Good move, he will not have it easy in that division. Good test for the lad.

Gotts to Hudds should be next, it will be good to see how a few of our youngsters do out on loan this season.

yeah. technically he's a top player, his problem is his physicality. a few months at oldham might do the job.

trouble is i can't think of a youngster who bielsa has let go on loan whi has come back and done owt.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

Apparently Orta has boldly gone to Amsterdam on trek to sign Kerk.

A 10m fee shows plenty of enterprise & the club are not phasered by it.

Was thinking when bringing him in to my FPL team that presumably Harrison won’t be able to play next week?

Lets not worry about relegation after two games.

Whatever happens this season we are still going to be better off than 95% of clubs outside the EPL. Can you imagine the shit we'd have been in this season with covid if we hadn't been promoted? Bugger knows how championship clubs are going to survive without breaking FFP rules when they have lost 80% of their income.

I can see that there will be some relaxing of the rules, I'm not that up on finances, but clubs will probs be able to show COVID losses as a reason for owners/investors to pile money in.

I suppose i suspect that all domestic and European variants on ffp will be relaxed very significantly, maybe temporarily got rid of altogether, whilst this is going on.

Playing behind Brett Pitman. Everyone guess how old he is before clicking to see here.

He was pretty good in their promotion season, had a decent spell in the first half of last season then faded. Not sure he improves what we already have.
Edit: Though he is young enough to learn BB.

Ponte, you have to look beyond his football skills and concentrate on his flowing blonde locks.

Be nice to turn the tables and take a player off Norwich for once. Rather have Buendia though.

Reports suggest Cantwell isn't in the Norwich match day squad, which suggests things are fairly advanced.

I've seen a bit of Cantwell, honestly doubt he's good enough for the PL right now. more a technical than physical player (skinny, slow) so possibly a late bloomer.
