SDS, it’s Dijksteel at Rockliffe

For all those asking about these 4 players at rockcliffe just before weekend. I have done some digging appears it was bola Browne and 2 premiership loan players, sketchy with details but I believe the

I do actually care when I see a bunch of *** holes gang up on a kid on here, I'll give you that - but if you think I care what the likes of you and others think of me then you really are putting yourselves on pedastles you don't belong on. 

 

 

Enough already frankly I am fed up with this bickering as I am sure others are.

This is not a appreciation/don't like RS thread or vies versa.

Can we move on there are far more important things, boy I am sweating buckets at the moment so possibly there is some sunstroke going on within the forum.

Moderating can be such fun...………………………...NOT!

Personally I think we should have a thread devoted to just bickering. Could have someone just start off a totally daft thing and watch a huge argument break out over whether garlic sauce belongs on a kebab or something

Our wage bill must have taken a huge cut now? Downing, Braithwaite, Flint, Hugill, Mikel, Leadbitter, VLP... probably missing some others. 

 

I'm still cautiously optimistic we'll get 4-5 in and finish the window with a 'meh, pretty happy with that to be fair.' 

Our total staff (Players, Staff and matchday staff) costs for the 17/18 season were approximately £65 Million. I wouldn't be surprised if over the course of the 18/19 season we managed to reduced those costs by £12 Million - £20 Million.

But that is conjecture on my part. We won't know for certain on that until the next set of accounts are released.

Again an extra bit of conjecture the players we have released and sold this summer, plus the loanees going back I wouldn't be surprised to see that we have trimmed another £8 Million - £15 Million off the wage bill. (We won't see those figures for about 18 Months).

To add onto those reductions we have also seen Pulis and his backroom staff leave. I'm sure someone on here mentioned Pulis was our highest paid manager. So I'd imagine his wages plus his backroom staff wages would total another £3 Million - £5 Million (again speculation).

Don’t think I’ve had hostility when passing on info. Not really bothered anyway.

Braithwaite wasn’t all bad. Didn’t take what he was due for his loyalty payment. 

€5m we got

So he wasn't the villain people were trying to make him out to be - good to hear

My mate and I once argued all the way from Newcastle to Leeds about whether or not a shop-bought cheese sandwich should literally just be bread and cheese, or whether it was acceptable for it to contain mayo, marg, etc. Might provide good kindling for a 'petty arguments' thread. Other ideas: Ford or Vauxhall, should we ban buy-to-let landlords, what do you put on your chips, etc.

 

Re transfers: Now we've culled half a dozen high earners from the squad (without harming our matchday prospects, I'd have to say), it's time to see what our legendary recruitment team have been up to this summer. Over to you, chaps.

Didn’t ever think he was as bad as Pulis made him sound, any other manager and I think he would have done well, can’t blame that sort of player for not wanting to play for Pulis though

That would be too upsetting for me

Me neither - he's probably done us a favour by going out on loan - he'd probably be worthless now if he'd stayed with pulis

A conservative estimate would be that we've cut around £200k per week in playing staff wages (I think it's probably closer to £300k personally) since the end of the season, over the course of a year this is a little north of £10m.

 

Like you say, Pulis + staff have to be taken off that as well with Woody's team almost definitely being on a fraction of their Pulis hired counterparts. In theory we should now be in a pretty healthy financial position especially when the fees received are taken into account.

The ultimate arguement would surely, be whether you put milk in before the boiling water or after when making a cup of tea.

Is that up for debate? The liquid has to be boiling to allow the tea to infuse. Milk is added afterwards,

Would you put milk in a teapot?

    • I'm surprised that Gestede has actually managed 178 games in his career so I just checked and according to Wiki he has managed 284 games over his entire career which for a 32 year old isn't many. Smith at three years younger has played 410 games so at least he may be available for selection instead of sending in a sick note. They both seem to have a 1:4 ratio which isn't great but much more useful if fit and available and that's before we consider the respective costs involved for fees and wages.
    • There was an astonishing story in the Guardian about why Magath bombed at Fulham, shortly after he left. It sounds like we dodged a bullet by not appointing him. https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2014/sep/20/fulham-farewell-magath-felix-madcap That said, it's extremely narrow-minded and parochial to dismiss a German manager because he'd supposedly turn the town of Middlesbrough into an enclave of ze Faterland. Wonder what changed in the run-up to Aitor's arrival?
    • Yeah, you have no idea. I had it all written out, it's crazy. I also just realised I have the very last scenario wrong. If Denmark win 1-0, Finland lose 2-1 and Denmark get only 1 disciplinary point more than Finland, Denmark will still finish 2nd. It's only if Denmark get 2 or more greater than Finland that they will finish 3rd. Basically, that scenario with those scores and only 1 yellow card more than Finland goes all the way to the last tiebreaker. Which goes all the way back to the qualifying groups and compares position, then points, goal difference etc. But even though Finland got more points than Denmark in qualifying (they finished in the same position), Finland got 6 of those points against the 6th placed team. Because some of the groups have 6 teams (Finland) and some groups have 5 (Denmark), they re-do the tables as if nobody ever played the 6th placed team. So Denmark would retain their 16 points, Finland would drop from 18 to 12 as if they never played Liechtenstein.
    • Well it could be, if they haven't been recommending the kind of players he is looking for. Or else it speaks to more poor communication if they haven't been given the right instructions. Some people adopt the, "If you want something done properly...do it yourself..." philosophy if they find others aren't doing what they want. Maybe thats whats going on here...unless Warnock has had the same approach at his other clubs. 🤷‍♂️  
    • come on the danes, the incentive must be if you get though in second. wales in the last 16. surely u guys can beat that lot.  Danish power come on u reds.
