So now the top six clubs have actually come up with mandate to allow them to actually run the entire league?! I very rarely agree with the FA but if this goes through it will be a very bad thing for fairness within our game! Part of the proposals actually show that you wouldn't need a voting majority across the league any more, just between the six biggest clubs. That's fair then ๐Ÿคฎ.

BullysBoy II

1.) 11 Oct 2020 21:46:10
The Premier League seem to be against this too. I wonder then, if the big 6 insisted on driving this proposal forward, would the other 14 PL teams consider quitting the PL and organising a new league structure without the greedy 6 leaving them to arrange their European Super League.

2.) 11 Oct 2020 22:01:27
I read it was 9 clubs but that still isn't fair everyone in the league should have equal voting rights.

3.) 11 Oct 2020 22:09:46
Just realised I said the FA, not sure where they stand to be honest. Your right Jas it's the Prem that have come out agaisnt it. And nope Window (from what I gather) 9 clubs would get voting rights but effectively a motion could still pass (like extra subs) with just the backing of the top six clubs! It's disgraceful, Fenway Sports Group basically want to return Prem footy to a fuedal system, where only those with money get any power! ๐Ÿ˜ก.

4.) 11 Oct 2020 22:32:50
I really hope the big 6 are successful and are able to take all the power. I also hope that the moment they do, the other 14 PL and 72 EFL clubs come together and form a new league. No one will want to join the big 6 clubs as they will not qualify for European competition as they're not affiliated to a national league. Their only hope will be a European League which will take a few years as other leagues need to negotiate their top teams to leave/ participate. Then there the question of how the poor fans are paying to watch the teams. Travelling from say Liverpool to Southampton is a lot cheaper than travelling to Madrid. As I say, I hope it happens.

5.) 12 Oct 2020 00:28:06
Who made them the big 6?

6.) 12 Oct 2020 07:15:23
They made themselves it.

7.) 12 Oct 2020 09:06:54
It would be interesting to see what the big 6 ordinary real fans think about these proposals.
Have you ed's seen anything on this matter on the big 6 fans sites?

{Ed002's Note - It has not come from the "top six". This all comes from the growth potential of Liverpool now flattening out โ€“ the owners would like to find a way to squeeze more out โ€“ and that is the reason that they have the support of Manchester United.}

8.) 12 Oct 2020 10:48:54
To me the new PL proposals are outrageous. It seems to come from the Liverpool American owners and is falsely presented in part as a rescue package. Long term they are trying to consolidate the big clubs into a cartel. the main reason to reduce the PL to 18 clubs is to have fewer Pl matches, and to delay the start of the season in order to have friendlies. It doesn't take much to work out that the friendlies will be between the usual suspects, the so-called top six! Turkeys don't vote for Christmas. Reject this insidious plan.

9.) 12 Oct 2020 11:00:21
Travelling to games? Actually going to any game would be a start! The FA run the England team so they could put their oar in and state that no player in a breakaway team could play for England.

10.) 12 Oct 2020 10:04:50
Thanks for the info Ed002.๐Ÿ‘.

11.) 12 Oct 2020 13:23:05
Project self importance or Project I'm alright Jack!

Would any potential break away, as mentioned by some then invite Celtic and Rangers? Just a thought.

12.) 12 Oct 2020 13:42:40
If you look at US sport they are pretty much all a closed shop the NFL being a prime example. Not really surprising that this has come from US owners. If they could stop relegation I suspect that they would.

13.) 12 Oct 2020 13:10:19
ED002, if the new PL proposals get approved, parachute payments will be stopped. This will weaken the relegated teams. It may also create a permanent under-class of teams at the bottom of the PL, going up and down between the two divisions.

{Ed002's Note - They will indeed be stopped. It is there to try and boost the income of Liverpool and to some extent Manchester United because the growth potential has flattened out - nothing else. The Liverpool owners are investors and would need to get out and invest elsewhere where there is more growth potential if the value of Liverpool is stagnating or growing slowly.}

14.) 12 Oct 2020 14:44:06
The fa Cup has slowly losing its appeal.
Like when I was growing up the fa Cup final the programme started roughly 10 in the morning and built up to 3 o'clock kickoff. You don't see that anymore I would hate the premier league to go a similar way.
Football is our community what our dad's bought us up on and fans no matter how good or successful their clubs are should always remain like a heritage listed building.
My 2 pennith.

