I reckon Ben would just cover the £30k difference between what we can pay - like Gaston did.

Could SG just give him a really generous christmas / birthday present that coincidentally covers that exact amount? 😛

Sorry I just needed to see kids as off to London tomorrow until saturday.   Randolph - West Ham tried to renegotiate with us and wanted a loa  as they couldn't be sure with injury... woody s

@Lurker, @diggerlad07 @Smoggydownsouth and all the other ITK posters. Thank you for all the ITK info you guys share. Think i speak for everyone when i say it is much appreciated. Without it the l

Roberts is done. As someone has said, Ayala is on £25k a week. Don’t know what he’s been offered but I can’t believe it would be £5k. Randolph is gone, assume it’s West Ham.    5 more

Don’t think Woodgate coming out and saying Fry is only going for £30m was the smartest decision. Personally wouldn’t blame Burnley if they came back with pay all his wages or it’s not happening

Guesswork journalism 😂

I don't think they've just made it up; he is recorded on payroll sites at 40k so I would guess that's where journos are taking it from.

Out of our current team the only players I can see generating serious interest that would fit the ‘Everyone has a price’ line would be, Paddy, Britt, Fry, Tav and Spence. Personally wouldn’t want any to leave and I’m surprised so many people would be happy to see Paddy sold. I think he’s our best midfielder and will improve us massively when he’s moved back there.  
 If pushed I’d rather see Britt leave over the others but I’d very much like to see a Fletch, Britt, Roberts front 3

Players I'd accept us selling this window without a replacement: Clayton and Gestede

Players I'd accept us selling with a replacement: Assombalonga, Johnson and Shotton

I'd keep everyone else because our squad is very thin as is and we're heavily reliant on academy players plugging the gaps now.

A lot of people are guessing the same wage then, as I've been told that by a credible source and as mentioned it's on several credible sports finance websites. Prem wages are generally easier to access to, so I don't see a reason to doubt the credibility

If all aspects of the contract were being achieved then yes that would be correct as it stands they are not

Wont be Howson he joined us as he wanted to move back to Yorkshire with his young family.

That’s good then, he is the only older midfield utility man I can think of, unless you class Clayton as a utility man, or McNair as older. Which neither of them are.

do not expect Fry to be amongst the first to leave ...more like to be midfield/utility player on more money and somewhat older

McNair is somewhat older than Fry and probably the one player in the squad I'd think could be outright classed as a utility player by anyone, he's been that for most his career so far. This absolutely sounds like McNair.

    • I think I remember reading that you are allowed to eat at different times or something like that if it effects your work.
    • Well yeah. One is observing religious doctrine while the other is just laziness! 😁 But I was thinking it must be far more difficult to fast during daylight hours, for a prolonged period of time, while still maintaining pro footballer levels of fitness. But as Sanddancer explained, there is some flexibility for people in certain situations where it may not be practical.   Thanks for clearing that up. I was not aware of this. 👍  
    • There was Zemmama as well during Mowbray's time. I seem to recall  Mogga using him sparingly during Ramadan because of him fasting or did I just imagine that?
    • Having lived and worked in Asia (Dubai) for 34 years I can vouch Ramadan is upheld by many and they still go about there work, well more now then ever. There was a time when food outlets closed before sunset to help calm temptation but recently they are open as usual, and even alcohol. Just be aware and show some respect and it's fine. The middle east celebrates many cultural festivals and just recently, Jewish..  I have recently heard they may be changing Friday weekend to coincide with the western world. Actually when I first went to Dubai it was actually a Saturday. Obviously this has a lot to do with business.  The idea that all Muslim must fast during the Holy month is incorrect as they can fast at a given time more suitable. These could include travel, pregnancy, medial reasons and a host of others. However as its one of five pillars of Islam one really should adhere..  The point being it cannot be made an excuse..    https://www.zakat.org/valid-exemptions-for-not-fasting-ramadan
    • I think fasting during Ramadan is light years away from just skipping Breakfast!
