  1. Said this to a work mate earlier. Would keep Ince every day, you can't argue with his goals, assists and his all round effort this season.
  2. Eddie 'F***in' Lewis...
  3. You need to change the title of the thread then. And in answer to your new question, he won't. He needs to raise some cash for incomings and nobody is stupid enough to pay good money for Butterfield, Blackman, Camara (hence the free) Vydra & Anya. Mel appeasing his managers has left us up the creek...
  4. And why do I get the feeling you'll be at the front of the pitchfork brandishing crowd, if we do have an iffy patch...
  5. I fully support GR. I'm more than happy with his signings so far, and I fully support his decision to sell Hughes, I just don't support the board's decision to accept such a poxy amount for him...
  6. The ins & outs prove he will be sticking to his philosophies...
  7. I agree. All managers have to stick to their guns. If they all tried to appease the fans, they wouldn't last very long...
  8. Why would we want a manager that changes his working practices just because a few keyboard warriors don't like how he's doing things??? GR's remit is to win enough games to ensure promotion from this division, he strikes me as the type of bloke who doesn't give a f*** about upsetting a few people along the way... I don't believe most people aren't up in arms about Hughes actually being sold, they're up in arms about the price...
  9. I can understand your annoyance. But unless you're Real Madrid or Barcelona, or winning stuff, you're never going to hold onto promising youth products you actually want to keep. I still have faith GR will be a success at this club. I'm just hacked off about (the supposed) crap fee and the fact we didn't play hard ball...
  10. I don't mind pragmatic football. Mouriniho's first Chelsea team were pragmatic, but could play a bit as well. There's nothing wrong with getting balls forward, into channels quickly. I just don't want Wisdom playing a 50 yard diagonal to Russel's head...
  11. Would be my guess...
  12. From their forums - £4.5m rising to £7m agreed according to SkySports. Even if he's a dud that's a cracking price for such a talented young English player. Gino's absolutely shafted Derby over the last 10 months I'm sure Derby fans will be happy with the trading that's gone on between the two clubs. They've given us £12m for two fringe players, we're getting their best young talent for £8m Effectively swapping Hughes for Vydra looks like a good bit of business from where i'm sitting (living room) or of its the quoted price of 4.5 mill then we ve swapped Anya for Hughes.
  13. It's not the selling him, it's the rock bottom, bargain basement, insult of an amount that I'm so hacked off with. £4.5m for a lad who, with a good season under his belt, will be a full international. Daylight f***ing robbery!!!
  14. Of course it's good for Will, he'll be playing with & against a better caliber of player, for a tactically astute manager. The rest of us are left having to watch Butterfield take 4 touches, before playing a 10 yard sideways pass. BRILLIANT
  15. This is an absolutely crap deal all round. Even if it includes wiping the remaining fees for Anya & Vydra, isn't that offering up evidence of us not having a pot to p1ss in??? As I alluded to a couple of weeks ago, this is what happens when you spunk over the odds fees of bang average players like Butterfield, Blackman & Anya. All of the clubs we bought them from milked us of every last penny. Why the f*** aren't we able to do the same with tinpot clubs like Watford?!??!?!??!
