  1. They are pretty open about how they work with the salary cap. Some astute signings at Championship teams on lower salaries, players not getting opportunity at their clubs for good value (Thacker etc) plus the odd marquee signing. Pat is pretty hands on with it & is one of the reasons they didn’t get Genge despite Genge saying on the phone to him ‘but for £500k you get the best prop in the prem Bab’ he doesn’t believe in overpaying players apart from unless they are really worth it, not just on the pitch, the culture etc. I’d be extremely surprised if it’s Bris
  2. Still reckon there’s a twist in the tale yet! Proper weird goings on, see what tomorrow brings
  3. Why was the drone up today with the media dept working on something? Yet DH is taking his tome to mull over. I’ve been told, still, to expect an announcement tomorrow (Saturday).
  4. Was told an announcement likely to be tomorrow earlier but with betting suspended may accelerate it to tonight, but it’s happened before
  5. If Hughton does still come here, they gotta back him, let him do his thing & step back. No point appointing him but giving a load of weird restrictions, you aren’t actually getting CH then. Externally yes, but it would be setup to fail from the start and DH would make more sense in that regard.
  6. Perhaps it extends beyond transfers & into other things like team selection suggestions (interference) too
  7. They know about the first banner 100% the arrogance is outstanding
  8. During Coppell’s short time with the club & it has been well publicised he had some issues with similar goings on at other clubs like Man City. Do you think he was not fully aware of the input from those above, the David James signing for example may have put his nose out of joint & thought bugger this & walked?
  9. If Holden appointed but allows budget for a top notch signing alongside would you take it? Vs Hughton and having to work with what we have?
  10. Gregor’s job is to get people to click and view the articles. He’s deffo doing that! If the club are giving nothing away he’s got a job to do still & at least it gives us all something to talk about. You do have to take nearly all of it with a pinch of salt & read the wording carefully, it’s no more news than you get reading here. It’s just because it’s from a publication which in these days we are sometimes the journalists for the journalists - embedding tweets etc. Fingers crossed for a positive outcome. Gut feeling is Gregor may have pushed it too far with yesterday’s article & now they are saying no second interviews etc as they’ve seen the backlash and don’t wanna lose CH / another when they may have made the decision. who knows the bed sheets may have just saved the day
  11. Massive opportunity now with Fulham gone too
  12. Just feels like he’ll already be starting with a portion of the fanbase against him due to previous association. Why is it that the fans could see that this was finally the chance to have a proper refresh & create a true statement of intent & just inject some belief back into the fan base that they want to give it a bloody good go.
  13. I really want to photoshop Dean Holden, Macca etc onto a backstreet boys poster now
  14. Could still be something contractual eg after tomorrow the season technically ends, youd imagine they make play off final date the real end of season date...... perhaps that is a cut off for some former payout / compensation etc
  15. If it is cook the food puns will keep us going for the next few seasons... plus he does serve up good football, not sure if he’s ever been sacked (potato) either
  16. Wraps, I see what you did there
  17. CH done and dusted ages ago, players already knew before their break, just can’t be announced til after July, but he’s been busy behind the scenes signing loads of players & it’ll be announced with the kit the above is not true as far as I know, but the way this past few weeks have been something fishy is going on
  18. Gotta wonder if August 1st / a new month has some sort of contractual impact even from a past employer. I also agree if it were an accident surely if it’s a novice googling him they would just use his wikipedia or something of previous clubs
  19. Wonder if a new manager needed to approve this or if it’s a MA call
  20. Sam Morsy captain for next season?! Lovely jubbly alongside Walsh.
  21. Set myself up for that response to be fair
  22. I’ve been told there could be an announcement this week, I know that’s pretty vague but I’m aware of discussions about how the appointment is to be announced (eg on the roof) have happened. Not very juicy sorry, but I will try to find out more once known. I asked if Hughton, but they don’t know..... yet. I guess what im trying to say is there may be closure on this soon
  23. When betting companies stop taking bets on things - for example a new manager. Is that because they have inside info or some very large bets have been placed on that person in quick succession?
  24. Seem to remember talk of LJ doing a presentation ahead of this season to the board saying there was a real opportunity to go for it as a weakened championship... can’t remember exactly where that was posted, hence the backing in the transfer market this season. If Villa stay up, with Leeds going up too, you’d have to think it’s a great opportunity for the season ahead on paper as others have said. Hate aside Villa down would be lovely but they would be right up there again with top players.