15.) 12 Oct 2020 15:26:23
Phil the Premier League and the 2 million or so extra per each successive finish place has certainly devalued both cup competitions but the Champions League and scrapping of the Cup Winners Cup has also been a factor.

16.) 12 Oct 2020 16:03:38
I think versions of this type of proposal have been lurking for a while. Foreign investors in UK football clubs often have little concern for football's history in this country, and how important it is that every club's supporters have hope that one day they will be the best in the land. Running a closed shop of franchises has no place in the UK. Let the top 6 clear off and play their European mates, and let's keep a league that is open to merit and skill, and within fan's affordability when playing away.

17.) 12 Oct 2020 16:51:48
Agree Arddunby my thinking was if the big 6 leave or and no promotion what's the point of all the other clubs.
I feel fortunate my dad was born in Wolverhampton not say like Accrington or Burton as if he was I would of been a Burton or an Accrington Stanley fan.

18.) 12 Oct 2020 17:50:57
Pure hatred between the two of them on the pitch. Pure hatred for everyone else except their own cash coffers and self indulgence. Typical arrogance from the Osborne Northern 'powerhouse'

I can't help but feel this has just been created with an actual eye on the 'European Super League' that has been banded about for a decade or so. Kind of a toe our line else we are off to create our own league. If that is the case then I agree with Jas, let um go. I accept it would massively devalue our league but to be honest I'd sooner support Wolves back in the Champ than bow down to a fuedal Prem league system, where we get no say and are at the whims of the self selected 'big clubs'!, ๐Ÿ˜ก.

21.) 13 Oct 2020 22:48:46
And yes Gregg Clarke has now come out and confirmed that he left proceedings in Spring when a potiential ultimatum was mentioned! Let's call this what it is folks, cause Fenway want these six clubs to be the major share holders for the ENTIRE league! It's a coup on the Prem, plain and simple! Orchestrated by Fenway whilst the other clubs watch on in the hope for higher potiential yields! Parry makes me sick, of COURSE lower league clubs will support it! Cause they are fighting for survival and frankly it won't affect the vast majority in the current owners life time! For the first time it may actually be useful that the FA can quash such things. Although I suspect it won't be that simple, think things are going to get nasty! ๐Ÿ˜ญ.

22.) 14 Oct 2020 21:41:36
I think you are right BullysBoyII this is a step closer to a European super League if not now then in maybe 3 years time when the big clubs in Spain Italy France Germany might want to break away although I don't know if that will happen in every country

Scrapping the League Cup is a good idea.



07 Sep 2020 19:08:32
Is it just me or is anyone else finding the players being mentioned to be a bit odd?! Most are top players but most are either strikers or wingers, for me (since Fabio) those two positions are about the only place we don't need numbers?! I would expect to be seeing cm's and rb/ cb's cause that's what we need most but none are being mentioned? Who knows, still a LONG way to go in this window! ๐Ÿบ.

BullysBoy II

1.) 07 Sep 2020 19:20:46
i agree, can't help but believe there is a winger on the way. baited breath.

2.) 07 Sep 2020 19:42:09
I thought the same bullys. Like you, Iโ€™m sure, I am impressed with the incoming players so far but I too thought that a ball carrying cm and further wing backs / centre backs would have been our immediate area of concern. Like you say. Long way to go and they do keep surprising me and pulling rabbits out of hats ๐Ÿ‘.

3.) 07 Sep 2020 20:27:41
Looks like the ball carrying midfielder has been sorted Bigbird.

4.) 07 Sep 2020 20:42:54
I put that reply up and then looked at banter page! Lmao. They hang on my every word you know!
Messi next please fellas ( worth a try ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚)

Brilliant if happens. Exciting player.

5.) 07 Sep 2020 22:19:07
My very first post on here said we needed LWB, CB, eventual replacement for Moutinho and immediate part time back up for Jimenez
you could argue the 3 guys we have acquired do all of those things.
Silva is hopefully more than back up for Jimenez but certainly makes us less reliant on him. The latest chap Vitor is the creative midfielder, ( if he is as good as Santi Carzola that will be a bonus), that can be eased in over the next year or so as Moutinho is eventually eased out and the other chap is meant to be able to cover both left sided defensive positions.
However due to the disposal of Doherty we now need a new RB - surely we aren't going to play Traore there. Not only does it waste his attacking talents - massive by the way - but he is also not a very good defender!

