers have rated him so maybe they’re right?? 

Looks like the Head of Recruitment we had over summer (Payero, JLS and Sporar) maybe hasn’t uncovered the gems we were hoping for. Is this why he’s already been replaced with that guy from Swansea (was it?) 

Andy Scott went to Nottingham Forest instead.

Lumley?

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

I didn’t realise that! Thanks. So still the same recruitment team? I think @Lurkersaid the guy we had in place was very well regarded and had been with us a season or so? Seems strange to replace him so soon

If I recall Lurker was talking about the analysis at the club. This Scott was coming in as head of recruitment to work under the other Scott.

In case this interest anyone following the Grant discussions, don’t know if the figures are correct but it makes sense:

Maybe accurate or maybe not.  Using these figures - top 3 overpaid?  top 3 underpaid?

I'd say despite his pay cut Howson is overpaid, Hall is overpaid, Siliki due to not getting anywhere near first team (I know Payero doesn't but he at least retains some value in resale)

Underpaid - Fry, Tav and Jones

It doesn't include any January signings but noteworthy that of the top 11 earners, only 5 are first team regulars and Hernandez has been moved on.

Isiah Jones is on urchin wages.

He’s just signed a new contract though, hasn’t he?

Crooks would need to move to Howson’s spot for Payero to get a game I think. He did well there under Warnock for a couple of games but he’s in such good form with Jones on the right I don’t think it will happen. 

Hasn't crooks said he prefers to play the defensive position as well? If you put mcgree at LWB and payero at RM and crooks as DM wouldnt that sound like your most dynamic midfield? All round pegs in round holes

Why move Crooks when him and Jones are the only good thing in attack?

I think the one caveat to the McGree/Payero conversation is who is replaced.  McGree for Tav I think is the obvious sub, left foot for left foot, but if it's McGree for Crooks then that speaks volumes about Payero and his future

Hope he still has a future here, I think last night he just wanted strikers on rather than midfielders

Jones x Payero might be even better? Might as well give it a go and if its not working it can be fixed by one sub

Guys just moving people around is like changing chairs on the Titanic.  We actually need the equivalent of a cycling team's "road captain" for those occasions like last night when our oodles of talent is being stifled

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
