I’m still baffled why Gibson thought it was sensible to spend so much money on Assombalonga, Braithwaite & Fletcher when we already had Bamford & Gestede (less said about him the better)  here after relegation. Instead of building a creative team around Bamford, Gibson wasted £30 million+ in transfer fees plus god knows what on wages - £4.5 million a season for 4 years? - on them inferior players which created the financial pressure to sell Bamford for a knock down price just a season later. That debacle sums up Gibson’s terrible, naive decision-making. It makes me want to bang my head against a wall in frustration.

Please delete this post.  If someone from the club reads it they might find it disrespectful 🤭

F***ING PULIS

Bamford, Traore (and Harrison) were beyond what we could attract at this club, and he *** them up against the wall. 

C**T

Argh it makes me so mad thinking about what we lost and what we could have had.

Delighted Adama and Paddy are doing so well though. 

Imagine if we’d kept Stuani too!

Just think of the team he could have put out when he first came if he could just get the most out of the players he had.

Randolph

Fabio ayala gibson friend

Howson Clayton besic

Adama Bamford Braithwaite

With Harrison, britt, leadbitter, fry, Fletcher, shotton, downing all on the bench. Could have still had Christie too if he fancied him. And you'll still find people who will say he did a good job here. That squad is better than anything in this league atm, potentially any squad I've seen in the league since. Its criminal he didn't make a better attempt at being promoted the money he was on and resources he had.

It annoys me we got Harrison on loan for 2 year deal in the January. But Pulis benched him hardly got any game time. As Pulis rather have Fletcher or Bamford on wing as play the actual winger.  So he decided to change his mind and go to Leeds instead where he has gotten to play every week and grown into a fab player. 

I know and we hear similar things from members about Johnson!

To be fair, pulis was the making of traore. Monk and Aitor weren't able to manage him. 

 

The rest of the team he f***** up though!

I think only Karanka out of all of our managers really rated Bamford. And even he wouldn’t play him in the Premier League. 
Monk bought players to play instead of Bamford. Pulis clearly didn’t want him. I can’t believe he didn’t bring him straight back in after his couple of games out due to concussion. 
He’s thriving under a manager who rates him and in a team where he’s the no.1 up front. If Pulis had kept him he’d have been on the bench.

From today’s DM

PFA WIND-UP THREAT TO CHAMPIONSHIP GIANT  

The PFA have threatened a leading Championship club with a winding-up order in a dispute over their failure to pay severance money to out-of-contract players. 

The club in question chose not to pay the final month’s salary due last July on a point of principle, as both players refused to appear for the first team during Project Restart despite having earned over £10million in wages at the club. 

The PFA have taken up their fight to get their missing wages, but despite the threat of a winding-up petition the matter is set to be decided by an employment tribunal.
 

did wonder at first if it was Boro, - Ayala and Gestede, but I don’t think Gestede actually refused to play during June, did he? He only said he wouldn’t play after end of contract. ( And Ayala said he was injured)
Only club I remember where players actually refused to play during June was Charlton, but it can’t be them .

We weren’t close to being a leading championship club. But surely you can’t put a company out of business due to missing wages without any negotiations/trials. It’ll be through a tribunal and a compromise will be reached. Are the clubs in England organized like the players are in the players union? Does the EFL count as an employers union?

English Law does, I believe, allow a creditor to issue a winding up order over unpaid debts (over a certain amount). It is then up to the debtor to pay up or prove in court the debt isn’t due. So a  winding up order application does have to go to court. It’s a threat  by the PFA - on behalf of a couple of its members - to try to force the issue. If it goes to employment tribunal presumably their decision will be binding though and force either the club to accept the liability and stump up, or the PFA to drop the threat.

PFA will be pushing this really hard though, as players wages are always a preferential creditor, in sense that if a club doesn’t pay them, the club can be kicked out of league. They won’t want anything threatening that.

It was reported in June that Sheffield Wednesday didn't pay their players, but I think that may have been more due to (at the time) the ongoing EFL investigation into their accounts. But not sure if after the investigation they then did pay the players, so could potentially add them to the mix too.

From the quote you've posted it sounds like the club in question are refusing to pay on the basis of the players refusing to play, rather than the club not having the funds to pay. The headline does say "Threat" which I think this is exactly what this is, I can't see a club being wound up on the basis of 2 players (who didn't play) not being paid.

As you've said I think it's much more likely to go the route of an employment tribunal. It seems like it'll go down to interpretation of the players contracts etc. Be interested to see if anything else comes out in the next few weeks.

It’s an interesting question though regarding player power. Can they really expect to be paid if they refuse to play? I hope not.

    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
    • Classic Dani 🤦‍♂️
    • My comment about the £20K a week contracts was in response to Grimsby Boro's revelation that over 150 championship players are to be out of contract in the summer meaning that those players whose contracts are ending will be highly unlikely to find new suitors willing to meet let alone exceed their existing deals. The implication being that Boro and other cash struck clubs could pick up  players this summer at a lot lower cost than they are presently being paid or indeed may be offered elsewhere if they are presently at Boro. Nobody likes to see anyone down on their uppers. Whether you earn £200 a week or £20,000 we all live, budget and mortgage within our means. For me personally it has been heart breaking to see the Maserati, Lambo and prancing horse all repossessed along with the 70 foot Yacht anchored in Monaco. The penthouse in Vegas is also going for a song if anyone has the odd £2.5M spare before the bailiffs move in. At this rate I'll end up in a four bed detached in Ingleby with a Mondeo on the drive. As I type the wife's red soled shoes are up on ebay and the girlfriend's Rolex is on Gumtree. I just hope the mistress can hack the Travelodge instead of the Grosvenor.