6.) 08 Sep 2020 12:27:42
Midfield wise don't forget we also have Shabani, he's another prospect.

7.) 08 Sep 2020 14:10:18
Nuno. ES I've just read that Shabani may be going. Though it's in a newspaper so it must be true!

8.) 08 Sep 2020 16:10:52
I could see him going out on loan to the Champ cause that's a pretty awful injury and coming straight into the Prem from that would be a big ask for anyone! Not sure we'd sell him yet mind cause it would be at a loss and they clearly rate him ๐Ÿ‘.

9.) 08 Sep 2020 16:35:37
BullysBoy agreed terrible injury. I read that Claudio Ranieri was interested, maybe a loan who knows!



26 Jul 2020 20:01:32
Well that's pretty much the worst possible end to the season! The FA should be ashamed of there use of VAR, it's robbed us of Europe but worse its robbed Bournemouth of Prem footy possibly financial stability! Just SO wrong! ๐Ÿ˜ก.

BullysBoy II

1.) 27 Jul 2020 01:26:42
VAR has been nothing but a shambles this season. It cost Wolves (to my knowledge) 5 points (Leicester, Burnley and Liverpool - Leicester and Burnley four points denied winning goals and an equalizer against Liverpool, If Iโ€™ve missed any please correct me) .

I was all all for VAR but itโ€™s been a poor show this season. Not just for Wolves.

2.) 27 Jul 2020 11:45:52
Reg VAR and this is just from an Everton point of view so can only comment on our games although I will point out 3 decisions that had nothing to do Everton
1 VAR overturned the refs decision to award Brighton a pen a game we were in total control of until that point the FA sent an apology to the club
2 sheff utd their first goal was a foul on Pickford
3 Bournmouth cross comes in wilson is offside ball goes over him and its headed back across and wilson scores a header VAR stated second phase of play
Arsenal we should of had 2 pens
spurs we should of had 2 pens
Man utd 93rd minute VAR disallowed a winning goal as sigs who was on his backside was apparently impeding six foot six de gea
Norwich there's was not a pen we should of had 1 pen and they should of had a man dismissed now I won't count the Bournemouth and sheff utd games as we were well beaten but that's 15 points we have lost now I bet you guys could do a similar list now to the ones that involve other teams Liverpool twice had players who handled in the area which should of been pens they went straight down the other end and scored VAR allowed the goals and stated second phase of play now to Burnley v Palace with palace winning 1-0 they crossed the ball it looked like handball but ref waved play on burnley broke and scored VAR chalked the goal off and pulled the game back for a pen for palace to go 2-0 up why was that not second phase of play my take on it is its used to benefit certain teams over others and its certainly easier to penalise an Everton or a Wolves than a Liverpool chelsea or Man utd.

3.) 27 Jul 2020 11:49:57
7 points it's cost us Debs. Some guy tweeted a stat sheet yesterday.

4.) 27 Jul 2020 12:54:11
Cheers RKO! makes it even more frustrating. The FA should get all managers (including relegated managers) and review the season in terms of VARโ€™s performance and how it can be improved. I cannot remember seeing a match where the ref went and looked at a monitor on the sideline (I stand to be corrected on this one) .

5.) 27 Jul 2020 14:33:09
Even Macca of all people said the ref should go view the monitor at that penalty Burnley cheated for against us.

6.) 27 Jul 2020 22:51:02
Bramley- whilst they are all good examples of VARS many faults the Bournemouth one is the worst for me! Because there was no matter of opinion to be considered or point of view or even context! Sat in their little booth they could CLEARLY see like the REST of the world that a ball had crossed the line and a goal had not been given and STILL they sat there and did nothing?! If you EVER needed a sign that a system was broke well there it is! I'm not against technology in football, BUT I am against rushing it in when there has clearly been no where near enough thought or lessons learnt from previous trials!

7.) 28 Jul 2020 13:19:50
Just reading that Bournemouth are looking to sue VAR for loss of earnings after it failed to award Sheff Utd a goal v Villa which was clearly over the line and which resulted in VAR admitting it was wrong. That point which Villa earnt has cost Bournemouth. Goes to prove that VAR is a joke.

8.) 28 Jul 2020 15:51:47
Yeah bullysboy ll VAR doesn't work for me do you celebrate do you not celebrate offside by a big toe certain teams getting decisions just because of who they are me I was all for it I'm now totally against it.

