January transfer window 19/20 season Post Mortem

Recommended Posts

Too much hype and expectation would be on Ben’s shoulders if he signs for us imo, he will always be the chairman’s nephew if he is at Boro in the eyes of the media and other clubs which would do both him and the club a great disservice. He needs a new start somewhere else to get his career back on track, not sure if Watford would be the best place but it is better than Burnley.

Isaiah Jones to St Johnstone on loan is a bit of a strange one he's not the one I would have pegged to get the highest level loan opportunity but good luck to him that could be huge if he steps it up in the SPL.

Watford have just let Prodl leave after terminating his contract. Would seem they're confident of getting a defender.

Shall we not just go get Prodl for 6 months instead then? Haha. I see he got they player of season 2yrs ago.

Reading joined Stevenage permanently

Slight shock that one, seeing as he was rated similarly to Coulson as recently as preseason. I suppose with Bola still on the books, and Friend on his way back, we don't need to stockpile LBs.

Tweeted what?

Asking if he has heard anything about Gibson coming to us. Only place I’ve read it is on here for last few weeks and in the gazette the last few days, but national journalists and sky only mentioned Watford

I think Terry Stephenson will be moving up from the u18s. He's rated highly

His name suggests he's been transported here directly from the early 70s as well, so that is a plus

    • 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.
