Cowley: Blues Target Morrell Turned Down a Significantly Better Offer
at 10:28:52

@Blues1, I appreciate your point of view but I think that Cowley has probably stirred things up on other matters in recent weeks rather than with this specific interview.

Also, compare Morrell's position with some of our recent signings, e.g. Conor Chaplin. I'm sure Conor could have stayed in the Championship (where he's played around 80 games in the past two seasons), presumably on higher wages, rather than dropping a division to play for us. So does that mean he's only come here because he's not up for the fight of getting into a Championship team?

Cowley: Blues Target Morrell Turned Down a Significantly Better Offer
at 19:42:50

Sorry but I've got to disagree with some of the above comments. Firstly, Cowley doesn't mention Ipswich in the quotes given in the article, just "another club", which is fair enough in the context of the story.

Also, whilst I'd have liked Cook to have got his man and for Morrell to have come to PR, surely there's something admirable about him taking a lower offer from elsewhere with the expectation of actually getting onto the field and playing football? Isn't that attitude the opposite of what we have criticised certain players for when they have moved from us to higher-placed clubs where they would just be bench-warmers?

Joining Town Keane's Biggest Regret

In fairness, joining us probably was his biggest regret as it exposed his inadequacies and effectively put a halt to his managerial career.

Cowley: Jacobs Has Been “Mucked Around, Messed Around” By Town
at 14:11:44

We were in talks about Jacobs back in June but it sounds like Portsmouth only accepted the terms on Thursday. Maybe not all our fault it fell through then?

Blues Pull Out of Jacobs Deal
at 08:06:54

Whilst I have some sympathy for Jacobs here, we first held talks with him back in June. I don't know the reason why matters weren't concluded then but if it was due to his agent playing hardball over the terms or using our interest to try to get a better deal elsewhere then the sympathy goes out of the window.

If he can knuckle down and stay injury-free, he'll be a good signing for them. It's a big if, though.

Gibbs Joins Norwich as Clubs Agree Compensation
at 12:14:56

My only problem with this story is the bit that says he was keen to stay. Clearly he wasn't as otherwise he would have taken what was on offer and worked his socks off to get into the first team, at which point he would have been offered an improved contract.

Dozzell Deal Done
at 10:28:37

He's still only 22 so plenty of time to add the other things to his game that need to go with his undoubted talent. Whether he gets there remains to be seen and we can't really afford to have too many like that in the same team. Maybe flying the nest will help with his development.

To be fair, he had more good days than most of his team mates and did at least chip in with a few goals. He should prove to be a good signing for Wigan.