9.) 28 Jul 2020 17:07:47
I think we should look to sue VAR too for loss of earnings it cost us 4th place.
Hopefully other clubs that VAR have cost a lot will sue too if Bournemouth are succesful it could open a whole can of worms on VAR and the officials who too should be sued imo.

10.) 28 Jul 2020 17:13:48
That'll be a searing inditement on VAR if it even makes it to court. The problem will be: if the decision was in Bournemouth's favour then a legal precedent would be made, that would open the flood gates for future cases. I think the PL might just try to buy Bourenmeouth's silence.

11.) 28 Jul 2020 21:25:07
You're right Debbie, the PL and FA will do anything to protect the big 6 and the PL brand.

12.) 30 Jul 2020 12:22:25
Not sure goalline technology is the same company that operates VAR however VAR operatives ought to have visually checked I would have thought.



27 Jun 2020 07:43:02
Anyone else starting to worry that Pool didn't want to pay ยฃ50m for Werner because they are going to go for Adama instead? Werner wouldn't have suited there system where as (and I hate saying it) but Adama could be devastating in it! I REALLY hope that isn't the case, if we finish the window with Raul and Adama it would have been a successful window for me! C'mon boys, get Nunos contract done and the rest will hopefully take care of itself! COYW.

BullysBoy II

1.) 27 Jun 2020 09:01:06
Not worried at all. Liverpool are not in a financially strong position.

2.) 27 Jun 2020 11:05:18
This may be click-bate fake news, but has anyone seen reports that Costa is on the list submitted to the PL of players to be retained by Wolves? I quote from Football Insider:

". the Premier Leagueโ€™s official retained list released in the last 24 hours names Costa among the senior professionals staying on at Wolves"

I can't see how this is true, unless Leeds United has found a legal loop hole to avoid paying ยฃ15mil for Costa. A more extreme view is that Traore is being sold and Nuno wants Costa back. Probably complete B/ S. Even if Traore was leaving Nuno would have better options to bring in than Costa.

{Ed002's Note - You have misunderstood it. The retained list reflects the players contracted to the club at this time and those for which agreements have been agreed to be sold in the summer wil stay on the list until the transfer window opens and they can be registered for their new club. Perhaps of more importance is the Wolves released list - those players leaving on a free: Jordan Graham, William Connor, Phil Ofosu-Ayeh, Callum Thompson and Ming-Yang Yang.}

3.) 27 Jun 2020 11:08:10
Traore has been developing into a world-class player before our very eyes. Look how he can play against the likes of Liverpool and Man City. This boy can perform against anyone and he's fearless.

4.) 27 Jun 2020 11:26:49
Thanks Ed002.
Sad to see Jordan Graham leaving. He was unlucky with injuries etc and now a fully-fit Graham is no longer good enough for new Wolves. A move to the Championship next season with his former club Villa might suit.

5.) 27 Jun 2020 16:50:57
that supposed donkey had a great game today and isn't given the credit he deserves. gives everything every game he plays and does all the dirty work.

OK so like all of us regulars I try not to give it the big one on here cause let's be honest we are all part of the pack and close friends so what's the point?! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ BUT at the start of this Euros like a few on here I said England should finally have a team that could do something and of course one of our fellow wanderers said 'well Portugal will get further' (good man cause that's basically backing the club at this stage, Wolveugals:)

So I said let's see! Not sure who it was and I don't care cause I know enough about these pages to say they will be VERY happy to be wrong! ๐Ÿ‘It's coming home guys!

Nice to see you buzzing with delight bullysboy.
I can't wait to read your post when we (wolves win something) .
Fairplay to you mate same as greyleg.
I thought we wouldn't be as good as we have been.
My first as middle aged, England in a major final in my lifetime.
Roll on Sunday.

Last night was awesome I can't remember watching a game and being so absolutely exhausted at the end of it! Immensely proud of our players I thought we were excellent although we have played better in some games but they got us over the line. The scenes afterwards were incredible. Hope we can do it on Sunday but I will be proud of them whatever the result as long as they continue to give everything. Come on England!

