  1. 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.
  2. When we bought him, it reminded me a bit of the Thorpe/Sorenson/Akinbiyi saga from the 1999/00 season. We didn't need a player like him, with Szmodics and Paterson already in place. It's hardly as if he had set the world alight when he was on loan; unlike Tomlin. I bet Chelsea couldn't believe that a club was finally going to buy him. The £3.5m we spent, now looks like a complete waste. There is a player in there, that pass to Brownhill against Charlton will stay long in the memory. But looking at his previous loans (including the successful Huddersfield one); and there is obviously a rea

    Before we get ahead of ourselves, thinking he's staying. Fammy says "i want to stay". His agents( 1 in england, 1 in France) say he will only stay if you pay x amount to him/ x amount to us. Ultimately they have probably been touting him everywhere; and if he gets other offers. We either have to match/better that offer to him and his agents or he leaves.... 99 times out of 100, money talks; and footballers walk.
  4. I'm guessing the club Chairman would have to sign off on these before accepting them? In which case Jon Lansdown has come up with some wonderful evocative designs in the last 6 months. Including that "special" one off anniversary strip against Fulham. Looking forward to the Option 2 strip from the refund fiasco. That has all the supporters names on it, that went for that option. Really good black away strips that we probably sold a good deal more of that previously was the case (3 in this family alone). Binned in favour of a return to purple and green effort from previous season
  5. Not sure what to make if this. Regardless of how CH did in his first interview, if he was one of the main 4 (out of 10); then MA stated that they were each interviewed "multiple times". So MA gave him other interview opportunities; and still came to the DH conclusion. Doesn't make sense to me. Then again neither did MA's DH is a "Right fit" (refused to elaborate). Or JL's DH is the "right foot"
  6. Yep, good points. I think a Cat 1 academy is also about the facilities that you have to have to go along with the actual yearly financial investment. The development at Failand is a huge step up on the previous set up. Hopefully alongside it, the club will look to possibly push towards being a Cat 1. There's no point in my eyes, having Failand as it will be in 2021; if you're not looking to increase the overall size and capability of the whole Academy.
  7. I think he needs to get back to basics, and rebuild his career a bit; if i'm honest. He was doing alright at Newport, not great; but reasonably well. We recalled him; and hoped that he would progress seamlessly into our 1st team set up. It obviously has back-fired. There is a player in there. But whether we expected too much, too soon; i'm not sure. Watching from the Dolman; he looked hopelessly out of his depth. Neither reading the plays, or linking up with the other players. He looked like the proverbial rabbit in the headlights. When he was finally dropped, and taken out
  8. Possibly. But according to their tweets, he was training with the kids; and others there.
  9. So literally down the road from failand? Very weird.... Surprised if it was something the club organised, that they didn't publicise it?
  10. Yeah, i noticed that. A bit strange that the club hasn't said anything. They normally like to have him front and centre on these things.
  11. I know that DH has just been appointed; and things will only just be starting to take shape. But does anyone know whether there is any friendlies lined up, before the start of the season? I know that they will be without spectators. it'll just be interesting to see what formations/ fringe players are included. Looks like the first game is only a couple of weeks away.
  12. No, but given he was sacked before DH had even said yes. I would imagine it was a board decision rather than just down to DH.
  13. Blaming the JM sacking on DH was a bit of a low blow.
  14. A bit like the chairman then?
