No surprises really, Jozefzoon, Vydra, and going back through the days to Warnock missing out on Joel Ward. Evans missing Kyle Lafferty. A return for Bowyer in summer 20111.

Hadn’t appreciated before reading that that we got as far as having Haaland in the building before the Salzburg deal.

Apparently Pulgar is Spanish for thumb. I think that probably makes him worth pursuing.

winners;
charlie taylor - up 83%
kalvin - up 3%
tyler roberts - up 15%
patrick - up 104% :cheers:

losers:
neal maupay - down 13%
jarrod bowen - down 26% (must have bought high)
jack clarke - down 10%

might have to get my head round this again.

I've decided that if we were to sign anyone this January, it would be Zinchencko and Aaron Ramsay.

Seems as though Roberts might be heading out, hopefully on loan but if it is permanent, Derby are one of the clubs linked and they've recently had a takeover.

talking of derby, they've done rather better than expected since potato head took over. i heard someone behind the scenes there on t'radio describing how good he is at man management and that he's really into deep thinking over tactics :shock:

i suppose the only clue is that colleen is one of my favourite wags. he's maybe not such a div.

roberts needs to play most weeks at [roughly] the best level he can manage, still only 21, someone like Roofey hadn't been transferred to Oxford at that age, he was still doing the rounds of various dubious league one/two loan gigs. i don't particularly expect roberts to ever reach a spectacularly high level, but he just needs to play to give him a chance of finding out.

Significantly, he stopped playing since him and Rosenior took over.

Takeover not yet gone through..........the same bloke who fronted the Newcastle takeover. Was supposed to happen a month ago and the players wages were not paid for December.

Poor old Mel Morris seems to be living in a bit of a nightmare since their dream evening at ER 18 months ago!

we've been linked with this kid from reading who looks rather good on the ball. these videos don't show what a player is like off it, but the lad looks definitely very useful.

yeah, if he's 18 in those clips & that's championship football then he does look pretty good tbh.
