    West Upper - Block M
  1. Craig Bryson - signed for Cardiff season long loan

    Happy for him to go, I've enjoyed watching him but he's not but in a single performance in the last 2 years at the level he was at in 13/14 season. He also doesn't fit into the current system.
  2. Jota - Signed for Birmingham City

    I think its probably more likely that FFP is in hand but if we were to sign Jota for a big fee and pay out some hefty wages it would tip us over the limits. I think we we're probably interested at one point but he's gone out of our price bracket but that's purely a guess!
  3. Wonder what % of his wages they're paying...
  4. That's the attitude that's made us waste so much money over the last 2 years.
  5. Bids for players

    Of course we expect the club to bid for players, but bidding (what sounds like) quite a number of players at once when we've been told we only want 1 just shows how far down our list of targets we've had to go. It also goes against Rowett's comments about waiting for our main targets, and to me its likely to mean we end up with yet another bang average winger. If you're getting down to target number 5 or 6 on your list then surely you may be better going back and paying more for target 1. I'm a big fan of Rowett and the other business he's done so far has been really good, but I can't help but think we're made a real mess of the Ince replacement. The fact that all of these targets are other championship clubs best attackers which your always going to have to pay over the odds for just reiterates the point other people have made about the scouting. When we employ a number of full time scouts its a bit disheartening to see that the players your linked with (and have confirmed interest in) could all be picked off a list of the best performing wingers in your league in the last couple of years.
  6. Bids for players

    I find it worrying that we have bids in for "a number of players" when we've been told that we'll wait for our top target. The wording of we've got a number of bids in for players kind of indicates its at least 3 maybe? Sounds rather desperate. The sooner our transfer policy moves away from working our way down the championship table offering for their best winger from last season the better.
  7. Confess your unpopular Rams opinions

    Rob Earnshaw wasn't given enough game time and could have been good for us
  8. Maybe bringing in new players might give some of the others a clear indication that they just aren't going to play and get them to give their agents a kick, or even make them consider taking a pay cut to get game time elsewhere.
  9. You can't really class him as a prem player as he doesn't get into Leicesters squad, and hasn't actually played many games (if any?) for them in the prem.
  10. Olsson to DC United

    Not too much to choose between him and fozzy for me, but fozzy is probably just better. Only reason he's not gone so far is that fozzy and lowe's fitness can't be trusted, and I doubt that that has changed since rowett came in.
  11. Isn't this exactly what we've done for the last few years but we lost a chunk of our investment and have had to sell off our best assets to compensate (Hughes and Ince) and now people want to do the same again...
  12. Grant Leadbitter

    I think its good marketing!
  13. Grant Leadbitter

    If we're sticking with a 4-2-3-1 2 of Thorne, Johnson, Bryson, Butterfield and Hanson are going to play in the 2. If we were to sign any more CDMs (never mind 3!) surely some of these players need to go to build this smaller squad we're trying to get to. You could argue Bryson or Butterfield could play no 10 but I think its unlikely and it will be Vydra, Nugent or Ince's replacement filling this position. Also doubt Johnson could do the left wing job in a 4-2-3-1.
  14. Grant Leadbitter

    Does this mean were selling Bryson, Butterfield and Johnsons then?! Can't see 2 more holding midfielders coming unless a couple of those were going.
  15. Signed: Tom Huddlestone 2 year deal

    If we're getting 2 wingers I think we need to get 2 of Russell, Blackman, Anya, Vydra or Weimann out of the door.