3.) 09 Jul 2021 13:30:10

They have seen the whole country, in turmoil, sadness, down hearted, hardships, and not knowing when the good days would be back,
So they have committed to lifting the country's spirits, with there determination , to make all of us
Feel better in life, and pull together, to beat the array of barriers put before us, Let's stick together, be sad together, and now,
Be bloody happy together

23 Feb 2021 16:42:55
I see Nuno is out saying that Semedo has stepped up and he's right to do so cause the lad probs needs a lift. However for me I'm not sure it's about him 'stepping up' more about a wing back FINALLY being asked to play wing back! It's the same with Jose, those of us debating his impact can't really do it, because he came in as we switched back to 5-3-2.

So what part in the change of results do Nelson or Jose play, well probs a little. BUt for me the switch in formations is the reason for the change in form. Moving forward if we want to get anywhere with transfers we HAVE to bring them in to suit the formation we Want them to play in. Sounds simple eh ๐Ÿ™ˆ.

BullysBoy II

1.) 23 Feb 2021 18:23:24
While Semedo has improved going forward he is still found wanting defensively and does get caught ball watching. Jose needs a goal or two before the end of the season if we are to make the move permenant, he does have something about him and could do with better service .

2.) 24 Feb 2021 09:52:09
Bully - completely agree.
As you said on another thread Doherty outside of the system is not half the player he is in the system.
In other words the system is really important and we had one that worked extremely well.
That is what makes the decision to change the system (and then to rub salt in the wound buy players unsuited for that new system) insane!
Apparently it was because we lost to Seville and had to change to progress.
Well progress didn't look good did it!
Just as Devil's advocate what would have happened if Jimenez had scored the penalty.
Seville then couldn't have sat back and waited for the inevitable chance.
After 70 mins at 1 down they would have had to stop playing possession football and actually tried to break us down, pushing players forward and making riskier passes.
Guess what, we might well have been delighted with this as the minutes ticked by they would have been forced to commit suicide and left us chances to score a second or even a third!
Would we then have beaten United and then won the trophy?
Well Seville did?
Nuno quite correctly recognised the squad was too small, unbalanced and needed upgrading.
If we had been playing Champions league football, {the winner of Europa get a champs league place} this season would we have done so?
As we weren't we decided to do nothing about the squad and instead throw the baby out with the bath water by changing the system that had worked so well for something we were totally unprepared to play.
A relegation scare later we have reverted to rationality and hopefully have merely wasted a year.
However I fear that not only is this year wasted but we have made it much harder to get top quality players to join next summer. For Wolves it is hard when you are coming not off of a successful season but after one in which you flirted with relegation?
We have a huge summer ahead of us please let's not make stupid mistakes again!

3.) 24 Feb 2021 10:58:36
Agree guys. As your all aware this season has produced some strange results, for every team, and at one point we went thru a dodgy spell, well let's blame it on C.V.,
So for me this season has been one to get thru, unscathed, ( unfortunately Jimenez) and rebuild for new season, new goals, maybe some new additions, let's play for the pride/ passion/ performance for us fans to banter over

4.) 27 Feb 2021 17:03:33
Perfect post greylegwolfcouldnโ€™t agree more the season has been strange for everyone the premier league as does football needs its fans and hopefully weโ€™ll be back at the mol next season progressing as we were before cv struck ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.



15 Dec 2020 21:57:45
Get in! We really needed that, hell I REALLY needed that! Been a tough ride already this season but a performance like that was just what was needed, not just the result but the grit shown by the players.

They wanted that then, Sat would have hurt! Also nice to see more youngsters play Otasowie had Kante bouncing off him at times, not easy that especially at his age. Great to see Neto and Podence finally have some reward for their hard work.

Those two could have quite the future, the speed of both players feet is scary at times! For me that's the back four idea put to bed, it shows that actually it doesn't massively change our attacking capabilities. Just seems to make us give cheap goals away for me. Great assist for Vitinha as well pretty much rounded off a great night, happy days ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿบ.

BullysBoy II

1.) 15 Dec 2020 23:08:36
Agreed BullysBoy. I don't think we have the personnel for a back 4 right now, especially against the better teams. Safety in numbers

It's time Adama asked himself a few questions. He's got to start taking these opportunities. Neto is an absolute gem. He's forced his way into the team with shear guts and determination. Adama take note. Saiss tremendous again, marcal steady, Neves, strangely, had some room tonight. Dendonker looks like he's got competition in otasowie. About time as well. Vithina, again looked bright. Silva, for me, is very lightweight but that can be improved upon, but what worries me with him is that he has no pace. His future is as a target man in and around the box, Giroud like. At this moment in time, and I'd really like to be saying something different, but I think we've paid well over the odds for him.
Anyway. A great win. I still think we're going to be mid table and we're still a window or two from being a top six team.

