The Bristol post article has Simpson and Weimann extensions. Says that Walsh is still TBC but more likely to leave than stay. 

Interesting article but no mention in it of Adelakun or Wollacott on whom we have 1 year options.

Be surprised if either remains, so Weimann, Simpson & possibly Walsh but unlikely in the latter case.

Busy summer ahead.

Weimann and Simpson I can understand keeping on. Walsh I hope somethings decided and he stays on. Would be a massive shame if he was to leave. However if he does it surely means Pearson will bring in another decent CM. Hopefully Mowatt, James or someone whose a real leader in the middle

The squad's going to be smaller if as the Post says he's only bringing 5 in, that's ok so long as we don't pick up injuries like we have done recently.

He may bring in 5 on contracts but may also add some season long loans

Fordy62 is a copper. He tweeted a footballer to say he thought he was crap at football. I want to tweet fordy to say he’s crap at catching criminals. 
 

There are always strange twists and turns with OTIB threads but this must be the strangest. We’ve got comments about someone’s, alleged work performance! I’ll join in - yesterday I ironed some shirts and the result was less than perfect. Probably only 7 out of 10.

To continue the tangent, what iron where you using? 

The number of people I see with a new fancy iron, and a substandard ironing board 🙄

Why are we keeping Simpson? Surely better and younger RB's out there?

Because Pearson knows what he is getting, he has said for a while our mentality is weak & he sees him as part of the solution there.

I doubt he will play more than 30 games next season but he wants him in the squad.

My hunch is Vyner will be our first choice RB with Simpson the cover, if so we are definitely in the market for 2 new central defenders.

so your ironing performance is still better then Patto has been for us. Fordy was being harsh at 1 in 10, I reckon over the time he has been here, it is more like 1 good game in 6, but the principle remains...

Now all i need to know is for ever 10 burglars Fordy has nicked, how many of them have been banged up? 

As for me, I planted out 10 chilli plants a few weeks ago, not a single one of them has come out yet, so a 0 in 10 performance, but as footballers are my heros and role models (:laugh:), I still want paying in full for all 10 non growing plants...

We have an ironing lady. She’s excellent value. I imagine she’s got one of those irons where the base is connected to the iron.

There’s no way Pearson would’ve agreed to have joined if we were ‘skint’. He will be backed, as we always do with our managers.

Simpson will be kept on as Pearson knows and trusts him ala Cotterill with Wade Elliot.

Yep.....Nige has said that we concede too many ‘soft’ goals which to me points at the defenders. I reckon Kalas could be moving on and with Baker being so unreliable in terms of his long standing injury issues at least two CBs will be needed - question is, who?

All clubs are broke after this pandemic, Pearson's already been quoted as saying he's going to have to be 'creative' this window, ie he's not going to have much transfer money to spend

City are not skint. I imagine Nige will be under the same expectations as LJ and Deano - he’ll have to move players on to free up some resources to reinvest in the squad. 

That said I’m pretty sure that he’ll be backed come what may.

I do wonder what "creative" meant though, I.e. do we pay less of an initial transfer fee but with higher staged payments in the next couple of years when revenue is back to normal? We will need to spend relatively more than most this summer as our current squad will be relegated next year if not.

We have backed managers pre pandemic and when we have managed to sell other players.  We lose £16m per year with the fans attending, I am guessing it will be more like £30m loss without the fans.

The only players we have that could really get us decent money are Semenyo, Bentley and Kalas and their values will now be lower post pandemic.

I think Pearson knows the score and if he was going to wait for a club to employ him who wasnt skint then he would be waiting a long time

But on the flip side, we are not going to need as much. 👍

Skint implies 0 money and on the verge of being in financial trouble, we know that's not the case.

Just because the financial landscape has shifted a bit, as if has for all clubs, doesn't necessarily mean we're "skint" - it actually might work in our favour as the market was getting ridiculously inflated and players going for fees vastly in excess of their true worth.

It depends on the perception of "skint" - I don't disagree that the financial landscape will alter our spending, but it's the same for all clubs so sort of cancels itself out.

"Skint" has a different inference which is my point. It implies that we in isolation have no money to play with, which isn't the case.

 In my particular field, we catch about 97 in 100 of the criminals who commit the crimes I deal with, so I’d say we’re pretty damn good at it. Cheers.

Think it means 2 things;

You might need to sell to buy or swap a player.

Secondly creative to me is about maximising resources, so as Pearson says significantly improve the availability record of those you have, more players featuring 38 times rather than 8.

You understand because it’s on twitter ? Why would mowatt leave Barnsley to come here ? He’s currently at a club in the play offs . With everything going on behind the scenes I’d just be happy to stay up again next season .

I agree. Extraordinary.

Two reasons - Nige knows what he’ll bring having worked with him previously and Nige also knows what influence Simpson will have both on and off the pitch.

He’s exactly what the team needs - an experienced and capable defender. We need another three or four that fit that criteria.

This summer window is going to be truly fascinating.

Agree, it is insanity.

People suggesting Mowatt will join are deluded, if Barnsley don’t go up every side in the top ten, plus probably 2 of the relegated sides will be interested in him.

Nah. That’d be an interesting department though. 

Let’s just say a clue to the department I work on is that it’s the last department in the world you’d want working on your case!
