Ex-Stoke player, and a Stoke fan from Stoke who still lives in Stoke, can't see it being much more than that.

Teamtalk saying we're 1 of 12 Championship clubs in for Carter-Vickers on loan.

Still think the same on Fry 30 million he's yours after a season in this pressing system I guarantee that lad will be hunted next summer by the big boys in the top 8. Still hoping it's Diangana on loan who we're in for a left footed RW would be perfect I just hope he's open to going on loan.

If we sell Fry late there's no way he can be replaced adequately we probably have a contingency I think best case we bleed Wood in a little more this season then if we sell Fry next summer step him into the role.

Well if that goes through we are definitely in for a very busy 4 days. I know his performances have not been great lately but I imagine in the pool of players we are looking k at we are not guaranteed to get better. Still a large wage off the books and with Woodgate being a CB no doubt he knows what he is looking for.

I've just realised that I've been confusing Cameron Carter-Vickers with Jake Clark-Salter

 

Bloody double barrelled surnames!??

Shotton owns a pub in Stoke still - can't see there being anything in it.

I call him Camilla Parker-Bowles. Not to his face, I mean not because I'm scared of him...

I hear Ryan Shotton has a Stoke City tattoo across his chest and a framed picture of Nick Hancock in every room of his house.

Middlesbrough are believed to have made a third offer for Charlton’s £2m-rated full-back Anfernee Dijksteel, while free agent Alan Hutton has been discussed.

But Woodgate is also wanting improvements in other areas, including an attacking midfielder. He has not added an extra striker to his ranks so far either, although as things stand he does have plenty options in that area.

Is he injured?

No but somebody mentioned we need an extra CM because if Wing is injured we have no creativity.

Michael Frey, one of the names of Fenerbahce's new season squad, once again on the radar of the British ... Middlesbrough who was knocking on the door of yellow-lacivertliler for the Swiss striker was claimed to come with a second offer. Island press reports; The British team was insistent on the 25-year-old striker.

 

A? Jamie for finding link. Translation via google.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • 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.