2.) 16 Dec 2020 05:08:49
Spot on, Sharesum. Neves did find acres of space, but did very little with it. He's supposed to be a 'playmaker' yet he kept playing the ball backwards, instead of driving forward. Anyway, should focus on positives as there were 6 or 7 excellent performances tonight! FWAW.

3.) 16 Dec 2020 07:44:37
My villa fan work colleague watched the match and he told me we were so much better going back to 5 at the back and he couldn't understand why nuno had changed the system.

Bullys boy we've allowed ourselves to get to pessimistic. We're probably 2 points down on last season. Last time we took 10 points off City, Villa and West Ham (3 each) and 1 from Leicester. We got 0 against Liverpool. However this year we have gained 3 points from Chelsea, Sheff Utd and Arsenal (1 point last time) All other games were the same. So we are 2 points worse off with a newish side that's still developing and the last 2 seasons we were better in the second half of the season.

So we FINALLY have a club captain that is the role model pro, first class leader and just retained his place in the England squad! Yet still some on here are doubting his ability to deliver based off one bad game when the whole team played a shocker?! The doubters need to give their heads a wobble! What a week for Connor, new five year contract and a MUCH deserved recall to the national team! Nice to see people that know what they are talking about giving him some recognition, even if one or two on here won't! ๐Ÿ™„ COYW ๐Ÿบ.

Great to see Coady called up again to the England squad.
He has pkayed every minute in the premier league since our promotion.
We are in the top ten best defencive record the last 2 seasons.
Stats don't lie and Coady is the heartbeat of our defence.
Coady imo like yours bullysboy and many others fully merits his call up.

Spot on guys. Top player and Captain. Don't think we'd be where we are without him. Every team has a heartbeat, he's ours!

Now let's get Fulham out of the way. Like a lot of teams that played in August we've been very up and down. West Ham were very good last week and are doing it again today. We will be ok soon this is still our pre season.

Well Ole Gunnar has wound me right up! Apparently his little 18 protege needed a rest after playing half a season (half of which was from the bench) and it's England's fault for calling him up! Pathetic, if representing your country is SUCH a chore then do us all a favour and retire from national football! I honestly don't care how good he is, we know better than anyone the strength is in the pack and if he doesn't want to play his part in that then we are better off without him! Rant over, sorry ๐Ÿ˜’.

Too much money too young mate. Lack of management and leadership. They want to be treated like adults until it doesnโ€™t suit them.

Haha, no probs Rated. To be honest that's why I've been a little quiet on here of late, I find that silly season can get a bit too silly for me! ๐Ÿ‘.

Be fair Rated fella, he's now been cut by about four different managers at this stage (in fact five with Lage) . Not saying Nuno didn't have his quirks with selection (he definitely did) but sooner or later Cutrone has to ask himself why he's not hitting his potiential yet and it can't just be the managers at fault! ๐Ÿ‘.

Ps- sorry Wonky I couldn't resist, I realise that you meant Giroud to AC which is probs true, especially as they will be making room for his wages ๐Ÿ‘.

Both those rumours been doing the rounds since before the end of last season, would love it to be true as Leal looks like a good player. If there's anything in it I suspect it would be a loan with an option. Mind you, I am unsure what Giroud signing for Inter has to do with the game time of a youngster who plays for AC?! ๐Ÿคฃ.

Trincao was being talked about as a wonder kid a year or so ago and we've just signed him with a future fee agreed! It's odd because the theme on here from many has been that Fosun are asset stripping and next stop on the track is relegation?! People talking about the players we MAY lose, yet here we are three players signed and still none sold?! It would seem that Fosun can't even do a fire sale correctly eh?! ๐Ÿ˜ Could it be that they are in fact trying to improve the club, as I said yesterday these conspiracies are laughable really! ๐Ÿคฃ.

No Ken, I don't think that's a big ask and like you say the man himself has said that (2 players per position) . But surely that's what he seems to be doing right now, using his freidnlies well to test out who may or may not be ready? Until he knows the answer to that he may not be certain where he needs to spend? I've said it before, the club have VERY specifically chosen a manager that has built his cv on youth development. I'm sure that wasn't a coincidence or accident. Like I say let's debate the transfers once the window shuts, cause until then we just look like a group of kids shouting 'But I want it now' at a shop window! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘.

