I believe everyone is available it all comes down to the money on offer. 

I agree but i cant see big money being offered for him.

Dwight Gayle deal collapsed as we have made surprise progress on 2 strikers and we pulled the plug.( both played uk last year ). Spence deal preventing finalising them both.  Could be another big exit

We’re close to signing Gayle, it’s almost done.

Expect us to get Gyokeres after Spence goes. Just been told it’s a large part of the fee going on him.    No idea on either fee though

According to reports today with Derby Mel Morris paid Steve Gibson £3m compensation.

I think it was @Lurker who said we made around £1.8m from the FA Cup game with Manchester United.

How much did we make from the Tottenham & Chelsea cup games? I know we donated our gate money from the Chelsea game to the Ukraine appeal but assume we still got the TV money from that match. 

The total amount made should cover some transfer fees.

Pretty sure we won’t get anything near £1.8m from Man U game. I know we got 45% and MU revenue per game is about £4m, so I can see where figure comes from. This includes all revenue though - gate receipts, programmes, food and drink, hospitality tickets, etc. They make a fortune from hospitality and food and drink. Only the basic gate receipts get shared, so if you charge £150 for a lounge and dinner  ticket and match seat, only the match ticket basic price - say £50 to £60 - gets included in the gate receipts for sharing. MU keep all the hospitality receipts and food and drink etc. Also, the expenses of stewards and security, plus police etc all gets deducted before any sharing.  I would reckon on £2m to be shared - around £900k for us from that game. Maybe £1.5m overall given we donated the Chelsea gate receipts.

Don't disagree, hence I said earlier if we get offered our money back for McNair we'd take it. We can get an improvement at CB imo with cash to spare.

Something else to consider about McNair is he is possibly/probably the biggest wage earner at the club now? Signed for a decent fee when we were still splashing the cash a little.

Signed a contract extension under Warnock when we were not splashing the cash as much. Will still be one of highest earners but not anything club cannot handle.

Plus he probably the most “wilder type” player we have in terms of suitability to this system and his versatility.

I think it will take a bid of £7m for us to consider selling him given he about to enter his prime years.

His versatility is very useful but primarily as a central defender I think the most important job is being able to defend well before we start worrying about overlapping and spraying passes about. We are going to need to move him out of defence at least as a first choice cb if we want to challenge next season. He's not good enough defensively to be playing there week in week out. I honestly think he will take over from howson next season and I'm fine with that I think he will be very good once he settles in that position he's got every attribute needed to be.

Dont see how Lenihan fits in to our defence given he right footed and we got Dijk, Paddy and Fry for them 2 positions.

However,  seeing as WBA are interested maybe Matt Clarke of Brighton could be an option if WBA dont want him. He a left footed CB who we are are clearly very aware of given he was at the centre of our initial fall out with Derby

Matt Clarke? He's rubbish. No thanks

When I seen him he has looked good. Injury record looks suspect mind. Player of season at Derby when he was on loan to them and Bruce labelled him “WBA best player during my time here”.

Out of interest who was the last player that pleasantly surprised you despite you dreading when they were linked and eventually signed?

 

I thought Amobi would have had loads of bad games last season but to his credit did not have one bad game.

Here's the video we shouldn't show to people we're trying to sell Lumley to 😂 

I still cant get over how we dumped man utd out the cup away with him in goal, playing as bad he can 

someone should forward over bruno's miss to the new manager just to make sure he gets released

It's probably just my terrible memory, but I don't remember Bettinelli making anywhere near as many mistakes as Lumley.

He just didn't make any saves.

I'd genuinely probably go Bettinelli, even though they're both terrible and I'd argue Bettinelli was worse at making saves.

i'd bench who ever im forced to pick and put mcnair in there, was easily our best keeper all season, guy can play anywhere

I always wonder whether someone at the club does check forums etc. to see if a name crops up or something that they may not have thought about.

I do imagine that Scott and co. have went through an extremely large list of players, especially the free agents this year. I don’t think in this day and age clubs would miss out on players due to not knowing about them, but instead just not rating them or think they fit into there criteria.

would probably explain why the recruitment usually don't work out lol
