  1. But they are not breaking any rules by having an owner of a club in another country,any transaction between the clubs is nothing to do with the EFL,as much as some people wish it was
  2. Enough in the tank,we will be lucky to get 1 point out of the remaining 9 available
  3. I just hope our recruitment team (if we have such a thing) have seen how things can be done by recruiting. proper players. Sorry but i don't have the faith in some of the youngsters who are currently making the starting Eleven to progress much and make a case for starting every game,they are currently playing out of necessity than quality.If offers come in during the break for a couple of them MM will snatch their hands off
  4. Let them get in the dressing room 1st,he doesn't need yet another red card
  5. That's so Sky can confirm them as champions when they have beaten us,just to rub our noses in it after what we did last season
  6. Could do worse than Cocu having a look at 20 year old Connor McLennan (Scottish under 21 international) Aberdeen pacy attacking Right winger, certainly fits Cocu's ethos for young players, better than what we already have and has really impressed when i have seen him play. Versatile player who can also play as a Left winger or CF. Not out of contract till end of next season but i don't think it would break the bank to get him and he would certainly add something positive to the squad
  7. At least you can't get locked up for gobbing over yourself
  8. No matter how people go on about schools reopening and fans being allowed back into grounds, they are Two entirely separate issues. A friend of mine is a school governor and what the government are saying regarding kids going back to school in the numbers suggested is a logistical nightmare as regards separation. Someone posted earlier about how good people had behaved when the pubs reopened this weekend,that doesn't appear to be the case from the news i have seen. I think the clubs will be concentrating at getting the sponsors back into the executive boxes so they don't lose that lu
  9. This games set up for Shinnie, get him on and give him the freedom to roam and draw their players out of position
  10. Want to see Shinnie on at half time, let him get stuck in,rough it up a bit and run at them
  11. No,they are just far away the better team
  12. I suggest you go on the Oatcake forum and see what Stoke fans have to say about him
  13. And what measures do you think could be put in place for half time. I think it will just be the maximum permitted number of fans allowed into the ground to watch the match without the necessity of providing food and drink. No one knows until/when fans are actually allowed back. As i said earlier when restrictions are relaxed from tomorrow and if the R rate spikes again fans may not be allowed back this year
  14. I would imagine that would be highly unlikely
  15. How people view going to a match in the future for the short to medium term is going to be way different as opposed to prior Covid-19.. I can see the clubs putting (and having to put) stringent practices in place. Turnstiles closed 30 minutes before kick-off so that people can take their seats, anyone turning up after that turned away, temperature checks being taken while in the social distancing queue to access the turnstiles with anyone showing a raised temperature being refused admission, anyone not adhering to the distancing rules inside the ground being made to leave the ground. That is i
  16. It would indeed and Leeds or any other team should have every right to do that with the transfer window opening on 1st July. You simply cannot have a transfer window and then not allow players to play, it is no different to the January transfer window. We shall see, if that was the case why not just put the start of the transfer window back to coincide with the end of the season, when this was originally discussed (2 months ago) no one had any idea when the season would restart if at all, events have changed, i can't see how player registration can be withheld if a player is signed in the
  17. But surely that was before it was decided when the transfer window would open. Clubs will have a legitimate claim to play new players that they have signed in the open transfer window which will give the new club live playing registration before the present season ends as opposed to signing a player on pre - contract terms. I can see clubs threatening court action of they are not allowed to play
  18. And the 2020/21 transfer window opens on the 1st July
  19. FIFA announced yesterday 11/06 that the transfer windows for National Associations will open on the original booked dates so that any players whose contracts expire at the end of the season (June) are not left unemployed. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8411575/Players-allowed-play-THREE-clubs-one-season-2020-21-campaign.html I take this to mean that any player who signs for a new club can play for them from day One and not wait until the new season starts.
  20. With the season scheduled to restart in under 2 weeks time i would say players out of contract at the end of the month are the players clubs will be having a good look at and more likely to be signed up
  21. But the clubs will be fully aware of those issues in the days before the match, it's what happens with the testing on the day of the match that's the difference
  22. So what happens if say Marriott, Martin and Waghorn all test positive for Covid-19 at the same time. People will be on here screaming the match they were down to play in should be rearranged to play at a later date. Matches may be on the way back but you can't guarantee the best 11 will be playing until a couple of hours before kick off
