They've still got a couple of players I'd like to see in our squad - Bannan & Reach

Yes, it's not that they sign bad players, it's just that they don't seem to perform when they get there. 

What on earth happened with Jordan Rhodes? Didn't they sign him for something like £12 million, and then not even put him in the squad... and then give him to Norwich?

It’s due to family reasons. I believe his parents have been ill or something like that. 

I think both his mum and dad died last year. Ans he got sacked from his job. 

He's probably glad to see the back of 2018.

Wendies at work telling me Brucie will have a bonus as Chansiri has sold the ground which has freed up cash for transfers and to get out of FFP?

 I’m not saying that’s not true but when I asked them what sort of jeb end would buy Hillsborough?

His brother has bought it??

Surely that can neither be true or allowed under the rules?

Good idea. So we just need Mel to sell Pride Park to Mrs Mel and we're sorted!

Think they need to get rid of the deadwood and then rebuild rather than finding transfer funds.

One thing with Bruce is he likes to the cash when it needs someone who’s got a 3/4 year plan to go in and clear the deadwood out, invest in the youth and buy smart. Bruce feels a bit ‘out of the frying pan and into the fire’ to me. I actually like Bruce, but I do t think he’s the man for the job they need

Is it just me or is anybody else glad we haven't gone for this kind of appointment... dont really get why the wendies are so excited by this appointment tbh.

I really like having Frank or someone who needs to prove themselves, it keeps them hungry for success.

Can’t see them generating much cash.

I agree that would better,Chansiri wants out though.

Lots of players out of contract at the end of the year on big wages and I think their wages are higher than ours(allegedly).

Fletcher,Foristieri etc 40k?

Wouldn’t surprise me re: wages, they’ve made some shocking decisions with the players they’ve brought in to try and get promoted.

I kept tabs on the fans forum they had the other week and how the chairman was speaking about being happy with the season and the reaction was pretty funny. 

There are one of a few champ clubs, that also includes Forest, that wants promotion any means possible. They put little in place to achieve it and put no back up plan in place for when it falls apart. They just expect a money man to come in and save them. Problem is now if no one comes in I can’t see then getting out the mess. It’ll be interesting to see their squad at the start of next season
