So if the rumours were correct about West Ham saying they'd sell him to us for whatever it was then they were just trying to have our eyes out again as they did with Fletcher?  The swines!

Maybe they forgot we’d sacked monk

Did you find out who they were?

No mate was never given any names.... dubious the link was even a credible one

Spill

Not a lot to spill mate. Thoughts are that it will get a lot worse before it gets better. Not info just personal opinion.

On the topic of Braithwaite... has anyone watched the training video uploaded today, know its only small clips but he looks a couple of levels above anyone else. If only we could facilitate keeping him somehow, as he really has the talent when playing in a good footballing side.

I did watch it, I'm not sure who it is but at one point he absolutely breaks a defenders ankles with a quick little turn. It was beautiful.

If he's just gonna turn off by September as I'd expect, I'd prefer we used his talent to get rid of him though, I don't think him alone is going to make us challenge for anything significant so the sooner he's off the wage bill the better. Woody is doing right by making him look like the player he is and not publicly calling him out for having previously had no commitment to our cause, whether he's speaking truthfully or not. It might leave some looking ruefully at what we've lost but in all honesty, we lost him a long time ago, we've just been paying for him ever since.

Graeme Bailey knows absolutely nothing by the way 

He knew about Woodgate months before it happened and insisted it was happening all the way upto the announcement.

That was hardly a secret though. Most of us on here could see it coming 6 months ago.

    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees. 
    • Imagine complaining that you earned enough to invest into things like property so you can't afford to lose a quid of your huge wages. The poor sods. Must be awful having to downgrade your car or house to a smaller one when something doesn't work out as planned.
