  1. I agree. Was prepared to argue it was pretty much even Steven when we had shifted a lot of deadwood (O’Neil, Golbourne, Garita) & those awful loans plus getting back what we paid for Hörður. The 7 we have brought in might not have 2 individuals as effective as Reid & Flint but overall do strengthen our numbers. But today’s business means 5 starters from the Man U game have left & we have sold our best 2 players. Lansdown’s aim of top six seems totally out of reach, even equalling last season’ 11th looks a very tall order.
  2. So do I. Probably with the “hostage video” like Reid did..
  3. Wonder how we got to this position in the first place? I doubt it is the whole story, but we will never know.
  4. About to join you, this is a ridiculous marketing strategy.
  5. Which is good, because it is about 50% of what he has done for us.
  6. Dean Henderson has let in 5 so far in two hours of Championship football. No Niki Maenpaa, is he?
  7. Kodjia was under a completely different regime, Cotts was in charge & the scout who identified him knew Pemberton from their time together at Forest. Diedhiou was much more expensive but looks to me to be worth it, I’m not confident that I can say the same of any of the other signings from Europe as yet.
  8. Because they need something to cling to whilst watching the utter ******* shambles that they are in a non league ground. Don’t worry though The Post will continue to say their fans are the best in the universe for the rest of time.. Tinpot outfit.
  9. Even if he does, £1.5m spent, plus 18 months wages & those trips abroad for surgery & recuperation in exchange for less than £600k back and 7 (!) League starts, is a pretty rotten deal. I have read he prefers his daughter to start school in Italy so that’s why he wants to return. I like him as a player but this doesn’t smack of the greatest due diligence, does it? We all know kids reach school age at some point, so baffled as to why this has happened now.. There is no point in keeping someone who doesn’t want to be here and despite being an LJ signing, is seemingly now out of favour, but this is another failure from the “European experiment” for me.
  10. No argument. I felt when he was an unused sub v Bournemouth & Famara came on instead that his time with us was up, also him being apparently “injured” on Saturday saved LJ from presumably choosing between him & Eisa for a place on the bench.. I can only presume that an alternative “Plan B” is now on their way in? 5 more games, (4 in the league) so until Famara is back, any combination of Weimann, Paterson, Taylor or Eisa is just Plan A followed by more Plan A..
  11. Very good shout. Think he might be a Devon lad, too?
  12. Agreed. Think the fee was circa £1.5m, so this is another £1m loss, for only 7 league starts.. Although we (just about) got our money back for Hörður, this deal, plus the disastrous Engvall one, and the fact that Hegeler has barely featured at all since joining us, puts that series of unsuccessful European signings very much into focus. Don’t think it is a coincidence that the only 2 foreign signings we have made this summer were in the category of much safer bets, one who came from Derby (& before that was at Villa for a few years), whilst the other had spent 3 years at Brighton.
