@YusufBoro good work my friend. I enjoy watching them. Have you managed to get any ITK transfer news for us through doing these interviews? If not I will set you a challenge of finding us at least one name we are after before your last interview. Haha

Saville really likes Jed Wallace but that was edited out ūüĎÄ

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today ūü§£ūü§£ūü§£

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

I knew you would come through mate.¬†I also developed a liking for Jed Wallace after checking his stats over the weekend. He is fairly productive. Though am sure we will knock that out of him if we sign him ūüėä

But if we did sign him that could be rather confusing if we ended up with Jed and Djed on the pitch...

Hopefully we get a decent offer for Djed as i prefer Dijksteel and Fisher ahead of Djed. I feel he a disposable asset.

NW fined £7k for his post match comments

All things considered he'll probably feel its money well spent.¬†ūüėČ

 

Sometimes things just have to be said.

I reckon there'll be a couple of players coming in this morning saying they'll chuck something towards that. Was speaking for the dressing room and a lot of fans at the time.

Saville starts for NI in they friendly v USA. Paddy rested.

Obviously main thing is Paddy is likely to be playing on Wednesday less than 48hrs before our away game v Bournemouth.

Albeit in November they manager decided to play Paddy in all 3 games during the international week which included starting him in a total dead rubber so at least thats not happened this time.

At the risk of sounding ungrateful, that seems rather like spitting on a forest fire, when you consider how much debt clubs will have racked up over the last year or so. Even if it comes on top of the PL's £200m loan deal.

At most it'll help clubs that are perilously close to liquidation or struggling to pay their staff, but thats about it.

It'll keep the wolves from the door for a bit, but I wonder what the repayment terms are - i.e. how soon and whether it has to be in full, or in instalments? Having to pay off debts when you're struggling to make money isn't all that helpful.

Under 18s into the last 8 of the FA youth Cup.

What kind of football do our youth teams play mate? I'm just wondering if there's any kind of continuity between the first team and the youth teams like was talked about a few years ago or do we try to play a bit more football? Seems to be working pretty well at the moment whatever were doing.

    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong,¬†but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look¬†stifled and¬†devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward,¬†the striker¬† with the best heading ability¬†is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had¬†a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.¬†¬†
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s¬†by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham¬†and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch,¬†I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term¬†and¬†long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person.¬†People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
    • @wilsoncgp¬†agree with everything you said. Just seems to me that¬†he loves to whinge about how each club dealt with him ‚Äúunprofessionally‚Ä̬†upon¬†leaving them. I have no doubt Boro did probably mess him about in Pulis final yesr but he needs to weigh¬†that off woth how much good our club has done for him over the years, especially the owner who he also slagged off in that Schwarzer interview In every interview I read of his he seems to give of the vibe of there being a sense of self-entitlement with him. Just my opinion and others might see him differently
