Did the same apply to Bola and Browne in the summer? Was part of the plan having to send them back to their previous clubs because of how poor they’ve been?

Have a day off, every signing is a risk.

People are happy for us to spend 2mill plus on Maddison but when it's a keeper who has been scouted by the recruitment team, Coyne and Percovich you don't trust them?

Our fans love a moan

I haven’t criticised the signing at all, I’m playing devils advocate to the idea that any signing that the club signs off on must therefore be part of the plan and not subject to any questioning. Presumably Mejias was re-scouted by all of these people as well, if he was actually good enough (which your logic would suggest he is) then we wouldn’t even need to sign this new fella.

 

Its a message board, people tend to discuss things on them.

Bit harsh to write off Bola and Browne already too. They are only 22

Who’s written them off?

Why would you rescout a player who already played for you? He was an easy free signing to fill a gap, who Leo and Woody already knew.

I genuinely dont see the difference between playing devils advocate and criticism

I’m afraid that’s your problem, not mine.

The data analyst for Portsmouth on twitter seems to think that Stojanovic is a great keeper. Thinks he’ll be no1

I wonder what his distribution is like. Woodgate wants to play out from the back.

I’d imagine it’s because it’s a significant portion of our relatively small budget

We could get 5 Marcus Brown's or 1/2 Dijksteel with that money

Haven’t seen many people at all saying they were happy spending the 2+million on Maddison. They were happy if it was at a lower price.

Going by past transfers and dealings the club has made, it’s a fair judgement to say that we might have overpaid. It’s not a moan.

Imo I don’t actually see how on the face of it, he’s worth £1mill. He’s came from the Swiss league, a team finishing 6th, and can’t get into the Macedonian squad. Not to mention his contract was out in 6 months. We must really rate him.

He might turn out great and I hope he does.

interesting you said that. i've scoured the net looking for clips of st gallen with him playing. he's cetainly not afraid to rush out the box. i get the impression he is a bit of a sweeper keeper. presuming he must be decennt with his feet to have the confidence to do that. not seen any footage of that. not the sot of highlights you see on is it. unless he messes up. so not seeing might be a goodthing o=lol

Doesn’t help that the lad seems to have some of the worst defenders ever seen in front of him😂

as stated further back, he cant play for their senior team as he is a austrian citizen.

    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
    • Classic Dani 🤦‍♂️
    • My comment about the £20K a week contracts was in response to Grimsby Boro's revelation that over 150 championship players are to be out of contract in the summer meaning that those players whose contracts are ending will be highly unlikely to find new suitors willing to meet let alone exceed their existing deals. The implication being that Boro and other cash struck clubs could pick up  players this summer at a lot lower cost than they are presently being paid or indeed may be offered elsewhere if they are presently at Boro. Nobody likes to see anyone down on their uppers. Whether you earn £200 a week or £20,000 we all live, budget and mortgage within our means. For me personally it has been heart breaking to see the Maserati, Lambo and prancing horse all repossessed along with the 70 foot Yacht anchored in Monaco. The penthouse in Vegas is also going for a song if anyone has the odd £2.5M spare before the bailiffs move in. At this rate I'll end up in a four bed detached in Ingleby with a Mondeo on the drive. As I type the wife's red soled shoes are up on ebay and the girlfriend's Rolex is on Gumtree. I just hope the mistress can hack the Travelodge instead of the Grosvenor.
