  1. Completely agree. But how can you plan for next season, if you not negotiating now? Yes, you may be offering lower terms, but you're still in negotiations. How many key players do we have ooc? A large number of them with established championship experience. Lose that, and you're replacing them with free agency players(expensive) or paying transfer fees. Or buying from lower divisions and hoping for the best. Plus DH keeps changing his tune over these contracts from signing soon, to in constant negotiations, to no negotiations at all. Looks really poor management.
  2. Some very mixed messages coming out from the club at the moment, in regard to new contracts. We've gone from new contracts soon for key players; to MA is in constant dialogue with agents and players. Now we are not negotiating at all until next month, and everything is stopped? Very strange. How can you plan in this transfer window, if you have no idea of the players that you are going to have next season? Very unsettling for the OOC players as well, who can of course sign pre contracts elsewhere at any time. I get that we are on a pandemic, but this change of approach
  3. Glad that the truth has come out eventually. I think the club is starting to get embarassed by the injury debacle. They seem to want to bury any injury news now, right down the bottom of any new article.
  4. Just heard from a mate that Pring has torn his hamstring. Leaves us very short at Left Back. Can't find anything confirming this. Anyone heard anything? Can't believe how many hamstring injuries we have had this season.
  5. Has Paul Cook got a job? They must have someone lined up, and I'd be amazed if he wasn't in the reckoning.
  6. Really poor defending on that corner. Switched off for 1 second, and that's all it took. Hopefully he will learn, but the Championship is an unforgiving league; he may have got away with it in L1 or L2. I prefer Kalas in the centre. Moore rcb, and Mawson lcb. Allows Moore more scope to bring the ball out of the defence (one of his strengths i think).
  7. I remember a similiar stupid foul against Villa at home a few seasons ago (drew 1-1 i think). Gave away a free kick needlessly that Bjarnason scored from. COD has always struck me as a bit if a liability in defensive situations. Gets turned easily, and is often out of position. Heh ho, we go again.
  8. Ultimately, although he appears a good player, with promise. He looks to be behind Bakinson, Williams and probably walsh, even Massengo possibly. Unlike championship manager, we don't have to keep a squad of 32 (just in case). I'm happy to let him go, with a big sell on clause of course.
  9. Would the "special status" be permanent or time limited? That said, when was the last time that one of the top six got relegated the next season. I suppose of the "big" clubs. Southampton would definitely want to be in that group; as well as West Ham, Newcastle.
  10. Indeed. But the potential scrapping of Parachute payments, might make the Championship a more level playing field.; as well as the increase in income from the PL. I'm sure the concept of the lower placed teams having to play the playoff teams from the league below has been tried before (albeit never in PL/Champ). Interesting times ahead. From looking at it initially; there will be a lot more frightened PL teams, than Champ at this proposal.

    All fair points @Davefevs. No issue with your analysis. The goals against Cardiff, and Man City; were when he was trying to let the ball go out of play for a goal kick, when he was playing as Lb. Those two in particular were school boy errors. That said, it was his long throw in the same Cardiff match; that led to the Flint winner of course. You're in a better place than me to show his relevant statistics. But if memory serves, physically he started losing a number of 50/50 physical challenges; and seemed to be bullied in certain games. Certainly opposition would target him, as a pot

    I think the problem with Magnússon was he always seemed to have a catastrophic mistake in him, at some stage during every match. Normally due to a lack of concentration. Unfortunately, these mistakes normally culminated in a goal against us (Cardiff, Preston, Man City spring to mind). You could see that LJ lost confidence in him; and with that Magnússon's own confidence dropped as a result. There is definitely a good player there. You can't be an international; and play in the CL against the calibre of sides that he has, if he wasn't up to it. However for me, if he had stayed, he wou
  13. Happy to get some of these fringe players away on a Permanent. He had a fantastic season, last year. But doesn't fit into the new system; which seems to be initially working well. We need to get the squad down to around 26-28 I reckon. It's near on impossible getting rid of players like Watkins; and Adelenkum(sp); due to the wages they're on. No doubt, we are heavily subsidising their wages out on loan as well. Just like we did with Wright, and Taylor last season.
  14. They've just shipped out their record signing Joao Carvalho out on loan to Almeria as well. That was £13m well spent then. They have wasted so much money trying to replicate the Wolves/Watford model. In regards to FFP. I think Forest were on a transfer embargo back in 2016; that they were in for a few years. They've come out of that; with almost a free hand for 3/4 years. They must of budgeted on getting into the PL during that period of time; and must have been guttered after the playoffs last season.
  15. He's definitely a player who has relied on his Chelsea reputation for his agent to get him those loans. KP is the type of luxury player, that will be a really difficult sell to clubs in these strange covid times. Big wages, and not particulary adaptable to different formations. I can only see a heavily subsidised loan coming up in a leading L1 or one of the new championship teams.
