Once again we're struggling to identify a black guy in a photo. Didnt we do this with a picture of Yannick Bolasie at Rockliffe last year? ?

Speak for yourself.  I identified him perfectly well just as soon as I knew who it was ??

Haha. Think there was also confusion when Martina from Everton was apparently pictured on our training pitch.

I hope in the frenzy of the last two weeks of the window that we hold onto Fry, bring in a winger, loan a winger and try to get a settled team into the final friendlies.  Out of curiosity, who would any of you put forward as a player capable of playing in Clayton’s position currently at the club?  I only ask because he may get injured or may not be good enough in the new system.  Cheers.

You would think McNair but I'm not sure he has the tactical discipline to play a holding/shielding role.

Flint is all done and announced some point today. 4.2 up to 6 with promotion bonus and over 10 goals this season bonus. 50% will be made available for wages/ transfer.

Just hope he doesn't score any of those 10 goals against us but it'd be nice to have that bonus money.

50% for transfers is better than nothing, I guess.

Think the club have done well there. Assuming we haven't paid any of the addons to Bristol that's a chance for us to actually make money on a 30 year old cb who's had a terrible season.

So that’ll be a flat £4.2m then.

    • So important.  Wilder totally justified in his comments about Crooks being first choice and Payero having that as a barrier.  But the importance of team spirit and bond will be crucial.  Injuries/suspensions will likely come into play and feel for the first time in a while we are trying to ensure we have cover in all areas of the pitch that have the attributes we highlight as being required for them. 
    • I wouldn't equate the difference between our combined abilities from season start to end, within our club from the top down, to being like they were on performance enhancing drugs compared to us. They cheated but I don't think that suddenly made them or their squad in any way better than ours. That summer window was quite possibly the worst we've seen since relegation, too. There is so much about that year that fills me with dread to think about because we handled it so badly from start to end. Derby spending beyond their means didn't, or perhaps shouldn't have, affected us anywhere near as much as we seem to claim it has.
    • Clearly Payero does feel involved and that bodes so well, even Paddy went up to him. Real bond developing it seems
    • Not sure I agree with that. If it was a race and we were leading Derby until the final lap and then tripped over our own shoelaces, and that that's the only reason they finished ahead of us, obviously it's our fault that we didn't beat them. But if it then turned out that Derby were on performance enhancing drugs they'd have been disqualified even though it was ultimately our own actions that cost us the race. Obviously their massive coordinated cheating of FFP would be the performance enhancing drugs.   Pulis *** up massively to cost us a play-off spot that looked assured, but the only team that was even close to us outside of the top 5 was a Derby side that cheated consistently. Even after our 6 defeats in a row, the team in 8th finished 3 points behind us, the team in 9th was 7 points behind.
    • Jordan had said he'd spoken to people at all ends, I think. Gibson, Morris and the administrator. He seems to count all as either decent people or friends but had stuff to say about Morris' handling of it. He also said knowing Gibson as long as he has, he wouldn't make a fuss about something were there not some justification for it. For me personally, the big thing is looking back at the season in question. Thinking we should be due any kind of compensation for that season is hard. It entirely fits in with the narrative Pulis had after his last game, the whole 'finishing 7th better than 5th the year before'. I have a hard time accepting that finish was anything but our own fault but in fighting this case, we are saying it is in some way Derby's because of their cheating. I don't honestly think there's enough there in sporting terms to suggest they put themselves in a significantly difficult position to best and Pulis was certainly getting paid enough to justify him doing better with the squad we had. But that's just the emotional side of it for me. Reading what Rob Nichols told us and what Jordan has said certainly opens your eyes to how essentially evil the situation remains from a Derby perspective. I still hate Morris for what he's done and I hate the idea they could fight their way out of their situation this season or even look remotely rosy next season. I don't want them to disappear, I'll feel some sense of relief if/when they get bought. But so long as they reach that stage, I'll have them under my own 'intense scrutiny'.