Hey Ken, sorry fella I wasn't actually speaking about you to be honest as I ALWAYS find you have a coherent/ valid point even when I don't agree with you ๐Ÿ‘
On the transfers I will say what I do every window, let's evaluate it at the end of the window cause that's when it matters. You are correct the last two weren't good but if honest I also don't think it was as bad as some have made out either. The problem is that we got the biggest deals wrong and that can sting.
I was also just making the point that I think some peeps don't get how modern owners operate. Jeff may have overseen the esports deal but I suspect he has VERY little to do with transfers. He pays people good money to do that job and he HAS to put faith in them. As for the updates I'm not sure what people want him to say, nothing has changed. Genuine question to anyone on what they expect to hear him say?! The plan is still the plan, short of him popping up to say 'all is well everyone have a good summer, I'm not sure what else peeps want?! The market this year is a slow one so (for me) I don't see the value of panicking. Look, I know we all want what's best for the club. I'm just not sure why some seem to think that a company that has the most to lose over anyone associated with the club suddenly don't want to improve the value of their OWN investment?!

And this is why people like myself and Future are taking a back seat on here. Its the same EVERY transfer window, a natural void is created by the lack of actual news and the usual suspects just fill the space with whinging!

It wouldn't be so bad if it was at least coherent whinging but to be honest it's a kin to a child screaming at a balloon as it floats away into the sky! Even the Eds (rightly:) asking why people are saying Fosun have lost interest?!

I think the biggest problem is that most on here just don't seem to get how modern owners operate (again the Ed has rightly made this point before:) Gone are the days where the chicken farmers of Blackburn are shouting about signing Ronaldinho and what a relief it is!

The modern owner doesn't feel the need to fill the dead space with pointless, empty promises that they could never have fulfilled anyway! As people bang on about Fosuns silence could someone please show me an owenr that's doing weekly podcasts?! And more to the point what would the value in it be?! Modern owners have the sense to do what they need to and spending hours coming up with perfectly worded catches phrases means absolutely nothing, do you think the City fans are worried by what the Sheiks up to this week?!

No, Jeff is busy doing his job and luckily part of that does not cover stroking the confidence for a few negative fans (again what a relief that is)! ๐Ÿคฃ

Also Ken I used to say the same about signings fella, assuming Nuno was being overuled. How surprised I was then when I discovered that in fact part of the reason Fosun fell out with Nuno was due to his not listening to Sellars or the rest of the transfer team.

Nuno wanted Semedo and Nuno chose Podence (over Olmo), not going over old ground here more just making the point that I'm pretty sure Bruno would be given the same respect on that front ๐Ÿ‘.

Nonsense, class players are class players and the man next to them doesn't change that! Who was playing alongside Brunon Fernandes at Sporting? I'll give you a fiver if you can tell me without looking it up on Google, I haven't even bothered! I don't need too, he scored 39 goals in 83 games for Sporting, now THAT is a world class CM! When Kante played for Lec they won a league, he moved to Chelsea they won a league, France bought him in they won a cup! This is the what truly world class players do, they shine DESPITE their circumstances. And I'm afraid Rueben hasn't shone regularly since we left the Champ!
You also need to check ya stats on Dendoncker (not sure why playground names are needed btw) cause our points to game ratio was substantially better when he played! Now I'm not saying he's the perfect player but a defensive liability he is not! Quite the opposite in fact as anyone that saw WHU put 4 past us without him would tell you! What he lacks is the vision to open a defence, but that doesn't seem to be a problem when he plays next to De Bruyne for Belgium does it?! I really do like Neves and I don't think we'd get much better BUT I'm sick of people making excuses 'it's Nunos fault for the way he used him' 'it's Dendonkers fault for the way he plays' 'he should be on more set pieces' (despite his record with those being woeful by the way)! He's a good player but he hasn't kicked on and he NEEDS to find that next gear if he's going to realise his potiential. Weather that's with us or with a new challenge time will tell ๐Ÿ‘.

I always liked Cav but he just never seemed to get fit enough for the rigours of Eng footy. He's rarely used for a full 90 mins and doesn't score enough these days. I like the guy but there's a reason he wasn't always starting for a team fighting relegation ๐Ÿ‘.
