Glad he see's that and well done for admitting that he really did have a poor season.

I remember when he got his one and only goal so early in the season I though great he is going to contribute so much, but little did we know and it was a shame to see the effect it had on Brunnners!

We all knew what we were getting with Flint. He's an average centre back who usually makes himself worth it by popping up with nearly double figures in goals. 

I'd sell but his value won't be great. He's getting on and he will be on a good contract to.

Hopefully with a more attacking style of play his goal return comes back next season.

We're trying to offload for peanuts because we made so many signings recently that we overpaid for and are currently overpaying.  It's going to be a struggle to get rid of a lot of them so being prepared to let them go cheaply is one way of trying to encourage prospective buyers.  I reckon we'll end up paying the wages of some players we sell, if we end up selling them at all that is.

Really we could do with pulis taking over an upper mid table championship team so we can flog off some of our *** to him. He’d have ‘rudy’ and ‘flinty’ I think.

Why those that authorised the purchases are still in a job I don't know. They are clearly unfit for the job.

Maybe it’s the one person that can’t be sacked who’s at fault?

honestly there’s literally no other explanation.

Most of those we desperately wan rid of only have one year left on their contracts apart from Braithwaite. This means we cant demand much for them but also means we will soon be rid of them as well.

It has all the hallmarks of the start of the Mowbray era, we were stuck with the Strachan buys who were overpaid and not contributing enough on the pitch. 

It feels like we need to shift half of the current squad before we start again, I think Woodgate is the new Mowbray who'll be used as the fall guy while the club rebalance the books. 

You wonder if we actually learnt anything from the Strachan era.

Britts DR Congo out of AFCON. Lost on pens. Britt did not take one as he was subbed off at ET. 26 days left before Luton so enough time I hope for him to rest up and be involved.

Did Britt have holidays before afcon or is he still due to be away?

He posted lots of holiday pics so I would guess he did go away already yeah.

    • I reckon the championship restart be a week later but the fixture schedule is gonna be ridiculous!
    • Or maybe there won’t be one. We can’t keep everything under lockdown until the virus is completely gone or there is a 100% cure. Obviously money is a question because a lot of jobs depend on the football industry but the professional sport itself is a very safe environment for everyone that’s in it.  The governments around Europe are simply starting various businesses up that is deemed safe and professional football behind closed doors isn’t dangerous in any way. 
    • I suspect much of  the league is going to be in a similar position. We're quite lucky to have so many players running out of contract just as this economic crash is coming. I can see most of the league desperately trying to cut their wage bills.  Biggest downside is no one will be willing to spend money on Britt.
    • I would have said they were on a revival before the season was stopped. They were sixth in the form table over the last six matches. That was what seemed strange about the previous manager leaving - unless they had already lined Nathan Jones up to return? So  it could go either way for them. I guess for all clubs it’s like a new season starting, what with long term injured players returning and the fact that some players seem to start a new season quickly whilst others take time to get their form and settle in.
    • Haha, just wait until the inevitable second wave hits us. Some serious questions will be asked.
