David Stockdale has signed for Birmingham.

 

I thought he was homesick, so then he signs for a club not in his hometown?

What? He must be getting well paid, is Harry splashing the cash already?!

Birmingham is closer to Leeds than Brighton is, to be fair.

Wow Birmingham is an interesting choice.

 

I wonder if that indicates we didn't show any interest, or maybe 'Arry is splashing some dough around that we wouldn't.

 

That's actually a bit lame, I wanted Stockdale :(

I'm quite keen to give Ripley a chance this year. Just look at Pickford at Sunderland, give them a chance.

 

Assombalonga would be a real statement. Anyone else get a feeling Bamford might not feature as much this year as most people think he will?

Yes, I can´t see Bamford playing a major role here next season. He´s a decent backup, but I have my doubts if he can ever make it at a higher level than the championship.

 

As for Ripley, I agree that he should be given the chance, but I feel it will be too big of a gamble to rely on him as first choice keeper. We need to bring in someone more experienced if it does not work out.

Think Bamford will have a major role. Last time he was down here he was player of the year and now he has an even bigger point to prove. And from the demands Monk has to his players Bamford should fit right in. Professional, hard working and dedicated.

He was outstanding for us last time. Needs a massive shot of confidence, but there's no doubting his potential ability and he seems determined.

But...we're in the Championship?

We spent a fair old whack of money on Bamford, with, I assume, an eye on the Championship (it certainly can't have been to play in the Premier League because he barely got a look-in). It would be baffling to also leave him out now.

    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
    • Apologies when I said 1/4 of the creditors, I was meaning 25p out of the £. I should have made that clearer. In terms of our situation in 1986 I'm not too well versed with the details (as it was before my time). But I'm pretty sure we were going into Liquidation rather than administration.  I also imagine that the EFL regulations/rules have been updated since 1986.  
    • As far as I can tell it's the only argument that they can even try to make, and even that's weak AF.
