Both Taylor (getting a run because ward off injured) and Wood looked to have painful nights in Burnley's 0-4 vs spurs, wood forced off and Taylor on the receiving end of a highly dubious dele alli 'challenge' that a burnley player up against big four might have seen red for.

Aw. Hopefully his Everton/Leicester contracts were thick enough to mean there'll no desperate rush to get back into work. Also given where he came from I doubt he'd bat an eyelid at dropping down into league two or even worse, and why should he, still a fantastic way to earn a living.

I certainly wouldn't be averse to Leeds making a sentimental offer of say minimum wage plus generous expenses to maybe do a bit of say lower division slash non league scouting for us or summat.


According to Google Leicester gave him a 4 year deal on around £40k a week.

Sounds like he'll be ok, absent a serious gambling problem or whatever. Very pleased for the guy, particularly given that lufc got over 50% of his career goals and by the sound of things paid out considerably less than 5% of his career wages :bigsmurf:

Just read this on the BBC's preview of tonight's Millwall v QPR match:

"Steve Morison has had more shots without scoring (52) of any player in the Championship this season."

A good thing, or bad? :mrgreen:

Well, you fucking jinxed him with that stat, didn’t you? The legend finally lived up to his reputation tonight.

Ross Barkley a complete player worth £15m, sez Conte.


Amazing what happens when he's managed by someone who doesn't cunt him off all the time.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

£15m for a sometime England international is peanuts isn't it?

Bet Loftus-Cheek is pissed off!

pff, yeah, dunno. conte did compliment barkley but distanced himself a lot from the deal, "...I gave my opinion to the club but the club then decide the players we can buy or we can sell... Recruitment is not my job..."

i don't envisage him getting all that many minutes there, TBH. 'number ten' shirts at big four/big six clubs are so hotly contested, they can bring in almost anyone in the world, barkley's good but not that good.

looks to me like barkley's one of the many potential england players compromising his career by moving to/spending too long at a big four club.

In on loan to get some game time? Come on Toni, make it happen. (I loved his demenza senile crack the other day, while I'm on...)

Agreed. Thing is, however good/OK/not quite up to it you and I think he really is, we have to allow for the fact that most of these guys will believe in themselves and their ability so much they won't really have a true idea of where they stand. You'd have to believe in yourself to make it as a pro at almost any level, so young Ross will probably think he's on a tier with Gazza, or similar. He'll fancy himself to do well anywhere - well, anywhere in England, certainly. Until he gets no games and moves on to Southampton or West Ham or their equivalent at the time. And there's nowt wrong with having a go, is there?

Well Chelsea usually do have something like 20-30 players out on loan, right?

But I suspect with Bartley the plan is to keep him on as a fringe player for a couple of years, then sell him on for a small profit, if he turns out better than that it'll be a bonus.

I noticed that kyle bartley is fit again, in the Swansea fa cup team. Re that game I'm a little disappointed to see that wolves have rested a few key players, I daresay they'd have been the better side on the day at full strength.

It’s all about the homegrown player quota innit?

Leaving aside the Michael brown comparisons, is it just me who thinks he will be one the best midfielders in the country now he has a platform he believes is commensurate with his talent

we don't want to be developing our youth players for them to fuck off and shine elsewhere. it isn't always the case though; one of our best bits of 'business' nearly 10 years ago was getting £5m for michael woods and tom taiwo. good to see woods is still pulling up the trees at hartlepool, scoring a brace today in their cup defeat.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

Yep I like Bartley but don't see him being anything more than a squad player.
