Yes possibly 1 or 2 more if players leave 

By this do you mean just 1 or 2 after Dijksteel or 1 or 2 more than the 4 we think we can get? ?

It's the HQed in Middlesbrough SMI.

Why does that make it less likely?

Reason to be sceptical on that Lyle Taylor story could be who his agent is...

https://smiworld.co.uk/

Couldn't that also be a reason not to be sceptical, i.e. that they have a pre-existing relationship with the club.

It could but on the other side SMI since day 1 Woodgate 'hijacking' SMI client Lyle Taylor transfer with impending bid is an easier sell as BS to me personally just turned my scepticism up, a bit like how we supposedly chased Snodgrass every window for 2 years, ah good times.

We were kind of after Snodgrass to be fair.  I can't say I'm all that fussed about Taylor though.

I can’t see us bringing in a 3 million pound striker as third choice

Pimps in Derby are optimistic of a great financial start to the next calendar year.

They will be investing in a more "mature" merchandise in the coming months!

If the Dijksteel deal goes through we could actually field a good XI made up entirely of players 24 and under:

--------------Pears---------------

Dijksteel--Fry--Wood--Bola

-Tavernier--McNair--Wing-

Coulson----Fletcher----Browne

The future seems bright!

I often think the whole "if you can't beat them, join them" on the Stadium sale loophole , but as you only really get 1 go at it the timing needs to be right. 

If I understand correctly the FFP measurement is based on the most recent 3 seasons. Looking at our last 3 seasons where 2 of which included parachute payments, I would suggest we are compliant.  I've nerded a bit and reckon playing this trump card (if needed) wouldn't be until the 2021/22 season (provided we've not secured promotion beforehand).   But I would guess by that time the EFL would have closed such loopholes with rule amendments. 

Just thinking out loud.

The issue with this is that Gibson would actually have to pay the money to buy the stadium.  I don't think he wants to sink in another £80m or whatever the cost would be.  I'm not even sure that he could.

In all seriousness I wonder if someone else will get a go from now on. Didn't he sky the one before too?

I bet Wing could smash a good pen. 

 

He'd probably put a hole in the keeper and the net lol

Wood is lightyears away from being ready if preseason is anything to go by.

    • 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.
